Flipflops in the Rain


i’ve been having a sugar craving all day. i don’t know why (although pithy might tell me it’s because i eat too much protein and not enough carbs), but i’ve been thinking about cupcakes all.damn.day.

but then i got sidetracked and started reading a post about ben & jerry’s recent letter from PETA. Which then led me to this. and now all i can think about is cupcakes with a side of cake batter and cheesecake brownie ice cream. siiiigh.

on a brighter note, for those of you anxiously waiting for an update on my bridesmaid-bootcamp slash fast-food-fast slash definitely-going-to-the-gym-three-times-a-week-kick, I’ve lost about 10 pounds since May.

therefore, i’m going to raise a spoon of deliciously rich, ooey-gooey-sugary goodness tonight and indulge my sweet tooth. yea friday!

she’s back!

and so not pleased with me… luckily, i’m a sucker for her affection so when she pretended to fall down the stairs last night, i took the conehead off for good.

sad news: took the fluffball to the kitty hospital this morning for a, um, bladder procedure.
she secretly loves the pink bag

she secretly loves the pink bag

sadder news: i may be joining her at the people hospital because my diet includes the somewhat regular consumption of chili’s honey bbq chicken crispers, which apparently have 1890 CALORIES and 99 GRAM OF FAT. not including the side of heart-attack-flavored fries dipped in ranch.

seems i may need to modify my fast food fast to exclude sit-down chains.

now i know my ABCs

i just noticed i was tagged to do this by lily’s pad. little does she know, i’ve always been obsessed with filling out surveys and talking about myself.

A. Attached or Single?

well, i’m pretty sure they don’t call attached people ‘crazy cat ladies.’

B. Best Friend?

i’m lucky to have quite a few spread around this country — in alphabetical order as is the nature of this post: al, amanda, anna, beth, brooke, crazy eyes, dead robin, elise, erika, jelena, jenn, kelli, lyd, mel, mike… i’m gonna stop there because i sound ridiculous. but seriously — i have several people i can count on when i need a shoulder to cry on.

C. Cake or pie?

cupcakes, ice cream cake, cheesecake, cake batter ice cream…

D. Day of choice?

lazy saturdays and sundays.

E. Essential item?

lately, my piece of mind on-the-spot relief lotion from origins. it soothes my restless mind and actually allows me to fall asleep at a decent hour.

F. Favorite color?

super-duper-happy pink. i’m also a fan of the blues and greens.

G. Gummy bears or worms?

i’m all about bears.

H. Hometown?

fall city/north bend, wash.

I. Favorite indulgence?

a massage and pedicure followed by a bubble bath with a bottle of red wine, scented candles and some “brand new’ playing in the background followed by a long nap.

J. January or July?

july, for sure. cold, gray weather makes me a whiny lil mess.

K. Kids?

none at the moment, but i have my fluffy pseudo-child to provide for… and my adorable lil nieces.

L. Life isn’t complete without?

friends and family and lots of sleep.

M. Marriage date?

i’m gonna go out on a limb and say sometime in the next century. maybe.

N. Number of brothers and sisters?

got the bro, the sis and the bro-in-law.

O. Oranges or Apples?

baby oranges — clementines.

P. Phobias?

everything, but mostly raccoons, fire, knives and bees.

Q. Quotes?

i actually have a book of quotes that i scribble in every time i hear something i like — but i always freeze when someone asks me offhand. i think i’ll go with one listed on my facebook:

“in reality, there’s nothing more damaging than a secure future. the very core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure.” — into the wild.

R. Reasons to smile?

everything listed here — and pumpkin spice lattes. i can’t believe i didn’t include those before.

S. Season of choice?


T. Tag 5 people:

Meh… whoever wants to do it, but I wouldn’t mind seeing some answers from pithy, smug monkey, 20 something and both bendtheredonethat bloggistas.

U. Unknown fact about me?

i had to wear corrective shoes when i was a baby because my feet were pigeon toed. (Sorry, that doesn’t link to a picture of my alien feet.)

V. Vegetable?

celery — yummmmmy. sometimes i eat celery with cream cheese and steak seasoning salt for dinner. sounds weird, but it’s sooo good. seriously, try it.

W. Worst habit?

i don’t really do moderation — but i’m getting better! i also chomp on my nails when i’m stressed.

X. X-ray or Ultrasound?

neither — i hate going to the doctor. it creeps me out.

Y. Your favorite food?

crab, mashed potatoes, baked mac and cheese, almost all desserts

Z. Zodiac sign?

a stubborn, bossy, competitive aries.

i was going to be cliche and call this post ch-ch-changes…

so i’m thinking about giving my bloggy blog a full body makeover — including deleting all the x365 posts since i obviously couldn’t keep that commitment. anyway, was looking for some feedback:

Is it ridiculous to delete my old (and in some cases, irrelevant) posts?

Check yes or no, and let me know what you think before recess.
