Confessions: A Goose in the Night

Is it almost the end of August already? How does this happen every time? I’m hoping that signals some cooler weather, ’cause I was baking like a sweet potato tot today. Time for a few confessions…

A lot of people hit snooze on their alarms, but I don’t know how they do it. If I am conscious enough to hit snooze on my iphone, I am turning that thing off so it cannot disturb me again. If Greg and I both have to get up, I ask him to set his a little later in case I turn mine off while I’m sleeping.

I was lurking on Craigslist today. Okay, I was lurking in the PETS section of Craigslist today, like I always do, and saw pot belly pigs for sale. I would like to adopt a tiny pig, but our apartment is too small.

The geese at my work are traveling in packs. You don’t want to find yourself alone near one. Once, while I was leaving work and it was dark, I walked too close and a goose started hissing at me. Almost pooped my pants.

I would rather do dishes than laundry any day. I put laundry in, forget about it for two days, then am mad at myself when I have to rewash it. And that’s why Greg handles alllllll the laundry.

Linking up with Kathy for Humpday Confessions this week. Have a great Hump Day!

Confessions: Walking Normal

Yesterday’s post was a confession all on it’s own, but I’m back to my regular confessions.

I get really annoyed when I can’t eat something because it’s not vegan. Obviously, I can’t have that big bowl of queso (boo), but why are you adding milk products to my tortilla chips, Tostitos?

If you see me reading a book in my car, you should probably not walk next to my window and start talking to me. I cannot get any private moments at work…before work… on break at work. I want to finish my book!! I would love to talk to my coworkers at work, but it’s kind of alarming when someone pops up next to my window.

On the topic of yesterday’s post, when I’ve had just a small drink or two at a restaurant and suddenly I have to stand up to leave, I try to walk as normal as possible so no one notices the party in my head.

 Brave is my favorite new Disney movie. I don’t know if it’s the Scottish accents, but I love watching it every time it’s on TV. It is sweet and I cried the first time I watched it in theaters. Now, it just makes me laugh.

Speaking of Disney movies, I have a bunch of Disney songs on my Spotify playlist, and will sing a long to all of them, especially if they are a Disney villain song – those are my favorite.

I like to stay busy at work. If it gets slow, I try to occupy myself without going online since we aren’t allowed. Luckily, there’s usually something to do all day.

Creepy Vampire Baby & Ikea

It’s one of my favorite days of the week – Humpday Confessions, and it means we are that much closer to the weekend. I am already dreaming about Chipotle Friday. At least I’m halfway there. This week feels so much longer after working all weekend.

Greg and I “need” a few things at Ikea, and I’m way more excited than any one person should be to look for a dish drying rack. We hardly ever get to go, so it’s a shopping adventure.

Greg sat through watching 4 Twilight movies with me a couple weeks ago. It all started when he called me in to the living room to watch one of my favorite scenes in the first movie, where he looks at her like she’s a hamburger.

Then we kept watching and I insisted on not changing the channel, because we might as well watch the next one, and the next one. I don’t know what madness controls me, but I enjoyed every bit of it.

Can we please get Robert Pattinson in more movies? Because the actors from the newest teen movies are not nearly as entertaining as this guy.

I am super hungry the past couple days. I’m dreaming of pizza and Chipotle chips. I just want to eat all the salty, cheesy, delicious food. Need some vegan junk food!! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to do a full grocery trip this week, so I have to eat all the healthier leftovers in the fridge first. Is this hormones? PMS? I don’t care, I just want some nachos.

Have a great Wednesday! Linking up with Kathy @ Vodka and Soda.

One More Episode

This week’s Hump Day is even better than usual, because my work week ends on Thursday. So far, I have zero plans for the Fourth, except I want to see some freakin’ fireworks! Time to get into some confessions…

I realized my Game of Thrones episodes were leaving OnDemand on 7/1, so I finished watching the last 6 episodes of season 4 within 24 hours. It was a great night / morning.

Speaking of HBO, my efforts turned out to be needless, anyway, because I caved and subscribed. I mean, HBO Go is too hard to resist, and the talk about True Blood lately has me wanting to go back and rewatch so I can catch up. Even though I know I’m gonna be over the crazy fairy stuff, don’t care. The other parts of the show are worth it. Just kidding, I like Sookie, even when Bill says, “SOOKEH.”

Remember the lovely peplum tops I posted about from J. Crew Factory? I bought three, because they were having a huge sale, and I sent them all back today. They were WAY too big. It looked like I was wearing a bag – has anyone else had this problem with J. Crew Factory sizes?

Have you ever seen this movie? Don’t watch it. Greg had to change the channel because I was crying too much to eat my bean burger. The crying where your face is all squished and sad and your throat closes up and there’s a lot of snot involved. This is a Disney movie??? Do they want the children to be sad?? It probably had a happy ending, but I was not prepared for this treachery, Disney.

On the bright side, something you should watch is Transformers: Age of Extinction. It was by far the best Transformers movie I’ve seen. This one was actually funny, and I recognized the actress as the girl from Bates Motel. It’s awesome if you want to see Mark Wahlberg do Mark Wahlberg things.

Robot Dinosaurs and Peplum Tops

Here we go, it’s time to confess some things I’ve pretended not to do but definitely, for sure did:

SLEEP: My weekend did not get a post this week, because all I did was work and fall asleep at 8:30 PM on a Saturday night. Three hours of sleep and I’m out, daylight or no daylight. I was falling asleep watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (don’t worry, we finished it later and it was adorable), and Greg told me it was bedtime and dragged my butt to bed.

SHOPPING: As soon as I saw that J Crew Factory was having an extra 40% off clearance sale, it was like I blacked out and woke up with an order confirmation in my inbox. But I found this lovely peplum top, plus about seven other things.

FOOD: I usually eat heart-healthy Honey Nut Cheerios or Trader Joe’s organic cereal when I come home at night, but for the past week, I’ve been eating Lucky Charms, and have enjoyed every minute of it.

BUNNY WATCHING: I was sitting in my car outside work the other night, and an adorable bunny rabbit sat right outside my door. I tried to take a picture, and of course it ran away. Bunny picture taking fail. We met but once, bunny, but I will not forget you, may we meet again.

MOVIES: There are a ton of movies coming out or already out that I want to see this summer, and I even want to see Transformers: Age of Extinction. I am not a fan of any of the previous movies, but for some reason I have hope in this one. I think Marky Mark can make anything better.

Clean ALL The Things

I have been waiting to get some things off my chest, so let’s get into some Humpday Confessions…

I like most of my coworkers, but some of them drive me crazy. I work evening shift, so I have to wait for the day shift to leave before I can take over our desk, and they left late today. I was already feeling inexplicably angry because my hormones do what they want, but then when I get to my desk, there are pen marks all over it. I want to ask this guy, “You are a full grown adult, how the hell do you write all over the desk every day????” I always have wet wipes at work so I can wipe their mess down.

I am not that much of a neat freak at home, but at work, I keep it as clean as possible. I hate when other people leave a mess behind, or leave everything disorganized. I like my work shit to be organized!! It would be nice if they could please not leave behind a trail of destruction…

Speaking of hormones, we watched Les Miserables over the weekend, and during the movie I was fine, but after it ended and Greg left the room..

So after bawling for 10 seconds, I was fine again. Thank you, body.

Les Miserables was good, but not my favorite kind of movie. There was a LOT of singing. I know, it’s a musical, and I like some musicals. But I really can’t run around my house singing Les Miserables songs without sounding a little ominous. Not like that time we watched Footloose. Yep, you can bet my husband had to deal with a lot of singing after that one.

I suck at saving money this month. After some unexpected expenses, I am in need of saving! But I am also in need of checking Forever 21’s new arrival page daily.

Humpday Confessions

Happy Humpday confessions day! Let’s get down to it…

Sometimes I eat Chipotle twice in one week. It’s my vegan paradise, with extra guacamole.

I finally watched Frozen, and I love singing Let It Go. There was a little girl at the Spartan Race singing it Sunday, and I wanted to join in, but probably would have been weird.

I got stuck in traffic today, but it was kinda my fault. My husband texted me earlier in the day to let me know that I would have to take a different way to work, because they closed down part of the interstate I take due to the bridge not passing inspection and having the possibility of collapsing. Seems like something I would remember, right? Nope. Got stuck in the detour traffic and was late to work. Why can’t I remember things??

Bought this shit. Ate this shit. It’s delicious. I love guacamole and hummus, and together they make super delicious food.

I still check the backseat of my car when I get into it after leaving work at night. Because there could be a lurker. Or a panther.

I like to pee alone, and I judge public places based on their bathrooms. Are they clean? Is there music playing in the background? Why don’t all places play music in their bathrooms? No one really wants to listen to other people pee and fart that much. The more private the bathroom, the better. Props to those places with big stalls with doors that reach almost to the floor. That is one classy bathroom.

Linking up with Kathy today! Have a fantastic Wednesday.
