Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

I have nothing interesting to say

My chronic sleepiness has made me bland. Bland as a plain turkey sandwich.

So, in no particular order, a bunch of bread and meat. No mustard, no lettuce, no nothin!

* I have recently become obsessed with making smoothies. When I was in college, one of my roommates used to make me one for breakfast sometimes. (Which, by the way, is just SO nice when you think about it--I'd be, like, in the bathroom blow-drying my hair, and she'd just come in, without fanfare, and leave a tall glass of frosty, fruity goodness for me to drink while I got ready. I made them sometimes, too, but not NEARLY as often.) Anyway, so I've been on a breakfast smoothie kick. This is what I dump in the blender: ice, orange juice, frozen berries, and half a cup of raspberry yogurt. Try not to be too stunned by my skills in the kitchen while you drink this baby in:

(I SWEAR I have tried posting the damn picture for an hour and it WON'T WORK. So screw it. Pretend you can see a very unremarkable glass full of magenta-y, slushy liquid, and I'll try later. Much later. When my laptop is not in danger of being tossed out the window later.)

Anyway, I need to start branching out, so if you've got any suggestions ...

* I locked my keys in the car yesterday. I told you I was tired! I didn't care, though. I try not to let that stuff stress me out too much because, I mean, what are you going to do about it? Getting stressed out ain't gonna unlock that door! So I just laughed. (And yes, it definitely helped that I was at work, where I had to be for the next eight-plus hours anyway.)

I have a lot of experience locking my keys in the car. I think it's become an annual event. Last summer (almost EXACTLY a year ago, come to think of it), I locked my keys in the car while I was getting gas. The year before that (also in August!) I snuck out to the grocery store during work to get a couple bags of chips for a barbeque we were having at lunch. That time, I locked my keys in the car while it was RUNNING!

Basically, what you can take away from this is that I'm an airhead.

* I laughed SO HARD yesterday. I laugh a lot (and have the budding wrinkles to prove it), but this was like spit-water-out-all-over-yourself laughing. (Literally. I was sitting at my desk, took a sip of water and WHOOOSH ... like a human sprinkler. I seriously drenched myself.) There can't be anything more fun than laughing so hard you can't even swallow your water. I LOVE that.

* VH1 has the 40 most awesomely bad love songs on right now. But I like some of these songs! HA HA HA. "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men? Oh my gosh, I used to listen to Boyz II Men all the time. And I'm sorry, but I thought "Hold onto the Night" by Richard Marx was soooo romantic back in the day. Ha ha.

Bahhhhhhh!!! Michael Bolton mullet alert. Must. Turn. Channel.

* I have no idea what I'm wearing to work tomorrow. I'm sick of summer clothes. Except for flip-flops, which I could wear every day of my life.

* I forgot what I was going to say next. Um ... oh, well.

Another smoothie fan?? I love them and make them all the time...my favorite is OJ/banana/mango/vanilla yogurt.

I am not big on flip flops but I do love sandals and wish I could wear them all year...our summers are just too short!

Several years ago I smugly was telling a friend how I NEVER locked my keys in my car. The following week I did it five times. This is karma's way of saying F you.

Flip-flops, oh how I love thee. Sorry to hear about Swishy Girl's sleep challenges.

Oohhhh ... Swishy's gonna be trying some new smoothies this weekend! I'll save you some, Beth :)

Eileen, FIVE TIMES? For real? That is the funniest thing ever.

MM, I can't remember EXACTLY what it was ... I'm positive I couldn't do it justice anyway. It hilarious though--I was trying to be quiet because I was at my desk (I'm doing, like, the quiet laugh, where you're laughing so hard you're shaking) and then I just lost it. Sooo, so funny.
