Pregnancy is ruining my brain

I can’t remember a single thing on my shopping list unless I am staring straight at it, I walked down the shampoo aisle at the store today and didn’t even glance at the conditioner I was out of, and I couldn’t find the book I was reading for hours – despite sitting almost directly ON IT.

But for some insane reason, my baby MAKES ME PSYCHIC. I swear I am not making this up. I have correctly predicted the ending to every show on TV this week. Tonight I woke E up just to tell him the ending of The Mentalist (good show for real, and Simon Baker ain’t bad to look at) twenty minutes before they actually revealed it. AND I WAS RIGHT. Then Jason was accused of rape on SVU and I was all “Whatevs, it was that other guy!” and I was right AGAIN. I don’t even look at my caller ID anymore, because I know who’s calling. When the doorbell rang today I answered it in my bathrobe because I knew it was just the UPS guy dropping of packages. Tomorrow I am going to buy some lottery tickets. Maybe I’ll talk E into some blackjack on Friday (like that’ll be hard) and win enough to cover that stroller I am lusting after.* Right now my baby and I are just a pretty good party trick. If we ever got invited to parties. Mmmm…party food. Mini quiches and chicken-on-a-stick sound awesome right now. I predict both things will be in my future.

*I never thought I’d describe a stroller like that, but I really can’t think of a better word than lust. It’s even stronger than my desire for cheese curls and Chick-fil-A.

    That is so interesting!! Does this just happen around your home environment or does it carry through into the broader community/environment?

    Well, I hope your baby doesn’t tell you what I got you for Christmas.

    I feel you on the forgetful thing. You should see my desk at work – I have about 5 lists, a ‘master’ list on long ass legal paper and about 20 post it’s all reminding me to look at the lists of things I have to do or cannot forget. It’s really hard being an executive assistant and supposed to be keeping someone organized when I can barely remember the password to sign into my computer!!! I stopped for groceries last night and forgot my list! So I had to call the hubs and make a new list while I was in the store. It’s really Insane!

    regarding the psychic thing: Do you have Mega Millions in CT? because the jackpot just rolled over to $146 million. I only got one number and the mega ball last time (which is still $2!). Feel free to send me numbers if you can’t play in your state :) !

    GreenEyeDevil – It happened again while I was in the car today, with a radio contest I suddenly knew the answer to, but I didn’t have the motivation to call in or go to the location and win anything. But I was totally right. So I guess it happens outside my house too.

    Stacy – Here: it’s on sale in the store plus I have a 15% off coupon. I plan to buy it this weekend.

    Other Erin – Sure. Your Economics final will be about…economics.

    H_a_l – Try playing things with my due date in them: 04-01-2009. I know that’s not enough for Mega Millions but it could be a Pick Four.

    Erin – Oh whatever, you have no reason not to watch SVU when it’s on. It’s not like you get up for work in the morning! ;)
