Never have the JoBros looked cooler

Update: Still sick. But I want to thank everyone for the nice comments on my last post. I'm sorry I was all "bleahhhhhehhhh" (my vocabulary knows no bounds). Lameness aside, I'd like to share something that made me giddy today, despite my relative static state of doing nothing.

What's Lovely for January 23, 2010: Mom buying Jonas Brothers folders...

...and her explanation why she purchased them. Here's how the conversation roughly went after I trudged out of my room without my glasses on, only to discover something unexpected.

Me: (squints) Mom, are these Jonas Brothers folders?!
Mom: Don't blame me! It's crazy, they were the cheapest folders, and you know how cheap I am!
Me: (howls) Jonas Brothers?!
Mom: I was so embarrassed at the check-out counter!
Me: Do you know who these guys are?? They're a band for pre-teenage girls!
Mom: Don't worry, I'm going to put labels over their faces!

And that's exactly what she did.

I sorta couldn't stop laughing and chortling and giggling and cackling. And Kevin, really? Heels? Come on.

Mom: Oh be quiet!

Haha awesome! I'd do exactly the same. I must say though, if it were a Hannah Montana or any other pre-teen-Disney-girl merchandise I would've prefered to chuck it away or cover it up completely. I'm sick of Selena and them already and hardly anyone in NZ even cares to know who they are.

Haha, I'm so glad my mom's a hit! Thanks, everyone. I'm sure the Jonas Brothers appreciate it. :)

maybe she should do this lol
Last month was my sister's birthday. She opened a present and was shocked to find a magazine filled with pictures of Miley Cyrus and the Jonas brothers. She was confused until pointed out that there was something else in the bag. She reached in and pulled out a pack of sharpies. She spent the next 2 hours drawing horns, moustaches and gotees on all the pictures in the magazine. Best birthday present ever? I think so.
