When Elliot Reid is tumblr
me about Aaron Tveit
Nine sexy people wearing vests.
Some people don’t understand why I’m so obsessed with vests.
Well, here is the reason.
Waistcoats FOR THE WIN.
*waves hands wildly in circular patterns*
THIS. ALL OF THIS. ALLLLL OF THIS.
My mum just asked me if I could let go of my vest for a while.
NEVVVVVVERRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!! Because reasons.
AND MIGHT I ADD:
excuse me you forgot this
Angie, is this you? Otherwise, hello, anon! And thanks for the questions!
2. Drunken story time.
I’ve never been drunk. Le gasp. I have been tipsy. I’m sure everyone is sick of hearing this story, but it’s the only one I’ve got. I’ve only been drinking alcohol for 11 months, okay? (aka I started when I turned 21) So, my stepdad was making me and Mouse some cream-tinis (pineapple juice and whipped cream vodka aka one of the best drinks ever, besides sweet tea vodka). It is my stepdad’s ambition to get me drunk and it hasn’t happened yet. Also, yes, I drink at home. So he was pushing the drinks on me faster than I could finish and we were watching The Grey with Liam Neeson. That movie is so boring and so slow and I was just so mad that I started yelling at the TV “LIAM NEESON, HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO US? WE TRUSTED YOU! AND NOW WE HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THIS CRAP?!”
5. Favorite TV show.
I don’t have one! But I’d say Smallville or Doctor Who.
6. What your last received text message says.
“It’s an ecocritical comparison and contrast of two plays. I’m choosing Much Ado and The Tempest” typical English major text.
11. Favourite song
I’m gonna say “She Loves You” by the Beatles because there’s footage of me singing it at age 4. Also, that song is awesome.
23. Ever been cheated on?
No, but I was a wee bit suspicious of my ex. One of many reasons we broke up.
17. See question above.
30. Most traumatic experience.
I honestly don’t know which one was the most because I have a lot, unfortunately. I think it’s a tie between when I was 8 and my mom broke down Reg’s front door, dragged me out by my hair, then smacked me until my nose almost bled and two summers ago, when my mom went at my stepdad with some scissors and smacked me when I jumped between them. Hiding in the closet on Sundays from age 5-9 was pretty bad too. My mom had a regular thing of getting wasted after church and then just going crazy and then my dad would hide me (sometimes with me) in the guest room closet until she went to sleep. Also, when I was 11, I was at my now cousin’s house and I slept over. I woke up and her male cousin had his hand down my pants. I don’t think that counts as abuse, but definitely molestation. I freaked out and hit him. He backed off and I was too scared to go home, so I just stayed awake for most of the night then told my parents a year later. I just tried to block it out.
20. Opinion of an age difference in a relationship.
As long as they’re over the age of consent, I’m fine with it, but personally, I wouldn’t want it too far apart. Like Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, he’s two years older than her dad. That’s a bit weird, but hey, if you’re happy.
1. Tell me about your ex.
Ha! His name was Adam. We were 16/17 (we dated into both of our 17th birthdays). He was nice, but not driven or passionate about much. He never wanted to do anything, except just hang around. I would have to beg him to get him to even take me to the movies. It was my first relationship, so I learned a lot about what I don’t want. It ended because of him becoming so complacent and not going anywhere. Also, his friends called me a “bitch” and he didn’t do anything about it which is crappy. I can defend myself, but if you say you love me, you should be defending me too. I asked him to tell me how he was going to change and make our relationship better, just prove to me that we’re worth it and he told me “I made a list of things, but then I didn’t do any of them” and then we were done. I don’t regret it because it taught me a lot, but I’m never dating another Adam again.
3. A secret you haven’t told many people.
I don’t have many secrets, but this is one that I have been thinking about lately. When I was young and my parents were drunk, fighting, or both, I would go into my bathroom, get down on the tile and pray to God to take me home because I didn’t feel safe anywhere else. I didn’t know what home felt like. I asked Him to let me wake up because this had to be a nightmare and that somewhere I must have a family that’s safe and loves me. I really haven’t told anyone that. So, I guess besides that story, my secret is that I’ve never really known what it feels like to be safe and comfortable.
7. What last made you laugh until you cried.
I was talking to Slim about me wanting her to draw me a dragon and then I was like “or…a dragon” pause “or a dragon” and then I talked about if Homeland Security was tapping our phones then they’d have the weirdest conversation ever to listen to. Often, when I talk to Slim, I end up laughing til I cry. One of the best things about our friendship is how much we laugh
28. Best friend on tumblr
She’s also my best friend in real life, Reg.

14. Craziest thing you’ve ever done.
Last performance of Godspell in the 8th grade, we all piled into a car. I was literally on the floor with our friend Shawn. We got pulled over. The cop didn’t even see us. Kelly got us out of it. Then we teepeed this girl’s house for her birthday. We need to do something better. That memory is way too old.

19. A story about you and your best friend
You’re asking about 22 years of stories, anon. Okay, so when Reg called me over to tell me that her sister Kelly had cancer, of course, we hugged and prayed. Then, I wanted to get her mind off it and asked if she wanted to watch a movie. We watched The Raiders of the Lost Ark and I made so many jokes during that movie, especially about how the snakes in the pit are actually welcome snakes and they wanted to give Indy a fruit basket, that she actually had a good time and laughed in one of, I’m sure, the worst days of her life.
21. A gif to describe how you feel right now
Wow, that was a lot. Good on you to anyone who actually read this.
17. Last awkward situation you were in…
This doesn’t sound too awkward, but considering I can’t stand this man, it was. So, as Slim knows, the chair of the English Department and I don’t always get along. I’d elaborate on why, but there are people that follow me here in real life and I wouldn’t want this to get back to him. Anyways, he’s a weird, spritely sort of fellow. I went into the English Office to get my English Honors Society cords for graduation (huzzah) and he was talking to the fabulous English secretary, Cindie. I didn’t want to interrupt, so I just stood there and then he’s like “So do you want to talk to me or Cindie?” and I’m thinking “Why the hell would I want to talk to you? I’m in Cindie’s office, not yours, you egomaniac!” But instead, I just awkwardly look at Cindie, who just looks back at me and then we both go “Here for the cords”. He starts singing that graduation march and I’m just like “Pls, shut up” and he’s like “We have better music though” and I just nod and say “Good” or something, wanting to get the hell out of there. I gave her $10 for them, but they were $9 and I just wanted to get the hell out of there. I seriously don’t care about the $1, just get me away from this man. She won’t let me leave because of this stupid dollar and then he’s like “Here, I’ll give you the dollar and then she can give me a dollar” and I’m just like “IT’S A FUCKING DOLLAR!” Then he gives me the dollar super slow and then I’m ready to bolt. Then he asks how big my graduating class is and I’m like “Dear GOD!” I told him that I didn’t know and that I just pay the fee, do the work, and sign the forms. He laughed and then looked like he wanted to say something else and I was just like “Thanks” and got the hell outta dodge. So, yeah. Ugh. I feel awful just telling it.
21. A gif to describe how you’re feeling right now.
29. The cutest thing anyone’s ever done for you.
Uhhh. When I had surgery, my bestie came over and it was in October, so she gave me this plastic pumpkin cup with some candy. It was silly, but it made me feel better.
thea described me as “indefatigable”
damn. i forgot to say thank you for that, thea!
I will gladly be your Khaleesi.
This message made me more emotional than it should have.
