Soo ...

been thinking.

I should probably get married some day.

I've come up with a couple reasons why {in no particular order}:

1. I will never have to worry about finding a roommates again.

2. I won't be ridiculously taken advantage of by the IRS with taxes.

3. I will have someone to call and cry to if one of the fifthly beasts finally gets me and Wilson.

4. I can rename my blog to hubby'snameandmindy.blogspot.com.

5. And, of course, most importantly, I will finally be able to fill out a husband-tag.

Annnd, yeah ... Those are the only reasons I've got so far. If I missed anything, forsurely let me know. :)


In my next post, I think I will be discussing why I am probably not married yet. I know you all look forward to that. :)


Oh, deer!

For those of you who think my fear is irrational, stop your mocking and click there --> CURSE THE FILTHY BEASTS!! My deepest sympathies go out to Steve and Jessica for having to live my greatest fear.

Secondly: I demand to know who the following people are:

Susan R.

Who are you people? Where did you come from? How did you find my blog? Do I know you and just don't remember you? Don't think of this as an interrogation ... Think of it is as me reaching out to you, a stranger, in complete warmth and kindness. :)

And thirdly, another entertaining moment at work ... A client came into my office area the other morning, having just arrived. His roommate, also another client, was on his way in, but a few feet back. As client #1 enters he says, "Mindy, watch out! Pat* is in a baad mood! He might call you a B-A-C-H!"

How dare he!? I'm so insulted! No one should ever be compared to that 18th century composer! How rude! (P.s. Did you know he had 20 children!? No, not my clients, but B-A-C-H).

And since every blog post should have a photo, here's the loathsome composer:

He's so chill.

*Pat is not actually the name of my client. I think from now on I am going to refer to all people whose names I cannot or prefer not to share as Pat ... Plus, it's gender ambiguous. Perfect.


Shocking! Shocking, I say!



I want you to know ... I tried super hard to put these in precise order of least shocking to most shocking ... But at one point I kinda just got lazy. Also, if anyone is not referred to by specific name, it means I wanted to keep them anonymous {obviously}. So all of the "he's" are not the same person or all of the "hers" are not the same girl. Got it?

Without further adieu {two points for anyone who makes a drum roll noise on their desk this very moment}...

Just in case you were wondering ...

I am taller than all of the following men.

Yes. All of them. Even Rocky. Who woulda guessed? Now you can see why every hope of ever being a leading actress: shattered.

I'm roughly the same height as these ones.

However, these dudes are taller.

Tom Welling at 6'3", Will Smith at 6'2", John Travolta also 6'2" and Vince Vaughn at 6'5". Although, ever since Domestic Disturbance Vince Vaughn has kinda creeped me out ... Oh, well. Creepy or not, taller is taller.

Pointless post? You bet.


To whom it may concern: I used to be only a fan of insanely TALL men. It would be safe to say that is no longer necessarily true. :)


The enemy ...

That's right, folks. The nasty beasts have now migrated down to my apartment complex. Nightmare of all nightmares when I woke up two mornings ago to hear a little child's voice say, "Look, mommy! Deer tracks!"

I have never really believed myself to be a gun-owning woman. Now might be the time to reconsider.



Five golden stars to anyone who knows why I loathe deer.
