We’ve got to hump quickly today since I’m behind/late or as my buddy would say “tardy to the party.” I’m pretty sure that’s a song by one of those fancy housewives in random city X.

Anyways, it’s time to leave my troubles behind and jump on Kathy’s vodka fueled train for Wednesday’s Confessions!

Vodka and Soda

I have one co-worker in particular that drives me bat shizz crazy. I’m like send the student to me DIRECTLY. It’s not that hard. I’m sorry I didn’t catch your last email…you send out unrelated ish that I often don’t check and FYI that’s nothing to cry about. Sigh, I hate that she makes me feel the need to walk in the other direction but DAMN! I just can’t handle your nonsense.

One of my office besties is moving on to bigger and better things (go him!) but I’m hella sad to see him go. We shared all our coffee/beer dates and I will have a void in my work life….he made my job suck less. Sadly, it will suck more without him. SAD FACE.

Read sad bastard post here & here. I’m like f’ing Bono and still haven’t found what I’m looking for…. I need to get back on top. I need to care more and be able to fake it with random co-workers. Instead I just want to punch them in their face. BAM!!! Let the relief wash over me, hop on a plane, and make drinks for the rest of my life like Tom Cruise in Cocktail.

I confess that I had cake for breakfast this morning at an office meeting. It was a lemon bundt cake and that made me miss my Grandma. I fought back the tears and thought about her little yellow cake bundt cakes with chocolate frosting and crushed walnuts. I made me sad she would never make me that cake again….stupid cake. It was delicious and that is a small consolation.

Guilty pleasure at it’s finest. I really love to read the missed connections on craigslist. Some are so sweet you can’t help believe in love and the others are so skeezy…it’s really quite unbelievable. I highly recommend this in the art of time wasting, day dreaming, and internet frolicking.

I confess I really want to be Mindy Kaling’s buddy and I think we would completely crack one another up, drink too much, and brunch it all off. I mean I’m hilarious, she’s hilarious. I would take her photos for her facebook and we could chop it up about what’s going on in the interwebbies.

Speaking of homies, thanks for coming by and kicking it on the Humpty Wednesday. I appreciate all the little comments and or even the reads. I hope I can make you beaatches smile the way many of your blogs do. That concludes this sappy message now back to the Hump!


I need a luck dragon….and to get out of this damn bell jar

Do you know you’re in the bell jar or is it only after you’re out that you know you’ve been in???

Where are all my damn Philosophy majors? Probably spending their summer some place dreamy…Damn, kids..I kid..I kid. Well at least about the kids.


Oh Reality Bites, I can’t even look to you for wisdom because I’m now a decade older than your characters. What movie should I be referring to with thirty somethings…I mean I obviously have Bridget Jones 🙂
Well at least this hot mess express woke up and made herself do a nice 3.5 mile run and treated herself to a good ole cup of joe. Work has been very slow which is good because my motivation ended right as I walked in the door. I did try and resuscitate it with another cup of coffee but that too failed. I read two articles on improving your productivity/desk station. I will post them later this week if I find them actually useful. I also saw a job that I’m going to apply for at the University. No expectations just a chance to throw my hat in the ring and possibly increase cash flow if it happens. The work would be different and maybe that’s what this bell jar bebe needs?

I need to fall back into love with the administrative side of my job or at the very least not get caught up in the inefficiency and put in a few LOOOONNNG nights. I need to commit to letting something go so that I can make that happen. Most likely it will be having a clean house, laundry, and dinner with my lovely boyfriend. If I get in at least 3 late nights this week and next, maybe I will be caught up before vacation. I just need a strategy, commit, and put in the hours. Sigh, hours that I am not paid for…BLARGH!

I’m thinking of purchasing this workout dvd despite the current “I’m in the red” financial situation.
First, I need to have a back-up when I can’t get my morning run due to an early morning meeting. Second, if I’m working out in the evening I’d like my boy to be able to enjoy the living room. There’s no tv in our bedroom so I need something that I can download to my ipad. I think I can get this for $10.00 (itunes) which is pretty reasonable and I love Jillian.

Back to the dreaded office, I’d like to have a plan of attack for work so once I return from Mexico I can put on my big girls pants and budget the hell out of the next 6 months.

I’m 33 and I’d like a kid and to retire one day so I need to break up with my retail therapy, lack of budgeting, and general non-financial savviness.


I really want a win…so I can feel like this and possibly turn this ish around. Or at least get me out of the jar.

That’s all I got for tricky Tuesday, my interwebbies. Hope yours is going well. Let me know if you have any budget blogs I should be reading, or any how to be a grown up blogs for that matter.
