My husband (the Geographer) informed me yesterday that this blog now has more followers than at least 3 sovereign countries have inhabitants. I believe that makes us our own country now y’all! Welcome to ContraryLand!
A few things about our country…
National Bird: Blue Footed Booby (Haha…. booby…..)
National Song: Lazy Sunday
( http://www.hulu.com/watch/1397 )
National Motto: LOL
National Animal (large): Nessie (The Loch Ness monster, but don’t let “monster” fool you, she’s actually very gentle and gives great advice on how to prepare fish.)
National Animal (small): Chupacabra (Hide your goats!)
National Insect: Jiminy Cricket (He can be annoying but he keeps us honest.)
Feel free to share your facts about our totally awesome (and entirely made-up) country! And thank you all so very much for subscribing/following this blog – it makes my heart fit to burst. :)
Homer Simpson taught me the difference between jealousy and envy. I’m equal parts ashamed and proud of this.
I went to the dentist this week for the first time in three years. I HAD NO CAVITIES. When they handed me the complimentary toothbrush as I was leaving, I was so tempted to just throw it on the floor like a mic drop. But I didn’t. I wish I had. #regrets
My feelings about winter:
There is a reason that the villain of The Chronicles of Narnia is a witch who makes it eternally winter. It. Is. The. Worst.
It stinks and I hate it.
I really really can’t wait until scientists invent magic y’all.
I saw this guy on TV who is a bartender at an awesome bar in New Orleans. He has degrees from Harvard and MIT. But he’s a bartender. He seemed so happy. Am I doing life wrong? I think I might be doing life wrong.
I was going to write about friendship and how you need a best friend who really *gets* you and I was going to use this awesome example about my friend Mary….. but then I remembered I already blogged about it.
Read your old blogs so you don’t repeat stories is my new thought!
When I was 13, my brazen use of the word “boner” saved my middle school social life. Don’t ever underestimate the power of a “naughty” word to save your life y’all.
So, I wasn’t going to blog this week because I’m totally spending all my time studying for the GRE (aka watching old episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer) but then a part of me thought “You lazy ass, you should at least do a thought on a Friday.” And then the nicer part of me said “Hey you. You’re great. You should do a thought EVERY DAY this week!” So, that’s what I’m doing because the part of me that called me a “lazy ass” hurt my feelings and I want to prove to it that I’m not lazy.
What I’m trying to say is my thought today is that we should all be nicer to ourselves.
At our house we call double-stuffed Oreos “breakfast Oreos”. Get on our level.
