If we were having coffee, I’d assure you that, OH MY GAWD, I SWEAR I’M NOT A DRUNK.
The last time I was even remotely tipsy was when I wrote this post.
(I’d also assure you that that post was a hit and blogging drunk is fun)
All my friends are far away and I have no one to drink with but myself. #collegegraduateproblems
(yes, I’m writing this post slightly intoxicated, again)

If we were having coffee, I discuss how generally boring and uninspiring this week was. At least at work. Seriously. Summer is coming to an end, folks, and that means less people want milkshakes and smoothies. And even though I’ve been making more hot coffee drinks than I have been all summer (because it’s been unusually rainy and chilly this whole week), business has been sloowww this whole week. Seriously. I spent the last hour of work last night doing practically nothing. I didn’t get a single order in that last hour of work last night.
If we were having coffee, I’d talk about how I did get my visa application sent in to the consulate on Tuesday and I did go to a travel clinic and got some typhoid pills and I did go to coffee with my best friend since Kindergarten. Oh, and I did get my paycheck cashed in a timely manner for once (as opposed to five days late, which has been the usual recently). So, it’s not that it’s been an unproductive week. It’s just that all that unproductiveness seems so far away since that was at the beginning of this week and now it’s the end and I’ve been working away since Wednesday at my job that has been exceedingly boring of late and I just finished binge watching four hours of Gilmore Girls and I mean, no regrets or anything, it was dandy…but talk about unproductive!
If we were having coffee, I’d talk about how, even though real life has been uninspiring of late, exciting things have been happening in the blogosphere. As in, I bought my domain last night (go see for yourself in the address bar!). It started something like this: my brother noticed me blogging away last night and said, “you use WordPress, right?” and I said, “Yeah,” and he said, “I use it, too, for the website I manage at work. Did you buy your domain?” And I said “No, I didn’t want to spend the money” and he said, “Oh, I did. I like WordPress. It’s really easy to use.” Our conversation continued on for a bit after that, but the point of all this is, I started to think: “My brother bought a domain for a site that’s for work. Why can’t I buy a domain for my own personal site” So I looked into it and it was waay cheaper than I anticipated so I bought my domain, spur of the moment last night. So there you have it. No more .wordpress.com in my site address. Just brittabottle.com. I’m pretty excited. 🙂
If we were having coffee, I’d talk about how I have been making some other changes to the blog. Check out my new Awards and Tags Policy page for more information on why I wont be accepting awards or tags any longer (this has been a long time coming, folks) and also, my new header image. I settled on the Plane Theme a few weeks ago and am generally very pleased with it. That said, I had been very unsatisfied with the header images I had created and so I made a new one up a few nights ago. This one’s here to stay (for now). Look for more changes on the blog when I find the time/the energy/feel inspired. I have some ideas to continue on with changes…and this blogging business is still very much a work in progress.
If we were having coffee, I’d be about ready to pass it on to you…and ask you if you have anything to share over coffee.
