I was trying to think about what to write and nothing stood out as particularly post worthy. I figured maybe if I put them together then the parts would equal a whole.
I’m a slacker in some ways. I hate making up my bed so I rarely do it. I’m ok if someone else makes my bed for me, but I will gladly get into a disheveled bed (my own, not sure about someone else’s mess). This aversion to making my bed may have to do with my childhood. My mom was fanatic about bed making–flipping and rotating mattresses every week to preserve firmness, insisting on perfectly even ends and tucking them into “hospital corners.” WTF.
I need a personal assistant. I can think of a ton of things I need help with. But for starters,my assistant could help me pick out what clothes to wear to work and iron them if necessary, make my bag lunch for me, and make sure I have an adequate supply of Extra gum (any of the fruit flavors except watermelon, never the bubblegum flavor, and any of the “dessert” flavors but preferably key lime pie). Also, make sure I always have change or singles for the vending machine.
I need balance in my life. It bothers me when someone says one thing and does another, so I try not to be that type or person. By the same token, I don’t think I should ask someone to do something that I myself am not willing to do. Not every action should be performed with the idea that I will get something in return, but if I feel I am putting out a lot of energy and not getting much back, then maybe I need to rethink my involvement.
I heart J Lo. I really like the revamped panel of judges on American Idol. I like the comaraderie and the lack of competition among them. Steven Tyler is so comfortable being himself, I love it. I think Randy is starting to shine as a leader now that Simon Cowell is gone. I used to love Paula Abdul on this show, but Jennifer Lopez is a worthy replacement although she’s not as loopy (I liked the loopiness). But she brings the warmth and compassion.
