i’m currently super high on endorphins right now, but I’m about to get high on something else, if you know what I mean.
I had the Trader Joe’s Cajun Chicken Alfredo for lunch today, and it was amazing.
After letting it settle in my stomach a little bit, I took Lady with me and went to walk some of it off.
She is the best little sidekick.
My morning started off really right today even though I had to make some slight adjustments to my morning routine. I am back on intermittent fasting, so I made really good food to break my fast, and now I’m sitting at my laptop with a cup of coffee, and I’m ready to take on the day before 9am.
How you doin’?
I managed to finish my column, so please clap because with everything going on right now, it was an extreme battle with my ADHD.
Today is the most unproductive day ever; I swear.
Fade in the Water aka ROLL(ed up in the) TIDE aka The Alabama Sweet Tea Party aka the Montgomery Massacre aka the Riverboat Rumble has jacked my attention since yesterday. So many memes. So many jokes. So much collective Black joy.
I don’t feel like doing shit today, so I’m not. I ordered pizza. I’m going to sit here, watch “And Just Like That,” and set up my bullet journal for next month.
I’m testing the way wordpress shares my posts to Instagram.
We live in the real life version of “Sick Sad World.”
I feel ready to get back to life right now.
Are you there, menopause? It’s me, Monique.
I love the way my fingertips feel on my laptop keyboard when my nails are still short from a fresh manicure.
It’s hard to explain, but it’s one of the best feelings to me.
I love keeping my fingernails pretty, shapely, and short. It works best for me.
I woke up extra early this morning because I had to be on camera for an interview with people on the east coast for a story I’m working on for Andscape.
Baby, it’s 9:20 a.m., and I already need a nap.
At least I work from home and didn’t have to go into an office or anything.
Wordle 724 4/6
I start each day with a quad shot of espresso over light ice in a venti cup with cold foam on top. I change the cold foam flavor each day for a little variety, but mainly I get the cinnamon caramel or the white chocolate macadamia nut one. I used to always get vanilla, but it’s not as tasty.
My day cannot start until I have caffeine.
It’s just the way it is.
About to get started writing for the day.
I’m starting to question my grammar and punctuation use. It’s time to reread Elements of Style.
I just paused the program I am watching right now so I could listen to Lady snore.
I love my little baby so much.
Transcribing is the worst part of interviewing people, I swear to god.
A quad shot of espresso over light ice in a venti cup with white chocolate macadamia nut cold foam all the way to the top.
My daily drink is always some variation of this. The only thing that changes is the flavor of cold foam.
I took a long, hot shower, smoked a joint, did my body oil, and I’m about to put on some clean pajamas and climb into my fresh sheets because I have had enough adulting for the day.
I took Lady to the groomer for a bath and a haircut, and now she is walking around here like a brand new bitch.
My article about Citi Bike Karen, aka Sarah Jane Comrie, is the No. 1 Google result for her name.
Search Engine Optimization is beating her ass.
Lady always tries to turn my middle of the night bathroom trips into a petting session.
She’s like “Hey, I’m awake, and you are awake, so why not rub my belly for a little bit?”
I wrote an op-ed comparing Sarah Jane Comrie to Carolyn Bryant.
It will be live in the morning.
