i gotta wear shades

you know how some people know what they want to be when the grow up from the time they're like 8? i am not one of those people. i'm pretty sure that at the age of 8 i wanted to be an olympic gymnast. this is especially hilarious since i was already too tall for that particular career. not to mention the fact that i was a little chubby and a lot uncoordinated. i guess some things never change.  at 10 years old i had given up the far fetched dream of tumbling my little heart out in front of a worldwide audience and had moved on to something far more realistic. i was going to be famous. that's it. i had no plan for how or why i would reach such renown status, but that was my plan. too bad reality shows hadn't been invented yet. as i got older (and wiser) my dream of world domination didn't change much, but the reason for it did. see, at 10 i wanted to be famous just to be famous. at 12 i wanted to be famous so i could meet all the other famous people (especially boys...). at 15 i wanted to be famous so i could be rich. in my defense, i did have plans to spread my wealth among those less fortunate than me. by the time i was 19 i had discovered late night talk shows and my reasoning had reached it's apex. i was going to be famous so that i could appear on talk shows and dazzle the world further with my amazing personality. more than that, i was going to get on "late night with conan o'brien" for one reason and one reason only, to ask him this question: "can i touch your hair?" i mean, let's just face it, coco has the best hair in show business. hands down. i still secretly want this to happen. okay, not so secretly, but that is not the point. the point is, while i still have no plans for achieving fame and fortune, i have (FINALLY) figured out what i want to do with my life. as yet, i haven't really figured out how i'm going to get there, but my future's so bright...

if a tree falls in the woods...

remember that time when it was the coolest thing in the world to have a tree house in your backyard? when i was kid, my brother and i (but mostly my brother) attempted to construct one. we had the perfect trees for it. unfortunately, that was all we had. turns out, neither of us was much of an engineer and we failed. we REALLY failed. we ended up with a single sheet of plywood nailed (using three times as many nails as was necessary) sort of between a couple of branches. this was fine when we were simply hanging out in the tree, but it did not allow for any privacy, nor did it provide much protection from the elements. and sleepovers? forget it, roll over one too many times and you might find yourself with a broken bone (or eight). unhealthy. too bad, would have been awesome. who am i kidding, it would still be awesome. if i had a yard with a tree, i would definitely build a tree house. that is, i would find someone a bit more skilled than i am to do it for me. forget about your basic tree house, i want an actual house in a tree. with bedrooms and a kitchen and stuff. kind of like these ones...

gummy love

Pronunciation: \ə-ˈdik-shən, a-\
Function: noun
Date: 1599

1 : the quality or state of being addicted
2 : compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance (as heroin, nicotine, or alcohol) characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; broadly : persistent compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful

hi, my name is lindsay and i'm have a gummy bear addiction.  you laugh like i'm joking. i'm not. i have a problem. i'm not really asking for help, i just thought you should be aware in case you ever want to give me a gift and don't know what to get. gummy bears are an excellent gift idea. for the record, winco foods carries the absolute best gummy bears i've ever had. i stopped there last tuesday and i bought 6 pounds of gummy bears. 6 POUNDS!!!! i thought that would keep me content for about a month. wrong! it has been 1 week, 2 days and i am about to polish of the last handful of my 6 pound purchase. see, i told you i have a problem. in my defense, i have shared with my roommates, friends, and co-workers, but the primary consumer has been me. me. i ate them. all of them. i can't help it. they're just sooooo good. cover them in chocolate and they're even better, but that's another issue entirely. there's something about their squishy little brightly colored bear bodies that gets me every time. not to mention their cute little faces. i like to tear the heads off these little guys before consumption. does that make me totally morbid? oh well, i don't care if it does. don't even think about staging a gummy bear intervention or you'll get the same treatment.
