Burnt Popcorn

Burnt PopcornThere are few things that will cause people in the office to hunt you down like the smell of burnt popcorn. Make that mistake and nobody will miss it. People will hunt you down from the ends of the earth to crack jokes, give you knowing looks and let you know that you're stinking up the place. That smell lingers like nothing else. Even now, hours later, sitting in my living room, the smell lingers in my nostrils and I dread going to work tomorrow because I know that odor will still be there - clinging to everything. I think they may need to fumigate.

I'm still working on my Bloomin Feet socks and I hope to have bloggable progress to share soon. I think I'll feel much better if I can finish something - even one sock. In a weird way, finishing this sock may help me keep the startitis at bay. Does that make sense? Measurable progress is just such an encouraging thing.

I totally see where the startitis may be placated by the finishing of a sock. It is so funny that the urge to start things is strongest when there are so many other things to finish, but it works that way for me often.

It never failed in school that within a minute of taking popcorn out of the microwave a woodworking student would wander over to the clay studio to 'visit' me. Every freaking time. Come to think about it any type of food would attract a woodworker, popcorn was just the fastest.

A guy here did the burnt popcorn thing, and it was terrible. However, it kept most of us from wanting to eat anything at all, so that's a good thing, right?
