The Cranky Life

Guess who woke up on the wrong side of life this morning? This gal!! I only got 3.5 hours of sleep last night, which made me an hour and a half late for work, and when I got to work, I discovered my pear had killed itself all over the inside of my bag.

Themed Parties? No Thank You.

Friday morning at work, I walked in to this:

Times They Are A-Changin'

Last night I was awoken at 3AM by rain whipping against my bedroom window. There had been high wind warnings and it was nice to fall asleep to the sound of the wind blowing through the eaves, but when you add rain into the mix, it becomes quite loud.  I had only ever experienced rain like that once before when I was in Blackpool in the UK: a coastal town. We could see the giant storm coming in from the shore and everyone was hustling to tie things down and secure everything. It was pretty exciting. Falling asleep in a cozy inn in the UK with a huge storm blowing against my windows was pretty much a dream come true for me. 

So last night was nice. Until the thunder and lightening jolted me completely awake. A thunderstorm. In January.

The Hair That Could

Just look at this hair would you?  I am blessed to have a dear close friend who is only the best hair stylist, hair artist in the entire world. Because what she does is art. She can take the most un-extraordinary person and make them amazing. Because she is amazing.

I Wanna Be Sedated

Look at this one! Working hard or hardly working?

January Slush

It's raining today, and gloomy. And the seconds have been creeping by for this work day to be over. 

I hate Friday's for that reason, and that reason alone. Did you know that following Saturday, Monday is my favorite day of the week? I don't mind Monday's: you have had two days between yourself and your workplace, two days of rest/ sleep, two days of video games and reading books and watching movies with the ones you love.

Batshit Crazy

So I have been having A LOT of trouble sleeping lately. Which isn't that weird because I used to have crazy insomnia when I was a teenager (from all the drugs I was doing, I'm convinced), which then bled into my early twenties (sans any kind of drugs. This is sad), and then it kind of evened out where I have bouts every once in a while. Still not a good sleeper, still sleep like a freaking baby who is finicky and wakes up all the time and needs a boob, but there you go! Welcome to my sleep deprived brain. Run on sentence city.

My Life in the Past Two Weeks

My evening tonight. Except not really. I did drink the beer, but I didn't read a word of my book, nor did I fire up the Playstation. Sometimes the best laid plans right? Instead I plopped my fat ass down on the couch and watched a movie about Mike Tyson. Cool.

Happy Baby Pose?

I have been dealing with a sick boyfriend around these parts. For those of you who have dealt with a sick boyfriend, you know that most boyfriends turn into big babies who want their mothers. Like that hilarious NyQuil commercial. Want to know why it's funny? Because it's true. All women around the world saw that commercial and nodded knowingly and glanced over at another sista and high-fived her. Maybe even snapped their fingers in a Z formation at each other. MMMM-HHMMM!

2012: A Year in Photographs

Shit these things take me an entire day (sometimes a few) to put together. It better be appreciated. Just kidding! I have been doing these photo slideshows since 2009, and it's always neat to go back and see all the things I did or thought were cool that year.

Here was my 2012, in a nutshell:

Here's Looking At You 2013

Who else is excited to see 2012 gone? I personally am pretty excited for 2013, I think it will be a good year. And I know everyone always starts out positive and then things go to shit, but I never start out positive. So it says something that I am this year right?
