Cinco de Mayo is usually a day for celebrating….

But it wasn’t for me. I went over to Anna’s house at 11 a.m. and watched her play tennis for 4 hours. Not fun. Then I expected to see Swimmer at her BBQ, but he DIDN’T SHOW UP. Apparently he went to someone else’s party. Sad. I’m actually sort of happy that Swimmer didn’t come because Anna and A were a bit… tipsy. Let’s just say that Anna told a 14-year old that she was going to marry him. So I guess it’s sort of good that Swimmer didn’t come. Sort of.

Until next time, Em 🙂

EDIT: Oh and I totally saw a girl who looks just like Rue from The Hunger Games. A and Anna were shrieking and she probably got freaked out.

Guess who I saw today?!?!

Today I went to Anna’s house and played tennis with her. When we went to go buy tortillas, his family was playing croquet on their lawn (how cute!!!), and I totally saw Swimmer. He looked ravishing, as always, in his bright (read: neon) red shorts, black and red plaid shirt (he gets like 1 million points for that in my mind) and….. a hat WITH EARFLAPS (a gazillian points for that!!!)….. HE WAS SOOO ADORABLE! And of course I didn’t talk to him. I mean, I totally would have, except that he was like standing in the street staring at me and A who were scootering/bicycling around, and it would have been totally creepy to be like “Hey Swimmer! What’s happening?!” I was not going to take my chances.

Until next time, Em 🙂

I have good news and bad news

Good news: there is going to be a BBQ in Anna’s neighborhood in two weeks. And Swimmer will probably be there.
Bad news: I was originally going to play tennis with Anna today, and I was thinking of a way to get Swimmer to come. I asked Anna if she knew anybody who played tennis. She said she only knew two people: A and JB. Of course she knows Swimmer plays tennis! So why did she not mention him? I asked her if she knew any other people who play, because “you guys are really good and I suck” and she said “it’s fine I already invited them”… WHY?! I guess the only way she will want to play with him is if we play at her house and he comes to play with us. Sigh.
Until next time, Em 🙂

Horoscope for the day -_-

Use your creativity to find a way to get in on the fun times. They need you!

Your intellect is linking you ever more closely with your people — and maybe with one new person in particular! It’s a great time to chat up new folks and see where your connections lead.

What does this mean?! Who am I supposed to talk to? A (from the telephone game), who I’m playing tennis with today? Swimmer?

Oh, and while we’re on the subject of Swimmer, I have a perfect plan for getting his number. All I need to do is hang out with him (I need advice on how to ask Anna if we can hang out with him!) and then I can say “That was fun! We should hang out sometime! What’s your number?” and then we’re golden.


Explains my situation

Until next time, Em 🙂

Awkward games of Telephone

So my friend finally came online, and here’s our conversation:

ChaiTeaLover: After you and SpongeBob left, we played Telephone. And you know the point of Telephone is to make things like he**a awkward, right? So the person who started said “Em and SpongeBob are best friends”

Em: YES (hyperventilating)

CTL: And it went around until it got to JB (my friend’s twin brother)

Em: Type fast… what (hyperventilating; this can’t be good)

CTL: And then JB decided to change the words to “Em and SpongeBob are poops” and for some reason it got back to A, who was last, and she heard

Em: Yesss!!!

CTL: “SpongeBob thinks Em has big b**bs” HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

Em: UH


Em: Anyways


Em: I’m… sure it was


Em: So what else happened! Nothing?? (still hyperventilating; what if they kissed?)

CTL: I just thought that would interest you. And everyone was like dying on the floor.

Em: It… didn’t.


Em: I’m sure they were.

CTL: And we were like “suuurreee ;)”

Em: Anyways. What did y’all do after that?

CTL: We just fooled around.

Em: Uh…

CTL: Did nothing hahahaha

Em: Mhmmmmm…

CTL: You didn’t really miss much! We just talked. And they wanted to play Spin the Bottle (OMG I BET THEY KISSED!!)

Em: Did you! Haha (sob)

CTL: No. There were two guys and five girls. How would that have even worked? (phew)

So now that all has been said and done, I know that while there was a bit of… awkward conversation, but at least CTL didn’t kiss Swimmer. Thank goodness!

Until next time, Em 🙂
