Happy Friday, friends! My favourite day of the week has come ‘round again… before the weekend begins, let’s confess, though, OK?
I confess… that I almost got shot - not once, but TWICE – this week. Imagine!!! OK, so the first time was on Saturday at the Bayshore mall, in the line for Starbucks, and it turned out it was just a little girl behind me and her balloon popped. But for a split second, I was ready to hit the deck. The second time, I was out for a walk one evening this week, and as I strolled around one of the quieter parts of town, I came upon a guy out shooting his BB gun at raccoons in a tree on his property. But again – almost hit the deck. Or shit my pants. One or the other.
I confess… that I might need to re-think my strategy for what happens if someone starts shooting at me. At Bayshore, Lindsay was like, “Yeah, I was looking around to where the best place was to run to!” And my instinct is apparently to lie face-down on the floor. Perhaps not the most pro-active approach to being shot at?
I confess… that I’m seriously contemplating renting the most recent Paranormal Activity movie tonight. It’s come ‘round to that time of year when I start to get the itch to watch scary movies, and this one has been on my to-watch list for a while now. This might just be the night…
I confess… that I was SO ridiculously, irrationally happy this week when my boy Derrick won season 16 of Big Brother. It’s been a long time since I’ve been caught up in BB hype, and it’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed watching a player as much as I enjoyed watching Derrick this season. He was definitely one of the smartest players I’ve ever seen – strategically and socially. I think he 100% deserved to walk away with the big prize, and any other end result would have been a travesty.
I confess… that my adoration for Derrick proves that I’m kind of a grown up now. Jill, 10 years ago, even 5 years ago? She woulda been alllllll over Cody like white on rice. That boy is shmexy. I won’t lie, I did enjoy him quite a lot, and I did love that he and Derrick stayed loyal to their Hitmen alliance. But at the end of the day, I wanted the family man who masterminded everything to take home the coin, not the cutie with the perfect face and big muscles.
I confess… that I did find Derrick to be quite attractive, though. I felt hurt on his behalf when earlier this summer, Zingbot basically told him he was the only unattractive male in the house. Not cool, Zingbot! Not cool at all!
I confess… that I’m already missing my Big Brother pals. I really enjoyed most of the houseguests this year. The only one that REALLY got on my nerves was Devin, and he was ousted long ago. The likes of Zach, Frankie, Cody, Caleb, Donny, Nicole, Hayden, even Victoria, and, of course, Derrick, really grew on me and I enjoyed watching them all this summer.
I confess… that I’ve been snacking so much on weekends lately that it makes me sad to think of no chips this weekend. But I really have to re-teach myself not to buy chips anymore. *sigh*
I confess… that one night this past week, I ate half a bag of chocolate chips. I’m hopeless, you guys. Hopeless!
I confess… that I’m so excited for Halloween this year. It falls on a Friday – as you know, my favourite day of the week – and I’m already dreaming up the fun I want to get into that day. And yes, I will be indulging in some treats. That’s why I have to be good in the meantime… I need to deserve those treats!
I confess… that sometimes, in my head, I pretend Car Rally isn’t even happening. I think that’s why I’m so excited for Halloween. It’s in the life after Car Rally. The life I can’t wait to get to…
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and if you live in an area getting the amazing weather that we’re getting, make sure you get out and enjoy this Indian Summer!! :)
