It’s Monday and I’m coming off of a great weekend. Since I’m in such a great mood, and being random makes me happy, here’s a little randomness to start your week.
I’ll start the random musings off with a funny story since I’m sure some of you have a case of the Mondays.
1. That Moment I Became Famous Before My Brother
Last week Ryan was at Hershey’s Annual Conference when he called me randomly in the afternoon. Finding it odd, I answered, and was then told the funniest thing ever. During one of the presentations, Hershey discussed what consumers think of their products via social media (FB, Twitter, IG). So my brother is watching a presentation about consumers feelings, and as he said, “so I’m just sitting there watching and then you pop up on the screen, and I’m like, oh, hey it’s, Allie… WAIT.. that’s ALLIE! I’ve never even made it into a presentation and you just beat me!” If you remember correctly, Ryan brought home a big bag of Brookside, we’re talking economy sized. I had 3 shirts to choose from, and wore my “indoors only” shirt with Billy Currington’s face on the front.
Oh yes, that’s the picture that thousands of Hershey employees saw. I used ONE hashtag on IG with this picture and somehow made it into Hershey’s presentation. That’s how powerful social media is. I still feel violated that this shirt has been shown to the public now. I also wish my thumb wasn’t so freakishly pointed out.
2. New Office
I finally moved into my new office. It took me days because I really love my old office, but, you really can’t beat this view.
I’m sure I won’t get any work done because I’ll be too busy looking out the window.
3. Over Budget for Alcohol & Bars
Roughly 1 year ago I signed up with Mint.com, a website that allows you to link your bank and credit card accounts while also creating budgets for different expenses. I usually ignore and delete the emails, but I laughed when the title of yesterday’s email said I exceeded my alcohol budget.
$1 over. Also, $30 for a month seems low. I guess Mark was right when he told me I was stingy Friday night. I need to just carry around nips.
4. How to One Up Someone
When in doubt, make up the fact that you’re debating, and use the following line. Apparently, it works.
I wish I could edit his last response. Grammatical errors drive me insane. Pet peeve #2.
5. 2 Song Obsession
I’m obsessed with 2 songs. I sang them for a solid 40 minutes on repeat Saturday night while getting ready. My neighbor annoys me with his Call of Duty, so I can only hope I annoyed him with my awful singing.
Also, New Kids on the Block. I love this. Addicted. New ring tone?
That’s pretty much how I was dancing and singing in my apartment and in da club Saturday night.
I have to stop at 5 because I have this thing with odd numbers. This morning I got in a hot 3.5 mile run before working my shoulders. The gym’s air conditioner is still broken, so I was practically drowning in sweat while running next to Carl Winslow’s twin.
P.S., I’m hours away from meeting Baby Lucas, which means I’m also hours away from having baby fever and beginning operation “find a man to give me a baby.” Anyone know where Bradley Cooper is today???
