Blast from the Past

Check out this picture from a 2003 issue of Vanity Fair...here we have Evan Rachel Wood, Hilary Duff, and Lindsay Lohan, all smiles and innocence. Isn't this freaky? Evan Rachel Wood is working but is also rumored to be engaged to Marilyn Manson, Duff's only noticed work last year was in the OM3 in this Blake Lively-heavy season of "Gossip Girl", and Lindsay Lohan is an insane, self-destructive pariah whose movies premiere on ABC Family instead of in actual theaters.

How the mighty fall...

"Hey Kevin!...where are your brothers?"

Okay, I know that this makes two lust-centric, male objectification posts in a row, but here's what I watched last night:

Joe Jonas, ladies and gentlemen


Suddenly Joe is all grown up and looking AWESOME!! He looks even more pulchritudinous next to poor Randy.


Then to my excitement, I see this online today at work:

Now I'm full of confusion. I think Joe is still my favorite Jonas, buuut Nick is just racking up points left and right.


Never mind. Joe wins.

Wednesdays with Ryan


"[wistful sigh] I wish I weren't stuck with stupid Scarlett...then I could spend all my time with Jordyn, who is cool and funny and looks somehow both hip and professional in her business casual everyday."

(His face is just screaming this.)

Potential horcrux(es)

On days like today, when
A.) crazy moms keep calling me, hating me before I even get a chance to tell them that no, I can't cheat the system and get their kids signed up for EFY after the deadline--however badly I may tell them I want to stick it to the Man (who in this case, I hope they know, is God),
B.) it's Monday and January, the worst day and month, and
C.) my hair's looking weird,
I'm so glad that I made the decision to buy these slippers at DI this weekend:

Yep, I now get to come home to these friendly faces

And they're in mint condish!...basically!

All for the low, low price of $3.00.

Fezzik, are there rocks ahead?

John Donne looks exactly like Inigo Montoya...or at least they have the same haircut. Extra love for people who can finish the poem I started in the title.

Now Facebook is ruining my life.

If Facebook weren't a part of my life...

  • I wouldn't be stressed about people not writing me back on my wall
  • I wouldn't be stressed about people not writing me back on FB chat
  • I wouldn't be stressed about not sounding funny enough*
  • I wouldn't be stressed about my profile picture not being funny/attractive/clever enough
  • I wouldn't be stressed about potential relationships certain boys may or may not be in*
  • I wouldn't sink to such low, low levels of creepiness
  • I would have so much more free time to do far more important things, like read novels, write novels, learn Esperanto, cure cancer, etc.
  • I wouldn't have to know about children from home growing up in all the wrong ways

*I still might worry about these things.

Oh and that's not a picture of me.

TV is continually trying to ruin my life


I'm just innocently trying to watch Miss Congeniality on TV after a long, crappy day, and E! has done such a horrendous job of editing it that I can hardly enjoy it. Song montages ruined, commercials in the middle of scenes, jokes removed for no conceivable reason...horrible.

Right in my own backyard

BYU has one of the most epic college campuses in the world, see?

this photo was taken by my iPhone

...not

because I don't have one.

Don't hate

because cell phones can be cameras, too.

There's no rhyme or reason to this; I'm just bored and got distracted by these new/forgotten gems from my phone.

This is Pudge, my little prince
The JKB hallway yesterday was the embodiment of the word "buzzkill"
Think this is a green screen? Think again, nerds


And here's me, wearing a thousand watt smile and too much eyeliner


a shirt I saw at Urban Outfitters that made me laugh out loud


Two of my greatest accomplishments to date...I want more henna so I can draw more spells on more skin

Oh yeah, once I had brown hair and Gilderoy Lockhart bangs.
I look like a huge tool.
This was not that long ago.

Unintentional Sherlock Holmes Propaganda

WELL Christmas is over, and 2010 is already very different than 2009... but first! a recap of Christmas.
  • saw Sherlock Holmes not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES. (And there was very little arm-twisting involved; it was strictly fate. Except I sort of forced my family to go see it after I saw it once.) Call me crazy, but I loved it. I mean, we all knew I would, right? But it was a legitimately rockin movie, even if not everyone agrees with me, and here's why:
  1. Robert Downey Jr. knocks another one right out of the park with his acting, humor, and good looks
  2. Hans Zimmer provided possibly my favorite movie score EVER, with the exception of those by John Williams who is exempt from this competition because he is The Best...you might not care, but Hans also did Pirates of the Caribbean and Lion King. Sooo...yeah.
  3. Sweet fight scenes
  4. Jude Law is hot, too
  5. Um this was seriously a funny movie. Two guys who love each other are always funny. Two examples off the top of my head: Turk & J.D. and Butch & SundanceExhibit A
6. Remember how we saw them film a [very brief and sadly RDJ-less] scene in London last year?!a picture I took on the set...of course the lens cover was slightly closed on the corners but still.
  • Wow that was a lot longer than I'd planned, whatev. Christmas was also fun because my sister Erin got her wisdom teeth out, giving me a reason to sit on my butt and watch movies for 24 hours straight. In one day we watched The Santa Clause, The Grinch, some random movie that ended up being good called Nothing Like the Holidays, A Christmas Story, and the first two discs of "Pushing Daisies" season 1.
  • Christmas itself was very, very fun--games, food, new toys, slight frustration with each other due to the aforementioned games...but despite all the Canady Insanity, we love each other and it was a really great Christmas.
  • I read Harry Potters 1, 2, and half of 3
And now I'm back in sexy Provo, preparing for my sixteenth first day of school. There are a lot of ch-ch-changes happening around here...like two of my best friends leaving for completely awesome study abroads (or studies abroad? So what who cares?). But two OTHER best friends are now joining me at BYU, so at least things are still even, right? Today feels weird and transition-y, and I can't wait to just have things settle. Sorry this is all feeling-y and full of words that aren't actual words.
