What Do I Want To Do Today? Just Walk Away

One of my favorite TV shows is a British comedy called ‘The IT Crowd.”  It’s about a couple of IT guys and their boss, Jen, who work at a large corporation.  I’m not sure it’s actually still on the air, but it is on Netflix streaming so if you like things that are funny and awesome (I can’t imagine you wouldn’t since I know you’ve got such great taste, what with reading this blog and whatnot), then you should check it out.

I’ve been thinking about this scene in particular today:

I’m in the middle of something that I know I should just “walk away” from, but like Moss, despite trying to leave things be, I still manage to screw up and start fires.

I can’t be the only one, right?  This happens to other people, too, doesn’t it?

I tell myself, “JUST WALK AWAY!” I even do the Moss hand gesture for walking away (really, I do), but it still doesn’t work. I still end up in the middle of things because I can’t help myself.  I feel like sometimes I’m the only person who has trouble with this.  Why can’t I just keep my mouth shut?

Am I alone?  Has this happened to you?  Or, if it doesn’t, how do you manage it?  I’d love to know.

 

What Do I Want To Do Today? Brush My Dog’s Teeth

You’ve probably figured out that this blog is called “What Do I Want To Do Today?” implying that the shenanigans I get into are actually things that I want to do.

Like throwing knives, messing up some crawfish, and angering TSA.

Which is why you might be questioning the title of this specific post.

True to the description, though, I was actually excited and wanted to brush my dog’s teeth.

What Do I Want To Do Today? (Honey) Badger You

Since I’ve been badgering and honey badgering everyone about “liking” the Facebook page for my business (Click that link for a surprise!  A surprise of something you totally expect.), I figured I’d continue my Reign of Terror and “promote” the blog contest I started last Thursday.

Guess which one I am.

What Do I Want To Do Today? Fight Off A Cold

Y’all.

I’m sick.

Well, at least I’m in the process of getting sick and I’m trying my best to keep it at bay.

Unlike normal people, I don’t do meds.  Medicine is for the weak.*

It’s the nighttime sniffling sneezing coughing aching stuffy head fever so you can delude yourself that you’re really getting rest medicine

What Do I Want To Do Today? Get Stumped By The Shipping Industry

A couple of months ago I made the mistake of making this for a party:

I say mistake because, while I guess it’s cool looking, it now means I have a 3′ x 5′ piece of “decoration” sitting my house.  Well, actually, I snuck into a friend’s house and left it there. Really.  That’s how tired I was of looking at this thing.

It’s ok, he’s on vacation.  Shh, don’t tell!

What Do I Want To Do Today? Shoot Some Guns!

Since I do most of the birthday, holiday, martini time, etc.. planning in the relationship, the mister plans our anniversary.  It’s so sweet and I appreciate that he really gets into it and that it’s important to him.  He gets so excited he won’t even tell me what he has planned until the day before or sometimes the day of our anniversary.

What Do I Want To Do Today? Make An Announcement

Today I take what I consider to be the first step in my plan of world domination being a business owner.

It’s a very small step, but I’m so excited and proud nonetheless because I’ve (purposefully) taken my time to get here and now that I’ve gotten started, I can’t wait to see where it goes.

So, to everyone who has ever asked me,

“What do you DO all day?”

or said,

“I bet it’s fun not having anything to do and just being able to sit around,”

or insinuated that all I do is drink coffee and eat brunch (really? That’s all you can come up with?), check this out:

(Please note, that you can also check this out if you’ve never asked those questions):

click it, yo.

I know I only have two items so far, but I’ll be rolling out more products as I go along and find my stride.  Also, I’m positive I’ll change up that banner when I can figure out something better. But, I’ve been spending the past year and a half working on prototypes, seeing how they work in the wild (i.e. parties), and figuring out how to put it all together to actually start a business, so clearly I have no problem taking it slow and low.  That is the tempo.

I got so much street cred, you know I gots ta make with the Beastie Boys references.

So, everyone, thanks for checking out my (meager) Etsy site and for reading this blog. I really appreciate it.
