Hey, It's Okay Tuesday!

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your diary. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either.

----------------------

To prefer the extreme heat in Oklahoma to the chilliness in Wyoming.


To love the Godiva milkshake. It’s six bucks but it’s worth it.


To hate when people get gas and leave their vehicle by the gas pumps to run inside the convenience store. PARK please, so people behind you don’t have to wait forever. Unless you have to pay inside I guess….


To not be surprised that Hugh Hefner isn’t getting married again. Apparently his fiancé didn’t like that there were always women around. Half naked ones.


To love Steak N Shake. I had never eaten there before I came to Oklahoma and I’m now obsessed with their Diet Cherry Coke (note: happy hour is 2-4…half price drinks and shakes..)


To have been depressed over the ending of Jodi Picount’s Handle with Care novel.


To be wary of the guy on that Haunted Collector show who takes items that he claims are causing hauntings in people’s homes. I’d be like, “Fu*k no you aren’t taking my stuff.” Unless, you know, my children’s heads started to spin like Linda Blair’s.


To hope that the rest of my stuff gets here soon. I sort of need my vacuum.


To have not made the best impression on my new neighbor. I sort of screamed when his dog charged over to me. But in my defense, I didn’t expect to see a dog out at 10 at night. The guy is probably like, “The eff is wrong with her?”


To really need to start exercising since I’ll be going to the beach in 2 weeks. It’s just, I love food…and not healthy food like kale and cereal that looks like bark. Real food.

  1. You'd think Hugh Heffner's ex-fiancee would have noticed the half naked girls sooner. She was one of them, after all.

  2. I hope your neighbor makes amends for having his dog frighten you like that... maybe he will stop by with some "real food" for you (or let you use his vaccum)

  4. Stake & Shake rocks!

    p.s. You are already skinny. Or did you blow up since your New York trip?

  6. I prefer the heat too. I grew up in Florida, so I'll take heat over snow any day:)

    As a dog owner, it really bugs me when people don't have their dogs on leashes! I have a little dog, but I never let him charge at people.

    Although, I can't believe you haven't been to Steak and Shake before... Now I'm hungry:)

  7. I've never been to Steak N Shake! My life clearly sucks.

    I will run in to the store to get a soda sometimes, but only if there are tons of openings at the pump.

  15. Jodi Picount's novels tend to depress me too. Diet Cherry Coke sounds good.

  16. Now that you're in Oklahoma, you need to plan a trip to Turner Falls. The 12 entrance price may seem steep, but the park is gorgeous and expands forever. A good day trip or a fantastic camping trip!

  17. THERE'S A GODIVA MILKSHAKE?! I need to know where you found this... immediately.

  18. Steak -n- Shake is amazing. Frisco melts are my favorite.

  19. Welcome to Oklahoma! I would have screamed at the dog too but then I startle easily. After the first time I frighten people with my screams ... they enjoy amusing themselves by provoking me!

  20. I would have screamed when that dog charged me too.

  21. LOVE Steak 'n Shake!
    ALL of Picoult's books are depressing. Good, but depressing.
    Are you still going to love that heat when the storms hit?

    Glad to hear you are settling in your new digs. It sounds like life is good.

  22. I just can't believe Hugh's ex canceled the wedding so close to the actual wedding!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Isn't this Hefner's second failed engagement??? hmmm...maybe women don't like sharing their future husbands.

    ReplyDelete
  24. All you need at Steak n Shake is the cheese fries and a side by side milkshake. Any flavors will do, but the side by side is the best.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Godiva Milkshake?! Need.one.now!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I can't believe Hugh can still get it ....well you know....at his age? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ooh I'm going to have to try the Godiva milkshake. Where?
    My hubby likes Steak & Shake. You can't beat the prices for a pretty decent burger & fries plate.

    Hope all your stuff comes in one piece ;-)

  29. What a great idea! I may very well borrow it for my Rockin' Chair Reflections blog. Pick a different day, though. Now, I'll have to start thinking. (Lordy, I hate that part.) Come visit when you can and see what I did with an old credenza!

  30. Congrats on your movie. You sounds pretty happy in OK!

  31. I wish we had diet cherry coke...I love cherry coke, but need to drop weight (hence no soda).

    I do not enjoy cardboard food either. I will never understand that.

    Hope you get your vacuum cleaner soon!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Did you guys decide to live on or off post?? I'm hoping you get your household goods soon and intact!!!

  33. it never got below 80 in my house today and i would sell my god damn kidneys if it would cool off this weather!!!
    oops, what? sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh, sweetie, welcome to the land of Steak 'n' Shake! Everything about it is good-- especially the new happy hour drink prices! Yummy Steakburgers!

    Glad to have you in the midwest. Hope you have a basement!

  35. Don't hate me because I read Godiva Milkshake and then couldn't concentrate on the rest of the list. I became Homer Simpson there for a few minutes.

  36. Steak and Shake....yum! Now, I need one!
