Another Year, Another Wig

Last night we celebrated my birthday here in Urbana. Keeping in tradition, I, of course, wore a wig. It was a pretty epic night. Sarah got her nipples tweaked while dancing on a stage. We played Penny Can, watched Weekend at Bernie's 2, danced on poles and dropped it real low. My actual birthday has a lot to live up to now. Though, I doubt it will involve as much glitter (sadly).

Chace Crawford: Gayer Than You Think

When it came to Gossip Girl I was always more of a Chuck Bass fan myself, but after seeing his fine ass in person and then watching my new favorite horrible movie Twelve I've gotten pretty into Chace Crawford. Though, not as into him as I was when he was slated to star in a Footloose remake. Him backing out of that gave me major blue balls. Its not even funny. But long story short: I developed a little crush on Chace and that crush has grown into full-fledged love after doing a Google search and seeing just how flippin' gay he is! It kind of has me speechless so I'm going to allow the photos to speak for themselves:
He's giving head to a beer bottle for chrissakes! And you know who Baby Chace reminds me of? My #1 fake gay: Jensen Ackles! It's no secret that Jensen and co-star Jared Padelecki can't keep their homoerotic chemistry in check either on-or-off set and the same goes for Chace and his former roommate and BFF Chuck Bass.
Plus, both Jensen and Chace did sensitive cowboy photoshoots in their past. Drool!
Also, no straight man who isn't Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone or Chris Kirkpatrick should have this many pictures with JC Chasez.
Case closed.

I Need A Drummer Boy (And Other Music Videos)

The other day I was explaining how I have a weakness for pop songs infused with marching band beats or any sort of drumline action. Then today Sarah posted an absurd music video on my wall that featured a drumline (or as we like to think of it, a tribute to Drumline) which got me in the mood for a marching music vid marathon. I have decided to share the highlights with you loyal readers in the hopes that maybe after this I won't be the only one with a pop-march fetish. (Note: I only included ones that allowed me to embed videos. That meant the sacrifice of such beauties like Trick Daddy's "Shut Up.")

The One That Started It All
This is the video Sarah showed me that inspired this post. It's fabulously idiotic. Needless to say, I'm obsessed with it from start to finish. Why are they nurses? Why are they in a fake Target? So many questions and frankly, I don't care if I ever get the answers.

The Classic
This song was so overplayed the year it came out I'm still a little tired of it. Though, I did totally forget about all the amusing costumes (racing jumpsuit!), Pharrell, and how fucking awkward her strut is which made this trip down memory lane pretty damn enjoyable.

The Wannabe Slutty One
I'm sure it's no surprise that my favorite of all these drum songs is a slutty one — even though the poor girl really sucks at being slutty. The fabulous outfits and hilarious dancing more than make up for it though.

The Really Slutty One
I just don't even have words for this one except these bitches put Alesha to shame.

The One I Totally Forgot About
I love me some Destiny's Child (I think that's kind of assumed). But unless I'm listening to my Get Slutty playlist I totally forget about "Lose My Breath." It just sort of gets lost in the muddle of "Say My Name," "Jumpin Jumpin," "Bug A Boo" and all that. I don't know how I ever forgot about this video though. The whole weird doppleganger battle is fucking awesome along with their (slightly confusing) outfits.

The One From That Movie I Never Saw
There is seriously nothing better than Outkast when you're stoned and this was song was my fucking summer chill jam a couple years ago. I had never seen the video before though and that is a shame because this shit is trippy as all hell. I feel high just watching it right now.

The One From That Movie I've Seen Multiple Times
I'm kind of obsessed with Stick It. Really, I just love anything about gymnastics or figure skating. Those are the only sports I give a shit about (unless you count the Dillon Panthers and East Dillon Lions). I'm just stoked that Missy Elliot made such a badass theme song for the greatest (and only) movie I ever dipped out of school early to see on opening day. (Though I did get invited to skip school with a bunch of my friends the day Ray came out.)

And while we're talking about music videos I just have to add in my new obsession. This one is also thanks to the forever inappropriate Sarah. Even if you didn't watch a single one of the videos I just posted, watch this one. It's my new anthem.

New Year, New Love

I've made a lot of mistakes in the past month. A lot. In fact, today I swore off drinking after last night's train wreck. (Though, we all know that won't last long.) But in these past few weeks I have made one of the greatest decisions of my life:

I started watching Parks and Recreation.

I started yesterday afternoon and I'm now almost finished with Season 2. But while the show is hilarious, the real reason I can't stop watching is my new boyfriend Chris Pratt.

I developed a minor crush on Chris way back in the day when he was on Everwood. He kept me watching that b.s. for far too long. It was kind of ridiculous. He also had the same affect on me and The O.C. Season 4. I watched almost half of that shit show because of his fine, bearded Brown student self.

But Parks and Rec has been such a game changer for me. It's so great to be able to enjoy watching Chris Pratt and enjoy the show I'm watching at the same time. Plus, he's 6'2", moved to Hawaii with his friends when he was 19 where he was then discovered at a Bubba Gubba Shrimp Company and his nickname is "Monkeyboy."

Can't you already see our embossed wedding invites?

Well, I guess first you'd have to see the divorce announcement for him and Anna Faris. A small price to pay for my happiness though. And frankly, I think it's worth it. I mean, he kind of is my ideal man. He's tall and...um, how do I say this...soft? Comfortable? Like a giant human pillow? Just like Jason Segel but two inches shorter? He also plays guitar and musicians love me. I don't give a crap about music so I don't really know why I only seem to date people who want to do that shit for a living. Mystery!

But to sum it up, we're a match made in heaven.

And yes, this picture happened:
