FOR THE RECORD: I was a nerd with my science degree. (But come on. Math students are such primadonnas.) The college was situated near some of the best rock climbing in the world; as soon as class was over, we'd hop in my crappy Buick2 (every college student should have a crappy car - and learn how to FIX IT. I rebuilt a Buick1 from the ground up, I thank you: '64 Special, bad ass hooptie) and hit the mountains. Sometimes we'd hook our gear up outside the dorm and climb up the walls and rapel down before security would come.
We had "theme" days (hey - it was a Mormon school - unofficially, ALL schools in Utah are Mormon - so there wasn't any drinking and screwing) where we'd dress up in costumes. And go to class. OF COURSE you would wear a leopard print catsuit with a blonde fro to Calculus. Didn't everyone? We roller skated every Saturday night, huge groups of 18-25 year olds dressed in fly 70s gear, skating to the hits. Good times. I still feel great shame at the boys I chose to date in college - it was SLIM PICKIN'S ladies. Very slim.
We would also make trips into Colorado City (Short Creek, aka the town Juniper Creek of Big love is based on) and boggle at the Plygs. Until they'd escort us out, of course. I taught Sunday School while in college. Can you believe that? CHURCH. In COLLEGE. And I went to church classes every school day, too! What the hell? Good, clean fun. Er... yeah. This was where I met the BFF - we were set up by a teacher, heeeee! We still laugh at that. This was where I got to be away from my family, be myself, figure out who I was, and got a nickname that wasn't insulting (um... my family? They could be assholes.) Oh, my nickname was Tex. :)
Screw high school as the "best time of your youth." It was college for me. [/wistful] (Even though I was surrounded by some of the biggest weirdoes imaginable. I've told y'all about the girl that lived down the hall that got married after two dates, had her FIRST KISS at the altar, and called her mom crying the night of her honeymoon because her husband wanted "to do something disgusting" to her? And her mother sobbed and said she had hoped this man would be different? HOLY DIRTY PILLOWS, CARRIE.)
In other words, I'm going to Staples to buy school supplies today. \o/ Check out these awesome Bento boxes for kids' lunches!! (I'm harsh and cruel and make my children eat heathfully - no packaged foods.)
Yesterday I was fitted for my costume - oh holy night, I was cracking the hell up. The SHOES!! Clear heels (of course) with a braided jelly strap across the toes - clear, with multi-colored shimmers inside. One of the tank tops belonging to my character reads: Back Door Bitch. *laughs and laughs* The one I'm wearing is bedazzled and eventually will have silver stars on the boobs. I need to get a leopard print bra today so it can poke out of my top. CLASSY!! (Oh, the SHORTS! moosesal? They're Britney-short. The pockets hanging out from underneath? Except there's classy black lace sewn on the hems. \o/ I'm a leetle nervous about my whole leg being exposed. I mean, my WHOLE leg. On a freaking movie screen. I'm doing leg lifts like a mo fo. (And if this was human, this is about the look we're going for.)
Finally, a very important and SCIENTIFIC POLL, which your answers are very much needed to solve world hunger. Or malaria. SOMETHING.
