To my dearest Maryanne, my sparkling moonbeam and fluorescent flower scented ferret.
I find myself super excited for this upcoming arizona trip! I am stoked to see you and can’t wait. I have slowly been creating a list of things I want to do, but most importantly do with you…
1. Drink a little too much. I love the moments when just you and me are a little tipsier than everyone else. It makes me feel as funny as you think I am.
2. Go on a hike and complain about how hot it is while you and chris constantly tell me to be careful.
3. Go to woowoo stores. I am on the hunt for some lodestone and I don’t know if I will ever find it but hopefully you will bring me luck.
4. Talk into the wee hours of the morning.
5. Talk astrology and diagnose people in front of them as if they were not there.
6. Convince you that Captain America is not a Pansy Ass
7. Come up with more things to do together.

This week I haven’t really done much but think about what I could be or should be doing. I have been a stress case. As you probably have noticed from the surplus of texts between you and I. I went on a spontaneous trip yesterday that brought me all over southern california and I hope to do the same thing with you when you are out here.
In exciting news I got my fitbit! So my dieting life should get momentarily fun again! This post is more about updating you on my life. Even though you hear me talk about it all the time….. Well I’m broken.


Let Me Tell You A Poorly Told Story

dancing chelso

There once was a beautiful, courageous and cunning gal named Chelsea who befriended a ridiculous person named Maryanne. Through this friendship Chelsea changed Maryanne’s worldview and let her run wild. She even offered to let her sit in the desert to stare and feel some sort of life fulfillment out of it.

Chelsea lived, heart filled with glory, wielding incomprehensible skills in crafting the perfect gluten-less apple pie. Much like her apple pie, her words were full of flavor and struck you to your soul. So she marched forth, taking out problems one by one with her random pockets of knowledge and fierce humor.

In conclusion, Chelsea stole all of our hearts in one way or another. (The End)

Chelsea you’re wonderful, this was my attempt to describe the ways in which you are. You are one of the funniest people I’ve ever met, with some of the best one-liners I’ve ever heard. I won’t even bother trying to put any of them into words because I would paraphrase them into garbage.

You’re brave and talented and protective of the people you love. And I think you’re awesome for always expressing how you feel about something. You are always able to cut through the chaos and crap of a situation, and I cannot count the times that I am envious of your clarity in which you see the world.

I’m lucky to know someone like you! Also sorry for the short post. I look forward to seeing your post this week!

Humor at its Finest


Upon being encouraged by friends to perform some high quality comedy, I found myself on a Tuesday night at a lovely establishment that allows the public to come in and try their hand at being funny. I was warned it was going to be a tough crowd. The crowd was mostly comprised of other performers, so toughness was not surprising.

My friends and I then watched these performers say things that made me worry for their legal stances in life. But I suppose that’s what comedy is for: saying things that no one else is willing to admit in public. Some of the comedians got some good laughs out of me, others made me feel uncomfortable.

Regardless, I was nervous. I was sweating. So to gain the confidence to perform I definitely drank. Five minutes of fame, I spoke of my awkward encounters I’ve had along the trail of job hunting. I also spoke of my awkward encounters involving different religions. It was fun, it was weird, and it was healthy. I recommend everyone make themselves look like a fool for five minutes on a public stage. Could be a stage in a little bar on the edge of town, or it could be a large stage in front of the school – just go make a fool of yourself. Unless you’re the president, perhaps that wouldn’t be the best course of action for you.

I had maybe two giggles from the crowd that wasn’t a part of my friend group, I would say that is some solid success. If you want to watch me make a fool of myself, the YouTube video exists here:

Also, Chelsea Mow your post brought me tears it touched me so much! I couldn’t imagine a life without my other Mow! I look forward to your post on Friday!

What I love about Maryanne.

hotdogHerroh Mern! Suhprizeeee my post is about you! And all the things I most adore…about you.  I am also going to try to bring forth photo evidence.

I love that you are so comically weird. Shamlessly outlandish.

I love that you say exactly what your thinking without wasting time on finesse.
I love that you are strong and endure despite full realization of how truly strong you are.
I love that you laugh at almost all my dumb jokes.

I love that you cant paraphrase to save you life.

I love that you find beauty in the most ugly and broken things.

I love that you love making people uncomfortable because its funny.

Lastly its pretty sweet that we are pretty awesome pretty cool friends.


Sorry it was kind of short but this is what I felt like doing for mine!

With an awkward smile and an uncomfortable smile,



Who am I? Well my name is Chelsea and I am a strange blend of creativity and practicality. I am jagged and sharp and never tread lightly. I am one of the halves of Mow and Mow. I am 22 years old and live in the lovely state of California. I start graduate school in August and until then I am doing a whole lot of nothing. It will be easier to show you who I am once I give you my ten things that make me, me!
Post Date: Friday
1. Movies. I love movies. I don’t love all movies and I am a critic, if you liked it I probably hated it. For me moving watching is about getting away for a couple of hours where stress and daily troubles can’t find me because I am immersed into the beauty of film. It is also about finding a pearl in a sea of stinky oysters.  My favorite movie going partner is my boyfriend, Chris and that is where a good portion of our finances go. Get me a bag of popcorn and we are golden

2. Reading. I suppose this isnt doing a great job of describing me given that I am picking all of my personal escapes, but I suppose that has a lot to say about me. I love fiction, anything fiction. From Fantasy to elizabethan classics. I love them all for different reasons, and I love the way a good book makes me feel. It challenges me to revisit my world veiw

3. Writing. Something that helps me process all of my angst. It teaches me about myself and other people. It is something that helps me feel good about myself and it gives me an outlet for all my creativity. People don’t peg me as creative due to my assertiveness and it has been a vehicle for me to express my multiple dimensions. (I am just sooo deep) but yeah!

4. Driving in my car. I am a proud subaru driver and a very proud former volvo driver. My favorite moments have been in my car, from singing loudly with the windows down. In my car I have let out warrior cries on my rough days. I am always the first to volunteer to drive, unless it’s at night because I’m practically blind.

5. My morning cup of coffee. I have gone on many diets and stints to lose weight but my morning coffee is excluded from calorie counting. All my mornings are filled with a warm cup of coffee doused in vanilla creamer. It is a warm hug that doesn’t violate my personal space.

6. Fitness. I may fluctuate my weight more than Oprah but I love fitness. It awakens my viking blood and makes me feel a sense of pride that is simply unique to any other feeling. It makes me feel in control of my life which is really my prime source of comfort.

7. Spirituality. My faith and belief systems have changed throughout the years. I don’t know who or what exactly I pray to but I do daily. I have found my way into a metaphysical approach. It has brought me inner peace while my outside remains my rigid self.

8.My Pillow. I have a tempurpedic pillow that might be my soulmate. I am not a good sleeper. I’m just not but with my pillow beneath my head I can feel pretty darn comfy.

9.Friends. I know how cliche that sounds but its true. I am the type of person that only has an inner circle. I only like friendships with people who do not exhaust me. I like equal relationships where everyone puts in the same amount of effort. I don’t do freeloaders.

10. Mojitos. Nothing brings life to my life like a refreshing mojito. There really isn’t much more to say.

About a Mow


This Mow is arguably odd. My name is Maryanne enjoy weird things in life and I occasionally rant about something that I will randomly feel very strongly about. But overall, I enjoy centering on the amusing aspects of life and social interaction. When there’s the occasion where I am not sure how I feel about a social interaction, I tend to seek the other Mow for insight. She is a wise Mow.

Ten things I cannot live without: 

1. Water. I think it’s important to have around. My body gets very upset when it’s dehydrated.

2. My cat. She is fat and when I am not near her I long for her loud and obnoxious company.

3. Other Mow. Invaluable friend, I cannot imagine a life without her influence.

4. Hotdogs.

5. Spontaneous adventures. There’s nothing more thrilling.

6. Inside jokes.

7. A good story.

8. Indoor plumbing.

9. Cappuccino foam.

10. I’ll be sentimental and say family. I love my weird weird family.

I am very excited to be a part of this blog with my fellow Mow and I look forward to the posts we will create! I will be planning to take on posting Mondays, and will commit to any punishment that comes my way if I fail to do this. May the blogging begin!

Greetings! How about an Introduction?

In order to get to know us better and really get into the blogging spirit lets do an “About Me”. Give us a gist of your personality then pick ten items you simply can’t live without. Also in this introduction pick what day a week you will post by! Every week we will be required to post something whether it be a list of what we did this week or simply a fun internet challenge you read about. Or maybe a question or an article? Craft pictures! You name it!
However… There does need to be some motivation to keep on track, if you fail to post late without a legitimate excuse the other Mow gets to pick your punishment. Sounds fair to me. Looking forward to hearing from you!
