Looking at today’s randomness I noticed a theme -and you might remember I like that. Without further ado let’s call this ‘the bad, the good and the plain random’ edition of Thinking out loud. Because there’s an upside to most every bad – and then some thoughts that follow no rhyme or reason. The ‘bad’: it’s going to be a crazy day at work because we have a huge event coming up tomorrow. The good: Amanda‘s hosting another round of [more or less] freestyle-blogging. And now let’s move onto the random!
1. The bad: If you’re following me on Twitter [link] you might have already seen it
Fun times. Only not. However, as much as I disliked it, I felt empathy for the doctors at the practice whose regular working time was until 7 PM. But when I left at shortly past that there were still more patients waiting. What confused me even more: people annoyedly leaving the waiting room before they even got to see one of the doctors.2. The good: Getting a better idea of what’s been causing me serious pain for weeks now. And this girl keeping me entertained while waiting. Blends for the win once more.
3. The random: Picking up a new hand lotion a few days ago I noticed the ’24-hour moisturization’ claim on the packaging. Now that’s all fine and well but: who needs that? Like everybody else I expect my hand lotion to keep my skin nice and smooth but Unless you were to wash your hands just once a day which would be gross. In that case please listen to me and go wash your hands now, please?!
4. Are you ever lured into buying something just because it looks cute? Case in point was the above-mentioned hand lotion. I wouldn’t absolutely have needed another one to add to my ever-growing collection – though it’s nice to have one in every handbag.
5. The bad: a strike taking place that involved all public transport being closed down. Good job choosing a busy Wednesday for a strike – only not so much when you aren’t part of the strikers but those who still need to get to work.
6. The good: My boss offering to pick me up and drive me back home after work.
7. The random: Nonsensical product declarations #2. My coconut flour. The label gluten-free obviously makes a lot of sense on this one but lactose-free??! I don’t remember ever wondering if any flour contained lactose so this seems very redundant and isn’t it in a way suggesting we as customers didn’t know this obvious fact? Really, now …
8. The weekly life-changing quiz: Haven’t you always wondered which high school you actually belonged in?!
9. Will I ever learn not to write my posts way too late at night? Probably not but for now I’ll just leave it at saying …
10. Happy Thursday!
Happiness inducing today: Randomly getting a chance to read a book I’d been interested in for a while but couldn’t find at my library.
