sign that i need a new car: someone fucking swiped the H symbol off the back of my civic. what exactly does one do with such a treasure? hmm? are these a hot commodity?

the least they could have done was gone into the car and stolen my ipod that i’d left in there…or my baseball glove…or my library books…or my paperwork for my new health card and my new license that i NEED to get done before i turn 30 on the 22nd (so. not. happening)

oh, and ps…why doesn’t the civic have cup holders that actually, i don’t know, WORK? i shouldn’t have to hold my coffee cup in the morning for fear that it will spill every time i turn a corner. just saying.

sign that my mother might know how to read a blog…or she’s just the patron saint of good timing: “Ali…do you remember that hoodie (she used the word hoodie! could you die?) that i brought for you when i came to visit in October?” um, that would be this one right here…

that i posted. yesterday. “Well, did you know that they sell those at Macy’s?” (no, i didn’t) “Do you want me to pick up a couple for you?” (yes, i do)

sign that my sister is the most amazing person in the world: for my birthday, she wants to fly me to NYC for the weekend. just like that. she really is my favorite, and i promise it’s not because she gives me free trips. we are alike in ridiculous ways, even down to our travel toothbrushes. same make, same color. we are the same person, even though we look like strangers.

sign that Shane may have acted for the first time in her life: “Oh, Matt! Matt! oh, Matt! I’m going to faint! You picked me! Oh, Matt! i. love. you. oh, camera, are you getting my best angles?! Matt, when you kiss me..make sure you only move your bottom lip”

can someone PLEASE tell me why i still watch this garbage? i could be spending my time watching season 1 of How I Met Your Mother. I’d had it downloaded for months and just haven’t had the time to watch it. and i’m still trying to work on Resolution #11. the good news is that i’ve now seen all the Bournes. and all the Die Hards. and the first half of the first Lethal Weapon. so, that’s something, right? anyone want to lend me a copy of Braveheart??

sign that i actually am a girl: sure, i like sports. football. basketball. hockey. and sure, i like even play softball. and sure, i like video games (grand theft auto IV is pretty fucking awesome…and MarioKart for the wii. sweet!). and i like movies where people die from getting shot more than i like movies where people die from a lengthy disease. and i drink BEER. lots of it. and i like sex. lots of it. and i’m typically considered one of the guys. BUT, lately i have been coveting THESE:

i want a pair of HOT PINK sandals for the summer. i’m seeing them everywhere. and i’m drooling. and i NEED them.

**am i the only one who knows this song? please tell me i’m not.

and don’t forget to enter my DVD give-away contest over at Juice this week! all you have to do is register with UrbanMoms and tell me your favorite Bob Dylan song!!

  1. You’re not the only one that knows the song. Now it’s going to be stuck in my head all day! They’ve been playing that song a LOT lately on one of the local radio stations.

    …do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign? (and generally speaking I think the answer is “no” people cannot read the sign..)

  2. I knew he was picking Shane, at like, the final 8 or so.

    My old car’s cupholders were strategically placed so that when in use, you could not control the temperature of the vehicle. At all.

    And no, you’re not the only one to know that song, although most people probably associate it with Tesla and not Five Man Electrical Band.

  3. Of course I know the song. Of coure I was actually ALIVE when the song was popular.

    Honda has gotten it right in the Odyssey. My minivan has 17…count them, we did..cup holders. Adjustable ones so you never have to worry about spillage.

    Yet, I STILL have water bottles rolling around on the floor!

  4. That song was stuck in my head as soon as I opened the page! So yes, I know it and thanks a lot! And Mario Kart for the Wii is AWESOME. Oh, and my sister’s Civic had it’s “H” stolen too…apprently they are quite the collector’s item. I will be keeping an eye on my own “H”!

    Comment by Joscelyn on May 13, 2008
  5. I know that song, too. My oldest daughter’s birthday is the 22nd as well. And I want to win the Bob Dylan movie, so stop telling people about the contest! You’re just reducing the chances of someone who has NEVER EVER WON a random drawing thing in her life. I figured with four comments (last I checked) and four copies to give away, I at least had a fighting chance. Why do you want to ruin that for me? 😉

  6. OK- I feel horrible about this. When I was 15 it was “cool” to steal car symbols. I “may” just have a H for you… but it will be form a 1993 model.

  8. Of course I know that song ! It was on Sesame Street all the time when I was little 🙂 And therefore when you were little too. But maybe not on American Sesame Street ? It’s true that you and your sister don’t look alike. However, in that picture, she looks like Isabella ! Lucky you, getting to go to NYC 🙂

  9. Shayne didn’t actually say all that, did she?

    And, it was NOT garbage! it was awesome! Don’t insult me!! 😉

  11. Ooh, How I Met Your Mother. Love it! Did you watch it last night? Was it me or did Britney seem like some weird zombie-esque version of her former self?

    Comment by andi on May 13, 2008
  12. I’d skip Braveheart, but that’s just me. It’s too long and not really that great. I love, How I met your mother, but my new favorite is The Big Bang Theory. Cracks me up every time.

    The shoes are purty, but they look painful. Now the hoodie, I’d like to steal that one from you. Luv it.

  13. Shane is an awesome actress. I totally felt the love between them…

    I had to rewatch the ending three times, to count how many times she glanced at the camera.

  14. i missed the bachelor finale…so i’m dying to know…how many times DID she look at the camera??

  15. Those are adorable shoes. Just because we love all that stuff like beer and sex doesn’t mean we cant look hot doing it!!!!

  18. I wonder what people do with the little H. That’s just weird. And totally sucky.

    Comment by Karly on May 13, 2008
  19. My husband would be jealous of the Grand Theft Auto. He bought a copy of it for our PS3, played it once then our 9 year old son found it and told him that it was a violent game and he shouldnt have it. Feeling guilty, he got rid of the game. He sold it to one of the woman in his office.

  22. You definitely should have watched How I Met Your Mother. I love that show. And the H swiping. Well, the first initial of my last name starts with an H, but it wasn’t me.

  24. Kind of reminds me of when my ’96 Civic was broken into in…199…7? Moron took my airbag and the 6-CD changer from the trunk of my car. I guess in Sacramento, there was a hot black market for those items.

    Nevertheless, I hope the perp enjoyed the Donna Summer and ABBA CDs.

    Awww, and I love you too Mohnkey.

  30. OK – you and your sis – the eyes… I see it.

    Them thar shoes- I can’t breathe for all the panting and drooling…

    And the Bach pick – ugh. I thought the same thing. I thought, “When that girl hears how dumb she sounds… I am so embarrassed for her.” I can’t believe I even watched it!

    That is just plain WIERD about your mom knowing you were craving a hoodie!! AND KNOWING IT’S EVEN CALLED A HOODIE?! FREAKY stuff there!

  35. No, I know that song. When I saw it in CommentLuv when you commented on my site I had it in my head all day.

    Shayne SUCKS! They so aren’t together. I mean, they aren’t even doing an After The Final Rose episode. And TMZ reported that Matt was hitting on a TMZ staffer about a month ago.

  37. Hahahaha, I, too, continue to watch the Bachelor obsessively. It’s really sad actually. Are you watching the Bachelorette, as well? Despite the fact that I detest DEE-AHHHNA, I still watch that, as well.

    Though I must tell you: GO WATCH HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. NOW! Best sitcom since Friends.

    But back to the Bachelor…lucky for us both, we can waste even more hours of our lives this summer, as VH1 is airing the ENTIRE SERIES, all seasons, starting in June. I just ruined your summer, no?
