Happy Snark Day. Er, I Mean Thursday.

I don't know whether I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning or if somebody peed in my Wheaties. Regardless, I woke up full of snark today and this here is all that I got. 

1. Husband, after telling me repeatedly for weeks that you've been researching hotels and hot spots on St. Kitts and Nevis for our upcoming vacation, do not suddenly turn to me while laying in bed last night and ask if I'd rather go to Disney. Despite the fact that we now have a child, we will not be taking a trip to Disney until he is old enough to ask to go. And recite the 50 states. In alphabetical order. Maybe even with state capitals

2. I love me some Polyvore. Although I have no interest in using it, I especially love when this blogger posts her ingenious ensembles. Not only does she cover clothes, but she completes the head to toe look with accessories, makeup and nail polish. Most importantly? It's all affordable. If you're going to use Polyvore and spark my interest with your amazing creations, do not, I repeat, do not, fill your design board with not a single item costing less than $200. Get over it. Money doesn't grow on trees and I don't have $299 to spend on that gorgeous tunic to wear to Ocean City Maryland with my 10 month old slobbery son. 

3. If you're reading this and you have a blog and you have enabled Word Verification, stop reading immediately, check your settings and turn it off. Chances are, I love your blog and have tried to comment over a dozen times but have given up when confronted with having to type words like "jigynrt" and "hbgrrequlvent" over and over and over again. 

4. I really want feather extensions. I can't decide if this makes me crazy or awesome. I have an upcoming hair appointment at a salon that uses them but do feather extenstions really go with JCrew? I feel like I could be a walking contradiction. 

5. Oh and seriously? If someone, somewhere, doesn't hurry up and figure out a way to decimate the Stinkbug population that is overtaking the Eastern Seaboard, I'm going to lose my shit. After counting 15 of them huddled around the french doors in our basement, I vowed never to walk down there again. Which really sucks because our laundry room is down there. Oh well

On a brighter note? So You Think You Can Dance starts up again tonight. You'd better watch. 

Happy Snark Day, Loyals! Are you feeling snarky today? Go ahead, let it all out...

  2. I need to make sure I don't have word verification on...

    Not much snark from me today...which is odd becuase I am one snarky bitch.

    And, don't hate on WDW. C and K could have a WDW date becuase we are here at least 3 times a year. Food and wine festival at Epcot is freaking amazing. Dint hate until you've tried it!

  3. It starts tonight?!?!?! Yayyyy!!! I freaking love that show!! And I am a huge fan of Glamorous Newlywed and her Polyvore also! And I love that she always puts together AFFORDABLE stuff. She's so awesome. And now I know who asked her to do the St Kitt's outfit post :)

  4. I think that 'tude is the deciding factor in the feathers vs. JCrew debate...and my feeling is that you could deff pull it off.

    But HOW to do you wash your hair? Like normal? Obvi, I live in the midwest :)

  5. While we're on the subject of bloggers....please don't leave a comment on my blog that requires a response only for me to try and reply and see the dreaded "no-reply" address. Seriously. Update your shiz people or you will just have to lie awake at night wondering why I never answered your question.

    Whew. That felt good.

    Oh. And I don't know about stinkbugs, but we've got ants in the kitchen. It's gross. I'm refusing to cook.

  6. I am really wanting to get a few feather extensions as well, but I'm not sure they'll go with my sweat pants/t-shirt wardrobe attire as a WAHM. Sigh. Keep me posted on what you decide, I'm dying to see them on someone I 'know' and not just some random person.

  7. You crack me up and now you make me want to go check my settings because I would love sweet comments from you... LOL I have no clue if mine is enabled or not??? GASP!!! Neways... I am snarking against the 40/50 somethings that work in this office that instead of coming to work they care more about the size of my wedding ring or how much my purse cost, etc. WTF. I am snarking to the fact that we just moved into our new home less than two weeks ago, went a week without a washer and dryer, still have to clean up our old digs, and have all our shiz together by Saturday for a big birthday bash we are throwing for my step daughter and two of her cousins ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ... one more thing... I am snarking to the next of spiders that have decided to invade the girls bathroom in our basement (it's finished)... think those bastards are coming in through our door to the garage! eeeek... and my laundry room is down there, too ;) OH HAPPY THURSDAY!

  9. Just so you know, I had to memorize all 50 states and the capitals in the USA. and I'm Canadian.

    It was god-awful

  10. ugh, the word verifications have been getting to me too! Seriously, I don't have that set {I did just double check..ha!} and I have only had spam like maybe twice ever. It's not at all necessary, people. Get over yourselves.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hahaha number 1, if my husband (if I had one) did that to me I would have punched him. And yes word verification is evil.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The stinkbugs around here are insane, aren't they? They remind me of tiny dung beetles, for some reason, which just grosses me out further. UGH.

    ReplyDelete
  13. These posts always make my day. Sometimes you just gotta vent. :)

  14. I am having the same day as well! My computer crashed last night, so I am trying to use my old computer that is slower than a snail and about to drive me crazy. Not to mention the storms woke up the boy during naptime...I couldn't agree more with the word verification...half the time I am already off the screen so my comment doesn't get posted! Can happy hour start now? :)

  15. This totally made me laugh. And I totally checked the word verification thing...I totally had it on and didn't know it! Guess that was sort of a PSA for all those people who had no idea about those settings. ;)

  16. You better stop talking about your St Kitts vacation or else I'll kill you. UNLESS of course the St Kitts you speak of is my city (Fun fact: my city is NOT called St Kitts but that is its nickname that locals use). So, if you're coming to MY St Kitts, then go for it. Otherwise, shut your mouth. I'm jealous.

  17. Ok, so, I fully support the whole "child must be able to recite the states, in alphabetical order, with capitols"--I think you should even make him cut them out and puzzle piece them together (a la Ross on that one Thanksgiving episode of Friends).

    And, feather extension makes you AWESOME.

  18. walking contradictions are the best!! Get some feathers!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Stink bugs are everywhere out here! It is nuts. Heres hoping they go away sooner rather than later.

  20. I'm going to snark annoying facebook users today. Everyone knows what I'm saying...

    ReplyDelete
  21. You crack me up. I love when us gals tell it like it is. I have been really wanting the feathers too but don't know if it's too "young." I also love So You Think You Can Dance and will be tuning in!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love this! P.S. I am like blind, and I think the word verification thing that Google uses is getting more and more ridiculous! I have considered disabling mine, and I think I will! :)

  23. JB leaves for Vegas tonight and told me I can't watch SYTYCD without him! That means I have to wait til Monday. Boooo!

    ReplyDelete
  24. THOSE DAMN STINKBUGS! Are they not the STUPIDEST things God ever created?!? They look like dinosaurs. We just moved from western PA (where we had a ton) to eastern OH (where are zero) and those little bastards stowed away in some of our moving boxes.. Grrrr...

    I make sure to always flush them down the toilet bc they will NEVER have the last laugh in this house.

    xo,

  25. I want feather extensions something fierce. I don't care if it's not "mommish" or whatever. Bring me feathers stat.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ahh, word verification is so annoying. There have been so many times when I typed a comment, even if it was a short, "Aww, cute pictures!" and when the page reloaded, and I had to type that in, I just hit the x instead. Annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Word verification = a blOggers worst nightmare! Go away!!!! And if you do feather extensions please post it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Do the feathers! I want to see pictures! I'm thinking about it too, but not sure if that makes me cool or a 30 something trying to be cool.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh my googly eyes, I've never heard of Polyvore before. And I thank you for mentioning it in your blog, because it's hella cool. And I'm not assuming someone as busy as you has read my blog, but consider word verification disabled. Didn't know that I could do that! Anyway, I love when I get 15 mins of Baby Nap Time so that I can check out what's new on your blog :)
