Listening To: Merry Go Round by Kacey Musgraves
Line Love: "But Goldenrod had only been named Goldenrod because her mother was an avid gardener and her father lost the coin toss on the day of her birth. Had her father won, she might have been named after one of his hobbies, which included cooking and amateur house repair." - from The Mapmaker and The Ghost by Sarvenaz Tash
I've been playing tug of war with some deadlines this weekend (*pops knuckles* *stretches*), so my head's all wound up with words.
And I think it's safe to say that I'm getting a little bit stir crazy.
Proof: This morning, I stomped through my living room singing, "REVISION!" to the tune of Fiddler on the Roof's "TRADITION!"
This morning = 2 AM.
(Can you spot the flying pig in this picture?!)
And then I went to take out my contacts, and poked at my eyeballs to get them out and then, and only then, did I realize: Oh yeah, I'M STILL WEARING MY GLASSES. (Tell me you've done this? At least once?)
Sometimes, when deadlines start taunting me, Biscuit's a real trooper about it. She'll get this feisty little stance like, "Let's do it! WE GOT THIS!!!"
... And then sometimes she props her REAR on the keyboard and falls asleep as if to say, "We're done for the night. Seriously, done. No more. Go to bed. Don't worry about me; I'll just sleep right here." (*closes eyes* *zzzzzz*)
(She's too cute for her own good.)
So that's what's up with us!
And now I have some questions for you, that I'm hoping you might answer down in the comments. Help a girl out? Here goes!
2. How do I watch The Lizzie Bennett Diaries? Your comments have convinced me that it's rad but I'm not really sure how to start. Is there a starting point? Or do you just kinda meander around on the YouTube channels and tumblrs and all that and ... start wherever you want? (These questions are probably dumb but I'd like to get it from the beginning as much as I can...and there's so much that I'm not quite sure where to begin.) (Also, are there two Darcy-esc characters?)
3. Children of the 80's, do you remember She-Ra, Princess of Power? Because if you do, 1.) you are awesome and 2.) I need you to help me with something. I loved She-Ra. I owned a Crystal Castle (except sometimes She-Ra had to share it with the My Little Ponies). I even dressed up like She-Ra for Halloween when I was little
Anyway. I found a cheap She-Ra DVD ($2!) that I'm sending to my BFF, for nostalgic purposes. And I found this picture on the back:
What is that pink thing?! Why don't I remember it?! Did She-Ra have a ... pup-icorn?
4. What's the best movie you've seen lately? Because for at least a few hours this week, I probably need to not look at words, and I would love to look at a movie screen instead. You know what I really want to see? Jack the Giant Killer! But I don't think that's out yet. That Nicholas Hoult is a doll though, don't you think?
5. Friends on the East Coast who got blizzard-ed: do people rush to the store and buy up all the milk and white bread when they hear a snow storm's coming? Or is that just a southern thing? (I rush to the store and buy Oreos and coffee, but milk and white bread are still big, apparently.)
Okay! Pup-icorns and movies and Lizzie Bennett. We have much to discuss. I'll meet you in the comments.
