The Other Woman – Romantic Monday

Welcome!! This is my offering for the first official Romantic Monday, freshly founded by the one and only Edward Hotspur. Click here to read his romantically romantic post. Please don’t judge me too badly as you watch this little introduction I’ve thrown together. But do enjoy the background music and the beautiful face of my very best friend. (And just a reminder…it’s New Jersey, not New Joizey.)

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way….

Here is our list of everything we adore that makes us romantically connected in the most non-homosexual way (for the most part) ever.

1.) Blood does not run through our veins. Cabernet Sav-ing-yong (in that voice from the video) does. This proves we are blood related.

2.) We always end up having the same clothes, like the same pair of leopard print draws from Walmart. (Don’t judge me….clearance…) As we got changed one afternoon, we both pointed to each other’s asses and yelled, “HEY!!!!”. This has gone on for quite a few years now. Jeans, shirts, all by mistake. This demonstrates our amazing – and identical – fashion sense.

3.) What is usually every man’s fantasy – but is Joe’s nightmare – the other Nicole (on those really, really drunk nights) will sometimes sneak into our bed. She’s the teaspoon, I’m the big spoon, Joe is the salad serving spoon. On these nights he remains fully clothed, jeans and all – studded belt, too – to avoid awkwardness. I feel bad for him as we talk in “the voice” before we fall into a deep slumber. That poor, poor man. (He enjoys calling us “dumb broads”.) This proves, as the big spoon, that I am the man in the relationship. *sigh*

4.) As more proof that we are non-sexual soul-mates, Romantic Monday falls on our official “day of play”; every Monday is full of drunken debauchery and cooking some amazingly yummy food. Of course, it’s always after a 3-10 mile run. As the other Nicole’s pop would say, “It’s all about balance, baby!” “hahaha” – the other Nicole.

This man is 58 years old and runs every. single. day. And loves his beer maybe more than we do. ūüėČ

5.) Our passion for fun music gets our shoulders shakin’ and our booties movin’. Oh, yesh (video voice).

Even as we were posting this, we had to stop to sing, “DARKNESS, DARKNESS DARKNESS.”

6.) We are foooooo-deez. We make margarita pizza, and tilapia, and artichoke spinach dip, and more pizza, and chicken, and more pizza, and delicious, blush, vodka sauce, yummy, delicious, pasta…..and we top everything with cheese. (Healthy cheese.) ūüėČ

We couldn’t help but dig in before we took the picture.

7.) We share a mutual love of tattoos….so we just had to get one two-gethaaaaaa.

;

;

8.) We love Halloween, and we love dead things, and haunted walk-throughs, and every year – instead of letting the breasts and booties hang out – we like to look like someone just ran us over. Lots of blood.

9.) This one doesn’t necessarily connect us, but the other Nicole is one talented “lova” (nickname…video voice). Ch-ch-check it out. Click here, seriously. DO IT. Amazing things happening there. Everything completely handmade. I own 3 purses.

10.) ::drumroll::

My love for running is shared by my best friend. “YEY!” – the other Nicole. (She likes to spell “YEY” that way. I do not.) So, basically, back in the day, the other Nicole’s running father forced us to run and we almost died. But now, we are running beasts! She has completed a ten miler, and I recently finished my first half marathon. But by far….the Color Run is the funnest, most epic run we’ve ever completed (we’ve done it twice).

We completed another Color Run about 2 months ago, and our mutual love of fun music was clearly demonstrated……

My non-homo girlfriend, my partner in crime, my let’s-forget-the-world-and-get-tipsy lova, the one (besides Joe) who reads my mind when I shoot her a look. We tell it like it is, we hold nothing back, she’s a pain in my ass, I’m a pain in hers, we love and laugh and hug and fuel each other creatively and laugh again. She is amazing enough to be my first Romantic Monday post.

Enjoy (I hope).

Twit Skyblogger Award

Look what I got!!!!!!

A huge thank you to the always hilarious and witty Edward Hotspur  for calling me a twit and also honoring me with my first blogging award, the Twit Skyblogger Award.

I’d also like to thank myself, for being awesome enough to receive this award.

In accepting this award, there are certain rules I must follow, according to Mr. Hotspur. And so, here are the following:

1.)¬†“Post a picture of something silly.”¬†These stupid “memes” crack me up every time.¬†

2.)¬†“Tell everyone 5 things about yourself that are painfully¬†embarrassing. Or tell everyone 5 things about other people you know.”

Hmph…I suppose I’ll reveal 5 things about myself. Not that you can prove they’re the truth or anything…

1 – I didn’t know Santa Clause was a fraud until I was 10. (If you’re 10 and you’re reading this, sorry. If you’re past 10 and you now feel cheated…I’m sorry¬†for¬†you. I felt¬†embarrassed¬†enough at 10.)¬†

2 – I once leaned backwards into a candle and lit my hair on fire.

3 РI once went half a day at school with my shirt on inside out; until someone finally let me know it was on wrong. (Hey, this was painfully embarrassing as an 11 year old.)

4 – My first experience with alcohol included a six pack of Smirnoff Ice and a solo cry fest….

5 – In the third grade, I was the best speller in class; I was chosen to represent our class in the school’s annual spelling bee, where my nerves took over and I spelled the word “amazing” wrong.¬†Painfully¬†wrong. Don’t ask me how wrong. I don’t wanna talk about it.

3.) “Tell everyone your favorite joke.”

My favorite jokes are inappropriate for my blog. ūüėČ

4.) “Finally, before you hit publish on your acceptance blog post, right click, hit ‘paste’, and paste whatever is in your buffer into the post. You must hit ‘publish’ after that, no matter what you just pasted.”¬†

230 Pension Road Englishtown, NJ (732) 446-7800

Well that’s no fun….but wanna know what that address meant to me today? Here it is:

Another one of these things.

Happy Saturday!!! I’m off to do some novel work. ūüôā
