@adorable-eggplant Sorry you're having a rough day, but yes to margaritas. I hope you are able to enjoy a margarita soon.

Uhhhhh damnit why do I always have such a hard time with this. Let's think.
1. I'm on a big Topo Chico (Mexican fizzy water) kick right now.
2. I have fun plans Friday, Saturday, AND Sunday this weekend.
3. One of those plans is a party where there will be a baby animal petting zoo. Like, baby chicks, ducks, bunnies, etc.
4. I started taking antidepressants and I have now made it two whole days without crying at work!
5. I found out that my boss will let me postpone a business trip by one day so I don't have to celebrate my birthday alone in another city!

@stonefruit I thought I read somewhere that the kid got salmonella before they even left, and they decided to go anyway.

On Britain's First Clone Puppy Is 10-Day-Old Dachshund Named "Mini Winnie"

As the mom of an 11-year-old dachshund, this makes me cry a little. Except my little baby is going to live forever.

This is way too hard. Um, let me think.

1. I am hanging out with some lady friends tonight for an event we have dubbed "wine and whine."
2. I am going, by myself, to see Jillian Michaels on Sunday. I kind of didn't want to take anyone with me because I was afraid they'd make fun of me or whatever, so I'm gonna go alone!
3. It feels nice outside?
4. I got a massage on Wednesday. It had been about a year since my last one. It was divine.
5. I found a network of ladies who all hate their careers, and we are trying to join together to attend networking events, which is nice because going to those things alone is fairly brutal.

Oof. Hopefully next week I'll have an easier time coming up with 5 things! I like being forced to snap out of my bad mood for a few minutes though. Thanks, Rookie...

@DoMark Oh man, I can look at food and gain weight. I have to actively try to lose weight just to maintain. (I'm going to be 31 in 3 weeks.) I've had it all tested as well, and "everything is fine." I had the thought that I am going to have to track my calories for the rest of my life (just to even stay where I am, hopefully), and the thought exhausts me. So... I feel your pain.

Uuuggghhhh fuuuuck this week. Anyone else? I actually had to take a personal day on Wednesday, after getting 4 fillings and then having a lady at work chew me out in the break room for forgetting to respond to an email. That was just like, the thing that broke me and I had to go home because I couldn't stop crying. Good times.

I did make a lunch trip to Trader Joe's, where I acquired some cheap wine and some of this cookie butter I've heard so much about, as I plan tonight on getting wine drunk and eating my weight in graham crackers smothered in this stuff. (You know, if it is as good as people have made it sound.)

"What fresh hell is this? Oh, daytime."

This was me, as I had to leave work to take a personal day today because I just... couldn't. No one likes the cubicle cry-er.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Um, I love this idea. Let me think...
1. I just switched to a "spring" (green) purse and it makes me feel kinda cute when I carry it.
2. I've just discovered if I shower at night, my hair actually doesn't look like an old frayed broom (like when I just let it air dry in the morning. I guess because I now have time to straighten it. I'm very, very lazy.)
3. margaritas
4. The new Against Me! album
5. improv comedy
