So today I’m combining the Top 8 List with Amanda’s Thinking Out Loud Thursday for a hybrid post of sorts.


Top 8 Things I’m Thinking About Today

8. I think one of my family’s dogs is part rabbit.

7. I think once you reach your 30s, you shouldn’t have to specify your exact age anymore. Instead of being like “oh I’m 31” or “oh I’m 37” I think we should all start saying “oh, I’m thirties.” That is, until we hit 40 and then we say “I’m forties” and so on and so forth. Not only am I finding it harder to remember my actual age when asked on the spot, but being so specific reminds me of kids explaining that they’re “four-and-three-quarters.”

6. Seriously, I think he has us all fooled. Let’s examine the evidence:

5. What if someone from Cambridge, MA (aka the Portland, OR of New England) took on unwitting athletes to tutor in the ways of the hipster? What kind of shenanigans would transpire? Something like this I imagine:

Mr Rachem Zoe feels that naming a team after a country is unorginal, and is petitioning to rename Team Brazil the Lana Del Racifes.

The Cambridgian feels that naming a team after a country is unoriginal, and is petitioning to rename Team Brazil the Lana Del Racifes.


4. I wonder how long it’ll take for my iphone 4s to be considered “vintage” and therefore cool again.

3. The older I get, the more confident I am that every situation in life can be related back to a Seinfeld episode.

2. I’m thinking I’m really lucky to be on this gorgeous beach right now.

Haha kidding. I don’t do cool things. #Facay

1. I didn’t bring enough food with me to work today, and will express my feelings on the circumstances in rhyme:

Hot lava is red
Cool lava is black
What I wouldn’t give right now
For just one more snack


Thanks for hosting, Amanda!

Have you ever run out of snacks too early in the day? On a scale of 1 to tense how much do you hate that?

Are you taking any real vacations this summer? (Let me live vicariously through you)

Are you a Seinfeld fan?

  1. SEINFELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are such a Newman! Just kidding, you’re the coffee table book fan with the red hair.

    The pooch is definitely part bunny. People eat bunnies…..just saying. Let’s not talk about running out of snacks early….or eating lunch at 10.

    PS in regards to the previous comment- October!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Baahhhhaaaaa!!!! Where to begin? Not enough snacks is a 10. I need food constantly. I love your #facay! Is that a thing? I’m almost in my forties so I have no idea what’s cool on social media anymore. And, YES, that is most certainly a bunny.

  3. Don’t even want to think about the dog’s family tree looks like! And don’t want to even think about what you said to your co-workers while you were hungry! Great post.

  5. Haha – Oh you are too funny! Your family dog … it a dog? …is it a bunny? …or a bog maybe? …or a dunny? GAH! You make me think….and I try not to do that (at least while I am at work)!!!
    I lurve Seinfeld – that dryer post is just to ironic – just last night I watched the episode where they put Cement in the laundry owner’s washer – remember that one?

  6. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve legit had to stop and think when someone asks me how old I am — I don’t feel anywhere near 29, or look it either. I wonder if I could get away with telling people I’m 21 :mrgreen:

    And Seinfeld is the love of my life. I have all the seasons on DVD and probably watched them at least 4 times. Might be time to make that 5…

  7. Haha love the facay picture. Whenever I’m bored I plan fake vacations online. My fantasy self is quite the world traveler.

    Lately I’ve been constantly running out of snacks, which leaves me running in the door after work starving!

  9. You totally faked me out with that beach picture. Ha! BUT, boy would I love to be on a beach right about now instead of sitting at my desk at work!

    And yes, I’ve definitely ran out of snacks at work. It’s the worst, especially when 3:00 rolls around and you’re starving and have nothing left and have to waiting until you get home. No fun!

  10. I love your facay – tricked me with that first picture!!!
    I’m cool with saying I’m 44 – it helps that I do exercise reps to my age every day- hard to forget that number!!!

  11. Oh, how I have missed your blog and your top-8 lists. The facay is my new favorite thing.

  12. OMG, the fingers in front of the screen for your fakecation was too funny. LOL

  13. I almost choked to death on my diet coke with your facay pictures. Bwahahahaha. OMG…so funny! I want to try that! I wonder if I can make finger cleavage?

    I am TOTES with you on #3. I probably relate something in my life to a Seinfeld episode every day. I’m certain my husband and friends find this characteristic endearing and not at all annoying. 😀 –Lisa
