Phoning it in

Mr. Jonathan was home from work today after a long weekend away in Las Vegas.

So we knocked out some errands and took some naps.

Which leaves me with little to blog about.

Sometimes we need that.

Instead, I will be phoning it in.  Did you know I used to have hot pink hair?

That’s my best friend from college.

She decided to leave me and flee for Puerto Rico.

And then she came back.

And then she decided to leave me again and flee for India.

I cannot keep track.

I miss her with all my little heart.

Someday we will live in the same country again and all will be right with the world.

I know not everyone that reads this is from Minneapolis or LA…so…Where are you in the world?


Does everyone else…

purge their home of clutter and frantically clean after watching an episode of “Hoarders: Buried Alive”?

collect wine corks in vases as decoration?

hate the new intro for “White Collar”?

cut pizza with kitchen scissors?

love love love Lays Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper kettle chips?

wish it is was physically possible to sleep past 9am like you did when you were a teenager?


yeah, me too.


My Jonathan

I was going to write a long post with pictures and stories about Kat’s wedding reception, but I’m guessing you know how those go.  Plus, I’m sure she’ll post about it soon enough.

Instead, I would like to post my favorite picture from the night…

Love him.


p.s. In case you wanted to see what he looks like when he isn’t making silly faces, I have included a second picture:


Jonathan's real face

brains Brains BRAINS!

I have gotten 2 new hits on my blog from the search “In case of Zombie Apocalypse”.  I feel proud about that, but sad that the post it lead them to had nothing to do with zombies 😦

Luckily, I’m here to make up for that.

All of Mads’ current zombie knowledge:

1. The CDC finally got on the bandwagon and posted some zombie preparedness information.  Reading it got me legitimately nervous.

2.  The Bloggess pointed out what we all were thinking: why did they not include more information about swords as a protective measure?

3.  28 Days Later was a badass movie.

4.  I fear zombie apocalypse is closer than the rapture.  Why?  No, why not?

5.  Wikipedia and Carleton University suggest there would be no way mathematically to survive zombie apocalypse.  However, I’m fairly certain Zombieland directly contradicts that evidence.

6.  I was drunk and fell asleep while watching Zombieland, so I had to Google the ending.

That’s all I know, but I think it might help.

What’s your plan for zombie apocalypse?


The 10 minutes when my soul was sucked out

Let me just run you through the constant hell that is my drive home from work:

(this conversation takes place with my bluetooth headset)

Me: Call mom.

Bluetooth: Reading contact details of mom.

Me: Call mom.

Bluetooth:  Text message mom.

Me: Call mom.

Bluetooth:  Command not recognized.

Me: Call mom.

Bluetooth:  Command not available with flip closed.

Me: Call mom.

Bluetooth:  Reading contact details of…


Bluetooth: Reading contact…


Bluetooth: Reading…


Bluetooth: Calling mom.

Mom: Sorry I can’t talk right now.  Bye!

Life is horrible.
