Response to a Fan...

In response to Sarah's comment about my klepto tendencies, let me explain. I really like Splenda. I enjoy it on my cereal. I enjoy it in my coffee. I enjoy it anywhere one might use sugar. There is something about the Splenda packets that I love more than the Splenda you get in big bags (which i also use). Two places that I often frequent are Starbucks and Panera Bread. Both of these places serve my favorite things in the world, but they also have another thing in common--they both have packets of Splenda--right there, out in the open, ready for the taking. So I take. Whether I need it for the meal that I purchased or not, I can't resist grabbing a handful and stuffing them into a compartment in my purse. There is something so satisfying about this. Perhaps it is because I have been overcharged for my meal or coffee that I feel like this is the only way to get my money's worth. It is my sweet sweet (pun intended) revenge. This morning when i went to IHOP for breakfast I ordered coffee and instead of using Equal or "the pink brand" I was able to reach into my purse and pull out a couple of yellow packets filled with the white fluffy goodness. It felt good. Let me also make clear that I don't shoplift. And I don't think swiping a few packets of Splenda can even be compared with stealing. I mean it's right there next to the napkins and straws. It sends the message, "Take Me" (why not a large handful even)??? All I know is, taking Splenda makes me feel good and in the end if the price of your Starbucks coffee goes up at least you'll know why.

Some people have told me that I look like "Dana Scully" minus the red hair. And not just one or two a bunch of people. In highschool, in college, even in Australia. But I like to think I'm cream with extra sugar. Make that Splenda.

I love you Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson is my idol. Here is a picture of Jessica and Ashlee back in the day. I had Jessica's hair-cut and hopefully in the next few days I will be able to show you a picture of what I like to call my "awkward stage."

Dad is Straight, I Swear

My parents are silly. I can't imagine life without them. I am a lucky girl.

Let's Give This a Try

This blog stuff is all new to me, but I have been forced by popular demand (coughSarahcough) to start one. It is kind of frustrating getting it all figured out, but i will get it all down. If I can graduate college, I can create a blog!
