It’s been a troubling week for me– not for any major reason, but just because I am in one of my (many) funks. When I am in one of these funks, I try very hard not to drag other people into the funk with me (although how fun would funk wrestling be?), and it takes a whole lot of energy. So, to those of you who have seen me walking around in a zombie-like state this week, there is my explanation.
To rectify (heh, rectify) this unfavorable state of being, I plan to drink a lot of wine, read some books, and organize something this weekend. Shut up. Organizing makes me feel better. It’s less disturbing than many a vice I could have.
I might post pictures Monday, but in the meantime, here’s what I’ve been up to:
What I Wrote
Frozen yogurt dots came to my blog, and then like 100 people pinned it and I got lots of traffic and cried happy tears of nerdy blogjoy.
I made a basil grande without basil in it. But you ingredient nazis can leave me alone, because I don’t think the basil would have improved it much.
I had a little bit of a crisis of faith in the tone of Pintester (specifically, really swear-y and crass) and put up an f-bomb poll. You can still respond to the poll, but I have pretty much decided that I am right and anyone who doesn’t like it can get the eff out. (Notice I didn’t drop the bomb here. See, I understand tone differences and appropriateness. Nyeh.)
My pedicure experiment from last June has found a new audience to tell me how weird it is. Yes, it’s weird. I still like it. (After all, I like all’a yous, and you’re weird, too.)
Annnnd, here on my blog, I gave recommendations on what to read this summer if you’d rather not feel like drowning yourself in the nearest body of water when you’re done. Happiness abounds.
On Teh Internets
In grand tradition, my German pancakes post on CraftFail got comments from people implying vaguely that I can’t possibly be this inept and must be faking these mess-ups. This does not hurt my feelings at all, partly because it happens all the time both on CraftFail and Pintester, but also because it means that people don’t really believe I can possibly be so craft impaired. I am willing to let people believe that.
What I Read
More Than a Stranger (Sealed With a Kiss #1) by Erin Knightley– Well done! Loved this debut novel from Erin Knightley. The relationship between the hero and heroine was really relatable and poignant to me. The banter had me laughing out loud. I loved Evie and her family, and I’m excited to see they’ll feature in her upcoming second novel as well! GREAT read, can’t wait to see more!
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.
