My Real Life

Monday Musings

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

1.  Last summer, Real Man bought a Jeep.

Suddenly, he noticed people were waving to him when he was driving.

All the time.

At first we thought that maybe people just liked the Jeep, and then we noticed that all of the people who were waving were also driving Jeeps.

We started to think that, maybe, it was a “thing.”

So, we did what everyone does when they don’t know something.

We googled it.

And it is, in fact, a “thing.”

There are forums dedicated to the “Jeep Wave.”

Who knew?

2.  I spent all day Saturday and Saturday night in the city with Kim, Erin and Michaela.

We had a fantastic time together and I just love those girls.

Kim did a Mark Wahlberg impression that had me almost snorting my boneless pork ribs out of my nose.

(BTW…Buddakan has the most delicious boneless pork ribs I have ever, ever eaten.  They made them special for us because they cook a lot of their food in oyster sauce which would have had me stabbing myself in the thigh with an Epi-Pen, but I’m sure they were just as good in the oyster sauce!)

We slept in Kim’s apartment which was absolutely dead silent while we slept.

And yet…

6:48 am, guess who was wide awake?

Yep.  Me.

Hate that.

3.  How much do I love the fact that the entire adult cast of Modern Family was nominated for Best Actor or Best Actresses, and that two of them won.

That show makes me laugh out loud every single week.


4.  Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Stayed away for a very long time.

Caught one episode.

Sat like a zombie with my mouth open in complete disbelief of what I was seeing.

Can’t. Look. Away.

However, the one thing I will say is that they all seem very, very happy in their lives, and that’s gotta count for something.

5.  I wonder…if I ever won an Emmy award if I would remember to thank everyone I wanted to thank, or if I’d be in such shock that I’d thank the guys at the food service truck and completely forget Real Man and the kids.

I like to think that I’d be able to keep my wits about me, but I wouldn’t put money on it.

6.  I just finished the book “Shadow of Night” by Deborah Harkness.

It’s the second in a trilogy, and I read the first book last year: “The Discovery of Witches.”

So good.

So very good.

However, I had to wait a year for the second one to come out and now I have to wait a year for the third one to come out.


Finding a trilogy after they’ve all been written = fun.

Finding a trilogy at the beginning of the trilogy = an exercise in extreme patience.

7.  The monkeys are interested in doing another video blog for you, however, we need questions!

So, if you have any questions for the monkeys, please drop them in the comments below!

Have a great week!


  1. I had no idea about the Jeep wave, and I had a Jeep. Figures. 😉

  2. Honey Boo Boo……Don’t go there. Google her & read up on it. That is a crack addict in the making.
