I know. This has absolutely nothing to do with food, but it’s still something that got into my head and I had to write about it. In the real world, I work in social media. I pay a lot of attention to what’s going on in the world of Social Media and PR, and I find myself analyzing how a situation should’ve been handled versus how it was handled. I really saw this as a missed opportunity for greatness. And right now, I’m totally pulling the “It’s my blog! I can write what I want!”.
Over the past few days, I’ve seen numerous stories about Beyonce’s publicist wanting some unflattering photos removed from Buzzfeed from her Super Bowl Performance.
I’m not even going to pretend that if someone posted a photo like that of me on the Interwebz, I wouldn’t be freaking out and completely flipping my shit. I’d untag myself immediately, then obsess over it. I’d think to myself: “WHY DID I EVER THINK THAT FACE WAS A GOOD IDEA?!” I’d beat myself up over it (And I consider myself to have pretty decent self-esteem). I think most women would. Society has taught us that we have to appear perfect at all times.
I leave for San Francisco in two days. TWO DAYS! Did I mention part of the trip includes a day in Sonoma? Wine tasting? Why yes, yes it does. I really want to visit Murphy-Goode, Rodney Strong, the Kendall Jackson Wine Center, & La Crema. Any other suggestions for me?
On that note, my dresser is currently covered with neat little pre-packing piles of outfits for the trip. I can be a little bit OCD when it comes to packing.
I totally love that someone googled “Matt Bomer unfair” to find my blog. It really is unfair that he’s playing for the other team, but goodness that man is gorgeous.
I had a drink with bourbon in it last night & I liked it. It was the bocce ball from Pele’s Wood Fire. I know, I go there all.the.time., but the food really is stellar… especially the smoked artichoke fonduta. Try it!
I skipped the gym this morning in favor of sleep. I just don’t feel like working out this week. Although I did have a pretty great 3-mile run in the rain last night & I’m starting to feel like my runmojo is returning.
I bought 50 Shades of Grey for my flight. Shut up. I know, I’m totally behind. Leave me alone.
Is it Friday yet?
Happy Friday! Are you as stoked that its Friday as I am? It’s been a long, busy week & my brain is pretty much fried. So here we go… 5 Random Things About Me!
1) I love Britney Spears way more than any 27-year-old adult woman should. I saw her in concert last summer & dressed as her for Halloween in college. Oh, & I still want her & Justin Timberlake to get back together.
They say patience is a virtue. I call bullshit. Why can’t hurry up & let’s do this be a virtue?
You may or may not have noticed, but over the past few days, this blog has been up & down.
If I knew how to black out my blog for today in protest, I would. But I don’t.
So like The Bloggess, I’m merely stating my protest & giving information on why SOPA sucks.
Oh & SOPA? Tess & I have just one question for you:
WHERE HAS ALL THE RUM GONE?
(Yep. That’s going to get censored due to piracy.)
Per The Oatmeal’s request, I am pirating the shit out of this gif:
Yesterday, I ran 10 miles with Ashley, had Stacey & Stephanie over & watched an FSU victory over Duke.
Today, I mowed the lawn, went grocery shopping & ran another 3 miles.
Tomorrow, I will get up, go to work & probably come home & run some more.
There’s something noticeably missing from my days – my husband.
