Is anyone else like me in that every once in a while you start feeling profoundly malnourished and hungry all the time? Lately I just feel like I'm not getting enough food even though I'm eating what I can when I can. It's probably my body responding to getting more exercise after a lengthy convalescence/bout of laziness. It's kind of like when I was climbing a lot and trying to keep up with the calorie deficit, except now I mostly sit around at work and then watch TV at home and still I feel underfed.
Luckily, there's another goddamn baby shower today for an unborn fetus and its proud mother-to-be. Have I mentioned what a big fan I am of these things? I'd link to my last hateful baby shower diatribe, but I'm at work and this computer won't let me. It was only about six or eight weeks ago (January 24, actually), so go find it yourself if you need further evidence of my feelings on the matter.
The "luckily" part really isn't sarcastic, though, because my boss is the one who organized the food this time, and she knows how to do it right. I remember our Christmas party being quite the hearty feast and my bony, wasted frame is hopeful for a repeat of that bountiful spread.
This is shower number three in the relatively short time I've been here, and this time I settled on a card and a bag of chips as my contribution. The only thing on the Target register I deemed affordable (at $8.99) was a Winnie the Pooh lampshade, but I figured they probably wanted the lamp that goes with it, and I'm not shelling out the additional $14.99 for that. I don't know her that well. Besides, you never know when the next girl around here is going to get knocked up, and I don't want to go setting the bar too high. This place sure is fertile.
This post was really mellow considering I'm talking about babies and ridiculous harpy office women. Was that last statement overly misogynistic? Have I lost my edge? Fuck (included to prove I'm still too edgy for cable.)
Edgy, I tell you.
