Confessional Time!

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

It's that time again! Yes! It's time for some Hump Day Confessions, hosted by Kathy of Vodka and Soda! Hooray! If you'd like to link-up your confessions, head on over to Kathy's blog, read some fun blogs, and confess your secrets to the internet.

Vodka and Soda

- It's not really Hump Day. I mean, it is, but today is my Thursday because I'm taking Friday off to spend time with my dad while he's in town for the weekend.

- I'm not totally excited to see my dad because it means that I can't sleep until noon this weekend. My father is a morning person. It's unfortunate.

- I may have eaten half a sleeve of Chips Ahoy cookies last night while watching a weird movie on Netflix that I didn't even finish.

- I am so sick of mortgage and house stuff that I have reached the point where I would pay someone a large sum of money to take care of the rest of it for me. Any takers?

- Oh, and by "a large sum of money" in the above confession, I obviously meant "a cookie". There are some left from the Chips Ahoy that I bought.

- Ken and I have the entirety of the most reason season of The Walking Dead on our DVR and I seriously don't even care. I am highly contemplating just deleting it. Does anyone have any compelling reasons for why we need to watch the most current season?

-  I spent almost 3 minutes trying to get into someone else's blue car in the parking lot of the Quest Diagnostics lab parking lot on Monday morning.

- I interviewed someone today who put "cheese enthusiast" on his resume under "other experience". I asked him what his favorite cheese was and he said it was mozzarella. Before he leaves, I'm going to ask him which cheese thinks best represents him and why. I hope I don't scare him off.

- I have yet to pay the bill for my last dentist appointment... but it's only $7 after my insurance paid for things. I have no idea why there's a $7 charge, but there is.

- This might cause a ruckus in the blogosphere, but I didn't love The Fault in Our Stars. I don't know if it's the fact that I work in pediatric oncology, or the fact that I have a chronic illness (albeit, not cancer, but an illness that affects my life, could possibly shorten my life, and will never leave), or the fact that I'm not a big fan of how most YA novels are written... but I just don't really like it. I feel like it romanticizes what essentially boils down to a really shitty situation. We need to stop romanticizing chronic illness; it's not cute, it's not fun, it's not romantic.

- I seriously want to adopt a kitten. Yes, a third cat. I'm kind of mad that Ken vehemently opposes this. Sometimes, I think about just going to the shelter and showing up at home with one, but I really like being married and not having fights, so thus far, I've managed to not do that...

- ... but that doesn't mean that once we have a house that I won't try and become a foster mom for kittens. (Sorry, Ken.)

- Just kidding, I'm not actually sorry.

- I order fancy pens/markers through my office and then take them home.

- I spent $178 on two bras over the weekend. But they fit, so that's all that matters, right?

- I have absolutely no decorating genes in my body, but what I do have is a best friend named Victoria who should probably quit her job (which she's also great at) and become an interior decorator.

- The pharmacists at CVS know me by name and don't even blink when I walk in to pick up 9 refills at a time.

- I am the worst at picking restaurants. I never know what I want to eat, and somehow, the decision is always left up to me. Someone else pick, for the love of God, or we won't eat until next Tuesday.

-I have had the DVD for American Hustle since April 2nd. This is stupid. I need to just send it back to Netflix and watch it some other time.

- I still haven't gotten over to the gym to quit. But as soon as I publish this post, I'll call and try to speak to a manager because this is also stupid.

- I started this blog post an inordinately long time ago but I kept getting distracted by actual work and another blog that I was reading, so now it's 4 pm. Whoops.

So, there's my confessions for this week. I hope that it's significantly less stormy where you are, and that you have a lovely Wednesday!

  1. ugh i couldn't even finish the book. i picked it up because everyone was going on about it like it was the next best thing since sliced bread but 3 chapters in, i put that shit down and have zero desire to read it. or even see the movie.

    1. I'm glad it's not just me! I finished the book but I was just like... meh? I am definitely not running out to see the movie, that's for sure.

  2. I haven't read the book, not sure I want to.
    You must finish TWD because of Daryl...mmmm oh sorry drooling.
    Haha the pens thing made me laugh!

    1. You're really not missing much if you haven't read it. If you have nothing else to do, you can always grab it from the library sometime after the hubbub dies down, but again, I wouldn't say it's a MUST READ OH MY GOD.

      In fact, I just ordered more pens. Shhhh.


Leave me a note! I always reply and I love meeting other bloggers!
