guess who won this one?

in the battle of nyc vs. lindsay.
well....you pick the winner of this situation.

carrie and myself getting in a cab on our way to stay with ELF.
hail the cab.
carrie goes "you go ahead and go first"
OK! i jump in gladly.
throw all 2093820 of my bags in the car.
sliiiidddeeeeeee across the seat.
because that's what you do.
you enter from curb side and sliiiiiddeeee over.

i say "yum..smells like fresh bread!"
i immedately think of the wonderbread factory
that was on my college campus and the smell of the mornings at school.

carrie ignores me.
i say "oh man...I stuck my hand in water, it's wet!"
then...immediately something starts soaking through my jeans.

"what the heck, i sat in a whole puddle?!"
mind you it's pitch black.

i turn backwards in the cab to stare at the seat.
can't see anything.
all the sudden, the street light hits the seat.
old. pink. vomit.

i of course start screaming and laughing so hard i can't breathe.
carrie saw it at that moment too.
she started laughing.
every light we pass shows me once again.
someone elses vomit.

carrie. being the amazing friend she is
"but linds, we'll never get another cab at this hour, it's just 5 min!"
haha so i'm laughing soooo hard.
because we're sooo exhausted.
two weeks of not sleeping.
and this.

she has now rolled the window down and is not looking at me.
as i sit backwards in the cab crying laughing.
so 5 MINUTES later we get out.
we tell the cab driver.
as if he didn't hear me screaming.
he didn't care.
he was probably happy i wiped most of it up.

step out of the car.
all.over.my. pants.
3.bags. covered.

carrie runs ahead and can't look at me.
i am in tears from laughing so hard.
'carrrieeeee wait..helppppp"

haha nothing.
from my dear friend.
ELF cleaned me up when we got upstairs.
Carrie continued to laugh.

haha only me.
as we tried to sleep.
we laid giggling.
at the thought of the pink vomit.
i think it was a blessing.
because we both needed a good laugh.
but a blessing.

NYC won yet again.
come on lindsay.
pull it together.
you're better than puke pants.

lindsay vs. nyc

So we work a lot.
and the trip into work is about 1hr and 15 min.
so ummm that's a good chunk of sleeping time there.
i take fulllll advantage of that.
if you're a close friend you'll already know where this is going.

so i sleep every morning on the bus.
ya know, because NO ONE sits by me anyways.
sometimes i'm awaken by my head jerking.
hah you know what i'm talking about.
i do it on the plane all the time too.
you're dreaming and all the sudden you jerk and wake yourself up.
anywho so i sleep but always wake up when we pull into port authority (my bus stop in the city)

well...today i put on my headphones.
because i just bought matt hires album
and..well...i didn't wake up.
on my own that is.
i wake up to the tap on my shoulder
a cute guy none the less.
walking off the bus.
"we're here!"
bahahahah yeah


i start laughing
that's what i do when i feel awkward.
i just laugh
still half asleep walking off the bus laughing
bed head.

and if that wasn't bad enough.
the bus driver starts moving the bus closer to the door
WHILE i'm getting off.
he yells at me
but i'm so out of it i don't know what's going on

so i'm laughing the whole way to work.
mind you i haven't had coffee yet.
and i go to wash my hands.
because ny is dirty.
and i look in the mirror.
and this is tmi.
my zipper on my jeans may or may not have been up.

bahaha i only share because i hope everyone realizes what a hot mess i am
and laughs.
i need someone to take care of me please.
i clearly have lost it and can't do it anymore.

you win this time nyc.

today is Dyl Beans 2nd bday.
two years ago.
the world became awesome.

she eats cake like a lady.

her new bike.
she was testing her helmet out
hitting her head
to make sure it worked.
she's like her mom.

if you're looking for love...

i think this is what it looks like...

when your sister from another motha'
tells you she is moving.
and even though you want to selfishly cry.
happiness wells up because you know
it's time for her to shine her light on
all the elderly in florida.

when your aunt sends you a video
telling you which college your cousin
is going to go to and you start crying
because she's growing up!
summer time fun 4 life!

when your baby brother
wants to spend time with you
even though he's 16.
he'll still watch harry potter with you.
on a friday night.
just because you asked.

a mary lemonpoppyseed muffin.
can bring you so much happiness.
for one friend.
and the times you've shared.
at 7:30am
ok 8:15am because we're both always late.
crying and laughing over coffee.
and a muffin.

when you can't think of anything more exciting
than going to your nieces 2nd birthday.

when a friend is going through a rough patch
and another one shows up after a 12 hour shift
with tulips, pizza and cake.

when lady gaga and a lady with a scarf
are at your show cheering for you.
surprising you just to see the look on your face.

when your dad tells you
that you're different than the rest.
and he believes in you when you forget how.

when one of your closest friends is getting married and you can't even
begin to explain to her how happy you are for them.

seeing your sister become a mom.
naturally amazing at it.

i laugh a lot
and am loved a lot.
that is all.
