Last Friday, I crossed over to the dark side. That is to say, I became *dramatic pause* an Adult. I highly doubt that turning 18 will bring with it some sudden spike in maturity, though, so expect a whole lot of whining and tales of mishap as always.
Anyway, to celebrate the Big Event, Lucid and Fuzzy thought they’d give me a little surprise. Except, of course, they suck ( for one thing, because I have to announce my birthday, myself!). So I knew something was up the eve before the actual surprise itself, because 1) both Lucid and Fuzzy were out at the same time when I’d called to talk to them 2) Lucid giggled like mad and Fuzzy’s mom giggled when she told me the girl wasn’t home. Somewhere within the first three seconds of this, I smelled a rat. I chuckled to myself (I don’t ‘giggle’) and went to bed. The next morning, my mom wakes me up and spouts some crap about how I should wake up and take a shower because we might go out. I played along-kicked a fuss, said I wanted to sleep in etc (*more chuckling*).
Then Lucid and Fuzzy showed up, and were all “SURPRISE!!”.And they gave me balloons.
Like I said, they SUCK.
But not as much as you’d think, because they also bought me 17 other things (18 things in all for my 18th, see?) that you can read about after the break below (or you can quit here and consider them complete and utter losers, you choose!).
1. Numero Uno:
A CD of..you guessed it, 18 songs!And all with ’18’ in the title. Or about turning 18. Or growing up. And then, there’s the “I love you” song from Barney just to cause me pain.
#3.” Mr. Squishums”. I actually joked about buying my brother a bear and calling him Mr.Squishums for his birthday (which, incidentally, is one day before mine). Looks like that idea came back and bit me in the behind.
#4. This one was hilarious. They got me the kind of card that features in my worst nightmares :
” You deserve a special day that sparkles, just like you!”. Very funny, guys.
#5. I lost the number tag on this one, so I’m assuming it’s no.5. One of the better ones, too. ( Plus, this gives me the opportunity to post a link to my ‘artblog’.Which, by the way, has been getting zero views almost consistently since it came in to existence *coughhintcough*.)
The tag said something like “Paint something on these, K?”
#6. This one, I am just frankly mortified by. I am giving it away at first opportunity*!
They made me read it all aloud to them. On my BIRTHDAY! ‘With friends like these, who needs enemies ?(No, really?!!)”
*Well, no. Not really. I think.
#7. Somewhere about here, i was getting complacent. I thought to myself ” Ah, well, at least the worst’s behind me..”. Needless to say, i was proven wrong by :
Friendship quotes, I kid you not. These are so painful, i’m just going to avert my eyes and keep typing. I suggest you do the same.
#8. One of my favourites:
” May you always be richer than this!!”! They gave me 18 INR (about US $0.39, for reference). Lmao!
#9. They also thought it was acceptable to give me a mug with a fairy on it. And ‘SCORPIO’ printed on the bottom as if that makes it all OK.
#10. This is the bag it all came in. the tag reads ” No.10 : Because we’re not as creative as you think we are”. Damned right, you arent!
#11. Fake driver’s license (hilarous!)
#12. Some of the awesomest cake I have ever had. (Also: The box was considerably less empty when I received it).
#13. Chocolate! Because no birthdya of mine would ever be complete without these, right?
Oops, looks like I mixed up tags 12 & 13!
#14. I’ll have to explain this a bit. See, I had these earrings that were really playboy bunnies, except I wore them flipped over so they looked like pliers. This was the subject of much ridicule, for some reason. And then I lost them. Lucid and Fuzzy went looking for replacements, but couldn’t find any so they got me these instead:
#15. Eighteen Balloons 🙂
Nos. 16 & 17.
They gave me pictures of themselves, the idiots! I can’t post their pictures, so here’s a good likeness, instead:
#18. 18 minutes of them talking. And singing drunkenly and things.
So, in conclusion, they..dontalwayssuck. There.
