So, I have this thing where I can't just...
For the last few years I’ve experienced a sort of 5k curse. I’ll miss the start, while standing 200 yards away from it. I’ll show up late and get accused of banditing. The race course will have mile markers are set up sporadically and backwards. And today? Today I ran in the opposite direction for a good 200 yards before someone told me I was going the wrong way. Somehow I...
I went to Panera with my work friend. There’s a possibility that she won’t be leaving and I’m so excited! Wine. All the wine. It’s happening. Tomorrow I’m running a 5k for colon cancer. This means I’m officially still on track with my “one timed race a month” goal. I missed yoga tonight, which is le sad, however I went to a class on Tuesday and...
Happy Birthday Mama!
For my mom’s 50th birthday I made her a rice krispy cake. Since no woman wants a big 5-0 on a cake, I decided to make her 25 (x2) Happiest of happy birthdays to my amazing mom!
Sometimes I need a drink to be a nice person. Cheater mojitos>real mojitos. Refrigerated pizza dough can not be reshaped. Also, I’m bad at pizza making. At work I can log in to facebook, twitter, pinterest and wordpress, but not tumblr. Such injustice.
I may have used too much mousse in my hair.

I Finally Uploaded Honeymoon Pictures
We got married in June 2010. 2 years it took me.
What You Missed
I went to a laser hair removal appointment where my laser-lady upped the zap level without telling me ahead of time. I actually jumped out of the chair. I made really good meatballs. Zach got in a car accident when some dude ran a stop sign, totaled his car. He’s fine, just some bruising. 6 hours at the ER confirmed that. I believe the 5th ring of hell is a ER waiting room in an unsavory...
shanapreferspajamas asked: I miss you. Where have you been? Come back.
My brothers all make me laugh and give me hugs where my feet come off the ground. They’re pretty great.
We found out some information at work today that doesn’t directly impact me but makes me really, really sad. Then we had a lunch meeting and had to not talk about it.

Let’s say you have an English degree, a MBA, and an employer with a generous contribution to continuing education. What do you study? Know of any outstanding part time programs?
I can cook/procure literally anything I want this week since my husband, Mr. “You Eat Too Many Foods Without Crunchiness,” is out of town and I have absolutely no desire for anything.

ohverucasalt: A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE … enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her own, even if she never wants to or needs to… something perfect to wear if the employer, or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour… A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .. a youth… So good.
Today was A DAY folks. So I went grocery shopping. Tonight we had chicken kiev, cheesy rice, and broccoli. I had two mojitos. I’m a bit tipsy. I’m so glad tomorrow is Friday.
When I'm Old Wednesday
When I’m old I will wear: embroidered sweatshirts and matching sweatpants keds sequins and fringe as much as possible Red Door (comes standard in the Senior Citizen Survival Kit) elastic waistbands huge clip on earrings bright pink lipstick, mostly on my teeth satin night gowns and robes (ok, so I do this now, but I don’t plan to stop) babushkas, one for wet weather and one...
Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman...– distractedbyshinyobjects re: feministing - for women, heart attacks look different (via alexandra-ewing)
Being a grown up means you can swing by the Dairy Queen on your way home from to buy surprise “It’s the Oreo’s 100th Birthday” oreo blizzards for you and your husband totally guilt free. Ice cream for dinner? Check. Though, admittedly, I did this growing up too. Plus my parents subscribed to the Cosby school of baked goods=milk+eggs+flour so rice krispy treats, cake,...
Things I Don't Care About
Gas prices. When my tank is empty I fill it. End of story. Cupcakes. Why with all cupcake recipes pinterest? Why? Parties where I’m urged to buy things. If your party has catalog involved it ceases to be a party and now is a strange social event where I feel all obligated to buy shit I don’t need. Any television show where people sing or try to find a mate Like, really? This is...
shanamaideleh: emilyposts: When I have a baby, I was someone to throw me a shower where every guest is asked to bring their favorite childhood book. Someone write that down. Write it down for me too, please. This has been my plan for years.
It was 30 degrees today
I wish I was back on a Bahamian beach.
My husband has a cold
He woke me up this morning at 4am with all his wheezing. I almost smothered him with the pillow.
nyclust: buildingaladder: SMILE! PET PEEVE. I also think it’s sexist. You don’t ever see a man telling another man (especially a subordinate) to “SMILE!!!” YES.
Things That Happened Since Monday
I recovered got sick recovered got sick and I’m now *hopefully* on the up and up. This mojito will help. I spent a ton of time on the couch, watching tv and playing Trivial Pursuit. I read a book at work. It was about a newlywed who loses her husband in a car accident when they’re on their way to dinner. Towards the end she finds out he fathered a child with his ex-girlfriend before...
