Pesky People

Ever had one of those days where the people around you are simply being PESKY? I have had one of those days for sure. However, it has not really been "people" but rather one person, one individual who has really been a pain in my arse. It started off this morning when I realized this person had displaced all my belongings, the ones I keep on my desk, simply because she was annoyed. Now being the rational person I am, I took one deep breath and had a COMPLETE MELTDOWN! This has not been the first incident I have endured with this co-worker and I genuinely came into this job wanting to be friends with her because she happens to be one of the few people in my age group but no no no, apparently she finds ME to be PESKY. I have yet to figure out what I have ever done to her, besides exist, but once I do I will be sure to tell her that "Pesky people do not make friends!".

On another, less aggressive, note I was reading an article the bf sent me about a woman who sold her twin newborns in order to pay for lyposuction (horrible and odd, I know) when I came across this little gem,

I looked at it and then quickly looked around to make sure no one was walking by and dove head first into the article. These 15 people are nude models that art teachers use to direct students. For generations these models have received, "le cornet" a small tip from each student after each session. This tradition, as of late, has been disregarded and is now coming face to face with its official end. The models (the courageous people who bare their bodiesto strangers, I admire them so!) are demanding that this traditions continues to live on and that they are recognized for their contribution to the world of art. To make a point and stand out they decided to stand naked in front of part of the University in the freezing cold temps!
"We are as important as the teacher and the painter because without us they could not teach or paint," said Salvatori, one of the protesters. "Without Gabrielle, who would Renoir have been?."

What lengths would you go to in order to attain or maintain your rights?

Oh and by the way I had a fantastic weekend! We got up late Friday night and spent all day Saturday enjoying one anothers company while eating, drinking and oh yea scaling up a mountain and then "bushwhacking" our way down in snowshoes. Definitely a day to remember :)
Not great pics, but the best I could do!

Ok listen up ladies, this is what it takes to produce a lovely and just about perfect weekend.

First we add a little bit of this,
Then toss in a little bit of this,

(As in your own PERSONAL ones, although I would take the actors too)

Oh and throw in some of this too,

(kisses from the boyfriend, yay!)

Dont forget this important part,



I don't know what you all have planned for the weekend, perhaps some hustling and bustling of Christmas shopping, or defrosting the ice that has recently attacked MA but MY weekend is going to be all of the above and more. I have sooo been looking foward to this trip! I need to thank the one and only Amy for inviting my friends and I on this adventure, you are the best :)

Friday Fact:
Turtles can breathe through their butts.

Driving - Maybe us women are as bad as THEY say we are...

Oh, this happens all the time!

Honest mistake, who knew there would be a boat there????

No biggie, she simply wanted to make a statment of some sort...

5th Wheeling it and Lovin it (kinda)

So, first of all I would like to explain that I have actually been busy these past few days at work. I know, I know it is hard to believe but it just so happens that I have been furiously working from morning til night...on my brothers term paper. HA who knew that I would put so much pressure and stress on myself just to "proof read" aka REWRITE a college paper. I found myself in the middle of a huge english majors nightmare - mispellings and verb tense errors GALORE. It was a 14 page paper and I put every drip of energy I had into it and this is why I have sadly ignored my tiny little blog these past few days.

But now that I am back there are a few things that need to be acknowledged, such as my new found love for this man, Paul Potts. He was a contestant on the British version of, American Idol which is Britains Got Talent. If you watch this video, you will understand why I get the chilli bumps listening to him :)

Now onto the meaning of the title for this post... Last week I went to this great little bar in the South End with some friends ->

(that is a pic from outside the bar) and it was a really nice time. I had to be dragged out by my persistent and lovely friend Weebes and once there I was grateful for his insistence :) We munched on some tasty appetizers and waited for the rest of the clan. Soon there were 4 of us and shortly after that there were 5 of us. Two couples and then me. I didn't stay long after the 5th person got there but not because I felt uncomfortable or lonely but because that one beer was slowly starting to enter my system and my droopy, drowsy eyes were beginning to make an appearance! But as I walked home I started thinking about the situation I am in with my boyfriend. While he is away studying and being an uber dork (hehe jk sweets) I am here in Bean town being forced to succumb to that ever so dreadful label "The third, fifth, seventh wheel" BUT I have discovered I happen to actually enjoy this! This was my epiphany as I trudged home last Thursday night, and every other night I play third wheel to friends (my two neighbors in particular) I like watching other couples interact and most of all I like the feeling I get leaving these situations; it makes me miss him but it also makes me really value our time together. Being with other couples reminds me of what I have to look foward to when the bf comes home. So that was my big moment of "enlightenment" last week, did you have one?

Just for a chuckle, here is how the ever so knowledgable "Urban Dictionary" defines a third wheel, (note - is not factual and extremely crass!)

1. Third Wheel
One who deters the socialization of a couple, perhaps when being invited out of pitty or through a feeling of duty. This person may be eased into the situation by being allowed to stay in an envirnment he or she has become accustomed to (perhaps a kitchen, where the third wheel can bake cookies for the couple.) The third wheel may feel uncomfortable about watching the couple canoodle on his her her sofa, but none of this is taken into consideration.

Third Wheel
A person hanging out with two people (usually a couple) that are in a sence leaving him/her out. Called the third wheel because either: -Having any odd number of wheels on an object generally messes it up. -Third wheel on a bike makes a tricycle, something thats safe for kids be left alone with.
Well, if your bringing your girlfriend, I'll have to take my cousin with me, don't wanna be the third wheel.

Third Wheel
To be the friend that sits there while your friend gets some and you get nothin but yourself.
The other day when I was sittin in my basement with Nate and this female I had to third wheel it

PS. I would like to make a shout out to my first ever follower!! Thank you Princess Freckles for making feel part of the blogging world :)

Wishing my lovely life away...
Monday mornings stink! They really do. All morning I have been saying over and over again, "I WISH it were the weekend. I WISH I was still in bed. I WISH I was not at work right now." Blah blah blah, I WISH I wasn't WISHING my life away! I tend to laugh it off and remind myself of the hundreds of thousands of others just like me; waking up on a drizzly Monday morning and mumbling to oneself, "I WISH I could get back into bed." But then when I really think about it and indulge myself, I realize this is not how I want to live for the rest of my life and this is when I start perusing through Monster.Com.
If anyone knows of a fabulous/super/fantastic/wickedawesome job that needs to be filled, please contact me at, DESPERATELY/BORED/EMPLOYEE.COM! Thanks :)

In other news I just started a new book, called "The Other Queen". It's by the same woman who wrote "The Other Boelyn Girl" so I have high hopes! Has anyone read this before or perhaps anything else by the writer, Philippa Gregory?

PS. For anyone who is into BIG BRAND names/labels, this site, is most likely your future lova. A woman that I work with swears by this site (not knowing that I actually prefer shopping at the Gap and that I never spend more then $20, ok maybe $30 on a bag) and claims that the sales are the best thing since sliced bread. With the holidays quickly approaching maybe this will help!
