Friday Five

1. As I was walking toward my building on my way to work this morning, a friendly woman crossed my path and we chit-chatted for a while. I had never met her before, and enjoyed the happy-see-strangers-arent-bad-we-can-beat-the-suburbs-isolation moment. We both said goodbye in happy, sing-song voices.

2. As I walked to the doors of my building and caught my reflection in the glass I saw that I still had a roller in my bangs.

3. I am having some serious issue with The Thesis and whether or not it is worth my time (and my life!) to finish. More on that later, possible over at Fledgling.

4. I get to see my three nephews on my side of the family this weekend. I cannot wait. I CANNOT WAIT. I walked by a display of cotton candy and had to get some "for the boys." I damn near plopped down $35 on three teeny Wyoming Cowboy baseball hats for them.

You can bet that I will, indeed, be pinching their cheeks tomorrow.

I need to be stopped.

5. Otters. They are quite possibly the most awesome animal on Planet Earth.


Happy Friday to you!


  1. Oh, otters! I think I need a framed picture of otters for my office area, because a mere GLIMPSE of otters improves my mood. Although I'm not sure a still photo would work, since so much of their charm is in the way they move.

    Hair curler, heh heh.

  2. Ahhhhhh so cute! I love how the other one pops its head up for a bit like "Huh, wonder what's going on. Nope, not interested." Adorable!

    Have fun with your nephews!!! I only get to see my niece and nephew about twice a year and I miss them so much.

  3. Yay nephews! Have fun and I hope their pinchable cheeks help you clear your head, Thesis-wise.

  4. I wonder why the Friendly Woman didn't tell you about the roller? Perhaps she thought you meant to sport that look in public....

    And yes. Yeah for otters!

  5. Oh, I love the roller story. That's fantastic.
    Otters are about my favorite thing at the zoo. Plus they, at least, usually have enough room to play that they dont seem miserable, unlike some other zoo animals... Sigh.
