Kisses+Disses : Question Mark or Period

I
ran around the house feeling the weight of everything that had to be done before my deadline. Oh, have I mentioned how much I love deadlines? I make deadlines for deadlines, so don't mess with me and my calendar. As I hurriedly stuffed items into a bag, I conversed with JD while he sat in an adjacent room. I went on and on...and then said, I think I talk too much...

And here's where the story diverges.

Here's my version:
...and then said, I think I talk too much, and JD replied, You do.

Here's his version:
...and then said, I think I talk too much, and JD replied, You do?

Oh yes, Internet, my husband just played the Question Mark Game. The one where a guy insists he ended the sentence with a question mark--not a period--to get out of a sticky situation. By ending it with a question mark, he acted like he was shocked to hear such a thing. YOU? TALK TOO MUCH? NEVER!!

It hurt my feelings (to be honest, I think I was having an overly sensitive day...I cried at a Folgers commercial earlier that day), and he apologized. And then he said he didn't mind me talking so much because he was a great LISTENER. Riiiiiight.

Now it's time for another installment of Kisses and Disses...


This week's DISSES go to...
* Question marks. Obvi.
* Project Runway. Is it just me or is this season uber boring? It feels like a burlap dress.
* Folger's commercials. Now that the holiday season is upon us, those promos make me all teary-eyed and emo.


This week's KISSES go to...
* Sunset. I watched a full sunset yesterday and I was reminded to do it more often.
* Sparkling water. It's my most favorite drink and I'm annoyingly addicted to a glass of Perrier. Every.single.night.
* Modern Family. This show just makes me laugh...and I can't help but think JD is my own Phil Dumphy. Go ahead, be jealous.

Happy Wednesday!

Denise Prichett - Perrier is good. I like club soda too. Because I don't drink alcohol and I hate it when they serve a coke in a plastic cup during happy hour like I am a kid, I was on a club soda with a bit of lime or lemon kick for a while. It is actually making my mouth water right now. Lol  11.16.11 - 4:29pm
Katelyn James - Michael and I had that "do I talk too much" conversation a while back... and I cried and worried I'd over dominate conversations the rest of my life! So dramatic. And Modern Family is an Alsop family fav!!! One week it wasn't tivo'd and we were heartbroken!!!  11.16.11 - 3:35pm

Roma Czulowska - Jasmine, my palms are sweaty because after being addicted to you your FB and blog finally I found a courage to write to you (it is different to admire somebody from an unseen corner and different to say it out loud in public...). I am an aspiring photographer trying to earn my spot in the ocean full of talentented photographers. It is harder then I expected but I am still trying... So I just wanted to thank you for being present. It is amazing how much positive energy and encouragement you are able to send out through... electronic devices;). As many people before me said you inspire! P.S. You are an absolutely Great Photographer with a Soul but sometimes I think that you are even greater writer. I adore your posts! And you make me laugh so hard. P.S.2. Sorry for any possible language mistakes. English is my second language. P.S.3. Can you please also tell me how many pictures you and JD shoot during the wedding, how many of them you present to the client and finally how many pictures your client receives. Here comes a question from pragmatic part of me...;) P.S.4. Say hi to JD! Have a gret day! Roma  11.16.11 - 9:29am

B - Phil? So that would make you Claire. Obvi. ;) At least Matt didn't compare you to a mix between Cam and Gloria. Yeah, that's bad.  11.16.11 - 8:36am
Malvina - Oh +1 for Perrier! Try it with lemon juice on your next sunset :)  11.16.11 - 8:35am
Rachel Tatem - I totally know what you mean with the ? game. My husband does it too. But when he usually does it he is being UBER sardonic... which is like a slap across the face. I mean, we know we do whatever it is... but you don't have to be mean about it! ;P  11.16.11 - 8:35am
Malvina - Oh +1 for Perrier! Try it with lemon juice on your next sunset ;)  11.16.11 - 8:34am
