Stuff and Things 5/22

+I have been pulled headfirst into the world of Gossip Girl.  Good Lord.  Where have I been for the last 7 years?

Actually, I try to avoid the WB/CW like the plague because that's the network that totes stuff like The Vampire Diaries (or am I missing out on that too?) and other overdramatic shows directed at the under-17 crowd.

But when Scott was in Colorado last weekend, I started watching on Netflix.  I'm already just about finished with season 2.  That's …several episodes in less than a week.  And I have a job, guys.

I find it fascinating and the acting, I think, is actually really good.

My favorite?

However, as someone warned me on Twitter, you've got to watch in small doses.  It messes with your mind.  The dramatics, the clothing, the now-ancient cell phones.  (I saw my cell phone from 2006 AND the one from 2008.  Fun!)  However, it was very hard to go back to my plebeian lifestyle after a weekend of Gossip Girl, popcorn, and wine.  It actually felt difficult and unfair.  That's a sign that maybe I need to take a break from the show.

+However, the week wasn't all non-glamourous un-fun.  I got to go to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum on a field trip!  The third time for me.

+Acupuncture hurt this week.  Last week, I didn't feel a thing and it was wonderfully relaxing.  This week, ugh.  The doctor said that means it's working, especially in certain spots that seem to be extra tender. I was exhausted afterward. It's a frustrating process.  She also told me to stay away from cold stuff (beverages).  Not sure how I feel about that.  It's iced coffee season.

+And that's all I have today.  Sorry for the weak post.

+Tomorrow I have "before" pictures from our new house in Colorado.  Exciting stuff!


  1. i'm glad you're sticking with the acupuncture but yikes! I hate that it hurt! I got sucked into gossip girl last year around the time I was having surgery. Just after surgery J called me an amnesiac because he'd come in at odd hours of the night to give me my pain pills--I'd be wide awake. I'd take my meds, start an episode of GG and settle in. And fall asleep seconds later. And we'd repeat the cycle every 5 hours--so I started the SAME episode of GG like 15 times haha! I agree that it got to the point where I was like "wait, where's my trust fund?" I LOVE CHUCK!!!

  2. I tried to watch Gossip Girl on Netflix but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll have to give it another go...

  3. I have never watched Gossip Girl, but I feel like that will happen soon! Cannot wait to see the house photos! When is your ETA again?

  4. I freaking love Gossip Girl. I'm obsessed with Chuck Bass still. Fabulous character.

    I can't wait for more new house pics.

    I'm jealous of your Laura Ingalls trip!

  5. I want to go to the Laura Ingalls house/museum so, so badly. In fact, I think I'm going to look into right now.

    I've never watched Gossip Girl. I'm not sure I should start.

  6. Can't wait to see pictures of your house!

  7. I tried watching Gossip Girl...I lasted about 20 minutes. Maybe I need to try again. After I watch Season 3 of Scandal, that is.

    I'm excited for house before/afters!

  8. Wait, why are you getting acupuncture? Did I miss something?

  9. I've always wanted to try acupuncture but I'm totally skeptical. Maybe one day. Hope it works for you and stops making you sore though.

    Ooh I cant wait to see your "before" picture :)

  10. That looks like the Colorado I know and love! (Except maybe I like the mountains a bit more...)

  11. Field trip of my dreams. :)

    I need to try gossip girl. Right now we are so hooked on Scandal that our DVR got to 2%. lol


Comments make my day!
