adding ginger to your sass

GingerSass - adding ginger to your sass

So I went to a sorority formal…

As you might have gathered from the PAD Challenge poem I wrote the other day, V is a sorority girl.


I haven’t exactly had the best opinion of sorority girls before. In fact, I kind of viewed them as stereotypical blonde bitches with lots and lots of pink attached to their lives.


V definitely doesn’t fit that stereotype.


She asked me to be her date to her sorority’s formal, and I agreed, with a lot of stereotypes being muttered at the back of my head.


The formal itself turned out to be very different from what I expected, and we left early because (surprise!) it was at a hookah lounge and our allergies were bothering us.



We ended up going to a diner that had been on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, which was pretty cool. V had a peanut butter chocolate chip pancake mountain, which was pretty incredible, and I had a loaded baked potato omelet, which was also  delicious. We had a lovely night out, and although my idea of sororities wasn’t exactly improved, I’m definitely trying to be more open-minded about sorority chicks.


Plus, I like dressing up.




Don’t we look snazzy? V’s face shared with her permission. <3


Did you ever belong to a sorority or fraternity? Were you like the ones on tv?

PAD Challenge, Day 27

4/27/2013- a “mechanical” poem (i chose to substitute mechanics for recipe)

how to toast a sorority girl

previously, in my mind,
a sorority girl was a simple recipe:

1 part giggles
2 parts tits
1/80 part dignity
3 parts superficiality
1 part loyalty
1/2 part bitch
1/2 part crazy
2 1/2 parts pink
and sprinkled with as much school spirit as the booze would provide.

for the past 5 years, my recipe proved to be pretty solid,
with only the occasional modification.
that was, until now.

now i’m dressed in
3 parts hairspray
1 part new dress
1 part nice shoes
2 parts makeup
and 1 part biting my tongue

for my

4 parts butch
2 parts secretly girly
2 parts kindhearted
1 part silly
1 part tux
1 part bow tie
all parts love

a-typical sorority-girl girlfriend.
