goober love

the other night i went to downtown Disney with Jennifer and Michelle, when heading back to the car we walked right past Justin Long (aka the mac guy). nobody saw him but me, but i knew it was him. we connected ~with our eyes.~ but our romance is not part of this story. the fact is, it seems, is that nobody is attracted to him in the slightest. why? “he’s such a goober.” well, i have to ask, what’s wrong with that? according to urban dictionary, a goober is “just a kindhearted, rather oblivious goofball. it's term of endearment really. it comes from the ancient scottish verb 'to goub,' which has to do with doing a dance and smiling sheepishly while doing so, exposing the goubs in one's teeth.” now, i’m not sure how accurate this definition is, but i still see nothing wrong with it. i’m not saying he’s the hottest guy in the world--if i still made lists, he wouldn’t even make the top ten--but now i feel the need to defend him. many women are attracted to “goobers” because they have better personalities than an above-average joe. how else would you explain the obsession with Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, or even Paul Rudd? 14 year old girls swoon over Joe Jonas, but once he acts like a goob, he can even win the attraction of a hottie-mc.tottie college girl. so, show me a goober and i'll, you, uh, that he's the best. or fine.. or whatever.

freshman year

"i seriously do not understand why people like hidden valley ranch! no other ranch tastes like that, so RANCH therefore should NOT taste like that, right?? i don't know. i find it really disgusting. i didn't actually eat anything with ranch today, but i was thinking about it. sometimes the dining hall has hidden valley ranch and sometimes it has good ranch. when we come in, we have to check. 'how's the ranch today?'"
