I can’t (won’t) partake in today’s overshare-fest because, well, a lot of reasons. But I think you are all awesome. Really. Just to prove it, I’ll go ahead and let you know that I have a killer lady-bits situation going on that has required not only a mid-day trip to the Urgent Care clinic yesterday, but also a prescription 3x as strong as the normal dose today. At...

Today is shaping up to be a pretty bad hump day.
Hope your Wednesday is better than mine.
Let's play Dream Plate.
My sister and I invented a game this past weekend. It’s called Dream Plate. And it’s not really a game. Or an invention. You just talk about what you want to eat right now. You can pick as many things as you want because the dream plate is infinitely big.
After one too many please-gag-me posts on News Feed this weekend, I’m going to take one step closer to freedom from Facebook. I want to increase my (already private) privacy settings and do some massive “friend” slashing, but I’m still going to keep my account. You know, for emergency stalking purposes. Does anyone know how I delete my entire wall up to this point (both...
I could probably dedicate an entire blog to the behavior of Southwest passengers attempting to get in those god forsaken boarding lines. My first entry would be about the freaks who are stuck in kindergarten and need to be at their EXACT numbered position in line. They are a different breed of people altogether.
Starbucks, mani/pedis, beers at the pool on the...
It would be okay to do this daily.
Two inappropriate bus activities:
(I have written about both before.) Listening to music on your phone OUT LOUD on speaker aka without headphones. ??? Eating McDonald’s. ???
The best kind of flights
are the ones that take me to my sister! Happy long weekending, kids.
An email from my grandfather:
“zoe i’mlooking forward to seeing you. As youknow i.m alittle under the weather, but we.ll have a good time together. love beba” All smushed together in one line, just like this. How cute are these kind of emails? ps: “a little under the weather” = he just got home after THREE WEEKS in the hospital. Can’t wait to see him!
Pooping at work.
It’s awkward. For all parties involved. Why do stalls still exist?
You know you are a loser when
you’re watching an episode of Triple D that you have seen at least 3 times before.
My sister just DEACTIVATED her Facebook account.
I may need to follow suit?
IT'S ALMOST LUNCH TIME
(highlight of the day, obviously)
Just for today Do not get angry Do not worry Be thankful Work hard Be kind...– Five Rules of Life (Mikao Usui via Swanfeather Songs)
my friend Jill at work told me Zantac (not to be confused with Xanax) is a miracle hangover cure. Have we heard this, Tumblr? True? False?
Moments that make me laugh out loud:
When I’m in 7-eleven buying a soda and a big woman marches in, straight up to the hot dog roller-thingy and yells at the top of her voice, across the entire store, without even pausing to look around for a full second: WHERE DA BUNS? YA’LL AIN’T GOT NO BUNS? HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO EAT A HOT DOG WITHOUT A BUN?!
Today felt like summer:
-crepes outside in the sun at noon -shopping on Walnut St. (cardigans and work tops, new jean shorts, 2 necklaces from Banana, a scarf, and other things I probably definitely didn’t need) -a nap (2 hours! mmm) -a run -huge salad & beers, followed by gelato, all outside -amazing people watching (the best was the 3 year old girl getting gelato with her dad and baby brother. inside...
Positive things about Chris travelling:
I can turn on the air conditioning as high as I want and be freezing cold and sleep diagonally in the bed. YES.
Normal people don’t go out to lunch on a workday (or ever) and eat as much as I just did.
5 Things I Assumed I’d Have A Year After... →
whiskeybentandhellbound: (Or two, as it may be) 1. Fancy food in the fridge. I used to think that around this stage, I’d be cooking for reals — dog-tagging pages in hard-cover recipe books, tossing fresh herbs around, owning a cheese grater, things like that. As it turns out, I do three things and three things only at my local Trader Joe’s: rob them of their frozen food supply, spend 20 minutes...
Food is what makes office life bearable.
I need a snack drawer in my office.
Today I will:
Sit up straighter. Be thankful I am employed. Remember to smile. Do my laundry. Get some vitamin D.
Cookie cake is cooking.
I’m (expletive deleted) starving.– Celebrity chef Mario Batali • Discussing the diet he’s currently on — he’s eating like he’s on food stamps (an average of $1.48 per meal, or $31 per week) in protest of potential cuts to the federal food stamps program. His family was nice enough to join him in what he calls a conversation starter...
Updates and other miscellany
Today, Chris got an offer for a summer job IN PITTSBURGH doing exactly what he wanted to do. He gets major kudos for only having a few minor “I hate everyone”/ “I’m going to drink so much tequila that I almost die” moments during the first year of business school when all that anyone talked about was what their summer job was going to be, starting in...
Just booked my flight for the Cape in August!
Bring on the sun, sand, family time, wine, puzzles and Four Seas.
