Lazy Misery

I’ve been a little quiet on the blog front lately, mostly because I’ve had a few miserable weeks and weekends which make me feel no-so-social. Nothing bad has happened. I just feel like I’ve wasted a lot of time lately but have no motivation to do anything about it. The more time I waste, the more miserable I am and the more miserable I am, the less I do anything about it. I guess I’m just prone to lazy misery.

Since no one wants to hear about my misery, I thought I’d talk about the things that are making me happy lately. It’s not much, so don’t get too excited. I’ll try not to make it all about food and booze since we know that’s the only thing that makes me truly happy.

1. I got a new pair of  Old Navy running shorts which I’m sure made me run a new fast mile of 7:32. 7:32!

I know it’s only one mile but still, I never thought I would be capable of running one that fast. Also, I only partially felt like dying during the run instead of my normal full-on death wish with sobbing. It’s the little things.

2.  Hubs and I ordered a half dessert and got this.

Thank you, America, for your disgusting glutinous ways. I don’t care what anyone says about you, you’re alright.

3. Strawberry fields martinis at noon. (Strawberry vodka, Triple Sec., mint, lime, and muddled strawberries.)

Hubs took me to this awesome little hippie-like brunch place called Maxine’s on Shine. He’s been wanting to take me there since he and another friend discovered it while back. Let me just say, we do not have cute brunch places in Orlando. We have the Olive Garden and Arby’s, so this place is definitely a find.

They had really good food, amazing customer service, live folk music, and mimosas served in mason jars so big they’d make the producers of Cougar Town proud. I don’t normally drink during the day (or on weekdays) because I find drinking way too fun to stop once I start, but the drinks at Maxine’s sounded so good I had to get one (after another).

4. I saw the new Star Trek last night.

I loved it (and no, I’m not a Trekkie). The entire cast is just so good. Everyone fits their character perfectly. I’m even growing a little sweet on Chris Pine. I might have to see that movie with him and Reese Witherspoon after all. The only thing that bothered me about the movie were his eyebrows. I just cannot deal with those. I mean, surely someone has talked to him about that. It’s like they are invading his face.

But still, he’s cute, so I’m doing my best to look past the browsie wowsies.

5. Pants working hard on maintaining her double chin.

That fluffy face always puts a smile on mine.

Alright, here’s to having some less miserable weeks and weekends.

High Five

  1. Good job blogging. I hope you didn’t let FF have more than a bite of that dessert. Although, it was pretty nice of him to take you to brunch, so I guess 2 bites are in order.

  2. I saw Star Trek this weekend, too, and could not stop staring at his eyebrows … and his freakishly blue eyes. Are they contacts? Are they using PhotoShop for his scenes to increase the saturation? Is he not human? I swear I didn’t hear a thing he said in the entire movie b/c I was so focused on his damn eyes and eyebrows. They freaked me out much more than Spock’s oddly realistic looking ears … and bangs. And Kahn (aka Sherlock Holmes) has freaking amazing dude hair. Clearly I should have spent more time focused on the movie and less on the hair, but I enjoyed the entire experience!

      At least we took the important things with us from the movie. I even said something to Fabian during the movie about his eyebrows and he was like, “eh.” Men just don’t understand.

    I’m familiar with the lazy/boring status. Comes and stays.
    Wish it would go. I guess that’s why I eat all day.

  4. How have I never noticed CP’s eyebrows before?? Now I’ll never look at him the same way again! And yes, do seen the movie with him and Reese…if for no other reason than to see Bane…er…Tom Hardy!

    Hope you cheer up soon!

    Dude I saw that pic of the dessert on Facebook or Instagram and literally stopped in my tracks.

    I hear ya on the lack of motivation thing. It happens. I’ve learned to not hate myself for it or I will never get out of the seemingly endless cycle. Sit back, relax, and accept it for what it is. Life is cyclical. It’ll pass.

    And Pants…. never stop posting pics of Pants.

  6. I love the IT Crowd, seeing that clip makes me want to rewatch it again it is the funniest!

    I love Old Navy shorts, my boyfriend and I went to Hawaii in January and I stocked up on lots of Old Navy fitness gear it is so cheap compared to Australia and such good quality. When we were there I couldn’t get over the food serving sizes. When we went to Denny’s they asked us if we wanted dessert at breakfast. At breakfast! I agree with you, America you are after my own glutinous heart 🙂

    I’m sorry you’ve had some miserable times. If it makes you feel any better, you’re not alone. I had to leave California to come back to Crapville, NY with its shitty 39 degree temperature and that just sent me full on into a downward spiral of despair and a continuous state of hatred for everything. I’m in a “f*ck everything and eat all the chocolate!” mode.
    Damn, girl! 7:32 is flying!! That is awesome!
    I would shed a few tears over that dessert. Wow!

    • Paula

      I know! Now if I can only do 12 more of them in a row, I will be set for my next race. It’s May, Crapville has to be getting warmer soon, right?

    You say Olive Garden like it’s a bad thing.

    Wow, that’s how unobservant I am. I never would have noticed his eyebrows otherwise!

  10. I was just thinking to myself yesterday that I hadn’t seen a post from you in a while. That dessert looks delicious! If only it wouldn’t go straight to the hips/belly, I’d be all over it!

    You should see the eyebrows in 3-D, they look like they’re coming right at ya! I thought he was dropped dead gorgeous as well as Spock and Khan. I like this re-imagining of the original, awesome casting. Although it is hard to take Scotty seriously because I keep seeing Shaun of the Dead.

  12. He does kind of look like his forehead is being eaten by caterpillars. I loved the movie, but I also was raised by a Trekkie. I’m going to continue drooling over that dessert. I swear all the dessert pictures I see on blogs are making me gain weight.

    • Paula

      Oh man, that’s how much I’m not a trekkie…I spelled it wrong. Gonna have to fix that. I did love Next Generation, so that probably makes me a trekkie in training. A TIT if you will.

  13. I have the same problem with my weekends. I don’t want to spend the whole day doing stuff, so I just laze around, and then I feel guilty for not being productive and it makes me too crabby to do anything. It’s a vicious cycle. We don’t really have good brunch places in SA (that I’ve found anyway) unless you want tacos, then there are plenty. I like tacos, but they aren’t my idea of brunch. And I will now be having nightmares about those eyebrows.
