Magically Delicious

4 Nov

On this Monday I would like to share something I have thought of.

Even in this sometimes dreary little world… We all kind of have magical powers.

Like moms seem to know everything you are up to… even in my ye olden 20s it’s totally true… My mom knows I’m pretty much always goofing off on the internet.

Thon seems to know how to fix anything technological while having hair identical to Jim Halpert.

My brother can create intricate and fantastic little figurines when he’s not surveying the majestic north of  Alaska.

Amber is like a witch doctor of vitamins she has like an entire pharmacy in her purse.

Christine may know everything about all seasonings and wii games (this has come in handy many times).

Isabel makes tiny universes in petri dishes on a regular basis.

Nancy has this imagination that is out of this world.

My sister has the ability to accessorize like mad woman (this is really a gift.)

 

I mean we aren’t the Hulk or anything… but it’s all pretty cool when you think about it.

And if you were wondering about me, I think my ability to doodle would be my super power…

imagination makes everything awesome.

… but I would switch it with the ability to fly or teleport in a heartbeat.

Happy Monday

2013 is going to be Awesome

2 Jan

So I’m back at work.

I’m sorta reeling from the sad knowledge that I have to sit for 8 hours a day again, and for my inability to wear yoga clothes to work… as I spent several days in the last week sporting some of the most bad-ass pajamas you can imagine. Penguins with popcorn, cats with little hats, neon green and gray yoga pants that would make David Lee Roth a little jealous. I’m all class in the jammy jamz department! I’m also realizing that I will not have any time out of my work confines until I vacation at the end of the year.

AT THE END OF THE YEAR.

That sounds so far away now.

Anyways… back to me in my cubicle. Everyone is talking about stuff as people in offices do. Apparently we’re moving locations in March. And actually, I’m getting a window… Imagine that, a window for little Ole’ Me! Back to the windowless rectangle I work in… some professional is doing something, and of course there is always someone trying to gossip. Is it sad that I’m used to this as my existence?

Well I’m just going to get past all of this, this year. And I will get through it with wit, smiles and far far less tears than last year. This is not the first time I will admit to get through my days I rely extensively on my imagination, and I promise myself this year that when things get ugly around me I’m going to take to my imagination and make something good instead of getting upset. And the silver lining in all of this is when I imagine things maybe I can make somebody have a giggle or two at my doodles. With that I present today’s doodles:

Cubicle thought time with Lauren is brought to you by Lauren’s crazy brain!

And then maybe someone else will ponder the current actions of Stevie Nicks. Which will start a whirlwind Stevie Nicks revolution and then people will be dressing like her… the mall will be covered in sparkly black shrouds, and then everyone will hate and simultaneously love Lindsey Buckingham, and we will all have sweet sweet necklaces:

I have been thinking about Stevie Nick’s a lot lately. Anyone else want to see Fleetwood Mac this summer? Anyone else really love the song “Rhiannon” or “Go Your Own Way?” They are personal favorites.

And then maybe someone will be driving and will smile at a stranger (and totally make their day) because their mind is being regaled by the thought of a sheep in Alpaca wooly sweaters:

This sheep is so handsome… He’s practically the George Clooney of the sheep community.

And everyone who reads this blog, thank you. I hope your new year is incredibly wonderful… and full of great and unusual thoughts and experiences. If you have some you need to share. Just drop them here. I am a recycling center for weird things.

Also all this weird I just recorded here reminds me of a truly fabulous quote:

Literary Cats

6 Jun

Sometimes I have dreams. Sometimes those dreams are scary bird men. Sometimes they are about surprise meatloaf.

I realize my thoughts are more than a little in the clouds. (And I must say I hope my thoughts are in the clouds Keanu Reeves walks in, he’s dreamy.)

Today my thoughts are not any different. I had this thought about my cats being like the Grimm Brothers of the cat world. They write moralistic stories about cats and the world they live in… which is my house.

You may not know this but they also wrote the story of “The Little Mercat” but Hans Kitty Anderson is always trying to make claim on it.

I’m going to go celebrate my Mom’s birthday now.

In its Natural Habitat

6 Sep

There are many dangerous creatures online.

From the Encyclopedia of Internet Dangers I give to you:


He lures you on to social networks to… well, bite your face off. When you are all alone online and all up on the stalking of your web buddies, he strikes with vengeance leaving nothing behind besides your keyboard mouse (they give him heartburn.) Then he surfs back online to find his next victim.

Next time you hear a crunch when you are typing it could be the social piranha claiming his next victim.
