Hi, I’m the weird girl!

I have been procrastinating on writing my speech for my sister’s wedding. As her maid of honor , and only person in her wedding party…Yes, that is right I am the party!

Back to my speech procrastinating… My dad has had his speech written for weeks. And as my mother lovingly threatened that she wants to hear this speech before I tell everyone at the reception that me and my sister like to watch Maury Povich’s “Baby Daddy” episodes, talk with  Jennifer Lopez accent when we want to make fun of each other, and enjoy wrapping our hair around our face to pretend to have a mustache… but then again who doesn’t do that stuff?

Last night I was stressing about the words I would say to wish my sister well. And then as I started to write them my mother told me this golden nugget:

“Remember not every one gets your humor.”


I just would like to say that the time for weird girls is upon us. Actually, it’s also cool for the gents too… I mean Tina Fey, Gonzo the Muppet, Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon, Zooey Deschanel, Margaret Thatcher… The world is crazy for those goobers.

Also, thanks mom you always know what to say.


The 90’s fantasy today

I’ve been in a 90s mood for a while, a lot of this is solved by listening to that Pandora 90s station that brings my 90s dreams to a reality. But the dangerous thing is now I’m going around town singing songs like “Lovefool” and “Poison,” poorly.

I wish I were listening to it on a crisp new walkman…

Hey Jimmy… don’t you wish you were listening to Natalie Imbruglia right now?

The Happy Gauge

Christine and I get to see Tina Fey and Steve Martin today at Club Nokia… I’m so excited I mostly finished this doodle:

If I got any happier I would be running down the hall screaming!

Pardon me… I think I’m going to go to the hallway now.


Lauren’s Personal Thoughts w/ Lauren

Okay I know that there is some sort of respect and well wishing that must be sent to the people experiencing incredible devastation 5,000 miles from here.
And of course I send them well wishes, prayers, and safety!

But now to my more localized thoughts. Yes I have real thoughts! And here they are!

* I am happy that I did not give up Tina Fey related media for Lent, because Christine and I are going to see her (AND STEVE MARTIN) in LA next month. I could pass out for the joy that some of my dreams are actually ALIVE!

Seriously, and they aren't even musicians!

* I have mixed feelings about violence towards the Dab… who would have had to remove the heel of my shoe from his face if I had missed a night with Tina Fey and Steve Martin. And because I feel like I still may hit him, just because.

In his rostro y mas.

* I am really excited to see Isabel this weekend because witnessing her in real life is so much better than textually online.

*I can’t believe I made it through this week without cursing at people during work. (They totally deserve it) Not Amber though :) Also you should never make a girl mad who can photoshop with reckless abandon!


I am really sad that I never posted folkerico… which is Eric photoshopped on a woman folklorico dancer… if you couldn’t figure it out, shame on me for being nice.

*Also I would like everyone to know that you can say whatever you like about me, and you don’t have to like me or anything of the sort. But personally, I think I’m pretty rad (and I think you know it too):

Have a nice weekend and be safe and delicious!
