Ho boy, was my weekend a blur! Saturday was crazy busy at work, I was so exhausted when I got home that I fell asleep on the couch and totally forgot to write. Sunday I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and went out for dinner. Both the hubbster and I had been feeling kinda iffy since we got tacos Saturday night, and for me (unfortunately) it peaked while we were watching the movie. I felt like I was going to be sick, and it was coming at me in waves. Hard to enjoy a movie when you are smack dab in the middle of the row, wondering if you will have to throw up in an empty cup while making your way through a small passageway, careful to not step on anyone while mumbling “sorry” for interrupting their entertainment. Luckily I was able to mentally calm myself, do some deep breathing, and make it through. I think things felt worse when I was “trapped”, so once I was out in the open again I could shake it off. Dinner, while delicious, was a slow pace for me, as I needed to listen to my body’s signals. I again felt pretty tired when I got home, so I just relaxed and went to bed. So now, I shall write a long post in an attempt to catch up!
5 weird things that you like
1. I don’t really know why I do this, or why I like it, but I enjoy filling a cup up right to the top, then using my tongue like a straw to suck up the first sip. So, there’s that…
2. Another beverage thing I do that’s odd, but I have a reason behind it, is to use a large spoon to drink orange juice with when I’m not feeling well. When I was a kid, I did this because I knew orange juice had a lot of vitamins, especially vitamin C, which is good to drink when you are sick. I pretended it was medicine, and fed it to myself like you would actual medicine. It’s somehow comforting to do even as an adult.
3. I really like talking in weird voices or accents. I hope I never offend anyone with the accents, I mostly just do it to get better at it. I think maybe it’s because I used to be in plays and drama classes when I was younger, so making up new characters that were from another place was fun.
4. I used to have an unhealthy obsession with pickles. Me and my roommate in college (shout out to S-Dawg!) used to have pickle binges like every night while we watched Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. I have since curbed my addiction, so it’s not as weird anymore, but I do sometimes drink some pickle juice. My hubby says that’s weird. Whatever.
5. My Husband, hehehe
The meaning behind your blog name
Well, my last name used to be Roberts, and now it’s Mossman. My nickname was CRo, and now I’m CMo, so to honour my past and present names, I made my blog RoMo. Plus RoMo Blog kind of sounds like Robo cop, kind of.
3 books on your bookshelf
Bossypants ~ Tina Fey
I freaking love Tina Fey. She’s brilliant, and I’ve admired her ever since I first saw her on SNL, and now that I’ve read her book (and Amy Poehler’s book “Yes Please”), I love her even more. And she gets prettier with age! She’s like a sexy, funny wine.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower ~ Stephen Chbosky
I have read this book about 5 times now, and it gets better every time. I believe it’s the only book Chbosky has written so far, but I think even if he writes more it will always be my favourite. It’s a coming of age tale that I think a lot of people can relate to, especially if you were an outsider in high school.
Anything by Augusten Burroughs (I own “Magical Thinking”, “Running with Scissors”, and “Possible Side Effects”)
I feel like Burroughs can write anything and make it comedy gold. He is so unbelievably witty and clever, it’s hard to not laugh out loud while reading any of his works. He has lived a crazy life, allowing him to write both fiction and non fiction with such pizzazz.
