And so it goes.
Sometimes, I hear from a boy and then I get really excited. But, then I realize this is kind of pathetic and I should be making my own happiness and excitment. “I’m emotionally self-sufficient, but like to make out” isn’t a very good personal tenet though.
This is proof of awesomeness, as far as I'm...

So now, even though it’s only 33 minutes after the Madoff sentencing has begun, I’m dying to know what’s happening.
This amused me more than I can say.
me: Popsicle obtained!
him: Good work. Mission accomplished
me: It was a very arduous task.
him: That makes me thing of an arduous aardvark.
me: No aardvarks were hurt in the ordeal. Though, I had to shoot an armadillo a particularly stern look.
him: He deserved it.
me: They always do. They are a bit acrimonious sometimes.
him: I love your vocabulary.
me: It adds to my allure.
Why yes, I am a nerd.
Few things are more satisfying than finishing an amazing book and having another one to begin immediately.
Thanks for the help you totally awesome people.

Sam Cooke. That's Where It's At.
At the end of a long day, this song always makes me wish I was coming home to someone. There would be wine, this song, and that swaying slow dancing you can only do in the kitchen.
I think about this every time I DM him.

Ok, I did it.
Email at the gmail or DM if you’d like. It’s a sub-tumblr, so I won’t be following anyone back. Also, let’s keep our fingers crossed that I don’t post to the wrong one.
I am, not for the first time, thinking of creating an anonoymous tumblr for my whiny crap about people in real life and actual emtions, that’d I share with internet friends if they cared to read it. [EDIT: I’d do this, because I know who reads this. And don’t want people who google me to find it] Thoughts?
I make bad jokes and laugh at them.
This weekend I went to the hardware store with my dad because he needed to buy topsoil. When the cashier rang us up, it was super inexpensive. Me: “Hey Dad, look! It’s dirt cheap!” I laughed really hard and he pretty much just ignored me. The best part was the look on the sixteen year old girl’s face when she gave my dad his receipt.

tehawesome: [snipped like crazy, on both end] The way you post your tweets is important. Must Love Dogs? More like Must Love Proper Spelling and Punctuation. Ok, so formatting isn’t that important but it’s something worth considering. I will be laughing at this sentence for the rest of the day.
I've been listening to the same song all day.
I know I should stop, because I’ll forever connect it to a time in my life I’d like to disassociate everything from.
I know I'm not supposed to like John Mayer...
But when I was 17 and starting freshman year of college, and the guy down the hall had this acoustic CD of some guy he heard at a coffee shop, I was done for. A tiny part of me will always say “yes, please” when you put on John Mayer.

MY TOASTER IS ON FIRE
Seeing this post by Kurafire reminded me of this one time in college, when all of the crumbs my roommate never cleaned out of the toaster caught on fire while I was toasting an english muffin. Despite being fairly intelligent* and having a fire extinguisher under the sink, I called my then-boyfriend in a panic. He was pretty much like, “What the hell do expect me to do from the car.” I...

My dad is funny.
Today, the Jonas Brothers were playing on the Today Show. My dad can hear the concerts from his office. I sent him this email: AAAAAAAH I HEART THE JONAS BROTHERS He wrote back: OMG they just came on……….SCREAM OUT LOUD!!!!!
daniellei: timestolen: funsizebytes: Blow up balloons. Or blow a bubble with gum. I’ve tried. My ears feel like they’ll pop off. Nothing. But I can pretty much burp on demand. So. What can’t you do?
