Pointless Title for a Nice Post

In 1621, Pilgrims and Indians gathered around a table to enjoy the very first Thanksgiving. The holiday really began as a feast to celebrate the colony's first successful harvest.

But who cares about that, because last night MALLORY AND I GOT YELLED AT.


Mallory and I have started this tradition where we go to Barnes & Noble every Wednesday and do our math homework, but we really sit and laugh at each other. But tonight was different. Kind of. See since today is Thanksgiving we got out of school early yesterday and had the opportunity to stay out late last night. So we go to Taco Bell (which we do every other day, literally) and since it's past ten we're forced to go through the drive-thru. Of course we get the slowest worker and neediest customer the world has ever seen and we're stuck behind this bitch for a good fifteen minutes. This causes us to think on our relationship and start screaming out all of our inside jokes so the world will know how funny we are. You know, "I HOPE YOU GET DIABETES!" and "SAM!" and "You shoes untied."

I'll admit we were being annoying and maybe we should've stopped after the car honked at us, but that didn't give the angry black woman in front of us THE RIGHT TO YELL AT US!! Really, who takes the time to stick their head out the window and yell at two kids. You want to know what she said? You REALLY want to know? Here you go:

"Hey, you guys need to shut the hell up!" *me shutting the hell up* "All I'm tryin' to do is get ma orda right and I can't do it with two little bitches screamin' all ova the place!" *me apologizing while trying to keep a straight face and Mallory basically on the floor laughing* "Yeah, you think your bad now, don't you? What you gonna do bitch? Scream again and Imma get up out this car and whoop yo ass!" *awkward silence and trying not to laugh* "Are you and your little friend gonna shut up now?" *giving angry black woman a thumbs up. awkward Taco Bell employee hands over food.*

REALLY? Really, angry black chick? You're gonna yell at two seventeen year old girls in a Taco Bell parking lot? How mature. There's a reason why me and my friend were laughing at you. BECAUSE YOU'RE FUCKING RIDICULOUS! I'll admit we were being stupid, but COME ON!

After they left we went back and apologized to the worker for being stupid and then as we're going home we laughed our asses off. It's one of those moments where you wished you had a time machine so you could go back and grow a pair and just yell at a bitch. We came up with all these things WE SHOULD'VE DONE.

1) Back talk the bitch.
2) Get out of the car and kicked her skinny ass.
3) Gotten her license plate number and called the police.
4) Play loud, annoying country music.
5) Get Carl to find out for us and go stalk her.

All of this could have happened if I wasn't taken off guard. I wasn't expecting to be yelled at last night at a Taco Bell by an angry black chick. I sure do hope you find this as funny as I do because I'm never going to forget this.

Mallory says that I need to start writing down all of our adventures and one day write a book about us. I might actually do it.

In other news, here's a fluff update:

As you know, Team MC made Taylor cry last time. We expected some big extravagant prank from Team TD. But do you know what we got? YOU WANT TO KNOW?!?! Taylor and I hang out every Sunday, so when we're hanging at my house I didn't expect Taylor to fluff me. Maybe I should've notice her bring in a hoodie in 60 degree weather. Whatever, I'm just not observant. But it's like a 11:00 and I'm getting ready to lie down and there's a box under my pillow. Turns out my own mom went over to the dark side to help out her precious Taylor. It was a lame prank and you know it, Team TD.

Now Mallory and I realized that we would have the fluff over Thanksgiving. Well if you've had fluff you would see the recipe for Fantasy Fudge on the jar. Now isn't that a wonderful thing to serve to your family on Thanksgiving? We spent Tuesday making fudge and eating Taco Bell and we left a note on the bottom of the pan saying, "You just enjoyed the sweet taste of fudge. While we enjoyed the sweet taste of victory. Bon appteite." And now get this, we get up early the next morning, drive over to Taylor's, park our car in a random driveway, AND HIDE OUT IN THE WOODS. Why, you ask? Because we need to wait for Taylor to leave. Well, we didn't expect for Taylor, her mom, and step dad to leave all at once.

Now what we do next is probably considered breaking the law, and it is, but maybe you shouldn't leave you doors unlocked. Mallory and I go in Taylor's house and put the fudge in the fridge.

Later, when I'm helping Taylor out after school for a wrestling tournament, her mom and Taylor spend the whole time wondering who put the fudge in the house. Apparently, I'm a good liar cause they never expected a thing. Team TD should remember next time that I'm an excellent baker and an excellent liar.

Now the Fluff War has gotten bigger over the last few weeks. There's a fan page!!/pages/The-Fluff-War/167116409986777

Team MC have big things coming. Don't worry.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and to all a good night.

I've Been Thinking About...

My maturity level lately. I mean for a seventeen year old junior in high school I'm pretty immature. But then I look around at everyone that's younger and I just want to slap them in the face for just being stupid. And then I turn around and act just as stupid. *sigh* Oh well....

In other news, I've done nothing important today. So this post is very pointless, but if you'd like to read about my sad day so far I've made a list:

1) I stayed up to midnight, losing precious sleep, to talk to Nicole. We made a break through with our relationship(?) and became Facebook friends. I love this girl so much that I even liked her fan page. Yeah, THAT MUCH. So, now we are blog, e-mail, and Facebook buddies. We also talked about me doing Greek gods in Barnes & Noble and about the possibility of us one day meeting and talking like gangsters. And just think, a month ago I was just a creepy stalker reading her blog.

Moving on...

2) I walked around my house with no pants on for about 2 hours and then finally got dressed to go play tennis with my mom where we taught a little boy how to play. Before we knew it we were teaching 2 other kids how to play. Bottom line, kids need more practice with the art of tennis.

3) I avoided homework and watched Tegan and Sara on Youtube and stalked all my friends on Facebook while trying to convince my mom to go see Harry Potter with me (it didn't work). After, I proceeded to play with the dinosaur Mal (that's what our math teacher calls Mallory) stole for me last night. We named him Frank.

4) I ate gross chinese food and watched Blind Side for the fourth billionth time.

5) Debated whether or not to reread Looking for Alaska...I am.
6) Realized how stupid and pointless this list is. It really shows how uneventful and not funny my day was.

7) I'm going to take a shower.
Buuuuuuuut, I have pictures to share:

That's Frank. You don't mess with Frank.

This is Carl. He's 36 and works as the night
manager at Taco Bell. He's the
And I can impersonate him very well apparently.

This is Taylor at our new Burger King. She was very excited.

We Made Her Cry

Want a fluff update?

Not much has happened since I last reported, but we did do something worth remembering.


So, Team MC enlisted the help of Mrs. Trogdon (I have no idea what her job is), but she was totally game for participating in the Fluff War. During 2nd period she called Taylor down to the office and made her sit in her office while she went out and called the SRO officer down. He came in and handed her tissues saying "You're gonna need these." I wasn't there, but I'm sure Taylor freaked. So Trogdon starts yelling at her about how she's hazing and how she can go to court and then the best thing happens....SHE CRIES. CRY. CRY BABY. CRY, BABY, CRY. FUCKING CRIES.

She comes back to class still shaking with the fluff and everyone knows she just got owned! When I went to lunch everyone congratulated me. IT WAS AWESOME. Some people thought it was mean that I made my best friend cry. But this is a WAR. And you do what ever you have to do in a war.

Team MC is back in the game.

Mallory and I have spent the last few days talking about nothing but fluff. WE HAVE IDEAS.

By the way, Team TD is now Taylor and our friend Savannah. She's cool, but she picked the wrong team to be on.

Just One Big Circle

This is completely out of nowhere and probably the most serious I'll ever get with you, but I've been thinking.

I'm living in a giant circle.

Not literally (though...). I mean an imaginary circle where things are just expected of me. My friend and I were talking a few days ago about our futures and what we wanted out of our lives and we got into the topic of kids. We're 17 and way too young to have this conversation, but this is what we do. Anyway, she didn't want kids at all and has no desire to ever have one, which I found completely weird. I guess I just assumed everyone wanted kids and wanted to have these families and then this chick comes in and throws me off balance. I thought, "OK, I can accept this. Some people just don't like kids.", but then she starts telling me these things that are completely different than what I was raised to believe.

And then it hits me.

I'm living a tradition life.

You know that kind where you go to college, get married, and have kids all in that order kind of life. If you still don't understand what I'm trying to explain then let me draw you a picture...

I feel as if I was raised to believe that I HAD to go to college and I had to pay attention in school to get good grades. That when I got older I assumed I HAD to get married and have kids. And now I realize it's so tradition and boring and when I have my own kids I know they're going to repeat the same cycle. Do I really want that? Am I really that afraid that if I don't go to college I'll get a crappy job and live a crappy life? Yes, I am. And every other thing that's in the cycle falls into place. I know I want to travel. I know I want to see the world and see great, unexpected things, but where does that fall into the circle? That one little line that says "Travel"? I want to live in my car and work crappy jobs just so I can move to the next town. I want my only responsibility to be is me. I don't want to worry about school, and grades, and other people that I'm supposed to be around. Following this circle is not going to get me that.

Don't get me wrong, I want kids and want to get married. All the circle is going to get me is a comfortable life. And there's nothing wrong with that. It's just it might not be all that I want.

Did I explain this well enough or did I just ramble for the hell of it?

New Look

The old layout was stupid. So Miss Mallory painted me an awesome sign. It's all thanks to Nicole because we want my blog to be cooler than her's.

Just a Bunch of Randoms

I really have nothing much to say today other than a few little things. So I'm just going to give you a list of things going on in my life right now.

1) I gave blood today! It was my first time and I thought I would pass out when really I sat there and watched the blood come out of my arm and then I ate cookies. I just saved 3 people's lives today.
2) My new obsession is the song Closing Time by Semisonic. You're probably asking, "Why is she listening to a song that came out in 1998?" Yes I looked up the year. But here's why. There's a new movie called 'Friends With Benefits' coming out in July with Justin Timberlake in it and HE SINGS FUCKING CLOSING TIME. And it's beautiful. And most of the movie is about sex, so it's right up my alley. I. Am. Not. A. Whore.
3) Nicole, here's your video. I suck with cameras and filmed it wrong. No judging would be appreciated. Just turn your head sideways or flip the computer on its side. I also got this:

Be jealous.

4) And now it's time for the grand finale: FLUFF STUFF!

As you all know, Mallory and I are in a war with our friend, Taylor. No, I will not tell you the entire story AGAIN. Seriously, I'm getting tired of it, so quit asking. But I will update you on what's happened in the last few days.

So we last left off with Taylor making a scavenger hunt for Mallory in the school. Well Team MC got stressed out from school and took a week long hiatus from the war (rules are if you don't return the fluff within 7 days you're out). Well once our week was almost up, me and Mallory looked at each other and was 'SHIT' we got to get to work. So we took John (the stuffed elephant that was buckled up in my backseat and went with me everywhere) and cut him open, stuffed the fluff inside and safety pinned him back together.
Poor John, always abused. I then went over to Taylor's house while she was at band practice and tucked John into her bed. Another week goes by and this morning I walk into my journalism class with a CAKE sitting on my desk. A CAKE. CHOCOLATE. My teacher insists on taking a picture of this for the newspaper (I actually did work and wrote an article about the war, don't worry you'll see it soon) and then let me dish out pieces of cake to the class. After digging the jar out of the cake I see that on the bottom Miss Taylor wrote "Do something worth remembering."

Don't worry, we will.

I Want An Uber Mix

Hey, hey, hey Blogger Buddies.

Or just Blogger Buddy. Since I'm pretty sure the only person reading these are Nicole. Maybe? Maybe not? Whatever. If so then this is like texting over the internet for us, right? Or I guess you could call that email. Or blogging.

Anyway, I'm eating Ramen noodles and I have to be at school in like 9 hours. I'll probably sleep in cause I can't hear my Pokemon alarm and I hate journalism and my mom is going out of town tonight . I'm just rambling. Lets get to the point of this post.

I want an uber mix CD. Anyone want to help?

All I have so far is:
Scar - Missy Higgins
Sweeter Than This - Katie Herzig
Crazy for This Girl - Evan & Jaron
January Wedding - The Avett Brothers
Winter Winds - Mumford and Sons
Temporary Blues - The Features
Uncomfortably Numb - Butch Walker

I need 12 more songs! They've got to be good. Like great good. I'm feeling a Tyler Hilton song needs to be in there, but I say that about every mix I make.


Saturday, November 6, 2010


So in case you don't read this thing and didn't bother to even look at my last post, let me fill you in...


Got it? Good.

Now I've already said this one billion times, but I fell in love. I WANT TO MARRY TYLER HILTON. I would probably be a stalker if I lived in Los Angeles and had money for night vision goggles. But my blog buddy (who I like to mention often to my friends) filled me in on this dude Josiah Leming was opening for him and when I saw this blond headed dude I fell in love. Like this was the dude I would cheat on Tyler with, but then feel bad and go back to Tyler and go through marriage counseling with because I just love him so much. But anyway, my best friend Taylor loved him and just wanted to run over and tackle him right there. Dion Roy also played a few songs, and we had a nice conversation after about how baller we were to be at a concert on a Wednesday night when we had to go to school the next day.

BUT DUDE IT'S TYLER HILTON. And no one is as great as him.

"Meet Tyler Hilton" was the first thing I ever wrote down when I started my Life List and now I'm happy to say that I can finally cross it off.

It's Just a Little Obsession

I seem to be posting a lot lately. That's OK, because this one is actually important. Why you ask? BECAUSE I'M GOING TO SEE TYLER HILTON TONIGHT!

Oh...still don't know him? Then lets get serious and I'll explain this wonderful man to you.

Tyler Hilton is one of the greatest artist you'll ever hear. And you've most likely never heard of him. You'll probably never hear him on the radio or see his albums in stores. He'll never be A-list famous or be the star in an Oscar winning movie. And what's great is that he's perfectly fine with that.

If you watch One Tree Hill you might remember Tyler as Chris Keller. This is where I first saw him and since then I've been in love. He went from Tree Hill to playing Elvis in Walk the Line and the punk in Charlie Bartlett all while coming out with an amazing album. If you still can't recognize him, he was in Taylor Swift's Teardrops on my Guitar video. Since then he's taken a break from acting and is getting ready to release his new album, The Storms We Share, coming out sometime this fall. To say that I'm ecstatic would be an understatement. I can't explain how much I love this dude. I should just stop here and let you figure out why this guy is so great to me, but I feel like I need to defend him and fully explain it to you.

His voice is raw and when you see him perform you can tell that he loves what he's doing. He takes time to get know his fans and he just seems like a nice guy. He's pop music and he's not afraid to admit it. His songs are about real and inspiring and heartbreaking things all in the same song. There's nothing fake about him. When he's on stage it's just him and his guitar as he sings his heart out to hundreds of fans. There's no great story to how he got to where he is today. He was just a seventeen year old kid that had his fifteen minutes on a radio show.

He covers Bob Dylan's Boots of Spanish Leather and usually I would say no one can cover a Dylan song as good as the original, but when I heard Tyler's version I thought it was honestly better. I saw more emotion in it and passion. His cover of Tom Petty's Won't Back Down isn't bad either.

I'm only trying to spread the love. Here are some other covers and his own songs:

Missing You
You'll Ask For Me
Sunset Blvd.
When It Comes

At the risk of sounding like a total psycho, Tyler Hilton is fantastic. Here's a guy with real passion and talent for his music. He'll never get the recognition he deserves and that's just really sad.

Continuing Post of The Bucket List

Seriously, I hate calling this a Bucket List. Can someone come up with something

OK, lets continue with my never-ending list.

Meet Tyler Hilton - Oh, never heard of him? Well go to YouTube and LOVE HIM. I want to marry him.

Spend the night in a Wal-Mart - Can you get kicked out for sleeping in Wal-Mart?

Crowd Surf - Cause I'm a rockstar.

Read Atlas Shrugged - This book is over 1000 pages. Every time I try to read it I get to chapter 3 and give up.

Go to Italy and find the most perfect Italian Sub - In case you never read that summary thing beside my picture...I love Italian subs.

Win the Fluff War - We're Team MC. We're destined to win.

Quit a job for no reason - This would require me actually getting a job.
