"Nope, not today."

Rarely does my beloved coffee fail to jumpstart my day. Six hours after waking up this morning, I'm still flatlining, barely able to hang on to whatever coffee buzz I had. I'm tired and dare I say defeated by Monday. 

Since I apparently missed National Relaxation Day last week, and because my procrastination is full blown this early afternoon, I figured I'd share some of the things I'm currently catching up on in the good 'ol world of blogging.
