Thursday Ten: The Pinkie Finger Debacle Edition

1. The Princess jammed her finger on Tuesday. She jammed it doing some kind of flip off the bars in gymnastics – and between the purpley color and the swelling, it seemed like a visit to the doc might be a good thing. Sure, her coach said it was only jammed, but I’m not entirely sure where her medical degree came from (Oh wait. She DOESN’T. HAVE. ONE.) – and after hearing horror stories of fingers that didn’t get properly set, “better safe than sorry” seemed the way to go. Verdict: It’s fractured. Not much they can do about it, but it’s good to know.

2. New music that’s not really that new. Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, “Things I Never Needed”. A guitar teacher on Twitter was talking about it – and I like Grace Potter, but I’m not familiar enough that I know the whole song catalog. So I’m listening to TONS of Grace Potter.

3. Some days I order a nonfat cappuccino. Some days I order a soy cappuccino. And some days, I get to the counter to place my order and am racked with indecision. Thankfully, the gurus of coffee said – do half soy, half skim. And I did. And it was good. AND NOW I NEVER HAVE TO MAKE A MILK DECISION FOR MY CAPPUCCINO AGAIN.

4. I’m such a Sharpie pen addict, I bring my own pen to work every day. At the end of the work day, I toss it back into my bag with my to-do list notebook, but I can’t stand to use their pens. I may have a Sharpie problem.

5. Last week, I bought some new deodorant. That’s not really newsworthy – I mean, I wear deodorant daily. I have a very sensitive sense of smell, and so I really can’t stand the thought of not smelling okay. I got something different. Nah, I’m not going to tell you the brand – mostly because I don’t remember and I’m too lazy to get up – but it ended up being extremely powdery-scented. So much so that I was sitting at my desk the other day, extremely aware of my arm pits smelling like baby powder. And it was awful. I replaced it tonight. I couldn’t take it anymore.

6. Yesterday, The Princess and her friend wanted to bake so I let them take over the kitchen and make chocolate chip cookies. When she was done she HID THE COOKIES FROM ME. Seriously: I have no idea where the cookies are. And right now, I’d really REALLY like one. Do I know where they are? Nope. No clue. She’s a smart girl, that one.

7. After two days of wearing tall shoes to work, I wore flats today. My pants are too long. Or my legs are too short. Either way… I need a tailor. Or stilts.

8. Project Runway is on and my attention span is shot and I’ve barely watched it. That’s how you know it’s been a long day.

9. Tomorrow, I have the day off my new job but plenty of work to do at my old job and that doesn’t seem very relaxing, does it?  Some of the ArtPrize exhibitors have their pieces installed in Grand Rapids already – and I think me and my camera will need to take a trip to see some pretty things. Mostly because I love ArtPrize and partly because I’ve taken some rotten pictures this week. My creativity is lacking.

10. So, I need a tenth thing, and I don’t really have one, so tell me something about your week (OH MY GOD I AM SO LAZY AND UNCREATIVE TODAY). How are you?  What’s your favorite song these days? Seen any good movies lately?

  1. I once had this citrus deodorant that I like pretty well…UNTIL the little girl I was nannying at the time said, “Your armpits smell like Pine-Sol”. *sigh*

  2. I tend to favor unscented deodorant because of my sensitive sense of smell. But when I ran out of the kind I was using, I pulled out the Secret that Klout sent me. It smells alright but sometimes I catch myself thinking, “what is that I’m smelling?” and then I’m like, “oh yeah, that’s me.” lol
