plum head of the week 2.26.08

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

i first met teen on move in day freshman year of college at the university of dayton in 1998 - oh my god we have been friends for over 10 years. shit.

her and her roommate diva (who also ended up being a great friend of mine), lived down the hall from me. i vividly remember these two girls that looked nothing like the girls where i had come from, they had on really short skirts and tank tops and were cheerleading. literally cheerleading in the hallway. i'm like who are these sluts goofballs?

little did i know that teen would ended up becoming one of my very best friends of all time.

teen is someone that has no problem yelling at you. as she would literally smack the shit out of me when i did something stupid. i got a few swipes in too. aside from living on the same floor freshman year we also lived together in a house on lowes for our junior and senior year of college. we spent a lot of time together. but i mean we all in did college, it's not like we ever went to class.

after college we became even closer. although i basically had to because she broke into hives when she had to say goodbye to me after college. so i felt bad not talking to her. ha. teen also tried to go to mackinac island with us after college for the summer, she ended up only lasting one night, the smell of horse poop and fudge were too much for her. hilarious.

to this day we still see each other often because thankfully cleveland and pittsburgh are so close. her and diva owe me a visit next (it's totally my turn)!

at the end of the day, it is having people like teen in my life that make it fun, interesting and complete. loyalty is key and i know that she will always be there for me.

love you girl!

  1. alexa, do you bleed red and blue? Go Flyers! I am obssesed with your blog. I hate that you started writing this and now every hour I check it and see if anything is new. I am sure my company is checking my internet usage and is saying what the eff! thanks for making me the plum head, love ya!

  2. First of all, Teen, you were a CHEERLEADER???? I never knew. You must have been the biggest bad ass cheerleader in Pburgh, that is for sure!
    Good call on the Red Extended Cab - that was one of the funniest/scariest moments of my life. It is also a story in itself of how she GOT the pick up truck! I love that you went to Mackinac for a night. Then all your emails or phone calls were to us said "get out of there". Hilarious! You are great Teen! Hope I get to see you sometime soon.

  3. hello!

  5. Teen, remember you are coming to visit soon and we are going to Lanning's. So things are getting more serious with "the beau".... Miss ya, XOXO

  6. Awww I love these...that would probably be why I shamelessly stole it from you...but my friends and families answers are not quite as good as yours. hmphf.
    I'm always very excited to read that someone found my blog from yours! And now I'm even getting myspace friends!
    Oh Alexa...we're soul sisters and we didn't even knnow it! news, I am not going to be flying to Vegas...I know, you're sad. me too. we'll figure something out.

  7. poo poo: yes, i was a cheerleader, believe it! i actually was one of the captains for 3 out of 4 years in high schoool. who would have thought.

    Jenn: definitely send postcards. as far as tuesday's...just a weird day of the week.

    Stepho: Let's make plans. My April is wide open.

    Little Bull: After I wrote that I thought that girl is going to think I am nuts or a stalker but i am not just a friend of Alexa's. Your blog is entertaining.
