is "gregg" me or some random guy with two "g"s in his first name? cause i would rather do anything than pack right now....

also, to answer your question from ages ago, i'm moving to seattle (on friday) to study marine affairs (coastal resource management, fisheries, etc) for a master's. at the moment, i'm having problems remembering why as i'm surrounded by cardboard boxes. i realized yesterday that i managed to pack my anti-anxiety medicine in one of these 7 boxes. this is hilarious to me.

That's you, baby. I can't use that other "R" name. Bad associations. I have some anxiety pills around here somewhere ... but I think they expired three years ago. Just take two Pez. But swallow them.

Beta said...

ACk! I've never been tagged. How do I do it? In my blog (which I'll hereto refer as LJ)?

Cupcake said...

Yep, I'm trying to reach out to my LJ friends which is very big of me because Live Journal is weird and stupid and I hate it (ie it makes me feel excluded). Beta, you complete the tag on your blog, then you can post a link here so people can find your freakin' LJ to see what you had to say. Unless you don't want to whole cupcake army tromping over to your LJ.

Am I supposed to call you Betsy? That's just weird. Although you're pretty enough to be a Betsy. Can you imagine an ugly Betsy?

Beta said...

Oh sorry, I'm just used to Betsy as a nickname. And there was this funny story of me in Germany telling people that in my German class I was called Beta. They had never heard of the name and wondered why my teacher would use it. Some of them took to calling me Betsy after the commercial for that doll "Betsy Baby". In German it was "Betsy Baby crabbelt herum genau so wie ein baby". So that doesn't really explain why they called me Betsy, but it stuck cuz they knew i hated it (I thought it sounded like a farmer's name.) I'll work on the LJ thing. You should be able to comment even though you're not a member. I'll look into that.

Cupcake said...

Gregg scored.

Tiffany said...

Here you go!

And I'll look up the recipe for the cake and post it tomorrow.
