So…What’s Next?

January 4, 2011 at 10:28 pm 14 comments

Well I guess the bosses were serious when they said we had to work five straight days right after the holidays.  Is it wrong that I think there should be obligatory company sponsored pizza parties and happy hours every day during the week after a break to ease us back in?

Say, that’s not a bad idea.  I might bring it up at tomorrow’s staff meeting.

The cat would also like in on the happy hour business.

In honor of making it through this first week of 2011, I thought I’d entertain you with my answers to a poll that the lovely and hilarious Holly tagged me in.

Four TV Shows I Watch

  • Mad Men (ie, the best show on TV.  No joke.  It’s on AMC.  You should catch up on episodes, I’m telling you.)
  • Modern Family
  • The news (yessir,  I do)
  • The Real Housewives (what?  It makes me seem totally normal!)

And I can always use something in my life that makes me seem more normal.

Four Things I’m Passionate About

  • My family
  • Belly laughing
  • Really good food
  • Theatre (and acting in general)

Yes, that’s me.  “Pregnant”.  On stage.  Ahhh, the glory days.

Four Words/Phrases I Use Too Much

  • “You don’t know me, I do what I want.”
  • “Mmhmm, mmhmm, mmhmm”  (in an affirmative tone.  Tough to type out, apparently.)
  • “Right??”  (the boss started it at work.  What?  It’s catchy!)
  • “Oh girl, I want to email you so nice.”  (click here and I dare you not to laugh)


Four Things I’ve Learned From the Past

  • Richard Simmons hair is only a good look when you’re two years old- I would know.
  • Sleeping past 10 am is overrated.
  • Appreciate college while you’re still in it.  Cliche? Absolutely.  True? Without a doubt.
  • Things can always get worse.  And they can always get better.

Four Things I’m Looking Forward To

  • A cocktail date I have set for later this week with a friend.
  • Daylight lasting past 4:30 pm.
  • The Superbowl- no matter who plays.
  • Vacations to New Orleans and Mexico later this year.

Four Things I Love About Winter

  • The fact that you can pass off a chunky sweater as dinnerwear.  At least I like to.
  • Blankets.  Lots of blankets.
  • Getting snowed in.
  • Labskause (Scandinavian beef stew).  It only seems appropriate when the weather is straight up cold.

Tag Four People To Play Along

  • Katie because she’s bound to have tons of hilarious anecdotes to share.  Even though she’s a Packers fan. :)
  • Madeline – I’m sure her awesome new job has spawned a bunch of great stories.
  • The lovely and sweet Courtney.
  • Andrea – I always want to know what she has to say!

Your turn!

Holiday Hangover That Just Happened


  • 1. Katie  |  January 5, 2011 at 12:26 am

    I’ve got a lot of thinking to do…

    You make a hot looking pregnant lady.

    • 2. Megan  |  January 5, 2011 at 9:12 am

      Thank you. This is good info in case I decide that I want to get knocked up- really, it’s all about how you look while you’re doing it. Happy thinking!

  • 3. Amy @ Second City Randomness  |  January 5, 2011 at 6:19 am

    You totally glowed as a pregnant lady. Or maybe it was just the crazy look in your eye? Either way…

  • 4. greensandjeans  |  January 5, 2011 at 7:25 am

    Okay, we are soul mates. I probably yell “you don’t know me, I do want I want” at least once a day. And now I have some serious pondering to do.

    • 5. Megan  |  January 5, 2011 at 9:12 am

      Haha, no way! Happy thinking. :)

  • 6. lowandbhold  |  January 5, 2011 at 9:34 am

    Mad Men is DEF the best show on TV. Love it. And I miss college for real.

  • 7. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life  |  January 5, 2011 at 9:54 am

    Ooooo, fun! I’m looking forward to this! Gotta put my thinkin’ cap on. :)
