Our Way To Fall

Him: You know, I like you a lot.

Me: My like for you is Stay-Puft sized.

Him: Before or after the melt-o-rama action?

Me: Before. Right when Ray conjured him when he was big n' rampage-y.

Him: Wonderful. Our relationship terrorizes cities and gives innocent children horrible nightmares.

Me: IT'S JUST THAT POWERFUL.

Him: Always nice when there's the off chance you might be crushed or have your soul devoured.

Me: Fine. But how can I quantify my feelings without likening them to remorseless monsters?
__________

So yeah. I may have fallen face first into a relationship. Or stepped in a big pile of smitten. Either way, I don't reference Reitman flicks unless it's got potential.

Stay tuned...

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but that same pie-chart can be repurposed later:

PINK: Time spent in Awesome Relationship

GREY: Time spent talking about what a total mistake it all turned out to be.

pj said...

great stuff! been reading for a bit now and just figured i would delurk.

pink - time spent thinking about the future

grey- time making it happen.

Hot Librarian said...

Though I'm oft the pessimist, I prefer pj's take on future charts.

Beth said...

Woot!

Can you share your awesome man-meeting secret?!

Or hell, sell it?!

audgepodge said...

Oooh... juicy! Can't wait to hear more!

punchlinewalking said...

Oh man...I love this.

Tracer Bullet said...

Oh sure. It's all hearts and flowers and rampaging monsters now. But in about two weeks he'll walk in wearing your panties and demanding to be called "Mildred" and telling you he can't get off unless you cram a pineapple up his butt. What? DON'T YOU JUDGE ME.

The Dutchess of Kickball said...

Aw, you are a smitten kitten!

Kate Savage said...

Ooh-ooh-ooh!

Me, too! Me, too!

"How many ways are we awesome?"

"Let's not count the ways, it would take too long."

"We're icky, aren't we?"

"We're sick. Sick, sick and so right."

Congrats and good luck!

Mike G said...

YOU are luckier than a DINOSAUR. That's the conversation that ends with a ring on the right finger...the propper finger. Whatever.

emily said...

Yay! Wait, wait, fell face-first this past weekend? ... And now a pause while I madly speculate.

christina said...

awesome, j-money. it brings back memories when i made my like for my boyfriend official on the internet.

Mermanda said...

Totally awesome!

M in SF said...

but isn't it such a great way to spend your time?

Curly Su said...

me too. awesome and also kind of scary, eh?

Michael said...

I celebrated my fourteenth wedding anniversary today. Honestly, it's still that good.

So hurrah for finding someone just crazy enough to put up with one's self!

Heather @ Desperately Seeking Sanity said...

I am right there with you... we'll see how this one goes... so far so good.

nuttycow said...

Yay for you! Am I the only one in the entire world who has no idea who the new squeeze is? It sounds all fabulous though (despite the fact that I have no idea what the icky conversation is referencing - is that because I'm a Brit?)

Tara Shleser said...

I notice you changed your status on Facebook, so it must be the real thing. I think we need pictures! Oh, and tell Runtie that I said congratulations.

Bogart in P Towne said...

Sweet...sorta like a really big marshmellow.

Now, put it in the microwave and it will get even bigger!

TC said...

I love the pie chart. I want the pie chart again. And I'm glad you're getting to enjoy the pie chart.

Dazed and Confused said...

Aaahh, young love, and talk of the Sta Puft man (how romantic!), here's hoping you make it to the Godzilla stage!

TheDAS said...

Yay for relationships, and congratulations! Having just gotten married, and then gone through a string of 5 weddings in 6 weekends I'm glad there is still more love in the world!

...However I know I can't be the only one thinking this with the Sta-Puft Love but what happens when they cross the streams?

emmysuh said...

Squee! So excited for you. Dun dun dun...what happens next?

Xenia said...

Woo hoo! More details, I want them.

peeppeep said...

Squee!

Hollywood Sucker said...

squee! excitement!

nancypearlwannabe said...

Woot! Fall fun is the very best kind.

stealthnerd said...

well that is just SO exciting! nothing better than that face-first plunge...especially when the other person is plunging too.

Did I just turn your relationship into something you do to a toilet? Because that was so not my intent.

CONGRATS!!!

heidi said...

just enjoy it. every morsel. *sigh*

Andy said...

I am wondering if I can express my feelings to my new girlfriend in much the same way. Perhaps a reference to the Cloverfield monster.

janielou said...

Hey! I am a friend of Dan Benner and he pointed me in the direction of your fab life coaching website. I wisely used 3 hours of my work day today reading your blog. And I laughed my ass off. Can not wait to see what comes next. Also, I live in the A-town. If you scream at me when I walk in your store, I may just toss my Auntie Anne's pretzel bites at you.

Faile said...

Rock on! I feel like we may be similar in that it takes a special person to deal with our humor. And by your convo, I'd say he's got potential. ;)

Freak Power in '08 said...

but what about us? how are you going to write hilarious self-deprecating jokes about your lovelorn and sexless existence if you're *gasp* happy? :-P

jill said...

WOOOHOOOO!
I love new relationships. So fun.

jkkj said...

At least you speak the same "language."

theloosemoose said...

Bee said...

This is very cool and exciting....but until u dish some dirt can we have a consoling episode of LOLhouse? ;)

Thanks!

Tamara said...

Good God...and Godspeed.
Not to be Debbie Downer- you might need it. I certainly hope you don't, because I you're awesome and you deserve it!

:)

lacochran's evil twin said...

Awww... you're not gonna get all "You're a Shmoopy!" on us, are ya?

lindsay.at said...

Aw shucks! Does this mean less LOLHouse? Cos I really liked that.

Congrats. :)

ThisJane said...

I just started reading your blog and I almost peed my pants at work. Thank you.

OI said...

You're boring when you're happy.

Ron Merlin said...

I just saw your bit on Deadspin (I'm a diehard Red Sox fan) and then linked your site to my news aggregator and read a bit of your blog.....

That is some of the funniest, well spoken stuff I've seen online....

Amazing, I laugh so hard out loud at what your write, I cannot believe it.....

Good for you.

I have a modest food blog....

Phil said...

What does it say about me that I find this entire post incredibly romantic? That I was and always will be a child of the Ghostbusters era.

Beverly said...

Oh good Lord. If no one else is going to say it, then I will...

J-Money is gonna get laid! (Of course, by this stage, she may be GETTING laid!

Woo hoo!

kleph said...
