i'm the kind of girl...

(why is it that women have a hard time calling themselves women? at what age do you start to feel comfortable calling yourself WOMAN, instead of girl, lady, gal, or chick? i often wonder when i'll fully own that word, woman... i roll it around in my mouth sometimes, and often almost let it escape my lips, but usually i change it at the last moment and still say girl. why?)

i'm the kind of girl:

* that sets up dates with ex-boyfriends while on vacation home, just to ensure that she has someone to make out with.
* that eats an entire container of hummus for lunch.
* who thinks that sweat is a good and necessary evil.
* that always daydreams about other adventures, and seems to have her head firmly immursed in the clouds.
* always wishes that she'd had a few sisters.
* wants babies but doesn't actually want to give birth. (get on that, science)
* can't help waiting til the last minute.
* has things to accomplish and should just get to it...

and with that... a hearty 'carry on'.

i never say woman! i usually don't say "man" either. makes me uncomfortable.

as for the other stuff:
1. well, i've never done this specifically, but i have flown across the country solely for the purpose of making out with someone i hadn't spent more than 24 hours with since high school
2. i do this far more often than is healthy/necessary.
3. it's just an inevitability.
4. yeah... in my head (especially when i'm on the treadmill) i am the world's best singer, dancer, choreographer, artist, doctor, beach volleyball player, etc.
5. i'm finally getting to know mine!
6. adoption!!
7. uh, yeah, this is why i just woke up from a two hour nap instead of doing the two lab reports i have due in two hours.
8. going to do that now. LOVE YOU!

Giving birth really isn't as bad as you think. I'd rather squeeze a baby out of my vagina than get my muff waxed.

guys, i want babies that look like me... duh.

oh yeah, and i don't want twins. is that bad? :)

arija said...

man, i am WITH KAREN on this one. i realize i've never given birth, but if it hurts half as much as a bikini wax, i'll adopt a whole country. woof.

I don't say woman either.

but man or men is an insult in my book. so when I use it I am most certainly a little pissed off at that sex.

PS - having a baby isn't bad if you have an epidural. however, I am so afraid of that huge needle that I did it the natural way and I would do the same thing next time. it sucked, but at least I don't have a 10 foot needle inserted into my spinal cord.

A) I've never eaten a whole container EVER

B) That's what surrogates are for.

C) I think you're only as old as you think you are. I'm always a woman now but when I'm 103 years old, I hope to be a girl again :)-
