"The One Thing I Hate About Fake Eyelashes is... that They're Not Real..."

So Becks showed me this video the other day:

I DIED of laughter and proceeded to watch most of her other videos....

Here are my favorites!:

...this one is the BEST one... AHAHAHAHAHAHA. I've watched it 5 times and I'm still laughing...

She talks about Harry Potter... enough said!

I am shocked she hasn't gone completely viral since she's been featured on Perez Hilton's fashion blog, Coco Perez... woman is HILARIOUS! The fact that she incorporates make up in her parodies just kills me.

Enjoy :D

"Fave 5" DollyMix Tag + Shop N' Chomp's Give Away

I was surfin' my Google reader and read Dollymix184 aka Holly's new post and she decided to start her own tag. I love reading her blog and seeing her new finds and she's effin gorgeous!

It's basically your 5 tag... haha kinda like your Fave 5!
Rules: "You know when your in a relationship and you have the conversation about which celebrities you'd have on your 'list' of people/celebrities you are 'allowed' to cheat on. Well ladies and/or gents, i'd like to know your 5 people you'd have on your List!!!"

Here's my 5... in no particular order ;):

1. Rob Pattinson
(photo credit: GQ)
Yes, I am one of those girls. You've seen him time and time again on my blog and he was amazing as Cedric and wonderful as Edward. I don't care if he smells... if he doesn't bathe... the man is ruggid and had a wonderful bone structure and amazing eyes. He seems adorable in interviews and laughs at his own jokes. He's a musician. He's simply... a living version of Edward Cullen hahaha! Ok, more like a living look a like to James Dean.

2. Patrick Dempsey
(photo credit: Versace)
He won my heart in "Can't Buy Me Love" as the dorky high school kid that mowed people's lawns... we would have thought that the scrawny kid would become McDreamy?! (Btw, "My Love Don't Cost a Thing" with Nick Cannon and Christina Milian was a bad remake...) He is utterly handsome. He reminds me of a classic definition of handsome. His dark hair... his blue eyes... his scruff... and his role as a doctor on Grey's doesn't hurt either... what can I say? I'm a sucker for a guy in a white lab coat... it's the inner geek in me... Plus, what other man rocks Versace like P.D. does?!

3. James Dean
(photo credit:
Yup. THE James Dean. The teen icon of the 50s. Yeah, he died young. The fame and his youth was his demise, but it doesn't change the impact he had on pop culture. I can't really explain my facination with James Dean... I guess it's also his story that goes along with it...
"Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today." Looks wise... James Franco is one of the closest living looking a likes to J.D.

4. Zac Efron
(photo credit: GQ)
He may be the object of affection/obsession in every tween's heart... but he just so happens to be mine too! I love it when his hair is slicked back and styled like that... if you haven't been able to tell the 50s is my favorite era. He sings, he dances... I remember when his two front teeth had a gap in the show Summerland (which I was obsessed with for like a season cause JMac was in it). He won my heart over as Link from Hairspray... and since then it was OVER and I've been obsessed. He has grown into a FINE young man... I don't care what people say... man is freakin' hot, right down to his abs.

5. Tom Brady
No, I did not join the Pats bandwagon because of Tom Brady... I was a fan of the Pats before I even knew who Tom Brady was... but having him as QB on the team sure does not hurt. The man is good... you can't deny it. He's good looking and he's a good football player... let's just over look the fact that he's got a baby mama and is married to one of the prettiest women...ever. The man's got the All-American rugged look going... MMmmMmm... now that he's back and better then ever(I sure hope) the Pats better be AWESOME this year. None of that Matt Cassel nonsense. Boy better win me some big points with Randy Moss this year for my Fantasy Football... sorry my inner geek is starting to emerge.

I tag anyone that's interested in doing it :D

What a Shitacious Amazing Party + Getting To Know Each Other

Hola, blogga chicas! Que paso?! I've been neglecting blogger way too much as of late but life has thrown a few curve balls my way X P but I am back and in action! I have a few new buys to share with y'all and a few tags to do! So as I jam and write this I hope you enjoy it:D

It was my birthday on Monday so I wanted to share some things that I got :D

I don't know if anyone remembers this from my previous post but I once saw a box of GIANT Pocky at HMart and my friend Tony happen to get it for me for my birthday. These things are SO freaking good and addicting. I had forgotten how good Pocky was and the fact that they're giant helps. Each box comes with 22 Giant pocky and they are invidutally wrapped. I set it on my notebook to show a size comparison.

Amanda got me an awesome Panda double shot glass from the National Zoo! It's so freaking cute!! It's just asking for trouble since it's a double but it's just in time for going back to school. She recently started a blog so pay my BFF a visit! She's leaving me for England in the start of September to study aborad and I already asked for Berry M products haha

This is the necklace that Dan got me. I found it a few months ago on Esty and thought it was adorable cause I'm a Leo and it's a lion. It's my Mark Poulin. Check him out! He's got man other types of animals and necklaces and rings. I believe his Etsy store is called MarMar. The necklace came in this ADORABLE little box and with a little book of all Mark's characters. I wasn't a big fan of the wire necklace but that can always be changed :)

I decided to give Fluidline another try. I epically FAILED at applying this gel liner a few months ago and gave up, but I'm starting to love using liner on my top lid with a wing and pencil smudges, liner doesn't last long enough, so GEL is the way to go! I was about to get the 266 brush to go along with it but I wasn't able to part with 19.50 just yet so I decided to venture into the land of brushes and start finding my HG liner brush... but I figure I will eventually invest in a 266. The MA that put this on me used a 210 and I really like what it did but I figure angled brush first before moving on to a fine tip brush.

I've been meaning to share this with you girls for a while. This is my Redkin Satinwear 02. It's a blow-dry lotion for your hair. I was on a search for a heat-protected product for my hair when I first cut my hair a while ago and needed to blow dry it every day in order to keep it decent (short hair is so much more work!) and I noticed a burnt hair smell every time after I blow dry my bangs. One of my friends does hair and I told him my issue and he gave me this! I totally love it. Since my hair started growing out, I rarely blow-dry my hair... I ususally just brush and let it naturally dry, but I've been in a rush recently and needed to be presentable. I never blow dry without this now. I just squeeze a little bit on my finger tip and work it into my hair, espeically on the ends and then just blow dry. It makes me hair smell so good and leaves it with a nice shine and healthy bounce.
I got this at Hot Topic the other day since I had a gift card and it was only 9.99. I've been obsessed with his new single Fireflies for some time now and have neglected to buy his CD. I LOVE THIS CD!! Owl City stays true to his style and there's not much I don't love about this CD. The only thing I don't like about this CD is the track "Hello Seattle" which is one of my favorite songs by Owl City is totally different from the old version and I much prefer the older version of the song. Although the differences between the new version and old version are very subtle... I'm very picky when it comes to my favorite songs. My favorite songs are "The Bird and the Worm" and "Umbrella Beach" to name a few :D

This is my new Target brand Pre-Brush Mouth Rinse. I've been wanting my teeth a lot whiter but I don't want to invest in Whitening Stripes because of what I've heard about them. I chose the target brand over Listerine mostly because of the price difference. The ingredients are exactly the same and so is the amount. The only difference maybe the formula between the two, but hey for a less bucks I'm willing to give it a go. I do have to admit that I have no been using this religiously like I should be in order to test it out. I get lazy when I brush my teeth haha. But I will start using it again and will do a full review later.

I also had a party last week (which I talked consistently about haha) and to say the least it was an insane amount of fun! Donna & I's jungle juice was insanely good. Nothing says drunken mess like some Everclear.
My awesome Panda cake that Amanda made for me with bamboo cuppy cakes!

The Biffle and I! Poor girl was in pain cause she had just gotten her wisdom teeth pulled.
One of my favorite pictures of this summer. The first ever Crack Pack + Originals picture and everyone got the memo to stick out their tongue and make a face! Its so rare that we're able to take a picture together... much less all making a similar face. Gosh, how drunk were we...HAHA
Big Bro & Me! <33333>
A(natomy) Crew! TK doesn't hug... ever so my friend Kristen and I decided to give him a hug!
After I blew out my candles, I decided to basically hug everyone... and rock my friend's GaGa glasses... Donna's face is priceless.

"There's an Asian Family in Our Bathroom..." Video Heavy

The first thing I HAVE to talk about is "500 Days of Summer." I don't know how many of you girls have seen the trailer for this movie but I totally adore it. I remember seeing it in passing but totally forgot about it till yesterday when Dan took me out to dinner cause I was hungry and mentioned that he was going to kidnap me to see a movie but I told him I was hungry. I told him to kidnap me after dinner and that he did indeed. He wouldn't tell me what movie we were seeing and we played a little guessing game until we finally got to the theater.

But back to the movie. I think this is a MUST see summer movie. Here's the official trailer:

The trailer explains it all. It's a boy meets girl story, but not a typical love story. It's much more realistic (but still has movie magic) than any other love story I've ever seen. It left me with a nice warm and fuzzy feeling though, I'll say that much. It's now officially one of my favorite movies of all time. It's up there with Garden State. The music featured in the movie was AWESOME.

It has Joseph Gordon-Levitt (from 10 Things I Hate About You) and Zoey Deschanel (ELF).
Their chemistry is wonderful to watch and the jokes are amazing. I laughed so much during this movie and didn't want it to be over. Might I add, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has grown into a fine young man??

I saw this video on ICA Images' blog. You should check her out. Her photography is pretty freakin' awesome! But I saw this video and totally fell in love with it.

Instrumental styling + Taylor Swift + Coldplay + me = amazed

So I stalk religiously because he has the daily dose of RPattz and is always up to date with Twilight drama and stills! But he featured this clip of the much anticipated TV show Glee, which I've been dying over and can't wait for the Fall season to start so I figure I'd share it with y'all.

The lovely Amy Naree tagged me to do the "6 Things that Make You Happy." So here it is!

1. Friends
My friends are so important in my life. They keep me grounded and provide me with wonderful times and laughs. I value them a whole freakin' lot and they make me really uber happy hahaha.

2. Food
What girl doesn't love FOOD! It makes me full and content... thus HAPPY! I don't care if it's froyo, cupcakes, ramen, or steak... food is awesomness.

3. Singing and Dancing in the car
He's gonna kill me for using this picture...
No matter what mood I'm in I can count on music to either mellow me out or put a smile on my face. But put me in a car with my iPod and it's over! I also like watching my friends jam in their cars cause we get silly.

4. Baking
I love baking. Sometimes I bake when I'm bored, or happy, or stressed. No matter the reason it always cheers me up... probably cause the end product is Food... haha

5. Webcams
Hahaha! He made that face cause I got a snapshot of him before making a silly face at me. I love webcams. Although it's not as good as seeing someone in person, it's good enough for me until I can. It makes missing someone a little bit easier...

6. Cuddling
I'm a cuddler. Guilty.

I tag... EVERYONE. That's right. I want to know what puts a smile on your face!

till next time, lovers

Hi, I am C.Tang and I am UBER Forgetful- Swatches + Reviews + Award

Anyone that knows me, knows that I am extremely forgetful! I totally forgot a LOT of things that I was going to put in my previous post, but I will make it up in this one :)

First, I realized that I never did a swatch of my Revlon lipsticks on my lips! Dumbass hahaha. So here they are for your viewing pleasure!
Here's my natural lip with lip balm for comparison.

Gentlemen Prefer Pink

As I said before, this is my FAVORITE out of the three that I picked up. It gives my lips a noticeable but gentle pearly pink. I've had no problems with this lippie drying out my lips at all and to say the least I'm pretty much in love with it. I can wear it almost everyday with any outfit... other then my gym clothes :)
Pink About It

So, this was the BRIGHT ass pink lipstick that reminded me of a strawberry pink. And now you can see what I mean by this swatch. It has grown on me a bit though, but I did find this one to be very drying after a few hours, which is weird because I never had a problem with my other Revlon Matte lipstick. Overall, I don't hate it but I don't love it. I'll probably be a lippie I keep on hand for a day where I'm feeling very fun and confident.

Pink Pout

Ahhhh. The lipstick that sparked the Revlon haul to begin with! I don't think this picture does this lipstick much justice but I absolutely LOVE this lipstick. It gives me the perfect nude lip without washing out my face completely. I've always had that issue with nude lips where it's so nude that it just makes my face look... off. Maybe I'll be able to show you guys in a picture one day. But this lipstick has very light pinks in it and when paired with Florabundance, I've got a lip that is perfect for summers.

So while I'm on the subjects of lipsticks. Christine and I were discussing a few things she wanted to buy (Revlon lippies) and we talked about how surprisingly nice the quality of this drug store lipstick was and then... It occurred to me.

Ever since I bought my Revlon lipsticks, I have completely neglected my Mac Honeylove. I tried wearing this lipstick out many times since I bought it and every time after a few hours, my lips are as dry as the Sahara Desert, despite putting lip balm under my lipstick. Does anyone else have this issue with Mac lipsticks? I know Mac is like the Holy Grail to many blogger babes and extremely lovable due to all their colors and finishes, but for $14 each and such popular demand, I kind of expected something more promising, even if I have to put lip balm under it. So lovely readers I must ask you, do you have the same issue with Mac lippies drying your lips or am I just imagining things? How was your first Mac lipstick experience? Also, what are your favorite lipsticks brands/colors?

Keep or Return?
Since I'm on a ROLL with this beauty stuff, why stop now?! My Lancome BiFacil has been at it's very last days of life for a while and I wanted to try something other then the BiFacil becuase I'll be the first to admit, I am not made of money and my beauty addiction has taken a toll on my bank account. I've read many reviews that Clinique Take the Day Off is comparable to the Lancome Bifacil. So I went out and bought a travel size of Take the Day Off (1.7 fl oz for $8.50 at Sephora) instead of the full size (4.2 fl oz for $17.50) vs Lancome BiFacil which only comes in the 4.2 fl oz size for $26 . That's a whole $8.50 difference for the same amount of product.

Here are my thoughts on the Lancome Bifacil:
- A little bit goes a long way
- very gentle on eyes (doesn't matter if I'm using toilet paper or cotton balls)
- 1 or 2 swipes gets ALL my make up off, including MUFE liner or MAC waterproof liner

My thoughts on Take the Day Off:
- not as gentle as BiFacil, but no tugging necessary to take off make up
- 2 to 4 swipes to get off all water proof liner
- sometimes I have to go back with a Q-tip and get the remaining liner on my eyes
- I generally have to dip my cotton ball 2x
- The layers never seperate properly again after using... instead it creates a 3rd milky colored layer between.... reminds me of Organic chemistry and inorganic layers and organic layers... hahaha I'm such a geek!

Overall thoughts:
Is Take off the Day as great as BiFacil? : H-e-double hockey sticks NO
Is TOTD a good and cheaper alternative to BiFacil?: Yes. Yes it is.
Would I recommend TOTD to a friend?: Totally! My friends and I were playing with make up one day and we all used it.

Verdict: Keep or Return?
Keep. It's good for what it is and the price doesn't break the bank. Will I be running out to buy the full size when I'm done with the travel size? No. I've read on some blogs that baby oil does the job just as well! We all know that the key in removing make up is oil! Yes, it leave a residue on your face, but I wash my face post-taking off make up anyways! Plus it's hella cheap. It's worth the try. But if baby oil doesn't work out, I'll more then likely return to using BiFacil.

So the lovely Puff gave me the blogger buddie award:
I love the icon that goes for it! It's so cute!! Thank you, Puff for giving me this award! You are too sweet. I love the idea behind it because we are all kinda like buddies on blogger :)

Pass this award on to bloggers you feel are friendly (hence blogger "buddie" :D) and interesting posters as well!

I award:
Amy Naree

"Tony Kim" (12:05:21 PM): I GOT ALL 151 POKEMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is the IM I just got...which reminds me that I've been wanting to share something with y'all for a while. There is this website called Sporcle that Dan got me addicted to... and I in turn got Tony addicted to this summer. It's basically a category game. For example: Name the Original 150 Pokemon... (which Tony has done God knows how many times) and you just type your answers (if it's the right answer it'll automatically go in, no need to press enter). The site is updated daily with new categories so I do it when I get REALLY bored. I think I've done a good 75% of them... and 20% I've done twice.

I don't know if I've ever told you guys, but I can see the future... I foreshadow...

That I will be writing a post on my thoughts of the movie 500 Days of Summer, another nail swatch, show you guys a bit of my closet and my shoes, food that I've been meaning to share... and do another tag :D

Nails, Swatches, and Pictures, OH MY!

How was your weekend, my lovely chicas?? My weekend was pretty wonderful. This picture basically explains why my weekend was so great:
Hahahahaha. Oh yes, this is the stud muffin, Philip from a previous post... with a funny face and shot glasses on his head. Did I ever mention I have the BEST friends?! But I'll save the pictures of my life for later on in the post.

I mentioned before that I had a little China Glaze haul and I've been painting my nails random colors lately. Here's the product of Thursday night:
Sexy in the City

This color reminds me of the mermaid color that Sephora had on their website for a while. It's got subtle green undertones that you can't see in the picture. It's so nice and shiny. My thoughts on China Glaze so far is pretty freakin' rad. I haven't had any chipping what so ever and the colors come out very nice. I ususally do two coats to get an even color :)

I also forgot to mention this little thing when I did my post on my Revlon haul! My bad.
Revlon Color Stay Pallete in Saultry Smokey

So far I've only played with the colors. I realized that the picture doesn't really show that the last color is a very light Lavender. So far, that one is my favorite. I really have no effin' clue how to apply eyeshadow ( I'm such a N00b) but chyeah. I've tried a few things out and I look like a freak of nature with colored eyelids. Hahahaha. My friend Monica used to do my make up before I went out when I lived in Connecticut (for all of 6 months, fail). So hopefully one day I'll master the skills of eyelid art and show you guys how great this pallet is.

So this past week was one of my best friends birthday! (see post below haha) And to say the least we had to throw a party since it was her big 21st. I'm sure I totally bore you guys with my life but my friends are such a big part of me and this blog is intended to document my beauty habits and my life events, so I figure I'd share a few pictures with y'all. If you want more, friend me on Facebook! My badge is to the right... please let me know if that link allows you to friend me. My privacy settings on my FB are so complicated I confuse myself sometimes.

One of my favorite pictures from the night. Classic Joel face. Why must he be so tan! Amanda creeping in the back!

Amanda and Daniel. They've known each other since like 5th Grade... and I think they're secretly best friends, they just don't want to admit it to each other.

This is me with my friend Sean. I look awful in this pic, but I wanted to show you guys Sean. Cori and I call him Jacob Black ahahha. He looked a lot more like Jacob with his old long hair but now he's Wolf Pack Jacob with his short hair. Amanda kept going on and on about how he and his brothers, and our friends (who are also brothers) compose the Wolf Pack... I love drunk Amanda!

My big bro, Avo and me. My picture taking skills were so sloppy at this point, but I love Avo's God pose hahaha. No, he's not really my brother by birth, but we might as well be family.

I love the Birthday Girl, Cori, to pieces <3. Sorry for the blurriness but Cori and I agreed that it's very metaphorical to how the night was... a blur but totally fun.

We are thicker then blood, we are a bit more than friends, we are family <3


So I haven't hauled much since I'm trying to save up a bit, but I did buy a few clothes that I've been meaning to show you girls so that'll definatly be next post! I am by NO means a fashionista and I have a hard time picking out clothes that fit me right, but when I do I snatch that up!

Hope everyone is doing well :)

Happy Birthday + Random You Tube Video

I want to wish my LOVELY WONDERFUL BESTIE, CORI a...

An old picture of us from the best summer ever.

Yeah, I get really excited about my girl's birthdays especially the big 21. Yes, I'm totally obnoxious and feel the need to announce it to the world that my friends are born on their birthday, I apologize. Just a nice and short post today. Gym in the mornin' then hopefully getting a new cell phone!

Thanks to everyone that responded to my last post about the hair straightener situation :)

I end this post with one of Cori and I's favorite youtube video. WARNING: NSFW! His name is Bo Burnham and he's a comedian and one of the most offensive and hilarious people I've ever watched! Please don't watch if you're easily offended. I've got a totally twisted sense of humor. You'll see what I mean after you watch this.

p.s. I'm a geek and actually did the math to see how many years it'd be statutory rape... hahaha >.<
His CD and DVD is available at Target for $9.99!

Enjoy, blogger chicas!

Stacy's Giveaway Package + Revlon Haul

This is my "HI!!!!!" face. *insert frantic waving hand to all bloggers reading this* Hahaha... I'm so awkward it's insane.

Moving on to the post...

I hauled some Revlon lipsticks that I must share with you guys because I'm totally in love with them.

Revlon Matte Lipstick - Pink Pout (without flash)
This picture does NO justice to this lipstick. It's actually a very pretty light pink. I wore this for the first time today and so far I'm very impressed with this. I read on SwatchCrazee's blog that this is about a shade lighter then Mac's Pink Nouveau. I don't own Pink Nouveau but if you go to her post here you can see for yourselves :).

I read a lot of reviews that said that Revlon Matte lipsticks were very drying but I didn't have this issue at all during my 7+ hours of wearing it. I did put a layer of Palmer's Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick on my lips before applying the lipstick. I finished my lips with Mac's Florabundance on top of this and it gave me a wonderful pink lip. Regretfully, I didn't take any pictures, but I'll be sure to include a pic soon with this lippie.

Revlon Matte Lipstick- Pink About It (without flash)
I've only swatched this on my hand so far but the color still scares me a bit. It is more of a strawberry red in my opinion than a pink. It's extreamly bright too... I have no idea when I'll ever wear this but when I do I'll be sure to post a picture haha.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (Pearl Finish)- Gentlemen Prefer Pink
Without flash (can you see my China Glaze haul... hahaha next post :) )

With flash

I picked this lipstick out on a total whim, no lie. I was just standing looking at the colors and grabbed this one and asked Cori if she liked it and she said she thought the color was cute so I bought it. Little did I know that I would fall in love with this lippie. It's a very cute pink and and it lasts for a while. Again, I had no problem with drying but I tend to always put either cocoa butter or chapstick on my lips first because I hate having chapped lips, espeically with lipsticks.

I got bored and decided to play with my new lipsticks. Here's the product of my boredom:
I blended Gentlemen Prefer Pink and Pink Pout together and topped it with NYX Smokey Look (159) that I got from Stacy from her giveaway (see below).

So Mai (Maitai [I love her blog! Her pictures and posts are always so interesting]) and I won Stacy's (stacieeelovesit) giveaway! I was so excited cause I've never won anything before and I love Stacy (and her blog :) ) so I couldn't wait to see what goodies would come in the mail. I loved everything she got me! Here's a few pics:

EEP! Words cannot express how happy/grateful I am for her gifts. I'm especially in love with the NYX glosses she included. I've tried both of them for work and they look wonderful (will swatch later for you guys :) ).

So I've been on a mission to live up this summer as much as possible which is why I become MIA from blogger. I went mini golfing with Donna, Donna's brother, and JPromster last week and here's my favorite picture that I stole from Donna from the event.

Oh yeah. We were proud of our golf balls.

This whole having a bit of freedom during the summer (instead of school) has given me a new outlook on life. I used to let a lot of things eat at me and be bothered by so much drama, but I'm determined to just let go of a lot of it. Not let things bug me so much and to put it simply, "brush the dirt off my shoulder." Life is honestly too short to be bothered by things and people that aren't worth the effort. Drama is so unnecessary and is so middle school. Part of growing up is leaving stuff in the past and that is what I plan on doing. As much as I hate getting older (my secret wish is to be forever 17 cause I had the time of my life at 17), it's going to happen and there is nothing I can do to stop it, so why not embrace it and fill my life with wonderful people who love me for who I am and have done nothing but been there for all the smiles, laughs, and tears?

Ok so enough about my new philosophy.

I also got to hang out with Cori D 4 days in a row! I swear this hasn't happened since summer of 06, but I love hanging out with this girl and I hate how responsiblities come in the way of our hang out time! We took a little trip to Rita's to hang out with our friend Philip.
Cori D! Rockin' my black and white Wayfarers that I got from Forever 21 :) This lovely chica is turning 21 this Friday and I know how much she loves them so they're offically hers. <3 style="text-align: center;">

RITAS! It's almost as good as Froyo. They have the yummiest Custard ever. I didn't get anything the day we went but I always get the twist of Vanilla and Chocolate custard in a waffle cone with rainbow sprinkles on the side so I can dunk my custard into it so every bite is a sprinkle bite. Haha, I just realized how childish that sounded! But seriously, I ate at this place at least once a week during the summer of '06. Their Italian ice is pretty gosh darn yummy too. I'm sure I'll have actual pictures of their yum yums in later posts.
My friend Philip who I haven't seen in at least 4 months or so. Haha, I think he looks like such a stud muffin in this picture. He's a fire fighter, thus his little radio thing-a-ma-bobber and his guns (what I like to call biceps). He was the only one from his squad at the station that day but Cori and I begged and pleaded for him to come out and meet us ( I told him that Rita's was on fire and it was his duty to put it out. :) ) because we hadn't seen him in forever. Seeing him just makes me more excited because I can't wait to be reunited with all my old friends at Cori's 21st birthday party. It's the one of the few events all summer that brings us all back together regardless of what we're all doing. It's going to be such a shit show, I can't wait. XD
