Which Leads Us to Say

It’s a typical day.

Spotted on the national news: it seems that lawmakers want Tide to change the color of their laundry detergent pods. Supposedly, the bright green, blue, white, orange, or purple looks like candy, which tempts children to bite into them. A couple of things: the “kids” who are taking part in the Tide Pod challenge? They are teens and old enough to read. They can understand the danger. The toddlers who shove those Pods in their mouths? They’d try to gum them no matter what color they see. That’s what small children do. Constantly. Just a thought.

We’re getting more snow today. Prime and I walked out to flurries this morning. We didn’t get this much snow in December or January. It’s like winter is trying to play catch up or something. I don’t know if I like that.

Since Saturday’s snowstorm, it has gotten cold. And it doesn’t seem to be warming up anytime soon. So I have no idea when the snow might melt and when I can get back to walking to work. It probably won’t be until late March at the earliest, which is one hell of a wait. The next few weeks are going to be long indeed.

I just started The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World. I’m already on chapter five and I am loving it. This book is just plain fun to read. It seems that there’s also a sequel out there; I am so going to have to pick it up. Once I’m done with that, I plan to pick up Raptor Red. I won’t be bored, I can say that much.

I spotted my pain in the ass co-worker this morning. Thankfully, she didn’t bother me, as I was too busy with my Tamagotchi. It’s been two weeks, apparently. It technically died in its sleep shortly before 10am. I’ve already started a new one.

I swear, I think that the podcasts I listen to are just about the only things that keep me sane. It’s not simply the human voices, either. Listening to a review of a terrible kid’s movie had me laughing like you wouldn’t believe. I needed that, as Ratchet would say.

Just discovered that my tablet can create word documents. This might change a few things. I’ll let you know how that goes.

As for work, it was quiet. Wiesia left me alone, which is fine. No one said much of anything to me, so there’s that.

I think I’ll be okay. As long as I have the tablet, I’ll be okay.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
