    keeping up with martina

    *insert same sorry i’ve abandoned this space again greeting* *insert next sentence about how i didn’t mean to be away this long but life got in the way and time just moves so fast when you’re an adult (or an “adult”)* Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I know I’ve been quiet here lately and the truth is, there’s lots of stuff I want to talk about but it’s hard to write when everytime you sit down to put fingers to keyboard, you wind up instead falling down some Youtube hole and then falling asleep with your laptop on your chest. To try to combat this, I’ve…

    channel surfing: fall programming

    It’s that time of the year! The one where the days get shorter, your pants get longer and all of your favorite shows are back on TV. We all know that I watch a lot of television so my excitement is pretty palpable. I’m here today with a round up my favorites/the ones I’m most excited for. That way, we could figure out which shows we have in common and then we could have lengthy discussions about the lives of fictional characters. It will be fun, promise. Ready? Let’s go! This is Us – LAWWWDDD. I have so much to say about this show. I don’t want to say much…

    i got your w(h)ine with dinner right here.

    I’M HERE! I’M ALIVE! I feel like I have to make that announcement every so often because I tend to neglect this space. So maybe my announcement should be I’M HERE! I’M ALIVE! I’M A BAD BLOG MOM. (not momblog- def not one of those) Truth is, life happened. I’ve got a few things going on (that I will tell you about eventually) and honestly, that back issue I’ve been having (I talked about it a few posts ago), hasn’t gone away. It got a little better, now today it’s like “I’m here! Ready to fuck shit up”. Happy Monday. Otherwise, I’ve been OK. A little blah but OK. It…

    hashtag mindy

    Raise your hand if you watched the newest Mindy Project episode at midnight, when it went up. if you haven’t watched yet, go and do that now and then come back. one, for possible spoilers and two, so we’re all on the same page. ok, are we all good now? I think, since I can go on for days about this, I’m going to just stick to the highlights. Also, what I’m going to do to try to keep this entertaining, I’m going to search Tumblr for gifsets and then in the tradition of Hashtag Humpday, I’m going to hashtag the shit out of everything. Just go with me. #morganjustwantstobeincluded #beyoncepadthai #warriorname…

    midweek random roundup

    I probably should have saved this post for Friday since it fits the Friday Five description, but I’m a rebel and play by my own rules. It’s been a pretty busy week so let’s get started, shall we? MINDY IS BACK: !! Season 4 premiered on Tuesday and all is right in my world. It was an extended episode and, honestly, I savored every extra second. I won’t say too much because 1) we’d be here all day and 2) spoilers. I mean, I assume there are some people who are not like me and happened to be up early enough on Tuesday and were able to watch the episode before work. before…

    Mindy, Etsy and Taylor Swift

    How come during the week Friday seems like it will never get here and then it comes and it’s like “woah, Friday already?” Maybe its just me. My work schedule sucks. Anyway, I haven’t done a Friday Five Favorites whatever in a while so I figured, even though nothing I have to say goes with each other, why not? I’ll make it work. Guys, it’s September. You know what that means? MINDY COMES BACK THIS MONTH! And Hulu is now offering a no commercial option. All is right with the world. Also, full disclosure, I chose this picture because I love Mindy’s lipstick color. Now that that’s out in the open… before…

    A month of Mindy?

    Hey hey, it’s Friday! I’m back again with my favorites of the week except until last night, my week was pretty uneventful, for the most part. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I only have two things to write about but they’re pretty exciting, I promise. So, remember about two weeks ago when Fox lost their minds and canceled The Mindy Project? Sure you do. Well, our friends at Hulu swooped in a saved the day. They just ordered a 27 episode season! TWENTY SEVEN EPISODES!  That’s like, a month of Mindy! My second favorite thing this week is that I entered myself in to a photography contest!…

    it’s friday. here are some things.

    I swear, sometimes I think I should just hang up my blogging hat and walk away while I still have some of my sanity. I was off from work today so I decided that I was going to take a couple of hours and work on my post for tomorrow. That way I could do my nails tonight, which is something I haven’t done in like a week. and it’s driving me nuts. Of course, that didn’t work out as planned. I was about 80% done when I CLOSED MY BROWSER. So here we are, back at square one. I’ve never been one for sports but there’s a saying about hopping back…

    friday five – on a saturday

    I was sitting at lunch today mentally making a list of things to write about for my Friday Five. It was only after I made the list that I realized that today was Friday. It was a looong week, my friends. So now it’s 11:29 Friday night and I’m just starting to write my Friday Five post. procrastination at its finest. 1. It wouldn’t be a post from me if I didn’t mention Mindy so here we go. Tuesday’s episode – whoa, Mindy. If you haven’t watched it yet, go and do that now because I’m spoiling it in 3…2…1… OK. It was Peter’s last episode which makes me kind…

    playing catch up

    It’s been about a week since I’ve last posted and it feels like a lifetime. At work, we are going full force with our annual Silent Auction and guess who is running “lead”. That’s right, yours truly. We’re about a month behind, which is totally not my fault. I usually pick up the project when donations start to come in and they’re not rolling in like they usually do. It’s driving me nuts because I have a female Gordon Ramsey for a boss. Actually, she really reminds me of Abby from Dance Moms. Yes. It’s that bad. She’s been OK so far. I’m just waiting for the blowout. I get stressed thinking…
