Shane: *picks up set of wooden spoons*

Me: Don’t even think about it.

Shane: Come on, I need a wooden spoon.

Me: Do you promise to never hit me with that?

Shane: I can make no such promise.

Me: You do realize that anyone who overheard that now thinks we have an abusive relationship.

Or a kinky one. 😉

Her: I think this tub is smaller than the one at Rachel’s.

Him: It’s just the curtain. It’s in too far. *moves curtain closer to 2nd curtain rod* How’s that?

Her: I can’t get the curtain open now. Much better. 😛

(We’ve been cleaning and organizing and decorating. Pictures to come eventually.)

Him: *reading over her shoulder* A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle? Why can’t it be a woman needs a man like a dog needs a treat? The dog doesn’t need the treat but it wants the treat and likes the treat.

Her: So in this analogy, you’re the treat and I’m the dog?

Him: Yes.

Her: Don’t touch me.

Her: *does happy dance after walking out the door*

Him: *laughs*

Her: It’s a *beautiful* day!

Him: Are you happy?

Her: Yes. And you know what that means?

Him: You don’t hate me anymore?

Her: Exactly.

Listening: ‘When the Rain Comes’ by Third Day (I don’t like a lot of Christian music but this is a good song that pretty much sums up my group of friends.)

Reading: ‘The Great Divorce’ by C. S. Lewis

Thinking: It’s a sad, sad day when the last of the Girl Scout Thin Mints are gone.

How to Annoy Me: Tell me that ‘The Great Divorce’ isn’t about what I think it’s about. I’VE READ IT!

How to Charm Me: Make me laugh so hard I fall off the couch.

Quote of the Day: Don’t be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after months or a lifetime, is certain for those who are friends. – Richard Bach

Random Quirk: When I set my alarm clock, it has to be on an even number. (Ex. 6:14 instead of 6:15)

Listening: ‘Time Bomb’ by Rancid

Reading: “Where’s the sobbing and curling up on the bathmat because it’s the darkest room in the house and because if you feel the vibration of the cat walking or hear one. more. sound. you’re going to need to have that toilet handy?”

Thinking: Yeah, migraine commercials are full of crap.

How to Annoy Me: Declare that if you make neither my annoy nor my charm list, you obviously are not a part of my life.

How to Charm Me: Send me a random “I love you” text while I’m at work. 🙂

Quote of the Day: Someone once said that dancers work just as hard as policemen: always alert, always tense. But see, policemen don’t have to be beautiful at the same time. – George Balanchine

Random Quirk: I hate shoes that enclose my feet. If at all possible, I wear flip flops or shoes that just slip on so I can remove them once I get where I’m going.

Listening: ‘Numb’ by U2

Thinking: Someday I will be a woman who has it all together. Who doesn’t spill coffee on herself the first day of class. Who doesn’t drop her math book in the snow. Who remembers her calculator. Who remembers when classes actually start. Who doesn’t walk out the door without her shoes on. Today is not that day. Tomorrow probably isn’t either.

How to Annoy Me: In an attempt to practice what I preach and attempt to love someone who drives me crazy, I will simply say “God save and bless you” and move on.

How to Charm Me: Attempt to convince me that my eternal salvation rests on whether or not I take the cookies.

Quote of the Day: Those who give up essential liberties for temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin

Random Quirk: It drives me crazy when my professors don’t fully erase the marker/chalk boards. I want to run up and do it for them.

Daily Photo: (Normally I only do pictures that I have taken but I found this on a friend’s blog and it was too cute to pass up.) daily-12

Listening: ‘Psalm 23 (The Lord is My Shepherd)’ by Sons of Korah

Reading: ‘The Jewish Roots of Christian Worship’ (George wrote a section of this!)

Thinking: I *really* hope I don’t get snowed in tonight.

How to Annoy Me: Cause me to have to slam on my brakes so that the open bag of pretzels goes flying across the car. (Teen drivers….)

How to Charm Me: Declare that the fact that your work is making you do a $1.50 deposit is “asinine”. 😀

Quote of the Day: I am not alone at all, I thought. I was never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas. We are never alone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the world seemingly most indifferent. For this is still the time God chooses. – Taylor Caldwell

Listening: ‘Say It Ain’t So’ by Weezer

Reading: Since this is how I’ve spent the past 3 days…

Thinking: Is it the sign of a problem when you use alcohol to take your vitamins?

Feeling Guilty: For showing Mikayla how to dip her fries in her Wendy’s frosty. That way she’s getting milk *and* potato!

How to Annoy Me: Decide that I am only going through the motions of concern and carry the damn box. (Rat bastard…)

How to Charm Me: Loudly inform our mother that the moon is “pretty”, not “purty”.

Quote of the Day: True love doesn’t have a happy ending, because true love never ends. Letting go is one way of saying “I love you”. – Author Unknown

Mom: I was thinking of putting your spare bed in my room and storing the other one.

Me: You do realize it’s longer and you already don’t have room to walk in there?

Mom: That’s true.

Me: Not to mention you are then faced with the daunting task of finding extra long sheets which are more expensive.

Mom: I’ll get Shane to do it.

Me: And they apparently don’t make extra long in flannel…

Mom: That’s because rich people don’t use flannel. They just turn up the heat.
