I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel….

July 22, 2006

Ahh… Saturday night. Sitting in front of the tv watching “You’ve Got Mail”. Too tired to do absolutely anything at all. Livin the dream I tell you.

I would feel pathetic for sitting here by myself on Saturday night, but it’s honestly all I can be bothered to do. I came home from work this morning and for some reason couldn’t go to sleep. I lay in bed, listening to the neighbors downstairs, listening to the noises of daytime, thinking about all the things I needed to get done, and combatting those thoughts will all the usual sleep inducing thoughts. I even tried earplugs. Oh well. Ended up having lunch with Jamie. Then headed over to my parents’ house to pick the veggies in their garden because they’re all out of town.

It’s funny how smells are so strongly attached to memories. As I stood in their garden picking cherry tomatoes, green beans, okra, and squash, it took me back to my growing up years. Off and on throughout my childhood, we had a garden. Cherry tomatoes are some of my favorite foods. I love the way tomato plants smell. I love picking them off the plants and putting them straight in my mouth. Sometimes we would have tomato fights. Gardens also represent a great thing about my parents. We sometimes grew gardens out of necessity but it showed me that they were willing to work hard. They taught us about them and we learned the joy of growing things and then being able to eat them. We learned about taking care of things. We learned how you have to commit to something for it to pay off. You can’t just plant a garden and leave it and expect it to turn out well. You have to pull the weeds, kill the bugs, get dirt under your nails…

Anyway… I love Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.

I should be finished with work for three days but I picked up a dayline tomorrow. I need the money. That’s what I have to keep telling myself cause right now, I really don’t feel like working tomorrow. Work this week was pretty good. The overnight was decent. Last night I saw so many people at work that I haven’t seen in a long time. It was fun. I was reminded how ridiculous pilots can be. I don’t think any pilots read this so I can say all the bad things I want. Hahaha… But I still love them. My other flight attendant I work with got mad again last night cause I was getting more attention from the rampers than he was. I’m like hello!!! You work in an industry dominated by straight male pilots and rampers. You are a gay male. Do the math honey!! It’s good times though. I could’ve done without the child that screamed the entire way from Cleveland to Atlanta yesterday but I guess it’s all in a day’s work.

I think it’s time for this day to wind down. Hasta la pjs.

PS. I didn’t really hurt myself today to see if I still feel. I just had to use that subject before someone else I know does :-P. Cause I’m evil like that. Mwahahaha
