Random thoughts

Posted by Lissa on May 13, 2009

  • “Free” does not equal “good.”  I took advantage of the med supplies at work to slap a band-aid over a healing wound, only to have the horrible thing stick to the scab and rip it completely off.  Go with Band-Aid, my friend.
  • Whoever said that gel nails could be removed by soaking in nail polish remover for ten minutes was a liar, a charlatan and a cad.  The only way to get those suckers off — short of going back to the nail salon — is to edge a nail-clipper under the base and pry upwards.  My (remainders of) nails look like they’ve been chewed by a bad-tempered badger.
  • What do you do when someone doesn’t get you a wedding present?  I don’t mind writing a thank-you note just for someone coming — but what if they THOUGHT they left a check and just forgot?  We’ve got just a few guests in that category and I’m completely flummoxed.
  • Rajah has been unbearably obnoxious lately — if he tries to bite me I scruff him and either blow in his face or flick water at him before sending him away with a shove.  Lately, his next action is to stalk me around the house until either a) he gets a bit of tasty, tasty flesh between his teeth, b) I chase him with a cup of water until he hides under the bed, and then I lock myself in the bathroom.  I think I want a dog.
  • My $10 digital watch that I love betrayed me this morning; it randomly chose to go off at 4:30 AM instead of 6:30 AM.  If it does it again I’m going to send the lil’ ticker Where The Bad Watches Go.
  • I can’t remember who wrote it, but it went something like this:  “So let me get this straight.  Perez Hilton asking a question about gay marriage is NOT controversial, but Miss California answering that question IS controversial?  Whaaaaaa?”  In a nutshell.
  • We got the CD with the digital negatives from the photographer yesterday.  May I please advise any budding photographers out there that the automatic “red-eye removal” program doesn’t work.  We were, however, amused by the frequent black eyes it bestowed on the portrait subjects.
  • I’m going up to visit my grandmother in Canada for Memorial Day weekend.  I’m so so excited to see her!!!
  • I love my family.  They’re all working so hard to be flexible to accommodate my schedule and, oh yeah, my new husband.  🙂
  • I’m still not over the thrill of saying “my husband.”  I hope that feeling lasts for a while!
  • “Diet Coke or coffee?” is a fallacious question.  Why choose one when you can drink both?
  • I need more coffee.
  • And more Diet Coke.

Happy Wednesday!

    Hopefully the thrill of saying “my husband” will never wear off.

    I know I still like saying “my wife”, even after all these years.

  2. Some gels can be soaked off in Acetone, others cannot. It depends on the which kind you use. Those that can be are usually called “soak-off gels”. Clever, right? You should NEVER pry off the nails. You are destined to ruin your natural nails that way. Traditional gel nails MUST be filed off by a nail tech to be removed without harming your natural nails.

    Are you sure that Rajah isn’t just quibbling about how often feeding time comes around? I mean, are you really, really sure?

    I was glad to see Mr. Trump championing Miss California on TV today. They are both getting loads of face time and camera time, Ms. Prejean gets to keep her Miss California crown, and Perez Hilton isn’t invited. Winners all around.

    As for the CD – that sounds like one of the story lines in Love Actually (delightful British romance comedy).

    You might try alternating the coffee and Diet Coke with large cups of hot decaf green tea (I like Celestial Seasonings), or Honey Lemon Ginseng herbal tea, from Celestial Seasonings. Lack of caffeine will *not*, contrary to rumors, rot the digestive tract. And the hot liquid will be more comforting.
