Wednesday Thoughts

My foot's been hurting for the last several weeks. I don't know what I did to it but I'm hoping it's fractured because I'm bored with all my other problems.

About one minute into the new Maroon 5 song, "Moves like Jagger," I knew I had to either embrace it or turn it off right then and there because I knew that if I kept listening, I would never get it out of my head. I made a decision to embrace it and I can't go back, even if it means singing that song in my head until the day I die. I would advise you to listen to it at your own peril. I really liked it for about 36 hours but I already feel myself turning on it. I'm not even going to link to it - that's the kind of friend I am.

I'm still watching a lot of The Brady Bunch these days. I'm going through a Brady Bunch phase - I'm sure I'll get tired of it soon. I just got season four which means we'll be heading off on our Hawaiian vacation soon. I have so much more to say about the Brady's, but I'll get to that in a later post. For now all I'll say is this: Greg made some very unfortunate wardrobe decisions.

NO, Greg!!! NOOOO!!!!!! Tassles? Strings?

But other than that, Greg is pretty groovy.

In other thoughts, pretty much the whole country felt an earthquake yesterday 'cept me. I must have a low center of gravity like Anne Veal (Arrested Development joke in case you're not in the know). My coworker, Justin, felt it but at first he thought he was just jittery from his allergy medicine. He didn't realize his life was in danger until someone told him later. That's how strong it was in Michigan.

I'm on day three of daily posts and I feel some truths trying to leak out but I'm trying to hold them at bay - truths like the fact that I'm not in a good mood every day, and I get overwhelmed with things sometimes, and I think I might be slightly lactose intolerant. But those things are all top secret so I hope they don't leak out.

Happy Wednesday.

"Way to plant, Ann!"

I'm glad your secrets didn't leak out. That would've been SO embarrassing! I felt the same way about "Moves Like Jagger" but am still loving it. That may be because I listen to it rather infrequently, but still. And as for Greg's wardrobe words. Especially the blue shirt!!! That's a girl's shirt!!

I hope your foot's better soon!

Doesn't anybody else think Jagger's moves are creepy? I can't get that out of my head when I'm listening to the song, so it helps me from over-doing it. :)

I hope your foot gets better soon! And I love the Brady Bunch!

My uneducated foot problem... a cyst. Remember Christiansen? Then again, we've been 29 for a little longer than the average bear:D

"Moves like Jagger" is awesome. And embarrassing all at the same time. Kind of like the time I realized I was listening to "Footlose" really loud with my windows down.

Your secret's safe with me.

I love that you are posting every day! Makes me happy.

(Also, let's pretend that 30+ thing never happened... and still be blog friends?)

Haha, Kara, of course we can! I wasn't at all offended. I already know I'm doomed (haha, I'm kidding)! No worries though, for real! I love your blog!!

Haha, you're bored with your other problems so you want a fracture. Hilarious. I can understand, I was somewhat glad I strained my back today, just so I had a good excuse to go get a massage.
Though your low center of gravity can't be the reason you didn't feel the quake. I didn't feel it and I'm 6'2, and am of course so built in the upper body that I sway like Judge Doom from Roger Rabbit after he gets flattetened paper thin.
And if it makes you feel any better, I was totally snappish today until I sat in my front seat and meditated the bad mood to sleep.
