I love my brother, but sometimes he can get nosy. But then, he is related to my mother, so this is only to be expected. And I love her VERY much, too, but. Yeah. Thankfully, I am (almost) always up to takin' him down when it comes down to verbal sparring. Take this conversation that we had yesterday for example:


Brother: "...Okay, I just...don't understand why you haven't dated at all in like, years--"

Me: [BURSTS out in a loud, obnoxious falsetto, a la King Fergus] " 'I DON'T WANT TO GET MARRIED! I WANT TO STAY SINGLE AND LET MY HAIR FLOW IN THE WIND AS I RIDE THROUGH THE GLEN, FIRING ARROWS INTO THE SUNSET!' "

Brother: ...

Me: [/Fergusfais a la this .gif]


Brother: [/Elinorfais a la same .gif] "...Never mind."


HA A WINNAR IS ME XD

I was having a conversation with my brother, and when I eventually brought it around to the point I wanted to make--that oftentimes, he argues merely because he likes to argue, that he kind of just has argue about most everything...

...He started to argue my point. Which, of course, only proved it. B]





ONCE AGAIN, OLDER SIBLING = WINNAAAAAARRRRRR HELL YEAH X'DDDDDDDDDDDDDD
alory_shannon: Rise from P4 fangirling, most likely over her senpai. & who can blame her, he's a badass, & a silver fox to boot. (So quick to fall in love with anything;)

My brother showed me this last night. Cute video, cute song. I can't stop smiling and listening to it.

My brother's home from his first semester of college! Yes, already--the study abroad program has a very ODD schedule, though Taylor's regular schedule is preeeetty special also. It's a little weird having him back, to be honest, though it's not really bad of course...except for one little thing really that's a HUGE pet peeve of mine. We share a bathroom...and he NEVER FAILS to leave hair on the soap. It's obviously just head hair, so I know it could be worse BUT STILL. IT'S GROSS I DON'T LEAVE HAIR ON THE SOAP HOW/WHY DOES HE. And SURE ENOUGH, it happened the FIRST TIME he took a shower after he got home, ahaha. So I told him (and I am deadly serious), that if I ever find hair on the soap again, I'm gonna go Jigglypuff on his face. :| And he gives a whole new meaning to the term "sleeps like the dead" so HE KNOWS I COULD DO IT AND GET AWAY WITH IT.

In other random-as-always news, I got the Twilight movie through the library system the other day, and I KNEW it was going to be terrible, so of course I had to make my mum watch it with me. I wasn't quite sure how she'd react--I mean, she reads all these ridiculous sappy romance novels all the time, so...a part of me was afraid she'd turn out to be The Scariest Freakin' Thing In Existence, i.e. A TWILIGHT MOM. 8| BUT I needn't have feared, it turns out, because the movie was even MORE wretched than I thought it'd be, and thus we spent the whole movie saying variations of "OH MY GOSH DID YOU SEE THAT HE IS SO CREEPY!!!" "OH MY GOSH I KNOW!!!" back and forth at each other. XD And thanks to RPatz' HORRID ACTING in that one scene in the biology lab where they first meet (around 0:08), I had to explain to my 57-year-old mother what the term "jizzed in his pants" means. |Da

lolol The scene when they're at the Cullens' house and he tries to get her to dance with him--my mum deadpanned, "...Dancing...with an iceberg...woohoo." And for all the 'running through the forest' scenes she was like "...What...are they flying? What the heck is going on?"

And then after it was over, she spent the rest of the day being twitchy and creeped out. She just kept coming up to me and saying stuff like, '...And all these teenage girls like him? Really?? HE IS SO WEIRD-LOOKING!' And he IS holy crap I totally agree with the 'foot' part of this thing. 8| 8| 8|

An hour so after the movie:

Me: "SO MOM, I'm going in to work this evening--did you want me to pick up a copy of the book for you from the library?" 0:3
Mum: *glowers* "...No.. I wouldn't want to give it credit for being checked out again."

Five minutes after that:

Me: "...So...you know, the second movie is at the theatre right now--"
Mom: *EPIC look of AAAAAAAAAAAAAH SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP* "NO!"

Oh Twilight. So much fail. And yet you spawn such wonderful goofiness, I can almost, almost forgive you for existing. ...And yet not quite, for you are not so bad you are funny, you are so bad you're BAD.

In other, thankfully non-sparkly news, COLLEGE TTLY MAKES YOU SMRT. My brother proved this last night, while watching television.

Brother: *watching some show where some guy had wired himself up with explosives* "...But what -I- wanna know is, where did he get the CO2?"
Me: *eyebrow quirk* ".......The CO2, huh?"
Brother: "...What?"
Me: *smiiiirks and leans towards him from waaaay across the room...and exhales deeply*
Brother: *UNDERSTANDING DAWNS* "...OH, no, I meant--!"
Me: *already halfway up the stairs & sniggering~* XD


...Of course, if he was learning about things like C-4 in college, I would be sorta worried. BUT STILL. /lol pats teh bruzz0r XD

Every now and then, I'm reminded of how nice it is to have a sibling. Like just now, when the Squirt and I were discussing the possibility of being writers, and swapped some of our ideas for fantasy novels and short stories. Talking one of my ideas out with him helped me figure out how to rework a certain troublesome spot in the plotline, and it's nice to get feedback from an impartial audience (because let me assure you, he is generally blunt to the point of being rude, and if something was goofy, he'd be certain to point it out and razz me about it--can you tell he's my brother? XD).

And the best thing about being five years older? It made it MUCH easier to brainwash him into sharing many of my interests though he still laughs at me for writing fanfiction, not that I blame him, so we can relate on a lot of issues, and generally share the same opinions about most things (for example, he thinks R/Hr is RETARDED--when I asked him if he liked RHr or HHr better, he looked at me like I'd just asked him which he preferred, cow pies or chocolate cake, and said with a truly masterful mixture of condescension and disbelief, "Harry and Hermione. DUH." Hee. I luffers that boy so much sometimes. ^_^ )


Not that he's intelligent ALL the time...prime example, something that happened just a few days ago:

Brother: *looking at my bookshelf* "PER—PER-SUN!—PER-SUN-AL-ET-TEE! ...Guh, I need some ‘HUH-OO-KED ON PAH-HON-IKES.’ At first I thought it said ‘physics’, and then I thought it said ‘psychology’…" -_-;;


lol, you know ILU, Ray XD
