guilty pleasures and a week left of work

After leaving the room and returning yesterday, Karen realized a very important fact: when she leaves, I immediately turn on crap TV.  I have no idea when this started, but it's absolutely true -- any season of the Real World or Big Brother, NYC Prep, Gossip Girl, or my personal fave, 90210, and I'm in a state of brain-melting heaven.  I don't often let her see this side of me, even though it doesn't surprise her in the least.  It's one of those guilty pleasures I tend to keep to myself, with a box of Triscuits and a can of pop nearby.  Well, she's kind of stuck with me...  best she knows all this stuff now, before I'm covered in spit-up!

In other news, we only have one week of work left before V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!  (Can we, for a moment, discuss how difficult it is to type in caps, with hyphens?)  In one short week, we will be sitting lakeside, some of us with drinks in hand, soaking in the sun and basking in the non-workishness of it all.  Atwood week is one of my absolute favorite times, and I turn into a child a few days before each visit.  I still remember being so excited about an impending trip that I would routinely throw up in anticipation.  Let's hope that doesn't happen this time.  The day after we get back from vaca, we have our anatomy scan and lunch with the grandparents.  All in all, this is looking like it will be the perfect week, and I'm already riding high on just the idea of it. 

In the nineteenth week, the kitten is now about 6½ inches crown to rump, and is sprouting hair on her head!  The sites all compare her to a mango now, but I don't believe I've ever seen a mango that big.  I tried to google 6.5 inches to get a clip art picture to add to this post, but only found penis size comparisons.  Let's stick with a mango, shall we?  :)


  1. Thanks for posting a picture of the mango and not, um, the other stuff you found. I'm eating.

    Yay for your upcoming vacation! So exciting. Have a blast. And yay for the anatomy scan!

  2. im a total trash tv addict too! :)

    looks like we'll be on vacation the same week, im counting down the days! having the anatomy scan to look forward to afterwards should make re-entry into real life a little less painful. how exciting!!

  3. Thanks for coming by my blog! I'm adding you to my blogroll :)

    First of all, congrats on your pregnancy!!! I'm so looking forward to reading your updates!

    I love all of those shows you listed (and probably more than those listed...I'm a Reality TV Whore). The good news is I got J hooked on them as well. So she can't judge me anymore LOL.

    Yay on the vacay!
