Haven’t written much lately because things have been kind of depressing and unexciting and who wants to read that except a blog stalker who’ll greedily gobble up whatever mundane information I provide?
I feel like I’ve hardly been in my office at all the past couple weeks, between the various holidays, snowstorms, and regularly scheduled work-from-home days. Today will make almost three full days I’ve been in the office this week, which is a new high.
I say “almost three full days” because I was sick at work on Monday and left a couple hours early (then went home and called into my conference call). That was no fun. I was feeling sick all morning and finally threw up in the bathroom, and then I was feeling better so I figured that was it. Nope, I threw up again a couple hours later, so I figured I’d better head out. Then I ate almost nothing until Tuesday night. But hey, I lost a couple pounds!
Then yesterday morning I got up and went into the bathroom, and we had no running water! I called the water company and they said there was a water main break in our town, they were aware of it but didn’t know where it was yet, so couldn’t say when the water would be back on. By the time I left for work (by the way, my morning routine goes much more quickly when I can’t shower, don’t have to do my hair, and can’t wash my face) we had some low-pressure brown water, and by the time I got home last night things seemed fine. But even this morning you could tell there was some air in the pipes. Seems like there’s been a lot of water mains breaking recently! I wonder if it has to do with the cold weather, ice expanding and all that?
And finally, to cheer things up, here is a picture I drew for a coworker – we were joking about tattoos (and bacon?) and he said he’d like a tattoo of a muscular piece of bacon beating up broccoli, so I was inspired to draw this little scene:
