Freaky Monday

Sometimes, I'm sure that I've been body-snatched.

Today is one of those days.

First, I have spilled 4-containers of solution today. I NEVER spill solutions because a.) they smell, b.) they're a little toxic, and c.) they are a pain in the ass to make. Occasionally, I have bad days where my hands are shaky and my head is a little cloudy, and I will spill a container, but I never spill FOUR.

Second, I ate lunch today. I rarely crave lunch--usually I'm running around too quickly to even think about eating. Today, for some reason, I needed to eat. If that doesn't amaze you, here's the real kicker. I ran over to the campus store and bought sushi. I NEVER eat sushi. I find it disgusting and noxious and blah-gag-blah. For some reason though, I just had to have wasabi, ginger, and soy sauce, and the only sane way to eat these thing together is to have some sushi.

Third, I got everything crossed of my list. I NEVER get everything crossed off my list because my lists are over ambitious. I even had time to do some extra chores like labeling some slides for this week and organizing my brains so that I can pull samples more quickly when I need them. Weird.

Last, but definitely not least, I smiled at two complete strangers today. I try to smile at strangers randomly so people don't think I'm some crazy bitch (I would rather have them think I am just plain crazy), but I usually only pass on one smile every other day or so. I've smiled at two people on campus today, and it's not even 2 o'clock yet. Very weird.

Someone has taken over my body--my handwriting is even a little off today. The sad part is that my invader is apparently more efficient, better organized, and either nicer or more socially inclined than I am. The only thing that I have going for me is that I'm more coordinated, but maybe the solution spilling incidents were just my invader's way of pissing me off.

I guess I shouldn't complain. At least I got my list done for today.

Ummm,Ummm, I don't know about the spilling etc., but the sushi?...Could your beta-HCG be, ummm, elevated?

Sorry. None of my business.

No need to apologize--that was the first thing I thought when I started to salivate at the thought of popping california rolls;) As far as I can tell, a body-snatcher is a more probable cause than an increase in my beta-HCG. Still, a craving for sushi is really off-the-wall for me.

You science nerds! Couldn't you just ask her if she is knocked up?

I second Trisha's comment! Hilarious post, by the way. Hope the invaders continue to help you with your lists.

It seems he doesn't realize that it's OK to be forthright with me. It's probably scary for a man to ask someone if she is "knocked-up", especially when he doesn't know the potential baby's mama.

Or, he's just as dorky as me and likes to use nerd-speak.

Or, he was testing our knowledge...

I don't like to discriminate. I welcome all street-talk, nerd speak, and any other type of vernacular.

I love this post, too.

I have read it like seven times.

And I wish you were my neighbor. Or something. I secretly love you.

Okay, wait, that makes it sound like I want you to be my neighbor so I can stalk you and hide in your shrubbery and sneak into your house through a window and steal your handsoap.

So, it's accurate. Carry on.

You wouldn't be the first person to hide in our shrubbery...but that's for a whole other post.

At first, I laughed at the handsoap because it was very funny. Then, I got nervous that someone was going to steal my handsoap. I'm very particular about my handsoap, and I don't know what I would do if I got in the door from riding the bus and couldn't immediately wash my hands....deep breaths.

Thanks for liking my post (or just saying that you liked it--I'm not picky;)

I have no idea why "handsoap" even pooped into my head!
