For all you kids of the 90's....

This video showed up on my YouTube today. It was in my "Suggested for Me" that's embarrassing, not that anyone should be surprised.  But it's the greatest video ever made. 

For all you kids of the millenium, I feel sorry for you. If you think High School Musical is the best. movie. ever. and Zac Efron is soooo hot, or you thought Shia Lebeouf was a "breakout star" in Transformers...then you clearly need to watch "Luck of the Irish."

 Back in my heyday:
-Ryan Merriman was the cutest boy on television and you wanted to be his lucky coin instead of his little Indian or Mexican friend (what ever she was). Who does she think she is??
-Erik von Detten took it to the BRINK! (Where are you now, Erik?)
-You would have given anything for a Smart House named Pat.
-Why yes, girls could chop off their hair and motocross with the boys.
-You constantly wondered "Why is Johnny Tsunami's dad Japanese?"
-You wanted to name your first child Zenon or, better yet, Protozoa.
-Halloweentown was REAL.
- Invisible friends who turned into boogiemen scared the shit out of you. 
-You had "We went to the moon in 1969..." in your head FOR.EVER. And you still do. 
-Susie Q was the prettiest person ever. Plus, she was the pink Power Ranger.  Legendary. 
-You KNEW what "Si se puede!!!" meant...
-Andy was a sad excuse for a Lawrence brother. 
-Katherine Heigl will always be Alexa Wheaton. 
-...and Miley was off sucking her pacifier somewhere in Tennessee wearing nothing but pull-ups. Just like she still does.

Don't forget these were the days. Zetus Lupetus!

First Blog. First Snow.

This is my first blog entry! Yeaay!
I hope this doesn't end up like the countless journals and diaries I've made poor attempts to write throughout my life. But that's mostly because I wanted that electronic diary I saw on commercials where you create your own password so that your little brother couldn't read it? Except for I didn't have a little brother... or anything remotely interesting to talk about when I was 8. I sincerely hope I'm more interesting now...

I don't particularly feel like starting this off with a whole introduction that makes me feel like I'm in a getting-to-know-you game on the 1st day of class. It's unnecessary and silly. Like group work (KILL. ME.). 
So, here goes...

It snowed today. 

But by "snow" I mean the famous Powdered Sugar Fairy flew down from her castle in the the mythical village of Sugarland (it's by Houston.) and, as the college students slept snug in their beds, the fairy sprinkled powdered sugar and shredded cotton balls all over the ground...making sure she sprinkled ONLY enough to allow every single person to update their statuses with "Snowwww! heartsheartssmileyfacewink," upload a photo, pray for cancelled class, and then be severely let down by 10 a.m.  

Of course,  I left my apartment at 7:30 completely dressed and prepared for wintery conditions. Now, I never take the bus. It's silly living so close to campus and taking a bus that will get you to class SLOWER than walking. Also, I don't trust myself to ever go to the gym so...I've gotta. Of course, I always end up leaving my door 5 minutes too late so I have to hoof it to the foreign language building by 8:00.
There is nothing more than freezing your butt off as you book it all the way to campus with all your layers on,  then getting into class and alllll of a sudden, your sweat catches up with you. So now you're that kid sitting in your chair that's not only panting but weirdly perspiring...

Sadly, up till now, that's all I've done. Blame the Powdered Sugar Fairy...or the Law & Order:SVU marathon on USA, but I haven't exactly left my couch all damn day. There's just something about vicious rape and murder that makes you want to watch 10 episodes in a row...although, it may also be because Dr. Huang is the voice of Shang in "Mulan." But probably because of Stabler's forearms. Yep, that's it. 


First post ever!! I think I'd like comments... :)
