OH MY GOD. I usually don’t get all starry-eyed and fan-girly about TV characters, but I just want to, as Leslie Knope would say, make out with him. On his face. tendertrap:
Drive-by shootings scare me a lot more than they...
Now, I don’t know why the lady in the Lexus would want to shoot me off my pink bike (with the library books in the basket), but, hey- you never know.
Kids are the funniest, ever. Period.
I student-taught in a kindergarten classroom this year, and I learned this- six year olds are the funniest people EVER. Here are some snippets cards the kiddos made me when I left. They are so sweet and hilarious that they’re making me a bit damp-eyed even now. THE YELLOW ROSE KILLS ME. This is the background of my computer. The band? I hope. The best TV show idea ever would...
Your Daily Dose of Joy: On Dresses and Stupid... →
I’m glad that the internet has led me to find people who love making fun of newspaper articles as much as I do.

Also, Jennifer Morrison from House was my new stepsister. Whew. All I know is...
During the busting-out-of-Gringotts scene in Deathly Hallows II, there was a quick shot of a terrified employee who looked EXACTLY like Conan would if he were a goblin. Anyone else notice this?
Per usual, the ladies over at HelloGiggles are spot on. I’ve been youtube-ing old episodes while I scrapbook (mii lyfe iz cRazzzY), and I realized how brilliant Lizzie McGuire was. That shit helped me through a lot of preteen things and taught me about the Rat Pack, to never hang out with someone named Angel, and, of course, that crimped hair is always cool.
A list of things that I did during my stint as a...
-Successfully convinced a child with an Alfalfa-style hair sprout that eating her tortilla rather than wearing as a mask would be in her best interests. -Got stung by a scorpion in the middle of the night and convinced myself that I was allergic to them, then acted like a war hero for the rest of the day. -On a nature hike, saw a baby deer who was clearly on its last legs of life....
