Grinds My Gears, And One That Doesn't

A little background about the captain operating this ship...

I started this blog in 2010. I stopped after just a few months because I felt I had pigeon holed myself into just blogging only about sports. So I quit and started another stupid blog that was just a collection of my random thoughts and polyvore collages. That wasn't me at all. 

So I came back a couple of months ago. 
But I want to stay here, in your google reader.

 I really don't want to quit again, so I may go one of my rants, or post my stupid polyvore collages or put some graphic design inspiration on here. 
Like I said here I'm not 100% on sports every single moment of my life. Just 98.5%.

Hence my inspiration for Grinds my Gears and One that Doesn't...

1. DIY on Pinterest

If I ever want to immediately feel bad about myself all I have to do is jump on Pinterest and search, cooking, baking, DIY or LC's The Beauty Dept. 

The good Lord, bless his heart, gave me hand eye coordination like you wouldn't believe. 
If I drop my phone, I can catch it right before it hits the ground.
Makes me feel like a Ninja, or at least Spiderman. 

He did not give me any home economics skills at all. 

Example: I wanted to make these. It is a cookie, with icing, a crushed marshmellow for the head and all you have to do to decorate it is be able to do a somewhat straight line and make a dot.

Easy. 

Not for me. 
Nailed It.




2. Person is texting, person is texting, person is texting

Person is texting, person is texting, person is texting

Person is texting, person is texting, person is texting

Person is texting, person is texting, person is texting

Person says: What's up?

3. In mad men, when they sip straight whisky, bourbon, scotch
like it's easy. 
I know darn well you don't find that easy or tasty, Peggy, so stop fronting. 

Nailed it. 


What doesn't grind my gears? When a kid gets pelted in the back with a football on TV


Thanks for stopping by,
but mainly, stay classy.

    1. I know, not sure why "shooters" are considered girly. Taste buds are taste buds, they should be standard in men and women.

  2. Girl, those cookies look delicious. I'd absolutely take them to a family party. Tells you a lot about MY family... And straight whiskey is painful. You know they're drinking iced tea on the rocls and calling it scotch. Fakers!

    1. I thought adding holiday flaire to the shot glass may make it taste better. It didn't.

  4. I tried to make those cookies with my nieces... the four year old was 10x better than me. You're not alone.

  5. you are maybe my new favorite person in the whole wide world. it helps you used to live in lexington and love sports. but. hey, I HATE DIY. It's not for me. I'm bad at it. I am not a domestic engineer. I'm better at drinking beer and watching basketball. It's a science.
