BFF Applications Available Upon Request

Now that I'm done being a pansy about NaBloPoMo, I can move on to the real entry for the night.

It turns out that I wrote almost identical entries on the 4th of November in 2003 and 2006. Both focused on whining about the weather and procrastinating on an essay. (Booorring.) Hopefully, it wasn't the same essay. I almost got killed in 2003 because some stupid guy crossed a busy intersection with a toolbox and dropped all his tools in the road, stopping to pick them up. That caused a sweet traffic jam that left me and my car in a prime spot to get obliterated. Thankfully, God had other plans in mind.

I'm assuming, however, that those plans did not include what happened on November 4, 2006, when I mustered up a handful of maturity and got revenge on my friends who had ditched me three nights in a row.

[I] went out to Wingstop at eleven [with some of the other guys], leaving the parking lot just as Boy and Pimp and Pants got back on campus. [Pants] called me up, asking, "Where are you? What's that noise in the background? Who are you with?"

I quite simply responded, "Y'all ditched me for the third time tonight, so it's my turn to ditch you. I'm on my way to a secret location with a bunch of cool people. Bye!"

Clever, I know. Ironically, I just helped a friend navigate to a Wingstop location out in California (via my new Rachelmaps service), and I'm pretty sure he was one of the people who was around to hear that awesome "Revenge is mine!" speech.

In fact, he could probably attest to the fact that this is really close to the face I was making all night long.

Sweet, right? If you need any more proof of why you should be my BFF, check out Tyler's list of things I've made him do in the few months we've known each other. I'll be sitting right here being impressed with myself if you need me. Feel free to interrupt if you get the sudden urge to French braid my hair or make friendship bracelets together or have a slumber party.

I won't French braid your hair on principle alone, but if you wanted some nice Freedom braids, I'm all for that.

Thursday's Child - I should slap you for that comment. French slap you. With a baguette.

While you wild and crazy kids are discussing hairstyling techniques, I'm contemplating all of the Photoshop Fun that could be had with this picture...

Not to mention all of the potential for caption fun... (LOLCats style!)

Rachelskirts

Rachelskirts

JaceFuse - Dude, Photoshop away. I'd love to see what your creative little noggin (haven't said THAT word in a while) could come up with for captions and stuff. As long as I get credit for the original picture, you're free to hack away at it. You could even post results in your next No Problemo entry! :)

Hahahaha, I love that expression. You are so cute. You should win the "Hot blogger of the year" award.

I bet you were even making a really scary noise.

Tez - Haha! Oh wow. That's beautiful. I'm sure it's mildly frightening to Tyler/Thursday's Child, though, seeing that his moniker on our joint blog is "The Brain." However, he would be a perfect victim with all his extra brains . . .

Scrangie - *blush* It's true. I totally made a little growling noise. Hahaha. (And whatever, you would totally steal the "Hot Blogger of the Year" award AND the "Best Beauty Blog of the Year" award. We should suggest those categories for next year's Blogger's Choice Awards.)

Thursday's Child

Thursday's Child

*shrieks* NO! No brains for Skirtsy. Not even my extra brains. I'm quite attached to them.

Rachelskirts

Rachelskirts

Thursday's Child - HAHA. Darn. You caught me.

Tez

Tez

Whoaaa. Dude actually has extra brains? Enlarged brains? Or just a too-small skull? Either way, that's a pretty badass pickup line, in some venues.

Can I be friends with your extra-brain guy? Because then I could make a pretty good case for myself being awesome. "You don't believe me? This guy has more brains than YOU and HE thinks I'm alright!"

Then we'd ride off into the sunset on Harleys, high-fiving each other and drinking smoothies, because smoothies rule.

Rachelskirts

Rachelskirts

Tez - Hahah!! Spectacular comment. As a reward, you may certainly be friends with my extra-brain guy. If he resists (how could anyone resist you and Harleys and smoothies??), I'll just add that to the growing list of things I force him to do. Bwa ha ha.

I think it's chronic that November has crappy weather and too many essays. When I was in school I called it Hell Month. Despite their impact on your NaBloPoMo commitment, I'm glad you've got some holiday time booked in there too!

And cheers to your sweet revenge!

Ah dang... got in on this one a bit too late. But, although I can't French braid well, I can try... I know the theory behind it, shouldn't be too hard, right?

As for Thursday's Child's List, I missed the right blog post to comment on. Dang. Anywho, looks like you're still going strong, keep up the good work. (And may the revenge go sweetly.)

Oh, and I love that pic! You look awesomely scary... Always looking good in front of the camera. ;-)

I agree, your best pics are the ones that emphasize your pretty eyes.

I'll leave this one up to everyone's own artistic interpretation.

Tez: Yeah, man, we can be friends, for sure. Additionally, yes I have extra brains!

Jamie - It really is a bit of a Hell Month. Everything is gloomy and gross, and midterms and essays pile up like no tomorrow. Plus, the pre-holiday stress madness starts swirling around in giant cyclones, eating people alive. Yeesh. I'm getting stressed just thinking about it!

Gilligan - Aww, thanks! I did get your other post with the reference to Tyler's list, so no worries. I'm just glad to see you're doing NaBloPoMo still, even though you started late. Good job!

Scott - That comment made me blush! Thanks for being so kind. :)

Jace of Fuse! - . . . I don't even know what to say to that. hahaha.

Thursday's Child - Just remember that you were MY friend first, kk? Awesome.

Sethly - I've actually considered buying and creating websites for friends as Christmas presents this year. Kinda like knitting scarves, but . . . not. Anywho, YAY for the Grammar Police lovin', and YAY for you commenting on my site! I miss you, dear Sethly!
