I remember being a little girl, and my parents going out with Tim for their weekly bowling league. He always had some sort of present for me, and told me jokes that a young girl probably shouldn’t hear.
He’d sit me on his lap and tell me story after story, and he taught me how to shoot cucumber seeds across the room at people.
His house around Christmas time always was decorated so nicely, and he had this big bear that would hang out near the tree. I thought it was the coolest thing, and I loved to pretend like it was real and run away from it.
My parents have great stories about when they would go to games with them, and how he’d always start fights with other fans, and how they’d go tailgate with the players after the game.
He loathed his brother, Michael. He was the president of the “I hate Mike McCaskey” club. At his father’s funeral, the Packers sent flowers, and Tim promptly told them to “put them in the mens room”.
He was a good friend to my parents for a long time, and though in recent years they’d lost touch, he’s going to be greatly missed. He was a good man. A drunkard, a fighter, a joker, but still a genuinely good man. Even if he married a packer fan :).
RIP Mr. McCaskey, I will never forget you. Thank you for everything.
lol ummmm. That’s weird. I don’t think that picture is anywhere but facebook.
and that’s a horrible picture of me lol. Great day, bad picture.
Thanks for you honesty anon :) It really means a lot.
You’re right, sometimes I do get caught up in other people’s opinions sometimes, and sometimes I can be hard on people if they rub me the wrong way. I ~think those are just human reactions, and both are things that I’m aware of and trying to work on :).
I hope one way or another we get to know each other better. You seem like you’d be a good friend to have too. I really respect honesty in friends.
Hope all is well with you too!
Thought about? Yes. Had time to yet? Not so much lol.
:3 you’re adorable whoever you are and I’m sure I miss you too. <3. Love youu.
lol thanks duder. you too.
that was obnoxious.
Nope, I’m just genuinely curious. And I wanted specific examples because it’s something that I’m interested in. I don’t always realize when I do something to piss someone off, or give them a reason to dislike me.
I never said I’d try to argue it, I fully recognize and understand what you’re saying. It was a genuine curiosity.
Whether we chose to realize or accept it, we all do care what people think of us. I wasn’t looking for hate, I was looking for opinions because I’m someone who likes to know when I’ve done something to upset someone. I don’t like upsetting people, or being on their bad side, but I also don’t respect people who will say something but not have a good explanation for it. If someone calls me a bitch because they caught me on a bad day and I unknowingly gave them a look that they perceived to be condescending or rude; there was no way for them to know that it wasn’t what they thought, and I’d like a chance to explain myself.
I’m just a curious mind haha, especially when I’m bored. And that’s what I was. Curious and bored.
Thanks for the message though, anon :)
Nah, I don’t know any good cleaning songs off the top of my head. Except that Barney song.. clean up clean up everybody do your share..
haha I suppose it would depend on what type of shower ~experience you’re looking for
Shower like.. bathing? Or shower like.. a wedding shower or a baby shower?
Overall, yes, but it could be more toned.
Dude I was totally just doing the same thing, and then earlier I was watching the 3rd season of Skins. My life.
I don’t even want to do my own. lol I’ve been such a bum ALL day
oh haha, well alright then. Kind of creepy, but hey.. that’s tumblr for you.
I wasn’t upset, or getting my hopes up. I was laughing, and kind of saying “ah, oh well”. I know exactly what I am, honest haha. I promise you I’m not going to go around being like OH MY GOD THEY’RE MY BEST FRIENDS. Or friends at all for that matter. I said before, I know I’m a fan. I don’t deny that I’m a fan, haha. I don’t think I have any sort of ~chance with any of them, and quite honestly I don’t really think of any of them that way anymore anyways. As much as I love Jack, I’ve even sort of, dare I say, lost interest.
What I meant by the tweet was that it felt kind of awkward being referred to as a fan (though, again, I completely accept that that’s what I am) because let’s face it, the stereotypical All Time Low fan is between the ages of 13-17, madly in love with one of the members of the band, and quite frankly; bitchy and territorial. For as much as I love all of my friends who I’ve met more or less because All Time Low exists, there are tons of All Time Low fans who are just horrid. It’s a constant battle. People are constantly fighting about something to do with the band, and it’s obnoxious. Being lumped in with that isn’t the proudest feeling. For someone to see that tweet and not know me, it’s like “okay, just another creepy fangirl” hahaha. Which is why I joked “Can’t I just be an awesome..girl?” because that’s what I am too. Yes, I’m a fan, but what is a fan? I’m a 20 year old girl, who happens to enjoy a band’s music. It was really just a joke that I apologize you seem to have taken the wrong way, and I see where you’re coming from and how my words could have given you that impression.
I know I’m kind of talking in circles, so I apologize, it’s just that I’m not sure how to phrase what I’m trying to get at without it making it sound like I think I’m better than anybody, or that I deserve anything more than anyone else. Because I honestly don’t think either of those things. I firmly believe anyone who does is an idiot hahaha
I can’t say one way or the other how I’d feel about them as individuals if there was no All Time Low in existence because I wouldn’t have known who they were. They would have been a couple of John Smiths, and I don’t know that my path would have crossed with any of theirs. All I know, is that for every time I’ve ever had a conversation with any of those four boys, or their crew members, I’ve taken something away from it. A laugh, a smile, an embarrassing story, a new idea, something to think about, etc. and I just wish I had more time to do that. To be able to say, “hey let’s go to the bar for a couple of drinks” and be able to chat. I’d love to pick their brains on things they’ve seen and experienced, and get a chance to really know them as people. I’ve been saying that for a long time hahaha. The likelihood of that ever happening is slim to none, and my life will go on.
I’m going to be really honest and say that I find it really interesting that all of this sparked from a tweet haha. I hope I explained myself adequately and that you have a better understanding of who I am. I don’t think I can really express exactly what I mean through tumblr, especially when I don’t know who it is I’m talking to haha. Please know that I am in no way angry or upset by you asking these questions, and I would like to have an opportunity to discuss it with you further where I can really try to explain what goes on in my head with these things haha. So please please please don’t be shy and message me on facebook, or text me, skype me, whatever. It would be so much easier for me to explain! haha
I wasn’t surprised given that when I gave him the blanket I was at the secret santa meet and greet, it’s just that sometimes it sucks that that’s what I’m thought of as. I was/am really appreciative that he remembers me at all, it’s just that I’m 20 years old and there’s so much more to me than being an All Time Low fan. That’s why I tagged it as still being really appreciative, it’s just that I wish he wouldn’t think of me that way. Just like I WISH they wouldn’t think of me that way. Because I think more of them as just a fan. I accept completely that that is who I am and probably always will be to them, I just wish I could just chill with them and that they’d know that they’re more to me than just some band that I love. I really respect them, and think they’re great people. I could care less about how ~famous they are/think they are/ etc. Every time I talk to them it’s usually about something other than music/ their band.
I think Alex knows that, and it’s totally cool that they know my face, and Jeff described me as a fan, because I am. I just wish they knew me as more than that. Make sense?
hahahaha it’s totally cool, you made up for it with knowing my love of penguins when it didn’t even ask! :)
<3 You’re more awesome. Take your own advice! :)
