They’re bound to be tired of me by now

It’s been a little over a year since I moved back in with the parents…something I should have done after college to save some cash and pay off some bills but I’m stubborn and didn’t so here I am now. For the past year, I’ve taken over the “home theater” in the basement, and I’veContinue reading “They’re bound to be tired of me by now”

“My life is in shambles”

Not really, it’s just in boxes. But the above is what I keep saying, jokingly, as an excuse for just about everything. Didn’t you just wear that shirt the day before yesterday? Yes. But I have no idea where any others are. My life is in shambles. Why were you late today? Because I hadContinue reading ““My life is in shambles””

If I ever add a tagline to this blog…

I cannot take credit for naming this blog. That would be The Roommate, who said something like, “You should call it ‘On Account Of’ or something like that since you say that a lot.” And the rest is history. I also cannot take credit for this next gem, which is a beautiful, wonderful compliment (ofContinue reading “If I ever add a tagline to this blog…”

Top 10, take two

To kick off blog birthday week, my suggestions this week are a bit on the self-promotion side. OK, they’re all the way on the self-promotion side. I can’t lie to you guys. This week my blog turns two. Hopefully, unlike I’ve heard it is with kids, this two-year-old won’t have anything remotely close to terrible.Continue reading “Top 10, take two”

Too old for me to boss around

Today my first roommate, my former car-twin, the girl who once upon a time idolized me to the point where she’d say in her cute little voice, “I wiss my name was Lawa,” turns 24. Happy birthday, little sister. I love you. And if you’re lucky, I may let you come over and watch meContinue reading “Too old for me to boss around”

Just because we’re roommates doesn’t mean we give each other compliments

Him: Did you highlight your hair? Me: Yeah, like a few weeks ago. I think I’m having a good hair day today though. Him: Yeah. And you have makeup on… Me: Actually I don’t. Him: Oh. Looked like it. Me: Nope…just tell me I’m pretty. Him: Shut up.

Microwave Popcorn – 1, Roommate – 0

I’m honestly surprised any microwave I’ve ever owned hasn’t just stopped working one random day – the technological equivalent of throwing its hands up in the air and saying “SERIOUSLY, YOU EXPECT ME TO WORK WITH THIS WOMAN?” I mean my personal laptop – complete with years of pictures, documents and that one Dave BarnesContinue reading “Microwave Popcorn – 1, Roommate – 0”

Happy birthday, Rachie

This one is actually gonna be done on time, because, surprisingly enough, I am considerably un-busy this Monday night. In 2 hours and 1 minute (sooner when this actually posts) my other little sister turns 23. I am the oldest of three girls. Rachel is almost exactly three years younger than me, and as we’veContinue reading “Happy birthday, Rachie”
