Not Me Monday

I am not sure where Not Me Monday originated or who to link to. So I'm just going on my own. In light of the exhausting week I had last week, which I shared a bit about here, I decided to let you in on a few things I did not do/say/think/feel:

I did not have a major epiphany when I came to the realization that this so-called "EVOO" that every blogger and her mother seems to use in recipes was not some kind of "speciality cooking spray or oil that they must only sell in the States" but is in reality, simply an acronym for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Nope, not me.

I did not experience a serious case of PMS and as a result, I was not extremely mean and grouchy to my husband for no reason. And when he asked me, "Just because you're tired, how come that means you can be grouchy to me?" I did not swiftly respond with, "Because you are my husband and that's what you're here for". Not, not me.

I did not and I mean I really certainly absolutely did not try a new recipe in the bread maker and end up with a loaf that looked like this.....

Nope. Not me.

I did not attempt to claim that I "meant for that loaf to turn out that way because I wanted to try making a bread bowl". Nope. Not me.

And I certainly did not still use the "bread bowl". Nope. Not me.

I did not complain about being SO tired that I could barely move let alone do any cleaning around the house one day and then proceed to lay awake for hours once I went to bed thinking about school work. Of course not. Not me.

Speaking of school work, I certainly did not arrange a meeting with one of my professors to explicitly ask him not to question me about a particular issue in my proposal defense because if he did I would not have a clue what to say and I would not want to be embarrassed in front of my classmates. Nope. Not me.

Another speaking of school work, I did not nearly stop breathing one approximately 5 occasions each day when thinking about the amount of work to be done in the next 5 weeks. Nope. Not me.

In a specific social setting, I did not look and the fabulous dude and hiss, "Why don't we have a kid? We should have kid. Life would be so much easier if we had a kid because this would be less awkward". Nope. Not me.

I did not blame the fabulous dude for stealing my spare change and leaving me with nothing when I wanted to buy a snack at school when I knew perfectly well that I spent my own spare change on cream soda. Nope. Not me.
