Friday Five

1. Work is kicking my ass. And stressing me out.

2. The Thesis is kicking my ass. And stressing me out.

3. I will be trying to read/write part of Chapter 3 of The Thesis in the car this weekend. We are going to Nebraska for a A.'s friend's wedding and to see my super-adorable nephew, M. I can't wait to scoop him up and squish him. CANNOT WAIT. 

4. It is a good thing I don't get the slightest bit car sick.

5. We will be camping somewhere in Nebraska tonight, in an effort to make this trip a tad more friendly to our rather empty pocketbooks (Yay for new computers, car maintenance, and homeowner insurance premiums!). I am going to attempt to get ready for a wedding at a campsite that boasts showers. I may have to straighten and style my hair in a gas station bathroom. 

I am trying to decide if I keep an admirable eye on my budget, am a champ for getting ready in whatever way necessary for a wedding, or if I am white trash. 


Happy Friday to you!


  1. Just as long as you're not barefoot in said gas station bathroom. Keepin' it classy! ;-)

  2. I so wish I could read/write in the car. But you know how that would go! :)

    I hope the campsite has a nice mirror. I always find that lacking, even if the showers are OK. Good luck!

  3. I LOVE the image of you getting ready for a wedding at a campsite. Love.

    Also, I'm with shauna- I could not attempt to read anything longer than a road sign in the car or there would be horking. Good thing for you (and the thesis) that you do not share this affliction.

  4. You have way too many teeth left to be up for a white trash nomination --not to mention a tad bit too much education too :)
    Have a great weekend!

  5. I agree. FANCY is the word. Have fun!

  6. FANCY. Also, able to embrace the dualities of life.

  7. I'm jealous that you can read in the car. Even thinking about it makes my head hurt.

    I completely and utterly despise the phrase "white trash." Trash is something to be thrown away. People are not meant to be thrown away.

Sorry for the word verification. Spambots have found this little blog!
