I’d like to begin today’s Blah-g with a poem…

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

I hate Valentines Day,

How about you?

If you are one of the few people who enjoy this Hallmark holiday, forgive me. But I have been  dumped, disappointed, stood-up, bored, food poisoned, acne infested, dateless, depressed through decades of them and the novelty has worn off. But hey, if you’re into it, enjoy if you possibly can.

For those of you who are staying home like me because you have nothing else to do would rather read, check out my new Tumblr.

If you are totally clueless unfamiliar with this photo and information-sharing site, don’t beat yourself up. Only 93.7 million blogs and 43 billion posts a few fashionistas, bands, news channels, business owners people are using it. And now I am too.
Pintrest is for my characters, Facebook is for my fans, Twitter is for my finds, and Tumblr is going to be for all things pretentious literary. This is where I’ll share the things I love about reading, online shopping, writing, books, and quotes, most of which I will have written or plagiarized.

Follow me now I invite you to take a look. Follow me, I said!


And please, have a very happy Valentine’s Day. Cupid still wears a diaper and it smells like heartache!

    Hey, Lisi, I just heard some people talking about a Live Action Series for the Clique. Is it actually going to happen or just a rumor?

  • CliqueGirl says:

    Yes, a tumblr! I wish you had a Twitter, though. We could share our love/hate feelings of Valentine’s Day.

  • sara says:

    hi lisi and everyone!
    i’ve never been a huge huge fan of valentine’s day, just because i think that its silly to only celebrate the people we love on one day. but i’ve also kind of thought it was silly to hate and absolutely ignore valentines day, because why not spend it showering your family and friends with love! it doesn’t have to be about a boy! (or girl) however this is the first year i’ve ever ever been with someone special on valentines day 🙂 (or at all…) and i will admit, it did feel special. but what made it more special is that i know if our date had been tomorrow night instead, it wouldn’t have gone any differently.
    anyway, i’m not lisi, but here’s my advice:
    julia–i think he likes you! in my experience, a huge thing for guys is sense of humor. the reason this is my first relationship is that i’ve always been “one of the guys” so trust me on this one! because of this, if they like you, they really value your opinion on humor and will look for compatibility in that area. it’s good you’re talking to him! and even texting. he doesn’t have to apologize for not responding right away, not everyone ha their phone on them 24/7, so that fact that he does implies he wants you to know he wants to talk to you. i say go for it! i’ve definitely been there-seeing all the signs that point to yes but convincing myself they don’t mean anything. spoiler alert: they do! since you already talk, try inviting him to a study date or hanging out one on one after school to gauge interest. worst case you can play it off like you were asking as a friend.
    arianna: firstly, you have a job! cool, i’m jealous! and i think that you did the right thing. i mean if there’s one thing that i’ve learned, its don’t settle. last year i hung out with a guy a couple of times who really liked me. he was great: funny, smart, cute, etc and i felt like i SHOULD like him… but no sparks. when i realized i’d been subconciously cutting our hangouts short and rushing out to avoid any attempts of kissing (which would have been my first) i realized it was so not worth it, or fair to the guy. i mean it sounds like you’ve come to this conclusion yourself, but at this point your 19 (im 18, so almost there), and if you’ve been saving your first kiss till now, it should be worth it when it happens! that was my mentality anyway. if you actually would have any interest in video game guy (and he could have been genuine, many guys think a girl who knows her video games is awesome), then maybe you should have given it a shot, but it sounds like you only talked to him for a minute and maybe he just wanted a date on valentines day. and hey, i won’t have any of this nonsense of you being ugly, but i know what you mean in that by not being stunningly pretty i feel like interested guys will really try to get to know me instead of just hitting on me cause of my looks. i consider myself modestly pretty but im self confident about the way i look. my best friend though is gorgeous and i used to get jealous of how often she got hit on but now i get that its much nicer to have a guy that really cares about who you are as a person. and this guy sounds like maybe he just cared that you were a 9female) person.
    and everyone: i know this is easier said than done, but lets stop being so down on ourselves! everyone here is beautiful and cool and sassy (i mean come on, we grew up on the clique books, how could we not be) and totally worthy of love. i know it sounds cheesy but i truly believe the reason i’m in a relationship now is that i’ve finally learned to embrace myself for who i am. i think they’re right when they say others can’t love you until you love yourself, because self confidence starts with how you view yourself, not how others view you. and once i became proud of who i am, and started really knowing what i wanted, thats when i was finally ready to let a guy into my life. you cant expect a guy to bring confidence to you.
    WOW that got really long and a bunch of it was probably cheesy and a bit too preachy and i’m too lazy to spell check so sorry and i know i’m not a regular on here so not to barge into your lives and now this is a run on sentence cool happy valentine’s day to all even though there’s only 2 minutes of it left!

    • Alisha says:

      Sara! You are simply ahhh-mazing (as Lisi might put it)! Maturity beyond your years, seriously. I am in full support of your wisdom expressed here and thank you so much for sharing such positivity in the comment thread!

    • Arianna says:

      Thank you so much Sara! I just felt bad for the poor guy. I’ve asked guys out before and got shot down before so I didn’t want him to feel that way. But I really just don’t want a relationship. I think, while the idea of love is great, love doesn’t exist anymore and so there’s point in wasting my time with a guy who only wants one thing. And when it comes to how I look, I don’t say I’m ugly to get pity, or compliments, or because I’m insecure. I say it because it really is true. You know those girls you see that have one or maybe two things going for them and they could ALMOST be pretty, but they’re not. I’m one of those girls. But it really doesn’t bother me. I’ve always been the ugly friend and I like it. I’m a pretty awesome person. I love me. Like, I fail at a lot of things, but I’m still pretty epic. And I can be awesome and still have a disgusting face. I’m totally cool with that. I love being single and I love being ugly because it means guys don’t mess with me. Why bother the unattractive girl when they can hit on her hot best friend? I love that because then not only do I get to make fun of friends, but I don’t have to worry about the guy hitting me. There’s a freedom to being ugly that I makes me feel sorry for pretty girls because they’ll never experience it.

      I’m one of those over-confident arrogant people who have no right to be. I blame it on being a Texan. 😛

      Thanks for you comment! It was so nice!

      • Haylee says:

        I know what you mean. I mean I may feel attracted to people but that doesn’t mean I want to date them. And a relationship feels contrived, tiring and boring. I mean why would I should I waste my time being in a relationship when like no one feel that strong. And I wouldn’t rule out that love exists but it’s hard to find and I have really strong beliefs about what I believe is love so people would run away from me. And even if I felt strongly about someone, and if it was mutual i don’t think my reaction would come off positively. And anyways, I’m still kind of young to be thinking about this. I just hope that this generation and the future ones will stop being rude, ignorant and lustful people lacking in any ability to love. Quoting one of my favorite characters: “Here’s to hope and here’s to a love that will not alter.” And I’ve seen one of the pics you posted back when you had a Figment and you’re actually not bad-looking. 🙂

    • Julia says:

      Thanks! We are friends and he is cool, but I’m afraid I just don’t know him too well. 🙁
      Thanks though!

    • Cata says:

      EHMAGAWD! 🙂 That was incredible! Thank you so much. I can ssoooooo get why Lisi was at a loss for words! You are so smart and kind great job giving out advice! Can you give me some advice next? I posted it on the sage advice page under Catherine. Fantastic job!

  • Arianna says:

    Lisi! I don’t mean to be annoying, but I actually need some advice! So, I work at GameStop and I’m the only girl that works at my store. Anyway, tonight (Valentine’s Day) some guy came in and we talked about the Xbox 720 for like two seconds, then he left. Ten minutes later he called the store and asked me out to dinner and gave me his number. I declined dinner, but now I feel bad because I really don’t want to text him or talk to him. Yeah, I’m 19, never had a boyfriend or even been kissed, but I super okay with that. I don’t want to hit up the first guy that hits on me just because I’m forever alone. I actually embrace my forever alone-ness now and I love it. I love being single. If this were last year, I’d totally would have said yes and probably would have done way more with him than I should have, but now I really don’t want to date anyone.

    I feel bad because he did reach out to me, even though I don’t know him, but I’m really not interested. I’m actually annoyed because what’s the point of being disgustingly unattractive if you can’t keep guys from hitting on you and asking you out? Like, being ugly is a blessing to me because it keeps guys from doing this exact thing. Now some dude with incredibly low standards has come in and messed everything up. I feel bad for guy. Am I a bad person for throwing his number away?

    • Julia says:

      I would say no. How do you know he wasn’t going to wear your skin to a Birthday party or something? I mean, he could be a total creeper or something. 🙂
      P.S. I don’t think you are not ugly. I’ve seen your blog and you look pretty, I think!

      • Arianna says:

        Maybe. He did argue with me about the PS4 and Xbox 720’s release date. Ugh! Thanks, love! And I don’t think I”m very pretty, but it’s nice to know you do. Thank you so much!

  • Haylee says:

    i still remember your blog post about V-Day back in 2011. It was called “Crappy Valentine’s Day, right? And I’m not a big fan of the holiday either, at least I got to eat some chocolates

  • Julia says:

    Hey, Lisi! Short blah-g, but it was good!
    Actually, the boy I like didn’t say anything to me today except for our normal “flirting” (hehe). It didn’t make me too sad, because I still like him. I need advice though! I know you don’t really answer our problems but I really need this one!
    OK. Is he into me or not? He will say something funny or will be laughing and he almost always looks for my reaction if I’m laughing too. If I’m not, he will stop. If I am, he will smile at me.
    When I start laughing really hard at something probably stupid (but he didn’t hear), he will start kinda laughing/smiling.
    Whenever we talk, he usually slightly blushes but then sits up tall and acts all proud and stuff. Ha!
    He doesn’t usually respond to my texts right away, but when he does he always says “Sorry, I was studying,” or something.
    I need help! 🙁
    Loved this blah-g, even though I am a fan of VD.
    P.S. You look like an angel in the picture, Lisi!!!

  • Maggie says:

    I’m beyond grounded for my D in math but I danced my brother away from the computer and snuck on to read you Blah-G. I love your Tumblr already and agree with your V-day feelings. Well, more because the only candy and valentines I get are from my parents and close friends. I celebrate Forever Alone’s day and enjoy the candy 😛 ^u^
    Oh no! I hear footsteps…..

  • Ari says:

    Thank You for having a Tumblr and not enjoying Valentine’s day. I am not a fan of this day and want it to be over ASAP! Ugh.

  • Laila N says:

    ^_^ I’m not a Valentines’ Day fan either, but that’s just because it’s not something we celebrate. I’m going to check out your tumblr, but I’m also going to hold you responsible for all my procrastination that will eventually lead to my failing school. Of course it IS my own problem, but whatever. I’m going with the human nature of blaming others 😛

    Have a lovely day (:

  • Arianna says:

    Yay for Tumblr! I love Tumblr and it’s one of things that have helped me not kill myself. You obviously won’t be using it for reasons I do, but whatevs, right? Anyways, I spent every single Valentine’s Day for the past 19 years alone so trust me, this “holiday” does nothing for me. The real holiday is the 15th where all the candy, stuffed animals, and chocolate is half priced. Now that is a holiday I can get behind on. Because what else is a forever alone Frau (German class is finally paying off!) supposed to do? Cry over how unattractive and alone I am? NO! I’m too awesome of a person to do that. Instead me and my friends will be pigging out and watching movies. At least, till I have to go to work.

    Because all the cool kids spend Valentine’s Day at GameStop. 😉 Have a good week and weekend, Lisi!


  • Haylee says:

    Lisi, you have a Tumblr? I am so going to follow you! I already follow Cassandra Clare. And wow, I’m first! And Happy Valentine’s Day to one of my favorite authors! 😀
