Life is so funny.

Life is so funny. Sometimes you accidentally make out with your friends. Sometimes Will Ferrell movies are inspiring. And sometimes the only person who can make you feel better after you find an old love letter from your ex-boyfriend is the girl he replaced you with. Things can really throw you for a loop every now and then.

I didn't do anything today but clean my room, listen to Flight of the Conchords, and watch the new Taylor Swift video on repeat. (At 0:45 she displays some oddly Kristina-esque mannerisms. Weird.) I'm still wearing the ugly sweatpants that I may or may not have worn half of yesterday and all of last night. Pretty soon I'm going to go over to my sister and brother-in-law's new house to watch TV, eat Chipotle (surprise!) and be otherwise productive. I think my brother moved out today. I realize that's a strange thing to speculate about-- whether or not your brother still lives with you-- but it's been the world's slowest moving process. If he did, baaaah, I now have to drive fifteen minutes away when we want to watch Scrubs together, and if he didn't, baaah, it's inevitable anyway.

A friend of Jess's died this week. I never met him, but it's a pretty terrible thing to imagine. He was our age, had a serious girlfriend, and Jess says he was a really great person. She's so sweet... she makes it her duty in life to revive everyone around her, so she never allows herself to be sad. Pray for her, okay? And obviously the family/friends/girlfriend of the boy.

I'm just the personification of fascinating today. I can't think of anything else at all to say. Stranger Than Fiction is beautiful and jaw-droppingly perfect. I'm vastly more obsessed with Rohan (RoboFillet) than he is with me. Misty (my little white dog) smells like burnt hair and vomit.

Bye, guys! Hopefully I'll see you tomorrow. <3

Oh, *Jess.* I... jeez. Give her love from me, okay?

Stranger than Fiction has the plants, right? Like... he didn't want to get her flowers, there were seeds... rrrr. I saw the ending on a plane and I remember that gesture really grabbing my attention. And clearly my perfect memory of this shows how deeply it touched me.

Mark said...

OMG! she IS acting like Kristina!

she's so famous, Taylor Swift wants to be her!

Josie said...

I'm sorry this is the first comment I've left on your blog Hayley but I can never think of anything to say. I am going to try harder with this. I am very sorry to hear about jess' friend and she will be in my thoughts.

Also, my dog too smells of sick, as well as disinfectant.

Dan said...

Oh, that is sad. I will pray for your friend and the guys family.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who's been watching the new Taylor Swift video over and over again. I listen to her almost everyday. The day is not complete without Taylor Swift and Hayley G Hoover.

Have a nice day :)

I'll pray

Taylor Swift is made of awesomesauce; it's official. She also proves that music videos don't need to have skimpy outfits and provocative choreography on cars to be good.

Ben said...

So what is a chipotle or however you make that make sense?

Hi!
The Taylor Swift song You Belong With me is my favourite song. My friend Jessica took a film class and had to make a video for the same song. She asked my best friend (Dale, a boy) and me to do it with another one of our friends, Erin.
The song really hits hard, I'm in love with my best friend (Dale) and I think he might be gay. It's all so confusing to me.
Also, my sister's best friend died at the age of 17, she was just starting college to become a lawyer. Tell your friend I understand what she is going through. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with in my entire life. I will pray for him and his family, like I pray that my friend is an angel looking over all her friends and family down here.

I'm so glad we're friends, now, Hayley. :)

joy isobel said...

It's a little bit sickening how catchy that new Taylor Swift video is... *facepalm*.

Love goes out to Jess, her friend, and his family :)

I agree with you a hundred percent. Life Is at times hilarious in its oddity. I saw Kristina and Alex today at Snoqualmie Falls. I managed to creep them both out by walking passed and saying hi and both their first and last names. The little things makes life amusing.

Kristi said...

Stranger than Fiction is one of my favorite movies. :)

BrattyBunny said...

I watch that video all the time :\

Larangutang said...

I love that music video, thanks lol. Don't we all wish real life could be anything like music or them movies? Anyways hope you have fun eating chipotle burritos.

Rachel said...

Even though the concept of the song is cliche and the fact that the guy from Hannah Montana is in it makes it a little creepy, I found myself humming to it this morning xD.


I've just started watching Scrubs, and it's basically my new favorite show now. I find Todd's sexual innuendos strangely endearing!


Tell Jess my heart goes out to her and her friend, and that I hope she's okay =) I've never been through anything close to that, I couldn't begin to imagine.


Sorry about the long comment, stay awesome =)

Terhen said...

A friend of my brothers committed suicide the other week, he was 15. I knew him fairly well too :/

It's weird, thinking about someone of a similar age to you dying. If nothing else, it does remind you of your own mortality.

Rachel said...

Oh dear. Give Jess some love from me ok? Even though I don't know her. I know how it feels to have a friend lose someone dear to them and it really really sucks. I will pray for her. [=

I absolutely LOVE that video for Taylor Swift. I too, have been watching it all day long on repeat. Kristina's fame is so big that Taylor Swift even wants to act like her. That's pretty freaking impressive.

I am really sorry to hear about jess' friend, let her know she is in everyone's thoughts. About your dog, my dog too develops a scent about her... the man from the dogwash gave me the advice of " when dealing with white dogs, you put talcum powder on them and rub it in, leaving them smelling fresh".
So yeah, i hope that was as helpful to you as it was for me! haha.
once again, thankyou for writing your life down and sharing it with us. Its fantastic.

:) x hayley

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who always "accidently" makes out with friends, and finds the awkwardness amusing.
About four or five kids from my year level died during highschool - it's hard to deal with and I always wonder why it was them and not me. But great and young people die all the time and I guess the only thing you can really do is be thankful it wasn't you.

Nazrine said...

omg I think I'm obsessed with that song now.

oh, that's terrible. My condolences to Jess and his family. That's a really awful thing to have happened.

Poor Jeeeess. I'm sending her love.

I loved Stranger Than Fiction too. I really didn't think I would, but it totally won me over. And now I want to watch it again.

Leesa said...

Terhen's comment nearly made me cry.

Believing_Be said...

"I brought you flours." Ohhhh, Stranger Than Fiction. I will never tire of watching that movie. :)

I'm praying for Jess and everyone touched by what happened. I can't even imagine their pain.

Scott said...

To say everything I need to say, I think it would be most effective if I made a list.

1. The first paragraph of this blog post was written so well, I was basically drooling my face off. Seriously - some of the most refreshing diction and syntax I have read in a very, very long time.

1.5. Glad I'm not the only one who accidently made out with their friend recently...

2. Stranger than Fiction is so great, I'm glad that you enjoyed it so much!

3. I'm so sorry to hear about Jess' friend. I'll definitely be praying for everyone involved.

4. Nevermind a Kristina reference - Can we talk about the Hayley doppleganger in the left corner at 1:59?! YOU TWO ARE IDENTICAL. LIKE, WOAH. How has no one else seen this?!

Christopher said...

Praying for your friend's friend's family and friends. That totally makes sense.

Stranger than fiction is so good, just watched that the other day.

And you got me hooked on that Taylor swift song, by the way, haha.

Chris

durtei. said...

I agree haha. Sometime I can't figure out Mr.Life too. =))

hfm said...

I'm sorry about your friend Jess' friend.
:[

Taylor Swift is amazing, I'm going to check out the Kristina-esque manerisms.

seurat2 said...

Stranger Than Fiction got me when he started singing Whole Wide World. I adore that song,and I can watch that scene over and over again. I have not yet bowed to peer pressure and watched the Taylor Swift video, but now that I know it reminds you of Kristina I'm going to have to see it.

Jess and the family and friends of that young man are in my thoughts and prayers.

Margo said...

first i have to say, hayley, you make me giggle.

second. aww poor jess/guys friends/family/girlfriend.

third. taylor swift is acting like kristina, when i saw that i laughed. twas awesome.

fourth. have fun eating chipotle ! :D

Pippa said...

It's even worse when your brothers and your sister live out of state. Then, you have to drive five hours to watch Scrubs with them, which sucks.

And I'm very sorry to hear about your friend Jess's friend. That's so sad. My condolences.

Nicholas said...

I won't even acknowledge the fact that I have seen the TS video several times before this blog and now several times afterwards... let's just leave it.

A said...

It's a rough week for me, too. Two years ago this week, two teenage girls I knew were killed in two separate car accidents.
I will add the boy you mentioned to my thoughts, and Jess as well. She's not the only one.


Also, life is weird.

Anonymous said...

I just had to point out that one of the ads in the corner appears to be selling feminine men. so if you're looking for a good deal on feminine men...

erin meagan said...

I love that song and I totally can see the kristina connection at that part!

justjustine said...

Hayley, reading your blog is funner than studying for ap tests.
just putting it out there.

Michelle said...

i lost my friend earlier this year, she just had a baby too so it was basically awful and her husband was a mess and I was in college and surrounded by people who didn't know her or the connection we had, it was not good.
Sending tons of love and prayers to Jess and his family and friends.

I have lost count of how many times I have watched the new Taylor Swift video. Lets just say it came up on the radio while I was driving with one of my friends and I could basically play the video in my head along with the song.....sigh, I lead an exciting life folks.
The Hannah Montanah Guy is pretty cute though...

Megan said...

Stranger Than Fiction = amazing.
I love Will Ferrell movies, and it's weird to see him in a different not-his-usual funny. It's really good though.

And I watched the new Taylor Swift video on repeat for atleast a good hour on Friday night. It made me cry. It's weird how predictable and cliche the video is, and yet it can still trigger my emotions so dramatically. My friend and I love Taylor Swift but now everytime I hear that song I can't help get emotional. It's pretty strange.

xoxoadorkable said...

I'm sorry to hear about Jess' friend and he well be in my thoughts and prayers.

I have also been watching the Taylor Swift video on and listening to the song on repeat. It's just so cute.
