GoGuiltyPleasures Will Cure Your Monday Hangover, er, Blues

Most likely you’re still nursing your post-St. Paddy’s day hangover, if I’m to believe those who dialed into NYC’s most popular radio station, Z100, this morning. One woman woke to find her prosthetic leg in a tree, another man discovered himself in bed with his ex-girlfriend…and ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend.

I’m taking all of this to mean that you have the most raging case of the Mondays to date. Me too. Let’s turn these frowns upside-down with a few things that make me grin, giggle and guffaw (in that order), despite the fact that an endless week of fake niceties and spastic colons (thanks, Hoops and YoYo) await.

#1 – Going Bald for Good

Many of you have read that two of my favorite bloggers, Deb (The Monster In Your Closet) and Chris (From the Bungalow), will be shaving their heads this coming Saturday, for St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a childhood cancer charity. For immediate inspiration, head over to their blogs by clicking their names above; I encourage you to offer words of encouragement and/or a donation.

Not much guilty pleasure in that, but there IS guilty pleasure in finding a website that lets you try on Halloween wigs (for free) without leaving the comfort of your home:

Morning, Carl. I'm saving you from talking about your kids at the water cooler. No one wants to hear it.

#2 – Hoops and YoYo Sympathize

Hoops and YoYo are Hallmark’s rock stars. I love them. They sum up what Mondays feel like better than I ever could:

#3 – The John Krasinski Cure-All

A recent comment from the talented (and hilarious) Leanne Shirtliffe (Ironic Mom) inspired me to dig up a clip of one of my favorite actors, John Krasinski, doing his marionette man. If this doesn’t make you smile, you have a lot in common with things that don’t smile.

Happy Monday!

What gets you through the Monday blues?

  1. Every day I worked in a cubicle, I felt exactly like Hoops (or was it Yo-Yo?).

    Anyway, love the John Krasinski clip (love him in general). Is it just me or was he wearing leggings? If any man has my ok to wear leggings, it is him. Unfortunately, no man has my ok to wear leggings.

    1. There are SO many times I feel like that in my cubicle (though it’s nice, as far as cubicles go, I suppose)! I’m glad you got out!!!

      hahaha I was wondering the same thing about his pants! I really don’t think they’re stretchy, but…it’s a close call. Too close.

  2. What gets me through Monday blues?


    And the thought of four-day weekends involving good friends. ♥

  3. What gets me through Monday? Tuesday.

    You and purple hair . . . match made in heaven.

    Loved the Krasinski clip. I’m sold. He’s a cutie.

    I unfortunately did not get to party on St. Patrick’s Day cuz the hubs is away and I had boy duty. I mean, I did have a glass of wine Saturday night. I’m not an animal! But otherwise, nope. No hang over here. Bummer.

    1. LOL Amen to that!

      I’m not so sure about the purple hair, but if it caught John Krasinski’s eye, I might be onto something… 😉

      I actually didn’t do anything for St. Patrick’s Day, either (except have friends over for a non-themed lunch)! I think this means you get to make up for it in the future with a day of shameless binge drinking.

  4. My St. Paddy’s day party was so fab that I’m just getting around to work today. Is it ok if your Monday cheer-ups are applied to Tuesday as well?

  5. I get through the first day of the week by fooling myself into believing that Monday’s already here so it doesn’t count, therefore there are just four days ’till Friday!
