Just One

My roommates and I totally adore this video. We go through stages where we quote it constantly, in really bad Vietnamese accents.

I never realized how much we say the phrase, "just one," until after we saw this video. Now every time we say, "just one," we start cracking up.

As I'm typing this, that scenario doesn't sound all that funny but I assure you -- it is oh so funny.

So while Brillante, Kaitlin, and I were in PA for Molly's wedding we hit up a nail salon for some pre-wedding mani-pedis. This hysterical Asian girl was doing our pedicures so we decided to ask her if she knew what "critol gel" was.

And just so everyone knows, she had already been making fun of typical Asian stereotypes so we knew we wouldn't offend her with our question. we ask this girl about "critol gel" and she's like "Oh my gosh do you mean, crystal gel? Have you guys been watching Anjelah Johnson?"

And we're like, "Oh my gosh, she's actually talking about crystal gel?"

And the girl is like, "Yeah totally. It's a real thing. I even have a video from the lady who invented it!"

And then we proceed to watch this hour long video detailing how to apply "crystal gel" to your nails. It was quite a riveting production. And the woman who invented "crystal gel" had really nasty nails. Kind of ironic, dontcha think?

P.S. I should also mention that Brillante's little brother does a dead-on impression of this video.

"Honey...why you no liiiikkkeee?" Oh AJ...
