I was really good at blogging for a few weeks there. So good that my boyfriend took me to get some Mexican food and we did a toast over shots of tequila about a rare streak of commitment to writing. Then, in a moment of inspiration, I bought sarapellicori.com. Because... Continue reading

Home Sweet Park City, Utah Home. Oh how I miss it already. I had an amazing trip and am putting together photos and some skiing chronicles. I'll never stay in a hotel again if I don't have to. Home rentals are so much better. Continue reading

I think, at least I'm not one of those little creatures at the bottom of the sea that drifts aimlessly until a larger creature swallows it whole. At least I have something to hold on to, ground to defend, infinite choices for happiness. At least. Continue reading

Jan and I are dine-in Valentines. Each year we trade off who will be the chef and organizer of the night's events, and that works for us because we like relaxing at home. We also like dancing in the kitchen, which is frowned upon in restaurants. This year I took... Continue reading

1. I cuss a lot. 2. My hair looks like complete shit in humid conditions. 3. My friends actually like me and would never let me go through with it. 4. I only own one pair of wedge heels. (Which I've only worn twice.) (And I was miserable both times.)... Continue reading

Let me preface this list by saying all I did 2009-2010 was sit on my laptop and think about boy/man/creature love. Somehow all the music I've listened to since hasn't caught up to this extremely telling rotation of tunes. Top 25 Most Played Songs (from iTunes) 1. Unstoppable - Santogold... Continue reading

Valentine's Day is on the way. To celebrate, my local Caribou Coffee erected a love shout-out board. I've taken a liking to it. The messages on the board range from serious to silly and answer the question, "Why do you love your sweetheart?" I particularly enjoy the cards that admit... Continue reading

I want kids someday. I really do. But days like today I wonder how parents do it. How do they give it all and then let go? How do they make choices knowing they are the right ones? How do they live through the headaches and heartaches of wanting so... Continue reading

- I buy tins of mixed nuts but leave all the peanuts. Why don't I just buy tins of almonds and cashews? It's obviously more expensive so that could be it. Perhaps I'd miss sifting for the crescent shape of the cashews. I love them the most and hardly ever... Continue reading

My head isn't heavy. My throat isn't scratchy. My eyes aren't droopy (or burny). My body isn't achey. I'M NOT SICK. To prove it, I'm going to go home and take a nap. And when I wake up I STILL won't be sick. Unless I am sick. In which case,... Continue reading

I don't have any unread messages in my Gmail Inbox! I started out with about 9,000 (which is probably less than most people reading this) bold bastard lines. Some realizations came out of the review and delete process: - I ordered a lot of Sarpino's pizza. More than I thought.... Continue reading

Before taking over Jan's space and life in November, I donated nearly 95% of my library to lighten the load. The precious books I carted from 62nd Street in Kenosha all the way to Marquette, then two hours south to Chicago, and to each small space thereafter -- they're gone.... Continue reading

Bun removal is an important part of dieting. I wish I could reject its truth but unfortunately, carbs gotsta go. They congregate in the gut and multiply like sex-crazed rabbits in the thighs. And they're everywhere, so it's real task to say no. I use one piece of bread instead... Continue reading

1-4. The Bachelor. 5. Baking potato chip cookies for Megan's Superbowl party. Ahem. 6. Lifting weights. With my first spring break trip on the horizon, squats and lunges have never felt so necessary. Also, planks kill. 7. Meeting one of Jan's amazing and charismatic Aunts from Poland. 8. Starting a... Continue reading

Last month Jan and I spent a couple of nights trying to establish deep breathing and relaxation time before bed, and although we weren't necessarily organized or purposeful in our motions and thoughts, we saw the merit in the practice. I wouldn't categorize either of us a high strung or... Continue reading

Is this an atheist web geek t-shirt craze waiting to happen or what? If you saw me wearing this in public would you give me a high five or punch me in the face? Whichever wins in the comments will determine whether I get this odd moment of creativity printed... Continue reading

I'm still obsessed with Flo Rida's "Good Feeling." So I searched for songs with the word "good" in them this morning and used that as my playlist to work. The results: 1. Good Feeling - Flo Rida (I replay "givin' up's not an option gotta get it in" over and... Continue reading

Think about the strongest person you know. And I'm not just talking about He-Man, here. I'm talking about the person who can say no to donuts on Fat Food Fridays at work. The person who rides their bike in every condition to save money (or the environment). The person whose... Continue reading

As I masked my pasty legs with a pair of exercise pants and slipped my ankle-socked feet into winter boots, I considered how disgusting it would be to put my down coat on post-workout. I nibbled on a Pure Protein bar reluctantly, shuffled through the latest issue of Women's Health... Continue reading

In no particular order: 1. The Missys got married. Pictured here is the famous moment when Missy Dupor (formerly Rankine) gave her besties the best gift of all -- honey badger (don't care) t-shirts. 2. Sunset on the Pacific. Vera and Chad hosted us in the Bay Area, and we... Continue reading

In high school, I camped out at Missy, or Missy or Crid's houses for days at a time. They boosted my sense of self, taught me how to straighten my hair in sections, donated cooler clothes to my closet, introduced me to the boys who'd become the faces of my... Continue reading

Around this time in 2008, I made a serious bid for Bears tickets so I could take my good friend Chad to a game. The CFO at work was throwing a couple of seats out to the wolves, and contrary to popular decision, he gave those coveted tickets to a... Continue reading

After an amazing experience at Perennial Virant last night: "No, thank YOU for an amazing Sunday. You made it the best." "Well, you're the Paul Virant of girlfriends." "Hmm. Okay. Then who's the Morimoto of girlfriends?" "Mila Kunis." Continue reading
