Important Thoughts 28.0

28.1: I love Tina Fey. {But who doesn't?? I mean, other than my mother. My mother does NOT love Tina Fey, or even like Tina Fey, and in fact she dislikes Tina Fey so much that she also automatically dislikes everything Tina Fey has ever been in. Including Megamind.} I love Tina Fey, but I love Amy Poehler more. I think Amy Poehler is some kind of hilarious genius and I want to be her best friend in real life. When I picture me hanging out with Tina Fey, I imagine us having lunch and she's giving me all kinds of advice that I'll never actually have the courage to take. With Amy Poehler, I imagine us going to the movies and throwing popcorn at the screen and laughing like crazy people.

28.2: I sometimes fantasize about what I would tweet if no one knew who I was. If I had a completely anonymous Twitter account and I could say whatever I wanted about whatever was going on in my life. And then I think, "probably I spend too much time on social media if this is what I fantasize about." And, "I have a lot of pent-up anger." And, "that's never going to happen because my dad is on Twitter." My dad, you guys.

28.3: I've had this thing with Rice Krispies Treats lately. As in, I've made two pans in the past week, and each time I wanted to eat all of them right away. {Instead I settled for eating hand-sized squares whenever Christian wasn't looking. And sometimes when he was; you may have seen his tweets about it.} I kind of think I'm not going to get this craving out of my system until I eat my fill, regardless of judgmental comments from my husband. Anyone... want to do it with me? Eat as many Rice Krispies Treats as we can until we never want to eat one again? Yes?

28.4: If you've ever wondered, here are all the shows that I'm currently watching: The Good Wife, Downton Abbey, How I Met Your Mother, Happy Endings, New Girl, Ben & Kate, Modern Family, Up All Night, 30 Rock, The Office, Community, Parks & Rec, Elementary, Fringe, Saturday Night Live, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Portlandia, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I'm also catching up on episodes of Parenthood {I'm right at the end of Season 2}. Possibly this is too much TV for any one person to watch, but I think I'm okay with that.

28.5: Christian just turned to me and said, "You never published the second half of my books post." To which I answered, "You never sent it to me." And then HE said, "It was all part of the same document, dipstick." I checked. He was right. Whoops. So, coming soon to the blog...

28.6: Speaking of books, I'm still on page 46 of Life of Pi. I really need to get on that, but I have a hard time finding an opportunity to read. {Maybe it's all the TV I watch?} Do you have any tips? When do you read?


  1. You can eat as many Rice Krispy treats as you like :-)

    What is Ben and Kate?

    Have you read BossyPants?

    1. Ben & Kate is a sitcom about a single mom and her brother that airs Tuesdays on Tuesdays. It's okay, but not great.

      I haven't read all of Bossypants yet {only extracts that have shown up on other people's blogs}, but the parts I have read are hilarious. I know I need to read it, but I don't think it will change my opinion about Tina Fey. ;)

  2. Oooh Rice Krispy treats!!!! I need to come over. These are the best low sugar easy dessert ever!

    Also I love love love the pictures of the kiddies! My life just got a little more simple since being released from Primary so hopefully I'll resume my weekly visits to you!

    Last, I sometimes wish I could tweet whatever (mostly curse words - what?) on Twitter. I think a lot of people might think this.

    1. Of course we love to see you whenever you have time. :) Also, I just swore at my mom on Instagram today so... yeah.

  3. Dude. Rice Krispy treats are crack. I heard about this girl with a crazy impulsive junk food habit where she'd make a cake eat like half of it and then throw it away out of disgust but then realize she really did want to eat it so she'd get it out of the trash and eat some more. She resorted to spraying the food with Windex once it was in the trash. It was the only way she could keep herself to eating an entire cake. That's probably what I would have to do if I made a pan of Rice Krispy treats.

    Read Bossypants. I actually listened to it and it may be better that way b/c Tina reads it so the humor is delivered exactly how she wants it.

    I got my car serviced this week and read a book for ONE WHOLE HOUR. It was the longest I've read in one sitting since.... some time that I can no longer remember.

    Jericho and I watched the series finale of Fringe. We used to watch it and then stopped but then felt we should at least see how it ends. We have no idea the significance of anything that happened in the final episode.

    I have no idea why I had so much to say to this post. I think I need to get out more.

    1. I actually ate half of an entire pan of Rice Krispy treats two nights ago, and felt pretty sick afterward. But... they tasted good again today, so I didn't develop any kind of permanent taste aversion. I don't think I'm as out of control as that woman, though. I mean, that's intense. And disgusting.

      Listening to Bossypants sounds appealing. I think I'll give that a try.

      I completely understand leaving long comments on other people's blogs -- it's like having a conversation with another adult, and that's important when you spend your entire day with babies. No need to explain at all, really.

  4. I just finished up season 1 of Parenthood! I'm hooked!
    You reminded me that I need to get caught up on New Girl. I've missed the past few episodes.
    Your babies are SO cute!
