Shhhh Act Like a Cat

That is still one of my favorite Youtube videos. But that is not the point of this.

I’ve been meaning to write this for a while, but keep getting distracted. Did you know that apparently some boys really like girls who can make authentic cat noises? I didn’t either. For the Super Bowl I was invited to a married person party by my old roommate. I accepted because my other option was watching in my apartment alone. BORING. And then AFTER I had accepted she was like “Oh by the way, there will be one other single kid there.” TRICKED! But it was to late to turn back, and I figured I’m pretty excellent at seeming unapproachable, I will foil her clever plan by simply being myself*. SO I go, everything fine. He’s cheering for the 49rs and I had already committed to cheering for the Ravens, Because hello, I love The Blind Side. Unfortunately for me this made him feel like he should tease me about who I was cheering for, Unfortunately for him I didn’t engage, because in reality I didn’t care who won THAT much. Also his facial hair was offensive to me.

So another attendee of this party was the host couples 2 year old child, who loved me. So he comes up to me all of a sudden and meows like a cat. my ONLY option is to meow back. Which took me from the position of cool person in the room, to COOLEST person in the room. He just kept meowing at me so I would meow back and then he started rubbing his head on me, like a cat. Normally I would think this was hilarious and weird, but this time it was hilarious, weird, and useful. Because I had sort of made it my goal to make this other single kid think I was just bizarre, because I wanted to foil my roommates plans. Everything is going perfectly. Then someone else at the party mentions Tom Brady is his fave Football player. And I say Tom Brady is a douchebag, and pull out my soapbox and stand on it for a while. Turns out that kid hates Tom Brady as well, an unfortunate coincidence. He said “You’re my new favorite person!” I didn’t really even acknowledge this. Then I go back to acting like a cat. Not really my best first impression. It’s fine. We leave, and I gloat to myself because I was successful in avoiding a complete set up.

The next day my friend text me “Hey, So don’t be mad at me but Bran text my husband and asked if you would want to go out sometime.”
A couple things:

  1. A boy who likes a girl who acts like a cat for an hour is not to be trusted.
  2. He’s borderline pansy, because he didn’t just ask them for my number, he asked them to ask me out for him
  3. His facial hair is still offensive to me
  4. I actually didn’t talk to him at all.
  5. He’s 30 and I don’t have to date 30 year olds till I am 25
  6. See number 5 and number 1 read: Desperate
  7. I’m snobby, but it’s ok

I pitched a small fit about it but in the end said I would go. Luckily I haven’t heard back about it, Unluckily, now I feel like I can never talk to my old roommate again because she’ll suck me in.

*In one of our conversations at the Superbowl thing she was asking me if I was dating anyone and I was like no. blah blah blah. And she was like “You just don’t know how to act around boys. You need to be yourself, but way nicer.” And I just thought to myself, “So you want me to not act like myself really.”

My Mother Really Wanted Me to Have a Talent. Alternately Titled: Kelli is a quitter

Like Really bad I think. Today campus was basically a giant Ice sheet, and I wore boots with ZERO tread. And I was joking with my friend about how I needed to brush up on my Triple toe loop, since I had taken figure skating when I was approximately 8. And then I realized. I have taken basically every type of lesson. No stone was left unturned in my quest for talent and the only one I actually managed to get is a very expensive hobby for a college student… So I don’t know that it actually counts.

Lets take a look back at my many almost skills.   Continue reading

An Ode to Valentines Day: A Master Post

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!♥

We LOVE Valentines Day, and by this I don’t mean just sort of in a halfhearted sort of way. I mean that we LOVE it (caps for emphasis).  So inorder to celebrate here is a post that was originally supposed to be an average, everyday, normal length post, but somehow mutated into this enormous monster.

red valentine heart

First up is this lovely short film which is simply adorable. My favorite Uncle showed it to me, and I pretty much became obsessed with it. He’s pretty sure it is what inspired this lovely Disney Short.

…And here is a video made by Post Secret (which we have both been obsessed with for years) that has a bunch of lovely Valentines Day secrets (P.S. Sorry if the eye one creeps you out. It creeped me out a bit).

And now here is a relatively short list of some Romantic Comedies that you can watch on Valentines Day.

VALENTINES DAY MOVIES

  • Sleepless in Seattle- You can’t go wrong with a little Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Actually I take that back. One time I watched Joe Verses The Volcano, and apparently you can go wrong. This one came out ok though. In addition to Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks it also features one of my favorite US cities, precocious children, and the Empire State Building on Valentines Day.
  • Valentines Day- I’m not really sold on this movie, but I’m giving it a free pass because of it’s title. Also it’s a really great concept. Sort of a Valentines version of Love Actually with a bunch of different interconnected couples, and a lot of big names in the cast. Love Actually is way better though so if you don’t mind the sort of Christmas theme than I totally put myself behind that option.
  • You’ve Got Mail- Another Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks film. I actually really dislike Tom Hanks, but I make an exception for these two movies. I have always really liked this film. If you are into older films you could watch the original version titled ‘Shop Around The Corner’
  • He’s Just Not That Into You- This movie is hilarious, and it also features lots of different types of loosely interconnected couples. Fun Fact this movie is actually based off of a self help book of the same title. It is also one of the few things that Jennifer Anniston has done since Friends that I actually liked.
  • While You Were Sleeping- I love this movie. I think Kelli might hate this movie, but I can’t remember why. Either way I’m a sucker for any awkward Saundra Bullock Romantic Comedy, and I find this one to be particularly enjoyable.

Next is an exhaustive collection of Valentines Day/Love themed playlists. Alternative Titles: If There Isn’t a Playlist Below With Your Current Love Situation I’ll Be Surprised; I Like Themed Playlists Too Much, and Have No Life; or I Listen to a Lot of Embarrassing Music (your choice).

Do Appliances Dream of Electric Heaven

So I’ve been working on a giant Valentines Day post, but I noticed that my posts lately have been less like blog posts and more like some kind of holiday event calendar. Then I saw this post which has been sitting in my dash as a draft for who knows how long.  I don’t really remember why I never posted it, but I do remember coming up with the title and thinking I was really cool.
_______________________

Lately I have been breaking all my stuff. I may have just ruined my iPod…. and my lap top. Also for the last 3 years I have received a digital camera for Christmas, and I have subsequently ruined/lost all of them. I seem to have very poor luck with cameras. The first one I brought a long to the pool with me and my sunscreen exploded and ruined both my camera and my old iPod (it was a rough day that ended with me breaking not only electronics, but also a bone). The second one I brought to Rawhide. Enough said. As for the last one I went to a concert and at some point it slipped out of my pocket and most likely got trampled by hundreds of people. :( I decided to dedicate this post to appliences that met untimly deaths.

  • All of my brother’s cell phones. He seems to have very poor luck with cell phones. He has washed atleast 3 with his laundry, cracked several screens, and even ran over one with a lawn mower.
  • My other brother’s iPhone which he accidentally buried with one of those giant digging machines.
  • The electrolux vaccume which my brother tried to vaccume up a pool of water with.
  • The cell phone I dropped off a roof.
  • The remote key for our car which accidently took a trip down the river
  • My old stereo which fell down a flight of stairs

RIP stuff.  I miss you.

Merry Christmas From BFF Bloggers

Here’s a little Christmas photo, and the first 8 things on our Top 10 Christmas Letter (to be finished at a later date….maybe). Merry Christmas!

Christmas BFFs

Hello Friends and Family! Wow! What a year 2012 has been!

Top 10 Things of 2012

  • We discover Teresa Jack. the worlds most interesting girl. We now follow her life’s progress via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.
  • We became obsessed with North Korea and The Avengers at around the same time, Google predicted searches got a little interesting.
  • Sadie worked long hard hours at a grocery store.
  • Kelli moved back to Logan and never works, but survives taking 21 credits fall semester and only whined a few times a day.
  • We apply and are accepted to work at Riverway Ranch Camp where we accomplished many horseback riding bucket list items, Such as; swimming on horses and riding a friesian dressage horse. How exciting!
  • We road tripped to Seattle and arrived at 3am due to some poor planning skills. While there we placed some gum on The Gum Wall.
  • In Seattle we are spectators for the prestigious Windermere Cup which convinces us we should probably take up rowing. This has yet to happen and probably never will
  • We go on a Knowlton family camping expedition to go rafting.There were different cooking teams and our team won. Some might tell you that it wasn’t a competition. They are all LYING. It was definitely a competition, as all things are.

We hope your year has been as productive and amazing as ours has!
Sincerely,
Sadie and Kelli
