This is How Busy I Am...

I am so busy that my Diet Coke went flat before I could drink it all.

I am so busy that I started to put my hair in a pony tail and forgot to finish.

I am so busy that I ate my lunch standing up at the mini-kitchenette today, scarfing chili's tortilla chips and salsa while I waited for my lean-cuisine to finish "baking".

I am so busy that I don't even have time to internet date.

I am so busy that I have to balance my checkbook in my head (which reeks havoc with my ability to purchase cafe rio salads on the fly).

I am so busy that my best friend had to IM me to tell me that she is "SICK of me not returning her calls" (quote used by permission...copyright 2006, nipta thompson).

I am so busy that I can't really write in my blog...although I suppose I appear to be writing right now, but don't worry it's actually just a figment of your imagination.

I am so busy that even my attempts to play mind tricks on you are half-assed and pathetic at best.

I am so busy that I can only sing harmony to 1/2 of a Ryan Adams song while driving in my car before I start feeling guilty that I'm not multitasking and putting myself and others at risk by returning my best friends' phone calls while shifting gears.

Did I mention the part about my diet coke going flat before I could drink the whole thing???? That really made me mad.

I am so busy that I don't even have time to fill out that VERY WONDERFUL "getting to know you" email that has become part of the fabric of my life.

I am so busy that I can only do 1/2 hour on the stationary bike at the gym, which oddly enough is still plenty of time to acquire HUGE wet butt marks of sweat which highlight my best features. Go figure.

I want a picture of the 1/2 pony-tail'd NB!

I have for some duration considered the possibility that blogging was in fact specifically designed for you. I cannot claim to be an avid reader of blogs, and this is my first time reading yours, but after this short trip to the land of Ninny Beth's bloggery, I am quite convinced, my theory stands confirmed. Well done, my lady, well done. "Wet butt marks" is shear blogging genius.

You always provide a moment of shear bliss during my own busy day. Your storytelling is great. I nearly gasped when I read your DC went flat! Maybe you should get one of those hats that holds the can and has a straw.

Yesterday...I scrolled through my emails...and found SIX that fit in the file in my brain that I've entitled "respond to when I have a minute." Only a reflection of many unfinished "to do's" How do I let myself become so disorganized, and scattered?

I feel busy all the time...but lately I feel like a peice of me is laying somewhere in every place I've been to for the last couple of weeks...excuse me I need to retrace my tracks and find myself.

MCOLLIE!!!! I WANT ONE OF THOSE HATS> PERFECT...bcv diet coke on one side, lime on the other...a taste treat sensation. my only sadness is that they don't make intravenious chocolate. NOW that would be cool.

I am so busy that I only have time to read your blog and not post my own. I am so busy that I am supposed to be whizzing home on I-15 right now but instead find myself posting on blogs for a good hour because I miss it so much. Clayton is gonna be ticked. Ever find a half empty DC can from the day before and wonder "How on earth did I not finish that?! What was so important that I left it alone and afraid on my bookshelf and forgot all about it?" Poor little cans of happiness. I don't deserve them.
