What is a penguin doing on my lawn?

I just posted, but it was too melancholy and I had to take it down. I'm not a blogger in order to burden you with my woes, I'm a blogger in order to burden you with mindless ramblings and the occasional barrage of photos.

Interesting. That is pretty much my blog in a nutshell. I had no idea.

I'm just wrapping up my sixth cup of coffee (don't worry, I switch to decaf when I start twitching, which was about three mugs ago), and now I'm thinking I should switch to something slightly healthier, like Diet Coke. Which I actually HAVE, randomly enough, because I had a migraine on Sunday and thought it would help. Then I never actually opened it. So now it's sitting there in the fridge mocking me, saying, 'You know you dislike waste even more than you dislike pop, so you may as well just open me up and DO IT. DO IT DO IT! DRINK ME! IT'S DRIVING YOU CRAZY THAT I'M TAKING UP PRECIOUS TINY ENGLISH FRIDGE SPACE AND YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T THROW ME AWAY!' The cacophony this coke makes every time I open the refrigerator door is deafening. I'm thisclose to buckling and downing it all in one burning, fizzy go, before retiring to a dark space to drown in bloated self-loathing. 'Waste not want not' is such a satisfying motto to live by.

But before I go rip open that door to confront this carbonated enemy, let me leave you with this: my new favorite website, where they use poorly chosen real estate photos to make great fun. It's un-buh-LEEVABLE. Please go there. Please. Just for ONE SECOND. You will seriously LOVE it.

Oh, I do! I love it! Are these people serious? Can we say "demolition?"

Well, even though you took it down, since you're in my google reader I actually got to read the rejected post. And I have to say...I liked it! Not because it expressed your worries, but because it's nice to relate to others. We all have those stressful moments when we're worried things aren't going to work out or we don't know what the next step is going to be. But those moments when we can read something and feel like "Hey! I'm not the only one"...that can be just as great as any hilarious mind rambling or breath taking photo;)

oops...and I'm pretty sure "breathtaking" is one word. *doh* :)

I'm in your google reader?! That makes me disturbingly happy. (I took more than that from your comment, I swear.) Thank you for the encouragement...next time I'll leave it up. :)
