This is a wooden plaque that Craig mailed to Mr. Sombrero (MY BOYFRIEND).
So my question to you is: What should I do with it?
*The idea for this post was inspired by vuboq. Thanks vuboq!
Yay! I was excited about the new Hershey’s Air Delight chocolate bar – I thought it
would be like the Choco’Lite bars of yore. Chocolatey, yet airy.
Boo! But it wasn’t. It just tasted like chocolate chalk.
Yay! And then I received my ugly purse prize in the mail and all was right
with the world (not shown – the 3 candy bars Harry and I immediately ate).
Yay! House is on tonight!
Boo! This is the last season of House.
Boo! I’m out of my favorite lipstick (Maybelline Moisture Whip* #370 – Toast) and they’ve discontinued it!
Yay! I found one that looks fairly similar (Maybelline Colorsensational #275 – Crazy for Coffee).
*Know who else uses Moisture Whip – that’s right, Wonder Woman!
Yay! I get to use more colors in my painting class
Boo! I still have to paint those ugly bottles (the yellow square is the area I’m painting).
Yay! BC&RL3 starts up this week.
Boo! I’ll have to trade in yummy potato chips for yucky rice cakes.
Yay! I will be able to fit into my jeans again.
Boo! I’ll have to trade in sitting on the couch for exercising.
Yay! I’ll feel and look better!
Boo! I’ll have to keep eating right and exercising for the rest of my days.
Yay! I have 3 more days to stuff myself with junk food!
I guess you can’t have the silver linings without the clouds.
What were the ups and downs of your week? Let me know in comments!
Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Let’s celebrate the day before the day before FMS‘s birthday with your favorite Friday five-centric blog feature … The Friday Five!
#1. Sweet Cinnamon Wheat Thins are amazing! Never heard of them? I haven’t either! Apparently it’s only a limited edition flavor … so try them soon and stock up. The sweetness, the cinnamon, the saltiness, the crunch, the Wheat Thin … it’s like a party in my face.
#2. I’m Ready For Christmas because I’m organized, well-prepared and just downright awesome. My gifts are wrapped, my cards have been sent, my gifts have been mailed. Christmas usually stresses me the eff out, but this year — I’m less-stressed and ready to get this holiday over with.
#3. Presents! We’re days away from present-day! I’ve already gotten a few gifts, and most of them are pretty damn great. Really, what can be better than free stuff that comes wrapped? Oh, and giving gifts is pretty good too or whatever.
#4. Blog’n in 2012 is looking up. Most of the C&Rmy slacked off in 2011. The field is littered with a number of abandoned blogs, false starts, lackluster posts and abandoned promises. But as we turn the corner towards the new year, two new blogs from our old friends have emerged! Check out Michelle M.’s Cooper blog at Cooper’s Corner AND Craig’s new TV discussion blog at Our T.V. Night (hit refresh a whole bunch of times to check out the different banner graphics).
#5. We’re days away from A Cocky & Rude Christmas Carol … are you excited? Do you care? The C&R-style take on Charles Dickens’ classic tale will post in six parts beginning on Christmas day. You know the classic story … but do you know this story? Find out December 25-30th.
This week’s runners up: the season finale of American Horror Story, the trailer for The Hobbit, this pen, this guy’s killer ass, the trailer for Prometheus, baked acorn squash, Mama Polt and hardcore gay pornography.
What’s your Friday Five?
Guess what? It’s Friday! Yippie Skippy! This week Michelle and I decided to each contribute 2.5 Friday favorites to everyone’s favorite Cocky & Rude Friday feature: It’s The Friday Five!
1) American Horror Story. (Michelle) Why are there flies on those apples…? My favorite show of the new season! The storyline keeps moving along with neat little twists. Last night’s was fantastic – too bad I had already read about it on the internet :(. Jessica Lange plays my favorite character. She does a wonderful job playing someone you love to hate and hate to love. Tate and Moira are other characters that tread the line between sympathetic and despicable. Guest spots by Mena Suvari, Zachary Quinto and Eric Stonestreet keep the show fresh. And there’s just the right amount of gruesome to satisfy this horror fan. If you’re not watching, you should be.
2) Hot chocolate. (Michelle) Hurray! It’s hot chocolate season. I like to throw a couple Hershey’s kisses in mine to make it extra chocolatey. And a splash of peppermint schnapps doesn’t hurt either.
3) This. (Michelle)
3.5) This. (Adam) (Even though everyone has already seen it because I shared it on Facebook.) (And even though it’s missing an apostrophe.) It’s so funny!
4) The Hunger Games trilogy. (Adam) Mikey raved about it … so I decided to give it a chance. Ever since I graduated from college (with a bachelor’s degree in English) I’ve strayed away from that whole ‘reading’ thing. I few books here and there, but overall I’m a book burnout. I started reading the first book in Montreal and (according to my Kindle) I’m now 61% of the way through the third. It’s a lot of fun (even though it’s a young adult series) and I can’t wait for the movie! Have you seen the trailer yet? It looks sooooo good!
5) Chinese Food. (Adam) I recently discovered that my local Chinese Restaurant’s recipes for vegetable lo mein and spring rolls are vegan (or so they claim), and now I can’t get enough! Noodles, broccoli, weird looking mushrooms that they probably found growing in the sludge next to the dumpster, assorted other mystery vegetables … omg! Spring rolls stuffed with random nondescript and often colorless vegetables all coated in a crispy deep-fried shell? PLUS they claim that it’s all “healthy” Chinese food! Who cares if they’re lying? Nom nom nom nom nom nom nom!!
Runners Up This Week: staying in bed until 5 minutes before you’re supposed to leave for work (because the bed is warm and the apartment is cold) and then running around like a maniac to get ready, snuggling with Spring until she attacks, getting surprise gifts in the mail from Michelle M., getting calendars in the mail from Polt, Beavis & Butt-Head, and of course: hardcore gay pornography.
