And this week I heard the best news I have heard in a long time. My friend the astonishing, marvelous, and phenomenal-on-her-way-to-becoming-a-doctor, Isabel is ENGAGED! And she’s getting married to David, who is equally as wonderful as her (it’s a really hard contest to enter though. I mean, I could write adjectives about Isabel’s awesomeness until I pass out from giggling).
Just in case for some of the readers who need a reminder of David…remember him as my captive studio audience? Well now that Isabel and David are going to be a unified front, I will have 2 people in my designated audience! That for all you math wizards is double. I have double the fans now:
So basically the day they get married is going to be one of the best days of the year besides Leif Erikson Day and the Isabel Stare-a-thon. I really hope they get married during Nov. 2oth to December 20th as that is the time I have made up a month-long holiday about Isabel. It’s basically begging to have your wedding betwixt it!
So finally, and simply… Congratulations. I hope you have so many years of incredible joy and the most fun two people have ever had in the history of people having fun! Remember everyday can be the best day you’ve ever had.
Whether you are a new fan of the stare-a-thon, or an old staring buddy we here at Viciously Sweet thank you for enjoying a month dedicated to staring at Isabel!
Now that the time has come to dismantle our newly purchased periscopes I can only tell you one thing..
I hope you bought that convenient periscope holder so you can store it until the next Stare-a-thon:
Remember you will be judged by other starers for improper periscopes use…You will be scoffed at by the throngs of starers who will say “Check out that periscopes current condition” and then they will full-heartedly guffaw at you, and then you will be all embarrassed and you will have to stare at home online by yourself… and not with the people.
Also remember there is also a closing ceremony next Monday.
I don’t get to say that I am the founder of many things. I mean I could say I’m the founder of Southern Canada, but that hasn’t happened yet. I could also say I created KFC, but yet again that is a lie. And I am super bad at telling the fibs.
What I can say is that 4 years ago I started a little tiny holiday that was supposed to celebrate my friend Isabel. For the following reasons:
1. She’s really awesome
2. She’s is about 120 miles away and its a bit far when you work the 9-5 and school 24/7
3. I like staring at things, and being in architecture school I didn’t get to see my pals for quite a long time.
So when I graduated I set a goal to “see” my friends, and at the same time create a holiday to celebrate her awesomeness.. So I got this brilliant idea to stare…. directly at Isabel, and I much like her truest love Clay Aiken I never want to stop looking at her.
Now we take a month to take in Isabel. And it’s a beautiful thing.
Also I hope everyone who is staring this year is enjoying their periscopes.
I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday. On this December 13th (7 days left, OMG) I bring to you a British fan of gazing at Isabel yes Declan McManus international jewel thief is an avid starer- I mean Elvis Costello, yes Elvis Costello… he like to stare:
His Stare is True
Have a funtastic stare day! I’m working on a beautiful post!
It’s that magical time of the day where I need to quote my ever so professional co-worker. Sadly, the Professional Quote of the Day has not been in daily observance due to the importance of the Isabel Stare-A-thon 2011.
Frankly, I cannot take my eyes off of my periscope pointed San Diego way to get a steady flow of professional quotes a happening this holiday season.
But today is different. Today is a quote I have been saving for a special occasion, and this cold rainy afternoon is that very occasion. So without further ado I present to you a Professional Christmas Quote:
Don’t you love the joy of Eric’s professional words in glittery Christmas text?
Now I would be the first person to tell you I know not much about science… All I remember from my brief exposure to this field is usually marred by teachers who inspired me to sit in a corner and doodle. (By the way thanks super bad teachers, I get paid money to draw now.)
Anyhoo, besides starting small fires in chemistry class, and the fact that the Galapagos Islands exist I have no real scientific knowledge*.
But you know who does love science? Isabel… yes, the one we stare at. She really does, in fact if science were a real life person she’d marry him.
And that brings us to this sciency Isabel stare-a-thon picture:
So go, tell all your friends about this site, and science. Because both things are super awesome… and KEEP STARING!
*Maybe I know more science than this, but then again… maybe not.
