Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Friends, Mouthguards, & Lena Luthor...Oh, My!

I am officially nine episodes into Friends and I still can't tell if I like it. I mean, I don't despise it. It doesn't feel like a chore. It's just kinda nice background noise?

Am I supposed to hate Joey because I don't??? He's really out there trying to make his dream of being an actor come true. But Ross?? Fork that dude. Like, I get it. It sucks that your wife left you...in any other circumstance except this one. Did you really want to spend your life with someone who's inherently NOT attracted to you??? Cause that sounds pretty miserable if you ask me.

Do I remember Ross' ex-wife's girlfriend's name? No. Do I love her? Yes. Ross is out here tryna make her feel bad for talking to the baby before it's been born. Bro, that's normal??? I think they're trying to make it so I'm supposed to be sympathizing with Ross, but I'm 100000% not. Dude also thinks he has some sort of claim over Rachel because of how long he's had a crush on her. He didn't even contribute to helping Rachel afford to fly home to see her family for Thanksgiving??? And he's pouty as hell??? No thank you.

In other news, I had to buy a mouthguard-retainer-thing at Target yesterday. Yes, ladies, I am SHOCKINGLY single.

The reason being is that I noticed my top row of teeth is starting to gap a little bit and while I find gap teeth unfairly charming, I would like just a little bit of the effects of my old braces to last. Otherwise, I went through middle looking like a buffoon for NOTHING.

So that's where my life's at right now. I think I might being pausing my Friends binge to watch the new Netflix show Mindhunter with Jonathon Groff because I love my boy JGroff.

Also, here's your weekly reminder that I am ride or die for Lena Luthor and she's a total lesbian:

Tina + Lena Luthor = ❤️

Somebody carve that into a tree for me.
