Random Tuesday – Let’s hear it for Fall semester! edition


Once again, we’ve come to Tuesday, which – let’s face it – is the BEST blogging day.

  • My, how I do love Fall semester; the fresh faces, the idea of learning new things, Football games, cooler weather… and loads of work!
  • I woke up at 5:45 yesterday, got to work by 7:45, didn’t take lunch, left at 5, took the family to dinner, then ran 3 miles. It’s a miracle I didn’t fall asleep on the couch until almost 10.
  • Last Friday, Ash and I had burgers for lunch, Harpoon IPA (OMG so yummy) and saw Our Idiot Brother, which was actually better than I expected.
  • I like that Elliot is 4 now but he’s like a ticking time bomb. He’s adorable and sweet one second – following directions and being so good – then the next, he’s yelling NO! at the top of his lungs and refusing to do anything. I worry he inherited my rage issues.
  • I have to just get this out there: I have forsaken Starbucks for Dunkin’ Donuts. Surely, the quality is just not as good but their medium is only 3 bucks and their iced lattes are really pretty serviceable.
  • BUT, I did get S-Bucks on Sunday and the treat receipt helps to make my weekly Target trip a leeetle bit more enjoyable.
  • Speaking of Target, their clearance end-caps have really not been as good as they used to. I used to come home with tons of super cheap usable things. Probably for the best; I’m still broke.
  • Is anyone else ready for Halloween? I didn’t think I was until I saw them setting up the Spirit store in the mall. I am SO ready.
  • Elliot wants to be Iron Man for Halloween and I think Ash is going to be the Cap. And Isaac? Baby Thor! I don’t know who I’m gonna be. Either Hulk or Hawkeye.
  • I had a freshman come into my office yesterday for class help and I do believe he fell instantly in love with me. I mean, he was fawning all over the place. It was semi-awkward but I kept my composure. When he left, my boss and I (who overheard) had a good laugh about it.
  • I have the Monday Night Football theme running through my head. It must be time!
  • I have to go post some stuff on a bulletin board now so I’m out.

Man Candy is model Johan Akan, who seems to be making the rounds on the models sites. I know he’s French and he once posed nude with Catherine Denueve. And he always looks good in whatever he’s wearing. Enjoy!

  1. Ewww. Next time, how about some female eye candy?! Just sayin’ . . .

    Glad things are back in session for you at the school. And you have a fan club! Sweet.

  2. Halloween is such an awesome holiday — I can’t wait for it! It’s also Munchkin’s birthday, so she’s, like, “Halloween is my birthday! I’m gonna be a princess!” Seeing the Spirit store near us setting up has amplified this times a thousand.

    Yesterday sounds absolutely exhausting. I can only dream of having the energy to do even half of what you did!

    Happy Tuesday 😀

  3. I love occasionally getting a latte at Starbucks, but oh my isn’t it so pricey? Ouchy goes my pocketbook…correction my husband’s wallet. lol. I found making my own lattes at home are not only far less expensive, but taste better because no matter where I buy coffee it’s always too weak and/or has too much syrup in it. Ugh, I hate when my flavored lattes are way sweet. Check out buying the Torani syrups (I use the sugar-free and they are good) use about 1 oz per 12 oz of coffee and top with Reddi-Wip. Yummy!

  4. I love the whole “get back to a schedule” part of fall. It feels so good! Of course the freshman LOVED you! Why wouldn’t he? 😉 Yesterday sounds extremely long though! I was tired just readiing about it!

  5. Following up on the comment you left on my blog. I have to agree with you on Hurricane Andrew, anyone I know who lived through that knows when to take a hurricane seriously around here and I tend to only listen to them, they’ve never steered me wrong. But who would have thought there would be so much damage in Vermont of all places???
