The Good, The Bad, and the UG-LEE


So the last few days have been a flood of different emotions. I’ve written emails I’ll never send, blogs I’ll never post, and tweets that I’ve promptly erased. All in all though? I feel better. I feel excited about the future. I’m still upset, but I think I’m doing a pretty fine job of distracting myself, and at this point I know things will get better. Besides that, there are still so many other things going on in my life that I can dwell over.

Like what, you ask?

The Good:

*I’m going to admit something now. I’ve been in denial for a long time, and it’s time I come clean.

I have a soft spot for these romantic comedies. Not all romantic comedies, but the funny ones. More specifically, hilarious ones that star Jason Bateman. That man is totally and completely my cup of tea. Oh he’s no John Cusack, but he sure comes close. I mean.. he’s kind of got that unconventional hero thing going for him. That’s right… I saw “The Switch” last night. I’m not going to say it was the best movie of all time… but I will admit that it had me laughing, which is a feat – by any means.

I also watched “The Backup Plan” last week. Yes, I’m speaking of the movie starring J-Lo. And I liked it. Shut your face… and your mouth.

*My friends and I are working on getting another site going. We’ve been working on it in some incarnation for over 5 years, but this time around I’m really excited about it. Basically, I’ve spent so much time getting to know the nightlife in the DFW, and I don’t think I want to waste my opinions anymore. I think you locals may find this quite useful… so check out Drink Up DFW! Now! Do it! We still have a lot to do, and so many features to add, but I’m really pumped about the direction we plan on taking, and now I may just have some extra time to put some extra effort into it!

*I finally organized my jewelry. That may not seem like a big thing to most of you, but it has all been in a gigantic tangle of a mess since I moved here… last March.

*I’m going home to see the family this weekend. A few months ago, I would have probably categorized this in the “Bad” category, but things have been going really well lately. I’m so excited to see my Stella dog, and perhaps spend some quality time on the lake. SQUEEE.

*Lately I’ve spent a lot of time reconnecting with one of my favorite people in the world. She really deserves a post of her own, but my cousin Andi just started her own blog project, and you should really check. it. out. I’m really pumped about it!

*I had chicken wings for the first time in months last night, and they were deeelish. I also put lots of other yummy things in my body this weekend, including Taco Bueno breakfast, potato skins, doritos, pizza, beef jerky, a burrito, jalapeno chips, ramen noodles, popcorn, a REAL Dr Pepper, and a bag of Reeses Pieces.

I am now suffering from the above combination.

*My car is a piece… I mean a real piece. I’m trying my damndest to give it all the love and affection it takes to keep it alive, but it’s just not working. I know it’s partly my fault… I mean I haven’t gotten the oil changed in months, and I backed into a trailer yesterday… but that doesn’t mean it should die every time I put it in park, does it? I’m just praying it’s got another year in it still. I LOVE YOU CAR. I WILL KISS YOUR MUFFLER!

*Every few hours or so, I start to regret some of what I’ve put out on this blog. Regret might not even be the right word, but lately I’ve been thinking of making it private, or at least some of the posts. I’m not sure what I want to do, but it’s definitely something that’s been on my mind lately.

*I’ve had a really difficult time keeping focused lately. I seriously feel like that dude from Mallrats who can’t see the sailboat in the poster… “THERE IS NO EASTER BUNNY!!” There is so much I want to be doing, and I sometimes feel that I just don’t have the time to do it all. Then again, I hate feeling bored so maybe this should actually be filed under the “good” category.

The Ugly:

*This Dallas weather. Gene Kelly is about the only thing that could make this weather seem better. That, or maybe a few scenes from my boyfriend John Cusack’s movies… especially set to some Ben Folds.

    Girl on the blog front I had very similar thoughts as of late. I finally dove in and started back after a month long hiatus, I am glad I did it. You have to do what is write for you and you alone. I will miss reading about your adventures if you go private, but again I say do what is best for you.

    I’ve never seen a Jason Bateman movie. The last romantic comedy I saw was “40 First Dates”. I prefer movies with violence or superheroes. I’m such a male. And a geek.

    Maybe you should do a few private posts or something. Even if I don’t score an invite to read it, it will allow you to get some of the stuff you want or need to say off your chest.

  • Amber Tidd Murphy

    I have been a HORRIBLE blog buddy lately. Sorry I missed your upset-post (the one before this one.) I want you to know I’m thinking of you, and that boys are stooopid.

    My advice is… just keep being YOU. A guy will come along who will fully embrace who you are, and love you for it. In the meantime, don’t get any sperm injections. I don’t want those rom-coms you mentioned putting ideas in your pretty head. (Just remember… preggers = no drinking.)

    I saw The Back Plan this weekend and loved it.

    I, too, am a sucker for romantic comedies. Especially with some delicious food of whatever sort.


  • Annajanine

    I’ve missed you! Sad that you’re going through some crazy times, but I know how smart you are and that you’ll make the right decision no matter what…but be sure to let me read the blog even if you make it private, dammit! :) Love Say Anything, of course.

  • JustMe

    God. Chicken wings. I miss those things.

    Coffee. Lots of it. It will perk you up and help you concentrate. It may or may not make you temporarily insane (or is that just me?)…but that’s the price we all pay to be productive!

  • BeckEye

    That is all quite a lot to take in. So, I will just say this: Mmmmmmm, Jason Bateman.

  • JD at I Do Things

    So glad to have you back, even if you’re still workin’ some stuff out. Like those chicken wings. I’m suffering today from an ill-advised hot dog and macaroni and cheese dinner followed by ice cream.

    And I, too, love Jason Bateman.

  • The Constant Complainer

    OK, not to make you jealous or anything, but I was actually on the set for one of those rain scenes – the one with the telephone booth. It was very cool.

    I’ve been known to delete tweets to. I say something and then I’m like, “Oh sh*t.” And then I go and delete them. I can also understand the regret involved with certain blog posts. But that’s normal. And I hope you’ll continue to blog, because I, for one, love to visit here and enjoy reading what’s going on in your life.

    I’ve been worried about you guys in TX. The weather reports from there that we keep hearing up here are pretty bad. If you see a car float by, head for the roof!

  • Sonal

    I have a secret love of some romantic comedies as well… I might have to check those movies out. I too overindulged in the gastronomical sense this weekend and am stilling “recovering”… it’s definitely a good/bad thing.

    I get the same I want to do so much but I don’t have enough time… and yet at the same time, I don’t feel like doing anything.

  • steff

    there are few things i hate more than food regret. i think i just really miss the days when i could ACTUALLY eat anything i wanted and not pay for it. now it’s like everytime i eat not only do i pay for it but i get hit with back taxes.

    life can be such a bitch.

  • Alexandra the Tsaritsa

    Jason Bateman is pretty awesome, but I still don’t think I could tolerate that movie. The premise is just too silly. I like the fact that Sandra Bullock will no longer be doing rom-coms, as they are an inaccurate portrayal of life.

    Hope your tummy is feeling better after your junk food fiasco. I love chicken wings, but what you had sounds like a lethal combo.
