I'm doing positive thinking today (it started at 8am with, "This Powerade will erase my hangover in time for marching practice*") so I have made a little list of Things I Like. However, I fell momentarily off the positive thinking wagon halfway through and so this post contains another disturbing Harry Potter picture. Consider yourself warned.
*Ha ha ha. It's Powerade, not a time machine. Incidentally, I think that if I had a time machine one of its primary uses would be popping back to the night before and not having that last tequila shot/bottle of wine.
Telling taxi drivers that my life is far more exciting than it actually is - does anyone else do this? Not whacking great lies, because if I was really Justin Bieber then I wouldn't be taking a taxi, but little exaggerations about my day in which my job is better, my holidays are overseas and my boyfriend is a ski instructor.
Crossword scratchies: are fun!
Cold and flu medication. It is magic. Science says it isn't but I think it is. There was going to be a picture of Harry Potter and a box of Codral but then Google distracted me with this and now I'm confused about everything. You should know that I resized this for you and it was originally worse.
Eminem - Eminem is awesome. He wouldn't be in a photo with nude Harry Potter, even though in this picture he's totally contemplating it.
Doing small good deeds: You know the ones - good deeds that require very little effort, like letting someone in in traffic provided you aren't in a hurry to get back to the office because you really need a wee. And then you feel better about the world, someone else is a little bit happier and also you are an amazing citizen who has now done their bit for the day and can go back to muttering under their breath about how ugly other people's children are. Selfish do-gooding is totally the best kind.
Enforced relaxation: I'm crap at relaxing. Fairly lazy, but crap at relaxing. I sit down with a book or a crossword or the Internet and 'relax', but in the back of my head there's always a voice reminding me that I should be doing something productive, like the dishes. But I love things like going to the hairdresser, because you sit there for an hour with a magazine and a cup of coffee and there's no way you could be doing something productive, so it's OK to do nothing. Enforced relaxation is the best thing ever.
Jared Leto. I like him but I really don't know why. Sorry. I know he's a wiener. This afternoon he tweeted 'ITS POMEGRANATE!' with a link to a picture of a pomegranate.
Pomegranate: now that I think about it, pomegranates are pretty delicious.
