Thursday Thoughts, Back Again...Shady's Back, Tell a Friend...guess who's back guess who's back guess who's back

1. This is the time of year I wish I was a teacher because my mind spends its summers on the beach. I haven't been in school for many years and it's still conditioned for a jail break in June.

2. Am I the only person not buying the tumblers with the wine glass inside? I don't get it. If I'm taking wine to go somewhere, obviously I want to utilize all the space in tumbler. Not just the Look how clever! I have a wine glass inside of another glass space. That's simply not enough space for wine to go. Whatever way you slice it, you're still drinking wine out of a plastic cup, so you might as well use the whole thing. I think I just peed on the wine tumbler parade.

3. Can the mustache obsession be finished now? They're played out, playah. I'm sick of seeing them everywhere on everything and in front of everyone's faces. The only place I want to see them now is on Ron Swanson. The End.
4. With the amount of times I mention or display Dunkin Donuts and its logo and products on my blog, twitter, facespace, and Instagram, you'd think I work for them. Do employees get free iced coffee? Just wondering.

5. I read the Sookie books before True Blood was on the horizon as a show on HBO. I knew the show would take different paths, and that was cool. But this Lilith Shit/Bill Compton is a god is just outer limits. I almost quit a few years ago - Bill is a wienerwhistle, Tara is a total annoying asshole who could've died many times but NOOOOO, Sookie is not as interesting as she is in the books...but the delicious Eric Northman and the kick ass Lafayette lured me back. I'm not sure if they're enough this season. Are you still watching? What do you think?
6. Currently reading: Pillars of the Earth. You?

7. Google Reader is in its final days. You can follow me on bloglovin' / Facebook / Instagram / Twitter to see new blog posts.

8. When was the last time Kanye West smiled? After impregnating the worst Kardashian, did he ever actually see her until after the baby arrived? Regardless of how assy both of them may be, I wish them and their child the best. Now move aside and let me talk to Lord Disick.
9. Ecard of the week, because I know my friends and I are not the only people who have conversations that constantly circle back to the topic of poop:
10. This Saturday I'll spend 24 hours at Relay For Life, walking for those I've lost to cancer, in support of those battling cancer right now, and to celebrate everyone who has beaten cancer. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. I've raised $1,365 so far. I'll be thinking of you and the people in your lives who have battled cancer as I walk my laps. There's still time to donate by clicking here if you're so inclined. If you are in the Fairless Hills area on Saturday, come check Relay out! It's Saturday 6/22 at 11 a.m. - Sunday 6/25 at 10 a.m.

And just like that, Thursday Thoughts is back, mofos. Shady's back. Tell a friend.

  1. Re. Number 1, I just realized I have either been a student or working at a university since I went to Kindergarten. So I have been living my life in school year time and summer vacation for the past 25 years. Yeah, never leaving academia!

    I just had a Twitter conversation about my dislike and confusion over the wine glass (I just can't call it the wine sippy cup, as others have been doing). I want wine in a proper glass, appropriate for the wine color I am drinking, NOT a plastic glass with a wine glass shoved inside.

    Kanye is just such a douche.

  2. totally on board with your wine glass sentiment...

    totally on board with your beach sentiment...

    and wondering what the deal will be when google reader closes its doors. like how, when, why, where, etc....

  3. Glad Thursday Thoughts are back.
    I sometimes tote wine or other alcoholic beverages in a covert container, like a gatorade bottle or iced tea bottle. Those wine things are foolish.
    I am reading non-fiction Supreme Influence- another positivity, affirmation type book. Reinforcement in this area is always good.
    Never got into the whole vampire thing.
    Had a beautiful day by the HOO yesterday and am treated to a post bday spectacular weather day.
    Happy and grateful. Summer is the absolute BEESKNEES#
    Enjoy it! Love your MOMMA

  4. That wine glass-tumbler is just weird. Now the wine glass on a chain, that you hang around your neck? Awesomesauce.

    So happy to have Thursday Thoughts back in my life.

  5. 1. Is that wine in your glass?
    2. I don't get it, either. Pee on the tumbler parade.
    3. Mustaches are the new chevron?
    4. One of my best friends from nursing school was a girl named Gopi. Her family owned many of the DD's around school, and every time we went, we got free stuff. It was amazing. Befriend someone who works there.
    5. I have never seen a minute of True Blood. By the way, did you say wienerwhistle?
    6. Madness by Marya Hornbacher
    7. Done, done, done and DONE
    8. All hail Lord Disick
    9. Awesome sauce
    10. So proud of you and so happy to give to such a wonderful cause!!!

  6. I didn't think about the wine glass sippy cup like that but now that you've said it, I agree! I also don't like where True Blood is headed. I'll probably continue watching just because I like to see a show till the end, UNLESS they kill off Eric. Then I'm done.

  7. Hahaha, I totally agree about that wine cup! I can't handle the whole Kim/Kayne dynamic, they're always going to be a hot mess to me. Good Luck this weekend!

  8. DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON TRUE BLOOD. they need to get rid of that stupid lilith/bill story line because it totally sucks ass and nobody gives a shit. if last season wasn't bullshit enough, i do NOT want to endure another whole season of this awfulness; they should've just let that whole thing die with the explosion of the authority building or whatever.

  9. completely agree with 2! and 3 also!

  10. 1. This time of year my job is amazing. I mean its totally not worth it to be a teacher for the 9 weeks off, but it is good.

    2. I don't like wine, but I have thought that exact same thing everytime I have seen that dumb cup.

    5. I'd like to get on the True Blood bandwagon. I've read the books and liked them. But I was never really invested, so I think I would like the show.

    6. Kanye is a d-bag.

    7. Poop is funny.

  11. I haters the wine tumblers too. I think if you're drinking out of plastic, just use your coffee tumbler or your kid's sippy cup. The whole point is not to spill it right? Cups already exist for that.

    I gave up on True Blood 2 seasons? or so ago. Eric is hot, but couldn't keep me coming back for more.

    Happy Thursday

  12. 1. I want summer vacation, too. I'd even be willing to push a drink cart up and down the beach all day.
    2. Wasted space. Cute, but just plain stupid. It's like people who say they need a wine rack. Really? I've never kept enough bottles around long enough to keep a rack for them. Unless I'm keeping the empties.
    3. Mustache be gone except for Ron's. Rock on, Ron! And I'm really over the douchebag beard.
    4. You should get a kickback from the DD.
    5. I hate vampires.
    6. I'm reading nothing at the moment. Does House Beautiful or SI count? I browse those (refer you to subject 10).
    7. I got you like a stalker.
    8. Kanye is so dumb...he's like...on dang, I can't remember what he said...but it was dumb!
    9. My BBF's and I have always had code word, Sammy (as in doo-doo snake), if someone needed to leave the current locale for a quick trip home. Doesn't everyone talk about poop?
    10. So proud of you! You rock!

  13. Lots to comment on, where to begin?
    1 - yes. I work at a school and it is so slow over the summer I wish they gave us extra vacation or four day work weeks. But no.
    2 - Okay, I kind of liked the idea of them because I am too lazy to go refill my glass and I drink white wine slowly so having it insulated would be a plus. BUT, you are right, couldn't I use a regular tervis instead? I guess this just a classy tervis?
    4 - my husband goes to DD at least twice a week and they make his coffee when they see him drive up but I don't think they have ever comp'd him one or upgraded for free. They should. Let's campaign for this.
    10 - Good luck this weekend! My friend did one last weekend and had lots of fun!

  14. HAHAHA, I totally don't get the wine in a tumbler thing EITHER! Just put your wine in your Tervis and there you go!

  15. THANK YOU i do not get the wine tumblrs. not one bit. can't stand them. omg.

  16. Congratulations on your fundraising. I know you'll rock the 24 hour relay!

    Welcome back, Thursday Thoughts!

  17. 1. yay for relay!

    2. TOTALLY agree about trueblood tings. Eric is too hot not to watch. and Lafayette is too hilarious. Also I really like Terry Bellfleur he cracks me up sooo much.

    yea I don't know about this whole Billith thing but I'm already over it

  18. My husband is a teacher, and I am so jealous that he gets to stay home during the summer.... Although I don't know how much relaxing he is doing, because he is home with our 4 and 3 YO.

    And I don't understand the wine glass tumbler either... Isn't it just a tervis?

  19. I never considered the wasted space in the wine tumbler. Such a good point!

    I would give anything for summer break again. And anything for teachers to shut up about having a summer break.

    Also, I love Kanye. I do. It is a real problem I have. One of my few faults, I'd say.

    I'm almost done with the past season of True Blood and ready to start the newest one. WHY DO I KEEP WATCHING? It is terrible, terrible. And I have 2 or 3 books to read to finish the series. Just tell me to stop!

  20. OMG #9! My best friend and my hubby. I feel like that's not a good thing haha. We also talk about farting waaaaaay more than any normal person should.

  21. I never heard of this wine glass ridiculousness. Isn't that what travel mugs are for? So glad Your Momma comments here, her posts make me laugh.


Tell me what you think, leave a comment! I'll reply to you via email if you have an email associated with yourself, otherwise, check back here for my reply. Thank you and good day. I SAID GOOD DAY.
