Another Motley List…

I got my first invitation for a Workweek Hustle Challenge on Fitbit for this week. Should I be worried? These were the stats as of 3p.m., after I went running. ๐Ÿ™‚

.

I’ve seen 6 different birds in the last 10 minutes. 7 if you count the one Steve floated at me as I went by. His didn’t have feathers though.

.

.

I wonder how suspicious I looked early this morning, walking down Appleby. Holding multiple colorful and overstuffed bags, multiple strings of colorful balloons, a fuchsia painted skillet, and a laptop. Surely this is something everyone sees at 3:00 a.m.?

Y’all should congratulate me. I got chosen to spearhead the new conflict resolution program at work. After careful consideration, what I came up with and made is going to save the company a lot of money..

What a gorgeous morning it has been. It feels like March. I stood out on the landing with my dumbbells, trying to corral Gรผino, who was losing his mind at the sight and sound of birds and squirrels running amok. Even though I was standing right next to him while he sat on the bench next to the kitchen window, he jumped and FLEW halfway down the landing to peer into the window with lovely cats and bird feeders. You can hear me walking in my ugly flip-flops to retrieve him. He spoke to me when I picked him and cradled him. I’m pretty sure he was cursing in cat. I lovingly whispered curses at him in human. He didn’t care. He had his run and adventure.
I’m also doing laundry while I exercise. I’m trying to decide what prank picture to put up in the laundry/dungeon room this week. The other fun thing is this week is sock week. As you might remember, I replace all my socks simultaneously, instead of mixing old and new like a savage. As I wear socks, I throw them out when I’m about to switch to new ones. I have one more pair before hitting the exciting milestone of opening the four dozen pairs I bought last week. Hey, you have to find the good moments in everything. It amuses me that I have to buy different socks since losing weight. I also lost an entire shoe size. I guess I had fat feet, too.
A quote to close: “If you want really practical advice, you ask the black sheep of the family. With wisdom, you learn to ask them only by text.”

Is the following comforting or anxiety-inducing?”Nearly every object in your house can be used to kill you.”I’ll bet if you’re a married man, you’ll be more likely to sleep with one eye open. ๐Ÿ™‚.

If you eat a dust bunny, does it count as protein? Asking for a friend.

Well, since I’m burning 3500-4000 calories a day 5 days a week, I might have to have pizza and a banana for breakfast, ice cream and salad for lunch, and pie and broccoli for supper. I haven’t decided what to eat for second breakfast, brunch, or second supper. ๐Ÿ™‚ The fascinating thing is that I FEEL like my energy level is beyond human at times. P.S. No, I’m not pregnant.

Evidently, I got tickets to the circus. I’m basing that solely on events already this morning. I’m definitely not the ringleader, but I suspect I might be the monkey. Happy Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Stolen & Adapted Memes #25

After sending my rรฉsumรฉ to Stafford Engineering, I was excited and astonished when they called to say, “We have the perfect spot for you, X! You know the word ‘foolproof’? That’s what we’re hiring you for.”

11:30 p.m. musings: Guino must think it’s Xmas.

I asked the universe for a sign. I think it said, “Don’t stand in the middle of an empty intersection at 3 a.m.”

Quote from Reddit. I made the picture.

I propose that we put ridiculously uncomfortable speed bumps at every stop sign. Then allow anyone who wants to try to speed through to give it a shot. #letswatch.

Quick question… I made a brooch out of a small Bic lighter…
.
Which explanation is more humorous?
.
If someone asks me how I’m feeling, should I reply and say, “I’m feeling a little lighter!”
.
OR
“I’m wearing this in case I need to light a fire under someone’s butt?”

Nutrition Update: I ate all but one slice of an entire large pizza, followed by a lava cake. Admission: I could have easily consumed the last piece and the box it arrived in, too. 150 or bust! And I just might after all that…Update to the update: I ate two lava cakes and ALL the pizza.

It’s a slow process, gaining muscle. Meanwhile though, I’m going to enjoy this large box of peanut M&Ms. If you would have told me 13 months & 21 days ago that I would be struggling to gain weight to hit 150, I would have laughed for a minute. And then maybe perhaps have nodded. I can still hear the bell as it gonged in my head. For anyone worried about me being too thin, I’m not losing weight. I’m doing what’s very difficult to do at 54. And that’s to change my body mass. Unless my body throws me another surprise, I’m going to do just that.
