Thursday Thoughts

1. Today is my Geege's 10th birthday. Geege, your mom needs you to live about 50 more years just as you are now, okay? Okay. Happy birthday buddy. All the dogs will be eating leftover prime rib tonight, special birthday treat left by Treat Lady.
2. This month is Osteoporosis Awareness & Prevention Month. Click here for 15 tips for preventing osteoporosis, including drinking your milk, eating your greens, and incorporating weights into your exercise regimen. Did you know:

3. I really like The Americans, and I really like that the married Russian spies are apparently dating in real life. Forgive my tardiness commenting on this, I'm behind in my trashy magazines.
4. Books I've tried reading in the past month and put down after page 50 - I give all books up to page 50 to have a chance. After that, if I'm not invested, they're dunzo and I move on to the next one. It's weird - I've read other books by these authors or other books similar to these books. They just didn't click for me.
5. My nomination for Asshole of the Week. Peggy Olsen, you're better than this. You lost your goddamn mind with the Valentine's Day flowers and you're still being an asshole. I'm annoyed you've let Ted and men in general throw you so off your game. Get your shit together.

6. We had a great treat this week - Lori came down Tuesday, bought us dinner, and hung out with us for the night. She also cleaned my bathroom before she left. I really wish you all had a Lori. She makes my life easier, better, funnier, and much more fun.
7. If you don't know about this, please educate yourself. The world is finally waking up to this reprehensible act. #bringbackourgirls
8. Tuesday night MFD and I were laying in bed talking around 11. I looked at prices to fly to Chicago because we'd talked about going there. Within an hour I had booked a hotel and flights. Who am I, booking trips wantonly without researching it to within an inch of its life? Chicago, we'll see you Labor Day for MFD's birthday weekend.

9. Local friends, Hank & MFD are playing at The OT in Langhorne on Friday night. I think they start around 8. If you're looking for something to do, maybe I'll see you there?
10. Ecard of the week:
Summer Things Giveaway! My favorite Essie polishes for summer are part of the package.

  1. So much good in the post! Happy Birthday Geege! I want guests to come over and clean before they leave!! Chicago is so fun, you'll have a great time! We make fun of hashtags but sometimes it really can make a difference! Education is a right everyone should freely have without fear.

  2. I've seen An Abundance of Katherines on the library shelves since 2009 (I know it was our first year in Alaska, but coulda been 2010), and it's never looked that appealing to me. I don't understand why it's always RIGHT THERE IN THE FRONT.
    "Treat Lady". I love that. Happy Birthday Geege!
    The Americans is on my to-watch list.
    And Peggy is incredibly unlikeable.

  3. Happy birthday Geege! I think Geege is immortal, like Leo, and will live forever. I love Chicago; it is so close to us, but we haven't been in awhile. So much good shit to do and food to eat. Do you do the deep dish pizza? So different than East Coast pizza, but so effing good.

    I tend to book trips on a whim often. So unlike me. Yesterday I almost booked a trip to go see my mom in Florida; non-stop to Tampa was only $218. Then I realized I would be 37 weeks pregnant and can't fly anymore. Womp womp. Thanks kid.

  4. Seriously, most photogenic dog ever!! Happy birthday!

  5. Aww double digits for Geege! Happy Birthday! I love how he waits for you at the door.

    When my sister comes over she always does my dishes. I'd love it if she'd clean my bathroom but that's a bit too much for her.

  6. Aw, Geege! I love all the pictures.

    I had no idea about Felicity and Kevin Walker! I feel that I've failed. Also, I think I'll be binge watching The Americans this weekend - I'm way behind.

    I despise milk, so I'm convinced I'll be getting osteoporosis.

  7. I love Geege in his glasses! Hurray for Chicago! I went once, in January. I would love to go back when it isn't frigid. I had no idea about the people on The Americans but is it bad that even though I know he's an actor, I will always think Matthew Rhys is gay because he was on Brothers and Sisters?

  8. Happy bday to the pup! You'll love Chicago. It is such a fun city. I went April 2012 for a Red Sox game and did every single tourist thing so read my posts for ideas!!

  9. Happy Birthday Geege! I can't believe your friend cleaned your bathroom! I wish my visitors would do that, or at least not leave it 100% messier than when they got here! (I'm looking at you, in-laws!!)

  10. Happy birthday, Geege!

    An Abundance of Katherines is on my to read list. Now I am nervous.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Happy Birthday, Geeg! I say the same thing about my Gigi, "please live to be 50." Ugh, I have been waiting to watch Mad Men until Jason is done with this semester, since it is one of the few shows we watch together. The suspense is killlllling me. I need to watch The Americans.

  13. Happy Birthday Geege! And YES YES YES to #5...Peggy really needs to get her shit together. I don't like it. Not one bit!

  14. Agree on all of our furry pets being with us til we go. The consolation is we will see them on the other side! Geege is our little superhero. Ever since you put him in that Spiderman outfit that one Halloween, He takes that role seriously. Always on patrol. Our Lori is a tremendous blessing. We are so lucky!
    Looking forward to our Mother's Day hanging poolside. Love, Your MOMMA

  15. Chicago! How fun!! We just recently booked flights for the weekend after Labor day which is K's birthday! lol Haven't found a hotel yet. Any recommendations?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love that you just up and bought a trip for yourselves. Taking treat yourself to a whole new level. Also, Happy Birthday to Geege.

  17. Happy Birthday, Geege!!!! I just want to squirsh his little puggy face he is so cute!

    I am like you, if I can't get into a book..I will quit. I mean....there are so many books to read and so little time. Why waste time on one that isn't for you?!

    That is so awesome you booked a trip to Chicago! I have always wanted to go! Maybe one day....

    I signed up for this daily email called "The Skimm" where it tells you stuff like what is going on with the kidnapped girls, things in Syria, the Ukraine and other important information. I like it and feel like I don't miss out on anything important and get all the news everyday minus all the bullshit.

    ReplyDelete
  18. OMG on the kidnapped girls. Last night on the news right here in Deptford, NJ a man was arrested for human trafficing. And Atlantic City is a prime spot,too. What the hell!
    Goddess speed for all to be safe and sound with no suffering and shoot all the traffic-ers in their crotch and let them bleed to death.
    Love your MOMMA

  24. Happy Birthday Geege, prime rib is my favorite you lucky dog!

    Chicago sounds like a fun birthday trip.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Awww Happy Birthday Geege - that picture of him in the glasses is amazing! And for a little dog like him, 10 is not that old. I hope everyone enjoys their treats!
    I'm on a search for an Ohio Lori.
    Chicago is one of my favorite places. Have you never been there before??

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy 10th Birthday Geege. You make my life happier because you are part of it. I love being Treat Lady and that I have the power to make life a little easier.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The Americans is such a good show! I was pleased to read the actors were dating as well.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yay for spur of the moment trip booking! Y'all are going to LOVE Chicago!! Happy Birthday Geege!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh I love spontaneous trips! That's how we used to "plan" our trips every time. Now it's a little harder. Have fun in Chicago! We go there fairly often, being only 5-6 hour drive away.

    ReplyDelete
  30. That is awesome you are going to Chicago on a whim!! We have a trip booked for July (along with another couple) I am SO excited. I actually recently learned I like to travel with others (as long as they are food folks) because than we can try twice the number of dishes (and b/c friends are good-but mostly the food) ;) I've been really disliking Peggy this season. Happy Belated Birthday to Geege!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just watched this week's Mad Men last night. Peggy!!! I wanna smack her across the face. An Abundance of Katherines was John Green's worst book, by far!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm so pumped you're coming to Chicago :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEEGE!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I want to go to Chicago! (or, as my dad called it, "chicken in the car and the car won't go")

    ReplyDelete
  34. I didn't know The Americans were dating in real life- love it!

    I booked a Chicago trip last week too- mine is happening the first weekend in August.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Happy belated Birthday Geege. And ugh to osteoporosis. Runs in my family so I get to have my scan done early. WOooo... NOT. Take your calcium ladies. And I think those spontaneous trips are the best. Chicago will be awesome!
