Things I’m ashamed of:

on January 14, 2010 in Ze Bloggy Goodness with 21 comments by
  • That time I called the YMCA to cancel my gym membership and a guy I know answered the phone.

Sorry, David. I won’t be working out at your facilities this year. Nothing personal. How’s your mom?

  • That time I sold a bunch of books so I could have extra cash to eat out with my friends. Yeah, knew the guy there too.

Oh, hey Peter. Yes, that is two identical copies of Purpose Driven Life.

  • This time.

Toms + Santa socks = January 13th, you’ve never looked so good.”

  • The time that I still had a crush on Mark from the FIRST season of Road Rules.

Yeah, Mark. I know you’re 49 and still on MTV. But there’s something really right about this.”

  • The time I cried while watching You’ve Got Mail. Yesterday.

‘152 insights into my SOUL!’ Sigh… I’ve been single a long time.”

  • The time I wore the same outfit two days in a row thinking there were no repeating viewers.

Sorry about it, Marisa. And no, I won’t wear it again tomorrow… unless I for SURE won’t see you. Uhhh… will I see you tomorrow?

  • The time I ate frozen yogurt during a snowstorm.

Wait. So you haven’t been so busy at the store today? Weird. And yeah, put another scoop of Oreos on there.

  • The time I was glued to the television during The Bachelor because the scandal was just. so. shocking.

Uh, Roslyn. A staffer? Gross.”

  • The time I kept a REALLY delicious secret from you…. until tomorrow.

Hey, bloggite. I’m playing games with your mind. But you’re gonna love it. See you on Friday.”

    You’re sneaky, aren’t you?

    Thanks for all the prayers. The Lord is working it out, of course.

    So funny!

    And the Bachelor… “Most. Shocking. Yet.”, they always say it, but somehow, we don’t care. Just roll the clip! πŸ™‚

    And I love “You’ve Got Mail”, it happens. I should know. πŸ™‚

    Looking forward to tomorrow.

    How funny! Guilty of wearing the same outfit two days in a row, guilty of selling books for frivolous reasons, guilty of canceling a gym membership when I know the person working the desk and guilty of watching drama on the Bachelor. Wow! Great minds think alike. πŸ™‚

    I am queen of wearing the same outfit two days in a row when I know I won’t be seeing the same peole – it’s so much easier cause you already have it picked out!

    Love love love You’ve Got Mail. When my sisters and I went to New York, we created our own ‘You’ve Got Mail’ tour and then when I moved to Dallas one of my friends sent me a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils πŸ™‚ It was one of the sweetest gestures ever.

    I used to cry EVERY time in the end when Joe walks around the corner and Kathleen sees him and starts to cry. “I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly!”

    Okay…this has to stop.

    I’ll be sure to check back tomorrow! I can’t handle suspense! πŸ™‚

    I adore you’ve got mail! Sigh.

    I have been known to wear Christmas socks at other times of the year too πŸ˜‰

    Can’t wait to hear the secret is!

    Love this post. I just cancelled my Y membership; they made me come in person and then totally laid on the shame!

    You’re hilarious. Like seriously hilarious.
