My Lazy Halloween

I didn't dress up for Halloween.  I didn't go to any parties, and I definitely didn't go trick-or-treating (though I would've happily given trick-or-treaters some candy had they come to my door).  All I did was watch Quarantine with my roommate Katie, and buy chocolate with the money Mom and Dad sent me, which was what it was specifically for.  And I don't feel bad about my lack of participation at all.  You know why?

Because I'm totally going to be Hermione Granger for the midnight showing of Harry Potter on the 19th!  Woohoo!

Part one of the end begins soon!!!

So, I officially feel like I've experienced having college roommates.  Jumping around as we sing Britney Spears, gushing about Katie's boy-o...

Okay, so that's all.  But It's still official.

I'm HAPPY, okay?!  :)

Utah-Fried Chicken and Potatoes

Okay, so it doesn't look very appetizing, but it was actually really good!

The chicken definitely turned out much better than the potatoes, but my wedges were just fine with a bit of ketchup.  Next time, I'm going to use a LOT more salt, and I want to figure out how to make them crunchy.

I didn't take pictures of myself frying them because I was a little busy making sure I wasn't frying my fingers.  Haha.  It's harder than it seems.  It was a lot of fun, though, and totally worth it.  Yummm.  Downsides: made the entire apartment smell like smoke, and the grease was super hard to clean off the stove and surrounding surfaces.

Worth it?  Yes.  Most definitely.

A very poorly documented activity from my live list.

The other day, I met a guy named Dallas.  Intrigued, I asked him if he was from Texas.  He gave me a funny look (though not rudely) and said no, he was from California.  We then launched into a conversation about names and how often he gets asked that question...

The same day, I met a guy named Austin.  Instinctively, I asked him if he was from Texas.  He looked at me like I was an idiot (rudely this time) and said, "No!" like it was an insult.  But, you know, I actually had a good reason for asking him.  He was wearing a Texas A&M shirt.  When I pointed that out, he said his cousin went there... as if it were the most obvious thing in the world.

People with names like that should expect to be asked that at least every once in a while.  And if they are, they really shouldn't act like I'm an idiot for asking.

Oh, but it totally makes since that they were named after Texas cities. They were both from California.  They were too white to be Angeles or Diego.  Obviously, their mothers just didn't want to name the Sacramento.

Gianna Jessen: Abortion Survivor

This video is very worth the sixteen minutes you'll spend watching it.
