Friday Bullets

It’s Friday. I have an awesome headache and so I’m pounding back coffee to make it go away. As a result, you get bullets.

  • Random question: How many of you are judging me for drinking coffee while pregnant? It’s not like it’s actual crack. Besides, sources say I can have 2 (measured) cups a day of regular coffee. And I only ask this because no one has actually told me I shouldn’t drink it, they just say it’s bad for me. Splitting headaches are also bad for me, and there’s a lot less I can do about those!
  • I tried to make snickerdoodles last night and it was a mess. My oven, as it turns out, runs about 25° too hot, so I had burnt cookies :( I’m quite depressed about this because I was really looking forward to devouring cookies all night. Instead I ate Doritos.
  • My MIL gave me a tripod to have for my camera! It was for her old camcorder but since it broke/we’re not 5 anymore she doesn’t use it. I’ve been wanting one for a while but they can be a little pricey, so it was a perfect hand-me-down! I can’t wait to try experimenting with long-exposure shots.
  • It has snowed the past two nights in a row – the most snow we’ve had since sometime in November! I’m already tired of shoveling snow. Why the hell did we move to the top of a stickin’ mountain??
  • I’m finding being pregnant has made me marginally cranky. Mostly I’m just getting annoyed at dumb little things. I blame everything on hormones.
  • Since I enter my 2nd trimester Christmas Day, I get to go for my 14 week appointment on Tuesday. I’m really excited!
  • I’m pretty sure my bosses haven’t figured it out that I’m pregnant yet. Either that, or they’re not saying anything.
  • That’s the last pregnancy bullet, I promise.
  • Can someone recommend a good, but decently priced, white wine? I’m buying a bottle as a Christmas present but since I hate wine, I have no idea what to get. Usually I just judge a bottle by its label and it ends up being pretty tasty.
  • I have done extremely well on not devouring Christmas goodies. In fact, we don’t even have any chocolate in our house! This may change tonight when I go buy stocking stuffers.
  • I am fiercely avoiding my freelance work. I did all my interviews early last week and now I’m procrastinating the transcribing part of it. It’s my least favourite part of interviewing over the phone.
  • I think I finally have New Year’s Eve plans. I just have to confirm with friends and buy my ticket. Woo!

That’s enough for today, time to do some actual work!

What are your weekend plans?

  1. I’ve never been much of a coffee drinker but I ate SO MUCH chocolate when I was pregnant – I felt like everyone was judging me! Wait, maybe THAT’S why Topher was so massive …


  2. I haven’t been drinking coffee while pregnant, but I do eat massive amounts of chocolate so I definitely get some caffeine intake! I commend you on not devouring Christmas treats, because that’s basically all I have been doing. I have NO self-control!

    As far as weekend plans go…I’ve been Christmas shopping the past 2 days and still am not done. Ugh!
