  • john krasinski - partly because he plays jim, and from what I've seen of him on talk shows and whatnot, he is actually not too different from jim. and he dresses very nicely.
  • milo ventimiglia - pretty much only because I have some serious Jess+Rory love.

the not so nice ones:

  • if there was a girl who had your personality, and looked like So-and-So, she would be perfect
  • something like, "guys love girls with glasses" [of course, being sarcastic]

the nice ones:

  • your dimples are amazing [I only have one dimple, but I will take it]
  • you are so beautiful that I am simply surprised that you still have the capacity to be flattered after all these years
  • you have beautiful skin (x2!)
  • if there was an "I like you" button on facebook, I'd press it for you.
  • so many good lookin girls at home with no dates. guys never realize this. I remember being in high school thinkin all the pretty girls had dates every Friday. that's a myth.

  • #632: Slowing Down
    • Time is an illusion.

Baby, we’re all just spinning, gninnips, spinning.

Electrons spinning in our tall, fleshy bodies, spinning on our big, wet rock, spinning in our bright, white solar system, spinning in our deep, dark galaxy, spinning in our brain-bustingly big universe.

Listen, this never ending swirly-twirly headtrip can be a bit much sometimes, so we try to place some delicate order on our bumpy, chaotic lives. Yes, we tack calendars on our kitchen cabinets with organized checkerboards of days and weeks and months. We make plans for Saturday night, sleep in on Sunday, and head to work Monday morning. See, now instead of swirling and twirling, we’ve got minutes and hours and days and weeks and months and years...

just ideas. I'm not sure if I want/need/can go this strict right now. and I will be a lot more in control when I'm the only one who's doing the shopping.

  • no soda, not even diet
  • no artificial sweeteners/no sugar?
  • fruit, vegetable, protein at every meal
  • no meat? or maybe just no red meat, no processed meat
  • only whole grains/no white stuff
  • no fast food
  • eat more bananas
  • don't have sweets or junk food in the house. if it's there, I'll eat it. if I need a treat, get a single serving.
  • use coupons/buy less - I can get better stuff that way without spending a ton
  • recognize when you are full - don't eat more because you think you should, or because it's there.
  • always get a salad when it's there!
