7 Words and Phrases It’s Time To Build a Bridge and GET OVER

We already know I’m one of the most annoying people out there. I have a blog for God’s sake, and one with no niche at that and I can’t even post regularly or use commas like an adult and how annoying are people with “blogs,” amiright? Everyone has one. Omg. A friend recently told me that all he knew about me were the things I hated, and really had no idea what I actually liked. Anyone else? In that spirit, here are some words and phrases that I think people could stop using at any time now. Because I, and…

Silly Things That Genuinely Scare Me

I think it’s quite possible that I have a reputation for being a bit of a hardass. My Russian coworker who barely knows me at all has already described me as “a very tough American woman” and was surprised to hear that I was drinking fruity drinks on my cruise, “is there really something girly in your system?” Evidently I am a mean old man. I’d really hate to tarnish that reputation, but I think it might be a good thing to humanize myself a little. So, I’ve decided to share my deepest, darkest fears. Frankly, I don’t think they’re silly,…

Cool Product Alert: Butterfly Body Liners

Any guess as to what a Butterfly Body Liner is? It’s not as pretty and delicate as it sounds, I can tell you that. I was intrigued to learn more about the Butterfly Body Liner when I heard an ad for it on the radio–some station out of Chicago we listen to at work. Frankly, I didn’t catch any of the ad except the last part…”Butterfly Body Liner, www.butterfly.com.” Boy, was I in for a surprise…and a little bit of an education. I did what any free-spirited and curious girl would do…I went to www.butterfly.com to check out the product!…

Alternative Career Paths I Could’ve Taken But Didn’t

It has been a long road to get to where I am in my career today. I didn’t always want to be a florist/guest services employee. Actually, I never wanted to work at the front desk of a hotel, but desperate times, my friends. For a second job, it’s really a pretty good option. I had several other choices I could have chosen, and some that I had even begun to pursue. Let’s reflect. Radio DJ-  From what I recall, this is the first thing I wanted to be when I grew up. I watched a lot of Disney movies…

You’re alone on Valentine’s? So cry about it.

I get annoyed at what people post on Facebook every single day. Then sometimes I post a status about how annoyed I am about the stupid things I read, which is probably pretty annoying. Instead of doing it on Facebook today, I’m going to write a blog post instead, because passive aggressiveness is totally neat. And it’s kinda my thang. Aside from the whole month of November when people are posting everyday about the mundane things they’re thankful for (my mom! my husband! my kids! chocolate!) and putting up pictures of their disgusting beards, Valentine’s Day is by far the…

On Being a Casual Lady Sportsfan

Seemingly, about this time of year, I always find myself uttering the words, “But I took football stats in high school…” at least once. I mean…who cares, right? As soon as high school is behind you, those activities you were involved in go up in a cloud of smoke. Being student body president of a student body with 250 people in it meant virtually nothing at the time, and means even less now. Still, I sometimes feel the need to defend myself should I ever display any minor football knowledge. As a woman, I feel like I am at a…

5 Awkward Breakfast Cereals

I felt the need to qualify this since, you know, you have your breakfast cereals, your lunch cereals, and your dinner cereals, and today we’re just focusing on breakfast cereals. Oh, you didn’t know? Yeah, lunch and dinner cereals would include your Rice/Corn/Wheat Chex, Wheaties, Corn Flakes, Corn Pops, Rice Krispies, Bran Flakes, Raisin Bran, Fiber One, Unfrosted Mini-Wheats, and Life. Now that I’ve cleared that up, let’s talk about the crap you’re feeding your kids. Sugar content is another topic for another time, but I’ve picked out what I feel are the top 5 awkwardly named breakfast cereals available now or…

2014 Book to Big Screen Challenge!

A few weeks ago, I read a Buzzfeed article called 16 Books To Read Before They Hit Theaters This Year. I thought, “That’s cool, I should totally do that.” Then I went back to watching videos of animals jumping on trampolines. Yesterday, a friend sent me the article again, because she’s always showing me things I’ve already seen, and I thought, “That’s cool, I should totally do that.” So I’m going to do it. Except I don’t like being told what to do and how to do it, so I’m going to read 16 Books As I See Fit At…
