Guess what! I'm finally leaving LiveJournal! My new blog is right here! Look at me using my name. I'm so professional!

Anyway, you should add me to your feed, or bookmarks, or whatnot. I'm going to start blogging more, too! Maybe.

I did fun stuff! [May. 4th, 2009|10:40 pm]
Tonight I taped a construction paper heart to the end of my camera lens and turned out-of-focus lights into hearts! I can't take credit for the idea :( It's all over the internet, but still fun!

I'm interested in testing this out again in a more urban environment, and with different shapes.

Adventures! [May. 4th, 2009|05:45 pm]
Going to the roller derby Saturday night made me want to go on more adventures. I need adventure buddies!

My first adventure would be going to a skating rink (to skate). Maybe I'll do that for my birthday! Maybe I should start an adventure club, and everyone who joins has to do what I say. People would TOTALLY join that!

What I've been doing [Apr. 29th, 2009|10:02 pm]
My art class is a lot more time-consuming than I was expecting! It's still good, but weird to have homework again. I don't feel like going into much detail since not much new is happening, so I thought I'd just post a few pictures of what I've done in my class. (disclaimer: these really aren't exciting)

Our next assignment is a portrait of a famous person. I'm having trouble picking one. I selfishly would like this to double as something I could hang up in our apartment, but I can't think of a celebrity worthy of being on my wall. It has to be someone not too played out (like Audrey Hepburn or the Beatles), but also someone who wouldn't be creepy to have hanging on my wall (like Paul Rudd).

Other than Paul Rudd, I've come up with:
- Christopher Walken (too creepy, also kind of played out)
- Darwin (I believe in evolution and all, but do I want people to think I am ALL ABOUT Darwin? I do not)
- Orson Scott Card or William Golding (authors of classic books that I like a lot - hard to find good pictures of them though)
- Roald Dahl (he's awesome)
- Tim Burton (also awesome, creepy)
- David Cross (creepy)
- Barack Obama (there are a million portraits of him already)
- Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (creepy. Also I have a similar haircut to her, which would make me EXTRA creepy)
- Charlton Heston (awesome! This is totally influenced by my recent viewing of Planet of the Apes)
- Diane Keaton as Annie Hall (creepy, hard to find good pictures)

OKAY. Who would be on your list?

I used to write in this thing pretty often, and I really enjoyed it, and I think I was pretty good at it. Now I'm not angsty enough to write anything funny. That makes me a little sad :( But unfortunately, not sad ENOUGH.

Etsy! [Feb. 9th, 2009|10:28 pm]
I set up an Etsy Shop a few days ago. Just wanted to see what would happen. I promise not to mention it again...for a while.

Twitter [Jan. 9th, 2009|08:09 pm]
I joined Twitter today, as many of you have already learned. I think this will be a great way for me to keep track of what my friends are up to. I also think it will be a great way for my friends to discover that I really don't do much. At all. Except shop for dragon-themed coffee tables online.

But I did find this guy whose tweets are awesomely hilarious. He's apparently pretty popular on Twitter, and also apparently a writer. Anyway, you should check it out. It's kind of like reading through a stand-up comic's notebook. A funny stand-up comic.

For example:
"My kid's got ADD so we're thinking about sending her to one of those concentration camps?"
and
"I'm turning 36 this month and yet I still dress like I just got molested at Gymboree."
and
"Dear Abby, my wife says I should wear a tux to the opera. I say she should wear a tux in hell forever. 1) Who's right? 2) Oh my god call 911"

Christmas [Dec. 8th, 2008|12:39 pm]
The last two years I have put up a tiny three-foot-tall Christmas tree and hung Christmas lights on the patio in celebration of Christmas. I love Christmas decorations and the Christmas season in general because to me it stands for reuniting with family and friends and celebrating the important people in your life. Mark pointed out the other day that it's a little odd that we decorate for Christmas when he is quasi-Jewish and I'm agnostic.

I can understand how someone who is religious would see this as kind of blasphemous - for us to practice the traditions of Christmas with no regard to its actual meaning; but since the holiday means something totally different to me, I kind of feel like it's justified.

What do you think? Is it wrong for me to celebrate Christmas without necessarily believing in its origins?



I should point out that I wholeheartedly believe in getting presents.
