Secrets Are For Everyone!

Vodka and Soda

I seriously look forward to this link-up every week because it allows me to be a little silly and random, which is always good. Also, I love reading everyone else's confessions! What can I say, I am nosy. Also, I love finding other people that do the same or similar random shit that do. Solidarity! So, let's get right to it.

- So apparently, we've swapped out Ian Somerholder for Ryan Gosling. True confession, I had no idea what this guy's name was and so I had to Google it. First, I thought he was the main character on White Collar, which I don't watch, so I'm not sure why I thought that. I was incorrect; the main character on White Collar is played by Matthew Bomer, who is also an attractive guy:

Then I somehow remembered that the guy's first name was Ian (HOW?) and so I literally Googled "hot guy name Ian". Surprisingly, that worked. I rock at Googling things.

- When I first saw Matt Bomer's name, I read it as "boner" and giggled because I am a 12 year old boy sometimes.

- I just got an email telling me to submit revisions to the last IRB amendment I submitted for our protocol... and I hate them so much that I am considering conveniently forgetting about it until the new guy starts. Sorry, new guy.

- On a related note, I have referred to the new guy that we're hiring as "Cheeseman" because he put "cheese enthusiast" on his resume, and now I'm really afraid that when he shows up, I'll call him that to his face. 

- I bought new pants and I am REALLY overexcited about them. I wear a lot of pants from The Limited because they seem to be one of the few places I can wear their short-length pants off the rack and they also now carry petites. I think I may have done a happy dance in my bedroom when I tried on both pairs and THEY FIT. (Bonus: They're the smallest dress pants I've worn in YEARS.)

- Everyone and their mother is enthralled by the World Cup and I'm over here like, "Sports Go Sports!"

This is also appropriate:

Yes, I'm aware this is football related and that American football and soccer (which is actually football) are not the same thing. But all sports are essentially the same to me, so... yeah.

- Today I found a $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble in my wallet and I have no idea where it came from. Thanks, gift card fairy!

- The other night, I ordered a medium pizza and ate half of it by myself. I then also ate a brownie. I was not sorry.

- I hate putting away the laundry.  A lot. I don't mind doing it at all, and folding it doesn't really bug me, but I seriously cannot stand putting it away. Don't ask me why.  Because of the above fact, I have had to tumble and refold many loads of laundry because Gershwin and Luna decide to make laundry baskets full of clean clothes their new favorite place to nap.

- I don't understand the obsession that people have with red velvet baked goods. I love chocolate, but I don't really like any red velvet thing I've ever tasted. What is the deal??

- I can't braid my own hair in any way. Not even like, a regular braid. I think I fail at being a girl, you guys.

- Our bedroom is getting to the point where the clutter drives me insane. Ken is pretty clutter-free, it's my crap that seems to take over the room. Guess what I'm doing this weekend!

-  The fact that you can "like" Facebook on Facebook is confusing to me. Isn't that kind of redundant?

- I am totally obsessed with the fact that my new car computes its own gas mileage in real time. It has become a game for me to keep it over 30 mpg.

- Random things make me irrationally angry. For example, wildly intelligent people who can't spell anything, people who pull right to turn left, people who leave their trash in the movie theater, and people who can't use self-checkout lanes and try to do so anyway. GET OUT OF MY WAY, PEOPLE.

- I spend most of my life being really excited, incredibly terrified, or both. More on that later.

So there are my confessions for this week! Make sure you head over and visit Kathy at Vodka and Soda to link up your own confessions and read everyone else's secrets, too!

Stay cool out there, my friends. As you know, you can't call in melted.

  1. Um I think we are soul sisters I can relate to so much on this post.
    Laundry never gets put away just in random folded piles.
    Sports? Umm go team LOL
    I dont know how to braid either...damn!

    1. Haha, solidarity! I have hope that someday, I will learn to braid. I have no hope that I will ever understand sports!

  2. If he put Cheese Enthusiast on his resume then he deserves to be called Cheeseman!

    1. I definitely say it was more of a compliment, but I also think it would be mortifying to be like, "Hey, Cheeseman, come look at this document..." in the office, haha.

  3. today i found a gift card to a local coffee shop and i was beyond thrilled! free coffee? YES PLEASE!!

    thanks for linking up!

    1. I love your link-up! Also, my husband reminded me that he had given me the $10 gift card because his supervisor at work had given them out and he doesn't buy books. It's not as magical, but hey, $10 to buy books!

  4. I didn't understand the craze for red velvet until I got a really good one and then I started making my own and they literally taste like velvet! But now there are so many imitation velvet baked goods and then I get so irritated lol


Leave me a note! I always reply and I love meeting other bloggers!
