I will crawl, there's things that are worth giving up I know; but I won't let this get me, I will fight. You live the life you're given with the storms outside. Somedays all I do is watch the sky.

    • I would make a great vampire.

    • People. (Mainly Evan.)

Evan Patrick Cook.

  • My husband. Clearly I am in love with him. I even have a list dedicated to why I love him.

Jim Halpert.

  • The Office.
  • a) His sense of humor. b) He's so damn cute. c) His personality.

Seely Booth.

  • Bones.
  • Love his face and the way he is in love with Bones. Evan better look at me like that.

Sawyer.

  • Lost.
  • My new love. I don't know why I like him. Maybe it's because he's a bad boy. Or maybe it's because he's so damn good looking. Whatever it is, he is my absolute favo...

  • The time he pushed me down the Rims....and then asked me out.
  • One time, I was asking him what he wanted for lunch and he said, "It's your turce." I started laughing and said, "What?" And he said, "I was gonna say 'turn,' but I said 'choice,' so turce." Every time I think of that, I can't stop laughing.
  • The time I got incredibly inebriated and got out of my car and started crawling around a random lawn asking Evan if he wanted to see my butt.
  • When Evan talks in his sleep.
  • I should make an entire list dedicated to what he says when he talks in his sleep. BRB.

  • Playing drinking Jenga at that random kid's house.
  • Stealing a Jenga piece because we are funny. (Mine says Dicks.) She also stole an eraser.
  • When she locked herself in the bathroom at my house and upon getting out said, "Cute thong." Because I accidentally left my panties just hangin out on my bathroom floor for everyone to view. And this was at like 12 am. After everyone, including boys had already used my bathroom. Bahaha good thing they were cute panties!
  • When Erin kicked that girl in the leg -----WITH HEELS ON----- because that girl was being a beeeeotch.
  • That one time we ate at Out Back and our server was soooooo awkward. And he made Erin show her id twice: once to get alcohol and again to make sure it was her credit card.

  • Hot feeties.
    • This is the worst. First of all, I swear they expand like 3 sizes when they get hot. And, since my feet are 99% of the time always freezing, this is just especially uncomfortable.
  • When you have to sneeze but can't.
    • And so you look all special with your watery eyes that won't open all the way.
  • When I'm driving to work and I know without a shadow of a doubt that I forgot something...but I can't remember what.

  • You know how girls punch guys when they flirt? Yeah, I still do that. It's like an uncontrollable gut reaction when guys joke around with me. I have to punch them. Not hard, mind you. Then I feel bad. Because everyone and their dog knows that is how girls flirt. And they probably think I'm flirting. And I'm married....And that is really awkward for me...
  • One time, I bought this really nice, soft, polar fleece jacket, and this girl, Charene (ug, Charene) kept rubbing her face on it because it was so soft and nice. Seriously. It was my sophomore year, and she kept rubbing her face on my arm and her makeup was ALL OVER. Later on I was bitching to my friend while we were in the bathroom and when I opened the door to my stall there was Charene. Oh hey. Oooopssieee.

  • Scott Hamilton, in Pasadena, CA, at an ice skating camp. He signed my ice skates and he helped me perfect my axle. Love him.
  • Fog Hat. I served them at Olive Garden. They were hilarious and so, so nice. They tip so-so, if you're wondering. Also, I asked if they were a band because everyone made me, and I thought the guy said "Fall Cat" because of his accent. My bartender figured it out for me.
  • Cartel. I served them, too. They are not that big and they think they are the shit. Even though I do like them. They all ordered martinis and fancypants drinks. They tipped so-so, too, and most of them were kind of rude.
  • Something October Something. I didn't serve them but was serving the other tables near them. They are some "big" myspace band. They all had their asses hanging out ...

  • My dad is freaking crazy. He is the mailman of bike riders. He will ride his bike to work, rain, snow, sleet, or shine. My dad would probably ride his bike to the moon if God would let him.
  • My house is approx. 10ish miles to his work. That's 20 freakin miles there and back. Oh, and he leaves for work at like 3 am. So, I tend to run into him when I'm arriving home from the bars. Love.
  • One time, I did this thing called "search" during my junior year of high school. It was basically like Catholic jail, where they lock you up and steal your crap and do church. It's actually fun. Anyway. When you sign up they send out a letter to family and friends asking them for letters to give to you and the letter my dad wrote I couldn't even read because I was crying so hard. It's actually a song about this dad checking on his daughter one nig...

    • While Evan runs inside for something. I don't just go and do that for fun...
  • When Evan surprises me with coffee before class.
  • My Beauty and the Beast folder that I use for COMT 230.
    • Hi, I'm in college and yes this folder is from first grade. Pack rat.
  • Crossing things off my to-do list.
    • Like finding a DJ. Check.

  • Clipping my toe nails. It is a weird feeling, almost a hurt. And I just plain don't like it.
  • Washing my face when I'm not in the shower. Sometimes, I will specifically take a shower just for this reason. I feel like it's still not clean. Also, I make a mess. Water gets all over my sink and counter areas, the floor, my hair, my clothes, etc. You get the picture. It would be ten million times faster and easier to just take a freakin shower.
  • Driving. Evan is my personal chauffeur. I pretty much only like driving when I'm alone. And doing something by myself. If I am going to Evan's house I will want him to drive because then when I'm half awake in the morning and I have to go home, he can drive.
  • My hair. It takes for-ev-er. I wish I could shower and go. Stupid curly hair.

    • both of these things because no one knows how to drive besides me and i do not want to be caught behind, in front of, between some stupid idiot.

The cgk isn't going to kill me until I look out one side of the curtain OR turn my back to the curtain. So I can't get out. I have to make Evan come in the bathroom for me to be able to turn off the shower and get out.

Let's start with the obvious: OCD.

  • It is getting to the point where I have issues eating at OG because they don't use gloves to clean the dishes. I don't want their skin cells lingering on my dishes and transferring to my food and transferring to my mouth.
    • This is terrible, but I'm going to say it. If certain people are working, I refuse to eat there. I just can't imagine they are too terribly clean. And I want to be healthy.
  • Other problems I have with my current state of OCD:
    • Touching the sink in my house. It is not stainless steel, it's white, ceramic? IDK. But it is stained, and old, and gross feeling. Can't touch.
    • Touching the countertops. They are linole...

  • The time Jamie drank the fish egg vase filler ball things and then spit it out all over the table. Like 6 times.
  • The time we went to the Carlin and Amber was trying to get us all to come dance with her. First of all, the Carlin is where all the drug dealing football players hang out and shoot each other. Second, they stand on the outside of the dance floor and prey on young girls. So, she was out there dancing like a gay man because she only goes to the gay bar. Then, she came over to us, and started using me as a pole. Love my life.

  • The man who lives downstairs, Phil. (He is inanimate because he refuses to talk to us, make eye contact with us, or act like any civilized human being should. Since we don't know his name, I named him Philip.)

  • i've never, ever had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. when i was little, and that was like the only staple available in any other house, i would tell my friend's moms that i was allergic to peanut butter. and my friends thought i was allergic. and then one day my mom told them the truth. but i still never ate a pb&j.

Since starting my new job, I have found my favorite person to be the sweet little Norwegian alterations lady. She's like the Dr. Weiss of the DB.

I have a list in my phone but I need a more permanent place for them. And they need to be shared with the whole world.

  • "Do you know what they call Laurel? A horse shit town."
  • "On top of that she was from Laurel. I should have known she was from Laurel. They are a different species there."
  • "Did you shave your pits today?" -me
    • "Not before I came to America. They made me or they wouldn't let me in." -Bjorg
  • "You shouldn't ever be a cop. You like to point things at me and you would shoot everyone." -Bjorg to me. And she's probably true.

Let me just preview this list by saying, I am the worst at finishing a book. I will start it 16 times before actually finishing it. I get bored really easy. So, that is why I am always currently reading 104 books for 334 years.

Finished

  • Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim. David Sedaris .
  • Happy Birthday, or Whatever. Annie Choi .
    • PS. I also found a terrible misprint and I'm so excited about it. She totally typed out "abouthim" and did not space between the words. Fairly obvious; yet, I still found it.
  • Me Talk Pretty One Day. David Sedaris.
  • Boneman's Daughter. Ted Dekker.
  • She Got Up Off The Couch. Haven Kimmel .
  • Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea. Chelsea Handler .

  • When you are with someone, you shave little pieces of yourself away so you fit together. And one day you look up and you don't recognize yourself anymore.
  • Sometimes, I am Meredith Grey. And Evan is Derek Shepherd. And I push him away because I don't know how to accept things and work through my past issues.
  • "Bones break, organs burst, flesh tears. We can sew the flesh, repair the damage, ease the pain. But when life breaks down, when we break down, there‚Äôs no science, no hard and fast rules. We just have to feel our way through."
  • Everyone needs to have a person.
  • In another life, I was a surgeon. Because I suddenly know all about it and talk like I am one. Espec to my mother. Who is one. She just laughs because I honestly know nothing. But it's funny nonetheless.

  • Dead weight. I can play dead like no body's business. I'm so good I could probably win an Oscar. And if anyone should get caught by a carnivorous animal looking for food and thus find the need to play dead, that person should be me. Because I am so good at it.
  • Pretending I'm on the phone. People always think I'm on the phone.
    • Also, this isn't that useless, because sometimes it's handy to avoid eye contact with people and thus avoid any awkward situations that might ensue. And when I leave work, I like to pretend I'm on my phone to ward off any potential rapists and junk.
  • Stuffing a lot of things into little or cramped spaces. I can make anything fit anywhere. I dare you to try me.
  • Sleeping all day, everyday. Useless because I should get up and get on with my life. But I'm too lazy.

  • One time, when we were first dating, probably 6ish months into our relationship, his parents went out of town, leaving him home alone for the weekend. I told my parents I was at a friend's house and spent the night at Evan's. I was so paranoid that we were going to get caught and that was all we would talk about. So, in the middle of the night Evan woke up saying, "I just talked to Bonnie." (Bonnie's my mom.) I started freaking out because I thought she had come to the door or something. No. Just Evan being a dick in his dream.
  • One time, while watching a movie, Evan fell asleep. He woke up really pissed off and yelling, "I DON'T EVEN HAVE AN IPOD." Literally, yelling. Hilarious.
  • Other topics of Evan's sleep-talk:
    • Lobsters.

  • Travel. Seriously my least favorite thing in the history of the world. Sitting in one area for like 5 hours is so 2009. Let's get it together people.
  • Sales tax. What is the point of that? I don't live there. I don't benefit from the extra 10% I just had to pay you.
  • Our hotel. If there is ever a bad review on a website, just listen to it.
  • Moldy shower curtain. Everyone knows I don't do germs. Or dirty. Or mold. Especially in a place where I am suppose to be getting clean. So when there is mold on a shower curtain, I tend to get really upset.
  • Wake up calls. Does 7 am mean 7 am in Florida? Or is that just a Montana thing? Because pretty sure when I call for a 7 am wake up call, I want to be woken up at 7. Not 8, 9, 10, or never. Thank youuuu.

    • Also, if I'm drunk, it is 10 times harder. So can you please fix that? Thank you.
    • How hard is it to have a door like every other normal store?
  • Those people who refuse to buckle their kids in.
    • I swear. You are just asking for me to run you over or something.
  • Those people who put ME on hold. As if I have nothing better to do than for you to leave me hanging.

  • When my cat tried to bite me when I was brushing him, he said, "I'll stick that brush in your butt if you don't behave." To the cat. Not me. It was so funny.
  • My brother was taking his sweet time getting home, so my dad told me to tell him, "If he's got clothes on, tell him to just meet us there." Bahaha and to that my brother said, "No I'm driving around God damn naked course I got clothes on what the hell kinda question is that?"
  • My dad was trying to see if the washer worked, so he needed a hose with a special end on both ends, so he said, "I need a double edge hose. The kind with two females parts."

Since the previous tenants are dumb ass bitches, even though they're men, and decided to do a crappy job of moving out, I'm venting.

  • First of all, when you shower, there is a reason there is a fan in the bathroom. Also a reason the fan turns on when the light is on. The reason? So mold doesn't freaking grow on the ceiling.
    • So guess who got to clean that up? Ho yeah, me.
  • Second, in any other place I have lived, you are not allowed to just leave things behind. "Hey, I don't want these 33 fish tanks, this box of gadgets, this car window scraper, or this scarecrow. I'll leave them behind because I'm sure the next person will use them." FALSE.

  • "How did it happen? Were you chewing on Snap's bone?" (My mom. 7.7.09)
    • Clarification: Snap is my dog. Her bone is her rawhide chew, not her... you know. Also, I chipped my tooth. That is what "how did it happen" refers to.

  • That she calls me her darling daughter.
  • That she supports me to no end. When I thought I should go to Bozeman she was with me. When I decided to stay home she didn't fight it. When I was accepted to FIDM she was nervous but so excited. When I chose to stay here she was so happy that I wasn't leaving her.
  • When people are mean to me she suggests ways for me to be better than them.
  • I like to use the phrase, "I'll pee on your car" when someone pisses me off. She once told me that she'd help.
