7 Quick Takes

24 August 2012

Joining Jen and the masses for some quickies today.

1. We sold a car on Craigslist. Should that be an exclamatory statement? We sold a car on Craigslist! I don't know. Anyway, I feel very accomplished and American. I need some new feelings.

2. On the way home from meeting the new owners to give them the car and then to test drive a minivan (holler) our lone little VW had a little trub. So now we are a temporarily no-car family while our carriage guzzles 561 heads of lettuce at the somewhat shady shop. Simon navigated the Saint Louis bus system at an ungodly hour this morning to get to work and shall be sainted upon his arrival home tonight.

3. The super-stylish-and-hip-and-all-things-I am-never college compadre, Ann, is coming to visit this weekend (holler all over again). But because we are temporarily 100% carless she has to take a cab to our house from the 'port and I already feel like the worst hostess in the history of hospitality. Hopefully I can make up for it with copious Moscato and White Macadamia Creamer (not together -- unless she begs).

4. I just checked the weather like the coolia that I am on most mornings and it is forecasted to be 97 hotties today. What the bleep? Gross. I'm going to be forced to go visit my favorite ongoing internet love affair: Pinterest + Pumpkins = eternal love and undying devotion at some point today.

5. Did you see my that my favorite comedian dropped another post? Prepare thyself for hilarity. Love her. She's going to get some crazy writing gig somewhere soon. Just wait.

6. And um ... did you see that Emily may have cheated on Jef? I'll never forgive her if it's true. Ever.

7. Cari is getting crazy on us and changing all the Snapshots rules this month. Go tell her you're confused. But really - I better see you there.

8. I know this photo is a repeat ... booooooooooring but only a little bit sorry.
I really need to stage an intervention with Julia and her Nicotine. Soon.

8.5. Thank you again for all of your insanely kind comments and emails and everything. I promise this won't turn into BabyCenter: The Preg Edish. Maybe (baby).


Go see Jen for all the better takes. Bye.

  2. Oh dont you worry, she did NOT cheat! I follow Jef Holm on instagram (hurry, and do so yourself) and he was making fun of the whole thing. They have both posted photos together this week, so we're good. Whew!

  5. Wahoo on selling the car!!!! I sold some smaller junk this week on Craig's and felt like a big deal :) Not that you asked for advice, but after Andrew we got the Kia Rondo (crossover type car). Seats 7 (I olan to get my $ worth there) and under $20k brand new ;) It saves gas too. Anyway, we've been happy with it.

    Second best line I read in a quick takes today. Modest Mama won gold with her description of her new house siding.

    Did you see the video of the dude harrassing the Chick-fil-A worker? We're in love with his line, "I feel very purposeful today". Maybe if he's done feeling "purposeful", you borrow it from him until you find better feelings.

  7. We are trying to sell a car on Craig's list, so I admire your accomplishment! Not that you asked for car advice, but we bought a Land Rover LR3. Not as expensive used as you might think... especially in comparison to other vehicles with three real rows. Now they are called the LR4, BTW. Anyway, can't wait to hear what you end up with! :-)

  8. Cracking me up today! Hope y'all have a fun weekend! And... WHAT?!? Emily cheated on Jef?!? I clearly need to catch up on my current events!

  9. 97 is a disgusting amount of hotties. What does a person even DO with that many? Not much, I say. Not much.

    p.s. Mini-to-the-van! Represent!

  10. Tell Ann hi for me! We went to school together when we were younger. Haven't talked to her in forever, but hope she is doing well. : )

  11. I am SO excited you are going to join the minivan world, prepare for total pride and love; I should probably do commercials for that bad boy considering I've convinced myself that it's the coolest vehicle to own in the entire world.

    (I'm serious about that, which I always seem to have to clarify...I guess some people think I'm joking...especially my customers when I tell them how pumped they should be to arrive to lunch in my sweet ride).

  12. Just to make you feel better - my niece carried a bottle around with her FOREVER. Like until she was 5 or 6. My sister could NOT break her. Eventually, the last couple of years, she could only have it in her room, at bedtime, with water. But seriously. You have a few years to go. Hah!

  14. 1. Thank you so much for linking to my blog AGAIN. You are the BEST. Too many caps? I can't stop.
    2. Emily did not cheat on Jef(f). They have released a bunch of statements saying it's not true and Jef(f)'s brother that said it WAS true is like that creepy dude that shows up to reunions but no one talks to because of that one Christmas when he threw up in the stockings. I'm literally too attached to this couple. It is not healthy.
    3. CONGRATULATIONS ON ANOTHER BABYYYYYY WOOOOOO.
    4. Remember when you asked if you were getting creepy on my blog? Am I getting creepy on yours?
    Have a fun weekend!
    Jones
