Our "new" living room

so we decided we are going to purchase various expensive furnishings gradually over the next few years so that we don't go bankrupt eventually trying to furnish a house. we used my excess per diem from my month long sabatical to Philly to buy an ottoman. it rules. but then it looked out of place with our hand me down rug. so we shopped. and shopped. and shopped. we were looking for something with red in it (the only color we can usually agree on), but found this one instead. we added some pottery barn pillows (they were on clearance!) and a cheap blanket from sam's club and i think we're well on our way to an actual living room instead of a bunch of hand me down stuff! notice the basket to the right of the couch. that is courtesy of megs and erin king. doesn't it look awesome there!?

I Can't Feel My Legs - I have no Legs!

so the other night i was sleeping soundly in my bed at the residence inn in central city philadelphia. i woke up at 2:30 in the morning and needed to use the restroom. i sleepily pulled back the covers and stood up. and collapsed. thinking to myself, again sleepily, that was weird, i tried to stand up again. and collapsed again. so i kneeled by the bed for a few minutes, until i realized that it my leg was really heavy...
it turns out it had fallen asleep. and i fell on my butt twice. hard.
this was the first time i have ever had my leg fall asleep, and quite frankly it was scary. especially at 2:30am. i can't figure out whether it would have been scarier if i was totally awake or if i would have figured out what was going on faster and therefore it would have been less scary. either way, it was weird. but made a great story for everyone in the morning.

Even Better

So i ran mike's picture. he looks like daniel day louis, zamfir the pan flutist, and most importantly, tom welling. i knew i married him for a reason.
perhaps the highlight of the night was when i ran a funny picture of greg from the big snowstorm in denver. he resembles, by 54%, Bjork. i laughed so hard i cried.
that is a thought that will keep me smiling to myself ever so slightly for the next week or so.

I look like who?

finally, i have returned from philadelphia for good. i think. i might have to go back in 6 weeks, but then again, maybe i'll get to venture somewhere else. but that's beside the point.
i ran my face through it scans your face and determines which celebrities have facial structures similar to yours. i was totally surprised by the results. i never would have guessed....
for starters, i used this terribly flattering picture of myself.

my results were as follows:
- Brittinay Murphy 64%
- Natalie Imbruglia 63%
- Priety Zinta 63% (i don't know who this is, but there are worse people i could look like!)
- Eva Longoria 62%
- Cindi Lauper 62%
- Jennifer Lopez 60% (maybe they were comparing my butt instead of my face....)
- Gwen Stefani 60%
- Lucille Ball 60%
i don't look like any men. i suppose that's a good thing.
