I’m so glad it’s Friday! Tonight is Pizza and Video Games night, and Chris got Xbox Live credit from a friend for Christmas and used it to buy a bunch of new albums for Rock Band. We’ll be jamming to Rush’s Moving Pictures right after we have our new Naturals Pizza from Pizza Hut, courtesy of the fine folks at the Zeno Group, who would like me to review it
I have a big jumble of thoughts in my head today, they are like a tangle of vines keeping me from staying focused on any one thing. I keep bouncing back and forth from Gmail to Outlook to Bloglines, to…oooh, look! something shiny! Be prepared for a bunch of randomness:
I’ve been actually reading feeds in Bloglines today, instead of just marking them all as “Read” and feeling guilty about it. It’s been like catching up with old friends, although I hope when they see my comments they don’t forget who I am. Elizabeth? Who? Didn’t she stop reading my blog 3 months ago?
Yeah. Guilty as charged. I got so swept up from about the beginning of November until well, just now. Like I’ve been stuck behind a curtain and now I’m peeking my head out to see if anyone notices.
Hey! Guess what! I can’t stand this blog theme anymore! I know, BIG FREAKING SHOCK! Table for Five is changing her theme AGAIN. What is that, five, six, seven themes? Frankly, I’ve lost count myself. Actually, I’ll be getting a professionally designed theme thanks to my new gig as an IZEA Insider, I’ve steeled myself to accept what they come up with even if it looks completely different than what I usually choose. As long as it’s not orange.Â Or black.Â Or too purple.
Have I told you about my elbow? I haven’t, have I? I woke up on December 26th and my left elbow hurt. Like, ached. I thought maybe I had slept funny, with my elbow bent under me or something. I took some Advil and figured it would stop hurting. It hasn’t. It hurts all the time.
There are no lumps around it, it’s not discolored or swollen, so I don’t think there’s a fracture and I don’t think it’s a tumor. My husband suggested arthritis, because my left arm also feels weaker. Like, it hurts to try to lift up Kaitlyn’s high chair tray, or pick up a full 32 ounce pop cup from the cupholder in the car, which is what I was doing when I said to Chris, have I told you about my elbow?
Arthritis. Next thing you know I’ll be buying a condo in Del Boca Vista and eating dinner at 4:30.Â hey! you kids! get off my lawn!
Guess what else? I’m reviving the “They Link To Me, Therefore They Are Awesome!” blogroll!Â At least I will be as soon as I find where I saved the document I copy/pasted it into the last time I changed themes.Â But could you do me a favor? I’m hoping those of you who subscribe to my feed will see this post, and if you also have Table for Five on your blogroll or links page or whatever you call it, could you let me know? Leave a comment on this post or email me at elizabeth(at)table4five(dot)net. I want to make sure I’m linking up everyone who is linking to me. It will probably be on a separate page if it’s as long as I think it is
I’ve been feeling dull lately. Like I’ve lost my ability to poke fun at myself and the world around me, like I’ve become this blog robot. I have a whole category called “Well, it’s funny to me” and it’s woefully underrepresented. I’m going to try to find that again, that spark that I feel like I lost.Â I’m actually kind of funny, and really sarcastic, and I feel like that person isn’t always the same one who posts here.Â I’d like her to show up more often.
Whoa, that got kind of heavy there. And long, this post is very long, thanks for reading all the way to the end. Coming up next, more DVD reviews and a giveaway of some KN Karen Neuberger chenille socks and some bath stuff, so watch for that one.Â Please to enjoy your weekend as well.
