Because Bill.

Living with someone can be a challenge at times; married, roommates or civil union; regardless of your living situation, sometimes a challenge can occur. I for one cannot complain. When Liz moved in with me three years ago, I did not know her at all, it was like a blind date… Well, that “blind date” (because making this even more awkward is a must) turned out very well!  I’ve come to call her friend, we’ve traveled to Scotland, we laugh at dumb things, have some serious conversations, I got her to watch LOST, she got me into Doctor Who (thanks for that), I call her Liz Lemon sometimes.. Regardless if she likes it or not, for her birthday last year I put Nick Cage faces everywhere and last Christmas she retaliated with this..

If you ever need an alarmingly way to wake up, may I suggest putting Mr. Bean in your shower.

However, one thing stands between us.. It’s not super duper major, but it is alarming.  While watching one of my favorite movies; ‘What About Bob’, Liz quietly watched it with me and then outspokenly said, “I don’t like Bill Murray.. Eck.”

How can one NOT like Bill? I mean… It’s Bill!

She has explained her reasons why she doesn’t like Bill, I have refused to hear her words.  So, what I’m proposing to hopefully some day happen is a meeting between the two.  I keep reading stories of Bill popping up at random places like a bachelor party, going to an ice cream social, sing karaoke and play kick ball .  Bill is everywhere!  I have nothing amazing to persuade Bill into coming to the big city of Wichita, KS.. Maybe some tacos and pie will get him here.  I don’t know.. Regardless, I think it would be humorous if Liz had dinner with Bill Murray, share some conversation, life lessons learned and see the charm that’s Bill.

Also, she doesn’t like the movie What About Bob.  Guess who’s going to get 10 copies of that DVD….  This has become my new mission in life, mainly because Liz will hate it and I’ll get a laugh.  If somehow this makes it across the interweb, I’d like to hope that somehow Bill will see this and come to Wichita.  But if that never happens, which I’m absolutely sure it won’t, Liz gets the pleasure of parking behind my Jeep from time to time… When she does, she gets to see Bill…

So I have that at least.

So, dearest Bill… Please come to Wichita! Please come to the land of ICT! We promise to make it somewhat less boring. My friend would love it, well maybe not, I’d love it though! Drinks on me! Free drinks Bill, think about it!
Sincerely, Cassie. The Bill fan!

If this does anything, my next mission is Benedict Cumberbatch.. That is, me meeting him.

Friends, hands & junk.

I once read somewhere, that if two friends have a friendship that last longer then ten years, they’ll be friends for life. I have no idea if that is true, but in my case with my friend.. my best friend, Camissa we’ve been friends for well over ten years. Friendship is a great thing to have, now even though I’ll talk about my best friend in this post, I have many other friends that I hold dear.  They each hold something dear in my life and I’m very grateful to have met them, know them, and have fun times with them.  Of course, sometimes friendships sadly fade away, it hurts, really hurts, but one must move on in life.  Another great thing about friendships.. You get to make new ones! I simply cannot express into words how thankful I am right now, in my life to have gotten to know some amazing people!

It all started with youth group, Rachelle’s bible study and Clone High.  Those three things, started off this friendship. Who would have thought that having a conversation about a cartoon that lasted maybe a month on MTV would end up being a friendship still holding true today.  Amazingly enough, we still have the most weirdest conversations.  That is okay, it’s what makes our time together fun!  When Camissa and her husband moved to DC a few years back, we thought it was cute and funny how other people around us asked if we would be okay living so far away from each other.  People were seriously concerned, I took it all in stride and told everyone that it’d be okay.  It was, it really was… Facebook does come in handy sometimes.  They did move back, so of course nothing changed and we hang out when we can and do what we do best… We like to have a good time, all the time.  That even includes the time I not only once but twice adjusted her passenger seat and laid it all the way back, it was still surprising the second time.  That one time, I met Mat Kearney and then proceeded to ask her, “who was that?”  She, ever being polite simply responded, “he’s the guy we came to see perform.”  I’ve gotten her to watch Sherlock, which she likes and Doctor Who, which she is watching…  one episode at a time… Baby steps.  Lastly, the ski trip from hell, in which caused me having knee surgery and her to take five hours to go down the green slope. Okay, it wasn’t five hours… But I’m pretty sure it felt like it.

Obviously, had to keep the challenge going, so I took some current photos of us… And you know how we be, showing off our Shocker pride!

You’re the best, friend!

Since I’m about two or three days behind, I will now move to the next challenge on the list, and since I had a willing helper.. Or actually she was there and I took the opportunity, I took more of her… hands.

Yeah… It was after the Shocker game and we have every right to show off that 25-0! BOOM!

Image

Image

Showing off them hands… What a model of hands!

Image

Showing off that sexy Benson paw!

Thought I’d join in and show off my hand.. The scar, which I thought was due to a janky chain that held up the swing, turned out to be wrong. Well, at least that’s what my mom says.. Maybe I was probed by aliens.

The end this post, I will now show you my junk… all that junk… all that junk in dat drawer..
