Friday Five: My checks have baby farm animals on them, biatch

1. This weekend I'll be working on my Pinteractive project to post on Monday, and I'm beyond thrilled that it looks like there'll be lots of folks joining the fun!

2. I blame Mrs. Priss for my new obsession with Revlon Lip Butters. I'm not a big lipstick gal, but I have two, which I've fallen hard for. I'm already getting the shakes thinking about another fix.

3. I was catching up with my best friend, Shelby, and telling her about the stupid, bigoted comments a guy we grew up with made on my Facebook page about gay marriage the other day. I wasn't surprised when he made the comments he did because he was always a small-minded troublemaker growing up, and it was my first public defriending. Shelby said she had denied his original friend request, and I told her I'd given him the benefit of the doubt, thinking he'd matured after all these years. Then she likened me to Jess, Zooey Deschanel's character on New Girl. The recent episode centered around how Jess sees nothing but the good in people, which can lead to sticky situations. It's true. I am totally Jess. I see the good in nearly everyone, I have touched glitter within the past 24 hours, I talk in funny voices and respond in song lyrics. And I despise confrontation, but I despise bigotry more.

4. Recently I realized that any Facebook friend request I accept should come with the warning, "You've just friended an oversharer. I hope you enjoy lots of stories and pictures of life with a 3-year-old. Consider yourself warned."

5. Em and I both love this song. The first few times I heard the chorus on the radio, I would've sworn it was Sting. Obviously it's not, but I still adore it. 


  1. You're awesome & I need to friend you on Facebook!

    - I've done 2 things for the Pinteractive challenge
    - I have 5 Revlon Lip Butters (yikes)
    - I love The New Girl! And I love Gotye!

  2. I gave "The New Girl" a second time because of you and now I thank you! I love it so much.

    I have done like three things for your Pineractive challenge. I am so obsessed with Pinterest.

  3. Since you posted this, I've listened to that song at least 5 times a day. OBSESSED.
