Happy Birthday Brother!

Today was a crazy kind of day, but there is always something that is very good.

And today’s very good is that it is my one and only BIG BROTHER’S BIRTHDAY!

He turns 40 today! And everything is turning up roses for him! He has a fancy new job, a beautiful and super fun wife… and two beautiful and rambunctious and adorable daughters. One who at the age of four is practically my grown up adult height.

So good job on being really tall too, Tony!

Anyways, I heard that they had a wonderful day full of good food, except for an intercepted cupcake. I hope you have a super fun weekend brother, and if you notice the drawing is of you at a California beach…. because I am so excited about your visit I’m already illustrating it!

Happy Internet Birthday! Can’t wait to see you up in this hood!


Happy Happy Birthday!


Club 27

Seriously. My birthday is finally here.

That means the whole calender year is nearly complete. But for me it’s a beginning. A new chapter.

And since my 26th year was one of the strangest, and most surreal 365 days of my existence and tentatively titled “The Passion of Unicorn” … I’m expecting my next 365 to be even more exciting.

I’ve been sharing my experiences on this blog all year so this post is going to be like one of those clip shows from the Golden Girls… except it will have awesome new material too. Because that is what I do.

So let’s kick it off with the old.

Things I’ve Learned in my 26th year:

Crepes are fantastic. And in the right moment, they can be life changing.

That every one deserves to feel like their life is a romantic comedy, even if it only lasts for a few hours.

That everyone should “be prepared to be surprised”, because if you keep your eyes open… you can see that life is made of them.

That sometimes you should just try to realize in the future things won’t suck in the way they do now… but it isn’t going to be perfect.

That the things you want, aren’t always what you need or get… but I will never settle for anything that is less than wonderful.

Some people in the world really just like you for who you are. And I send them my most sincere thank you’s.

There is no shame in telling people to “Wang Chung tonight” especially if you are sincere about these wishes.

Sometimes a churro makes everything better.

My optomistrist is right, I should have a tv show. Everyone would have died of anticipation during my sweeps month.

Even though loved ones have great intentions… no one but you, knows what is best for you.

Talk to strangers. Because sometimes awesome things happen. This is a shout-out to all my lovely blog readers who I have never met in real life but feel an affinity for!

And if there was a narrator to my life, it would be Drew Barrymore.

Things I will do in the next year:

Buy more red lipstick. I’m so tired of people trying to drag it down. I like it and it likes me. And I don’t care what dudes say about it.

Enjoy my girliness with reckless abandon. I’m 27 and I bought sparkly diamond mascara. #dealwithit

Finish up my new doodle store! Preview notice, it’s going to be called the “Viciously Sweet Shop” and it may be candy themed. Take that, Katy Perry.

Kick back and draw. Work is stressful enough, turning it into silly doodles ALWAYS makes it better

Blast through my ARE’s. Boy have I been procrastinating on those. I need to get my booty back in gear and get it done with.

Maybe the masters… I should probably add that to the list too. I mean if it’s out there… maybe I’ll do it.

Take more dance classes. I stopped doing them because I thought they were “uncool” during my teen years. Well teen Lauren was wrong… I love them, they are the best way to get out energy. And also the weirder the better. I like telling people that I Tahitian dance, and I love dancing around my office. And I think more dancing could help my confidence when I go out to places. Any suggestions of what kind?

Learn how to play the songs I love on Ukulele. I will then pull out said ukulele from my trunk and surprise serenade people.

Have a wonderful Lauren Birthday weekend!


At least there will be cake

Tomorrow is my birthday and I did not make the deadline in my Blergsday miracle.

I have to show up and work… like a grown up. Instead of staying home and chillaxing in my jammy jams until I hit the town with Christine.

At least there will be cake!

It is okay. I have been promised cake, and everyone likes promises that are made with frosting.

Make me sweet sweet promises

So it’s all really good news if you think about it!


It’s the Best Day Ever! Part 1

Today is one of the best days ever! It is both of my BFF”s birthdays in ONE GLORIOUS 24 HOUR PERIOD!

So as one can imagine, I’m about as excited as a hungry Panda in a bamboo forest!

In this special 2 part post I will celebrate Southern California’s Most Treasured Dip Associate… Christine!

Let me share with you 10 amazing things about Christine so you can appreciate her the way I do.

1. This girl has no qualms in partaking in incredible levels of childish merrymaking with me. We take pictures picking Liam Neeson’s nose… take trips to the .99 store to buy props for everyday lives… and have an on going word game that has lasted a good 10 years (and now has it’s own book.)

2. She has a silver sequined promise beret that matches my gold sequined promise beret! (Our promise is to be awesome!)

3. Christine has an apartment on top of a hill, that has mustaches over the doorways.

4. She isn’t afraid of scary movies… in fact she almost never notices the scary things.

5. She has a healthy fear of left turns in Downtown L.A. (but who doesn’t.)

6. She has the ability to make really big crazy eyes! Which I am really envious of this because my eyes are wicked tiny and crazy.

7. Christine has this fantasy that we should all be in a Bollywood movie, someday I will make this happen for her.

8. She has eaten at all the Senor Fish restaurant locations!

9. She will at a drop of a bangle bracelet threaten people who are not nice to me!

10. She is a secret swash buckler, and has this fantastic umbrella sword. I like to think she uses it to fight crime in her spare time.

Thank you for being awesome Christine! I hope you have the best birthday a girl could ask for, and the best year to follow!

♥ & Lollipops,


26 Years of Lauren

So I must say that I had a supremely awesome birthday.
Besides the ruin of my most trustworthy computer….
And after 26 awesome years on this planet, I feel that I am extremely lucky person with only a year of awesome ahead of me.


And here are some things that I am so going to do this very year:

– Laugh 30% more. Because laughing feels good… But, can the world handle it?
– Take more dancing classes because, I can dance if I want to.
– Learn how to send smoke signals… to Isabel.
– Collect Flags of the world and give them to Christine as Presents.
– Learn the Capitols of all the countries in the world.
– Say “yes” to more things that sound fun.
– Travel more so I can use my cute Pan Am Bag.
– Learn French. So I can travel to Europe and not use my limited and all together rarely used Spanish.
Yeah, I took Spanish in High School because it was easy and I wanted to learn how to say “vest” in Spanish… it’s “chaleco” btw
– Complete my ARE tests. (daunting)
– Find a great assortment of Songs I can put Jimmy’s name into and sing them to Jimmy, when he doesn’t want me to.
– Finish the end of lists better


Also this post is a  Thank you to all my friends who make all the times I have the best! And all of the people who come here to look at my doodles and how I make fun of myself and my coworkers!


Happy Birthday Billy Corgan

Today Jimmy told me that it’s Billy Corgan’s birthday. And since he is like my favorite tall, white pasty, and bald musician… I would love to celebrate it!

Despite all his rage he still will totally age.



I know you are… but what am I?

I’m unusually happy this morning because of this little guy:

All things about Paul Rubben’s aside. Peewee Herman was one of my favorite childhood characters. I had that talking doll, and I took it everywhere with me even to ballet class.

Last night at Midnight MTV2 was playing “Peewee’s Big Adventure,” and so I watched it… and couldn’t stop laughing, nor could I wake up for work, but I digress.

My family has decided to take me to see him for my birthday… but due to the Isabel Stare-a-thon 2009 Pee Wee has postponed his shows until January 2010. It’s cool, I’m still going to see him… but post birthday!

But whilst I wait I have one request…
