I Was 14 Again and a Sidebar

For the most part I consider myself mature for my age. At 32, I work full time, carry a mortgage, am in a serious relationship, and put money away in my savings account. Real adult.

However, last night I regressed to my 14 year old self with braces and crisply crimped bad hair. Why? The New Kids on the Block concert. Penny and I went and had a BLAST!!!

They are AMAZING live and so hot. The opening acts were a little suspect, but I think it meant to highlight the awesomeness that are the NKOTB. I mean, I really felt all tingly inside when they first came out and when Penny and I jumped out of our seats and started singing and dancing along with the songs, I realized that I am just faking the funk with all my adult business, and deep down inside I am still a perpetual 14 year old. Could be worse. :P

P.S.: I am totally buying the Property of Donnie shirt for myself from their website.


Now for the sidebar:

I have been reading the Twilight series, and have seen the trailers for the movies, and would like to go on record as saying that I think the movie will suck. It will never reach the levels of awesomeness that HP did, and I'm a little sad about that.

Shocker, I know. Hear me out:

While the story of the book would make an excellent movie, from the previews, I don't think that they are respecting the nature of the book. I don't think that the actors playing Bella and Edward display any sort of chemistry together onscreen and I also think that their acting seems stilted.

We will see on 11/21. I hope I'm wrong, but the vividness of the story that I have in my mind is NOT what I see in that trailer. I mean, I am still going to see the movie, but that is neither here nor there. Make it happen Twilight people. Prove me wrong!

I Cheated and It Feels So Good

Yes, I was cheating on the one person that has seen me through thick, thin and anything in between. I am surprised how easy it was, and how I don't feel remorse for it. Usually I am wracked with guilt and tend to stay away from anyone similar, but I couldn't hold it anymore. I think that it was over a long time ago, and he gave me the courage to admit it.

So last night, I told him that it was over. He took it well. It was time. We'll still see each other from time to time, on special days, and maybe if I need some comfort. We made a plan to see some movies together. I will always hold a special place in my heart for him, but I have moved on.

To him. The hottest hottie that ever hotted. Hot damn, I've never felt like this before. Well I have, but never like this. I realize now that the old boy was a school-yard crush. He has become my everything. In short I have become so obsessed in a short time. I want to be with him all the time. I was considering taking a day off from work to be with him. Crazy I know.

You know what though? He will never feel the same about me. He already has too many girls after him, so I will be content to view his escapades from afar. :(

So Harry, I'm sorry that it had to end this way, but I'm with Edward now. Stop looking at me sadly from the bookshelf. I saw you trying to remove your dust cover, so that I would be enticed back. Those tricks will never work on me! I have made my decision and hope you understand. Dirty did.

Caution! Your Eyes May Bleed!

I was minding my own business today, standing waitng for the deli guy to make my scrumptious sandwich of mozzarella and tomato with pesto sauce on foccaccia bread, when I looked down and my eyes were assaulted by this:


Last time I checked it was 2008, right? Right? WTF is someone doing buying acid washed jeans and WHITE slouchy boots that tie? Maybe I'm backwards fashion-wise, but this girl didn't look old enough to be BORN in the 80's, let alone love the style so much that she needed to bring it back. Maybe it's just me?

P.S.: aren't you jealous of my super stealth picture snappin' skillz? I know you are. :)

Can a Bitch Get a Good Nights Sleep?

Since I started dating Dirty, I 've known of his massive snoring issue. Now I can deal with snoring, I'm a pretty good sleeper, but since our vacation to South America earlier this year, his snoring has been out of control, so much to the point where we have started sleeping apart when we are together because I cannot get a full night's sleep in the same bed.

I have been bugging, OK NAGGING, him to go get a sleep test. I am convinced that he has sleep apnea; he will start gasping for breath in the middle of the night, and wakes up with no recollection of it. 2 weeks ago was the last straw. He was sleeping in the second bedroom at my apartment and I woke up because I heard him gasping for air. When I went into the room he was covered in sweat, and still dead asleep. I tried for almost 10 minutes to wake him up gently, so as not to shock him awake, but finally after watching him turn purple, I started shaking him like crazy. He woke up, and didn't realize that he was almost choking to death.

The next morning I made him an appointment for a sleep test. Long story short, he does have apnea. During the 8 hour test, he had 220 sleep interruptions. The standard for adults is between 8-10 per night. So, yeah. He went for 2 follow-up examinations and in 2 weeks he will be fitted for a CPAP machine. Thank god. I was envisioning separate bedrooms for the rest of my life. Where would I put my feet if they got cold?

I am excited now to be able to share the bed again. I was starting to feel a little dirty, you know, get laid and get out. I will say that Dirty has been very understanding about being banished to the Aerobed, especially since it is a twin size. I'm sure that waking him up with a BJ doesn't figure into that equation at all. ;)
