Two Hippie Chic

A gathering of pretty things, lovely links and loads of fun brought to you by two hippies.

YOLO

  • Me: FYI Nordstrom is having a sale and I'm buying a new jacket for fall
  • Russell: Because you don't have enough :)
  • Me: I need one for fall! So I can stop wearing the North Face I've had since 2004!
  • Russell: Yeah, go YOLO on that.
  • Me: I don't think I've lost any weight from crossfit/working out more
  • Male British friend: really?! It has surely shifted!
  • Me: um. I've gotten more toned...shifted?!
Balance?  At least I’m being honest. 

(Boss gave me a bag full of Lindt chocolates for my 1 year work anniversary.  They are delicious.)

I would like to state for the record that I have had 3 balls, not 9.

Crazy hair colors

I’m loving this new “trend” of actresses dying their hair crazy colors like purple and blue.  It transports me back to freshman year of high school (early 2000s!) when I was on the crew team and roomed with the “crazy” girls at an away regatta and they all dyed their hair since we were adult-less.

Side note: they were deemed “crazy” because they were kind of goth/punk/dressed like they stepped out of Hot Topic, had a lot of piercings, dyed their hair crazy colors and a few were lesbians.  In reality, they weren’t crazy at all, they just didn’t look like the rest of us, but I’m sure most of the white middle-class parents on our team thought they were all going to turn us into blue-haired lesbians, but I digress.  

So they dyed their hair (using manic panic!) and of course I was there to watch/did not dye my hair because my parents would kill me and I really liked my hair.  One dyed hers red and stained the bathtub.  In a fit of spontaneity (I am not/was not spontaneous) I dyed one single strand of hair (underneath, so my parents couldn’t see), and thought I was the baddest motherfucker there.

Namaste

I just got chewed out over the phone by some douche who is pissed because we don’t have enough free databases at his disposal so he can do research to find a new job.  I tried looking him up after I finally got him off the phone.  HE’S NOT EVEN ON LINKEDIN.  If he had taken a breath and let me actually SPEAK, I probably could have told him that’s step number 1 to getting a job.

Serious face.

Serious face.

False alarm

Heard back from the Landlord and apparently they really were insurance people in our yard, but no one ever told him they’d be coming to our house/on our property.  Do these people not realize that’s…trespassing?  Or that it’s rental insurance therefore this is a rental unit and the tenants need to be advised (by law!) of anyone coming on the property?  I hope he doesn’t go with these idiots, purely for this reason.

*Note: you better believe I slept with a golf club and a weight next to my bed.  Just in cases. 

Pretty fucking freaked out

My neighbor just told me there was some person in our backyard taking pictures today and said it was for insurance. And asked if we have dogs. Shouldn’t my landlord have told me about this? What if they aren’t really insurance people?!
