Unfortunately, I’m being a crappy person and avoiding all responsibilities right now. Meaning I should have unpacked from Official Cookie Weekend 2010 and started cake balls for charity but I’m so SICK of cake balls.
Instead I’m going to write down a list that we went over this weekend at my mum’s. Now, if we’re being honest (which we are) no one really measures up to the list so just consider going halvsies.
So, withour further ado. Here’s Amanda’s list of what makes a lady:
1.) As previously mentioned, a lady never farts. Ladies toot. Unless it’s for vengeance, there’s nothing ladylike about vengeance and therefore you can vengefully fart and still be a lady.
2.) Ladies have at least 4 accents perfected. Come on. Commit to being a lady and practice here.
3.) Ladies are bad at doing dishes. So bad in fact that people recommend they never do them. Ever.
4.) A lady always tells. A lady will take all jokes one step too far and guess what. It’s NBD. Why? Because she’s a lady, that’s why.
5.) Ladies can have tattoos. As many as I have or plan on having.
6.) A real lady watches extremely dorky TV shows and quotes completely obscure parts of them at random points with people who do not understand. She then may or may not choose to laugh at how silly they are for not getting it. (Case in point: “I see it.”)
7.) A lady can draw anthopomorphic food with clever sayings. Done.
8.) Ladies are good at buying gifts for people because they only buy gifts for people who like what they would buy themselves. Wait, what?
9.) Ladies love hot dogs.
10.) A lady is like a vase with titties….wait no. That’s something else entirely.
I’m exhausted after all that listing. Man. It’s a good thing I’m such a lady. I can school you suckers for days on this. I’ve used that word too much now. That word being “lady”. Goddammit.
On rainy days like we’ve been having lately, I like to look at photos of better times.
But not everyday in Chicago can be perfect weather with walks to shops and fun trips to the park. No, we have to have some pooey days to make us appreciate the good days more. So here are some ways to take full advantage of the gloomy days:
- Play board games. Granted, we rarely play board games just the two of us.
- Watch movies. Netflix is a godsend.
- Snuggle with stink mouth mcgoo and take an afternoon nap.
- Update your blog that has been missing you dearly.
- Read comic books. Or even regular books if you’re so inclined.
- Catch up on TV shows you’ve been missing.
- BAKE! I need to get some cookies out of my creative system and onto the baking sheet.
That’s really all that I can even imagine doing right now. Those things listed above. I’ve already had quite the productive morning meeting some lovely ladies of Chicago for a nice bike brunch. It was fantastic to meet new people and even ride in the rain, though in the future I would not recommend a silk skirt and leather jacket. No no. But now I can relax completely knowing that I’ve already had a busier Sunday than usual.
What do you do when the weather forces you indoors on the weekend?
What’s happened since I last posted? Let’s get straight to the facts.
Fact #1: New Year’s Eve happened. There was a party. And a broken table. And fun times.
Fact #2: I make delicious chocolate chip cookies. No seriously. The added deliciousness of the genuine Mexican vanilla gave them a special kick….in the pants.
Fact #3: Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an awesome show. If Xander Harris were a Disney character, he’d be Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid. Think about it looks wise. Yep.
Fact #4: I have 3 job interviews this week. 2 of which are in Chicago. I want to move to Chicago something desperate. I really want a job so keep those finger crossed, ya hear me?
Fact #5: I’m in a karaoke contest finale on Friday. Though I’m not certain I deserve to be. I’d love to have some support with me there. Hint hint. This is also the LAST chance any of you will get to visit Grand Rapids while I’m here. More hints. I have a good song picked out.
Fact #6: Johnpants and I are moving in less than 2 weeks. Hopefully to Chicago. More than likely back home for an undetermined amount of time. I hate packing. Like, I really hate it. And saying goodbye? No way. I’m terrible at that too. Darn. Now I’m sad again.
I’m over giving you facts for today. I need to get productive and print some stuff fr our drive to the Windy City tomorrow. Man, that’s still insane to me.
If you haven’t heard of The Scribble Project, but you love to doodle, you should definitely check it out. They provide you with a blank “scribble sheet” for you to interpret however you’d like. Good for wasting time.
Now, I don’t dare call myself talented in the art department. I just love to doodle. I have decided to keep a folder of my doodles lately. Which is funny since they’re mostly post it notes with robots and bikes on them.
It’s been getting cooler out as of late and that has me really contemplating the best way to enjoy Autumn.
Step 1.) Hard Cider – Check. This delicious concoction is really a great part about fall.
Step 2.) Tights with dresses – Check. Is it wrong that I look forward to my ensembles that involve this combination? Nope.
Step 3.) Pumpkins. Tentative plan for pumpkin carving and seed eating is in the works. I’m super pumped.
Step 4.) Apple orchard/Cider Mill. Well, I may just join the family tomorrow for a bike ride to a Cider Mill for my Dad’s birthday. Let’s pause for a second to point out how awesome it is that my dad wants to go for a bike ride for his 50 somethingth birthday. Very cool, Dad. Very cool.
Step 5.) Costumes, Candy, Cadavers (i.e. Halloween). Okay, so cadavers sounds disgusting….I just wanted a good alliteration.
Step 6.) Scawy Movies. Yes, Scawy. Throw on a good gore fest or foreign horror movie and I’m thrilled. Give me a little Kiki’s Delivery Service on the side and I’m smitten.
Step 7.) You tell me.
Ahh! Disappointment! Neglect!
I really feel as though I’ve been slacking in my blog updates as of late. The truth is, I’ve been kind of busy. And by “kind of” I mean super.
But, alas, my busy-ness will be slowing now that Nick and Kat’s wedding has come and gone (which may be written about later, with photos).
However, I AM crazy busy right this moment….because I’m at work. I’m taking my 15 minute break (which I rarely remember to take) to reach out to you and let you know you’re missed.
So as to not completely bore you with my apologies and ill feelings about abandonment I’ll share with you a list. This is going to be a list of things I clearly love (based on what I can find in my cubicle).
1.) My Mister. There’s a very adorable picture of us on my desk that I get to see often.
2.) Cream Soda. There are 5 glass bottles emptied of this stuff. 2 different brands (I recommend Henry Weinhard’s).
3.) Corgis. Namely, Ash.
4.) Colorful pens for doodling.
5.) Post it notes.
6.) Hidden candy treasures.
7.) My phone. It’s much prettier now that I’ve removed the cover.
8.) Printouts that make me seem important. Such as ebay awards and the like.
There, all better. You’ve gotten your fix!
