    OH, Blackberry Curve? I’m due for a new phone, and trying to decide between a blackberry or the I-phone. Hmmm, so many decisions.

    Love the Killers, need to listen to the Decemberists.

    I’ll have to check out the Decemberists if you love the Killers.
    Have you tried Forgive Durden or Carolina Liars?

    I share in your sleep deprivation- I was only going to read a few pages of “Twilight” last night before I went to bed…. that plan didn’t work so well. Although my friend has me beat- she read the second book in 2 days and was up till 4:30 last night finishing it.

    Have a fantastic weekend !

    I love your monthly recaps!!

    Adorable picture!!

    I’m so jealous of everyone going to Vegas, I was seriously considering it then I remembered I won’t be 21 until September!!!! So I figured there’d be no point, next meet-up I am there though :-)

    Take some of your workouts outside! It might help you get over the gym-blahs!

    I so want the Blackberry Curve. My Dad just got the smaller newish Blackberry, and I am so jealous.

    I have no idea what tea biscuits are but they sound delightful.

    I just Blockbustered Felicity on DVD.

    I <3 chocolate too.

    I un-<3 daily task excel spreadsheets. They are bogus.

    :] TGIF.

  17. E.P. May 1, 2009 at 5:06 pm #

    I am totally looking forward to Vegas, too, and I’m loving your recaps! Y’all are such a cute couple!

    Also, when are you going to NOLA?

  18. Habbala May 1, 2009 at 6:37 pm #

    I want to go to Vegas!!! Isn’t it part of any break-up ritual? Craziness in Vegas?! I think it is… let me check the rule book….

    I love your recaps, such a good idea. Would you mind if I borrowed the idea (giving you amazing words of praise and credit of course?)

  19. andhari May 2, 2009 at 1:44 pm #

    I love, love, love playing with my BB curve too. It’s an addiction.

    ps. I would love a beach vacation myself. And not eating chocolates as often as I do right now ;P So hard.

  20. Irish May 2, 2009 at 1:56 pm #

    I think that the picture I’m holding in that picture looks kind of like me.
    Hmmmmmmmmmm.
    That’s some MC Escher sh*t.

  21. AuburnKat May 3, 2009 at 7:46 pm #

    LOVE this list!!! I’ve been obsessed with my BB for over a year now!

  22. Rebekah May 4, 2009 at 12:18 pm #

    Ooh, beer festival… wanna go to Brewfest in Forest Park June 5 or 6? Email me :o)

  23. oh May 4, 2009 at 8:16 pm #

    current indulgence: SLEEP! oh yeah, i totally agree on that one. It’s also kinda funny to hear you say that – kind of a family thing, n’est-ce pas?

  24. oh May 4, 2009 at 8:19 pm #

    the sleep thing is, I mean, kind of a family trait.

    My indulgence? drive thru hot fudge sundae to eat while reading chick lit!

  25. SSG May 5, 2009 at 3:24 am #

    slap-happy from lack of sleep, lol! And the Decemberists, I love them too. And Killers will also be fun. Ooh i gotta book my plane tickets for NYC, I want to go to the US!
