The vacuum broke.

There's a 12 in. crack in my windshield.

Someone's photo order was royally messed up/slowed down.

I need a Nikon flash before Sunday.

I have a busy day hangover.

Broke a glass.

Got a cold sore.

Got some overdue bills.

....On a good note...I found my missing box of 250 business cards. Didn't want to lose those lovely, letter-pressed little works of art. But then again...on a bad note...I was thinkin' about cancelling the land-line and just using the cell (that's one of the said overdue bills), but I realized the land-line is printed on the 250 lovely, letter-pressed little works of art. What's a gal to do?

More Lame Moms

Yesterday we went swimming at our little clubhouse pool. There was a grandpa there that lives in our gate, with his 8 grand kids. Sometimes, all these grand kids can get really last night when I saw a 9 yr. oldish girl TOTALLY blow her nose into the pool....but that's not what I'm writing about today.

One of the grand kids at the pool was a little fairy princess aged girl. I'd say she was about 3. Probably a year or so younger than Katie. She had on a too-big swim suit which showed tons of her skin and I could see her MASSIVE racer-back swimsuit shaped SUNBURN. From her shoulders to her neck, I could see grey & brown peeling skin exposing that bright red tender flesh underneath. The peeling areas were DEEP and her skin was still bright red along her arms and legs. All I want to know was, HOW DID HER MOTHER LET THAT HAPPEN? When she got burned, she was clearly in a swimsuit which means she was in a swimming situation. Where was the sunscreen? This little girl was fair with white-blond hair. I seriously felt a wave of nausea come over me when I saw her burns close-up. Could that be considered abuse/neglect? Maybe the dad was in charge when that happened.

"No phone, no phone. I just want to be alone today. No phone, no phone."

Here is something that really bothers me: awkward phone conversations. I've found that there are usually two reasons I think a phone conversation is awkward.

1) People call me all the time and unsuccessfully try to shoot the breeze with me when really they're calling for a specific reason. Usually a favor, and that's fine. I have no issues with a call starting with "Hey,'s it going? So, I totally need a favor." For those of you who do that, I applaud you.

2) Some people are just awkward on the phone, thus, an awkward phone conversation ensues. I recently talked in length about this very phenomenon with JUSTIN. We talked about this for a very long time and I was pleased with how long the conversation flowed and how it remained interesting. This was a good example of a non-awkward phone conversation. I love chit-chatting on the phone when time allows, and not all phone calls need a reason, but sometimes people are just bad at the chit-chat and should simply take care of business.

K. Talk to you later. Bye.

Rad Email

Though this is a totally awesome email, I'm putting it on "The UnCool" since the subject line said "What's not cool". It's from the lovely Alycia P.

"Woman,What is not cool is the fact that it is the 10th and you have not blogged since the 4th- get the lead out- I need a laugh!"

I love it.
