Still Waiting For My Miracle

Since it's New Years' Eve, and no one is reading, I've decided to embrace my inner laziness and simply bring you a list of ten things I did in the past seven days.
And if you ARE reading, consider yourself hugged. (And groped, if you're into that sort of thing.)

1. Broke a thumbnail down into the quick, and it bled a lot.

2. Played in a brass ensemble on Christmas Eve, and our program included Joy To The World, in the key of D-Major. When I got back out to my car I found it had a thin layer of ice on it (like freezing rain or freezing drizzle). Or, maybe some disgruntled person with a full bladder had peed on my car. Who knows. It was dark and I couldn't tell.

3. Tried not to think about the fact that I will be 38 on January 11th.

4. Wore a yellow bathrobe and wondered if I looked like a giant lemon.

5. Enjoyed winter weather and felt eternally grateful that summer is a LONG way away.

6. Went out for Chinese food with my folks and got a fortune cookie that said "You will soon witness a miracle." I'm still waiting.

7. Wrote "Murgatroid Was Here" in purple ink on the back of my hand, for no reason.

8. Made a necklace (and matching bracelet) for my mom.

9. Realized I am getting old, because one of my favorite cereals is now "Shredded Wheat And Bran".

10. Wondered what hemlock tastes like, and whether it would be good in salads.

This is the first time I've commented on your site! Thanks for the hug...the grope was nice too, just what I needed.

So, I'll trade you my 50 on the 12th for your 38 on the 11th.

RE: 6. "You will soon witness a miracle." I always add 'in the bedroom' to whatever the fortune says... it's good for a giggle.

Happy MM!!

Thank you for the Grope. I realize it was just a SMALL gesture on your part. But it is the TINY and INSIGNIFICANT things that we do that put a LITTLE light shining in our SHORT lives.

May you have a great new year.

Later Y'all.

Janna said...

Harlekwin: Welcome! Thanks for reading and commenting! And thanks for giving me hope that I will witness a miracle in the bedroom. It's a meager hope, I know, but still...

Meloncutter: I knew you would never SHRINK away from a good groping.

Mr. Fabulous said...

How did you break your thumbnail?

Matt-Man said...

38? Ppppffffffft. Happy New Year and Cheers!!

Square1 said...

The hug was lovely. Thank you so much! Darn the Murgatroid, he always has to vandalize stuff! And you've witnessed a miracle, I'm commenting on your blog. :P As far as hemlock... umm... I wouldn't recommend it. I'm pretty sure it's poisonous, and even if it tasted nasty you wouldn't have to worry about it for long. Stay away from it, you still have many jokes to tell and laughs to produce. I prefer comedy over tragedy any day.

Interesting bits of randomness. Umm about the hemlock? Nah...not a good thing to find out.

A yellow bathrobe! I love it!

Janna said...

NurseMyrs: Happy New Year to you too!

Bee: Any day I can scare the hell out of you is a good day. :)

Mr. Fab: I was trying to pry the cap ring off of a new container of milk.

Matt-man: When I grow up, I want to be just like you. Well, maybe a combination of you and Fab and Betty White.

Square1: But it might be really good in salads!

Julie: My entire LIFE consists of interesting bits of randomness.

Bwahahahahahah, I wouldn't try the hemlock in the salad thing. Bwahahahahah. Have a great MM and a very Happy New Year. :)

what do you have against 38? personally i think every day that i wake up is a huge miracle considering some of the crap i pulled when i was younger. anyhow, happy birthday a bit early.

you know, most folks aren't posting, which is why so many others are not reading. but i am here for you. and the grope was VERY appreciated. thanks! (i'll be back for more.)

Travis said...

The grope was very nice, thanks!

Just keep telling yourself that you like the cereal because it tastes good.

Paula said...

Happy New Year Janna.

I like your blog the best of all. its so damn wierd...and that helps me feel not so alone (even if my wierd is more insulated).

And I actually got a little zap from the grope...thank you so much. Been a while since I got some girlie action.

crazy working mom said...

Happy Early birthday, Janna. :)

Pand0ra Wilde said...

Dangit, Janna, now I want me some Chinese food. I haven't had any in six months!

Janna said...

Sandee: With the right dressing, hemlock might be delicious.

Hello: What I have against 38 is this: It's WAY too close to 40, and 40 scares the crap out of me.

Travis: It... it... DOES taste good. (**sob**)

Tegdirb: Thanks! You too!

Paula: Awww, thanks! You like me best of all? !!! Wow, that makes my heart all puffy and warm. Or it could be the spicy pizza I had for dinner. Either way, I liked it.

CWM: Thanks. :)

Pand0ra: None at all?? Why not? Go, get out there and order some egg rolls or something! Life is short!
