Thursday Thoughts

1. I had dinner with my oldest friend on Tuesday. Jen and I have been friends for 33 years. It's pretty cool to be friends with someone who's not related to you for that much of your life.

2. This week started out like poop soup. Between Monday & Tuesday: caught in rain without umbrella, left phone at home, tub clogged resulting in meltdowns by me and MFD, glass frame shattered, humidity as if Satan put us on blast, scolded loudly by librarian like I was a child, dogs extra smelly.

3. Speaking of smelly...we've had Gus for nine years and Geege for seven or eight. Sometimes the house would smell when it was humid or rained, but nothing too bad and it went away with some Febreze. Now that Mae has arrived, it smells like dog all the MFing time! She's cute but she reeks. It's time for Odoban to work overtime.
4. I think it would be great if parents around the land could calm their collective tits in some areas and give their 2014 kids a 1970s summer like they suggest here. If you look at the comments, you'll see some people have their heads so far up their asses that they didn't get the real message of the piece, which was not for you to take every word verbatim, but for you to lighten up in general. Now be quiet, The Love Boat is on.

5. Like Nadine, I have no idea what turn down for what means, and I don't care. OLD LADY STATUS.

6. Philly friends, do you do First Friday? It's pretty cool. Click here to check out this post on it from Rachel at You Can't Google Everything.

7. Have you messaged your sunglass selfie to Jenn's Vision yet? What are you waiting for? Show your support and get the word out about eye protection at the dentist! Here's me & MFD for Jenn's Vision. We took our selfie in the car because Jenn and her family excel at the car selfie.

8. Happy happy birthday weekend to one of my BFFs Michelle. I hope it's fabulous and that Sunday is a dream celebration of your birth. I love that when I hand Michelle a camera or phone, I know I'll always get a selfie in addition to the picture she was taking in the first place. xoxo
9. Dear SEPTA: If you strike I will lose my shit. So in your meeting tomorrow, FIGURE IT OUT. I'm still not over the 2-3 hour wait for a train in 2009. RAGE.

  1. Wet dog smell is enough with one dog I can't imagine with three pups! I remember the summers where us neighborhood kids would bike and play outside all summer and only came in for summer! It was awesome, way to many helicopter parents these days though I understand the world has changed. Loosen up! Thanks for the reminder I need to take a sunglasses selfie!

  2. Lion King is an understatement. Seriously, can it stop raining and be a normal humidity level ONCE this week?

  3. Rage train! That reminds me of that Murder Train song from How I Met Your Mother. I hope they get something worked out... it doesn't seem right that a small group of employees can bring the whole city to a standstill.

  4. Mae!!!! Her cuteness makes up for her stink, right? So much cute in a little dog I cant stand it!

    LOL that ecard!!! UGHHHHHH We all need a miracle hair product ASAP! It has rained here every MFing day for at least two weeks now. I just give up.

    After yesterdays post, I learned there are several people that had no clue what turn down for what meant. A few were still in their twenties, so maybe we aren't as old as we think!

  5. Leaving your cell at home is the WORST on work days. I however am all for it on the weekend :))). Mae looks so dang cute, even if she is smelly.

  6. Praise Allah that you CAN be the Lion King. That means lots of hair! Oh Mae! she is so STINKIN cute LOL.

  7. Add me to the what does "turn down for what" mean club. I have no idea and I'm not really sure if I want to. Or care to.

    I have that 1970s post bookmarked because I'm totally going to do some of it for my daughter. She might hate me but I don't care. Mommy needs to be entertained, too.

  8. Spray your pups with lavendar oil! Makes smell great and makes them calm... win, win

  9. Happy Birthday Michelle. Yep sometimes there is just dog smell. That said Mae get it under control. 70's childhood...I remember being bored at times but I was bored outside because we were not allowed to come back in lol.

  10. I cant even imagine the outrage that will follow if there is a SEPTA strike! I love that Cosby meme "for whaaat?" made me laugh! Thanks for the shout outs!! :)

  11. That e-card is on my funnies board on Pinterest, because I swear I look like a lion in the humidity! I have no idea what we're turning down for either, but that damn song is catchy.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I hate strikes. And the people on both sides of them. Y'all have ONE JOB TO DO. Do it! Figure it out together and stop throwing giant collective tantrums like you're still 5. You're adults.

  13. LOL the only reason I know why half of those things, like turn down for what, mean is because I teach seniors. Even then most of the time I stare at them like what in the world are you talking about?!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I had to google turn down for what, too. I never questioned it til yesterday (it basically means to drink and party til your face falls off. Thanks, urban dictionary). With Mae's face, you have to forgive her stink. And I hope they figure their shit out with SEPTA - we need your stories!

    ReplyDelete
  15. ohh they better not strike. that's bullshit. i will get on the rage train with you. dog smell. i am experiencing this as I type. being friends with someone for such a long time is the coolest thing, you grow together through the years and not a lot of people have that!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't know what turn down means either and I am scared to google! I hope your second half of the week is less poop soup and more margarita madness.

    ReplyDelete
  17. OMG the humidity is something else ive been rocking a puffy pony tail all week.
    IDK what turn down for what means either but that shiz is my jam!

    ReplyDelete
  18. "poop soup" lol. that is hilarious. I'm sorry things have been so rough. That just means you need to have a nice, relaxing weekend to make up for it ;-) It's been so freaking humid here too. Tuesday night it rained, and as I was walking out of the gym, I could barely breathe it was so damn sticky. Lion King mane is in full effect here.

  19. I'm a rap music loving broad, so I love me some "Turn Down for What." And, I understood what it meant because I try to use the phrase, and to generally be, "turnt up" as much as humanly possible.

    I do what I want.

  20. A librarian scolding is the worst, I never talk in the library if I can help it.

    I want to give myself a 1970's summer, screw the kids!

  21. haha poop soup sounds about an apt description for my entire week. Seriously best description evah

  22. holy shit it's been SO busy at work for me this past week i hardly have time to shit. but i visited your blog because you're one of my favs, obvs.

    strikes are the WORST. when our GO train went on strike, getting downtown was a fucking mess and half the city stayed home. i hope they don't strike!!

    ugh fuck more work email. goddamn, this PM needs to calm her fucking tits already.

  23. Johnny Cakes is super smelly. We call him "sour head" b/c for some reason his head always has this weird sour smell. Our apartment doesn't smell like it but my pillows do b/c that's what he likes to lay on all the time! haha
    I hope you told that whore of a librarian to shut her fucking pie hole.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love that e-card. My hair SO does that.

    Sorry you were scolded by a librarian. Ack.

  25. Happy Birthday to Michelle!

    And yeah, I totally just Googled "turn down for what."

  26. One of my biggest fears is a house that smells like dog. In fact, when my pet-disliking mother came to visit, the first thing I asked was if the house smelled like dog. She said no and I know she was telling the truth because I have a feeling she considered a hotel before staying with us lol. She didn't appreciate that 6am wakeup call from Scout.
    I use Febreze too. All. the. time.

  27. We've had strikes with the civilians on post, and it's putting us behind for Will's schooling! I'm especially mad because these people make GREAT money and are being super greedy. So frustrating!

  28. I read that 70's summer post earlier this week...spot on. Staying outside until the street lights came on was my definition of summer. And in my house on Saturday night, we had baked beans and hot dogs for supper, my mom watched Lawrence Welk, then something at 8 (I can't remember), Love Boat and then Fantasy Island. I remember like it was yesterday. Here's to a groovy summer of fun. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha! That ecard! I read and loved that 70s summer article and didn't even notice the comments. I'm not going back to read them. Calm down, people!
