Today Britt went big time and drove down to the O.C. (Oak Cliff-- that's my hood) to have lunch with me. We split a dish. The waiter happened upon us right at the time I was giving my chunks of mozzarella to Britt.

Waiter: You don't like mozzarella on your mozzarella chicken?
Me: Well, I do. She just likes it more.
Waiter: So, you're giving her your cheese? Wow. Are y'all sisters?
Britt (quickly): NO.
Waiter: Friends?
Britt: Yes.
Waiter: Best friends?
Britt: Yes.
Me: Usually.

That being said...I don't really like the chunks of mozzarella. I'd rather just have it in regular cheese form.

Homecoming 07

Brittain is leaving the thriving metropolis of Houston and coming home to the 214 today. Hopefully for good. I am excited about this for many reasons. Most notably: we get to finish Felicity. And of course, we get to be friends seven days a week! Praise Him.

Not roomies. Still besties.

I moved out. But, I left some stuff at 2620 so I have a reason to go over there the next few days.

58-Nill (5800) is now where the party is.

Party Animals

I can't say I've ever hosted a really bad, unsuccessful party. That is probably because: 1. I haven't hosted a ton of parties. The less parties you host the better the odds. 2. Whenever I've hosted anything I used to always bake cookies. People love cookies.

Last night was much different. We had brie. Meaning, this party was a little more sophisticated than most I've ever really attended or hosted. I didn't really pick the menu. But, I was fairly happy with it. Extremely happy with the cheesecake bites.

I would say we had close to 40 people in between the walls of 2620. We even had a guy show up in a three-piece suit...without a shirt on. That made the whole party worthwhile.

I would like to thank Brittain for preparing most of the food, Tami for setting up the games and Ang(e) for arranging the living room. If anyone else was writing this blog they would thank me for the awesome beats I provided. Yes, DJ LC was in attendance.

Overall, I would give us an 8 on a scale of 10 for the party. Minus 1 point for the fact that it was around 167 degrees in here and 1 point off for our lack of parking spots.

A-Town (Down)

Last night I was house-sitting in Arlington. I was super bored, so I decided to call Britt. I said, "Britt, how do you do this? I'm so bored." I felt like for the first time ever I could relate to her and her travels. I said, "What should I do?" She said, "Why don't you call a friend?"

I was on the phone with her when she said this.

Friends Forever

Brittain is my best friend. If we can make it through 7 weeks of living together, we can make it through anything. Long live LB and LC.

I'd also like to add that Britt made a mean set of cookies tonight and she bought me some other goodies. True friend, ladies and gents, true friend.

Tami gets the most props for putting up with Britt and I's fighting. Shout out to Jerry's second born-- way to be Tabby Cat.



Not Jenny Smith

Last weekend was a little rough for LC and I. We just kind of fought a lot and kept picking at each other. We fight like sisters… It’s not a fun game. We’ve talked about it 100 times but we never seem to solve the problem. We just don’t take each other’s crap. For whatever reason, we are both overly harsh toward one another, yet overly sensitive at the same time. Not a good combo. I think our fighting was funny and entertaining to those around us at first, but its gotten to the point where its miserable to participate in or listen to. Sorry roommates/friends that have to hear it all the time.

We are working on it though. We both want to give up sometimes, but I think the friendship is definitely worth the struggle. We had a good talk last night and we even slept in the same bed. And didn’t fight about it. Way to go us.

Also, last Sunday night LC brought me the new US Weekly with Nicole Richie on the front and a new copy of To Kill a Mockingbird because I lost mine. I really, really appreciated that. LC, that was the best.

This weekend is going to be a good one… I can feel it.

I'm not a very good roommate. I often leave my shoes at the door. I do this because at 369 Ridgeview Lane it was ok to take your shoes off and leave them by the door. If you took them off in the living room they usually got placed by the door, not in your room. So. I still take my shoes off by the door.

Sometimes I don't immediately place my dishes in the dishwasher. Sometimes I just put them in the sink.

I am excellent at taking the trash out. And I'm also really good at making sure the thermostat is set at a reasonable temperature.

Oh, sometimes I leave my (clean) clothes on the dryer for days at a time.

Good things do happen during crap storms. These people in the pictures are proof of that. Bring on the crap storms. I have some umbrellas to stand under.


These shoes showed me Jesus' love today. In a big way.

Season Three

We made it to season three of Felicity. I can't help but wonder if I'll get to finish off the series. You see, we normally only watch Felicity on the weekends, but next Saturday I move out. Where does that leave me?

Tami is back. She is leaving again tomorrow. Angela and I will be the only ones in the casa this week.

Disclaimer: Anything I say about Britt in this blog is exaggerated times a million. Her rules are usually for the safety of others and for the betterment of myself. I mean, she only makes rules so I don't go out in public in some miserable outfit or something. Her rules are really for bettering America. Besides, I like rules. Reminds me of growing up on the farm.

Happy Birthday America

Britt and I got to travel to the lake (still not quite sure what lake that was) today to celebrate our nation's independence from England (shout out to Thomas Jefferson) with several other young Dallasites. It was big money fun. No sun, but lots of fun. We played some games, shared some stories, jumped on a trampoline, did some dancing and most importantly rode a jet ski. Of course, when riding the jet ski she had rules. "Number 1 rule: if you throw me off, I get to drive. Number 2 rule: if I get thrown off, you're going in with me." -- Britt

I didn't break any of the rules.

We also successfully managed to not fight at all, except when we had to share a bed last night and I moved once in like, 8 hours of sleeping. She told me to quit moving. I think I was just breathing though.

Only 10 more days left of living together. Still no major decisions on the blog. That's going to be a tough conversation and I think we're kind of avoiding it.

Bitter Sweet. Not a Symphony.

You know how when you graduated from high school you were all like, "Yes! I hate high school!" But, deep inside you were like, "OMG, I like, love high school. I own this place."

It's a bitter sweet feeling. So excited about what's to come, yet so sad about what you're leaving behind.

I am not leaving the blog behind. Only the couch.

Back in the Game

I'm back in Dallas again! And this time its for a whole week. In honor of the "the day" as LC calls it, and hence a day off in the middle of the week, I get to work right here in Dal. I've only been home for about 36 hours now, but they have been full of excitement. Last night we had Sunday night dinner at our house and we all got to experience Noelle's fabulous home cooking. We picked a GREAT roommate. Today, we all went to see Evening, the novel-turned-movie that inspired the New York Times philosophy that "not all novels deserve to be made into movies." It was a serious movie, but provided some mega-belly laughs for the six of us that went to see it. We were definitely "those girls" who giggle and act immature throughout the movie. Oh well. We also had a great talk about beanbags and baseball on the way. Quite enlightening.

Tami is in Cancun so I'm kind of mad at her.

Morgan and LC found a house and they are moving in in two weeks. So LC and I are no longer going to live together (tear). I mean, will we ever see each other again? Will we still be friends? Will we still watch Felicity for hours together? And the real clencher...what will happen to the blog?

LC and I will probably have to have a talk about this. We have been having some serious talks lately and are really beginning to sort out our issues. Maybe one day we will have a functional relationship.
