aaonvimeo: it's so hard to explain how we're friends

aaonvimeo: so i told carl's parents that we're going to stay with you

aaonvimeo: and his dad was pretty weary

islebehere: lol

aaonvimeo: Until I was like, well if it makes you feel any better, HM thinks WE'RE going to be the weird, scary ones

aaonvimeo: And all of the sudden, he was relieved

islebehere: HAHAAA!

aaonvimeo: like, oh, so they're not bad afterall

new tunes

listen to the best of the Across The Universe soundtrack over on the sidebar.


Addie: what are you doing tonite?

me: i have to find something to wear to the shower tomorrow. i'm making S1 go to the mall with me. i hate going to the mall.

Addie: yeah, i know... cuz you don't like your weight right now and feel uncomfortable trying on clothes.

me: uhm.. no, actually. it's cuz i just really hate the mall, but thanks for getting my low self esteem back in check, Dr. Addie!

Addie: free of charge!

we were both cracking up for the next 20 minutes, just thinking about that over and over again.

definition: watching a movie with the karaoke machine your niece left at your house.

Woz came over last weekend and we finally watched watched
Across the Universe. not bad. not bad at all. great soundtrack. Evan Rachel Wood.. her voice.. when she did "If I Fell"... like buttah!

anyways, HM had the idea that we amp it up a bit... with the karaoke machine and 2 mic’s! totally worth it! it takes it to a whole new level. i don’t think i can ever go back to watching a musical-ish type movie without the mic’s again.

next up:
Purple Rain fo sho!
