I have an odd relationship with my younger and only blood-related sister (my cousins are basically my siblings too, but that’s for a different post).
We had a debate on whether or not tree trunks are brown.
I fail to imagine her complexly. Instead, I imagine her as a dancing jar of peanut butter…
I fail to imagine you complexly as well, so we’re even.
I approve of 3 of those nicknames.
I did not name her something new every day. I just couldn’t decide what name would fit her and I like strange names. I thought of lots of interesting (though terrible) names, and you chose Silver. Wow. Name a gray cat Silver. SO creative. *scoffs at you*
You were the reason I skipped a grade, I think.
There are no adequate words for what you are, Alyssa, and thus the only way to describe you is by using you to describe yourself.
You DO make your bed at odd times. Make it when you wake up or during DAYLIGHT hours, at least. Not RIGHT BEFORE YOU SLEEP IN IT. It doesn’t make sense! YOU ARE JUST ABOUT TO MESS IT UP. Why? Why Alyssa? Why do you do this? I don’t understand!
*glares at you and skips over*
I will admit that POSSIBLY I may have done that. BUT since I don’t really remember and when I would have I said it didn’t happen, I’m sticking with that.
Our Venn diagrams of nerd fandoms/groups do intersect a great deal, but we differ strongly in that you are a science nerd and I am an art nerd.
In my defense, most of the time I have headphones on indicating, “Do not talk to me. I will probably not hear a thing you are saying or notice I’m supposed to be in a conversation with you.” You flat-out ignore this and talk to me anyways, yet expect me to notice, hear, and understand what you’re saying. Still, in your defense, when I don’t have headphones on, this still happens. I’m just that oblivious and my hearing is just that wonky.
If I remember correctly, it was my friends who referred to my hair as Hypotenuse Hair first, but I could easily be wrong. I agree with the mermaid hair comment. I’m just going to take this section as a compliment.
I don’t remember that, and I apologize. I was a very violent person and I hit people a lot. I just remember kicking shins. I have very weak punches, but strong kicks. I am disappointed in myself for being proud of having made a boy (a jerkface who deserved it) cry once just by kicking him really hard in the shin (I didn’t really hurt him or anything, he was just a baby about it). I stopped being violent around the end of junior high, and I feel terrible about being so okay with hurting people, so sorry everyone I ever kicked or otherwise bodily injured. Especially you, Alyssa, because you got the brunt of my violence from all the way back when I was just a baby and I bit you and made you bleed. Sorry. :(
Ha ha ha you make it sound like you almost broke my arm or my neck. You just smushed my fingers a little. They were maybe a little bruised and sprained or something and probably only took a week or two to heal. *ignoring the Cupcake comment*
*nods approvingly* …wait “sometimes?” (just kidding, I know I’m often wrong about things)
Did I seriously do that? Huh. Ha ha. I always get compliments on the hats and scarves you make me. You’re good at knitting.
I disagree and think we don’t really look at all alike, but other people seem to agree with you so whatever. *shrugs*
*blushes* I disagree about drawing and writing, or more like, I think I don’t do them as well as you say.
Not finishing is one my favorite things to [not?] do to annoy you, and you do that cringe face thing every single time and make it so worth it. Most of those books I didn’t read, but merely looked at because they had pictures of places I’m thinking of using in the setting of my story. I actually kept quite faithful to Brisingr, though I didn’t finish it for an age as you say, and that is not unusual for me at all. I just wish I had finished it by the time I had promised in the first place. I don’t like breaking promises.
*laughs and agrees*
Our conversations can be very strange and HILARIOUS. And yeah, our conversations tend to be debates. They usually aren’t arguments, though, because I’m not actually angry or being serious about it.
That reminds me, I need to buy Skittles.
Um…yeah. I do cook creatively. Asking me to explain is a bad idea because I’m terrible at explaining or describing things and I have no idea how to describe what my cooking is like. It tastes good 90% of the time, in my opinion, and I’ve (luckily for my aunt’s kitchen and everyone who has to live in the same house with me) grown out of the phase where my cooking was creatively terrible and a little frightening. Sometimes other people will even eat my food without giving me that look of trepidation! :D
Oh, I appreciate it VERY much. I heartily encourage you to make YGOTAS references to earn Skittles. It is an easy way to make me very happy. No one but Larissa ever makes YGOTAS references with me, and she can’t really do that anymore. :(
Tricky trickster who tricks.
Again, I am incredibly oblivious. I realize this. It is probably not the best thing for an artist, but I notice other things that make that okay, and it’s apparently incredibly amusing to those around me, so I will humor you all and allow you your pranks and teasings (aren’t I so generous? :) ).
Well, I went away for all of a few days and was at college for all of one night, so you’re stuck with me for a while longer and will probably be given the honor of being the first one out of the house instead of me.
You’re neat too. I brag about you all the time. I have been horribly mean to you, and will forever feel guilty about it, so you are allowed to annoy me with daily rants about whatever you are positively or negatively passionate about at that moment that I will mostly ignore in favor of whatever you interrupted me in the middle of doing. I don’t know who tease who more, actually. We didn’t fight so much as I bullied you, you did nothing, and we argued instead of debated. The only thing that is the same is we still sometimes argue and I still tease you (though you now tease back) and I am very glad so much has changed.
Waffles, I wouldn’t trade you either (except if I got either or both of the vlogbrothers, Stephen Fry, yuumei, or a living Audrey Hepburn as a sibling - in which case I imagine you would allow it).
YES! I missed most of those puns until you said there were puns and I (stupidly) read the paragraph again (this is probably not flattering to my intelligence).
I am lucky enough that all the people I am close to I can be silly with, though different types of silly and in diffferent degrees. I’m proud to have you, [hilariously ridiculous, brilliant, annoying] Alyssa, as my sister. :)
