In which I become a contender

Most days I wouldn't even be considered for the Best Girlfriend in the World award, should such a thing exist. I'm moody, fiercely independent, high-maintenance, and never around. I hog the remote and the covers, I'm always cold, and I refuse to watch scary movies. I cry at the drop of a hat, I have to be right all the time, and I'm a stickler for good grammar (you'll notice I've picked sides in the Oxford comma debate). Most days, I'm a pain in the neck, I know I am.

But yesterday was not most days. Yesterday, I climbed the ranks in the Best Girlfriend in the World contest. Why, you ask? Because yesterday, in honor of CM's impending birthday, I surprised him with a behind-the-scenes tour of our favorite animals at the zoo: the sifakas. Turns out, not only are they incredibly adorable (look at those eyes!), but they are also sweet-natured, just as soft as they look, and very social. We got to hand-feed and pet them, and the baby sifaka even licked our fingers!

And then, when we got home, I gave him the rest of his present: an entire series he loves on DVD (I won't tell you the name of it because CM doesn't want people to question his sexual orientation). And after that I put on a slinky black number and let him take me out to dinner.

I think I'm just a little closer to that trophy now.


  1. That is TOOO cool for words. You ARE a very very very good girlfriend.

    Nice work!

  2. That first paragraph describes me to a "T". Maybe there is hope for me after all.

  3. Being in favor of the Oxford comma definitely keeps you in the running.

  5. Hello Louisa, I was thinking about Houston a year on, and about you and that it's your birthday around now. I guess I missed it but I'd like to send you a greeting anyhow. I just received a little fee for a broadcast of B&B. I hope you got one too! Perhaps I can find it to listen to on the interweb - I'd like to hear the lovely music, the flirty play andthe donkey. I'm going to have a scout round your blog to see what you've been up to. Happy, better late than never, Birthday Louisa! XX Robin T
