No post today, because it’s snowing—SNOWING—and the barometric pressure in the big ball of pain I’m calling my head is giving me the bends, and I’m cold because I gave Jane my gloves and Sunny my scarf in the car this morning because we were not prepared and they get recess and I don’t.
Plus, I grabbed the wrong coat from the Closet o’ Forgotten Winterwear—or rather, the right coat with the three buttons that I’ve been meaning to sew back on since mid-March, as it turns out there is no such thing as a Button Fairy.*
Or a Dry Cleaning Fairy, either.
I also had a ‘flu shot today, so I’m slightly nauseated, which no one really wants to hear about in any detail, and my arm hurts, too, because the city nurse does not mess around.
And all I want to do is go home and make hot tea—I’ve had enough w(h)ine already, I think—and bundle up on the couch under every blanket we own to re-watch Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, with commentary this time.
Which is pretty much all I have to offer today—nothing, with commentary.
I’ll do better tomorrow.
* Or maybe there is, but she’s armed with a tiny pair of scissors and a juvenile sense of humor, instead of a needle and a benevolent nature. She was probably corrupted by the Toilet Paper Fairy, who went to the dark side about the time I left home and started buying my own household supplies—though that’s probably just a coincidence.

Even you “called” posts are funny. I hope you feel better soon.
I haven’t heard from you, lately—how are you doing?
Snow??? It’s not supposed to snow until Halloween. Everyone knows that! I’d probably go out in my sandals by mistake.
It can wait until next summer, as far as I’m concerned.
Or at least until I can get those buttons attached!
Re-watch? I haven’t even gotten the initial watch. My husband laughed at my choice of head-wear this morning (koala bear with ear flaps & pom-poms for ears), but my head was warm.
I’ve been waiting for the laundry fairy and the toilet cleaning fairy for ever.
You’ll love it, Dee! It’s amazing!
I want that hat. And the laundry fairy.
Snow in October?
You know, maybe this UK climate isn’t so bad after all.
Do you get snow? Because if not, I’m moving. Y’all need librarians, right?
If the button fairy stops by, please send her up north here as we’re hanging on by a thread.
And if she’s in cohoots with the all-left-gloves fairy, let her know that all will be forgiven if I find the stash of right ones next to the repaired buttons.
If you give me half your left gloves, I’ll give you half of our right ones. 😀
Oh, that Lucy face. I miss the Peanuts.
Feel better, chickadee.
Is it snowing on her? It’s supposed to be a gif, but it only seems to work in my post window . . .
It snows if I click her, but not in the thumbnail.
Oh, well . . .
I just love the way you post about not posting. Your blogging dedication fascinates me.
Isn’t it weird how obsessive habit kind of looks like dedication? 😉
