What I really need to do

what-i-really-need-to-do-zero-dean

What I really need to do is find myself a brand new lover.

… But I’ll settle for a slightly used one.

As long as she still runs well, gets good mileage, and isn’t going to raise my insurance premiums.

I brake for milkshakes.

i-brake-for-milkshakes-zero-dean

In cafe.

One of the staff is sweeping near me, “You want a cinnamon bun?”

“600 calories!? No way.”
“Not if you split it 3 ways.”
“Whaaat? I’m not sharing my cinnamon bun with anyone!”

He laughs, “Hey, I’m almost out of here. You know, it’s funny, it got busy when you came in and it’s stayed busy.”

“That’s because my milkshake brings all the customers to the yard.”

*laughing intensifies*

But really, it’s the weather. Because if I actually had a milkshake, it would be gone already. Screw what I said about calories. We’re talking about sweet, delicious milkshakes here.

Some guys have all the luck

Whenever I’m out in public and I see a guy who’s obviously enjoying spending time with his girlfriend, I always want to stop and ask where he got her and if they had any more left.

*Still no idea why I’m single.

When I get my hands on you

That awkward moment there’s a love song lyric that goes, “When I get my hands on you, I won’t let go.”

And I’m like, “Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! That would be really inconvenient! I don’t want that! Stop chasing me!”

Do you have the ring?

Weird thought of the day:

I wonder if people with really big wedding rings think they are really, *really* married. And really, *really* in love.

Whereas, people with small wedding rings are only just a little bit married. And only a little bit in love.

*I’ll take sharing bonding experiences with a loved one over the implied value of a physical thing that is supposed to represent that bond.

You can’t buy love. But you can pay for kickass experiences to share with someone you love. Which, in turn, will strengthen that bond and create memories that last a lifetime.

What an odd thing to value the symbol of something more — or care more about how others perceive that symbol — than the bond it is supposed to represent.

*For clarification: I’m not judging anyone on their ring size. And not only do I not care about the size of your ring, it’s none of my business anyway.

However, it concerns me that we live in a debt-driven culture where many seem to think that a big wedding and a big ring are an absolutely essential part of the wedding experience. “Everyone does it, so we must, too.”

For those who can afford it, great. But these symbols are not actually essential.

I would say being genuinely in love and being committed to wanting to spend the rest of your life with someone is the most important thing.

Feel the vibration

Once upon a time, I bought a razor with a battery in it. The battery makes the razor vibrate when I shave.

Because you need that.

More recently, I bought a toothbrush that does the same thing. But for teeth.

But whereas I’ve never replaced the battery in my razor (I shave every other day) — and it’s replaceable — the battery in my vibrating plaque attacker is not only not replaceable, I have to recharge it every few days.

That seems odd.

One battery lasts forever. The other not even close to forever.

At this point, I’m considering MacGyvering a toothbrush to my razor and using that as an all-in-one.

And also because my razor has a cool blue LED that makes it look futuristic — because you need that — and my plaque attacker has none.

What were they thinking? I don’t know.

What am I thinking?

Vibrating blue LED-featuring face-shaving plaque-attacking razor-toothbrush for the win.
