G.I. Joe Vs. Lola

My name is Lola Lakely and although the name does have a certain ring to it, I am not a porn star. Sadly I’m not even one of those skinamax actresses a la Red Shoe Diaries. Sigh. A girl can dream.

However, something happened a few weeks ago that made me question my femininity. During the Superbowl, I came to the sad realization that I quite possibly could be a 14 year old boy. In rapid succession, the following events occurred:

1. Arizona scored in the second quarter and I was the only girl to jump off the couch and add my low alto voice to the barrage of male yells.

2.Then of course, the G.I. Joe preview exploded on the screen and I immediately screamed out “Wait a minute! Go back! Rewind- now pause- was that Snake Eyes?”

3.This was directly followed by one of the guys mentioning Fallout 3- to which I realized I was farther in the game then anyone there.

And finally for the piece de resistance…

4.The game came back on and the camera zeroed in on the name of one of the Arizona players. I nudged my friend Steve and actually said,” Dude, that guy’s name is Breaston.” And then I snickered.

I snickered? If I wasn’t already a fourteen year old boy, that right there would have solidified it. The only consolation over all of the above is the fact that I have big boobs. They remind me that I am, in fact, a girl.

I guess I’ll take what I can get.

Ahaha... throw in some poop jokes or fart jokes and I could have written that!

There are times I question my femininity and age. I love my Nintendo Wii. I have mastered M&M Kart racing, have the Outdoor Adventure mat and a pile of games. I hold back cheering when I beat my grandchildren at video games. It might be considered bad behavior for a grandmother. I too am reminded I am a female when trying to run on the Wii mat. I'm suprised I don't have black eyes and bruised knees. Have fun with your new website.

Nice start to your new blog! Just a reminder... #3 is incorrect. I've already beaten Fallout 3, my young padawan. ;-) That's ok, though. I love ya anyway!

I love your style and your openess!! I think it is good you enjoy the things you do. And you are way too cute to be a 14 year old boy. Being yourself is a good thing.

I've felt similar...I used to spar with the Welterweight boxing champion of the world, and last week I found myself tearing up at the end of Stand By Me, and even hearing a Bette Middler song on the radio(wow did I really confess that)...I don't know, maybe I'm going soft.

I think I need to focus more on boobs and car crashes or something!!
