New year, who dis

I’ve never been one to make a big deal out of New Year’s Eve. Sure, my friends and I have had some awesome parties for it and there was that one time on Bardstown Road, but really, it’s just another day/night for me. I do try to think of a resolution of some sort –Continue reading “New year, who dis”

Sounds familiar

It’s been a minute since I’ve done one of these.. For those who might be new to the party… I am in about three different group texts that I communicate in regularly, with my very best friends. These texts aren’t from them, they’re ones that got submitted to, but they very easily could beContinue reading “Sounds familiar”

Straight (paint)ballin’

When I started thinking about what I wanted to do for my 30th birthday this month, I had so many different ideas. I tossed around doing something for others – doing 30 things for others or something nice for 30 people or maybe just a chill dinner with family. It never once crossed my mindContinue reading “Straight (paint)ballin’”

No future boxing career

Probably one of my biggest fears ever is the fear of getting punched in the face. Anywhere else on my body I feel like I could probably handle it – who am I kidding, I have the lowest threshold for pain in the world – but the possibility of ever being hit in the faceContinue reading “No future boxing career”

One of the best combinations since PB&J

While it’s like 99 percent official that my favorite superhero of all time is Iron Man, there is someone that’s in an awfully close second. Batman. Not the Michael Keaton version or the George Clooney version or Val Kilmer. The Christian Bale one. Dark Knight is, in my opinion, the best superhero movie, ever. Don’tContinue reading “One of the best combinations since PB&J”

Florence and the frigging Machine

I’ll be back this weekend/next week with some more substantial posts, because I know you’ve missed me this week. But I had kiddos to chaperone at Disney World and work to catch up on and OMG I need to finish the last Hunger Games book. So for now, please be content with this. Because IContinue reading “Florence and the frigging Machine”

Jealous, for so many reasons

We’re starting a new feature over here at on-account-of. You can look for it every Friday and it’s under the category called “Wish I’d thought of this.” What’s it all about? I’m glad you asked. See, there are things I see or stories I hear of and a lot of the time I’m like, “Damn.Continue reading “Jealous, for so many reasons”

I want to be this funny

You see Bridesmaids? If you haven’t, you should. Watch SNL last week? If you haven’t, you should. I’m sensing a pattern here. And those two things have someone in common – Melissa McCarthy. Luckily for you, I found her best skit from SNL last weekend and I’m sharing it with you. Absolutely hilarious. Apparently sheContinue reading “I want to be this funny”

What happens when you mix awesome and awesomer

Y’all know I like the Muppets. And OK Go, in addition to doing amazing songs, does amazing videos, as I shared with you here and here. And there’s this movie coming out around Thanksgiving you may have heard a little about, but I’m sure it wasn’t from me…. So perhaps, to get people excited forContinue reading “What happens when you mix awesome and awesomer”
