15 Thing Friday

1. I feel like I’m dying. Hopping off the sugar and carbohydrate cliff has been rough. Delicious food, I hate you.


2. If you love Tard the Grumpy Cat as much as I still do, visit 12 Days of Grumpy Cat Christmas.

3. And if you want MORE kitties: The 30 Most Important Cats of 2012

4. I called and cancelled HBO and Showtime to try and save some money. I realized that for the next two months I will be mostly out of town or completely out of the country. Also, most of my shows won’t even be on. Unfortunately, I didn’t double check when Homeland ends and I thought this past week was the finale. Nope. I’m so mad at myself.

5. Jason Sudeikis is apparently going to marry that evil Olivia Wilde. I hate this damn world we live in. First this, then this, and now this. Just kill me.


6. Is it the end of Pasta? Climate change and its impact on growing wheat. I sure hope the world ends before that dark day.


7. Every time I watch this preview, it moves higher and higher on my MUST WATCH FIRST Christmas movie list.

8. On this day in 2008, former President George W. Bush had a shoe thrown at him.

I never fail to be impressed by his quick reflexes. Not in a thousand years would I have been able to dodge that.

9. My friend Maggie (who just had her second baby) sent me this article on what it’s like to go from one kid to two. I cannot quit laughing. I obviously don’t have kids, but holy hell, why would you want two!!!!

Also, when she sent me that picture, I spent at least three minutes trying to figure out if that was her baby or a baby doll. It’s the real thing.

10. 21 Biggest Jerks of 2012. Be warned, they are truly horrible.

11. I can’t wait to watch the Golden Globes this year

12. It’s going to be 80 degrees this weekend. At least I have other options.


13. 32 Man Candiest Moments of the Year

8. Everything that happened on “True Blood.”

14. Tonight starts the holiday party marathon. I usually get really excited about all the cheese and booze, but I just don’t want it. I can’t have another week of eating like in Dallas, I think I’ll actually have a heart attack and die. I’m not ready to die. I’m so tired of the holidays already, make it stop!

15. Please enjoy this picture my friend sent of her daughter’s friend at his Christmas pageant.

You can tell he really means it by that hardcore Captain Morgan stance.

    OOOO Lawd you know his mommy is proud LOL! or is more like DOH!

  2. Lesley

    I cannot stop laughing at the little boy….and now my co-workers think I’m nuts. Perfect. He is killing the Captain M stance.

  3. That child is my hero.

  4. That post about having 2 kids is the most true thing I’ve ever read.

    • Reese's Runner

      Yeah, you two are in the same awful and sinking boat. Good job on making questionable choices.

      • I apparently hate myself and sleep. I must have hated sleep.

        • Reese's Runner

          Your body must hate you so much. Although, that crying picture of Faith left me gasping for breath in the middle of a meeting on Wednesday. I could not stop laughing.

          • Let’s just hope that we never know the agony of being stuck with just one sparkle slipper on and NO ONE TOE HELP US.

          • Justin

            Hey, Kara. Your blog is the funniest thing I have read in a long long time. I will even say it makes me laugh harder than this blog. I can say that because I’ll just bribe Cely with stuff, then she’ll forget I said this. BUT seriously I DIED laughing the other day..when your little one was throwing a fit for hours over a shoe.

          • Reese's Runner

            This is very rude. I am highly offended. Unless I get a traumatic brain injury, I shall not forget it.

          • Justin

            Remember what I said this morning? Do you want to go to that town? Because if you keep pouting…I’m kidding. Anyway I think you just need to hurt yourself again, it’s always hilarious when you get hurt. I say that with the most love ever. But seriously you are both equally funny. I think her honesty about motherhood is just refreshing and hilarious. Your honesty about food is well enduring.

          • Reese's Runner

            What the hell does “well enduring” mean? And Kara is to not funny. I never laugh at her blog. Ever. She isn’t smart or clever either. Not one bit.

          • Justin

            It means I put up with your constant foodie behavior out of love. It’s like when you listen to me complain about my job for hours, or I send you a 30 second recording of rough composing and ask you what you think. You mostly just say “Oh that’s really good! ” when really it sucks. I’m not saying your constant food pictures suck, because quite frankly you could make a coffee book out of the food photos you take. I’m just saying….I endure them, out of pure love and admiration. It’s kind like how you are now a Packer fan and your family will disown you because you turned your back on Texas’s god’s gift to football…the cowgirls..gosh I mean cowboys.

          • Reese's Runner

            I still maintain that well enduring is not a thing. Maybe you meant “worth enduring”?

          • Justin

            You’re such a smart ass and it pisses me off. I DIDN’T USE PUNCTUATION PROPERLY, MY BAD. Keep it up Dr Smart Ass.

          • Reese's Runner

            How exactly would punctuation fix that?

          • Justin

            i…dont..know…I hate when you make me feel dumb. It’s the worse feeling ever, considering I’m not dumb. I just have a ba while you are a doctor. It’s like whenever you can flex your brain power at me you do…it makes me feel sad on the inside.

          • Reese's Runner

            yeah, you seem super destroyed.

  5. Jenny

    I never comment but I just needed to tell you this is the best 15thing Friday I’ve ever read. You’ve put out some good ones before but this is just amazing. Thank you for making my day a little brighter! The grumpy cat, the two kids, I can’t decide which is better.

    • Reese's Runner

      Haha, well I’m glad someone got some joy from it.

    • Tess

      Yes. I totally came in to comment and say…you suck. I have to go to work! I do not have time to read it all and tackle the comments, too. And you KNOW by the time I get through it all…the comments will be out of control. It’s already started. I have to go now. I’m sad. I’ll read later. :( Damn Cely. Nice job today.

  6. I canceled cable TV about a month ago and don’t miss it at all. Saves us about $80 a month (you basically have to sell your soul for cable in Boston), and Hulu has most of the shows we watch. We still have about 10 basic local TV channels, but who really watches those…. For shows not on Hulu, I’ll have to catch up once the season DVD comes out. It’s just a good thing I have a bad memory because of all the spoilers I see on FB will be quickly forgotten.

    • Reese's Runner

      Yeah, my cable bill is without the cancelled channels $112. I had a discount the first three months on the premium channels so it was just $50. So bye-bye HBO and back down to $45. Thank God for Netflix.

      • Christie

        Choosing which channels to drop is basically ‘Sophie’s Choice’ in my world. Therefore, my cable bill is closer to $150 right now. It hurts. I’ll be dropping a package once the Homeland finale airs, but I still think the bill is insane.
        We don’t get Hulu in Canada and our Netflix sucks.
        I know, poor poor me.

  7. Hallie12409

    I live around the area Jason S. family lives in. I even met him once. He is an awesome dude in real life. The only downside is he is a major KU fan when in reality K-State is far superior. But hey, we all have faults.

    • Reese's Runner

      Well that’s so nice to hear, it’s always so heartbreaking when you find out that someone is a giant asshole. We all have our asshole days, but when you always act like an ass then you are an asshole.

      And I hate all the teams in Kansas. ALL THE TEAMS. Big 12 South foreverrrrrrrr.

  8. Jamily

    I can’t stop laughing at the last photo. Pretty sure that kid is fantastic company haha.

  9. Daisy

    Echoing the love for that last picture. I have tears in my eyes from laughing so hard, that made my morning.

  10. Michelle

    I read your blog everyday but rarely comment. You always crack me up, but today’s post took it to a new level. Thanks so much for starting my Friday off with a good laugh…especially the last pic with your hilarious comment. Have a great weekend!

  11. Justin

    I think that kid is secretly mine. When I did musical crap in school as a kid, I secretly wanted to be that boss…but instead I danced my little ass off and belted out the christmas tunes louder than anyone else…because let’s face it…I’m a show boat. I GOTS TA BE HEARD!

    • Reese's Runner

      That is really shocking to learn about you. I never would have guessed.

      • Justin

        Oh believe it babe. One time I was in a Christmas show and I was taller than most of the kids…so I had to be in the back, it KILLED me. Because I couldn’t be seen by all the ladies. Anyway I slowly stepped my way up to the front and I remembered glancing to my music teacher, her face said it all. She was amused but pissed. Annnyywaaay I totally signed autographs after Santa Clause is coming to town, and I had a photo op with my family. I’m kidding. I obviously begged to go to mcdonalds. Someday my mom will torture you with baby videos of me when you come to Tennessee. I would be ashamed but, I was a cutie pie as a child.

        • Reese's Runner

          Well, at least you have a very tiny ego.

          • Justin

            Hahahaha my ego has diminished significantly over the years. I’ve come a to find humility in my recent months with my job. Apparently I’m not God’s gift to my career field anymore…..I’m not at all bitter. It’s not like I spent days with no sleep composing, only to be told it sounded like a dog sharted into a tin can. Not bitter…at..all.

          • Reese's Runner

            Well I guess my music skills are rubbing off on you because I definitely sound like that for sure.

          • Justin

            Looks like I’ll have to start stripping to make ends meet, since you ruined my music talent.

          • Reese's Runner

            Welp, hopefully I didn’t ruin your dancing skills as well.

          • Justin

            I danced my way into the conference room today, and the carpet wouldn’t let go of my foot. Instead of face planting, I lost a shoe. There is no smooth way to rebound from that gem. Thankfully no one really paid attention to me. I’m kidding, everyone is still laughing. I’m plotting.

          • Reese's Runner

            Good. I’m glad that happened, it’s about time.

  12. Oh my gosh, this is one of the best 15 Thing Fridays!! I didn’t know that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were hosting the Golden Globes. I’ll actually watch now!

  13. I absolutely LOVE grumpy cat.

    Also, I love the Captain Morgan kid. Funny, but only because he’s not my kid.

  14. Laura

    HAVE NO FEAR. watch homeland on

    and basically any other show hours after they air. it’s fantastic!!!!

  15. Caught an advanced screening of Zero Dark Thirty a couple of weeks ago. Go see it when it comes out, it’s amazing!

    Jessica Chastain is fantastic, and Jason Clarke is so hot in this movie. I request him for a future Magnificent Men of Monday!

  16. I live in Kansas City and actually met Jason at a local bar one time…allegedly they’re getting married here so I can’t wait to find out the details. You can come stalk him with me!

  17. I also struggled to decipher if that baby was real or fake. I’m still not convinced…

    I’m also ready to get away from this cookie-centric month. Cookies all-day, all the time. I don’t really have willpower and I have the innate need to taste each and every cookie in sight.
