about smartcookie

i write about what goes on in my life. i write about things i think are funny. i write nonsense. i write about bodily functions.

i have a boyfriend/husband named nathan who loves video games. we get along great. about 7% of the time. any percentage greater is purely a curious statistical anomaly.
aww i love nate!

and as our story progresses, you may wonder who i'm talking about.

aside from courageous nathan, our main characters include:
oh. and i teach dance and like accounting. the end.

people i read

knife giveaway

score! another after-midnight post to take care of tomorrow's nablopomo :) i'm not lazy.. just forgetful.

anyway, the reason behind the late posting is that there is a knife giveaway at steamykitchen! fantastic knives! and the winner gets to pick out their knife! it was hard for me to decide - do you go for the most expensive, or the one you would like the most. i went for a fancy handled, mid-price 6-inch knife.

wish me luck!

TLC is rotting my brain (or enriching it?) - i can't stop watching!

first there was half ton mom, then 1100-lb dad - and now, a documentary on polygamists! there is no way that i am getting anything done before bedtime. including write a thought-provoking blog entry.

better hope there's nothing good on tomorrow night :)

crazy weather

since when is it supposed to be 67 degrees in the middle of November?! and tornadoes? in the northeast? what?!

just to be clear, there were no actual tornadoes, but there were tornado watches. which is still ridiculous. in any event, none of this bizarro weather should be happening. hello, global warming - oh, what's that? you're real? no way.

side note

i really shouldn't waste a post when i could use it for tomorrow, but two things:

1. i am currently #1 in nate's fantasy football league he dared me to join. suck it, boys!

2. i cannot get the phrase "hot bed of political action" out of my head. where did i hear this? why can i not forget it?!

that is all, goodnight.

another close call!

almost didn't use the computer before bedtime because i thought, "hey, i should go to bed before 11pm." fail.

i was looking through my old photos and decided to do a snapshot timeline. of like three pictures. so here we go.

ONE YEAR AGO - hertel ave, buffalo
north park theatre

TWO YEARS AGO - traveling up north to visit nate's brother

THREE YEARS AGO - holy crap, this was three years ago!? (junior year)

FOUR YEARS AGO - ugly, the best fish ever

so cold

i love the fact that so many other people are doing NaBloPoMo that inevitably I will read one blog that said "I almost forgot to post today" and I am reminded. thank you millions of other NaBloPoMo'ers.

today was one of those days where everything takes so much longer to do than it should and hours drip by. actually, come to think of it, this whole week was terrible. i got lost on my way to work monday, wore knee-highs instead of pantyhose and ended up with them at my ankles on tuesday and thought it was thursday today until i got home and realized tomorrow was not friday. and then remember NaBloPoMo. it should be called NaBloBitchMo.

i am so funny.

me: most recent kate & nate fight just ended with tub of margarine flying across the room. in case you missed us.

j (old roommate): is the margarine ok?

me: mostly.

j: what was the fight about?

me: whether or not it was a good idea to chest pass the margarine container.

j: i sure do miss you two.

in other news, nate and i discovered the "photobooth" option in my laptops photobooth:

new music.. uh.. friday!

i was going to have a theme... like "new music tuesdays" or something equally themey, but since i am so great at updating, new music _____days will have to do.

today's new music isn't really new per say.. its from october 2007, but its new to me and probably alot of non-british people. i love this song's basic chord progression and adele's voice is hauntingly beautiful.

plus i'm a sucker for string lights.

so without further ado, here's adele with hometown glory:

i feel like this may be cheating, since i'm still up from last night, but hey - it's officially thursday, i can legally write this post and count it for thursday!

so lately, i've been obsessed with calendars and finding the right one. i know - thrilling, right? i think its because i just got my new cubical and its really dreary and dark (no windows nearby). i want to add some excitement in the form of calendar and i need to find the right one. i've been looking on etsy and have found a bunch, but not one i'm decided on.

last year, i got my desk calendar from ilee and it looks just as promising this year... but maybe i should switch it up?

daylight saving time fun!

exciting daylight saving time facts! because today is the first day of NABLOPOMO!!

1. it's daylight saving time, not daylight savings time.

2. according to wikipedia, extra afternoon daylight reduces traffic fatalities.

good luck to all my fellow nablopomo'ers!
