There are a few posts that I have in the works for the following reasons:
1) Because I have really cool dreams and I think mini stories that feature my weirdness are in order.
2) I have been thinking about my family a lot. I have been reading this one blog and the girl talks about her Italian roots. It’s a nice reminder to me that I shouldn’t forget where I came from. I was fortunate enough to know three of my great-grandparents until I was 25 years old. I had access to first-hand knowledge of the accounts of coming to America on a ship through Ellis Island at my disposal. I just hope I didn’t waste that opportunity…
3) There are things that bug me and I know the list seems endless. Another “Grinds My Gears” is in order. Also, when I finally get around to that post, it may turn into a “Would You Rather?”. For instance, at work we have a communal kitchenette. There are always coffee, tea and light snacks at our disposal. Oddly enough, there are two coffee makers, a regular coffee pot and a Keurig. In the cabinet above the coffee makers, a jar labeled “Tea .50 cents, Coffee .50 cents, Keurig $1.50”, I think it says other stuff but basically that’s the jist of it. I have never put money in the jar. What I do is this: I go to the store and I buy the coffee creamer I like and basic Keurig cups like Maxwell House and Folgers. Sometimes I get fancy flavors like Hazelnut or French Vanilla. I put them in the communal cabinet so that other people may use them too. I don’t mind. I get what I like and other people may use it as well. I don’t want to put my money in the jar to be used on things I won’t use (I don’t like the creamer that is purchased and I don’t like the tea bags they get, etc.). The other day, an employee that is in charge of emptying the money jar saw me take a Keurig cup, withholding putting money in the jar when I took it, and gave me a look. Had he said something I would have told him that I bring in coffee-stuffs (right now I just put it in the cabinet and no one needs to know I bring it in…I’m like the little coffee gnome). I mean, is it getting to the point where I need to defend my coffee addiction?! Is it wrong that I don’t put money in the jar but instead buy my own coffee-stuffs? By the way I am so copyrighting the hyphen “stuffs”. Anything with a –stuffs I OWN! HAHA I do use is a lot. A lot-stuffs. So anyway, I digress. My point is it grinds my gears. The whole situation. So I ask you, what would you do…or “Would You Rather?”.
4) I need to eventually get around to explaining why I blog. It seems like I started off this whole thing as a way to chronicle the time leading up to my wedding and the things I have done to prepare. I have been basically planning everything on my own, with the help of select family members (I couldn’t do this without you guys! *Tear*) but I was hoping to maybe shed light on any tips or trade secrets I have learned along the way. Then, out of nowhere this blog morphed into basically my life and all the twists, turns, ups, and downs that it took (and will take). I hope my readers (hi guys!) don’t mind that. I just want to tell you why I blog and why it has become such a passion of mine to share who I am and what goes on in my life. I mean, granted it’s not that exciting, but STILL! I have an awful memory and I hope that this chronicled jumbled of words and ideas will come in handy one day.
OH and one more thing, 5) Maybe I might talk about something important for once. There are two things. I lied. One thing being the whole gay marriage debate and the other is this new concept I heard on the radio about an airline charging tickets for how much the passenger weighs. I don’t know. We shall see what I come up with to weigh in on those topics. No pun intended.
