Back from the dea- HOLY CRAP!

Anyone get that Strong Bad reference? Ahem.

Since my blogging sabbatical, I chopped and darkened my hair, absorbed unhealthy amounts of Canadian fiction, took daily baths whether I need them or not, promoted, performed in a play, inhaled coffee, and avoided cleaning the apartment.

Oh, and I gave birth to twins and finally wrote that "I'm-Setting-the-Catholic-World-on-Fire" dramatic piece. (I hope you know I'm kidding. I'm such a kidder.)

In payment for my absence, I will share somewhat embarrassing tidbits of my newlywed life. Sorry, husband.

Darin continues to amuse me with his nocturnal chatter and odd habits. For example!

"ARGH! That's ridiculous!!"
"I'll just have some NyQuil with a side of ribs."
"I know I logged off, but it's okay."

Today I discovered that Darin cups his hands over his ears in the shower so shampoo doesn't creep in. I'm not sure why, but that's kinda cute.

And here is where I owe my darling husband an apology. A couple nights ago, Darin and buddy Carl stayed up into the wee hours working on a website. Since I had an early work day ahead of me, I crashed earlier than usual. I slept peacefully and didn't even notice when Darin scrambled into bed. My lovely slumber didn't last much longer.

I awoke to a smell... a stench, rather... a motley of sewage, burning rubber, and brown rice... I gasped and abruptly sat up.

"Did you just...?"

Darin squealed, jumped, and began fanning the blankets in attempt to dilute the foul odor, failing miserably of course. David just couldn't beat Goliath. Now, this sorry event could have ended up in divorce for some couples, but Darin and I settled our- differences- and ended the night with a tickle fight and hug. Let this be a lesson to you.

It's my bedtime, friends! Wish me luck.

Nocturnal chatter...that is a very amusing name for sleep talking. I like it. :-) Thanks for the update. As usual, I laughed my head off. You're too funny! I hope you plan on updating a little more often now...

Louise said...

Yes, Emily! I promise!

lou, people are giving me disturbed looks and most likely they continue to question my sanity, as I burst out laughing for no apparent reason upon reading the 'nyquil with a side of ribs' comment. (I don't know if we'd serve that at applebee's...but if you guys came over I'm sure I would try to work something out.)

I wish I could come to the reunion and last hurrah, but as it is I'm swamped with finals and papers during my last week in Austria this semester. However, I thank you for making it bearable. I make a study break out of reading different people's blogs, therefore it is your responsibility as a former student to post as much as possible during the last two weeks of the semester in order to keep us sane. (too many big words, and just too many words in general! ARGH! bloody schoolwork!)

Can I just say louis that I will never read your blog in public. I was laughing so hard in the University of St. Thomas Library and had everyone stare at me. So I got on intercome and decided to announce your blog to the whole library system, all 7 floors. It just goes to show that newly weds are truly happy eachother and that a marriage can stay together. Love much Louise

Louise said...

Oh, Joe. This blog is completely private! Why else would I post on the INTERNET? ;)

Emily said...
