    My pep talk to the garden (small exerpt: Grow dammit, or I will stomp a mudhole in you and walk it dry. I know, I should TOTALLY be a motivational speaker) has apparently worked because on Tuesday? I ate the first radish from the garden. Granted, it was a little bit smaller (still overall good-sized though) and therefore a bit more zesty than I care for, but still, I WAS ABLE TO EAT SOMETHING OUT OF THE GARDEN THAT I GREW WITH MY OWN TWO HANDS. Note to self: Get out of the house more often, STAT.

    I am also working on overcoming my fear of talking myself up to total strangers in the interest of growing my portfolio so I can make my ever closer escape from workplace a reality. Believe it or not, this is actually resulting in a more positive outcome than I would have initially guessed. On a totally unrelated and non-biased tangent, you don’t happen to have a website or blog that you need designed and want to pay someone oodles of paper with dollar signs all over them, do you? Why am I asking? Oh, no reason at all. (www.trenabdesigns.com /shameless self-promotion).

    Thing the third: Who will win Top Chef next week? Who do I want to win. Now that they’ve weeded out all the psychos, it’s kind of hard to pick who is the most lame. Although, I have to say I am so glad that Dale had to pack his knives last week, because he seriously made me have anger issues and I found myself shouting things at the TV against him because he made me so angry for all the other chefs who had to compete against him. Don’t watch Top Chef? Don’t worry, I’m totally not a complete loon–I just feel a mite strongly about my cooking competition shows. Yet one more endearing personality quirk. No, it isn’t a personality ‘flaw’…quirk just sounds so much more…not most likely to go crazy and end up on the news, don’t you think?.

    I think I may be headed for a 12 step program

    If it’s wrong to feel like kissing your modem when your internet connection is gloriously restored after 5 days of being touchy and not connecting for more than 5 consecutive minutes at a go, then I don’t ever want to be right.

    Do you ever get the sneaking suspicion that you must have done something pretty karmically bad at some previous undetermined point in time and now its payback time and that will be payback WITH interest?

    No reason for asking. Did I forget to mention that I’m currently suffering from a massive head cold AGAIN and that for those of you playing the home version of the game, its now past the middle of MAY? I thought it was just bad allergies when all my joints started aching last week after I mowed the lawn (Hello Hayfever!), but when I started running a fever, I knew that I had been infected.

    Also, sidenote: Meth Addicts of the world?

    You suck. The end. Thanks for being so ingenious as to figure out that cold medication would make an excellent ingredient for getting high and resulting in my having to sign over my life at the pharmacy window in order to get any relief and/or have a hope of breathing through my nose in the next week. The whole time I’m (literally) mouthbreathing over what to fill in the form (Uh….name? Let’s see…I knew this at one point in time) because my head feels like it’s filled with cotton which makes it a little harder than usual for the neurons to connect and make the old grey matter click right along in a timely fashion and act like I’m a completely normal person, nope no meth addict here, for the suspicious looking pharmacy tech so that I might be able to complete the transaction so I can actually take the medication and have a hope at being able to feel better/think straight for part of the day.

    Love and excessive snot,

    Trena

    PS: My internet connection has been out since Saturday morning and the earliest that they could send a tech out to fix the problem is Wednesday.

    PPS: Pray that the tech actually shows up tomorrow, otherwise you might be hearing about me on the national news. Especially if I run out of my Cold & Sinus meds.
