20: Bye Bye Birdie

I'm off to Italy for five weeks! The past few weeks has been a mess of twelve hour work shifts, trying to figure out how to use my new camera and panicked packing. Such fun!
(I still don't really know how to use my camera, I am still not fully packed and my last cheque hasn't arrived yet, but that's okay! Cause I'm just watching the Hills anyway.)



19: Siblings -Shit On It! Shit On It! I Love My Sister.

Right now I'm working 11.5 hour days and reading Pretty Little Liars on the 50 minute commute there and back. 

Ergo in the few minutes I have before I pass out at night, I've needed a bit of a pick-me-up and what with all the dysfunctional sibling relationships in Pretty Little Liars (sisters pushing each other down stairs, sisters killing each other et cetera et cetera) I've been rewatching Friday Night Lights.

Johnny and Adam are one of my favourite siblings on television. 
I get very emotional seeing siblings on TV. Whenever I'm watching a hospital show and someone's crying over their sibling I feel the need to call and make sure my sister is okay. Whenever I'm watching a crime procedural show and there has been a case of fratiricide or sororicide (I had to look that up, who knew it was called that?) I feel the urge to call my sister and let her know that even if she stole my favourite toy, I would never kill her. 

It's nice to see siblings getting along, even if their method of getting along is mostly just pranking each other every Friday night dinner. 


Because no matter how much salt your brother puts in your water, he is still your brother and five minutes later, everything is right as rain and you can hang out in the garage together drinking non-alcoholic "children's lager". 

Here is the first half of the first episode. Watch watch! Enjoy. There are only six episodes, easy to demolish in  one sitting.


18: The Same Outfit I Keep Wearing Over and Over

Leather Shorts: Club Monaco Fruffy Shirt: Garage Sale Bag: Joe Fresh

I love this shirt, it fruffs out in the back as though I have tails and it's lacey and it loves me. I should have taken better photos. 

Mostly I have just been taking lots of photos of food. 

This was my forray into the raw vegan gluten free food world. I got so nauseous I thought I was going to throw up all over The Order of the Phoenix. My word. It tasted about as good as it looks in this next picture when I mixed it all up. 


Frozen yogurt is far more enjoyable. Now I still have 2.5 more Harry Potters to read before Thursday Midnight. 


17: The Hills and Heels

Recently it dawned on me that I have never watched season six of the Hills, even though I have watched every other season and Laguna Beach*. I have an appreciation for all types of television programming. And so I present, 

Choice Season Six Hills Quotes:

Heidi: Come on, all guys are a little bit controlling. 

This is her referring to Spencer as a little bit controlling. Key words: a little and also bit. It is followed by this.

Spencer: I don't let her watch TV or go on computers. The only thing Heidi does is read and write poetry and pet puppies and read books so that she is logged out of the matrix.

I liked that "read" was repeated twice in order to super convince me that Heidi is literate and loving it. 

Audrina: That's Justin's band.
Steph: Justin's in a band?
Lo: I thought that was always a joke.

It really is incredible difficult to determine what about Justin Bobby is sincere. 

Justin Bobby: That can be never good.

See? Poetry!

I also wanted to quote Audrina during her break-ups, but she doesn't really say words. She just uncomfortably avoids eye contact with her boyfriend until he realizes they've broken up, but I've never really figured out how they realize that. 

Steph: Could I get a Pepsi

Josh: Sprite. So you don’t drink?
Steph: How did you know?
Josh: You didn’t order a drink.

I love Stephanie. She and Lo are my favourites. 

Steph: I’m not seeing anyone else. Are you?
Josh: I’m not.
Steph: Do you wanna not see anyone else?
Josh: (smile) No
Steph: Okay, you are very rare.
Josh: I think we’re both pretty rare.
(They kiss)

No! You used a negative! He replied in the negative! That did not mean what you think it means! 

And finally

Kristin: I'm moving to Europe.

Europe is quite large. I think you should stop packing and get a little bit more specific with your plans first.

*That's right, I'm the reason all the MTV programming is successful. Me and people like me watching the Hills and the Hills after show, but if I'm gonna watch some entertaining badly scripted television I will always choose reality TV over Chuck Lorre.

Oh boy. This can only be amazing. And now for something completely different, have a picture of my dinosaur shoes.
