rl and 30 day memes  
Hi there flist! I hope you're all managing to survive Monday! I am in a pretty good mood. The weather is nice outside, and not as hot as yesterday. Speaking of yesterday, I had a lot of fun with my friend. I was kinda hoping I could get her to drive, but somehow, I ended up doing driving, lol. It wasn't so bad though.

We started out by going to this dessert place called "Sugar Butter Flour". The funny thing is that my mom and I wanted to check it out after we went to dinner on my sister's birthday because it was right next to the restaurant, but we resisted. The one my friend and I went to was another one though. It was pretty good. I was sad at first, because their chocolate cakes had dark chocolate and I don't like that. Then, we talked to the lady there, and she said she didn't like dark chocolate either, but theirs was mild and not bitter. I tried this mocha chocolate cake and she was right!

Then, we went to the mall. We had this other friend who was going to join us (she practically invited herself, but that's another story) at 4 (my friend and I met at 3). But we decided that we'll go to a mall and have her meet us there. Anyway, she called closer to 4:30 (she's ALWAYS late, may I add) and the mall we were at was further away. So she wasn't sure anymore. But we decided that we're coming back to a mall closer by later on and she could meet us there and join us for dinner too.

The mall was packed! I think because it was so hot outside, everyone wanted to be inside! SO crowded. I got lucky with parking though, which made me happy. Ooh, and the mall had a Coach outlet and they had a sale. I got this awesome bag. It's dark brown and I love it. If you didn't know, I adore bags. And shoes. And perfume. Yes, I am a girly girl. Don't judge me. ;)

After we were done, we went to the other mall. Unfortunately, it's Sunday and we forgot it closes at 7. We only got there around 6:15. It was okay, because we didn't have much to do. We hung around Macy's and checked out Express. There is this cute brown jacket that I really want, but they don't have my size. It's a summer style though, so they say they're getting more. I'm going to call their other stores and see if one of them has it. Our other friend was slow (surprise, surprise) and by the time she got there, we were going to dinner. It was okay though ... we just met at the restaurant and had a good dinner.

All in all, it was a good day. It would've been better if my Lakers hadn't lost AGAIN, but you take what you can get. It's fine. They're heading back to LA now and I still believe in them.

Dude, I have to work on my 12days_of_clois fic. I'm glad I still have a couple of weeks, because I seriously have no inspiration and no plot. LOL :D

Moving on, it's Day 5 of my shipping meme.

Day 05 - The pairing with the least chemistry?

I honestly believe that chemistry is subjective. There are a lot of ships that I feel don't have chemistry, but I came up with one that works for this after some thought.



Joey and Rachel from Friends. I swear, it was like the show was just on a quest to make sure everyone hooked up once! I just didn't see any chemistry with this ship, not to mention that they were all wrong for each other. SO glad that didn't last. :\

Now, it's Day 6 of my music meme.

Day 06 - A song that reminds you of somewhere

Some of these topics are really hard! Hmm, I'll go with Home by Daughtry. It's not exact, but it kinda reminds me of how homesick I felt sometimes in my apt in LA. I know I was still in the same state but still, 300 miles, or 3000 miles ... it doesn't make a difference. It isn't home. :\

I totally agree on the Joey/Rachel thing. I loathed that whole storyline. I still cringe when I think about it, it makes me so angry. lol

LOL Your icon is SO appropriate!

And yes, I'm SO with you. It was really stupid and pointless.

I'm with you! I like to pretend it never happened. :\

I totally know what you mean. I wouldn't watch those episodes again either. :\

I always had a soft spot for Joey/Phoebe in the early seasons, but never Joey/Rachel.
*nods* I can see Joey/Phoebe in early seasons (not later, because I adore Mike), but Joey/Rachel just made no sense, IMHO. She belongs with Ross! LOL ;)

I love your icon btw. :D

OOHHHH Cake and a Coach purse?! Sounds like you had a fantastic time! :D

And OMG I feel you on the Rachel/Joey thing. I absolutely despised it. Can't stand the reruns from that period either. SOOOO sad they went there. I hate TV shows doing dating by proximity.

I know, perfect combo, right? And I did! :D

It was just so pointless, especially since it was obvious Ross and Rachel would end up together. It was like they were just having a relationship just for the sake of it.

Same here. It works sometimes (e.g. Monica/Chandler) but Joey/Rachel was just really wrong. :\

I'm glad you had a fun day! :D

ITA completely about Joey/Rachel. I just can't fathom how people thought they were a good pairing. I'm not even a Ross/Rachel fan, but something about J/R just rubbed me the wrong way. *shudders*

"Home" is an awesome song! I have about 6 or 7 different songs named "Home" on my iPod, heh. ;)
svgurl: clark smilesvgurl on June 15th, 2010 12:59 am (UTC)
I did, thank you! :)

I don't get people who ship them at all. Joey/Rachel was just wrong, and made no sense. It was like they had a romance just to have one, you know? Btw, did you have any ships on Friends?

Love your icon too! :D

It IS! I adore Daughtry. And yes, there are a LOT of songs with that name, lol

I don't really have any Friends ships. I just liked watching different characters interact. My favourites were Chandler and Phoebe, though. :)
svgurl: clois s8svgurl on June 16th, 2010 02:08 am (UTC)
Gotcha. I love them all, though Chandler and Phoebe are awesome! :D

It's okay. I won't judge. All of my friends are girly girls ;). I'm more a nerdy girl--I love my one purse and refuse to let it go to buy another one.

I was scared when they first gave off the idea of Rachel and Joey because I knew they were gonna stretch the story line out for a while...and it just felt wrong from the beginning.

LOL You're like my sister then. Though she does like shopping for clothes! :)

Yup, exactly! IT was never good. They were just hooking up people for the sake of it, and I was only too happy when it was over.

You know, I saw someone on tumblr with the exact same answer to Day 5 yesterday.

Maybe it's because Joey/Rachel was the worst idea ever...

Really? And yes, that's probably why. I don't get why people ship it. It doesn't make any sense. :\
miss sullivanburningqueen on June 15th, 2010 03:25 am (UTC)
Yeah. For a second there I thought you had a tumblr and I was just too slow to have noticed.
svgurl: clark s5svgurl on June 15th, 2010 03:39 am (UTC)
LOL No, I don't have one. But it's nice to know that I am not the only one who doesn't think this ship had any chemistry. :)

Hee, I LOVE dark chocolate. In fact, it's the only chocolate I'd happily finish a whole bar on my own in one go. Other kinds I can only tolerate a few small chunks at a time.
Really? My sister loves dark chocolate, but it's usually too bitter for me. I love milk chocolate. :D

"Home" is such a wonderful song. My friend's mom once translated it in our native tongue and dedicated it to her when she was away studying in Russia. I tell you, it got the rest of us teary-eyed as well! :p
Aww, that's so sweet of your friend's mom! :D

That's awesome that we both agree on this! Like you said, I enjoy both their characters but they're just wrong together. :D

Urgh, I agree so much with you on the Joey/Rachel lack of chemistry.

Nice to see you're doing great and having fun :)

I am, thanks! :D
