THANKS. a lot.

October 11, 2011 · 24 comments

1. Thank you, Gods of SNL, for gifting me with this new masterpiece. And thank you, Kristen Wiig, once again, for your comedic genius.

It only took me three years to figure out I should TiVo SNL, and I’ve been overly excited to watch it for the past few weeks.

2. Thank you, best coworker in the world Brian, for gifting me with these gallons of crystal light. My tapering body will be happy and hydrated thanks to you.

[By the way, my little field hockey munchkin was wrong. The margarita flavor tastes just fine without the tequila.]

3. Thank you, PowerBar, for making these. I love you for it.

The peanut butter chocolate and brownie flavors taste like year-old brownies. The oatmeal raisin bites of heaven? Delightful.

4. Thank you, Fox, for the New Girl. That short clip barely breaks through the surface, but it’s a winner. As is Up All Night. Between these newbies and my old favorites (Gossip Girl, Glee, and America’s Next Top Model), I should just quit life and sit in bed and watch TV all day. Screw marathon training. And if don’t you comment on my lack of mature television content. I do watch the news at the gym and in the mornings, ya know. When nothing else is on.

5. Thank you, Lisa-Marie, for coming up with my new favorite bLyss Designs product. I slaved away over this baby over the weekend so she can sport it at Wine Fest this weekend.

I was too lazy to take a nice picture of this at 11 p.m. last night.

6. Thanks for NOTHING, Bank of America, for announcing I will soon have to pay $5 per month to use my debit card.

Sayanora, debit world. I’m putting my big girl pants on and going balls to the wall credit from now on.

7. Thank you, Google images, for showing this picture when my full name is Googled. I’m sure all my new friends and future employers are very impressed.

I want to those Crystal Light thangs really bad. I can’t find em in my supermarket.

That picture of you is priceless. I would hire you for being ballsy enough to post that of yourself!

I hope Chase doesn’t jump on the debit change bandwagon or we will have to break up. I’ll keep my $5, thank you very much!

Yesterday I got stuck in front of the news TV at the gym. I felt so informed afterwards! But I immediately had to go home and watch Gossip Girl and Sing Off… You know… for balance.

Brian didn’t also get you the mojito Crystal Light? RUDE Brian. Just RUDE. πŸ˜‰

I’ve been thinking the SAME thing with Bank of America. Plus, you can use a credit card that gives you points toward something and that might work out in the long run. But I keep wondering – What if I need to use the ATM? I mean, I don’t normally carry cash but every now and then I do. Also, I wonder if they are charging people that have direct deposit. UGH. So frustrating!

My husband and I have been DVR’ing SNL for the last few years, it’s the only way we can watch it. Bonus: you can skip right through the ones that just..well suck.
And I LOVE the New Girl!! I love Zooey Dechanel, so there wasn’t much of a chance that I wouldn’t like it, but still. Love.

SNL is also on the Instant Queue – they put up the new episodes a week after they air!

And um New Girl and Up All Night are my FAVORITE new shows. So in addition to those, Modern Family, Glee (Mr Schu PLEASE STOP SINGING), Greys (yes I still watch it – judge away) and Gossip Girl… I have a pretty full evening schedule.

Additionally I have found that credit card purchases + Power Rewards Credit Card = CASH BACK rewards πŸ™‚ Win-win for everyone. HOLLA

It’s safe to say we could be TV-watching-BFFs. I’m a bit obsessed with The New Girl, Glee, Gossip Girl, Up All Night… etc. Not sure if we should be proud or embarrassed of this… but I’m leaning towards proud. πŸ˜‰

Ahahahaha that last picture!!! I wonder what comes up when I Google my name. Probably nothing I want to see. I’m on board with Up All Night, but I’ve only watched the first episode of The New Girl and haven’t made a decision about whether it’s worthy of my time yet.
