Confessions #4

** There is a freakishly skinny man that goes to my gym who works out in a tank top and...boxer shorts, and thats it. Think "Richard Simmons" but underwear. And it always seems to be the same pair of boxers. How do I know they are boxers? Well, biker shorts don't have fly's. Totally gross. Whenever I see him there, I sort of follow him to avoid using ANY of the machines he may have sat on or brushed up against. It just freaks me out more than I can describe.

**I DO NOT like Jane Austen. I realize as a lit major I could basically be murdered for saying as much. But in the past six weeks, I have spent indecent amount of time reading all her novels, studying them, being lectured to about them, and writing about them. I feel like I just read the same book six times. I will totally give her credit in saying that she is a good writer, and an important one, I just have come to find her work "disagreeable," as she would put it. (Sarah, I know she hails from your neck of the woods, so very to sorry to express my passionate dislike, I still love your British views though!)

**I am scared of the dark.

**This semester, I feel like the dumbest girl in school...basically just concerning one class, but I am beginning to develop a complex. I used to be the girl who never shut up, but I don't even know how to contribute.

**I'm a mess in the kitchen. B was in Wyoming this weekend, as were my parents. I decided to welcome him home with some fresh baked brownies, only to make the batter and spill an entire glass of water into the batter...Apparently while B was talking to my mom while he was gone, she told him I'd never really been a "kitchen kind of girl" and was happier to run through the grass and flowers in my dresses. I gotta say, at 25, I think I still prefer the latter.

**I still have an obsession with Coke slurpees. They aren't even that good, but I can't help it.

**As much as I want to, I can't seem to stop watching "funny baby" videos on youtube. here are some favorites....

I find the skinny man more than slightly worrying, steer clear my friend!

JA - well we're all allowed our opinions, I don't like F. Scott Fitzgerald - so call it quits.

Ya know that scene in the first Bridget Jones where she's cooking dinner for her friends and turns the blender on without the lid. Well the Hubster always LOL and says that is me in the kitchen! Personally I think he should just be grateful I go in there ;-)

I always love a good confessional! Lunch with my hot window guy was great! He is so darling. And yes, I spent more with him than I would have with the other guy, but I'm a sucker for hotties! I'm glad you liked my post! Boy, has it been a few very interesting days!
