A bullet-filled life


As per usual, I'm thinking in bullets. I think my life is a bunch of bullets, random ones, like this: 
  •  I love Diet Dr. Pepper in a serious way. We’re soul mates. Well, until I recently broke things off. It wasn’t Diet Dr. Pepper; it was the artificial sweetener I wanted to kick to the curb. So, for more than a week, no artificial sweeteners. So far, it hasn’t been bad (of course it’s only been a little more than a week). I’ve avoided pop (yep, I’m from the Midwest), and I just skip the sweet in coffee. It’s not the best, but it’s doable. I don’t think Diet Dr. Pepper is out of my life forever, but maybe it will be. At the most, I'll have it on a very special occasion as opposed to multiple times per week. Until then, DDP, you’re in my thoughts (and I still love you … sorry).
  • I have a confession: I haven’t run outside in a long time … weeks. I was stuck in the craptastic gym for a few days with the pesky tropical storm that hit Florida, and I don’t think I’ve run outside since. This is very, very strange. I don’t like running on the treadmill (or do I?). I’d always rather run outside (or would I?).
  • I recently joined Pinterest, and I’m in the trying-to-figure-it-out phase. I’ve found cool stuff on there, pinned it, and that’s it. Is that all you do? Oh, and add me (if you want a Pinterest idiot for a friend).
Thanks, Pinterest!
  • I got sucked in to the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy. I don’t really think it’s that well written, but I can’t put it down … not sure what that says about me. Oh, and my new catch phrase is “holy hell.”

  1. I also got sucked into the Fifty Shades craziness and by the end I was like these are the most poorly written books ever and yet read all three....so how bad can they be? I don't get pinterest and am trying to avoid any more reasons to spend multiple hours in front of the computer:). We will see how long I hold out.

    1. I must like bad writing because I'm tearing through the third book now.

      I avoided Pinterest for the same reason for a long time ... I finally gave in. Gah.

  2. I started reading 50 Shades and got stuck half way in. I haven't picked it back up...I will though, so don't tell me anything! ;)
    Oh, Diet Dr. Pepper. So good, yet so bad. I understand that relationship. I wonder if they'll start making it with truvia or stevia or something sometime? I stay away from soda for that reason too.
    I just joined Pinterest too and I have no clue how to use it. Let's be clueless together!! :)

    1. It is so delicious! But, I think I made a good decision to try and stay away from it.

      Oh, good! Glad I'm not the only clueless Pinterest user. :c)

  3. It's a horribly written book. And yet I couldn't put it down. All 3 are horribly written in fact. And yes, I read all 3. :)

    1. Sigh ... I'm on the third now, too.
