I have a pretty strict "no video gaming" rule, with three exceptions: Mario Kart, Peggle, and Nintendogs. Nintendogs and I go way back. When I was sixteen, my eight year old cousin left his Nintendo D.S. at my house on accident. Inside I found a magical game filled with cute, baby puppies. I found out that you could train the puppies to do tricks for you and bring your presents. I was in love. Turns out, the eight year old wanted his game back, so I had to part ways with my new found obsession. Fast forward six years, and my husband purchases me a copy of Nintendogs to occupy my time on our up-coming flight. That night, I stayed up until 2am training my precious "Cupcake" for her first dog show. When I entered her into the show, she didn't place. I cried some very real tears before I realized that I was being an absolute maniac.
I usually don't eat ice cream, because when I do I become obsessed with it. The kind of obsessed where I only want to eat ice cream, and lose interest in other forms of nutrition. Well, a week before moving I decided to have a one night stand with a pint of "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" and chaos ensued after I finished. I think no man has ever mourned an empty ice cream container quite the way I did that night.
I might be the first person in the world who has legitimately shed tears over an episode of "The Office," but when Jim buys Pam his parent's house, I become a puddle of mush. It's almost as bad as the first (and last) time I ever watched "Lilo and Stich." "Ohana means family" will always be an embarrassingly emotional phrase to me.
I guess I just ran out of my 64oz Diet Dr. Pepper before we really got to know each other?
While cleaning out our fridge, I threw away roughly 20 tons of expired Mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, Ranch Dressing, and Tzatziki. I just kept thinking about how selfish it was for me to not use my excess Miracle Whip when there are starving kids in Africa.
So, I guess the point of all of this is that I am a crazy person. And I don't handle change very well.
And I hope we can all still be friends.
