Day of Memorializing

So I was rather adventurous (for me) this past weekend, and joined a large group of friends on a beach trip. Overall, it was quite fun, so I have decided to memorialize (ahhhh!) it in MSpaint.

Ok, so contrary to what I've put, I did have a good time. Yes, it was foggy, and there were a LOT of bugs, but also we had a cookout with great food, and a bonfire. I also escaped with only ONE bite on my knee, so I guess the bug situation wasn't THAT bad.

Clearly, the best part was the presence of one super awesome dog, Lolly. She's only a year old, and probably one of the best doggies around. (You can find out more info about Lolly at http://www.bernerlearner.com/)

Here is a specific example as to why she is so incredible: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Chd8FEoXLXo&feature=player_embedded

Anyway, here is my representation of her.

She is awesome.

Something Happy

I figured I'd end the week on a happy note... no dreary subjects.

Only

...oh wait.

Not that last one.

HAPPY LONG WEEKEND.

One of those days

Just a murfle kind of day.

I've been playing with drawing music notes. I haven't drawn any in a long time.

I'm pretty proud of my quarter rest.

Cookie for NO ONE

Since none of my three (or less) readers decided to name my creation OR identify that the title came from the Neverending Story, I have created an awesome cookie no one will EVER get.

That's right, check out his cookie deliciousness.

By the way, in the book Bastian apparently names the empress "Moon Child." I'd succumb to the nothing if that were the name given me.

Bastian, give me a name!

I was doodling incoherently (can one doodle incoherently? I certainly can talk that way...) and came up with this. He's a little upset.

I assure you, I view all my ridiculous creations equally, be it a flying toaster or a... snake thing... with wings... and a horn... and beaver teeth. A snorned bevake? Hm.


Won't you please give this delightful creature a name?

(also, a cookie if you know where the title comes from)

Wear and Tear

So I got new sneakers, oh, about 4 months ago, and they already have a hole in them. You might think this means I am a super active person who runs her sneakers down to nothing in a matter of weeks, but no. Though I do wear them frequently, apparently I have a habit of lifting my big toe when I do anything... including walking, running, even sitting. Thus, the toe hole was born.

Now, there are benefits to this, as my feet will receive increased ventilation from these man made "air holes." You can see by the depleted rays of awesomeness, however, that the ever growing toe hole had to be stopped. Am I one to go out and buy a whole new pair of sneakers? No. I did something better.


In the end, duct tape solves everything. Not only is the hole covered and protected, but I am left with super awesome shoes with a duct taped toe! You can see by the radiating awesome that the duct tape has increased the value of my shoes tenfold. It is speculated that it has even given me super powers.

I have predicted the outcome of my new shoe style:

Don't worry about the turtle. He's the one who stole your food (WHICH YOU LABELLED) out of the communal fridge and ate it, leaving you with nothing for lunch. You'd boot him too... especially if you had super awesome duct tape sneakers which gave you superpowers.

Occasionally, I will return to reality and admit:


On the plus side, you'll be able to tell everywhere I've been simply by looking at the collection of things stuck to the bottom part of the duct tape on my shoe. But hey, no more hole?

Not a morning person

So I had the bright idea that today I would start trying to go to the gym in the morning. Prompted by insanity, I set my alarm and got out of bed around 5 AM to begin my adventure. Some people thrive on this schedule, and at first, I was feeling pretty good.


I think at this point I was fueled mostly on pride at actually doing what I had planned to do. I don't think the actual workout or subsequent awkward communal shower nudity really were involved. Sure enough, soon after I got to work my miraculous energy began to dissipate.

What have I done? I am not, nor will I ever be, a morning person. No matter how many times I remind myself that this means I do NOT have to go after work, and I can feel less guilty about eating that super-cheesy-amazing mac and cheese I KNOW I am going to have for dinner:


Yes, I am going out to dinner with the sister and I already know what I want.



it does not make me any less grossly tired, or more motivated to do the ridiculous amount of work I have to do. I actually predict soon, I will be like this


Hopefully if I can actually pull off the X's over my eyes, my bosses won't be TOO mad, because, I mean, how can you be mad at someone who has X's for eyes and/or is dead?

"Pray... for... mojo..."

Dreamland

I woke up around 1 AM yesterday from a very strange dream. I found it so strange and amusing, I felt, at the time, I needed to email it to myself in order to remember it. I looked at the email this morning, and it said this:

after a disaster, trying to conserve supplies. See a guy dumping oil on his leg
Me: Hey, what are you doing? We have to be careful.
Guy: There's plenty of it.
Me: For NOW. Plus, how do we know you're not a robot?
Guy: Why do you need it anyway?
Me: Because I'M a robot.
Guy: So YOU'RE the robot.
Me: That doesn't matter because I'm an awesome robot.

Yeah, it was less amusing and relevant when I looked this morning, but still kind of funny.

Yeah.

Now for something completely different

Uh, I don't know what this is... but...

Ok, yes, I know it was clearly an attempt at a flower. But not a very good one. And I think I gave it pox. Things don't go well when I diverge from my animal theme.

Here's a scared cat to return the balance.


What's he scared of? Maybe I'll show you next time.

Catwings

I guess this is kind of old, but it is new to me.

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/discoblog/2009/05/28/is-pollution-in-china-causing-cats-to-grow-wings/

Weeeeeeeird.

This all started...

With a crazy bear.

Do bears actually like honey? Probably. They also like much of the garbage they can find at campsites. But watch out...


That bee kind of looks like a police man. Or rather, gives me policing vibes. Maybe it's the sunglasses. Either way, I'd keep my paws off his honey.

Also...

Meanwhile, on the lawyerz' tropical beach resort...

You might want to call for lawyerz backup. That parrot is trouble.

The Lawyerz, redux

Seems I may have missed part of the crew. Well... uh.. she was on a mission, see?

Have to keep the fans happy.

We're the Berkley crew and we're better than you...

The idea of going to law school or becoming a lawyer fills me with unknown dread. I mean, I don't even know what lawyers DO, just that I don't want to be one.

Truth is, I am just not cool enough. I imagine lawyer posses to be something like this

You might wonder why Sara the rabbit has a hammer. Well, it's a gavel, and she stole it from a judge. Yeah, she's bad ass.

My posse would look something like this.


Yes, I got a cat companion for Spart. Her name is Katsa. Also, I don't know why I have an umbrella.

So, moral of the story? Lawyers do cool things like steal gavels and have lollipops. I'm a crazy cat lady with an umbrella.

Also, I haven't heard this song in forever, but it has been stuck in my head for DAYS.


Just a little aside there.

Kourtroom Kangaroo



Oh wait, sorry

You're Looking Rather... Animal.

Ever wondered what animal I would picture you as? Maybe you'll get to find out, if you ask. Here's a recent gathering at a friend's house.

The friend is the ginger porqupine. I bet you wish she was your friend.
