Time for my weekly oversharing...
Awesome: Going shopping with a new friend.
Awkward: ... who doesn't yet know my style. So she suggested I try on a maxi dress (I LOATHE maxi dresses on me).
Awesome: Because I didn't want to be rude, I tried it on... And LOVED it.
Awkward: It's from Anthropologie (i.e. costs and arm and a leg)
Awesome: It was on sale!
Awkward: But it's from Anthropologie, so on sale, it costs 1/2 an arm and a leg....
Awesome: My friend invited me to Triva Night at a cool British Pub.
Awkward: I contributed NOTHING. No, wait... I did lose us a point once. So I contributed negatively.
Awkward: Since I'm only TA-ing and not actually taking any academic classes this summer, I no longer have access to the gym
Awesome: So I'm taking dance classes to stay active.
Awkward: We had a sub in my dance class yesterday and it was laaammme-o.
Awesome: So I snuck into the regular gym area (shhh!) and used the elliptical for the first time in forever. It felt great.
Awkward: I needed a bunch of Medjool dates to make some recipes for Saturday's party and the store was out!
Awesome: I enlisted the help of an employee and he was able to find ONE last $10 bucket of dates.
Awkward: He had already opened it to take out 3 of them for a woman who didn't need $10-worth.
Awesome: So he gave it to me for free!
Awesome: Since my cards had to be cancelled, my bank gave me a temporary ATM card.
Awkward: It doesn't have my name or the visa logo so I can't use it a lot of places.
Awesome: But it does seem to work at grocery stores!
Awkward: I loaded up my cart the other day at 99-cent store (end of the month = no more Whole Foods for me...) and they didn't have a debit machine. When they asked for my card I handed this over, forgetting...
Obviously it didn't fly...
Awkward: On Saturday, when I went to the Farmer's market, I thought it was Sunday so I parked for 2.5 hours - without paying- in a 2-hour, metered spot.
Awesome: I somehow didn't get a ticket!
Awkward: HOW does our society not have a way to watch the olympics online for free yet?!
I don't have a cable subscription to enter in and so I guess I wont see this season.
Awkward: Helping a friend move... barefoot.
Awkward: I wore a shirt from a time when I phone-banked for a particular proposition and someone asked, "Did the proposition pass or not?" I couldn't say...
Awkward: I was asked out by a guy named Sage who is obviously channeling his inner Fight-Club-Brad-Pitt because he's a punk-hippie, who answers to no man and works for a fair-trade soap company.
Awkward: Boyfriend-Fellow is gone to the East Coast for 3 weeks.
Awesome: I'll join him there for the last one.
Awesome: Madre left my sisters a note when she went to use her rowing machine in the guest house... They embellished it.
Awkward AND Awesome: I had froyo for dinner last night. I eat healthy most of the time so I'm letting this one slide....
Awesome: Due to the limited counter space I have, I thought it ingenious to put the dish drying rack IN the sink like so...
