On the drought, clean hair, Bradley Cooper, and spiders.

It’s Talk To Us Tuesday and it’s Random Tuesday, so let’s kill two birds with one stone and link up with both!

Talk2UsWith Impulsive Addict and Shawn 


With Stacy Uncorked

  • Remember yesterday, when I was grumpy about having no water to shower with in the morning and having to come to work feeling like a scuzzball?  Well…nothing like absence to make the heart grow fonder.  When I got home last night, the water was back on, and that shower felt glorious.  I will never take it for granted again.
  • I’m still very much appreciating it this morning.  I can’t stop running my fingers through my silky, smooth hair.  I even let one of the guys here at the office touch it.  He agreed, it’s very very nice.  After a full day of my hair feeling like straw, I now FULLY appreciate my clean head of hair. ;)
  • So.  I’ve kinda been laughing off this drought, telling people how much I love the heat and the sun and who cares if it ever rains again.  Well.  When my town starts running out of water, I start to take it a little more seriously…My morning shower is très important.  Bring on the rain.
  • I may be a little behind the times, but last night I finally rented The Hangover Part 2.  I’m a fan of the original, and I must say, I thought the sequel was pretty good as well.   The one thing it does seem to have done successfully?  Finally won me over on Bradley Cooper…


  • I know, I know.  Who doesn’t love Bradley Cooper?  Well, me.  Kinda.  I didn’t dislike him, but I never really got on-board the Bradley Cooper train.  However, last night, while watching the flick…Yeah, I was kinda diggin’ him.

  • There’s this song…I heard it months ago on the radio, and it was literally one of those pull-over-and-have-a-good-cry songs.  I’ve avoided it ever since, because it’s literally that heart-wrenching.  The last couple of days, though…I can’t stop listening to it.  It pretty much captures exactly how I feel about the loved ones I’ve lost in the past few years.  And that line… “Mid-February shouldn’t be so scary”…it’s like it was taken straight out of my head.  Beautiful, bittersweet song.

  • OK!  Enough of the sad stuff!!
  • I think I’ve mentioned this several times lately, but I seriously can’t wait to get the hell outta Dodge.  Road-trippin’ with my momma to Belleville next weekend for a wedding?  Should be perfect timing.  Then my holidays start at the end of the month.  I’m so ready.
  • Despite longing for my holidays, I feel July is going too fast.  Which means my birthday is coming too fast.  I’ve always loved my birthday, but I’ve officially reached that point in life where I hate getting older.  Last year, I decided not to go up in age.  I think I’ll do the same again this year.  Just stick at 27 again.  27 is a good age – not too old, not too young.  29 is definitely too close to 30…
  • Anyone recall my ol’ pal The Spider?

  • Yeah.  He was big and nasty.  But my bloggy friend Nadine assured me that if you’re all Zen with the spiders, you can co-exist quite peacefully.  She claims to shower with one every morning.  I don’t think I could handle it.  Anyways, Nadine’s post this morning proves that even her “Zen philosophy” has been shaken after she had a far-too-close encounter with a spidey!  Eeeeeek!!

Happy Tuesday, all! :)

Whoaa! That Spider is HUGE! That's so big I might be afraid to kill it!

Connie Weiss said...

I watched The Hangover II over the weekend and it was good....but that monkey was VERY inappropriate! HA!

Nadine showers with a spider?

I actually didn't like the first Hangover but I'm willing to see the 2nd one, just haven't yet.

Stacie said...

I love showers and hot water, even 1 day without is too long. Glad you got it fixed!

VandyJ said...

Ha, I love showers after a camping trip--they feel so very good.
A spider tried to share my shower this morning--he got himself washed down the drain for his efforts.

Nicole said...

I'm right there with ya on age girly! This ks freaking me out a bit :). Although I can't ever remember my age anyway so whatever :).

Nadine Hightower said...

hahahahahahahahaha it has shaken me to my core!! My boob is off limits to spiders!!

That zen crap is for the birds!

Mrs. Match said...

EEK! Enough with the creepy spider pictures. You ladies are killing me!!

I just couldn't get into the Hangover 2. I don't know, it just wasn't funny to me. Maybe I was grumpy that day or something. I'm not a big Bradley Cooper fan-he's always going to be that jerk from Wedding Crashers to me.

Impulsive Addict said...

We may have to break up. How can you NOT lust after Brad? He's amazingly hot. Cocky--but hot.

I bet you'd be disgusted if I told you that I don't always shower every day. It doesn't happen often but occasionally I skip out! Don't judge me, Jill!!

We were in a situation a couple years ago... a water something broke and we had NO water in half of the city for almost a week. THANK GOODNESS we were headed out on vacation a day into it. The neighbors came and used our pool water in 5 gallon buckets to flush toilets.
