Jaclyn changes her first light bulb, ever.

The end of our semester got pretty chaotic/busy. Michelle told me many times to update this blog, even gave me topics. I slacked. So here’s something you missed:

This big frat guy broke Michelle’s ankle – kind of. The tragedy struck during an intramural soccer game. The sprain swelled up so bad that there’s probably no way I could exaggerate it. It was big. It was purple. Her leg even depleted in muscle mass because this beast of a sprain took forever to heal.

Pobre Michelle

In the mean time, our light bulb in our bathroom went out. No big deal, right? Um, HUGE deal. Our bathroom is as dark as death without the light bulb because there is no window. I went to the dorm security guard because maintenance was closed and asked him for a new light bulb. He had a cardboard box full of light bulbs right behind him but would not lend me one because “management” has to come switch out my light bulb. ASU students are not allowed to change light bulbs on their own, apparently.

So here it is, 9pm and Michelle already has to crutch into the shower, now she’s supposed to do this in the dark?

We didn’t take no for an answer. We changed the light bulb ourselves by switching out the dead bathroom light with the light from Michelle’s desk lamp.

Light bulb!

It was the first time I had ever changed a light bulb, but hold on to your “how many blondes does it take to change a light bulb?” jokes, because I was brunette when said light bulb switch-er-roo occurred.

Let there be liiiiight


Our Dresses Are Famous!!!


Red Lipstick

Nothing says classy like red lipstick. So naturally a quick trip to Walgreen’s turned into a wonderful exploration of all colors red. It was my idea originally, but Jaclyn quickly jumped in. I have purchased at least half a dozen different types of reds in a sad attempt to be fashionable, only to discover I either look like a cholla or a clown. It’s bad. And Anna benefits from my loss. The girl was blessed with a red-friendly skin tone.

So we analyzed and prodded at all the different reds and brands, finding a solution in the Revlon on sale. Of course we ran home and tried it on too. And took pictures for this very blogging reason.

really, red?

Jaclyn’s response to me never going away to summer camp as a kid…

Sexy Phlegm

Well, it finally got me. After a month of avoidance, I got Michelle’s sexy phlegm.

Come to think of it, Michelle is always sick. Or, at least when she gets sick, she is sick FOREVER. Within one week of meeting her, she came down with some kind of laryngitis mixed with whooping cough. You walked in the door of the sixth floor building and knew she was home if you heard a woof-like sound coming from down the hall.

But no worries, I figured it all out.

Mistake Number One: She talks incessant crap about vitamin C. She thinks it gives her “canker sores” in her mouth. Pfft. I grew up in a household where we had vitamin C for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I do not get canker sores. It’s all in her head.

Mistake Number Two: When she’s sick, which is always, she AVOIDS milk. Milk, which gives you strong bones. Milk, which has been scientifically proven to make you skinny. Milk, which I also drink for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She thinks it makes her “stuffy.”

Mistake Number Three: The girl does not sleep.

How are you ever going to get better if you swear off vitamin C, milk and sleep? You won’t. Hence, Michelle.

So, now I’m feeling sick, but at least I have a sexy new rhaspy voice. Mind you, this is not my fault. I took all the proper precautions to avoid this. I think Michelle has been licking the tops of all of our clean cups, like Phoebe did.
