Birthday Flowers

21 Jun

I was going to post something that had to due with my never ending cavalcade of life failures. But after I had lunch with a friend I realized it really isn’t so bad. I wouldn’t be who I am without failures, and there was no way I wouldn’t have tried.

It’s just one of those things… that just didn’t work out for Ol’ Laurie Lue

BUT!!!!

Then this morning I heard it was one of my fashion icons/ cosmic twin’s birthday!!!

And I live for Birthday’s…

Especially… Brandon Flowers!!!

Not only is he the lead singer of the “Killers”… but he also has a penchant for the Cure and wearing fashion while carving out some melodies of his own that have a special place in my soul.

Happy Birthday Spaceman

He also reminds me that I really need to get a gold lame leopard print tuxedo… just for funsies.

Happy Wednesday good people of the internet,

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.

Let it shine

11 Jul

I don’t really have a lot to write. But I have been missing posting things on this site like crazy.

Here is some word art I made while listening to the radio.

It was playing “Read My Mind” from the Killers and I wrote down the lyric “I don’t shine, if you don’t shine.”

It felt right. I mean so much of my happiness comes from leaving happiness other places, and hopefully sharing some joy along.

So I made it into a doodle.

That I hope makes you smile… just a little bit :)

I’m working on some other doodles too, that are less musical in nature. I hope I get to finish one soon.

And here’s the song that goes with it.

Happy Thursday!
