I think I have Ebola, and here's why

If you follow me on Facebook, you know I stayed home sick today.

I may or may not have contracted Ebola and may or may not be high as Hell off of Benadryl.

So here are the reasons that are probably leading to me dying a slow death by drowning in a pile of my own snot.

Nice visual, eh?  You're welcome.

Costume Par-tay

I wanted to start off this post real quick like with a little shout out to all the new followers of my TBags.
Hey there!
I hope you are, at best, dismally impressed.
I spend minutes working on what I spew out of my mouthhole and onto the interwebs every couple of days.

I wanted to reach out and support Kristin, but seeing as I didn't actually know how these giveaways work, or how to promote them, I am SHOCKED, to say the least, of how many of you want to support ME as well.
Or maybe you just really, really want some free goodies.

Which is fine too.
Let's not kid ourselves.

Just Say Yes

It's Monday.
I had a rather successful and fulfilling weekend seeing as it started out on kind of a shitty note.

See, remember that Halloween Movie Marathon I was planning for?
Well, it didn't happen.
I had a slew of cancellations at the 11th hour and the last chunk of them happened as I was standing in Binny's.

The bright side?
I had yet to make any serious purchases for the evening. Besides booze, but that's alright with me.

But I was bummed.
So I went home and had a pity party to Bayou.
I really was upset.

I started doubting my likeability as a person, my ability to throw parties, the whole shebang.

Do I smell? Am I the smelly girl that people play nice around but really don't want to see?

Halloween Movie Night

I think my age is showing.

No worries, my coo is covered.
I'm just saying that this Halloween, although I am DEFINITELY in the spirit of the holidayz, I don't have much desire to figure out a good costume, or to wear said costume anywhere, or all that jazz.

No, this year I wanted to host a little spooky gathering with some ladies of the night, sit back, watch some scary movies, drink some spooky libations and eat some spooky food.

That's right, Martha Stewart the shit out of one night.

Well friends, that night is tomorrow.

And guess what I have planned?

Not a damn thing.

A typical morning

Every morning I wake up with my first alarm only to hit snooze and spend those next eight minutes "shopping" my closet for what to wear that day, deciding if I need rain boots, which coat, what accessories, what I need to bring for work, etc.
The next alarm goes off and I jump out of bed.
Not literally, I did that once and tripped over my phone cord, grabbed onto the drapery to brace myself, then took the entire thing down as I landed on my side.
Getting up the past few days has been a bit of a challenge.
See, I took my first hot yoga class over the weekend, and, while I have attended many in the past, it's been a spell since those days.
The instructor had me twisting into different poses that I wasn't familiar with and the chances of me breaking a rib seemed likely.
Needless to say I'm a bit busted.
Like your mom after a busy Tuesday.

Rough Patch

And I'm not talking about my heels.
Gross out.

No, I'm talking about how Bayou and I are running circles through a seemingly never ending cycle of who can out-degrade the other one.
Like, I might stab him in his sleep and maybe laugh about it.
Just kidding. Not really.

Running Makes me DO. Number TWO.


I have had a revelation.
A revelation in the skinnies!
Some may think that running is good cardio and burns calories and whips you into shape.
But those fools would be wrong.

What it triggers is another problem.

It's about to get shitty up in here. Lit-rally.

This is Halloween

What a sad sap I was last week. I hate those weeks!
I kicked it into high gear this weekend and forced myself to stop actin' a fool and start acting more like a normal human being.

I am sure you are glad as well.

I don't normally do weekend recaps but this one was jam packed with good times.
To me anyways.
I hardly left the house.
All I need to make me happy are mountains of Halloween decor just waiting to be assembled, and some decent weather to do it in!

The sads

If you follow me on Facebook, then you know I posted a sad comment last night.
Sorry people, it's not always sunshine and roses.

I am usually one to spew hilariousness, and sometimes rage, and sometimes some motivation, but the sads tend to stay on lock down.

Time...why you punish me?

And now I have Hootie and the Blowfish in my head.

After reading through some of my favorite blog posts today, I noticed a trend.
Reminiscing about where we were one year ago today.
I thought this was rather fitting, and, lucky for me, I have been blogging for over a year and can look back to what I said.
The beginning of October 2012 had my panties in quite a bunch, it seemed.
