It feels like Monday because Monday I was too busy to realize it was Monday

April 1, 2008

I am having a bad day, already.

OK, I’m not really having a bad day, I’m just not starting out superb. For starters, I got home quite late last night after a long day—one that began at 6:45, and involved driving to a nearby suburb, among other things—and I was just exhausted. But I still had to get up and take the dog out this morning because, hey, the dog has to pee. On my way out with him, my non-slip waterproof boots slipped on the non-slip rubberized stair covers on the steps going out the back door of my building and I bonked my thigh (which I already bruised last night) and mildly twisted my ankle. The dog did not even look up.

I, of course, went back to bed.

Now I’m up and the dog is ignoring me, which is weird, we are out of coffee, except the pot Mr. Angst made and left for me (thank you, thank you!) ((We are expecting more coffee today. Yes, I order my coffee online. Yes, this is really necessary. Coffee is very important; it’s the first thing I consume every day, and I want it to be the coffee I like.)), and it looks like it might actually snow today—you know, like the digusting spitting rain from yesterday wasn’t enough. Meanwhile, I’ve ordered a new trench coat, but it won’t arrive in time to keep me dry today—instead, it will arrive just in time for sunny weather. Awesome.

Finally, I am having a meeting about The Task today and I am, frankly, petrified. I haven’t looked at it since I turned it in, but I’m pretty sure it has NOT gotten better. So I don’t know what that’s going to be like, but I can’t even imagine a scenario in my mind that’s not awful because I really can’t imagine anything good coming of it.

I think today might be the day I go set up my tanning membership. ((I’m in a wedding right after graduation, and my dress is a color that will look much better on me if I’m tan. And yes, I know tanning “causes cancer” and yes, I know they make fake tanning stuff. The problem with the fake stuff is that it actually rubs off of me. I have two tubes of very good, very expensive self-tanner that comes right off if I exfoliate the day after applying it. Seriously. So I will be tanning, and unapologetically. I have Mediterranean heritage, and my skin can handle quite a bit of tanning—and I won’t be maxing out. I just have to get rid of the pasty winter-whiteness. Plus, I really do think the UV rays will help my mood.)) I need some UV rays to lift my mood.

    Sorry about your bad day. I won’t even harass you about the tanning thing! Actually, I tanned on and off during my early years of college and a few times afterwards and I’m still alive (so far)!

    The dog was ignoring you? That IS weird..usually dogs are very attentive, aren’t they? Did he not have his morning cup of coffee either?

    disclaimer: i totally go tanning all the time, so i’m not trying to be hypocritical or anything, just some friendly advice, because i also fake-tan.

    you probably shouldn’t be exfoliating *after* you apply. You should exfoliate right before you apply the lotion and then leave it aloooone. maybe there’s a good reason why you do, if it’s your thing or whatever, but if there’s any way you can keep from exfoliating the next day, definitely do. then reapply every third or fourth day, exfoliating right before and you’ll maintain a good color, without turning orange/streaky.

    but yea, fake tanner pretty much rubs off of everyone if they go a’scrubbing 24 hours after they apply.
