I didn’t write anything yesterday, which is bad because I’m trying to get into the habit of writing a little something every day, even if it’s not posted here. I’m not beating myself up over it, though, because I spent most of yesterday familiarizing myself with new software to create a logo for this page, and considering I haven’t used any graphic design software probably almost 10 years, I’m very pleased with how it all went.
See? I made this. After I finished up, I kept staring at it and having weird mixed feelings. There was a level of vanity I wasn’t comfortable with since it was a picture of my own face and I’d already been staring at it all day. But also, I’m just really pleased with how well it turned out (also, if anyone is looking for something like Adobe Illustrator but without the price tag, I used Inkscape, which was free.
I also went grocery shopping and snapped a picture that I already shared to Facebook, but I’m putting it here too because I can.
It’s corn-flavored corn. Like someone was eating some plain popcorn and said, “I just really wish this tasted more like corn. Can we add some corn flavoring?”
It did not come home with me. I love nonsense, but that’s too much.
Speaking of nonsense, I have a new coworker today. He’s pretty shy, though, so I had to only take sneaky pictures of him, and when my watch told me I had to get up and walk around because I’d been sitting on my butt for the whole hour, he ran and hid.
Sorry none of the pictures are very good. If I get too close he launches himself off the chair with reckless abandon, and HR already warned me that he has a medical condition in which parts of his body fall off if he gets too upset. On the plus side, I think maybe he wants to eat these little ants that are making their way up my chair, so I’m going to head inside and let him get to work before I get literal ants in my pants. Stay cool!
Ants in the pants would be bad! As would a lizard!
