I’m all for accepting the fact that my boyfriend has a sexual history before me. HOWEVER, when one of the girls involved in that history starts messaging him behind my back, yeah I’m going to think you’re a little shady.
At least this chick’s not one of the REAL shady girls I hate.
The past few days have been fun. Our friend Michele is in town from California, so Chris and I have crawled out of the woodwork to enjoy our city. Friday, we did some exploring downtown. Michele reunited with Jimmy Johns (poor thing is deprived in Cali) and we introduced her to good ole Honky Tonk BBQ in Pilsen.
Yesterday, I had to work, but after work we enjoyed an always-awesome meal of deep dish at Giordano’s and went to the Beat Kitchen to see the also always-awesome Empires with Jon Walker. Can’t lie, Jon Walker was kind of weird. His band is good, but let’s just say I don’t think he sang much in Panic! for a reason… Empires was fantastic though, as always. And the Beat Kitchen was SO. HOT. The walls were collecting all the moisture and they were dripping water on all of us.
Now…I’m starving and waiting for everyone to wake up. We are going to Earwax for breakfast and my mouth is already watering at the thought of a vegan peanut butter milkshake with breakfast. Mmm. Sad part is that I have to work again at 1 and Michele has to leave. Everyone should tell her to move to Chicago. :)
It's okay, Wii Fit. I didn't want a high self esteem level anyways.
Since the last time I played Wii Fit, about two months ago, I have gained EIGHT pounds.
I have now made it my goal to lose 5 pounds in the next 2 weeks.
How am I going to do this? Drinking ONLY water (i may die without coffee and chai lattes, but oh well). NO MORE TREATS FROM THE BAKERY (also a death situation, but damn, that’s probably why i blew up). Continue with my hand weight exercises. Ride my bike AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Do my Jillian Michaels DVD’s. Less take out. More of an effort to eat nice things. Start running? The fuck?
I go home in two weeks, and all I can think about is how my first Christmas away from home, I visited and weighed 141 pounds. I weigh a lot more than that now. Embarrassing.
I get that Four Loko has a high alcohol content, and is packaged in an “appealing” manner for young kids and everything, but why is it always the one being blamed?
In the news, there’s the story about some 15 year old kid who drank TWO cans of Four Loko, ran into the middle of the street after an argument with his mother, laid down in the street, got hit by a car and killed.
The mother is now pushing for a ban on ALL Four Loko drinks and wants them to be completely removed from the shelves. What happened to her son is unfortunate, but calling for a ban is a little unfair.
Because there are many crashes caused by drunk drivers. It’s often included in the story that their bartender stated they “drank five to seven beers” before driving away. Do people pull huge public campaigns to pull Bud Light from the shelves? Is there a national calling to remove six packs of Miller High Life? Not that I’m aware of.
I don’t know, I just think it’s weird. They already removed the caffeine, what more do they want?

BAHAHAHAH OH MY GOODNESS, COME BACK HERE.
1) how have fiction teachers never heard of Miranda July? Or at least Jonathan Safran Foer? I thought he was pretty big? They need to stop kissing the butts of the 20th century and get into the modern age a wee bit.
2) I always knew your biggest passion was Prose Forms. I have telekinesis, too.
3) I may be able to indulge you in a secret….just because it’s been in Food Network magazine as a generic cake ball recipe so I can share.
