Black Friday, Blue Saturday?

27 Nov
Fortunately, one’s calves do not accurately reflect one’s intake on Thanksgiving.

I’m not sure what happened today but after having 2, TWO, Thanksgiving dinners in a row, the giving of thanks has paralyzed me. No remix, no nothin’. I’m still in my pajamas. That’s what happens when no one comes over and I have nothing to do and I have over 450 emails in my inbox.

By nothing to do I mean to imply that I refused to do anything productive. And this productivity machine required the assistance of her cocktail-makin’ hubby and a rainy day to make that aspiration come to fruition. (A little goes a long way, don’tcha know?) I don’t know about you but I require professional grade intervention to keep me from going, going, going. After my first couple cups of coffee and mega doses of sugar in the form of chocolate, whipped cream, pumpkin pie and cranberry scones, I had a problem. (That wasn’t breakfast, by the way. That was pre-breakfast.)

I was ready to take this day by storm but really, I needed to do nothing. Doing nothing is a very important part of being alive. I’m still working on it, I understand it in theory but I’m not good at doing it. I’m one of those people that think sleeping in means getting up at 8am on a Sunday. I know, I know, I have a problem. Look, if you saw me today you’d be proud.

Let me demonstrate via my outfit du jour how well I did: Glasses, (never got the contacts in.) Forest green DKNY pajamas with lime green piping. Grey winter weight Smartwool hiking socks, no shoes, thereby guaranteeing I don’t step outside. Somewhere nearby: Over-sized short flannel baby blue robe wtih clouds. I bought this for sister about 10 years ago. Needless to say, it’s mine now. I’m a very bad gift giver. If you don’t come over to claim it, I’ll keep it and never mention said gift again.

So, it’s not technically cheating if I didn’t get dressed. I would have had I needed to but I didn’t. As a consolation prize, I  did feature the fantastic peacock tights that I wore yesterday to aforementioned Thanksgiving Numero Dos.

The best part about being an adult is that you get to give yourself a free pass whenever you want. Like right now.

For the record, today was not a complete wash. I experienced snowboarding envy and I cleaned out my inbox, (current count: 24.)
