  • Cut symptoms of depression almost in half
  • Lower your risk of type 2 diabetes by 50 percent
  • Make it easier to get pregnant when you want to
  • Boost sexual arousal by 100 percent

… Would You Take It?


Rest of the story: … basically tells you that, oh, PSYCH! There’s no pill or drug that does all that shit. But but BUT! Research shows exercising 30 minutes a day does do all that shit. And can reduce risk of memory problems by a third.

The rest of my reaction: Well, shit. There goes my shot. Wait, no, I could exercise every day. Wait, no, who am I kidding? Wait, no, wait! Ah! Who am I!?

Stuff I’m wondering/thinking today

  • How in the hell did so much laundry pile up in this house? There are only TWO of us!
  • … which reminds me. When The Boy and I bought our new washer & dryer, and I asked about the Electrolux set we bought, the salesman asked, “What do you need such a big set for? Do you have like 8 kids?” I said… “No, but I don’t do laundry often so when I do, I want to do all. of. it.” So that answers that.
  • I used to get so excited when the mail would come every day! Now I dread it. Bills bills bills. Yuck. Anybody want a pen pal?
  • We ordered a mini (laptop). I want it here. Now.
  • I HATE DUSTING! Anybody need a side job? I’ll pay you to dust my house. I’ll pay you in pizza and cuteness (via the animalias, not me, obviously). Seriously.
  • April Fool’s Day is stupid. Google changed its name to Topeka? COME ON.
  • I once fell for a Google April Fool’s joke.
  • Having spring break as a living, breathing, functioning adult human is awesome.
  • We’re having a housewarming party next weekend (AND I GET TO SEE MY BEST FRIEND). I’ve never been to a housewarming party. wtf are we supposed to do besides brag talk about the house?
  • Speaking of the house…

Did I mention we’re homeowners?

I know, I know, I still owe you a photo tour. I’m a busy girl GET OFF ME.

Couch to… couch.

A good friend and I were talking the other day and she brought up this Couch to 5K thing I’d never heard of before.

As we talked about it, we both got excited and were like Let’s do it! Together! And then we’ll run a 5k! And I was like yes! Except maybe not the run the 5k part because yuck! But yes!

Since I don’t have a printer at home (well, I mean I do but it’s out of ink and not a bluetooth printer so I can’t print from my Droid because REMEMBER HOW I DON’T HAVE INTERNET AT HOME?!?!??!), I wrote out the schedule for the couch to 5k plan and was all set to start.

And then she started.

And I didn’t.

And I still haven’t.

And I don’t know when I will. (Because I come home every day and worry about whatthefuck we need to do next to get this damn house purchased already!) Or IF I will.

And so I eat hot cheetos with sour cream and avoid the mirrors.
