|Misty <3 Valerie <3 Misty|
When I started this blog last year, I had no idea what I was doing or how to do it. It was pretty confusing at first. And then I met Misty from Misty's Laws. She was pretty much a Goddess to me. And not only did she help show me the way and pimp out my blog, but she also sent me a birthday card with a Sasquatch on it.
|Here is my friend, Sasquatch, trying to reenact the epicness of the card Misty sent me. Don't tell him that it can't be done. He's really trying hard.|
But, she... She, like, mailed the card. With stamps and a postman and shit. One of the best feelings in the world is getting mail that isn't a bill or some crappy piece of junk. Misty is the bees knees, guys. And I was going down to Maryland to meet her!! We had been planning this forever, and it was finally going to happen!
|Even better?? We were meeting during Kenny's Shorts Season!!!!|
And then life got complicated... So this trip came at the perfect time. Even better, I had convinced my partners in crime, Nicole & Rainer, to come along with me. They MADE this journey. Without them, I would probably be crumpled up at the side of I-95 in fetal position dressed as a beagle.
|Rainer, Me & Nicole|
Misty was just as perfect as I dreamed she would be. With her beaming smile and fantastic laugh, she lit up my soul. This was our first meeting, and she had planned the most epic of days... Beginning with a mannequin store.
You read that right.
Misty. Brought. Me. To. A. Mannequin. Store.
|Mannequin Store, guys... MANNEQUIN STORE!!!!|
I can't even right now with the awesomeness of this girl. Seriously. I would post a picture of her right now, but your head would just end up exploding from the pure Epic radiating from her person. It's like she's made up of equal parts Time Lord and TARDIS essence, with a splash of Unicorn and Glitter.
|HEY MANNEQUINS!!! HOW'S IT GOING?!?!|
|That awkward moment when you're the mannequin who is perpetually cold.|
|If only he had a head... Then I would put him next to the alien in my neighbor's yard.|
I even got to bring home a keepsake! I told the guys who worked there that I had my own mannequin shop... But I didn't sell them. No, I just dress them up and keep them on display. Because I love them. Strangely enough, they just nodded their heads as a single tear rolled down their cheeks. The love of mannequins is a language all in itself.
|Me & Mannequin Hand flippin' gang signs and shit.|
That evening, we were off to dinner at a cool English themed pub. All of us together, like a family should be!!! I had chicken, Misty had fish, Nicole had Shepard's pie and Rainer ordered every piece of meat ever created on a sandwich.
|That's, like, 27 layers of meat... and some cheese.|
|Even Rainer stood back in awe at the meal he was about to consume.|
Silence fell among us as the monster was brought on board. We suddenly understood why the waitress had chuckled when Rainer placed his order. But he would not let some girl mock him. Nay! Come hell or high water, Rainer would finish this meal........
|Nom Nom Nom|
He came pretty close too. I would have taken pictures, but then... Alcohol!!! And Presents!!! Because Misty was by soulmate, I bought her the only thing I could have. Stanley Bicher's bitch. I licked it for good luck. And also because I like licking things.
|For luck! And also to make it weird.|
It's true... I have a history of it.
Misty got me the gift of Platypi and Alcohol. Because she knows me. Almost too well... In fact, I'm pretty sure she's outside my window right now. Which is good... Because I left her some bagels and a My Little Pony Thermos full of coffee. (It's under my car behind the right tire, Misty.)
I can't wait to tell you about the rest of our day together later this week. But first, I shall leave you with this. Because this is the closest I will come to meeting the TARDIS. So, I licked it.
