i’ve heard it’s a very good place to start.
so. about me and my fresh faced, newly started blog. in the past 22 days, i have experienced an unusual amount of mishaps (some comical, others not so much). in jest, i have started a battle of wits with the year 2010. or as i lovingly (mockingly) call it, ‘010. in a stroke of pure genius, encouraged by my good friend Katie, i have decided to blog about it. hopefully you will laugh uproariously with me about the funnier aspects of my life, weep with me in the more tragic, and shake an angry fist with me against the injustice. oh, and PS, i am lazy and use capital letters sparingly.
so, we’re almost done with january and i have yet to catch you up…buckle up kiddos, i’m going to take you on a quick run through so far.
I DANCE IN ‘010’S FACE
new year’s eve party rocks. friends, beverages of the alcohol nature, and apples to apples flow like wine. ’09 was amazing for me and i was not ready to give it up. i think ‘010 picked up this.
‘010 IS BORN AND REARS IT’S UGLY HEAD
1st day of the new year. i am house sitting for my mom. “surely she has black eyed peas” i think to myself. i know i don’t have a can of them in my bachelorette pad. after frantically searching her cupboards for them, i realize she does not either. however, i am too lazy to drive to the store and buy a can. but it’s a silly superstition, right?! in this modern day world, can anything as silly as a can of beans stand in the way of my happiness and future success? my friends, i am here to tell you that apparently it can.
‘010 IN THE FIRST 22 DAYS
i won’t bore you with the day to day trials and tribulations (yet). a quick recap:
2) unceremoniously dumped by guy i was dating with a lame ass cop out of an excuse
3) blue-green-gray-black hair. picture if swamp thing were to mate with smurfette then you have the color. and while the cut is fabulous, complete with rockin bangs, i look like a swamp thing/smurf version of Elvira. this is unacceptable. i am a girl who has great hair. it’s one of my best features (along with my eyes and legs, of course).
4) the most awkward hug moment EVER. i was sitting at work, being awesome when i hear “meredith, a friend is here to see you”. i glance up and instantly recognize one of my friends who lives in kansas. i bound out of my chair, shrieking “ohmygod!ihaven’tseenyouinforever!” (all one word, in a pitch only dogs can hear) and give her a full-fledged bear hug. then it dawns on me…my friend lives in kansas, why is she in okc? and she doesn’t even know where i work…so i disengage the hug, look at her. oh. shit. she’s not my good friend. she’s the rep for one of the manufacturers my company uses. a-dub-k-dub-a-r-d. yep.
that’s it so far. i have countered brilliantly. there was an amazing road trip to nashville, the purchase of vampire weekend tickets (they sold out in the first 2 hours & i have 2 tickets in my hand…suck it ‘010!), and many good times with friends. so don’t you worry one bit. i have written ‘010 a post-it note in study hall. and it said “bring it”. so bring it, ‘010. freakin bring it.
