Anyone else currently in a MonDAZE?! As in, Dazed and Confused and Really Wishing It Was The Weekend Again? Samesies, especially because I know I'll be chanting "IhatemylifeIhatemylifeIhatemylife" under my breath this whole week until I emerge from hell after my last final on Friday morning. Okay anyway, what I really wanted to talk to you about today was –
Things I Didn't Mean To Happen, But Did Anyway.
I didn't mean to ... escape to San Francisco the weekend before finals, but my sister needed a catsitter and that's an offer I cannot refuse. Literally. Cannot. Or else my mom would probably yell at me. Also, it's been our credo to escape the weekend before finals. Logical? No. Regretted ever? No...t really only sometimes maybe ...
Exhibits B – Some Other Letter Later On In The Alphabet:
I didn't mean to ... submit such a large order on a retail site, but I'm currently on the lookout for cute outfits "for Europe" (my latest excuse for everything) because I'll totally have so much room in my luggage and everything.
I didn't mean to ... order so many oysters, but my roommate and I have been craving them for SO long. A couple of weeks ago, we were driving all around Palo Alto trying to find a restaurant open at 11pm serving the dang suckers, but alas ... we had to wait. Until now.
I didn't mean to ... also get beer and chowdah on top of that and get really, really stuffed, but happy hours, man. It'd be rude-o to behave otherwise at Bar Crudo!
I didn't mean to ... stop for ice cream even as I felt my stomach combusting, but – it's BiRite ice cream.
I didn't mean to ... drop another twenty bucks on a pedicure, but the window announced "Foot Massage" in flashing lights, and Massage is one letter away from Message, so I strongly believe it was a message from the universe for me to have my toes painted Barbie pink.
I didn't mean to ... favor stealing Biore nose strips from my sister's medicine cabinet and watching a few episodes of TV (see above) with wine in hand over going out to a bar. Trust me, my roommate and I literally walked to the bar, saw that contrary to popular belief there are people in a bar – people who socialize and flutter and laugh and are dressed nicely – and made a beeline back to the cats and Kimmy.
I didn't mean to ... catch a cold the week of finals, but the world is cruel unless I'm eating oysters and ice cream and getting my toes painted Barbie pink, and so the split second I took a break from all of that, wham bam the sniffles are here ma'am.
