I am really not sure what's up with Bassou - apart from not experiencing any signs that something's wrong, and it's perfectly alright and normal and other preggies have also not felt anything at this stage - but it'd be nice to feel *some* kind of activity. What is going on down there?
At least I'm not like poor ex-Kate Middleton or my colleague who was recently on bed rest. Recently though I've developed the annoying affliction of breathing heavily. On Monday I gave a presentation and I was short of breath the whole time. Not pleasant but I got through it.
Since we work in an open space everyone can hear everyone else's business. Sometimes it is actually OK. Today one colleague came by and started an uncomfortable but manageable conversation (he is known for this) and two of my co-workers turned friends in the next row over sent urgent emails and actually called so that they could save me. So sweet!
This is CFC season, where federal employees are voluntold to donate, and so we've been subject to a number of bake sales and similar fundraisers. Today there was a hot dog sale. Unfortunately they ran out of hot dog buns. How can people miscalculate a 1-1 ratio? Is it because hot dogs and buns are packaged in different quantities? Still.
Honestly, I will never be this cute again.
