Two Geeks in a Pod

Ever had a friend who has zero problem making a gigantic asshole out of herself with you? On a college Friday night while everyone else is out and about drinking copious amounts of beer but you wanted to stay in and make cards with rubber stamps (I was such a slut in college) and your bestie did, too (I think the love of craft making on weekends kind of sealed our friendship forever fate). Or instead of putting your best black pants on for a Saturday night out (with no coat on in an Iowa December while walking to the bars), you two decided to give being in a band a whirl instead and play air drums and a mean air guitar to Journey songs?

Friday night fun night in Slater Hall

Friday night fun night in Slater Hall. Yeah I know, we oozed hip and cool.

Ever had a friend that hid what you thought was a double chin (WTF was I worried about back then? Now, I might need the assistance) in photos for you?

It ain't easy being cheesy.

Ever had a friend dork out with you while studying in the sun, trying to scope out boys on Sunday afternoons (I apparently thought that washing one’s hair and putting makeup on was not necessary while trying to land a boyfriend – and I didn’t even have a booze hangover – I had a crafting hangover. Jesus).

Fashion forward study buddies

Ever had a gal pal who didn’t mind that you framed a picture where her eyes were shut (I’m such a sweet friend) because you thought the rest of the crew looked like they were having fun (and extremely schnockered up) on her birthday?

Eyes wide shut

Eyes wide shut.

Ever had a friend where you thought it necessary to share the same hairstyle?

Grown up?

I know! Let’s cut our hair so it looks like we’re trying to grow it out.

Ever had a friend that loved the holidays as much as you – making them all the more memorable?


Santa, where the F are you?

Ever had a friend you don’t get to see very often but when you do, you pick up right where you left off no matter how much time has passed between visits?

Ladies who lunch

Ladies who lunch like they just did it yesterday.

Ever had a friend who knows your best stories and lived a lot of them with you? Lucky us.

Happy Birthday Tdawg!

    So that is who knows all your dirty secrets! Wait, you just told them all (being a young nerd that blossomed into a beautiful Blogger with a Mr Bear! Speaking of which, where is his honorable mention? Better fix it before he reads this!

    • Well, I didn’t have any photos of Tdawg and the Bear (and my friend can’t stand cats, so Teddy would naturally maul her and barf all over her clothes/purse/belongings) so I left his portion out. And yes, yes I will pay!
      And, don’t let my sparkly background fool you…I’m still pretty nerdy these days!

    I think it’s likely I had a friend or two like that but my memories from back then are a bit murky and it’s kind of a blur so…
