Confessions and Questions

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Happy Wednesday, also known as, "Oh my God, I have 45 hours until my exam and I am not ready so I am freaking out." It's also time for Hump Day Confessions. WHOO!

I confess...

... I just gave myself more work to do in the way of a summer research fellowship application and due to poor planning, is going to probably give me an ulcer because it's due Monday. GO TEAM.

... I had a dream about diagnosing and treating rib dysfunctions with OMM. When I woke up, I was mad because the treatment I had done in my dream was wrong.

... I have to read 5 papers about hermaphroditic nematodes so I can write a proposal for said research fellowship. I am stoked! (#sarcasm)

... I ate pizza for dinner last night. Then I ate it again for lunch today. Whoops.

... There is still splashed apple cider on my visor from January, when I somehow threw my hot cider all over my car.

... I started trying to use Google+ again. I am not sure why, but I'm doing it.

... There is a baby in this Starbucks (with his mom, of course) and I want to snuggle him. Society frowns upon just snuggling a stranger's baby though, so I won't.

... I am thinking of changing my blog name because there is nothing simple about my life. I picked Simply A because I go by "A" sometimes but... it doesn't feel right. What do you think?

And, since yesterday was Blogger Men Tell All link-up for February, here are the scintillating answers from Ken for February's questions!

1. What is your favorite winter hobby?

In the winter I love checking the ten day forecast for potential snow days and then telling all my coworkers and students that I'm going to wear my snow day tie.  That way I'm not the only one that's disappointed when it doesn't actually snow.

2. Did you do anything special for your blogger on February 14th?

We went out to dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant, but otherwise we have a tradition of going out of our way to not make a big thing out of Valentine's Day.  Basically we woke up, told each other we didn't get anything for the other person, and then high-fived ourselves for being awesome.

3. What’s your favorite kind of candy?

Dark chocolate all the way.  Anything involving a combination of dark chocolate and coconut is even better.

4. Which Rom-Com would you choose to watch while you snuggle up with your Valentine?

Definitely not Love Actually.

Wife note: Grumble grumble grumble.

5. Who, in your opinion, is the best US president ever?

Teddy Roosevelt.Aside from agreeing with a lot of his policies (like trust-busting and environmental conservation) he just seemed like he could get anything accomplished that he set his mind to, not just as president but throughout his whole life. Plus he was from New York.

 So, go link up with Melissa or Becca or both! And what do you think about a name change? If you're a blogger, have you done it? How? Why? Tell me your thoughts!

  1. Apparently I need to watch Love Actually, I've never seen it but everybody keeps answering with that one! Visiting from the linkup :)

  2. Haha, Ken actually said that he definitely *wouldn't* watch Love Actually, haha. He thinks it's really dumb, but he knows I love it, so he makes fun of me!


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