1) It's not a soap opera, Leona. Everything with you is a soap opera.

2) They used to be fat and juicy and now they're twisted. They had their lives stolen. Well, they taste sweet, but really they're just humiliated grapes. I can't say I am a big supporter of the raisin council.

3) Only kin's allowed in here.
Alice, are you blind? Don't you see the family resemblance? That's my brother. 
Guessed by Matt

4) If you give me a headstart I can beat you.

5) We were just killing time with those classes! One semester we took Criminology, for Christ's sake, what the fuck were we training to be, Batman? 
Guessed by Edith

6) If you're a bird, I'm a bird. 
Guessed by Edith

7) Thanks for the time that you've given me. The memories are all in my mind. And now that we've come to the end of our rainbow, there's something I must say out loud. Yes, you're once, twice, three times a lady. I love you. Yes, you're once, twice, three times a lady. I love you. I love you.

8) I'm a cross-dressing homosexual pacifist with a spot on my lung.

9) First thing's first: Who's Amy making out with in the ambulance?

10) They're bigger! They're stronger! They're faster! They've got more facial hair!

11) They are poems that just occur to him on the spot. Last night he said to me, "Dawn, your face is a brilliant moon in my empty room. Your love is like a beating drum. Ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum." 
Guessed by Edith

12) People go to school to get smarter, so that they can get a job. You already have a job, so it's like skipping a step.

13) Worrying about your kids is sanity, and being that sane... can drive you nuts.

14) Don't feel sorry for me. I started out poor, and I worked my way up to outcast.

15) Charlotte, I know you're planning a celibate life, but with half my chromosomes, I think that might be tough. 
Guessed by Edith

16) Hm. Teenagers. They think they know everything. You give them an inch, they swim all over you. 
Guessed by DJ

17) One day, not today, not tomorrow, not this season, probably not next season either but one day, you and I are gonna wake up and suddenly we're gonna be like every other team in every other sport where winning is everything and nothing else matters. And when that day comes, well thats, thats when we'll honor them.

18) You may kiss the first mate.

19) Now I've asked you forty different ways and it's time you come up with a fresh answer.

20) It doesn't matter what Lucy said. I stopped trusting her after she stole my poprocks in the third grade.

So Edith thought that it would be a great idea to go through my emails one day when I wasn't there. And then she thought I was mean to Andrea in them so she told her and then Ashley told Andrea. So then Andrea was really mad at me and we got in a fight because I was mad that she had read my emails and she was mad about what they said.

So then I wrote two emails later that night. One to Andrea apologizing and one to Edith telling her how mad I was. Andrea and I have been talking a bit, more like yelling at each other a bit I suppose but Edith hasn't had the decency to even talk to me. So now since all of this has happened Andrea, Edith and Ashley all don't talk to me and it's really awesome and all.

The best part about everyone hating me is the fact that Edith broke into my emails and read them and then told everyone about them and somehow I'm the bad guy in this situation and she's "so sweet" because she didn't tell Andrea personally because she "didn't want to hurt Andrea's feelings" but even though she did that as a "great friend" she still broke into my email account and hasn't even explained why the hell she did that in five days and she still gossiped about it with Ashley who accidentally tells secrets all of the times hense why Edith didn't tell her other things about this summer and nobody narked on her.

So as a result of this the only people from home that still like me are Nathy and Matt who are both at college so I sit in my room and watch TV and sleep if I'm not working, it's awesome. I love that all of my friends hate me as a result as this and Edith comes out as an angel like it's not completely messed up what she did at all.

I'm listening to "Teardrops on my Guitar" on repeat and it's making me pretty sad. I wish a boy liked me.

"Fast Car"
~Tracy Chapman~

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just 'cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

You see my old man's got a problem
He live with the bottle that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
I say his body's too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way

So Edith and I are going through some not great times. Our landlords are out of control and they are trying to get us to pay a crazy lump sum of money because of these scratchs our cats put in the walls. Our landlord came over and yelled at us for ten minutes. It was awkward because I was sitting in our chair and Edith opened the door and Lulu tried to escape so Edith was holding her and our Landlord was in the door and she was telling us what bad people we were. It was awful. And then she was telling us how funny we thought the whole situation was because we weren't saying anything. It's just like "sorry psycho lady, just because we aren't yelling at you in this heat of passion like you are doesn't mean that we don't care." And it's just so stupid because right off the bat we told her we would pay all the damage. Well then she went on to tell us we were doing that and paying next months rent which is $450 even though we are completely out by the 1st because "she won't be able to rent this place to anyone" and "wouldn't be able to pay her mortgage" even though she stays at home and they own three houses right in a row. And all of this crazy stuff. And then she told us that she was taking us to court and that she was close friends with the judge which in a small town means "no matter how unreasonable my pleas are and how calm and explaining you guys are in court you are screwed because I have an in." So then we were worried and the whole thing about the wallpaper that sucks is that it's in our living room and kitchen and it had to be replaced anyways because of all of this gross stuff that was here when we moved in. So they said they were going to get really nice new paper (even though ours currently sucks) and everything. So the whole thing sucks a lot.

Then Edith said "I wish I knew a lawyer so we could answer all of the questions we have". And then I said "well I do" and I called my aunt Judy to get my uncle Bill's number. Then I called Uncle Bill and I asked him all of our questions and I felt like such a loser because I started crying on the phone when I was with him and I felt like such a baby but he said "it's okay, take all of the time you need" which was pretty sweet. Then like three times during our conversation he tried to trick me into calling them and I was against it and he was like "well, I just want to talk to them to try to talk them out of taking you to court but I'm just going to let them know that if they do take you I'm going to represent you" and I was so happy because he's so sweet. So then I said "alright, let me just ask my roomate" and Edith said yes immediately and gave me the phone number. So then he asked me some more questions and called them. And then when he called back the first thing he said was "they aren't very nice people, huh?" which pissed me off that they were rude to him because no matter how big of a bitch I may be my uncle is not so I'm not impressed that they weren't nice. And then he told me that they were going to take pictures and give an estimate of what the damage was going to cost but instead of paying it to send it to him and he would look it over and see if the damage was worth what they are claiming and if not he would negotiate with them. I feel so blessed to have him on our side though because they really tried to screw us over. And the shady thing is before he talked to them and he was just on the phone with me he told them to just pay what they say but after talking to them he told us to not do anything until he said it was okay. So he obviously got a pretty shady vibe from them.

I hope everything works out. This whole situation sucks a lot. I don't like being told by a pretty much complete stranger how much Edith and I suck at life. I think it's a bit ridiculous that she brought our character into question.

I mean living here in general hasn't been great. We got told day 3 that we had quiet hours and we weren't allowed to bring many people over. It's silly. This whole situation is ridiculous.

Current Location: Worst apartment ever

I'm apparently too lazy to actually go find my real journal so I figured I would write in this.
We are moving out of the apartment of Love in a week and a half and it's very sad. I hated having the landlord next door and I hated the shower and I hated how small it was for the cats and I hated the downstairs neighbors but in general this was a pretty good set up. All of my fears of living alone with Edith were completely shot down because it was by far the best living situation I've ever in and I've never felt closer to her in my life, which is good.
I'm really happy to be home. Sometimes I regretted it, like finding work is literally impossible and I miss my old job and my college friends and everything but last night I was walking around the drive-in and I was walking back to my friends and I had this feeling of absolute content. It just felt completely right. I don't know, I just like moments like that I guess.
The future scares me.
Love, Cara

I have at least two hours before Edith wakes up and I am a tad bored.

The email I sent Joey, the whole situation makes me so unbelieveably sad.

So I guess goodbye. Sorry for the way it went down. I wish you didn't hate me but I guess it doesn't matter since it's mutual. You may be mad at me and that's fine, but seriously be mad at me for the right reasons. You know for a fact that the only person I didn't "introduce" you to was Austin, and tonight's really the first time I've actually met him so I'm sorry. Also, we didn't steal your alcohol so you need to get off that and disrespectful, are you kidding me? By the way, we could hear all the shit you were talking about us. Why the hell do you think we left so abruptly? It was because I was so uncomfortable in your house, with all the shit you were talking about all of us and especially me in person. You are a conceited asshole when you drink and are uncensored. You also think we were dicks but you kept complaining about how we weren't drinking and then gave us alcohol so what the heck. It's not exactly like you told us to come and join the party. You were all so judgemental of us. Also, I don't enjoy the fact that your one friend was literally pushing me out of the way and that Big Chris was just coming up to me and telling me I was dumb, it doesn't sit well with people.

Also, the way that you and Big Chris called and yelled at me was completely unneccessary. You obviously don't want to be my friend considering the things that you said about me at the party and the way that you both talked to me on the phone. I put up with so much shit from you and maybe that's my fault and I'm not saying that you don't put up with some of mine but still, I would have never treated you like that ever in my life.

Eh, well, what can you do?

Love, Cara

Alright, so Joey invited us to a party at his house and we didn't really want to go but then we did. It was so bad. Everyone was so mean to us. It was terrible. I don't want to rewrite it because it was so embarrassing and they were so mean. But Heather did steal a huge Swedish bottle of Vodka, thank God. Joey called on the way home(cause we booked it), and I have to play A-Holenow so I'll write more later.
