Hello, My Adoring Fans

I have seen this before. I think we all have.

Much to my contradictorily combined excitement and chagrin, my life is fact shaping into a cliche young adult coming of age novel.

Is this good or is this bad? That is the question. (mad props to you, Shakey, for that brilliantly penned and wildly popular line)

Regardless, I've already got the exposition-y bit of a young adult, coming-of-age, learning about dating novel. Essentially, it all stars with our glam and glorious heroine (ie, ME) falling desperately into a rather ridiculously severe infatuation with the seemingly perfect older guy. Said perfect guy is quirky, funny, charming, and as equally, but far more publicly, glorious as our young heroine (ie, RSP1). He's often quite taken with seemingly obscure nerdy cult indulgences (ie, Monty Python) and is proud of the fact. But, despite the overwhelming awesomeness of our leading lady, he still spends most of his time swishing deliciously about while staunchly ignoring the plight of the aforementioned female.

But things invariably look up. After, that is, things look quite horribly worse.

The protagonist is spirited off on some strange and horrible adventure which, superficially, looks like it's going to be Hell on Earth. HOWEVER, she's soon joined by an equally quirky, underdog-esque, nerdy, but still wildly handsome, male alternative and, invariably, they end up sucking face. After they permanently immobolize their tongues, they head back to the homeland and realize what a horrible, jerkish, shallow person the original infatuation and the girl is all happy and fine.

So I've already gotten through the first bit, now I just need to find me a lovable nerd to suck face with. xD

A few things.
1. Since when have you been on nickname terms with Shakespeare?
2. In most of these clich├ęd novels (the, like, four...or less...that I've read), the guy that the girl falls for typically isn't nerdy. Nerds tend to not be the most popular, and said male tends to be very popular.
3. Er...do I want to know what "suck face" means?
4. I've noticed that once a post falls into the endless void of "any page that's not the main page," "page two," or any variant thereof, you tend never to reply to comments on said posts.
5. I put your blog down as one of my interests on a volunteer form I had to fill out. You should be proud.

1. Since always. We were, as the kids say, homies back in the day
2. Sometimes they are nerds, and if they aren't (in the books that *I* read, they're some alternative to popular, like... an art geek)
3. Make out with
4. Well, I'll go do that, then
5. What was this a volunteer form for? And I'm very, very proud of you. I really am =)

Connor said...

1. WAY back in the day, I suppose. xD
2. Ah. Of course, I don't exactly go out of my way to read such books.
3. You certainly have an interesting way of putting it.
5. It was for a YMCA group. It's, like, the only way I can get community service hours. Though, she had asked during a meeting what we hoped to get out of it, and I said that I was only there because I had to do community service hours, and about four kids gave me really weird looks...I think they thought that I was a delinquent that had to serve hours. >.<

Rebekah Ruth said...

1. Sure
2. I read awesome books like that (pretty much all the books by Maureen Johnson that I've read, and one of John Green's novel, just with a male protagonist)
3. I think I actually got it from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
4. You didn't answer me
5. YAY

Connor said...

1. Blah (Well, at least I answered you)
2. Yeah...yeah, see, I don't, so I really wouldn't know.
3. .....Well, that reminds me of that obsession in eighth grade that you had.
4. OK, seeing as I can't think of anything better to say, I remembered during that latest chat what a stupid idea it is for me to argue with you...I always get beaten down miserably...And plus, arguments like that led to the events of December, and I don't think either of us want such a rift to occur again.
5. And now I'm stuck with these people for...the rest of 9th grade at least, if I want to get those hours for Henry Clay.

Rebekah Ruth said...

1. Oh, indeed
2. You totally should, because John Green is fantastic and Maureen Johnson is fantastic and they're both just a great big mess of awesome.
3.I would still have it if I could get ahold of the other seasons, but adrepay does not approve
4. YEah. That wasn't fun. But it did indirectly make my belief in God far more concrete than it had been previously, so. There was a positive for me.
5. Tee hee hee

Connor said...

1. Gah. You sure have a way of responding with more or less unrespondable-to answers.
2. A great big mess of awesome? Interesting.
3. Ah. And, y'know, Pig Latin works better spoken than written. It took me a few seconds to work out that "adrepay" was actually "padre" and not some foreign Apache word. Dunno why I thought Apache, it was just the first thing that came to mind.
4. So I think it's pretty much agreed that we should avoid things like that?
5. Refer back to #1.

Rebekah Ruth said...

1. Refer to page number 17859 in the Rebekah Rule Book
2. Add Scott Westerfeld and you just might explode from the awesome
3. adrepay sounds a bit like "Apache". Besides, that is what I call my paternal figure so... you know ... it's his name regardless
4. Indeed
5. Refer to #1

Connor said...

1. Refer to #5
2. Ouch. That might just be painful.
3. Yeah. You always seemed to refer to him as such in middle school.
4. Good. They always seem to end in my getting told, and they don't bode well for a friendship.
5. Well, blah on you. I lost my copy. So there.
