I woke up with one eye allergy-swollen shut, and by the time Thor’s baseball game was over (they won!) I had been sneezing and coughing for 2 hours.  That, combined with my blazing cold sore and generic bloat rather limited my self confidence, and I elected not to go to the audition.  There is another slot tomorrow evening, so if I am feeling more like a human and less like The Elephant Man’s niece, I’ll hit that one.  If I am still a crusty, ragweed-riddled version of myself, I will just stay home and try not to frighten children.

Meanwhile, here I am on the sofa rubbing my eyes and whining.  I want a robot so I can send it out for ice cream.

As a reminder:

We’ve just hit 100 subscribers to The Outside Lane, so it’s time to celebrate!


The giveaways of Some of my Favorite Things will be done by random drawing on Tuesday, May 6.  You have until 11:59 pm, Monday, May 5 to get your name in the drawing as many times as you like.  To get in on the drawing do one, or all of the following as many times as you like:

  1. Leave a comment on ANY entry from the blog
  2. “Like” the Facebook page
  3. Leave a comment on the Facebook page
  4. Share the blog from your Facebook, Twitter, or Blog (and leave the link in a comment on TOL or the TOL Facebook page)

Don’t go nuts, though.  If you leave 50 comments saying the same thing, you’re only getting one entry.

When I have 2 winners, I’ll pick some of my favorite things to fit the person.  I’d hate to send a guy a bunch of face cream.
