Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me on a Rumpled Monday?

Happy Monday! Everything is weird. The cleaning people are here, but it’s only one person instead of two like I’ve had before, which means it will take twice as long and also I feel weird not interacting, versus when it was two chipper people talking to each other. My co-worker was supposed to come over for training and canceled at the last minute. And there are supposed to be thunderstorms this afternoon, but right now there isn’t a cloud in the sky. It’s all strange and I don’t like it.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me as I Enjoy a Day Off?

Happy Monday! I love 3 day weekends. I never seem to have enough time to do everything I want to do on 2 day weekends. Of course, that’s because my to-do list is always a 3rd again too long. If I had 3 day weekends all the time, I would get used to it and then my to-do list would expand and I would be right back in the same place. Anyway, I’m over half done making fence panels and I invited friends over to help me install them, I’m gonna hang my curtain rod today, I killed all the Hastas in the front yard (DEATH TO HASTAS!!!), and I finished reading Anne of the Island and did the watchalong with y’all.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Monday After a Busy Weekend?

Happy Monday!!! I did so much this weekend! I finished my thousand piece jigsaw puzzle, most importantly. And I also dropped off a birthday present, got a massage, got a pedicure, made dinner for my parents, did two loads of recycling, organized the massive number of fence posts I need to assemble, and read the instructions for a lavender-in-a-jar planting project. And now I am at work, being all unproductive.

Happy Valentine’s Day! You know how there’s also “Galentines Day” from Parks and Rec? When you spend Feb 13th celebrating the wonderful platonic women in your life?

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me on a Bleak Monday?

Happy (?) Monday! As long time readers know, I really really struggle with SAD (seasonal affective disorder). Right now, daylight savings hasn’t ended so I am waking up in the dark, and in Chicago it’s been overcast for two days now and looking to stay that way. So I am BLEAK. Better since coffee and vitamin D pill and walking the dog, but still pretty bleak. Ask me happy things!

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me on My Sister’s Birthday???

Happy Monday! Yesterday was my Mom’s birthday and we did a river tour of the city and then dinner in the cool little cocktail bar across from their new condo. And today is my sister’s birthday and, as usual, she will be doing whatever the little toddler dictator orders her to do (“Mommy UP! Mommy, CAH! Mommy STROLLER! Mommy More Milk!”).

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me On Ayushmann Khurrana’s Birthday?

Happy Monday! I got my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the year this morning. I’m back at my parents and there is a drive through Starbucks a couple blocks away from them, so when I woke up early this morning, I thought “I’m gonna walk the dog over to my car and drive to Starbucks and treat myself”. The Starbucks lady said my dog was cute, so it was an all around successful adventure.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Week Sadak 2 Comes Out?

Happy Monday! I am grumpy and discombobulated today, so I am treating myself to delivery coffee, oooo! Which took like an hour to figure out how to do, apparently none of the coffee places near me are open on Mondays. Why???? Surely Monday, of all days, is the most Coffee-y!

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Day I Was Published on ArmchairJournal.com?

Happy Monday! One of the lovely commentators here linked me up with a website where she is doing an internship, and they gave me a chance to write an article. And in return, of course I promised to promote the article/them on my own sites (so, here, since I do nothing else on The Internet). Here you go, https://armchairjournal.com/could-covid-save-the-single-screen-theater/

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me on Raksha Bandhan and the Day Before Kishore Kumar’s Birthday?

Happy Monday! I had a terrible horrible no good migraine most of the day yesterday (thus my poor response rate on comments). I’m still feeling slightly headachey, but better, just in time to go to work. Why do you get sick on weekends? Why is the universe so cruel?
