Innocuous Confessions

1. I don't wear demure colored nail polish. I've never chosen coral or ballet pink in my life. During the summer I choose highlighter colors. Colors you might conceivably find in a popsicle. During the winter I'm all denim blues and vampy plums. When I get around to it, at least.

2. I think donuts are the new cupcakes.

3. I hate cupcakes.

4. Start to finish, my getting ready routine takes me about an hour and a half. I know.

5. I've lived in New York for 5 years, and still, especially when I'm driving around, I can't believe I live here.

6. I went to my pediatric dentist until I got married. They played cartoons in the waiting room, and even at 22, he still gave me games to play with while he worked. I still miss him.

7. The best burger in the city is at Lucky's (I just had one today. I tagged along with Andy and Shiloh to celebrate Andy being finished with tax season [there are two, which was news to me]. James was in the city putting actors into vans, so when he finished with that, he headed over too and drank all my orange soda. This isn't a confession, but Pete bit Shiloh's finger ["accidentally"] hard enough to draw blood. I told her the human jaw is powerful enough to bite through bone, so really, she got off easy. She didn't look much comforted.).

8. I cut my hand opening a bottle of root beer yesterday. A plastic bottle of root beer. It was left over from root beer floats on Sunday. Once I muscled the bottle open, I made myself another root beer float.

9. I stalk a lot of blogs. I probably stalk yours. Which reminds me, update already, will you?

10. This list took me 3 days to write.


  1. Stop cutting your hands. On a plastic bottle? How is that even possible. Stop using scissors to open soda bottles.

    I STILL go to my pediatric dentist. I go when I'm in Utah. Yeah. It's bad. But guess what else is bad: Looking for a dentist. It's bad enough i have to go to one at all. He warned me a while back he was retiring in a few years. At the time i didn't think much of it but now i'm wondering if this was his way of telling me how super lame i was.

    I liked this list a lot. thanks.

  2. Fine... I'll update. Somebody's finally called me out on it.

  3. I think you need a Mary Jarvis cupcake.

  4. Let's get real about cupcakes, people. They are inferior to nearly every other dessert out there. The only reason why they're so popular is because they're cute. I bet 9 out of 10 people would prefer an actual piece of cake, on a plate, with a fork, so that the frosting doesn't go up your nose when you bite into it and crumbs don't sprinkly all over your chest. You've stuck a nerve with me.
