On her blog, Sara shared that today her token animal for today is the polar bear. Intrigued, I looked up my own. I got the Moose. Here’s what it says:
“Moose represents incredible strength and longevity, as well as the ability to see the future. Moose antlers are among the largest of the antlered animals, and are like psychic antennae—giving Moose amazingly developed hearing, smell, and depth perception. Moose is bellowing at you to open your third eye and stop pretending that you don’t know what’s about to happen.”
So, when I went on wordpress.com today to see if the blog name “NoteToSelf” was taken, I should have known that it would be and then, when it was, because that’s such a good blog name it would be impossible that no one had taken it yet, I shouldn’t have been so disappointed, having seen that coming, but no. I was still bummed. To make matters worse, it isn’t even being used. Oh, the injustice of it all! I’m totally contemplating commenting or writing to the blog name hogger who has NoteToSelf.wordpress.com and asking them to please give up the name, because someone wants it and you’re just not using it. And yes, I checked note2self and someone has that too, damitall.
My final, much lamer, solution is to start a new category here, called Note To Self. I might just do this, as I am quite despondent about the chances of those thoughts ever being posted on their own special place. Nonetheless, virtual post-its to your future self can be handy and lack of a special place shouldn’t stop me from reminding myself of the things I should–or should not–do again. Like these:
Note to self…
…don’t make more soup than you can eat in 3 days. Even when you defrost it 3 months later you will still be sick of it.
…you do not look good in capris.
…don’t call mother every day on your way to work. You’re interrupting her Suduko but she’s too nice to say so and get off the phone which is what she really wants.
…stand up straight!
…don’t get bangs again, no matter how much T complains about your too-large forehead, because they require more effort and maintenance than you have to give.
