"It's not true. Some have great stories, pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just no one in this car. But, a lot of people, that's their story. Good times, noodle salad. What makes it so hard is not that you had it bad, but that you're that pissed that so many others had it good." - Melvin Udall (from As Good As It Gets)
Hello blogging world! Today is day 1 of Good Times Noodle Salad. I have decided to start this blog mainly for myself and my husband so we can look back and see what we were doing at certain times in our life-- we are both currently 28 and freshly married. We live in MPLS which can be wonderful or extremely irritating. Wonderful when you are enjoying the many lakes and clean, quaint neighborhoods. Extremely irritating when you want to buy wine and you realize it's a Sunday so you can't. Plus, there's always the old "Minnesota Nice" syndrome which is the round about way that Minnesotans are able to insult each other while still smiling. It makes me a little crazy since I'm always second guessing what people really think of me and if they are being genuinely nice or if it's a back-handed compliment. All of this aside, I can promise you that I will NEVER use this blog to talk about the miserable weather in Minnesota… that's seriously all anyone ever talks about at work (well, at least during the winter). Welcome to my site!
