Won't this be fun?
(I stole this from Jodi, because I got to her blog and only two people had commented. My comment - being the third, entitles me to a Jodi gift...which will be AWESOME!)

I'm fairly sure that the cardboard, jailbird cutout of Steve Guttenberg is my favorite part. Looks like the fame of Short Circuit really got to him. I mean, why else would he refuse to be in an El DeBarge video?

I thought it was unbelievably funny, so the second I left the store I called Rob so we could share a good laugh. He didn't laugh like I figured he would, instead he very seriously said, " Maybe she was practicing for Supermarket Sweep."

There is, however, one (insert random name here) that I have been dealing with for quite some time. It all started about two years ago when I was in Chicago visiting with my family. My little brother, Johnny, was talking about his best friend's girlfriend. I remember laughing and saying "Ryan has a girlfriend?" (No offense Ryan, it's just that up to this point I assumed you and Johnny were involved.) Johnny gave me the confused look and said, "Apparently!? I had no idea either. It's kind of weird though, because you guys look a lot alike." My dad then walked into the room and said, "Yeah, it was really weird, because I saw them together today and asked Johnny, 'What's Ryan doing with Melissa?' " Now I was intrigued.
Ryan's girlfriend and I got sick of hearing how much we looked and acted alike, so we decided to become friends on our own (aka, added each other on Facebook). But this past week, Helen and I were able to meet face to face at Johnny's wedding.
Luckily the world did not blow up when we met as many had predicted.
Within a few minutes of meeting eachother, Helen asked me where I got my dress. She then got a sly smile and mentioned that not only did she HAVE that dress, but that she had tried it on for the wedding - but then changed her mind. Fate. We sat by eachother at the reception dinner, and realized that we REALLY are a lot alike. So much so, that even my husband was a little bit creeped out.
Helen, I must say that I had so much fun getting to know you better, and hope that in the future we can end up at the same summer camp, get matching hair cuts, and then switch parents when the summer is over.
The nice thing about this whole experience is that when people say, "Would YOU be friends with you?" I can honestly say, "I already am."

There is ONE positive thing about this so-called-Mono. Apparently, I'm not allowed to exercise with this virus because it tends to enlarge the spleen. It may sound backwards, but at least while feeling like crap I can make excuses for the still-yucky-post-baby-body that I am so frustrated with. I can think things like, "It's okay that you look like this; you have mono and there's REALLY nothing you can do." Then I'll satisfy my angst with, "You'd look great if you didn't have mono. You'd have the energy to exercise EVERY day."
With this new revelation, I no longer feel guilty about my absence in the blogging world. And ask that anyone that follows this blog (and yes, I mean both of you) will forgive me for leaving you out of my daily grind. I promise to start again soon.
I ask that in lieu of flowers and donations, you send me comments filled with links of great online shopping. I heart online window shopping.
