Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

It's been kind of a hard week here in Strangerville. Didn't someone promise once that after you turn 30 everything goes exactly how you plan for the rest of your life? I swear I read that once in the Bible. Or a fortune cookie or something. Or on the side of a bus.

Wherever it was, IT WAS A LIE!

I hope I didn't hear it in an episode of Glee. I don't want to think that Glee can give false information.

And now, your Pictures and Distractions:
Mr. Matt sketching at Art Night.

Hannah cooking at Art Night.

Matt painting at Art Night.

A new maximum speed for me on the bike the other day. I don't know whether the screaming made me go faster or slower.

On my run today, just minutes from my office.

With Hannah at Lagoon.

Also, WHY DID I SWEAT THIS MUCH THE OTHER DAY?! It wasn't even hot! Oh, and NSFW!!! GROSS!!!

Stranger Picture of the Week

The Queen of Colors's's's's's's's newest disguise. Thanks, Becky.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

Daily affirmations. I need this child to come visit me. Thanks, Stephanie.

Synchronized cat dancing. Everyone please immediately email this link to everyone in your office. Thanks, Veronica.

Glad to hear Cathie isn't the only mother to request something like this. Thanks, Esther.


Cat ice-cube trays. Thanks, Brooke.

Note: I will automatically say yes to anyone who says this to me. Thanks, Ashley.

This site mocks buzzfeed. And it might be my new favorite thing on the Internets. Thanks, Scott.

Girl who fakes her period. (Warning--awkward period and anatomy jokes). Thanks, Kyle.

  1. Love the fake period video. That and the dancing kittens. That white one was not having any part of that after a while. He knew what was going on.

    Thanks for the laughs.

    And Eli, you let Matt put his stinky feet on the furniture? Ew.

  2. Clickhole reminds me of The Onion. Awesomeness! And huzzah that I got first place in the submitted distractions category today. :)

  3. Is that your apartment? You have really nice style if so.

  4. ELI! I have the same sweating problem lately! I have no idea why it is happening or how to stop it. If you hear any tips, PLEASE share. It's so embarrassing in the office.

  5. That chicken will eat your soul and you'll be reborn as it's evil little minion inside a tiny black eggshell. Run away!

  6. Hannah?! We are still grieving Rebecca and Jolyn!!! Seriously Eli, lawless house or not, you should give us a few days to adjust to our hopes and dreams getting crushed here. I do not know how many more Living in Sin girls our emotions can handle here. Have Bob and Cathie had "The Talk" with you yet?

  7. Oh goodness the period video made me snort! And seriously, the white kitten was so not interested in being a part of the crowd! Or it has attention issues. Anywho, for the sweating thing-try one of the anti-per spirants that are clinical strength. It's what I use in Singapore and my armpits are the only thing that aren't sweaty. Too bad I can't apply a tub of it everyday. And your hair looks awesome!

  8. I love your hair. Will you marry me?

  9. My mother asked for an urn with her smiling face on it so she can be at her party...
