Thats What She Said

I'm supposed to be doing something else right now.

Balancing Act March 30, 2007

Filed under: *i joined the what now? — thats what she said @ 8:38 am

How big is my backpack?  Or; Things I will miss:

  • Cheese
  • My family (I assume I will be communicating with my family during my absence—I don’t think the same can be said for cheese.  In case anyone was wondering about my priorities.  Oh, and I’m a cold-hearted wench.)
  • Speaking English
  • Being quippy (see speaking English)
  • Winston Churchill
  • Some television (America’s Next Top Model!  Lost!  No Reservations! The Daily Show!)
  • Friends who have known me for more than three months
  • Driving
  • Previews (Often I like them more than the actual movies they represent)
  • Microwave popcorn
  • Microwaves
  • Netflix
  • The Seattle Public Library System (Books!  For Free!!)
  • Yarn stores
  • Flushing
  • Target
  • Google/Wikipedia
  • Summer in the NW
  • Office supply stores
  • Magazines
  • Being able to spontaneously decide to dye my hair or bake a pie.  (I don’t know that I’ve ever in my life spontaneously decided to bake a pie, but I think maybe knowing that I CAN’T do so might make me want to.  Maybe.  I’ll keep you posted on this one.)
  • Toast
  • Microbrews

I’m out!  Or; Things I will not miss:

  • Commercials
  • Parking
  • Driving (I know I just said I would miss it.  I’m conflicted about this one.  Sometimes it’s great, sometimes its awful.  Much like reality TV and French accents.)
  • My cubicle
  • QFC
  • Fox ‘News’
  • Malls

Random things I think are funny!  Or; This part has nothing to do with the rest of the post:

  • That part in Fletch when Chevy Chase says “Don’t talk to me like that ass-face, I don’t work for you yet.” 
  • This picture:

That first list is longer than I thought it would be (and by no means complete).  Once I started it I couldn’t seem to stop.  I know that I am giving all that up (TEMPORARILY) for what will be an amazing experience.  Its just that right now ‘amazing experience’ is sort of a vague phrase.  

But I tell you what—not having to look at Bill O’Reily’s angry mug for 2 years might be worth the entire experience.  Forgetting he exists might be the only thing worth giving up beer and cheese.

    Yay SPL! And can you send cheese in a care package? If you can, I will do so for you.

    Kraft singles, maybe.

    if it makes you feel any better, my only class that isn’t online is on wednesday. I will be missing ANTM for the rest of the season :( thank god for reruns—-
    and hairspray.

  4. Kit Kat – I just want you to know that it took me until THIS MORNING to figure out what SPL meant. Am I really the best option to represent America to the far corners of the world?

    And yes to the Kraft Singles. Yes PLEASE.

  5. Joel Says:

    Winston Churchill?

  6. I named my cat Winston Churchill. Because he is a very eloquent drunk.
