"You Look Good in My Shirt" by Keith Urban
Puts a smile on your face and makes you dance in your chair. Oooo that's just me? Shocking.
1) An English bulldog that I will name "Moose" [please have him resemble the below and note I will accept more than one]
2) A house on Cape Cod (not too picky)
3) Endless cups of coffee...all I ask is that the coffee mug have a sizeable handle.
4) Paperclips. Seriously. I love them.
5) Mark DeRosa (speaks for itself)
6) Chapstick. I'm an addict.
...That should do it for now.
I really don't think it's much to ask for.

I love "The Hills" and I know a good handful of people who appreciate the drama they create just as much as me.
And as much as I hate the Heidi/Spencer dream team, I do love Spencer's quotability level. My favorite in last night's episode (and maybe overall) occurred while having a heated discussion with his sister:
"I can't make you un-my sister."
Genius. Mad genius.
This time, she's really done it. Remember those shows you've always wanted to watch? However, naturally the minute you remember you want to watch them, they aren't actually ON TV at that time. [i.e. "One Tree Hill" has always seemed right up my alley with the perfect balance of cheesy quotes and good looking men, but I always forget to watch it.]
It seems too good to be true...but the good news? It isn't!
So thanks, A, keep 'em coming!

One of those boxes was Tropical DOTS. Mixed reviews on the flavors, but A plus for the packaging. This includes a very handy "DOT Drop," where you can open the box at the top easily and the DOTS just drop out! Hence the clever name.

He gave me this spiel about how he lives down the street and a water pipe broke, flooded the street and resulted in his car being towed downtown. He had to catch a flight to Boston in two hours, but his computer, wallet and cell phone were all in his car...which was "towed downtown somewhere on Wacker". And did I know that you need ID to fly? He was frantic. I was about to feel bad for him when he said, "I normally would never ask this. I mean, I'm a VP for an elite marketing firm and I make good money, I'm talking good money like one hundred K, but I'm freaking out - can you please spare me any cash for cab fare?"
A of all) I *strongly dislike* when people feel the need to share how much money they make
B of all) Did he really just say "K" instead of "grand" or "thousand?
Anyways, the good person in me handed over a ten and a "good luck."
Walking away, I realized if he really is the VP of a marketing firm, it's nice to know how he handles crisis situations.
Note to self: Don't work for that dude.
Note #2 to self: Don't hand over tens to strangers again.

Great pizza place to try in Chicago. It's not your typical deep-dish that we all know and love so much, but the crust is crunchy and the beer is better.
In the heart of Bucktown. Try it. I mean where else can you order an individual pizza with a mashed potato topping?
Warning: After eating here, you will probably be prompted to incorporate the word "piece" into your sentences. i.e. "Man, I ate one piece too many" or "Piece be with you," etc. Not that this actually happened...I'm just sayin'
Thus, I have pulled a few of my favorite lyrics involving Sunday...just because...
* Sunday morning, rain is falling, steal some covers, share some skin (Maroon 5)
* And the haze clears from your eyes on a Sunday (Jimmy Eat World)
* Take me to a zoo that's got chimpanzees, tell me on a Sunday please (Sarah Brightman)
* Suddenly everything's gonna be okay, there's somethin' 'bout a Sunday (Michael Peterson)
* And steal a kiss as the sun fades, that's what I love about Sunday (Craig Morgan)
* Pray that it's raining on Sunday, stormin' like crazy (Keith Urban)
...I was tempted to add the ever-popular line from Manic Monday..."I wish it was Sunday cuz that's my fun day"...but I just couldn't do it. That would have been taking it too far and it would have taken away from the SUNday.

His typical eats:
Breakfast: 3 fried egg sandwiches, 2 cups coffee, 5-egg omlette, bowl of grits, 3 pieces of french toast, 3 chocolate chip pancakes
Lunch: 1 pound pasta, 2 ham and cheese sandwiches, energy drink (1,000 calorie)
Dinner: 1 pound pasta, 1 large pizza, energy drink (1,000 calorie)And he still complains about how hard it is to keep weight on. Yeah, I have that problem too...Oh, to be an Olympic swimmer.
Here you can insert different text and change the font, color, arrangement of the words to your liking. Definitely not for everyone, but if I can finally give in to the fact I am a sappy hopeless romantic, I can give into the fact that I am obsessed with this website.

I realize that yes, there are a lot of stripes on our flag, but it's the American Flag, for goodness sake. That's sacred ground. You can't mess that up.
Or if you're a new $0.42 cent stamp, apparently you can.

Then I realize, nope, I'm fine right where I am.
:: "Robots! I love robots! They are so cool."
Umm okay, perhaps you need to expand your horizons a bit.
:: "I tend to defocus on ads which try to get my attention using pretty models."
Oh I'm sorry, next time, hideous models will be hired for your viewing pleasure.
::"I do not like the imagery of someone receiving a physical."
I would worry if you do...
::"I like chocolate!"
