the 29th

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.

Oh Fuse, I am in Misery

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.

Meet Me in Outer Space…

I was watching the Discovery Channels documentary on the universe. Which I found really interesting, because spacey things are interesting. And I realized that unlike many other children, I’ve never dreamed of being an astronaut.

But, I’ve always liked futuristic things.

Like the house of the future:

This Incubus song:

This Battlestar Galactica:

This futuristic family:

Buckminster Fuller:

Life on Mars:

But I discovered the real reason I’m not currently floating in the cosmos:

Totally Lame.

Halloween Oddity

I know Halloween is still really far away…

But I’ve been thinking about costumes… and I’m totally torn in  a Natalie Imruglia way…

here are my ideas:

1. Lady Gaga… because she’s super slick and I can wear triangles…

2. Fergie because I may want to be flossy flossy

3. Mary Tyler Moore… only if you’ll be Buddy Holly

4.David Bowie… however more like Ziggy Stardust

5. Julia Gulia… however I need Robbby Hart.

6. The Spaceman… you know you want to

7. Aunt Bee and her pickles

8. Molly Ringwald in this outfit:

Help Me out…

The Spaceman

I have a feeling the biggest halloween costume of the year is going to be Brandon Flowers Outfit from the music video “Spaceman.”

I have previously stated that I love that video.

AND more so I have commented on this more than rad costume. Which someday even I (a 5′ tall girl) would love to own.

I really think that it has everything to do with the shoulder pads. Or as we should call them… rad pads :)

But why I really think that This is going on is because I get at least 30 searches a week on this page of “brandon flowers spaceman”… or “brandon flowers spaceman costume”

 

which I find very awesome. I emplore you if you dress like this at any time PLEASE send me a picture! I will put them all over here.
