No Original Title

Sorry, not terribly creative at the moment. Have had a bit of a stomach bug and add some stress equals me not super together today. I believe tea and snuggling into the couch while continuing my Buffy marathon will make the whole world better.

Sides of Note:
I ran to Target to grab a few things (of course, few as in Christmas stuff everywhere influenced me to buy holiday cards and wrapping paper) and I picked up People magazine to skim. I was going to go full-out Barnes and Noble magazine reading but just didn't feel like reading very much tonight. The cover just totally irked me!

Do you see the issue? Well she is 30 and "I thought I'd be married by now." Oy. Then of course I turn into the ladies from Sex and the City and think "Oh God, I can't believe it! I hope she can get help for that!" Yep. 

Carrie: When did being alone become the modern-day equivalent of being a leper? Will Manhattan restaurants soon be divided up into sections -- smoking / non-smoking, single / non-single?

Miranda[Reading from a singles introduction pamphlet] "Don't let him slip away!"
Carrie: I know. It's almost like a threat. We have him, but he's slipping away, slipping, oops, there he goes!

Samantha's been reporting on last night's weird date...
Miranda: Y'see, this is why I don't date -- the men out there are freaks.
Carrie: Well that's completely unfair.
Miranda: I'm sorry, if a man is over 30 and single, there's something wrong with him, it's Darwinian -- they're being weeded out from propagating the species.
Carrie: Okay, what about us?
Miranda: We're just choosy. I'm getting more shrimp.
BUT despite the above silliness, I have things to be grateful for! I found the most perfect aforementioned Christmas cards and wrapping paper, have some lovely 7-Up to soothe the tummy and my neighbors downstairs took the garbage and recycling to the curb in the pouring rain. 


  1. I think the probably is that women sometimes focus only on finding someone and focus less on themselves. They conform to the situation instead of staying true to who they are. 30 isn't a bad age, and umm did Kim forget that she eloped and then got a divorce? (Okay, I'll stop this now! haha)

    I'm glad I stumbled on your blog! It seems inspiring and encouraging. xoxo

  2. I absolutely agree! I forgot that she was married before. I just think 30 is seen as old to start families and get married but luckily more and more women are waiting until they are financially ready and in a stable relationship.

    Thanks! :)
