Let it go?

Off to Florida for Thanksgiving, and both excited and embarrassed to say that I bought Frozen on iTunes and will be watching it for the first time on the flight. Maybe now I can understand what all the hype is about. Or not...

Either way, bring on the carb-fest. Not going to let THAT go.

Happy thanksgiving!!

If it ain't broke...

I don't understand why they keep remaking movies and songs - Footloose was just fine, dammit! A few years back they re-did "We Are the World" for Haiti relief, and now they have re-recorded "Do They Know It's Christmas" for Ebola?! The lyrics are kind of laughable, I'm sorry ("where a kiss of love can kill you, and there’s death in every tear") - and some people are complaining that most people in Africa are Muslim and don't celebrate Christmas anyway. (So they really DON'T know it's Christmas. Hey-oh.)

Calling fowl on this one

Heard a commercial on the radio this morning for a free turkey from Kroger! However, it's only free after you buy $150 worth of groceries. So...$150 turkey from Kroger! Happy holidays everyone.

Rizzoli and...Stockton?

Happened upon my "People You May Know" page on Facebook, and at the top of the list was Angie Harmon.

See below for proof:

We have 12 friends in common?! 12 people I know know her? She's getting divorced, apparently - she needs a girls night out! I'm in, Angie. Have your people call...well, me.

Vicious Cycle

It's all fun and games until you see someone you know on Match. And when you are matched with them from the site, you have to look at their profile. Which means they will SEE that you looked at their profile. So I feel obligated to say hello, since otherwise that's just rude? But also super embarrassing - maybe it's actually best to ignore and pretend it didn't happen. Until you see them out...and ignore them again.

Just kill me. (not literally though)

Seriously. Charles Manson is getting married?! Charles MANSON? Clearly I am doing something wrong here.

Close call #38457

Had a near-disaster in the bathroom this morning. Went to grab my face lotion out of the cabinet:

Two very similar-sized, orange-colored tubes greeted me. I initially grabbed the one on the left. Good thing I glanced down before rubbing it all over my face:

That could have been fairly unfortunate. And uncomfortable.

Had such fun at UNC Homecoming this weekend. Came back with a gigantic Michael Jordan cup, a blue and white pom-pom and a 7-year-old follower on Instagram. Which means I am going to have to really watch what I post from now on. Holy (self-imposed) censorship. May also have to watch how MUCH I post from now on - you know you have a problem when a 7-year-old tells you you post too many photos. #kidssaythedarndestthings

UPDATE: Now her 9-year-old brother is following me as well. #pressure

Heel yes

Off to Chapel Hill for UNC Homecoming this weekend. Tar Heel basketball + Tar Heel football + tailgating (even in 45 degree weather) + college friends = YAY. A little horrified that it's our 15-year reunion, but no more horrified than the fact that I've already received an invite to our 20-year high school reunion next year.

Why Does She Do It, Folks?!

Why do I save the extra buttons that come on a new coat, when I have no idea how to sew on a button?! Perhaps there will be a craft project someday that will require a hot glue gun and a bunch of buttons. Of course, that would then require me to buy a hot glue gun. #viciouscycle

I just have one word for this.


(Okay, I have a few more words, but I think "WHY" sums it up. Good lord.)

In other car news...

Finally got my car back from the shop after a week. I so missed Sirius XM and my UNC sticker. But I clearly missed more than that - somehow forgot how to turn on the lights in the ol' Mustang. Even had to pull out the manual from the glove compartment to remind myself.  God forbid they had it any longer - would have needed a freaking Driver's Ed course. #holyblondemoment

Where the hell is 4th gear?!

This morning on the radio they were talking about how hard it is to teach someone to drive a stick-shift, and everyone was sharing their horror stories. I have my own. I found out a few weeks before I turned 16 that my parents had bought me a car (yay!), and that it was a manual transmission (boo!). My mom took me out and tried to teach me in our church parking lot, but we got so annoyed with each other that she told my dad he had to do it. My dad took me out to some neighborhood in the middle of nowhere, and at one point I opened the door and got out, screaming "I can't do this! It's too hard!" But it's amazing the motivation of not being able to drive your brand new car can do to a person. In a week I had it down. But I'm not sure I would ever want to teach anyone else.  Especially in a hilly area. #pass

Not sure what block Jenny is from...

When I heard that part of Jennifer Lopez's rider requires staff to bake an apple pie every day, I thought it was weirdo and diva-ish, but nice - she eats apple pie with her kids! But no - she actually requires it only because she likes the smell of baking apple pie. Um, hi. They make candles for that. #mustbenice

Zero Dark Thirty indeed

The one good thing about it getting dark earlier? When I get home, I can't see all the dog hair Charlie sheds on the floor and there is no need to Swiffer every damn night. Thanks daylight saving time!

Insert crickets chirping

As I mentioned, I am obsessed with the sound buttons on my desk. That's What She Said, That Was Easy and What the Eff?! Thrilled to find that there are a billion other ones I can add to my collection:

Of particular interest, the crowd booing and the lion roar. What - no seal bark? No sneeze? (Actually, these probably do exist somewhere.)

Someday, I will finally live out my dream of never having to speak and only communicating through buttons.

Impressive or super OCD - you be the judge

So I'm done with my Christmas shopping. Actually, I was done last week, but it sounds a tad better now that it's November. Although I realize it still sounds fairly nuts. Ah well - one less thing to stress about come December. And one more free night I'll have to watch Elf. #sothere

Rear-ender Fender Bender

Got in my first legit car accident on Friday night. (I say "legit" because of course there have been some hiccups of me vs the curb, etc.) It wasn't my fault - I got rear-ended - but it shook me up! Her car suffered more damage than mine, but I still have to take it in to get the bumper checked out. Kind of wish I had more proof of being in an accident - is a nice arm scrape or a black eye asking too much? Oh well. I would say maybe next time, but hopefully there won't BE a next time. #eeks
