so..on wednesday, as i drove home from work to pick up my baseball glove that i’d forgotten at home and then as i got on the highway only to find, not one, but two accidents on the small stretch of highway i was on that made me late for my game…i got to thinking…these are the kind of things that only happen to me

…like when i finally get myself an umbrella, after 4,500 times of getting caught in the rain (hey…i like pina coladas) and then opening it up on the rainy morning to use to it, and it breaks. just like that. brand new umbrella.

…like when i go through airports. no matter how many kids i have with me. no matter how many strollers. i’m the “random” person they pull over to strip search.

…like the fact that my most favorite pair of underwear has disappeared from my house. how does that even happen?

…like the fact that as i dragged my earbuds over my desk at work, one of them just happened to fall in the tiny opening of my coffee. nothing quite like a tim horton’s drenched earbud. mmm…seriously, what are the chances???

…like the fact that i get so excited (yes, i do. sue me) for my first frappuccino of the season and i show up just as the trainee is making her very first one…and she overblends the hell out of it. and it sucks.

…like that i always have to pee. at the world’s most inopportune times. and the most inopportune places. like on a bridge waiting to cross the American/Canadian border. um, yeah.

…like the fact that i always wave to people and then realize i have no idea who they are. like the fact that i always pick the wrong line-up. like the fact that i always order things off menus that they don’t have that night. like the fact that i look like a total asshole in every picture ever taken of me. although i did manage to get a semi-decent one of me and miss Emily at her siddur ceremony this week. (more about what the heck that is on Monday. geez, guys, I’m not Metalia…she’s the queen of ‘Ask a Jew’)

i really don’t want to spoil anything for anyone out there who hasn’t watched LOST yet (but really, it was the season finale…there really is just no excuse for missing it)

holy. fucking. god.

two words. Jeremy Bentham.

also, i love this man.

that’s all i have to say about that.

oh…also, who the heck let Walt get so huge??

check out my review up on my Juice site!!

  1. Your last paragraph – so me! I wear glasses for distance so am always waving at to someone I think is someone I know – until I get closer…yesterday went to Tim’s, wanted to try the chicken fajita wrap – they don’t have it anymore…and I ALWAYS ALWAYS pick the wrong line up, so frustrating when you’re in a rush – and I’m always in a rush!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I once had a 5 flight streak of being the random person. Glorious.

  4. That is a GREAT pic of you and Emily. FRAME IT! :)
    And, OMG LOST. It’s my new favourite show. I used to think it was too creepy and scary for me. But, suspend the fear, it’s the best thing ever. Totally my thing. And…BEN. Fuck that guy’s brillers. Not sure who’s a better character, Dwight Schrute or Ben Linus…. Hmmm….

  5. I always wave at random people. Or actually go and say hi. It’s really embarrassing!
    Also, my niece and I just went shopping for shoes like Emily’s. (try finding them in size 13!!!) where did you get them?

  8. I so get all of that. I once went to Chili’s on my birthday because all I wanted was some southwestern egg rolls. Instead I got the “Our-shipment-got-messed-up-we-don’t-know-when-we’ll-have-any” and a burger. :(

  9. This one, “like the fact that i always wave to people and then realize i have no idea who they are.” Um, yes. One time, back in the day, I accidentally waved at my husband’s, who was my boyfriend at the time,ex-girlfriend. She approached me because she thought I was being an ass. It was interesting to say the least.

  12. Hahahahaha, did we come from the same mother? That underwear reminds me of this Victoria’s Secret pair I have that I bought, which unknowingly had “Invitation Only” scrawled across the butt. Um, YEAH.

    OMFG, LOST!!!!! So good. All I have to say, is I’m glad they answered so many questions, thank God. Of course, they just opened up the door for so many. And thanks (SPOILER ALERT!), Lost creators, for letting Desmond live and reuniting him and Penny FINALLY (though, let’s be honest, what were the odds of her boat miraculously showing up at that very moment).

  14. Ah, he IS hot. And Naveen Andrews.
    Not only do I look like a jerk in all my pictures, but I have paunchy cheek things. So hot.

  15. You know, I was supposed to meet Desmond at the convention I went to. But they went into production that week, filming the last five epi’s back to back.
    Umm.. Walt was able to come back all 16 year old looking because it was 3 years into the future.. a great way to bring him back.
    And Jeremy Bentham? We don’t know what happened between the time the O6 left, and the time he ended up in a casket.. 3 years. We’ll be seeing much more of him, alive, I’m sure.
    *yes, i take my lost very seriously*

    bellas last blog was all good

  16. Lost. Rocked.

    I think Benjamin Linus has to be my favorite TV character ever, and that Michael Emerson guy kicks ass at playing him…

  17. I don’t know what I am going to do until September with no Lost. Seriously.

    And things like that. ALWAYS happen to me. And only me. I am glad to know there are “others.”

  20. I’m so pissed at myself for never seeing an episode of Lost! Haven’t I learned from my previous mis-use of quality TV time? Did I not take anything away from not watching Desperate Housewives or The Sopranos?? Oh Nooooo, of course I didn’t, but I never missed an episode of Top Model. Cause that’s rocket science. Shit.

  22. I can so relate to your post! I have no idea why it took so long to hop over (I see you all over . . . I’m very lazy, apparently).

    The umbrella thing–Me
    The pee thing–oh, so me
    The picture thing–oh the horror–me (though you look GREAT)

    I need to watch Lost. I got all LOST last year–too busy being sick and pregnant.
