where troubles melt like lemon drops


I had been feeling one of those "what am I doing with my life/why am i here" posts coming on, like a common cold or something, but then laziness sort of shuffled in sleepily and suggested, "why don't you take a nap?" And I don't know about you, but I will listen to laziness. I have a soft spot for it. It's called my bed.

So part of me is jealous that some of my good friends are gallivanting around the world, in Hong Kong and China and India and Uganda and Guyana, and I am here, where I was the day before, even the year before, passing the big two year mark at the first job ... And that's all I have to say for now. Part of me is chomping at the bit to go somewhere new, geographically or not, and the other part is like, well, your brain doesn't work and you just used figurative language comparing yourself to a horse. You know, when I was little, I never wanted a pony. I did read Misty of Chincoteague (wow, there's a foundation!)

I think if there were a game called Tangents or Unnecessary Metaphors (age 9 to 99!), I'd be really good, maybe even a .. WINNER!

So there's my apology for being all discursive. And to continue doing so, let me just say, the season finale for The Office was so squeeeee. Do you have to look up squeee? I don't even know where you'd do that. Ah. Wikipedia. In any case, Jim Halpert/John Krasinski, because you know - the character you play is so much like yourself and it's not like there's anything to acting or whatnot... hello! new tv-land boyfriend.

Y'all are being reminded of so much today. Coherency is not currency in Janetland. Janetland also hopes to build a secret tunnel to tv-land.

This pitter-patter entry is dedicated to one KP, who "reads all the blogs" and is thusly, cool.

Hi Janet!
I like your blog!
Is the title from Oz or from Iz?
I love IZ's music, we danced to him at our wedding.
