I turned 28 yesterday, but to hear my new Wii Fit tell it, I turned 39. Nothing says Happy Birthday! like being told you're obese and 11 years older than you thought you were by a PLASTIC BOX, am I right? It's a little hard to rationalize a slice of birthday cake after that. Hell, it's a little hard to rationalize a slice of tomato after that, but, no fear, I still managed to have a rather nice day, especially since I got to do three of my favorite things: go to brunch, see a movie and control the TV remote.
New Celebrity Sighting
We didn't have a babysitter New Year's Eve night, so when my mom offered up her (free!) babysitting services for New Year's Day, we were all "SEE YOU AT SEVEN!" and we went on a double date with some good friends. We went to a local Mexican place in suburbia, and apparently Local Mexican Place in Suburbia is the new Spago or.....wherever else the famous kids are eating these days because the local Mexican place in suburbia is where I saw David Archuleta.
I used to rant and rave about how much I couldn't stand David Archuleta and even though he never actually did anything wrong, he was the one celebrity I most wanted to kick. I think running into him on our date night was the Universe's way of proving to anyone who knows me what a total shit TALKER I am instead of shit STARTER. When presented with the chance to actually kick him, I tweeted instead. Yeah, I'm so bad ass. DAVID, FEAR ME AND MY SOCIAL MEDIA SKILLS.
In other news, he was wearing skinny jeans and, well, no. Just no, David.
New Item Scratched Off the 2010 Goal List
I'm kicking ass at 2010, I don't mind saying. Last night, I spent a good portion of my birthday (willingly) entering every address I have into a file box I was given for Christmas 2008. It took hours -- ooooh, the hand cramps! -- but it's done! (I've also added a couple more things to my sidebar list and took charge of some HTML code to cross out what I've finished so far.)
I worked up a budget for January, and if we stick to it, January won't be a nail-biting, penny-pinching, WHERE DID OUR MONEY GO? fun fest like every month of 2009. The silver lining to acting like an adult, I suppose.
New Kyle Trick
He waves, for the most part, although not when he has a room full of people waiting for him to wave because that wouldn't be humiliating at all for his mother. He is also learning to wave with just his hand and now his entire body, SPAZ ALERT, and you should know that the fact he'll be a year old in a month is so staggering until I think of all the milestones he's hit this year, and I'm all, Only a year? My oh my, feels you've been impressing the hell out of me all my life.
What's new with you?
