A few confessions to cap off this week:
- I use Pinterest to document all the stuff I’m going to buy on Old Navy, and about eighty versions of a coffee table I’m never going to build.
- I try to pretend to know how to cook, but really what that means is I like to go out and have other people cook for me, while the apartment is a memorial to un-used cookbooks.
- I once subtitled an old blog “Faking adulthood one wine cooler at a time.” But that was stupid, because out of all of the awful things I do drink – Mike’s Hard Lemonade, the occasional Smirnoff Ice – I have actually never had a wine cooler. It’s one of those things that you hear referenced on sitcoms and “To Catch a Predator,” but in all my years, I don’t think I’ve ever had one. It’s just a testament to the fact that quite frankly, I can be a bit of a phony sometimes. I’d like to say, “But who isn’t?” But I fear that no one else would admit that they also know what it’s like to be a bit of a phony.
- I love grocery shopping at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, which is a weird thing to say, but I just really, really love it. Grocery shopping, especially at yuppie grocery store chains, gives me a sense of control in a world full of chaos. Though I never remember my reusable grocery totes. Ever.
- I’m still in my pjs. But I’m supposed to be meeting people shortly, so I should probably change that. In full disclosure, I’m probably going to keep the same black tank top on though. Which I wore out yesterday, in addition to also wearing to bed last night. But I’ll throw on a cardigan and some deodorant, so it’s totally cool.
I was going to say that the sunshine that is out today was giving me a moment of clarity, hence the need to confess. But the real reason is I like talking about myself, and it doesn’t need to be sunny for me to feel the urge to do so. And I think that’s something every blogger should be okay with admitting.
Oh, one last confession. I’m hoping over the next year or so to amass an expansive, amazing collection of Toms shoes. My love for them is overwhelming and confusing, but steadfast. At least in the least 48 hours.
