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!
