somewhere in between
not a car!!! i repeat..!
ok so ummm surreys don't drive anything like cars. that's
what we've learned today :-)
yaaaay! this morning britt & i were kidnapped for our
birthdays and mal & meg took us to santa barbara. they
actually blindfolded us and we got out of the car and
people were staring at us but it was cool so whatever. we
went alll the way down state street and i found the church
i'm going to get married at...i love it. i mean i've loved
santa barbara forever, but now i've found THE church i
want. trinity episcopal church...SOOOOOO PRETTY!!!
ok yeah. then we went and got italian food at this cute
restaurant on state. we ate six loaves of bread and
terrorized the poor waiter, who kept mumbling weird things
to us and just going, "MMM" every few minutes. our friend
meghan didn't know that you have to tell the nice waitress
when she's put enough cheese on your pasta. she had like a
mountain of parmesan and it was great. a good testament to
our level of sophistication, i'd say.
then we shopped all over...britt discovered some things
about boys & girls she never knew...mal & i found a gliding-
action jesus figurine...meghan hit on an abercrombie boy.
typical. typical leo, that is. (ok marisa gets
it...everyone else thinks i'm into astrology now).
then we rented a double surrey...those big bikes where a
ton of people can fit on? yeah um let's just say that
whatever confidence i had in brittany's driving is now
gone. FOREVER!!! she almost killed us right in front of
the hot trolley kids. and i yelled a lot when i
drove..."IF I DON'T FEEL YOU ALL PEDALLING, THEN NO ONE'S
PEDALLING! IF NO ONE'S PEDALLING, NO ONE'S GOING
ANYWHERE! IF YOU GO HOME, EVVVVVVERYBODY'S GOING HOME!!!"
and i tried to do u-turns. tried. (by the way, pedalling
is a weird word. i had to look it up to make sure
it's "pedalling" rather than "pedaling". it said it could
be either way. fascinating, i know!)
then we went to get coffee and i found this really hot guy
working there and he was soooo cute. and when my coffee
thing was ready, he said it in this little singsong voice
and then he did the same w/ britt's, so they decided he was
gay. why are hot guys gay, hmm?? yet one more enigma in
then we went to meet my parents and i tried on shoes for an
hour and finally found the ones i liked and they are soooo
cute. and my mom went to pay for them (bday present, ok?!)
and they turned out to be $10 more than she thought so she
roared at the saleslady and then she roared at this other
guy and man oh man. scary moments.
then we all drove home & harmonized in the car...kinda
cute. and we decided we needed to watch zoolander so we
did...but no one appreciates it as much as bk and i do. oh
well. we're cool. but jettas are still gay. hella gay,
