8 is oline as grown up as she thinks she is?


yesterday there was this woman on the train. blond, mid-twenties, cute boots, ginormous purple plastic earrings. she was presumably heading home from a long wednesday at work. and she was standing there reading a book. a book that, even at a distance of 40 feet, from somewhere in the recesses of my teenage mind i could identify as sweet valley high #5, all night long. and for the first time, the meaning of that title- not to mention the sheer skeeziness of that dude's mustache- hit me.

skeezy or not, if i had the ability to grow that stache i would be rocking that thing up and down the block.

I too would give almost anything to have that mustache. I can grow the most manly beard imaginable, but a rocking mustachio is beyond me. I think you have to perform a set amount skeezy or white trash actions to get that beast on your lip. I would write odes to it and wear gold chains too if need be.

i love how you guys get all swoony and wax follicularly romantic at the mere mention of a mustache. silly boys.

i heard a stache like that can get you into the all the best clubs. also, cure cancer.

I don't know how many moustache parties I have attended. really just an excuse for all the men in the group to grow moustaches. barely there, moustaches, I might add. but yes. MULTIPLE parties over the years. Does every man deep down just want to be Tom Selleck?

it's a mollestache!!!

and, by the by, they are reinventing the series...apparently, the sisters were too fat in the original books, among other things, and now they are swimming in a sea of controversy. here's the link, with a copy of the publisher's letter. it's quite interesting.
