Crazy, Parts 1-4
I have to say, I’m pretty glad that darn heatwave is finally over. I was starting to go a little cuckoo for cocoa puffs in the cabeza (translation to normal English: lose my mind).
Where to begin. Well, Kman was off on another bro-tastic camping excursion this weekend, so I got some quality me time! Since I’m an only child, I am 10000% perfectly content with hanging out solo, not having to speak a word to another human being for a whole day. In fact, I totally dig it! I scooted my butt down to the pool at 10AM sharp on Saturday and posted up to weather the 104 degree monstrosity of a day.
Headphones, Kindle (I’m 94% finished with Game of Thrones—SO GOOD!), popchips, TimeOut New York, and some sunscreen and I was good to go! Of course, I had to take about a million dips in the pool so I wouldn’t shrivel up into a prune. But here’s where crazy part 1 kicks in.
Since it was so hot, I left the air conditioning on for our kitten, Penny. Yep, I said screw my carbon footprint, I don’t want to come home to a roasty toasty cat. In addition to the air conditioning…I set up what can only be called a kitty hydration station.
Go right ahead and judge. I judged myself a bit. Yes, that’s a cold washcloth draped over her butt. Not pictured? A bowl of ice in the front of her tunnel with a fan blowing over it. A DIY CAT-MISTER!? Really? Ugh what is wrong with me.
Crazy part 2: I decided it was too hot for an actual dinner on Saturday night. I had a fully stocked kitchen and a plethora of yummy delivery options, but nothing sounded appetizing. I guess a day of sun can do that. Maybe it was the chicken salad sandwich I ate at the pool, who knows. Sidenote: you should probably steer clear of anything containing mayo when the temperature passes 100. Live and learn, I suppose.
So I figured that 3 mochi ice cream balls would be nutritious (?) and delicious (!) for dinner. Then I passed out in bed watching Real Housewives of New York on my computer.
Crazy part 3: I woke up bright and early Sunday morning, ready and rarin’ to hit the flea market. In the past, I’ve had GREAT success at Brooklyn flea (see here and here !). For some reason, I was really off my game yesterday.
Sure I made a couple good snags…
A cool…thing. Too small for a rug, too big for a placemat. So I dub thee, a table blanket!
A hysterical, super old mirrored sign that’s going to hang in the kitchen.
And…enter crazy part 3. A large pair of earrings that I bought because I love aqua and they were really unusual. The woman at the stand even looked shocked that I was buying them. They feel awkwardly big to be studs, but I guess they’ll work out OK.
And usually I’m pretty good with pictures at the flea market, too, but all I walked away with yesterday was a picture of ceramic cats, because they looked really funny.
Oh and crazy part 4. I realized at 5:00 today that I completely forgot to put deodorant on this morning. Ewwww! I can’t believe it didn’t occur to me all day long. Good thing I work at a video game company and I could pass any potential stank off on one of the guys there.
Is there a full moon or something I don’t know about? I feel totally off my rocker lately!
