Why??? Vol. 2

I think it’s only fitting that I continue with the second installment of this series about one year after I started it.

Nevertheless, I present to you.

Why??? Vol. 2

1. Why are you not wearing shoes??

no shoesGuy, when I saw you in Psych class last week without any shoes on, I thought maybe it was a fluke and you forgot to put on your shoes. But then I saw you today, again with no shoes. Where are your shoes???

2. Why did I only tonight figure out I can send text messages by typing the name, not looking up the number?

decoy Phone, I’ve had you for a year now. But I’ve only now discovered by setting it to “abc” mode, I can start typing the person’s name in the screen to send them a text. Just figured this out, tonight.  Whyyy??

3. Mother Nature, why must you tease me so?

meal plans Nature, It was so nice and hot on Dutchmen Day, why has it not been warmer than 60 degrees since?!?!? Whyyyyy??

4. Speaking of this picture…

meal plans full

Student Affairs, WHY in the world would this picture of us end up on the cover of the new meal plan packet?? (The one that’s distributed to every student on campus. Yeah, that one.) Just wonderin.

For the comments: Can you help me answer any of these questions? Or do you have any questions of your own?

The BF’s Twilight thoughts

So as I’ve mentioned, the BF is reading Twilight. He tells me that he is kind of enjoying it, but there’s one thing that bothers him. Really bothers him.

He thinks that Robert Pattinson is the worst Edward Cullen that ever is or was.

I asked him to elaborate, and thus, what follows is my BF’s thoughts on why Robert Pattinson should never have been cast as Edward Cullen (all pictures and commentary complimentary of the BF, with quotes from the book in italic).

1. Greek God? No.

“He looked more like a Greek god than anyone had a right to.”

too much lipstickThat definitely does not describe R. Pattz. And he has too much lipstick on.

2. Jimmy Neutron

“I couldn’t imagine how an angel could be anymore glorious.”

jimmyneutron He looks like an alien, or a devil. Or Jimmy Neutron.

3. No contours

“I inched closer, stretched out my whole hand now, to trace the contours of his forearm with my fingertips.”

no forearms

Do you see any contours? Absolutely not.

4. Seriously disgusting and scrawny

“He lay perfectly still in the grass, his shirt open over his sculpted, incandescent chest, his scintillating arms bare.”

seriously disgusting scrawny sucks  thats hideous and spratp

Sculpted, incandescent chest. Look at his body dude, it’s not it!  He’s hideous, and his abs are spray painted.

5. Smiling is good

should be smiling like this

He should be smiling like this throughout the whole movie.

(The BF leaves me with these thoughts…) We can talk about how gay Bella is too…

For the comments: Do you agree with my BF’s thoughts? If you don’t, pick a fight with him.

Greg Laswell slays me

Way back when I was in London, I saw Ingrid Michaelson in concert with Greg Laswell. Nothing stood out to me then about him, and although Emily gave me his cd, I didn’t listen to it.

Well. Friday night I put it on for the first time.

And let me tell you.

Out of this much,
out of this much
I love him this much.

this much 
Which equals this.

thumbs up

Love with me.

For the comments: What do you think of Greg Laswell? Any band/singer you’ve recently discovered and love?

Dutchmen Day!!

Yesterday, my friends, was DUTCHMEN DAY!! A little bit about Dutchmen Day.
Dutchmen Day is supposed to be a surprise day of cancelled classes, outdoor games, food, and general fun-ness. Key word being “surprise.”
Here’s the deal with Dutchmen Day.

It’s never a surprise.

While throughout the 2nd semester there are a couple times when rumors start that Dutchmen Day is going to be the next day, there’s usually one night where everyone gets a text from a friend saying “I’m 99% sure tomorrow is Dutchmen Day.”

Monday night was that night.

Sure enough, at 4:00 am Tuesday I got a text from a friend in Student Government saying it was indeed Dutchmen Day. The roommate and I set our alarms for 6:15am.

Here’s another thing about Dutchmen Day. At 6:30 am, Student Govt. goes around with blow horns and whistles to wake everyone up. Those who get to the social quad early enough have the chance of getting a free Dutchmen Day t-shirt.

However, people are crazy about their t-shirts. Hence the roommate and I setting our alarms for 6:15. At 6:15, we put on our sweatpants and sweat shirts (which were already waiting beside our beds…we were prepared) and went down to the social quad. There were already a bunch of people down there.


Dutchmen Day morning is always fun, because you get to see everyone at their finest: bleary eyed, in pj’s, many times hung over. Good times.
We wait in line, hoping we still have a chance to get a t-shirt. At about quarter ’til, the president of student government stands on a chair to make an announcement, saying to know your t-shirt size, get in the right line, blah blah, and oh yeah, “The t-shirts are over at the library.”


About 250 students sprint towards the library, losing shoes, cell phones, dodging people and plants.

I’m sure we looked ridiculous.

However, our sprinting paid off. Roommate and I were 8th in our line for our dorm and got some sweet t-shirts.

DSC06130This is my special face.

We continued later that day with the Dutchmen Day tradition of putting on Dutchmen tattoos.

but I’m not.

We spent the rest of the day playing in the sun!!

83382403PS. Sean is most definitely resting his head on Emily’s breastses.

We ate yummy picnic food!

DSC06132Yay for special faces!!

And played some more in the sun!


And did this:


Our school had a webcam set up, so I called up The Boyfriend and had him screen shot Emily and I!


Can’t see us? Here we are!!

emily and i

The most epic part of the day, however, was the water balloon fight. I hadn’t participated in a water balloon fight since I was probably 6, and let me tell you, if you haven’t either, MAKE IT HAPPEN. There were about 30 people just chucking balloons at each other. We got sufficiently soaked and it rocked.

Out of all the pictures taken yesterday, I have a clear favorite. And it is this one.


The end.

My favoritist dish in the world

To the uninitiated, I present to you:

Macaroni & Cheese Soup

DSC06119( I would have taken a cooler picture, but I didn’t think of this blog post until I’d already put the mac & cheese in the fridge…)

How to make:
Ps. My dad made up this culinary concoction, hence the measurements are not specific.

Line the bottom of a big pot with salt, and boil a lot of water.
Put in a lot of macaroni noodles. Boil until they’re really really soft.
Drain. After you put them back in the pot, fill the pot with milk until it comes up to the line of macaroni.
Add in 2 tablespoons of margarine. (Tablespoons? However much is 2 of the lines on a stick of margarine)
Add in like 6 slices of American cheese.
Add in half a …“brick”…(what do you call those??) of Velveeta cheese, sliced.
Stir until all is melted and then = YUMTASTIC.
