*Things I've Learned During the Last Month of 2007!

I've learned that even though I love all animals, I am most definitely a cat person.

I've learned that when your gloves have holes in them, it's time to get some new ones.

I've learned that it's perfectly ok to return a gift if it means you will get something you like better.

I've learned that it's possible to be irritable for no reason at all.

I've learned that I might as well work for Konica Minolta since reading the manual is better training than the technicians have.

I've learned that I do not have a bachelor's degree in computer science; therefore, I should not be reformatting our university's hard drive that consists of six years of legal files.

I've learned that I will do everything in my power to stay away from Queen's Plaza!

I've learned that when weathermen say it's going to rain in the winter, expect it to snow instead.

I've learned that there comes a time where you need to just get rid of clothing you haven't worn in years.

I've learned that there are some people you just can't forgive so easily.

I've learned that if my nose expects to make it through the winter, I'm going to have to invest in a humidifier.

I've learned that just because my cat meows at me doesn't mean he wants to sit on my lap.

I've learned that the workers at the Home Depot in Brooklyn are the biggest bunch of unhelpful people.

I've learned that the dress might be perfect for the occasion, but if the bra isn't comfortable underneath it, you need to wear a different dress.

I've learned that if you know a Jewish NYC couple getting married, you should do everything in your power to get invited to their wedding.

I've learned that it's the strangest thing when you don't know your parents address without having to look it up.

I've learned that the reason that homeless man isn't getting any money is because he's blowing snot rockets when all he has to do is go inside of the Wendy's he's sitting in front of to grab himself a damn napkin!

I've learned that I might not be pregnant at the same time as all my friends, but it only means that when I'm pregnant, everyone has already gone through it and I can ask for advice.

I've learned that if jeans are uncomfortable before walking out of the house, it doesn't mean they are going to get any more comfortable two hours later.

I've learned that not subscribing to PEOPLE magazine means I will read more books.

I've learned that straightening the hair may take 30 minutes, but I get to enjoy it for 3 days!

I've learned that even though NYC is the fashion capital of the world, sometimes shopping is just better when you travel out of the city.

I've learned that it's better to order too much food and take it home than not having enough and having to order more.

I've learned that I've had enough of listening to x-mas songs to last me a whole year!

I've learned that you shouldn't put too many books on an IKEA bookshelf.

I've learned that it's a good idea to disguise the fact that you put too many books on that bookshelf before your husband gets home and wonders what the hell you were thinking.

I've learned that everyone who lives in NYC wears black, and if you don't wear black, we know you are a tourist.

I've learned that sometimes you have to make a wise decision to leave the cats at home in fear that you might have to pull tinsel out of your cat's ass.

I've learned that Christmas is twice as much fun when all you care about is the fudge sitting up on the kitchen counter.

I've learned that the best gift is a dancing robot you can bring to work to put on your desk.

I've learned that you should never let three men chose the movie.

I've learned that when your husband is sick from a restaurant, it's a good idea to ask him exactly what restaurant he ate in so you don't eat at the same place two days later.

I've learned that having a car for a month isn't as bad as I thought it would be, and I will actually miss the freedom of being able to drive down the street for a piece of cake.

I've learned that even though you're sad that the month of fun is over, you are excited to get back into the swing of things.

I've learned that just because I live in New York City doesn't mean I'll spend New Years celebrating in Times Square and in fact, I am just as happy (if not MORE happy) watching the ball drop ON TELEVISION from the comfort and warmth of our Brooklyn apartment.
