I Think I Can, I Think I Can't...

I am in middle of writer's block. That combined with the fact that nothing has made me laugh hysterically, cry hysterically, or fly into a blinding rage lately, so I'm going to plagiarize. Well, not really, since I'm quoting the source (or one of many), so technically, it's not plagiarism if you're calling yourself out on it. I just can't think of anything wildly brilliant and original to write about right now. So here's my version of these posts done by Kim at Perfectly Cursed Life and LiLu at Live It, Love It:

I can…

…try to be a positive role model to my daughter and let her know that being smart is important (more than being beautiful – although, if I do say so myself, she’s gorgeous!) and that eating a healthy diet is more important that whatever the scale says.
…make some mean imitation White Castle burgers. They taste EXACTLY the same!
…enjoy toilet humor immensely. Actually, I prefer it over all other forms of jokes!

I can’t…

…burp the alphabet. Although I really haven’t tried.
…protect my child from all of the evil in the world, but dammit, I’m gonna try.
…dance worth a shit. I was born with no grace and am very clumsy.

I will…

… eventually find a career that makes me happy to go to work. I’m still searching for it.
…learn a foreign language someday. Those Rosetta Stone commercials are calling my name!
…see London and Paris someday.

I won’t…

…eat seafood. The thought of it makes me want to vomit.
…cancel HBO even when “True Blood” is in its off-season.
…stop asking “Why?”

I should…

…be more open-minded and spontaneous sometimes and not be such a rigid control freak. (In my defense, when I can’t plan things out to the letter, I tend to get severely uncomfortable.)
…learn to be more forgiving when I feel like someone has committed a major wrong to me.
…try to exercise more and eat healthier.

I shouldn’t…

…take things for granted as much as I do. I was reminded of this thanks to Nickleback’s “If Today Was Your Last Day” this weekend. (Lame, I know.)
…beat myself up over my personal failures.
…be working on this blog post at work, but it seems that is the only place where I have time to write. Irony! (So, technically, I AM getting paid to blog!) Shhhhh!
