Separated At Birth...

A lot of you have probably seen "The 40 Year Old Virgin". It's very good and, surprisingly, has a lot of heart. Apart from the fact that I'm not yet 40 and not a virgin, I couldn't help noticing how many things I have in common with Andy Stitzer, Steve Carell's character:
  1. My wardrobe largely consists of multicolored polo shirts. Like Andy, I favor the solid ones, but also own a few striped ones like in the picture above.
  2. I flat-out suck at meeting women.
  3. I look at the Q-Tip after cleaning out my ears to see how much wax was in there.
  4. I have a hobby that involves painstaking attention to detail. His was painting figurines. Mine is carving and painting fish.
  5. I watch Survivor (christ, how embarrassing).
  6. I get super nervous calling women. A lot of times I'll dial six of the numbers, but hesitate on the seventh until I decide I should wait until later.
  7. I live alone.
  8. I can remember being in situations with a bunch of guys and feeling awkward when the topic turned to sex. Just to clarify, not once did I think that a breast felt like a bag of sand.
  9. I often wake up with an erection which can create problems when it comes to urinating.
  10. I've been puked on while driving in a car. Granted, I puked on myself, but I can still relate to the feeling.

Ain't nothing wrong with watching Survivor. Own it!

In fact, I credit Lex (Africa and All-Stars) with saving me from an identity crisis when I was pregnant with my first child.

Hey those carved fish are pretty cool. And you look super cute & adorable working on them, and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise!

This movie was simply classic...there is nothing wrong with you though.

You said it vikkitikkitavi about the fish...that's a talent!
