Despite my full-time employment, I still get a little leisure time. I’m going to start sharing things I overhear tourists say, I think you will like it.
Today I heard a grandmother say, “He just photobombed the picture!” Her son was all what??? And she said, “you know, photobomb? When you jump in someone’s photo.”
Grandmas are so hip these days.

When I was looking at my tumblr today I watched Thrift Shop again. It just cracks me up, and it’s catchy and all that fun stuff. I started watching some of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ other videos and came across this. OMFG is this freaking hilarious. Definitely NSFW lyrics, the dancing is…suggestive. 80s dance song vibe and I couldn’t stop laughing the shiz out of this. Sorry if this is Macklemore overload, but be thankful I’m not posting Channing Tatum videos….yet.
As some of you know, I have moved back to lovely San Diego, one of my favorite places on this big blue planet. It’s sunny, it’s warm, it has palm trees, an ocean with dolphins frolicking in the surf…seriously it’s perfect. Laura, Laci and I watched the dolphins surf and jump around for about thirty minutes at sunset a few days ago.
The dolphins were a little camera shy - so if you see a black speck it’s one of three things: a dolphin, bird or surfer. Or perhaps, if your screen is like mine - dirt. Use your imagination!
In other breaking news, I have moved back into my old place - where I lived at before my London jaunt. Things are more or less the same here except for the new house rules, and I’m fully on board.
In other seriously for real breaking news, I went to Trader Joe’s (for the first time in almost five freaking months) and two buck chuck is now $2.49!!! Talk about a bad economy, no longer can a girl get crunk for $2.15 ($1.99 + tax).
I’ve been obsessed with this song lately - apparently so have 62 million other people. Macklemore is from Seattle and went to the same high school at Seelye, which means they are practically bffs. I love the message this song sends. I hope kids these days stop paying $50 for a t-shirt. I already saw a footie pajama pub crawl in PB which is a good sign (??).
I have been wanting to start this little segment for some time now. Really Will Shortz is dedicated to the random New York Times Crossword clues/answers I come across from time to time. I always take a screenshot for my personal musings and now I will share with the entire world. Please don’t judge me for not finishing all of the puzzles, with the exception of Monday’s, they are really hard. Especially Saturday.
As I was completing this puzzle, this was one of the last clues I could finish. I kept thinking, “Ok, this looks like poop. The clue is ‘inside info’, which should be scoop, but poop?” As my letter options dwindled, it became clear, that yes, the NYT crossword answer is poop.
