…and hello friends!
i hope you’re all having a lovely week. i’m sure several of you are enjoying a day off, in celebration/remembrance of our veterans…
i don’t have much to say today…i’m kinda in la-la land, daydreaming, staring out the window a lot. everything just looks so vibrant and colorful…the trees, the leaves, the blue blue sky. i want to be outside, wrapped in a scarf, cozy in my boots, sipping a steaming cup of chai!
but instead i’m at work. meh.
i snapped these photos yesterday afternoon, as the sun was setting.
how freaking cool do the clouds look?! i didn’t even edit them. that was the exact color of the sky. kinda creepy, eh?
speaking of creepy, i’ve been watching a lot of zombie/end of the world type movies lately (shaun of the dead, the walking dead on a&e, the happening, the crazies, etc)…i’m obsessed. it puts me on the defensive though. i’m always thinking of how i would escape. if i’d be one of the few who’d get away and be able to find the other survivors. know what i mean? i’ve literally looked around my house and contemplated how i’d cover the windows, if we could survive off of bouillon cubes and grape nuts, if i’d be brave enough to smash a zombie in the head with a…i don’t know…i was gonna say pitchfork, but i don’t have one. shit. i’ll have to make a home depot run this weekend. anyway, not to sound so macabre, but i do think about this stuff…it could happen…? diseases that knock out an entire city…aliens that have been watching us for years suddenly drop out of the sky and wipe out the human race…a neighbor who got bit by something on a hike and now he’s a raging lunatic who wants to eat my brains for dinner…i mean, yeah. forget planning for an earthquake or a tornado! zombies and airborne disease is where it’s at.
so for a second last night, when the sky turned red, i looked around, slowly, like a paranoid freak, heard a twig snap behind me, and then i thought to myself…these boots would be great for kicking zombie/alien/crazy neighbor ass.
(turns out the twig snapping was MP.)
ha! maybe i’m the crazy one. i just went from….la la la, the leaves are so pretty, where’s my chai? to…pitchfork buying and flesh eating zombies.
yep, that’s pretty much how my brain works.
and on that note…
enjoy your day. plan an escape route.
