I'm So Excited!

So, how's it going? Good? That's nice. Sorry about not posting yesterday. I was in a really bad mood, and when I tried to write, the bad mood filled the page, and it was bad. Therefore, I did not write anything, and I am feeling much better today.

Thirteen Exclamations for Today

1. I got some (snow) boots in the mail!
2. And a bag that matches!
3. I am wearing the boots right now because I love them!
4. And because I am a nerd!
5. I am going to meet Stefanie soon (in a couple of weeks)!
6. I am also going to meet Grumpy Frump and Nat!
7. I am on a freakish internet-meeting streak!
8. I am kind of embarassed to admit that I am meeting People From The Internet!
9. Just like I am kind of embarassed that I have a blog!
10. I should embrace my Internet Nerdery!
11. Not that you are a nerd! I was only referring to myself and my nerdy ways! You are very cool! And popular! You are like a combination of George Clooney and a young Audrey Hepburn!
12. I have been really busy at work, so I have been drinking a lot of coffee, and coffee makes me really hyper! I bet you could have never guessed that!
13. I think I accidentally checked out a romance book from the library! I would have realized this if I had looked at the back cover, but instead I realized it when I started reading it on the bus and came across sentences such as [opening to a random page], "A blond brow lifted, and she gave him another penetrating look," and [looking for one of many weird romance passages], "Slowly his kisses became more languorous until finally his lips settled on the feminine core of her and lingered there." EW!
But anyway, check out the back cover!

Wow. That is a lot of exclamation points. As you might recall, normally I am opposed to such brazen and superfluous use of exclamatory punctuation, but in this case, I will allow it, as it has a purpose and is amusing. Also because you allotted one of the exclamation points to me. Yay for that!

Also, that dog? That lady? Woah. I'm a little frightened.

Glad you're feeling cheerier.

Snow Boots. I rike you. You make me raff.

Carmen said...

wearing your snow boots already. hope its snowing for you (and not for me!)

Lawyerish said...

HER FEMININE CORE. Oh my God. Why do bad romance novelists always pose for their author pictures with fluffy little dogs? WHY?

You crack me up.

And I am so flattered to be considered a Clooney/Hepburn combo, even though I am an Internet nerd.

schneids said... "accidently" checked out a romance novel. Whatever you need to tell yourself, R. ;-)

fluffy white dogs always equals a deep and insightful novel.

Pics of snow boots please.

You know what they say - Nerds of a feather flock together. I'm sure we're all geeks.

Miranda said...

Lol @ preppy true Nerds of a feather flock together.

We've needed snow boots for a couple of weeks now.

hey, don't you know that blogging is cool!

I second the request for a boots photo. I am in the market for some snow boots myself. (I am resisting the urge to link and pimp my blog in two separate comments to the same post, but I wrote once last year about wrapping Target bags around my feet to keep my pants dry as I traipsed through 10-inch snow from my house to my garage. I swore then I would get some boots poste haste, but I've yet to actually do so.)

Also, love the "nerds of a feather" thing. I totally agree.

I love romance novel lingo. It amazes me how many different ways there are to avoid saying "they f***ed."

Not that I've ever actually READ one, of course. Hee.

3carnations said...

I'll never meet any of my blog friends, because hubby is convinced bloggers must be psychos. Apparently psychos with way too much time on our hands, to write all these stories about children and snow boots and cats to lure normal people into reading and commenting. Oh well.

...and your first clue that it was a romance novel? Lady and poofy dog on the back cover. I'm just sayin'...

Jenny said...

I totally want to cry. You and Nat together and me not even in a nearby State.


Very depressed about this whole thing.

PS. A bag that matches snow boots would be a snow bag, right? I need pictures I think. We don't have that sort of thing in Texas. I could've worn flip flops to work today it was so warm.

Red said...

Feminine core! Yes! What book is that? I think my mom has it... yikes. I'll have to cross out the dirty parts to protect her.

And when are you going to meet ME!?

Nat said...

Don't be embarrassed, R! I'm sure that when you initially realize that I am a 50 year old man with an overbite, it will be scary. But then we will still be friends and drink coffee. Right?

don't call me MA'AM said...

HOW did I miss this post? Ack! Hilarious!!

Since we can't actually post pictures of us meeting (unless I find a big purple square upon which I can paint a face), we might have to get creative and take pics of our feet or something. ;-)
