File Under: Current Reads (Adulting by Kelly Williams Brown)
(Thanks Katie for the suggestion/in-house book rental program, we’re such an amazing community)
Adulting. If you are a young(ish) adult and you constantly feel like a failure, because you don’t fit the image of what you have in mind of being an adult (My Adult Vision: Loving my job, Wearing High Heels and drinking coffee- straight from the coffee pot housed in the kitchen, not the one that Starbucks has doctored up by infusing: 10 teaspoons of sugar, three inches of coolwhip and mini chocolate chips)
(See Above, what adulthood has looked like to me since 1989, when my dad gave me “business barbie”)
This book is therapeutic, refreshing and inspiring. It will slowly wipe away the implanted ideals of what being an adult is according to one’s parents. “You don’t have to call everytime the “Purge” commercial comes on TV. It’s just a movie. You are an adult!”- my mom and/or dad, depending on who will answer the phone at 2am when I’m scared. This book is also going to help me no longer feel like “Joey” from beloved childhood show “Full House”.
I often feel like (uncle) Joey, because he’s the guy who never really dates… is always pulling pranks… likes cartoons… is the additional fixture in everyone else’s life and hasn’t really ever made it on his own. Poor Joey.
IN a world full of Uncle Jesses and Dannys we need Joeys too. Except, I don’t want to be a Joey. You see? Also, as a girl, I don’t like to compare myself to a dude, but it’s better than identifying with the Cathy Comic Strip. (Oh Andy Samberg, you silly man)
I’m not hanging out with the right people. If I were, I would’ve seen this hilarious trailer when it came out… a long time ago. Still, this is brilliant.
File Under: Saturday Nights & Deal Breakers.
Him: “It’s a Wonderful Life… I’ve never heard of that movie. When did it come out?”
Me: It’s a Christmas Classic… with Jimmy Stewart.
Him: “It’s in black and white?”
Him: Oh, no.
Me: What’s your favorite movie?
Him: “Raising Arizona”
File Under: This never gets old but, your eggs do.
File Under: Etsy Gold
I love Etsy finds. This gem is only 20 dollars. I think it would be funny to invite a group of people that I don’t know very well over to a “party” at my place. When the guests arrive at said party, I could be dressed as Jessica Fletcher and make them play this game all while staying in character and having the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack playing in the background. Occassionally, I could make a scene, have everyone stop so I could notate something important on my typewriter. I have no real interest in this game or Angela Lansbury as Jessica Fletcher. However, I do have a serious interest in amusing myself. It would be hilarious to watch people react to these events throughout the night.
