Do any of you remember the episode of Pee Wee's Playhousewhere he married fruit salad? He was eating fruit salad at snack time and said he looooooved it, and one of the other characters (Conky 2000?) said "well why don't you marry it?". That episode left quite an impression on me, it seems, as I'm pretty sure I'm about three days away from leaving my wife for the new blanket I bought for our bed. She posted to Facebook last weekend that I was having an affair with the blanket, and, well, it's kinda true. When I washed the bedding last weekend I shaved my legs in the middle of the afternoon specifically so that I could match freshly shaved legs with freshly washed bedding and die of happiness. It. Was. Awesome. I'm sure my fuzzy-blanket love affair has nothing to do with the fact that I haven't bothered to turn on the heat or close our bedroom window, despite night time lows in the 30s. No, that can't possibly have anything to do with it.
In other make-my-week awesome news, I got a thank you card in the mail yesterday from my dentist thanking me for the nice review I left for her on Yelp (Dr. Lani Basco for the locals who care). A thank you card! All handwritten and nice and longer than the actual review I left. I have seriously found the nicest dentist on the planet. You all should move here just to see her.
Tomorrow my day will be made awesome in the evening, when I'm going to hang out with my nutritionist, Jennifer Vimbor, at her house where she will continue her quest to teach me to cook. My blood sugar is improving, I've lost 16(!) pounds, and I can run a whole mile without stopping now, so clearly the woman is a genius. Also, she's a hell of a lot of fun to hang out with. Last time I was over we were cooking and chatting till nearly midnight, which is impressive since we are both the types to wake up at four in the morning. She was all ready to set me up to move into the spare bedroom permanently we were having so much fun. This time, however, I'm coming prepared with my laptop and well-stocked iTunes, because while we have awesomely compatible tastes in music, she hassomething like 258 songs on her computer. I think I might have play lists longer than that. So while Jennifer is expanding my food-world, I'll be expanding her music world. Thanks to the likes of my wife and my friend Jody, I've got a lot of music to share.
In summary, I may leave my wife to marry a blanket, or to move in with my nutritionist. But only if she lets me bring the blanket.
