Things that rock


My mom's fruit dip recipe

The new pull-tab tops on soup cans

My friend Amy who is going through a tough time right now. Amy, I wish I had an explanation for you about why things like this happen, but all I can say is that I love you, and I know you and I will both find what we are looking for someday. Try not to let this take your attention away from what's really important here-what's always been important-you kissed Kyle...who may or may not be gay.

Thin Mints (Seriously what do they put in those things? Crack?)

My parents buying me dinner tonight

80's movies starring Molly Ringwald*

Only working half a day**

The people who wrote to defend me against the Sarah-hater and who continue to come read this blog and always say nice things to me and who read this in the right mindset and know that I am just a silly girl from Cleveland who deals with the big things life throws at her by joking about the little things. I love that I can write about whatever I want here, and I never have to say "Just kidding!" at the end of my posts because you guys already know I'm kidding. You know that when I say I'm going to punch someone, I'm not actually going to punch someone because the last time I hit anyone it was my sister, and I was 5 and my sister was 3, and I had to stand in the corner for 4 hours. And I love that I have all these new friends who make me laugh and who I totally connect with even though we are all hundreds of miles away from each other. All my friends are awesome-old and new, near and far. I wish all of us could have a big party and get real drunk and dance on tables and make fun of the fact that we had to park 7 miles away because we aren't pregnant. And my friends who are pregnant and did get to park close would totally rub it in our faces all night because I am only friends with people who get the joke.

Run-on sentences

*I stayed up until 1am to watch "Pretty in Pink". Best line of that movie is when Blane (Andrew McCarthy) says to Steff (James Spader): "That's it, Steff. She thinks you're shit. And deep down, you know she's right." By the way, it was on Turner Classic Movies. "Pretty in Pink" on Turner Classic Movies? How old am I??

**I am so out of here right now.

80's movies with Molly Ringwald save my life. It is not possible to watch any of them and maintain a bad mood. I've tried.

I hope it's OK that I added a link to your blog from mine.

I feel fat. Sorry, that has nothing to do with what you wrote. I just wanted to tell someone.

I had a half day too! Except I had this morning off and am just now getting to work.

Ironically, from reading your blog, I had a dream last night where I was driving around a parking lot and couldn't find a spot cause they were all for different things I'm not... like "This spot reserved for Bow-Legged People" or "This spot reserved for Bald Men" and my favorite "This spot reserved for Women w/Large Breasts". The last one was subjective and yet I STILL didn't park.
Enjoy your afternoon off!

I appreciate the support--patterned sweaters and puffy hair rule! My only hope is that my next beau will not need to rely on a collection of recyclables to supplement his income...and by income, I mean earning $6 an hour (part-time) making pizzas at the place he used to work at when he was 16...he's now 28. Awesome.

Next time I have to go visit a customer near cleveland I will put out the all-call. I imagine my signal would be something like a giant middle finger in the sky. Keep your eyes to the heavens!
Hey Ammo, I feel a bit thick today too. Broke another dryer.

Toren- and I've been air drying. I'm screwed.

Anything in cans should have a pull tab lid. I'm ready to start the "Gid Rid of Can Openers" campaign

I could never figure out what the draw was with Molly Ringwald. She always looked like she kissed a hot curling iron or something. And her lips were not sexy like Angelina Jolie's - no matter what you tell me. They always just looked infected or something. ew. I just grossed myself out.

ew. you just grossed everyone out i think.
