love language

inspired by julie ("pb fingz") and my best friend / life partner, evie (eve's apple), i took a quiz to find out what my love language is.

i remember evie telling me about the 5 love languages a while ago when we lived together in brooklyn. or when we were abroad together in northern ireland. i can't remember which. either way, she's the person who told me about them first.

anyway, check out my results and then find out your own by taking this quiz:

merry christmas, bladder!

everyone listen up while i talk about myself!

i'm a bipolar shopper. i'll go weeks, months even, without buying something. i'll go so far as to go "shopping," pick out items, walk around the store with them, and then i tell myself that i don't need these things and why am i spending this money that i could use for something else (that i also don't end up buying). so i put everything back and leave empty-handed. then there's the other shopper in me that's standing in line at starbucks to get some coffee for my coworkers and myself, and all of a sudden i need this starbucks plastic insulated tumbler with a candy cane straw. so i buy it.

most of the time i regret these purchases, and for a few minutes after i got back to work, i questioned my decision. but then i decided to just go with it.

let me tell you. this is the best thing i've gifted myself in a long time. i could do without the huge starbucks logo, but the candy cane straw is what i fell in love with, and i'm willing to accept my tumbler for the tumbler it is, not the tumbler i want it to be. i have been drinking SO much water lately. TMI alert! i am now a peeing machine. it is awesome (the water, not the peeing). i feel like i could rival my sister-in-law, priscilla, who can drink 8 glasses of water per meal. i'm not kidding. i was with her over thanksgiving and in one hour alone she downed 5 16-oz bottles of water. what a champ.

anyway, i love this thing. thanks for listening. i gotta go now. time to pee again.

if you don't hear from me

over the next few weeks it will be because:

1. i'm still reveling in how wonderful my thanksgiving was. it was perfect and i want a repeat.

2. i'm all christmas-happy/last-minute gift shopping.

3. i'm watching mad men. amy and i watched 20 episodes the weekend before thanksgiving. we just started season 3 on tuesday and expect to be caught up through season 4 by next weekend, if not before. i mean, don't forget about my experience watching LOST. i can dominate some tv.

4. i'm rereading all 7 harry potter books. i finished book 1 last night. jk rowling, i owe you my first-born.


otherwise, i'll do my best to keep thrilling y'all with my musings.
