this is probably why i dont have a boyfriend

friday night jenny and i went to a local show. nothing fancy, just our friends the king is dead playing in hermosa. and during their set, they decided to take a break from playing for a round of musical chairs. 

yes. musical chairs. played by the five or six most hardcore guys at the show, and me, 125 pounds of peroxide blonde, no makeup, fluffy miniskirt, pointy flats, flagrant disregard of social expectations, and wicked musical chair skills, who isnt afraid to not only be the only girl in any given situation, but to kick the asses of guys not only larger, but with more street cred, than me. 

in the end, i got second place, losing to the guy that guy that i hate because he almost breaks my foot or some other body part at every show i go to. 

maybe, if i knew my place, i wouldnt be so lonely. but i definitely wouldnt have nearly as much fun.

You remind me of me when I was younger. Not that I'm that old. (26)I guess I would say that our thoughts are similar, or at least when I was your age.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I found you in an Etsy forum and your blog is one of the very few that I actually read more than one sentence. Fun, edgy and realistic.
