Friday Dump

This is less of a Five on Friday and more of a brain dump post.  #myblog #myrules #notsorry #yourewelcome #hashtagoverload #Imonaroll #notsorry #Icoulddothisallday #thatwouldgetannoying #Imannoying #thisismylife #YOLO

Anyways.  Now that I've got 1% of my Gentle Readers still with this tab open wondering WTF just happened, welcome to my life.  Moving on.

I wrote an entire post about our Hue lights.  I'll be posting it when we get in the final pieces.  I'm excited to share it with you, but I want to wait until we have everything complete before I post it so I don't have to update the post, because I know I'll never update the post.  So really, I'm saving myself work AND I'll have something to entertain you with while we're at Disneyland.  Yeah, you'll probably have to wait that long, but I promise it's worth it.  Although, I probably just broke a blogger rule telling you about how far in advance I will schedule a post.. and how I'll take advantage of content to my benefit.  Truthfully, I was a little worried about how quiet it would be around these parts while I was at Disney, so now #problemsolved #likeaboss.

I'll give you this preview though:

Teh Sister is coming today!  And Teh Utah Specialist/Bro-in-law!  And Teh Nephdawgs!

So far we've planned:
-making ears for Disney
-watching the Germany vs Brazil Olympic soccer rematch.
-seeing Pete's Dragon

I should probably change the sheets on the guest bed.

I can't stop listening to Pvris.  I just love them.

I'm SERIOUSLY concerned about my Disney runs.  Bum toe is really bumming me out.  I've been wrapping it since going to the chiro.  It's fine until I go to bed, when my toes, apparently, spread apart a crazy amount and having my 2 toes together is just unacceptable.  I slept sooo good last night because I released my toes from their prison.

This post about shit people have said coming out of anesthesia gave me the lolz.

I schedule a post about Hue lights, but still haven't finished editing the Germany photos to finish my recaps AND decorate my house.  #priorities

I accidentally stumbled upon this post on the GEGR forums from that one time that I stalked Teh MD-AR.  It's crazy to me that this level of crazy earned me one of the best friends a woman could ask for!  Soon after this post, we had a dog play date where we chatted for an hour while our dogs laid at the dog park napping.  Then we progressed to walking our pups together and then dog sitting for each other.  We became greyt, and great, friends and then we even progressed up to roomies!  It was a sad day when I moved to SC.  I'm so glad that we are friends through it all!  Also, this just shows that my crazy often pays off.  I mean, you remember that one time I joined an online dating site so I would have some good blog fodder?  Yeah.  I love being right.

I don't watch the news, but the fact that I heard about NOT hearing about the floods in LA causes my brain to wrinkle.  I wish I could understand what is going on in the media, but that's impossible.  When I think about the fact that I have a media degree and the media repulses me, I wonder what I was thinking.. But then I remember I was full of youth and hope and thought my voice would change things.  I've obviously learned that maybe I was wrong about that (one thing), but I still try to speak out and bring things to light when I can.  I can't fight every fight, but I can pick my battles and fight strong.


10 things that made me happy this week:
  1. Hue lights, despite their expense.
  2. Play dates with Roux the neighbor dog.
  3. Homemade blueberry preserves/jelly from the neighbor as a gift for not letting their plants die while they were on vacation.  AKA, I'm glad for rain.
  4. Dogs at work that aren't whiny.
  5. Toasted peaches smothered with honey butter and cinnamon sugar butter, topped with ice cream.
  6. Seeing a "busy" coworker streaming It's Always Sunny.  SUPPPPERRR busy.  Makes me feel less guilty for this post, right now.
  7. Friendship with great women.
  8. Realizing I've been retweeted (Thanks Allison).  It's like months late, but whatevs.
  9. Easily making an appointment for Yurtle's doctor appointment.
  10. Finally finishing this post, approximately 6 hours after I started it.  Ugh.


  1. I've been reading about the floods in Louisiana because I've been searching for the stories due to a friend of mine who lives there that drew my attention to it. Terrible.

    That Germany v. Brazil soccer match should be insane!

  2. The funnies had me cracking up. Especially the goat one. Can't wait to see the hue lights!

  3. I'm probably one of the few looking forward to your hue lights posts. I've purposely not googled them so I know nothing other than what you've mentioned about them.
    #7 screams YUM!
    Floods is Louisiana are devastating, I'm shocked there isn't more media coverage, frankly.

    Cheers to a good week my dear! xo

  4. Of course - no prob on the RT - loved that post. Alsooooo:

    -you're right, the coverage (or lack thereof) of the floods in LA is sickening - i only hear about it when someone posts on FB/Twitter who lives there
    -what a cute friendship story of you & "Teh MD-AR" - seeeee, being outgoing pays off.
    -all the LOLZ at the anesthesia thing
