expiration dates...

I like to look at expiration dates.

Frankly, it's just a good precaution. Look at the expiration date...see what you'll be doing around that time.

If I'm thinking about buying some milk, but I'm going to be out of town when it expires or not around much between now and the expiration date, I don't get the milk.

If I have a coupon or a gift certificate but I know I'm not going to have the money to spend on anything by the expiration date, I give it away.

Get the picture?...expiration dates are important.

What I really like are long-term expiration dates. For instance:

My debit card.

The expiration date on my old debit card was June 2011. When I got that card in 2008, I looked at that expiration date and knew that in June of 2011 I would have just graduated college, be looking for a job, trying to squeeze in as many "real" summer moments as possible, and, of course, getting a new debit card.

Well, I lost that card. Threw it away actually.

Oops :)

The expiration date on my new debit card is September 2013. In September of 2013:

I have no idea what will be going on...

And that's a little scary.

my love/hate with scrabble...

I love everything about Scrabble. I love the colors on the board. I love the way the letters feel. I love the old boards that fold in half. I love the new boards with raised dividers and a rotating base. I love the little letter stands. I love the the little pouch you draw your letters out of. I love that it has its own dictionary. It's a words game. I'm a words girl. I love Scrabble.


I hate to play Scrabble.

My letters never add up to anything. I draw lame Q or three T's. I never get to play on those snazzy little "triple word score" squares. I always lose. I hate Scrabble.

...Change of subject. (but one that will make sense, I promise)...

My sister-from-another-mister, Becky, is going to pop any day! We're all counting down the days till we get to meet her sweet little girl, Karis!

he's all the great ones are

I currently live with 8...eight...EIGHT (just making sure you got that) other girls.

Let's just say we have.....quite the movie collection. No one needs to know the exact number of drawers or cd cases are's really not important ;)

What is important, though, is that, collectively, we have the entire series of Friends on DVD.

No....we don't ever get anything done.

A few things you should know about me when it comes to Friends:

1. Monica gets on my last nerve.

2. I laugh way more than is probably normal.
(Seriously. I mean it's funny, so laughing is to be expected, but for some reason I just, sort of, let myself go when I watch Friends...I big laugh all through it)

3. Chandler is my favorite. Well, really, I guess Matthew Perry is my favorite.
