Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Yeah...I go through a lot of clothes...that's all I'll say...
There's a stain on every shirt in every photograph
That the year book staff in high school chose to show
Is it gravy from my po-tat-o?
Really I don't know

On my khaki pants the knees are diff'rent shades of green
From all the lawns my knees have chosen to attack
There's a blue streak running up my back
Oh 'cause drying paint...isn't faint

There's a stain of ketchup falling from my fries
And my pants show signs of cherry pies
I sat on a lunch sack

There's a stain upon the sleeve of my dear sister's shirt
To this day she thinks the cleaners are to blame
Oh, but really, all the burn marks came
From my birthday flame

(instrumental)

There's a stain of ketchup falling from my fries
And mascara spilling from my eyes
I cry when Orcs attack

Beside the hamper is a pile of clothes I'll never wear
Even though I only wore them the one time
Oh and some are stained with unknown slime
Or Jell-O that's lime

There's a stain from when I fell out of the car at Prom
And the gravel and the tar just won't come out
Even with those handy wipes by "Shout,"
All my spots remain...Every stain!

There's a stain of ketchup falling from my fries
And my pants show signs of cherry pies
I sat on a lunch sack.

There's a stain of ketchup falling from my fries
And my pants show signs of cherry pies
There's a stain!

KRISTOF...thanks so much! You're totally making me blush! Seriously!! Now my cheeks can match the cranberry juice that I poured down my shirt this morning on the way to work!!

For those of you reading this on the message board, I'd like to direct your attention to Miss Kicksass' very first Amiright parody on the new entries for 6/2/04...(and it's Harry Potter themed to boot!) It is AWESOME!!! =) Thanks again, both of you!!!

When orcs attack me, I get a different kind of stain entirely.

OK, I totally dig this parody and I swear I commented on it before. Maybe it got deleted because I can't help but being inappropriate when I think of Arwen. Who knows. Anyhoo. Anecdote:

I was boarding a plane to SLC the other day and these two 20-something women behind me were trying to kill their boredom by spinning. Yes, spinning. Twirling. One of them decided to do a really fast spin and "stick the landing." Which she did. But she forgot that there's this thing called inertia, which says that if you've got a heavy bag over your shoulder, it will keep spinning even after you stop. Which it did. It yanked her off her feet and into the wall. Loudly. And then she went sprawling onto the floor. Loudly. Everyone - EVERYONE - gasped and crowded around to see what had happened. And then laughed at her. As for me - I kid you not here - I thought that this MUST be a certain someone I know. I very nearly asked her "Are you Arwen?"
Arwen - March 31, 2005 - Report this comment
Mister Spaff...so glad to see you stop by...=)

Sadly, said floor flopper was not me...but let me assure you that, years ago, in my inexperience and relative youth...it might have been. Long story short...I've lived and I've learned. I NEVER twirl while holding a large bag. Are you kidding? I do twirl while wearing high heels though...not something I'd suggest.

And when I fall flat on my face...or my ass...or both...in the middle of a crowded airport terminal...I don't need no hoity toity scientific mumbo jumbo like inertia to help me out.

I am as cute as hell so people love me regardless...but the bottom line is this: I am a clumsy bastard...and I fall down for no reason whatsoever...

And I loved your story...=)

Arwen (seriously, it's me!) - February 02, 2006 - Report this comment
Um...maybe I haven't been around much lately...and maybe I'm lame and didn't jump on getting my thank yous thrown down as quickly as I should have...but COME. ON.

Whoever is submitting comments in (an altered version of) my name...PLEASE stop. I'm actually confused as to what purpose it serves.

If you're someone that I neglected to thank...do you feel more appreciated now that you've thanked yourself on my behalf? If so, next time maybe you could just call yourself up, or send yourself some flowers...both of which would be even more gratifying than some empty words on the comments page, don't you think?

Or....If you're someone who thinks I should have said thanks by now, are you simply trying to protect my already stellar reputation and make me look good? If that's the case...you would probably do better in improving my image if you made sure to portray me as someone who knows how to spell my own name. Also...I gotta tell you...I am FABulous. I know this. And the people that matter know it, too. Mr. Pacholek will always love me NO. MATTER. WHAT. And anyone who's going to think less of me because I unintentionally missed out on some thank yous...is unimportant. Seriously.

I honestly do love to get feedback, especially positive feedback...(I'm not going to lie)...and I ALWAYS appreciate birthday wishes...=) But I don't appreciate anyone posting under my name. It's not cool. It's annoying. And more than a little weird.

Anyway...I'm sorry that I've let my manners slip...and I'm sorry that I haven't been around much...(New FABulousness by Arwen is in the works, I swear)...don't dismay, though...I haven't forgotten you. =)

Except for Arewn. I'm trying to forget her. Or him. Or...um...whatever.

I feel bad that some dumb lurker posted a comment with your name written incorrectly; I am pretty sure that you'd never misspell your own name. Maybe he/she/it/banjo/fannypack was pointing out that there were a few other commentators ahead of me that were "ignored" (Adagio, Emiloca, and Scathe) and he/she/it/banjo/fannypack was trying to get attention. I wonder if that person is related to the so-called "parody police" or something.

Enough of that. Let's change the subject... I happened to read on the messageboard in your birthday thread that you're thirty now?? Well, how does it feel to be three decades old? ;-D Here's to three more >holds glass up high< (Now I mean that in a good way; please don't get the wrong idea.)
