Oh things that we do...

There are so many things that we vow to never do or never become, but end up doing and becoming. I was thinking about these things while I was washing my hair with my cheapo shampoo, when I realized, Hey! I once swore to never treat my hair so badly by using grocery store shampoo on my dried-out locks, and here I was with suds of Pantene in my hair. Crap! So I began thinking of all the other things I thought I would never do but now do regularly. The list began to depress me.

Something I vowed never to do...
  1. Watch Dancing with the Stars -Enough said. There is something wrong (but strangely satisfying...) with watching washed-up celebrities try to resurrect their careers through the samba.
  2. Leave dishes in the sink -When living in the pioneer apartment (the apartment that was basically a cinder block box with none of the comforts of the everyday man), I didn't have a dishwasher. Every night after washing a sink full of dishes, I would curse the wretches who were so lazy, they couldn't put a simple dish in the dishwasher. Right now I've got 64 plates, 26 bowls, and 87 cups staring me in the face from the kitchen sink. As soon as I run out of room in the kitchen sink, I'll use the sink in the bathroom.
  3. Think those weird short boots that are creeping into style are cute -Uh huh. I like them. Yup. I'm disgusting.
  4. Be excited for the stupid Twilight movie -Agh! I hate that I want to see it. I hate that I'm overlooking the fact that none of the characters look anything remotely close to what they should look like. I hate that I care! Damn it, Stephenie Meyer! You made me care!
  5. Seriously contemplate murder -I am really concerned over my sudden desire to violently destroy the insurance company that declined my application and anyone associated with them. Blowing up the building wouldn't be enough, being that enough lives wouldn't be lost. I want blood, and lots of it.
  6. Like the weird anchor woman with the plastic face -I can't say whether it's her demented cheek implants or her Jackson-like nose job, but I like that weird-looking lady. She makes the news that much more interesting.

Yeah, I am mad at myself for wanting to see the movie too. Is that really the guy they picked for Edward? I am pretty sure I didn't fantasize about him!

Hailstorm said...

haha... Edward is the worst... and truthfully, I really don't like the Bella they picked either, I should have been Bella, dang it! but yeah... I pretty much can't wait! Court, don't kill anyone, ok?

Ha ha, I so have done pretty much all of those things! Twilight, yes, I will still see it, and even if I don't like it I won't admit it. I promised never to like pants tucked into boots (cuz that means skinny jeans, right?) but I so love it now and really want to go get some (boots and pants.) Gross.

Oh yeah, and I was so thinking I might go to Twilight opening night, till I realized that it was the same night as the Celine Dion concert I bought tickets to a year ago. I am a complete girl, huh? Twilight and Celine...

My fellow mom friends and I are all admittedly excited to see the Twilight movie...we're not ashamed, and we should be! I'm OK with most of the characters they picked, except Edward. Yuck.

Wait till you become a mom and start doing EVERY SINGLE THING you said you were NOT going to do as a parent. Seriously. Everything. Thus is life. Sigh.

Okay that is horrible that you like those boots. So ugly. They remind me of a witch. And yeah, pretty sure I'm excited to see Twilight and don't feel bad about it at all! Heck I'll probably go to the party for it too!

I don't care if I see the movie but it would be fun to see it with all of you! I agree about Edward---he doesn't look right to me! Ilove you MOM

You've stooped to a new low. I may wear cheap jeans but cheap shampoo, NEVER!

And, are you going to see Twilight with me? Do you want to dress up?

Oh, one more thing. If you start wearing those nasty boots that I wore in high school, we can't be friends anymore. I'm serious.
