What is it with guys and Ikea? Between the dollies and hotdogs, Ikea is the one shopping trip that men don't entirely hate getting dragged along to. On top of that, when I came home with two pieces of assemble-yourself furniture, I had dudes practically begging me to allow them to come over and put it together. Of course, I didn't mind this, considering the last time I tried to put one of those Swedish puzzles together it was upside down, backwards, and took about four hours to complete... As they begin, their true macho-man shines through. NO POWER TOOLS. NO HELP. TIME ME! After, oh, thirty minutes or so, the power trip turns into cursing and asking for minor assistance. Its ok guys, no one is completely fluent in picture instructions. In the end, I'm happy, because I have a new book case/TV table AND helped two of my very best friends feel like the ultimate men.

Anyway, I decided my New Year's resolution is to shave my legs everyday like Annie. I feel like this not only betters myself, but others around me as well.

Dan's House
Houston, Tx

So I've had no phone or internet access in about a week. I know, right, how AM I functioning?? I was in Mexico for the holidays...but now I'm back, sunkissed, and ready for 2009.

View from my window.
Puerto Vallarta

Anyway, while laying on the beach, (and reading my last Twilight book) I had alot of time to reflect on this past year. Since it's mostly only our friends that read this silly blog, and I have a passion for lists, I decided to round up the Top 5 Days of 2008.

1. New Years Eve 2007
I guess this counts as this year right?? The highlight of the night? Josh Lowe acting a fool and/or all the booze left at Lindsey's house the next day.

2. The Snow Day
A WHOLE TEN INCHES. Watching Ian fall as he pushed my car out of the drive way, the beer garden, and the massage train...

3. James' Birthday

4. The Night Lindsey's Car Got Towed
Luke was in town. I maybe made out with a certain bartender and an ex in one night. Dancing. And then Lindsey leaving her car in the middle of the street.

5. Lion King Video Game Night
Fairly recent. You know what I'm talking about...I still can't stop thinking about Pride Rock.

Honorable Mentions:
The Justice Show
Zach/Jakes Birthdays
Gazelles Video Shoot
Amy's Last Days in Dallas
The Vanna Boys
White Sands

Did I leave any out? What other days were we perpetually drunk for prolonged periods of time? God I love our friends.

Ladies Room
Austin, TX

Friday, December 19, 2008

I like Santa Clause as much as the next guy.  A normal amount.  Medium.  My mother...my wonderful, sweet adorable mother that I want to be (almost) just like...really likes Santa.  So much, in fact, that during the holidays she proudly displays all of her precious custom-made-as-tall-as-a-five-year-old Santa Clauses all over my parent's house.  

Normally, a loved one's unique and seemingly harmless admiration for a fictional character wouldn't really bother me.  However, coming home drunk to this will always be terrifying.  

Every time.

This lil monster lives halfway up their front staircase and is completely unavoidable when approaching my room from the front door.

Do any of your parents/relatives practice strange holiday behavior?  
Mia, how are you holding up in Houston?

After 90's night (aka the best thing that has ever happened to Denton), we decided to continue the trip down memory lane with some INTENSE Super Nintendo playing. By the time the sun came up we still hadn't made it past Level 3 of the Lion King game.
I'm seriously obsessed. The game has been consuming my thoughts all day. I even looked up cheats online. Who am I?


Someone get this guy a drink!

Beards and bangs.

Extreme gaming.

Starting tomorrow your favorite duo will be separated for ten whole days. However, we will be keeping the love alive in Houston and Austin...so hit us up.

Blind Man's Beer

Warm whiskey cider, cold beer and wild boys have always been one of our favorite recipes for disaster. We are proud to present the newest addition to our family of drinking games: Blind Man's Beer.

Play at your own risk.

Zach and the monocle.

Nina and the blown glass.

Winter time not only marks the end of finals, but the begining of cold nights made extra special with whiskey (God's heater) and fires. If you know us at all, you will completely understand our connection with the "backyard fire". It's a chance for all of our male friends to feel that bonus burst of testosterone as they construct the perfect outdoor furnace and us girls to stay warm in the below freezing (no seriously, below freezing) Texas nights.

As a supplement to the extremem weather, and a reward for all the dudes' hard work, Lindsey and I make a magical concoction of love and alcohol...whiskey cider. The recipe has been long kept a secret, however, you are all in for a treat. Today (aka a noteworthy moment in history), we will reveal our infamous recipe for whiskey cider...

Make it.
Enjoy it.
Keep warm.

2 quarts of SIMPLY APPLE (or any other pure apple juice, concentrates won't work folks!)
1 orange
1 package of cinnamon sticks
1/2 package of Imperial cinnamon hearts

Heat 1 1/2 quarts of Simply Apple on medium heat in a large sauce pan. Slice the orange into circles and add to the brew. Add cinnamon sticks and hearts. Let simmer for thirty minutes. Put one shot (OR MORE) into mugs and add two ladles of cider.

Finals are done, and we are making a comeback...
Buy us a drink.  Give us a kiss. 
See all you night owls soon.

As many of you know, Lindsey and I enjoy a wide variety of music. Some good. Some not. Some downright annoying. Through thick and thin, good taste and bad, these songs really tug at our drunken heartstrings. We will turn them up. We will dance. Yes, we may even go as far as making you listen to them twice in a row. With that being said, I present to you the five official songs that define the Mia and Lindsey friendship:

1. "Jolene" - Dolly Parton
M:We've both been Dolly. Sad. We've both been Jolene. Oops.
L: My UNT ID password is dollyparton<3<3.>  Seriously.  Log in.

2. "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere" - Neil Young & Crazy Horse
M: Touches on a happier time and place filled with boxed wine, chain smoking, and amateur film making...
L: This will forever be our Denton anthem.  Love/hate/love.  It sounds the best on Mia's porch in the spring.

3. "I Get Around (Midnite Juggernaut Remix)" - Dragonette
M: Hailey's. Tangos. Me drunkenly spinning alone on the dance floor?
L: I'm pretty sure the only communication I ever have with Jason is telling him to play this song for the second or third time in one night.

4. "Burnin' Up" - The Jonas Brothers
M: You can call us annoying and ridiculous, but it won't change the fact that we have a sick obsession with the JoBros. We know every word to every song and we are not ashamed.
L:  What's not to love?

5. "Blue Letter" - Fleetwood Mac
M: Because we were always too lazy to flip the record.
L: Really?  I definitely just wanted to hear this song again...and again...

90's Night
Denton, TX

What are we all staring at?

The ultimate duo.

Watch your drunken-self folks...you never know what L. Martin + team will catch you doing. Videos that will make you laugh, cry, and question yourself the morning after coming soon...

And will someone please pay to get my gas turned back on??
Its 20 degrees out. I'm really cold.

If you haven't heard the latest project of former Stroke Fabrizio Moretti, then you are definitely missing out. Little Joy is hands down my favorite band to debut in 2008.
Listen to "No One's Better Sake", it is my personal fav off their self titled album, which I have been listening too non-stop since I had the pleasure of seeing them live in Houston over Thanksgiving...if these organ filled tunes don't make you as happy as a clam, well then, I don't know what will.

The holiday season always makes me think about what is truly important to me, what I want out of life and what I should focus on in the coming year. That being said, these are the top 3 things I (Lindsey) would like to find under my tree this year:

1. Edward Cullen (not to be confused with Robert Pattinson)

2. Chuck Bass (not to be confused with Ed Westwick)

3. The Jo Bros
