Upswings for Mood Swings

I got mail.

I
love
saying
that.







In this small box were four pieces of deliciousness thanks to my Aunt Peg. Every year she mails out boxes of her delicacy: Blarney Stones.


They even come with St. Patrick's Day napkins! These yummies taste like a Pay Day candy bar- salty peanuts on the outside, sweet frosting and a moist cake. Mmm. Supple and I devoured them. I managed to save one for Mikey. Just barely.





Another highlight of yesterday: I got my hair cut. (see picture) This is a very good thing as I was likely to kill someone due to gray hair frustration.

Ok, my frustration was more deeply rooted (ooh, that is actually a really bad pun). Arriving at work yesterday, I was automatically irritated. This is not a good sign. Especially since a few minutes before I had been at home dancing around to Wham! and singing* at the top of my lungs. Quite a mood shift. I think the piles and piles of files littering my cubicle floor isn't helping my sanity. I am trying to organize my them but I keep getting interrupted or distracted. And honestly, I really loathe filing. I used to have a job as an Administrative Coordinator (glorified secretary) and filing was my responsibility. I think in the year I was there, I maybe filed once. My boss would ask me for a grant file and I would dig through the piles on top of the file cabinet. It's a wonder I wasn't written up for that.

Is it the weekend yet?

*I am now convinced that Wham!'s song Edge of Heaven is about S & M. Is it just me or is that what they are talking about?

"Edge of Heaven," eh? Not familiar with that one. Will have to find it and get back to you.

Doesn't Aunt Peg want to send a sweet pregnant Irish lass some of those yummy treats?

Oh damn, I guess she already sent some to your sister...

How about the recipe? ;)

Blarney stones sound faaaabulous :)

Sizzle said...

Jenny said...

I'm diggin' the haircut! As for the song, George Michael would NEVER sing about something sexual...

jeopardygirl said...

Love the hair, want a Blarney Stone. Jealous. (just kidding, you deserve both) :)

Bob Merrick said...

oh NO.

If you got yours already, what if that means Peggy doesn't have my current home address?????

Calling immediately. I have had them delievered to me every St. Patrick's day for the last ten years- even when I was shooting on location in Vancouver!

Suddenly dreading a blarney o'a panic attack.

Bob Merrick said...

She has my address...

Mrs. Ca said...

Three things:
1. The haircut looks awesome. Love it!
2. It's almost the weekend. Almost
3. Do you have the recipe for said Blarney Stones? If yes, would you like to share it? Because it sounds like perfect PMS food, which is what I need right now.

Nihilistic said...

I have the best image in my head of you dancing around with your new do and singing Wham songs as you get ready for work...Its like a Drew Barrymore movie opening (And I LOVE Drew!!!!!)

Claire said...

Yea for mail, and I dig the 'do. Looks great.

As for filing, you sound like my old boss. Her inbox was always about a foot and half tall. Her 'system' was archaeological: new stuff on top getting progressively older towards the bottom.

Mr_Rodacre said...

You know... I think you're right on about the Wham! song (remember when they were "Wham!U.K."?)

And yes, I agree, you're hair is totally cute... =)

Jenster said...

The hair looks totally cute. Very sexy!

I absolutely thing that "Edge of Heaven" is about S&M. I've been convinced of that for some time now. :) And I do actually remember when they were Wham!UK. Geez, I'm old. :)

Getting mail rocks!

Kerry said...

*singing and dancing with wild 80's step feet* Wake me up, before you go go....

I like the hair cut. ;)

Aimee said...

Keee-yute 'do, Sizzle! And we're twins today -- I have my purple cardigan on too!

Gary said...

Love the new hair.

jenny said...

You'd better change your name to Ms. Sassy with that hair! Looks great on you!

Anonymous said...

Dave2 said...

I dunno... the new hair IS sweet on you, but I'd have to say it's your winning smile that melts men's hearts.

:-)

Krisco said...

Super cute hair cut.

And, um...maybe I missed it but...how do you know the words to that song??! Goodness. What are talking, '85? Yikes.

(and, just...site unseen...probably!)

Bill said...

Nice hair! But it reminds me that I desperately need a hairccut and I've been too busy, lazy etc. to do it. Must get haircut! Must get haircut!

(It's the length that is the problem; not the gray. When it gets this long I start playing with it.)

Melissa said...

You are just SOOO kitten with a whip in that do!!! I had to do a little catching up with the posts (my bad) and omg you're as adorable as ever.
