Swimsuit Shopping, Le Sigh

This is a messed up time of year. Yesterday's weather was pretty much this:


And yet, it's already time for this:


Have you guys been swim suit shopping lately? It's not fun, especially for us ladies. 




True story. That really happened. Stupid spandex.

Anyhoo, I tried on a variety of styles:




I finally decided on one that....looks exactly like all the other swimsuits I have. 




What about you? Are you all ready for summer?

Life of Cat

As I was sitting around this weekend, I realized something.


And then I realized something else. 


Not forever. Just for like, a solid month or two.




Ah, the simple kitty life. Since I can't actually live like this during the week (stupid job), I've taken to catting on the weekends. 

And tbd, the whole catting thing is exactly why this post is pretty short and not very well developed. I couldn't help it, I had to sleep for 12 hours!!

Podcast time! 

Unfortunately, we only spend the first couple of minutes talking about my cat. Sigh.

Bad Kitty!

So, I walked into my kitchen a few days ago to see this: 


Yes, that's my kitty. Standing on my only eating table with her dirty, litter filled paws. I reacted:


Kitty did not:




I've been informed that "this is how it starts."


I refuse to accept that. I will NOT have a counter-cat (a cat that jumps on the kitchen counter, for you non cat people).


Does anyone else do the aluminum foil trick? It doesn't work at all with my parents' cats. Luckily, my cat is much more fearful of noises.



And that's how I bested a ten month old kitten. Huzzah! 

Cat owners: how do you keep your cats off of tables/out of bad places?

Cave Kitty

As I've discussed before, I've cut way down on the carbs


I've also mentioned kitty's expanding waistline. As a result, I've cut out the kibble and am only giving her wet food.


So, we're both eating kind of paleo-like-ish. I call it the Cave Kitty Diet. 


You know, except for the fact that I don't eat meat and her food comes out of a can. Besides that, it's pretty much how I imagine our ancestors ate. 







Man our ancestors had it easy.

Throwback Thursday: 50 Shades of TMI

Throwback Thursday: Since that 50 Shades of Grey train wreck of a movie is still in theaters, I thought this was a good #TT. Regardless of how fucked up my drawings were back then. 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

For the record, no, I have not read 50 Shades of Grey. But I have read enough about it that I feel like I can be judgmental about it.

The other week I had this texting conversation with my sister:
Sis: Have you read 50 shades of grey yet its ridiculous
Me: No why would I read that?
It’s twilight fanfiction porn
Whats wrong with you
Sis: Idk bc its super dark and risqué. I’m on the second book and its waayyyyyyyyy more disturbing then [SIC.] twilight. Practically everyone I know is reading it
And yes def pornish
Me: It’s bdsm.
Sis: Yeah its even darker then [SIC. FML, how are we related?!] that at points.
Me: Do you know what BDSM is??

Then last weekend, I have this gchatting convo with a coworker:
Coworker: I bought the book shades of grey last night
I thought it was about like wolves and living in the woods, but it's like this romance novel hahah  
but everyone has been raving about it so i hope it's good
‪me: Hahahha omg
It's bad twilight fanfiction bdsm porn
hahahahahha
My sister read it and i ripped on her so bad for it
‪Coworker: It's bad?!
‪me: 50 shades of grey right?
‪Coworker: yeahhh
‪me: I haven't read it but all the reviews say the same thing
writing is terrible
plot is cheese
anyhoo happy reading. 
Coworker: hahahahah
I thought it was some into the wild type shit haha
I should have read the cover
What was that one that was a movie with i think Colin Firth
Into the Gray?
‪me: Liam Neeson
I think that was just called The Grey
Coworker: yeahhh
‪me: Then there was that Into the Wild movie with Emile Hirsch
and then theres 50 Shades of Grey, the twilight inspired fanfiction
Coworker: ugh.
Well i did read the hunger games and it was really good, so maybe this will be good too.
‪me: Sure.
Did you like twilight?
‪Coworker: I refused to read them.
‪me: Oh okay
this should go well then  
Coworker: hahaha
awesome.
‪me: It's pretty impressive though
This woman wrote some bad fanfiction
self published  
got picked up
and is now going to make a disgusting amount of money.
‪Coworker: hahaha, that is impressive
I have the book in my car
I was going to read it during work because i thought maybe it would get good
me: Yeahhhh. Don’t do that.

I don't want to come off like a hater, because it’s not that I have a problem with reading badly written porn. But I don’t want to know that my sister and coworker are reading said porn. It’s like:
My own personal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
Guys, I really don’t want to think about my sis reading a bdsm novel. I don’t I don’t I don’t.


I need some brain bleach.

Downton Gia

If you follow me on twitter, you'll know Boyfriend is obsessed with Downton Abbey. I'm trying to be supportive of his interests.








...


So, do you guys watch Downton Abbey? I'm currently on season 3. Oh Maggie Smith, so much sass!
