Stubbed My Toe
Not literally. But my toe did hurt while in down dog yesterday. It may be time for another pedicure. I have really weird toes that are prone to ingrowns and I have to watch it. Sometimes, I cannot even stand to have the weight of a sheet across the tops of my toes.
No, my stubbing was more of the behavioral variety. I was going along and having a good day and I made a decision that has made me uneasy. A work friend forwarded to me and several other co-workers (as URGENT) a "Joke" email that I found offensive. I chose to do a REPLY ALL and said:
Please do not forward to me any thing with political content. Obviously, our politics and views are very different and I wouldn't want that to interfere with our friendship.
I do believe that silence implies compliance, but I now wish that I hadn't done the reply all. And now I need to decide if I owe an apology.
In other news, I need some creative advice. Backstory - if I am vertical, then I am cold. I am cold in cars, I am cold in offices, I am cold in movie theatres and I am cold at home. Doesn't matter what the ambient temperature is, I am cold. If you see me riding shotgun in Bick's truck, I will be wrapped in an Eddie Bauer fleece blanket that stays in his truck for just that purpose. If you have to ride with me, you will see that I will attempt to make you comfortable, but I will shut off all vents on my side of MalibuKen. Being cold is one thing, having cold air BLOWING on me turns me into a rat-tailed bitch. So I am fond of the pashmina. I have a variety of them and I adore them. I bought a summer shawl this weekend. I found it at World Market - just a plain white sari/wrap/pashmina with fringed edges. It's light and white and will go with everything. Great, no? No. I look like I'm wrapped up in a bed sheet. It's too white. So here's the creative question - I want to doll this wrap up - by enhancing it in some way. These enhancements need to be something that can be added one at a time - I don't want this to turn into some project that I don't complete and can't use. No, the wrap needs to be usable while in process. And it needs to be remain washable and not have things fade on it. Okay, put on your thinking caps and give me some ideas to doll up my summer wrap! Buttons? Appliques? Pantiliners?
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Beware of cold shoulders.
