Another night, Another show

I went to see "The Annuals" and "Minus the Bear" the other day. I had a big long post expressing my exact emotions which was everything from the euphoria of the music to the anger towards the moshers, but I figure no one really cares about reading my blog vomit, so I'll leave you with, "I had a good time."

Do I Make You Feel Pretty?


I was listening to a mystery song today, it's kind of catchy and this line jumped out at me...

"Is there a reason that you like me, 
do I make you feel pretty?"

That is it! Boys, if you want a girl to like you... all you have to do is make her feel pretty, and she will fall in love with you, if even just for that moment. (Now just saying it doesn't count... she's gotta FEEL it)


pret⋅ty

   [prit-ee] Show IPA Pronunciation   adjective, -ti⋅er, ti⋅est, noun, plural -ties, adverb, verb, -tied,-ty⋅ing.
–adjective  1.pleasing or attractive to the eye, as by delicacy or gracefulness

I DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE, NO GIRL CAN RESIST A MAN THAT MAKES HER FEEL THAT WAY.

Now I just need to find the trick to men...

Who would have thought?





That hillbillies like these could be so poetic




Band of Horses "Part One"

to the bottom dear, i had to fall, but you really caught me, you really caught me, dear, at the bottom where i fall. 

and slowly dear, ask would you dance with me, here's the shades down; lights off 

i didn't know you 
you're everything i do done badly 
now i'll love you always 
even when i say, "distract me." 

and sit out tonight in some strange place, if we have no friends here, well i had a few to begin with 

to wake next to you in the morning, and good morning to you. how do you do? hey, good morning to you! more covers for you. sleep soundly dear cause i have to go. 

and i'll love you always. 
when we leave this place 
and drive back to carolina 
and down to savannah and stay

Guilty Pleasures...

Here is a list of a few of the things I secretly love, but hate to admit it... by order of feelings of guilt...
 

10. Seeing a stranger trip and fall, and being so happy I was in the right place at the right time
9. Not stopping for pedestrians or walking slowly across the crosswalk depending on how lazy I am that day
8. Eating out for every meal of the day
7. Facebook... (I will break down my actual facebook use another day. It'll be interesting, I promise.)
6. Suppressing a laugh in the library... usually because I am doing something in the library that I shouldn't be, like something from the news feed on facebook, watching a TV show or reading someone's blog because the internet is so stinkin fast!
5. Brownies... from 7-11
4. The Disney channel... I always catch myself pausing on it when Im channel surfing, then I realize I've already seen that episode of Hannah Montana "with one of my 8 nieces" and I quickly change the channel before my roommates catch me. 
3. *Nsync
2. Keeping track of what I wear. Want proof? On May 22, I wore a sweater vest and a striped button up underneath. (I'll explain why I do this on a later blog as well... oh the things to look forward to)

and the number one?...

1. Twilight

Braces ARE cool!

Remember in Elementary school when whatever the popular kids did or have was SO cool and became an insta-trend? For example; toe socks. The completely unconventional sock which separated and exposed each toe to not only prevent the natural insulation that a normal sock creates, but they showed off the ugliness of one's foot. Why it was a fad? I'll never know... but I had a rainbow striped pair, and one with fake painted toe nails on it, don't even ask... 

Let's get back on track... the reason we are here today, is to discuss braces. Most people had braces at some time in their life. Strangely enough, at one point it was actually COOL to have braces. Too early is weird and only for nerds, where as too late is unfortunate because when it came kissing time, everyone was afraid to get stuck (we've heard stories of that happening, but did anyone actually KNOW someone who's wires actually got tangled together? Didn't think so) If you didn't have braces, you either are extremely blessed, or more likely, you probably need them, but are too embarrassed to get them because you are passed the cool point. 

For example: 
This is the same girl. The before and after of braces... IN COLLEGE. You can compare and contrast these two photos for yourself...




Here is a breakdown of  coolness of which, depending on when you were lucky enough to ditch school every other month for an ortho appointment. 

(The Y axis represents the level of coolness where as the X axis represents the actual age)

Note: Headgear is NEVER cool. However rubber bands are, but mostly because they double has a hair accessory.

The Deception of the FUN Size


Why is it that around Halloween time, we get all crazy with candy? If someone put a huge bowl of fun size candy in front of you, it will probably be disposed of within the hour. However, if it were a bowl of KING sized candy bars that had been placed there, you maybe would crack into one, and probably would not even finish it. Keep dreaming when it comes to eating more than one. 

So why do our brains think it's okay to eat a hundred "Fun" sized (which is not a very fun size might I add... it's more of an appetizer for the other 99 you are going to eat shortly after) But you feel like it will crash your diet to eat even one king? I think perhaps I think about treats a little too much.

Side note: What happened to the old King sized Reeses? The price hasn't changed, but they took out one of the cups. Where is the 4th cup Im paying for?! 



... I think I'll go running now
