Preschool (Charlotte)

  • Playing in the sprinklers was a really big deal, but they would never let us swim in the big pool. We only got to use the small flower sprinkler.
  • I used to grab objects and sing into them as if they were microphones (sticks,dolls, blocks) all the time as if I were giving private concerts. One day Laura's boyfriend Jeffrey stole my stick as I was singing into it and threw it over the railing. I never liked him after that.
  • Laura's boyfriend Jeffrey used to call himself Captain Hook and he would stumble over introducing himself when he would proclaim his name to others. I think he used to wear some sort of hat when he would say this but I could be making that up.
  • Drawing all over the wall of the apartment with lipstick with Laura's help. There are pictures of us sitting with Mama and ...

Dawson: Mmm... it looks to me more like the official wait in vain for Dawson to come over thing. Jen: (Sighs) One more joke like that, and I am really gonna know how hard this is for you. Dawson: It's not hard. Jen: (Disbelievingly) Come on. Dawson: It's not. It's not easy, but it's not hard. Jen: Well whatever it is, why don't you just go get it over with? Dawson: I'll do it, but it's just a highly predictable moment. I'm gonna walk over there, Joey and I are gonna engage in some semi-casual conversation until the awkwardness overwhelms us bot...

Seasons 1-3: Unfortunately this show has angst in almost every episode, and at the beginning, I really like most of it!

  • Season 1
    • 1.1 Pilot- Joey tells Dawson she's not sure they can be friends anymore; she says, "It's not that I wanted to be holding your hand; I just didn't want her holding it." (liar!); Pacey tells Tamara she blew it and says, "I'm the best sex you'll never have!" (Overconfident for a 15 year old) Tamara acts kind of sketchy with Pacey considering she is a teacher
    • 1.3 Kiss- Dawson's dad is telling him how to kiss and Joey pretends that Dawson is kissing her; it's kind of sketchy though because Dawson is holding a bust of Joey's head that he uses in his movie when her head gets knocked off by the swamp creature played by Pacey; Joey won't kiss the...

In thinking over my favorite books, I was surprised that there weren't more couples that I really liked given my propensity for chick lit and romance novels in general

  • Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy (Pride & Prejudice) Elizabeth gets what she wants and she's hilarious; Mr. Darcy is a prideful man, but Elizabeth works her way into his heart and breaks down the walls he has put up
  • Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth (Persuasion) I love all the angst in their relationship and the fact that neither one of them got over each other after 7 years; his letter to her is the most romantic prose I have read in literature
  • Sheridan Drake and Olympia (Seize the Fire) Sheridan suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and is super tortured and ...
