These are some random ITEM!s, for sure
ITEM!: So now I’ve got all this awesome new responsibility at work (not really a lot), but I still have to wait for other people to get me the stuff I need to get it all done. Such is the way, really, of everything editorial, no matter the magazine. But when you don’t really have anything else to do while you’re waiting, it just makes the wait that much more painful. I could, literally, sit here and bug people every 10 minutes, but I don’t even like me that much. I wouldn’t wish that kind of persistence on anyone’s email inbox.
ITEM!: I’ve been taking the antibiotics for five days, and I’m not feeling loads better yet. Every morning is a little bit better, I guess, but there’s been no obvious, marked improvement. I was able to sleep without NyQuil last night, mainly out of necessity because I was out of it, but I feel like just the fact that I actually did sleep without it is somewhat of a better state of things. But still, I’m not totally better yet, and that’s getting super, super frustrating. I hate, hate, hate that my nose is still stuffy … though I don’t have to blow it regularly throughout the day. Like I said, I’m getting bit-by-bit better, upon reflection, but I still haven’t had that morning where I wake up all, “Yes! I’m feeling good today!” And that’s what I want.
ITEM!: I’ve discovered that on my computer at work, I prefer a dark blue-style desktop image. And it’s like, an obvious preference to me. I played around with a few different backgrounds this morning, and discovered that when the photo image is anything but dark blue-based, my eyes would squint and I’d have to physically move back from the screen. Like, bright green leaves or pink flowers? Too bright for me. Mountain vistas or animals? Too much activity in the photo. I had a gorgeous dark photo of the Milky Way back there, but changed it to a dark-blue Hawaiian print this morning, you know, because spring. This weird preference doesn’t afflict me on my computer at home, which has a picture of Oliver on it, so that’s the only reason why I mention it here. Work-computer bias, obviously.
