Coming to you live from the usual spot, my desk in my bedroom where all the magic happens (I mean creative writing magic). Writing with my sunglasses on because I have a persistent headache – since last night. I’m not my usual awesome self today, obviously. It even hurts to laugh and no more pills for 24 hrs.
By six am, I knew I wasn’t going to make it, but I had meetings I needed to honour. I sent my boss an email telling him I will probably only do a half-day cause of my headache. He replies saying that he had a headache too and it made him puke – My boss overshares but I still love him. (I guess since I am putting my journal online, I’m oversharing too).
Work is picking up again – I don’t want it to mess with my writing tempo, hehe (a nod to Discover One Word Prompt of the day 🙂
I’m mulling over the idea to get another Monocle Book of Japan. One to keep on my shelf as a collector’s item, I won’t even take the plastic off, and the other to take everywhere. I think I’m gonna do it. I didn’t get the chance to install Japanese keyboard yet.
Got the May issue of my Monocle Mag today – I am happy!
I don’t have any Japanese friends. I have Indian friends, Russian friends, Egyptian friends, Jamaican friends, Polish friends, Romanian friends. The thought crossed my mind to use Bumble to find Japanese friends, but I feel that would be wrong – Nobody makes friends so they could learn a new language. Friendship comes naturally.
I could date a Japanese guy though cause dating is a forced relationship (that sounds bad, but it kinda is at least in the beginning)
The boys were making all kinds of noise and I had to keep shushing them all-day “Don’t knock on my door so loud.” WTF!!! A few weeks back, I wrote: I Am In A Meeting! on a PostIt. I’d stick it on my door like clearly, if you see the note, don’t knock and don’t barge in – that message isn’t clear to them. Boys are weird!
I can only hehe. Can’t LOL or LMAO today, which sucks cause I love to laugh.
If the whole world laughs when I laugh, does the whole world have a headache right now? Damn right, it’s called COVID-19 🙂
