I’m running out the door to go to sushi with L. We found this great spot near our house where every plate is $2.75! They have good stuff, too; more than the average spicy tuna and California roll boring shit. You can even get a little bowl of tempura/chicken/curry udon for…you guessed it…$2.75. If you are ever in West LA and craving sushi, I’ll hook you up.

Anyway, I don’t have anything serious to talk about today. I think my last post about the possibility of a life without children was heavy enough, huh? Thank you for your amazing comments, and to those that emailed me your thoughts. I was so touched by all of your words. L and I are wading through such an unstable time right now. If I’ve learned anything thus far, it’s that it is really important to build stability and confidence in your relationship. It helps when times get rough.

On a completely unrelated note, I started reading The Hunger Games.

I’m only about thirty pages in, but I’m already really liking it. I’m not usually a science fiction type, so it feels kinda good to step outside my reading comfort zone. I just feel like chick lit isn’t really doing it for me right now.

Anyone have fun plans for the weekend? We saw Bridesmaids the other day (finally!). The plot wasn’t what we expected, but there were definitely some funny parts. Melissa McCarthy (a.k.a. Sookie) made the movie for me. If you have a chance, check it out.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Enjoy yourselves.

    Um, I NEED TO KNOW this place!! I love tempura. I could eat it every day of my life. Ya know, I loved Bridesmaids, but perhaps it's because I haven't laughed in a movie in YEARS. Like, literally years. 🙂 Melissa McCarthy was HILARIOUS. Hm, I think I should start reading That Hunger Games book, everyone is talking about it. 🙂

    Hunger Games is one of my favorite books. Promise it only gets better! Please share this new sushi spot. I would love to check it out. Have a great weekend!

    @Amber and @Rizza: It's called Sushi Stop on Sawtelle Blvd. http://sushistopusa.com/
    I already told Amber this, but they get super crowded around 7pm daily, and it is cash only. I really love the crispy rice spicy tuna dish. Yum!

    P.S. It's Carly, but stupid blogger won't let me sign in.

    3rd attempt posting … it said the last 2 didn't work … so if you get 3 suspiciously similar posts, that's why.

    First, I commented on how your thoughts rung so true. And I added that I don't comment as much now, but I still read.

    I then mentioned that I am posting for a slightly selfish reason. My friend is trying to win some money towards her wedding dress. The contest closes in 10 days, and she's nowhere near winning. Would you consider posting it on your blog?

    If so, email me or go to either of my blogs tomorrow (they're scheduled to post at 6:00 am EST at whollykrista.blogspot.com and kristaandwadeswedding.blogspot.com ). I have all the details going up on my blogs at that time with voting information. You can just copy it, or I can email you the details (email krista (dot) thompson (at) gmail (dot) com or on facebook. (We'd been friends on facebook, but I don't see you now, but my security settings are higher, so I don't know. I'm listed as Krista Hanna Thompson)

    (posting anonymously b/c I can't log onto google right now)

    I went to a wedding this past weekend in Yosemite. My friend, the groom, is like my brother. I was trying to think of any advise to give them.
    The only thing I could think of was this:
    No matter the circumstances, good or bad, stessful or joyous, painful or happy, take each others' hand and know the most important person in your life is standing right next to you.
