The shiny what? you may be asking. Anything, as long as it's shiny. I'm not picky; I'm in the mood for buying something shiny and pretty and fun --- something that I can dangle in front of myself when my brain is fried, saying "ooooh, sparkly!"
I missed my first-of-the-month academic deadline (oops). I have revised half of the article instead of the whole thing. On the other hand, I think I need this much time to get it all fixed, so I'm not too upset. Obviously having it done already would be ideal, but then again, so would having a team of handsome models to feed me chocolate truffles while I cogitate. As always, I'll just have to make do with the limitations of reality. Sigh.
Anyway, I was searching for something properly Shiny! and Fun! and decided that I need one of these:
Perty, huh? I like it. And I've been very good about going to my exercise class lately, and feeling grumpy about my workout clothes, which are boring and I'm tired of them, so maybe it is time to get something cute to look at while spinning! (I guess the team of models with chocolate would also work...)
I think I like this orange/gold color best:
But then again I like the red a lot too (I love the color red anyways):
Which do I choose? Help me!
Ok, also ---- I could just buy this now to celebrate the fact that I seem to have made exercise a new habit for myself, or I could not buy it until I send out the article and reward myself with it then. Only problem is if I had to order it and then wait, even longer, after all the waiting to get my article revised! Hmmm. Pondering. If you weigh in on this you also must pick a color! There was also a beautiful green-and-gold flowery type design on their site when I looked a few months ago, but it seems to be gone now. Sad. I guess it makes it a little easier to choose though.
In other silly news, my niece is such a total overprepared weirdo that she shops for Christmas presents early. She just emailed me to say that, at July, this is her latest and most behind she has ever been on her Christmas shopping, so I better get her some suggestions damn quick. I must be getting a garlic press in December. Heh.
