Sunday Night Blues


No Boyfriend, we don't have rabies.

And not even true, for that matter. She totally sat in my lap for a solid 90 seconds this weekend.

*slinks away*

Boo this week. Just boo.

Pumpkin Spice My Life

Not since I changed her diet, thank you very much.

Boyfriend gardens. He's very impressive.

Those gross candy pumpkins are the most delicious and disgusting things on earth. 

Yep, I was obsessed with pumpkin all weekend.

I did, and it's freaking delicious.

But then I crossed a line.  I made a stir fry of eggplant, broccoli, soy black beans, and tempeh for my work lunch. 

So, I dumped more pumpkin sauce on it. And it then looked incredibly unappetizing. 

Sigh. I took it too far, you guys. Too far. 

Is there a food/flavor you pushed too hard?

Just a Touch of Rabies

A couple of weeks ago, this happened:

That's right. Boyfriend found a bat flying around his kitchen in the middle of the day. He got it out of his house and texted me. 

I reacted appropriately, I think. 

I furiously googled bat rabies, and was horrified by what I read, which included gems like these:

1. bats are the number one cause of rabies in people
2. bat teeth are very sharp and bites can be undetected by sleeping people
3. rabies is always always fatal and by the time you show symptoms, it's too late and you're gonna die

So I emailed this info to  Boyfriend, who promptly disregarded the email and told me that it wasn't in his bedroom, so it was fine. He didn't think to murder or trap the bat to get it tested, so he didn't report it. 

I tried to forget about it, and saw him like usual that weekend. 

Then, last week, Boyfriend found a bite on his leg. A bite that did not belong to his puppy.

So yes, Boyfriend finally went to the hospital. And got six shots. He got shots for his puppy, too. 

He and I have been googling rabies nonstop, and are both a wealth of information on the topic. 

(Yes, that sad Scrubs episode with Dr Cox having a breakdown was based on a true case!)

So that's how I became convinced I got rabies too. Even though there's never been a case of rabies through human kissing. Still. I've always felt that I was meant for greatness.

I made Boyfriend ask the doctor during his next visit, and she said she "thinks" that if he didn't have any symptoms, I was fine. TBH, "thinking" something is not the type of language that inspires confidence in me. But Boyfriend is fine. And I'm probably also fine.

I'm Such an Asshole

I was saying goodbye to Boyfriend this weekend like usual.

And he got a text on his phone.

And all of a sudden my world stopped.

It was the unthinkable. 

That's right you guys. I completely forgot Boyfriend's bday. Even though I use it for a bunch of password related things and was looking at what to buy him last month, once September 1 hit I somehow completely blanked that his birthday was coming up. 

It was like one of those dreams when you're totally unprepared for a test or presentation. But not a dream. Real life.

I love making a big deal out of Boyfriend's birthday! Cake! Presents! A  mushy card where I tell him how much I love him and how special he is to me! It's pretty much a holiday for me too.

It's Boyfriend's birthdaaay and I'll cry if I want to...

Damn rational Boyfriend

So yeah, I feel like a total asshole. Has anyone else ever done something so stupid?? 

I do plan on fixing this, though. 

Happy Birthday to the best Boyfriend in the whole wide world! (And sorry I suck, dear.)
