    Wednesday Wisdom

    I love those days where you don’t plan a post and you think that you can just come home after work and put something together but then you have a work meeting that goes until 9 PM, 9 freaking PM and you’re in a surly-ass mood when you finally get home and get to wash your greasy face. Me, right now. Instead of a lovely collection of quotes for this Wednesday Wisdom, I just have some sage personal advice that I’ve collected over these 31 years. You’d think that this would be something that one would assess before having kids, a trip to Target will tell you otherwise. I find…

    Fall Tag!

    Guess what time it is? Time for a fall tag, my thoughts exactly 😛 It’s the first rainy, cool day that we have had in a few weeks and I am feeling the vibe. I saw this on tumblr, I don’t know how active this account is but the tag looked like a lot of fun and just what I needed this afternoon! I did skip some because I felt it was a little long. Ms. Frizzle which is pretty much my go-to for Halloween these days since I just have the wardrobe for it and don’t need to purchase new items generally. Any hot soup with crusty bread for…

    Life-Changing Inventions from My Lifetime

    First, I have lost my Gloss Bomb – it’s my favourite lip gloss and it goes everywhere with me so I have no idea how I lost it but alas. I don’t want to purchase a new one because I just bought a new tube like 3 months ago and that shit’s expensive. I could to a psychic and have them tell me where it is for less than a new tube. Things I would consider going to a psychic for: location of lost lip gloss, find out if a serial killer lives in my building and where does Home Depot find all of those hot guys to be in…

    Wednesday Wisdom – Rushing Time

    Do you know what peeves me off? Time, just in general, I find it very irritating. Time doesn’t actually exist, it’s only 6:30 pm in Minnesota because we all have this understanding and choose to participate in this human contrived notion of time. And then on top of all of this time shit, we have all of these deadlines which is like time within time – time squared. We manage our time to the point that we don’t have any. It’s nuts, it drives me crazy, I’d like to get off the ride now. I just want to get up when the sun comes up, go to work, get as…

    Monday Must Have – A New Routine

    I misplaced my carton of coffee cream yesterday morning so this morning when I went to make my coffee, I of course, assumed that somehow had broken into my apartment and pilfered the creamer because that makes sense. How does one misplace an entire carton of coffee creamer? Glad you asked, I have no idea. I threw my blow dryer in the trash after I was done with it about a week ago and came home and again figured it was probably an intruder. It wasn’t, I am clearly losing my mind. This is it, it’s dementia, I figured this day would be here sooner than later. I found the…

    Sephora Insider Event: A Rant

    So, I’m at a point where I only shop at Sephora two times a year during the VIB events. I spend enough between the two sales so that I can keep my Rouge status because that 20% coupon is worth it to me. I think that it’s a great opportunity to stock up on products that never go on sale. I didn’t realize that this time around the coupon was restricted to one online purchase thus was the catalyst for this rant. First, it isn’t the customers’ fault that their distribution center can’t keep up with demand and restricting the coupon to one-time online use isn’t the solution. The shipping…

    Pet Peeves: Part II

    I have been in the mood for fall decor, I am pretty much one of those people who skips the leaves and gourds and gets right to Halloween decor in mid-September but I thought that this year, I would do the fall thing. While I was perusing the fall decor I came upon these: The missing element keeping me from the fall decor of all my fantasies, faux artichokes. Who the shit is decorating their home with faux artichokes? I’ll tell you who, actually I literally have no idea. Apparently people who separate fall and Halloween into two separate events and I am not that person, I can’t with vegetables…

    The Case of the Missing Screws – A Rant

    I realized something last night, I have a difficult time watching or listening to something for pure entertainment without imposing real-life judgement and opinions on it. Is this what the rest of my life will be like?! It’s torture! I was watching Gilmore Girls last night, yet again, and I got so annoyed because Rory is the most obnoxious, entitled, spoiled brat literally ever. The mother/daughter relationship is a toxic friendship at best and I just can’t watch it. What mother would behave like the pouting, simpering immature woman that Lorelai is? Ugh. I tell  you, does anyone else experience this? Why can’t we just mindlessly take in entertainment simply…

    #wednesdaywisdom: The Metal Edition

    I was watching some Gilmore Girls last night and completely forgot that Sebastian Bach co-starred for a number of seasons. This inspired me to listen to a little metal while I was making dinner and I realized that under all the makeup up and spandex, there’s a lot of life lessons to be gleaned. So, for those about to rock, here’s a little midweek inspiration: Happy  headbanging, thanks for stopping by <3

    When I Grow Up…

    I found myself at the grocery store this afternoon behind a very elderly gentleman who asked the teenage cashier what he wanted to be when he grew up. I thoroughly enjoy people watching, listening to conversations which might be considered rude but I’m not stopping. It’s one of those questions that you think about and someone might ask you, maybe but it was fascinating to see this cliche conversation play out in real life and suddenly it didn’t seem so cliche. Then I got deep in the weeds with a very elderly gal behind me about grapefruits, I always end up getting chatted up by the elderly, I’m not sure…
