Thursday Thoughts

1. Guess what I've been doing this week? Coloring over my grays with this baby. For those of you who are new here, this is what I use to cover my grays in between hair appointments. Tonight is my hair appointment with the lovely Kristi at Sensational Scissors, so the brown sharpie can go away for another month.

2. Truth. Shared by my friend JIS last weekend.
3. My goddamn camera broke this weekend. It was less than a year old. Nikon S6500, you're dead to me. And just dead period. Luckily my fairy godmother Lori sent me a Canon Powershot as a bye bye birthday month gift.

4. Gwyneth Paltrow is not just a dick, she's a bag of dicks. Look, people have problems no matter how much money they have or what job they hold. That's a fact. But for her to say life is harder being a working movie star mom is ignorant. To start, Gwyneth: people other than movie stars work 14 hours a day. As for the rest, this response to Paltrow's bullshit ramblings on how much harder it is to be her is awesome. And googling images of GPal and coming up with this one made my day. hahaha

5. I stopped watching HIMYM years ago because they didn't produce the mother fast enough and because Ted Mosby is one of the most annoying characters of all time. So sayonara Mosby. Don't let the door hit you in the ass.

6. Were you guys Little House book fans when you were little? I remember devouring them. I'm joining Jana at The Townhouse Pioneer for the Little House Book Club. I am extremely jazzed to be reading these again. You don't need to be a blogger to participate in book club, there will be Facebook discussions of the books also. We're starting at the beginning with Little House in the Big Woods. Do you need a set of books? Enter to win one here.

7. Do you guys read Insert Classy Here? Steph transplanted from Minnesota to the NYC area for the year with her husband. It's totally cool to see someone make a move like that. I always think about how I'm such a northeast/east coast person and how I'm not suited to live somewhere else. It's something I like to muse over, and I really like seeing what they're doing as new east coasters. You should check her out.
8. You should read this. It only took me a few hours. And it broke my heart a few times.
9. I'm excited to shuffle off to Boston tomorrow morning to maid of honor it up for Kim's bridal shower! Pics will follow on Monday for TWTW post.
10. Do you follow Chris Meloni on Facebook? It amuses me. And whoever runs his account posts selfies of Benson & Stabler, which is a total win for me. I hope it's not him because there's some questionable apostrophe use and grammar.
11. Ecard of the week, thanks to Steph @ Not Entirely Perfect. I love quotes of all shapes and sizes but this made me laugh and laugh.
Tomorrow my main beeotch Gwen from Confessions of a Gila Monster will be here while I'm road tripping it up to Boston.

  2. I foolishly stuck with HIMYM. Oy.

    Have you watched Surviving Jack? I watched the first episode and I'll stick with it. I enjoy seeing Stabler in a comedy role.

  3. I stopped watching HIMYM too. I went back to it a few times, and just couldn't watch it anymore.

    Have fun in Boston and at the wedding! That is where Spencer and I honeymooned. :)

  4. the only good thing that came out of HIMYM was the slap bet. everything else was too over the top and over-acted. i can't do the sharpie thing otherwise i'd be standing there for a million years trying to get to all of my greys so i just box color!

    have fun in boston!!

  5. Hoooray for a fresh dye job! That alwayslifts my spirits. I haven't watched HIMYM in years, but I don't know why everyone is so up in arms. I'm still confused that Bob Saget narrated it. Gwyneth sucks. Ugh.
    Have fun in Boston! <3

  6. I thought I was the only one who hated Ted! I stopped watching after season 1, way back when, because he is definitely an overdramatic little girl. I could never get behind that show…
    Speaking of hate, I've been saying Gwyneth is self-obsessed and crazy for years. No one ever believed me. I'm glad her nutso ideas are finally being recognized. Little House book club?? Sign me up! I just did a Big Woods novel study with my class this winter. It prompted several of them to continue the series. They love it!

  7. Not to mention that our pal Gwynnie has movie star parents and was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. She's horrible. I like Ted Mosby, but agreed, I gave up on the show forever ago because it just got old.

  8. Gwyneth -ugh. Really. I tweeted to Liz(The Blacklist producer- we follow each other- love Twitter) that Caroline Kennedy grew up with uber wealth and fame. Gwyneth, ugh times 50 million. Only watched HIMYM while sitting waiting to get my haircut. Goddess speed for safe & sound travels and a wonderful shower-time with Kim S. See you later- alligator!
    Love your MOMMA

  9. It's supposed to be gorgeous in Boston this weekend. Good time to come up.
    I'm angry about the end of HIMYM. Which probably means I was way too invested in a stupid TV show.
    And Meloni is a lovely man. Really, the universe knew what they were doing there. I'm annoyed at how under-used he ended up being on True Blood.

  10. Have fun in Boston!!!!!! :D WATCH FOR POTHOLES!
    The Sharpie trick is my new fave root trick.
    Little House is the shit... you bet your ASS I entered that giveaway.
    I quit HIMYM for the EXACT same reasons!

    ReplyDelete
  11. 1. Might have to start doing this as well.
    2. Stealing this for my post tomorrow!
    4. Gwenyth is this biggest piece of shit ever. I disliked her to begin with and after she said that it made me dislike her even more.

    Have a good weekend in Boston!

  12. Poor GPal... I am so blessed not to have such a difficult life! Have fun in Boston!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Haha, I totally stuck through with HIMYM just for the finale, which made me ball and also pissed me off, lol. I'm sorry about your camera :(

    ReplyDelete
  14. man you're the best. i never watched HIMYM bc it just bugged me. i just didn't get it. i wish i could color my hair with a sharpie. that is awesome. gwyneth is a bag of dicks, very well put. i want to read that book, i looked it up after you posted int on insta!

    ReplyDelete
  15. The sharpie trick is kind of genius. I never would have even thought about that- but so simple and brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ugh Gwyneth has always been such a pain, she's always had everything so she has no clue about the real world. But why doesn't she have someone, a publicist or whatever, to keep her from saying such asinine things??? Isn't that their job?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Gwyneth is a bag of dicks!!!! Best words ever. I heard that shit the other day and I was like man...she is so out of touch with reality. Gee, I am so sorry your life is so hard with all that money. UGHHHHHHHH!

    Your sharpie trick is brilliant!

    I loved Little House!

    That sucks balls about your camera :(

    Have fun in Boston!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love me some Meloni, from way back in the Oz days when he was a baddie. Have an awesome time in Boston!

    ReplyDelete
  19. What a great post! Does the sharpie really work on your hair; if so that's probably one of lifes greatest hacks! So true with the quote about the past. It's the past for a reason. And now I'm gonna have to go check out that facebook page, love me some Stabler and Benson.

  20. Gwyneth is a spoiled rotten stuck up bitch. She can call it conscious uncoupling all day but it's still a regular old divorce.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ugh actors that think that way make me sick. That's almost as bad as when Tom Cruise said his job was just as hard if not harder than a soldiers job.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love the sharpie idea... genius!

    I so wanted to give up on HIMYM years ago for the same reasons you mentioned above, but I felt too invested and stuck with it until the awful ending :-P

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for the shout out. We are starting to plot out our summer adventures and I can't wait to get back to Philly. Have fun in Boston. That is my favorite city and hopefully my future home :) G Pal is a bitch, but I do like her as Pepper in Iron Man... oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have never ever watched HIMYM. Added the book to my reading list (as I do with all of your recommendations). Hope you have a fantastic trip this weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I audibly giggled at your HIMYM sentiments. Because I feel the exact same way. I got bored to death after about 2 seasons, plus you're 100% correct in saying Ted Mosby is one of the most annoying characters on all of television. I heard the finale was pretty ridiculous, so I'm not sorry I dropped it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I was so not on board with HIMYM. I'm not good with sitcoms in general, but that one I never liked. And don't EVEN get me started on Big Bang...

    Does the sharpie wash out?!? I'm so curious about this. You need to send me a pic next time you do it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I binge watch HIMYM so I am behind a season. It's not my favorite show, but it's good for the summer when nothing is on. But I agree. Ted Mosby is the worst character EVER. And Gwyneth. I can't even. I used to like her. Really. Thought she was awesome. Had a cute little family. Staying with her husband. No respect for her at this point. Some things should be kept within your friend or family circle, not magazines and articles.

  28. I need to try that Sharpie thing. My grays are out of control right now.

    Gwyneth just bugs me. She always has. Ugh. I can't take anyone seriously who names their kid Apple.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I need (or don't need) to catch up on the Gwyneth drama. But from here, I would much rather be a movie star who can afford chefs and nannies and private jets to make time with my kids easier than just a regular person trying to do it all. I hope you have a great time in Boston!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just had my greys touched up on Monday! sigh. I don't have enough but there are now just enough that I need to regularly get them dyed since my hair is so dark. ugh. and Gwyneth paltrow IS the worst (despite my comment on my blog today about my mom using her cookbook). i was just talking with someone about how she preaches all this healthy living but apparently smokes too? i don't care about whatever people do but she definitely has an annoying "holier than thou" air about her. ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Eleanor & Park was awesome. Gwyneth is seriously THE WORST HUMAN on the planet. Gosh. I love that you're coloring your hair with a marker--and that past pic is totally right!

    ReplyDelete
  32. So, I have a bachelorette this weekend too. Will we be running into each other toting penis straws all over Boston?

    ReplyDelete
  33. You are genius! I've been using cocoa powder dusted in my hair to cover grays and roots in between colors. Never would have thought of sharpie! I've gotta steal this idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Paltrow is an idiot. she has no idea what real-life moms do. for one, most don't have the money to hire a nanny and what not. it's all on them. whereas she could easily do that and probably did. agh, why must people be stupid?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am spoiled by not having to color my hair yet, and it's a good thing. I'd totally end up with Sharpie all over my forehead. Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  36. To be fair, I think Ted got less annoying in the later seasons because he realized that life was not so much a fairy tale. Anyway, do you already have a post about the sharpie touch ups? Because I feel like that deserves its own post. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. HIMYM was dropped by me when Lilly got pregnant. I could not take Ted anymore and there was some really out their story lines. See Ya. The Little House in Big Woods picture took me back. That said I am not buying it to read & my library (small rural town who you would expect to have this book) will not have said book. I think Gpal had a stroke what other reason could there be for saying something so ridiculous? Have so much fun this weekend, safe journey.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've never liked Gwyneth Paltrow...I won't even watch a movie with her in it because I can't stand her face!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Gwyneth Paltrow needs to stop talking - like forever. Every time she opens her mouth she shows how out of touch she is with "regular people". Does she not have PR people coaching her?!

    ReplyDelete
  40. i am sure i have grays i just havent found them, but when I do my cheap ass will def be using the sharpie trick. and ted and gwen are both huge bags of dick.
