Do not want

by Chelsea Myers on November 28, 2011

Two things I definitely do not want to for Christmas: 1. Jukusui-kun, the giant bear pillow that tickles your face at night if you snore. 2. Any craft book that involves my own pet’s fur I guess you could make the argument that a dog and a sheep are not really that different, but… ew. Seen/heard […]


Woe to the Gators

by Chelsea Myers on November 27, 2011

An exchange on the Gators’ message board that pretty much sums up our entire season: What do you think about the Gators’ execution? I’m for it.  The coaches, too.Yeesh, that game could not end fast enough.  The Gators played horribly, and that was BEFORE our quarterback threw three touchdowns and had to be Medivac-ed out […]

Now that the temperature has dropped another 10 degrees, it’s time for a new installment of What I Wore Wednesday. This is a 20 – 30 degree outfit that I wore to run about 6 miles a couple weekends ago.  From top to bottom, I’m wearing a fleece headband, a long sleeved tech shirt under […]

Mash Up

Have you ever thought about two different songs being sung about the same thing but from both the male and female perspective? Like Carole King’s “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?”                                                  […]


Seven things Sunday

by Chelsea Myers on November 20, 2011


1. What would blogging be without internet memes?  I wouldn’t even know what that word meant. I started it all!  There’s no going back. 2. Funny political news story of the weekend: Lululemon customers are outraged over the company’s new “Who is John Galt?” shopping bags.  Evidently Lululemon’s founder, Chip Wilson, was a huge fan of […]

Change of plans

by Chelsea Myers on November 16, 2011

I started this month with the good intention of continuing to bike to work every day.  However, reality- in the form of it being super cold in the morning and dark by 5pm- has set in and I decided to hang up my bike helmet for the season after I got home on Monday.  It […]
