What I've Learned Thus Far

Seeing as how we are already 4 days into the New Year, I thought I might share with you some tidbits of things that I've learned so far this year.

1. I learned that the makers of foundation should come up with more original names for the different shades, much like the nail polish O.P.I. I finally used up the last bit of my Loreal Infallible #605 foundation the other day. When I went to go check out the other colors, I decided that it was time to trade in my "nude beige" color for #604 seeing as how it is a better color for my albinoness skin tone this time of year. The name of the color: Natural Ivory. It really should be called "Get Thee To A Tanning Bed."

2. When I took Macy to the vet because she was still having some, ahem, digestive issues, I learned that they don't actually make medications for dogs. The medicine that dogs can take is the same medicine that you and I would take, just adjusted for dosing. If that’s the case, why the heck didn’t he tell me to give her a dose of Pepto-Bismol or Imodium before they charged me $100 to tell me that she has diarrhea. Thanks, Captain Obvious for that little tidbit of information. I didn’t need a degree from vet school to figure that much out. Somehow the big pile of poo in my living room had already led me to that conclusion. Thankfully, she is doing better now that we’ve dropped $30 on approved-as-safe-for-dogs human medication for her.

3. I learned that no matter what, I’m never going to be one of those people that enjoy staying up till midnight on New Years Eve. It’s just not worth it. Trust me, I'm a better person for not staying up past bedtime.

4. I've learned that all that global warming garbage is causing us tons of problems here in the deep South where it was 20 degrees this morning with a windchill of 11 when I left for work. If this is Winter with global warming, we're gonna be in an Ice Age in just a few years!

5. And I learned that when taking OTC medication for this nasty cold that I’ve procured, my spelling gets really bad (or creative, just depending on how you look at it). I just spelled the word “skills” as “skils.” That my friend, takes skilz.

Have a great day!

You make me smile. :-) Thanks for the dog tip, I'll remember that.

Have you ever seen the show Word Girl on PBS? They have a character called "Lady Redundant Woman." Your "Captain Obvious" reminded me of that. Super Heroes unite! (Or Untie, if you're taking cold medicine....) Hardy har har

I've never seen 'super pale' as a color on the charts for makeup. I'd probably need one shade lighter than that! LOL

I feel for ya with the doggie poo probs. My kitty had that and at least she always hit the ahem.. mark with it. But since it's a litter box, it's not like I got off scott-free. Still had to scoop the puddly mess. Pets are fun, aren't they?! :-D

Hope you get over your cold lickity-split! It's not fun having a runny nose when it's freezey cold outside. Just sayin'.

LOL! I'm glad they don't creatively name foundations - not sure I want to be called "Mister Data". :)
