Thursday Thoughts

1. I take too many pictures of my dogs, my feet, my nails, my drinks, the sky, food in general, and coffee, and I'm not planning to stop any time soon. For evidence of this extreme abuse of subjects: Instagram feed.
2. I also go to extremes with getting too many books out of the library at once. I will also not be stopping that. Currently reading...what are you reading?

3. I used to over-schedule weekends. Now I say no to people and have a happier life and don't feel like killing people as much. tra la la laaaaaaa. MFD still tries to over-commit us to things and I appear like the bad guy when I say no, but Honey Badger don't give a shit.
4. Who is watching The Vineyard? Worst most scripted show on television with the stupidest most vapid assholes on it, yet I still watch it. I have issues.
5. I have been in a Sopranos coma. I can't get enough even though this is my second time watching it. On to season three.

6. Reply all in an email that is not conversational or requiring any reply: why?

7. I waged war on Comcast this week and got our bill lowered by $50 a month. That will do until I get my ass in gear with streaming and cancel cable all together.

8. My mind is churning with my Fall To Do list. I guess that means I should complete everything on the Summer to Do list, hmm?

9. Guess what September is? Another spending freeze month. No unnecessary/non-budgeted spending. Look for another spending freeze diary of sin like this one and this one. I am embarking on this Stop Spending in September freeze with Marla from Luck Fupus. Would you care to join us? We're sharing our shit, i shouldn't have spent that diaries on October 1.

10. Ecard of the week. Truth.
Oh come on, ladies. God wouldn't have given you maracas if he didn't want to shake 'em. Go get it, Thursday.

  2. Ecards = perfect.

    I'm considering the September spending freeze. It makes a lot of sense with the new job situation and all. But seriously, if I could pull it off it would be nothing short of a miracle!

  3. Love the maracas quote, and your Instaconfessions! I post too many photos of food, for sure.

  4. I whole-heartedly agree with number 8. And number 7? Everyone I've ever met who has Comcast has had trouble with Comcast. That's the problem with those nationwide companies. My parents have it.
    We have DirecTV and I never go the cable route if I can help it. I was counting the days until we moved out of our last place so I could have DirecTV again lol.

  5. The vineyeard?!!?!? Never heard of it?! I love my trash tv. What's the deets?!

  6. Currently reading Assholes: A Theory and Turn Around Bright Eyes. I LOVE your Instagram feed so please don't stop.

    I am so looking forward to September. I can't even begin to describe the severity of our spending freeze. Moving has bled us dry. And just as soon as we are settled, I will be rewatching all of Prison Break and Friday Night Lights. So carry on with The Sporanos.

    And no more Comcast for us! It's not available where we're moving. Except now we have to deal with Verizon. So that should be fun.

  7. *Sopranos. I should not type on an iPad. Ever.

  8. Keep the pictures coming. I love them all. These phones continue to amaze me! Love the picture taking, I take pictures of recipes, schedules & they are in my phone forever ( I hope)!
    I have always loved September. Always wanted to get married in September, glad you did! What an epic, beautiful day we had! Forever grateful to the universe for that weather & stunning sunset. My upper body always gets cold going in the pool, so I put on a long sleeved, under Armor-type shirt. Perfect- my own wet suit. As it gets cooler, my wonderwears long pants will take care of the rest. Have a happy Thursday. We will sweat wicked at the Zumba tonight. Love your MOMMA

  9. BAHAHAHAAH! #3. That is totally me and I might be accused of being anti-social, but who cares?! I'm happy and that's all that matters. :)

  10. how are you watching the vineyard?! i watched the first episode and was like...nope this is terrible. hahaha

  11. I waged war on Comcast and Sirius a few weeks ago! Big savings!

  12. I need to follow your lead for Comcast. Seriously, I live alone and pay $180/month. That's absurd. Also, at least you take too many books out of the library. My kindle is jacked up with way too many books to be read!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love honey badger! I too am guilty of checking out way to many books at the library! I mentioned you in my blog today!

  14. chris and i have been trying to get back in sopranos since he passed but its even more sad this time around? we've made it to the second episode of the first season. i think we'll be at this for awhile :)

  15. I happen to be rather obsessed with your instagram feed, so keep it up. And that ecard could not be a more accurate description of my work life.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That ecard is my life right now. And my IG is food and my cat. It's cool.

  17. Oh man - totally ditched Comcrap a while ago.
    I would love to do the spending freeze, but mine month might be more of a spree. I mean the Bird's birthday is in October. One must prepare!!

    Good Luck next month! Can't wait to see how it goes!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Spending freeze???? Uh, that makes me cringe when I see those words!! LOL! Good luck, I have ZERO will power!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. funny! I just bought, as in yesterday, a bday card for my dad with the Honey Badget on it, and it said on the front "For your birthday from the Honey Badger" and on the inside, "Honey Badger don't give a shit" lol

  20. I have a confession...are you ready?

    I've never watched one single episode of the Sopranos.

    SHAME ON ME.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I always must have 10 books on hold from the library for my kindle and 10 books on my kindle from the library. If not, I get really anxious. True story. Before I had my Kindle, I always had about 20 books checked out from the library at a time. It is safe to say that my library hates me!

  22. There is no antibiotic for Comcast because that godforsaken company is a virus. Like herpes... never goes away.

  23. We bought a digital antenna and Roku box. We have no regrets other than wishing we had done it sooner!

  24. I am late to the party today. These frigging all day meetings are really screwing up my blog reading abilities.

    I am all in for no spend September. Things are out of control around here.

    Instagram doesn't bother me like Twitter and Facebook do. You can post 27 pictures of your dog and I wouldn't care. I just hate when people put a shit ton of hashtags on. I don't get it at all.

    I have a love/hate relationship with the Sopranos. Loved the show, hate it because I always watched it with the douche bag I was dating in grad school. What a fuckhead he was. Thanks for ruining Sopranos for me.

  25. Comcast is bad but so is Directv. I think it's just cable companies in general. I just had a war with Directv and got a free fancy DVR lol

    Being a bitch gets you palces sometimes!

  26. Love this post! I usually way over schedule the weekends and then end up grumpy about it! Oops. Replying to all in an email - totally erks me too! I don't need to know stop emailing me!! :) I am doing a no spend Sept. too.
