too blah to use the shift key

i have nothing to say, nothing to talk about, i want nothing, i need nothing, i am sick and i feel no need to capitalize my i’s or pretend like i care about anything. i need to save up my sick days so that i can use them as pretend vacation days but right now, i wish i was home watching ncis reruns and drinking tea. i decided i really like ellie bishop’s character and almost bought season 11 on dvd last weekend just so i could see her be badass in action. that idea is still on the table for the next couple of weekends. i will be busy this weekend but the next few weekends after that are looking pretty empty. hopefully i’ll have some down time and will be able to relax and watch mindless tv for 2 straight days.

i miss my senior year of college when all i would do was study, nap, eat chinese food, and watch ncis marathons on amc.

Holey donut

One thing you need to know about me is that I love food. Any and all food is welcome in this belly. Exotic food is exciting, domestic food is magical, basically any and all food is wonderful. However, there will always be a special place in my heart for free food.

My job is cool sometimes because we get to go to lunch with agencies and the company pays for it.

So without further adieu, here is my free lunch:

Pink is important, Part Deux

I’ve never really been considered a “girly-girl.” I never cared about pink or hearts or love. I don’t know all the of things associated with being girly but I don’t think I’ve ever really been overly concerned with them. Mainly because I’m not really overly concerned with anything. But lately, I’ve been very in tune with things that make me feel happy and apparently, they’re all very girly.

Some include:

  • that nude lip color that the models are doing so well
  • flowers – not bouquets, but actual gardens of living breathing flowers
  • tea
  • hugging
  • lipstick
  • sunglasses

But recently, the thing that has been on my mind most is that light pink almost blush color that has been everywhere. I’ve been obsessed with it. Trying to get things accessories that color, clothes, really expensive bags, I even bought a candle because the picture made it look that perfect blush color. (Fun Fact: the candle is also pink champagne scented so the probability that I was going to purchase it anyway was pretty damn high.)

So whatever, I’ve found things that make me seem feminine… it’s all good people, because technically, I’m a girl. It’s ok that I want to act girly.

But here are some pink pictures I have found that make me happy.

 Pink is important part one… kinda

Happy President’s Day

I am currently on a bus I’ve never been on before, careening along the north shore (I think) of Staten Island, internally freaking out and crying for pancakes. Happy Monday national holiday that I still have to work!

Because I live in what most call South Bumble, AKA Tottenville on Staten Island’s south shore, there are only a few ways to get into manhattan for work. Throw a national holiday into the mix and your ways off the island dwindle down to 2, the ferry and the x1 express bus. I would normally take the train to the ferry to the train to work but because it is 3 degrees in New York right now, my parents and boyfriend thought it would be easier and safer if I were to just take a bus. Sure this bus will stop a million times all over Staten Island and NYC, sure I have no clue about which route it takes or where most of the stops are, sure I can’t fall asleep on this bus like I do on my regular morning commute, but it still beats transferring 3 times and freezing my ass off on the train and ferry.

I had to drive a little bit to get to a bus stop (the street name is actually Thornycroft Avenue… How weird) but I will be getting a bagel with butter when I get I to the city, and I got to see this. So maybe today isn’t so terrible…

Happy Valentine’s Day little loves

Tomorrow my cousin is getting married and I won’t be able to post, but here are some Instagram pics I found that make me happy about the color pink, even if I’m not really a lovey-dovey, pink-loving, Valentine’s day celebrator.
