Moving is for the Birds — Says Everyone
Posted by Bethaney - Tagged , ,

“When I was a kid my parents moved a lot, but I always found them.” ― Rodney Dangerfield To relay just how unhappy I am about moving, I’ve put together a collection of photos why other people hate moving. Because, you know, it sucks. Who wants to pack up everything they own, haul it in boxes, and then unpack it again. Up stairs?! Where is my magic wand when I need it? Or at the very least, Hermione’s fit-everything-in-the-universe bag. I’ll only whine until the end of this post – probably – promise.

Things California Has that Kansas Doesn’t
Posted by Bethaney - Tagged , ,

Last week I spent some time on the West Coast, my second stint in California. Though to be fair, the original voyage was taken when I was in the 8th grade and it was cold the entire time I was there. So it really only kind of counts. But to celebrate my return to Kansas — or rather to long for the vacation that ended too soon — I’ve put together a compilation of differences between the two locations. One which is home, and one which hosts an infinite amount of beach partying. (Why did I come home again?) Which brings us to the first difference: Beaches Infinite Tats Seriously, they’re like everywhere. My Sister … and Her Awesome Friends If I had a dollar for every time I was asked if we were twins, I would have made roughly $32 this trip. Considering I’m 4.5 years older, I thank […]

The Best-Ever Comedians: People I Love to Laugh At/With
Posted by Bethaney - Tagged , , , ,

It’s time for another round of picture posts! Also known as favorite things, photo edition, and I’m-too-lazy-to-write-a-blog-today-and-need-a-break-with-some-photos. Either way, you’re welcome. Today, we’re going to take a look at some of my favorite comedians. You know, because I love laughing. And if you don’t, you are either 1) wrong, or 2) a ridiculous person. Once I went on a date with a guy, who, five minutes in told me he “didn’t really like comedies.” Which basically translated to, “This is our first and last date.” He later sealed the lack of compatibility by not walking me to my car in an extreme blizzard. Which actually, could pass for an ok romcom opener itself. But let’s leave it to the pros. In photo form, here are some of the best jokesters ever known to mankind. Tina Fey In case you didn’t already know, I love Tina Fey. She is a glorious, […]

Things I’d Rather be Doing than Watching March Madness
Posted by Bethaney - Tagged , , , ,

It’s that time of year again, where the entire country goes nuts for basketball, and all I want to do is boycott ESPN. Whether I’m hearing about brackets, college sports, or what team was or wasn’t supposed to beat another – I couldn’t care less. It’s semi OK when my team is winning (they usually aren’t), but otherwise, there’s far better ways I could be spending my time. For instance: Consuming Large Amounts of Sriracha Catching up with Some Shows Deleting all My Spam Emails … and Comments Reading NCIS Synopses to Catch Obscure References Going on the Longest of Walks     Planning My Next Vacation Ranking Teas from Delicious to Irish Breakfast

Things to Make the Doldrums of Winter Much Better
Posted by Bethaney - Tagged , , ,

It’s the homestretch of winter — we’ve gotten approximately 14 inches of snow in the past month. Temperatures are in the teens and negatives with wind chills. And doing anything outside other than shoveling snow and warming up the car seems practically impossible, lest you want your nostrils to freeze. Sure, we’ve gotten a short tease of nice weather, but we also know it’s a lie. Quit tempting us already! So, during the worst part of the winter — the time when you can only clean the house so many times — here’s a few things that make life better. Pizza Coupons   What makes a day better than greasy goodness purchased at half the price? Keep those emails coming, Papa John’s. Going Somewhere Where Everybody Knows your Name You know you want to. The Comfiest Pair of Sweatpants you Can Find Not the ones on the right; they’re over […]

Mugs I Want to Drink From in 2014
Posted by Bethaney - Tagged , , ,

Because New Year’s resolutions are stupid — announcing them anyway, why can’t we better ourselves in private? — I’ve invented an entirely new type of aspiration. One that outlines my probably biggest hobby (drinking tea), and the format it will be kept warm. Though I have a growingly large and amazing collection (thanks friends, family, and significant other), one can simply not stop trying new things. If your freezer was full of pizzas would you still not order out when receiving a timely coupon? Would you not go see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire a second time just because it’s leaving theaters soon? Of course not, because the reasoning is ridiculous and creates a lack of having fun. Life is a gift and it’s time to grab it by the mug. To date, I’ve used gigantic coffee cups, ceramic handmade ones, tinies, and my standby favorites. (Cat themed, Edward Gorey, floral, […]
