Friday! Friday! Friday! Friday! Woo hooooo!
I admit to being a person who makes quick judgments. I sometimes judge books by their cover only to find out I was so wrong! I saw a group of people walking down Hidalgo last May with these gigantic miniature beer keg thermal cups and thought -- how tacky! I think I made a crack something to the effect that they could tie them around their necks and they'd look like St. Bernard's? Okay -- I can be such a silly snob!
When I started working, I went looking for a covered thermal beverage container since that's the only thing allowed in the computer rooms. Everywhere I looked, I saw a sea of Big Bubba's! Here's my Bubba! Not quite as hefty as the large beer keg variety I saw cruising down Hidalgo.
The other day, mine fell over on the table. There was a collective gasp up and down the row. But no spill! Bubba did the job! I suppose I could load it with any beverage of my choice and no one at work would really notice. Well, maybe the fumes might drift around, and I could end up acting like Whacko Girl!
Here's one other tip that I haven't had time to purchase. The woman next to me uses a peppermint oil she purchased at Whole Foods (Whole Paycheck) to fight off drowsiness. She's letting me whiff hers until I can find my own little navy blue bottle of it. It REALLY works. It's an immediate wake-up call, and I've noticed my mind's clearer and I work like a little hamster on the wheel for about a half hour after I inhale. I guess it's a form of huffing! : ) I checked the natural remedy section of another natural foods store on the way home last night, but they didn't have it. So I'll find some over the weekend. Even if I'm not working after next week, it'd be great for those times when you need to get stuff done and you're dragging. Or when you're traveling and miserably tired!
Woo hoooooo! It's the weekend!
