Reasons why this post will suck

Uh, one: I should not be blogging.

I just spent the last 5 minutes trying to figure out what day it is. "It's Wednesday. No, not quite. Is it Monday? Maybe. Could be. Wait . . . Yes, it's TUESDAY."

Who doesn't know what day it is . . . for FIVE minutes!? Although, when I was pondering that particular question of the day, I was amazingly calm.

Okay, next reason: I attended a conference today. I drank:
  1. 3 cups of coffee

  2. 1 giant Diet Mountain Dew (which I've never had before, but they had already run out of Diet Pepsi)

  3. Another giant cup of coffee, and . . .

  4. No water.

I am thirsty and dehydrated to distraction (and probably more than a little wired up) and although I've sucked down almost an entire pitcher of Brita water, I am still having trouble removing my tongue from the roof of my mouth. Fascinating, yes?

And perhaps because of the conference and/or the dehydration situation, that's about all I got. Told ya - this post sucks. I'm trying to be okay with that because not even two years ago, I (vaguely) remember posting about some book title like No One Cares What You Had for Lunch - How to Write Fascinating Blog Entries - and I ripped on people who would need a book like that. I think I may have made comments in the realm of, "I ALWAYS have something to say. Who is SO boring that they have to blog about what they had for lunch? PLEASE. I could post 100 times a day about all kinds of fascinating, compelling issues and look at me go with my snarky bloggy self."

And now . . . well, witness the carnage. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. I'm not even interesting enough to tell you what I had for lunch (It was a chicken salad sandwich on ciabatta bread, if you're wondering) - I've stooped so low that I'm discussing beverages!!!!! Oh, the humanity!

Oh - and my eyes are crossing and I'm not even doing the most basic proof-reading which would have made my head spin not so long ago and now . . . eh. Not so much.

Now I will attempt to distract you with a picture of Minnie . . . in a dress. (This was NOT my idea, nor was this dress purchased by myself or Mr. J. In fact, Minnie was photographed wearing this dress because Mr. J. LOST A BET AT WORK. I think someone should call the ASPCA.)

Your liquid consumption made me feel ill vicariously. Hope you are well hydrated by now.
That picture of Minnie made me laugh out loud. I actually reminds me of my friend's sassy daughter when she puts on her princess dress. How cute is she???

It could have been worse. Mr. J could have been the one wearing the dress. LOL!

I have a conference next week... a three-dayer. I can already feel it starting to suck the lifeblood out of me.

My friend Betty puts dresses on her tiny dog and I told her that the dog is going to pee in her shoes to get her back for that...

Minnie is a lot smaller than I thought she was! I was thinking like 20 pounds, but she looks more like 6 pounds!

I know how you feel about the "having nothing to blog about" thing though. It's tough when you jump back into it. But as each week passes, a few more ideas pop into my head and I realize that there's more stuff out there to comment on than I thought there was! It'll come back to you, just give it time.

Hee. This was worth it for the picture alone.
