Awkward & Awesome Thursday

As most of you know, this is a regular series on my blog
(although, due to recent events, I haven't posted one in a couple weeks).
For those of you who don't know about the series,
let me just tell ya...
Awkward & Awesome Thursdays are the best!


What did my ex-boyfriend buy his new girlfriend for Christmas?
A pillow pet.
I am, by no means, exaggerating.
If your girlfriend wants a pillow pet for Christmas, 
she might be is too young for you.

Update:  She dumped him.
I offered to regift the pillow pet to one of the kids I used to babysit.

Sitting next to stinky people/awkward sleepers on airplanes.
I mean really, did you not think it was necessary to shower the night before you hopped on a plane?
And is it necessary to sleep with your mouth open?
Just so you know...
if you sleep like this, odds are, the person next to you will take a picture of you while you're asleep...

Please notice that the guy across from us is asleep in the same position.

I was going to put my hand on his leg, but couldn't bring myself to do it. lol

This might be a little TMI, but it's my blog and I'll give TMI if I want to...
Going to the OBGYN.
I've been going for years and it doesn't get any less awkward.
I know you agree with me.

G's new phrase: "shake your booty"
This would have fallen into the awesome category because of it's cuteness,
until she came up to me and spanked my butt and told me to
"shake my booty."

Getting a text from a friend, telling me 
that one of my other ex-boyfriends is expecting his first baby.
Umm...thanks for the update? 
Hope his wife enjoys carrying her cheating, lying, no-good husband's baby.

I've decided that the reason there are so many older, 
married men in my MBA classes is because they're unhappily married 
and class is their escape from their wives.

Girls, while this theory is still in the research stages, 
I have some valid evidence to support the theory:
1.  The guys discuss going to cougar dens
2.  They talk about their "funerals"
3.  They discuss the hotness of the girls in our class and their breast sizes
4.  One of them may have tried to send me inappropriate messages...which is awkward in and of itself 

Too bad foreign guys and married men aren't my type, 
because the MBA Program would have been the perfect place for me to find one!
Good thing I have morals and no desire to be a home-wrecker...


The two jobs I'm currently applying for--
if I get one of them, I'll be ecstatic!

One of my old friends from college decided that he wanted to buy G and J gifts for Christmas 
(since they're foster kids and not used to getting much).  
So, him and some of his friends
(several of whom had never met me)
went shopping and spent a TON of money on the kids.
It was so cute to see the kids all excited to open their presents.
It seriously, warmed my heart.

Pizza dough.
I am probably the only person in the entire world who likes eating pizza dough...
but just so you know, the "just add water" packages are AWESOME! 

No longer fitting my Silver capris that I bought this summer.
While those were expensive jeans, 
it is awesome that they are now too big for me!

Infinity scarves.
Don't you just love them?!

Thrift Store shopping in San Francisco.
I know, it's sad that of all the things I could have been doing in San Fran, 
I was thrift store shopping...
but I found some great stuff!

Naner's (my brother) new job perks.
It's hard to explain, but from what I understand, 
he works for a gold storage/insurance company...?
Anyways, that's irrelevant, 
the point of the story is that he has a private jet and a secondary office in Trump Towers!

Until next time, 
The Intelligent Blonde


  1. You are hysterical! & amazing for being a foster mom! I give so many kudos to people that can do that it is truly amazing! & amazing that your friend did that for the children! Hope your day is fantastic!

  2. Aww thanks Megan! I love having the kids--they're such a blessing (most days ha ha). I hope you have a great day, too!

  3. a pillow pet? for you girlfriend? really?! Oh and going to the OBGYN is always awkward! and wow congrats to your brother and Trump Towers and private jet! crazy!

  4. Miranda--I found it kinda fitting considering she's STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL! ha ha ha. I'm glad I'm not the only who thinks that's awkward...
    I still find it crazy that he got a job like that; I guess all of his hard work is finally paying off. Is it my turn, yet? ha ha
