Writer's Block Activity

Ok, so today I'm playing catch-up and haven't done much in the way of posting. Instead, I stole this from Amy (thanks, Amy!).

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don’t speak often or don’t really know each other) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you’re finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON’T ACTUALLY remember about you!

Please don’t make me look like a loser here…if you read this…even a lurker…do this!!

Oh, my God, Christina, remember the time that we went to that little dive bar? We just wanted to catch up with some girl talk without the boys or the kids...And remember how that really hot guy kept buying you drinks? But you weren't interested in him, because, after all, you have PC? And the only loser who was buying me drinks was the fat guy, mostly bald with only a few greasy strands of black hair "combed over"? How we laughed!!
Except then we were both too drunk to drive and it was too late to call anyone for a ride and we'd spent all our money on cocktails, so we had to fold down the seats and crash in the back of my truck. And in the mornign we were so cold.
GOod times, good times.

Christina - I was thinking the other day and just started cracking up thinking of our time in the army together. Remember when we stole the Humvee and took off into the woods while we were supposed to be setting up the Turkey for the other 98Cs? And how we made a run into Burger King instead of eating the MREs that give everyone constipation? Oooh! And my very favorite was when we crashed the Humvee (nicknamed the Calypso) in the middle of Bicycle Lake in the Middle of the Mohave Desert. A lake in the middle of the freakin' desert! And how you were out of it so fast and on top of the Humvee that your boots weren't even wet and you were smoking a cigarette while I got on the radio and said, "Mayday! Mayday! We're going under!"

Hee. It is a wonder they gave us honorable discharges.

(Incidentally, every incident mentioned is TRUE.)

jeez, i was just thinking about that time you dared me to walk out of REI with the canoe, just walk right and load it on top of your humvee, the one you stole with laura when you two did that stint in the army? and so, ever the wild card, i picked up that yellow one, you remember, the one-seater out of alluminum and i walked through the double doors only i had to sort of drag it and it made no sound at all on the carpet until i was in the parking lot when it made a rather sickening scratching sound along the pavement. but you sprinted out ahead of me and dug around in the back of the humvee for various bungees and we had almost got the thing secured when the manager came racing out to us with his arms overhead and then the cruisers arrived WITH THE LIGHTS BLINKING and the sirens blasting. we didn't have to stay in the cell too long and it's true, it really wasn't as uncomfortable or drab as it looks on TV as you mentioned, and have i ever told you how very good you looked in that mug shot? really. you were having an excellent hair day. i stole a copy and had it framed. shall i send it along?

are you really asking me to tell everyone about the time you and i ripped rick springfield's shirt off of him ON STAGE and you dropped on the floor onto your knees crying "IT'S ME RICK! I'M JESSIE'S GIRL!" and then security pulled you offstage only to have your run back on to rip off his PANTS while you yelled "DR. DRAKE! I NEED MOUTH TO MOUTH!" you crazy girl. like he hadn't heard THAT one before. i mean, i didn't want to bring this up ever again but YOU ASKED ME TO.
