This is How I Feel, Volume 44

this is how I feel

If you’re new here (hello!), This is How I Feel happens on Fridays, reflecting my deep, deep love of GIFs and dumb captions.


When someone younger invites me to a party that starts at 9p. Sorry I’m old.

This is How I Feel, Volume 44


Waiting for my take-out order to arrive.

This is How I Feel, Volume 44


When I’m scrolling through all of the recipe photos on Pinterest.

This is How I Feel, Volume 44


When I leave my phone at home and I’m at Target and I still instinctively reach for my phone. :'(

This is How I Feel, Volume 44


When a friend teases me, but my comeback is flawless.

    The reindeer. I am so the reindeer. You can always tell when I’m hungry because I blow up my pinterest feed with recipes instead of just going to get real food out of my kitchen.

    **Nerd Alert** I want This Is How I Feel Fridays to be like converting something from Imperial to Metric in my head – double it and add 32. More. More. MORE. Quite literally the thing I look forward to most on Fridays.

    This is one of the reasons I love Fridays!!! It’s always so exciting when I get the “This Is How I Feel Email”. When I get the email I grab a cup of coffee, put a show on for the kids and sit and enjoy each Gif and caption. You have such a great gift of humor and writing, thank you for bringing laughter and great insight and advice into my email each week!

    Sort of how I’m feeling too…. particularly when I look on Pinterest! Someday I’ll learn how to cook one of those awesome recipes.

    • Reply Roo February 10, 2014 at 6:13 pm

      Oreo lasagna next to green smoothies. Not fair.

    When I wait for take out orders, I assume the neighbors think I am turning into a crazy creeper. Running from back door to front looking out the windows wondering which door the delivery guy will come to.

    • Reply Roo February 10, 2014 at 7:52 pm

      And then they see you weeping tears of joy when it arrives so I’m sure it’s totally cool, hahahaa. :)

  • Reply Joanna S. February 7, 2014 at 1:38 pm

    Ever notice with every passing minute that you wait for your food you get about 10x hungrier?
    It’s probably all that walking to the front door. :)

    • Reply Roo February 10, 2014 at 7:51 pm

      I basically turn into an animal tearing the paper bag away from the food. :P

    Any gif with Lucille Bluth makes me even happier.

    • Reply Kaitlyn February 7, 2014 at 3:32 pm

      AGREED! #lucillefanforlife

    • Reply Roo February 10, 2014 at 7:35 pm

      Hahahaha AD fans love that girl.

  • Reply mamikaze February 7, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    I am a gif hoarder. Lucille throwing shade goes straight to my tiny heart.
    When I’m waiting for delivery, I’m always “who’s knocking on the door? oh, right, I ordered stuff.”

    • Reply Roo February 10, 2014 at 7:49 pm

      Hahahaha I’m more like “is that a truck? is that UPS?” and I fling the door open and extend my arms for a hug.

  • Reply Laurie February 7, 2014 at 4:36 pm

    Oh I so needed these today.

    • Reply Roo February 10, 2014 at 7:49 pm

      Glad they were here for you, Laurie!

      Seriously when I first saw that GIF I laughed harder than I should have.

  • Reply Jen February 11, 2014 at 2:36 pm

    Oh man, this was a particularly good edition. That cat and the Frozen ones totally had me LOLing.

  • Reply Anastasia February 12, 2014 at 1:03 pm

    THE CAT. That is so me and my husband. We basically start looking out the window 10 minutes after we order haha

    I have not seen the last GIF guy before and have to look into where he came from! Seems pretty funny
