My little allergy free tree

I was reminded today of how much I despise young college kids. There was a group of them decked in their school gear on the T going to some sporting event (hockey maybe?) and they were obnoxious. Is it necessary to be that loud and high five each other multiple times on a packed train? The correct answer is no, it is not necessary.

My little tree came in. It's super cute.


And it won't make me sneeze. Maybe I should get tiny little presents to put under it! Or maybe I should just go to bed.

A giraffe walks into a bar

Friday night was my ladies night with Lil Anne. We had some wine and watched Batteries Not Included. I love that movie. I wish Jessica Tandy was still around. We ended the night at the Last Drop which is always a treat.


Why not dress up as a giraffe and hit the town? There were also drunken carolers.


I'm sure Derek is heart broken that he missed this.

The elliptical arrived yesterday. My mother wants a treadmill so she gave me the elliptical for free. I just had to pay to move it. It's a nice one too. It even has a built in fan to cool you off if needed.

Last night Derek and I went to Red Bones where I had chicken and waffles. I better get my ass on that elliptical. We also watched the Hamilton Drunk History episode and it was as good as I hoped.

I'm watching A Diva's Christmas Carol right now. I will pretty much watch any version of A Christmas Carol. The ending is so satisfying. Now it's time to get off the computer and go food shopping, do laundry, clean and maybe a little elliptical action.

Commuting fun on the B line

It seems like everyone is announcing that they're pregnant on Facebook so I think it's time I announce something as well. We're happy to announce that we're expecting an elliptical machine to join our family on Saturday. We're so excited to begin this (fitness) journey together.

The B line was a real treat this morning. One guy kept asking at every stop if we were at Downtown Crossing. We were nowhere near Downtown Crossing. Then there was goldfish brain and her boyfriend.

GFB: They were really freaked out.
BF: Why were they really freaked out?
GFB: I never said they were freaked out!
BF: Yes you did, you just said that.
GFB: No I didn't!
BF: Fine, maybe I could hear you because the train's loud.

I heard her, she said it.

Tonight I have a lady date with Lil Anne. Not sure what we'll be doing yet but she better bring me flowers.

Put some fig jam on it

I just bought a small ceramic Christmas tree online that lights up. I miss having a tree just not the hassle of dealing with one. I'm going to put it in the front hall. Maybe I'll get some type of garland too.

I got lunch from Eataly today and I'm sad to report that it was meh. I got the Emiliano sandwich which is prosciutto, mozzarella and arugula. It needed some kind of dressing or condiment on it. Fig jam would have been good. Are you taking notes Mario Batali? The homemade chips were good but it's hard to screw up a potato chip. Next up is to try a crepe.

I talked to my mom on the phone earlier and she told me she was going to a fire extinguisher training at her work. "I'm going for the free snacks." I am my mother's daughter.

Wine about it


If a place is called the Red Lantern I expect red lanterns. The bar area has a nice vibe to it. It's a shame that there was a bad DJ in the corner attempting to scratch while playing lounge music. Not the right type of music for that dude.

Moving on to Post 390.


We came close to closing so it was dead. I'm not complaining.


This fireplace speaks to me. It's says "order a nice glass of red wine". Who am I to argue with an inanimate object?


This was literally one of the best red wines I've ever had. It better be for $14 a glass! I had two glasses because it was that good. Sometimes you have to treat yourself.


Our original plan was to try to check out Eataly but we took one look at the line and noped that idea. The Italian food will still be there when the crowds die down.

And that is all the energy I have to blog tonight.

What's this?

Your favorite idiot blogger did something stupid. I take a medication that helps me not feel like I have to pee every minute. That is not an exaggeration. I literally feel like I have to pee constantly if I don't take this medication. Last night I was pretty sure that I forgot to take it but I wasn't 100% sure. I had two options. 1. I could wait and see if I woke up at 4 a.m. feeling like I'm going to pee my pants or 2. Take a pill and not be able to pee well for twenty some odd hours. I chose option 2 and guess what? I must have taken it twice. Sigh. I might need to be an old lady and get a pill organizer.

I know it's not even December yet but I'm feeling the Christmas spirit. I never know what type of mood I'll be in around Christmas. Am I going to be Ebenezer Scrooge or Jack Skellington discovering Christmas Town?

Me at my goal weight. 
I'm kidding! The skin tone is the right color though.

One thing I don't do is Christmas music. I hate it. It's the same songs every year repeated over and over until I want to hang myself with a string of Christmas lights

Even the hipster watch store is getting into the spirit of the season. I really love the copper colored trees but are they artisanal?

I suppose too much pizza is not really a problem

I love Penguin Pizza but there is one slight problem. The smallest size pizza you can order is a 14 inch which is way too big for a personal pizza, but I can't NOT get the pizza.


Derek wouldn't help me either because he believe pizza needs red sauce. I had to tackle this pizza solo. I ate 3 pieces before I had to call it.

We also played trivia last night and then I got cranky because we were losing. I take trivia very seriously. We were doing really well in the beginning but then we tanked hard. I'm over it now but maybe I should stay away from trivia for a bit.

I went to Fantastic Beasts solo on Friday. It was pretty good. The Harry Potter movies are better but it's a solid addition to the franchise. Eddie Redmayne is great as Newt Scamander. I can't imagine anyone else playing the roll.


 I can't believe the long weekend is almost over! I'm not ready yet. Can I have one more day?
