I have no idea what to put here for that prompt… my first thought was emoticons.
But what is all this “OMG” business?!?!?!
I have no idea what might be worthy of l33t-like speak – the state of politics, maybe?

How old do I feel?
This has that feel of a trick question – some days I feel like I am 12, other I feel like I am 80. Most days, however, I feel like that shit isn’t important.

What went perfectly about my
day last 24 hours?
My son and I volunteered as the big Greek festival through his Scout troop. I love seeing him do service, though it was interesting that he thought of it in terms of what he got out of it rather than the act of it, but he is young and I suppose that will come with maturity.

Who hosted the last party I went to…
“Never miss a party…good for the nerves–like celery.”
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gatsby Girls
It was my 1st cousin, once removed. Her sweet sixteen. I quick Facebook message was the invite followed by something more formal by her mother.
I did not have celery.
What was the last thing I said?
I have had a horribly terrible no good cough for three weeks now… it is crap.
Also, that quote of good ol’ Marcus down there… well, it kinda pissed me off. Because, in my grumpy state, it seems to presume that most people don’t know that is a good idea and is all judgy and shitty. I don’t feel good, remember…

Was I stressed
today in the last twenty-four hours? Why?
I am supposed to be a part of this new woman focused leadership program but it has been stressful. I never received my packet , so I have not seen anything official that I was accepted though I suppose an email with a “you’re in” was enough to let me know I was a participant.
I asked and was promised that then the invoice part came and they still got that wrong – I am shaking my head because I frankly expect more from women. And as a women targeted program it SUCKS so far! I am trying to be more patient since I would be in the inaugural class.
I still have no idea what I have not received, and I am trying my hardest to treat this like an exercise in managing my patience.
As for the leadership program, I am sure there is more to come about that here! It starts tomorrow.

What did I do with my free time
today in the last twenty-four hours?
I watched Australian TV on Netflix and then made cheesy cauliflower rice.

The computer I use most often is…..
My phone, I can’t believe how much I rely on my smart phone for things like; word processing, looking things up, and cheap entertainment.

When is the last time I intentionally wasted a whole day?
but first – 1 picture, 2 questions, 3 quotes, 4 videos… interesting.
- Define waste?
- A whole day?
I waste plenty of time by other people’s (and certainly my own) standards.
