Thursday Ten: Makin’ Up New Words Edition

1. If you follow me on Twitter, you know one of my new words in my vocab is “peecrastination” (I usually post this with the TM trademark symbol, because… intellectual property and all). If you weren’t aware, peecrastination is when you are so engrossed with something – a project, reading a book, watching a movie – that you ignore the need to pee. And just hold it. A REALLY LONG TIME. Peecrastination, folks. It’s a thing. (It’s also my word, so, I’ll expect the royalty check ANYDAYNOW).

2. Guitar lesson went well today. It’s frustrating, though – a few weeks ago, I had the F chord down, today I was struggling. It’s worse, I think – to know I can do it and then just have a day where I can’t make it work. Frustrating. Did a little bit of Tom Petty, a little bit of Counting Crows, and started working on the Juliana Theory a bit more.

3. My fingers HURT when I left my lesson today, though. Wow. I had marks on my fingers from my strings. Not just the indents but MARKS. Think maybe my strings need some tlc.

4. Tonight I’m making cuban sandwiches – kind of like sloppy joes-ish (so, decidedly Americanized Cuban, if you will, I’m sure)Spicy with lots of chorizo. I’m sure my kids won’t eat it. I gave up trying to make food they like because I get bored. Sooo, I make what I want and hope that they try enough to expand their boring horizons.

5. New music – a few Mat Kearney songs and also I’ve been giving some repeat love on my iPod to the Daughtry “Pokerface” cover, which I love.

6. I got the cutest pair of red shoes the other day. Red heels. I almost never wear  heels and I’ve certainly never owned red ones, but they are the cutest freakin’ things. Ask me how cute they are after I’ve worn them a few hours.

7. Peecrastination. I’m doing it. I’m having such a hard time coming up with ten things because all I can think about is, “Just a few more things and I’m done! I can get up then and go pee.” DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU, PEOPLE.

8. How long do you give a book to get interesting before you give up on it? I was reading a book my mom loaned me – but by page 65 I was still wanting to poke my eye out with flash drive (guess what’s sitting next to me?). I slammed the book shut and didn’t look back. Did I give up too early, or too late?

9. Because of all these crappy books I’ve been reading, I’m SO FAR BEHIND on reading magazines. I have a stack of mags about a mile high. Yikes. I have some catching up to do.

10. I’m still on a mission for the perfect recipe for mojitos, so if you have one you feel like sharing, please do!

  1. Haha! I TOTALLY peecrastinate. My husband gets so annoyed at me – apparently it’s a girl thing.

  2. Oh my gosh, I love the peecrastination thing! That was my biggest issue in the midst of my Twilight obsession. Not wise…especially not for a woman who’s carried 4 children! Gah!

    I’m getting better about giving up books early in the game. Used to read them all the way though no matter how horrid they were. Recently I made it 3 pages in before I knew it was a bad fit for me. Good for you for putting it down & walking away!

  3. Ok, I totally peecrastinate, as do most of the gals I work with – you are too creative! Let the book go. You may like it differently years from now, but right now you’re trying to force something that doesn’t need doing!
