Tuesday randomness

When I was pregnant (and even before sometimes), most of my dreams were romantic. I rarely (never?) dreamed about actually doing “it”, but my subconscious had long, candlelit dinners and romantic walks that were definitely leading somewhere. Do you know what I dream about now? BEING ALONE. It’s not that I no longer want romance, it’s that being alone seems even more rare – something I can only get in my dreams. (Co-sleeping doesn’t help.)

Over the last week or so, I have determined any book I read during PMS gets a rating on Goodreads of one star lower than it otherwise would have been. I have no inclination to be nice or give anything the benefit of the doubt.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how badass does it make me to have burned my finger while ironing wrapping paper? (I know what you’re thinking: 11. But honestly, 10 is the most cool you can get. There is no 11.)


  1. This made me laugh out loud in my office. I had a fight with my husband last night and prefaced everything with, “Look, my period is due to start at the end of the week, so a lot of this is hormonal, BUT my complaints are valid …” It’s like clockwork. The week before my period, I am a horrible human being.

  2. I swear I have never noticed any particular PMS issues, which makes me wonder if I am just cranky and difficult by nature.

  3. Ahhhhh. Being alone.

    Yesterday I was a bit shouty and told both Ezra and Iris, “NO TOUCHING ME RIGHT NOW. SERIOUSLY. NONE.”

  4. Oh my gosh. There is an 11 in Spinal Tap! Holy cow ironing wall paper.

  5. This made me laugh out loud! And then it made my husband laugh when I read him what I was laughing at.

  6. Hahah! YES! Being alone!!!! That is my dream. 🙂 and co-sleeping definitely doesn’t count. The Asian coleslaw sounds awesome! I think it was in the one with Kate Beckinsale (or the one with Blake Shelton). We love all things peanut so we liked it a lot! The coleslaw with spaghetti sounds good too!
