My Friends are Super Nice to Me:
Katherine: I was only in 5th grade then you see
Marcia: I was like, 8th/9th
Katherine: you were already married
Marcia: because I am OLD mc OLD
Katherine: Yes indeed, but still quite active. It's inspiring.
Marcia: um, you are supposed to say "not"
Katherine: and you pretty much still have your mind
Oh, did I tell you?
I’m leaving tomorrow morning for Grand Cayman, and I’m not coming back until Tuesday night. We’ve declared it an internet free vacation, and I plan on making headway on my 100 books in 2009 goal, a goal that has suffered greatly since buying the dog. I plan on reading 5-10 books while drinking on the beach. Also, I will swim with the stingrays.
I just dropped my puppy off to be boarded, and I...
This is the song that never ends...
(via shinyredballoon) Dear God, please, no, do not start this.
God I love when a shitty crime drama takes the “this man has two wives with children in different cities” turn.
MADDIE JUST PEED OUTSIDE TWICE IN A ROW. She was rewarded amply with treats. It seems like she’s really catching on to this housetraining… just in time for Matt and I to go out of town for 5 days so she can forget everything we’ve taught her.
I finally had my yearly review (15 days late). Good news all around. Largest raise “they” would allow (3%), and my boss wants to promote me in 6 months. Keep your fingers crossed!

There is a fucking huge cockroach (3+ inches) up near my 10 foot high ceiling in the bathroom. It’s disgusting, this is literally the only thing I hate about NYC.

That’s right, I said machineS. Both of them are not working. FML.

Governor “Buzzkill” a) sounds like Kenneth from 30 Rock and b) has a speechwriter who apparently used to write infomercials? Because that’s what this sounds like.

I just fed my dog, now I'm holding her on my lap...
I’m torturing her into taking a shit where I want her to. Which is not on my kitchen floor (in the place where she is supposed to be shitting inside, it’s not that bad), but actually outside, because the world is a huge toilet, and Maddie needs to learn this.
The thing I have noticed...
robot-heart: Once you stop buying things, you stop really wanting to buy them. When I lived in Akron for over 380 days (not that I was counting), I didn’t buy anything. Seriously. I probably bought 5 tshirts at Target for under $50 total, and when we went on vacation in San Diego, I bought a few things - but less than $200, I’m betting, and it felt ridiculously indulgent. I stuck...
Has anyone read...
subjecttochange: The Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon? And what did you think? It keeps calling to me, and I almost bought it last night, but I didn’t. I already have a bunch of unread things here and some on the way, but am wondering if it’s worth pushing to the top of the list. Not nearly as good as Kavalier and Clay, which was, in my opinion, the book that Chabon was born to...
If I declared today “juice fast day” would the idea be insane or awesome? All I’ve had today is coffee and carnation instant breakfast. Because there is nothing more awesome than dark chocolate milk at 9:20am. But you have to tell me quicky, as it’s 11:31, and I think I’m going to lunch soon.
