07:08 pm - Grrr Day
This was the kind of day for which, when I came home after work, the only real question was whether I would indulge myself in carbs from home or indulge myself with unhealthy fast food. (The answer was carbs from home: whole-wheat cinnamon pancakes, peanut butter, agave nectar. I had a small salad first.) Now, in penance, I'm drinking hot lemon water, which to be frank is a poor penance because I like hot lemon water.)

This was the kind of day in which I had to walk away from computer time before I said something I shouldn't. This was also the kind of day where I purposely didn't click on horrible news stories because the bad news will still be there tomorrow. (But I felt and feel guilty about avoidance all the same.)

This was the kind of day where the trousers I had initially planned to wear had a ripped hem in one leg; the kind of day where for my next outfit choice I put on much-loved, little-worn skyscraper heels, which proved so painful within five minutes that I took them off and put them in the To Donate bag. The replacement heels worked better, but, eh.

This was the kind of day where I was still a bit sulky about the under-use of Jarvis in last night's Agent Carter.

This was the kind of day where I almost joined Master Danger in barking at the wind. Grrr. It was a Grrr Day.

I think I'll dance to old Prince tunes for a little while, and then indulge in the novel version of carbs-from-home. Work, like bad news, will be there tomorrow.

May your days this week be far, far from Grrrr.

I hope the rest of your week is far less Grrr-worthy.

On grrr days, it's best to grrr. And indulge in carbs at home, so much better than the other kind.

Hope tomorrow is a prrrr day.

Today is a slightly quieter grrr, so I take that as a win. :)

Cheers to you as we move toward the weekend!

[hugs] and may the rest of the day, and week, be free of GRRRRRS. Unless, of course, the growling is recreational.

Master Danger does growl recreationally at times, I do believe. ;)

Cheers and hugs to you!

Carbs from home are generally superior to carbs from elsewhere!

The pancakes were delicious. :)

Cheers and respite to you, Barb!

I hope the dancing had a salutary effect. And Master Danger may have the right idea about grr-ing when necessary.

Hugs and hopes for a better rest of the week!

Pretty sure the young master just grrs as an expression of his inner surly nature!

Hugs and beneficial rain to you!

I've often wished that barking was an acceptable human response to annoyances. My niece could copy my brother's dog and grrr before she could talk, which was very amusing. Hope tomorrow is a better day.

Oh, L. I'm sorry for contributing to the grrness of that day. :( Thanks for not blowing your stack at me, which must have been tempting.

Hugs for better days.

I think you did very well all things considered. Hope the rest of the week is much better.

I managed to get through the day, which was a win. :)

On to the weekend, and cheers for you!

Your carbs were certainly healthy ones, so go you! Sorry to hear your day was crummy, but glad you're turning your day around with good food followed by dancing :-)

Here's hoping today's Grrr day was an aberration!

Healthy-ish carbs, at least! I am trying. :)

Cheers, hugs, and dancing to you today!

No grrr days here, it's been more of a sigh and eyeroll kind of week, with a splash of oh-god-what-did-I-do-wrong-now.

Though now that I think of it, one progression from barking at the wind would be howling at the moon and I'm pretty sure I could get behind that.

How was your carb-novel?

also ((HUGS)))

Sighing and eye-rolling is probably slightly better on the Less Pleasing Day scale, but only slightly! [hugs]

I ended up not doing a carb-novel but watching the James-and-Eve sections of Skyfall instead. I've also just read Rogue Royale by Jeremy Duns, which is a v. short work about a long-unknown Ben Hecht (!!!) script for Casino Royale. I'm now contemplating either Duns' compendium of work on Bond or his spy novels. :)

Hugs hugs!

((Hugs)) You don't need to do penance. If that's your big indulgence....when I have such a day I don't mess around. I go full-on gelato and mocha latte. With whipped cream. I'm a professional.

Of course, if I did that every time I had a bad day it would be every day, so I try to limit myself to dark chocolate most of the time.

I feel you on the shoes. I hope you're having a better time now.

I am sorry you're having bad days, my friend. Hugs, dark chocolate, scarves, boots, and more hugs!
