blogswapAs part of 20 Something BloggersBlog Swap 4,” my blog has been taken over today by Little Erin from Erin Uncensored, and I must say, her post can resonate with ANY 20-something chick. Since we are both participating in Grace in Small Things, we stuck to that theme, so check out her post below, then head over to my blog swap post for today – at her blog, of course – and check out what I’m most grateful for this moment!

Today I am most grateful for all the hot throbs I grew up with.december0741

The pictures of Landon in the last post really got me thinking about having crushes on celebrities (yes, I still have a crush on Landon ever since he was first on the Real World). When I was a kid, I think I had more crushes on male celebrity heart throbs, than I did on the boys I knew in real life. Thinking back to the scrawny, pubescent little boys I once knew, I can see why.  

I guess I have always had a pretty vivid imagination. I never really saw crushing on a celebrity as a problem. I was convinced I would marry Jonathan Taylor Thomas or Jordan Knight. I just figured that it would be tough for me to meet them seeing as I was a little nobody from the east coast, and these studs where either performing all over the world or sunning themselves in good ol’ California. I figured more than likely I would probably meet them on vacation and we would fall madly in love. Then my family and I would move to the west coast and live a life in paradise. Oh, childhood dreams. I guess I still have hope. Katie Holmes got Tom Cruise, Ashton Kutcher got Demi Moore. Maybe I will one day end up dating Jonathan Taylor Thomas. A girl can only dream. 

Seeing as you all are probably not that interested in my childhood fantasies, I figured including some pictures of the previous loves of my life. Hope they bring back fond memories for you all.

20SB Blog Swap 3

Hey all, MinD here.
As part of the 20 Something BloggersBlog Swap 3,” I’ve traded places today with the one, the only,
WishMeWell from Bored Thoughts.
So check out his post below (even if he does root for the Giants, puh), and don’t forget to go check out my blog for today over on his site. I’ll be back in due time with something mildly fantastic!

Hey There! So this is totally not who you’re used to reading. Don’t be afraid, Min-D is all well and good, and she’s posting where i usually write, Bored Thoughts. I am wishmewell, I inexplicably don’t use my real name blogging, even tho I post pictures of myself on the internet. That’s anonymity for ya!

Well I do have some unfortunate news for all of you. As many of you I’m sure are away, bloggers are sad, lonely, and above all extremely, extremely bitter people. Unfortunately for you, I’m in a good mood this week. I finally got to quit my job, because I got a new, better one! (that sound you hear is me tooting my own horn…i think i’ve used that joke more times this week than ever before). So I’m just not my usual bitter, yet hilarious, self. Well my psyche be dammed, I promised a guest post, and by george, I will deliver a guest post! So now I’m coming to come up with a list of things that just make me irrationally angry.

The first thing that is making me indescribably angry and confused is Twilight. I mentioned this on my blog, but I’m just THAT confused. Especially with the premiere. Apparently girls, like young girls, were cutting their necks so it looked like they had been bitten by a FUCKING VAMPIRE! Seriously? This is making people want to get bitten, by a damn Vampire?! VAMPIRES ARE HORRIFYING! What happened to good old VAMPIRES ARE SCARY style logic? They are the undead. If I write a book about horny teenage zombies that don’t actually wind up having sex will hundreds of thousands of kids buy it….wait a second. That’s an idea! Umm, pretend I never said any of that, and if you happen to see a Zombie novel with a teenage on the cover, umm, buy it.

Another thing that makes me mad (do I sound like a bitter 80 year old, and not a 23) The weather (originality FTW) A lot of this is because I am a supremely lazy person, and I don’t like checking the weather report. I go by what yesterday was like plus what I see out the window. So I figure the temperature will be the same. Unfortunately, over the past month here in New York City (did a New York blogger really get this far into a post without mentioning that they lived there? Is that a new record?) its been ridiculous. It was pushing 60 degrees on Thursday and Friday. It was about the same on Saturday, just rainy (but i knew that! Thanks window). Do you know what it is right this second? 35 degrees!!! Are you kidding me? I can’t plan for a 25 degree shift! So because of these few days everyone is going to be sick and miserable in the city. Just in time for Thanksgiving! Awesome!

And finally, the one thing that is just getting to me lately? Heroes? I don’t even want to talk about why, but if you watch it, you know what I’m talking about. There was so much promise there. So many ways that show could have been just the best thing ever. Sigh, well at least How I Met Your Mother is still awesome.

Well that wraps it up for me. Tomorrow you will be back to your regularly scheduled programming. Oh, and one more thing, Go Giants!
