Hope all you boys and GHOULS have a SPOOKtacular night!
Sorry, I’ve come to the age where I just can’t resist a good dose of corniness. Also? Can I say that I feel like I’m in the scene in Interview with a Vampire where Claudia cuts all her hair off only to turn around and have all of it come right back? Seriously, I feel like the curls are taking OVERRRRRR!
Well, I finished it. As in just moments ago. As in moments before THAT I was hungrily flipping pages. And then I turned another and? There WEREN’T ANY MORE FUCKING PAGES! Don’t you hate that? Ugh, I’m not in the habit of ruining things for people (pet peeve alert) so I won’t give any thing away. But I will say that my first car makes a cameo appearance about a quarter of the way through. Now go read the book…then email me so we can have a Broccoli Book Club meeting! 😉
In addition to this month being dubbed “Concert Month“, I’ve had plenty of full albums on repeat. Along with Sir Sly, I’ve been nonstop-listening to Glass Animals, The Black Keys, and Alt-J. Omg, have you guys heard “Every Other Freckle” by Alt-J? It’s like the indie version of Arctic Monkeys’ “I Wanna Be Yours” (which you already know toodles my bits).
Well just in case you haven’t, please take a minute to ignore the fact that this video makes absolutely no sense and let yourself be carried away by the sway of Joe Newman’s unique vocals. FYI, it doesn’t matter I have to Google half his lyrics to figure out what he’s saying. He could sing about chicken feet and I’d still listen! Lol
Current Guilty Pleasure:
Hello, my name is Heather and I am an Oreo addict. I may or may not have had cookies for breakfast a few times this month. I may or may not scour the cookie aisle every time I go grocery shopping looking for more new flavors. I may or may not be rocking back and forth right now in a state of withdrawal. 😉
Current Nail Color:
Please see “Current Outfit” later in this post for a hint.
Call it a guilty pleasure, but sometimes I indulge in my lack of memory and rewatch standup comedy and then laugh so much till it hurts. The latest? My favorite…Jeff Dunham aka Jef-fa-fa Done-HAAAAAAAM….dot COM! 😆
I’ve never really ever considered myself a Nike girl, but earlier this month, I was in desperate need of new work shoes (like my pinky toe was on the verge of popping through the side of my last pair) so I went shopping one day.
One hour and 40 try-ons later, I had these. They’re lightweight, comfortable, and basically make me feel like I’m a kangaroo. I want more…in every color imaginable.
Pizza…all day, errrrrrry day!
Pumpkin…in and ON everything…like for serious!
Insert crazy, one-eyed, tongue sticking out emoji here. I have a prideful announcement to make: After a sudden arrival of some weird repulsion to the sight of raw bacon frying in a skillet, I am
bacon BACK in business!
You guys! I have been a friggin’ CAMEL lately! I usually go through phases with water -where I totally love it and it’s all I drink or where I don’t want to have anything to do with it and it’s downright torture to get one bottle a day down – but for the last month I’ve been AVERAGING 3 liters a day!
I could keep things superficial and say easing my way back into the kitchen, but it goes a bit deeper than that. I’m not just busting out of a food rut. I’ve honestly been feeling things shift and have been pretty damn positive lately in terms of my relationship with food. As in sometimes it seems quite ridiculous to classify it as a “relationship” at all. Also, my body has gone through a LOT of changes as I’ve battled some food demons over the last year but well…I’ll take curves over craziness to help illustrate my feminine side any day.
So to that, I raise my can of diet Dr. Pepper Cherry because there’s no guilt here and…well, fuck, this shit tastes GOOD!
Current Bane of Existence:
I will not say my garage door. I will not say my garage door. I will NOT say my garage door. Because in a perfect world, or at least one where I wasn’t a lazy, irresponsible, forgetful bum, I would have already had a repairman come out and fix the damn thing after SIX MONTHS. Umm, Oops?
Current Blogger Crush:
I have failed you once again. *sigh* But hey, now that I finally have my new work schedule in place, maybe I’ll find a way to get a little balance back. Or at least respond to the comments on the last week of my posts. Sorry about that.
Sunrise, anyone? 😀
To love and to be loved. We really should all remember to take a minute out of each day to truly appreciate the people in our lives who make us the best versions of ourselves…who make us laugh until we snort…who fill us down to our cores with a warmth that no Hallmark card could ever touch.
So you guys know how I’ve been searching for a Halloween costume? Well, I’m not really one settle for just anything…I like to let my free spirit take the will…oh alright, I’m actually just horrible at making decisions, BUT how about I got an email last Saturday from Open Sky and one of the first things I see is THIS shirt? Next thing I know I’m driving all over town tracking down the perfect lepruchaun accessories…getting new ideas all along the way!
Now if I could just learn how to spell leh-PREW-con! 😉
Tonight, I’ll be strutting my Irish stuff down to Nashville to check out a band with a couple of friends. I don’t think I’d pick out The Devil Makes Three on my own, but I wasn’t quite sure about Shakey Graves before I heard him play live so I’m keeping an open mind. Besides, it’s Nashville on Halloween night…I’m sure I’ll be able to keep myself entertained!
I’m feeeeeeeeelin’ LUCKY! 😉
If you’re participating, what are you dressing up as for Halloween this year? If not, what was your favorite past Halloween costume?
Was October good to you? Tell me some of your favorite highlights!
