My week in bullet points: January 31-February 6, 2011

Happy Sunday! Well, not so happy for me. You'll learn why in just a hot second. Here's a recap of my week, just in case you missed it.

  • Chicago got hit by a blizzard. I was trapped in my house from Tuesday night until Friday morning. I spent that time doing homework and watching MSNBC. 
  • Once I was able to get my car out of my driveway and gained the ability to see the world, I was struck down by a major cold. Today has been the worst day of the cold, hence why I am not having a happy Sunday. I was hoping to get out of the house and go somewhere to watch the Super Bowl, but I am instead chained to a box of Kleenex.
  • And then I found a magical unicorn living in my garage. OKAY, not really, but I feel pretty underwhelmed by my week. The blizzard impeded my ability to go out and experience the world and the cold has impeded my ability to give a shit about experiencing the world. Here's to making this coming week count!
Since I'm not doing anything on this Super Bowl Sunday, I want to know how you guys enjoyed your weekends.  Any good snacks? Raucous parties?

"You actually expect me to go out there? I call shenanigans on this whole week!"


  1. I just ate 8 cookies, does that count?

  2. Well, you could have been in Egypt. Perspective love.

  3. To the anonymous commenter: Please don't get me wrong. I did spend my week snowed in, but I also spent it watching the protests in Egypt and feeling so grateful that my biggest problem was some snow. I got to vote for my President and my military hasn't turned on me. It's so absurd and random that I am here and not in Egypt or in Tunisia. So if it seems like I'm complaining about my shitty week, I'm putting the blame for that shitty week mostly on me. I have so many opportunities in my life that most women on this planet could never dream of and I did not nothing with them this week. Just trying to encourage myself to make the most of this life that I have inexplicably been given.

  4. We're all entitled to acknowledge where we are in this place and time. Although not in Egypt, you are somewhere. And honoring it is perspective. ;)

  5. I think it came across more snarky than I meant it....we all need to be reminded sometimes, me included! And, maybe I'm a >little< bit jealous since I don't get snow. :) (Anon before only 'cuz I was on my phone and lazy. :p. Love reading your blog though.)
