Ten on Tuesday

Ten on Tuesday: Book hauls, diets, and zombie movies


1. I haven’t linked up for this post in FOREVER. I know everyone loves summer, but it’s when my schedule goes all to pot and I have trouble getting anything done. I like autumn much better. For some reason everything is more balanced and orderly and it’s a lot easier to find time to blog.

2. I’ve been hitting the local Goodwill every week or so and coming home with tons of books from the $1 paperback wall. Some of them are brand-new and untouched. Score for this book lover!

3. I hate it when people come along and try to talk to me while I’m reading at lunch. I’ve only got an hour to get through as many pages as possible, leave me in peace! Sometimes that’s my only reading window all day, which makes it extra aggravating.


4. Emmys fashion: love? Hate? I thought it wasn’t very impressive this year. More on that in a later post.

5. Has anyone watched Orphan Black? Like it, love it, hate it? It looks good but I’m not sure if I should buy the DVDs or not.

6. I’m getting ready to do a 24-day diet cleanse with one of my friends and I’m dreading giving up my coffee. Like, I can’t even explain how much.


7. That GIF reminds me that I need to re-watch Shaun of the Dead. Actually I want to have a zombie movie marathon: Shaun of the Dead, World War Z, 28 Days Later…I just haven’t found the time.

8.True confession: I still have yet to watch Frozen. Am I missing out as much as everyone claims?

9. I hate it when I get a bad case of the giggles at work and have to try to hide them. I’m not very good at it


10. I just celebrated my seven-year anniversary at work. Holy crap, time flies.

Link up your Tuesday 10 with Alyssa here!

    1. I feel more INSPIRED to blog in the fall. It’s just my best time!
    3. That is one of my biggest pet peeves when people bother people they KNOW are on lunch. So rude.
    4. A few good ones! And a few poor choices… I like Zooey in hot pink and hated Lena Dunham (but that’s nothing new).
    6. Yikes. Good luck!
    8. You will be singing Let It Go for days. It’s super cute!
    10. Wow. That’s a long time at one place!
    Glad you linked up!

      Lena NEVER impresses me. I mean, she seems cool enough as a person, but her fashion is just terrible. I’m not loving the new hair, either.

  • Katrin

    1. I love autumn a lot more than summer as well! My favorite season.
    2. Score! :)
    3. I hate that too! Don’t interrupt me.
    4. Can’t wait!
    5. Never heard about it. :(
    6. Good luck with that! What are you allowed to eat/drink? I have never done a cleanse before.
    7. I LOVE Shaun of the Dead!
    8. Have not watched it either so you are not alone!
    9. Me neither!
    10. Congratulations!

      I guess the cleanse involves no red meat, dairy, alcohol, coffee, white flour or sugar, or processed foods (like chips, candy, etc.) The idea is to eat really “clean” and drink lots of water.

  • Erin

    1. Same, I love fall :)
    2. Lucky! I just don’t have that option here, all the charity shop books are in Dutch :(
    3. Oh, yeah that is annoying. Unless its a kitty interrupt in which case it’s cute!
    8. It’s not bad. No where near my favorite Disney movie but still cute.

  • Ms. Attitude

    3. Totally! If only I could make that face when people interrupt me when I’m reading…

    8. Yes, yes you are. :)

    9. I’m not good at hiding the giggles either, but lately there hasn’t been much to giggle about at work.

    Frozen was okay. I just don’t get why everyone likes it so much. it’s just too bad they didn’t add more humor, I would have like it better if they did, didn’t care much for the songs either. but I guess it’s a matter of opinion. I think Tangled is much more fun to watch instead.

    who can hide laughs? when I read on the train, I can’t stop myself from laughing so I don’t. I think it’s good to laugh.

    hope you have a great day.

    I agree with #1, summer can feel a bit unproductive sometimes, I can’t wait for the Fall: more projects, new blog design, etc. I <333333 Orphan Black, it’s sooooooo gooooood.
