Art Kick!

Fortunately I have been inspired as of late into getting back to my art. This means more fun and more money! Here's just a couple of things I've done.... more to come soon!

First Image: Wanted to try drawing a character of mine in a more fluid, expressive pose from behind.

Second Image: Captain Happy dancing joyfully. Another attempt at a silly carefree pose to express his character and demeanor. I'm quite pleased with the outcome. :)

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Thank You Karma

Oh Karma.... you have such a sense of humor.
Making me go through hell and a half.
Then letting this man enter my life who just so happens to go by the name 'Happy'.
Who just so happens to love with as much intensity and passion and hunger as I do.
Who happens to share my interests and be open and honest and clear.
Who happens to say the things I want to hear and actually mean it.
Oh oh...Happy.

Karma, I see what you did there...

Why you should own a PS3

Here are some reasons why I'm going to get a PS3 and why you should have one, too...

I played Little Big Planet before with my friends Alex and Michael back in college on Michael's PS3. It's the most ridiculous cute and fun thing I have ever had the pleasure of playing! It's like dammit, why didn't I think of this first? It appeals to my need to be surrounded by small, cute squishy things and my creative side which loves to dress up the little sack boys in charming little clothes and costumes. I highly recommend Little Big Planet, and I'm sure the second one will be ever more killer awesome. It appeals to everyone's inner child, especially mine.

I played the original Mafia game many years ago and I liked it. Never finished it (went off to college and my older brother now owns all the game systems.) But I did enjoy it. I've had a fascination with the Mafia early on in life, so of course I wanted to have a chance to be sucked into a temporary world of men in suits, guns, fast cars and all with the flair of the 1920's. And now they have MAFIA II coming out and I'm SOOOOOOOOOOO excited! It looks even better than ever! Oh, you better watch your back, my friends before you find yourself wearing a pine overcoat....

Red Dead Redemption.
Wild West.
What's not to love?

And finally, Eyepet. This is why I should own a PS3 (according to my friend Alex, and I highly agree with her.) Even though its not out in the US yet, I hope to have a PS3 by the time it does come out.


Can't get this song out of my head! It's Passion Pit's "Sleepyhead", the song that the Little Big Planet 2 trailer used. Enjoy. :)

This looks familiar...

Oh yes.... that's right.

So I kicked sugar/sweets for two weeks and damn the first few days were brutal. I didn't realize how addicted I was to the stuff... and what a tolerance I had built up! For the first week no other food seemed appealing to me, not even a delicious rare steak with mashed potatoes...

Finally 2 weeks pass and I celebrate on Vday with cookies and candies! GOOD RIGHT?!??

NO. D:<

I felt so ill after eating sweets it was ridiculous. The thing I had been craving for so long ended up killing my insides. So now its Wednesday and usually within a 4 day period I would have eaten so many sweets things by now. But I can count on one hand how many sugar filled things I have had. The last thing I ate was chocolate crepes and that was Monday evening.... I think I'm good now. Sweets are now going to be an occasional thing, if even that.

Yay for being good to your body!


Just the route I have roughly plotted out.

Loved Ones

This commercial had me tearing me up...

Brilliant Web Comic!

I dare you to try and stop reading...

Old Spice

Ah! It's been a while since my last post!
Well a friend of mine shared this with me and I couldn't resist sharing it here.
Some of you have probably seen this.

The last line is the best for me.

Cyanide & Happiness!

I laughed so hard.
I love these comics and now they have animations for them!
Damn, I want to master Flash so that I too can do crazy little animations.

Places I Want to Be

A few places I'm going to visit some time in my life. I've already been to Ireland, but I never want to stop going. Look at these beautiful pictures. I can't wait to actually be there...




Anyone wanna come with?

The Lovely Faces of Men

Top 5 Actors

That I wish I could crush in a bear hug!

#1 Tim Roth

There are only two people in this world that I might consider having a baby with. Tim Roth is one of those people. If I ever met this man I'd probably get a restraining order. How could I not want to hug this guy all day? One of my favorite actors and I love him in his current show Lie To Me. But I also loved him in Reservoir Dogs and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

#2 Heath Ledger (The Joker)

Alright, just hear me out on this one!
The Joker needs a fucking hug and that's what I'm best at so why not?
Miss ya, Heath....

#3 Daniel Craig

Love his broodiness, especially in Casino Royale. Feels like the type of guy who spends his whole day doing the rough and tumble and just wants to come home to be curled up close with his gal. I can admire a man like that and I'll be damned if I didn't want to give him a hug!

#4 Josh Holloway

Mmm. Mmm, mmm, mmmm.
Anyway, didn't know about this guy until I started watching LOST. If anything, its worth watching just because of this guy. If I had to be stuck on an island with someone, I wouldn't mind if it were Sawyer (the character he plays on the show.) Hugs galore for this lovely long haired man! Mmm, scruffy.

#5 Callum Blue

Just because he plays such a pathetic character in Dead Like Me called Mason that always looked like he needed a hug. I would hug this guy and even buy him a drink if it meant I could see that silly, honest smile.

If I had a ridiculous Super Power...

It would be the ability to turn into Sean Connery, but only when I'm scared.
(Only the Sean Connery from Zardoz though.)


When I eat mangos, I think of you.

Would it be worth it?

Just watched one of my favorite movies again. If you haven't seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind yet, I highly recommend this Charlie Kaufman film. In the movie, a fictional procedure to erase specific memories is offered to the public. It follows the crazy ordeal of Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) who is trying to forget his ex-girlfriend who has already done the procedure herself and forgotten Joel. Such a sad, bitter-sweet film. Watching it again made me wonder if such a thing could be done, would I willingly get some of my memory erased?

Perhaps I was happy in a relationship when I first saw this movie, therefore I did not consider wanting to forget someone so bad. This time around, it did spark a deeper emotional cord within myself, because I too sometimes wish I could forget people. But then again, I don't. I remember too many happy moments in my life that I shared with the one I used to belong to. The good times, the bliss, outweigh the heaviness in my heart from the sadness I endured. I would not want to forget my past loves. There is a place for them still in my heart.

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
"Eloisa to Abelard" by Alexander Pope

The only reason I could possibly consider myself getting the procedure is just to have another chance. Forget the past, the bad times, the worse of times, that I had with my past love. Forget it all so that I could have clean slate. Another chance without the baggage... wouldn't that possibly be worth it? I do not know... again, I doubt I would give up my memories. The ones I do have, with all the bad and the good thrown in, I keep close to my heart. It was a learning expereince on many levels. You have to know where you have come from to know where you want to go.

Here's to keeping strong, knowing yourself, accepting the past, both the ups and the downs, cherishing it all. Stay beautiful.

When I was young

Look at this beautiful motherfucking horse.

Damn... this horse is pure power.



Okay, so ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved horses. What little girl didn't? I used to say that when I grew up I wanted to be a horse.

Well I'm 21 years old and I'm still not a god damn horse....

I used to spend most of my time running around on all fours, pretending be anything from a horse to a wolf to a prowling big cat. Emulating each animal's distinct sound brought me great joy and pride as I snuck up on friend's and family, howling in their ears.

I would prance like a Lipizzaner....

Growl and howl like a wolf....

Stalk like a jaguar deep in the jungle....

Pretending to be an animal all day long was the life. But just because I've grown up doesn't mean I've lost that side of me. If anything, its more amplified!

I still run around on all fours.... (;
