I love French fries and Tom Cruise but not necessarily in that order, and I base all my relationships in life on the other person’s knowledge of FRIENDS episodes.

The first was deactivated promptly after the Backstreet Boys followed me because, really, where was I going to go from there?) Read more from me at: isthisthereallifeee.tumblr.com
