in the confessional

It's been a few minutes since my last confessional, hasn't it?? Great. Let's see what kind of hidden truths we can dig up here...

-First and foremost, I want to put it out there that there is a very good chance that I will not be gracing any voting booths with my presence come November. If you've ever met me, then this is probably not coming as a huge shock. Every once in a while I try to get myself really psyched up and convinced that voting is so so so important and that it really really matters which dude wins...but I just can't. Apparently my patriotism and love-of-country is more of the Fourth of July ilk and not so much wrapped up in politics and hate. So judge me.

-The other night I had a dream. I had randomly received a bunch of greeting cards, and most of them were Christmas cards (despite it not being Christmas-time in the dream), but one of them was a baby shower card and it was from Jen Hatmaker. She'd written a really long, encouraging note inside the card and I was so excited and giddy because she evidently "knew" me and cared enough to send this random card. And I'm pretty sure this is not actually a "confession," but rather a random tidbit I just thought of...but I am open to any dream interpretations you may have!

-Thinking about writing a book is turning out to be a great filler of brain space. Time and energy that was previously reserved for feeling sad and pitiful for myself is now (somewhat) filled by planning my book! I even have a little notebook I'm carrying around so that I can keep track of all my great ideas.

-I'm thinking about writing a blog/dissertation about something I'm very passionate about: Why Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is probably the greatest thing to ever happen to Wednesday night TV and why all the haters are totally wrong and stupid. And dumb. 

-And on that note, let the record state that I absolutely do care enough to go on rants/argue with people/compose thought-out treatises about reality TV (and vote for it, if applicable, such as in the cases of American Idol and Dancing With the Stars), but I do not care enough about politics to do any of the above for that. HAHAHAHA. It is awesome to be as shallow as me. 

-Since our friends moved in, Cat has taken over planning/shopping for/cooking all of our dinners and can I just say-- I don't miss it at all. I'd actually have to estimate that my life is 28347 times better now (and my booty 28193 times fatter). And if/when they move out, I am going to have to hire a full-time cook, because I never want to go back to doing it myself. 

-The other day I mentioned that I was closing in on 500 posts and asked for suggestions about appropriate ways to commemorate/celebrate that milestone. One friend suggested I drink 500 margaritas. I almost died laughing. But it's not such a bad idea. Let me know if you want to sponsor a margarita!! 


  1. I'll totally sponsor a margarita! :) Or two.

  2. I would sponsor a margarita, too! And also, what a coincidence, I was planning on hiring you a full-time cook for your upcoming 30th!

  3. Ditto on the sponsoring.

    Also, while I was not happy to have a reason for friends to bring me dinner for the last couple of weeks, it definitely made my life 28347 times easier, too! I was pretty sad when I had to get back to cooking dinner this week.

  4. Okay, I won't hate on Honey Boo Boo (although it makes me CRINGE), but I will admit that every time we watch my husband (born and raised in South Georgia) says "oh, I've been there" or "oh, I've seen that". SCARY - who did I marry!?

  5. oh my gosh, how did you land a personal chef? That was supposed to be MY dream!!!

  6. I'll sponsor one! I love that you are writing a book! Maybe we can be long distance writing buddies! (Your Elly in Bloom copies are on their way!) I have a journal that I carry with me where I jot down ideas for my book now, my future books, plot points, etc. Some are good (like Queen of Hearts), and some are really bad (See: Killer Whale Murder Mystery).

    Either way, it's pretty fantastic.

  7. GAH Erika! If I lived closer, I would insist upon a weekly, Wednesday night hang-out to watch Honey Boo Boo with you! She was a part of my midweek confessional too! I LOVE it and laugh out loud every single episode! You should come visit and we could go on HBB sightings. Many shots are taken in Milledgeville!

  8. Bring on the margaritas!!! As for Honey Boo Boo, I don't know how we ever survived without it. My quality of life has dramatically increased because of that show (at least by comparison!)

  9. I would so sponsor a margarita. Or two. Awesomeness!

  10. I will sponsor the remaining margaritas....BUT ONLY IF YOU VOTE IN THIS UPCOMING ELECTION!!!!! So basically I am saying I will get drunk of you vote. Brilliant.


I love comments almost as much as I love Mexican food. Seriously.
