Friday Song

This morning I woke up with a giddy "hangover" from a beautiful Blazer victory last night (which concluded far too late in the CST time zone for a work night). As I rolled out of bed, I was inspired to create a little Friday jingle.

From what I can remember, it went something like this...I believe to the tune of the song from Elf ("I'm siiiiinging. I'm in a mall, and I'm siiiinging!"):

Today is Friiiiiiday!
And it's Earth Daaaaay
So I can get free coffee at Staaaarbucks
And I think I'll get a mufffffin
Because today is Friiiiday
And after work I'm getting a faaaacial!

Happy Friday!

Ode to Crisco

Oh, Crisco.

How I normally despise thee.

Greasy, fatty, flavorless.

One can't seem to scoop you out of a can without getting an oil-based hand treatment.

Yet so crucial to tender cut-out cookies (Butter just doesn't cut it. I tried).

Which leads me to a greater invention than sliced bread (like it was any competition. How can the "chore" of slicing a loaf of bread even compare to the mess of Crisco in the tub?!)

Thank you for bringing such a joy and simplicity to my life.

All hail the lard!

For many, many years, my life has been divided into segments... (relatively) short periods of time that simply felt like segues to the next stage of my life. My junior year of high school, on my way to finally being a senior. My senior year of high school, biding my time until I could start college. First years of college, prerequisites (literally) to start the OT program. The OT program, the next step in finally pursuing my career. Fieldwork, more preparation before starting my career. My boards, another hoop (more like ring of fire) to jump through. Granted, I did my best to make the most of these experiences so this makes it sound worse than it actually was, but still. My life was full of transitions. For the first time in a long time, I feel like my life is fluid, not segmental. I have no end date in mind, no next stage I'm preparing for, no transition I'm anticipating. I just am. One day at a time. Content where I am.

Might I just say it feels amazing!

The Blog, Revisited

With only moderate resolve, I've decided to dust off the old blog. If nothing else I had to update my profile in the blogging community, less someone stumble upon my page and think I was still a student (shudder!) and living in Duluth (brr!).
