I always regret clicking on these kinda stories….noooooooo
I always regret clicking on these kinda stories….noooooooo
I dunno, these seemed pretty lame. Then I got to number 7 and Sierra Mist came out of my nose.
I enjoyed all of these candies, but I acknowledge the epidemic that is the RingPop predicament.
Dear Joel, we should have all the babies. Or, since you’re married, we could just plant a tree together and end the day with Cheesecake Factory and a derby bout. Either way, you are epic epicness. I think I need to sleep now.
I promise you, if it were not the middle of the night and I wasn’t terrified of waking the entire house, I’d be SCREAMING IN NOSTALGIC DELIGHT. That dusty forgotten corner of my brain thanks you for jarring loose some positive memories for once! Especially #3 SWEET HELL I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE AND I HAD COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN ABOUT THEM
DON’T SAY THAT *trying to outrun her 25th birthday*
#7: I saw that in theaters. What. Granted, I probably wasn’t old enough to anyway, but still! #9: I used to say “oldies” all the time, but now that this has started happening I say “classic” or “vintage”. #21: HOLY CRAP PHONE/MAIL ORDERS DO PEOPLE STILL DO THIS?!
Scrolled down the list to see if I saw my favorite. I did not. I demand the inclusion of Spice Girls vs. Ying Yang Twins “Wannabe My Badd Bitch”. Regardless of your feelings about either song, it is a near-flawless mashup and they actually work well together. Mashups are not about how you feel about one particular song or the other. It’s about taking two songs and creating a new listening experience from their unlikely juxtaposition.
I thought the Aladdin?Tom Cruise thing was fairly common knowledge…and I don’t see the big deal. Sure, he’s weird and controlling and completely dismissive of actual medical progress and… Oh, wait…I see it now. But he isn’t a bad looking guy…?
UM ALL OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND. When (okay, IF) I have children, they’ll be able to make the decision to watch the movie if they want when they move out. WHY did my prents allow me to watch that?! There’s one part in particular that terrified me to no end: I think it’s shortly before Alice gets to the kingdom or whatever and she’s lost in those creepy-ass woods, and OF COURSE the Cheshire Cat shows up…and Alice says something to the effect of, “I’m just trying to find my way.” And the cat responds in THE CREEPIEST WAY POSSIBLE. Forever scarred. SERIOUS.
*scrolling, scrolling…* I don’t remember any of th-HOLY SHIT JOE CAMEL …Geez, what does that say about my childhood? Though to be fair, I got a little dizzy from the flashback sustained as a result of #30
Probably shouldn’t have read this late at night in an environment where I have to keep quiet. I sound like a choking goose when I try to guffaw quietly.
LOLOLOLOLOL Remember being in the 8th grade and getting into an intense heated discussion with one of my best friends about the pronunciation of Hermione’s name…glad I didn’t bet any money; I was SOOOOOO wrong. No real damage done to the friendship, though - we went to the premiere of Sorcerer’s Stone opening night. Currently in the middle of re-(re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-)reading Goblet of Fire. I’m not sure what my life would be like if I hadn’t had the world of Harry Potter to escape into…
Did I miss Emily Waltham (Helen Baxendale)? Or did I just skip over her?? *rescans* Nope, totally not here. Wonder what she’s up to. Being totally invested in the characters, I didn’t like her character a whole lot, but she had a great line that always stuck with me: “…apparently to you people, I look like someone who´s got a balloon full of cocaine stuffed up their bum!” Pure poetry.
People would know most of these if they had bought the Friends magazine that hit newsstands a few weeks before the series finale in 2004. DUH. Wait, I was the only F.R.I.E.N.D.S supernerd who did that?? Oh, okay, never mind. Carry on. ;P
“I don’t know what I’m training for, but I hope it never happens.” I’m still laughing…I love Ellen to pieces.
YES “Shores of California”!!!
Yes, I’m taking the time to answer every single one of these. And I am saving it because sooner or later someone will ask one: 1. Legitimate question because I do live in a place with the word “beach” in the name. More annoying when I lived in Sacramento. But no, our beach is quite disgusting most of the time. At least to me. 2. I can’t even SWIM. 3. lolwut. 4. See 3. 5. I lived in apartments (SHITTY apartments) most of my life, so no. 6. N/A. 7. Negative. The happiest place on Earth is like an hour away and you must go through hell to get there (see 12). Also, overpriced everything. 8.No, but I’ve been to a Lakers parade. In L.A. it’s pretty much the same thing. You’ll see. 9. No, but I have had the chance (kinda). I got standby tickets to an Ellen taping twice. Both times I couldn’t go due to circumstances outside my control. 10. Um, there hasn’t really been a “big one” since like ‘94. I was 6. Soooo…they’re mostly sway-y. As in you’re standing there swaying. Kinda dumb. Or, you feel nothing at all. 11. No I haven’t, and what kind of bonehead question is this? Hello, Midwestern folk, are tornadoes scary?! 12. Yes. That picture was probably taken at noon on a Tuesday. 13. Does Cher need a last name? NO, because when you say certain names, you know who the hell I’m talking about. Likewise, when someone in CA hears THE 405, we don’t need to know it’s the I-405. We already KNOW it’s the winding road to hell we all loathe with a passion…too much? 14. No, because the idea of going was ruined by shitty TV. 15. See previous. Also, danger! Here be conservatives. 16. Nothing besides geographical location. They both have annoying overused words, they both think they’re better than the other, but ultimately, you will leave one to escape to the other. 17. This is a thing? I suck at being a Californian. 18. It’s not as bad as everyone says, but I’m black, soooooo that probably helps (though I am the WHITEST-sounding person ever…I don’t mean articulate”, I mean when people talk to me one the phone, they think I’m a blonde Caucasian woman…point being, in Compton, I NEVER TALK). 19. F that. But I know people who have, so yeah legit stereotype. 20. No, I hate pot. I hate all drugs. 21. Honestly? I don’t really like Mexican food all that much. Guacamole is pretty much heaven sent, though. TL;DR: Everything you’ve heard is false. Except the crap things. Those are half-true. Bleh. I feel very hipster-like towards my own home state.
I do agree, a lot of these can be considered first world problems, but everyone from the 7 year old kid sleeping in dirt to the celebrity resting their overly groomed head on a 300 dollar pillow can relate to #16, I don’t care what you say. Eventually you get into a position you can sleep in when all of a sudden…DAMMIT.
I really, really, REALLY want to do that just to see if the person writes Voldemort on my cup instead.
I usually tell baristas (and anywhere else I’m ordering from) Amy because it’s way easier than having the convo about my real name, which goes something like: “OK, great, and your name?”
*blank stare and/or ‘oh, shit, what?!’ look* “Um, can you spell that for me?”
“Yeah, sure, A-J-”
“No, no, A…J…”
“Um, no, A. J. A. H.”
“….oh, that’s pretty!” Every. Time. But I have worked in food service before, so I know it can be difficult to understand people if they mumble or whisper…combine that with all the noise going on around you…combine that with your brain being pulled in ten million directions, work and non-work related…it’s enough to drive you bonkers. I tend to just smile and say, “It’s fine, I get that a lot”. Plus, I’m used to people not understanding my name, so it’s not a big deal. At most it’s funny, but if something like this makes you mad, maybe try switching to decaf?
