accidental existence

Life, one sentence at a time

“…I can’t believe a month is all it’s been…” May 18, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — emletterman @ 4:21 pm

The last time I wrote in this space I was Emily Hoffman.
So much has changed.

The wedding was perfect.
Everything I ever wanted it to be and more.
My friends and family were so supportive and made the day special.
Shout to to Crystal and Kyle for being our peeps.

Washington D.C. was filled with wonder.
And standing in line.
And expensive food.
We need another week.

Blog readers will be the first to know—the Hoffman/Letterman wedding will be featured in the July issue of 417 magazine.
Without our knowledge, our super wonderful photographer Sesha sent them some photos for consideration.
They loved them.
Phone calls were made.
We are in.
While my byline appears in the paper each week, I must confess, I am a bit excited to see it.

Speaking of weddings, Little Kyle Wilson and Stormy are engaged.
Congrats my friends.
Maybe your wedding will end up in (Insert Creston zip code here) magazine.
It could happen.

Work is as busy as ever.
Grad tab last week.
Layout this week.
As of Tuesday afternoon I had already worked 30 hours for the week.
That is a lot.
Even for a reporter.

Made chicken fried steak for dinner last night.

I think Shake and Bake pork chops tonight.
The kids love them.
By kids, I mean—Adam, Danny and Chuck.

Being married is great.

I’ve started watching “Pregnant in Heels.”
I find it hi-larry-us.
Adam thinks its gonna give me bad ideas.
What ideas?
About how I like being independent?
About how we are not ready to saddle outselves with a child when have only been married a month?
About how we are too poor to even look at other people’s babies?
I think he thinks I have baby fever.
I think I just like to laugh.

BTW lots of people I know have baby fever.
And I am super happy for them.
For me, right now, I’m cool as a cucumber.


Completely unrelated sidenote: No, I can not cover for a minute—ALL THE TIME.

It’s raining.

Adam wants to go to the lake this weekend.
His fam  are renting cabins.
He wants to swim.
I think its 60 degrees and raining.
I do love grilled hotdogs though….

I did a Facebook poll on C25K.
People love it.
I mean love, love it.
I think I’m gonna try it.
Turns out, there is an app for that.

I just accidently ruined a project a coworker spent a lot of time on.
Not ruined in a broke sort of way.
Ruined in a pointed out a mistake sort of way.
They were not happy.
I maintain better now than later.


I had some ramen for lunch.
I’m starving.
Ramen is good when you’re eating it, but its like salad.
SUPER full one minute, famished the next.
Danny did not care for ramen either.

Wedding gifts are great.
I just wanted to throw that out there.

I missed two episode of 90210 because the DVR fucked up.
It just stopped recording them.
A coworker noticed her doing the same and alerted me to the madness.
I tuned in this week.
I have no idea what is going on.
Liam is still hot.
Teddy is still gay.
That is extent of my knowledge.

If I didn’t want to cover a minute ago, what makes you think I want to again, now?
(I smiled, nodded and said OK)

I think the office smells like burnt cheese today.
Like when you get it stuck on the electric grate.
No, I did not just do that last week.
(I totally did.)

Have you seen the slo-mo Jell-O video?
It amazes me.
I find Jell-O weird.

I think it’s time for a pug picture.

I'm going to teach Danny how to do this. To the park!

      You might?

      Do you get week in the knees at the site of a baby onesie?
      Does the thought of 3 a.m. feeding make you all a twitter?
      Are you more excited then words can describe for poo diapers?

      If you answered no to any of these questions, then yes, you do indeed have baby fever.

    “too poor to even look at other people’s babies” I lol’ed

    An awesome blog post if I ever saw one.

    Also, I’m gonna run to the bank/pick up my kid/sit in the bathroom for 3 hours. Could you cover for a minute?

    You should say no once, just to see what happens.
