i discovered the most nostalgic smell on the entire PLANET recently, when i opened a box of 64 count crayolas and took a big whiff. i found myself on aisle three at work, my nostrils shoved between colors, inhaling deeply with tears in my eyes and a giant lump in my throat. wow, that scent just brings back so much, from so many eras of my life. childhood and coloring, of course, my broken and peeled crayons rattling around in a leftover valentines day chocolate heart-shaped box, begging my mother to color with me because she colored so very pretty. when i was a teen, i had a wonderful tiny toons coloring book that i colored in every night, sequestered in my bedroom. i'm still sorry that i lost that coloring book somewhere in my travels around the u.s., though there wasn't many available spaces left to color in. i still have two boxes of 96 count crayolas around here somewhere, methinks. i'm quite certain they were one of the random things that made it with me on my move up here from phoenix. i just need to get some coloring books i like.
caffeine withdrawal is going good, if a bit shakey. the caffeine headache i woke up with today was a bit less than yesterday, and my cup of earl grey tea seemed to make it abate some, in comparison to yesterday where the throbbing existed until about 6 p.m.
so very much i need to accomplish, and so very difficult without gallons of caffeine to jack me up, though it's getting much better. once this ick is over with and i'm accustomed to not having it (i hear it takes two weeks to get out of your system completely?) i shall make another attempt to remove sugar and bread from my diet again. wow, it made me feel like a million bucks last year. i want that million back, thanks.
i love all the horrible horror flicks on with halloween around the corner. makes me really want to check out the hellraiser (hellrazor! ha!) movies again. gross.
just watched the first disc of the first season of teen titans. that raven's one dark chick - i love her that much more now.
