True Colors

This morning I walked in the office and there was food provided for everyone on BOTH sides of the building so I was sandwiched between this:



and this (from Jack’s):



I’m not sure I need to really say anything else. I came very close to eating a biscuit but decided against it. It smelled so good in here but I’m OK I guess. No one has ever died from wanting fried chicken TOO much, though I think I might believe it if I heard a story about it.

Honestly, I don’t feel great as it is so I’m not as ravenous as I would normally be if there was glazed fried dough in my presence. My lymph nodes a really tender and my head has been killing me. Last night I kept seeing spots when I was walking. Blech. I’m pretty positive that it’s allergy related so I’m just going to take some Benadryl tonight and go to bed early.

I have been very honest lately. I think I am supposed to be working on my anger issues or at least that’s what my Dad says. This girl at work says I have this irritated laugh that is really scary. I know exactly what she’s talking about. I won’t say which parent or friend I get it from. I will flip my hair, get crazy eyes and let out this loud laugh that sounds manic and shrill and mean. It’s actually a running joke between Jordan and I. There are just certain things that bring out my true colors. Some of my triggers are when people are ignorant, when they preach about something they haven’t done their research on, when they don’t do things they say they are going to do, terrible drivers, slow computers...you know the usual. Mostly, I just fly off the handle at random times..when you least expect it. I don’t know what brought this on but many of you that read this blog are those that are the closest to me so if you’ve ever been a victim of my rage...sorry? Sometimes I call it diet rage but if I’m being honest with myself...I was mean before Weight Watchers. What are the triggers that bring out your true colors (yes, I am gearing up for Cyndi Lauper lyrics at the end of the blog...I don’t care if it’s cheap...it’s Friday, my mind is fried and I am out of creativity and subtlety) ?

I’m not sure why that was on my mind...perhaps because I’ve had more crazy moments than usual lately like leaving my car running or like last night when I quite literally almost had a panic attack while walking because there were a bazillion little fuzzy white bugs flying all around my face. I’m glad nobody with sensitive ears was around me at that point.

Anyway, I have another busy weekend in store. Nichole is graduating from the University of Alabama tomorrow! I am SO proud of her and it JUST hit me the other day that she is moving to New York at the end of the summer. Nichole, if you read this...I expect us to make a goal of eating at Moe’s like 50 times before you go. But because I love you, I did some research and I searched for Moe’s in your area and guess what?! There is one RIGHT on top of CUNY...I mean it’s less than a mile if not right inside the thing. So, you won’t be without it. I WILL be visiting so just be prepared.

So-Saturday night, we will be celebrating Nichole’s graduation but we will also be celebrating May birthdays! (Me Included.)

Sunday is Mother’s Day so my brother and I are going to cook for our Mom.

Should be a good weekend!

I hope you have one too.

And here are the lyrics (ask my friends...I burst into this song all the time):

“Show me a smile then
don't be unhappy, can't remember
when I last saw you laughing
if this world makes you crazy
and you've taken all you can bear
you call me up
because you know I'll be there

And I'll see your true colors
shining through
I see your true colors
and that's why I love you
so don't be afraid to let them show
your true colors
true colors are beautiful
like a rainbow.” True Colors-Cyndi Lauper
