"It's 5 o'clock somewhere" isn't working for me today.....

I need to preface this post with a few things. First, I realize some of you live in arctic weather, and you might hate me for this post. But I've never lived in the North/Arctic so you can't hate me because I don't know any better. So, sorry for being all tropical up in yo grill.  Second, I'm all grumplestiltskin because school starts again next week, and May 14th (the day I graduate) is not very soon yet. Also, I'm annoyed at this season of the Bachelor. Ugh.  I'm also annoyed at all the New Year's "resolutionists" at the gym because they're taking up too much space and they try and get all competitive with me while I'm minding my own biz, jamming out to my tunez (sorry guys....I'll post about this later so you can understand my frustation).

So, here we go. I love fall and fall weather. I love the clothes, everything about it. The Holiday drinks at Starbie's, and the holiday excitement. Then the holidays come and go, and I'm stuck in limbo. It's too cold out to lay by the pool, and there are no fun holiday activities. Also, outdoor running is still slightly uncomfortable. So, I'm anxious/antsy for it to get warmer so I can lay by the pool. Because the saying "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" only sounds delicious when you associate it with a beach/warm place. Am I right?? Basically what I'm trying to say is I'm getting sick of happy hour in a coat, freezing my ass off. I want to drink cold bevs by the pool. Oh, and I'm so pale that I'm afraid people are going to start calling me "Casper"....blech. I'm not one of those people who "embraces my paleness"...wish I could... Baby steps...baby steps..

So, in short, 
1. It needs to be pool weather...which means margaritas by the pool weather...which means AWESOME
2. I need a tan
3. May 14th needs to get here like....NOW

Musique Du Jour:

The artist "Ratatat"....they're pretty friggin' sweet. 


  1. Do what I'm doing . . . head to Mexico for a week. Wanna come?!

  2. wait - time the eff out! you are seriously the color of coffee beans. YOU, of all people, are NOT pale! not even freaking close!

  3. Sigh. I've been ready for a drink since noon...

  4. I am so jealous of your May 14th graduation date I could cut you.

  5. Agreed, there is a reason we live in the South. I am queen of making margaritas, and kills me that it's much too cold to be making said beverages. I love the clothes, but ready for some fun in the sun as well.

  6. I was moaning about my lack of a tan today - in Scotland, we don't get the most sun, but I had two foreign holidays last year and I finally bid a proper goodbye to my tan today.

    Then I noticed a girl in my office who was the most disgusting shade of orange I have ever seen - I think it was a mixture of fake tan and sunbeds - and I suddenly felt soooo much better about myself.

    Isn't it AMAZING the things that can cheer one up?

  7. Don't be mad but I was at the beach today...

    It's officially cocktail time. Woop.

  8. Yes you don't know how good you have it. The heat is on all day here. My skin is so dry I look like a giant ash. Then the cold---so nice liking pale skin isn't so bad.

  9. Get a mystic tan, start a fire in your fireplace and drink a 'rita while sitting near it!

    I agree... This weather sucks ass, but it will be gone soon enough!

  10. may 14th will be here in no time and then it will be 5:oo EVERYWHERE! how do you like them apples?!

  11. the guy at the gym desk told me I only have 2 more weeks of "resolutionsists"

    I agree with Houston Girly, mystic tans work wonders.

    Also we gave you a shout out today on the Batcave!

  12. I am also quite the Casper. And I could write a novel about the New Years Resolutioners at the gym right now, I want to punch them all in their guts.

    AND HELLS YEAH Ratatat!

  13. I personally couldn't agree with you more about 1 and 2. I'm not in school, so May 14th has no effect on me... besides the fact that I will have just turned 27 on May 5th. Which is practically 30. UGH.


Leave Some Love...
