Every year my BFF and I get together and admit five things that we are thankful for but are embarrassed to say out loud. Things include silly things like velcro, because “I hate tying my shoes” (this was bff’s a couple of years ago, also slip-on vans) or jelly doughnuts because “they are amazing” (mine a couple of years ago and my favorite always). This year we got together and reveal our faves, and I decided to share them with the tumblr world cause I think everyone should have a dumb tradition like this. :D
- Tote Bags: they make carrying all of my stuff easy!
- Mangas: I’m addicted! There is no other way of saying it!
- Japanese Dramas: Also Addicted! I am in love with the characters so much! Asuka-chan!!! (Otomen) EEK!!!! EEK!!!
- TMZ: It makes being a gossip enjoyable
- Infomercials: They are so incredibly stupid sometimes and just plain silly that it reminds me that any body can make their dream come true, no matter how outrageous it maybe…
Sitting here surrounded by kids that are studying for the SAT’s makes me feel bad that I have a BA and that I didn’t even study that hard for the test. Also I kinda wanna laugh at them for studying so hard. But I wont…at least maybe not…
- Laundromat Blues: Dear Laundromat Attendant,
Please stop flirting with old men for tips and get somebody to fix the dryers. Sincerely, Your Clients
- Hipsters Beware!: Unlike some popular belief will tell, which I don’t know where said belief came from, we Mexican looking Angelinos do infect speak and understand English. So if you don’t want to get “verbally insulted” on the train, then please refrain from saying stupid things like: “Look at those guys with the grocery bags, do you think they are homeless?” (Some guys who commute on the train simply take their lunch/belongings to work on reusable plastic bags, it says on the bag to use again, and they simply take that advice very seriously.) Or “Do you ever wonder where and what they eat?” (To which I take personal offense to, because come on Hipsters, what do you think we are? Aliens? Or some sort of weird type of humans? We eat food, good food, some which you may never understand, in a cultural level, much like I don’t understand how people can eat duck liver or moose or calfs.) As a good rule of thumb, think: “If it would sound stupid to say or your grandmother would scold you for it, then lets bet not say it.” You have been warned.
- "Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That:" I have to admit that I really hated this saying, mostly because when I worked with middle school kids, they would say this over and over again that it sort of lost meaning. But yesterday while I was riding the train to my friend’s house, this old lady who was sitting in front of me, in designated senior and disabled seating mind you, was asked by this very young looking guy if she could move to the other seat. The lady looked at him and then said, "Ain’t Nobody Got Time for that, go look for your own damn seat!" And refused to move. And for that I salute her. Good for you old ladies everywhere that don’t have time for stupid stuff like that.
- Jamba Juice To Go! in Target: I like the concept of getting Jamba Juice on the go, basically anytime you want, but the end result is not up to par as the good juice in the real Jamba. The “juice” is mostly ice and the juice tastes more like orange juice than Mangos, as advertise. I think I would rather wait the five to eight minutes it takes to get the juice than go with convenience.
- Christmas Shopping Early= Winning!: Yup early Christmas Shopping means no crowds, no annoying kids, and no catchy Christmas songs on repeat. In other words it is = Winning!!! (take that Charlie Sheen!)
…that I have been gone for a really long while, but I promise to come back and visit very soon. Much love, V
