@iceberg My co-worker just had a baby and after lunch yesterday she was talking about diapers, and I said out loud, "UGH, babies."

@Gulf of Finland This is annoying and not gross but my husband's fidget when he kind of zones out to think is to rub his hands together and ultimately start making hand fart noises. IT IS THE MOST ANNOYING. Since it's a thinking thing it doesn't happen a lot when I'm around unless we're both working on stuff in the same room, and he's pretty good about stopping if I yell at him.
One time I seriously yelled "I AM GOING TO MURDER YOU" after the 3rd time I asked him to stop.
Sooo, back when I was in grad school eight-ish years ago, I had a gigundo crush on one of my professors. Apparently lots of other girls had crushes on him too so this did not make me special. BUT now we're friends on Facebook and he sent me this message yesterday that was like "I'm really glad you found me on Facebook because I really enjoy your posts and I find myself thinking 'that Oliver St. John Mollusc is such a funny, interesting girl, I wish I knew her better!'" GAAAAH! This was completely un-prompted by anything on my part, either now or back then, and I'm kind of dying of happiness. Not that I think anything will actually come out of it, but just because it's so validating to have a former crush be like "heeeey, I like you!"

guys guys guys, i am just so happy about this that i have no compunction about gloating about it here.
when i finally got to spend like half an hour making out with my crush-that-i-asked-out, he kept stopping just to hug me and mutter little things like "oh man" and "jeez" and kiss the side of my head.
it's so cheesy and yet i am so happyyyyy, i am spending a ridiculous amount of time just smiling off into the ether like a total nutjob. it's scary guyssss i'm happy it's scary.

This week with the BBs:
1. Dimples, 4am, wailing at top of lungs: "I want hot ice cream!"
2. Officially the weirdest thing they've taken to bed with them: ziplock bags full of pennies.
3. I am WORN OUT y'all.
@JocelynWest Yes. Voting Republican for moral reasons.
@codi_cathleen Mischief managed. ;)
I mean, Tom Hardy, anyone? Seriously, who is running People Magazine, I just...no.
Umm, you guys? I met Adam Levine once and got into a political discussion (yes, this really happened) and he told me that he votes Republican "for tax purposes." I mean, is there anything less sexy than that? Seriously.
@Onymous Hmmmmm I think carnitas is probably the right answer to this question.
