Hello to you,
Were you beginning to wonder? I post a black and white photo of a ship tossed at sea, with a quote about not being afraid of storms, then nothing . . .
Seems so ominous.
It’s really nothing of the sort. I simply had to make-up for last week’s frivolity. I do believe I’m caught up . . . for the most part . . . for now.
That, coupled with the fact that it’s Friday, makes me positively giddy. ‘tis true—my mood calendar says as much.
You see, a few months ago, upon her return from vacation, a co-worker arrived bearing gifts: The Daily Mood. It’s a flip calendar—a mood emoticon on one side, a description on the other (including adjective, interesting tid-bits, synonym, antonym, anagram, and the word in Pig Latin . . . because these things are important).
Now, anytime you approach a member of the comm team, you can gauge her mental state, first.
Yesterday—being Thursday and a day that ended in drinks with friends—I opted for ‘Fabulous.’ After all, I’ve owned to scattered, spent, copacetic, borderline and bouncy, but never fabulous.
Speaking of which, according to the description: The term ‘fabulous’ has been so continuously overused by people trying to be ‘au courant’ that the meaning is not as strong as it once was. The word comes from the Latin, fabulosus or “celebrated in fable.”
I must admit, I feel a bit guilty throwing the word about willy-nilly. Yet I feel oddly inspired, as well. I mean really, celebrated in fable?
With that, I wish you a weekend that’s so good, it’s barely believable . . . astonishing . . . legendary, even. I wish you a weekend that’s fabulous, indeed.
