They Really Let You Do That?

I graduated today. I've been waiting for this day for so long because--honestly--I couldn't wait to get out of here. Or at least I would have said that at the beginning of Fall semester. But a lot of things have changed since then: awesome Marketing classes; fabulous, fun roommates; Laura; Xtina; Scrabblegrams; dance parties....and SO much more. This year has been the BEST year I have EVER had at BYU and for once, I'm sad to leave. But what can you do.

Anyways, enough with the emo Morgan. The real reason for this post was because I wanted to discuss theses (the plural of thesis for those who are thinking that I spelled "these" wrong). So yesterday was the university commencement and in the program, those who got university honors were listed along with the title of the thesis they wrote. Some were legit, others were questionable...yet HILARIOUS! Please...scroll down with me to view a few of these gold nuggets I discovered:

Major: Comparative Studies - THESIS: The Mythic Symbols of Batman (Awesome.)

Aaaand my personal favorite (this one's for you Laura):

Major: Mass Communications - THESIS: Using the ZMET Method to Understand individual Meanings Created by Video-Game Players Through the Player-Super Mario Avatar Relationship. (I MUST meet this guy).

....hahahahaha. Seriously, if I knew that you could write your thesis on practically ANYTHING you wanted, I would have done one of these. I'm thinking "The Addicting Effects of Guitar Hero 3 on the College Student Psyche and its Ability to Delude Those With No Real Legitimate Talent at All into Thinking They're Actual Laudable Rockstars." Yes, I think that'll do.

50 Reasons

50 Reasons Why Momo & Xtina Didn’t Go On Any Dates This Semester:

I believe the title says enough: we have managed to compile a list of 50 reasons why no guys asked us outor even wanted to ask us out this semester. I'm sure we could have made this list even longer, but 50 is embarrassing enough.


50. When a boy asks us what our plans are, we say that we are "obviously hanging out with each other."
49. Have photo shoots on a weekly basis—most of the time. Being models is such a busy life...
48. Get all of the latest model poses—which we implement in our weekly photo shoots—by watching America's Next Top Model marathons on VH1
47. Share an addiction for What Not to Wear, even though we never got to watch one together this semester
46. As a tradition, we binge on Churros (at least three) every time we are at Disneyland, even when we are not with each other
45. Have matching MacBooks
44. "Pimped out" our rides, aka MacBooks, using the exact same method, just different foiling colors (Kristina has green and Morgan has red)
43. Wear way too much cheetah and or/leopard print
42. Half the time, our hanging out is spent studying in the library together
41. The most common text message we send each other is, "Where are you?"
40. We talk to each other on our computers via google chat even though we're in the same room.
39. Watched all of Grey's Anatomy—4 seasons worth—in our apartment within two months.
38. Love to fill up people's cameras with pictures of the two of us (usually taken in a "MySpace fashion" from a high angle)
37. Make friends with random people on campus: Spanish-speaking missionaries, Multimedia Lab Assistants, etc.
36. Invite those friends over for game nights (excluding the missionaries) and then use them to get us Oregon Trail for our computers.
35. Whenever we go to a concert, we somehow manage to get in the VIP area where we then proceed to steal energy drinks by shoving them into our giant handbags.
34. Carry around handbags filled with stolen energy drinks.
33. We're beautiful, ambitious, and are pursuing careers as high powered doctors: traits that, when combined, are lethal and intimidating to other men. Specifically—all BYU men.
32. Judge people by their ability to put makeup on—basically how much black eyeliner they apply.
31. MAC Cosmetics addicts
30. Know all the MAC eyeshadow colors by heart. So instead of saying, "Oh your makeup looks good today," we say, "Oh I really like Amber Lights on your lid. And is that a hint of Honey Lust I see in your crease?"
29. We relate to over 50% of the things on the list of "Stuff White People Like"
28. Criticize the blonde, white waitresses at sushi restaurants. Blonde/white= not legit.
27. It has been said that we even talk in the same manner/way.
26. When people ask us about doing things separately we reply,"Whatever, we do what we want!"
25. After we saw a Gay couple at Disneyland, we choose to hold hands as well.
24. Whenever there is a Cheesecake Factory in the area near us, we proceed to go and enjoy a tasty slice of key-lime cheesecake—even if we are full.
23. Refer to each other by somewhat offensive terms such as hoe, skank, and slut.
22. Sometimes refer to each other by our Grey's Anatomy Aliases—Dr. Torres and Dr. Addison Forbes Montgomery-Shepherd
21. In discussing our lives, we also burst into random rap or hip-hop songs, i.e. "I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T do you know what that means?"
20. Call people Cholos (mostly Xtina). Example: "What do you think you are looking at, Cholo?"
19. Relate our lives to surgeries and relationships within the Grey's Anatomy universe.
18. Make our own Spring Break vacation...at DISNEYLAND.
17. Make fun of the lame Jack Sparrow impersonator at Disneyland.
16. Facebook stalk people (mostly Morgan).
15. Try to order Asparagus on our pizza (actually, that was just Morgan again).
14. Cruise the streets of Provo in a flashy red Mustang
13. Dance ridiculously while driving in the flashy red Mustang
12. Compiled a complete playlist of all 326 songs played on Grey's Anatomy
11. Enjoy Sub-Zero fixes weekly
10. We Cackle, as opposed to flirtatiously giggling when speaking to boys/men
9. Listen to Britney Spears, daily
8. Listen to Miley Cyrus, daily—and are proud of it. Once we heard it play on the mainstream radio, we labeled it "legit" to listen to.
7. Randomly pass the thizz at people mid conversation (mostly Stina)
6. Flash Peace signs—Japanese style. Example: our picture with Mulan at Disneyland.
5. We go to dances as a couple, doubling with Bri and Adam of course.
4. When we think no one is in the room, Morgan seductively/creepily says, "We are finally alone" only to have someone else walk in the room at that exact moment. Talk about awkward!
3. Have expensive Sushi fixes—weekly
2. Worship Dr. Pepper like Hindu's worship Vishnu.
1. People think we’re lesbians.

One of "Them"

The next time a friend tells you, "Let's have a (insert popular, network TV show here) night!" Just say no. Trust me, I've done it to my friends many times with Grey's Anatomy and Survivor. It's just a ploy to get you addicted so that the next time you get together, they can have someone to obsess with about the characters, overly dramatic plot lines, and "how gorgeous what's-his-face is."

This just recently happened to me with LOST. My roommates and I foolishly bought Season 1 for my LOST-obsessed roommate's birthday. We appeased to watch the first few episodes with her (it was her birthday after all) and by the end of it, we were all hooked. I've become one of "them"--those crazy LOST fans. It's only been a week and we now watch two episodes every night before we go to bed and we're almost done with disk 6--the last disk. So the big question is....does anyone have season 2?

And can I just say, Sawyer is the hottest piece of man flesh I've ever seen. Yes, please.

Why, it's Sparkling Peach.

I always have a bottle of lotion with me in my bag at all times. You'll never know when you'll suddenly realize how cracked and scaly your hands are or when someone will ask, "Does anyone have any lotion?" Why yes, actually, I do.

So I was in the library studying the other day (Wait, let me rephrase that. Now that I think about it, I am almost 100% positive that I was playing
this game online). Anyways, I needed some lotion, so dug around my giant bag and found my handy bottle of lotion. I generously applied it, then went back to "studying."

About 10 minutes later, the guy sitting next to me tapped me on the back and asked, "Excuse me, but what kind of lotion is that?" I answered, "Why, it's Sparkling Peach. Would you like some?" as I handed the bottle to him. He declined, but instead took the bottle, opened it, and inhaled the scent with his eyes closed while saying, "That smells
SO good." Um.....yeah, it does. Creeper. Then he gave it back to me and went back to studying his "Mechanics of Business Writing." Yeah with a boring class like that, I'm assuming you'll use anything as a substitute for a hallucinogen just to keep you sane.

But seriously, I'm always surprised about how much guys love girly smells--
fruity girly smells at that. The potency of my lotion always gets comments from guys and this experience gave me flashbacks to junior high and the boys' obsession with the Victoria's Secret lotion/fragrance--Love Spell. After gym, girls in the locker room would douse themselves in this "perfume," not because they enjoyed the smell, but because they knew the guys did. Personally, I think that stuff smells like a rejected lollipop flavor, but guys eat it up. But it worked, whenever a girl put it on she'd have about 10 guys swarming her within 5 minutes. Even then, I won't give in. Sparkling Peach seems to work fine for me.

You Can't Make This Stuff Up

Whenever I'm craving something sweet, I curb my craving by eating a little bit of brownie batter. Just put some brownie mix in a cup, add a bit of water, mix, and VIOLA! It's Fantastique. Well this morning I looked at my half eaten box of brownie mix and decided, "Ew. I don't want any more." So, I threw it away.

Well, I came home around 5 from a long day of school and decided, "Actually...I take it back. I DO want that brownie mix." So I got it out of the trash (don't worry, it was on the top) and looked inside to discover that it was ALL gone! WTF?! So obviously, one of my roommates (whom also love to eat brownie mix) discovered it, picked it out of the trash, and ate it--which I think is hilarious. Kuddos to the roommate who ate my brownie mix out of the trash. Kuddos.

My Secret Obsession

I love to do the Scrabblegram everyday. I love the Daily Jumble too, but those are a bit easier because the max letters you have to unscramble for the Jumble is only 6 letters, opposed to the Scrabblegram's whopping 7 letters (and trust me, that extra letter makes a difference)! Back in high school, I would cut the Scrabblegram out of the paper and try to do it, but I wasn't very good. I would spend all day mulling over it and still MAYBE only be able to get one of the words. Maybe, on a very good day.

In January, I got really excited when I came across a Scrabblegram daily calendar that was 50% off at Barnes & Noble! Well, since then I've gotten better—and subsequently addicted—and now I can bust out all the answers in 5-10 minutes. I tear out a bunch of them at a time and save them for school, church, boring group meetings, roadtrips, etc. Please feel free to call me a nerd; my posting of this truth already affirms it. My friends in my classes know that when I'm doing my Scrabblegram, that I mean business and to not mess with me (and by business I don't mean the business classes I should be paying attention to). Now I think it's time to try my luck at the real Scrabble to see how much I will dominate...
