I’m so glad Monday is done and over. It was already ‘a day’ before I even had my first cup of coffee – first I dumped an entire can of open soda all over the inside and outside of the fridge, which then culminated in a huge puddle in front of the fridge.
The huge puddle on the floor on front of the fridge wouldn’t normally be a big deal, except that since our house is almost 200 years old, the floors tend to slope towards the center – which means the huge puddle was traveling to a resting place underneath the fridge. Icky sticky mess.
As if that wasn’t enough, the milk I got out to pour on Princess Nagger’s breakfast cereal (that was the culprit that bumped into the open can of soda) that bowl of cereal and milk ended up getting spilled by Princess Nagger – all over herself, the couch, and the floor in front of the couch. Which has the sloping floors in the opposite direction, so the milk traveled underneath the couch. Another icky sticky mess.
Frantic clean-up in both rooms commenced, Princess Nagger had to go change her clothes, and ended up running out of time for a replacement breakfast before it was time to head out to wait for the bus. Not a great way to start a Monday for sure.
My day was salvaged, however, by the gorgeous and talented actress/writer/producer Jennifer Fontaine who started following me on Twitter:
Of course when somebody cool like that follows me, naturally I’m going to follow them back. When I followed her, she actually sent me a tweet:
Seriously? She loves my blog! After the crappy morning I had, that totally made my day. Totally.
Let’s talk about the weather, shall we? I see Mother Nature is still up to her menopausal old self – the poor people in the midwest having to deal with a funky winter snow storm named Walda inundating them with scads of snow when signs of life of spring should be springing forth instead:
Hopefully the dudes of Mt. Rushmore are still wearing their winter skivvies. I’m just sayin’.
Meanwhile, here in Punxsutawney country where gopher Phil resides, it appears that this week we’ve completely skipped ahead to summer instead of relishing in awesome spring weather. 80’s for the next few days? My biggest fear has been that since we really didn’t have a ‘proper’ winter, we’d bypass spring and end up with 6-months of stifling summer heat and humidity. I’m hoping this week is a fluke, and that Mother Nature will get back on her menopause meds so she can even things out.
Mama Kat posted this on Facebook last week and it totally cracked me up:
Hysterical. And that would totally be me, since running and I have never ever gotten along.
Someone who does run, though, is my awesome bloggy friend Denise from RunDMT – I mentioned yesterday I found her doppelgänger (if you’re a How I Met Your Mother fan, you’ll understand that reference). So if you missed it yesterday, here’s a picture of Denise she posted on Facebook by way of Instagram:
And here’s the awesome music artist Yael Meyer who is totally Denise’s doppelgänger:
Isn’t the resemblance uncanny? I thought so. When my friends and I did Glamour Shots years ago (where the stylist styled my hair with my natural curly waves), my mom thought I looked like Donna Mills (even though Donna Mills is older than my mom – go figure):
I’ll have to dig through my piles’o’boxes and see if I can find that picture – then I can do the comparison justice. I do hope that I age as gracefully as she has, looking hot at 70-something would be sweet:
Edited to add:
I completely forgot that my favorite doppelgänger comparison people have made of me is that of Lisa Kudrow – especially if you compare a black-and-white shot of her and my own black-and-white head-shot from 10-ish years ago:
Plus she’s not as obscure (and actually my age, not a decade or more older like Donna), so I think I like that comparison much better.
Do you have a doppelgänger?
