Sooooo I kind of sort of totally missed the boat on BEDA (Blog EveryDay in April) since yesterday was Aprrrrril (you have to trilllll the prrrrr) first and as you can see, I did not blog. :ashamed: But as with most failures in my life, I have well thought out reasons or what some people (my girlfriend) consdier excuses. First of all, I missed yesterday...can't go back in time, auto-fail from the beginning. Secondly, I rarely if ever get on the computer on the weekends and that would be epic failure on two out of every seven days. Thirdly, I have come to the realization that I am not creative or funny enough to write an entertaining blog. 2D just doesn't do me justice...and 3D (aka VEDA) isn't going to happen. Fourthly (and I'll try to wrap this up) I have but one mere follower ::waves to Susie:: You're awesome!! Sorry you have to read this...
So in speaking with my seester (aka Poopsilon...that story will have to wait for another day), I was reminded of how close we are now and use to be growing up. This morning on my way to work I changed gears from the usual mellow boy-wine piano rock of MAE and the Counting Crows to the awesome-ness that is Aly & AJ. Heard of them? You better, they are awesome! A sister duo that plays the guitar and sings all these fun pop songs. I have all of their CDs...cause I'm a dork. They've had a few made for TV movies and Aly was a star of Phil of the Future on the Disney Channel. Anyway, I love them.
Now back to my sister. Growing up in the military means growing up very closely with your family. Luckily my sister and I were less than 3 years apart in age which is close enough to be friends and have common interests, yet far enough apart to not be up each other's butt. Growing up in Europe lended itself well to extremely long car rides and travel. To entertain ourselves, we often played with our trolls, LEGOS and stuffed animals. Our characters would sing, fight, love and sometimes their legs would fall off. Good times were had by all, especially when we got a hold of our dad's voice recorder. Needless to say, many jokes and stories were recorded over the years, including our debut hit "Down Down Baby*," which at the age of 10 didn't have the same conotations.
With that being said, my sister and I dreamed of a day when we could take our hit platinum and be The Sister Twins! (that was the brilliant name we came up with) And that leaves me where I was this morning...sitting in my car, jamming out to who my sister and I consider to be "sister twins realized," Aly & AJ. Could've been us....could've been us...
Daily Office Faux Pas: Whoever was passing gas by my desk!! I'm sure people thought it was me...thanks! Also nosey people that later admitted to reading the card that came with the flowers from the 'rents. My flowers, my card biotches!! Mind your own!
*our version of the lyrics-
Down, down baby,
Down by the rollarcoaster.
Sweet, sweet baby,
I'll never let you go.
