Manic Monday #47

A lot of people told me I was really quiet today.  I tried to convince them it was because I was really busy. I don't think it worked. 

8 of us are in the midst of doing our version of the Biggest Loser, which is running for three months.  And I will win.  Why?  Because I eat healthy and work out?  No, because when money is on the line I will shut it down.  And by it, I mean my lethargic lifestyle and love of carbs.  This contest is mine.  So, to those coworkers not in the contest - stop asking me why my candy dish is empty.  Keep it up and I won't let use any of my winnings to fill it back up.

Who has two thumbs and almost slipped and fell out on the parking lot today?  This gal!  (And practically everyone else.  Dear building, what happened to that wacky beet juice stuff that makes the ice go away?)

Do you ever prepare a lie, just in case you have to use it?  I did that today.  I came straight from my mom's house to work this morning, and forgot to pack work shoes, so I wore my running shoes, which is against dress code.  So I figured if anyone asked, I would tell them "Oh, I did something to my foot this weekend and had to wear these."  A good lie.  Simple.  Brief.  And easy to believe.  But of course, no one asked, so that one can go back in the ol' file cabinet in my brain.

Sometimes I fear that I will start singing the song playing on my iPod out loud.  And then everyone will know I paid $1.29 for "Grenade".

Always good to have an explanation ready when necessary.

I think it falls into the same category as always having a snack on hand, or an escape route planned.

iTunes sucks.

I got Grenade for 89 cents through another site.

Your blog is hilarious, Ms. Scribe...keep up the great work--it's tabbed on my toolbar's favorites.

You'll have to sing every song out loud too clutter the playlist. Grenade will blend in.
