HAPPY NEW (MIDDLE OF JANUARY) YEAR!!!! I've taken these last couple of weeks for a personal holiday. And by holiday I mean drowning in the ice cold waters of school.SO back tracking a bit, I hope you had a good New Year from Lane these crazy cats and myself.
Now jumping right into things. Youth you know is a topic Lane and I always seem to be whining about on here and how we try to hold on to it as long as we possibly can. I was inspired by the photos I found on tumblr and found hilarious the second I saw them. What is is with little kids dressed up as food being so funny. I also added the pictures of the amazing marsh mellow guy from Ghost busters Birthday cake (which I want to be the theme of my next birthday) and the little group of friends.
As you can tell i learned how to use Picnik and I'm obsessed with it.
With the whole youth and the desperate attempt to become an adult I always seem to think of the movie An Education. I mean Jenny just wants to grow up and live in Paris and smoke and listen to french music. What I found interesting about this movie is that her parents are super conservative and won't let her do anything she wants but their all ok with the idea of her being with an older man. I found that funny.
Another good movie is Ghost World because Enid's just glad to be out of high school when she's sucked back in again. Her sarcasm and bluntness is awesome. I've been trying to be her. I bought a dinosaur tee shirt and I've been trying to find a sort of Batman mask.
The Royal Tenenbaums. Young Margot is basically exactly like older Margot. She's one of those characters and people who doesn't change. She knows who she is and is happy with herself for the most part. So sit in the bath and watch Tv and write plays and cut off your finger and wear fur and polo dresses with lots and lots of eyeliner.
Mary Antoinette. The real person and Kirsten Dunst is amazing. I mean Mary was only 15 when she married and applies to this topic very well. She didn't know how to be Queen but yet its all "Shame you for not being with child and doing things correctly!!" from everyone.
One of my favorites. Now and Then. Of course partly because of Christina Ricci and another because of the fact its an awesome story. In one summer it's amazing how much how people can want to grow up and don't want to grow up. Also how some of them aren't allowed to grow up. I think this movie grasps very well how you can't really control what happens to you and causes you to get older and mature.
I still love this movie and I loved this when I was younger. Peter Pan (the living people version.) When i was younger I always slepped with my window unlatched hoping Peter would come for me. Then I got older and learned that's not the safest thing to do. I always enjoyed the concept of an Island with Pirates and Indians and swimming with mermaids (but in this one they're evil so never mind) also the ability to fly with fairies. I mean could life get any better. You stay young and have fun and have no responsibility.
Lastly this isn't a movie but a comic I discovered that i love and I find was very much ahead of its time. I'm sad it's not in print anymore but I want to get the book. Nancy!!! Nancy is a little girl who is smart a bit witty. She's also just the sweetest thing ever.

First of all I would just like to say Happy Holidays! Seeing as it is also December 25 ... Merry Christmas!!! I hope you all had or are having a great time this season and maybe got some super duper presents! Speaking of presents, Ella mentioned in her last post that I had been gallivanting (yes I know, awesome possum word usage there) through Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and perhaps a certain Harry Potter World. I would just like to confirm that it is all true! All of it! Arrest me now! I've been shrinking my duties as a world-wide bloggeress and I'm ready for the cuffs!! Thankfully for me, Ella is a very forgivable person, although I'm not allowed to say or type a specific word. It rhymes with borry and starts with an s, but as they say: the blog must go on! Now on with it! I would would like to make just one more excuse and that is that on the same weekend that I strolled through (in my humble opinion) the most magical place in the world or at least the USA, I went to my cousins wedding. The only reason we went to Orlando was because of his wedding and as an early present my parents knowing what a HP (Harry Potter) dork I am gave me tickets to the wonderful place. Ok, ok, I'm done with my excuses for now. Lets get the show on the road...

Long time no post or read or whatever. You get what I mean. This a post where I don'treally know where I'm going with. I just felt bad because I realized that I havent posted anything in a while and the whole reason I decided to start a blog with my friend was so that she could fill in those empty silences when I'm neglecting to post and vise versa but obviously that idea is down the toilet. So a message to Lane: I know you've been busy going to Harry Potter Land in Universal Orlando but what happened to that white board I recall you mentioning a few moons ago!?? You know the one with all of the post ideas. But anyway like this post, our blog is kind of just a bunch of random crap that we've accumulated and put into word form. But it's all in good fun I suppose.
W-w-w-winter, you see what I did there I tried to make it seem like I was shivering. Isn't it funny? Yes? No? Yep so anyways I love winter with the freezing air and the whole "I'm dragging my foot because it's frozen and if I use it, it will shatter into a million tiny pieces." No actually I love winter because like the picture at the top its beautiful. The snow, hot coco, fires (in fire places), and how everything looks clean and just all around pretty. Well actually growing up in California I never had this unless I went up to the mountains. Which my family never did.
But anyway when its raining in California during the winter I always liked the idea of just staying inside and watching movies with snow in them like the Chronicles of Narnia.
year about 5 times and my parents watched it when they were little too. And when I have kids I'm going to force them to love it also. I mean seriously what's not to love about old hollywood movies. It's got singing, comedy, fashion, love and a drama. Also if your a war movie junkie then there's war in it too. Plus I love the whole idea of a little snowy inn surrounded by trees gives me a warm Christmasy feeling inside.
Now just some wintery photos.

Lisa Simpson is the woman of November. I had some trouble coming up with a Ms. November and me seriously lacking in time because of stupid, stupid homework, I needed to say stupid twice so you can fully grasp how much I despise it. I mean I usually don't mind it but GEEZE!! this year its coming on the back of moving trucks. It just keeps coming. Lisa would be disappointed in me because of her greatness in school and she's highly intelligent. I told myself when I first decided to do woman of the month I wasn't going to do characters just actresses but I'm sorry me I'm breaking that promise because it took me two hours on the Christina Ricci post. And I'm tired. I'm falling asleep as I write this to you cyber world.
Lisa's a perfect choice for a woman of the month because of her feeling of being a misfit in the family because of her high IQ, hmmm... sort of like Daria... Oh my God, Daria! The light bulb just went off in my head with the idea of a future woman of the month. Anyway back to Lisa she's not afraid to be who she is (that sounds so cliche but it's true.) She's awesome because she's a fellow cat lover and reader who plays the saxaphone like my cousin which I've always admired. I mean how cool is that!! Also this is a sort of random but has a connection with what this post is about but she even feels bad when she's eating meat because like me (sometimes) she thinks of the animal she's eating while she's eating it. Man I can see it now, someone reading this who's eating like a bucket of chicken or a steak or something like that is pushing way their food. If your one of these people please comment if you are not one of these people please comment. I like to imagine Lane and I have readers. So in closing next time you pick up a book, hear/play the saxaphone, eat meat, or get a good grade on a test think of Lisa.

It's Thanksgiving today!! Before I stuff myself with the deliciousness of turkey here is one of my favorite Peanut's specials, well actually I love all the holiday ones but anyway I like this one because Peppermint Patty has a bigger role in this one and she is my favorite character, not sure why, she just is. Have a great Thanksgiving.
