| You scored as Remy-This Lullaby. You are Remy, from This Lullaby. Responsible and independent, you’re not afraid to take charge of matters that need to be taken care of. so many detached relationships that something concrete just might throw you completely out of whack. You can be a little bit vengeful and quick to accuse, but overall, you are fiercely loyal and will always stand up for what you believe in.|
Score! To be honest, though, I think of all my characters I’m the LEAST like Remy, which is probably why she was so fun to write. I’ve always said I don’t want to do sequels, but if I ever change my mind, This Lullaby would be the one I’d want to go back to. It was just so much fun. Whenever I do take these quizzes though—and thanks to whoever designed it, as it is VERY detailed, and obviously took some work—it seems wrong that I end up as anyone specific, since really, I am all of my narrators, in one way or another. Still, very cool.
In other news, a confession: I buy cheap coffee. Yes, I know. It’s shameful. But since we only drink about a half a pot daily in this house, it always seemed kind of wasteful to splurge on the good stuff. So Eight O’Clock it was, not the best, but not the worst, either (unless I make it, in which case it is terrible: I can’t make coffee to save my life. When my husband is out of town I usually just go without, or go out. Which is also really wasteful, now that I think about it). Anyway, a few weeks back, my husband went out of town to visit some friends. And apparently, these people gave him good coffee, something gourmet-y, that smelled nice and had a good flavor. So he came back determined that we up our coffee game. Now, a pack of Eight O’Clock is about four bucks. When I went to the grocery store to look for something “nicer” I saw that Starbucks brand and the like are all around eight or nine. Yikes! That’s a lot, especially when we toss about half the pot every day. (And I know you can make less than a pot, but it never tastes right, I’m sorry.) Newman’s Own Organic, however, was on sale for $6.99 (which I know is the same as seven, but I’m a sucker from that marketing technology, what can I say) so I bought a pack of Almond Biscotti Caramel or something equally ridiculous sounding. Then, I promptly forgot about it. Until about five minutes ago, when I sat down here with my half a cup, took a sip and…wow. It’s GOOD. Like, doesn’t just taste good, but is smooth and fragrant and okay, maybe not worth an additional three bucks but definitely, say, $2.99. Yum. Too bad I’m trying to give coffee up altogether. I cannot see this helping.
Finally, in exciting news perhaps only for me, Grey’s Anatomy Season Two comes out on DVD today. I know EVERYONE in the world saw last season, and that it was fantastic and the finale made everyone weep their way through a box of Kleenex. I also know that they rerun a lot of episodes this summer. But I am a purist, and I wanted to wait until I could watch them in order, without commercials. We’re going on vacation at the end of the month, and I told myself I was going to save the DVDs until then, when I could curl up and watch them back to back to back to back. But it’s going to be awfully hard to wait, I think. Maybe I can just watch one? Or, two? Ah, it’s a slippery slope, though. Just like that coffee. Hmmmm.
