STOP STARTING SENTENCES WITH "I MEAN"

November, 2022

Today is one of the rare days when it's 85 degrees in the office and I'm not dressed for it.

When people say "as to"

Actually, not everyone wants to be surrounded by people, thankyouverymuch.

I just realized I didn't eat breakfast today.

I can manage multiple tasks. But I can't manage multiple crises.

I was going through my closet two weekends ago and found a couple pairs of sandals I'd forgotten I had. They were a little old but seemed to still be in good condition. I wore one pair of them to work today, and by noon, the whole top of the sandal had come detached from the bottom. :-/

I lost a Bombas sock at the laundromat.

The way English people pronounce "chocolate"

Every time I include anyone else on an order from Jimmy John's, it ends up taking a couple hours to get here or the order gets "lost" entirely. Today's order is already starting out to be no exception to that.

When I placed my Jimmy John's delivery order, I got a warning that orders will be delayed because of inclement weather. There is no inclement weather today.

I ground a little bit of cardamom seeds in the mortar & pestle this morning to add to my coffee grounds before I made my morning brew, but apparently the mortar & pestle was recently used to grind rosemary, because my coffee has tasting notes of Thanksgiving dinner.
