Humpday Confessions #3

Linking up with Kathy for her most awesome link up. You should too, don't ask questions.
also known as the Kristen is far too obsessed with gifs day.



Sometimes, I'll be out for a run or doing other stuff, like in public.. with people, and I will think something. Out loud. Emphasis on loud. I get a lot of weird looks.

Like... for my half marathon I was listening to an audio book and yelling at the character because she was slow and dense and wasn't getting the obvious. When she finally got it, I yelled 'DUH!' really loudly. People must thought I was cuckoo, but at least they got outta my way!

If I have to work too hard to leave a comment on a blog, I won't. I'm looking at you effingcaptchathing I can't read. I'll try once, but if it tells me no, I tell it no by exiting out of that mother trucker. I don't mind the numbers one, but the letters one makes me feel 80 the way I have to squint at the screen.


I answer the phones at work, and some people talk really fast or say 'it's John' and get cranky at me when I ask them to repeat or provide more information. It shouldn't annoy me but it makes me want to reach through the phone and strangle something that is not their neck.


I love when people ask me intelligent questions - or questions they really think are legitimate - about where I am from. I hate when they ask questions and they think they are being funny. You are the millionth person to ask me if I rode my pet kangaroo to school. It wasn't funny the first time, it's not funny now.

Sometimes I take the piss out of them.



Most of the time I just give them my death-iest stare and say 'I'm gonna pretend you didn't say that'.


I promise though, sometimes I can be a nice person. 

Please don't be discouraged if you do want to ask questions. I didn't have pet koalas or kangaroos, no dingo stole my baby and I don't talk like Paul Hogan. And no-one drinks fosters.

I posted a pic of my new jeans on instagram and someone said that she didn't like them on me. I don't care that I asked for opinions, I wanted lies! Jk. Kinda.



I'm blaming it on the way I was standing because I effing love them.

I have been back at the gym 2 days and I already feel like such a (sore) badass.




Lastly.... just cause, you know. I'm obsessed. giggles!

  1. I know what you mean about the captcha thing! I click "publish" all smug and rather than seeing the page refresh I have to squint at my screen trying to read a blurry photo of somebody's address. The worst.

  5. wtf why even leave a comment like that? bitches be crazy.

    captcha drives me crazy. if it's a new blogger i'm looking to follow and there's captcha, i won't follow. what also drives me nuts is google+. don't link me back to your google+ profile because i won't be clicking on that. and don't they know that google+ is like fetch? IT'S NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!

    thanks for linking up!

  7. This is hilarious!! I totally can see how explaining things about growing up in Australia would get annoying especially when people as stupid questions...like they can't possibly think they are funny or original!! I feel the same way about going to the gym...sore but oh so happy!

  8. Ahhh you're Aussie??? Im going there this year! My sister and her husband and my nephew and niece live there! My nephew and niece were actually born there! So following you now!

  9. OMG I couldn't agree more about the stupid captcha thingy. Ugh! So annoying! If I'm leaving a comment on a blog and I get the captcha wrong twice I just give up. And if I'm commenting from my phone and that pops up I don't even try! I swear those things are going to make us go blind! My coworker is from Australia too and she ALWAYS sends me the BuzzFeed Aussie posts and I'm always cracking up. When she first moved here people asked her the dumbest questions!

  10. I loved this post. lol. You're confessions make me giggle. I thought the rule was that if you didn't have anything nice to say to somebody on a social platform, then you just don't say shit. I sure as hell wouldn't go out of my way to tell somebody I didn't like their jeans on them. How Rude!

  11. I can relate to losing my patience at work. Thankfully for them, we have a policy that won't allow me to tell them what I really effin think!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wait? Someone actually told you they didn't like your jeans on you? Who in the world? Who asked for their opinion?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ughhhh, the captcha thing.. I can't even. I know it's supposed to prevent spam but you're also preventing comments! And I can't believe someone told you they didn't like your pants! Who does that?! It's just rude!

    ReplyDelete
  14. The GIFs are spot on! Love them.

  15. Captcha is the worst! I understand why it's there, but SERIOUSLY... DOES IT HAVE TO BE SO SMALL!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. hahah these make me laugh so hard always. love it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. haha I love this! Captcha is awful, I have given up so many times when trying to leave comments. I love all the gifs!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I get annoyed when people ask me dumb questions about being from NJ...I can only imagine how irritating it would be to be from Australia!

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOL!!!! This was hysterical - love it and I have many of the pet peeves you have!

    ReplyDelete
  20. But really she had to leave that instagram comment? Hasn't she heard of "if you can't say something nice..."

    This post had me laughing out loud at my office, i love it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okay so first off I confess that I stared at that Chris Hemsworth gif for WAY too long...lord that man is gorgeous...ANYWAY I love all of your confessions. Gold. I hate it when people think they're being hilarious and top it off by laughing at their own jokes. And you got MAJOR bonus points by using a Sir Paul McCartney gif too. :D Have a great hump day girl!

  22. Do you find it is men that do the stupid question thing most often? I hate when people do that! I give them the fake smile and then go straight to bitch-face and answer in a flat tone :) I've found it works well. I am so with you on the captcha!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I must confess that I died laughing at all your wonderful confessions. Can I just agree with all of them? I've worked out the past 2 days as well, I hurt like no other but you better believe I squeezed myself into a pair of jeans that I haven't been able to get past my hips for the past year! I'm off to go stalk you on all forms of social media you have posted. (don't take that in a creepy way lol)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Captcha is ridiculous! I exited someone's blog earlier because of it. Like, really? Why is that even a thing?!

    Why does there always have to be someone leaving a rude comment?! Didn't we all learn when we were five that if we don't have something nice to say...then we probably shouldn't say it at all?

    ReplyDelete
  25. So funny, cracking me up!! People love asking dumb questions!! Umm... Lies of course, who tells someone that?! I hate the captcha shit- take it off people!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Captcha is terrible. And Texas is its own world so I have dealt with my fair share of dumb questions - I can only imagine what it's like for you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOL Kristen.. Love the memes (is that what you call it?) or animated gifs?

  28. i'm totally convinced i can do an australian accent. ;) and i most certainly left a part of my heart there when i've visited. love it!!
    omg i cannnotttt stand captcha or whenever you have to click and the profile is google+ and then you have to search for the blog (which many don't even link!) and then i QUIT THAT BISH!

  29. Honest to baby jesus, when people ask me questions at all I give them the stank eye. As much as we say there is no such thing as a stupid question, there most definitely is. I am actually known for giving the stank eye, so much so that I don't even realize I do it anymore.

  30. i also will close out of leaving a comment if its too hard. sorry, its probably not worth it if you need 500 ways to verify i'm not a robot!

    also, those jeans look great on you (i'm assuming the old navy ones?) haters gonna hate.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You rock in the GIF department!! Also not a fan of captcha!! Soooo annoying!!

Thank you so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger :-) If you are here to be a troll, please kindly bugger off. Thanks!
