Call Me Freckles: September 2009-June 2010. Died due to lack of interest. Stay gold, Pony Boy, or whatever.


Lemony Snicket's autograph

12 May

Isn’t this the coolest thing ever? Trillions of thanks to Stacy at The Ugly Bug Ball for thinking of me when she was at a book signing. Apparently she told him about how I had a quote of his next to a copyrighted picture of Elijah Wood, which he thought sounded “highly suspicious,” which is THE COOLEST THING EVER.

Thanks Stacy, you’re the radest person ever and I hope to return the favor someday!

Okay, time for a blogcation!

30 Apr

I’m going to take a break from blogging for a little while. Or a long while. We’ll see.

Sorry about not finishing this season of The Vampire Diaries, but I was trying to watch last night’s episode and I just couldn’t. It has become terrible and predictable, rather than terrible and ridiculous, like True Blood, which is really dumb, but at least there was always a demon ostrich egg or meat statue to surprise me.

Also, finals are around the corner and the less distractions, the better.

I figure I should leave you with some sage advice or something, and since I give terrible advice, here’s some from one of my favorite advice-givers, Lemony Snicket:

If you are allergic to a thing, it is best not to put that thing in your mouth, particularly if the thing is cats.

Lemony’s the best. Anyway, I hope we’re all cowabunga on this and I’ll see you on the flipside! (I’m sorry.)

Stay tough everybody!

The Chalkboard in my Kitchen Looks Like This:

8 Mar

At first it was Bruce Springsteen (admitedly, this one is not as uncannily accurate), then Daniel Faraday (which unfortunately I didn’t think to take a picture of, even though it was up for probably no less than 3 months). If my parents ever come over I’ll just change what he’s saying to ‘dumb nut’. That’s a proper insult, right? “Hey, dumb nut!” I bet Stefan calls Damon a dumb nut all the time.

It's the Olympics again…

16 Feb

So it’d basically be blasphemous of me to say that I don’t really care about the (winter) Olympics, right? Because everyone loves the (winter) Olympics, and cheering on their respective countries, and watching people ski down mountians in vacuum-packed bodysuits, right? I mean, if I were to actually say that I DON’T CARE about the (winter) Oylmpics, like, out loud, I’d have to be some kind of reclusive weirdo who’d rather read back issues of Martha Stewart Living or something.

Well, since I have said no such thing about the (winter) Olympics, the one event I am looking forward to is happening tonight: men’s figure skating. Tonight is probably the short program, and then they’ll do the long program on another night. Or I could have no idea what I am talking about. Triple sow cow.

The reason I am interested in men’s figure skating can be summed up in two words: Johnny Weir.

I hope Johnny wins all the gold medals the Olympics has to offer because he is the best ever. Have you seen Be Good Johnny Weir? The. Best. Ever.

Merlin's beard! I was nominated for an award!

7 Jan

Here are the rules that came with the award:

1) Thank the person who nominated me for this award.
2) Copy the award & place it on my blog.
3) Link to the person who nominated me for this award.
4) Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
5) Nominate 7 bloggers.
6) Post links to the 7 blogs I nominate.

I was nomiated by Callie of I did it but I’m blaming you blog fame. She’s the best. The blog best.

7 ‘interesting’ things about me:

  1. I’ve wanted to be loads of different things over the years: director, actor, FBI agent, chef, playwright, fashion designer, journalist; I’ve settled on writer.
  2. I’ve seen a total of 5 celebrities (if you can call them that) in real life: DJ Qualls (The New Guy!), French actor Dominique Pinon (Delicatessen, Amelie), Eva Mendes, Travis Barker and Paul Maroon (guitarist for the Walkmen). The only one I actually spoke to was Paul; they opened for Modest Mouse once and after their set I spotted him standing in the back of the theatre by himself holding a red plastic cup. He was very sweet and smiley and just the cutest ever.
  3. I’m a huge Englishophile (if that’s a word). I love everything to do with the country, including PG Tips, BBC and bangers n’ mash. Someday I will live there.
  4. I think Fox Mulder is sexy.
  5. I went to the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Barnes and Noble dressed as Hermione. I was accompanied by Cho Chang and Voldemort.
  6. As a kid I had a dalmation named Kody. There was also a boy named Cody who lived on our street, so we had to refer to him as ‘Cody the Boy’ to avoid confusion.
  7. I like to watch the Disney show Sonny with a Chance. What?  It’s funny! Shut up, you jerk.

7 great blogs:

  1. Self Professed Nerd. 
  2. Esme and the Lane Way.
  3. Kateblogsworth.
  4. The Literary Adventures of Lindsay Monroe. 
  5. Faux Naif. 
  6. Q’s Daydream.
  7. all this happiness.
