Almost Twenty Middle and Almost Loving It

Oh Hey Hey Bianca!

I’m so glad you got a day off to actually enjoy the hot flash mother
nature is most certainly having! Al Gore must be freaking out right
now. I mean, I’m sure he was happy that he was right about global
warming and all, but that means… HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING
AND ALL and if more people don’t take notice and start driving our
globally friendly vehicles… we’re all gonna die! {Sigh}.

I haven’t been able to enjoy the heat. Like you said, the Vanderbilt
pool closed over a month ago and mostly this is just inconvenient for
my wardrobe. Tomorrow is October which means I should have my new
fall boots broken in by now. Yet they are still in their box,
Bianca! Burnt orange and cayenne red just don’t feel right when it’s
90 freaking degrees outside!

The temp has also been a great excuse for me not to run. It’s right up
there with: “I did it once, I can do it again.” “My birthday is in x
days.” And, “but I need to sleep in if I’m going to run.” And then
repeat, “It’s too hot out…”

Whatever. I did it once, I can do it again (just dreadfully slow this time).

My twenty middle birthday is on Monday. And last week, I was so stoked about turning twenty middle! You threw me an incredible birthday theme party, complete with Guidos, Guidettes and a two day hangover. What’s
not to love? I’ll tell you, what’s not to love, Bianca. I woke up
(albeit hungover as the day after my 21st birthday) and looked in the
mirror and what did I see… CROWS FEET WRINKLES AND SADDLEBAGriffic
THIGHS. Whoa!!! Where the hell did that come from? I swear, I didn’t
have wrinkles before we celebrated my god damn birthday… Oh, and the
hangover, lasted 2 days, not quite the recovery time of a 21 year old.

Meh. Again, whatever. I’m happy, I’m healthy and I have an awesome
life with wonderful friends and family. Algebra is great, too! He’s
been doing “birthday week” surprises all week! I’m loving it! I’ve had
my car cleaned and waxed, a cute picture framed of the two of us and a
neat-o wi-fi thingy for my TV. Woot! Plus, everything has come wrapped
in cute wrapping paper and CAMOUFLAGE DUCT TAPE… ha! Who knew.

I hope you’re having a happy Thursday! I can’t wait to see you on my
couch for girl’s night (aka watch awesome TV and gorge on ice cream).
I have a couch now, so it won’t be a floor night.

Researching Botox,

If she thinks it’s summer, it’s summer.

Dearest Bridget,

I apologize for this e-mail which is a day and a half late. It’s not so much that I’m busy as I am catching up from taking a pseudo “personal day” yesterday. Contrary to popular belief, I was not at the doctors office or babysitting (in the employee handbook, babysitting is the first reason listed for accetable use of personal days), I was laying poolside, my friend.

I was, though, at the pool with my cousin who is in fact younger than me, which is technically babysitting. This is a gray area and I’m just going to call it good. My boss is being really nice today because I think she thinks I needed the personal day for something super personal. In reality, I just wanted to lay out at the pool on a freakishly hot late-September day.

I know what you’re going to say, “WTF pool were you at in late September?! The Vanderbilt pool closed almost a month ago, and usually we’re near snow conditions by this time of year!” But my grandma is 82, and if she thinks it’s still summer, it’s summer.

In other self-indulgent news, I bought an iPhone yesterday. It really is superior to my blackberry. I feel bad for Mac haters for not getting to experience it’s magic. I feel like I don’t even need a computer anymore because it does everything. It even turns my face in to the face I would have if I gained 300 lbs. So, yeah. I’ve been pretty preoccupied (understatement of the year) with that today. I watched Weeds on Netflix during lunch. I feel like I don’t deserve all of this amazing technology, but again, I’m going to call it good.

I’m going to fake cough a little and get some work done now, so you have a great day, girlfriend and I’ll see you on your couch tomorrow night.
