But I'm a creature of habit!

Leo Horoscope for week of October 8, 2009

Leo (July 23-August 22)
Change your password. Take a different way home. Ask a question you've never asked. Dream up a new nickname for yourself. Choose a new lucky number. Change the way you tell the story about an important event in your past. Make it a little more difficult for people to have you pegged. Eat a type of food you've never tried. Do the research necessary to discover why one of your opinions may be wrong. Add a new step to your grooming ritual. Feel appreciation for a person whose charms you've become numb to. Surprise yourself at least once a day.

This morning I was dreaming of a bath and bodyworks scent of lotion that was themed to a particular group of vampires from Vampire: The Masquerade, followed by a dream of a company that rents out birds for various tasks including publicity and amusement. As I dreamt of a green lorikeet rolling comically down a ramp Andy woke me up and said he was headed to work.

And I realized I had lab meeting on campus in 15 minutes. YIKES!

I had to throw my cultivated wake-up routine out the window. Usually I putter over to the kitchen, turn on the stovetop, start the coffee brewing, then cook some bacon and use a bit of the bacon fat for frying an egg. After the egg is flipped once I put the toast in the toaster, and by the time the toast is done the egg is done. I take my breakfast in the living room while staring at either Food Network, HGTV, or the Travel channel. Then I go pick out what to wear, and brush my teeth and put on my makeup. Then it's time to go catch the bus. . .

But today that all got bypassed, and I'm a little disoriented not to have that order early in the morning. Strangely, though, typing it out has helped :)

So instead of an ordered, slow waking up process I basically threw on clothes, and ran out the door, and ended up having a diet Dr. Pepper and a donut for breakfast. I didn't realize how much I depended on my morning routine!
