Another Random Saturday

I actually rather liked my “Random” post last week. So I did it again! This might become a regular weekly thing.

  1. On Sunday, the family had a pumpkin carving party. Caitlin and Josh came with Delaney, and Annie even drove up from Maryland! I’ve never actually carved a pumpkin before – I lack the patience to scoop out the guts, and also I’m not really to be trusted with blades, so I always draw a face with markers instead. But this year I gave it a shot and carved a little owl dude! I think he came out pretty cute.

    Skills - I have 'em. Y'all jealous.

  2. The party was costume-optional. My parents and my aunt and uncle all dressed up. It was bizarre.

    Mom & Dad as gypsies

    Sue as Teresa Giudice

    Kenny as Juicy Joe Giudice

  3. I went trick-or-treating with Delaney. Y’all even more jealous.

    Her evil witch cackle needs a little work.

  4. Started a Pinterest account and now I’m obsessed. Seriously, I’ve gone insane (or should I say PINsane! Hahaha! …Please tell me I’m funny.)

    "I own your soul now."

  5. If Pinterest doesn’t wreck me, Ryan Gosling just might. This article about him is full of truth (except it neglects to mention that he was in an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, which somehow makes him even hotter.) He’s almost the most perfect being in the universe. Except Hugh Jackman still exists, so sorry, Ryan.

    Still, I would not kick this out of my bed.

  6. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries… REALLY? Like, obviously. Of course. Inevitable. But still. You couldn’t stick it out through 3 months and at least pretend you aren’t complete assholes?

    Silly me. That would require acting and, by extension, talent.

  7. Thursday nights are simultaneously the greatest ever and the worst ever right now. How am I supposed to choose between The Vampire Diaries and Community + Parks and Rec every week? At least nothing touches Sunny.

    Me at 8:00 every Thursday night.

  8. Wednesday nights, on the other hand, work out just perfectly. Up All Night at 8, Suburgatory at 8:30, Modern Family at 9, half-hour break (optimal for showering,) South Park at 10. Take notes, Thursday.

    Me on every Wednesday night.

  9. The trailer for ParaNorman was released this week. Nothing short of amazing.

Random Saturday

Nine random thoughts to get me through work today:

  1. Thursday night I ate 3 brownies, 10 mini Hersheys, and polished off the rest of the cashew butter. Last night I had 2 brownies and 5 more Hersheys. I could admit to a critical lack of impulse-control, but it’s easier to blame PMS.

    "It's the hormones, dammit!"

  2. Started watching Wilfred this morning. How did I wait this long?

    I can no longer deny my love for Elijah.

  3. Today was McDaniel’s homecoming. I didn’t go. My to-do list is way too long right now – I don’t need to spend 3 hours driving in the rain/snow/sleet/whatever just to eat soggy hotdogs, drink cheap beer, and then drive another 3 hours in the rain/snow/sleet/whatever + dark. Also, who has homecoming on Halloween weekend? Fuck that.

    Yeah, that's not worth sharing small talk with people I didn't even like back when we were students.

  4. It’s snowing today. Kinda. It’s melting fast, so it’s more like an extra-chilly rainstorm mixed with a bit of sleet. Everyone’s going bat-poo insane over it, but really, it’s not a big deal. Strange for October, but after the earthquakes and hurricanes this summer, people need to calm the eff down about it.

    "Where the hell is FEMA? We've got FROZEN RAIN!"

  5. Why do you need to wait for an invite to join Pinterest? I wanna start noooooow!

    "I just want to obsess over dumb crap!"

  6. I need these $200 shoes. My well-being pretty much depends on it.

    For fancy.

  7. Last night, Becky, Ashley and I watched Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus. Spoiler: the volcano wins.

    Also, Steve Urkel's a military scientist.

  8. I came up with a brilliant Halloween costume, but there’s not enough time to put it together this year. So you’ll all just have to wait until next to see it.

    Here's a hint.

  9. Jack-O-Lantern carving party with the family tomorrow night. I’ve been looking at some kickass photos for ideas, and decided I really hate creative/talented people.

    Showoff.
