Radiogurl a la Carte

All A-bored

Allergies suck, and not in a good way. I'm alive and more or less well, but with my allergies flaring up I bit the bullet and gulped down some Benedryl this morning and last night. The one last night knocked me out; I slept like the proverbial dead, don't think I so much as turned over all night.

Granted, it really does alleviate a lot of the symptoms of the allergies, but it also leaves too groggy to really be effective. I'm barely dragging this afternoon and still have an hour and a half before I head home for the day. Fortunately we're going to have leftovers for dinner (chicken curry & rice) by MC's request, so I don't have to actually cook tonight.

Normally I enjoy cooking, but falling asleep at the stove isn't generally a good idea, either.

MC and I were out yesterday checking out thrift stores; we go periodically just to see what we can find. For example, yesterday we bought an old atlas for $3. It's useless as a road atlas, but the maps are absolutely gorgeous and the book is in pristine condition. It's over 40 years old and every page is perfect, just slightly yellowed. Between us, MC and I love both old maps and books, and have acquired entirely too many - especially considering we still don't own a bookcase of any kind and they're just stacked on the floor until we move!

I only have an hour left here at work but am thinking seriously of heading out of here early. I'm dragging my butt and have all of my work done. We need to do some updates to the studio website. I can do those from home, preferably after a nap.

Good lord, could I possibly be any more boring?

I personally am enjoying the process of being boring, but it makes for a mighty blah entry.

The only exciting things happening lately are interviews with artists (talked to a new singer this morning - his name is Pacer (www.pacersings.com). Other than that, heard about a bargain on a combination DVD & VCR, which we've talked about getting; and we looked at some used furniture, knowing when we move we're going to be starting from scratch, won't have anything but our computer desks.

All things considered, I suppose I should probably sign off and see if I can't come up with something a bit more exciting for my next entry, hehe.

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
