Don't get me wrong, I'm quite content with my life, but it occurred to me today that my life is a just a little pathetic, and because I LOVE lists, I decided to list for you why this is so. Enjoy.
You know my life is pathetic when...
...my hot Friday night date is with a fictional vampire on CBS named Mick St. John. At least he's a hot vampire.
...I check Pioneer Woman's blog a million times a day to see if she's written another installment of "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels: A Love Story". So far, there's 20 (yes 20!!!) installments and she's not finished! I almost feel like I'm reading a trashy romance novel except there hasn't been anything trashy, unless you count Malboro Man suggesting they go back to his place (they didn't), AND it's a true story. Sigh. It's my romance fix and I'm addicted. Thanks, Tearese. (Seriously, no sarcasm, I'm loving it and appreciate you telling me about it.)
...I chose to stay here instead of moving to France. The Julie of 10 years ago would have chosen France. Now, this could be construed as maturity...your call.
...I can no longer stay up 'til 1 or 2 am without dire consequences. Dire consequences = moody.
...one of the things I like most about my jobs is cleaning hearing aids. There's something really satisfying about sucking out (with a special vacuum) all the gunk and moisture that is causing the hearing aid to not work. It never gets old. Or, it hasn't yet.
...the only guy who hits on me consistently is my 100 year-old neighbor who in the summer goes out for a smoke in just his slippers and boxers. Whenever he sees me he says, "Hey there, sexy!" (giggle)
...I cried during the Primary's sacrament meeting program. Just a couple tears. They had a couple dads sing with their sons, and it really touched me.
...comfy sweats + a soft blanket + a good book + a treat (preferrably chocolate) = a perfect night. Perfect day = all the above + PBS cooking shows. BBQ U and New Scandinavian Cooking are my favorites.
...there are so many things that I could put on a list like this, but it's quitting time and I don't want to stay longer.
So, though LIFE is good, it's also just a little pathetic. I'm okay with that, though.
