Well Hell Michelle
After a crappy start to the week, it was great to hang out with everyone, drink a couple of martinis and belt out some hard rock karaoke (AC/DC and Led Zeppelin songs I'm already doing in the cover band).
I learned something about karaoke: the lyrics they give you are rubbish. Any basic Internet lyrics search will give you much more accurate lyrics than the random junk they were projecting onto the screen for the songs I did last night.
Before all that, I did get my photo taken at work. Unfortunately, despite having brought makeup to fix myself up after yoga class, I was still shiny and pumpkin-headed. Photoshop can fix the shiny, but there's nothing to be done about my huge melon. Still, I'm sure one of the shots will be good enough for the article in which it is to appear.
I wish I could say I slept better last night, but I found myself wide awake at 5:00 a.m. I turned off all of my white noise sources and managed to go back to sleep until 7. Fortunately, I'm feeling perfectly energetic during the day, so maybe I'm just going through a phase where I don't need as much sleep as usual.
Speaking of sleepiness, if you're a coffee fan and a blogger you might want to check out this offer from Joffrey's Coffee and Tea Company. Sign up for their "coffee beta test" and you could get a sample of one of their flavored coffees, as well as a link from their site. Even though I'm no longer drinking the caffeine, I still signed up for some decaf because it sounds delicious.
All right, I'm out of here. I need to get dressed and made up, and then stop by my credit union on the way to work. Enjoy your Thursday!
