Going to see the Old 97’s play tonight for the third time this year. Someone asked me the other day why I’d want to see the same band that many times; why not break it up a bit and see some other shows? There are plenty of other bands I love to see live, but given the choice between two bands, I’ll pick the Old 97’s every time because there is no one else that manages to...
I was prepared to throw a serious fit if TSA tried to take my candy-filled gift tins (which are my gifts for several people this year because I don’t have any money) away from me at security. I admit I was a little paranoid after hearing about the woman in Massachusetts that had her cupcakes taken away. Luckily, all that happened was an uncomfortable body scan and a very uncomfortable body...
I think I’ve spent more time with my neti pot than with other people this week.
Stupid. People do not dig thru trash looking for Jesus. Fact.– Text from Rachel. It’s best left out of context.
Okay people, I’m well on my way to sinus infection #2 of the last 2 1/2 months. I eat fairly healthy, I’m active, I get plenty of Vitamin C. I get sick way too often and I’m seriously over it. So help me out: what are your tips for boosting the immune system?

Just a reminder to my nursing friends - I also have another blog where I post things relevant to nursing school or the nursing profession, if you’re interested. I also LOVE submissions from current students or nurses, so please go submit a story, experience, or resource if you like. Thanks!
I’m fairly proud of myself, so I’m going to write about this even though I know none of you really care, and are probably thinking, “Whoopdee-freaking-do, you worked out today? I do that every day. Big deal.” WELL IT IS A BIG DEAL FOR ME AND I WILL NOT LET YOU RUIN THIS. Ahem. Where were we? I’ve been working out pretty consistently (at least three times a...
From the other room, I just heard my husband call our dog “Kenny Doggins.”
I got a lot of emails from people saying, ‘Why can’t you just keep it clean?...– Louis CK on emails from people who have seen some of his clean stand-up [full interview here] (via nprfreshair) Love him.
Annnd cue the second cold of the season. Let’s hope this one doesn’t turn into another sinus infection. Ugh. :(
Also, sorry for the duplicate post (if you follow both my blogs), but the video warranted a post in both. :)
Apparently a really quick and easy way to get some people to make complete asses of themselves is to say something negative about Rick Perry on Facebook. Then you just sit back and watch the ignorance and hatred come spewing out.
Need some new workout tunes.
I find that I will work out ten times as hard and twice as long if I’m listening to music with a strong, energetic beat. That being said, I listen to a lot of the same stuff and I’m getting bored. So, what are your favorite songs to listen to when you work out? What gets you really pumped up? P.S. I’m not nearly as picky with my musical preferences when I’m working out,...

Mad Men/ Arrested Development crossover. Hysterical.
Hey, it’s 71 degrees in Knoxville, TN right now…and it’s 39 (but “feels like” 29) here in TX. I’m pretty sure this is the work of some higher power, punishing me for leaving Knoxville and moving back here.
At least she's honest.
Me to 3-year-old niece: Caroline, I want you to be a little nicer to me.
Caroline: I'm trying, but I just can't!

Before you get all offended by the title, just go read it. It’s a long article, but I like the overall gist of the message: it doesn’t matter whether you agree with someone’s life choices, or even if you just can’t accept who they are (I add that in because I don’t believe being gay is a choice - but hey, even if you do believe it is a choice, this still applies to...
Mariah Carey And Justin Bieber Tell A Christmas... →
npr: Blogger Linda Holmes (@nprmonkeysee) explains what Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber are doing in their new video that premiered last night. Here’s a taste: 0:13 Mariah “Mannequin” Carey is standing against a fake stone wall next to a pile of presents. In the spirit of holiday charity, she has given her pants to the poor and is now getting by on a bra she recovered from the lost and found...
