Some housekeeping...

I feel like I haven't been here to write, write in a very long time. My apologizes for that.

Work has been hectic, and my personal life has been jam-packed with excursions (which I'll never complain about), but hell if I'm not exhausted most of the time. I had to force myself not to get into bed at 8:15 the other night (so I opted to fall asleep on the couch for about an hour instead) (then I got into bed).

The end is in sight, though, which is why I'm here to tell you that I'll be taking next week off - from blogging, vlogging, reading your blogs (probably) (maybe not), and commenting. The reason being is because I'm traveling to NYC for work - leaving tomorrow, and I won't be back until Tuesday night. And prepping for this trips has been crazy, so I couldn't bring myself to schedule any posts ahead of time.

Speaking of vlogging - yay or nay? Should I keep posting them here, or no? I'm going to continue to make them (every Tuesday seems to be working) but if there's not an interest for them here, I won't post them. Give me your feedback!

Oh, and re: the car accident that I "vaguely wrote about" (-Kelsey) yesterday: I'm fine. I was hit on my way to work Monday morning. The back bumper on my car is banged up, and something is going on with the exhaust, but I'm okay. More annoyed than anything else.

So, I think that's it. You can still find me on Twitter, and maybe Instagram, but see you back here in a week? Sound good? Great. Break!

Alissa Lately

Flat Paul is straight busted.

{I was called out for not doing one of these last week, so here we go...}

reading // Still reading Harry Potter! I'm about halfway through book #4. I was determined to get them all re-read before Halloween, but I don't think that's going to happen. Maybe Thanksgiving?

writing // Lists on lists on lists.

listening // My dear friend Kate made me a Frank Turner anthology, and I've been listening to nothing but that (and the Noah and the Whale CD she gave me as well) for the past week and a half.

thinking // That I ain't seen the sun shine in 3 damn days (- Kid Rock). But, really, it's been raining all week.

smelling // The coffee I just made.

wishing // I had a bag of sour gummy worms. The two bags I ate last weekend were apparently not enough to satisfy my craving.

hoping // That my car gets fixed soon. Remember when I was in a car accident on Monday?

wearing // Black pants, turquoise shirt, and my favorite black and white sweater.

loving // The records I bought last weekend. I went to a place in Bennington, VT that sells "gently used" records for $1. ONE DOLLAR! It was very exciting, and I got a little carried away.

wanting // Someone to come help me get this couch out of my basement. Oh, you're willing to fly across the county to help? Great, thanks.

needing //  To do laundry, like, desperately.

feeling // Sinus pressure - yay! If I'm sick while I'm NYC for work this weekend/next week, I'll be really, really angry.

clicking // Through blogs while I drink my coffee.

Vlog Tuesday: Local news anchors are celebrities, right?

Last Friday, Kelsey, Kate, and I went over to Emily's house to hang out, and to see her baby, Elle (who also happen's to be Kate's niece) (because Emily is married to one of Kate's brothers) (follow that?). We consumed a bunch of snacks (including a bag of snacks that I *insisted* on purchasing for the 40 minute car ride to Emily's house) along with a ton of wine, and some hard cider.

What you're about to watch is the product of all of that.

A'ing some Qs

Thanks to everyone who answered these questions last week! Look for more posts like that in the future.

1. Since every blogger loves to say they are twenty-something, how old are you, really?

I think I've said it enough times over the past month or so - I'm 28. And 28 means you'll have a hangover after drinking only 4 beers. Watch out.

2. If you could have a band play a private show for you and your friends, what band would you choose?

This is a hard question for me, and I came up with it! I know y'all probably expect me to say The Avett Brothers, but I don't know...jk, I'd definitely choose them. I'm not stupid.

3. What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Hard ice cream - mint chocolate chip. Soft ice cream - chocolate and vanilla twist, with rainbow sprinkles. Yes, sprinkles.

4. How old were you when you found out Santa wasn't real? How did you find out?

I wrote about that here. ~~SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT~~

5. What's the first blog you ever read religiously?

Chelsea Talks Smack. She blogs next to never now, which is incredibly depressing, but I still suggest that you read some of her older posts. Start with this one. Then this.
