i’m bored at work and feeling a multitude of discomforts as we speak. mostly hunger because i only had strawberry/pb and choco froyo for lunch three hours ago. also annoying contacts stuck inside my eyes because it’s the first time i’ve worn any in five years. my face is vulnerable now 😦 my eyes feel smaller without lenses magnifying them and there’s skin around my eyes that aren’t used to being so naked. the job’s nice, at least i can sit here and do this instead of banging around booster chairs and transporting fortune cookies from can to can.

pinching between eyes
petting one’s beard (more gender specific)
clutching one’s chin
ew and the ad on this site has been for nick and norah’s infinite playlist and i offer deep (but fruitless) apologies for that
