I Might Never Leave My House

I've been home for going on 5 days now with a sinus infection (they are kind of my thing). I'm definitely on the mend but I'm also definitely also coming down with a case of cabin fever and have had way too much time with myself.

So I've have got a few things/thoughts/observations/treasures found:

  •  I have been having this exhaustive internal debate about whether or not to get Amazon Prime.  The amount of time and mental energy I have put into this debate isn't worth the energy and yet here I go, toiling over the cost/benefit ratio and ROI.  I'm a little worried that if I get it I might never leave my house.  The West Wing, Alias, Fringe, Sherlock, Downton, are all free for the viewing.   I'm also a sucker for documentaries and bad romance flicks of which there is nearly an endless supply.  Thoughts? Who has it?  Do you leave your house still?
  • Best things about the Super Bowl

  1. Beyonce
  2. Mindy Kaling tweeting about Beyonce
  3. Nope, that's it, just two things.

Beyonce rocked it.  Like major.  Her tour dates were announced.  Who wants to go? Any city will do. I'm not joking.

  • My left leg is larger than my right. Most obvious when wearing boots. My right ear is slightly lower than my left.  Most obviously when wearing sunglasses. My index toes are longer than my big toe  which makes shoe shopping problematic. I'm missing 7 teeth but of the teeth I do have, the dentist says repeatedly, "Wow, you have perfect teeth, like PERFECT teeth."  30 years cavity-free and counting.  Gold star!
  • I had a super productive weekend despite my sinus infection.  I sorted clothes, did  A LOT of dishes, emptied and reorganize closets (PLURAL), hung pictures and shelves, scrubbed floors, vacuumed stairs, grocery shopped.  I put together a dresser that only took 3 trips to 2 different Fred Meyers because efficiency is over-rated.  All with a sinus infection which I'm not really sure how it all happened. 
  • I bought a bed skirt.  Add another notch in the belt of adulthood. 
  • Sometimes you have to cut off 8 inches of your hair to feel new.  I'm ok with that. 

  • I recently read that married women are perceived as better decision makers and command more credibility, so I've taken to occasionally wearing a big fat diamond on my ring finger.  On my last flight the gentleman next to me said, "I see you are wearing a ring, are you married?" To which I responded affirmatively and  found myself giving marriage advice to my seat neighbor.  He was asking all sorts of questions and  I was kind of blowing my own mind when I was hearing the words that were coming out of my mouth.   
  • While chatting with my other unattached colleagues we made plans for valentines day.  Another married co-worker got really excited and wanted to join us.  To which I said no. Here's the thing. If you're married when it is Valentines Day, you do not get to join in your unattached friend's activities.  In the same way your unattached colleagues and friends don't join you and your spouse on your Valentine's day activities.  As preposterous as the "holiday" is, that's the reality. However, this did inspire me to do something that married couples get to do but non-marrieds do not.  They great presents or getting married.  Well you know what, I now have a registry for being awesome and unattached.  Carrie Bradshaw did, so I shall too. 

If this is what happens when I don't leave the house I probably shouldn't get Prime.

i respectfully submit my opinion about prime: do it. i share your love for documentaries and foreign films and just last night watched an incredible one that i would have otherwise missed if i had not had prime. also, free 2 day shipping cannot be overrated. oh, and i do leave the house ;) just not on sunday evening which is dedicated to watching the aforementioned documentaries and downton abbey.
