The Best of Melissa's 2013
Best song of 2013?
This isn't from 2013, but I found myself humming/singing it constantly.
Catchphrase you couldn’t stop saying this year
NBD. I'm starting to annoy myself.
Most surprising thing in 2013
Foie gras gum is a thing! Created by the devil.
Jason Segel, I love your awkwardly tall body, dopey-sexy voice, and portrayal of an über-sensitive 1980s drummer boy.
Michelle Williams and her pixie cut are the cutest. (And the line for Jennifer Lawrence is just so longggg.)
Estimated increase in time spent on Internet
I now keep my phone right next to my bed and check my email/Facebook/the weather/Twitter 7 seconds after completing my final dream cycle of the morning. Also, the Internet is kind of my boss? So...35% increase.
Estimated years until we have flying cars
I refuse to speculate. I won't be burned again.
What you learned from Sparklife
That NaNoWriMo is 5,000x more fun if I try it with Sparklers.
Whose hair you wanted this year
Connie Britton Rayna Jaymes, you are perfect woman. How do you manage to be the queen of country, raise two daughters, juggle sexy country star boyfriends, AND maintain your perfect hair all at the same time? Dear Santa, don't let Nashville get canceled this year! Sincerely, Melissa + the moms of America
Any photo I take of myself counts, right? Here, I screen-shot my starring turn in Liquid Kung Fu, a movie my friend Tim made in high school. I played the girl who has no sense of humor and breaks the guy's heart. HOLLYWOOD, WE NEED BETTER ROLES FOR WOMEN
Least favorite selfie that you still have for some reason
Bo Larkin and I had a selfie competition. We both lost with this round.
Best thing that happened to you
Managing to fight my way through 17 lines of defense (including a Big Boss and a water level) to make it onto the deck of the good ship SparkLife. I'M WRITING THIS FROM INSIDE THE BUILDING. It smells like donuts and Dagger's JGL-scented body pillow.
Most embarrassing moment
All the times I meant to text ABOUT somebody, then texted TO them instead. Then had to be like, "HAHAHA, AMIRITE."
Favorite thing you wrote
Gross food reviews continue to bring me candy-sushi levels of joy.
Favorite SparkLife post you read
Auntie speaks the truth, Bo Larkin and Caitlin Jefko are amazing art updaters, Jono is my favorite Secret Santa 4 lyfe, Dan's flirting guide is the reason I'm currently in a Monaco nightclub with Channing Tatum and The Rock, and I'm shooting the ground around Josh's feet right now in hopes of "encouraging" him to review more reviews.
Favorite piece of clothing/accessory
Jeans, glorious jeans! Pretty much the same pair 4 to 6 days a week, unless it's over 80 degrees.
Favorite movie of 2013
I can't remember half the things I've seen, so I'm just going to go with Much Ado About Nothing. Also American Hustle, even though the people behind me in the theater kept dropping things on the floor, turning on their flashlight apps, and fighting over who had to leave the theater to get more soda.
