Such a Huge Ego

5 Dec

Due to my Thursday night’s escapades I have been thinking about alter egos. You know the one you get when you have had a few too many sips? Party Nicole, sometimes Violet to strangers, can be a diva, a best friend, a total bitch, or worse…a crier.

Here is a list of common alter egos:

The New Best Friend: This may also be referred to as the super needy girl. She is usually an ice queen when she is sober, and ultimately feels the need to make up for her general lack of warmth when she is hammered. Be careful if she comes your way, once you so much as smile at her crazy @ss she will dub you her new bff4L. At some point in the night she might puke, and since you are her new best friend you are obligated to take care of her.

The Soulmate: Watch out boys, this girl is on the prowl. She is feeling extra hungry tonight and you are one prime piece of meat. Don’t be fooled by the sexy eyes she is throwing your way, you will not be spending your night making out in the corner. Instead she will end up telling you all about her ex-boyfriend and how much she still loves him. Then she will cry.

The Bitch: Lock your doors. The bitch has decided that she really wants to make everyone’s night utter hell. She will complain about the beer/liquor choice, change the music and refuse to hide the rude faces she makes at all the other girls (we normally try not to let the girls see, it can get awkward). Surprisingly this girl is normally super nice during the day. This is a great example why it is not normal to be happy all the time. NOBODY IS ALWAYS NICE.

The Diva: Don’t confuse the diva with the bitch. This lady is all sass, but it works. She makes outrageous demands (refusing to share the cab karaoke microphone), but it’s all in good fun. This girl is fashionably late to the party, but always the last to leave. The indention marks on your coffee table are the result of her heels when she decided to dance last night. She won’t remember, so don’t bring it up again.

The Crier: This girl is the normal one, at least for a while, of the party. She is friendly, funny, and helpful to the host. However after she downs that 2nd solo cup of Franzia her eyes begin to tear up and she starts to bawl. You never know exactly what she is crying about because she doesn’t make any sense. Check on her an hour later and she will be completely fine.

Do you have an alter ego? I am most definitely guilty of all of the above..

Fully Sassy at Semi-Formal

3 Dec

Thursday night was my sorority’s semi-formal. This is an excuse for all of use to neglect homework, dress up in super modest dresses, and act like we are all 21. My night did not start out like I had planned, which ultimately resulted in my super sassiness and acting like I owned the place. Sometimes a girl needs a night like that.

The night ended with my refusing to let anyone else play cab karaoke as I proceeded to belt out Bills, Bills, Bills and Baby One More TIme. Your welcome for the cheap entertainment. Classy as always.

Dress: Urban Oufitters via art fair sale; Heels: Steve Madden

Clutch: Express; Baubles: Dana’s jewelry drawer

And then lot’s of this…

led to this. Oops.

We can’t always be angels…

Are you a cab diva?

My Favorite Things: 25 Days of Christmas

1 Dec

I have already made it perfectly clear that I am a major Christmas dork, so I am more than excited that today is the 1st of December. Why? ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas beings today! I can now turn on my tv at any given moment and be greeted with the sweet sounds of Christmas carols, sappy movies, and childhood memories.

Dying.

Here are my top-ten favorite movies EVER.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Muppets who sing, what could be better? Michael Cane is perfect in this movie and I cry ever time.

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer (claymation version)

A childhood classic. This movie has everything an elf with aspiring dentist dreams, misfit toys (the ones the out-of-town relatives give you), and of course Rudolph!

The Santa Clause Trilogy

So good! He takes his kid to Denny’s for Christmas dinner! That’s awesome.

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

Squirrel in tree, sewer blows up, cat gets electrocuted. Watch it now. It’s like SNL on crack.

White Christmas

Bing Crosby, enough said.

Holiday Inn

Bing Crosby + Fred Astaire, stop it I’m dying.

A Christmas Story

When my brother received a BB gun for Xmas one year all I could think of was “You’ll shoot yer’ eye out!” He didn’t….

Miracle on 34th Street (Matilda version)

She is just such a cupcake, and Dylan McDermott makes an appearance. Uhm, yes please.

The Polar Express

Tom Hanks never fails to impress. This is one of THE BEST Christmas morning movies ever.

Elf

Funny. I can’t explain it. Just go watch.

What is your favorite holiday movie?
