My Awesomely Random Life (and Everything in Between)

Posts tagged ‘M&M’s’

These are my confessions

1. I had a handful (Okay. Maybe two handfuls) of Skittles at 9 o’clock this morning.


FYI: These new Skittle riddles are the best thing that have ever happened to me.  Okay, maybe not ever…but they are pretty fantabulous. It takes the stress off of sSkittles eating because of the fact that with the regular packs, I eat all of my favorite flavors at the beginning and by the end just have the purples and oranges.  Now I get to try and guess what flavor I am eating and not eat the best flavors first! It’s a whole new world, my friends.

2. I would never hurt a fly. Spiders on the other hand are fair game. I’ve actually become really good at squashing the 8-legged, beedy-eyed little buggers (I’ve allocated one of my Dan Brown books to do the job for me, the Acme anvil to my Wiley Coyote). I am not so good at clearing the bug guts however. My apartment has a slight spider-esque wall paper esthetic to it. I’d like to think that I am just very new-age design savvy when really I am just plain lazy. And grossed out.

3. I cannot not sing when listening to a song, whether it be on the radio, my i-Pod, the television or the loudspeaker at Target. You can imagine the problems this gets me into (I would like to apologize right now to my co-workers who have to put up with my daily karaoke jam sessions).

4. I hate the taste of mint. Abhor it, in fact. I do however love me some Thin Mints which is why for some odd-ball yet totally genius reason, I always eat a palm-full of M&M’s right before I brush my teeth. Mint=gross. Chocolate + mint = oh my goodness delicious!  I know I could buy toothpaste that wasn’t mint flavored, but then I wouldn’t have a “legitimate” excuse to scarf down the melt-in-your-mouth, not-in-your-hand candies before bed. Where’s the fun in that?

5. I have a strange fear of sneezing while driving. I once worked with someone whose husband crashed into a light pole (thankfully he was okay, only a minor fender-bender) because he closed his eyes sneezing behind the wheel. I always try to see how long I can keep my eyes open when making the big “Achoo!” which coincidentally, I also have a strange fear of doing. Thankfully the myth-busters set my mind at ease on this one.

6. When I leave work every night, I like to take the stairs. Not just because I got stuck in an elevator once, but also because the stairwell is like an echo chamber. When I’m all alone in that cave of a stairwell, I sometimes will let out the biggest burp you ever did hear. The way it ricochets and bounces off the walls…

Yes. I am a 10 year old boy trapped in a 27 year old woman’s body.

7. Am I the only person who thinks that sometimes, the days seem to drag onnnnnnn foeverrrrrr but the weeks go by super duper fast?

8. I’ve been counting down this work day that is seeming to drag onnnnnn foreverrrrr because it’s Taco Tuesday! The prospect of eating delicious tacos once quitting times rolls around can make any bad day a little better.

Question of the day: What are your confessions?

10 Things I Hate About Me

1. I HATE that I still sleep with my childhood ‘blankie’. Every night. Linus isn’t the only one who finds comfort in a holey, worn-out, soft and fluffy 24 year old piece of fabric.

2. I HATE that I always keep a bag of Peanut M&M’s on my bedside table, just in case the midnight munchies decide to sneak-attack me and I need a quick chocolate fix. I HATE that sometimes, I wake up looking like Picasso went crazy with a paint brush on my leg, a byproduct of accidentally dropping a chocolately candy piece or two in bed, shmooshed and melted goodness. I HATE that I find said shmooshed and melted Peanut M&M in the morning. And eat it.

3. I HATE that I keep…a spoon in my purse? You never know when you run into an IICS: an irrisistable ice cream situation.

4. I HATE that my wardrobe basically consists of Brewer apparel, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and tennis shoes.

5. I HATE that the one and only Kozmo Kramer is one of my heros. I HATE that he is the last person I see before I go to bed and the first person a see when I hit the snooze button, I mean wake up, in the morning (his beautiful mug is hung on my bedroom wall.)

6. I HATE that I wore mismatched socks all day today. And yesterday. Just because I was too lazy to find the correct pairings. I HATE that I just realized that most of my socks are holey. Great for going to church in though. I HATE that that was probably the corniest joke of all time 😉

7. I HATE that one of my favorite things in the whole wide world to eat is this. I HATE that waiters/waitresses don’t bat an eyelash when I order this off of the coloring book page of a kids’ menu (aren’t those the best though?! What a way to pass the time before your food arrives!) because they think I am still 12.

8. I HATE that I can’t help but get a little faklempt EVERY TIME I watch this. Okay, a lot faklempt. I’m talking grab-the-tissues, snot-blowing, ugly-crying faklmept. It’s not pretty.

Or this.

Or this.

9. I HATE that I cannot, for the life of me, do a cartwheel.

10. I HATE that I love all of these things about me. I am NOT perfect. Not by a long shot. But you know what, that is quite all right. For it is in these imperfections that you find character, uniqueness, and personality. It is in these imperfections that you find you. So go ahead. Be silly. Be goofy. Laugh at yourself. Laugh at yourself for laughing at yourself. I promise it will be something you love to hate to do!

Question of the Day: What are some of the things you love to hate about yourself?

Friday Notes

1. It’s only 3 in the afternoon and already I have plowed my way through 6 Christmas albums. Although Michael Buble, Bing Crosby, Josh Groban, Kenny G and Adam Sandler have been on constant replay throughout my house this year, I would have to say my favorite go-to is Trans Siberian Orchestra. Their version of Carol of the Bells is amazing! Take a listen 🙂

2. Today I got a bag of Peanut M&M’s that had no brown ones. None. I couldn’t believe it. This wouldn’t have been good news for J.Lo because as she states in one of my all time favorite chick-flicks The Wedding Planner, “I only eat the brown ones because someone once said they have less artificial coloring because chocolate’s already brown.” I on the other hand was pretty darn excited; brown are my least favorite because they remind me of rabbit turds.

3. I have come to realize I love singing in the shower, but not acapella. Wouldn’t it sound ten times more awesome if I had some music accompaniment, say a guitar, some drums, a tambourine and possibly even a triangle every time I scrub-a-dub-dubbed? But no back-up singers. A girl has got to draw the line somewhere.

4. I know that your nose is supposed to smell and your feet do all the running, but lately it’s been the other way around for me. Although thanks to my Netty pot and Vick’s Vapor Rub, this nasty cold is on its way out.

5. He’s cute AND he’s hilariously hilarious. Jimmy Fallon, will you marry me?

6. Oh my stars, that Domino’s commercial has me salivating like everyone’s favorite St. Bernard Beethoven. Thanks to Pavlov, I know why.

7. Speaking of Pavlov, I miss Psychology. And Milwaukee.

8. But I am oh so glad to be near my family for the holidays. I seem to have the worst luck when it comes to traveling (i.e. once being snowed in at a motel for two days, another time being grounded for three due to fog and of course the time the airline lost ALL of my luggage…ugh). It’ll be nice not to have to worry about that craziness this year.

9. Speaking of the holidays, I think I need a new party dress. I’m thinking something sparkly, something colorful and of course something with lots of twirl. It’s got to twirl.

10. I also think I need a new pair of footy pajamas kind of like these here:

How cute are these?!

11. I am sooooo glad it’s Friday!

Have a GREAT Friday everybody!


Great Googily Moogily…

There is a reason why STRESSED is DESSERTS spelled backwards.

Just saying…
