Ask Me Anything! [UPDATED]

I don't have much time.  So real quick. If you take a look at the left of your screen and scroll down, you'll see a formspring me widget for "AllyCat2009".  That meeee! It was time to do it.  I think if enough people contribute, it'll have been worth signing up for. 

So give it a try.

I do warn you.  When it comes to personal questions I get tricky with my words. [Ehh, I just don't care to much about giving personal info out...]

If you have an advice question and it's a good one, I might put it up on this blog.

This could be fun!

Ask away everyone.


*psst* If you have formspring and want me to follow you then put the url in the comment box below! Thanks a million! ;D

I'm not giving up "Ask Ally-Cat" though.  But I don't check it as often... [Actually, I've taken down that page. I found that there really wasn't any need for it anymore, plus, I barely ever checked it.  It's seemed a bit ridculous, you know?]

Happy Friday! :D

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Finally, the week is over. Such a looong week. Don't you think?

Welcome Beca! Thanks for following. :D

Also, thanks for all the advice and support you guys! Wow.  So much love! ^-^


Well, days have gotten better since that last post I had.  And I want to point out some things too, this guy I was talking about.  It was very out of the norm. for him to be so out of touch this summer. He's actually a nice guy, and the whole reason I fell for him was of his views and his kindness.  But not only did he ignore me, he ignored everyone.  Our friends... So yeah.  Not that I'm saying that I've changed my mind.  But it'd be nice to know what the hell happened to him over the summer.

I mean, don't I deserve that. An explanation?

So, Justin Bieber.

I dislike him.

Sorry.  But that's how I feel. 

I don't respect artists who have no talent and become famous. (I'm also talking to you too, Ke$ha!)

Did you see this video? --Silly, boy.

Well, I had my list.  Then I went to post and it failed.  Had relog in.  And it didn't save all of it.  *sigh* Maybe tomorrow.

Sorry you guys.

Everytime I Close Mine, You Make It Hard To See

Well, basically my heart has given out.

But I'm not dead. Like physically, I mean.

(This is such a cliche question but: what is love? Really. Truly. *sigh* )

Well, I've given up. At least for a while.  There's this guy.  And whom shall never be named.  And well, everything is a bit complicated.  Quickly: tried to be friends, went well, summer=ignored (by him not from me), nothing.  I see him practically everyday.  So I don't talk to him, don't look at him.  And vice versa.

I figured: "two can play this game".

And you're probably asking why I'd throw in the towel so easily. Well, it's just too emotionally straining and frustrating.  I need to focus on me, or I'll never succeed in my goals.  So I'm going to pull up my walls.  Block all thoughts as much as possible and well, focus on the now.

If he comes up to me, then...I don't know.  That's something entirely different. (BTW, he doesn't know about my feelings.)
So that's the plan.  It'll be long and exasperating, but I think it shall be worth it.  I know about now a certain person is going to have my head. But as of now, this is how I feel about the situation.  So really: deal with it. 

Unless you,as the friends and readers, can give me a good, valid excuse as to not follow through, speak now or forever hold you peace.

Hannah's Gift

Wait. Before I set up the pictures, I want to say something important. 
  1. Thank you for those nice comments on my post "Art In My Heart 2".  I came home in a sad mood because of work and reading those comments made me lighten up a bit.  So thank you, ЯANdOM ЯAWR and Mizz Ali.  ;)
  2. Work.  I've just got back on the wagon, summer is officially over in my book.  So that means less blogging time.  :/ I'm going to try to blog on the weekends, I've also heard I'm getting more breaks so that probably would be a good time too. I pledge: I shall not give up on you all! I'm finally getting feedback and actually starting to truly enjoy blogging.  Lots of love! >.<

I ruined this one. (Can you see the spot on her cheek where the paper tore?) T_T Had to start over.  Below is the staging process of the new one.

The drawing took several days to get done, maybe four hours every few days.  These are pictures I've taken with my phone. (The last one--far right-- is not darkened so that's not the finished product.)

This is!
Here is the model Hannah showed me to use a guide for one of her characters in her book. Her name is Violet.

The Comparison

You can't really see the shading on the face. Bad lighting. I'm kind of glad I didn't give Hannah the original.  The forehead is waay to big and her face looks distorted.

The promised picture

What it says:
"I am lost...
Lost inside the deep contures of my soul
An undeniable pressure shoving me farther & farther
into merciless pits.
As I turn a corner
there is a feeling of unease
As I press the petal
that feeling is lifted
As I speed by white & yellow lines & concerned faces
I see the ones I loved
As I close my eyes, I think of how they wouldn't understand
Their faces dissolve away
I turn the wheel
Eyes closed & spinning
Still falling, heart beating
intense pressure


This is based off a story I heard, that a boy was depressed and took his car and crashed into pillar on the highway.  Suicide is not the answer.  Please talk to someone. Or call this number : (US) call 1-800-273-8255 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

Art In My Heart 2

*Pssst* did you forget part one? No problemo. LINK

Carry on..

In case you haven't noticed, the title of this sketch is "Mystery Behind the Window".  Apparently this is very confusing to some people, so here is me about to explain. I'm not exactly sure what it is myself.  It was one of those moments when I thought of the phrase; wanted to draw it; blindly drew a girl with a bloody hand pulling back the blinds and two mad eyes; then BAM. That was it.  So make of it what you want.  It was just impulse drawing. . . (I know it's kinda morbid, and it's not reflecting my personality, it's moreover reflecting the phrase.)

Bella Swan.  If you can recall the description from Stephenie's Website, I did this based off that. An attempt to draw manga. And if you're asking what the heck is going on with the hair (dark stripes??)? I don't know what the heck I was thinking with the hair...

Edward Cullen.  I think I did better with him.  What do you think? Bella or Edward?

Kind of a mannequin vibe going on here. I was at first, trying to draw just the chair.  Then I figured, let's add a person.  Hey! Why not make them a girl? Heck, let's dress her in old-fashioned clothing. Hm, let's leave off a face. And presto! Sketch finished. (Note: I suck at drawing hands, so that's the deal with the crab fingers.)

Hannah's picture will be posted hopefully tomorrow.  Why? She reads this blog. So? The picture's a surprise. Though, she did request it, I never let her see it.  Oh... Yeaaaaa. -.-

Oh also. DVA thing.  I'm putting it off. Sorry Hannah.  I said that this picture was going to be my first dva pic, but it's too big and I don't have the time or equipment to scan it. :( Next time.

Hey? Wanna see my Poetic Sketch? Wellll, you can't.  Not till I get Hannah's up.  I'll have it then. What a some sneak peeks? OKAY!


Remind me if I forget to put the poetic one up!

Art In My Heart

Sooooooo many books to read! I want to read Halo by Alexandra Adornetto, but I have these books to get done:
(All these are books I've mentioned in the past)
  • Splendor by Anna Godbersen
  • Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
  • Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Stargazer by Claudia Gray
  • The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
  • City of Ashes by: Cassandra Clare
  • Wuthering Heights by: Emily Bronte
I'm currently reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  Here's the info:
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with every one out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
Gosh, I'm a sucker for romance books.  But this one suuure is fascinating.  Hmm, what chapter am I on? 6, I'm on chapter 6. :P
Let's see.  Manga: I'm reading Our School Dictator President is a Maid?!  Yeah, I know the title sounds cheesy, but the graphics are super good.  The main character reminds me of the one I'm working on...

Real quick--Does anyone have problems when they set up a picture and when you start to type it want to start at the center instead of left alignment and it won't freeeaking switch back?? Golly, does that bother me.  I have to go through this ritual that starts from continuously clicking on left alignment and when it won't switch over, save, go to "Edit Posts", click edit, and start the whole process over again.  I'm sick of it.

Anyways. I spotted this at an ice cream store.  And if you can see Brad's little picture it says "Brad in tears". HA! I don't believe this for a second.  Who buys this stuff? Seriously?

Oh, and I'm going to do something abnormal, which is post two posts today.  I didn't feel like making one huge post. This one is the blog itself, next is some of my sketches. So check that out okay? LINK
Not mine ^!

Vampires Suck Movie Review

Wow, I'm stupid.  I should have done this before.

If you're interested in the books I review recently I have some links for Amazon here.

Princess of the Midnight Ball

Eyes like Stars

*psst* If you like these books, there are sequels.  Check out the Spoilers Page for links to those too. (Just don't read the info boxes because it'll give away what happened in the previous book.)*

And to answer one question: From my understanding, the setting takes place in the past, where there were long skirts and top hats.  However, the writing is very modernized--which kinda throws you off a bit--, so grasping that concept will be a bit confusing.  Though, it also show creativity, I believe.  Annd yeah, Target has Eyes like Stars and the Midnight Ball on their site; Walmart only has Eyes like Stars.  I'm unsure what your retailers have in your local area though, but at least you know that they have them online to order.  :D  Also, I totally added that book to my list.  I'm going to look it up later! Thanks ЯANdOM ЯAWR! Enjoy!

Vampires Suck

Let me lay this out for you. Guys don't like this movie.  So be kind, and just bring your girlfriends, just leave the boys home.  Another thing, if you haven't seen any of the Twlight movies nor read any of the books this movie is not for you. 
As expected this didn't exceed expectations.  My expectations were that the movie wouldn't suck--no pun intended--a lot of my time and that it would be humorous yet still carry a plot.  And it did all those things, yet nothing more.
Can I just say that the actors and actress looked better for their parts than the official movies' actors and actress?  Seriously, Jen Proske (Beca Crane), Matt Lanter (Edward Sullen), and Chris Riggi (Jacob White) all looked like the actual characters Stephenie described in her book! Hey! Producers! Give these guys some more jobs, 'cause they rock. (BTW, Chris Riggi is HOT! Ask Pandora, my jaw dropped when he lost the long hair.) Oh and bravo to Diedrich Bader; you never let me down! xD
Movie time was 1 hr and 20 mins--not counting previews, of course.  Not bad. Actually perfect.  Any longer and it would have gotten old.
Humor, humor, humor.  Pretty decent.  If your a fan like Pandora and I, you'll catch the little things too. But over all, they didn't over do it, and the jokes weren't cheesy. So grade A to that. *Haha, like eggs. Ha, grade A. Lolz, oh geez, what's wrong with me?*
Visual effects and stunts.  Hm.  Well, yeah ok, they were basically as good as you can get with a low budget film.  Again, not bad.  
Finally, plot was nicely played out, I believe. Mixed it up, but not like too much, only slightly. Gosh, am I making sense? Anyways, very nice!

COMING SOON: Hannah's gift staging process.  Sketches.  And more blogging stuff. :)

Eyes Like Stars + Princess Of The Midnight Ball Book Reviews

Hey, what up?

So quickly, here's to deal with Ellen.  The rumor is that when Ellen signed with Covergirl she asked to find alternative ways rather than testing animals. The only thing I found out was that Covergirl is trying different techniques and steering away from animal testing--didn't say if Ellen influenced them.  However, still implying that they are somewhat still animal testing.  SEE ARTICLE HERE.
I'm still disappointed in Ellen.  She is a well known advocate for animal rights; why would she still sign up with a company who still does this?

 But well, it could be worse. 

Eyes like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
"All the world's her stage. Beatrice Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater.  She's not an orphan, but she has no parents.  She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own.  Until now. Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the character of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Theatre by The Book--an ancient and magical tome of scripts.  Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family...and she about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known."

Eyes like Stars was extremely confusing during the first sitting.  And the second. Then the third.  I think about the 6th I was getting the hang of it. It's very much written for those literary fanatics.  Like Shakespeare fans and Thespians and such. After that first chapter, your mind is spinning.  What just happened?
It takes a moment to realize that everything in this book is almost like a cartoon.  Realistic circumstances aren't here in this book.  And for me, that took some getting use to.
the characters are neat.  Very much like their play-written parts, only more developed and refined.  Well done.
Creativity and witt are very much the best I've ever read.  Though, if you haven't read or seen any of these plays: The Tempest, HamletA Midsummer Night's Dream, then you're going to be really confuddled.
Highly recommended for people who are fans of Shakespeare or hunger for new, creative plots.

Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
"Princess Rose is the eldest of the twelve sisters condemned to dance each night for the wicked King Under Stone in his palace deep within the earth.  It is a curse that has haunted the girls since their birth--and only death will set them free.  Then Rose meets Galen, a young soldier-turned-gardener with an eye for adventure and resolve that matches her own, and freedom suddenly begins to seem a little less impossible. To defeat the king and his dark court, they will need one invisibility cloak, a black wool chain knit with enchanted silver needles, and the most critical ingredient of all--true love."
(3 1/2 /5)

Based off The Twelve Dancing Princesses, this book was not at all surprising or awe-inspiring.  It was..okay. Narrative is mostly of Galen, which is kind of disappointing, but not disheartening. I liked the spin she took on this classic story; it really rounded the classic story out.
The writing was normal, not fancy, but not "bleeeh".  I wish she would have added more color to their speech.  In the time period she has them in, it really should have been more in the language they used instead of modernized.
The characters were good. Kind of lacked description, but that's where imagination kicks in. ;)
Really, there isn't much else to say about this one.  Really it's just a book to pass the time with.  Recommended to anyone one with a taste for romance or is a bit bored.

Hope you enjoyed. 

Got any books to recommend?

Tips For Straightening Hair (For All Hair Types)

Hiya! I had to update my recent post.  I did an oopsies so if you'd like to check it out here's the link.  LINK
By the way,WELCOME ЯANdOM ЯAWR ◊! I'm soo glad that I have a follower who is an artist and an animal rights supporter! Woo!
Okay, back to hair. I believe these methods are a sure-fire way to get beautiful, straight hair for anyone. All of my straightening secrets are revealed here! Oh, and I'm not getting paid to endorse any of these products. So let's get started:

What You Need:
 Herbal Essence Dangerously Straight

Remington Hair Straightener

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

Chi Heat Protectant
Paddle Brush and Hair Dryer with a diffuser
Keep in mind, you don't have to use the products suggested.  I find these the best though, but if you have anything better or more preferred, go ahead and use it! :)


  1. Wash hair with straightening shampoo and conditioner. Simple, simple.

  2. If you plan to use heat, put on some heat protectant; if not, use some smoothing serum. (You can use both if you need to.)

  3. If you already have straight hair or are in a rush and need your hair to dry faster, use a paddle brush and blow dryer with a diffuser. (Using straighteners that dry wet hair, are very harmful to your hair.  Anything that you can hear your hair sizzle from, is baaaad!)

    1. In one hand, brush your hair with the bristles pointing out (like the picture above) and the diffuser hovering over it so that the hair between the bristles is getting dried off.

  4. OR you can wait till your hair is dry (or blow dry it dry) and straighten your hair.

  • If you have course, thick, curly hair remember to section off each piece as you straighten.  Also, hair like that takes hours to straighten, no matter how fancy the straightener is.

  • Those who's hair gets crazy greasy after after using heat on their head, use baby powder on the roots of your hair and then brush it out.  (The powder absorbs the oils.)

  • It good to let hair rest every week.  So don't wash it for one day.  It'll be gross, but the natural oils that your hairs produce restrengthen your hair and keep it from getting that fried look.

  • Make sure that your smoothing serum or heat protectant has an "anti-frizz" formula in it.  If you like to pack on the heat, chances are your hair's going to frizz as the day goes on.

  • If you use a blow dryer or straightener a ton, make sure you wash your hair with a moisturizer so it doesn't dry out. ☻
If you have any questions just ask! Good luck!

Continue of Animal Testing (Blog Updates At The End Of Post)


Don't overlook this post! Please look at this list. LINK

Here are some common brands you may know!
  • Arm & Hammer
  • Calvin Klein Cosmetics
  • Loreal
  • Clairol
  • Clorox
  • Lancome
  • Dial Corp.
  • Covergirl*
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Pantene
  • Olay Co.
ETC. ETC!  If you are using any of these products listed and care for animals, especially ones who are poked and prodded with chemicals and possibly harmful products, then stop buying/using these products.

And I say screw celebrities who endorse these companies and also support animal rights without making sure they were informed about the company's manufacturing and testing programs before they signed up for it.

Yeah, I'm talking to you, Ellen DeGeneres.

And hey, you companies, you're right up there with BP on my list.  GO BURY YOUR HEADS IN COW PIE, DOUCHE BAGS!
Note: [UDATED] I SCREWED UP ON THIS PART!-- In the listing, [the] makeup brands that [have links to them] are working on reducing and all together stopping their practice of animal testing. Still, it isn't right that they do it at all, but it's better than not doing anything at all.  I'm not sure about Maybelline. [Some websites were saying that they proved to PETA that the DO NOT test on animals, others say that they DO...]

*Not sure

Okay, the anger is out.  Sorry about that. I was looking for matte pressed powder/liquid stuff and I was interested in Dream Mousse by Maybelline, so on the safe side I went to look up if they tested on get the rest.

Real quick, so up coming things:
  1. I know I promised for the straighting post and it will come.  That's they next post.  Don't have a date down yet, but yeah.  A promise is a promise.
  2. Hannah's picture is practically done.  Just a few touches and outlining and it should be good to go! I'll have process pictures up after she gets it.  She reads my blog and I don't want to ruin the surprise for her.  :P
  3. LAUREN: here are the dates for Casandra's upcoming books and the reviews for MI : LINK
  4. Some of my sketches might be posted in the near future.  May not be in the best quality though.
Friday I was at the book store and found the last volume of Wild Ones (Arakure) and got to look at the last page.  I was soo disappointed in how it ended when I read it online, now that I saw this page I'm a bit more satisfied. If you'd like to see this page I have it on my spoiler page. LINK

New Blogging Technique and Possible Bella Swan Look-a-like?

Sand art - Soo flippin' cool! "Ukraine's Got Talent" for sure! :O

Autistic Artist - Wow. *Runs off and cries by wonderful talent*


So I thought I could take pictures of some neat-o stuff that I see when I'm out and about, or just cooped up in me home.  What do you think? Good idea? No?

I was at an ice cream shop and look it!

Look at those cones! HOLY MOLY! Gimmie gimmie!

Doesn't this look like the Bella Stephenie Meyer portrays in her book?

The Description of Bella Swan
"In my head, Bella is very fair-skinned, with long, straight, dark brown hair and chocolate brown eyes. Her face is heart-shaped—a wide forehead with a widow's peak, large, wide-spaced eyes, prominent cheekbones, and then a thin nose and a narrow jaw with a pointed chin. Her lips are a little out of proportion, a bit too full for her jaw line. Her eyebrows are darker than her hair and more straight than they are arched. She's five foot four inches tall, slender but not at all muscular, and weighs about 115 pounds. She has stubby fingernails because she has a nervous habit of biting them. And there's your very detailed description." ~Stephenie Meyer, Official Website: FAQ of Twilight

Okay maybe not exactly dead-on, but that is how I've always seen Bella in my head.  I mean, the exact image. Creepy. . .

Anyways, what do you think?

Just Pictures

I don't know if you can see the words, and I'm not sure if I even mentioned this before, but got shut down.  Some of the authors found out about the website and even though the Onemanga creators had scanning rights they shut the site down anyway.  This is what popped up when I opened the site for the last time.  It's gone now. :(

Kinda blurry.  I was doodling in an airport waiting for my gram to come in.  I had just finished The Glass Castle. And I was inspired to draw one of Jeannette's many and most memorable homes. (The black background/shiny thing the paper is sitting on is TSSLOBT. Those who've read the book, can you guess what the box thing is by the two trees in the top right corner is? *hint: it is not the garbage hole*)

Lauren drew this for a friend's b-day! Isn't it good? :D

I play with my food.
Don't judge me!

For the life of me I can't remember what website I was getting on, but this error page popped up and after reading--and laughing--at it, I took a picture of it.  Can you see it? (If it's too hard to see: click on the picture and it'll bring you to a different window and blows it up.)
**That was for you two, Jen and Lauren!**

I'm freakin' not kidding you. This is in no way, shape or form, edited in any way.  *hehe* You sign  creater people crack me up.

I hope you enjoyed.  Btw, saw The Other Guys. I may do a review tmrw!!

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: Book Review


You know, this was a fascinating book.  Though, I didn't like it too too much.  I'm always a bit sad when a tragic book comes to a close. I liked that at the end I got to hear --or more over, read-- what Bree was thinking during her last moments as a vampire.  I'd like to go back now and read that part of Eclipse; just to see Edwards reactions to what Bree had told him if it was even mentioned at all.
You guys know I'm a Stephenie Meyer fan.  I love how she can smoothly describe things and it makes sense.  You can picture what she's trying to say--it's like art.  And well, you know me and art.  In this book it wasn't fantastic.  I'm guessing because of it's length and it's narrator, you'd have to "dumb it down". (Like Bella was wise for her age so simply the narration in her saga was more sophisticated and thoughtful as Bree isn't as smart and so her perceptive wasn't as 'sophisticated and thoughtful'...)
There was some points that I really wanted to get clear up.  Especially Diego.  I won't give it away, but if you read the book you'll know what I'm talking about.  Also, I hope she tells us what happens to Fred.  I liked that dude.  He was interesting and complicated character.
Bree Tanner was a great character.  She wasn't dumb like the others and in a way, is like Bella.  (For those who've read BD I think you get the hint. ) So way to go with that.  She wasn't a bore! Yay!
Another problem I had was that I couldn't comprehend the way these newborns lived.  I kept thinking about how the Cullens lived and how better they were and that well, newborns suck.  In my head I repetitively compared the Cullens to Riley's "kids" and kept thinking how wrong it was.  I really wanted to go back to the Cullens and not this deadbeat "family" who were immature and out of control.  It was almost to the point of annoyance. *sigh*

So in a nutshell I say all those who are curious about normal newborns and want to know more about the crazy army Victoria created go ahead and read it--all I can say is that you might have the same problem as I did with the comprehension. Also if you haven't read Eclipse yet and are thinking about reading TSSLOBT then go ahead.  It'll actually make Eclipse a bit better to read, because Eclipse is a somewhat boring so I think this novella will give it a kick if you read it first.  ;)
Songs I listened to during the typing of this post:

Twilight Saga: Eclipse Movie Review

(3 / 5)

Let me first say that I didn't particularly like Eclipse the book, so Eclipse the movie didn't much appeal to me.  The only interesting part I liked was the back stories--but even those were shortened and not what I pictured.

Visual effects were pretty good.  I thought the wolves were adorable.  My friend kept laughing at me when I'd aw at them.  Anyways, it didn't look cheesy like it did in Twilight, but it wasn't as nice as New Moon.

Waaaay tooo long.  Not counting the ads and the 2 preview trailer, it was 2 hrs and 15 mins long.  Started out was okay, but your bum starts to hurt like crazy after an hour and by the time you get to the climax you just want to get the hell outta there.

Ah, the characters. Firstly, wtf with Jasper's accent?!  In all the other movies he never had one.  In this movie he had this off and on southern accent.  I mean, I understand why and where it comes from, but if they wanted to have an accent for Jasper than they should have started that in the first movie!  And like I said, it wasn't a continued thing; it was off and on, especially during the training scenes. I call it Spontaneous Southern Accent (SSA).  Nice, right?
Also, Alice and Jasper.  I didn't really like that they're relationship is so ... showy. In the books, it was almost a strange mystery as to why they were attracted to each other.  So that was a bit disappointing.
Lastly, I hate how they've made Rosalie so very shallow.  The way they told her story.. I won't give it away, but it didn't seem to help her character.  You see, in the book, I came to like Rosalie a little more after hearing her story and how she pleaded with Bella to not become a vampire.  I believed she was sincere and concerned for her.  (However, after BD I went back to disliking her again.) It just wasn't rounding her character to me. I've come to think they're doing it all for BD.  Which, I guess, makes sense.

The only thing I can say is that this movie was okay. There were parts that I liked and parts that I didn't at all.  I'll be interested to see what they'll do for BD.  ( I also wonder how they'll rate it...) The one thing I wish they would have done for the movie was the quote about the eclipse.  (You know, when Jacob compared him and Edward to the sun and the moon?) For readers of the series, I guess it would bother them, but for those who haven't read the books I think it would have been nice to have that quote so that they'd understand why the movie/book is called Eclipse.

Well, I hope you enjoyed.  Next post will hopefully be my hair tips.

Adios mi amigas!

I was at Target the other day and saw these post-its in a dollar bin.  It said things like "Conserve!; Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle!".  You get the jift. Anyways, I didn't buy it in the long run.  The post-it paper wasn't made of recycled paper.  Talk about hypocrites.

Way back in spring, I drew a bunny for a little girl who I had been my "buddy" last year.  I came back to see her and she ran up to me and gave me a Easter drawing.  Touched, I decided to draw her the most symbolized part of spring and Easter: a bunny. I also decided to make copies for her teacher so that they'd could color them if they wanted.  Though, the little girl got the original. :) Later on, my mom requested that I do one for her class.  I drew her a baby chick hatching from an Easter egg.

I own this picture. Do not use without my permission.

I don't have the picture of the chicken.

The reason I bring this up--and the picture--is that I finally figured out how to get pictures from my phone to my computer. The bunny was one of the ones I retrieved.  I'm super happy about it.

Saw Eclipse finally.  Review and promised posts will come soon.


Life's For Sharing

When I see videos like this, it makes life feel like it's worth living for.

T-Mobile Dance

Here is a group on Youtube called Improv Everywhere.  What they do is go around NYC (and Canada, at times) and pull pranks on the public.  These pranks are harmless and usually don't cause too much disturbance -- I have seen them arrested at times.  Like the T-Mobile Dance video, the things they do warms my heart and other times, it makes me laugh.  So without further adio here is their channel.  (If you are a Youtube member then SUBSCRIBE! They're amazing!)

My Favs!

Where's Rob?! - Takes place a basketball game. I wish I was there.  I'd be shouting at Rob too.

Best Game Ever! - This had to be the most expensive and kindest thing I've seen them do.  *Lauren--don't you wish they did this at your games? lol*

Halloween Prank in NYC - May not be their best but it make me laugh when they started hounded the other car for stealing their candy. 

Home Depot Sloooow-Mooo - I can see all my buds doing this in like a Walmart! WE SHOULD TOTALLY ORGANIZE THIS!  Oh, best part-- the employees' reactions!  Get the low down on the agents involved in the stunt!

Department Store Stunt - Next time your in NYC, look up more. ;)


Check out their other stuff.  It's fantastic.
