Uh Oh… I want to “Share”

It’s getting annoying. TWD and I haven’t been in touch since The Handoff back in January. No drunken texts. No late night booty calls. No Facebook messages. No emails. Nothing. But sometimes I see funny things, or Star Wars things, or funny Star Wars things and I’m like “OMG, TWD has to see this!” I…

I’m Kind of Embarrassed to Admit This

So like I said on Wednesday, it gets worse.  Except this part is more embarrassing than anything else, and I’m the one who’s embarrassed. Little-Miss-Junior-Frappucino’s mother is all excited about the new Star Wars movies.  She’s never seen Star Wars, and she knows nothing about Star Wars, but she’d like to take Junior Frappucino and…

Too Cool for Apple Pie?

Sometimes I have a hard time remembering that The Wedding Date’s kids aren’t six-year old girls.  You know: the kind I teach on a regular basis?  The kind who love stories and stickers and the color pink?  The kind who think I’m cool and raise their hands in class to tell me they like my…

Ladies and gentleman, we’ve had a break through.  It all started Sunday morning when I found myself snuggled in bed with The Wedding Date for the third installment of the 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries. (Yes, we’re watching Jane Austen together.  It was part of the deal I made to watch Star Wars.) The only…

The Gamer’s Girlfriend

In just a few hours, The Wedding Date and I will be on our way to Maryland.  It’s our first weekend away since we went to Boston back in January and considering how my schedule this time of year makes me want to kill myself (or at the very least quit everything in which I’m…

Okay Obi Wan, Now I Need Help

It’s happening.  Actually, it started happening several weeks ago but I didn’t realize just how bad it had gotten until The Wedding Date and I went to the see Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. Not expecting to find myself particularly enamored of the film, I brought a bag of Cheez-Its, a sleeve of…

Mi Novio Nuevo

I’m proud to report that after two failed attempts I finally made it through Star Wars—Episodes V and VI!— which means there’s actually a chance I’ll get through The Return of the Jedi before The Wedding Date and I go see The Phantom Menace in 3-D over the weekend. (Yes, we’re going to see The…

It’s Time to be Ruthless

I once had a professor in college who told me, “You’re extremely gifted.  You’re going to have lots of opportunities come your way.  But you must stay focused.  You must turn them down.  Ruthlessly.” He was one of my favorite professors (admittedly, this had as much to with the course material as it did the…
