What’s Yo’ Beef #46

by Rachel

We’re going vegetarian today everyone… Philly bound to see the Hoochie Coochie Men, bonding with new friends, delicious sandwiches, drinking, partying, sunrises, running up the Rocky steps and a visit to Boyertown!

Life is too good to have beef today.

When you wanna cry all the way home from the bank, and you just can’t because your bro is staying with you and you don’t want to look like a pussy. COME ON!

What’s Yo Beef #41

So last Sunday I went to the Jays game to get a bobblehead for Rachel. There was a decent line, and I was in it for about 40 minutes. I could deal with that; I knew it wasn’t going to be a picnic going in. (Though in hindsight, I should have brought snacks, and definitely made it a picnic.)

Here’s where my beef comes in. Once we started moving, all these people just melded to the line and started cutting in all over the place! What the dude?! There was a line for a reason, buttmunchers. People who can’t obey society’s innate laws and have no social conscience in respect to lines. COME ON!

Rachel
That is frustrating Shannon… If you can’t do a simple societal task as properly join a line, just stay home. But the question burning in all of our minds I’m sure, did you get the bobblehead?!?!?

My beef today, specifically, is that I finally mustered up the ambition to hem some skirts and dresses, but damned if I can find my straight pins! Generally, I am constantly moving shit around and ALWAYS forgetting where I put it. Its really, really, really… really annoying. COME ON!

This dang heartbleed bug has messed up a lot of websites for me… I can’t do Pinterest (a large part of my blogging) or Etsy, and online banking is a bit dodgy too. Not a huge beef but kind of a bummer.

Dude, hasn’t life been just wicked awesome lately? So awesome, that I’m finding it a bit tough to think of beefs. Actually, I guess my one beef kind of comes out of this.

See, I’ve been having just a shit tonne of fun lately. And I feel like I have no one to share it with! I’m not really into phone calls, and sometimes texting or facebook doesn’t do a fantastic story justice, especially since I’m one for details. And really, I just don’t see friends in person enough to get it all out, because something wonderful happens every day, and we are all busy.

Wait, what is this beef even about? Uhhhh me not being a phone person? Not living in a  12-person dorm with all of my closest friends? The last one! Not living with all your friends so you can tell them everything all the time. Come on!

Well, I did have a great Good Friday, hence What’s Yo’ Beef being on Saturday this week… But it was one heck of a Monday to Thursday. I have some SERIOUS tax pain guys… Like couldn’t even sit on my couch tax pain. Those commercials aren’t lying, it’s real and there’s not much you can do about it but wait it out. I could keep going on for ages, but taxes man, COME ON!

I HATE the sound of ripping plastic casing off cardboard, also that usually the outer layer of cardboard comes off and then there’s still that rough shit that gives me the shivers you have to poke through. Ugh…. COME ON!

Shannon
My beef is when everything is on plan and you give people deadlines and they can’t stick with them… COME ON!

What’s Yo’ Beef #23

Today’s beef is brought to you by metabolism. Basically, I just wish I could eat a lot more and not turn into a fatty. I’m surprised that with evolution and science (BFFs), we haven’t figured something out where we can just eat as much delicious food as we want, not have to exercise, and still look like superstars. I know some people actually like exercising, and I’m a big fan of playing sports, but man, that’s for fun, not for fitness. Slaving away on an eliptical because I happened to eat six brownies does not a fun time make. And so, lack of a super metabolism, you, my non-friend, are my beef.

Rachel
Heyo! I hear that metabolism beef loud and clear… But my beef today is when mice come into your house, uninvited, eat your aloe, lip balm and apples, but when you put a nice chunk of cheese in a trap they aren’t interested. Do mice even like cheese, anymore than say, lip balm? Is it a proven fact or are we getting our information from Saturday morning cartoons? Or, do I just have a hyper intelligent mouse who knows it’s a trap, because they have never changed in a hundred years… COME ON!

How To: Learn An Etsy Lesson

by Rachel

I recently ordered a belt buckle from Etsy. Its vintage and would look totally awesome if it were about twice as big as what I thought I was getting. Those photographers sure can mislead you with photos, just like looking at a house to buy online is sooooo much smaller in real life. So, be sure to read the dimension of an item before buying it, even if you think it’s not necessary.

Its teeny tiny.

Size Does Matter

How To: Feel a Lot More Organized

by Rachel

I had a minor OCD takeover on Friday, but I feel totally okay about it. My closet just hasn’t been right… Its a jumble of mismatched hangers; plastic, wire, wooden and all different colours… It was a right mess. So thanks to Dollarama and their incredibly affordable hangers (a 7 pack for $2!) I have organized it in a way I can stand!

My clothes are all on white plastic hangers. Husbands clothes are all on grey plastic hangers. My dresses occupy a separate closet and are living on wooden hangers. Coats are on black and blue hangers. And all is right with the world again. There is so much to be said for colour coding.
