Scariest. Snack. Ever.

The holiday glutton-fest has begun in earnest in the office. Each day, four people are supposed to bring some sort of snack to share with everybody. Most of it has been the usual; chips, cans of nuts, cookies, etc. However, one of yesterday's offerings was kind of scary. It appeared that someone had attempted to make Rice Crispie treats, but deviated from the usual ingredients by using Cheerios. They also apparently wished to clean out their pantry, as the other ingredients included raisins, M & Ms, and pistachios. Instead of the usual squarish form of Rice Crispie treats, these were just globbed onto a plate, pretty much in one big lump. I gave the concoction a wide berth.

Today, I have several of my toes wrapped in band-aids because of yesterday's new shoes combined with too much walking and standing. By the end of the day, my feet were burning nubs of fiery pain, and today I have blisters. However, that's even a positive thing, because it means I'm actually meeting with clients again, so I have to wear nice shoes.
Shoes that kill, but nice nonetheless.

I know it seems like I'm just mailing in these latest entries, but I'm frelling exhausted still. I haven't been sleeping well. I sleep too lightly, and once I wake up in the middle of the night, I can't get back to sleep because of the dog's constant slorp…slorp…slorp…bitebitebitebitebite…*snarf*…(scratches for five minutes)…slorp…slorp…slorp. ManThing also snores. Sucks to not have the ability to sleep like the dead. I could use that right now.

And, once again, Special Thanks to Blogger, for making it a pain to post, as usual. No, no, that's alright, really. I don't mind wasting more of my time waiting for your page to load, especially after working a 12-hour day. No, it's fiiiiine- reeeeeally.
