Crazy Face Royer

Tonight Alison Royer called me and we talked about things like the fact that she didn't realize Jacob Black was Indian (or, "Native American") even though the book (all FOUR of them) said he lived on a reservation and was part of a tribe. She's not very smart sometimes.

But then we went through a photo album on Facebook together and she kept complaining about it, and saying funny things to the point where I started cracking up. She said... "Patty! It's not funny! I have yellow teeth! I have a Ted Koppel comb over! and I'm at maximum capacity!" I couldn't help but laugh. Her teeth are not yellow, she does not have a comb over and she is not fat, not remotely. She's insane! She would say, "Look at this picture... I definitely have a camel toe!" or "Why are you laughing? Stop laughing at my comb over! Hold on, I have to put my Crest white strips on now as we speak." and then she did. (and just posted a status on Facebook saying "Alison wonders how long you have to wait to smoke after using Crest white strips."

Alison is great because she has her own language and way of doing things that is completely acceptable, yet totally strange. Like texting me "talkies" when she wants me to call her... or saying the word "literally" after everything (ex. Trevor, I'm literally confused as to why you were texting everyone here but me.) Or walking into a building and having the first thing she says be "Listen, I don't understand why you don't just tell me I look fat." or something crazy like that.

What kind of picture am I painting of Alison? I hope it's not a bad one because I was thinking lately of the type of people that everyone needs to have in their life, and among the Jeremy's, the Mike's, the Evan's... Alison Royer is definitely up there. She's confident and hilarious and has the most amazing stories to tell. She's lived a life and a half.

Patty, my greatest wish is that you were there in the theater when Jacob Black came on to the screen. It was such a profound moment of Royer appreciation, and I had no one to share it with.
