So PartyDogUSA and I have a really exciting New Years Eve planned. Instead of going out to a fancy dinner and dressing up, we are opting to stay inside, in our pj’s while I serve some classy smashed potato soup that I shall be making in the crockpot this afternoon. PartyDogUSA will attempt to stay up until midnight while I am long gone on the couch until 11:55 when he will wake me up to watch the ball drop and then we go to bed. It’s hard being party animals.
Since I’m still coughing every 5 seconds and blowing green stuff out of my nose (yum!) I will once again go to the gym and basically walk. I’m not complaining (that much) I am happy to move even if it’s just really easy but man do I miss running. And I’m seriously dying to run now that I got one of these bad boys for Christmas:
H O L L A. I am officially BALLIN. Now if the weather in Chicago would go back to being warm and I stopped producing green snot I could actually use my new running toy. Until then I’ll just walk alongside the other people at the gym pretending to workout.
That’s all the nonsense I have for now!

As I mentioned yesterday today was PartyDogUSA’s birthday! He turned 16 today! Actually he turned 25 but we like to joke that he turned 15 last year and 16 this year. So we started the day off right with some balloons delivered from his Mother from California and then we were off to the DMV to get his drivers license!
PartyDogUSA was feeling festive so he let me go to the gym today to
workout walk. He of course only let me go for exactly 30 minutes and watched me the entire time in the mirror while he was on the treadmill (just like everyone else at the gym) while I didn’t even break a sweat on the elliptical. Though I think I burned about 7 calories, it felt great to move around a bit.
So instead of spending the entire day at home soaking in our germ-infested apartment, I decided to take my sickness on the road and infect everyone at the movie theater, and at the Weber Grill restaurant. PartyDogUSA was feeling really sweet and said he didn’t want me to cook his birthday meal as I might contaminate it with my germs. He’s such a charmer.
And now on to something completely unrelated. In a previous post I went over some of my incredible Christmas presents like these J.Bieb inspired gifts:
But I did forget to mention the beautiful slippers my mother got me that I have yet to take off my feet.
You like my pink skull socks? Those were another great gift from a previous year. Clearly people know how punk-rock I am.
That’s all the nonsense I have for now!
What was your favorite gift from this holiday season?

I sincerely apologize for my lack of posts yesterday and this morning. Due to my family getting me sick, I was in no mood to blog. But after a call from my mother basically begging me to post, here I am, looking as fresh as ever!
I never get sick. I’m one of those people who gets sick maybe 2 times a year and when I do get sick, I get sick. This couldn’t be better timing either to get sick after I have done nothing but sit in a car for the past 5 days, to sit around yet again on my butt for another day is perfect. My body LOVES me right now. Good news is I have read 2 books today so at least my mind is getting exercise.
I tried to go to the gym but someone named PartyDogUSA wouldn’t let me and it’s probably better he didn’t because I get winded walking from the couch to the bathroom. Have I mentioned how attractive I look? I look just like this:
I haven’t run, let alone worked out since Sunday and am feeling it. Hopefully I can at least do something small at the gym tomorrow, but since it’s PartyDogUSA’s birthday, I guess I should listen to him to avoid ruining his birthday. He did manage to come up with a few winning new pet-names on our drive home yesterday:
- Snake fingers
- Flap jack tony
- Miss Coughington
He’s so talented. That’s all the nonsense I have for now!

I’m fairly certain that every single person in the state of Maryland is sick. Maryland should be under quarantine really. I come home, everyone in my family is sick, go out everyone on the street is hacking, blowing their nose and looking miserable. It’s a wonderful sight.
As JT and I were driving home from Pennsylvania yesterday I thought to myself, “Hey! I did it! I didn’t get sick, I beat the system and I’m gonna stick it to the man.” About 5 minutes later I started coughing. This morning I woke up with no voice, which really is shame because I have lots of important things to say. And, I also have important pictures like this one to take:
So my last day in Maryland will be spent on the couch with mom and this little monster I adore so much:
I’m definitely not complaining, this sounds like the perfect day to me except for the whole being sick thing. That’s all the nonsense I have for now!
