this is my boyfriend at a music festival

so dreamy 

They tried to kick him out because no masks were allowed?? Uh what? So he just pulled the trick of running into the crowd and losing the security guards, and then continued dancing around as Chewbacca.

Right now

Ryan and the kids are out at a music festival all weekend and I'm just at home watching the third episode in a row of the reality TV show Utopia. It's terrible but great reality television that I can't stop watching. You know how it is.

I've been on a real reality TV kick lately I am not proud to say. Between this, Hotel Hell, Masterchef and Undercover Boss I am starting to feel ashamed of myself.

So I haven't written much lately, and for good reason. My life is boring! And I've been too busy and tired to un-boring it. I worked 22 days in a row, had a day off then worked 8 days in a row, had another day off and now I'm doing 6 days a week. I've begun to insist I get Wednesdays off so this doesn't keep happening.

Here are some of my latest instagram pics. You can see, other than taking a bit of time to paint I've done nothing but wait for buses, have long hair, go to work and look at my dog.

Seriously though, just look at that mermaid hair. I'm so happy I chose to grow it out. When it's all washed and wavy I feel so pretty!

So um ... what's new with you?

How many tattoos do you have? Part thirteen - what?

This is just kind of a joke tattoo... pretty self explanatory. I wanted some script behind my ear and thought it would be funny if it said "what?" I got this from Cody Walsh when he worked at Tattoo Zoo.

The worst thing about getting a tattoo behind your ear is how loud the machine sounds! And someone has to be like, folding your ear out of the way.

Oh, and see how much hair is shaved around the tattoo? That's because I thought I could just shave the area myself. I grabbed a disposable razor and just started hacking away, like "I'm helping!" but I couldn't see what I was doing at all and ended up shaving way too much hair. Whoopsie.

I didn't care, I had kind of a hackjob haircut at the time anyway.

I always always always forget I have this tattoo. I can't see it at all unless it's in a photo of me from the side with my hair up.

Any of you have a tattoo behind your ear?

Reading in 2014 - Book 27 - One More Thing by BJ Novak

So this book was written by BJ Novak. Yes, that BJ Novak. 
Ryan from The Office.

I hate to admit it but I was not expecting much. I knew nothing of this book before I started and thought it was going to be just another semi-funny celebrity autobiography like Mindy Kaling's book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?


It is amazing. It's a smart fiction book, a collection of short stories that made me think. A lot.

So much so that after each story I thought to myself how a person could teach an entire literature class just using this book. You could have someone write a paper on each and every story. There's morals, lessons and humor. There are subtle call-backs to previous stories in the later ones.

Absolutely read it, it's great. 9.5/10
