Is anyone even still reading my blog?? If you are, I'd love to hear from you!
Anyways, it seems like a lot has happened since my last post, but not anything really worth writing about. Except that Shane and I got into a little tiff when I was in Austin. I'll start from the beginning.
Setting: 2 hot girls getting ready for a night out on the town in Austin.
Plot: Shane and Peyton head downtown hoping to meet some hot guys, and have a good time. Before long, they run into Tommy: your classic All-American, Ambercrombie lookin' guy. He's tall, blond, blue-eyed, and has a great smile. He's also funny, and goofy and outgoing. Naturally, Shane and Peyton both notice his charm. However, Tommy is very careful not to appear any more interested in one girl, than in the other. Well played. This conjures up feelings of jealousy, insecurity, and overall territorialness amongst the girls. As the night goes on, both Shane and Peyton vie for Tommy's attention.
But before long, Peyton begins to see past Tommy's pearly white smile, and hot body. She also begins to see past Shane's flirtatious gestures, and "sarcastic" (slightly demeaning) comments.
Break down: Tommy is yet another self-centered, self-gratifying, narcissistic douche bag, with too much money, and too many notches on his bed post. And Shane, although she is a great girl, has a tendency to surround herself with attractive girls, with the intentions of getting noticed by attractive boys. However, she turns into quite the green monster when any of that attention is directed at anyone other than herself.
So, as all the horrible memories of past douche bags are flashing through Peyton's mind, she begins to inwardly hyperventilate, and start looking for ways out of the situation, and away from Tommy!
Shane of course, continues to put up a fight. She "just wants to hang out with Tommy, not date him!" "He's just a really fun guy!" "He doesn't even compare to Dr. New York!"
But the excuses just keep on coming, and Peyton is becoming increasingly wary.
Finally, when the bar closes, Peyton manages to escape, with Tommy and Shane in tow of course. But now, Shane hopes Tommy will drive them to their car. Tommy, of course, obliges, and they all pile into his Porsche SUV. (Trust Fund Baby) Shane and Tommy exchange numbers, as Peyton stares out the window, seething.
As the girls are driving home, Shane continues to defend herself against her actions, even though she claims she did nothing wrong. And although Peyton wasn't opposed to throwing back one hot guy, she still felt slightly betrayed. After all, Shane has a "great doctor guy" in New York, in addition to the 4 other guys she is already dating. And it seemed to Peyton that Shane just wanted every eligible attractive male all to herself! Shane was very selfish indeed!
This really bothered Peyton, considering she's about to embark on a trip across the country with this girl! But maybe it was mostly the sting of losing. Losing a guy to a friend. Does that mean she's prettier? Maybe it's because she's skinnier...or because she's blonde? All these things were flying across Peyton's brain and she couldn't stop them. She just couldn't help feeling insecure...inferior. How does Shane play The Game so well??
