Random Tuesday Thoughts: Zombies and Other Anxieties
*Since I've already gone and give RTT host Keely nightmares, I figure it's only fair for me to share this site with the rest of you. It's a blog where people share their own stories of the Zombie Wars, a spin off from Max Brooks' book Word War Z. Have you read World War Z yet? You should. It's cool from a sci-fi perspective and interesting from a sociopolitical perspective. Try it. You'll like it!
*Now I have that stupid Yo Gabba Gabba! song in my head, "Try it. You'll like it!" stuck in my head. Oscar's only watched that show like four times and I think this is the only episode he's seen. Oh, and the one where they sing, "Snacky-snack, snack, snack snack! Snacky-snack, snack, SNACK! SNACK! SNACK!" This is going to be a long day.
*I've now typed the word "snack" so many times it has lost all meaning to me. I'm no longer even sure that it's a word.
*The seven-year-old girl I babysit for totally hearts the Jonas Brothers. She thinks they are dreamy. Which got me thinking, Who did I think was dreamy when I was seven? Ready for this? I'm about to totally date myself here, but I LOVED Johnny Depp (it was 21 Jump Street) and River Phoenix (Stand By Me.) Loved. And do you know what? Still do.
*I hate it when Nelson does laundry. I know, you think I'm crazy right? But, when he does it, he only ever does like half of it and then he leave the rest in the basement and doesn't tell me it's down there and needs to be washed. And it's always like all of my jeans and underwear that get left out of the washing and I have to scramble to get it done so I can, you know, not be naked. I do recognize he's trying to be helpful, but it kind of ends up creating more work for me in the long run.
*I find folding laundry cathartic.
*I find putting laundry away mind-numbingly boring.
*Miles is really starting to notice Oscar, and it is super cute. The are "talking" to each other right now and I love it.
*Oscar's lips were blue this morning so I convinced myself HE WAS DYING. Then I put a sweater on him and gave him some hot coco and his lips are back to normal. Because it was 30 degrees outside and he was just cold, NOT dying.
*Yesterday I spent all morning convincing myself that my thrush was actually some kind of cancer because while I am feeling a bit better, I'm not feeling entirely better. Still itching, burning, shooting pains, etc. but to a lesser degree. Then I realized that this is ridiculous because when you hear hoof beats it's usu sally horses, not zebras. F-ing Dr. Google.
*After a week and a half of sleeping 10-12 hours in row, Miles woke at 2am last night. I almost didn't know what to do. And he nursed his face off for like an hour. Pray god it was just a fluke.
*I've been having some anxiety issues lately. See items above re: dying toddler and cancer.
