I write about dead people for a living. My favorite wine is wine. I don't take things too seriously to make up for those who do. andreadisaster.com
I usually love flashy, over-the-top movies and like someone above, I adore the '20s, but three words sum this up for me: Just too much.
@Dusk I do love fireworks.
@janiebee Yeeeep. I usually celebrate it a week before when no one's busy or out of town. Half the people I know think my bday is the 3rd, the other half the 7th (but NOT the 6th... odd numbers, maybe?). When I was eight or so, I picked a fake birthday in March just because I wished I had a different day.
@janiebee My entire life- not exaggerating!- people have told me how much cooler it'd be if I was born on the 4th, like I had control over that. I said something about it to my mom once as a teenager ("Too bad I wasn't born on the 4th of July."). She then told me the story of how she got to pick when she was induced with me (I was still in the oven more than a week past the due date) and she purposefully didn't choose the 4th because she wanted me to have a day all to myself. And I still feel terrible.
Back when it was super popular to message strangers on AIM, I would tell people that my birthday was July 4 when it's actually July 5. I loved getting away with THE DUMBEST LIE IN THE WORLD.
And the only time I ever gave a fake name was on the ET ride at Universal Studios.
@i make lists Mmm, yes, I second this.
@WhiskeySour The texture is what gets me too. I want to like them, but blah.
Yayyy Nicole! Fantastic news!
@dj pomegranate OH YES, NO ONE UNDERSTOOD ME, so I say. I also had about half a journal worth of UGH I'M SO FAT THIN GIRLS GET EVERYTHING. And as much as I want to rip apart my younger self, that part made me a little sad.
@Veronica Mars is smarter than me I found my 8th grade journal last night and it was just page after page of MY LIFE IS SO HARD WHY DONT HAVE A BOYFRIEND EVERYONE HATES ME. Five minutes with my 13-year-old self was more than enough.*
*Not that all 13 year olds are as insufferable as I was!
