Sometimes I unfriend people on Facebook on their birthday. If someone pops up on my birthday notifications and I have to think twice about who they are, or I don’t care that it’s their birthday, I unfriend them. It’s a convenient way to upkeep my Facebook friends but I hope no one has ever noticed that I gave them the boot on their special day.
Almost every time I flush a toilet, I think about this article I read in Cosmo that warned of all the germs and bacteria that are thrust up into the air (and your vagina) when you flush a toilet. For some reason this really stuck in my brain because it makes sense that some germs and um…particles…would go flying upward from the force of the flush, but who the fuck flushes the toilet while they are still sitting on it?! Because of this article, though, I’m now even more distrusting of automatic flush toilets–there’s nothing worse than when they flush before you’re ready!
If a book gets insanely popular, I’m less inclined to read it. It’s not that I’m a literature snob or anything, because I’m not. I think Twilight just ruined it for me, so I’m hesitant to pick up anything that falls into the same popularity pattern as those books. I will definitely never read any of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo books, and probably also The Hunger Games because I assume that their bestselling status means that they kind of suck. I mean, Sarah Palin’s book was a New York Times bestseller for christ’s sake, so obviously that distinction says a lot about the quality of the work. I’m still gonna go see The Hunger Games movie today for Erin‘s birthday though.
I think I’m addicted to sugar. I’m kind of a hypochondriac, so to say I’m “addicted” is just a way to diagnose myself of something else. But seriously–I get mad cravings for sweet things and I get really grumpy if I can’t indulge them. I went on a hardcore sugar binge on St. Patrick’s Day weekend (Thin Mint boozeshakes and sooooo many of the peanut butter pretzels that Amy made) and I felt like crap for almost a whole week after. I’m sure that the alcohol binge contributed to the crap factor, but I’m convinced that I was also coming down from a massive sugar high. I’m trying to be more careful about eating sweets, but it’s not going so well.
I still kind of like Good Charlotte. See my previous post about how much I love The Madden Brothers’ new collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly. I can’t help it–I’m a sucker for catchy pop punk, and Benji and Joel Madden are just so edgy (in, you know, a totally unoriginal and calculated way).
