Wicked reference. Please get it.

Moving on. I was nominated over on Liam’s blog (Liam, who apparently can’t get enough of me) (ha) for the One Lovely Blog award! The award works as such.

1. You have to thank the person who nominated you on their blog to receive your honor.
2. You have to tell 7 things about yourself and human canoe counts!
3. You have to nominate 15 blog’s [sic] and then tell them of their nomination!

(I’m sorry. I had to correct the grammar. Well, not correct, but point out.)

So, first, thanks to Liam, who’s already been linked on this blog like three times in so many days, so I won’t link him again. If you can’t find your way over to his blog by now, well… We might have to have some Remedial Link-Clicking classes. I very much appreciate Liam’s readership of my blog – as I appreciate all twenty-five of you! (Fail note: bwahhhhhh…)

Alright. Seven things about myself. Here we go.

1. I am blonde, which might explain a lot. 😛

2. I am the stereotypical homeschooler, and I spend most days in my pajamas – if not in bed. I’m usually working, but I’m still under the covers, so it counts. (I am in my pajamas right now, but I have decided to grace my family with my presence in the living room.)

3. I have four dogs. It’s a slight menagerie over here.

4. Sometimes I feel like I have more friends over the internet than I do in real life. (It doesn’t help that all my classmates are internet friends, and that half of my IRL friends are also internet friends: like Frankie and Lauren, for instance.)

5. I’m really failing NaNoWriMo. Like, really. I don’t think I’ve hit the halfway point yet, and it’s June 25th. I’m thinking I’ll shoot for 30,000 by the end of the month and if I’m lucky I’ll be able to hit it.

6. I apparently have a thing for red hats. In my lifetime, I have only ever bothered to buy two posters of famous paintings, and in both of them the subject is wearing a red hat.

I guess I’m just weird.

7. I have a life-size cardboard cutout of the Harry Potter trio in my room, right next to my bed. People sometimes ask me if that creeps me out, but I’m kind of used to it by now. (Though there are days when I wake up really disoriented and I think Ron is a real person and it scares me to death. And then Harry just stares at me all condescending and I have to ignore him.)

Okay, now onto tagging people… I don’t think I KNOW fifteen bloggers, but I’ll do my best.

…gee, this is the hardest part of the entire thing… augh…

Frivolity, Philosophy, and Fandoms

…five to go… AGH. None of my friends have blogs, they all have Proboards!

…ten minutes later…

Okay, you know what? To heck with this. You got ten. That’s more than plenty.

If you can’t tell, I’m still sick. *confetti* I’m off to clean my room and maybe sleep. Adieu.



Ceci N’est Pas Une Post

If you are not familiar with the work of art I am referencing:

What I mean to say by referencing this painting is that this post you are reading is not a real post. I am sick and too lazy to write something intelligent, and I only just now remembered it was Sunday…

However, I do have my guest post that I wrote for Liam’s blog to link for you, so go on over and read that, and pretend it’s over here and that I actually posted something intelligent and somewhat meaningful today. (Also, remember to leave comments and SUPPORT ME, because I have a vague feeling looming over me that Liam is going to try and fight me on the subject matter.

I’m off to take Nyquil and knock myself unconscious for the next twelve hours. Write soon.


P.S. I’m reading C.S. Lewis’s The Four Loves right now with a friend of mine, and I’m taking notes and we’re discussing it, so if you guys are interested I was thinking I might post our musings and thoughts in case you’d like to read the book as well and would like some critical breakdown to go with it. (I love reading critically. Mmmm…) Let me know in the comments if you’d like that or not. 🙂


My plan for today was to post a link to the guest post I wrote for This Page Intentionally Left Blank and a photo of my costume for VBS, but the post isn’t up yet, so you guys will just have to just deal with the picture by itself.

For those of you who don’t know, VBS is a day camp where every day for a week, kids come to the church and learn the point for the day (for example, today’s was ‘No matter what people do, trust God’), and they sing songs and do crafts and play games and stuff… And for VBS, I perform skits with a friend of mine (we’ll call her Stella because that’s the name of her character this week). The skits demonstrate the point of the day in a real life example. Like, this morning in the skit, Stella was upset because a boy in her flight class lied about her cheating on a test – but no matter what people do, trust God – haha, see what we did there? Anyway. In keeping with the theme of the whole VBS (Sky!), my character – Phoebe – is a flight attendant. And I have a pretty awesome costume: my mom is a brilliant genius amazing costume designer and I love it!

I took some photos this morning to share with you guys.

And now I must go to bed: I have to get up early tomorrow to shower, haha.

I apologize for the disjointedness of this post… I’m exhausted.

Love you all!
