--> Maynard is on my lap, on his hind legs, with his paws on my chest, drooling so much it's dripping. Kinda gross. Kinda really fucking cute. Maybe he missed me over the weekend.

--> I think Hermione is getting annoyed at my leaving. I took the suitcase out this afternoon and she's been distant ever since.

--> Pet peeve: I don't care if women wear thongs. Their discomfort is their own perogative. However. I don't need to see it. I really, really, don't need to see it. I don't need to see it if you're a size 0 or a size 12. I need to see your ass even less than I need to see your thong. Pull your fucking pants up.

--> Pet peeve 2: Don't talk on the phone while you're waiting in line AND while you're ordering your yogurt. If you're the same person with the thong, I will find you doubly annoying. (In this case, she was.)

--> I don't feel like packing. I really, really don't feel like packing.

--> My apartment is a mess. My car is a mess. I still haven't brought the coolers in from the weekend, which is kind of gross. But there's only water, soda, and a few cans of Starbucks Double Shot in them. I just don't have the will.

--> I will be TAing in the fall. It's been two years. I am sad to see my schedule freedom go. However, structure will probably be good for me. Very good for me. This means this blog will soon become filled with my daily rantings re: undergraduates. If you are an undergraduate and you read this, please know that these are in no way personal attacks upon you, your intelligence, or your character. I will freely admit, right now, that I will have a few very good, bright, diligent students out of the approximately 50 I will have. However, and it's very unfortunate, part of their being great students is that they give me nothing to talk about.

--> What is the appropriate way to respond when someone you're dating throws the 'love' word out in the middle of a completely weird context, but for the very first time. Like, for example, let's say I'm sitting on the couch and, while removing the lid off a jar of jam with a knife (ah, skills), I fling it several feet away. The person I've been dating for 2-3 months now says something about how I have to brace it (they're jars of homemade jam - I've never really opened a jar like that before, I confess). I laugh at myself and apologize. He laughs. Casually: "You don't need to apologize so much. I love you." >awkward pause, during which I sit back and stare out the window in front of me.< "Um, you do?" >shorter awkward pause< "Sure." I proceed to burst into uncontrollable laughter, which probably wasn't the best response. But the look on his face and the tone of his voice when he said 'sure' were just . . . priceless. When I could breathe, I told him I couldn't wait to recount the story to my friends. "Oh, great." He probably didn't think I meant via a livejournal post, but alas . . . *shrug*

I guess I should pack. Simply postponing the inevitable.

I'm totally with you on the thong thing. Wear whatever underwear you please, but I don't want to see it unless I'm getting into bed with you. I just think it's so trashy that people feel the need to show it off like that in public. I feel similarly about girls who intentionally wear brightly colored thongs and white pants that show everything underneath.

Precisely. If I'm climbing into bed with you, show away. Otherwise, keep it to yourself, please. Oh god - yuck. The colored thongs under white pants is doubly trashy. *shudder* Why do people think that's appropriate? Ick.

Thong = Butt Floss

Hrm. Having a girl laugh uncontrollably while trying to advance the relationship. Can't say I ever had that happen but if it did, I'd sure as hell would like to know what was so funny.

Another thing some girls shouldn't do - like lean over the counter at the Spencer's cash register flirting with the clerk and showing your ass in tight pants to everyone standing in line behind you when a stand behind you holds cucumbers-on-a-stick. (I was SO tempted)

Do you really think it's possible that's what he was trying to do? It's sort of been preoccupying my mind all day, but I don't know how to bring it up with him again . . . I feel awful for laughing, especially if it was genuine.

Oh god. Some women. *rolls eyes dramatically*

It's hard to tell but most men in general are hurt on some level if a woman laughs when they are in a vulnerable state. You may have inadvertently planted a seed of doubt in him, you should tell him what made you laugh before it grows.

He said I love you. And I still haven't seen a picture.

I'm pulling out my best friend card. I have one before you leave, or we're in a HUGE fight. :)

I don't think he was serious.

I can't think of a look I like less than the prominent thong: sticking out of pants or visible through them. And the cell phone thing in line makes me see red sometimes. I can't stand waiting and waiting in line to place an order for coffee while the person in front of me is yakking away on a phone and then DOESN'T KNOW WHAT THEY WANT when it's finally their turn. I've often felt like being a bitch and cutting in line.

Did you ask the "I love you" guy how he meant it?

Ugh. Me either.

He said something along the lines of "he's pretty sure if he was really serious, I would know . . . " Which then just left me confused as to how I should feel about the morning indicent. I think a tiny part of me may have been excited at the prospect that he meant it in a particular way, and was then somewhat disappointed when it was sort of swept aside as no big deal.

That's mean. Lol. He deserved the punch, for sure. ;)

I know. I wish I could go back and remove the laughter. I just . . . I was uncomfortable, feeling awkward, and when he said "sure" I just kind of lost it. Who says 'sure'?!

I think we're alright.
