Don't Stop Believing

I give you...the OTHER Roeckers...

When Laura approached us to write a guest blog in honor of Lisa’s birthday, we weren’t quite sure where to start. So the Regulator (aka Mom), did what she usually does to get inspiration: a Google search. After typing in the words, “Lisa + Cameltoe + Tivo + Justin Bobby + Glee + overalls” she was brought to Fox’s Intranet and hacked her way in. Then she stumbled upon this gem: an unedited version of the original Glee Trailer. As you will see, some of the scenes were eventually cut.

Happy Birthday to our Dancing Queen. Aren’t we all lucky Lisa chose to write instead of dance? And just so you know, we will NEVER stop believing in both of you!


*A special thanks goes out to our dad for his unwillingness to edit as he filmed us in our early years. Without him, we never would have access to countless ballet recitals, random footage entitled "Girls Goofing Around", 20+ years worth of Christmas mornings and family vacations full of our trademark "squirrel" look. There's nothing like documenting those awkward tweenage/teenage years. Especially when there's a little something called "The Rippr" that can transform those moments into humiliating blog birthday posts!

Oh my god, I'm crying I'm laughing so hard.

And Laura, you've set the bar high for birthdays on this blog. Just wait until February rolls around. Payback is a bitch my friend.

Nice work guys. Totally humiliating and highly entertaining. What more could a girl ask for?

P.S.
I just realized that mom is wearing the Regulator t-shirt in the picture. Priceless. We are officially the lamest family on the planet. Who does this stuff?

And for the record, I will disown the person who posts this to YouTube or Facebook. Seriously.

I am going to handle my comments in only a way you can really appreciate.

A Lisa Birthday List

1. Green strapless dress with beer bottle. No more words. Seared into my brain. No adjectives can explain the bliss I feel from seeing that video.

2. Blue spandex shorts recital. Jammin'.

3. Triangle hair. I have tears in my eyes.

4. I heart the Roeckers.

5. Happy Birthday, girl. I loved getting to talk to you in person tonight and I can't wait to see what you concoct for Laura's bday.

Happiest of birthdays, Ms. Dancing Queen.

Katie said...

Bedsides the triangle hair and the drama queen breakdown on the sofa (cracking up) my fave part is the photo of your precious family (Mom in the regulator t-shirt) in hysterics!!!

I'm super impressed, super entertained, and super glad my family is technology-challenged!

Bravo!

jessjordan said...

Lisa, you must be so very disappointed that your scenes got cut from Glee!! Rude, I tell you. Rude. Hollywood is a cutthroat bitch, isn't it? :D
