my life is average

some of you diligent readers might have noticed the 'my life is average' link at the end of my blog. i'd forgotten about it until today, and just wanted to share some of my favorite entries i just read. i know...this does not excuse me from writing the posts scribed on my 'to post' list. i'm still getting there.
the first one is for you, brooke::
Today I was riding the train to school and a large man in his late twenties walked on carrying the third Twilight book. About three people snickered as he sat down and started reading so he looked up and said "I'm only reading this so that my sister will read Harry Potter. We made a bet." I applaud his sacrifice.

This morning I called Pizza Hut and asked if they recommended Papa Johns. They said Papa Johns was excellent and gave me their number. MLIA.

Today I slipped on a banana peel in the middle of the hallway and did a classic cartoon fall. I heard someone laughing and looked up to see my principal. He filmed it on his camera phone and it's already posted on youtube. I got up and gave him the most epic high five ever. MLIA

Today, I finally decided to returning pokes I'd gotten months ago from friends. Why? Because I recently set my Facebook to pirate, and it no longer says "Poke back", but "Fire Away!". Somehow, that's infinitely more exciting. MLIA

Today, I read an MLIA about putting two marshmellows in your mouth, and it being a choking hazard. Naturally I tried it out. With mini-marshmellows. I felt like I was beating the system. MLIA

Today, I applied a PUSH BUTTON TO REBOOT UNIVERSE sticker to a crosswalk button. Then I spent an inordinate amount of time observing people hesitate before they pushed the button. An afternoon well spent. MLIA


being average is so entertaining sometimes. what are your favorites?

In short...this is awesome.

I actually know someone who doens't like Harry Potter is only reading it because she made a deal with her hubbs that if she read the books, he would stop bitting his nails. Awesome.

Ah Twilight...how I love thee and loathe thee at the same time. :D

I will have to check out this My Life Is Average that you describe...it sounds fascinating and addicting!

Oops! I think I just pressed that button. Umm... I hope the universe really doesn't reboot. Hmm... Maybe it rebooted someone else's universe...

Anyway. I love you posts. Can't wait to see what else is coming! I'm really excited for it.

ps. I only removed the previous comment because there was a ridiculous typo and I was sorely embarrassed by it.
