Awkward and Awesome Thursday

September 29, 2011

It's time for another installment of Awkward and Awesome Thursday. Join Sydney at The Daybook for more awesomeness.

- Trying to carry on a conversation with a neighbor while holding a bag of your dog's poo. There really is no classy way to do this...I've tried.

- Also, let's add waving hello to someone with the poo bag hand.

- The TSA guy flirting with me while I'm going through the scary x-ray screening thing. Nothing says "hot" like me with my hands in the air while someone x-rays every last bit of me. Gives me the creeps to just think about it.

- People you meet at work events who then want to be your friend on facebook. Um, no thank you, creepy guy. 

- My high school reunion. This weekend. I'm not going. But still awkward. I'm old.

- A few nights ago while I was making breakfast sausage for dinner the husband asked me what was wrong. Me: "Well, I wanted bacon, but we had this sausage that was already opened so I'm making that instead. But now I still want the bacon." The husband: "Why don't you just make both?" Me: "That's why I love you."

- Three-day work weeks. Highly recommend.

- All my TV shows are back for  fall! My DVR is full and happy. And so am I.

- Co-workers planking on my desk while I'm out of town. And documenting it for me. Love!

  1. haha I love all these, too funny. My high school reunion was last weekend! I didn't go either-- too long of a drive to justify it! We are old!!

  2. I agree with each and every one of those!! And I didn't go to my reunion a couple of years ago either but it still makes me feel old!!

  3. Totally awkward about the dog poo situation... I can totally relate haha. Thanks for the laughs this morning :)

  4. I didn't go to my high school reunion either. Totally awkward. Thanks for the laugh this morning! :)

  5. I am dyyyyying over the poop bag. Why do dogs always poop at the beginning of the walk, rather than the end?

    PLEASE post the plank pics. Hilarious.

    I love this post.

  6. True story: A few weeks ago, we're at dinner with my parents... my dad says, "Sara, when is your 10 year? It should be coming up pretty soon... you should go!"

    Um Dad, it was last year. . . .

  7. I ended up really enjoying myself at my 10 year reunion. My advice? Have a glass of wine or two before you go, it helps to calm the nerves! I hope you have fun at yours!

  8. LOVE this post... I'm still laughing at the "awkward" section! :) Have a great week!

  9. PLease post the planking picture! And...waving with the poo bag made me laugh!

  10. I hear ya on the poop bags...

    what is with this planking buisness?

  11. the dog poop awkwardness? Oh yeah that happens to me EVERY time. So awkward and I can't seem to find a way to make it any LESS awkward.

  12. How about getting smacked in the face with a poop bag by my lovely's that for awkward? HAHA this totally happened. jokingly. Yes, he got it back. TWICE.

  13. I looove three day work weeks!!

    I can't wait to see what people are like at my high school reunion.

  14. So . . . your life sounds super fun! :-) And you remind me of one of my friends! Funny things always happen to here. . . like waving with the poo bag! :-) haha!

  15. I haven't been to any of my high school reunions -- and I'm older! Glad you had a fun/productive Cali trip. Our DVR is so happy too -- Project Runway, Biggest Loser, Survivor, Modern Family, new Top Chef soon. Yay!

  16. You are hilarious!! Lol I love the part about holding the dog poo, so true!! Definitley an awkward part of life!
    Love your blog, keep it up!


  17. Some really great ones!! Love the co-workers planking on your desk :)

  18. ugh, I hate work people friending you on facebook. It's awkward to be friends with them and awkward to deny the request. No fun. And a big "YAY" for a full DVR. Makes me happy!

  19. I love that your co-workers planked while you were away! how funny! my DVR is full too.. love.

  20. Hysterical. Thank you for putting a big smile on my face! I totally agree with the poo bag thing...especially if you're talking to someone good looking.
