|Description|| So the other day, I didn't think it was a good idea to post this... but Aly has been encouraging me to express myself more--and well, this is a rare verbalization of my uncensored thoughts.
And with my boss and his wife's dinner party tomorrow night, it's probably best to get such urges out of my system...

Rachel: Back at college, I am amazed that I made it through an entire two semesters with my roommate Zoey, who considered her space and my space, our space. Most of the time she would just, randomly blurt out things hoping to start up a conversation. Regardless of whether or not I actually wanted to talk. So I would be trying to study, and then all of the sudden she would just hit me out of nowhere with (Imitation of Zoey) "Oh My God! I love applesauce! Do you love applesauce Rachel? Oh My God! Have you seen that movie The Notebook? Oh my god it's such a good movie!" (sigh of exasperation) But my personal favorites were the times when she would ask me something along the lines of "How much do you think it costs to get a mystic tan?" Or where she could rent roller skates. Because clearly if you talk to me for five minutes, you would realize that I am a total expert on these topics. I think that's part of the reason why I focused so much attention on my relationship with Jordan last year. He had his own place, and I could go there and escape from my roommate. Don't get me wrong, I did try to be nice to her. I mean, any attempt at sarcasm just went right over her head. Deep down, I also had the fear that, it would just encourage her. And before you knew it, we'd be giving each other makeovers and the movie Beaches would be on in the background, in an endless loop. And then of course we would have little-spirited arguments over who would be the wind beneath the other's wings and finally the whole argument would end in "Whoever died first would be the designated person as the wind." (Rachel shakes her head with a terrified look on her face). I confessed all of this to Aly, and I knew we would totally get along when she said, "It must have been cold there in her shadow." You know it's funny. For two girls that hate that song so much, it's weird that we both know the words.

- Shortly before this video was made available, Zoeyiswatching posted a video talking about her love of applesauce.
- The line "Oh My God! I love applesauce! Do you love applesauce Rachel?" was based on a conversation Glenn Rubenstein overhead between his ex-girlfriend and his brother. 
- A few days after this video was posted, Rachel updated her YouTube profile to clarify her feelings on applesauce:
