Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

I'm a loser, baaaaaby

I'm so boring. For real. The good news is, at least I'm catching up on sleep and errands and becoming a functional human being again. The flip side is that I'm as boring as a two-hour line at the bank.

Here's what I've got:

* Do you see this? Do you SEE it? It's a salad. It's a salad I actually ordered and then ate (well, once I took off the cheese and pulled out all the lettuce that looked like grass). This marked the first time in my entire life that I ordered and ate a salad, and it only took my lovely BFF three years to talk me into it. It was a highly momentous occasion. Perhaps I'll even do it again sometime.



* Songs I'm loving right now: The Way I Am by Ingrid Michaelson, Samson by Regina Spektor and The Adventure by Angels and Airwaves. The first one was on Grey's Anatomy last week. I know, what a shock--Swishy likes a song that was on Grey's Anatomy.

* Speaking of, Grey's made me cry last week. And not because another week went by without a decent storyline for Derek and Meredith (although that was true).

* My hair got damaged from the power outage. Don't ask me how, but it did. All I know is that before the power outage, it was all healthy and normal, and now I have about 100 split ends. The strands of my hair: the silent victims in all of this.

* I am totally addicted to McDonald's french fries. It needs to stop, especially since my week-long, outage-induced hiatus from my New Year's resolutions is now over. But oh, I love them.

* You guys all rock. I hope you're having a great day.

that salad looks good, minus the oranges and the lettuce that looks like grass! Why did you order a salad instead of a big 'ole juicy burger and fries? And is that salad dressing on the side? It's red!!

You have turned my into a Grey's fanatic, you evil woman, you!! I love the music they play too.

Now quick, go to Micky Dee's and get some fries!

I love salads too, but like Kari - that one looks .. a little different than the ones I get. :O)
How did you manage to never eat a salad before?
I love DQ fries 'cause they are FATTER. But that being said, I eat them about once a year.
Loser, you are NOT. We love you and think that you rock!

I HATE vegetables, so you can see how salads would be a problem (and why there are oranges on top of mine instead of tomatoes!) A fat, juicy burger and fries sounds soooooo much better! YUMMMM.

You guys are so cute, thank you!

You are not boring, not one little bit. It takes a QUALITY sense of humor to see that ordering a salad is just plain funny. If you think about it, the whole concept of salad is funny - we walk into a restaurant full of yummy choices and say, "Thanks, but I'll just have some wilted iceberg drizzled with a bit of grease....mmmm!"

As for the McD fries...so true. I think studies have shown that they're actually addictive. I was unable to break the habit until I watched that movie where they guy eats McD's every meal, every day for a month. It took three hours of programming about the diabolical schemes of this company to get me to just say NO. Hello, my name is Trish, and I'm a McDonalds-a-holic. Recovering, one day at a time...

Aggie (is that her name?) called and told me that today is the most depressing day of the year (according to the news channel). So, it looks like my weekend was just in preparation for today!

No fair, no fair! I'm reading this and my dinner's not ready yet and I'm tempted to punt and go to McD's!

And I guess I'm alone in this: that salad looks great to me. I like the orange slices. Yum...

Why did you get ketchup to go with your orange laden salad? Were you pretending that if you put ketchup on your salad it will taste like Mickey D's? I know ketchup is fat free and all but you might be headed towards the extreme. Or onto something great.

Raspberry vinaigrette! It's raspberry vinaigrette! LOL.

A salad, and split ends? First of all, WHY haven't you eaten salads? Did I miss that somewhere?

I HATE split ends! they freaking suck!

By the way, McDonalds fries? I am right there with ya honey!

Wow, all you have to do is blog about some split ends and french fries and you've got a TON OF COMMENTS GIRLFRIEND!

And, for the record, salads with that much fruit do not count!

And, for the other record, I'm glad there's just one BFF and one BBFF; I would hate to have to fight somebody for the honor!

You're not ONLINE!!! And I'm going to bed now so talk at you later.

Oh, and the other thing is that I could just picture you, laughing your ass off about the fact that you were about to dissect and then eat a salad, and I know you were thinking, "OK, I have to take a picture of this and put it on the blog because this is just so strange!"

And then you said to the salad: Say Cheese!

Okay, I WAS TOTALLY bawling after Grey's last week too!! And as soon as it was over I said to my husband that I HAVE to find out what song that was they played. THanks for the info!! Wish we lived closer so we could watch Grey's together.
AND congrats on the salad. I can NOT believe you hardly ever order them. They have the best one at Chili's!
