Some random thoughts / confessions

Two posts today! I had to / wouldn't miss the return of Kathy's link up (with the addition of one of my favourites Nadine!) for the world. I don't know about this new guy on the button though, I know you love him Kathy but Wickham is a scoundrel!

More Coffee Less Talky

The other day I stopped to get petrol. Even though my car has the little arrow (did you know about the arrow?) I pulled up and my thingy was on the wrong side. So I drove to another one, hoping no-one noticed. Got out of the car, yep I did it again. Okay, okay, I've got this. I exit that spot and start to reverse into it, but I reversed into the one next to it instead, which means I did it for the third time. I drove off. Who needs petrol anyway?


Megan and I went out for Halloween, and there was this weird creepy guy following us around all night, hitting on us even though we both said we were married and then he kept asking us if we'd ever been drugged / roofied.


Yeah okay. Naturally we tried to keep the hell away from him. As we were leaving, I noticed him talking to a girl, giving her a drink. He walked off somewhere and I told her he was a creep and to stay away from him, and I told her what he had said about the roofies. She said 'that guy? that guy right there?' I said yes. She said 'that's my boyfriend' and I was like... er... must be going now.



Normally I kind of just peruse netgalley, seeing things that might be interesting, over requesting books I don't actually want to read.. I rarely see a book that makes me squeal and wriggle in my seat like please give this to me netgalley. I feel like sending them an email recommending myself for this book.


Spoiler: they didn't pick me. Just like McDreamy didn't pick McMeredith.


I have 3 meatloaf songs on my 'fun' playlist at work. I only like 2 of them though, but I suppose 2 out of 3 ain't bad.


The other day, the 'I don't wanna wait' song (Dawson's Creek) came on the radio, and after snapping it (#loser), I called KC singing, and okay I don't have the best voice. Suddenly I hear 'Kristen? KRISTEN ARE YOU OKAY ARE YOU HURT WHAT IS WRONG?'

Because I was singing.



Jeez thanks husband.

Speaking of singing, I know all the words to far too many Hannah Montana songs.


and I've watched the entire TV show. and the movie.

The other day, I visited a blog I hadn't visited in a long time. I used to follow and comment etc etc but she never ever ever visited mine, and I'm not saying you have to, but again with the brick wall. It's no fun. Anyway... She just happened to have a carry on only packing post and she said she had never seen one done before.


Never? Ever ever? I'm not just talking about mine, but there are millions out there on the internet. I can't quite put my finger on why it annoyed me exactly, but it did. Don't pretend you are the first at something that is all over the internet. You're not.


Megan and I went shopping on the weekend. We decided to stop in at Starbucks, as basic white girls do. Lol jk. Anyway. The girl behind the register clearly hated her life. It was my turn. I said 'hello, may I please have a venti hot chocolate. May I please have half the amount of chocolate that you normally put in?' She didn't even look at me, just said 'yep'. Okay... I said 'and all the whip'. Most people laugh at this, I know I'm not a comedian, but still. Lighten up girl. No lightening up. We move over to wait. The guy calls out 'mocha half hot chocolate blah blah' and I'm like 'um, this has no coffee in it, right?' he smiles and says 'yep!'. We walk outside, I take the lid off, and there is no effing whipped cream.


It doesn't melt that fast.

It's okay, I'm an adult. It's fine. I take a sip.


I did not handle it that gracefully, but there was no gif to show you what I did. I marched back in there, nice as can be and asked for a hot chocolate without coffee please. They make it. He hands it to me, says 'no whip hot chocolate'.


The scale went down the other day! I refuse to get back on it until well after Disney in case it was a fluke, or in case it went back up.


Happy wednesday y'all!

  1. I love your confessions posts! They are always a bright spot in the morning for me. I'm glad you stayed away from creepy roofie guy....awkward that he was acting like that with a gf nearby. I wonder what she thought when you told her he was creepy (and what he had been doing! Ew!)
    They Greys reference made me giggle, and yes, ignorance is bliss sometimes. NOT when you are ordering hot chocolate tho. Stupid Starbucks!
    Thanks for the laugh this morning. Link this up with Jessi and I today!

  2. the roofie guy WTF. that girlfriend needs to kick that creep to the curb.

    as for the bloggers who never visit you -- BYE! i have tried multiple times to interact with this one blogger but she legit pays me no mind so see ya!

  3. These types of posts from you are always my favorite! Ignorance is bliss when it comes to scales... I tossed mine out like two years ago and always turn the other way when they have to weigh me at the doctor's office. Weight? What weight? I don't see it... :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. Haha, I so do that, if I see a number on the scale I like I am like well that is enough of that for the next six months!

    ReplyDelete
  5. LOL I love this! I want to agree with you about the scale but I think I just need to stay off it permanently because mine doesn't go down... only up! And the story about the guy at the bar... um so creepy. That girl need to break up with him ASAP! He's weird! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    ReplyDelete
  6. I felt so awkward when that girl said that was her boyfriend! What a weirdo. That blogger sounds annoying, and sounds like she never ever reads anyone blog but her own.

  7. LOL at the singing and Scuttle for the win! And ohhhh man, I'm skeeved out just reading about the roofie guy. Glad you girls were safe <3

  8. Bahahaha brick wall posters. I appreciate all of this- other than the coffee story. I get anxiety hives over ordering anything out of the ordinary at Starbucks. My mouth becomes full of cotton balls and I can barely utter my name. Too many choices and sizes and milk types...

    ReplyDelete
  9. That creepy guy story is the best. Just not for his girlfriend though eek. Dawson's Creek was the best show. It was so much drama for my little junior high world back then, but I guess you weren't in jr high since that doesn't exist in Australia?!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Don't you LOVE when bloggies kind of take away something from your post and don't give credit...it's the best, hahaha!

    Oh husbands and their ridiculous missunderstandings, I bet you sounded BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I could not have dealt with Starbucks. Having worked in food service there is nothing, truly nothing, that annoys me more (because there are SO many things) than having my food/beverage order messed up. It immediately sets me off. ::opens bagel, full of cream cheese:: What didn't you understand about "toasted with butter"??

    ReplyDelete
  12. ok this whole post cracked me up girl! that guy sounded super creepy! this is reason number 398 why i cannot find a date anywhere. haha. the arrow on the gas symbol thing in cars has saved me more times than most. but that's still a funny story. love it!

    xoxo cheshire kat

    ReplyDelete
  13. So many things to discuss...I have been there with the gas more times than I care to admit. I didn't know about the arrow thing until a month ago (MFD had to tell me) and I have still screwed it up more than once in one stop. I feel you.

    Dying laughing at the creeper roofier & his lady - you shouldn't feel bad, they probably work as a team like we see on Criminal Minds!

    But the best is KC thinking something is wrong with you because you were singing. hahahahhahaha

    ReplyDelete
  14. omg the backpack post--totally feel you. there's one blogger (now a former commenter) who never liked whatever i suggested beauty-wise on my blog. but another blogger or famous yt person would talk about it and then suddenly there would be a post--omg you guys, i've never heard of this before until X mentioned it! and in my head i'm like yes,you did. three months ago, when you commented on my blog about it. and i want to comment about all the other confessions but i've gotta go to work, but i loved them!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm dying over what KC said when you called him singing - that right there made my day!!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

    ReplyDelete
  16. SO MANY THINGS TO COMMENT ON!!!!
    That girl saying that was her boyfriend - I busted out laughing. OOPSIE!
    Love what you did there with the Meatloaf 2 out of 3 aint bad ;) My kinda girl.
    What is the deal when you cant get the drink you want? I waited in line at a coffee shop for 15 minutes yeterday for the WORST COFFEE EVER> I literally looked at it & threw it away - the color should not look like vomit.
    Petrol. You call gas Petrol? You are classy.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I almost fell over in my seat when I read that the creepy guy was that girl's boyfriend. HA! Awkward!

    Please tell me about this arrow thing. I got a new (to me) car in May and I STILL can't remember what side the gas tank is on! I'm constantly pulling up to the wrong side.

    I feel you with the blog thing. I feel like I've be slacking in the commenting department because this fall has been SO CRAZY and I've been working long hours, but I do still try to make it to the blogs I love to comment... and seriously, no one's idea is 100% original in blog land anymore. It's all been done. Who does this girl think she is? Beyonce?!

    ReplyDelete
  18. hahahaahha @ creeper guy! I have no idea what I'd do except slowly creep away! and whatevs to the girl that won't comment back -- plus your travel posts/packing posts are bomb ass anyway -- best I've seen!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. So I just recently read Pride and Prejudice but haven't seen the movie. I had no idea that Quinn is Wickham! This changes everything! Also, I get so annoyed when they mess up my drink at Starbucks. I get an iced americano, it is literally espresso and water. I can't even say how many times I get straight espresso on ice. I feel like the dumb one every time that I have to correct them.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This post is awesome and I may have laughed out loud at the petrol story! I didn't understand what you meant by petrol at first though, hahaha! I pointed out that arrow thingy to a friend last week......she had no clue!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lol! yeah petrol = gas :) i feel weird, like an impostor, saying gas though!

  21. Not going to lie I would kind of liked to have been a fly on the wall when that girl discussed the roofied information with her boyfriend...just to see how that went down.
    This post just made my hump day so much better!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I HATE getting gas! Those places are the worst and I give you credit for perserverance because if I ever pull up to the wrong side, I just leave without even trying to pull up to another pump. That's why I usually wait until Brian is driving my car and ask him to stop and get gas for me.

    That is so funny about KC thinking you were hurt when singing, that totally sounds like something Brian would do because I am awful at singing. Usually I'm just singing my ringtone for him when he calls so I think he's gotten used to it lol.

    Last, it is not that freaking complicated to make drinks, I swear! I hate when they mess it up! I worked at the third busiest Starbucks in the world for like a year and guess what? If you listen to people's orders and are not totally stupid, you don't mess them up! Arghhh

    P.S. Bon Qui Qui, I love her and that gif!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hahahahahaha I suppose 2 out of 3 ain't bad. I cant stop laughing. I cant!!! :) So many awesome confessions. I have been there with the gas. Wayyyyy more times than I will admit here. So no judging here. You just drive off gracefully and find another fill station. No one knows the wiser. And ummmm the creeper with the gf? Yikes! Honey, time to find yourself someone else for reals!!!!!

    And WTF Starbucks??? I think they are like Chick Fila and it is required that they be nice and friendly and shit. I aint paying no $5 for a drink that you cant get right...damnit!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The roofie guy story is so disturbing!! His poor girlfriend lol! And confession: I've seen the Hannah Montana movie, too... no shame.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Omg that girl's creepy boyfriend! I'm honestly not sure if the fact that he was her boyfriend makes that story better or worse. Yikes.
    Ugh that blogger :/ I have the opposite problem, I assume that everything I want to post about has already been posted a million times. Sometimes I still post it, sometimes I don't because does the Internet really need another version of the same post?
    But really Starbucks employees do have selective hearing. They have a spinach fold over thing that I like, and a spinach wrap that I don't like....but apparently when I order the thing I do like all they hear is spinach and give me the thing I don't like. I feel bad asking them to remake stuff but like...if you just weren't listening, that's on you.

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG Mr. McRaperson was her BOYFRIEND?! I almost don't believe you that is too tv show perfect! Also, I may have left a comment on that girls blog saying, oh you should totally check out my post to see how I did it! But, I am a mean, petty person at times.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Holy smokes, I'm glad you warned that woman! Even if she was his girlfriend...yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would be dumping his a$$ if that was my boyfriend, but alas that's why I'm usually boyfriendless, lol. I remember thinking I was going to post something a lot of people needed and someone else beat me to it the day before I was scheduled. Claiming you've never seen it is BAD! All of my cars had the gas tank on the opposite side of the car I have now and FIVE years later I'll still pull up to the wrong side. *face palm*

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ah I love these gifs! You are absolutely hilarious, I love your confessions posts! I definitely agree that ignorance is bliss when it comes to the scale...I have totally done the same thing before!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This post made me laugh out loud! Ummm how creepy is roofie guy?! I would've been seriously skeeved out O.o

    ReplyDelete
  31. hahaha I'm so glad someone else has had issues getting gas! I do that too often! Also, I too have watched all of Hannah Montana. It makes me sad how crazy Miss Miley got post-Hannah days. The gossipy side of me really wants to know who that blogger is now.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ewww creepy roofie guy is creepy.
    And I see what you did there with the Meatloaf songs..... I may have laughed out loud at work.....

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ohhhh my goshhhh the roofie guy!!! Hahaha wow, his girlfriend is one lucky lady, I tell ya. #boyfriendgoals

    And also that Blair gif is perfection.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I totally watched all of Hannah Montana the TV show as well! It was cute. And I saw the movie. And I loved her songs. Did you ever hear Miley's backyard sessions? Her Jolene video is my favorite. So pretty. :)

    OH MY GOODNESS! I can't believe that guy was her boyfriend! #seriouslycreepy #awkward

    And the gas tank thing... oh man, I've been there. Well, not three times in a row, ha! But I have done that before.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haha the Hannah Montana show, I'm guilty of watching a couple of episodes back in the day. And I've definitely done the gas station thing before too, it's pretty embarrassing because I've had the same car for like 6 years and I should know which side he fuel tank is on lol. Whoa about the creepy guy at the bar and his girlfriend, at least we know that she probably likes roofies :/

    ReplyDelete
  36. Omggggg...so awkward! But at least you warned her that he was being creepy to other people!

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG the roofie guy is crazy, how could she not react more than that. Creeper. There is this one publisher on NetGalley that always denies me and I checked their criteria and I follow it. so I emailed them to see if there was any additional information I could provide and got nothing back. So rude!

    That coffee experience is basically me at work lately. So frustrating and I am just giving up.

    ReplyDelete
  38. UM, that is so creepy about that guy!!! Are you serious??? Even though that sounds really, really awkward about when his girlfriend said that- she should be in the know! What a complete creepshow Who even asks that question: "Have you ever been roofied". Okay, bye. (love the Gloria gif for that).

    I swear my car doesn't have an arrow! Now I must search to confirm this.

    really fun read as usual!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. OMG - I am dying about the bar story about that creeper and his girlfriend. Wonder what happened between the two of them that night, ha! I swear that most Starbucks employees hate their lives - every once in a while, I get a really nice person, but most of the time they all act like they hate you. We went in there the morning of my cousin's wedding, and we requested that they write "bride" and "bridesmaid" on the cups (I know, SO basic), and I thought the girl was asking us to perform brain surgery. Way to go on the fitness stuff, lady - I really need to get my ass in gear!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow, that roofie guy and his girlfriend situation sounds so awkward! Does the petrol situation mean you got your license?! That's so exciting! I know how you feel about NetGalley. Half the time I'm like whyyy did I request that book? I don't want to read it! I never get the ones I really really want. (except Beatriz Williams. That was so exciting). I have managed to read quite a few good books from there though!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh my lord. Your gif game is this post is on point. Scuttle? I'm dying.

    Whenever Jim gets my Starbucks he orders it "with effing whipped cream" because it's a big freakin deal if they don't put it on there lolol

    Also bless your little petrol speaking heart

    ReplyDelete
  42. That guy is super creeper and his g/f.....oh man she needs to get out of that situation like...now.

    The hot chocolate thing would have sent me into a rage....mostly because I so very rarely spend the money on a drink for myself and if it was messed up...twice...I would have lost my mind.

    I have a girl who's blog I was reading and she is constantly doing that! She follows a bunch of blogs but doesn't comment and then *magically* she has a post that she "has never seen before" even though I know she follows blogs that have done them before! Ugh.....

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sooo I actually have no idea who that is on the button.....
    I totally LOL'ed picturing your gas station escapades. I don't know what's wrong with me, but every single time I go to get gas I forget which side my tank is on (the same side it's been on for the last year you've had the car, Alyssa...) and I have to check the arrow before I pull into the station. Sometimes I worry about myself.
    OMG stop, the girl's boyfriend!? That is creeptacular on a whole different level. Ew. Scary. Wtf.
    Honestly that carry-on thing would have probably annoyed me too. I can't stand when people take things like this too seriously. Listen, we're all out here together in blogland. We know what's up, and you're not fooling anyone. Just admit that you wanted to throw your own $.02 into the conversation, that's fine. Just don't be all weird about it.
    (Also, you have to tell me who the blogger was, obvi)

  45. Thank goodness the petrol and the hot chocolate weren't in the same day, because I think I would have lost it! And OMG the girl's bf? Yeah, totally would have run away. But at least you tried to warn her! I mean hello, your man is hitting on other girls... how did you not notice this?!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh my god. I LAUGHED for like 5 minutes straight over the roofie guy story and then read it aloud to my husband who died laughing. That sounds like crap that would happen to me, hahaha so funny!! Glad you survived the night!

  47. hahahah I LOVE these confessions posts for this linkup!! Yours is hilarious!!! Freaking brick wall bloggers, kills me haha K WHAT that guy!! What a weirdo and so freaking funny you tried to warn the girl who was his girlfriend. I would literally be worried if my boyfriend asked random girls if they've been drugged before. Who asks that?! And for the gas station... one time I took Jason's car to get gas (or if I want to be fancy, I'll say petrol like you :) ) (ps I feel like saying petrol is so fancy!! haha) anyways, I took his car to get it filled and I couldn't open the gas door thing on the car. Like 10 calls later and asking the attendant for help, I was trying to open the wrong side of the door. I'M SMART!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love that the link up is back. I had no clue what the arrow meant until a few months ago. I feel really dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I died laughing so many times during this post! I would have driven off too if I had gotten into the wrong side multiple times while trying to get gas. At least you didn't drive off with the pump still in the car, that happened to somebody I know.
    My husband can't stand my singing either. He once laughed at me, in CHURCH! I was so mad!
    I can't believe you kept your cool with the whole hot chocolate thing! I would've been so mad at the baristas!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Haha!! That roofie story makes me want to facepalm. That poor girlfriend. And seriously. Starbucks? I would've been irritated beyond belief. WHAT IS SOME PEOPLES' PROBLEMS? But that grumpy little girl meme is lol lol lol.

  51. Bahaha I feel like I would definitely do the reversing in and out of spots at the gas station. I am terrible at reversing into spots to begin with, and I have a mini car. I hope that girl figures out her boyfriend is a creep lol. Or maybe she knows and likes him anyway. Your confessions crack me up... I usually turn the volume way up in my car when I'm belting a song at the top of my lungs, so that I can pretend I sound just like the artist.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love your confessions! Creepy Halloween guy and girlfriend sound like an interesting couple...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Umm that guy sounds like a super creep! I wonder how the night turned out for him & his girlfriend....
    I love that you have an itty bitty confession of watching all of Hannah Montana. I liked that show. No shame!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Nice Meatloaf reference. Very nice indeed. Uhm. Have you ever been drugged or roofied? People that have a girlfriend ask this question to other girls? We live in a strange world with creepy people, this I know, but seriously?!?! I love how you called out the gal who created that awesome-original post that had never been done before! (I'm giving you a side eye now) I pretty much say all the time that nothing I post is original. Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  55. That Meatloaf joke... grooooan!

    I really like the Dawson's Creek song. If you listen to the entire thing it's actually a really sad story.

    And that girl deserved to know her boyfriend was going round saying creepy things to other women :-/

    ReplyDelete
  56. OMG I am dying at your confessions and the GIFs!! HAHAHA!! I also love your confession about the blogger who shunned you. You know my feelings on that but now I want to know who it is so I can shun this blogger with you! #nosy

  57. lololol this was a good one! Non-blog back friends are no fun. And that person sounds delusional. LOL. Our starbucks girl was really rude the other day... and I was really needing caffeine... so I was extra annoyed. Not rude... but very miffed. Planning a confessions post for Friday (wednesday was a holiday for our office...) so maybe I'll stick that story in there... Oh my lord that guy sounds all kinds of skeevy. Ew. :( Nice of you to tell her... but completely insane she is dating him! XO -Alexandra

  58. I hate when starbucks messes up the orders. I went there the other day and kind of doubted myself because it was early and didn't credit my crappy 2% latte to them, but there is just no way that I didn't say non-fat...

    ReplyDelete
  59. the roofie guy is creepy and mortifying all in one. I wonder if the girl realizes she is dating such a weirdo?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Omg the guy had a girlfriend?! Die! But what a creep though!

    ReplyDelete
  61. OMGGGGGGG to the creepy guy asking if you've been roofed. WTF?!? What was that girl's reaction when you told her?

    ReplyDelete
  62. What was with the girl with the creepy boyfriend??? I really hope he was just dared to go up to you guys and say that crap. If not then that gf of his needs to run.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Lol on the gas thing! So cute though. I found out about that arrow thing in the radio!

    And boo on the brick wall blogger. Dump her!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I also know all of the words to every Hannah Montana song. I wish I could say it was because I worked for Radio Disney and had too but I secretly loved it. I was part of her Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus tour and it was like the greatest thing of my early 20s. East Northumberland High was my JAM

    ReplyDelete
  65. I was just howling reading this post (I've also had two drinks...). But that damn blogger thinking she is the first girl with a carry on post idea & your Starbucks experience were my favorites!

  66. BAHAHAHAHA!!! OMG I can't believe that was the creeper's girlfriend!!!! I would have LOVED to hear their conversation when he came back over, lmao
    LOLOLOLOL Whenever I say something at a store or wherever and no one laughs and I'm with Pete I'm always like: "That shit would've fucking KILLED on my blog." lmao I'm an asshole, I know. :)

  69. Ahh the roofie guy! What a creep! And sooo awkward about running into the gf. I'm sure they had a fun conversation later lol

  70. Hopefully you saved that girl with the creepy bf years of pain that night. And why, why, WHY can't all employees go through the same training they give at Chic-fil-A?!?!?!?! That's the one place I've been able to go where the employees are ALWAYS on top of shit AND super nice. There was even a time when they made a mistake I never even would've known about, apologized and gave me a coupon for a free sandwich. Now that's good service, yo.

    ReplyDelete
  71. What is the little arrow? I don't think I even know what that is.

    I could say so much more, but I'll just tell you that I laughed through this entire post. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  72. What arrow? Im going to my car during lunch to search for an arrow. The mystery will kill me.

    Ummmm ... to the roofie guy. What a fucking creep.

    KC is funny haha

    this was the best post ever!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ummmm, yeah, sounds to me like that blogger may be shady. Just sayin'.
    I think I'm the last person on planet Earth to never have stepped in a Starbucks.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ew! That's a creepy story about the guy in the bar. NetGalley never gives me the books I really want either and it pisses me off. I should be more picky so I'm not giving 3 stars to all the crap they send me right away. Haha!

    ReplyDelete

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!
