There is this thing I’ve seen a lot of recently called “Ask Me Anything!” and lots of very cool people do it, and y’all, I want so badly to be cool. So…..
ASK ME ANYTHING Y’ALL!
For real. Ask me anything you want to know. I’ll answer you. I might not give you a straight answer, because, you know that’s not usually how I roll, but by the same token, maybe I will. Who knows? Anything is possible! That’s science.
I realize I’m not nearly cool enough to be doing this, but I have hopes that someday I will be cool enough to do an AMA and then it will already be done. This is what they call preparation y’all. I’m a cool prepper. Always prepping for someday when I’ll be cool.
About once a month or so, I’m going to use this post to share what I’m loving right now. It’s not really about me, it’s about the things I’m loving. And I would love to know what you’re loving. (And now I have McDonald’s ba da ba da da I’m lovin it, stuck in my head)
I just started reading The Devil In The Shape of a Woman and so far, I’m into it. I’m a big fan of non-fiction and ever since I starred (had an itsy-bitsy tiny part in) The Crucible in High School, I’ve been interested in this topic.
BUT I just finished Miss Peregrine’s School For Peculiar Children and IT WAS SPECTACULAR. I am having a very difficult time in waiting for the second book to come out in January because I need to know what happens NOW. And by now, I mean yesterday.
There are two things I can’t get enough of right now. Muddy Waters and Shinyribs.
The one and only thing I’ve thought about North West (Kim and Kanye’s kid), is that I really hope that when she turns 11, she pulls a real North (like the movie) and sues her parents and then has two months to either find new parents or live with the ones she’s got. Spoiler alert – she’ll realize in the end how much she loves Kim and Kanye and how much she wants them to keep being her parents.
Remember how I used my sweet math skills and love of gin to overcome my fear of flying? Well, there may have been a slight flaw in my math. Shocking, I know. The variable I failed to consider was work trips. I dont have to take them often so it’s an understandable oversight, right? Regardless, I am flying to NYC today and heading straight for a work event as soon as I land and I’m guessing the smell of gin on my breath might send a bad message. My genius failed to account for this. So, anyone else have any bright “conquering your fear” type thoughts? An odor-less gin recipe perhaps?
Kale and bacon are the yin and yang of my diet.
You know when you see a shirt that you really like and you want to buy? And then you see a complete asshat wearing the same shirt? So, you don’t buy it because you don’t want to have the same style as an asshat?
I hate it when that happens. Why can’t all asshats just dress badly? Oh right, because they are asshats and want to ruin things for the rest of us.
Austin City Limits (ACL) is coming up in less than a month and it’s got me thinking. They should make an ACL shirt that says “The Hill Country Is Alive With The Sound of Music.”
Because, it’s like “The hills are alive with the sound of music” from The Sound Of Music, but you add “country” in there because we’re in the hill country. And also it’s a music festival.
I should get paid for this.
Every time I say ”Stop” my brain automatically thinks “collaborate and listen.” Which I think is a testament to Vanilla Ice’s continued relevance.
I’m a fan of things that multi-task, especially with beauty products. If something only does one thing, then I assume it’s lazy and lacks ambition. (I’m looking at you perfume)
So, when I got SkinFare Verdant Remedy Coconut Oil Stick, I gave it a hearty handshake of approval and offered it a job as my full time must-have beauty product. And it took the job y’all. It took the job.
I use it….
- On my lips as a lip balm
- On my pressure points as aroma therapy
- On my hair when it gets frizzy
- If I get a bug bite
- On my bacon-grease burns (and the scars are definitely fading)
- On my face as a moisturizer on the go
- As a perfume of sorts because I love the smell but this stick doesn’t have the lazy attitude of a normal perfume
Also, it’s $10. And it does all these things, for $10. And it’s natural, which is important to me because I believe when you use natural products chipmunks and bluebirds and baby rainbows find happy homes. (Not a popular belief, I’ll admit, but I think it’s catching on)
I’m not getting paid for this, I just like it. And you should like it too, because baby rainbows need homes y’all.
Remember on Monday when I wrote a post about how I made up a rhyme about the wind taking my sister away and then there was a tornado and I thought I was a witch and I felt really guilty??? Well, I could have sworn that was a story I had talked about with my sister before.
As it turns out, it wasn’t. So, the first she ever heard/read about me making up a poem about the wind taking her away, was when she read my blog on Monday.
Sorry about that sister. I definitely thought that was something we had talked about and laughed about before….but apparently it wasn’t. So, let’s laugh about it now, ok?
Because it’s pretty funny, right? Like, I thought I was a witch. And also, I totally didn’t want the wind to take you away, that was a rhyme I came up with in the heat of the moment. I can’t be blamed for anger-rhyming can I? Right? Love you!
