Cottage Cheese with Pineapple Chunks

in Entertaining nonsense and profound thought

Do you ever have one of those days when you want to say something brilliant, make everyone laugh and feel better about themselves, but instead you feel slightly headachy, like someone hit you on the top of the head with a ball bean hammer? Also your brain is so tired that all you can think about is napping, but you’re at work and it’s not allowed, and some kid would take your picture with their phone and you’d be screwed for sure. And you thought your brain was okay when you first came to work, but you ate a muffin and how you’re wondering if you’re crashing because of the muffin or just because it’s friday and you finished revisions on Wednesday.

I’m having that day today.

And then you hate the way your computer touch pad is too sensitive, and why’d they change it so it does stuff you don’t want it to when you run your finger across it, or rest your wrists on it because you’re lazy. And of course there’s someone in the world that loves the way the new computers do all these neat things that just make you absolutely crazy, and they can’t understand why you threw your pencil across the room when all you wanted to do was correct spelling but you can’t get your cursor to go where you want it to be. And sometimes when you’re typing the page jumps around and you lose where you are.

I’m having that kind of day too.

I’d leave you with a quote from Red Dwarf, but 90 percent of all people have never heard of Red Dwarf and wouldn’t get the reference, and would think I’m off my rocker as well.

So I’ll just say: “If I could just have cottage cheese with pineapple chunks in I’d be ever so grateful.”* Which is better than saying: “Oh god, I’m totally screwed” which is how I feel. But I probably really just need to take a nap and I’ll feel better.

This maybe how I’m feeling today:


*Yes this is also a Red Dwarf quote. Chakansky. Can’t remember which season, but it was later because it was the new character in a different dimension.

I so get the touchpad-throw-the-pencil feeling. Love the image. Am googling Red Dwarf this minute.

I know Red Dwarf, but have never yet gotten around to watching it.

However my father likes cottage cheese with pineapple in it. Does that count?

Hope Sunday is bettah.

Please feel free to make all the Red Dwarf references you want to. I educated my gkids on Red Dwarf with a youtube on the talking toaster.

That picture! So much wrong with it but so much of a ME TOO feeling. I want one. Small-ish, so I can just hold it up in front of my face when people ask “how are you?” and I feel that way but can’t describe it adequately.

I need one of these too…

If it makes you feel any better I immediately thought of Red Dwarf when I read the post title. Hope your day gets better!


Kate September 22, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Oh yay! Someone else who knows Red Dwarf!

Awesome post!!! Sorry for the bad day – but the telling of it made me smile and nod.
Especially about the pencil throwing. Loved it!!
May things right themselves soon.

Wow, what a day you are having! Poor thing. I hope it gets better and the headache goes away!

I would get most of the Red Dwarf quotes but haven’t seen the Chakansky episodes more than once so I don’t get those. I know the first 3 episodes much better.

Gotta admit, cottage cheese with pineapple chunks is definitely not my idea of a good thing, so it would just add to a day like this!

Yes, this is the day I am having right now. I shouldn’t be this tired but I am, it’s stress and I know it but I haven’t figured out how to deal with it because I feel so tired. It’s a vicious circle. I hope you get your equivalent of the cottage cheese with pineapple chunks today. 🙂

I raaather like this post. Mostly it’s the picture. But also because I’m feeling a little less like I’m about to fall asleep sitting up in my chair. Which I did on Wednesday, but at least I wasn’t at work when I did it.
