Ok, so because I am a tad lazy and (much more than) a tad behind in other projects you get a different sort of Ruby Tuesday this time around.
Two subjects: things that I like to be red… and things I really really don’t want to be red.
My eyes: Bad when red. Which can be hard to avoid seeing how I look at spreadsheets (both on and off the computer) all day at work and my laptop most the time when I am not at work. Even the TV shows and movies I watch tend to viewed on my laptop… which makes for a lot of screen time.
Starbucks… always good. Holiday flavored Starbucks drinks/ Even better!
If (no really it should say ‘when’) these little lights turn red… sadness and cursing ensues. I pay for my internet. I love my internet. Don’t deny my of my internet or I will call you and complain loudly, oh so very loudly, until you fix my internet.
The toaster. To be specific, the toaster getting all red hot and making toast. I love toast. LOVE it and besides woman cannot live on mochas alone (much as I may want to….) And yes this photo is hopelessly blurry… but I actually like the way it looks so much that I decided that I wouldn’t bother to retake it. Sometimes blurry is pretty. Don’t mock.
Moles and other random discolorations on my skin. We all have them… and they need to stay whatever color they come in as… a change to red means bad bad news. In my case, one such mole turned red while I was in high school and just to be on the safe side they decided to remove it… and because I was a wuss who hates pain and couldn’t be counted on to hold still while they did this to me, I had to be held down… oh, the mole in question? On the back of my neck. Seriously… that sort of bizarre nightmare inducing trauma does not go quietly into the nigh, let me tell you.
Power light… I had to move my surge-protector-multiple-plug-in thingy up on top of my desk so I would quit kicking it by accident and turning everything off. Because that really really really gets annoying after say the forth time in a span of 45 minutes.
Candles: now hear me out… some candles are supposed to be red… and some are supposed to be white… and if you accidentally put them in the same zippy bag when you move and then forget to unpack them, well they share the red experience and end up looking kind of crappy.
Other things that shouldn’t share the red experience? Any and all of my white clothing. I have plenty of red clothing thank you very much… some things need to stay white.
Yay for Apple and things being under warranty so that when they break or get confused or think you are trying to be a hacker or something, they can get fixed for free!
There you have it.. a mix-n-match version of Ruby Tuesday! Now, back to the short story grindstone.
