nocoastofne replied to your chat: important middle-of-the-day convos with B If Branson is your favorite place when you are in your twenties, where do you think your favorite place would be when you are in your seventies? Probably still Branson. Because you probably wouldn’t ever go anywhere outside of an approximately tri-state area.
National Pancake Day
I made real homemade pancakes for dinner last night. We could’ve gotten free ones at I-Hop, of course, but we both respect ourselves enough to not give that place more business. They were delicious. But I somehow got batter alllll up and down my left arm, all over my t-shirt AND on my purse (which was in the next room?!?!?!). I have been trying to clean it off my purse fabric for about...
important middle-of-the-day convos with B
B: Remember when ****'s wife said Branson was her favorite place in the world?
Me: hahahahahahhaahahhaahah hahahahhaahahahahahaha What brought that up?
B: Just popped into my head. Fury ensued.
I dreamed that we (I think me and my sister?) smuggled a cat into a movie theater. It may have been Eleanor, maybe our childhood cat, Amber. Anyway, I’m pretty sure it was my sister’s idea to bring a cat to the movies. When we left the theater, sister was just carrying the cat in her arms. A woman that worked at the theater stopped us, but then let sister leave. She asked if I was...
Nerdiest Sunday in Recent Memory:
Dark Souls video game for B: Reading “Storm of Swords” for me: Watching “Breaking Bad”: A cousin’s 15th birthday party: B teaching me to play chess: Additional tidbit: The chess set he is using to teach me is his prized childhood set. While we were playing, Eleanor stepped on the box and basically ruined it. I thought it was kind of cute. Watched the...
I have been banned...
From ever touching B’s Facebook. I was being a creep on his phone, checking out his Facebook news feed. One of his college professors (whom I don’t know, but I have great nicknames for) has a new kitten, and posts lots of pictures. I was oooohhing and awwwwing over the adorableness, and B was making disgusted faces. After a while, B started yelling at me to get off his Facebook. I...
To the Oklahoma Progressive Plotting Mass Exodus
There is a sick pit in your stomach. A plantation in your front yard. The static flicker of black and white. An absurd talking picture, where sepia skin is now villain. You are not sure who to trust anymore. Everyone walks backwards in your neighborhood. You are surrounded by billboards with hate sized font. You are looking for a secret handshake. A fish with feet drawn in the sand. Blue...
Horrible Workplace Incident of the Day
I don’t know how this happened, so don’t judge me. The lunch time crowd was in the library, my supervisor, and two student workers were all around. I clicked a link, COMPLETELY by accident. It took me to a suuuuuuuper loud video that said “I’m sexy and I know it” before I could stop it. Also, it turns out the video was about how Zac Efron dropped a condom on the...

‘Heroes’ alum?? C’mon. A ‘Gilmore Girls’ reference would be way more legitimate. Also, I can’t believe ‘Walking Dead”s Shane is in it. Gross. And probbbb a huge spoiler for people that haven’t read ‘Walking Dead.’
This is not a completely legitimate excuse for not bringing me my dinner at an old people dinner time: Even if we are in the area that the weather channel highlighted and is filled with red…I’m cranky. I am working on a holiday, you didn’t. My students started texting me before 6am this morning. We were short staffed all day. And I have to stay late at work. I WANT THE...
I just received an email that was a forward that originated from my father. It was a SNL clip on Perez Hilton’s website. I’m so confused right now.

B and I are going to see Jack White in concert. In March. On a weeknight. I’m not sure why I hate myself so much…Or is it love?

My husband's doppelgangers
There are two famous people B is consistently told he looks like: Jack White. This one depends quite a bit on Jack/B’s facial and head hair. Also, Jack is paaaaaale as $#!@. B is not. (I also just saw a picture that shows Jack’s teeth. Not attractive or comparable to B.) Johnny Depp. This one happens ALL. THE. TIME. And has been happening for quite a few years. Following...

Gettin' down on Wednesday
Pretty excited about catching up on “The Walking Dead” and doing laundry tonight. I think I like that I’m so easy to please. Also, this picture is hilarious:
I read Mindy Kaling’s book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns)” in about 1.5 days this weekend. Before I get any further into this, let’s take a moment to notice how really, truly adorable she is: Okay, now. People who think that Kelly Kapoor is her only role in “The Office” need to wake up. Brilliance abounds in that pretty, squeaky...
nocoastofne replied to your post: Poke Cake Tales nope. too gross. wait…i’d still eat it, who am i kidding. BUT. you didn’t take the actual tampon out?? Happy toxic chemical lemon poke cake, B! I used the end that doesn’t have the cotton! If anything touched the cake, it would be the string thing. And only a little. The plastic isn’t toxic, is it? Dammit, you
Poke Cake Tales
B is a big fan of lemon cake. I’m not sure why, because he doesn’t have it at every birthday or holiday or anything. It first came up when we were planning our wedding. We talked about having a groom’s cake, and he announced that he wanted it to be lemon, and golf-themed…Not with green icing, though…A yellow golf course. We ended up just having one awesome...

apsies: newsweek: Pinterest, that website your friend from college is using to compile pictures of cupcakes and wedding dresses, just misstepped big-time when representatives from Mitt Romney’s campaign came knocking over a parody account on the site. It’s really too bad they pulled it because… Best use of Pinterest I’ve ever seen or heard of. Maybe it’s not useless.

I didn't get much sleep last night
Because I was home alone with Eleanor all night, and started reading this book: Set in modern day London, this book follows the experiences of an American girl attending an East End boarding school. Murders mimicking the crimes of Jack the Ripper begin happening, with no modern surveillance or any witnesses catching anything. I’m getting the vibe that a ghost is going to be involved. ...

I’m making THIS for dinner tonight: That is beef STEW served on mashed POTATOES.
