ten on tuesday

As a blogger I get to do what I want. As a reader you get to read what you want. It's a really good thing we have going, I think we should make it official. Facebook official. Bring you guys home for Christmas dinner official. It'll be good, I've decided to make a ham.

  • First and foremost, thanks so much Yette for being an awesome swap partner. Turns out the Philippines are behind Ohio time zone by lots and lots of hours... thus it was morning there when it was night here and every time I talk to her I'm from the future. This amuses me far more than it should. Forgive me while I go shove more banana peels into my Delorean. Thanks. You can find my blog swap post here.
  • I got my kindle in the mail yesterday and its awesome! I haven't even taken it out of the box yet because my protector case hasn't come yet and I am going to be super careful with this one. I promise. Cross my heart.
I find it really ironic that my Kindle was perfect and tough until I ordered a case. Ironic in a bad way, like when you listen to the Alanis Moirssette song and actually find the things in it ironic.

  • my nephew is the cutest person on the planet.

  • I've decided that I will never be able to love anyone who won't read Harry Potter. I think that everyone is entitled to their opinion (as long as it agrees with mine...) and you aren't allowed to ever knock Harry Potter unless you've read them. Most importantly, you cannot possibly appreciate me if you haven't read Harry. He makes up so much of my weird humor that without at least partial familiarity with the material you'll never get me.
  • I'm getting some lovely sweaters for Christmas. I'm very excited about this.
  • Last night I made this awesome steak with mushroom sauce and a side of pierogies with mushrooms and onions. I washed it down with two amaretto sours and a bottle of Arbor mist. Arbor mist is really good, I know its basically juice and there really is never a good excuse for drinking the whole bottle of anything... but I was at my house with no where to drive and it's the week of Christmas. I'm pretty sure Jesus turned water to wine at some point so I think that it's all good.
  • The other day I ventured to Buffalo Wild Wings because I am almost addicted to that place (and Pita Pit... so gooooood) and something funny happened the next day. It wasn't my usual BW3's and on my bank statement it came up as:
  • Ellen is leaving in like five minutes to study abroad in Geneva for a whole semester. I am very excited for her but will miss her so.
  • I didn't get the job at the restaurant. Which really surprised me because like I said, I'm awesome. There was a personality test that I took and I know that is what made me not get it... not that I would actually know because they didn't call me at all. The problem is that there is nothing ever good about a standardized test. No one can strongly disagree, disagree, neither agree nor disagree, agree, or strongly agree on all the questions they ask. Why can't there be an essay? Why can't they just call your employers and ask? It's pure laziness. Plus, and I can't remember if I have said this or not, there are questions on there that I feel are extremely inappropriate. They ask some of the same questions my therapists office does... therefor they are taking away the step between my medical records being private and giving them self the ability to psychoanalyze me. I don't think this is even legal. And, it pisses me off.
All I know is that I still need another job but this week is not the time to worry about it. David, Ellen, and I have decided to have a potluck/New Years Eve party and well, there is Christmas to worry about so I won't stress myself out over something like that till next year.


  1. Can I just say that every time I read my name it surprises me? I literally jump back a smidge. Like WHOA!

  2. that is the cutest little face:) and what a funny statement...i love wings:)

  3. Oh how I hate those stupid personality tests that many employers require. It's supposedly to determine one's true personality, yet the best way to pass the test is to tell the employer what they want to hear. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to determine what they want to hear. True story: I failed Walmart's personality test. I have a college degree, and I can't get a minimum wage job at Walmart because of some bullshit personality test.

  4. Haha "bison appendages." Really?! I wonder who is in charge of naming the transactions. Now that I think about it, that might be a really fun job!

  5. Sorry about the job. I'd hire you in a second.

    Now I have to try some Arbor Mist.

  6. Hahahaha, bison appendages... that's awesome!

    Your nephew is totally adorable, what a cute smile!

    Any day is a good day for a whole bottle of Arbor Mist. It's grown up juice!

    Sorry to hear about not getting the job, I hate those standardized tests they give at interviews, it really is lazy and invasive.

    P.S. I'm totally coming over for ham! Haha
