The girls...

Christina: 22-year-old living in Small-ish Town, West Coast. Lives with and loves BF. Has too many exes, some with interesting stories, some... not so much. Is still trying to figure out what to do now that her bff, Courtney, is two states away... again.
Courtney: 22-year-old living in Smaller Town, West Coast. Living alone, single and loving it. Has lots of scandalous stories to share. Missing her bff, but is excited about this new journey! Looking for Mr. Right, but will settle for Mr. Right now...

Behind the name...

Sex and the City + the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants + The Sweetest Thing...
Part young girl, part grown woman... a little bit of fashion, a little bit (well, hopefully a LOT) of sex... and probably more booze than what's healthy. We started this blog hoping to start a chronicle of our lives, now hundreds of miles apart, as best friends... with the help of a fabulous handbag, of course!

And if you don't like it, you can go (back) to hell.

I'm not usually the follower type, but I liked Court's so much I just had to make a list myself.

I'm pretty much going to follow hers, so you all can get to know the same stuff about us... so you'll notice some similarities. And you'll also kind of get a feel for the way Court and I interact, because some of the items on here are basically reactions to her list. You may call it a cop-out, I call it a time saver. I'm a busy girl, get off me.

101 things you're gonna wish you didn't know about Christina:
  1. My favorite color is black.
  2. I'm a Mountain Dew addict.
  3. BF is the only boyfriend I've ever had who I haven't cheated on.
  4. I looooooove pizza.
  5. Men turn me on.
  6. Guys who can play the guitar make me wet.
  7. Australian accent, please.
  8. I used to be really sarcastic, but now... extreme sarcasm will make me want to punch you in the face.
  9. I love shoes. God, I love shoes.
  10. And purses. God, I love purses.
  11. I, too, love PostSecret. And have sent a secret or two in... but have yet to see them published.
  12. At least, I think I sent them... I know I made them. Let's hope I sent them.
  13. I've been in love twice. BF and First Love.
  14. I've told more than two guys I've loved them, though. But not because I didn't feel it... at the time, I thought I was in love. Hindsight is always 20/20, though.
  15. Growing up, I never thought I'd be the girl who spends more than an hour getting ready, owns more than 50 pairs of shoes, can't keep track of all her purses... and here I am.
  16. It's "yeah" when it's a synonym for "yes," and "ya" when it's a synonym for "you."
  17. I know "ain't" ain't a word, but I use it anyway. Same with y'all.
  18. No, I'm not from the South.
  19. I've been called a grammar/punctuation nazi.
  20. I love newspapers.
  21. I heart all things Victoria's Secret. Unlike Court, I don't discriminate (though the V-string thongs are nice).
  22. I've never fooled around in any way with any co-worker. At all.
  23. I've never - and would put money on it that I will never - have a threesome. I'm too greedy.
  24. I've been to entirely too many family members' funerals. Fuck death.
  25. I don't trust people enough.
  26. I haven't said the phrase, "Facebook me!" since I left College Town, but I said it almost daily when I was there.
  27. I miss my phone with the full qwerty keyboard. God, do I miss it.
  28. I cry all. the. fucking. time.
  29. Sometimes I think I'm bi-polar - seriously, I know the gravity of the disorder. I can be perfectly happy one minute, then blacking out from rage the next. I call it The Crazy. Then I stop PMSing and I'm good for the rest of the month.
  30. I don't smile enough. Especially at work. God, do I get stressed at work.
  31. BF hates the smell of Febreze. I love it.
  32. Fuck deja vu.
  33. I pretend it's not true, but I should probably get glasses soon. And I definitely shouldn't be allowed to drive at night (and I avoid it as much as possible) becaus I can't see shit.
  34. The only way I can stand being around BF's brother is after I've had at least a couple drinks. He brings out The Rage in me.
  35. Makeup sex is better when you're in love.
  36. I, too, love black eyeliner. But I'd go without it before I'd go without mascara.
  37. I wear the eyeliner mostly because growing up I always heard, "Ohmygawdyouhavesuchbigeyes!" and it drove me absolutely batshit crazy. The eyeliner makes 'em look smaller. And, y'know, better.
  38. I'm going to say this again to really drive it home: I love shoes. And an addendum: Heels. Heels, heels, heels. God, I love heels.
  39. I'm too indecisive to get a tattoo. I've had an appointment or two to get one, but canceled because I didn't know what the fuck I'd get.
  40. Regardless of titles, I think of myself as being able to do what I want with whom I want at all times (see #3). The reason I haven't cheated on BF is because I love him and don't want to be with or fuck anyone else.
  41. Asshole Ex was a fucking prick. I don't think Court knows how close I came to physically assaulting him.
  42. I have a pet with the same (nick)name as one of this blog's followers.
  43. I have three pets total.
  44. I do. not. allow any of the pets to be in the room when BF and I have sex.
  45. Allergies ain't got shit on me.
  46. My house here in Small-ish Town is smaller and all-around crappier than any of my apartments in College Town.
  47. I apply deodorant three or four times a day.
  48. Thinking about losing BF makes me sick to my stomach.
  49. Thinking about all the time I wasted on the losers before BF makes me wish I could go back in time and somehow meet him earlier than I did.
  50. I've smoked pot quite a bit. My sophomore year in College Town is a blur.
  51. I'm glad I quit smoking when I did because I could have, pretty easily, blown my education because of it.
  52. I've never done any other drug.
  53. A few friends in College Town offered me some cocaine once, off of their bathroom counter. I promptly said no and left the party.
  54. My favorite beer pong partner is Court.
  55. You know how they say college is the best four years of your life? Yeah. Pretty much. Well, maybe. Either way, they were some pretty good years.
  56. I miss my dad every day of my life.
  57. BF (almost) always seems to want to talk about the sex before we get down to it...  "What do you want, baby?" "How do you want it?" While I appreciate his thoughtfulness, sometimes I wish he'd just shut up and throw me down on the bed.
  58. I love my hair being pulled in bed.
  59. My given name is from some old song my mom loves, only she spruced up the spelling. Nobody ever spells it right. I love the name, though.
  60. I've never dyed my hair. No highlights, nothin'.
  61. I have no idea what color my eyes are. Brown? Green? Hazel? Honey?
  62. I'm a lot on the short side. 5' 1".
  63. BF is right around 6' tall. Scaredy Ex was (is still, too, I guess) about 6'. Most of my most recent flings have been right around 6' tall. Short guys creep me out.
  64. I can't believe sometimes how many of my classmates are married and/or have kids.
  65. But then I feel hypocritical because I want to marry BF (gasp!) and having kids actually doesn't scare the fuck out of me.
  66. I love reruns of Law & Order: SVU and Criminal Intent, Fresh Prince, Friends and Will and Grace.
  67. I own every season of Sex and the City on DVD. And the movie.
  68. I loved The OC when it was on TV... for the first two or three seasons. But then Marissa died and I swore off the show, despite Ryan and Seth (yum).
  69. I've slept with more than 20 guys.
  70. I used to have a list of all of the guys I've slept with, but got rid of it after BF and I had been together for awhile. It just didn't matter anymore.
  71. I'm pretty sure I couldn't name all 20+.
  72. I dream of traveling all over the world with the man I love... but BF isn't exactly keen on the idea. He's actually said, when discussing going to Hawaii, "Do you know how much WATER you have to fly over to get to Hawaii?"
  73. I talk about BF too much... even though we've been together as long as we have, I still feel like I'm in the "honeymoon" stage of the relationship sometimes.
  74. The first thing I notice about a guy is his eyes - not the color, but the intensity and what's behind them. Then I look at his shoes.
  75. LOLcats kills me. Love it.
  76. Call me old-fashioned, but my favorite position is missionary and its subtle variations.
  77. Doggy-style and girl-on-top are close behind.
  78. Sunflowers are pretty much my favorite flowers.
  79. But I'm a sucker for roses. I've only gotten them twice - once, a single rose in high school and most recently, BF surprised me with a dozen when he came to visit me in College Town.
  80. My safety drink (non-alcoholic) is iced tea. I order it out of habit, not always because I want it. But I always love it.
  81. My safety alcoholic drink is Coors Light. In a bottle, preferrably.
  82. But if you want a girl dancing on the table, give me a good Long Island iced tea.
  83. Microfleece blankets are my favorite. Have you ever wrapped yourself up in one when you're naked? I recommend it. 
  84. I'm 100 percent convinced that just about every shirt would be cuter if it had a hood on it. I love hoodies.
  85. Love flip flops.
  86. When I love something, I really, really love it. I don't just like something - I either don't care or I fucking LOVE it. And that probably doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of sense to you, but it's pretty deep and meaningful to me.
  87. One of my most memorable birthday gifts was when my sister bought me a shit ton of strawberries (what are they called, flats? Cases? Whatever...). I love strawberries. 
  88. I love walking around the house naked. It's liberating.
  89. But I feel sexiest, typically, in jeans, heels and a bra.
  90. I've kissed four girls - including Court.
  91. Another girl and I had a make-out session (her doing, she was unstoppable) while she was d-r-u-n-k. I went along with it because she had a boyfriend and I figured it was better for her to make out with me than my drunk guy friend who would not. stop. hitting. on. her. That and I couldn't have stopped her if I tried. Talk about relentless!
  92. I'm the baby of the family and definitely act like it.
  93. I LOVE seafood. Well, shrimp, crab and lobster. And some fish but not necessarily tuna.
  94. While in College Town, I contracted chlamydia and HPV. For this reason, I know all stereotypes about STDs are complete and utter bullshit. Talk to me about it if you disagree. Or agree.
  95. I've never traveled outside the U.S. And I hate it.
  96. I can't imagine being single.
  97. ... and I worry sometimes that's because I'm afraid to be alone.
  98. I've fooled around in Court's living room, on a hide-a-bed, while someone was sleeping on the floor.
  99. More than once.
  100. The only time I've ever gotten even slightly aroused when looking at porn online (back when I used to every now and then) was when watching girl-on-girl stuff. I don't know why and I'm not entirely comfortable with it.
  101. I've never used a dildo, vibrator or any other toy.
That took days to finish. Hope you enjoyed it. :)

XOXO
Christina

    Sunflowers are my favorite too. Sam sent me sunflowers as soon as we started dating and it was like "Hello, I love you!"

    And we need to discuss 101. This is something every girl needs to try. At least once!

    id have to agree with #100 a lil bit too..

    but I have what i think is a good explanation:

    it because of us as being girls and watching girls, we can actually imagine what having a pussy licked would feel like..

    i dont get excited watching a guy get his dick sucked cuz i dont know what it feels like..
    so there ya go! :)

    I love this post, haha. PS- I cry all the time too...though now that I think about it, I've been doing pretty good lately.

    I love The OC and I even continued watching it after Marissa died. Taylor was cute and totally made up for Marissa. Come on, Marissa was getting a little annoying anyway..
