It’s been a long time since I’ve done a Thursday Awkward and Awesome post a la’ The Daybook! Let’s get right to it, shall we?


– A recent Words with Friends game on the ol’ iPhone. I had the first move, and played the word murder. And then my opponent quit.

– The old guy behind me in line at the grocery store who told me I had “mischievous eyes” after commenting on each of the things I unloaded from my cart. You got me, sir. Nothing says “wild child” like a gallon of skim milk, piles of produce, a couple frozen pizzas, and Ben & Jerry’s. Rawrrr… 

– Forgetting that I had to change our window displays when I got dressed in the morning, then trying to shuffle around in a dress and oh-so-carefully move things around so as not to flash all of downtown main street.

– And forgetting to announce a winner for the jcpenney giveaway! Tomorrow, I promise.

– Realizing just how forgetful I am lately.


The Coffee House channel on Sirius XM.

– Not being the palest girl in Florida now that I’ve discovered the awesomeness that is Jergens Natural Glow. I loathe self-tanner — the smell, the zebra stripes, the oompa-loompa-meets-Snookie skin — but this stuff is a wonder lotion! The smell isn’t fantastic, but it gives you a really natural color gradually and doesn’t streak or leave your knees and elbows five shades darker than the rest of your body. Good stuff.

– GROUPON! We just ran one for the shop this week, and now I’m hooked. If you’re a small business that offers a product or service, I recommend it for bringing in a slew of new customers and getting your name out. Plus, their customer service staff is pretty stellar.

Honey Badgers. And Terra for always leading me to these little web gems on Twitter.
