Five Thing Friday

Well, I have been keeping with the theme of not posting anything this week until the middle of the afternoon. Go me. I'm sure this is one of those terrible blogger no nos. NEVER BLOG AFTER 3pm! OMG!!!

Well, it's Friday and I have a belly full of meatballs, so all is good in the world. I even had some one on ones today and spread some love. I WAS going to order some cookies from Insomniac Cookies but they stop delivering a mile away from my office. I could go to the ghetto at the edge of their deliver area and wait for them, but I won't. Not that there's anything wrong with the ghetto. heck, they can get cookies delivered and I can't.

So, 5 thing that are going on this week.

Creeper Job Seeker Guy - I posted an open position on LinkedIn and this guy InMailed me. It was fine and I sent his info to the recruiter. Here's the creepy part. HE CALLED MY DESK. Someone, somewhere gave him my work number and he called me. I don't even know my work phone number. I haven't written it down anywhere or put it on the interwebs. The only place I've distributed it was in the fishbowl for free bagels at Breuggers. So unless he pulled my card out of the bagel drawing, I have no idea how he found me. I'm a little freaked out and needless to say, I won't be offering him an interview.

The cleaning lady follows me and closes the bathroom when I really have to pee. - EVERY DAMN DAY. I swear she follows me and knows some secret cleaning lady short-cut that lets her enter the bathroom seconds before I do. The I have to do the pee dance down the hallway to the other bathroom.

My Dog still hates you - Sorry folks, I know she's cute but Cleo doesn't like you. We were in the car Sunday after the dog park and Kev and I stopped for bagels. I was waiting for the lady in the car next to me to get into her car. She saw Cleo and started baby-talking to her. "Ooooo look at the baby, I didn't know you had a baby in the backseat." (The door was closed and the window rolled up) and I heard her start to growl. Then Cleo gave her best Cujo imitation. The lady jumped back and nearly peed herself. Kev and I apologized, she's just really protective. (and apparently hates baby talk)

Pumpkin Spice is the new Christmas carol. Every year my mom would complain that they would put out the Christmas stuff earlier and earlier. Instead of being after Thanksgiving, you would get Christmas carols and decorations the first week of November. Basically everything after Halloween is fair game for Christmas. Now we're getting pumpkin spice everything earlier and earlier. Starbucks started with the PSL this week and this morning I went to Dunkin Donuts for my coffee and was surprised to see that all the pumpkin was out. Well, not really, but I swear we used to enjoy the summer through Labor Day, THEN all things pumpkin came out. I love fall as much as the next gal but come on now.

Salted Caramel Blue Diamond Almonds - EAT THESE! EAT ALL OF THESE. I stopped at Target Monday and picked these up along with some other work snacks. They're seriously amazing and I can't stop eating them. Do yourself a favor and get some!

If you have it off, enjoy your long weekend! I know I will!
