Wocka Brain..

I just had to look at a calendar to figure out if today was Monday or Tuesday! I've known today's date all along but suddenly got to fretting, "Did I work yesterday or was yesterday Sunday?" Ever have days like that?

I remember one time (this kind of time warp doesn't happen often -- that's why I remember every incident distinctly!) I tidied up my desk at Warner Bros., said goodnight to my co-workers and headed out to the car. It was a pure mystery to me why there weren't other folks walking out to their cars as well...

I got to the car (up two flights in an elevator) still sorta wondering why no one else was coming out... "Perhaps they're all working late on Y2K (year 2000) issues," I guessed, since I was in the computer department at Warners.

I got into my car and looked at my watch -- and it was 4:10, not 5:10. Blush...

Got back out of the car, walked sheepishly back into the office and said to my co-workers, "It's only 4 o'clock. Why didn't you stop me when I said goodnight and headed out the door? Dont'cha love me anymore?" They laughed and said, "We figured you had a dental appointment or something. You usually know what you're doing..."

Indeed I do. Usually. But not always. It behooves you to treat me like a semi-addlepated friend from time to time. So inquire if I am about to do something that doesn't seem to jive with the proper time, or day, or reality, okay?

If I start to cross the street without looking both ways, grab me!

If I reach out to pet a crocodile, grab me!

If I put my shirt on backwards, tell me.

You know, the obviously dumb stuff -- tell me! I might be otherwise occupied mentally (that's my alibi anyway and I'm sticking with it) and need re-directing!

I would appreciate it!

I've been enjoying Senorita Invierno's blogs... I'd send her some chocolate and a T-shirt, but she thinks they will get lost en route. I'll bet the fact that I mention CHOCOLATE will elicit an address from her, though, and the response, "Keep the t-shirt till I get to Vegas, but send me the chocolate!" Would it melt enroute? Hmmmm.... Maybe M & Ms would make it...

I will noodle this some more.

In the meantime, have a lovely night. I'm stymied -- have nothing else to say tonight...

Damn right!

There goes the bikini diet. (Dry sarcasm. I haven't worn a bikini since I was 4 years old, and that's the way it'll stay!)

Spot on - please keep my t-shirt and look after it until Vegas. I'm having to ship stuff back to the UK because I've accrued a small library and will be way over my luggage allowance and may have to return to England on a camel. If I get a reliable address I'll send you an email.

Oh. I couldn't find my keys this morning. Because I left them in my front door. All night. And I still have no idea what day it is!
