Reflections? Trust Me, I Have Some

December has always been a time of reflection for me. I like to look over the year and see how far I've (hopefully!) come.

But right now, I'm grading. I've been doing it for like four hours straight, and have at least that much more to do today (and I STILL won't be done!). So today's December reflection will default to a familiar theme: I am too pretty for this!

Christina's List of Things That She is Far Too Pretty For
  1. I am too pretty to spend to be grading exams that include answers made up of random words strung together -- they are not even sentence fragments!
  2. I am too pretty for my efforts at surprising my best friend with a redecorated office to go unappreciated (I moved her desk into the middle of her office when she stepped out for 35 seconds... it was amazing, but amazingly enough she was not impressed. How rude!).
  3. I am too pretty to pack my apartment... aren't there fairies who are supposed to take care of that?
  4. I am too pretty to break my friend's phone. Oh no wait, I'm not. Sorry.
  5. I am too pretty to keep forgetting to eat. Because seriously, skeleton Christina is not pretty and it would be a shame to morph into her just because life is busy and stressful right now.
Okay, that got some of the whine out of my soul. But I reserve the right to add to the list later.

What about you? What are you dealing with today that you are FAR TOO PRETTY for?

If catharsis doesn't work, refer back to the Too Pretty Strategies for Losing the Funk (still giggling over that!).

Yeah, I am still giggling over that one, too. You need some kind of award for it. I'm not savvy enough to make one for you though. :(

Wait. That's it. I am too pretty to not be savvy enough to make you a blog award.

I'm too pretty to be sitting under fluorescent lights for 8 hours when I could be out LIVING. :)

I'm too pretty to sit here and listen to my secretary's child whine and cry next door (she's 9!).

I am FAR too pretty for this take-home exam.

Sure, if I finish it, it means I am officially done with the semester and that I don't have to do a SINGLE THING for the next two weeks or so.

But still.

I don't wanna.

And yes, you are far to pretty to pack. That junk is beneath you.

I am too pretty to do the million loads of laundry I have waiting for me!

I'm far too pretty to have a fractured foot that is stopping me playing basketball.

I'm too pretty to ride public transportation where men rub up against you and they think its okay

I'm too pretty to be worrying about finishing all my shopping before Christmas.

I like this concept. I will have to read more of this. said...

Lol @ #3. My goodness I hate packing. Unpacking though... I happen to love. :) Weird.
