“You love the Red Sox. But have they ever loved you back?”
Oh, and thanks to this girl for inspiring me in this post, and in my life.
She’s a HUGE Red Sox fan (DUH!)
and I wouldn’t be the person I am without her.
But MOST importantly, I wouldn’t have watched the movie without her.
PS. I have thought a lot about this idea of hobbies/interests (ie Natasha Bedingfield) getting in the way of REAL life. Check it stat:
PPS. In the end, Jimmy Fallon’s character gets his act together, gets the girl, gets to the game, AND the Sox win the 2004 World Series. Every once in a while, EVERYONE WINS! Take that, Curse of Bambino!

Darnie. Those letters are special to me; they are my (and Kanye’s!) initials.
The “K” sound is made by “qu,” as in quince (“15”, which IS a good bildungsroman Tay-tay song).
The “W’ sound is made by “ue” as in abuelo (“grandfather,” as in my grandfather Ernest)
Kinda cool, I guess. Still, I wouldn’t mind if these letters find their way into mainstream Spanish someday.
First bra? Flimsy piece of fabric.
First kiss? Nope.
First boyfriend? Boyfriend Schmoyfriend.
FIRST HAIR EXTENSIONS!
Not bad here. But 21 year old self, if you only knew the great things that lay in your hair future 🙂
BYU Fall of 2006, I spoke the following words with complete and utter sincerity:
“My email is AmericanGirl, but now that I’m in college
I’m thinking about changing it to AmericanWoman.”
And Melissa never let me forget it 🙂
I’m an All-American rebel making my big get-away…
