Can someone call a moratorium on the use of the phrase "Brokeback [noun]" to designate anything and everything gay? I fell into that trap when the movie was first released as well, but the joke (such as it was...it wasn't very original at the beginning) is played out.
I'm feeling like a total blank right now. Nothing terribly exciting at work, except my coworker Hyung had her baby last night. She told me yesterday that she was feeling contractions during the meeting, but when I said she might want to go home, just in case, she said there was no way she'd be lucky enough to have her baby early.
I assume she's happy that she went into labor a week or so early. She was looking really uncomfortable yesterday. I guess labor pains will do that to someone, especially at work.
I told Jan that we should offer the service of inducing labor for the other pregnant women in the office. Apparently, our meetings are dull enough that the babies will arrive just to escape.
I've gotten addicted to the free area of craigslist. It's entirely because I'm going to be moving into my own place in less than a month, but that knowledge doesn't keep me away from the ads. I find myself wondering if I could fit a sleeper sofa, a plant stand and a mahogany desk into the back of the Element.
If I tried, I think I could outfit the whole house with nothing but castoffs advertised on craigslist. People give away everything, from computers to kitchen tables to pets. I don't have enough time to take in a dog right now, but every time a dog is listed, I feel an almost overwhelming urge to go pick it up.
In the end, I know it's all so much junk I don't need to bring into my life, but I doubt I'll stop frequenting the ads anytime soon.
This is such a nothing entry. I need to sleep.
