I’m as big as….



I’M AS BIG AS… The yeti? A giant panda sitting down? An average supermodel? The longest recoreded moustache? A blue whale’s heart?

This 6.5 feet high wall mounted height chart has been beautifully researched, designed and produced. Reaches the parts other height charts can’t reach!

($9.99 at Perpetual Kid)

I think this looks like one of the coolest things ever. I’m definitely getting this to go in my dorm room at college.

Facebook lies to us all.

   So, as I have said in previous posts, I’m Maria in The Sound of Music at my school.  Well. The cast was chillin and the idea came up that we should make Facebook profiles of our characters and all join a group of us.  I was on my way to do just that, but you have to enter your birthday in order to sign up. Hm, well, if I’m twentyish in the 1920’s…..

Facebook didn’t like that.         

facebooklies2“…Anyone can join!” my hindquarters.  What a lie.

So if I really was 105 years old? They wouldn’t let me sign up as myself?  I find that insulting.


 Update:   Just kidding.  The Sound of Music is in the 1940s.  But Facebook still didn’t let me make an account.

My dream wardrobe would include these:

ModCloth has my favorite designs in the whole world.  They’re more expensive than I’d care to spend, but every splurge is sooo worth it!  Here are some of my favorites!

And I owe you these:

Okay, I started off my blog by putting something to smile about at the end of each post.  And a picture, too, actually.  But I’ve gotten behind. Again.  I know, I just caught up, but c’est levie.

Thing to smile about number…

35: Hair cuts! …That actually turn out right.
36: Brandy!
37: Sunshine in Michigan! Finally.
38: Postsecret.
39: Lists.  As has been very obvious today.
40: Obscure movie/tv references. For some reason, yesterday I made a ton of those. I Love Lucy, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Grease, Men In Black, Star Wars, and a couple others, I think. No one recognized any of them.  I’m proud of myself.
41: Feeling prepared for Monday’s AP History test.
42: Danike.
43:  E. E. Cummings!!  Cummings is totally worth postponing my grammar-nazishness for.  He makes a lack of punctuation and grammar an art.

These might be for you.

My personal notes to a potential suitor:

#1: Music is a huge part of my life. I will introduce you to my favorite artists. And I will be looking for some indication of what you think. If you love it, let me know. If you don’t, tell me why.

#2: Please dance with me. =] Goofily(?) and all other kinds of dancing. Don’t worry, I suck at it, too.

#3: A lack of respect towards me is a deal-breaker. No excuses.

#4: It’d be totally awesome if you would be all about holidays with me. Including National Get Over It Day. (March 9th)

#5: Please let me vent. And, if you disagree with me, please let me finish ranting before you say that you can see the other side. If you make an argument for the opposite side while I’m ranting, it’ll probably just start a fight.

#6: Please, please don’t close off. Especially during an argument. Let’s always talk, okay?

#7: Do not text me 24/7. Everyday? Sure, I’m down with that. But let me get to sleep at a reasonable hour. Let me go to school. And don’t freak if it takes me a little while to respond. I have a life.

#8: Be okay with no PDA. Holding hands is fine, but let’s not ever be attatched at the hip.

#9: Honesty is an absolute must. It’s a core value for me, so I hope it is for you, too. Don’t be the type to just tell me what you think I want to hear.

#10: Yes, I probably would prefer to buy the book as opposed to borrowing it from the library.

#11: Please don’t be one of those people who freak out about their picture being taken. I think you’re cute. And bad pictures happen to even the best of us. A picture is only embarrassing if you choose to be embarrassed by it. And you are not any picture of you. If necessary, and in those situations where you really don’t want your picture taken (I have those, too), please be mature about it and respond by saying something like, “honey, please not today. We’ll get pictures together some other time, okay?” as opposed to freaking out. Or you could suggest a compromise: Let me take a couple pictures in return for letting you pick the next movie we watch or having me pay for dinner sometime.

#12: On that note, if a compromise is to be made, let’s specify at the moment it is being suggested what the conditions are for each party. Don’t hold it over my head that I owe you something.

#13: One word: HYGIENE!

#14: Please don’t ever feed me. It’s so awkward. For me and everyone else.

#15: Drive me places, but I’d like to drive sometimes, too.

#16: I can pretty much guaruntee that I’ll try to imitate the way you talk. I do that. Please find amusement in it and don’t get offended. I don’t do it to mock you; I love linguistics.

#17: Please, no buzz-cuts.  Have hair.

#18: Please be a fellow musician. But if you are, don’t be critical or try to give me lessons unless I ask you for it.

#19: Be a real man – Love God.

#20: I would absolutely love it if you made “your face” jokes with me. =]  And if you remember that I like Chuck Norris jokes.

#21: If you interacct well with kids, I’ll melt.  =]

I have to put this out there.
I have no choice.
It’s perfect.
I can’t even explain how happy I am when I hear it.
I’m so happy it almost hurts, if that makes any sense.


5 Years Time – Noah and the Whale

Well, then I look at you and say,
“It’s the happiest that I’ve ever been”
And I’ll say, “I no longer feel I have to be James Dean”
And she’d say, “Yeah well I feel pretty happy too
And I’m always pretty happy when I’m just kicking back with you”

Till now, I’ve avoided blogging about politics, but here I go.

Congress just spent 800 billion dollars. How much is that? If you spent 1 million dollars every day since Jesus’s death, you wouldn’t have reached that. 1 million dollars a day for 2,000 years, and you still wouldn’t have spent as much as Congress just did. And what do you get in return? Virtually $13 a week, and economists say the stimulus plan will hurt the economy in the long run than if we just let things play out.

You know, when Obama talks about past economies, he never mentions that the recession in the 1980’s was worse than the one we’re in now. And he probably avoids bringing it up because we got out of that recession with tax cuts.

You know, as much as I’d still disagree with it, the bill would be more effective if it didn’t have so much pork in it. For example, in that bill is 30 something million or billion dollars to save some species of swamp mouse. Lots more, but my personal favorite is the 38 billion dollars to promote “urban electric vehicles.” AKA, golf carts.

I know, I know. I’m complaining but I haven’t offered any better solution. But how about this: Why don’t we just suspend taxes for a couple months? Not sales tax, but the other stuff. That would instantly put thousands of dollars of people’s own money (that they know how to best spend, themselves) back into their own pockets. It would require no expansion of government and it would be effective immediately. Even just suspending income tax! So Congress and all them would still get paid.
