    We were driving on a bridge above a lake, so it’s basically just highways, light posts, and water.
    Rooster pointed to a light post right in front of us. A three foot bird was on it, and pretty hard to miss. “Bald eagle.”
    Me: “Good eye!”

    I had a hair appt yesterday and decided to indulge my desire to get some rose gold. Poor planning because I had a 5k last night in horrible humidity so I absolutely had to wash my hair after :sad:. I hope at least some of the color is left.

    I stubbed my toe this morning and cracked the nail all bloody and bruised (broke?) it.

    @HBC Ouch. Your fingers and toes need a vacation.

    My dumb moment today — G had surgery, and can’t talk for a few days. He’ll be on vocal rest for around a week. I was there all day and drove him home. On the way back, we picked up C at daycare, and about 15 minutes after we got home, decided to just get McDonald’s for dinner. I’d go to pick it up for obvious reasons.

    C went to hand me a book to read her right before I was about to leave, and I was like, “Go give it to Dada! Dada will read to you!” NO HE CAN’T, RORY.

    @MagnificentCat I’m linking a nice handout on it below but essentially, making sure that you have healthy habits for your voice. There are a lot of things you can do that abuse your tiny vocal folds and can cause some major issues. Irritants like uncontrolled acid reflux, caffeine, smoking, allergies, throat clearing are big ones. Jobs or activities with repeated wear on your voice like coaching, singing, yelling over noisy environments, etc. I see many patients who have vocal damage but are unwilling to make lifestyle changes :shrug:

    As I sit here with my bottle of Tums and Warheads, I realize that those who can’t do, teach.

    I was using T’s phone to write something out for him, when a text popped up. I was so confused that this person was texting me, because I have never texted them, when T had to tell me I was on his phone. Derp.

    Hit Dismiss instead of Snooze this morning. I woke up in time to get dressed and get out the door at least. BUT now my planned quick getaway after work to go home is blown.

    Oh and I forgot to take my cymbalta. Thank God I dont react to it like I did effexor, so no zaps but defo slight headache.

    Getting off my train yesterday, in a thought fog, and wondered if I was in the mood for a post-work glass of wine or not. Then I was like "Oh no, I can't drink right now, I have my period." I forgot that you only can't drink when you're pregnant. Drinking during your period is totally fine, Fitz. Derp.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    To be fair if I have wine on my period it hits me 3x harder than it normally does, so maybe Thought Fog Fitz is onto something.

    My local TV episode was posted online today but I am too mortified to watch. I do know thanks to a friend that “I eat a lot of pizza” made the final cut :lol:

    I think you meant to put this in the “Cone of Greatness” thread.

    I apparently left my brain with P. This morning was just all Benny Hill theme all the time. The best example I want to share with all of you.

    Iced coffee is not cold coffee without the ice. That's not news to anyone over the age of 5 except me. I got to the hospital cafe and ordered iced coffee "no ice" because I had about 5min to slam it down and get my much needed caffeine fix. The coffee lady looked at me like I had three heads, double checked that it was what I ordered, and gave me a giant plastic cup of hot as hell coffee. Yup. Luckily, all hospital floors have multiple ice machines, but that was still a very long and embarrassed walk for me.

    I saw someone I know and they were fairly far away. I saw them moving their hand and thought they were waving at me. I waved back, then realized they were shaking a drink bottle and not looking at me.

    Is that better or worse than enthusiastically waving at someone you think you know but is actually a stranger?

    I do this all the time. In my defense, I live in the urban version of Stars Hollow so most of the time I do actually know the person! But.... sometimes I do not.

    Yesterday my friends and I were talking about how hard it can be not to fart when doing certain forms of exercise.

    Guess what I did in Pilates class today?

    @Tumnus the best/worst is when they wave back all friendly.
