  1. me & my bff/roommate still have on occasion what we like to call ‘Britney Days’ which involve playing Britney’s Dance Beat and watching the Live in Las Vegas vhs tape…these days make me very happy I don’t even care!! I’m fairly certain Britney Spears is the reason I have a best friend. It’s fine.

  2. I love that not only did he write a persuasive essay about how great Britney Spears is, but he got like 90% on it.

    Oh and that one where whoever was editing it wrote YES really big beside him mentioning his obsession.
