Bits and Pieces

You know, every time I say or think pieces, Ashlee Simpson starts singing in my head, which makes me very upset because, well, I'm not impressed with her. and that's me being nice. Except when I think about Reeces Pieces, in which case I think about how yummy they are, how much my mom likes them and ET.

Meanwhile, here's some stuff that I need to get offa my head.

Dear Self,
Your hand it not a hammer. Hammer hands is not your superpower, so stop trying to use your hand as a hammer. especially when there is a perfectly good real hammer 10 steps away. You only get two hands, and you have abused them enough over the years.

thank you,
me

Odd things overheard in my apartment Sunday:

Hey! quit eating my socks!
OW you bit my toe!
Hey! Quit eating the carpet. There will be no carpet munching! (I hope my neighbors thought that was funny too)

No, I didn't have a date, the bunny was out.

I was very proud of myself for covering my new plants with plastic last night to keep them warm. then I forgot to uncover them this morning. I'm worried about the Lemon Balm, she's not looking very healthy. But at keast they will be warm today!

I ran for 30 minutes on the treadmill last night. went 2 whole miles. Thus begins an earnest effort to be prepared for this years mud run. I also ate 5 full servings of fruit yesterday. I have another 5 just waiting to be eaten in my purse right now. I learned that if I eat fruit all morning I'm not so hungry for lunch. I also learned that fruit makes my purse heavy.

Went for ice cream with guy last night. I told him I wouldn't date him, am I leading him on by letting him buy me ice cream? I don't want to confuse him with hope...How do I get myself into these situations? Is everyone as confused by dating as I am??

Fruit makes your purse feel heavy? Wow.

I know that ice cream makes my clothes shrink.

You're only leading him on if you let him spread the ice cream all over your naughty bits.

Or something like that.

oh, ok. as long as I'm not letting him put the ice cream on my body, it's not leading him on. phew! I was worried.
Ice cream makes my clothes shrink too. That and pants shrinking gnomes. But in my defense, I did have a SMALL chocolate dipped vanilla cone. And I did NOT have a caramel carabou chaser after. mmm caramel carabou ice cream is yummy.

I have a very difficult time being "friends" with a woman after I've already made the decision that I don't want to be romantically involved with her. Now if we meet and romance is never even considered part of the equation, it can be a different situation, but for the most part I have to agree the following scene from "When Harry Met Sally":

Harry: You realise of course that we can never be friends.

Sally: Why not?

Harry: What I'm saying is... and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or
form, is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets
in the way.

Sally: That's not true, I have a number of men friends and there's is no sex
involved.

Harry: No you don't.

Sally: Yes I do.

Harry: No you don't.

Sally: Yes I do.

Harry: You only think you do.

Sally: You're saying I'm having sex with these men without my knowledge?

Harry: No, what I'm saying is they all want to have sex with you.

Sally: They do not.

Harry: Do too.

Sally: They do not.

Harry: Do too.

Sally: How do you know?

Harry: Because no man can be friends with a woman he finds attractive, he
always wants to have sex with her.

Sally: So you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds
unattractive.

Harry: Nuh, you pretty much wanna nail'em too.

Sally: What if they don't want to have sex with you?

Harry: Doesn't matter, because the sex thing is already out there so the
friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.

Sally: Well I guess we're not going to be friends then.

Harry: Guess not.

Sadly, Charlie, I think you are right. I don't think guy is going to accept my reasons for not wanting to date him, so he will keep having hurt feelings every time we hang out. Much like what happens to me every time T and I hang out. Except that guy and I have never had a relationship. but he would like one, and that make a difference.

Charlie, now I know why I never watched that movie. I hate movies that make me think that much.

GM, I do not want to have sex with you. I want to be your friend. Harry was full of crap.

oiztzor: the act of forming your philosphy on life based on smart-sounding dramatic dialogue from movies written by people who are as screwed up in the head as the rest of us are

Sensei, I don't want to have sex with you either. I think that the flip side to that movie is that in the case when there is no attraction or interest for either party, there can be a friendship without hope of sex. I have had those friendships.
