cause you said the brains I had went to my head

I love going over to my friend Nancy's house, and I'll tell you why. Not only does she live in a grown-up house with a zillion rooms (including an office and a fancy dining room and a Wii room and, I don't know, all the other normal rooms), BUT she is always prepared for any event. For instance, just in case you need freshly made popcorn, she has a for-real-honest-to-goodness popcorn machine on her kitchen counter. If you're in need of a frosty beverage, just open her fridge and you'll find everything from Pinot Grigio to PBR. And if Nancy invites you over for hot dogs, don't be surprised when she pulls out all the fixings. It's not just ketchup and mustard at Nancy's house, oh no. It's ketchup and regular mustard and spicy mustard and two kinds of relish and pickles and Skyline chili and Skyline hot sauce and all the shredded cheese you can fit on your wiener (HAHAHAHA).

It's no surprise that Nancy's house is stocked with whatever you need. When I lived next door to her in college, we were always in her room, even though in order to sit anywhere (couch, bed, floor, didn't matter), you'd have to clear off a stack of clutter. But it was worth it, because she always had some new contraption to try, like that time she bought a cotton candy machine. Or that other time she bought a sno-cone maker. Or that other time she bought a popcorn popper. Or that other OTHER time when she bought a deep-fryer.

So of course Nancy's house is the best house ever and now that she's a wife, it's always free of clutter. Heh. Well, at least it is when we come over. Last night, after a delicious dinner of hot dogs, potato salad, and corn on the cob (which I did not partake in, because I don't like getting it stuck in my teeth SHUT UP LEAVE ME ALONE), she made us Bazooka Joe drinks (see?!) and asked if we wanted to play Rock Band. And after playing for, I don't know, a couple hours, we opened the next batch of songs to see that MY LIFE WAS NOW COMPLETE because it included Don't Look Back in Anger. Which I sung. On expert. And still scored 86%. I have no idea how the scoring works for the vocals once you start moving past the Easy setting, but I'm pretty sure my Expert 86% means I'm ready to go on tour. So, Liam. Noel. Call me. We'll talk.

A Wii room? Deep fryer? PBR!?!? Can I be Nancy's friend too?

(Seriously Nancy - call me)

You had a deep fryer in your DORM ROOM?

Jennie! said...

GSR, my friends are your friends.

h!a! not MY dorm room, NANCY'S dorm room. And it was a sorority house. Heh.

You can call me, 'Sir' said...

Ok, Jennie!, this is ridiculous. First it's the $1 burgers at the place that offers $1 burgers. Now you go and mention Skyline chili. You're making me yearn for Ohio, and that's just...God, it is so uncalled for you need to stop the madness right now how dare you.

STOP MAKING ME YEARN!

Clearly I need to get out of the house and meet more people. Nobody that I know has a Wii room.

kat! said...

HOW DARE YOU!

hee.

Jennie! said...

Sir, I'm sorry. They sell Skyline chili at the grocery stores around here. I could send you some!

Vahid, the Wii room is the most magical room of all the rooms.

kat! BWAAHAAHAAA! I keep forgetting to say that more often. How dare I.

Nancy's house sounds awesome.

I'm so proud of your singing skills-- you should totally challenge Oasis to a duel.

(And why am I the first to ask?: just how much shredded cheese can you fit on your wiener?)

Jennie! said...

mg! turns out you can fit A LOT of cheese on a wiener.

Ashley said...

Haha, Jennie, you made Sir yearn for Ohio. Actually, I kind of am, too. Skyline chili is yummy.

scott said...

Wow. That's a lot of shredded cheese. Man. I mean, a lot.

Hello, Jennie.

Heidi said...

She also had chili dog mustard!
Nancy's house is the best house of all the houses now that you mention it.

Sure, Tamara has a work out room and a fun room, but no Wii room...that's just her living room.

Um, the link to the song? Yeah, it's to a wiki definition of "don", which, as I see it, has nothing to do with the song. I'm just sayin'. But aside from that, I think Nancy needs to have us all over to her magic house for dinner on the evening of your singing debut. We'll TiVo it and everything so you can watch it later.
