Confessional Friday

I feel like I write the same intro to this every week so I'm just going to skip that and get right on to confessin'

I told y'all I was gonna get caught up on the Bachelorette and blog about it. (Because you all love my bachelor(ette) posts.) And I watched the first episode. And I blogged about it. But I have not gotten around to watching the second. And I mostly likely won't watch the third on Monday. Who am I?

I don't think the guys on this season are that attractive. I've heard lots of people saying that the guys this time are so much cuter than in the past. And they should be. It's Emily. But. Jef, Nate?, Ryan?, I don't remember names. Arie. Really only 3-5 stood out to me as "ooh look at that guy". Not even the long haired guy and you know how I am about those. Ali's season? Hello. Chris, Frank, Roberto, Kirk, Jason (who went home the first night so most of you probably don't remember him), umm Ty, even. Who was that other cute guy? Steve? So many!

And here's a super confession for you. That last paragraph just made me vom. Why did I even write that? Stupid.

Speaking of how I am about long haired guys. I kinda tried to hang out with one last night but he just hung out with my dog instead. Mosby gets all the attention.

I might shoot someone if I hear one more thing about a 4 day weekend. I get Monday off, yes. But I have to work from 8-12 tomorrow. Saturday. Ugh.

I don't actually have access to a gun, so I won't really shoot anyone. Unless I shoot them the bird. WHATUP.

I'm hungover.

Hangout Hangover

I think I might be dead.

I was on vacation from work/real life from Thursday afternoon until this morning for the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Lots of sun. Lots of booze. Lots and lots of music.

I saw:

Alabama Shakes
M. Ward
Paul Oakenfold
Chris Cornell
Young the Giant
Michael Franti & Spearhead
Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
G. Love & Special Sauce
Flaming Lips (performing Dark Side of the Moon)
Dave Matthews Band

* = my favorite shows
[none of those videos are from Hangout, fyi]

It was my second time to see Alabama Shakes and Chris Cornell. They didn't disappoint either.

Red Hot Chili Peppers rocked my world. I would pay to see them every day if it was a possibility.

I've never been a DMB fan but have always been told that would change once I saw him live. It didn't.

And of course, the day after my weekend that cost $700+, I got an email with the even better lineup for ACL along with a presale password for tickets. 


Music makes me poor.

Third Wheelin' HIMYM style

I spend most weekends third wheelin' it.

Rachel & Andrew are my Lily & Marshall and I am their Ted.

And I wouldn't have it any other way. Until I meet "the Father", that is.

And yes, we do play "Haaaaave you met Faye?"

Sometimes it works.

I have a few confessions...

It's finals week here at Ole Miss...and even though I finished my last final two years ago, I went out last night to "celebrate".

Whatever. I'm paying for it today.

[1 part 2]
I remember sending a Facebook message last night at 2am. But I don't remember what it said. And I don't want to know. Nor will I ever read the response. Those Facebook messages, they get me every time.

I'm on an "all fruits and veggies and vodka" cleanse this week. But I am dying for a bag of Cheetos. And I don't even eat them regularly.

I decided to make a rap playlist on Spotify. (I don't usually listen to rap.) I added 3 Plies songs, "Look at me now", "The Motto", and 25 Eminem songs.

[3 part 2]
I know every word to every Eminem song ever. It's a gift.

I really like the tall black socks trend that the boys here are doing. I like it a lot.

I'm seriously considering driving 7.5 hours to Leesburg, GA for Phillip Phillips' hometown visit.

What do you have to confess?

Thursday Thoughts

a.k.a. a cutesy name for a really random post

I have a new office at work. Like, my own office. With a door. And a nameplate. I'm fancy. (Not fancy enough for a moving crew, though. That's why I've been MIA. Moving EVERYTHING from upstairs to downstairs has kept me pretty busy.)

I've completely given up on the photo a day instagram challenge. I'm 9 days behind. I don't see myself coming back from that. But I'm still posting lots of pictures of my dog, beer bottles, and text messages. So follow me - wfayew

Ms. TONI ROSE won my Sneakpeeq giveaway, granting her a $15 giftcard to the online shop. (When I signed up, I ordered a pair of pearls...for free. After waiting 5 weeks for shipping (!!!), they arrived and I love them. But damn, that shipping.)

I saw Bush in concert Sunday night at Beale Street Music Fest. I'll write a real post about it later. For now, I'll just say...I didn't know a 46 year old man could be so sexy in a tank top. I love you, Gavin.

Though I vowed not to, I did watch American Idol last night. I can't miss out on my boy Phillip Phillips. It wasn't the same without Skylar. And by that, I mean it was boring. She brought the fire. However, for the first time all season...I enjoyed Joshua Ledet. Just in the James Brown song, though.

ONE WEEK until I'm on the beach for Hangout Fest. That means 1 week of eating only raw fruits and veggies, drinking a lot of water, and working out twice a day. (And once I get there I'll be binging on beer and burgers and get even fatter. It is what it is.)

Happy Thursday!

Are you as random as me today?
