The first day back at workÂ after a long holiday weekend always sucks.
Today is no exception.
ohmigod, it’s been so long since I’ve blogged that I think I’ve forgotten how. My thoughts are all over the place:
Ooh, I should write about how awesome my trip home to California was! And how much it reminded me that New England weather SUCKS. Do I want to talk about how much I’m fighting that the Lakers lost the NBA Finals? Or how excited I am that fantasy football season is gearing up? Oh, wait, I kind of want to blog about my new favorite hair product! No, wait! I want to talk about Colin Firth in Pride and Prejudice! Mmm… Colin Firth. Wet white T-shirt. Ooh, he’s in the Mamma Mia movie and I have to see that! I haven’t seen that play yet, though, and I really want to… I wonder if I can get my friends to go see it with me? Ooh, on Broadway! I’ve never seen a play on Broadway! Wait, what was I talking about? Oh right, blogging. Hmmm…
All these brain circles are wearing me out. I think I’ll go take a nap.
Since starting this blog in 2005, I’ve struggled with how much personal information I want to share on here. My favorite blogs to read tend to be the more personal ones, and sometimes I wish I could be completely open about my life… but most of the time I am just not that comfortable sharing my life in such a public way. Sometimes I think about making this more of a catalog of my favorite things… but I kind of feel like I’ve done that in my blogroll. I love politics and sports, but I know that if I focused only on one of those things, I’d drive myself insane.
I like the process of blogging, and love having a semi-regular place to practice stringing words together. And I love the people that I’ve found through blogging. And so I’m here, with the random assortment of thoughts and things that entertain me.

Okay, I don’t want to… you know… dance all over the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart. But if George Clooney is really single again, I will do a dance of joy.
Not that anything would ever happen between George and me (I’m not completely crazy, after all). It’s just nice to know he’s out there, being a hot bachelor-for-life.
Here’s some eye candy:
To quote Soapdish, one of the best movies ever… “Yummy. With a spoon!”
When I agreed to go to Nantucket for this past long weekend with some of my college friends, I didn’t realize that I was agreeing to attend the kick-off for the sailing race season.Â I didn’t even really know there was a sailing race season.Â Clearly, I fail at being Preppy.
In spite of my inadequate knowledge ofÂ Preppy activities, IÂ had a ton of fun at Figawi.Â I ate a lot, drank a lot, and shopped a little.Â I got to wear a pink foam whale hat around town.Â And I got to drink out of one of the Figawi trophies!Â Â
All of this fun was enhanced by the fact thatÂ I used the weekend as a chance to try out preppy style on me.Â Â All weekend, I wore polo shirts, brightly colored tapestry belts, and pearl earrings and necklace, and I carried a Vera Bradley bag.Â I even bought patchwork madras pants!Â Â It was pretty entertaining.
I’m still sunburned and tired from all the activities.Â And am very, very broke.Â
You know what I love about over-sleeping?
Having an excuse to NOT take a shower in the morning.
I hate showering.Â Hate waiting for the water to warm up, hate washing my hair, hate contorting myself to wash my back, hate shaving my legs, hate shaving my armpits, hate toweling off, hate applying one lotion to my eyes another to my face and a third to my body, and I hateÂ hate HATE blow drying my hair.
So on days like today, when I oversleep by an hour and only wake up because Sneaky McTrickyPants called my cell, I love the excuse toÂ just wash my face, throw on some deodorant and clothes, andÂ bolt out the door.Â
I don’t know if my office-mate appreciates my smell though.
I love living in hippie-central, aka Cambridge.Â Why?
Because the BF gets things like this stuck under the windshield wiper of his Jeep:
Oh, you can’t read that?Â Well, this “ticket” says:
EARTH ON EMPTY
Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and try to have an open mind. The ticket you have received displays the facts about excessive oil consumption in the USA, which is directly related to driving so-called sport utility vehicles. By showing this information, we hope to influence the sleeping environmentally conscious people to become active and get rid of their SUV, and ride a bike for gods sake! Another thing you can do is use your large vehicle to carpool, or take the subway!! Find out more at www.suv.org or call 1-888-4-COMMUTE. After all, there’s nothing in the american dream about sitting in traffic in your car by yourself for hours on end every day!! Try another way, you might like it!
FAILURE TO PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR OWN BEHAVIOR IS HAZARDOUS TO EVERYONE (C)
The back of the “ticket” lists some of the negative impacts of SUVs and some websites to visit for more information.
The BF and I were pretty entertained by this.Â First off, we are environmentalists.Â We recycle, we have cut WAY back on consumption, we take shorter showers, we donate money.Â And he always carpools, takes public transportation when it’s possible, rides his bike whenever the weather is nice (assuming he has time) – everything the ticket says.Â So this ticket – which, hi, is printed on paper that will now have to be recycled – isn’t teaching us anything we don’t already know.Â And if we were the type of people who didn’t care about the gas-guzzling pollution we cause whenever we take the Jeep, this ticket would most likely end up littered on the ground.
That said, I love the idea.Â And I love that I live in a place where people care enough to do something like this.Â Even if it is a little preachy.
You know those days when it seems like nothing is going your way?Â And everything just feels so draining?Â And things that you normally whip through seem to take forever?Â And all you want to do is curl up on the couch and watch movies you’ve seen a million times and nap?
I’ve been feeling like that since Friday afternoon.
Generally I’m of the “fake it ’til you make it” school of thought -Â if you pretend that you have energy and spirit, you’ll end up feeling like you do.Â So I managed to distract myselfÂ for large chunks of time by hanging out withÂ friends on Friday and Saturday.Â But sometime Sunday morning I lost the energy to even fake it.Â
The Lakers sweeping the Nuggets yesterday cheered me up a little bit, but I gotta perk up some more.Â I’m going to see fabulous Eddie Izzard tonight, so maybe that will do it… I have my fingers crossed!
Happy Earth Day, party people!

You know what sucks about being a grown up?
Having to do things that scare you by yourself.
Like going to the dentist to get your two front teeth sawed off.
It wasn’t really that bad – my two front teeth got knocked out in a playground accident when I was eight, and I had two root canals, so there’s no feeling there. Except for in my gums.
But I’m terrified of sitting in that chair. I get all nervous and tense and sweaty. My heart races and my arms and legs feel heavy. I just hate the dentist. So I get into the seat, try and breathe deeply and steadily to calm myself. And as the work drags on and on and on, I calm down. It’s really not that bad.
Now I have two new (although temporary) crowns on my front teeth. Even these temporary ones look a million times better than the ones I just had taken off. But… damn. I have to go back in a couple weeks to get the permanent ones on. I’m not looking forward to it.
