Friday 5: My Dreams They Aren’t as Empty as My Conscience Seems to Be

Happy Friday to all and happy completion of a full 5-day work week to me! It’s the little things. Here are the things that went RIGHT this week:

I ate my planned lunch 4/5 times this week, just as I was supposed to. This week I made wedge salads for myself.

Good looking, for a salad.

They were alright, but next week I think I’ll go back to spinach and quinoa. I yoga’d every day and practiced my guitar 4/5 days so far. Let’s just say it’ll be a long time until I’m recruited by the Indigo Girls. Nails are still unbitten. January is still dry. Discretionary spending was only on an iTunes song and a hat. I think Murphy dragged my comfy knit hat off somewhere and it’s been cold out!

Weekend goals:
> Clean craft room
> Hit the library for some books. My hold queues have stalled and I need some new reading material without spending money.
> Bake some bread
> Don’t eat out.

Time for the Friday 5 — first time in a while! This week’s theme is My Dreams They Aren’t as Empty as My Conscience Seems to Be — let’s get to it!

1.What’s got you behind the 8-ball?
I think I’m in pretty good shape. When I use my planner I do stay on top of things. I need to renew the SSL certificate for this blog – keep it all secure – but that’s not due until February. My craft room could use some organization. And I haven’t gone through the Show Us Your Books links yet. That’s a nice thing to do on a chilly weekend.

2. Who would you like to see a VH-1-Behind-the-Music-style documentary about?
I’d say NKOTB, but I pretty much know everything about them anyway. They kicked ass on New Year’s Eve, by the way. Allow me a gratuitous…

SIIIIIIIIIIGH…

3. What are you likely to find behind your sofa?
Oh God probably a terrifying amount of dog hair. Maybe that lost winter hat.

4. What’s something you’d like to put behind you this year?
Last year I kept remarking and thinking about how awful 2017 was. This year I’m putting the events of TWO years ago behind me.

5. What’s something you don’t want to eat if there’s no ketchup?
Scrambled eggs. Yes, I’m THAT person.

Friday 5: Ice Is Forming on the Tips of My Wings

Happy Friday and DAMN I’m tired. I think I’m getting a cold because I feel fuzzy in the head.

WM and me mugging for camera

Philadelphia international airport. Probably 4am.

So we’re going to get right to the Friday 5, and I’m going to hie to my sofa and quilts. This week’s theme is Ice Is Forming on the Tips of My Wings, and I’m not even going to use that theme to complain about yesterday’s snow. I’m that beat.

1. How do you feel about passengers riding in front of you reclining their seats?
Not a fan. I think it’s pretty rude to take up some of the area that I paid for, yet I’ll never say anything because I’m a wimp.

2. What single aspect of airplane flight do you dislike the most?
When the person behind me grabs onto my seat to haul themselves up. I’ve had hair ripped from my head while people did that. On my flight to Florida, the man behind kept his hand on the back of my seat the entire time he was awake. Don’t touch my seat!

3. What was your longest flight on an airplane?
Philadelphia to San Diego, I believe.

4. What’s your favorite way to pass the time on a long flight?
Completing the crossword puzzle in the inflight magazine, then reading that magazine. I think inflight magazines have some fantastic pieces in them, if you look between the ads. I miss the SkyMall catalog. I know it’s online now, but I’m never going to look at it while I’m on the ground.

5. What are the best and worst things you’ve eaten on a plane or in an airport?
The Great American Bagel Bakery in SeaTac airport offered the worst breakfast bagel sandwich I had ever had. How something manages to be hard AND greasy is beyond me.

Goodnight. 😉

Friday 5: After ‘Im

Happy Friday!

This time last week I was at Walt Disney World. Look at this magic!

Marion and Indy at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party


The fireworks started just as we came to the front of the line to have our picture taken. Gorgeous.

On the Peoplemover.


SIGH.

We left last Thursday and came home on Monday. It was amazeballs. We stayted at Port Orleans: French Quarter which is my new favorite resort that is not my beloved Polynesian.

Port Orleans: French Quarter. This is my very basic Mickey Mouse Disneybound outfit.


I have more photos to share but WM has to download them from Disney’s website. I only have watermarked versions.

Monday night we fell asleep early, Tuesday we collected Ollie and Murphy from the kennel Pet Hotel and Wednesday it was back to work. On Halloween. I’ve been living on junk food for over a week now.

Time for the Friday 5. This week’s theme is After ‘Im which I’m saying to myself with a strong Dick Van Dyke Cockney accent. I’m going out of order, because I feel the answer to question 5 has a lot to do with the rest of the answers.

5. What immature behavior have you displayed recently?

With the exception of our fancy Le Cellier dinner, when we’re at WDW we eat like unsupervised teenagers with adult salaries. You might think I’m kidding, but one of the queen beds in our hotel room was strictly reserved for bed snacking. For the last 3 days I’ve been drinking coffee and Diet Dr. Peppers and eating the rest of the Halloween candy. And that’s it. How long can a 46 year old live on Laffy Taffy and Junior Mints? I have GOT to start eating real food again.

3. In what way is your life lately imbalanced?

Half the time I feel like an overstretched Stretch Armstrong doll and the other half of the time I’m a tightly wound rubberband. I completely blame the crap eating. I need to cook some food but OMG MORE KITKATS!

4. What recent impulse purchases have you made?

Our Walt Disney World vacations are full of impulse purchases. Tonight we are drinking coffee out of matching Haunted Mansion mugs. I came home with 2 pair of headband ears. WM is wearing a pair of pajama pants with Grumpy all over them. (I call them the Grumpypants.)

1. What improbable feat did you pull off this week?
(inhaling lines of crushed Smarties)

While cracked out on high fructose corn syrup and red dye 40, I managed to deescalate a situation with a vendor, write some amazing emails, and narrow down what is making one of our reports go wonky.

2. What will you do immediately following your completion of this post?
I’m either going to slam some diet Dr. Pepper and play Diablo, or collapse from exhaustion.
