It's Not Always So Cold in December

____This is the first time I got to use my new remote for mister camera! It was sort of an exciting experience. Ah, but how I wish I could be a good blogger and wake up when my alarm goes off in the morning so the light in pictures wouldn't be so treacherously white and my hair wouldn't look like the sun bleached it out. I shall learn from this mistake, huhuhu. Anyway, today's travel led me to the very exotic and wonderful location of.. the land of the sewer monitoring place thing, yeah! I could hear the water rushing below me and I smelled the occasional pretty smell of, errr, leaves and unicorns. Unicorns have a very distinct scent, you know.
____I really don't have anything important to say today. Nothing stupid or useless, either. All I did was wake up late and go to art class to draw some with the only other friend of mine who decided to show up at said art class. We made up stories with the nude models in the art books, such as describing how we could use this one model's boobs as a ramp for a snowmobile to jump off, etc. Typical mature art student stuff, yessir.

No Grinch Lives Here

____It's snowing on Christmas Day! This is so exciting since its the first white Christmas I've had. The snow isn't really sticking to the ground much and resembles a layer of slush as of now, and so unfortunately no snowfeesh shall be crafted this year. But it's getting thicker as time passes, so there is still plenty of time for snow to pile up. At least the snowflakes are giant enough that they basically consume any person who dares walk outside. Seeing people being ravaged by voracious white fluffs of cold makes up for the lack of sticking. Smite, my monster snowflakes, smite all you can-- ahahahaaaa! At least he few flakes that decided to stick or melt did so in very photo-opportunistic places, as you can see by my collection of wintry photos. It may just look like rain fell, but it was snow before, I promise!

____Anyway, I hope that you citizens have all had slash are having a very awesomeriffic Christmas! I do wish that you all received everything you wanted and that everything is good that you are as happy as a cow in an endless pasture of green.

____I got a many fun thing for Christmas, mostly clothes since I was unsure of what else to ask for! I was thankful for everything I got, it was much more than I expected or could even dream of. As you can see, I got this lovely pair of Jeffrey Campbell booties. I also received this beautiful navy blue wool military style trench coat that makes me feel like I'm riding on a horse in the American Revolution, awe yeah. Was not expecting that one. Do not even know how the parents knew about that. My grammas and granpas were also very kind-- my mom's parents sent a pair of shoes and a handmade striped skirt (yup! My gramma Nami, skirt maker extroadinare) and my dad's side sent a super pretty mermaid necklace. You all shall surely see these things in some outfit posts soon!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Merry Christmas!

This Too Shall Pass

____Good citizens and blogosphere, how I have missed thee! I shall have some catching up to do and most definitely some intense commenting to do. The evil aura of exams has finally dissipated, so alas, I am free and giddy as a fish in a newly changed bowl of water.
____There is much cooking to be done in our household. I baked about 5 dozen chocolate chip cookies last night, but they are already halfway destroyed, as are the peanut butter cup cookies. It seems to never end! We've also decorated inside and out of the house, pluuus I made my teachers and friends some clay gifts which I will be posting pictures of soon!~ I still have some more things to make soon, too, for parents and brother, hummmm, must do that soon.
____So, yup. This is one of my outfits from exam week. It's funny how I'm more comfortable wearing something like this than jeans or sweats. Jeans make me feel so constricted and un-free from this mighty earth. Prancing around in tights, skirts, and dressies is much more fun and natural and great and wonderful. Hoorah! I hope you all are having a pleasantly cold day!

As the Last of Autumn's Leaves Fell

_____So, I received these reindeer antler and nose set for my car, right? Yeah. So, I put them on, and they were so awesome and Mr. Buggabug was so cute and awesome. Minutes after I left Mr. Buggabug alone, my dog descended from those fiery flame pits and tore up the squishy red nose. Days later, I accidentally rolled a window down all the way and an antler snappped off and onto the road, never again to be seen or heard of. He never even bothered to call home-- ruuude. My mom has fixed the nose, but my car is still one antler short. We have declared him a unideer, kind of like a unicorn, but a reindeer. I get sort of sad when I see these cars with two antlers and I wonder if they judge me, I really do.

A Year of Cheer

____Por qué a year of cheer you may ask? Why, today (well, tomorrow, actually) is my one year blogversary! It's so super exciting. I should have baked a cake for Mr. Blog. But alas, I don't think he likes cake. I believe he is a fan of celery sticks and leeks. He must be part worm.

____So, it has finally gotten cold! This is also super exciting (many super exciting things are happening, don't you think?) since now I can start to wear my plethora of exotic colored and patterned tights. I have been waiting for this moment for a while, just as I have been waiting to put my reindeer antlers and nose on my car. Alas, hours after putting the nose on my car, my dog tore it up and decided to eat part of it. It may be fixable. I do hope so.

____On Black Friday, our malls were suprsingly not that busy. There was a big rival football game and so we're assuming most people were at that. We did go shopping and I bought a few neat things, and yesterday we went to TJ Maxx and I got even more awesome things like a sa-weet military jacket and these Chanel-inspired tights that are black on one side and white on the other. I bought a pair then my mom bought the last pair "just in case they rip because they are so awesome." Yay, mom! Our relatives drove across the States to visit us and we consumed much delicious and satisfying Thanksgiving food. It was so very wonderful! Our four pies have diminished to just a few slices which will most likely dissapear into some mysterious place before tonight. Where that mysterious place is.. uh, I totally don't know and don't have a sketchy expression on my face. I hope everyone found some good deals on Black Friday (you brave souls!) and had a great Thanksgiving. Until later, citizens!

A Step Back in Time

____Oh, blank white wall, how I feel like I'm going back in picture-taking time with you! It could be worse, it could have been my garage door. My excuse for no adventuring is that the weather has been cruddy lately. I seriously would love to wake up and go outside and for it to just be cold as ice cube land outside instead of being humid and rainy and slightly cool on and off. One minute it's raining like we're gonna need to build an arc, then it's sunny and rainy, then it's all "Fool, I'mma act like I'mma rain down on you, but I'm not really going to rain.. or am I? You'll never know, puny human!" and it's probably frightening to you how I can talk to the sky and all. So being the wimp I am, indoor pictures were the only answer.

____Well, hay! Let's brighten up those white walls with some colorful leaves, because everyone loves leaves! I'm glad my dad convinced me to take pictures of the leaves a few days ago, because now all these leaves are on the ground and brown and poopy like and not so pretty. Moving away from the decomposition of leaves due to nature's autumnal equinox, what are your favorite Thanksgiving dishes? I love mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie with whipped cream, om nom nom garf garf nom.

There's Never Enough Time

Abstract Circles ____

______Alas, my crazy week is over!  All my hard work feels like it's paid off, 'cause I've received nine pleasant days off for what I hope will be a most majestic Thanksgiving break . Get it, gurl (or boy, or mutated but friendly cactus plant, whatever majestic thing you may be).

______I made this collage in digital photography class, and all the images used came from pinhole camera photos that everyone in the class took.  I do believe its a variation of a space wormhole dimension that will transport someone to another universe upon viewing it.  Anyone have a theory?  Or did you, too, get sucked into the wormhole?  Photoshop can do sort of amazing things.  I've never used it before this class and it makes me feel guilty, as if I'm cheating.  I mean, being able to undo something?!  Pah!  You can't do that in real life.

Ruby Rises at Dawn

____So many pictures today! I'm sorry, I couldn't choose! They all turned out so loverly. Exploration yesterday led mother dearest, Jean Bob II, and me, to this school that was thankfully empty after its hours. It's so fancy! This is just a small part of it, too.

____While there, I also found my knight in shining armor. Unfortunately, he's not very social. I don't think it's going to work out between me and him since he doesn't like to move much. Or talk much. In fact, he's a total jerk. But you must admit, he's attractive, yeh? Look at those.. wait, where are his hands? Oh dear.

I Will Protect the Constitution

____It's been raining cats and dogs for the past week! Seriously, I almost stepped in a POODLE today. Bahahahaha. So anyway, since I'm really terrible at making funny jokes, I'll tell you about my picture-taking adventure today. Since the sprinkly-rain stuff falling from the sky decided to chill for a moment or two, I thought that today would be a good day to go exploring and take pictures with my tripod, Jean Bob II, who unfortunately hasn't been used that much!

____So off I went, Jean Bob loyally at my side, as I trekked to the closed pool pavillion. I started taking some pictures there until I heard something. A sound. A voice. No, more than one voice. Two, possibly three. Surely they were human voices. By the pool there is a lake, and by that lake there were some kiddies. And one of them saw me. And so I quickly scrambled to my camera, pretending that I was taking pictures of something that was not me. I felt like a creeper for some reason. And then I casually escaped and darted past and behind the tennis courts where hopefully no human souls would be, and where no humans souls were. All was well. I didn't feel like I had to constantly look around to make sure that anyone was there, because trees surrounded me in all directions, I was on a trail that dipped down into a hole, and nobody ever went back there. Here is where I took my pictures, and I must say that they turned out much better than the ones from the pool area. Except for that second picture up there.. I don't know what happened there,-- deep contemplation, perhaps?

____Do you guys have any slightly freaky (or, if you're wimpy like me, not really freaky but yeah still freaky) picture-taking moments? Or any scary moments, for that matter?

____I also wanted to say thank you to Miss Rio from Showers of Sunflowers; I won her giveaway and received these ridiculously awesome skeleton earrings in the mail last week. I've been wearing them before Halloween and for Day of the Dead and I love them like I love me some oreos. They're super cool, not too heavy, and attract random people as a result of their awesomeness and shininess.

____Plusplusplusplus, thank you everyone for commenting and liking my artsies in my last post! I'm glad you guys like my stuff and I'd love to stick each and every one of you into something, so, yay for willing volunteers! Not that anyone in the past has not been willing.. I told you all about the part where you'd have to eat only toothpaste for the rest of your life, right? Right? Good. Have a fantastic week, citizens!
