We hope you have a fantastic Valentines day. You should know that we LOVE Valentines Day.  So here’s a link to some Valentines Day songs, and if your really bored then here is another old Valentines Day post about different types of love.


As a special bonus today is also Chinese New Year! Year of the Tiger. I’ve been getting some hilarious poorly translated emails from all my Chinese friends. It’s really pretty enjoyable.  Plus I’ve always loved this holiday. Here’s a link to learn how to make a paper lantern.

I know people probably really look forward to hearing our goals for the new year as they are usually pretty great. Here’s the 2010 version.

  • Wear crazier clothing. In Asia they wear awesome clothes (minus the Hello Kitty stuff). Who wants to be conservative and boring? Not us.
  • Take a road trip to Seattle and listen to Hello Seattle the ENTIRE time we are there.
  • Go to more concerts. Concerts are always a good time.
  • Have initialed T-shirts again. We used to have pink t-shirts with an S and a K on them respectively.  They were awesome.
  • Make up for lost time. We’ve been on separate sides of the world. Literally and figuratively.  Time to….. make mix CDs, drive people crazy, shop, go to midnight movies, and think up crazy plans just like the old days!
  • Return our blog to it’s former glory. Now that we are both home again it’s time to blog!

Happy Birthday Kelli

Here are just some random things I’ve been thinking about lately

  • Kelli and I were just wondering… what is up with the Little Caesar’s guy having chest hair?! That is just gross, when I want some pizza I do not want to be thinking about chest hair. Also he basically has no neck his body just sort of  molds into a head.
  • I am BEYOND ready for the summer! Summer is the best.  Finals are the worst. I’m hoping this last month of school speeds by. I can’t stop thinking about pool days, sunglasses, and river rafting. I can not wait.
  • I wonder how Anne Frank feels about the whole world reading her diary as a school assignment.
  • iCarly is a pretty great show.
  • It sort of bothers me when people say “chillin” or “he’s way chill” I don’t know why.
  • If ever you see crate paper on sell for 10 cents…. you should buy it. Trust us.
  • Golf is boring.
  • When ever it rains it should also lightening. I love lightening. Don’t know why.

Other things that have happen lately

  • Easter. Easter is great. Mostly because dying eggs is a great thing to do in your spare time. I personally think I might just start dying all my eggs year round.
  • We took my little sister to see Hannah Montana movie this weekend (read: forced her to go with us so we wouldn’t look lame). It’s a winner. (Also we didn’t look as lame as my brother and his 3 friends)
  • We’ve been in game mode this weekend. Cranium, Mafia, Scum, etc. Games are the best.

April Fools day is a great holiday mostly because it’s fairly pointless and gives you permission to pull pranks on people with impunity. Also apparently in the past it has caused some problems when actual news stories are released on April 1st and people don’t believe them, because they think it’s just a joke. Some pranks we noticed around the web…

  • Youtube has it set up so if you click on a video on your home page (recommendations, featured videos, subscriptions etc) both the video and the text load upside down.
  • Google put up some weird thing called CADIE. Which reccomends you to weird sites and places on google maps. If you google image search CADIE reccomends some of her fave search terms including LOLcats, Rainbows,  Bunnies, and Unicorns.
  • Also on Google if you search “worst band in the world” it will come up with “See results for Creed” which is hilarious. If you go to the languages they’ve added several new ones like “Pigg Latin,” “Hacker,” and “Elmer Fudd.”
  • Gmail added a button called “Gmail Autopilot” which apparently reads and replys emails for you, and even takes into account relationships. Like if someone sends you an aggressive email it will “terminate” that relationship for you.

Obviously more websites should be like Google. Like maybe Wikipedia could fill it’s self with lies! (oh wait)

March Madness

The other day Kelli and I were talking about how March is sort of just not really the best month. I mean first off the weather is awful. It’s bipolar or something. It was wonderful and warm just the other day. In fact we both busted out the flip flops, but alas there was snow on the ground this morning. Also at this point I think everyone is just really sick of school, maybe that’s just me, and possibly that’s just all the time, but I am particularly sick of it right now as we just got done with midterms…. So in order to counter act the inevitable depression you are feeling now that you realize that March is lame here is a list of things to celebrate in March

Weird Holidays in March:

March 1st-  Peanut Butter Lover’s Day
March 2nd- Old Stuff Day
March 9th- Panic Day
March 11th- Johnny Appleseed Day (note to Freddy the Fish: My boyfriend)
March 12th- Alfred Hitchcock Day (I will celebrate this one if I remember)
March 17th- Submarine Day
March 19th- Poultry Day (How did we NOT know this existed Madigan?!?!)
March 22nd- National Goof-off Day
March 25th- Waffle Day (to make up for me missing Pancake day in Febuary)
March 26th- Make Up Your Own Holiday Day
March 30th- I Am In Control Day (not sure how this works out if everyone thinks it applies to them)
