Are You Married?

after meeting one of my coworkers one of the first questions she asked me was, “are you married?”  and before i could really analyze the question and formulate a response, i said, “no.”  “wow, you answered that fast,” she replied.  i mean, i guess it’s nice for some people and in certain situations i would agree.

today i went out to my car for a trip to IHOP when i noticed a low tire.  normally this is when i would call my dad and he would come fix it.  seeing that he is in massachusetts…that wasn’t happening.  i had to do it myself.  i thought about my options.  i could put on a spare and take it to get fixed or drive it as is till i found a service station.  if you know me well enough, you know i did the latter. 

i’ve never changed a tire, and never will…that’s what AAA is for.  however, i can at the least check my oil…changing it is a different story.  point being: having a husband or at least a boyfriend would have made this process much easier.  there’s certain things girls are good at (and by girls i mean most…but a shocking amount a girls i know aren’t good cooks) and there’s things boys are good at, and in my mind cars is one of them.

but until then, it’s up to me unless i come into a lot of money and can afford to hire someone to take care of those manly duties.

If marriage is like having one song on your iPod, why are so many people downloading and syncing up?

Marriage…It’s All About The Timing

If the objective of marriage is to marry someone for true love…why do most people get married around the same time?

Now more than ever I’m convinced “love” is timing more than anything.  It’s when two people want the same thing at the same time, and to a degree are willing to comprise.  We all have our “types,” but it seems when we find “that perfect someone” our lists go out the window.  Suddenly we don’t care if they have dark hair, how tall they are, or if they go from god awful white to red when tanning. 

When I was at a bachelorette party over weekend it struck me that all of the women there all got married within a year or two of each other.  If we’re really searching for true love I don’t think this would happen naturally.  Instead people want to settle down and find someone who is good, but who is not the perfect person they had envisioned for years before.

Seinfeld Phase 7?


I had to work yesterday, usually I would go to the gym in the morning before work, but because it was a holiday I was forced to switch it up.  I ended up going to the gym after dinner with some roommates.  It was a lot different, normally I see a total of no more than five other people there.   I got on an elliptical next to my roommate and of course we both tuned in to watch ET and then some dance competition show.  I looked over and laughed with her when the second show came on because she’s obsessed with dance competitions.  We all did crunches together and started laughing uncontrollably for reasons that I cannot reveal (but ones you can imagine).  And on the way out I showed them the rule of the gym that calls for no swearing, grunting or yelling.  Yeah like that’s gonna happen, every guy in there grunts when he’s lifting.  It must be they’re natural reaction, or what they think they’re natural reaction should be to show that they are tough.

Today I called an audible: doing what I want when I want.  Since I had no classes, it made it pretty easy.  I slept in, which for me was 7:30; that’s a whole hour later than normal. I also went home this morning to make hummus, and for no other reason.  Yes that’s right, I traveled roundtrip, according to mapquest 61.32 miles, google maps 61.6, just for some hummus.  And believe me, it was well worth it.  I then spent a good hour and a half at lunch with my roommate…also well spent.  We figure the panic age for most women who want to get married is 27.  We also decided that a part time job is the best answer to having a life with kids, otherwise you’re just lazy.  The conversation was very insightful and enlightening.
