Despite the long hiatus from blogging, I wasn’t really doing anything super fabulous that would have kept me away from the computer. In fact, I spent a good chunk of my holiday weekend watching Season 1 of The Wire. That show is addicting! I had several random dreams all involving The Wire last night. And I now find myself looking at Baltimore and its residents in a new light.
And can we talk about how ridiculously attractive Idris Elba is? And did you know he’s British? I died when I heard that. Now I need to hear an interview of his so that I can die again. Oh my, the hotness. Seriously – if he tried to mug me in Baltimore, I’m pretty sure I’d just give him everything and then a long awkward hug.
I took a bunch of pics of my Thanksgiving dinner so I’ll save that for another post (maybe tomorrow). Thanksgiving was spent with just Jeremy and it was awesome. No travel. No stress.
I had a very disappointing Black Friday shopping day so there isn’t much to report on that front. The company was fun (hey Theresa!) but overall, the sales were lackluster. I hesitated on a pair of boots in the store and then looked them up online (for a slightly better deal). But hesitated to buy them last night online. I went to buy them this morning and they are sold out of my size on the site with the REALLY good deal! That’ll teach me to wait on purchasing super cute grey boots.
I tried to run yesterday after taking a week off and my knee starting to hurt after 1 mile and now it STILL hurts. UGH.
I have restarted p90x as of this morning. Jeremy wanted to do the program again and convinced me to do it with him by telling me just how much he enjoyed working out with me in the morning. I’m a sucker for a compliment. I’ll try not to blog about the program again since I think it bores the majority of readers! Just know that I’m not following the diet closely because hello? It’s the frickin’ holidays and I want to drink champagne (I’m currently obsessed with champagne and sparkling wines).
Lastly – I have my ears pierced twice. In the second hole, I have a pair of 1/4 karat diamond earrings. I hardly ever mess with these earrings but noticed that one of them was looking extra crusty yesterday. So I thought it was a good idea to take the earrings out, clean them thoroughly and perhaps give my ears a break from wearing earrings. I totally forgot that I had replaced the backing (the original ones screwed onto the post) with a cheapo plastic backing from one of my other earrings. And now I can’t get the son of a bitch off.
Jeremy pulled out pliers and I sort freaked out. I envisioned him ripping the entire earring out of my ear. But today I’m really freaking out. I can’t get the backing off! I broke 2 fingernails trying to pull the backing off and it didn’t budge. Someone suggested I try baby oil or vaseline. Any ideas? I don’t remember the plastic piece being that difficult to put on the earring post. But seriously – I am a dumbass. I should have just gone to the store for the appropriate backing.
So there you have it. I’m alive, super boring and freaking out over my ear.
How was everyone’s holiday weekend?
