Thoughts that Keep Me Up at Night, Volume 2

Note: no I don’t have a cat yet. We’re talking about  a hypothetically cat I’ll be getting over the summer, after I move to cat friendly apartment.

Sexism. Crush the patriarchy!

Sponsor me Sutter Home damnit!

Ok guys, what should I name my future cat?

Thoughts that Keep Me Up at Night, Volume 1

In case you guys missed it, I'm moving next month to a cat-friendly apartment.

Boyfriend does not appreciate my cat concern. I need one that is A. adorable B. friendly but not too outgoing C. female D. a wee little baby kitten E. pretty much perfect in every way  and F. either free or pretty close to it.

Throwback Thursday: Bangs

Just cuz.

Since “embarrassing things” seems to be this week’s theme, let’s talk about what I did on Monday.

This is a slight exaggeration.

So. I really wanted a long sidebang, but I recently got my hair trimmed and they cut too much anyway and I’m trying to grow it out so I didn’t want to go back for another trim just to throw in the sidebang.

Mistake uno: believing in myself
Like with any major decision, I checked with twitter first.

The responses were fairly positive, I think:

Okay not really at all. I tried to reassure everyone that I knew what I was doing:

I checked with Boyfriend, too, via gchat:

Me: In other news i bought a pair of hair cutting scissors 
If you need me I'll be in my bathroom for the next hour 
This should go well
Boyfriend: DON’T DO IT!
Me: Damn 
Between you and twitter …
Its just a little sidebang!!1
Boyfriend:  famous last words
I'd like someone to bang on the side too you know [Note: he’s kidding.]
Me: Don’t start 
but seriously 
I’m being adventurous 
snip snip 
Boyfriend: The next words after its just a little side bang are, "it cost me $120 to fix it at the hair salon" 
It went..okay. Except I didn’t listen to my brain even though I knew my bangs were wet, and cut them shorter than intended. And slightly unevenly. But I didn’t cut that much of them, so it’s not that noticeable…

Everyone was supportive.

Boyfriend came over and saw it.

Throwback Thursday: And Then I Fell Down.

Since it's that walking time of year again, I thought this post was appropriate. Hoping there won't be a repeat this season!

It was great weather this weekend, so I went for a walk on Saturday.

And then out of nowhere, the stupid evil sidewalk jumped up and tripped me and I fell.

I skinned both my hands and knees pretty badly. I got up and powerwalked back to my apartment.

You guys, skinning your hands and knees HURTS. No wonder kids are always crying. Seriously.

I texted Boyfriend:

Luckily Boyfriend soon arrived with bandaids.

He patched me up as much as he could.

And I spent the rest of the night moaning about my injuries.

Busy Weekend!

This was a busy weekend for me. I had a wedding to go to. 

Yes, that is what I wore. I was slightly worried about the bride upstaging me, but she didn't have a tiara, so SUCK IT. 

And then the weather was real nice so I had to do my thang. 

And what did Boyfriend do, you ask?

Anyways, how was your weekend? Do anything fun?
