Hey there PLL land, I'm Whitney and today I'm going to fill in for our resident blogging queen while she is off doing grown up things and perfecting her PLL Palace.
If you are wondering who I am or where I came from, my space (not to be confused with MySpace) of the interwebz world is called I Wore Yoga Pants to Work. Feel free to stop by and say hi!
I don't know about you all but after seeing all of the stress our girl is going through with her new digs and grown up life, I couldn't help but think how stressful life in the 90's was like. Even before we were forced to
pretend to be grown ups.
From what I can gather, PLL has been getting a little bit of slack in the internetz department for not being the post master she once was. Well, aside from doing big girl, grown up things - let's not forget, if this was the days of Xanga she might not be posting as much because someone is on the phone, hogging all of the internet connection.
Cut a girl some slack... Aint nobody got time for that!
Who remembers the days when perfecting our AIM away messages were our biggest stressors?
The days when having an away message that resembled this one made you really cool, but it sure was stressful figuring out how to make it look that way.
I mean, Google was just a small twinkle in our eyes and there was no way you could just go ask Jenny how she made hers look so nifty. Nope, you were going to be cool all on your own - no matter how stressful it might have been.
Or maybe that was just me. All I know is that I lost some serious sleep over the infamous fading away message.
Then our girl found a SPIDER with legs longer than Sadie's up in her Palace. Can you imagine the stress that caused? I don't even want to think about it but I have a feeling if it were the 90's it would be comparable to waking up to your Furby talking to you in the middle of the night.
Waking up to those big, plastic eyes staring at you while he insists you tickle his tummy is just horrifying.
Once again, more sleep lost.
And then poor PLL's new sink made a huge mess in her new Palace. HORRIBLE.
You know what this would be equivalent to in the 90's?
Getting slimed was a reoccurring nightmare for me.
I mean, all of that green goo in my (not even fake, at the time) blonde hair? Talk about horrifying.
The good news about all of this?
Now days, we can reach for the box of wine instead of the box of Hi-C Ecto Cooler.
Way more effective, if you ask me.
PLL, keep your head up sister friend. Your pretty Palace is going to be full of sparkles and faucets that don't leak in no time. In the mean time, pass around the Chardonnay and be thankful you don't have to wait for your mom to get off the phone with her BFF so you can post a new meme to your Xanga account!
