What I liked About Today

4 Jun

It’s Friday! But au contraire Chris Tucker, I DO have a job and DO have shit to do! Can’t believe that movie is 15 years old, oh how time flies……and who would’ve thought Ice Cube went and pulled a Eddie Murphy and started doing all these family movies?  I guess no more f*** the police huh?

My Kashi Crunchy Bar that surprisingly kept me full throughout the morning

A gyro that was actually a gyro-as opposed to the crappy gyro wannabee I had last wk. And crinkle cut fries with it all for under $6? Sounds good.

A slow afternoon-it was nice and slow. I got to take a 20 minute coffee break and flipped through recipes a good part of the afternoon, nothing wrong with that.

Giving to the homeless-I was walking to catch my bus and this homeless man approached me and asked if I had cash or something to eat. I really don’t give anything to homeless people on the streets b.c I just don’t trust them. I know that sounds bad but I don’t. Instead, I donate to the Salvation Army and local food banks where I know it will be used. Anywho, this homeless guy was younger and hot (this right here is why I have problems with my love life, don’t worry I won’t date a homeless man. Men with jobs who I’ve dated have had issues with my job, pay and success, I can’t imagine how a homeless man would feel) I told him I had an apple and he graciously accepted. When I’ve offered food in the past, they just walk away (example A why I don’t trust the homeless) but it felt good knowing he took the apple. And he didn’t hurl it at me which is nice. Now if I could give them some of my half empty bottles of body splash from B&BW……

Arnold Palmer Lite-I never see this stuff on sale anymore and I went to CVS in hopes of getting a soda but nothing appealed to me…..and a 20 oz bottle being $1.69 may have had something to do with that. When the eff did it get that expensive?? That will definitely keep me from buying the soda.

Random Dinner-yet again, I had nothing planned for dinner. I had a pork chop defrosting in the fridge while I was at home but didn’t plan what to make. I usually plan out a few meals during the weekend for the upcoming week and have just sucked at this lately. I really need to look through my recipes and get on the ball. I cut up half a pork chop and cooked on the stove top along with zucchini, onions and peppers with extra virgin olive oil, pepper and garlic salt. While that was cooking, I found some pierogies in the freezer and fried those babies (not to be confused with Lincoln’s babies) up.

Nap time with Lincoln-after dinner I was exhausted. I hate commuting 2 hours a day and am over it. Luckily, one more month in ghetto apartment and then I will be 10 minutes from work. I didn’t take any pictures of nap time (because….um…I was sleeping) but Lincoln decided to revive nap time as I type. When I am typing and I am not paying attention to him, he pouts because I’m not rubbing his belly. I think he got the whole “It’s all about me” state of mine from me though 🙂

Caffeine drinking in the pm-without having to worry about work or waking up at 6A. I love it.

The wedding I’m going to tomorrow-I haven’t been to a wedding in almost two years. I don’t even know the people getting married but weddings are just exciting and fun….. except the bouquet toss, I absolutely hate that. I don’t like being called out because I am single and attention on me (but I pout like Lincoln when attention isn’t on me..hmmm) and I have a competitive side of me and am no holds barred so I really want to throw elbows and trip the other girls but don’t want to be that girl at the wedding. I have my outfit all ready (there will be pics)  and my fake name in place (Gina) in case I come across any creepers (given my track record, it wouldn’t be a surprise if I do).

With my caffeine high in place, I need to do laundry, wash dishes, take a shower (hello water consumption) and clean my place before I leave tomorrow morning. We are doing pool time at the hotel I’m staying at with my friend who’s in town and then wedding time is on. I also have to pack Lincoln’s stuff to go since he will be crashing with my friend and her dog.

Hope everyone has a fabulous wknd!!

    As a professional bridesmaid and wedding-goer, I’ve found sneaky ways to make myself disappear during the boquet toss. And also during Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”. For some reason, that is quite the popular wedding dance tune… Shoot me.

    Just discovered your lovely little bloggy 🙂 Sounds like a good tea; Lincoln is so cute! I am going to a wedding next weekend. I’m only 20 so the bouquet toss isn’t a nightmare for me yet, but I can see how it would be stressful. Good luck and have fun!

    Haha that Ecard is amazing! I was at a wedding a couple weeks ago, and they started playing “single ladies” so my friend and I jumped up to dance and found out it was a trap–we didnt realize it was time for the Toss! It was us and like 2 other girls out there, so awful. They actually made more people come up just so it wasnt so pathetic. We stood as far in the back as possible so as not to catch it; felt like a scene straight out of SATC. So anyway, watch out for that song–wait a few minutes!

    Damn I remember when I had a 2 hr commute to work and that was just ONE way! I haaaaaated it so much.

    I hope you are having fun at the wedding.

    I understand what you mean about the homeless thing. The last place I lived had a lot of homeless people and honestly I learned to ignore it, which makes me feel terrible. I’m more likely to give things (i.e. food) than money.

    Weddings are super fun!! I caught the bouquet at the last wedding I went to (at that time I had a boyfriend…) but it didn’t really work out as the story goes… haha! Oh well!
