In Case You Had Any Doubts

I am a total nerd.


Jason took this photo of me completely absorbed in the latest Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic book (which is, by the way, made of awesome*.)

Yes, We're Back!

But... Jason has all the NYC pictures on his computer so I have to wait to get my hands on them and upload them. For the time being though I will share with you two important things I learned on our trip:

1. Everyone in the world has a black piece of luggage with some goofy little piece of yarn tied around the handle in order to distinguish it from other pieces of black luggage with little pieces of yarn on them. At the baggage claim in Milwaukee this is not that disasterous of a problem, but at LaGuardia airport? It's a new situation entirely. I think I need a can of hot pink spray paint.

2. Girls. If you ever visit the Big Apple? Please, please. please wear comfortable shoes. You will pay dearly if you don't.

Ok, hopefully I'll get some photos up tonight. I'm off now to bike away the monstrous amounts of food I ate. (Seriously! I've gained eight pounds this summer even with working out three days a week! Not. Fair. I'm officially revisiting my account at Fitday and putting myself in check.)

Right now I'm getting ready for my trip tomorrow where I will meet Jason in New York City for our tenth anniversary.

Ten! Yes, really.

First of all, why didn't somebody tell me I was such a baby when I got married?

I mean, good lord, I married a teenager!

Anyway, we're gearing up for a few days of good food, good wine, and some big city fun.

The Scene: Watching So You Think You Can Dance? with Juliana while the awesomeness that is Danny Tidwell performs with that annoying Schwimmer girl who is totally going to win the whole show:

Juliana: "Mom, look at his arms! He's all bumpy! "

Now all I can think when I go to the gym is how I'm going to work on my "bumps".

(I realize that this probably belongs on the kiddie blog but as you can see I am short on content this summer so it's going here.)

And now, since I love this show so much, a couple more videos, just for kicks:

I enjoy Mia Michaels' choreography on the show so much that I'm almost able to overlook the Celine Dion bouncing off my eardrums.
