Ask me ___questions, I will tell you ____lies

You guys were totally easy on me with these questions. Way to make me feel/sound suuuuper boring!

Whatcha Readin'?
Ahem. You don't really want to know the answer to this.

Two summers ago - the summer that D$ and I got married - my sister came up to Portland for the summer "to help with the wedding." Except she wasn't much help because we couldn't get her to stop reading these totally dorky books with ridiculous titles like A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings. I gave her raft of shit about it - incessantly yelling "A Storm of Swords!" at her in my best nerd voice.

...And now I am totally obsessed with the series and can't stop reading it. I just finished the second book (which is over 900 pages, btw) and am planning the rest of my day around getting a copy of the third one. Will Daenerys make it across The Narrow Sea to claim her throne? Will Catelyn see her children again? Do I like Tyrion, or hate him? What is going to happen with Arya? (I have my guesses about that one). These are important questions, people. 

Besides that, I have some books on Self-Esteem and Anxiety that my new therapist told me to read. Have I even opened them? No.

Did you wrap your cat in a sweater or did you find her like that? 
Have you ever tried to wrap a cat in a sweater? I think it would be pretty hard. Also that isn't a sweater. It's a blanket my grandmother knit me and the cats are obsessed with it. 

No, Uncle Fester definitely did that to himself and then lay there for several minutes in an effort to win the "cutest four-legged creature on the block" award. He totally won.

He often does the same thing with: paper bags, luggage, my underwear drawer.

What is something you'd change if you could, and why?
About me? Besides my mustache? Right now I'd really like to get rid of the anxiety that I feel pretty much constantly, about everything in my life. (If only I had someone to talk to about that, or some books to read or something...)

What is the temperature right now? How lovely is Oregon summer? 
So when I said "it is sunny all the time" I meant "it is sunny sometimes but otherwise still rainy and cold more than I want." Right now it is partly cloudy and maybe 60 degrees. Tomorrow it will rain and Saturday it will be 80 degrees and sunny. Do not be jealous, Jehara - the weather in Oregon exists solely to break your heart and confuse your wardrobe. A few weekends ago I got summer fever and hacked a pair of pants into cutoffs only to change into jeans and a coat three hours later. I will say that it is gorgeously green and I smell roses and lilacs everywhere I go. So that's nice. I guess.

That's all you got, people? Give me some hard ones! BIP where you at?


  1. If my therapist told me to read books about anxiety, I'd flap my arms around and scream, "I'm so freaking busy areyoukiddingme ohmygosh!!"


  2. "(If only I had someone to talk to about that, or some books to read or something...)" Hahahahahahaha. LOVE IT.

    See if your therapist is into hypnotism. We could email about this separately too, but I've strangely found it to be really helpful with the whole anxiety eating away my stomach like I swallowed some acid problem. No? Just me?

    I will think of a good question soon...

  3. I know. I am snobby about "self-help" books anyway so at first I was all, "WHAT?" BUt then I decided to be open-minded. I read the first few pages of one of the books last night and it seemed promising. Then again I was sorta drunk, it was 2 am and I was reading while I waited for D$ to get ready for perhaps my judgment wasn't all it could have been.
