Happy Friday everyone! I’m so glad the work week is almost over, but I’m not looking forward to being on call every weekend for the rest of the month. It’s a serious bummer being on call every single weekend for FOUR months out of the year. I know lots of people work weekends and I’m lucky to have a job, but I did not know I’d be on call four months out of the year upon saying yes to taking this job. When I interviewed I was told I’d be on call 1 month a year. 1 month is not so bad, but 1/4th of my year is a different story. As a result, there will be lots of Thirsty Thursdays this month because on call hours go from Fridays at 6PM to Sunday around 6PM.
Yesterday and today have been unbearably hot in the Boston area with extreme humidity. Yesterday was so humid that when I left my air conditioned office building to walk to the T, I was actually finding it difficult to breath. I had to walk a lot slower and felt like I was struggling to get air. I’ve never experienced this in Massachusetts before so it scared me. So when I got home I turned both Air Conditioners on full blast and waited for my apartment to cool down a bit before I could find it comfortable enough to do yoga. Our kitchen doesn’t have a window unit air conditioner, so there is no way I was spending any time in there to cook or chop vegetables. I made a yummy plate of fun foods for dinner! Pictured below are Lemon & Garlic Olives, Cheese, Stonewall Jam, Rosemary and Olive Oil Crackers, and a mix of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and peanut butter chips. All of these things are from Whole Foods except the chips. Not pictured below is the chilled Pinot Noir I was drinking. I enjoyed this plate of snacks while catching up on Pretty Little Liars and then tuning into Stepbrothers and The Olympics.
*warning – spoiler alert ahead* I’ve been watching Pretty Little Liars since it first came out and have felt that the show has gone down the tubes this season or even a little bit before this season. I was disappointed when we found out who A is, and have fallen off the HALEB bandwagon. Caleb left Hanna for a RAVENSWOOD ghost. Then he has a serious relationship with on of her best friends. He is also very quick to leave and move out on a woman. Doesn’t he know by now not to pack up all his things right away and peace out? I really loved Haleb and think the actors have great chemistry together, but I just can’t forget about Caleb’s fleeting heart. I think he really needs to do some more proving of himself in order to be worthy of Hanna again. Most importantly SPOBY. I am still very team SPOBY and was tearing up at Spencer and Toby’s goodbye last night. I wonder if that really is the last we’ll see of them together. I’m hoping it’s not (even though Toby’s fiance seems like a great catch). Since I’m recapping HALEB and SPOBY, I mean as well touch on the point of EZRIA. We all knew Aria not telling Ezra about a phone call from his dead girlfriend was going to come back to bite her in the ass. How many times do you need to get into trouble for lying in your life before you realize you should be honest? Seriously, these girls are so stupid sometimes. I’m glad Emily’s Mom was able to let loose and enjoy her birthday eventually! Jason DiLaurentis should be called Jason DiLahotness. Although I liked him more pre-hipster vibe. I actually liked this week’s episode a lot more than the rest of the season. So I’m hoping the show continues to pick up.
Maybe I’ll start watching Stranger Things this weekend. Has anyone seen Suicide Squad yet? Kraig and I saw it last weekend and it was certainly entertaining. There were completely CHEESIE parts and it was a tad long, but Margot Robbie and Will Smith carried the film for me.
What is everyone up to this weekend? I have my niece’s 6 year old birthday party tomorrow and then my friend’s baby shower on Sunday. A fun filled weekend of children stuff! This was my first full work week since sometime in July, so I was very scared to face it, but I survived.
