My day job office is in the process of moving, and we’re a little bit homeless right now, so everyone’s been given the option to work from home. I have long lamented the fact that I have to put on pants and show up to the office every day, so I was very much looking forward to this week. But you know what? Staying home all day all by yourself is a little bit boring. It’s been a weird week of sitting on the couch with bad posture, folding laundry on my lunch break, and yelling at the dog to pipe down. The jury is still out on whether working from home is a good thing or not.
Here’s what I did this week when I wasn’t working from home.
What I Wrote
I did a recap of someone else’s pin test of unicorn poop. Yes, it’s as amazing as it sounds.
I also cooked stuff in the crockpot that looks like plain old horse poop. It wasn’t terrible. But that doesn’t mean it was good.
On Teh Internets
I’m famous, you guys! The Daily Dot did a story on bloggers making fun of Pinterest, and my little old Pintester blog made the list! Also, that’s my mug plastered to the top of the story, and my ass at the bottom of the story. My ass is famous, too.
What I Read
Something More: Excavating Your Authentic Self by Sarah Ban Breathnach. Good book– made me think of some things I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise. I had a little trouble following sometimes. It seemed a little scattered to me, but it may just be that I’m not used to this narrative style.
To Wed a Wild Lord by Sabrina Jeffries. Loved it! Gabe was one of my favorite heroes to read and Virginia was a really fun heroine. I loved the story and can’t wait to see the conclusion of the mystery in the next book!
Sad news: Brandon Houlihan, famed designer of Pintester and awesome day job coworker, is leaving Brooks Bell. Booo, hiss, I say, because I am selfish and wish to keep Brandon forever and always, but I am grudgingly happy for him, because, you know, he’s leaving for a good thing, blah blah blah. I shall miss you, Brandon.
But, since Brandon is leaving (still booo and hiss), we are hiring a junior designer. Tell your friends.
If you want to keep up with me on a minute by minute basis and just can’t wait to find out what the next piece of gray matter I toss up on the Internets will be, you can follow me on Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest.
