This video is in honor of Deadly Duo weekend! See you soon Katnap!
to say i had the best time ever this weekend / miss you already / can’t wait to see you again would all be understatements.
Today is the birthday of the two who make RECON-4, four; HAPPY BIRTHDAY CA-CA AND JI-JI! These two babes are two of the best friends anyone could ask for! Colleen, thanks for being my only friend in 7th grade and for wearing pants to the mardi gras dance with me! Ji thanks for letting me be your charity case at field hockey camp and using make up to make me look ugly. LOVE YOU BOTH BUNCHES!
further evidence of the hilarity that is us. carolyn always finds the best gems from the pre-digital camera era.
This picture was taken the last night I ever saw Gingy. We found him in a happy meal and left him at a bar, perched safely above the table. I wonder where his journey has taken him and the mischief I’m sure he’s gotten into…every now and again, when the wind blows just right, I swear I hear his voice whisper “not my gum drop buttons”.
fair winds and following seas, old friend. also, i have half a mind to believe YOU’RE the one who told on CaCa for her kitchen & bathroom mischief at Auld Shebeen.
allhailthecranberries asked: Which obscure movie quote brings the most joy to you: "STUpid DYkini!" "A mare...A MARE!?!" "But you're so old" "Hey! You can't do that here!" (I hope you remember that last reference)
hahaha MEM’RIEEEES! all of them! but seriously, if anyone else references these quotes on a daily basis, as we do, let’s do
lunch an unlimited buffet soon.
here’s a cheat sheet, for inquiring minds, of the greatest films of all time:
and a few more for good measure:
“I stole the baby from you Daikini, while you were taking a peepee!”
“THE RED BULL?!”
“FRESH FISH, we catch ‘em, you buy ‘em!”
…and i’m pretty sure the last quote was the only actual talking we saw in that fine film.
i spent the last 30 minutes trying to reblog the above link but because IE6 sucks a dickwad, i’ll leave you with closing thoughts from carolyn because she’s my better half and i owe 99% of my funny jokes to her.
also: easy access to the link here.
ABBA - “Mama Mia”
all i want in life right now is to either
a) do a strictly ABBA night of karaoke with my best friends
b) dress as ABBA for Halloween/shits n’ gigs
c) flashback to 2001 when Ji and I performed this song for Carolyn to cheer her up after her sister moved away
d) be drunk in a bar while the staff closes and blasts ABBA Gold while i sing it to them and Jason drinks a scotch whisky that’s literally on fire
WELCOME TO MARF!!
Happy birthday month Kathleen, Mike, Jason, father, and little sister!!
hahaha. thank you to you and Mr. Smif!
allhailthecranberries said: my burned copy of this album was ruined during our last (literally) trip to wild wood. Who is better: Dream OR 3LW?
this is a hard hitting question that i can answer without a shadow of a doubt:
Dream > 3LW
1. there was no fried-chicken-in-the-face controversy for Dream
2. they rode ATVs in their music videos
4. they have a song with Loon (ultimately their downfall: Diddy wanted them to go too sexy)
that being said, 3 Little Women had some solid hits in “Playas Gon’ Play” and “No Mo”. which you should probably post.
Remember when you would post your class schedule on your AOL Instant Messenger profile to find out who you had classes with? Not a song, just a thought.
stop everything you’re doing:
the Presto Power Pop.
carolyn & i tend to have deep, meaningful and existentially inspired gchat conversations. today’s is no exception: the most supreme of all the salty snack foods - popcorn.
pictured above is what i consider to be the OG of the new wave of popcorn technology (let that sink it… it makes zippy sense). my parents still own theirs and swear it makes the best popcorn ever. it probably helps that my parents clean it once a decade, so there are literally years of seasoned popcorn remnants in the thing. consider it the lodge cast iron skillet of the popcorn world: the less you wash it, the better it tastes.
on that vein…
prior to the Triple P, we had a contraption similar looking to the green monster above. ours was red. my brother still owns it and - yes, you guessed it - it churns out the saltiest, buttery-est, yummiest popcorn of all time.
carolyn’s family had the much more tech-savvy Kalorik air popper:
it seems the popcorn machine is a dying beast, which works out great for cheapskates like me because the Triple P is now available on Amazon for $15. (oh ya, don’t forget to pick up a few Power Cups. yes, Power Cups.)
pop off, son!
why yes, Longwood is in fact my alma mater.
Farmville, Virginia. ain’t no shame.
