Home Alone & The Five Friends You Seriously Do Not Need and How to Get Rid of Them

I have the house to myself for a few days, which I want to mean THIS:

But in reality is more like this:

So while I eat nothing but broccoli for five days while trying desperately to recreate the excitement of watching Battlestar Galactica for the first time (impossible), have some posts.

I did a nice guest spot over at Don't You Hate Pants. "The Five Friends You Seriously Do Not Need and How to Get Rid of Them" -- don't waste your time on guides that don't tell you how to be free of the shitty friends you somehow accumulate over a lifetime. They don't know JACK.

Screenshot! ZOOM.

Enjoy the post, guys! 

UPDATE: I haven't cleaned one single thing, nor have I baked anything. This lead to the following conversation:

Brad: Hah.
Me: Oh wait. I think I just oversnacked myself and now I have a stomach ache.

So, fails all around? 


  1. That is EXACTLY how I feel about having the house to myself, and exactly what happens when I actually do.

  2. This is actually how it is when I DO NOT have the house to myself too.

  3. Marsanderson: Isn't it sad?

    Rude: Hahaha!

  4. I've yet to muster up the balls to watch BSG for the second time, mostly because I'm afraid that the plot holes which weren't tiny to begin with would now look like... well, very fucking big and annoying plot holes, and I'd be trying to convince myself I was 13 years old or stoned when I watched it the first time and that's why I liked it, and I know I wasn't either one, so it would all be kinda awkward. Shit.

  5. seriously. i was confused. lol. but your doughnut!!!! is so attractive! haha good work!

  6. oooh. Jealous. I'm only getting 5 cents from ad revenue.

    Love the illustrations. And I am totally the same way. I have the house to myself, and I get all pumped about finally cleaning house, getting laundry done, and pampering myself... and then I find myself staring at my computer all day and contemplating whether or not I feel energized enough to actually eat something.

  7. I edited to post an update like, six times yesterday because I earned FOUR DOLLARS AND NINETY THREE CENTS. But I didn't want to seem like I was bragging (about four dollars?) so I kept canceling the update.

    Click throughs are ridiculous! DOLLARS! WHOLE DOLLARS!

    Today I have done a grand total of no things. Oh, day.

  8. So, let me know if you ever figure out how to get the money away from Google. The number they say they owe me keeps growing, but at this point it's still imaginary. :(

  9. Do you have the settings set to pay you monthly?

  10. Ha !!

    I love the meh thing, that- Really, made me laugh!!!

  11. Hey!
    found yur blog on blog hop! love this blog! and im exactly the same when im home alone - have lots of plans but dont do them! - Nadine x

  12. Ruairi - I say it all the time! Take it, make it yours!!!!

    Nadine - I'm so glad you hopped over, thanks for the compliments! Hope to see you around.

  13. Me home alone is just like you with broccoli, but instead it's a big bowl of spaghetti I shouldn't be eating plus wine.

    Also, I could never ever ever argue with a donut. The donut always wins. She wins quicker if she's of the Krispy Kreme variety, and then I'm forced to eat it.

  14. Oh man, that sounds so tasty. Want.

  15. That's totally rad. You get to argue with a donut and I get to fight a Ninja Squirrel (maybe he can even fight off those bad friends I shouldn't have).

  16. I just found your blog through Giddy Fingers and, being completely obsessed with the movie 'Home Alone', I got super duper excited when I saw the title of this post. (Haha I'm lame, I know.)

    Anyway, I fully support bringing back the word 'rad'!
