Hi there! Good morning!! Hello!!! Welcome to Wednesday!
*amb pauses for breath, looks around* It is Wednesday, right? I haven’t missed it? Whew. Okay. Excellent. Just checking. Carry on then.
That blur that you saw go rushing by when you opened this post? Yes, well – that would be me. Remember how I was kvetching about being sick earlier in the week? Never mind. Scratch that. There’s no time!
Monday was prepping for an upcoming product launch in Corporate World, last night was dinner and round two of wedding dress shopping with Deb and the bridesmaids, and tonight is a cocktail party for my fellow volunteers with the National Ballet of Canada at Paper Things. And since I’m the Social Chair (I know, I know, it’s shocking and completely out of character for me) I have to arrive early and stay late and just generally give off the air of someone who is organized and polished and put together and can appear to make it to the midway point in the week without having her hamsters run completely off their wheels.
Is it any wonder that today’s word is absolutely, 100% genuinely made up?
And the best part is, it’s not even made up by me. Today’s word is courtesy of my favourite Finn (he’s also the only Finn I know, but that’s not the point) who came up with this one without even knowing about the state of my hamsters.
Today’s word is spectaculacles: spectacular spectacles; eyewear that lends a certain kind of indefinable cool to the wearer, making them appear chic and sophisticated and undeniably organized regardless of how many late nights they’ve had lately, or how many appetizers they’ve promised to bring to a cocktail party.
In other words …
I really think I need to borrow Audrey’s spectaculacles to make it through today, you guys.
Meanwhile, tomorrow we’ve got a brand new My Favourite Television Show You’ve Never Heard Of to talk about … provided that I can make it home and remember where I put my tv, that is. Have a great Wednesday everyone!
