Er...Um...Uh


What was I sayin' ? Furls brow and looks about quizzically.

There's been far too much of that going on lately, far too much. Y'know what that means, it's time for the biannual detox. I gotta tell you, I'm not all that certain that detoxification has ever been proven to increase mental acuity, but I am sharp (and angry) as shit when I'm hungry. The desire for the divinity that is mastication justifies the means. Besides, you can certainly get more done when you free up the beer and cookie hand.

In truth last week was the last straw, not only was I intermittently bed-ridden with the worst-insert "F- Bomb"- headaches ever, but amidst the mental fog I still submitted a research project. It was however, complete with my own special brand of side notes. It went a little something like this:

The Grand Valley Dani of (J-? ^spell) Indonesia maintain cohesiveness through mechanical solidarity; a concept developed by (insert Fr. dude's name, yr)...

It should have read:

The Grand Valley Dani of Irian Jaya, Indonesia maintain cohesiveness through mechanical solidarity; a concept developed by French sociologist, Emile Durkheim in the 1890s.

I proofread it twice and didn't catch it until the following morning! So, here I sit with my cup of lemon cucumber water waiting on word (and the poor grade) from my professor. Sighs. Oy to the vey...so um yeah...you might wanna make an offering up to the Universe in my honor, I have been known to lose my shit when I'm hungry or harshly criticized. Hmmp. What's been going on with you? I've missed you.



Peace and purification

Duuuuude, migraines must've made a deal with the devil because I had the second one I've had in my entire life on Friday night/Saturday all-damn-day, and that pain played nobody's games!! I missed my 5k run with @AskWifey 'nem and everything. #StillSalty

Anyhoo, no shit-losing for you when your paper is returned. Just move on to done di place (Jamaican patois for do the best freakin job, like, ever!) with subsequent papers.

reminds me of some work i turned in in 7th grade when i should have been home on bed rest rather than at school. (mother nature apparently hated me that day.)

i got the work back and was like, "?...who wrote this??" ha!

making that offering for you.

that picture makes ME wanna detox. (something i'm supposed to be doing anyway :-O )

as for me, just been floating along...

Yeah, migraines are totally not my friend. And my pain is mostly on the left side of my head, so you know there isn't much getting done on those days. Hoping that your professor is so taken aback by your report that those minor infractions are not criticized too harshly. Because of, you know, the potential shit-loosing.

i feel like i have fallen into a black hole as well... end of year, my 8th grader has 2 research papers and chose men for whom tomes have been written... winston churchill and galileo... interesting yes, overwhelming? definitely... so i am trying to help him sort through info to get to the kernels... and feeling like i am on information overload myself... (and dying to make a ring that i have the etched disc all ready for!)... be well... fasting is tough...
light & love and requests to the universe on board!

Lemon cucumber water....I've not heard of that one before. I use to use Isagenix. It was a healthy cleanse. Not too bad. My son has done the master cleanse a couple of times....he's not very smart because that is a very unhealthy cleanse.

Hope you feel better and hope the grade is a good one!

Hey. you've been missed too. I hope those hungry days are well and truly over now. :-)

Greetings from London.

OK, I'm reading backwards so I know how the story goes :-) I'm so glad it worked out. I do think that a good detox clears the mind. I swear that when I've been concsious of my food intake and kept it light, I've been a pleasure to be around :-) I even had to quit caffiene because it made me crazy, so I know there's something to this!
