I was just going to go to Claire's but they seem to have a terrible reputation so I am going to a tattoo/piercing joint nearby that seems to have a great reputation.
Natter 77: I miss my friends. I miss my enemies. I miss the people I talked to every day.
Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, butt kicking, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.
Oh god, yeah, definitely go to a place that specializes in piercings. Claire's (or anything similar) is awful.
Yes somewhere that uses a needle rather than a gun!!
The tattoo place I took my mom to for her extra ear piercings was great, highly recommend that approach. Mom was a little dubious before we went, but they were super nice
My 9 am meeting got canceled which was a relief and I checked my email early in hopes that it would be so I didn't start early (not that 9 am is an early start, but I have a standing 11am meeting that typically takes me all morning to prepare for so I would have needed extra time if I was in another meeting before it). It got cancelled because a coworker has COVID, which is a bummer, but I was still relieved to not have to start work early.
not that 9 am is an early start,
YES IT IS!!! Normalize other cicadian cycles and allow late starts and late finishes. This concept that "early" means productive is a fallacy and counterproductive for night owls.
Ha, I meant not early for me, my normal day starts at 8:30 am. Just trying to clarify that the meeting wasn't scheduled outside my normal working hours but it would have required my usual work to be done earlier. But it was cancelled, so none of that had to happen!
Another Monday. Well, Spring is approaching, the no-longer surprise hyacinths are blooming, as are the cherry blossoms.

Thanks for that, Consuela! It joins “is the mountain out” as important yes/no questions to answer.
I could not get my shit together today—even though I thought I slept fine I was a wreck all day, yawning and unable to focus. Got lots to do tomorrow and starting early, so hoping I can get over that!! Wondering if it’s a side effect of the new drugs or possibly my body saying “eat more food dumb dumb”
My mental checklist today:
Pharma (pick up meds)
Piggies (they need kibble, also cage cleaning)
Mail (need to send something out Priority)
At 3pm I have to get "clean margins" on the spot where the dermatologist cut out the melanoma on my shoulder. Whee!
