Sorry for the sailor talk but I'M MAD AS HELL.
Dear ASSHOLE (formerly known as my unknown research professor), Thanks you gigantic asshole for finally emailing us and deciding to use a textbook other than the one that was ASSIGNED FOR THE CLASS. I just got the other book I thought I was supposed to have in the mail. Looks like I’ll be returning it. On top of that, thank you for assigning a textbook that is NOT AVAILABLE IN THE...
Dear Applied Educational Research professor, Are you real? Will you be my teacher? If so, how about you post some shit online so I can see that I do in fact have a professor and a syllabus. We’re two days into classes. It’s my understanding that you were thrown into this class at the last minute because so many damn people want to research education. I’m sorry about...
Things I am looking forward to
3 day weekend!!! Seeing the Brewery Follies on Friday. Comedy+alcohol=awesome. Camping Glamping. We’re putting Russell’s memory foam in the back of my Jeep to sleep on. Because I’m done with camping. Conning Convincing Russell that we should go to the Patagonia outlet that is 2 hours away because they’re having a Labor Day sale. (40% off of already reduced items! ...
Fact: I have never seen Mad Men
So I don’t understand all of these Mad Men posts. Other than January Jones has big bajumbos, but that’s just stating the obvious, now isn’t it? Edit: Also haven’t seen Lost, Glee, 24, or any other show everyone talks about. But Real Housewives? Rachel Zoe? Yes, I watch those. It’s how I decompress after doing schoolwork.
There is snow on the mountains and I'm wearing...
Signs fall is coming.
Spelt is a species of wheat.
So when you say your name is “spelt wrong,” it doesn’t make any fracking sense.
TODAY IS MONDAY.
bippityboppityboo: Finish each day & be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders & absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely & with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. Ralph Waldo Emerson Needed this today.
Dear Amazon.com, Thank you for bequeathing me with a $5.00 gift for free music after I spent a ridiculous amount of money on textbooks. I put it to good use and bought the Avett Brothers’ new album. To my surprise, you immediately emailed me with another $4.00 worth of movies/tv. DO YOU KNOW ME? DO YOU KNOW I LIKE FREE STUFF? In conclusion, those textbooks? I bought them a week ago. ...

Why yes, that is me. I am in the NY Post as part of the blind date set up. - J
I just googled the requirements for obtaining a marriage license in VA, since you know…I’ll need one of those. I learned the following: You can marry at the age of 16, as long as your parents say you can. You can’t marry your brother/sister. A niece can’t marry her uncle. An aunt can’t marry her nephew. You can’t marry someone the same gender as you. ...

Coco Rocha + James Conran’s wedding video. There aren’t words for her dress, it’s the most dramatic mermaid dress I’ve ever seen. As a haute couture model, she owns it like no one else could. I got chills it was so hauntingly beautiful. - J
Does anyone else think that this season's Project...
Because that’s what I think.
Russell: Want to go to Macy's?
Me: Why? What's at Macy's?
Russell: Registry stuff. So we can look at what we want before we go home and register.
(The Macy's at "home" aka Tysons Corner is MUCH better than the one we have here.)
And this is why I'm marrying him. Because he knows this shit makes me SO EXCITED! Knives! Dinner plates. BAKING ITEMS!!
Call me Oprah because I'm going to tell you my...
Oprah does her section at the back of O magazine where she does the “things I know for sure” or something to that effect. Here are my thoughts. #1 A good blowout & excellent mascara are an amazing confidence booster. As a sidenote: I just tried Maybelline The Falsies for the first time tonight & it actually gives my Dior Iconic a really good run for its money. #2...

Raleigh: [Into tape recorder, softly] Dudley suffers from a rare disorder combining symptoms of amnesia, dyslexia, and color-blindness, with a highly acute sense of hearing.
Dudley Heinsbergen: [from adjoining room] I'm not color blind, am I?
Raleigh: I'm afraid you are.

It is hard to pretend to even be Sandra Lee
I used about 1,000 dishes, got every surface in my kitchen covered in either water or food and ate bites of everything to “make sure” my treats were decent to force upon my coworkers tomorrow. I also had to drink some beers, good ones of course, not the PBR I make my guests drink. Cooking & baking simultaneously is really stressful, seriously. The apartment hasn’t burned down...
Doing my best Martha Stewart tonight
My best Martha Stewart is actually more like Sandra Lee (of the semi-homemade/Andrew Cuomo’s girlfriend fame). Making pasta salad & Seven Layer bars for tomorrow’s potluck at work. EEK! - J
Today I spent money on the following: Baby clothes for my niece (to be born in November). A stroller for said niece. The 3 extra credits that my work won’t pay for (yes, I’m crazy and doing 9 credits. I just want to be done!). Holy balls that was expensive. My textbooks. Sorority dues. (Yes, I’m not actually an active member anymore but those bitches ladies make me feel...

um, best book title idea ever. one sentence that sums up the book. genius! - J
I’d like to think that I have extremely good intuition. Lately, I’ve been thinking of all those “moments” that I listened to my intuition. Those moments that I blocked out the “noise” of everyone else and just listened to myself. I am insanely thankful that I listened. I’m glad I listened to my intuition that told me to go introduce myself to that...
(Disclaimer: Please be aware that I am a perfectionist) I just had a crazy idea. I’m supposed to complete my Masters of Adult and Higher Education by the end of next summer. What if I take 9 credits this semester (my work only pays for 6), pay for the remaining 3 credits with financial aid…and then finish in May instead? (I would have to take 6 more credits in the Spring semester) ...
Boy to Girl Ratio
Earlier today, I overheard a new student (who was VERY girly and looking VERY out of place in this mountain town) say to her mom, “The boy to girl ratio here is really high, that’s why I like it so much. There’s a lot of boys.” I had to hold myself back from saying: “Girl, they’re just here for the skiing. Unless you can go hike the ridgeline, they...
I have a minor crush on Keith Olbermann.
If that doesn’t expose my liberal heart, I don’t know what will.
