When Crushing Goes Too Far

Posted in celebrities, experiments, extremely creepy with tags , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2009 by melsanie

Remember how I said that you should leave crushes as crushes?  Well, I kind of disregarding my own advice when my co-worker pointed me to this new feature on the Volkswagen site to make your own baby without actually “making” one.  These are pretty well known, but you use a picture of yourself and anyone else to see what your spawn would look like.  Of course, I used this amazing tool to see what my future children with my crushes would look like.  Results were mixed, but mostly adorable, which makes my crushes even more crazy because now I know how what our children will look like running around our back yard blowing bubbles and giggling…yeah…

Moral of the Story:  Crushing leads to being a crazy lady.

[UPDATE: Moral #2: I’m a creeper.]

Day 1

Andrea: And I just ate millet bread. I don’t know what millet is. I think it’s what they feed chickens?

Me: I ate a block of cheese last night as a last goodbye and now I feel ill. I don’t want to eat cheese ever again.

A Potentially Dangerous Experiment

Today my friend Andrea had an unfun discussion with her doctor:

Andrea: “uh, just got your test results back from last week, and you are allergic to MILK, EGGS, AND WHEAT”. BALLLLS!

Yeah, that sucks. Considering our diet consists mostly of cheese, omelets and pasta. And, um, of course with veggies, yeah.

So why do I want to go vegan (other than to support Adnrea?) One of my co-workers is vegan and I’ve considered becoming a vegan for a while since it’s a healthy diet and I really should not be eating as much of the crap I eat anyway. However, I’ve only been thinking about it because I mean, really, ACTUALLY doing it is really hard! (Also, I shouldn’t be eating dairy anyway since I’m lactose intolerant, but whatever. Details.)

So now, with Andrea’s actual inability to eat these “bad” things, I’ve decided to try it with her–kind of. She can eat meat and I can eat bread. We’re going to cheer each other on/complain to each other a lot while seeing how long it takes either one of us to crack and eat either a piece of cheese or scoop of ice cream. I’ll try to document it here, but not like this crazy chick on self.com–no one wants to see that. Wish us luck!
