April fools...
Last night I was in the living room working when Amber brought me a glass of horchata with a fake gummy eyeball in it. It wasn't very scary—I didn't gasp or scream or pee my pants or drop the glass or anything. But she really thought it was hilarious and I thought it was hilarious that she thought it was so hilarious because it really wasn't that hilarious. Then she told me about her original plan for an April fools joke which was to get a ride home from work early so that when I got home she would be laying on the kitchen floor in a puddle of blood [fake blood I guess] and then when I asked "what happened!?" she would hold up her finger and say "paper cut." It is so stupid but also a really funny idea because of how stupid it is. The best part is that she was laughing so hard that she was crying when she told me about that plan. Anyway, I love how all of her April fools jokes are really just creepy/cheap halloween gimmicks.

Ummm...in my defense, I only laughed so hard b/c it WAS soooo stupid. I get it. And I was just making the best use of the most convenient resources, which happened to be fake bloody fingers, gummy eyeballs, plastic coakroaches, & whoopee cushions. Cut me some slack! This post really busts my chops sometimes.

I heard about your April Fool's prank on Keenan. But seriously, I wish you guys were kicked out of your apartment so that we could have sleepovers 24/7 and play Settlers all night.

Hahah that is pretty awesome. I wish she would have done it. It's pretty sick and twisted, but pretty awesome.
