I Spy

From my vantage point in front of the computer, I spy, with my little eyes something that ...

[1] Is red: *looks around for quite some time until…* The red key fob on my spare key to the Escape. *realizes I overlooked a Dr Pepper can and red pen sitting right under my nose*

[2] Is shiny: A small blue mirror on my desk reflecting light from the window. Ooo, shiny.

[3] Is ugly: The mess that is my desk. Especially the junk sitting in the plastic bin in front of me. And also the frame on that Madonna poster. It’s coming apart. I should fix that. Oh, and my LVC diploma frame that is still sitting with nothing in it.

[4] Is made of wood: My desk! Easy peasy.

[5] Is sharp: My pocket knife. That really shouldn’t be sitting open, now should it? I could cut myself and bleed out and… ooo, that’d be something red.

[6] Is blue: A matchbook from Continental, a pool lounge in Rosslyn. Not like lounge by the pool with a drink, more like a lounge that has drinks and a pool...table.

[7] Should be in the garbage: The empty Dr Pepper can and cottage cheese container. I have stuff that should be in the dishwasher, too. And the medicine cabinet. But I’m not telling you about them.

[8] Makes you smile: The picture of Savvy as a little baby puppy, taken before we could bring her home. Wanna know what makes me sad? LVC didn’t send me a new calendar this year. *looks at calendar stuck on August* So sad.

[9] Doesn’t belong: Other than the garbage? My toothbrush. How’d that get in here?

[10] You doubt anyone else will have from their little vantage point: A ticket to Madonna’s Drown World Tour and one to the Re-Invention Tour. Or a tennis ball with a smiley face drawn on it. His name is Dunlop. Ooooor... BOTH!

Because I'm bored. So, why not?

10 years ago:
1. I was the Energizer Bunny in the Halloween parade. The costume made an appearance every year afterward, because what else can you really be with a bass drum strapped to your chest?
2. I found my pure love of biology class and had the highest grade without much effort.
3. Mr. Evans threw a chair at Bumper Peters in the middle of Spanish class.
4. I dated Josh again, because he was the only boy to ever have much interest in me.
5. I was taking Algebra II with Hendrix - the ball carrier, a bunch of seniors, and Alison. I hated it with a passion and failed the final because I'm slow and didn't finish due to a well hidden learning disability of some sort. I got my one and only high school C in that class. It also kept me from the math honor society until senior year. I’m still not bitter over one freakin’ test... really. (Although, I would like to note that completely failing a final and still getting a C is mighty fine work on my part.)

5 years ago:
1. I was living with Kara who turned out to be an awesome roommate and funny as hell. Plus, she helped me annoy J with the Hippopotamus song.
2. I was taking Organic Chemistry and cursing its existence.
3. I met Claudia and Cristina, but never saw them together and still couldn’t tell them apart. What was my problem?
4. J became my bestest friend in the entire world.
5. I was crushing over an adorable freshman named Kyle who eventually dropped out of college and fell off the face of the planet.

1 year ago:
1. I thought I was going to die in the Mustang when the brakes went out and I made the worst decision of my life – to continue driving it to the mechanic.
2. I finally came to terms with living in DC and wasn’t so miserably annoyed with life.
3. I started my job at the Secret Service (which is most likely linked to 2).
4. I was consoling Mandy about Paul being so far away.
5. I slept through Criminal Law II nearly every class and still managed a B, although it did wreck my 4.0 at GW.

1. I watched the X-Files.
2. Alison called me twice for advice.
3. I ate leftover Thai food.
4. I watch Erin Brockovich on TV.
5. I didn’t see my roommate at all.

5 snacks I like:
1. Pizza goldfish
2. Chocolate ice cream
3. Potato Chips
4. Granola Bars
5. Fruit roll ups

5 songs I know all the words to:
1. Like a Prayer - Madonna
2. Guttermouth – Bree Sharp
3. Collide – Howie Day
4. Goodbye Earl – The Dixie Chicks
5. Least Complicated – Indigo Girls

If I had a million dollars:
1. I’d pay off all my school debt.
2. I’d give a large chunk of money to my sister and parents.
3. I’d find someone to help me invest it wisely.
4. I’d give a portion of it to the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.
5. I’d buy a house somewhere and get a dog. And then I’d sing the BNL song “If I Had a Million Dollars” continuously.

5 things I would never wear:
1. A bikini.
2. A belly button ring.
3. A wig.
4. Lots of makeup.
5. Braces.

Favorite TV shows:
1. Friends
2. X-Files
3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
4. CSI, if only to be angry with it
5. A marathon of just about anything. Seriously, put something on 3 times in a row and I’m in.

5 bad habits:
1. Laziness
2. Letting my apartment become a mess
3. Procrastination
4. Distractibility
5. Being a hermit

5 biggest joys:
1. Friends who know how to make me laugh
2. Spending time with family
3. Staying up late into the wee hours with someone when it feels like you’re the only two people alive
4. Curling up and sleeping next to someone
5. Big dogs

5 fictional people I want to date:
1. Chandler Bing, from Friends
2. Luka Kovac, from ER
3. Maggie Stone, from All My Children
4. Nick Stokes, from CSI
5. Willow Rosenberg, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
