Not your day? Here’s a song about it.

They say bad things happen in three’s. It’s the rule of life. Well. If anyone has any objections to this rule, you can study my life. I will walk you through an in depth analysis from the time I was told that the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and Tooth Fairy were societal lies to this past Friday where I decided to basically exist.

Yes. Exactly.

Yes. Exactly.

My lovely assistant Tina Fey will help me illustrate this evidence.

So, after:

2) corrupting some software


3) and successfully backing into my coworker’s parked car

Well, as I was running through the weekend with my woes (ha I’m so clever),tumblr_m7bx22vzz41rsez73_lmartwatching Beyonce videos and envisioning how awesome our friendship will be one day, (it’ll start casually but then quickly become a deep connection), YouTube decided to surprise me.

In a moment of need, you're the wind beneath my wings Keith

In a moment of need, you’re the wind beneath my wings Keith.

Keith, my new soulmate, runs down a list of truly (in the moment) upsetting events that would have the Dalai Lama saying, “I can’t even.” From knocking your taco off the table, to getting a ticket after work. This song is for the 9-5 strugglers.

So I thought I’d share this lil gem and I hope it pops up for you when it’s most needed.

A Late Resolution


Let the confessions begin, Usher style.

As New Years slips away, every day becomes a sharper reminder of my complete failure to take a hold of my New Years Resolution. Now when I say complete failure, I mean #FAIL.Never have I eaten so much pizza, donuts, and the multiple genres of fried potatoes.

Plus my consumption of wine is at record breaking heights.


It has been a straight 20 days of eating and allowing my body to melt into whatever soft surface it sags into. Let’s just say, I got curves in a Mu mu.

11 Things I Realized While Traveling Home

Famous Carpet @ PDX - Portland, Oregon

Famous Carpet @ PDX – Portland, Oregon

1. The Friend who Takes You to the Airport Most Certainly DOES NOT Know a Shortcut I don’t care if they’ve lived there their entire lives. They WILL miss an exit, that one turn or some secret dirt road. This mistake will result in a tense question/answer session regarding anything (i.e. your parents, repeated stories about that friend that you hate, dogs etc.) besides the possibility of missing your flight.
