Easy

25 Jul

Of course, it sucks to wake up early and workout and still not like what you see in the mirror, which is very commonly what happens. So it might be easiest in the long run to work on not hating yourself when you look in the mirror in the first place.

The Power of Makeup

“The power of makeup”: Making average, middle-aged women look like tarted-up hookers since the dawn of human history.

I don’t even…

Let me fix that for you:

Trust doesn’t come with a refill. Once it’s gone, you probably won’t get it back. If you do, it will never be the same. That’s a fact!

No, wait. It still sounds like crap. Improving the punctuation and sentence structure can only go so far to cover up crappy contrivances.

The hats are good, but I think their shirts are going to get them shot.

Terrific Tuesday!

So I took yesterday off. But I felt a little guilty. So today, you get 4 posts! Wee!

From fans of gaming and pinning everywhere: STFU. Enjoy having your spouse/significant other draw a similarity between your hobbies and stop berating theirs.

Things I was doing instead of blogging: New York City

23 Jul

In December 2011, Jeremy and I took a long vacation to New York City. This was after my contract with Microsoft had closed and I was on a mandatory 100 day break before I could start a new MS contract. This left me with oodles of time, and Jeremy had some use-it-or-lose-it vacation to burn. As he had never been to New York before, I was very excited to take this trip with him.

We traveled by train. It took 2 nights to go from Seattle to Chicago, we spent one night in Chicago (to give up some buffer in case trains were delayed – something we learned is useful from our last cross-country train experience) and then one more overnight ride to New York City.

Then we spent 9 nights in the city, in a small hotel right next to Rockefeller Center. It was really lovely as NYC around Christmastime can be.

We took in three shows: The Book of Mormon, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (with Daniel Radcliffe), and Hugh Jackman’s one man show.

Aside from both Jeremy and I contracting colds during the trip, we had a great time and will very likely make the trek to NYC on a semi-regular basis (i.e. when we can and don’t have somewhere else on a higher priority to visit).

Enjoy some of my favorite pictures from the trip:

Taking the day off. Busy weekend and tired body & brain.
