Tales From the FF 2004: When Life Imitates Art…

Posted in FF 2004, Friends, Fun with Entourage, Hip-Hop Mama, Must See TV, Rants at 8:23 am by Faith

I’ve been pretty forthcoming about the fact that I’m a big Entourage fan. I’ve been surprised at how quickly dialogue from the show has made it’s way into my daily vocab, however. Most of the lines I’ve seemed to have adopted have come from my favorite character, one Mr. Johnny Drama. However, you have to admit that it’s always a bit interesting when life imitates art.

Case in point: I was driving with Hip Hop Mama down in “the Valley” the other day. As we were cruising down the road, I noticed someone tailgating me, despite the fact that I was driving well above the speed limit:

Faith: Is it really necessary for this guy to drive UP my ass?
Hip-Hop Mama: (laughing)
Faith: (watching the guy in the rear view, getting more and more agitated) Seriously! This is effin’ ridiculous!
Hip-Hop Mama: (still laughing)
Faith: (had enough– yanks her car over to the side of the road and lets tailgating vehicle pass before charging back on the road and tailgating the vehicle that just passed her.)
Hip-Hop Mama: Okay, Faith. Do we really want to be picking a fight with Deliverance here?
Faith: (agitated) Was it really necessary for them to be driving UP MY ASS?
Hip-Hop Mama: Okay, settle down, Drama!
Faith: (starting to chuckle) Hold me back, Turtle. (car in front of her slams on his brakes, causing Faith to slam on the brakes in the FF 2004– Faith and Hip-Hop Mama lurch forward) ….FUCKING VALLEY, MAN!
Hip-Hop Mama: (fresh round of laughter…. after a moment, Faith joins in.)

…I can’t make this stuff up.

Good Morning! (aka Tales From The FF 2004: Part II)

I see some pretty bizarre things from the driver’s seat of my car. Today was no exception. I was running a bit late to class, so I was tailgating more than I probably should have been. In any case, I was following this full-sized pickup truck. As I was tailgating, I noticed that there was only one occupant in the vehicle; a twenty-something male (or at least the back of his head looked twenty-somethingish.)

Anyway, I continue to follow him for a few miles. As we stop at a stoplight, I see something unusual. A woman’s head very clearly popped up next to the man. I did a double-take and started laughing. A quick glance at the clock confirmed what I already knew: It was 8:20am.

I guess SOME people know how to start their days off with a smile…

Tales From The FF 2004

Posted in FF 2004, Hotties, Life, Random at 10:48 pm by Faith

I was driving to school this morning. I had been pulling an all-nighter, as it sometimes happens when you procrastinate and have your back up against a deadline. Anyway, as I was in the FF 2004 at a stoplight, blasting my current song of the hour (partly because it’s loud/fast and partly because I REALLY like it) I saw this young guy walking down the sidewalk. He had brown hair that kinda flopped over his right eye. He was probably in his early/mid twenties and was walking with a backpack on his back.

Anyway, as he was walking down the street, the bottom ripped out of his backpack and his books fell out onto the sidewalk. Papers went EVERYWHERE. I was totally amused by this situation, but responded in my usual manner: clapping my hand over my mouth as I gasped and giggled. As he was crouched down picking up papers, he happened to glance up and catch my eye. I gave him a sympathetic smile, to which I was given the BIGGEST, MOST BEAUTIFUL smile I had seen in weeks. Like, we’re talking Tom-Welling-as-Clark-Kent type of smile here. The fact that the entire situation screamed “Clark Kent” didn’t help in my analysis, I’m sure.

But it just adds to my theory: Klutzy guys = HOT.
