>Too Long!

>i’m sorry my poor neglected blog! i haven’t taken the time to post to you since i became obsessed with that book! but don’t you dare think it means i love you any less! <3

i’m just gonna go ahead and get my yayas out first (wow, that sounds a bit pornographic):

I AM OBSESSED with The Guide! it is my latest and greatest obsession. i can undeniably say it’s my greatest because it’s my first one that’s going to result in money going to charity. which will end up improving the world. which, for me, is the ultimate goal in life. have no fear, i still have my obsessions with Dexter, Dr. Who, HP, and the Ning; but they’re just all on the second shelf now.

i’m going to Hawaii! Nov. 25th to Dec. 1st! i’ve never been, so it’s going to be awesome! i can’t wait to go and just… ah! experience EVERYTHING! and i’ll be taking pictures like a maniac! and- wow, i need to slow down on the exclamation points. but i’m super-extremely excited about this!

anyway, today i played hooky. just cuz it was better than going to work on a Monday. which gave me time to post a new video! oh yeah, and i’ve started vlogging. i’ve been wanting to, and i got a better camera, and i’ve posted two videos (1 & 2) so far. so, yay!

i have also started a Daily Booth account. it happened like this: @AlanDistro tweeted to follow him on Daily Booth. in order for me to do that, i had to create an account. so i did. and once it was created i figured, “might as well use it.” hence my account on Daily Booth. (and it just took me hella long to find that damn tweet! i didn’t realize i’ve been on DB for a month. :/)

and speaking of Alan, he broke The Guide Staff’s collective hearts when after he commented on this picture and i wrote back, and Karolina wrote him an email, he responded to neither of us! Alan’s a heartbreaker! we’re still smarting from that one.

Random Reckonings:

i just realized that my candidate won in the last two elections i voted in! the American President and the Nerdfighterian President. 😀

“hence” seems to be the word of the week. i’ve been using it everywhere lately!

*sigh* i hit “Update Podcast” for VLR with the sad, sick hope that something would download. it’s sad to know Jimmy and Alex actually SEE each other all the time now, but still, VLR remains dead. i miss VLR. 🙁

i still wish i lived in England. things just seem to make more sense there.

Pics I’v Been Meaning to Post:


this is my basket of stuff i have at work. it will eat you!



been wanting to take these pictures for over a year now. the trick is, fog isn’t too common in LA.



same pumpkin, two sides. Meg chose the confused face. and DFTBA on Daily Booth chose smiley face. 😀

and a quick “weird shit” series:


please explain to me what part of a sandwich cookie is natural? real lard cream filling?


this is a straightening iron. her face is in between the elements of a straightening iron. ow!


they repackaged q-tips. no, wait! they wet it first.


it’s not mouth wash, ok! it’s Pre-Brush Rinse.


it’s not actual whitening, it’s just expressions of whitening.


“A new way to protect & rejuvenate your skin” yeah, ya know guys, i think there’s a reason you’ve got a corner on the market. it’s cuz you’re the only one’s stupid enough to want to smear snail slime on your face. oh, sorry. snail “extract.”


it’s not even Halloween yet. seriously?


and these are just awesome!

>Macy’s Men’s Series

>i still don’t have much to say, but i have a few things to show. this is what you can find on the sale rack in the men’s section of Macy’s.


for when it’s too hot to wear the hood, but you still wanna represent the clan.


downright manly…


and check out the detail!


the color! the buttons. i love it!


surely, it was just place in the wrong section.


also atrocious.

this concludes our horror show. i hope you, well perhaps not enjoyed it, but found it as cringe-worthy as i did.

>weirdos alike

>i thought i was weird yesterday morning when, directly after breakfast, i decided to make brownies. when i heard the timer on the oven and took the brownies out of the oven to let them cool, i saw my brother was having breakfast.

about 20 minutes later my brother gets me to come into the kitchen. “that oughta do the trick!” he says.

he had frosted the brownies.

it’s good to know there’s someone in the universe who’s just as weird as i am. 🙂

>fail

>at the company i work for, we keep track of the work we’re doing by using job numbers. basically, when we do work under a specific project for a specific company, we post it to the corresponding job number. ex: engine design, for Plane Company, J#2222

take a gander at the last job number entry.

i’m not sure if i should be more concerned with what mistakes were made, or that there were so many of them that it actually requires a job number.

>foofaraw

>yes, Dictionary.com “Word of the Day” email. i know you know what you’re talking about. but i think you’ve gone to far this time. and i just don’t believe you. foofaraw is simply a made up word. sure, you can argue that EVERY word is a made up word. but just because you’re Dictionary.com doesn’t mean you can take the liberty of making up your own words, defining them, and posting them on your site. it’s just not ethical.

it’s a little bit insulting that you think i’m that gullible. next, you’re going to tell me that kerfuffle is a real word!

>fall, dating, B2.0

>this morning was the first morning that i could use a blanket! soon i’ll be wearing sweaters and hoodies, wrapping myself in scarves, crunching leaves beneath my feet, and sitting beside open fires! …okay, so not fires so much as computer screens, but those can be pretty exciting, too.

fall IS my favorite season, so i’m super-happy that the weather is cooling down (despite it having taken FOREVER to warm up). plus, my mom makes her famously delicious lasagna every fall. so i’ll be doing my happy dance now till November!

i’ll also be watching B2.0. first to last. because i haven’t before. i’ve watched the first two weeks and now i can’t believe i didn’t start watching sooner! i get it now! i totally understand why everyone loves them so much. (as of now i’m at Jan. 25th)

also, i’m giving this a try (why not, i suppose):

i guess it can’t hurt. i hope it can’t hurt.
