i'm not alone

Just a quick story before I get into today's guest blog. So my two coworkers and I got free mini-facials at Origins yesterday. One employee made my two beautiful coworkers look like legit prostitutes. With sallow skin. Thankfully a different woman did mine and she very sweet, albeit slightly weird. She was talking about free radicals and said "You can see them today, you know. They're just hanging there in the sky." And I didn't know how to respond so I just kind of smiled, laughed awkwardly and said "Wow, I thought that was just the rain." She just looked at me and shook her head in disgust. Apparently I need to learn more about free radicals. Good thing I came home with 50 dollars worth of product. That should help, I'm sure.

Anyway, onto the real purpose for this blog. My friend Jade, who has a fantastically funny Tumblr that you all need to check out, posted a fantastic entry a couple of weeks ago. I just couldn't resist sharing it with you all. It's funny to me because it's the sort of thing that my own mother would do. Although, I think she's learned her lesson after the last disastrous blind date that she set me up on (remind me to write about that one soon).



She then goes on to explain, "Who needs dating services when you have mom to leave you notes on your desk telling you the 411? We have two Appalachian Trail thru-hikers staying here for a few days (my parents own cabins.) They’re pretty sexy but right now they’re too busy being on facebook for the first time in two months to notice my subtle advances."

So the purpose of this blog entry is to revel in the glory that I'm not the only one with a crazy, albeit very loving, mother. I work at a university and whenever I go to events my mother always says something along the lines of "Hey! Maybe tonight's the night that you'll meet the man of your dreams." Well considering that everyone is either married, incapable of normal social interaction or foreign, I don't exactly see that happening anytime soon.
