Fiona Apple's "Oh Well"
"My peace and quiet was stolen from me/When I was looking with calm affection/You were searching out my imperfections/What wasted unconditional love/On somebody who doesn't believe in the stuff/Oh well."
Absolutely perfect when you're trying to pretend the breakup doesn't bother you, and perfect for that wonderful day when it actually doesn't.

@OxfordComma A pattern for you. Flowers, hearts and/or decorative tampon images up to you.

@breccalynn 1.) Don't snoop.
2.) Trust your instincts. If you're feeling weird about how your relationship is going, there might be a reason.

Also, my dude brings his phone to the bathroom with him because that is the only time he checks facebook. Sometimes he "likes" my statuses from there.

@breccalynn I take my phone with me every time I leave the room because I have an irrational anxiety that it will ring and I will not be able to get to it in time. And I like to play Triple Town on the toilet. Not saying he might not be up to something, but, y'know.

@breccalynn I'm afraid to order things I'm not familiar with too. Sometimes I make a deal with my dinner partner and ask them, "Can you order something I like, and if I don't like this, can I trade with you?" I've done that a couple times. It's good when you're with someone who likes everything.

And I'm 100% with you on texture. It usually is more important than taste.

@breccalynn I have some serious restless leg going on and I got the "OMG she must be masturbating" thing too! WTF. Kids are so clueless.

My mom told me that hands and knees were the only way to wash a floor, since mops only push dirt into the corners. I spent many years disputing that (as I toiled away washing her floors) but now that I have my own floors to wash, I see that she was right... Damnit.

My worst floor cleaning disaster? I drove a fork lift into a pallet of u-brew wine kits. About 20 of them were stabbed by the forks, and each one had about 20 litres of grape juice in them. A tidal wave of grape juice came pouring out. My supervisor (the one I had assured that I knew how to drive a forklift, honest. Done it a zillion times. Trust me.) handed me one bucket and one mop. Longest day of my life.
