Friday Wrapup

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaack! And holy cow a lot has happened - it's a new year, there's 7-10 inches of new snow on the ground this morning, and.....I'm sure a bunch of other stuff is new, too. I'm not sure, you guys, it's Friday and I'm still working on my first cup of coffee. Work with me.


I just want to thank you all for continuing to read this blog as it goes into it's second full year (crazy!). Without you, who would I tell my underpants woes to? Well, other than CB who, as of this year, will be legally required to listen by the rules of marriage and stuff.

But seriously. Thank you! Now let's get to it.


You know those times in your life when everything falls completely into place and you just have a moment of "everything is as it should be"?

That moment happened earlier this week for me when I was sitting on the couch of one of my best friends. It was New Years' Eve morning, the rest of her family was at the park and we were sitting and catching up while she was feeding her brand new, four day old baby.

Me: "Wait, I'm so sorry to interrupt but I can't believe we haven't talked about Tori Spelling yet!"
Beth: "What? What about Tori Spelling?"
Me: "Did you hear about her and Dean?"
Beth: "No, I was giving birth! What happened?"
Me: "He cheated on her."
Beth: "Shut UP. Pull up the story immediately. I can't believe you've been here an hour and you're just telling me this."
Me: "See? This is why we've been friends for decades. We just get each other."

Also, we often apologize to our significant others that they ended up with us.

Moving on.


So I read a few books while I was home in the mitten and it was glorious. However, I haven't gotten around to blogging about them, but will get on the ball and back to normal next week. So stay tuned! I also believe I berated the rest of my family while I was home - as you do during the holidays - and so they should be updating as well and then it'll be a book bonanza! Whatever, we're nerds but we own it.


And now, the first Video of the Week of 2014!

This text exchange happened between CB and me last week:

Me: When I listen to Lionel Richie on Pandora, it makes me sentimental and weepy. But I just can't quit him.
CB: Don't be weepy....listen to 'Dancing on the Ceiling.'
Me: It's so nice to be understood. 
Need I say more? (except can we talk about that one blonde guy's hair? And, like, everything else that is happening in this video?)

Happy Friday, happy new year, I'll see you all next week!


  1. Dean is cheating on Tori? That's just whack. If he can't afford a vasectomy, then there's no way he can afford child support for a love child.

    Oh, that's right. I came here to wish you a Happy New Year from sunny Melbourne. It's going to be a wonderful year for us all.

    1. See, this is why I love my readers. You get me!
