Variety Is The Spice Of Life

This week, I am vacationing in Park City, UT. Today was my first day at the mountain and my friend Tori and I decided to venture off on our own. Being that it is the week after Christmas, the lines for the chair lifts were a real bitch. We decided that the two of us would just take the single's lane in order to get up the mountain in a more timely manner. My first trip up the mountain I was paired up with a group of men that I would estimate to be about twenty five years old. As the lift operator matched me up with them he said "You may not want to go with these guys". They were straggly and unkempt, but they looked like a good time which was reason enough for me not to listen to the man's advice. As soon as we took off the men started joking around with me asking if I was scared of them. I said no and just laughed as they ripped on the lift operator. Things got quiet for a while and I was staring at the beautiful sights that Utah has to offer. To break the short lived silence, the guy next to me turns to me and says: "Chairlifts are for smoking weed, you want us to bust out a J and you can have a hit?!" I respectfully declined, it's really not my thing. But, I really found so much humor in those men. For the rest of the day I chose to only use the single's lane. I figure there are plenty more characters to be found at this busy ski resort. Sometimes I sat quietly and just noted the behavior of the people sitting beside me. Other times I interacted with them, asked them questions, and made stupid comments. I observed plenty of personalities over the span of my day. There were several stereotypes such as: the bitch, the overprotective mom, the bratty kid, the couple that has no shame in displaying massive amounts of PDA, etc. Even when we met up with my brother, his friend, and my parents, I insisted on taking the single's lane while they stuck together on the lift. As much as I love spending time with the people who I came on this trip with, I can sit around with them any day of the week. It is not every day that I get to hang out with such a diverse crowd and for today that provided a certain level of entertainment as I froze my ass off sitting on the lifts.

October was awesome. November sucked. December's looking up.

All We Want

All we want is sheer perfection
We act like all our needs must be met
We beg and plead for true affection
We're never pleased with what we get

All we want is attention
We all want to feel loved
We cry out for a simple reaction
We all want to be thought of

We can't always get what we want, that's the fact
But it doesn't stop us from looking back
We desire the things we had, but lost
We all want to be happy at any cost

We're all desperate to fulfill what we need
We demonstrate hypocrisy, we demonstrate greed
All we want, is we want it all
No matter how big, nor how small
The confliction in our minds is always a task
We want what we want, we want it when we want it
So tell me now, Is it all too much to ask?

As I explained in my earlier post, Friday was the much anticipated day of worship for the one and only Lady GaGa. With a leotard, fishnets, and a lighting bolt plastered across my face, life was good as I entered a party populated with people who just didn't get the memo on the GaGa dress code. That's right, it was not a themed party. We brought the theme. Pure and utter craziness ensued once we walked in and surprised the partygoers that night. It was a night of ridiculousness as I predicted and it couldn't have been too much better in the end.
As for Saturday, my night consisted of being with the people I really do LOVE. That includes the friends and family who attended my parents' annual Christmas extravaganza. Any time that I can enjoy a Corona and lime with my Pop Pop and my best friends in the same room is quite a good time in my eyes.
To put the icing on the delicious cake that I would like to call my weekend, school was cancelled for today! That's right, a snow day! Life doesn't get too much better than it is right now. An amazing weekend! Parlor Mob is in two days! Christmas is in four days! I will be heading out to Utah in six! Hmm.. How do you like them apples?

Happy Holiday!

Tomorrow is National Lady GaGa day according to the FaceBook invitation that I recieved a couple of weeks back. I was reminded of this by a notification yesterday. Needless to say, I am pumped. I have every intention of going all out! Coincidentally, my school has a dress down day scheduled for tomorrow. It is Christmas themed and we are required to wear either red or green. Think the Catholic School community would mind if I sported one of her red or green looks? Here are my options.

Peace, dood.

I have just about had it with this peace sign thing. You are not a hippy. I assure you that the losers who decide to cover themselves with this symbol have not burnt their bras or "made love, not war" in the back of a Volks Wagon bus. Those were the people who defined female empowerment. Think about this the next time you see a teenybopper sporting a "PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS" tee. Give me a break. Trip on some acid and then we'll talk.
