Marriage is What Brings Us Together.....Today.

When I said my life has been busy?  I wasn't lying.  I have been stressed to the max and it had me feeling overwhelmed and crazy and on the brink of a nervous breakdown....but I have calmed the fuck down in the last week.  Thank god, because I am not sure how much more my brain could take.  Stress overload mang, it DOES NOT do a body good.

BUUUTTTT, this post is not about stress.  This post is about one of my best friends getting married and celebrating her soon to be nuptials with some girl time!

Me and the other beautiful bridesmaid decided to throw Jess a very classy bachelorette.  Since none of us are about strippers and craziness, Sarah and I came up with the idea of an overnight stay at a fancy hotel, a lovely dinner at a nice restaurant, followed by high tea the next day.  The hotel and dinner were for just the three of us, and the high tea was for the rest of the family...moms and nonas and aunts and cousins.

Since we had to leave work early to check into the hotel, I made sure to get to work before the sun came up, and in turn ended up looking like this at my desk all day:

This is Just Gorgeous

Wow.  A super awesome perspective of Toronto by Ryan Emond.  Pay particular attention to 1:22 (Skydome!! My dad's old company made the equipment that opens and closes the roof!). Also to 2:35, and you will know why I DO NOT live right downtown.

Enjoy!

I have been MIA for a while because life has exploded in a great big BLAM! of confetti and streamers and craziness and GAH!  

So I apologize for that.

Mental Health Day; 2

Well aren't I a giant asshole?  I took my sweet ass time getting this part two out!  Life has pretty much blown up in my face, in a good way...super busy these days, although I am starting to feel the pull to slow down.  Sometimes if I do too much and take on too much (ok all the time) I start getting stressed out and then all my yes's turn to big fat NO'S.

Mental Health Day

Now that looks like a girl who needs coffee.  Last Friday I took the day off of work so that I could gallivant around the city with Dave.  He had never been to Toronto Island before, so seeing that it was a GORGEOUS day out there, it was the destination of choice for the day.

The Giving of the Thanks

Phew!  Busy weekend.  Busy, busy!  But a good one all the same.  Started it with a day off of work on Friday (mental health day), where Dave and I went to Toronto Island.  But that's for another post!  This is the Thanksgiving post!

Uhh, even though my nails are Halloween-y.

This is the Truth



Wait!...CRAP!

I did something pretty freaking hilariously stupid today.

I was talking to some coworkers about the one and only date I went on when I was 15-years-old, and how the guy was a skeaze who kept calling me 'Scully' the whole time.

I asked the guy why he kept calling me that and well, I had to mime his answer to my coworkers on account of managers being right there and whatnot.  So I um...used the universal symbol for blow job.  We all know what that is, right?  

Ok....for those who don't:


Yeah, like I WASN'T going to include it.  Do you even know me?

So apparently calling a girl 'Scully' or, a scully means that you are a girl who gives a beej on the first date.  Of course my 15-year-old self was mortified.

But let's fast forward to today.  I was walking back to my dungeon after my awesome story, and I was continuing to mime the hand gesture while walking down the stairs (by myself I might add) and giggling about how stupid my stories are sometimes.

So I am blow job miming the entire way, only to come face to face with some dude staring in the window at me.

Great.

I am an idiot.

Note to everyone: don't ever mime a blow job when you are by yourself.  

Because that's weird.
