|My first plate of Royal Wedding mini gherkins, 2:30 a.m. PST, April 29th, 2011.|
25 - The total number of mini gherkins I ate while watching the Royal Wedding live.
21 plus change - How old I'm telling people I am.
$1,000 - The amount I contributed to our house down payment in April using a portion of my freelance earnings.
4 - The number of birthday cakes I received at various parties with friends and family. I feel truly lucky to have such great people who care about me, and let me know through processed sugar! The cake flavors were: mint-n-chip ice cream cake, coconut cake, carrot cake and red velvet. By May 1st I felt like Marie Antoinette (minus that whole guillotine thing)
Countless - The number of times I balked at something Tamra Barney said or did on Real Housewives of Orange County. She's so marvelously trashy and tragically hypocritical that I just can't look away. Its hard to believe people like her actually exist.
5 - The number of books I scored for well below market value at my neighborhood Borders that's closing. I know I should feel bad about making out like a bandit from someone else's misfortune, but it's hard not to feel like a satisfied little vulture picking at the last bits of flesh when all fiction is marked 50% off and more. My booty: The Stranger, The Feast of the Goat, The Wapshot Chronicle, My Antonia and Absalom, Absalom.
168 - The number of pictures I took. Great memories.
3 - The pairs of shoes I bought.
