Maybe "kelp pills" will replace "pinecone extract" in my google searches, because I still don't know what pinecone extract is: Random Tuesday Thoughts


Whee! Here I am. It's Tuesday!

And, I'm sorry to be a lame-o* but I've never felt less like writing a Random Tuesday post. I woke up with kind of a sore throat, and it just went downhill from there. My usual strategy of attacking the illness with naps did nothing. Nothing, I tell you!

*I know, who says that anymore? Clearly I'm not in my right mind.

My boss, who bitches constantly that I don't work Mondays, just sent me an email bitching at me to stop answering email on my "day off". Oh, so THAT'S what a Catch-22 looks like.

In the ongoing campaign to restore my body to some semblance of the one I know & love don't mind, I went to the health food store for kelp pills. Thyroid issues run in my family and though mine was tested last spring, sometimes the blood panel doesn't catch it.*

So, kelp pills. Except they were out of the pill form, they just had the powder. Did I want the powder? Sure, I'd take the powder. The label read, "can be used as a salt substitute due to its salty flavor".

Uh, no. It doesn't have a "salty flavor". It tastes like fucking KELP. Kelp that's been lying in the sun for three days. And then been pooped on by seagulls.

At least I'm not burping it up. Nothing says, "Come give me a kiss, honey," like breath that smells like rancid seaweed.

*I would just go back to my doctor and get her to re-do the bloodwork except, well, I don't have a doctor anymore. Shortly before Christmas she just closed up her practice and went home to raise her babies (who are 5 and 7). No letter, no phone call, just a vague message on the clinic's answering machine and a tiny announcement in the local paper. Thanks a lot, lady.

Needs no explanation:

Did I mention I feel like shit? Yes? Well, it bears repeating. Since that seems to be the only thing in my brain right now. Other than mucus.

I'm not going to submit a logo to 99designs today. I re-worked one and re-submitted it, so I'm counting that.

(Apparently I even fail at 2-week Resolutions. Oh, don't act like you're shocked.)

And, yeah. That's all I got. Tune in next week when I promise to take psychotropic drugs or something to provide you with a more interesting post. You see the things I do for you guys?

Random up, link up, yadda yadda, blah blah. Where's my Neo Citran at?
