The Slug Club

I just really like seeing my face atop wrong bodies (ahem, "Arthur" DVD...). ESPECIALLY magical ones

Long time no see


Remember him? I miss him

Reading Day Schmeading Day

It is 9:46, and I'm dressed in business casual in the library. Were it up to me, I wouldn't even be awake right now. I hate finals, and they don't even technically start till next week. I feel like Merope again.

I've been thinking...about Harry Potter

Many BYU students, including myself, have a strong desire to transfer to Hogwarts for a semester, if not permanently, and prospective transfer students will need to how their current studies and credit hours will correspond at Hogwarts. Thus this list was made.

BYU MAJORS AND THEIR HOGWARTS EQUIVALENTS

Elementary Education = Care of Magical Creatures

Marriage, Family, Human Development (MFHD) = Muggle Studies. What matters most here is "your enthusiasm, patience, and a good sense of fun!"

English = Divination. We are filled with a sense of superiority because we have analyzed classic literature and know things that, to the untrained mind, seem useless, but actually contain the meaning of life. So to speak. Much like Divination: "Parvati Patil and Lavender Brown had taken to haunting Trelawney's tower room at lunch times, and always returned with annoyingly superior looks on their faces, as though they knew things the others didn't."

Accounting = Arithmancy: it is boring and hard, but somebody has to do it.

History of Magic is practically a college course already, except that the professors don't enter through the fireplaces. And they're not ghosts.

Religion = Defense Against the Dark Arts, obviously

Foreign Languages = Ancient Runes...because you're deciphering...

Public Relations/Communications = Charms: they have to charm people by being friendly and...okay so I'm not really sure what this major entails exactly. But you have to be charming, right?

Chemistry (any science for that matter) = Potions. Yep.

Marketing/Advertising = Transfiguration: both of these are way more work than they may seem to innocent bystanders...and you're changing a product to the public eye...okay this one is a major stretch but whatever.

Grounds Crew = Herbology

I'm crazy but whatever.

"You can't let it go, not even on your birthday"

Today is my 21st birthday! I'm an adult now, seriously. Don't be fooled by
  • the fact that I've bought Calvin and Hobbes, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3, and the Harry Potter paperback boxed set on Ebay in the last month
  • the "I must not tell lies" Sharpie tattoo I've given myself two days in a row now...well how else is the message supposed to sink in?
  • the Iron Man notebook I use for doodling during class
  • my love for French fries
  • my listening to "Party in the USA" on repeat in the shower this morning
  • the rocks that I got
  • the fact that what I want most for Christmas is a Crayloa Color Explosion Glow Board

Nope, I am a bona fide adult, despite all of these things. I've even changed my age in my little blurb on your right, making the whole thing official.

Also happy birthday to my fellow December 2nd baby and old friend, Britney Spears. You've had a great year, and you're looking awesome lately.

And what movie is this title from?? Y'all know this one

I love Thanksgiving Break...the actual day is great, with all the heaviest, sleep-inducing food I can eat and the gathering of family and friends and the cutthroat game-playing...but I love the whole week. No school, no worries, just catching up with friends and my crazy family that I love so much.

here we are in all our glory

Being back in Provo has its perks though, like being greeted by not one but TWO new Entertainment Weekly's (one of which features RDJ on the cover), a letter from one of my favorite missionaries, and pumpkin cheesecake with the best former roommate ever!

Still can't wait till Christmas...

High schoolers do NOT look like this

Here is a picture of Jon Hamm in high school. Holy crap.
GREAT THINGS ABOUT JON HAMM
  • hot
  • clearly has always been hot, like Abercrombie hot
  • funny on "30 Rock"
  • best friends with PAUL RUDD, and, according to Entertainment Weekly, the two studs get together and play chess. (I could make a list of great things about Paul Rudd, too...one thing I would include: it was his idea for Steve Carell to yell, "Kelly Clarkson!" during the 40 Year Old Virgin chest wax scene.)

And that's why he's on my List.

Monday, November 16, 2009

This time last year...

This week (starting November 16th, which is also Carly J. Curtis' 22nd birthday!) last year we were off to Paris, a land of crepes great and small, gelato, a Jeff Koons explosion all over Versailles, Coolpix wonders (like this one^), and Alex nearly getting left in France.

I am so so so SO excited to go home for Thanksgiving! I just miss the days when "home" meant 27 Palace Court W24LP England, U.K.

No one ever told me about this


Were you aware of this? An iPod with the HOGWARTS CREST ENGRAVED ON THE BACK?!?!?!? Apparently these were available in 2007 to people who also bought the HP audiobooks. I would have done this, had I been aware. Raaaarghhhhhhhh

Worming its way into my personal Top 10

Last night we saw this at the dollar theater... I don't think I can explain well enough how much I loved this movie. Everything about it was completely rockin. Here are the Oscars it is going to win:
  • Best Supporting Actress: Melanie Laurent
  • Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz
  • Best Original Screenplay
  • Best Director: Quentin Tarantino

Well that's how it should be at least. And I haven't seen enough of the potential Best Picture nominees, and there will be ten of them (ten!), so I'm not going to throw that around lightly. Yet.

If I asked Tarantino to choose the music for the soundtrack of my life, do you think he would? Pulp Fiction had about the most face-meltingly AWESOME soundtrack I've ever heard. "Son of a Preacher Man" is now one of my most hard A jams, seriously. Plus I imagine I have legs that go on for days even when I'm barefoot like Uma's when I listen to it.

Even though I definitely do not; mine are more reminiscent of the thumb-thumbs from Spy Kids, which is still related to Basterds because that movie is directed by Robert Rodriguez, who obviously collaborated with QT on Death Proof/Planet Terror. The problem with me is that I don't explain my constantly derailed train of thought out loud, thus making the things I do say out loud seem totally non sequitur.

Oh Rexy you're so sexy

I'm riding dirty to Rexburg, Idaho tomorrow! Claire and I will finally be reunited with Carly and Cami...and yes I'm aware that the majority of my friends' names start with C.

PS: 10 points to Gryffindor if you know what movie this post title comes from...

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

I've got the willpower of that 1000 lb Mexican man I saw once on TLC

MOVIES BY WHOM I'VE BEEN RECENTLY CAPTURED IN THE WEE SMALL HOURS OF THE MORNING
  • Batman Returns
  • Bewitched
  • Overboard
  • The Shining
  • Dodgeball
  • Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
  • Knocked Up
Also "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," but this is obviously not a movie.

CURSE YOU CABLE TELEVISION! I've seen Dodgeball like a trillion times, and Bewitched isn't even that good!

(Except for that "Wherefore art thou dog" scene, which is admittedly funny)

Holla-ween (see what I did there)

Another Halloween has come and gone! The week was full of season-appropriate cinematic gems.

HALLOWEEN-Y MOVIES I WATCHED:

  • Hocus Pocus (3 times)
  • Paranormal Activity
  • Edward Scissorhands (2 times)
  • Beetlejuice (2 times)
  • The Stepfather (sucked, no matter how hot Penn Badgley is)
  • Batman Forever, Batman (according to ABC Family, these are Halloween movies. But they also think Harry Potter movies are Christmas movies, so...)
  • Bewitched (is this a Halloween movie? More than Edward Scissorhands, probably)
  • Halloweentown (will always suck)
  • Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas

Pretty thorough, I'd say.

Then came the costumes...Alex, Nikki, and I were Mario Kart-ers: Yoshi, Toad, and Peach, respectively. Lauren was sometimes a rabbit, sometimes Minnie Mouse.

We adopted this spider cake

The paparazzi (aka Coolpix's timer setting) snagged some pictures of us. Please observe how rockin our Karts are.
It makes me think of other Halloweens I've celebrated thus far in my college career...

Captain Hook in London, Halloween 2008
(a contender for the title of Best Day of Jordyn's Life)



And then Halloween 2007, when we tried to be ice dancers. We looked more like cocktail waitresses (at best).

Now I'm freek-a-leekin' about my favorite time of year (Thanksgiving, my BIRTHDAY, and Christmas) which is just around the riverbend!

Avant-garde, so to speak


I peeled off the outer wrapper and did this instead.

She's just being Miley

Modern technology has allowed me to see what I'll look like if I succeed in growing those coveted Cyrus-y locks. I look like Splash-takes-Woodstock-then buys an outfit at Forever 21...and I don't hate it! Thoughts?

Mixed emotions

Good news:
  • Heart and Souls DVD came yesterday! Best $7 I've ever spent on Ebay. Until Reality Bites comes, which cost $4. [And obviously Dreamphone is exempt from this competish because it cost much more than $7.]
  • I got a Nature Valley Sweet and Salty peanut granola bar from the vending machine at work today.
  • I have some totally brill plans for Halloween costumes.
  • Today is John Cleese's 70th birthday.

Bad News:

  • It is snowing. I have to ride the Vespa home.
  • I saw Paranormal Activity last night. ...I'm still uneasy about doing, oh, ANYTHING by myself.
  • And I have to read Heart of Darkness for my Brit Lit class.
  • I look soo frumpalicious today, you don't even know. [especially because I was still too scared from PA to take a shower this morning...even though there's nothing about showers in that movie. I just can't get it out of my mind! Which is of course the mark of a great horror film, so kudos]

Disney knows what the people want

Here is a shot of the newest Disney prince from the upcoming movie The Princess and the Frog. I feel like Bonnie Hunt when she sees Billy Zane in Only You ("HELLO")

Dang. He looks like Boris Kodjoe, which is a great thing.

Save Kirsten

Ladies and gentlemen, disaster has struck.

Yesterday my mom forwarded me this email:

"Dear friend,

We’re writing with important news about one of the original American Girl dolls—Kirsten Larson®. We wanted you to know that soon, Kirsten’s complete collection will be moving into the American Girl Archives™.

As you may know, countless American Girl fans have found a friend in this brave pioneer girl since her introduction in 1986. Bringing Kirsten’s world to life—from starting at a new school in a strange land to celebrating her family’s time-honored traditions on St. Lucia’s Day—has been a journey we’ve enjoyed sharing.

As we bid Kirsten® a fond farewell, we do so knowing her departure will make it possible to introduce new characters and time periods for our customers to enjoy. In the meantime, don’t miss the opportunity to purchase items from Kirsten’s collection before it’s too late.

Sincerely, American Girl"


What in the world?!! This is so sad. I am one of those "countless fans"! I got Kirsten for my 8th birthday because she looked the most like me--you be the judge.

[little Jordyn on the first day of Kindergarten]

[Kirsten, as pristine as she was on my 8th birthday]

I just don't understand why they even have to knock any of the dolls off the market. Do they not have room? Maybe they should stop adding all those newfangled American Girl of Today dolls...those sluts. They're not even educational. Back in my day, kids LEARNED from their toys! (Picture me yelling this from a rocking chair on a porch while shaking my cane)

And why Kirsten?! Yeah I KNOW Samantha was always the prettiest and richest, and then Josefina was all popular because she was NEW and HISPANIC and BEAUTIFUL (she came out in 1997, by the way...how old do you feel?) but Kirsten is a classic! She's been around since 1986! I wasn't even a fetus yet!

I am seriously very upset about this. Here are just some of the things my hypothetical daughters are missing out on:

Adorable school outfit, which I had/loved
Cute accessories--look at that tiny spoon!


This is horrible. Maybe I'm overreacting, but probably not. I'm going to make a t-shirt that says "SAVE KIRSTEN" and has this image on it:


Seriously. Can Gen X do that if I print out this picture for them?

Tempting...

Okay, obviously I would never REALLY get a tattoo. But if I were kidnapped by a sociopath who forced me to get one or else he'd shave my head and rip off my toenails...or something...I might ask Amanda Wachob to do something like this on my wrist or foot.



images found here


How rad are these? I freakin love 'em. IF I were the type of girl who got tattoos, this is what I would get.

IF.

Eternal Insanity of the Cluttered Mind

I argue that a person can be defined not by the notes she takes, but by the things she feels compelled to write when she is bored in class.

FROM THE MARGINS OF MY FALL SEMESTER NOTEBOOK
{Nothing has been altered. I really am this weird. Only words in [ ]'s have been added after.}
9/1/09
[under a doodle of my name in cursive] Beautiful. Put this on some cowboy boots.
9/2/09
[under a doodle] not going to front--this is one killer treble clef

[referring to a classmate] crazy Ren Stevens in Cadet Kelly
9/3/09
I think I have BO. This is humiliating.
9/8/09
I cannot be held responsible for my daydreams.
9/9/09
Little Things for Which I'm Grateful: I don't have toe thumbs. [apparently that's all I came up with.]

guy in 292 is such an odd mix of [unnamed person to protect my...dignity?], Wormtail, and Dane Cook.

Oh man. It's 6:00. We have 1 hr 40 min left. I can't stay awake

There are 2 definite crazies in here, possibly more

Colin Farrell is so hot
9/11/09
I'm starting my 6th semester of college. What.
9/15/09
my fingers smell like soup from those SunChips. I'm not complaining. Except it's making me really hungry.

If I passed out, I'd be so embarrassed for people to see my notes [so true...]

What is voyeurism again?

NECESITO IR AL BAÑO y hace mucho tiempo [not sure, in hindsight, if this is correct Spanish.]
9/16/09
I can't even remember what credit I'm fulfilling with this class

Fido--where did this name come from? Why is it a cliché name for dogs?

My Favorite Founding Fathers:
1. George Washington
2. Thomas Jefferson
3. Ben Franklin
4. Alexander Hamilton
5. John Hancock

Hugh Jackman is the epitome of Man. Big, trustworthy, hairy, tan, sweaty, good at fighting, rides horses, scruffy...and yet he has the voice of a chorus angel.
9/21/09
Theses feces

I look so horrible right now. Whatever. I'll go home and shower and turn into Cinderella at the ball
9/23/09
Quotation floatation vocation invocation evocation Croatian rotation

Yep, I'm crazy. I'm not even going to bother pretending that I didn't take this picture with my cell phone while watching 4 episodes of "The Office" in between class and work. Why front?

Monday, September 21, 2009

Unprecedented!

In the '90s, everyone assumed that Prince William was going to be the hot one. Well, I guess it's only fair: William gets the crown, Harry gets the good face.

Project Greenlight on the Beach

So how delightful is this picture?


It makes me laugh so much that I may set it as my desktop background. All the pure emotions captured here are priceless: Ben's pride that he can stand on a surfboard while still feeling the underlying fear he may fall, Matt's joy and adoration for his best friend...not to mention those hilarious gams.

Doesn't this just make you believe in humanity?

All I Want For Christmas




This movie is going to ROCK

Not exactly the most hardcore of addictions

Today my English 295 professor said, "I have an addictive personality, just waiting for the right addiction to come along." Thus this list came about

MY ADDICTIONS, PAST AND PRESENT

  • The Sims--this is not to be taken lightly. It was a compulsion, a need to play that game

  • Spider Solitaire--I would go to bed and see solitaire when I closed my eyes.

  • Facebook--obviously.

  • in 7th grade I was addicted to Minesweeper. I would listen to Barenaked Ladies or Totally Hits 2003 and sweep mines for hours. Does anyone else even play that game?

  • summer between 8th and 9th grade I was addicted to Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 on Xbox

  • Harry Potter--a real addiction. This winter I could NOT function without it.

  • this winter I was also addicted to "America's Next Top Model". Best reality show EVER
Apparently I'm a closet gamer; almost all of these are video/computer games. (Even though Minesweeper is the lamest computer game ever, and even I, an admitted addict, know this.)

What a fun sexy time for me

WELL yesterday at a less-than-impromptu dinner party, the subject of one's Perfect Day arose in conversation. Mine would of course consist of Disneyworld, friends, the Clockstoppers watch, the Sims, and London. A highlight of my Perfect Day would also be a party at which everyone I've ever known [and enjoyed the presence of] would be in attendance. However, I'm sure I have friends I haven't met yet, so here is this list:

PEOPLE WHO WOULD BE AT MY PERFECT PARTY ON MY PERFECT DAY

  • Robert Downey Jr.
  • Tina Fey
  • Demi Lovato
  • Rihanna
  • Stephen Colbert
  • Kevin Bacon, if just so I could creep him out with my superpower
  • Seth Rogen
  • Paul Rudd
  • Donald Faison
  • Zach Braff
  • Ryan Reynolds
  • Jon Hamm
  • Will Arnett
  • Amy Poehler
  • the whole cast of "Seinfeld"
  • the boy I loved my senior year of high school because of his utter hilarity but never spoke to because our paths never really crossed...sighhh...



Best party EVER

I could've used this nine months ago

{from a brochure I picked up near the BYU International Study Program Office}
"[Upon returning from one's study abroad,] Some students return home and slip easily back into their school and family life. Others experience a degree of reverse culture shock, which can even bring depression-like symptoms lasting several days or several months...
Some common [aha! COMMON! There are dozens of us, dozens!!] signs of reverse culture shock are
  • frustration
  • boredom
  • loneliness
  • missing people and places from abroad
  • need for excessive sleep

Don't suppress your feelings, but focus on how you can integrate the old and new you."

27 Palace Court, it's been 361 days since the taxi dropped an exhausted and disbelieving Jordyn off on your doorstep, and I still love everything about you.

...Except all that re-entry emotional crap this winter. But that could've been mostly my fault.

My new life as a receptionist

Don't worry, I won't let all this new power go to my head--the power to answer the three phone calls that came today, power to sort mail, power to eat all the Jolly Ranchers sitting in front of me. No, fame won't change me!

I am now sitting here with nothing to do, though. And if the ever-intriguing Anna Thurston will devote time to one of these survey-fillout-email forward things I used to love to do in middle school, then so will I.

8 Favorite TV Shows:
1. Arrested Development
2. Flight of the Conchords
3. Seinfeld
4. Scrubs

6. Sat (lightly, I swear!) on my bed, only to have it slide off of the cinderblocks holding it up and fall to the ground.
7. Attended FHE with my new ward.
8. Didn't really make new friends at said FHE, just talked to the people I already knew. Sorry.

8 Things I Look Forward To:
1. FOOD I am SO HUNGRY despite all the Jolly Ranchers I've swiped!
2. This week's Entertainment Weekly. If that magazine were a man, he'd be on my List.
3. Eventually getting the hang of this new job. Second day is still a little awkward since I don't know anything yet.
4. Buying new business casual clothes
5. A little dinner party happening hopefully this week, during which love between two unnamed persons will undoubtedly bloom! (I'm not either of the two unnamed persons. Typical.)
6. Potentially going home for Labor Day!
7. Football games!
8. Food again. I canNOT stop thinking about it

8 Favorite Restaurants:
1. Chili's, except that was before this vegetarianism, and their meatless options B L O W

3. Pizza Port in San Diego
4. Wagamamas (London)
5. Nandos (")
6. Eat (")

7. The Clockstoppers watch
8. For Robert Downey Jr. to follow my blog. This is a WISH list people, so don't judge me

I'm not going to tag 8 people, even though this was secretly fun because I actually enjoy filling out forms. Hey, my shift's over!

Hard Art Project #1

When Erin and I were growing up in the early to mid-'90s, life was simpler. Austin and Tricia were little lumps who could not yet dish out the snarky remarks they now throw our way, "PB & J Otter" was still a thriving TV show, and Erin would be constantly busying herself with "hard art projects"--usually something like forming clay into a misshapen orb or coloring outside the lines in a coloring book. Well, I've decided to make some Hard Art Projects of my own, starting with this trash can.
I've failed at a lot of things in my life, and I might have failed at spelling Scourgify correctly on my first attempt on the other side of the trash can, but this is one of my proudest accomplishments to date. I pulled out my Bic permanent markers and went to town.

Stay tuned for more Hard Art Projects!

Provo, Je'Taime

Summer 2009 is officially bidding farewell--it's been a beaut involving the Brethren Jonas, Harry Potter, dance parties, the Vespa, and VH1. Today Alex, Nikki, and I sent summer off in style at a farmers' market in the heart of Provo.

{The Aryan fist is mine.}

{without even asking, stall owners bestowed gifts of Snicks,
brownies, chocolate milk, and donuts upon us!}

{PUPPIES!!!}

Thank you Provo for a most excellent summer vacation. Now I must brave the lunatics clogging up University Avenue and prepare for class on Monday...

The Colossus of Clout


What could possibly improve the blogosphere? Why, a blog created by these two hot messes pictured above me, of course! SCB and I decided we have far too many brilliant/gut-busting/witty-beyond-belief commentaries concerning our peers at the revered university at which we receive our higher education, and we now have an outlet for these observations. Click here and enjoy.

{PS: I definitely fall under the "Perpetual Frump" category...}

Oh and here's a list I found in my journal from this April.

WEIRDO FEARS OF MINE
1. pigeons/other birds{I blurred the edges so you could see the stupid pigeon better}

2. animatronic dinosaurs. And real ones, for that matter
3. things that jump out and scare me
4. people that jump out and scare me
5. getting acne scars, like that guy who takes Rizzo to the dance in Grease
6. not ever meeting RDJ {seriously this is on the list.}
7. my future children not liking Harry Potter
8. large knives
9. those arcade games set in haunted houses where you have to kill zombies and they jump out at you
10. haunted houses
11. running out of toilet paper in a public restroom, alone, at the Most inopportune time
12. fingernails like this:
Oh, and no the title of this post has absolutely nothing to do with anything--besides the fact that I watched Sandlot the other day.
