Things I miss about the suburbs

1. the inability to walk all over town, driving even to run over to the store, the suburbs are saving our planet one gas tank at a time.

2. trees. i miss trees, the big tree's that fall on top of your cars and totalling them, that drip sap all over your nicely cleaned and waxed car and leaves pine needles all over the driveway and streets

3. big backyards, i wish i could mow a big lawn every week - or pay a mexican to do it. i can't believe i'm missing out on that, i really hate going over to the sculpture park that is maintained and groomed by some random person that i don't have to pay and enjoy a beautiful view every night and day.

4. political signs, the city does not have mountains of picketing signs "vote for mike carrell" i miss those mr-yuck-colored-green signs.

5. stop signs, we really don't have enough stop signs in the city.

6. backroads. i'm so sick of walking or driving somewhere in the city and taking the freeway or viaduct and letting it only take me 10 minutes, whatever happened to suburban backroads so you could take a whole hour to go see a friend.

7. being creeped out walking to my car at night, thinking someone is hiding in the bush or jumped into your car while you ran inside the house.

8. the non-existence of street lights, the city really has too many street lights, people can't hide in the shadows of the city and well thats just not fun.

9. bugs. i miss bugs. ants and rodents in my house, mosquitos and bees somehow trapped inside your house. i mean if a girl can't make friends with a mouse in her own house anymore, what is happening to this world?

10. the possibility that someone could steal your mail or your newspaper. what is with the city locking up your mail, do we not trust anyone anymore? if my drunk next door neighbour wants to steal my newspaper, i want her to have that opportunity.

geez, why on earth do I live in the city?


  1. lol. i get it, you're being facetious, but PLEASE make an adjustment to your #3! it's not p.c.

    don't you miss dog poop?

  2. what do you mean p.c.??

    ah we still have dog poop in the city, especially olivers haha

  3. pc=politically correct. Take a look at it again.

  4. haha because i said "pay a mexican to do it" maybe sometimes i dont want to be politically correct. :P

  5. YES! i was trying not to spell it out exactly so that when you deleted it no one would know what you said.

    you gotta change it. It's not cool. sometimes it's ok to be politically incorrect, but sometimes it's not cool.

  6. Remember when you and Ashley were little and i used to jump your ass for saying 'that's so gay' or 'that's ghetto'... didn't any of that sink in?


  7. i still say "thats gay" and its OBVIOUS that i love gay people. nope, not changing it. not at all. FREEDOM OF SPEECH! i wouldnt say it all the time, its my blog. haha.

  8. you are so freaking stubborn! I hope Jose or Juan sees this and kicks your ass. LOL.

  9. haha!! i will welcome the fight. the fight for my rights! hahahahaha okay i may be taking the consitution a bit far in this butttt it is my blog i shall say whatever i want haha :)

  10. you are. you are abusing the Constitution. I'm telling Obama. I'm going to send the link to your blog to him. THEN I'm going to get the Supreme Court Justice To Be, Sotomayor on your ass.

    And they will kick you out of the Democratic party. You watch. You're in big trouble now. And one day you will say to yourself, "Why don't i ever listen to my wise old aunt jojo?"

  11. Jo. all of this because I said "or pay a mexican to do it" now you are the one whose gone overboard haha

  12. i am sooooooooooooooo disappointed. i would think, you, of all people in my family, would understand why i am going overboard on this.

    i taught you better! think of all those car rides where i used to talk to you and Ashley about stuff:

    1. Don't ever be a cheerleader.
    2. Do NOT ever smoke because you know how many pairs of Doc Martens you could buy if you don't?
    3. Don't do drugs! (just like the mom says it on "Almost Famous".
    4. You can't marry anyone that i don't approve of.
    LOL..... don't you remember this stuff at all?

  13. i never became a cheerleader, i never have and i really dont think i ever will smoke or do drugs and i really dont plan on marrying you wouldnt love.

    SO i'd say i'm doing pretty damn good. I feel as a fairy princess i can say "thats gay" if i want. its not as big a deal as you think i know plently of gay people who say "thats gay" i also say "thats retarded" and well i dont normally stereotype and talk about mexicans. it was for the sake of writing haha

  14. Yall crack me up! It is so refreshing to see relatives who truly love each other, bicker and stick to their own views; but will truly still love each other after.

    Not that anyone asked, but I think Ashley is right and shouldnt change it.

    Now had she said 'wet-back' or 'n.....', I would be offended, but she doesnt strike me as the type to use those words, even when being faceitious. (however its spelled lol)

    Rock on girls!
