the 29th

22 Nov

It totally happened.

I turned 29. And it was good.

                                        29 and feeling strangely fine

I have never really feared aging… maybe because I feel happy about pretty much everyday.

And apparently everyone at work thought I turned 23… so super bonus?

I got treated very kindly by my new coworkers and friends and…. really just had a great time.

I usually use this post to reflect on the last 12 months and set a few new goals… which I will happily do if you continue to read on

Things I learned at 28:

♥ That I’m not all together that weird.  I was made to think that most people aren’t terribly creative or prone to fantasy over the years… and I have met a few people this year that have shown me that this is not the case. And that it’s okay to be any which way you are.

♥That sometimes a change will do you good. I may not have chosen all the changes that have happened this year… but all in all they have been the best things that have happened to me! Woot woot– higher quality of life–

♥That I’m a good worker. The first time I was ever eligible for a review and it… went really well.

be the Leslie Knope of what you do

♥ That giving people a chance can be a great thing and lead to great relationships… it can also get you stalked. Both have happened this year.

♥That engineers are very awkward… but also so, so adorable.

♥That it’s okay to be a little more on the flashy side of life.

Bernadette Peters is the best!

♥That sometimes space away from certain people, is what you need more than anything. Because they are making you stall in the things you want to get done.

Not anymore!

♥Some times nothing beats good friends, and cheesecake.

The "Golden Girls" Drinking Game Is Something You Need To Play Right Now

♥That you will do so many things for people who are important to you… including getting lost in the Hollywood Hills. And it’s nice to get to do those things

♥ And that Paul McCartney can still really perform.

Things I will do this year:

♥Start a business that involves my art for real this time. I have seen so many people who do this, at my new job… and I want to be more like them!

♥Participate in all the things I can. Except for really boring stuff, that I still won’t do

♥Create the costume my doodle is wearing for Halloween. It comes from this music video which is one of my favorites:

I want to be dressed like this dreamy 22nd century rooster

♥Go to Spain, I have the money to have a very nice vacation… and that will never be enough money to buy a house in California.

And with that I thank you for reading this and looking at my silly doodles. Here’s to a super wonderful year.

Isabel Stare-a-thon: gawking Brandon

11 Dec

Brandon Flowers the king of chapped lips. Likes to stare at Isabel really, really closely. Don’t turn behind you Isabel because he’s there…. Watching. He could even be disguised as that love sac in your living room.

He will stare until the killers make a new album. he's hardcore like that.

Flowers for Pomona

11 Nov

This is not exactly the flowers we went to see. But I had to clarify this, as this does exist in Pomona

Christine and I took a stroll to the fox theatre in Pomona… to see Brandon Flowers on Tuesday night.

Christine with strolling action

On our first attempt to gain entrance to the music venue I encountered the most vengeful of security guards who told us we had to throw away our lipgloss. Now, I had some fancy lipgloss with me, that I have become accustom to and had to be returned to the car… Electric pink gloss me and you forever.

This Lip Gloss is quarantined...

(I have since concoted a theory that Brandon Flowers has a lipgloss phobia and thought he would surely be glossed by some rogue hoochies.)

This may be true.

The show started with the magically accented Fran Healy.

You remember him from this:

He was awesome. During his set he played a song called “Sing Me to Sleep” which is a duet. He requested we imagine him having a Victor/ Victoria look… I could have helped him if I had been allowed my lipgloss. He was so awesome Christine bought his cd. (Which everyone should buy!)

And he finished his set with this song from Travis. Which is one of my personal fav’s.

While Mr. Flowers set was being unveiled the set change music was awesome. And included this song, which I sang with reckless abandon:

So fi-i-ine. We were in a more than thrilled mood. And then the hoochies came. Dressed like J-lo trannies from a 50 cent video, they loomed behind us… brushing us with their fingers hair and what not. All over our back regions. Screaming so loud you would have thought they shot Puffy.

I really though they were at the wrong concert.

Someone in this picture looks like a tranny J-lo. This person is not Christine nor me.

Then Brandon Appeared on stage kind of looking like the brawny man. He was fabulous. He sang and jerked around on the stage like we were at some fabulous new wave 1980s concert.

He could sell me paper towels anytime...

We also saw a girl from high school at the concert who recognized me in the darkness of the theater. I am mad recognizable.
The last song Brandon played left me in a conundrum because he played “when you were young” which has a line about someone not looking anything like Jesus…. but look at the guy next to Brandon he kind of looks like Jesus….

On our way to our car, we stopped an waited for Brandon. Christine got away and I was smushed into the crowd and briefly into Brandon himself. He has great skin, btw. It was crazy. Also I have this nice bruise to have as a keepsake….

pressed flowers

Awesome sauce.

Oh Fuse, I am in Misery

12 Jul

So I have been without my Fuse TV for 12 days now and I feel like I’m falling so far away from current music videos, or entertainment that fits my attention span.

So I either have to find them online or listen to Jimmy tell me about them.

Today I feel I must discuss 2 videos one described to me by Jimmy and one witnessed on Youtube, by 2 very different artists that kinda look similar:

So Jimmy super does not like this music video for “Misery” by Maroon 5. He told me it was 4 minutes of Adam Levine be all up, over and about some girl. SO, it’s a typical Maroon 5 video:

I am cool with this, and I think as always the song is catchy as hell. I also like that he is being beaten up in the streets of LA by some girl who looks like she way made up by Amy Winehouse. Ooooh also she likes knives, stabs his hand and also beats him senseless! I’m not so offended by this.

 On a side note: I am just not so cool with Adam Levine grinding and staring at me, it’s happened before when I had really good seats to a Maroon 5 concert, and I don’t ever want to be that close to him ever again.

The next music video is “Crossfire” by Killers-less Brandon Flowers (whose solo album is lusciously titled “Flamingos”). I do like the song and I do like the Flowers as previously stated about 20 times in this blog…but why is he in these predicaments? And why does Charlize Theron have so much time to rescue him? Why is he so happy to be in a straightjacket? Why is he not in this costume:

Eh, I still enjoy it.

10 things that I’ve thought of today w/ Lauren

31 Mar

1. Is the “Wedding Singer” the best movie ever?

Answer: To me it may just be, I almost failed a film class when I said it was my favorite film. Because the teacher looked at me and said she’d assume I liked Adam Sandler films. Although it was more than a diss on her part, I do like Adam Sandler and took this as a compliment.

Also it may be the best film because of classic moments like this:

and finally,

2. Mr Belvedere. He’s always made me wish I had a curmudgeonly servant with a British accent. And…eww did anyone really like Kevin Owens?

3. Will I photobooth with Christine when we celebrate her and Isabel’s birthday? And does Isabel approve of us celebrating her birthday if she’s in San Diego? And when is a great time to go harrass Isabel in this San Diego?

4. This song. Because it’s not to late for “that”. And boy do I love non-specifics.

5. Why is it so cold and not raining? I was outside today and there was wind like a monsoon was upon me and then…… nothing.

Seriously thanks weather men. I could be wearing much cuter shoes!!!

6. Did my cat do something super heinous and bad today? In other news does anyone want a slightly used cat? He’s beige and has a bowtie for fancy occasions.

7. Why don’t I get glamour naps at work?

8. Is my niece like the cutest thing? I adore her absolute blondeness!

9. Will I ever make another marathon of Eric and the ladies? Will this upset Eric?

Answer: YES and YES!

10.  Why doesn’t Starbucks advertise like this? I mean seriously Jason Sudeikis looks real good, and he’s drinking a Starbucks beverage.

On a sad note this is him as Floyd DeBarber… getting married to some yoga weirdo.

That’s pretty much it.

LAUREN OUT!

Break time w/ the Killers

24 Dec

I am so glad that I don’t have to go back to work until next year!

To celebrate this I would like to share this video of the Killers:

I will be singing this all day while I wear my pajamas.

The Spaceman says everbody look down…

8 Oct

It’s been weeks since I have talked about the Spaceman.

Which is, I’m so sorry Kanye the best video of the 2009.

So I think it would only be better If I doodled the Spaceman in the theme of Jimmy:

The Star maker says “it ain’t so bad.”
