Flipflops in the Rain

vino fueled know-it-all…

you know you’re getting old when you choose to stay home on a friday night and go to bed before 11 — TWO FRIDAYS IN A ROW. (scratch that. THREE. but i blame the snow for the third.)

you know you watch too much TV when you have seen every rerun on every channel.

you know you’re right when you say “ugh, Katherine Heigl SUCKS!!!”

you know you’re not a “real” american if you only choose to watch the olympics when someone else puts it on — or when you STILL don’t really care about curling or know what it is, even though it’s apparently the new cool american thing to do to act like you’re obsessed with it.

you know you’re a traditionalist when you love all types of wine, but you go back to the same ol’ riesling every single time.

you know you’re a lightweight when you’ve only had one teeny, tiny glass of said riesling and your eyes are crossing and you catch yourself rambling about nothing.

you know you’re an emotional lightweight when you’ve only had two teeny, tiny glasses and you start sobbing during Kell on Earth* because OMG SHE’S AN AMAZING BOSS when really? she’s terrifying. TERRIFYING!

*can we talk about this show for a minute? she’s seriously terrifying, but i can’t stop watching. her personality is so incredibly intimidating and I’m so glad i don’t work for her, but i think i want to be her! she inspires me to embrace my inner bitch slash genius.


You know you are an idiot when you write crap like this in a blog.

You know you’ve made it as a blogger when you write about absolutely nothing, and you still manage to piss someone off. Snaps for me!

oh, Martin. Martin, Martin, Martin. Do you by chance know a man named Howard?

Comment by pithycomments

wtf, martin?

also, though, curling! does not compute. it’s not cool. people are winning medals for using Swiffers on ice.

Hm…let’s see. Staying in on Friday nights, check. Getting tipsy off one glass of Riesling, check. Not understanding curling because it looks like shuffleboard, check.

I am totally with you on this post!

Comment by stealthnerd

i’m so glad you see what i mean about curling! so. WEIRD!

Comment by flipflopsintherain

We were totally meant to be friends because I could have written this post, too. Even though I’d prefer a pinot grigio to the reisling…
