That was fun! I loved the one about where you were five years ago, and our bad habits are exactly the same. I'm especially bad about buying books I'll never read, although I specialize in apologizing for missing friends' birthdays, too.

Hey Caryn- I feel like I should by "belated birthday" cards in bulk! Do they sell them by the carton??

Keri Mikulski said...

I love this tag.. You've lived in so many amazing places. Commuting from your houses in NY and LA.. Sounds like a blast. :) I need to add buy expensive handbags to my list.. And procrastination.. I'm with you on that one. :)

Hey Keri-
Commuting was really fun . . .at first, but then it got kind of old flying 6 hours just to go to work!

I don't really think i can answer 5 to all of those questions. The only jobs i've really had have been babysitting my little sister (which i don't even get PAID for... pfft... i know, it stinks) and walking my neighbor's dog , which is kind- of cool because i can be all like, "Yeah, so i'm like a dog-walker..."

My flaws, well i say "You've got to be kidding me" a lot, I'm addicted to Youtube, I can't come out of OldNavy without a huge bag (can anybody?), I can stay in a book store from the time it opens to the time it closes, and i love starbucks vanilla caramel cappucinos (spell check??).


ps. No matter how many flaws you have, PLEASE keep writing! Because losers like me who stay in book stores from dawn until dusk like to read you're books!

Hello Emily-
Sorry you don't get paid to babysit your little sister--being the youngest of three, I bet my sisters said the same thing about me! Though of course I was well-behaved,obedient, and absolutely no problem whatsoever . . . :)

Let's see, my other flaws include: an extreme over usage of the phrases: No way! Omigod! You did not!

And I too just bought a stack of tank tops from Old Navy . . .

And what can I say, I have a fond appreciation for bookstore "losers"--being one myself and all . . .

Thanks for stopping by!
