You're in Sinbad's House.


My name is Laura.



I am in my late twenties. I live in Austin, Texas, with my new-ish husband Kevin, and our pets Hazel, Wink and Lennie Briscoe. I enjoy college sports (particularly my Jayhawks), old movies, popcorn, outdoor dining, Scrabble, bourbon, pretzels, bad reality television, and the Chicago Blackhawks. I'm learning to be a better cook.

Blah blah blah going to Dallas this weekend blah blah blah going to some shows next weekend blah blah blah ROYALS WOOOO blah blah. Whatever. The biggest news this week comes from my little sister…

SHE SIGNED WITH AN AGENT.

YEAH GIRL.

Kevin, the dogs, the cat and I have been in the new house for two weeks. It is amazing the difference between our old apartment and the house. It is much lighter/brighter, we can actually control the temperature indoors (and Kevin doesn’t wind up getting so hot in bed that he moves to the couch EVERY FREAKING NIGHT) and I don’t have to get pissed about people leaving clothes in the washer for ten hours.

Ahhhhh.

Our apartment was great and it would definitely be great for grad students, but for an old, crabby married couple with dogs who need to run around, this house is a major, much-needed upgrade. Did I mention it’s the same price as our old apartment? Yeah. We lucked out.

Our boys never gave up! What a game!

Greatest game.

Kevin and I saw The War on Drugs last night at Stubb’s. That was one of my most favorite shows I’ve seen in Austin. So good.

Song of the day: The War on Drugs - Red Eyes

Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!! 

Kansas City forever.

An interesting read about the life of an agency, as a follow up to a question Digiday asked about “why agency people are unhappy”. Certainly some agencies and their people are happier than others, but most of this applies (and I feel like I can say that, having worked at three different agencies with varying levels of happiness). I think people who are submitting thoughts fail to mention that people who are unhappy feed off of each other, so if a few people are unhappy it rubs off on the rest.

I’m not saying agency life is bad, again it varies, but a lot of these complaints I experienced (or witnessed other people experiencing firsthand).

No big deal, just finding a way to work Leslie Knope into an important work presentation. 

Sweet dreams.
