Don't Delete Me Bro!

Facebook really sucks! THERE.... I said it! Here's the thing: I miss anonymity! There is no longer a question of what your friend, your ex or even you great-aunt Helen over in Kansas is doing. You know who they're talking to, what they're doing, hell... you even know WHO they're doing! I'm tired of knowing it all! I've been forced to hide, block and delete the people who give too much information! No longer do you need to call your friends after work; You already know their whole day and life!

I miss the days of ringing doorbells. Now it's a text saying "Hey, I'm outside!" How about the days of snail mail? Romance is gone! The only letters you get are spam! Barely, will your crush call let alone send a letter. Usually it's a text saying "How was your day, babe?" Really, communication is out of control. I realize that I'm a communications major (and I love to communicate!) but what the hell is wrong with this world! I'd give up texting/blackberry messaging/e-mailing/instant messaging in exchange for some intimacy! Send me a letter or just show up! I miss 1999. Sure, some people had beepers but I didn't! (Not a fan of touching the nasty 7-11 payphone!) Text messaging didn't even exist! People wrote letters/notes to their hunnies! Where the F is that time machine!?!?

Snow Hunny,Tom Terd, Man Boobs...How Nice!

"Taylor Valentine?" says the lady at the front desk, "Someone has been waiting for you since 7am!" I'm a little scared and slightly intrigued since I don't know anyone at Jay peak! Needless to say, we ran over to the mart for the first of 3338383 beers to wait on my mystery man/roommate. I realllllly wish I had never found him because he turned out to be a creep! I didn't believe a thing he said about his life. He wasn't a marine or a train conductor. I'm pretty sure he used to be in jail and probably plays with toy trains and barbies! He kept telling us "I'm an insomniac, I don't ever sleep!" Well, after "injuring" his rib on the second day, my silly friends pointed out that "all he did was sleep/snore on the floor!" Anyway, he really sucked and the last 2 days were creep-free.

Our "modern" condo was hilarious. All 3 TVs were wood-sided with knobs and antennas! The TV in my room had a built in radio. We only had 13 channels AND no remote! WTF? I'm American and lazy; I don't get up to change channels! Hence why I watched 37 episodes of full house. I also loved the cassette player and the "surround sound" (aka 2 giant speakers, on shelves, on either side of the couch.) The BEST part of the whole condo had to be the mirrors on the ceiling of my room. I really hope those sheets were cleaned before we got into that whoopee-makin' bed!

I spent more time in the hot tub then I did on the mountain! LOL I love boarding but I love being warm and not to mention checking out my snow hunny 1/2 naked doesn't hurt either! ;)

I did go bikini snowboarding. Although, when I woke up that day , I was wishing I could have backed out of it! Unfortunately, the night before I was drunken nerd and told the world to come see my white ass heading down the mountain! The whole week is was 35-40 degrees and OF COURSE, on bikini day, it was 19 at the peak! I lasted just 3 minuties with nothing but the bikini on and almost 20 minutes (allllll the way down) with just my coat on. I have never been so cold in my life. I couldn't feel my legs for like 12 hours after the bikini run! I don't know what the hell I was thinking! People kept asking me "are you wasted or high?" And NO I wasn't either of those; I was just dumb!

There was also Tom "Terd!" He was the biggest creep ever! He claimed to be 35 but he was more like 55. He was the guy running this trip and offered to give us a ride to the hot tub. As we were pulling out of the parking lot he says "I know the hot tub is left but I just want to show you something real quick." I'm thinking " OH MY GOD...We're all going to die!" He was driving like a maniac down snowy, mountain roads and took us to a parking lot. He then proceeded to do donuts in the snow. The other girls didn't seem to mind this but I started to cry/have a panic attack. I was in a pretty shitty, multiple car accident just a few months ago so, I have a bit of post traumatic stress disorder. I told him this and kept begging for him to let me out; I would rather walk! Anyway, we survived but I hated the terd at this point. He decided to join as in the hot tub in only his tighty blackies underwear! GROSSSSS! I labeled him MAN BOOBS and hoped never to see his stupid face again!

Overall, I'm pretty bummed to be home!!! I miss being in the snow everyday and of course, my snow hunny! :(

I Don't Do Coke!

It was 9:45PM and I had just gotten comfy in bed... Reading a book. I'm not one for wearing a lot of pj's to bed (it's 38383 degrees in my apartment) so, when I hear knocking at my door...I'm scrambling to find pants as not to scare the mystery knocker! I know it's my friendly neighbor, mark, because he is yelling and banging on the door "Taylor, Hey...It's Mark." Apparently, I was not quick enough to answer. So, what does he want? He would like to know if I'd like a 12 pack of soda. I find this odd and ever odder that it's 10pm and he's asking if I want regular or diet. Needless to say, I didn't take any. AND it's not because I don't like soda. In fact, I LOVE soda but I spent 3 hours and MANY days of pain, getting my teeth whitened. There is NO WAY in hell, I'm losing these white chompers to the yellow tinge of cola!

Anyway, another note on my lovely neighbor. He is always quite friendly and I like him. One day he knocked on my door and I'm thinking he might ask to borrow the usual "cup of sugar" but he wanted a flash light! I just find it funny because when I said "Mark, you owe me a cup of sugar now," he said "Well, I don't have sugar but I have muscles!" I'm not quite sure how to take that comment.

Wine & Me: Perfect Together!

It might be a sad day when you are busting open the BIG bottle of wine...By yourself...on a Thursday night but I don't care that day is today! It's not like today was horrible; maybe life has been horrible lately. It all started when I was eating dinner and flipping through the Victoria Secret catalog. Seems normal, Right? EXCEPT, I'm contemplating buying some lingerie. UM, HELLLLOOOO Taylor? You're single and alone...Who the hell are you buying this for? So then , I started feeling sad and busted open the wine! AND here we are. It's 7:58 and I'm blogging about my life.

I've been feeling crazy tired lately. So tired that after 12 hours of sleep, I still can't open my eyes. I'm thinking I'm 1 of 3 things: Depressed, getting sick or knocked up. The first 2 are OK, I guess. The 3rd makes me want to vomit. SO, I'm wishing for a sign that it's either 1 or 2 because what else could it be?

The dishes in the sink overwhelm me. It's not fair that I have to cook and wash the dishes too! But really, who the hell am I complaining too? This is reality and when you live alone...You either cook or eat fast food. Since I have a fear of love handles, I'm gonna go with cooking. A cheeseburger would be nice though. :(
