Addictions, T.V. and pedicures.

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

 My latest and most recent addiction is Blogging. It's been two days and every thought, idea and encounter has been stored to my memory for my blogging enjoyment. You know you have a problem when you skip doing your summer school homework to figure out how to design and manage your blog. WTF? So not like me to skip homework these days because I actually love my classes this semester... but that's not the only consequence of my blogging addiction. I skipped class too! This being because of sleep deprivation. LONG NIGHT typing away and laughing by myself. Probably not the most sane way to spend a late night home alone. Hopefully with time I can learn to manage my life, school and thoughts, around my obsession with documenting my inner being and self through the miracle of blogging.
Today while talking with a certain friend via T-mobile, I mentioned her most recent fascination with my circle of friends. This is quite an awkward situation, being that she lives hundreds of miles away and hasn't talked to me consistently in about two years. One can't complain when they are reunited with a old friend (even when this friend and you have the most dominating and powerful personalities known to BYU and their basketball program). I mentioned to her that it's interesting that when people get bored they usually pick up a new hobby or sitcom, but SHE sticks her nose in my life and my friends lives. Why settle for make believe when you can get the real shit, right? I can't help that my friends lead an entertaining life can I? My only way of explaining how I pick friends is, you know the friends your parents, teachers, local D.A.R.E. officers and therapists tell you to stay away from? I SEEK THEM OUT. Why is this? There isn't enough room on the internet to explain the laws of attraction, and even if there was enough room, we'd never come up with a conclusion. All I can say is that I love my friends. All of them, everyone of them, no matter their shape or size. So I guess what I'm saying is, why get a fat ass watching T.V. when you have my life as a resource for pure entertainment. This goes out to my bored ass friend. You know who you are.

Pedicures can be a very enjoyable way to spend a afternoon with an interesting and racist friend. The fastest mathematician and observant person couldn't count the number of judgmental looks thrown between the two of us. After reading that you might think because I said "racist" we were judging our miracle workers fixing our talons and paws. This is not the case. We were judging ourselves. The embarrassment of an unkept paw can humble the most confident person. A few pointers for getting pedi's. One being, check the prices. They can be steep and non-worthy. Two, make a quick judgement on the channel they have selected for your viewing enjoyment. Three, Make sure you have clipped, cleaned and shaven your toes!

Seriously- I don't even care if I show up with hairy toes because I hate them for 'tang byou pow' -ing with their crazy alternative language, and talking to each other as if there arent guests in the room.

Work around my Paw hair.

glad you converted.

As far as reality TV goes...I love it- ALL of it. Big Brother 10 Holla!!! I am a stay at home Mom and drink up all the scandal I can get at others expense.

When it comes to a pedi, well we all know about my big toe situation. Everytime the asian girls start spouting off in vietnamese I know they are talking about my HUGE big toes. I try to tell them that my toe nails are falling off, not because of a fungus, but because I run. I know they are telling each other in asian "there is no way this fat chick runs".

It is all very embarassing.

hillarious. lets be honest though...your mom, therapist, dare officer and so on would totally have wanted you to be friends with me! those kinds of people love me. oh how i wish for the days of slumber parties in your room after watching 12 hours of sex and the city while eating cheese and chips...laughing at who knows what. let me tell you this though. last time i got a pedi was 1st time in 2 years! horrible right? but i gave her my feet to scrub the bottom and she said "ew" and then told all her asian friends, who came to see and then started talking bad about me in her language and giving my feet horrible looks...so sad.
