First Post of 2013: Cameras, Spiders and Bathroom Singing


Hopefully you all enjoyed your holidays, unless you're Jehovah Witnesses; you guys don't get to celebrate. Sorry about that, JWs.

My vacation was fairly tame; I was sick, so spent most of it on the couch, begging Andrew to make me Lipton Noodle Soup (that magical shit beats the crap out of a cold), opening Christmas gifts with the strength and energy of a stoned lizard. and attempting (and continuously failing) to go watch Les Misérables in theaters.

The good news is, I got ridiculously jealous of Andrew's stepmother's new camera, so I went and bought my own. Yay for non-fuzzy photos!

I apologize in advance for the probable increase in pet photos. Feel free to skip them and mutter "Fuck Christine, stop with the pet shots." Feel even more free to comment "OMG YOUR PETS ARE SO CUTE AND AMAZING!"
Here are a few things that happened during the break:
  • Last week, something funny happened in my dreams and I distinctly remember thinking "Man, I'm gonna have to blog about this". While still dreaming.
    • I think of you guys in my sleep. You're always with me, you stalkers.
  • Best event of Christmas Day: When Andrew danced what he believed to be a scottish jig on extra large bubble wrap as I played the trumpet (more commonly known as blowing my nose).
    Really though, what the hell does she mean?!
  • When I took Andrew out on a date to our local Boston Pizza, I went to the bathroom to blow my nose (since my nose sounds like a trumpet; please refer to previous bulletpoint.) As I was about to return to our date, Adele's Set Fire to the Rain came on the bathroom radio. A minute later, a waitress walked in on me singing my heart out in front of the mirror. Unfortunately, there was no way to cover it up.
  • One night, I got woken up by Andrew squirming and cringing in his sleep. After asking him what as wrong, he replied "Ugh, that's just so gross". "What's gross?" He pointed at numerous spots on the ceiling "All those fucking spiders."

How was your holidays (and for Jehovah Witnesses, how was your non-eventful end of the month?)


  1. I wrote an entire blog post in my sleep last night. And it was freakin' hilarious. Had something to do with facebook and weddings, I think. Or high school. Anyway, it was awesome. Too bad I can't remember a word of it.

  2. OMG Brian (my "domestic partner"/boyfriend/whatever)sees spiders in his sleep too...Except that he freaks out, and jumps out of bed, and swats them, and tries to protect me from them...when I'm trying to sleep. And there are no spiders. Maybe that only happened once. But I was traumatized.

    1. Oh God. Sleep talking is hilarious, but sleep walking just freaks the shit out of me. Everytime Andrew gets up in the middle of the night, I ask him "are you still sleeping?!", which is a ridiculous quetion, since Andrew will still answer "Yes, I am" when he's sleeping.

      It's good to look at the bright side; at least Brian wasn't pushing you towards the spiders to save his own ass.

  3. I am also in need of a camera that takes non-fuzzy photos, so please share the brand/model, etc.

    1. It's a Canon EOS Rebel T2i DSLR. When you put it on auto mode, you don't have to do anything other than point and shoot, and BAM! Instant perfect photo. The focus is incredible on it.

      I give it 5/5 llamas.

  4. So part of the holidays was spent with my (silent because of a sore throat - but loud because of her trumpet nose) daughter laying down everywhere she could. It still was a very enjoyable holiday <3

    1. Thanks Mom. You get an A+ in mom-ing.

  5. How do you make Lipton Noodle Soup? I've been sick for three weeks now lol I'll try anything!!

    1. Boil 4 cups of water, stick a packet of Lipton noodle soup, stir for 5 minutes. BAM! Instant deliciousness.

      Also, if you can, sleep. A lot. Pretend you're preparing for a hibernation marathon.

  6. As a JW my two weeks were pretty awesome! I work 4 10 hour days a week and took advantage of the holidays falling on Tuesday. I took the Monday off before each holiday and had five day weekends and two day work weeks! Woohoo. Today is back to reality with a full week of work. Bleh.

    Now since I don't get or give gifts I will say that I purchased myself a mess of new shoes. Yes a mess...a pair of open toed flats, cute little healed shoes, a pair of high heals and an amazing pair of boots! SCORE! :)

    Sorry to hear you have been sick! I hope you feel better soon! And enjoy the camera. ;)

    1. If the perks of being a JW means holiday shoes, I'm in! :P

      It's like when I felt sorry in middle school for the Jewish girl in my class because she couldn't celebrate Christmas. Then she was all "Um, I get eight days of gifts." And I was all "I'M CONVERTING!"

      I clearly have my priorities straight.

    2. I think every kid thinks like that! :) I celebrated as a child and can remember the excitement of the presents. But something ALWAYS went wrong. One of the kids was never happy and someone always ended up in tears while a parent was yelling. Oh yes, happy times. I'm glad I don't deal with that.

      Now shoe sales are awesome no matter what though!


OMG, you can comment!

You should totally comment.
