Before lunch I also had an apple and some grapes, but my camera died, so no pic. I also enjoyed an iced coffee. I am finally starting to look forward to coffee everyday. Why am I so weird and trying to make myself addicted to coffee?
Then, Ben and I went to the store and were shocked at the huge piles of snow in the parking lot! I still cannot believe that we managed to move to MD for the biggest snow storm since the 1800s. Lucky, I guess! (Note the heavy sarcasm there .)
Then, we hit up Borders because there are some very interesting books Ben wanted. We are not exchanging V day presents (we usually don’t exchange presents for Christmas/b-days/etc, but instead save up to go places/do things). But, I told Ben this was his V day present from me since these books were expensive!!!
Since today is our “Cheat Day” I made pizza for dinner, it’s not as cheat-y as ordering pizza, but it was still dee-lish! I topped my half with a little cheese and olives and goat cheese on one piece as an experiment. I keep trying goat cheese and hoping to like it, but I don’t think it’s my thing. With roasted brussel sprouts on the side because I love them.
Ask Me Anything:
You guys love this stuff and so do I
Question: Do you call blueberries “blubes” in reference to pubes? I love your pervy humor… seriously! or not if that’s not what you mean…
Monica: Ha! No, actually I call them “blubes” for “boobs”. Example, when I pull them out of the fridge to eat I shout, “Show me your blubes!!!”
Question: I dunno if anyone has asked this yet but are you planning on having babies anytime soon?
Monica: No. Ben and I only got married a few months ago and want to enjoy each other for a while before that. We have a game plan and plan on making babies in two or three years. For now we are focused on our careers, traveling and sleeping through the night.
But… Ben is actually ready today! (I don’t think he realizes how much it would change things.) For now though, I want to enjoy my freedom for a bit and grow together with my husband before we add anyone else to the mix.
Question: What brought you to Maryland? How long do you plan to stay? Any idea where you want to go next?
Monica: I’ve been asked this so many times (I guess because I complain so much about it?) and here is my same answer = Ben and I moved to Maryland from California for a job opportunity I got. It ended up not being at all what I expected and subsequently fell apart.
We plan to stay as long as necessary for us to fullfill our lease and/or get new jobs elsewhere. My family is in CA and his family is in FL, so we are planning to move to one of those states. I’m excited just thinking about it!
Question: Does Ben’s employer read your blog? You’re always talking about moving, I would think it would make his employer nervous. Or, perhaps he or you already have another job lined up elsewhere?
Monica: I hope not! Ben has purposefully not told anyone at work about my blog, but mostly because I can be inappropriate (see the first question about boobs). He is more cautious about these things than I am.
Neither one of us have jobs lined up yet – but if anyone is hiring writers/communications specialist or soon to be certified personal trainers (for me) OR mechanical engineers (for Ben) in CA or FL – please let me know
Now I am going to make some banana soft serve and relax
See you tomorrow!
