Five on Friday
Happy Friday! I'm trying my best to get back into the swing of blogging, but, mercy, is it hard! Busy times, friends, busy times. Anyway, I love Five on Friday posts because they're fun, don't take much thought or time, and can be a stream of consciousness kind of thing. And let's be honest: in a world that is so scary lately, and so full of senseless tragedies, it's nice to write and think about things that aren't serious at all--hence this post.
1| I need a new blog name. This one doesn't fit anymore. Problem is, I'm not creative and coming up with a new name takes a kind of mental energy I'm just not sure I have right now. Also, I didn't even come up with this blog name--my person Kesha did, after I said, "Hey, I need a blog name and you know I'm not good at stuff like that."
2| The "my person" refers to Grey's Anatomy, and if you don't know what I'm talking about, you should immediately go to Netflix and right that wrong because you are missing out. I suggest you go slowly on your binge watching and really enjoy the first several seasons, because then Shonda Rimes gets crazy and likes to kill off characters that you've grown to know and love and you're left in an emotional and angry state because, Can't she let anyone be happy?! But I digress. Kesha is my person, and she knows that but if she ever forgets, I gave her a hand stamped metal keychain years ago that says it. (Thank you, Etsy.)
3| While we're talking about Netflix, please watch Grey's using your own password, not your friend's. And don't give your password to another friend so they, too, can be sucked into the emotional drama. These are federal crimes now, people, because there is not enough trouble in the world to worry about.
4| Let's discuss Ghostbusters. Now, I loved Ghostbusters as a kid. LOVED IT. I had all the toys. The year Santa brought the proton pack with the trap is easily one of the best Christmases I remember. This new movie though? I'm not sure.
5| It's July, and school supplies are filling the aisles at Target and Walmart. I can't even. In August, these same supplies will make my heart flutter with happiness and excitement. In July though? No. Just no.
