I know this is a true thing, as I did it myself back in the day. In one particularly memorable incident in 1978, I think I was supposed to be Olivia Newton John . Don't mock me. She was quite the style icon back in the day.
As I quickly rummaged through teh interwebz looking for a couple of pics to accompany this blog post, I immediately was made to understand that there is much online bickering about which of these two young ladies is "more awesomer".
The facts? Well, let's see...Avril Lavigne's name means "April vineyard" in French.
So, she's got that going for her.
Also, she looks a lot like my daughter Alexa!
I guess that makes her awfully awesome....
But then we have Taylor Swift, who grew up on a Christmas tree farm - and that gives you special powers beyond that of other humans. Christmas trees provide a lot of happiness, so I'm pretty sure that being associated with them earns one mucho good karma.
On the other hand, she once dated one of the Jonas Brothers and wrote a song about him. Sadly, that may cancel out all xmas tree-related cred accrued.
Then again, Taylor is about 6ft tall and could crush Avril like a bug.
So there's that.....
I don't know...it's all mildly confusing, which is no doubt why thousands of teen girls are ready to spill blood over this question.
Luckily, my own little Taylor and Avril get along quite well..
This morning's verdict on the party?
"Meh" pretty much sums it up what the girls had to say about it.
But at least they had a fun time getting dressed. Me trying to glue false eyelashes onto Mallory was priceless, I assure you.
