I went through my closet and all I could find to throw away were a truckload of reusable grocery bags and some old books.
I hate throwing away books as much as anyone but here are a few that are definitely leaving this apartment.
Book 1: Halo Two: The Official Guide. True Story: Bought because I’m too impatient to learn a game by actually playing it. Better Story: One day during final exams, I forgot I had to bring in an object that signified feminism for one of my women’s lit classes. This book was in my backpack and the presentation went something like this:
“Hi, my name is Brittany I want to thank the women who paved the way by being CEO’s and ProDom‘s and made it possible for young women like myself to play in a man’s world.” *Applause. Then another presenter got up and sang a super creepy and demented version of Jewel’s “You were meant for me” with her object, an acoustic guitar. Scary.
Book 2: 6 Pixels of Separation by Joel Mitchell. From Jan 1, 2008 to November 2009, I didn’t have a personal computer. So I bought a macbook out of the trunk of a BMW with too-dark tint. (I’m typing on it right now). The book is about social media and if you want it, go to the Goodwill on Michigan, I’m sure its not obsolete by now.
Book 3: Not Even A Hint: Guarding your Heart Against Lust by Josh Harris. This book was given to me by my loving mom to protect me against all of the douche-canoes I would encounter during my freshman year of college.
Dear Mom, it worked! It really did. I only got suckered by one douch-canoe in all of 2003. His name is Dicky.
3 Saturdays in a row, Dicky & I have been up before dawn for various activities.
Here was the conversation this morning:
Dicky: Look at this coupon we got again for Natural Bliss Creamer.
Me: Oh hell yeah! That is my jam. *finger dance and high five
Dicky: I think they have an actual soul scanner at Target and that’s how they know this coupon is the best way for us to come back.
Me: We’ve got to stop waking up so early….
PS: The suggested tags for this post include the entire cast of Twilight but no mention of cream or coffee. wth, wordpress??
PPS: This should have been posted on a Saturday, I know. Haters gonna hate.
My boyfriend and I have taken up. I can’t say why, other than he wanted to learn and I’m always up for a challenge. We’ve found a fantastic studio now but it wasn’t always this easy…
Our first studio experience was basically a B movie Continue reading »flick waiting to happen. At the first class, we were supposed to learn a few introductory steps but it was more like Zombie Conversion 101.
This week, so many random things happened that again, my brain thinks that every person will want to know about them! My inner Ke$ha rears her glittered head and shouts “Look at me! I’m so funny and silly and personable! And different! I’m so unique!”
And I went to the Central Florida BlogCon and was super inspired by all of the fantastic CFL bloggers who shared their experience and happiness being a blogger. Continue reading »
