Monday Miscellany

Happy Monday, folks! It's that time of week where you are fresh from the weekend (in my case, always feeling too short) and tackling another work week!

My friend, Emily, had her bachelorette party this weekend in DC and boy was it a good time. But I am feeling kind of like this after the festivities:

I will do another post on the Bachelorette-ness, but I don't have the pics uploaded onto my computer yet. That might have something to do with the fact that I spent all day most of the day in the fetal position  recovering from said partying.

In the meantime, here are some Monday randoms for you.

1. I love string cheese. Dear God, it is incredible. I love cheese in general (I may have been a mouse in a previous life, I love it so much). At my school, string cheese is one of the snacks they have on hand for kids. This has made me CRAVE string cheese, and I have gone to the grocery store and purchased massive packs of it. It disappears pretty fast. Mmmmm. I brought four in today. I'll be happy if they make it through Tuesday.

2. Let's talk And let's talk about all the sketchball 40+ year olds who write me, despite my age window clearly ending at 33. Ew. I'll get "I know I'm out of your age range, but I thought I would try anyway" or "I just wanted to write such a pretty girl and wish her luck on her search"...the underlying tone of that is still the same blatant message as the first ("...and see if you might respond"). Goo. No thank you. No no no. On the other hand, there are some good looking guys on there, but their profiles are always like two sentences long. Call me crazy, but I don't believe that you are here looking for Ms. Right when all you can post is two things including how you love to hang out with your friends and have fun. Duh. Who doesn't do that?

3. Pinterest. Holy balls. I have loved this site, but I am still amazed at how it continuously does NOT disappoint as a time waster. I find myself on it when I have a free minute or two at work, and always end up drooling over yummy looking food that I just want to eat then. Which is usually when I head over to the mini fridge in my office and eat some string cheese. Dang I need to hit the gym. And hire someone to be my personal assistant and make me all of the recipes that I drool over. If only a teacher's salary paid well...

4. Hunger Games trilogy. I just finished the last book in the series yesterday. Man, were they good. I'm a little sad, like I always am, when I'm done with a book that I've become invested in the characters. But, it was a great read. Super easy but really sucks you in. If you haven't tried it, do it. I don't think you will be disappointed, at all! Next on my to read list: Three Cups of Tea.

Alright, this chick needs to get back to work. I hope you enjoyed my totally random post about absolutely nothing of real relevance. But, isn't that what Mondays are for?? :)


  1. Pinterest is absolutely my favorite time-waster. I'm so addicted!!

  2. I am craacking up at your paragraph! I have faith your man is out there (and under the age of 33!)

  3. i hate that i missed emily's bachelorette weekend!

  4. Your mention of guys on is so funny. I've heard so many stories from my friends that are on it. Happy Monday!

  5. I'm such a sucker for string cheese! I love being able to play with my food and then eat it!

  6. I love string's very assisting! I'm reading Hunger Games now. I'm only on book 1, but I love it already. Happy Monday!!

  7. AH, loved the Hunger Games series....I didn't want it to end either!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
