Boys vs Cookies

Girls are to boys what cookies are to girls...

(The following is what goes through ones' head before "consuming" their temptation)

*That looks like a tasty treat...
*The temptation isn't really worth it.
*Do I REALLY want to commit to this cookie?
*Just one little nibble isn't really commitment right?
*I don't even like this cookie!
*Oh well, I just want to put my mouth on something...
*Oh gosh, there's no going back now
*When am I going to learn self control?
*Im going to regret that in the morning


My Boyfriend <3

Not my favorite song by him, but today it is.

I'm not afraid of you now
I know so I climb down from the bunk bed this slow
I can talk back to you now
I know from a few things that I learned from this TV show
You can work late til midnight; we don't care
We can fix our own meals, we can wash our own hair
I go to school before sunrise in the cold
And I pulled the alarm and I kicked up the salad bowls

Since the time we meant to say much more
Unsaid things begin to take their toll
After school we shovel through the snow
Drive upstate in silence in the cold

You can remind me of it
That I was lazy and tired
You can work all your life
As I'm not afraid of you anymore

If I loved you oh a long time
I don't know if I can recall the last time you told me so
Here in this house in Pittsfield
The ghost of our grandmother works at the sewing machine post
Hhiding the bills in the kitchen, on the floor,
And my sister lost her best friend in the Persian Gulf War.
There was a flood in the bathroom last May
And you kicked at the pipes when it rattled, oh the river it made

Stand there, tell me that I'm of no use
Things unspoken break us if we choose
There's still time to wash the kitchen floor
On your knees, the bath, the sink once more
You can remind me that I was tired
You can work late and do yourself honor
Now that I'm older, wiser and working less
I may regret having left the place a mess

You can remind me
That I was lazy and tired
You can work all your life
As I'm not afraid of you anymore


I confess...

I dance in the shower


Dyers + Dachshunds = <3

Seriously though, who could resist this?...

So it's no secret that Dyers love dachshunds. I suppose we get it from Grandpa Dead-Eye since he grew up with them. Sometimes I wonder how healthy our obsession is though. I mean, they are kinda stubborn and are territorial, but we love them anyway. (I've been told if I were a dog, I'd be a dachshund... I don't know if that's a compliment). They are plenty adorable though.

Things Im addicted to...

This blog is inspired by the twin on the right....

(a not so subtle shout out to you, Matt)

This man is uncontrollably addicted to 44 oz drinks from the ever so cheap, Horkley's. He frequents the gas station at least twice a day, usually more, for a cold Dr Pepper. You better believe when the DP is out, everyone knows about it.

I began to think about my addictions. We all have them. Let's see how many things we both can't live without...

*Diet Coke from Sonic with cherry and vanilla... the ice is the best part!

*G's Dairy (Thanks for keeping them in business year round with me Meg)


*Horkley's.. it had to be on there


*Cookies... preferably chocolate chip. Especially from Subway or Ben's cookies. YUM!

*Flirt texting

*Sufjan Stevens

*Chocolate chip pancakes... (I know. There's a lot of food on here. I've actually left a lot out. Like the cheesy bean and rice burrito from Taco Bell)

*Concerts... Especially the moment at a show when you can't help but close your eyes
