Things Disappointed Sapphire Says

Why did you have to do this, June? I’m so disappointed in you. You couldn’t have said it was a typo? I didn’t think I could be this disappointed in you! You’re a disgrace!!

(Context: I sent “We ride at 10, I’ll bring potato” through the group chat, and when she didn’t understand the reference, I sent her the meme.)

Upon Returning

Hello, all! I realize it has been quite a while since I updated with anything more than a few brief sentences or poorly focused pictures. Since I have a little time to spare, I figured I would rectify this situation with a few lines about life upon returning to UNP for our spring semester. It probably will not surprise you to learn that antics and shenanigans have occurred in abundance, and I feel that it is my civil duty to inform you of these. What follows is a topical overview of the past several days at UNP.

Poserifying 500

Since Junhi, Fritz and Finn have been reunited (Bill is in Japan, and their new roommate has yet to participate in many group shenanigans that I have witnessed), the primary focus of their energies has been to spruce up their room in anticipation of their new “home entertainment system” (projector/sound system combo that is still having its kinks worked out). Here is a picture of what they’ve got so far:

Like I said, working out the kinks.

Anyway, Finn spent much of the time that they spent cleaning their room rearranging certain items and putting things in conspicuous locations, making 500, in Junhi’s words, “Poseriffic.” Finn insisted that using Evangelion figures as bookends for Junhi’s giant stack of freaking economics books that he reads for fun would make them appear “cultured,” although Junhi insisted that it was, like most things Finn seems to like, “weeaboo trash”

One particular example of Finn poserifying 500 came when he put up Junhi’s Korean calendar:

Finn: [starts putting up calendar]

Junhi: [insists that this counts as being a poser]

Finn: But you’re Korean!

Junhi: **** yeah I’m Korean!

Finn: Then it’s not posing!

Junhi: Juuuuuuuune.

Me: …

Junhi: Juuuuuuuuuuune.

I could be paraphrasing, but that was the general gist of it.

Shopping with Children

I have always maintained that shopping with Fritz and Finn is like shopping with small children. In fact, between Finn’s propensity to touch literally everything and knock all of the things off of shelves and Fritz’s tendency to get lost, accidentally or purposefully, and then brood when we find him again, I would almost say shopping with children might be easier.

Anyway, yesterday we went out to get who knows what (it seems they never really have a clear idea of what they want to get at the store when they go, but oh well), and, as you’d expect, it was no different.

Naturally, there were antics of the normal variety, but they were mild enough that I can’t recall them even long enough to write them down. However, one exciting thing did happen. They found an orphaned dinosaur piñata.

Look at them. Look at how proud they are.

That’s all that happened, really. This entire post was built on the pretense of presenting that picture. Now that it’s out there, I’m not sure what to do. Oh well.

Genetics

Turns out that Fritz and I are in the same genetics section. What interesting things happened with that, you may ask? Nothing. We just discovered the heterozygoat meme.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! I know the length of this post is still underwhelming, but I’m sure that I will be updating with antics soon! (We are planning to go to the gym, after all… A bad idea, as UNP students will know for reasons undisclosed. I know, but we do what we want.)

Old Pictures We Will Never Live Down

I was sifting through the photos on my iPad last night while Sapphire was reading a fantasy book on her phone. What I found once I got past all of the mundane college pictures made me giggle manically. They remind me of old times (and things our kids will be able to hold over us, probably.) I told Finn I was going to post them—I didn’t lie, did I?

This one is the least horrible—in fact, I think it’s rather cute, honestly. ^^ What boy could resist Scout’s boy-catching face when she was wearing a Burger King crown?

IMG_2320

Finn found the box his church set up to collect stuff for him to take to college with him. When asked why he climbed in it, he responded, “It was my box, dangit!”

Unhappy Finn is unhappy about Sherly and I making him go on the Tower of Terror three times, and we know why.

(You did this to meeeee!!!)

This is what happens when Finn is late for a movie we agreed to see. (There are more where this came from, but this one was my favorite.)

Natalia, my sister, is the most attractive person on the planet, bar none.

No objections will be accepted.

A meme my other sister, Katniss, made and saved to my iPad.

I had never made a duck-face before. I feel I succeeded.

IMG_4005

Actually, this one is relatively recent. This was both amusing and disturbing.

IMG_2266

Finn and Eric’s sister is the queen of boy-catching faces. (I actually really love this picture; it always makes me laugh. If Pinky wants it taken down, though, I can delete it.)

IMG_3202

Another of Scout’s boy-catching faces, and proof that she is unable to actually look legitimately unattractive making faces.

Sorry, guys… Are you ready to kill me yet? I mean, I know most people don’t put embarrassing pictures of themselves on the internet, but I do what I want!
