I have some random quotes queued up in my phone’s notes. As I scanned through them, I noticed a theme with half of them. They’re about food and drink. So here’s a themed quote of the week for ya:
“When the guys are over, I’ll socially drink Rockstar.” ~McJosh
“I’m having something that feels like hunger in my stomach.” ~Freddy
“You don’t want to cook by blacklight?”~Tracy
“I know how you love Halloween.” ~Maren
“Who doesn’t?!” ~Steph
“Hey kids; forget eating. We’re foosing!” ~Megs
“Doesn’t ice cream just fill in the cracks?” ~Me
“It does. I want all my cracks filled.” ~Maren
“Once I start, I can’t stop. It’s like no portion control in my dessert brain.” ~Rachel the Aussie
Do you remember what you were doing the afternoon of New Year’s Eve? I remember one of the items on my busy* agenda: stopping by Laura’s with Maren to make up a song about the depressing month of January with Annalisa as well. That’s my sister and my two cousins and I must say, our free-style song absolutely caught the glorious depression that is the month of January.
Welcome to the funk that is the first month of the year.
And right now, I have nothing inspiring or funny to write.
I blame January.
What a let down. Seriously.
So instead, how about I’ll just tell you that I received a gift in the mail today that briefly brought me out of the funk (oh, and I played dodgeball and worked out so that helps, too). Rich Stowell sent me a signed copy of his book, Nine Weeks. I read one chapter a few months ago when I helped edit it so I’m excited to read the entirety. I’ll let ya know what I think when I finish.
Did I mention I love owning books signed by the author?
*Thanks to Maren, Megs, Steig, Steph, and everybody at Christi’s for keeping me busy and entertained on a holiday that I’m not so much a fan of.
“What? This is what we do on Thursdays.” ~Maren
“It’s Thursday night cuddles.” ~Megs
“You’re petting my head.” ~Maren (to Steph)
“Let’s practice hand holding.” ~Steph
“Oh I’m the worst at hand holding. I get bored.” ~Maren
