Brain fog and other maladies

I will be doing a post about my weekend later, as there was much excitement and adventure, but I’ve got to download the photos to properly tell the story and I was too tired/lazy/wrapped up in the god-awful-Emmys last night to take care of that.

Today, however, is a full-fledged Monday, complete with computer problems, emergencies, irritation…and more! It doesn’t help that my brain is foggy, my back is killing me, and I think my arthritis is acting up. To those who say 29 isn’t old, today I say…

Get off my lawn sonny!

Anyway, since my brain is all foggy, and the rest of me is in pain, it’s bullet-point post time! Yay for you!

  • I’m loving that color is a part of fall fashion trends. I look great in color, and it tends to make me feel better about myself, but it’s been a struggle for a few years to find vibrant colors in fashion, rather than muted washed out shades. Not that I have much money for clothes shopping, but at least I know that I’ve got some options for those few pieces I will be buying.
  • How awful were the Emmys last night? Not so much in who won/lost (though I think it’s criminal that Hugh Laurie hasn’t won an Emmy yet for his portrayal of House), but the actual production. The hosts were horrible, the bits weren’t funny…bleh. I don’t know why I couldn’t stop watching…
  • They opened new “commuter” lanes on the freeway today, and guess what? Traffic was WORSE than usual. I’m pretty sure that counts as irony.
  • One of my least favorite things about my job (or any job), is the death of good design ideas by committee. Being married to an artist makes it worse, but it just KILLS me when a designer comes up with a great look, and the committee picks it apart to leave only the rotted carcass of horrible design. The worst part is that I can’t say  “you people have no taste, no vision, and no idea what constitutes good design. Step away from the layout and no one gets hurt.” To any designer who has to work with me, I’m sorry, it’s not me, it’s them.
  • I think it’s time for some itunes to perk me up. Or a Vicodin. One of the two.

Tonight I’ll write all about the bloodweiser, the bruins and the black eye. For now, I’m going to go be surly to my coworkers

Last night’s Emmy’s were painful and painfully long. Ugh, Howie and Seacreast, kill me. I am also loving the berry hues for fall. I have my eye on a purple shirt I must have.
