goodies and Mags

Today Soph and I went to hang out at the Johnsons' and exchange gifts.

We made hot chocolate, and Zoë decorated our cups with whip cream and other toppings(accompanied by sound-effects).

We also watched music videos on youtube, and "Lollilove", a mockumentary starring Jenna Fischer(from The Office) and her husband, about a couple that starts an organization to hand out lollipops to the homeless. lol.

Today was also Maggie Smith's birthday. =D

Here's a funny clip of her in the play "Lettice and Lovage" in 1990.

Hey there, I hope everyone has been enjoying the holidays!

It snowed on Christmas! That never happens in Corvallis!! Sure, at our house it was only for about 2 minutes, but it counts all the same.

I totally forgot to take any pictures on Christmas day, but I did get a few from Grandma's house the next day, where we got together with Dad's side of the family.

Our little cousin Toby is almost 3 now, and was full of energy mostly the whole time we were there. He had time to stop playing with his cars for picture-taking though.

Oh, and here's a random picture of Sophie at Grandma's. (No killing of the sister, missy, if you don't like such pictures being posted, you shouldn't make funny faces at the camera.)

Winter / NT2

Happy Winter Solstice!

Too bad it was such a miserable day. I want snow!!

We saw National Treasure: Book of Secrets yesterday. I was super excited when I heard they were making a new one, not to mention that Helen would be in it!

Though I did really enjoy it, it certainly wasn't as good as the first one. I wasn't expecting it to be exactly amazing though, after seeing the trailers. Kidnapping the president? come on. LOL. That part was still cool though.

What bothered me the most was how Gates went about things this time. In the last movie, he started out being pretty humble about what he was doing; only breaking the rules when really necessary, and so on...

He just wanted the bloody treasure this time. =P For a good reason though I suppose.

BUT, it was incredibly fun to see Helen doing action for the first time, and a great mixture of sweet/bitchiness.

AHHH there are too many of me!!
At least I'm not Mary Smith or something, because apparently there are 40,273 of her. o_O
LogoThere are
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

The Order of the Phoenix came out on DVD yesterday!! Sophie and I bought it of course. The extra features are pretty cool, but there are no bloopers... Not that there ever have been, have there? But, one can always hope. I think bloopers are the best parts. I'm so glad that there are always bloopers on the POTC DVDs. =)

I did a bit of doodling after watching the movie.
I think this is probably one of my favorite parts. My favorite sentimental part anyways.
They would have made the greatest little family. ='(

I was tagged by Qacei

Once you've been 'tagged', you have to write a blog of 10 weird / random facts/ habits/goals about yourself. At the end choose 10 people to be tagged , listing their names and WHY you chose them. Don't forget to leave them a comment ( You're IT ! ) and to read your blog. You can't tag the person who tagged you, since you can't tag me back - let me know when you've posted your blog so I can see your answers.

1.) My biggest pet peeve is drawers and cupboards that aren't closed all the way. I spent a lot of time pushing drawers closed in the kitchen, and sometimes even rearranging stuff so that cupboard doors will close right.

2.) my best dream sign(helpful for lucid dreaming) is flying, which usually happens when I'm running away from something/someone.

3.) I'm rather obsessed with plaid. Green tartan, to be exact. And I just got a green plaid comforter, yayz!

4.) I get new ideas for paintings and drawings all the time, but I get easily bored, so I usually have tons of unfinished art lying around.

5.) I usually have a specific time when I plan to go to bed, but then it's always like 'just one more fanfic' or 'I'll just decorate one more Sims room'... or I get caught up watching random youtube videos... and I always stay up much later than I planned.


7.) I have an evenness problem. If one foot steps on a crack in the sidewalk, the other foot needs to also. If I put one hand in water, I have to put the other one in too. - OMG QACEI, I'VE GOT THAT PROBLEM TOO!! some other examples would be... if I scratch an itch on one side of my body, I have to touch the other side of my body too. And the covers on my bed have to be all lined up with each other, one of the blankets can't be hanging off slightly to one side.

8.) the concept of infinity really bugs me, even though I don't have any other explanation in some cases, I just prefer not to think about it.

9.) I talk to my plants sometimes...

10.) I write in my journal every night. Well, sometimes I miss a few nights. But it's really great to have, because I've been keeping one for almost 5 years now, and it's really fun to be able to go back and read what you wrote when you were younger.

Who I am sending this to:

1.) Sophie
2.) Miriam
Anybody else who hasn't yet, and has a place to place to put it!

Sophie has totally got me addicted to this game:
I used to play Orisinal games ALL THE TIME! and then I totally forgot about them! They're all so simple and soooo adorable.
Find them all here:
and now I'll be wasting all my time on them again....
