Songs That Almost Made It
I was the first one to have the Minnesota outline tattoo. The first. I swear.
The Minnesota state outline
What a super-duper way to represent your Minnesota pride! It’s tasteful and inoffensive, plus it won’t hurt or cost too much because it’s hardly a tattoo. However, be warned: this is soooo yesterday. At least four people in your Uptown apartment complex have…
Mafia Wars or Farmville
Name: Lynn, age 47, Part time administrative assistant, Mary Kay sales person
Your Life: You like to eat Doritos while watching The Biggest Loser and other shows about fat people getting skinny. You also really love Bejeweled and often lose track of time while playing one of these games on Friday nights, causing you to miss whatever plans you didn’t actually have. You don’t really care though because you’re wearing that white, hoodless sweatshirt with a picture of kittens playing in a basket. Ha ha, gee wiz, that sweatshirt is just the best.
Name: Chloe, age 14 and a half, High school freshman, 3.67 GPA, 3rd chair french horn in orchestra
Your Life: One time your cousin asked you if you wanted to smoke weed and you blushed, put your hand (in the shape of an “L”) up to your forehead, and ran to your room so you could journal about how hard it is growing into a strong, independent, drug-free woman. The Sims makes you feel in control and productive. However, you also blush when your Sims make out.
Nike + GPS or any other fitness tracking app
Name: Nathan, not Nate, age 28, Account Exec. at a small yet profitable local advertising agency
Your Life: Right now you’re super busy training for your 3rd Ironman in as many years. Marathons just weren’t a challenge anymore. You have an automatic car starter, you say “Bullshit” a lot, and you’re in between girlfriends at the moment because all girls are crazy.
Scrabble or Words with Friends
Name: Christofer (with an F), age 23, Bartender, drummer/founding member of a band called “That One Time”
Your Life: You snagged a four-year degree from a private liberal arts college on the East Coast, but you decided to follow your musical calling. You’re mom is pissed about it, and you’re a little embarrassed when you see high school classmates at the bar, but, to be fair, you majored in art history, so you weren’t really being serious about it anyway. You like playing Facebook Scrabble with your 9-to-5 friends because you feel super validated winning against someone who regularly submits themselves to The Man. You’re much free-er than they are.
I just realized that Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 was at the same Twins game as me last night. My 7th-9th grade self just rolled her eyes back into her skull, peed herself and fainted. She now lies frothy-mouthed, convulsing on the ground with sheer joy.

In reference to my annoying french horn parts when playing in Family Band, a twice annual familial music group formed by all my cousins, aunts/uncles, sisters, parents, and Grandpa on the tuba. We play Christmas carols in Dec. and Sousa marches in July. We suck.
P - #PizzaLuceBlockParty
Little did I know that the cool kids were tweeting sans the “pizza” at #LuceBlockParty.
Q - #QuestionablePoopLikeStainOnSidewalk
Outside the CVS in Midway. Don’t know why I was surprised, being that I was at the Midway CVS and all.

Apparently I was pretty stoked to see my striped friends at the Como Zoo.
I was surprised to see so much Ivy-league-indie-music-influence when I opened a sale e-mail from J.Crew this morning. I call it Vamp Crew, which, coincidentally, is also the name of a new teen novel series I’m writing about mythological creatures in lust. Oh wait… that’s been done? Shiiiiiit.
We were also a little drunk and took approx 37 photos for our “future album cover” in the bathroom. We decided on this one because it says “We’re funny and sorta pretty and we’ll surprise you with our levels of ROCK.” P.S. None of us can play an instrument. Actually, I was 2nd chair french horn in high school, so…
My tweets will tell you absolutely nothing about how the show was. Read them if you so choose.
