Emotionally unavailable? Nope. Not me.  
♥ So many things to pontificate about, so little drive to type it all out...

First and most importantly, for those of you who don't already have an action plan in place, May is evidently Zombie awareness month. The linked article is disturbingly sincere, with suggestions about showing awareness by wearing a grey ribbon and buying a book with clever verse entitled "That's not your mommy anymore." Weird. Even so, I'd like to point out that I'm ready, should the zombie apocalypse ever happen. *cough*

♥ The show is going really well, thought it's hard to tell because I'm working too hard in the scenes I'm in to be sure.


I'm still the chubby girl, but at least I'm owning it.

♥ I've been mainlining Modern Family episodes. This is the funniest show on television. It's hysterical. All of the characters are believable and well written, even the kids! And I'll be honest, I sort of want to be Sofia Vergara.

♥ Many of you know I'm a bit prone to fits of literary hyperbolic violence. For instance, today I actually said out loud, "If I miss one more important text I'm going to shiv someone with an icepick," which led to the question, 'Can you use shiv as a verb?' and if you can, can you also exchange the word for a makeshift prison weapon instead of a kitchen tool to break up ice ... All that to say, I need a text plan. I'm not going to use it obsessively, dear husband, but I will USE IT. Aaaaand I think I just found the first topic of our new marriage blog. Which can be found at nolanandcarrie, if you're interested. When we're in the same room for more than half an hour at a time, we'll bang one out. We've got all the material in the world, but agreeing on a topic has been, oddly enough, a challenge. Marriage. Go figure, right?

♥ Also, on a completely unrelated subject, it's sometimes hard for me to be a recovering bitch instead of a very current and clearly present one. By being manipulatively bossy, I could totally get pretty much anyone to do whatever I wanted or make them cry, whichever comes first. I've been trying, for the last few years to be a nicer person. Unfortunately, 'nice' it not my fallback emotion. Or even an easily accessible one. Still, I try. (Sometimes I try harder than others, but I digress.)

♥ I'm off for a weekend of baby showers and musical performances and a visit from my mom and Tom, so I'm off to scour the house and myself in preparation. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Nice is definitely MY fall-back emotion. Nice to the point of being walked on. I try to walk the higher road all the time. I need to toughen up and start being a bit more bitchy.

Of course I would never ever call you bossy and bitchy - but if you ever feel the need to share some of your so-called bitchy-ness I have some of my door-mattyness to give.

Also - in related news - I feel I should be wearing a gray ribbon. I had no idea. I love causes. Zombie Awareness month will be my new cause! :)

(and you look gorgeous back there in the red. Work it, girl!)

Loved your paragraph on being a recovering bitch. As one who shares this issue, it was much appreciated. :D

I think you're looking good, and hey, there have to be beautiful chubby girls out there. I'm currently being the slightly unkempt and frumpily dressed chubby woman, so thanks for taking up some slack for me!

Hope you enjoy your weekend. My mother's here, so the best thing I can say about mind is that it ends in two days!

'Nice' isn't my fallback emotion either, so I know how very hard it can be to stem the urge to make someone cry.

Great pics!
