Stuff From All Over

June 29, 2012

Is it Friday? I didn’t know. All I can think about is how tonight I am eating actually honest to goodness sushi for the first time in 35 days instead of just sashimi. But more than what I am shoving in my face I am also freaking out about seeing Magic Mike and the love of my life Alex Pettyfer and I don’t care about almost anything else that will happen today.

Almost. There’s that whole ugly weigh in today. I just…yeah. I may have had a tiny anxiety attack about it last night so my goal now is not to win but just to get through it without crying. As of this morning I was up 0.5 pound so, you know, I’m totally and completely sane and rational about this.

Okay. Moving on.

Baby Picture of the Week

The best compliment I got all week was when this little one was fussy and got quiet almost instantly when I took her. I know it won’t always be that way but I needed that ego boost!

Puppy Picture of the Week

I know, at 4 years he is technically an adult and not a puppy but this was too cute to ignore. Latte’s still got it (“Damn right,” he says) and he’s still the light of my life even if I do feel like he’s had a rough time since I brought his baby brother home.

Irrational Thought of the Week: “I need to trim my hair before I go for my haircut tomorrow so it doesn’t look so ratty.”

Yes. Haircut tomorrow morning. So excited. I need to find inspiration pictures.

Links:

I don’t really want to be a professional photographer but I’d love to be able to take pictures like these (slightly NSFW) of my friends/family whenever we’re all hanging out. I mean, we definitely don’t party like that but I think you know what I mean, right?

If you’re not reading the tumblr Animals Talking in All Caps I highly recommend it. They’re not all amazing, but when they are they’re flawless. Especially this Manatee.

And then Text from Dog got me again this week.

I know Father’s Day is over but last time I checked Dads don’t get days off. These Dad commercials are some of my favorites, especially the Subaru one because I have that same conversation with my own father 9/10 times I leave the house. And I will admit to crying over that google ad every single time I watch it.

Another Tumblr I can’t get enough of is STFU Parents. It makes me hate Facebook more than I already do. But at least I’m learning how not to use social media? I know I’m an oversharer but there are some lines I don’t cross (that’s a particularly disgusting example, but there are far too many more where that came from).

I am not someone who is usually “meh” about anything. Either I hate it or I love it. And by love I mean I am totally obsessed. But at least I’m not alone in that. And I am not alone in loving things other people hate. I DO WHAT I WANT.

Finally, are you in the mood for a scary story? This one will make your pulse race. I got a little panicked too.

This Weekend:

I will get my haircut, I will start packing, I will clean my room so it’s absolutely pristine and perfect, I will spend some time with my writing because I have missed it so much (and I will not care that it may have taken some awful fanfiction to remind me of that), I will prepare my awesome guest posts for next week, and I will get all of my prep work done for my big projects next week.

And I will sleep, and I will swim. Butterfly. But no pressure : )

How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
