    This wasn't today but a while ago. I jokingly asked somebody who speaks Spanish
    "How do you taco in Mexican?"
    and they looked at me funny.

    I already lost my mom's spare pair of sunglasses when I just got them from her yesterday as were leaving for our vacation.

    I had an especially chewy lunch today: beef jerky and gummi worms.

    My jaw is cramped something awful. :(

    I ever so stupidly thought that I could trim a Shih Tzu's nails on my own, but I was wrong! After I trimmed one nail, he started chewing on my hand that could've easily been a serious bite. A mistake like that will get me fired instantly. I don't know why I thought I could do it on my own. I knew better than that! Also, I thought my animal restraint technique was on point, but it's been rusty the past couple days! What is wrong with me?

    You're way too hard on yourself. Everyone makes mistakes, you shouldn't beat yourself up every time you make one. Surely your boss/bosses understand that your only human, if they don't then maybe you shouldn't be working there in the first place.

    Sounds to me like you're letting your mistakes get to you, and focusing on your past mistakes, which in turn is casing you to make more mistakes because you are so focused not making your previous mistakes again, if that even makes an ounce of sense.

    Remember, everyone makes mistakes. Even people who claim to be experts make mistakes and are always learning. Instead of treating each mistake like a bad thing, and that there is something wrong, treat is as learning something new!

    Messed up the settings on my computer underneath the taskbar.

    I actually registered a Twitter account today just for the sole purpose of following Kathy Greenwood since she's on Twitter now.

    Oh boy, did I do something stupid today. . . .

    So, with a majority of the country raging about "this is fake news," and "that is fake news," and what have you, I thought about how much Gary Gnu's saying of, "No g'news is good g'news," rings so true even today . . . so saying, I tried my hand a little political cartoon of both sides attacking the other for spreading "fake news" and how Gary remarks this is what he's been talking about for over thirty years.

    Now, I'm friends with Jim Martin on Facebook (he was suggested to me based on mutual friends suggestions), so I thought I'd share it with him, and . . . well, as it turns out, he's actually not the same Jim Martin at all, just another puppetry enthusiast who just happens to share the same name.

    I am so embarrassed I almost want to just go hide in shame.

    I got the Terminators confused. There are soooooo many of them that it's hard to keep track of them all, okay!? Out of all of the Terminators so far, this one is by far my favorite:

    Wow, that robot puppy looks almost like my dog except with glowing red eyes and an evil Satanic death stare. Other than that, it looks exactly like my sweet little dog who I love so much, :p.

    Don't feel bad, I kinda always assumed that was the real Jim Martin too until you said something. But, hey, it's always great to be connected with other puppet fans, we gotta support each other, so it's great that you're Facebook friends! I'm sure you're making a bigger deal out of it then he is. In fact, using the name of someone else, i'm sure he anticipated the occasional misunderstanding. There's no way we're the first to make this mistake. Don't beat yourself up.

    It's ironic, because there was a period of time when Facebook gave me a number of Muppet/Henson people as friend suggestions, including but not limited to John Kennedy, Tyler Bunch, even Tau Bennett . . . and Jim Martin. And again, these were all based on mutual friends, so I figured there wouldn't be any harm in send them friend requests (so far, I don't believe Tyler ever accepted mine, but that's okay, I don't know him personally, so it's no big deal).

    But years ago, I did some other Gary Gnu artwork and shared it on THE GREAT SPACE COASTER FB page that both Jim and his wife Crystal seemed to get a kick out of.

    Reset my computer which erased all of my bookmarks and settings.

    Wish I never did that.

    So, I dunno if you wanna call this "stupid", but I ended up using a cheat code for the final boss in BloodRayne, only because I feel like it's just way too luck-based along with the last 2 boss fights.

    Which disappoints me because it has such a great gameplay and story.

    I brushed my teeth without thinking that I wasn't finished with my drink.

    I did this yesterday. I ran over my foot with a shopping cart. I was wearing sandals at the time, and wouldn't you know it, it was the same foot I broke in 2011!

    I accidentally messed up a video that I uploaded to Archive.org, so now it’s going to have to get deleted.

    And I cannot delete it myself because a staff member on the site has to do it instead.
