On Light-ish, Hippie-ish, Side Dish Ish/Help

Gratins are the way to go. I made one last week and ate it every day for breakfast with a poached egg.

On Tony and Carmela Forever

I was just lamenting to my bf that how no matter what, even if I finally watch the "The Wire" like everyone is telling me to, Sopranos will always be THE.BEST.EVER. Always. I have a bizarre sentimental attachment to that show. This might sound weird, but my parents and I kind of bonded over it? I was in high school and it was our Sunday tradition. Order food in, turn on Sopranos, ignore the world around us for the next hour. Even though I was the same age as Meadow in the show, I always thought she was bitchy. Adrianna! Love her always.

On IUDs, or A Detailed Guide to Long-Term Sperm Scarecrows

Things that make IUD insertion better: 1. Vodka screwdriver before doc. appt. 2. Valium.
Seriously, when I balked the first time I went in for my Mirena, my doc offered to write me a prescription for a couple pills to chill me out for the next time. Love her!
Now, 2 years later...it's OK. Yes, I still have it, but I think it's interfered with my sex life. I feel it, my ltr bf feels it...sometimes it just HURTS after sex (not always, but sometimes). But the advantages are huge, not having to remember/take (and pay for!) a pill everyday, my periods are practically nada. So...I don't know. I have a gyno appt coming up, a serious heart-to-heart with my doc is on the agenda.

On Reverse Bucket List

Call me a crazy hippie tree-hugger, but being alone in nature is one of the best ways I regain my sanity. Curse this evil Daylight Savings Time! It ruins my post-work hikes for a solid 4 months. (Yes I've tried hiking in the dark and yes I thought I broke both of my ankles and was going to get eaten alive/get raped. So no mo' of that.)
But fuck Vegas. Fuck that place.

On Hilfiger Insane Sale?

I can't take this anymore. The sales this year are killing me and making my credit card company very very happy.
