When Being a Bitch Pays Off…

So— in lieu of me being a miserable bitch the past week, I must confess it worked only to my advantage. Now ladies, I don’t suggest you try this at home unless you are confident that your bitchiness will work in your favor. Some girls haven’t mastered the art of being a bitch yet. I can only tell you that in my breakdown to mr. right the other night, I was then showered in grocery store gifts. You might be wondering what this means…. Here is a photo to better represent it:

Thesis Survival Kit?? Oriental Lilies, because lilies are my favv flower. The April issue of People Style Watch with JENNIFER ANISTON on the cover, because well if you haven’t figured it out already, I love her. A bag of Heath bars and a bag of Almond Joys because those are my two top chocolates and you should know by now how much I love Chocolateee!!!

Let me also mention that he is no lovey-dovey kinda guy. I was completely shocked to see his efforts to cheer me up in such a heart felt gesture….. Again, this was a huge risk on my behalf to be such a crazy bitch just because my life was falling apart in front of me…. but for some reason, he saw the better side of me and loved me still.

There is this great Marilyn Monroe quote

I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.

I think this is important for us girls to remember. We aren’t perfect, but if we can find a guy who is willing to deal with those moments of absurd, ridiculous, unnecessary bitchiness…. and still love us, not only that but give us chocolate, jennifer aniston and a potted plant of lilies….. I think you should keep him around 🙂

I can’t give you all the answers, each fight is different… but try to keep your fight to one argument at a time. Don’t try to cover every single thing that bothers you–one warranted point should work just fine. Also, try to make your argument really strong. Believe it. Stick to it. If you do, he might start to as well. Finally, and I mean this seriously: Cry. Bawl your eyes out. Not just for him, but for you. Crying is necessary and what better time to do it then when you can get some sympathy and loving for it 😉

oh wait, I love chocolate too

I know I just posted but I had to mention one tiny little wonderful discovery I made with three tiny little wonderful girls.
1. Diego’s Restaurant located in Bowen’s Warf is worth the rainy walk on Thursday nights for $2 tacos and if you get a drink, they are only $1
2. Dessert options are……. please listen very carefully

Chocolate and Banana Empanadas which are $7 for two thick pastries filled with warm chocolate and bananas, baked, covered in sugar and cinnamon, drizzled with caramel and chocolate and paired with strawberry puree. Yes, I ordered them, took them home, devoured them and it was the happiest 10 minutes of my Thursday.

The Dessert Burrito also $7 for one tortilla filled with blueberries and cream cheese, fried, and then rolled and dipped in the same glorious toppings. No, I did not get these too, I’m not a size 2 for nothing… I’ll probably hit the gym at 6 am now, but seriously, go there, go there now, well not now but soon….. Tell them I sent you. They don’t know me, but I’ll still feel cool.
