My Friend Is Engaged

January 11, 2008

My dear friend, Katy, got engaged on Christmas.  She is the first of my friends to do this.  I’m sure there will be a few more following her footsteps in the next couple of years, but it’s interesting for several reasons – of which I’m not going to list – that she is the first.

However, the fact that she is planning on doing this as opposed to this is a good indication of where I’m coming from.


Breaking Up Had Never Been Easier

December 27, 2007

Thanks to you no longer have to put any real thought into the breakup conversation.  It’s as simple as checking the appropriate boxes and an email is generated and ready to be delivered.  There are even clever sign off lines such as “I hope maggots devour your testicles” and “I won’t miss your ugly face” to really go out with a bang.  So head on over, end things in the most painless way possible (for you anyway), and enjoy your new singleness.

The Between Boyfriends Book

December 18, 2007

…is what I am currently reading. Over the weekend my cousin and I were talking about being single (as we both currently are), boys (naturally), and this book (witty essays by a Sex and the City writer). I would read aloud an excerpt and we would talk about it, laugh, draw a conclusion, and read the author’s solution.

An excerpt of note dealing with juggling a few guys at once: “Use nicknames for easy reference. If you’re having trouble keeping your love life straight, imagine how your friends feel.”

What amazes me is that my friends have been doing this for a long time now because, well, it IS hard to keep other people’s love lives straight. I’ve found the easiest to remember are those referenced by a country, personality trait, or person of fame. My favorite nicknames to date include: Jesus, Columbia, Princess, Diva, Israel, and Matt 1 (of 2 or 3, I can never remember). And, yes, these were all references to men.

Lesson of the day? Boys, we will pick you apart and pare you down better than the best of apple corers. Beware.

*Update* I forgot Tinkerbell. That is by far the best nickname. (Thanks for reminding me, Sarah.)

Sex and The City. The Movie.

December 6, 2007

Sex and the City movie

I cannot wait for the movie version to come out. It’s been far too long since the series ended and I have watched my DVD’s (yes, of course I have the entire collection) to the point of exhaustion. Some of them don’t even play anymore. But it’s interesting that even still there is always an episode that I can watch and say “YES, you understand me!”

The girls are completely whacked out for the most part (seriously, most of their problems I’d hope you’d be able to solve by the time you graduate high school), but it’s so easy to relate to them that it’s easy to forgive and enjoy their craziness. You’ll find me at the theater, Snickers Popables in hand, the day it opens.

Stick Figures are the Most Descriptive

Relationship Gone Wrong?

December 1, 2007

Revenge is sweet. But don’t come crying to me when karma comes around and punches you in the face.
