So, How Was Your Day?

My day has been extremely busy, and I’m really tired, but in a very good mood somehow? I think it might be because the sun has shined for TWO WHOLE DAYS. I know! Crazy.

Otherwise, not a lot is going on with me. I need to do more exciting things so my How Was Your Days are better! Or I could just make stuff up, which, I’ll be honest, is far more likely.

    I’m having one of those days where you have to pee like every 30 minutes which isn’t super fun. On the other hand my brother bought me a Zelda calendar so my cubicle is 100% better today than it was yesterday.

    • ! Which month is Wind Waker? Wind Waker always evoked an April feeling in me.

      • catweazle says:

        Unfortunately it only has pictures from Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time 3D and one random one from Phantom Hourglass. I would like a whole Wind Waker calendar, as it is indisputably the best-looking Zelda game (although next month’s picture is of Malon, Talon and Ingo which is random and delightful).

    • I had a cold last week and I had to pee so much more! Do you think it was my body flushing out the cold toxins?

    I just booked a ticket to NYC for vacation!! HOLLA AT ME NYC MONSTAS!

    But I’m also pissed at myself because I’ve been making terrible food choices lately and excusing it by saying to myself, “but you workout every day – it’ll be fine!” And today I did not give myself time to exercise and I will not be able to do so tomorrow either so I am just feeling a confusing mixture of excitement over vacation and disappointment at poor choices. EMOTIONS! THEY ARE CONFUSING AND DUMB.

    • Mintie says:

      I exercise once every two days, and this is sufficient to justify any and all food decisions I make. Also, I am very jealous about your future plans to be in NYC – I keep trying to plan it, but I always lack money and/or time.

  3. Not great…just a couple disappointing things today that all add up to a bummer mood.
    Unrelated to the bummer mood (but not really helping): remember how I was considering that dumb haircut? Well I went and got it and the lady cut about 3 extra inches off and now my hair is SO SHORT and it looks fine and when she did it on friday, it looked great, and I know it’ll grow back so I’m not really mad, but it’s seriously short and not at all what we agreed on (I printed out pictures, we talked about it, then I pointed to where on my chest/shoulders and hair it would be cut to and the lady still cut about 3 inches higher than that!)

    • artdorkgirl says:

      That’s why I drag my feet on getting haircuts. I had one guy that I used to go to that I loved but he moved to Kansas City. Now I’m afraid to go to anyone else. Zack! Come back!!!

    • I had been growing my hair out for a year and got a haircut. She took off so much more than I thought. I usually don’t freak out, because I always have short hair, but I was about to have a panic attack. I’m sure it looks cute! It’s just hard to get used to.

    • My hair is the longest it’s ever been right now and I’m debating whether to chop it or keep it long. It’s a huge pain in the ass to do anything with, but I straightened it today and it made me feel like a mermaid because it goes past my boobs

  4. artdorkgirl says:

    So I just finished teaching and man, do I need to get off this procrastinating kick. I finished the lecture about 45 minutes before class (i.e, I gave up and hurried through the rest of the lecture), but I only let them go 20 minutes early today instead of an hour early so I think things are getting better. Still, I’ll be happy when we’ve finished with the ancient world and move on to the Middle Ages.

    Also, I may still be hung over from Boston Calling this weekend. It’s hard to say.

    • my friend went and said one of the guys from Brand New got crushed under an amp? Any truth to that?

      • artdorkgirl says:

        I did not see that as I was trying to angle for a good space for Modest Mouse who were playing on the opposite stage later that night. I know one of their guitar (I think?) players pretty well destroyed his guitar and jumped into the crowd. They seemed pretty ok by the end of their set…

  5. old man fatima says:

    I want to thank Fanny for giving me my only genuine lol of this terrible day with “I also have a favorite roof style.”

    The famous Catticus Maximus is not long for this world, I’m afraid. I noticed he seemed to be in pain so I made a vet appt for this morning. Just in time, as I woke up to blood and pee all over my bed and the poor little dude coughing up blood clots. He has about 8 different things going on at the same time, including a kidney infection, skin infection, anemia, blocked urethra, he lost 4 of his teeth this week (they’re all cracked and rotten from a life on the street), and his feline leukemia is now active. He also has feline HIV, so he can’t fight any of it off. He’s in surgery now and at the vet’s for the next couple of days. She said that even if they can manage to make his life bearable, which will be very expensive, he has 2-3 months tops. I need to make a decision… I’ve been sitting at my desk weeping all day and doing zero work, and my bosses are nice enough not to mention it. A MILLION FROWNY FACES, YOU GUYS. I’m pretty fucking bummed out.

    • flanny says:

      Oh my god, mega hugs for you and CM!!!

    • artdorkgirl says:

      Oh, OMF, I am so, so sorry. I know it’s so difficult and I’ll be thinking good thoughts for you and CM.

    • summerestherson says:

      OH NOOOOOOO. Poor Catticus! I’m so sorry! What a shitty, shitty situation.

    • msmessica says:

      Oh no, I’m sorry. That sucks.

    • Wallflower says:

      I’m so sorry. Sending love to you and Catticus Maximus.

    • old man fatima says:

      I just got off the phone with the vet, she re-ran his blood work and his leukemia is NOT active after all, which means this is all the result of a pile of different diseases on top of each other which makes it a lot more complicated BUT MEANS THAT IT CAN PROBABLY ALL BE CURED!!!!!!!!! I literally jumped up and down for 5 mins and started to cry again! And he ate some food and took a nap!!! I’m going to visit him now before they close. A MILLION FUCKING SMILEY FACES, YOU GUYS!!!!

  6. FRQ says:

    Not much going on here. Getting a much needed haircut after work, then grabbing sushi on my way home. I also RSVP’d for Sony event in a couple of weeks. Apparently they are live streaming their E3 press conference to select movie theaters. I don’t plan on buying a PS4, but I’m a big dork and will probably go anyway (and possibly write about my experience).

    Side note: I’m surprised none of the 1D Sisters has made a mandatory post on this today.

  7. Casey says:

    I have been on rage-mode because of work stuff for the past 36 hours. You don’t want to hear all the gory details–I know you all know the deal. On the plus side, I am in a heightened sensory state because of sleep deprivation and certain “fight or flight” instincts kicking in, so that has been cool for my creativity (for instance, I doodled this weird nesting-doll-ish owl [] late last night in a stressed moment that somehow totally expressed my manic frame of mind…I’ve never drawn anything like it before, it just happened! I consider it a net gain, almost!)

    On a lighter note, my son’s monarch caterpillar, which he named Sloop, is almost ready to pupate. This is big news around the breakfast table.

  8. flanny says:

    NOT GREAT BOB! (Classic.) Like Truck, I had a number of disappointments today, and also it’s raining. There’s someone I need to call who I’m pretty sure will give me more bad news, and I just don’t think I can handle that so I’ve been putting it off. However, both Fatima and the friend who went with me to the Waterworks Museum gave me compliments on that article, so that helps. Thanks!
    Also! There is a new Scrunchies and Remotes coming, so stop e-mailing and messaging and calling me and knocking on my door and taking me by the shoulders and shaking me while screaming in my face demanding it! I’m going to try to write it tonight! It’s been tough!

  9. Wallflower says:

    I just finished The Book Thief and my face is sloppy.

    • summerestherson says:

      I cried so gross/hard at the end of that book. It was not pretty.

      • Wallflower says:

        Seriously! I had to put it down and just bawl at one point. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to finish it.

  10. msmessica says:

    The taco truck did not show up at it’s proper location today, and that’s all I have to say about my day because after that I gave up on everything.

  11. hotspur says:

    My main assignment today was to finish the unnecessary movie review in time for posting, which I thought I did through behind-the-scenes heroics, but it is not posted, so evidently I did not. Alas! Obviously this is tragic! Apologies, you guys, I know you all woke up wanting it as badly as I did. I guess Friday?

    It is just a weird day. I got back from four days in New Mexico WHICH WAS AWESOME but I am already missing the fun and wonder of exploring a strange Land of Enchantment™ and am not fully in love again with having to do work and laundry and find sandwiches at my own personal expense.

    Although I am eating a decent sandwich at the moment. The corned beef is a little tough! But the flavors are very nice.

    • hotspur says:

      To clarify, lest the above sound like a passive-aggressive attack on the delightful T. Couchman (it just occurred to me that it might well), I am a victim of the West Coast time zone, not of editorial fiendishness. Finishing a post in my AM is actually well into some of you guys’ PM. Stupid round planet. I BLAME THE UNIVERSE.

      • I keep telling everyone this in private, so I might as well say it here–guys, THERE ARE NO DEADLINES. Finish things at your leisure. Please don’t stress about it. I just post things when they come in, and if people tend to post their regular features on the same days of the week, I stick to that just for the sake of consistency–but it literally does not matter at all. (Don’t worry hotspur, I know you weren’t being passive-aggressive and I don’t mean to single you out–but seriously, everyone, stop worrying about this. Also you are all the cutest and I love you.)

        • hotspur says:

          But… but… biweekly Wednesdays & Fridays is my brand! BRANDING IS EVERYTHING! What if Nike just made a batch of sneakers without the Swoosh? What if Kiss made an album without their makeup?? What if America just for one day tried out having a king? It would be ruinous.

          These are perfect analogies btw.

          Sigh. (I’m gonna stick to my days anyway, because I know my awful self well enough to realize that no deadlines = me never doing anything.)

        • I do understand, because I’m the same way about deadlines. Which is probably why I haven’t been able to finish anything since I’ve been out of school (sadly, that’s only a slight exaggeration).

        • Simon Spidermonk says:

          Yeah, and you can’t have Erratic Unpredictability as your brand because that’s already taken. (It’s mine.)

  12. BORING. I have just been sitting around, reading the internet (including the FTC’s report on data brokers, which is terrifying). I donated $75 to the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter so I could get 2 mugs! It looks like that thing will be funded by the morning.

    My office is doing a scotch/whiskey tasting tonight. I was going to bring Weller 12, but apparently its currently hard to come by. I’m currently hoarding the last bottle from the liquor store and bringing 1792 instead. I’m a jerk.

  13. I had a job interview this morning where we bonded over having the same last name but with different spelling. Hopefully that’s enough to get me in, because I for sure am ready to have a new job.

  14. Simon Spidermonk says:

    After a lot of thought, I wrote the first three sentences of a short story today and I’m happy with them. That might not sound like much but if you nail the first three sentences it makes everything that comes after a lot easier, so I’m pretty stoked about that. Stoked… hmm. Should I leave that word in? I’m going to, but just to clarify: I am not, nor have I ever been, a snowboarder.
    Ate too much pizza last night but worked out extra hard today to balance it out. Going to see X-Men tonight. I turn forty in less than a week and I don’t care. Life could be a lot worse.

    • old man fatima says:

      I have a friend who did the landscaping for that movie and she swiped me a philodendron from the Saigon scene and some ivy from the white house lawn (spoiler alert, I guess? There is a white house and they go to nam?), so watch out for those! They’re in my house right now! I can touch the philodendron from where I am currently sitting!

      • Simon Spidermonk says:

        A friend of mine was the stand-in for Patrick Stewart in either the first or second X-Men movie. I think the second one. He had a cute story about meeting Patrick Stewart that I totally forget. Hmm, that’s annoying. Patrick Stewart was as awesome as you’d expect, I remember that much. Let’s say he had a jetpack and a pet monkey named Aloysius. My friend also had a picture of himself in a wheelchair and I think Hugh Jackman’s stand-in in the big Cerebro room, doing the standing in. It was pretty cool.
        Glad to hear Catticus Maximus is maybe okay.

      • Simon Spidermonk says:

        Back from the movie. I remembered to look for your flower during the White House scene (I got it confused with the ivy I guess) but then I remembered that I have no idea what a philodendron looks like. I just looked it up and it’s not even a flower necessarily! The pictures I’m looking at are mostly just green leaves. So the flower I was looking for wasn’t a flower and even if it had been, it was in a different scene. I guess what I’m saying is, thanks for ruining the movie by making me look for nonexistent flowers.

        Just kidding. I didn’t look for it very hard. I enjoyed the movie but it WAS almost ruined by the guy behind me kicking my seat. I considered raising my middle finger against the glow of the screen – which is how I deal with seat-kickers sometimes – but decided that such behaviour was unbecoming for a man of my advanced years. So I fumed in silence instead. Much more mature.

        • old man fatima says:

          Neither are flowers… The ivy is just vines, and philodendrons get these red spikes that turn into red leaves that turn into green leaves. Here is the man of the hour himself, does he look familiar?

        • Simon Spidermonk says:

          More lies and misdirection! THAT IS NOT A MAN!

          He doesn’t look familiar, but I wasn’t paying attention to the plants in Saigon. But that is a really cool looking plant.

    • Erika says:

      Starting a project is always the biggest hurdle for me, especially if it’s writing, so I definitely get what you mean.

  15. nastyemu says:

    Today was a good day. I had a dentist appointment this morning for both a checkup and to get fitted for a night guard (I grind). No cavities and I took the rest of the day off, so I got to hang out in tinychat with Truck and Sat. Yes, that’s still a thing. Don’t be shy.
    I’ve gotten back to my true nerd roots and joined a D&D group my best friend started. It’s my first time playing since before I had a driver’s license, and it’s awesome. We even have two girls in our group, which 12 year old me would be SO EXCITED about.

    • nastyemu says:

      Also, my wife is out of town all week for work, so I’ll be playing video games from 6-midnight all week to cope. If anyone is playing Dark Souls 2 on PS3 let me know.

      • artdorkgirl says:

        No…but if you’ve been playing Hearthstone at all you MAY have encountered Mr. Dork…

        • nastyemu says:

          Sorry I have no idea what that is. I’ve had a PS3 for about 7 years and every game I have is some variant of Rock Band or Demon’s/Dark Souls. It’s been an expensive Netflix player for most of its life.

    • Simon Spidermonk says:

      Man, D&D. It’d be fun to play that again.
