Typical Tuesday? I Think NOT! More Like...Tumultuous Tuesday!

I have had the NUTTIEST day so far. Here's why:
1. I woke up on the RIGHT side of the bed this time...I'm having a GREAT hair day, and it's cold out so I got to wear tights, BOOTS, and a sweater dress!!!
2. I passed about 4 car wrecks on my way to the office this morning...I think there's something in the air...I hope everyone was ok
3. I was pulling into the parking lot (I work on campus where I go to grad school...no I don't work at the freaking food court, I'm an editor) and I saw a young dude walking with two cops. I assumed his car had been broken into (my campus is in a super scary/ghetto part of town) and I thought nothing of it. I parked, and realized that the cops and the dude were right next to me. I was letting the end of "Fergalicious" play (another mood booster) and next thing I know, I hear yelling...the dude was trying to beat up the cops, there were some expletives yelled, and then he's down on the ground struggling to get away. I was slack-jawed...still in the car...freaking the hell out. Umm...what do I do? I didn't want to get out for fear that psycho dude would accost me, so I sat and stared, BBMed (BlackBerry Messenger...if you don't know...you have no idea...) Sarah a series of "OMG OMG OMG you won't believe what I'm seeing right now" texts, and contemplated taking a picture (normal?)...Then 4 more cops came running, I figured I was safe...and fled from the scene, I ran my little Coach boots across the parking lot as quickly as possible, while balancing my container of homemade cranberry sauce (We're having a company "Thanksgiving" today) and my HUGE work tote. 
So last night, I was exhausted, but I had to make my homemade cranberry sauce for my office party. My cranberry sauce is unbelievable, I must say. If you want the recipe, email me and I'll give it! It's really pretty healthy (as far as cranberry sauce goes) and it's just amazing. So here's how it went down...(I was in a robe while cooking...obvi) 

this is my homemade cran sauce! So delish..this is an actual pic! I love how pretty it looks!
I also was accompanied by my sous chef...aka a bottle of Merlot, and below you will see a picture of my faithful apprentice.

Another tidbit: Dry Shampoo is discriminatory. I read an article in Glamour this week about how you should only shampoo your hair 2x a week. I wash my hair AT LEAST every other day, and shower every day, so I invested in some dry shampoo. Luckily, I don't have greasy hair, but last night I decided to give it a try since my hair was looking a little flat, and I didn't feel like showering again and having to blow dry. I read the directions, sprayed the stuff into the roots, worked it in, waited, and brushed it out. VOILA!!! grey hair....Are you serious with that sh*t??? This would only work for a blonde!!!!!! So I looked like I had aged say..oh...50 years, but my hair looked nice, minus the GREY. So, I'm going to try it again because maybe I put too much in, but if not, then I'll have to give it to a blonde person. (I don't necessarily think blondes have more fun, but they might have more advantage in the dry shampoo area)
In other news, I'm getting pretty flippin' excited for Turkey Day and the premiere of NEW MOON!!!
