Lazy Sunday: September 23rd

Nothing about this week has been normal. Most days, I feel like Peter Pan; doing everything I can to avoid the messy, emotionally draining issues that come with adulthood. But every once in a while, I’m pulled back down to reality by my pesky shadow to face all the things I like to pass over in favor of matinee movies and popcorn for lunch or hours of practicing our family dance and a cappella routine. A chronically ill kid, parents who are out of work, a bully issue, and OH YEAH, my toilet keeps making this running noise and won’t stop no matter how hard I kick it or jiggle the fucking handle OMG WITH THE RUNNING.

So yeah, I deal with that crap because that’s what being an adult is, and I do really want to deal with it, but it totally stresses me out that I suck at it, because while I thrive on being mediocre at random things, sucking at important things drives me crazy.

So, I’ve been trying hard to fill my day with, like, fun hobbies.

I read:

About Last Night, Ruthie Knox: Like, the first chapter sucked and I hated it, but then I ended up totally liking it. It’s got a touch of smut, but, like, they have British accents, and it’s bloody lovely.

I Suck At Girls, Justin Halpern: This is the guy who wrote Shit My Dad Says. While the twitter account was funny, I never read the book, and honesty felt meh about reading this one. Except I’m so glad I did because it was fantastic. Totally hilarious.

The Siren: Tiffany Reisz: Again, smut, but totally well written and really entertaining. It kept me on my toes the whole time, I didn’t know who I wanted to root for, which was a nice change of pace. I devoured it in 24 hours.

I watched movies at 4am:

Beastly: Alright so, in order for your eyes to not roll all the way back into their heads, you have to suspend reality a bit. For example, pretend it’s totally normal LisaGay Hamilton has a Jamaican accent, Neil Patrick Harris is blind and that Mary-Kate Olsen is a brilliant actress. Once you get past that, you’ll see a guy named Alex Pettyfer who I’ve now dubbed my new pick for Christian Grey.

Our Idiot Brother: This movie had Paul Rudd in it. That’s basically all I have to say about that.

Katy Perry: Part of Me: Ok I rented this during a bout of insomnia (Andy was less than thrilled by this purchase), and here’s the thing. I don’t know what happened to me while watching it, but maybe if everyone on in the world would be forced to watch this, I don’t know, war would stop and people would have enough food to eat.

I’ve also been up to all this:

Here’s some cool shit I saw online:


I received such a huge response from the Bullied post, and I wanted to share one of them with you. This video is by Megan Landry, she wrote this song and made this video herself. It’s super powerful, and she’s amazing in every sense of the word.

This is my FAVORITE website in the whole entire world.

If you are looking for a book to read, check out this thread, it’s awesome.

In general WTF news.

I feel like my stunt double would have been Chris Farley with a red wig and fake boobs. God I loved him.

To keep up with everything I love, I suggest joining me on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and follow me throughout the day on Instagram @BrittanyHerself!

    I’m so glad that people mentioned Christopher Moore in your book list. He is one of my favorite authors. His last two books, Sacre Bleu (about artist in Paris) and Fool ( a remake of Shakespeare) are a little heavier, but still wonderful. The earlier books are great, too. Try to get your hands on The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, The Island of the Sequined Love Nun, The Stupidest Angel, The Gospel According to Biff; Jesus’s Childhood Friend, or any of his works, really. Very funny, and even though they are not a series, characters from other books pop in sometimes. You can also find Christopher Moore on Facebook. Love him!!!

    Olivia Cunning, author of Backstage Pass, Rock Hard, etc, has some new novellas about rock bands again. They are Try Me and Tempt Me. They focus on different characters in the same band. I know you liked the other books and you should be able to read both in one day. Smut is fun!

    I’m with you on My Idiot Brother. It had a GREAT cast and good (yet trite) premise. But it was kind of a downer and Ieven watched it during a MONTH long KID-FREE (there are 6) vacation in HAWAII. It should have been really hard to bum me out, alas . . .

    My toilet was constantly running too. I would lift up the arm thingy and it would stop, however this makes you have to open the back of the toilet every single time you flush. If you pay for water like me, you get used to it. However my husband was less than thrilled. He jiggled and tightened everything inside the tank and it magically stopped. Sorry my tips were not more technical. Andy builds robots so he can figure it out!

    BTW if I lived in your area I would kidnap you for the day and treat you to a spa day and matinee with popcorn. Sounds like heaven to me.

    Also when I say kidnap I do not mean in a weird stalkerish ransom kind of way.

    I also rented the Katy Perry movie and LOVED IT. When she is crying in that chair and before the concert my heart broke for her.

    Totally agree on Beastly! Alex Pettyfer is HOT! Have you seen I Am Number Four? Sci-Fi and he’s the main character, so I liked it.

    My toilet in the master bath kept running. I jiggled. I pulled up on the floatie thing. Nothing worked. It was freaking TORTURE. I called in my friend, Chris, who came over to assess the situation. He asked if I used those drop in things, which I didn’t. I did, however, have a Kaboom insert in the tank. He told me not to use it because it disintegrates and builds up in the bottom of the tank and the flapper thingie doesn’t close properly. Then he proceeded to stink his arm in the tank to clean out sludge in the bottom…

    It’s a true friend who cleans unidentifiable sludge out of your shitter bare handed.
