masterpieces of our time

24 07 2008

Occasionally, I’ll come across something that I have seen before, but have completely forgotten about. (insert joke about final papers here). This time, I am referring to the absolutely fantastic wonder that is Confessions of a Broken Heart by Lindsay Lohan. Not only is the song grammy worthy on its own, but the video… my god.


All it takes is Ali Lohan attempting to act to prove that Lindsay can.

I should breakaway from my typical list-style response to this video. But I can’t.

1. I know that no one reads this blog, but can SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHERE LINDSAY GOT THAT AMAZING DRESS? The one that has the sparkles on the top and the yellow craziness on the bottom. I feel like that dress is my version of heaven.

2. The rosary beads are a nice touch. The pope would be proud.

3. That woman is not skanky enough to be Dina Lohan. Not at all. Casting dropped the ball on that one.

4. The creepiest part of the Lohan-style parenting isn’t that they fight in the living room, it’s that they lock their daughter in some dingy public restroom before fighting. Seriously. How did Lindsay get in there? Is that supposed to be her bathroom? How did she not grow up with Hepatitis? Why is the bathtub full of water? Some sort of emergency evacuation plan? I don’t understand why Lindsay is clearly in my middle school bathroom when Ali and the ‘rents seem to be in rooms that aren’t in violation of the sanitary health code.

5. AND IN THAT DRESS, FOR SHAME! DON’T RUIN THAT DRESS! I DON’T CARE HOW TROUBLED YOU ARE! Here’s an idea, Linlo… You get up OFF the floor, stop splashing rank bathtub water all over yourself, spontaneously break the window (I know you can do it, since you show off this amazing skill later in the video), sell that dress to me for cash, and buy yourself a new bathroom.

6. I kind of like this song/video. *sheepish*

IN OTHER NEWS… I’m keeping track of all the books I read in 2008 on a separate page called “Book List.” It’s up there next to “Home.”
16 out of 50… and it’s already July. I’m trying!

So Jessica made one of these. I thought it was cool. Observe. BOYFRIEND LIST REP! Also, let’s take note and LOVE how many times I say “headbands” (thank you Gossip Girl post).

Make one yourself here!





everything is tiny!

13 07 2008

As a result of living in dorms in Taiwan, I am no stranger to odd living circumstances. When I arrived in Denver, however, I noticed a couple of things that I found to be… strange.

I share the room with one other person, and so there are two twin beds in the room. Nothing odd or weird about this, until you hear that… the beds are right next to each other. It’s like we are sharing a King sized bed. It is VERY weird. We managed to split them far enough apart to get a small, six inch divide between the beds, but it’s still weird. To be perfectly honest… if WE think it’s weird, I can’t imagine guys living here. They would freak out.

The other thing that is funny is the fact that the appliances in the kitchen are TINY! The fridge SEEMS normal sized at first, but then you realize that it is, in fact, stunted.

I feel like Alice in Wonderland.





what would blair do?

Yale had better get used to this.

Yale had better get used to this.

I envy this girl so much it’s insane.
1. HAIR & HEADBANDS
2. wardrobe
3. her apartment
4. HAIR & HEADBANDS
5. manipulative nature (it’s just so badass)
6. HAIR & HEADBANDS

In the fall of 2007, I started the semester with 0 headbands. I now have 13. 2 of them have bows.

You might ask, “did you seriously buy headbands to copy Blair Waldorf?”

Um. Hells yes. I actually judge YOU for asking.

And I know I originally hated the Gossip Girl narration, but if I EVER meet Kristin Bell I’m going to have her record my outgoing phone message as such:
Hello Upper East Siders, Summer here. It seems you were trying to call me. Unfortunately, I answer to a different call. The call of the wild and crazy. So hand over the latest dish, and maybe you will get served in return! You know you love me, XOXO, Summer.

So I just came across this awesome Lifehacker post called “Are You a Productivity Hobbyist?”.

Yes. I am.

4 07 2008

So I realized that in my last post where I talked about the book club, I mentioned that I hadn’t finished any books since Girl at Sea. And that I was still reading The Silver Chair. And I realized today that is a lie! While I haven’t “read” any other books, I did listen to The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart in its entirety on audiobook! It was fun! I had never done it before. So all lies aside…

14. The Boyfriend List
