Awkward and Awesome: Babysitter's Club

Who didn't love those books growing up?  That's not really the point of the post, but I did babysit today (more on that later), so it seemed fitting.

Here's a little glimpse at my week.

- How the heck is February already, seriously?!?!
- SXSW falling right around Finals Week for me.  Not that I actually have money for it, but a girl could dream.
- My attention span in class right now.  I need to refocus a little bit.
- My attention span and this blog post.  It's taking me much longer than necessary because I can't focus.  There seems to be a trend here.
- While watching my young charge today (5-year-old boy) this afternoon, I went to the bathroom.  He yelled something at me through the door.  I couldn't tell what exactly.  When I came out, he was wandering around the back deck with his pants and underwear around his ankles.  I'm sure his dad let's him go outside sometimes.  Sure.
- Do I really need other awkwards after that? Really?

- The Hunger Games trilogy.  I'm late to the game on this one, I know.  But they are so good.  I was reminded of Ender's Game while reading them.  Another book I highly recommend.  I've also read Ender's Shadow, but apparently there is a huge number of books in the series.  Noted.
- Getting paid in cash today. So nice.
- Plans for dinner at my favorite Indian place with a friend tonight.  I can't wait for the endless cups of chai.
- Having a carpool buddy for class Wednesday nights. We're trying to keep life interesting by stopping for dinner at a different place each week.  Last night's stop was Whole Paycheck.
- Super Bowl weekend with some good friends.  I'm looking forward to the game, commercials, food, all of it.  And the pre-Super Bowl coverage being gone.  It's like the election coverage -- exhausting.


  1. ARE YOU GOING TO CEDARS?! Best Chai ever.

  2. I second Stevie! I love that place!

  3. HAHAHAHA - Hey if a kid wants to moon people, let him moon people I say :)

  4. Hey your day babysitting sounds like my normal day at work ;DD

  5. The Hunger Games trilogy kept me from focusing on anything! I can't believe how much else you are managing to accomplish while reading them. I had a one track mind. It wasn't pretty.

  6. I hope you have a lovely dinner tonight! Drink a cup of chai for me. :)

    I loved reading the Babysitter's Club! Remember the movie? AMAZING!

  7. I love the Babysitter's Club growing up!!! The Hunger Games series was also rad.
