What would you think if I told you I was going to an accounting conference to celebrate my 40th birthday?
Now, what if I told you that the accounting conference was in the Bahamas?
And you didn't think there were perks to being married to an accountant. Technically my birthday falls after we get back, but since the conference fell the week before I decided it was a sacrifice worth making. I've told you, I'm a giver. A giver who can't wait for someone else to make her bed already.
In other news, elections are finally over so I can watch "The Biggest Loser" without having to consider the irony of the ticker tape updates flashing at the bottom of the screen. What is ticker tape anyway? Am I even using it in the right context? I'm sorta hoping it's something only old people know about and that by referencing my ignorance I can retain a portion of my youth. Unlike the time I was listening to my retro iTunes and I said, "Turn it up! It's by OMD!" And my kids were like, "OMG?!" And I said, "No, O...M...nevermind." Not to worry, one day they'll be raising their own kids and be all, "Remember Snookie and the Bump It?" and their kids will roll their eyes and go, "As if."
Besides, what do I care? I'm going to the Bahamas!
