Luv’d being able 2 call up & request my Britney video 24/7 b4 she ‘blew up’ on MTV.

Did u run up yer mom’s phone bill requesting vidz?
Did u ever make a music vid ‘mixtape’ and VHS record the Box?
Yes, BB. I’ll let U borrow a Gelly Roll fer Science class. Just be sure to give it back, okay? I’ve had these fer a while. [c. 2000-2002]
Which color do U want?
or what about 1 of these colors?
or would U rather have a lighting 1?
Not sure if the teacher will be ‘cool' with U writing in lighting on yer Science test, tho.
Maybe U can ‘compromise' and use a metallic 1?
Just BE SURE THAT U GIVE IT BACK at the end of class. I have all 75 Gelly Rolls and it cost me $100 to do so.
Don’t want 2 be mad @ U so just be sure I get it back.

Did it confuse U abt sex?
Did u get yer ‘fashion’ inspo from Undressed?

****Watch out, Yall. I’m slapping u wif a major throwback @ the party 2nite****
Remember when they ‘reinvented’ the Polaroid? [c. 2000-2001]
Was digging around my closet 4 my Pink TOMS and came across 2 ‘ancient' relics from my youth…
MY FUCKING JOY-CAM
And… my fuckin’ iZone
Having such a hard time deciding which 1 would be more ‘ironic' 2 bring 2 da party 2nite, what do yall think?
Joy-Cam's have more 'clean' pics and are a little bit more 'vintage'…
But iZone pix R Stickers! [that double as keut fridge art]
Might just take both and pass them around the party. Just hope some ‘lamestreamer' doesn't steal 1 bcuz he/she never got 1.
Where do yall keep yer iZone or Joy-Cam?
Do u like making keut fridge art wif yer iZone?
Am I gonna look super ‘retro' 2nite @ the party wif both cams?

Need me 2 get that Scorpion belly button ring that yer BF won’t get u?
Need me 2 get that bead necklace 4 yer ‘side dish’?
