Finish the Sentence…

JulietteAllie, and Faith are hosting Blog Everyday in July and today we’re doing finish the sentence. IT’S TOO EASY. I’m lazy and I couldn’t resist participating because that page in Cosmo is always my favorite. Oh god, I just admitted to reading Cosmo. I READ BOOKS TOO. Want some suggestions? Check out what I’ve read so far this year here here and here. Let’s get on with it…

Here is a completely unrelated but precious picture of Archie, the world's happiest dog.
Here is a completely unrelated but precious picture of Archie.

When I open the fridge, I always hope I find…

Cheese. All the cheese.

My favorite article of clothing is…

A $12 black v-neck t-shirt from Target (found here). It’s perfectly drapey and it goes with everything.

Last week I was really pissed when…

I was on vacation last week in DC and then Maine. What was there to be pissed about?

Come to think of it, I can’t remember the last time I was pissed. Yes, I’m one of those too happy people.

One thing nobody understands about me is…

How fast my brain transitions between subjects and how I nearly always fail to share that jump with others or make any transition during conversation.

One thing I don’t understand is…

What “the cloud” is and why my phone always wants me to buy more of it. Why anyone would pay $5 for a Starbucks beverage. Why N has never read Harry Potter and has no desire to. People who like working out. People who don’t like mayonnaise. People who don’t like dogs. WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?

That was way more than one thing but narrowing the things I don’t understand down to just one seemed crazy. The list of things I don’t understand could be more than a blog post. It could be an entire, never-ending blog.

The world would be a better place if…

Every man treated every woman the way N treats me.

If I had a million dollars I’d…

Pay off my student loans and set up a trust to pay for my siblings college educations. Then I’d invest the rest wisely and keep on working.

If I could change one thing about myself, it would be…

How much I worry about absurd things that could never happen. See this post for more on that.

Something that can always make me happy is…

We already talked about cheese, right? So you want something else then?

Alright, my heart sings for a good thunderstorm. Watching crazy lightning and hearing those epic booms just blows my mind. It’s like nature is giving us a show. Plus if it gets just a little bad, there’s that little bit of fear. Will the lights go out? Will a tree fall?

Something I’ll never blog about is…

My last name. The name of my place of work. Where I live. I try to be personal and vague at the same time.

If I could go anywhere I would go…

St. Thomas.

Because…

I want to be in a place where the sand is white and the water is so clear I can see my feet. I want to sit next to N and drink sugary drinks and smile.

If I were an animal I would be a….

A dog. My former boss insisted that I was one of the most loyal people he’s met. It was a huge compliment and one I hope is true.

A job I’ve always wanted is…

The one I now have. Today was my first day of work at my new job in a children’s hospital (hence the late night post). The only thing I can say is that I feel unbelievably lucky.

My idea of a perfect day is…

BRUNCH. Every perfect day starts with brunch. A nice long boozy one, with lots of bloody mary’s and Belgian waffles. Then hanging out with N, Archie, and friends. End the day with dessert and wine on the couch while binge watching a TV show on Netflix.

If I knew I’d die next week, this week I’d…

Fly to Paris with N for a short trip, spend time with my family, and eat so much food. I think I’d just eat continuously the entire time. All of the decadent stuff I don’t always allow myself like brie, deep-fried oreos, chocolate croissants, Herr’s Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips, and eleventy billion rolls of sushi.

  • So many of the blogs I’ve read have “pay off my student loans” as something they would do with their million dollars, including me. I hate hate hate hate it.

    “Every man treated every woman the way N treats me.” <— ADORABLE! I'm happy you found someone as awesome as him.

  • I’m going to have to agree that cheese is delicious! Not to mention that you answer, “Every man treated every woman the way N treats me”, is too sweet! YES to Paris!

  • Can I just say that Archie is adorable! Congratulations on your new job, hope it continues to be great!

  • Alex

    Thanks for sharing your heart.

    I have been inspired to share my journey with Huntingtons Disease.

  • I am so with you on the cheese and your perfect day!!

  • cutest response definitely goes to “every man treated every woman the way N treats me” …you sound like one very lucky lady! & congrats on the new job!

  • I do love a good thunderstorm too! (How does Archie handle it? Our dogs have always been scared of them.) But I love the sound of the rain pouring down and the periodic booms, the smell of the rain and the earth soaking up all the water – the best is sitting on a deep porch outside during a summer thunderstorm, where you’re dry but get to be in the middle of all of that!
    Congrats on the new job – no doubt it will be tough at times, but you’re working somewhere that will make a difference in lives – not everyone gets to do that!!

  • OMG, I recently bought that same exact t-shirt from Target. They only had it i in black. I wear it with everything. It is the perfect material and fit. Thanks for sharing. Going to order ALL THE COLORS and another black one.
