And there are forces of conflict
Taking portions of my mind
In whose realm laced with trickery
The fragments I must find
And I can almost out run you
And those stalking memories
Did I somehow become you
Without realizing
Found a little patch of heaven now
So then I'm gonna turn oysters in the sand
'Cause I'm working my way back
I'm working my way back to me again
Not every girl is a pearl
With these ruby slippers
With these ruby slippers
So then I'm gonna turn oysters in the sand
Turn
Turn
Not every girl is popular
Popular
Popular
Not every girl is a pearl
With these ruby slippers
With these ruby slippers
So then I 'm gonna turn oysters in the sand
In the sand
In the sand
Turn
Turn
Turn
So I just printed out superhero templates because this morning Coco decided he did not want a Planes birthday cake after all and requested a "Flash and Superman" cake. I told him I had already bought Planes decorations to put on the cake, but the first thing I did when I arrived at work was figure out how I could make the double superhero cake happen. That's motherhood for you.

Suite à l'épisode ci-dessous -

Quartz : Ya rien de plus bizarre qui peut m'arriver de la journée.
Raiontzukai : C'est risqué comme déclaration.
I'm wearing a tan sweater today, and I was just told I look like a caramel M&M.
I took Coco to the optometrist this morning. I was a bit nervous and pretty certain he would need glasses. I mean, both Raiontzukai and I have strong prescriptions and I got my glasses at age 5 while Raiontzukai got his at age 7.

Well what do you know, Coco can see just fine. I am flab.ber.gas.ted. I had even prepped him by telling him there was a possibility the optometrist would tell him he'd need glasses.

If you need me, I'll be out buying a lottery ticket.

Dit par une collègue qui revient de vacances ce matin à moi et le collègue qui a le bureau en face du mien :

On est une équipe trop facile à gérer. On devrait se chicaner. Vous devriez avoir une aventure.

C'est la collègue qui, il y a six mois de ça, me disait qu'elle ferait preuve de compréhension à mon égard si je me prenais un amant. Manifestement, elle n'est pas satisfaite de mes choix relationnels.

Some people can't help but be ignorant. Some people choose to be ignorant by refusing to so much as consider other people's opinions or experiences - or simply raise their noses up from their belly buttons.

That's you.

I just agreed to be on call on my birthday this weekend because frankly, I welcome any distraction at all.
Also, because I was curious as to the results, I started wearing Paula 2 overnight to get sleep quality analysis.

Turns out, when you haven't slept very well, it's not comforting to have a freaking watch tell you so.

In case you were wondering, yes, I did cave and bought myself a new sportswatch so I could give Paula to Mom as a replacement for her now obsolete and unsupported Nike. (Now you're wondering what this new watch is going to be called, and I am wondering too as it is a Polar M430, and "Paula" would fit it equally well... maybe Paula 2.)

I tried to be reasonable, I really did. I looked and looked for another cheap GPS watch for Mom. But the most suitable option clearly was Paula. Plus I got Paula 2 really cheap. And it really is an improvement on Paula. So. I'm happy.

If you're going to apologize for startling me everytime you barge into my office, tell me, why wouldn't you freaking knock?
Conversation du jour, parce que 11 ans amènent le réalisme :

Raiontzukai : J'imagine que notre relation ne fonctionnerait pas si je n'étais pas cheap.
Quartz : Clairement pas.
