time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping

You know how they say time flies when you're having fun? I think that's stupid because time flies when you're not having fun, too. Like, I can't believe it's Wednesday already but I've spent most of this week working and that's not fun, right? I mean, maybe your job is fun but the only time my job is fun is when someone brings in free food. Or when the pressures of the day because JUST TOO MUCH and we all start throwing stuff at each other, not that that ever happens because that's not appropriate workplace behavior and I definitely don't condone it but why would they give everyone little stress balls if they didn't want us to throw them at each other? Huh?

This is not to say I haven't been having fun because OH, have I been having fun OH YES I HAVE. Last Thursday, Joe and I saw Frightened Rabbit and they blew my mind. And my eardrums. What? Haha, funny joke, Jennie. Anyway. There were two opening bands and the first one was AWFUL. I mean, they sucked major donkey balls. Like the biggest donkey balls ever. I forget their name because I've tried to block out that experience. The second band was good and Frightened Rabbit was...well, I already mentioned the mind-blowingness so I'll just stop there. I will just say that I haven't been able to stop listening to them since we saw them, such is the power of the adorable Glasgow accent.

We also saw Iron Man 2, which I suppose I liked, not having gone into it with any expectations other than Robert Downey Jr. is beautiful and I'd probably get to see him shirtless at some point. WHICH I DID. The most confusing part of the movie was in the filler beforehand, when Zachary Levi sang a song with Katherine McPhee. I thought maybe I was hallucinating the whole thing, but Abigail assures me that it's real and that Chuck just really likes singing. To which I say: go Chuck.

On Saturday, we went to a wedding cake/cupcake tasting and I ate so many cupcakes that I felt sort of ill the rest of the day, and sugar-crashed later that afternoon watching Walk the Line and woke up from my nap singing Ring of Fire, which actually isn't that unusual for me. But the cupcakes were delicious and I think we're going to have them make a million cupcakes for our reception and wouldn't you know it? They're the first cake place we went. It's a little place called Bombshell Bakeshop, which actually is located primarily on the internet and I find that somewhat fitting. Plus also, the cupcakes were so good that I never wanted to stop eating them, even if my stomach esploded.

And now for my most exciting news: I GOT A NEW BIKE. It looks sort of like Pee-wee's bike, a fact which made me jump up and down in the store, clapping my hands in excitement while Joe pretended he didn't know me.

Oh look, here's a picture:
new bike
I don't know what to name her. I do know that I love her. Last night, Joe and I went out to the garage and I gave her a hug and Joe pretended not to know me again. That happens a lot.

I agree about time - particularly when I saw that it was halfway through May already, and I do not even know where the whole first half of my year went.

I'm glad you found good cupcakes - we've got a place here that charges $6 a piece (for cupcakes!) and they taste worse than the ones I get at Market Basket (6 for $3.50). But if yours were that yummy, then I'm sure they're perfect for the wedding.

You can call me, 'Sir' said...

I didn't even know they made bikes that looked like that anymore.

Red bicycles are the best. Red anything is the best.

My bike got impounded by the po-po. Long story.

Jennie said...

NTE, $6 cupcakes?! They would have to be the best cupcakes ever made to get me to spend $6. Unless I really needed a sugar fix or something.

Sir, me neither, which is why I squealed when I found it. I am so superficial that the only way to get me to ride a bike is if I think it's pretty.

Ashley, I just...I'm gonna need to hear this story.

did scott hutchinson sing "poke" all by himself during the encore? when i saw them the first time he did. without a microphone. and i'm not gonna lie, i totally wanted to make out with him.

Jennie said...

Yes! He did and it was awesome. Except for all the drunk people trying to clap and sing along, and the other drunk people shooshing those drunk people.

#1 I thought Frigtened Rabbit was something you named a rabbit in your neighborhood. It's something you would do.
#2 That bike makes me want to overcome my fear of bikes because I want one.

Jennie said...

You should get one! We would be bike twinsies!

The bike is fabulous, and I have heard awesome things about Bombshell Bakeshop (which I believe used to be KT's Kitchen?).
