I Never Should Have Went into Five Below

So, Boyfriend and I were hanging out last weekend, and we had to run some errands. I needed to buy some critical supplies, like this kick ass popcorn maker:

 Cool, right?

The Popcorn Spoon. It's kind of a thing.

I also needed to buy a couple of hand weights. 

Boyfriend suggested we go to five below. I’ve been there once or twice, but I didn’t really remember it.
It's wondrous
For those of you who don’t know, five below is a store where everything is five bucks or less. Like a jacked up dollar store for rich people.

We went in and I got my hand weights – five bucks each! Awesome sauce.

But then I made the mistake of looking  around.

I ended up only buying the weights and an iphone cover. But DAMN. That store is a cheapo/poor person’s dream. Seriously. Boyfriend created a monster

The Kitten Jog

Time for another Mayor Gia exercise! This one involves getting off the futon.


Get ready for this:

Step 1: Have Boyfriend come over with a bicycle.
OMG you guys, I worked so hard on that bike drawing
Step 2: Attach wagon to bicycle.

Step 3. Find kitten. 
(like one of the feral ones at your work)

Step 4: Put kitten in wagon.

Step 5: Have Boyfriend ride bicycle.

Step 6: Try to catch kitten.

Ta-DA! Enjoy.

[*kitten can be replaced by bunny puppy or duckling, as needed]

Football Season is Coming to an End

I decided to have a little chat with Popsicle the Polar Bear and Allie.

Me: Hey guys! How’s it going?
Popsicle: How about those football games last weekend! Yeah!
Allie: Yes, we watched the football games and very much enjoyed the footballing.
Popsicle: WOOHOOO 49ers!!!
Allie: Yes, that’s the team we were cheering for.
Me: Allie…do you even like football?
Allie: Yes, yes I do. We like to watch the men throw the football around the court-
Popsicle: FIELD
Allie: Right, field. It’s a fun thing for us to watch together.
Me: Allie, who else is in the superbowl?
Allie: The what?
Popsicle: Damnit, Allie! The Ravens!
Allie: I would like to eat a raven.
Popsicle: Why is it always about food with you?
Allie: Uhh…how about because I’m a motherfreaking alligator, Popsicle! Those arms of the footballers look tasty!
Popsicle: Player. They’re football players.
Allie: Yeah yeah, same thing. Anyway, we can’t wait to watch the big bowl together!
Popsicle: SUPERBOWL! And you promise not to talk the whole time again??
Allie: …
Popsicle: Allie….
Allie:  You know I can’t do that.
Popsicle: Damnit.
Popsicle: 49ers!
Allie: What? I’m only seven away!
Me: Eh, close enough.
Popsicle: Leave me alone. I’ll watch the game with Boyfriend.

How do you guys feel about the superbowl? Are you more Allie-like or Popsiclely?

1. Denial

2. Anger

3. Bargaining

4. Depression

5. Acceptance

Has this ever happened to anyone else? Luckily, it has a happy ending...

Yaaay! Not as good as wine, but it'll do.

I keed, I keed. But I am one of the lucky ones to have today off, so I'll be fucking around catching up on housework today.
