Youtube Tuesday #2

This week’s video is one that my friend posted on Facebook.

It’s called “Friends Ignoring Your Advice” and can I just say, this really hits home.

My friends never take my advice.

Mimi especially.

Here’s a sample conversation.

M: “Should I talk to him?”

E: “Well, seeing as he’s a jerk, no, don’t talk to him.”

M: “Oh, well, I just messaged him. So…”


Until next time, Em 🙂


Now all my teachers think I’m crazy…

Today at lunch I was joking around with Mimi about our so-called “husbands”. We have this thing where, when we see a really old/ugly guy featured in one of our teachers PowerPoints, we say that he is the other person’s husband.

Moshe Dayan, the Israeli Defense Minister, is Mimi’s “husband”

Jimmy Carter, the US President in the 1970s, is my “husband”

Well, some crazy stuff went down during lunch today. We were joking around, looking up the creepiest pictures we could find of Moshe Dayan and Jimmy Carter. I typed in “Jimmy Carter” on her laptop, and you know how when you look up a CUTE actor on google, sometimes you type in “actor shirtless”? Well I sort of got in the habit of doing that… so I accidentally typed in “Jimmy Carter s” and then I was like “Oh my gosh, no! I did not mean to look up Jimmy Carter shirtless! Oh my gosh!”

Let’s just say that Mimi OVERREACTED. A lot. We continued looking up random pictures of Jimmy Carter, and then suddenly we heard a “what are you looking up?’… we both turned around and saw one of our teachers standing there. Staring at our screen. Which now featured the words “Jimmy Carter young”… great.

Oh, but it gets better. Mimi started talking to him, saying how Carter was my “husband”… wonderful. He definitely thinks I’m psycho, especially because I then told Mimi that “at least my ‘husband’ didn’t die in 1981, before I was born”… ack. Then Mimi told him that I was “looking up pictures of Jimmy Carter shirtless”… great.Our teacher then backed away slowly, saying that he would “never come back here again” (referring to the place where we were eating/stalking people).

Also, on Halloween, I dressed up as my (other) teacher’s alter ego, Franco Toolbox.

Then, my friend told him that I was dressed up as Franco Toolbox… at least my teacher took it well, saying that it was funny, and good thing I didn’t bring guns to school! But he definitely thinks I’m crazy, even though he seemed fine about it.


I see a definite resemblance. (please ignore the stupid face I was making, I was trying to replicate the video)

Until next time, Em 🙂

Cuteness and graduation

That awkward moment when you see more cute guys at your brother’s junior high graduation than you normally see in a week… and then proceed to stalk them.

Also, Mimi told Damian that he looked cute in his profile picture… finally something is happening in that relationship. I swear, they’re gonna be 60 before they go out. And they like each other.

Also, I’m going bike shopping this weekend!!! I just love used bike stores… you can get nice road bikes for $200 🙂

Until next time, Em 🙂

My friends are so clueless sometimes…

Okay, so I was talking to Mimi today about Damian. And she mentioned how her tutor told her that Damian likes her. This was one week ago. And yet Mimi is in denial that Damian likes her. Seriously.

And okay, this is totally Mimi and Damian. No joke. They have been friends forever.

Let’s see how long it takes for them to go out.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Romeo and Juliet, and dating rules

So there’s this guy that Mimi likes, Damian. She’s liked him for 2 years (at least) and he liked her back last year (I don’t know if he still does, but he talks to her every day so…)

So I’m wondering, what are your guys’ opinions on what she should say to him? She doesn’t want to ask him out – she wants him to be the asker. She does want him to ask her out though (this morning she said “he’s not my boyfriend… yet… oh my gosh that just slipped out…. oh my gosh”)

Also, he was complaining to her about his Romeo and Juliet project yesterday. But Mimi did not take my advice and offer to help him (read: be the Juliet to his Romeo ;))


2. Play the field! Get out there and find out what type of guy you like.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Putting our stalker skills to the test

Today at service, Mimi, Megan, Christy and I saw this super-cute guy walk in. And of course he helped sort things with Megan’s mom. And they chatted it up. Apparently he was looking at us the whole time we were volunteering! Right before we left, we went to help Megan’s mom and we started chatting with the cute guy, I’ll call him Ben. He asked what school we went to and Megan’s mom answered and told him what grade we were in…. apparently he’s a freshman in college and HE WAS INTERESTED IN US! And it just got better. Christy was telling us about her birthday which is coming up, and Ben exclaimed “Oh when’s your birthday? June 29th? Darn, mine’s June 22nd!” So now we know his name, what grade he’s in, what college he goes to, his birthday, and one of the classes he’s in (he has to do service to fulfill a requirement). Now all Mimi and I have to do is look him up on Facebook and voila! Oh and after service, when we were talking about Ben, Megan’s mom exclaimed “if I had known you liked him I would have found out much more about him for you guys!” Oh my gosh, I love my service group.

Until next time, Em 🙂
