Thoughts on a Thursday

Hey friends! Happy Friday-eve (and first day of October)!

Wait. Hold the phone and shut the front door.

IT’S ALREADY OCTOBER?! Wasn’t it just the beginning of June? I swear 2015 has flown by. Like, Harry Potter on his Nimbus 3000 fast. To my parents and grandparents who always warned me that as I got older, the years would just go by faster and faster (and my young and very naïve self never believed them, naturally), you were right. But have no fear! I think I’ve come up with a pretty solid plan to combat this super-sonic passing of time: I’m just going to stop aging, remain 28 forever. I’ll let you know how that works out.

But that’s not the only thing that I’ve been mulling around in the ‘ol noggin lately….

  1. This morning when I was at Starbucks getting some much needed caffeine and grub, I overheard a dude tell his dude bud that he didn’t like seeing women eat. Oh, I definitely understand, bro! I get totally grossed out when men sleep. Or breathe. Like, WHAATTTT?!!? As I walked past him, I tried to give him my best scone-stuffed face, evil side eye glare.
  2. My mom is the best at sending me pictures of my pup Thunder who is staying with both her and my dad until they come out here with him this Christmas. I got this gem from her two nights ago. Obvies they don’t spoil him at all. 🙂
"Okay, guys. I'm all tucked in and ready for my bedtime story. I'm feeling 'Goodnight Moon with a James Earl Jones voiceover tonight."

“Okay, guys. I’m all tucked in and ready for my bedtime story. I’m feeling ‘Goodnight Moon with a James Earl Jones voiceover tonight.”

3. Is there a limitation on when your fingers stop growing? I swear my digits have sprouted out at least an inch within the past couple of months. And you know what they say about girls with big fingers…they need big gloves.

4. I was guilt tripped into buying two tickets to a Horse Capades show in Denver in three weeks by a co-worker’s daughter yesterday. I have no idea what Horse Capades are, nor do I plan on going. But she was just so sweet and she brought up how much she loved Harry Potter and I couldn’t say no. If this was a preview for what it’s going to be like when I have little kiddos of my own, I’m in trouble.

5. Since it’s officially October, I’m not ashamed to admit that I will be watching Hocus Pocus on the repeat, all day, errr day. *Does anyone know yet if the rumors of a sequel are for realsies? Quit playing games with my heart, Bette.

6. Since it’s officially October (or a day ending in ‘y’), I’m also not ashamed to admit that I polished off a whole bag of Candy Corn within two days. And to all of you Candy Corn haters out there, a couple of things: YOU are crazy pants and can you send all of your CC to yours truly pleaseandthankyou.


7. I’ve got jury duty for the first time next Monday and I’m equal parts excited and annoyed. Excited because I get to live out my Olivia Benson fan-girl dreams (and they’re providing us with free lunch–I am ALL about that free food, much chagrin to Mr. Starbucks dude) and annoyed because if I do get called for a case, it could last for weeks (and I’ve got a wedding that weekend that I’m not missing! You hear me, Judge Judy. Not. Missing!)

8. Speaking of the wedding, it’s only a week and two days until I get to see one of my bestest friends marry her bestest friend and I am SOOOOOO excited! To share and be a part of her special day is such an honor (not to mention there will be cake! And dancing. And cake! And drinks. And cake! And love. And cake!)

QOTD: Candy Corn: Love or hate?

What’s your favorite part of weddings?


Thoughts on a Thursday

1. This weather lately, though! For a state that supposedly has 300 days of sunlight, it has been a real hot cool mess the past two weeks. Rain, hail, tornado warnings, and even the dreaded four letter “S” word (which shall not named) possible on Sunday!! It’s May, for umbrella’s sake! What is happening?! In all of this gloominess however, there was a brief moment yesterday where the sun peaked out of the clouds, creating the most beautiful rainbow. Life’s funny like that; when you least expect it–and sometimes when you need it most–it reminds you of how truly awesome it is.


2.  Posseums. With their hundreds of teeth and super long nails and beady eyes and all that hanging upside down. What’s up with that?

3. Ugh. On the way home last night from work (during the slight 2 minute reprieve of rain that we had), I was driving with the windows down and forgot that I was blaring Celine Dion and I’m was just so embarrassed …THAT I DIDN’T TURN IT UP LOUDER! “…MY HEART WILL GO ON…AND ON…AND ON!!!!”

4. Speaking of which, I am still throwing some serious shade at Rose. I mean, clearly there was enough room on that door for Jack too. All she had to do was just skooch over an inch. AN INCH! I’ve got news for you, Rose. My heart will not go on!


5. Everyone carries a jar of jam around in their purse, right? No? Just me? Okay.

6. There should be a word for when you’re trying to think of a word that describes something, but can’t think of that word.

7. It’s Thursday which means tomorrow’s Friday which means the second I walk into my apartment, pants are off, Netflix is queued and pizza is on speed dial. I don’t make the rules, guys. I just follow them.

Question of the day: What are some of your Thoughts on a Thursday?

Thoughts on a Thursday

1. I just finished re-re-reading Mocking Jay in anticipation for the movie which opens tomorrow (technically it opens tonight at midnight but I’m old and lame). Why?! Why do I do this to myself?! Who else is pumped to see this movie though?! I’m a little hesitant that they decided to split it up into two parts, but I guess that just means more room (and time) to include ALL of the details.

2. This song has been stuck in my head for 36.777 hours now. I’m going to go ahead and apologize right now to my poor coworkers who have had and will have to put up with my mad karaoke skills for the rest of the day/week.

3. Um, can we talk about how incredibly cute Mr. Adam Lavine is here for a second?  #sigh

4. I just had a really big interview (if you’re counting, it’s number 4,367) for an Adult Graduate Student Librarian position at Bryan College in Dayton, TN!! I’d say I feel really good about it, but I’ve felt “really good” about all 4,367 interviews before this one. Any good ju-ju thoughts, fingers-crossed, and 11:11 wishes directed my way would be mucho appreciated.

5. To celebrate said interview, I got a #facelift. Because how else is one supposed to celebrate other than buying and devouring a cookie the size of a small hippo?


6. Speaking of hippos…

7. Turkey Day is less than 7 days away!!! That means we’ve only got one week to train. Our stretchy pants, that is.

Have a great rest of your Thursday, guys!! 🙂

Thoughts on a Thursday

  • Can we just talk about how much I LOVE this?!?! To all the butt and boob guys out there…
  • I recently discovered the amazingness that is NetFlix. Crap.
  • My new obsession? Scented markers. The plus side: They smell delicious. The bad side: I am now branded with red, blue, green and yellow dots on my nose. Don’t judge.
  • Is it me or does this truck have a big badunkadunk. A badunkadunky truck. Try saying that 5 times fast 😉

  • I’m in the process of putting together my “Winter Break” reading list. So far I’ve got about 23 titles including this and this and this. And before you say anything, I know, I know…I’m going to have to add more books. Those 23 will last me all of about a week to get through. #nerdgirlproblems
  • My poor baby had to go into the vet yesterday to get roto-rootered (he was a little backed up). Good news is, he now can booty pop like no other pooch I’ve ever seen. Or booty toot, in his case. thunds
  • The bug guy payed yet another visit to my ant-infested house today. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed when he walked up the front steps and didn’t resemble a member of this crew…

  • Awkward face-reddening-like-a-bright-tomato moment of the week (so far): Asking the customer service rep at the mall if they could please tell me where the S&M store was. Yup. I said S&M. The poor guy looked at me like I had three heads or something. “Um. Do you mean H&M?” he asked, his face as red nearly as red as mine. “Yeah, that would be the one.” Isn’t that horrible?! But that’s not even the worst part. This was the second time I had confused the two completely and utterly different shops. Oy vey.

Have a great rest of your Friday-eve, friends!
