We interrupt out regularly scheduled programming to bring you PMF: "Double the Trouble, Double the Fun" edition. We decided Saturday was the perfect day for sneaking around our fave local abandoned army base. Last time we hit up the medical building, so this time we mobbed over to the elementary school and barracks. The school was (interestingly enough...) wide open, so we took the liberty of letting ourselves in. We were poking around, peering inside classrooms, shrieking at every little noise, searching for a way to get inside; but to no avail. (We’re ladies so we ain’ts about to be breaking in any windows. We need a boy to do that stuff.) So we’re doin our thing, snapping pics, when suddenly we stumble upon something VERY interesting. While the rest of the school is abandoned, in ruins, and totally creepy, this particular wing is not. It would appear that there is a secret corporation being run out of here that goes by mysteriously ambiguous name “NATGEO”. When we peered inside we didn’t see clocks hanging off the wall, desks turned upside down, and chairs strewn across the floor; instead we saw your run-of-the-mill office space. As in like, it’s currently in operations! We dreamed up many a conspiracy theory as to WHY this corporation is currently operating out of an abandoned elementary school: Nuclear weapons? New world order? Area 51 alien-type-a shit? We were deep within our imaginary world when suddenly: po po. Don’t worry dudes- it’s just Irvine cops. And we’re white sooooo…
“Ladies. Watchu doin?” he pondered.
Britt held up the camera, “Sorry officer. We are taking our photography final like, waaaaay too seriously! (giggles) Just snappin some photos for our art class.” I swear there is no amount of trouble that a big-ass camera and a miniskirt can’t get you out of.
“Alright well wrap it up…this is private property ya know.”
In unison: “Thank you officer!”
Dude, I swear we watched WAY too much Harriet the Spy growing up. PS- If we do not return to regularly scheduled posting on Wednesday then assume we’ve been taken into government custody.
Until next time,
Britt + Chels
