Blood, sweat and tears. An evening at Big Pink.

Me (after weeping during an episode of McLoed’s Daughters): What is wrong with me? I’m pretty sure I’m the biggest crybaby ever!

Bridgette: No you’re not. Sean was making fun of me last weekend when a tear ran down my face during Shrek. Shrek-in 3D. Apparently the 3D glasses didn’t hide the tears.

I have mixed feelings about Glee. I like the music and they have some great one liners, but all the drama between the characters is at times frustrating. And maybe that's because a lot of the drama is too closely related to current drama in my life and no I'm not pregnant or am I faking a pregnancy.

How come singles wards have to be as dramatic as high school? Who care if you're popular or who's dating each other! Grrr...I sometimes feel like Josie in Never Been Kissed-aren't I too old for this? Why are you gossiping like a school girl and acting like you're 16?

Anyway, back to the show.

Like in last night's episode entitled "Laryngitis", Rachel gets laryngitis and is afraid she be permanently scarred and will never sing again. For those of you that don't know, too bad and for those of you that do, this was a hard one to watch.


The silver lining in the episode was that it was heavily Rachel-Finn related. Rachel reminds me of myself, except way less annoying, not as pretty or as chesty-but she does remind me of my high school self in that sense. And I like Finn, even though at times I want to strangle him for being such an idiot, but right now he's not being an idiot. He wants Rachel back and he's trying and you know it'll work eventually-she's in love with him. Anyway, he sang this song to her in the episode. Not normally my cup of tea. I'm not a super fan of the song, but right now I'm totally feeling it.

Mother’s Day the Pearce Family Way

First, a lot of this:

Then some face time with one of these:

Watched a few movie trailers, including:
The good, the bad, and the weird-which actually looks kind of good; and
The Human Centipede, which I can’t quite tell if it’s meant to be a horror film or a comedy.

Then I treated my 17 year old sister like one of these:

Watched a little SNL and loved this skit (we heart Bill Hader ;D):

And then finally we left and I showered my amazing mother (who we now call “Lady Mama”-thanks Hannah) with these:
And these:
Happy Mother’s Day Lady Mama!! We love you!!!

I'm so sad I missed this. :(

Vamptastic Updates

For those of you unaware I have a love for the show True Blood-which is weird, because honestly it's not a very good show, but whatever. I found out a few new things:

1. They are doing 6 new mini episodes starting May 2-yay! You all should know I can't wait until June!

2. My favorite on the show-Eric (Yay Team Eric!! LOL.) played by Alexander Skarsgard (yum) is dating Kate Bosworth. WTF? When did this happen? and

3. While researching if that was in fact true I found this article about how they were at Coachella-see Leah, I knew we should have gone!! Damn.

Sometimes, you just want to shoot something.

Sometimes I feel like her-I'm hot tempered, stubborn and can handle myself. Oh , but I can bake a pie.

But those qualities tend to leave one's score with 'em fellers lower than a cellar.

So I guess I'll put my pistols away for the time being and turn the other cheek.

This girl's a trip, but I like the song!

It Makes No Difference

When Whitney left on her mission, I'm pretty sure I cried myself to sleep for a month or two listening to this song. Partially because it's a great love loss song and it's impossible for me not to cry when listening to it, but also it so perfectly described my feelings in that moment. I felt SO alone. We used to joke about how I was Whitney's barnacle, but I really was. I wasn't independent and unless she was around I wasn't outgoing socially. This may be a complete shock to some of you, but I'm kind of a shy person and in some ways when she left I reverted back to the shy girl I was before we were friends.

Then I got better; I realized that a year and a half really wasn't that long, I was capable of making friendships equally as good as the one I have with her and being an independent person really wasn't all that hard.

But recently all of that has been harder for me to accept and maybe it's because I miss my little Whitneykins and I know she'll be back soon, but for some reason this song is speaking to me once again.

A quick side note, I really wish I could have found a clip that started a minute before, because the story told at the beginning of this clip is probably my favorite part of this whole movie. Oh high Rick Danko-you were magic!

Best story this weekend

Prepare yourself for a sweetness overload.

Over the weekend I got to see my cousin Molly and her daughter Bess, who is quite possibly the cutest girl I have ever met. Don't believe me? Well then here's a picture:
Adorable, no?

Anyway, back to the story. Molly told me about a conversation she had with Bess a couple weeks after seeing me at Christmas, which took place while watching some sort of dancing show:

Bess: I could never dance like that....but Sarah could.
Molly: Sarah who?
Bess: My Sarah.
Molly: You mean my cousin Sarah?
Bess: No, my cousin Sarah.

I almost died when she told me this. How sweet is that? "my Sarah". I've never been owned by a child before, but she's so adorable I really don't mind.

Another obligatory Bess shot:

She's so Rockstar!

Always be wary of how you dress for work.

In the past few years my attractiveness has increased exponentially and I’ve had to alter my dress for work accordingly. I never wear high heels or skirts anymore (brings far too much attention to the gams) and I rarely wear jewelry, accessories or super form fitting/low cut tops (for…ahem…a similar reason).

Today, I wore a pink headband with an embellished flower on one side. This was a mistake.

So, there’s a guy that works on my floor that kind of gives me the creeps (not full creeps, just partial) and I’m sure he was just trying to be nice, but it still left me feeling weird.

Let me set the stage, an attractive girl with pretty flower in her hair (that’s me!) walks down the hall towards the bathroom. A mildly creepy man, that is FAR too old for the attractive girl rounds the hallway corner and says:

“Oh hey! You look very pretty with that bow in your hair!”

The attractive girl stumbles through some gracious reply and leaves the hall.

Sometime later the two have another chance meeting in the hall where the mildly creepy man mutters:

“Pretty in Pink!”

The attractive girl stumbles through some gracious reply and leaves the hall, but thinks to herself:

“Thank you, we've established that I'm pretty, but please just go away and leave me alone!”

Trifecta night out and new nicknames

Me: (something bitchy beyond belief) Ugh! Can we just get food now!?!
Leah: Yes, gosh you’re bitchy when you haven’t eaten. You’re like the little shop of horrors plant yelling “FEED ME!!”
Bridgette: That should be you’re nickname!
Me: No!
Leah: Yes!! That’s awesome!
Bridgette: Hey you guys, it’s not “Little Shop of Horrors” it should be “Little Shop of Whores”! Get it? It’s like a pun!
(Sometime Later)
Bridgette: Sarah, would you sell me in your shop?
Me: Of course!!
Bridgette: Good.
Me: Hey, it shouldn’t be “Little Shop of Whores” it should be “Shop of Little Whores” ‘cause we’re tiny!
In Unison: Ahhh yeeaaahhh!!!
(Trifecta Fist bump)

Conversations of late

Me: How do I get in these situations?
Princess Leia: You’re too nice, everyone else just says no!
CocaKoler: Better Bitch than sorry. That’s my motto.

CW: All the boys here and at the UW that I’ve talked to have told me all they’re looking for is a girl that dresses modest and isn’t “scary”.
Me: Well I guess that puts me out of the running.

Princess Leia: Wait, what exactly did he say? Any punctuation or anything?
Me: No punctuation, but the “D” is capitalized.
CocaKoler: Oh, well then if the “D” is capitalized that changes everything…..no, I have no idea.

Princess Leia: He was like “Wait, what did that guy want?” and I wanted to be like “to have sex with Sarah”.

Me: Does anyone mind if I take my skirt off in the car?
Princess Leia: Well if you’re sitting next to Marky-Mark and the Funky Bunch…
Me: Well then I can sit in the front.
Marky-Mark and the Funky Bunch: Hey!
All: Oooh, Mark!

Happy Pi Day!!

Yum! Celebrating Pi day by eating blackberry pie and watching Pushing Daisies is the bestest! :D

I adore this show.

I don't know what made me think of this scene today, but it randomly popped into my head and it made me remember how much I love this show! Enjoy.

Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves

How can you not be pumped for the day when you listen and watch this in the morning?? I'm pretty sure this is going to be an awesome day!

Monday, March 01, 2010

Pretty sure this explains why things never work out for me.

Watch 7:16-7:33-it illustrates my point. Every time I get close to a guy I run away. When I was 14 a boy I liked asked me to dance, I said "no" and literally ran away from him....like out of the building. Things really haven't changed in the 10+ years since that dance.

I break guys’ hearts.

I don't mean to, there's nothing malicious in my doings-I just get scared or self-conscious and run away. Which in the end really only hurts me. ‘Cause all those guys I run away from, while they might be hurt for a time, they always find someone else. And I’m left sitting by myself with a pile of missed opportunities.

But there comes a time in a girl’s life when a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. And this girl’s going to stand still and not run anymore.

Smile Worthy Conversations

Princess Leia: Those shorts are a little short-I can see your ass cheeks, especially when you stick your butt out.
CocaKoler: Wait! Are you wearing underwear?

CocaKoler: The names for female body parts are so pretty. If I didn’t know what “Vagina” meant I’d totally name my daughter that.

(CherBear shows off her bum bum)
CocaKoler: Can I tap that?
CherBear: Uh….no, but you can touch it.
(five minutes later)
CocaKoler: Wait, does “tap that” mean something besides tapping it with my hand? (brief pause followed by awkward silence and then hysterical laughter) oh….hahaha….never mind.

CocaKoler: He’s a pretty popular midget.
Me: No, he’s a dwarf, (points to itty bitty) she’s a midget.
Itty Bitty: Did you just point to me?
Me: Yes. (laughs)
Itty Bitty: Hey!! (Squats a little lower and then in a slightly higher octave) Hey!!

Baird Lennion or Lars B: I hate being the only guy there that doesn’t know a song.
Princess Leia: I didn’t know it.
Baird Lennion or Lars B: Yeah, but you’re not a man.
Princess Leia: Right.
Me: And soon I won’t be.
Princess Leia: Right.
(Awkward silence)
Princess Leia: I don’t think Lars gets the joke.
Me: Just a little transgender joke….no, don’t worry Lars-I’m all woman.
Princess Leia: I’m pretty sure he was worried about that.
Me: Well you never know-I don’t want any rumors started.
Princess Leia: Yeah, Lars is really into starting rumors about people.
Me: (Lars impression) “Hey everyone, guess what I just heard? Sarah used to be a man!”….No, I don’t think people would believe it anyway.
Baird Lennion or Lars B: Yeah, I wouldn’t buy it.

Grammy Awards 2010

I know this was a week or so ago, but I found a couple pictures of the evening’s attire and I have to comment.
I Gleefully post this picture of Lea Michele and pronounce her “best dressed” of the evening. She’s adorable.
Can anyone tell me what happened to Miley Cyrus’ face?
Word to the wise: Never go to the same plastic surgeon as Fergie. Nothing good can come from it!
I am SO digging Katy Perry’s hair, I want to “Betty Page” my mine too! By the way, this dress only looks halfway cute from the back. Very disappointing Katy!
Oh Lady Gaga. Why do you have to be the most ridiculously dressed person ever? I keep defending you to all my friends who think you’re an ugly freak, but if you keep dressing like this I can’t! I love your music, you’re a very talented singer and dancer, but this can’t go on.

And last, but certainly not least: Beyonce. Here’s a clip of her Grammy performance. She AMAZES me-next time she tours here I’m going! I’m so gonna learn that awesome dance move at 4:45. Might get whiplash though. ;D

Betty Grable Gams

The gorgeous Betty Grable, known for her great gams.

I adore my legs; obviously, I wouldn’t put them as my blog picture if I didn’t. I also love pinups, if I had been born in the 20-30’s I would have been one, which is why last Saturday I wore these fabulous shorts to a party.
Purchased at Forever 21 a few weeks ago. On a side note, I’m loving the Rockabilly section at the “21 always”, it makes me want to dye my hair black and get a few tattoos. Anyway, back to my story. Last night Allen wrote on my wall about a conversation he had with another girl at the party. It went as follows:
Girl: Is that a skirt or shorts?
Allen: shorts.
Girl: (long pause while judging you) they are pretty short aren't they?
Allen: well when you have Sarah's legs you're allowed. It's in the bible.
Girl: (longer pause while judging me) Could I pull off shorts like that?
Allen: No. Only Sarah can pull off shorts like that.

There are so many parts of this dialogue that I love. First, all the judging-I know I’m not the most modest girl, but I’d rather be naked so they’re lucky I’m as covered as I am. Second, the bible bit-I must have missed that part. And lastly, the fact that Allen told some girl that she didn’t have nice enough legs to wear those shorts. I know it’s mean, but it still made me laugh-a lot.

On a completely different subject, while looking for a picture of those fabulous shorts I ran into this!!
Oh sequined bodysuit, you will be mine!

Things said this past week that have made me laugh

PH: Cheerio all!
ME: No Priscilla if you want to be taken seriously as a citizen you have to start talking like and American.
PH: Ah, no man! Cheerio, see you in the morning. Goodnight Thomas. Oh, Thomas...how do you say your name in American?
TY: Thomas.
PH: Oh.....it's the same. I thought it was going to be something weird like "Toe-moss".

ME: Oh look Leah we're driving by so and so's house (name has been omitted for privacy purposes). Hey Blankety Blank!!
Both: F*** you!!! (Flips off building).

ME: So, I saw Cherilyn...she's got some color and her hair is blonder.
MA & PB: Yeah?
ME: Ugh, I was looking at pictures from the summer and I was so much darker then!
PB: Really??
ME: Uh...yeah...
PB: Really?? Your hair gets darker in the sun?
ME: Uh...no...but my skin does.

PH: (While playing with my hair) You should wear you hair up more. You have such a lovely neck and you're hiding it behind all this hair.
