I Confess - No Picture/Cranky Edition


- I confess: On the same night, my airbag light and maintenance light came on in my car, my satellite crashed (during Bachelor Pad!), my phone screen froze & started making this horrendous clicking sound all.night.long AND my computer got a virus and hardware issues and completely crashed. I'm not a crier but seriously technology, throw a girl a bone…..(or at least a tech-savvy boyfriend)! Thanks god my chi and blow dryer are holding it together.

-I confess: When my computer was crashing, I was on Audrina Patridge's Website....looking for pictures for my blog post…..where a picture of her (in a bikini) was somehow downloaded as my desktop background.....which I then had to awkwardly explain to our IT guy at work who is fixing my computer how it ended up there. I'm fairly certain everyone in the office now thinks I'm a lesbian or have questionable internet activity at the very least. 

-I confess – when our IT guy opened my CD drive…my Nick Lachey “What’s Left of Me” CD popped out…it was pretty much an all-around embarrassing experience.

-I confess I have officially unleashed war on my downstairs neighbor. Whenever he smokes (which is about every 10 minutes- vom!) I can smell it in my living room. I've purchased a plant and smoking time now coincides with watering time....weird.


-I confess, because technology hates me so, I might be MIA from the blog world until Friday-ish if my computer is able to revived at all. 


I’ll keep this short since a post without pics is like a playlist without Jessica Simpson…..and who wants that?!

Wishing Hardware Health to You All!
XO, A

I Confess....Brainchild of Carissa

This is actually really funny because I can relate. So yesterday at work, our IT guy came to my desk and was like, "I don't mean to embarress you, but have you been streaming YOUtube videos?" I was like ummm...."NO!?" Clearly, I was ... Watched the Kardasian wedding recap about 100 times. So, he preceeded to look through my computer only to find that I had like a million applications up (one being blogger)..needless to say, he told me, "don't watch any videos at work or else" ...so embaressed! Ugh ... I need to stop blogging so much and start working!! lol

Have a good day girl! Hope you get your comp fixed soon!

annahita said...

wow. that sounds quite eventful/frustrating! I can't lie though I definitely laughed at the idea of the bikini pic as your background and your Nick Lache CD popping out, hope technology stops hating you [and gross to neighbor smoking, can't you complain?!]

Bachelor Pad ended weird, when he was about to announce whether Jake or Kasey was getting the boot the screen turned black and he said Kasey. Then it forwarded to the Mask guy doing a dance in the pool.

I totally have that CD in my car, my boyfriend HATES it, but I happen to love it.

I hope your computer gets fixed and that the smoke obsessed neighbor drowns a bit.

MJ @ Teaching in Heels said...

Ana MF said...

"I've purchased a plant and smoking time now coincides with watering time....weird." - LOL

Loved your solution!!!!

agroeper said...

I am SO sorry. But yes, thank God for your Chi and Blow Dryer. I don't what I would do if my flat iron broke!

Brianna said...

you kill me. I knew this was gonna be a good post as soon as I saw the No pictures/cranky edition title. I'm sorry everything broke on you! totally lame. And most importantly, I hope you get to watch the rest of Bachelor Pad cuz man, it was a killer. xo

Ashley said...

Fit With Flash said...

hate that ish. good luck with that. : )

Ali said...

Haha!! I LOVE that you bought a plant and are doing that. I sit here right now and smell smoke from someone smoking right below me. I might have to go to the store and invest in a (or a few, couple, or several) plant(s)!

-Ali

Stephanie and Such said...

Keep us posted with this war with neighbor. Because for some reason, they make the best stories! But yuckkk sorry you have to smell that.

Tatiana said...

haha, this is too funny! I would have been a wee bit embarrassed too at the thought someone random person thinking I was a lesbian. But then, I may have played along. Haha.
And I think you should plaster your neighbor's door with "Smoking kills" signs. DO IT!

Young and Fabulous said...

lemme confess first that i totally miss your blog all day when im at work! i haven't attempted to read blogger yet at work #scared hahah and since you always post wicked early I always miss yours..therefore I miss you!! im going to text u tomorrow a pic of my work! ok moving on...

DYING DYING DYING over your audrina fiasco...haha omg i feel for you!! my journalism professor had this program that during class he could lock all of our computers and see whats on our screen. He saw me looking too intently at my screen so he put it up in front of everyone and it happened to be the site I was reading about tiger woods sexts. yikes

this post just makes me want to give u a big old SQUEEZE! i hope you have a better day! :-D MUAH!!

Sandy a la Mode said...

lol i LOVE the CD you were listening to! no shame!

Marian said...

Bahahahaha...nothing wrong with Nick...at least it wasn't 98 Degrees, right;)

Michaela said...

AHHHH. You had such a rough week in the tech world! Why does everything seem to go at once?! And what's a Monday night without Bachelor Pad....YIKES. Not to mention, it went out halfway through...rude.
To sum up, vienna and kasey basically just make you want to punch them through the screen. And Erica...well, she somehow found a princess wand and waved it around a lot. She's so weird.

Come back before Friday...it's so far away!! xo
