Nora Confessions (XI)

24 Aug

View all previous installments in this series here.

* I like to watch iCarly. And Victorious. And okay, maybe Big Time Rush. Not all the time, not every day, just when they happen to be on Nickelodeon. (I used to be a nanny so I’m kind of used to the cheesiness that is Nickolodeon TV shows. That will be the excuse for this one…)

* I have not seen Labyrinth or The Goonies.

* My blog-writing-motivation has been uncharacteristically low lately (although now that I say that I’m sure 100 ideas will pop into my head) and I feel rather bad about it. This also applies to blog reading and commenting as of late.

* For awhile I was really good at checking my voicemail on my cell phone but in the last few weeks I’ve started ignoring it again. I dislike the phone tree menu I have to go through in order to get to my messages and how painfully slow the whole system is.

* I think I’m the worst when it comes to applying self-tanner. I always wind up streak-y despite my best efforts.

* There are days where I wonder why in the world I put myself through the last few years of graduate school; some days it feels hardly worth it but I hope I feel differently when I receiveĀ  the diploma.

* I keep a stash of Junior Mints in my top dresser drawer for emergency sweet tooth cravings. Fortunately I tend to forget they are there most days.

* On Sunday night I mentally map out which outfits I’m going to wear which day of the week. It makes getting up early a little bit easier for me.

* I have more celebrity crushes than real-life crushes.

    I feel the same way about Disney Channel – Hannah Montana, Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Sonny with a Chance. They are just so full of positive energy eventually it rubs off on you!

    I’m a junior caramels girl & everyone needs an emergency stash, in my opinion :)

    It wasnt until college that i saw the Goonies (some people have issues with that!) and i too watch iCarly but i have a teenage in the house so that is my excuse (personally i find it really clever!)

    The Goonies is one of my favorite movies.

    I also fully support having an emergency stash of candy when needed. Mine is reese’s pieces.

    My blogging libido has been low lately too!! I think the of summer is just calling out to us to come out to play :) And ditto on the voicemail messages! I find them a hassle too!

    I don’t think you’re missing much by not having seen Labyrinth. That movie freaks me out and always has.

    Love the idea of mapping out a whole week of outfits! I can’t believe that never occured to me. I try to do it each night but usually end up crashing or too tired to care. I’m going to try that next week – thanks!

    Celebrities are more fun to have crushes on anyways!

    Take a break from blogging, as always, we’ll still be here when you come back! XO

    OMG I haven’t seen Labyrinth or The Goonies, much to my boyfriend’s shock. And I kinda refuse to at this point. But slowly he’s breaking me. Making me watch hilarious 80s movies.

    I never watched the Goonies. I watched the Labyrinth on accident. Oh David Bowie, I cannot look at you the same way again.

    Here’s my secret: Bloggers intimidate me and makes me wonder where I stand.

    I love that you map out your outfits on SUndays. That would be so helpful for me to do. Not sure if I’ll ever get around to it, but I love the idea.

    I hate the effort required when you want to do anything with voicemail. Gah!

    Let’s see…

    So far I’ve only finished ONE napkin in my sewing challenge.

    I walk around my apartment without clothing a lot. I mean, a lot.

    I’ve never seen labyrinth either. And I am not that crazy about Goonies…

    I’ve never read Little Women. There are so many classic children/Young Adult books that I never got around to reading. But I am making up for it by reading them as an adult. I already downloaded a free version of Little Women on my Nook. :)

    I’ve never seen The Goonies either. I embarrassed myself fully by telling this to Sean Astin, who starred in The Goonies.

    oh man i’ve always had more celebrity crushes than real crushes, but it’s not like that’s a surprise or anything, haha.

    Good lord it’s like you went in my brain and wrote a few of these. Um, when you come visit we will take care of that Labrynth and Goonies thing. Really, give in to it :)

    I love your confessions series. It’s always so … revealing. =) If you can believe it, I, too, map out what I’m going to wear for the week … specifically for days when I have plans after work. Especially these days when my wardrobe seems to be getting smaller and smaller when I’m getting bigger and bigger. ha.

    Ah, I love ya!

    Um, I watch iCarly and Victorious on Sundays while at Husband’s grandma’s (with all of his little cousins). Though they’re cheesy, I kind of enjoy them!

  21. ria August 25, 2010 at 11:03 am #

    I’m newly into Sonny With A Chance. It’s nice to watch stress-free TV sometimes.
