Stuck in Neutral

Caresse likes to call what I did today being a "Totally Lazy Slacker-Bum"... maybe it's just what I am y'know??

So today, I had every intention of being productive. No, really. I had it all planned out and everything. I was going to wake up at 9:30, eat breakfast, shower, do lots of homework. Ward activity, bridal shower, suprise birthday party etc.

As Monk says, "this is what really happened..." : so I woke up at 8:30, had some breakfast, then decided to snuggle under the covers because my apartment was cold and I was already an hour ahead of schedule. I promptly dozed off and woke up a few times, finally shoving myself out of bed at 9:45. At this point I decided to do my finance assignment due Monday, then organized my time for the next week. This was my fatal mistake. I realized that I could get away with not doing any more homework for the rest of the weekend. And so I didn't. Have I ever mentioned how fabulous I am at rationalizing?? I did shower. But instead I read one of my favorite books, Paul Fussell's "Class: A guide through the American Status System." It's pretty fun; I'm a fan. The residual effect was that I spent the bulk of my day reading on Wikipedia and listening to iTunes. Followed by drooling over $400 silk scarves and 5-digit birkin bags. Btw, Hermes has a really slow website. Just in case anyone was wondering.

I should really go to that suprise party. My logic for skipping the other stuff was it was really cold and pouring down rain outside. Not exactly my favorite combo. I suppose the other reason was I really needed to work things out in my head. There's a lot of confusion going on up there right now.


  1. Just so you know, you should call me when you want to work things out in your head. I am good at helping. Also we are needing an update on you know what. So give us a call today. If you don't, I will call you until you talk to me. :) Love you!

  2. You would think a store that sold 30,000 dollar purses would have a decent website, ya know?!

    I wanna know what Julie knows!

  3. so the "DeAnn" quote was really me, but i didn't realize mom was signed in until after it posted. so the post was
    "I want to know too!!!"
    i think i know but i'm so often wrong....

  4. Thanks for the input friends! Frankly, since I don't know who else reads this, I'm not going to write about it here, but if you really want to know whats going on, just email or call me. Trust me--it's not that interesting... yet.

  5. I would just like to say, your welcome. And Robert says that the Family thing was definantly what I think it was. Also he says to definantly wait on both of the things we talked about, The ball is not yours right now, and another week if you still do things before you try to figure things out. I hope that confuses enough people! :)

  6. Also as something totally unrelated, I thought you would like to know where you can get different backgrounds, I go to They have lots of fun ones. You can also change the color of your text and other things like that. I have a hard time reading the black on this background, but it isn't as bad as other color combos.
