Little Kid: Hello?
Me: Hi, may I please speak to Mr. Smith?
Little Kid: uh-huh
Mrs Smith: Hello?
Me: Err...hi. Mr Smith? Mr Smith please?
Me: No, could I please speak to Mr Smith? Mr Smith? Mr....Peter! Peter Smith, please?
Mrs: He's not here right now.
Wow. So I left a message with his wife & he called me back like 10 seconds later. It was so humiliating. I honestly hate talking on the phone with an intense passion. After that someone else called & I agreed to babysit for their kids on New Year's Eve. You see, I've never really got the big deal with New Years....it's just a date change. Besides, until I'm old enough to legally drink, I have no reason to celebrate it. Humbug.

Part two of this series will be coming soon, along with a new series of my favourite male models.

1. Listen to Owl City's 'The Christmas Song'
2. Watch those really old, politically incorrect Christmas cartoons from the '30s-'50s while making fudge, decorating the tree, or icing cookies.
3. Wear a ridiculously ugly (Christmas) sweater.
4. If you're fortunate enough to get snow (like me!) go sledding with all of your friends, then go home and make hot chocolate.
5. Read 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens - a very short, lovely book, which is a classic.
6. Watch any selection of Chloe approved Christmas movies from the following list: Love Actually, Eloise at Christmastime, Home Alone, Jingle All the Way, The Santa Clause, Elf, It's a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story
7. Attend the Christmas Eve service at church and sing all the songs as loud as you can.
I really do want everyone who celebrates to enjoy this time of year! We always get caught up with the commercial side of it. I'm not saying that some of those movies aren't in support of a commercial Christmas, but you don't need presents and you don't need to believe in Santa Claus to have a good Christmas. I've had absolutely dreadful Christmases for the last 4 years, since my grandmother died, and this year I'm all caught up in the happiness & I truly hope everyone else can be as well.
*sigh* Well that was odd for me to lecture everyone on religion and holidays, but....right. I made a Flickr account & have some of my photography up! Click here to view my profile or here to view my photostream! I'll be updating again soon. It's weird, because everyone is taking a blogging break for the holidays & I just have all these ideas for blogs......

It's cold here! The past week has been 16 degrees and below. Right now there are pretty pretty snowflakes falling all around. Snow is glorious. I watched 4 Christmas movies in the last 24 hours (Elf, The Santa Clause, Eloise at Christmastime, & Surviving Christmas). I love when we have White Christmases. It's only right.
Christmas is coming very soon! I don't have a wishlist. I don't really want anything. I like surprises & consider myself someone who's fairly easy to buy for. I still have a few people to buy for, though. That's stressful.
I'll be posting again very soon. This was my first 'fashion' oritented post in a while, and it still wasn't very in depth. I'll be doing a post about movies soon.
p.s. I got my ticket for the Owl City concert! Ahhh! That's so exciting.

Also, today I added 20-some Christmas movies to my Blockbuster Online queue. I'm not quite into the spirit yet, so I figured some movies would cheer me up. It snowed a few inches this morning, so all I need is some sledding, hot chocolate, and Christmas movies! What are some of your favourites?
I'll leave this blog with a video from Delay's single (off their newest album, Everything's the Rush). I sort of love this song and it's all cheerful and nice. Come on, who isn't cheered up by cheerleaders running around with cardboard boxes?

2. Sneezed all over my mirror. After reflecting on the gross-ness of not cleaning the keyboard, I cleaned the mirror.
5. Employed my favourite French phrase "hyper cool" to describe the snow. It smells so lovely & looks very pretty out....
-Hours spent playing the Sims 2: a pathetic & large number (addictive!)

On another note, I'm trying to find some spandex leggings because those are amazing & I would sort of like some. I think I could be banished from Minnesota for ever wearing them, though. Also, I haven't had a job in a while & the holidays are coming up & I'm major broke so I basically have no money to spend....on leggings or the dress. Life has tendencies to be a fiasco. I think it's time to sell some stuff on eBay. Like that old Game Boy I have tucked away in my basement somewhere.

Jasper's one face expression
Edward climbing up the tree with Bella on his back. And then flying from tree to tree
Jacob Black's hair
Edward Cullen's glittery skin
When Bella walks in front of the fan and Edward goes all funny
Bella's fantasy of the Edward/Bella vampire porno
The flashback when the Cullens are dressed up like explorers in the jungle
The flashback when Carlisle is sucking Edward's blood (Eddy's face)
The entire baseball scene
When they accidentally touch hands and Bella freaks out
Bella's writhing on the floor at the ballet studio sounding like a dying pig
The beginning when Eddy is hunting the little deer
Victoria at prom
Bella & Edwards face expressions

2. I finished reading The Catcher in the Rye, which I adore, but kept realizing how similar Holden is to this character named Soren in a novel I'm writing. In fact, during class discussions I would be like "and S-Sor-S....uhhhhh...S-...gosh, what's his......Holden". It was very embarassing and made me feel like one of those spacey girls who are so far out there.
3. What is the current Yen to American dollar exchange rate?
4. I might go see Twilight tomorrow. I just don't really want to look like one of those obsessed fans who think it's the greatest book ever written. But I am curious. I very much liked the plot of the book, but the writing killed me. And so did the other 3 parts of the series.
5. My entire life has suddenly become focused on getting into this very prestigious boarding school I mentioned in my last blog. So please excuse me while I go fill out the insane amount of applications, schedule an interview, and both hand write & type two seperate essays.....just to even be considered as part of the 20% of applicants who are accepted. Good bye.

I went vintage shopping with my friends yesterday. All the shops are mega expensive & it really bugs me. I found this little sports jacket in the men's section that was like heaven & fit perfectly. Except it was $60! Who the heck has $60 to spend on a ragged little used jacket?? 'Twas true insanity.

At last America did something right.
....though only for a brief moment.
In California, over 11,000 gay married couples are no longer considered married because Prop 8 was passed, a proposition that bans gay marriage in the state. Gay marriage was made legal only last May.
In Florida, a ban on gay marriage passed with 62% approval.
In Arizona, a ban on gay marriage was passed with 56% approval.
In Arkansas, a ban on same sex couples adopting or fostering children passed with 57% approval. How disgusting.
I usually don't pull out the bible verses, but since I feel strongly about this issue & it's directly connected with religion, I feel it's important to back it up with religion. I apologize to those who are not religious & do not want to hear the words of God.

I love cloche hats, especially this one! The feathers are amazing with the blue. I have a cloche hat but it is only white. Of course I got it vintage, so maybe an actual flapper once wore it which could be a plus, depending on how you look at it. Anyways, maybe this will be the next thing I buy? Just kidding. It' $134.
Hi, look at how cool this trench is! I don't have much to say actually. It's just very classy & reminds me of Amelia Earhart (who I used to have an unexplainable obsession with....I suppose because she represented woman power. I'm so not a feminist, though). These knee socks have bicycles on them! How amazing! I love the green, too, for some reason...even though I typically hate the colour green. I've been eyeing these for so long.
ModCloth has brilliant tights & shoes, too. They used to have these killer Le Petit Prince flats. I dreamed about those at night. Unfortunately they didn't come for my size 4 feet. Their blog ModLife also can be fairly interesting. They did a few segments on how to tie different types of scarves, once. Aw man, I gotta go do homework and cheer on Barack & Al Franken. I promise my blog will get more interesting in the future.

It radiates Screech-ness.
My sweater >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> your sweater
Actually, Screech is jealous of my sweater.
Your sweater wishes it was as cool as my sweater.
I'm done bragging about my sweater. It's in the wash right now.

My friend & I were supposed to go thrifting today, though she isn't answering her phone. Blah. However, we have a break in school coming up in a few days & I'm going shopping to the Mall of America with my mum. I'm also going to try to persuade some friends to go vintage shopping with me to all the little clothes stores along University Avenue.
I'm in this horrible little class at school called "French Culture" which is supposed to be about the French & their culture. So far I've learned nothing of substance. However, we spent the last two days learning about french cheese. I honestly never knew there were so many rules about cheese making & eating & cutting. I spent most of my time learning about Brie. The reading mentioned something about having a "cheese party" with friends, so now my friend Nathan & I have plans for a cheese party. Including berets, Orangina, and croissants. We're very excited.

It's really cold and rainy out today. Minnesota. So instead of attempting to be fashionable, I've simply decided to dress weather-&-church-&-study appropriate. On another note, I've decided that my prom experience won't be complete unless they play "If You Leave" by Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark. Uhm yeah, as in the song they play in Pretty in Pink when she goes to prom.
Next weekend I have a few jeans & tee shirt DIY projects set up which I'll post about later. In two weeks I'm going shopping with my mum. And right now I'm going to go watch a movie and work on this drawing that I've been working on for 3 weeks. It's a giant drawing of myself. I love it, besides the fact that it is of me (it had to be - school assignment).

Sometimes I wish I had a boyfriend so that I could buy him tons & tons of clothes. Oh wow, the life of a single girl. I wonder if I could pull off this Clark Kent shirt? ($30, Fred Flare - they got a ton of new stuff in, including some fierce winter knits!)
Has everyone seen the new penny? I'm so excited to go to Starbucks, get a hot chocolate, and have then give me a new penny. I've come to realize that I get most of my change from Starbucks.
I've been creating my fall/winter clothing-items-to-purchase list (including yellow rain boots, red plaid flannel shirt, & Doc Martens, not to mention a few uniform pieces for school) & my mum mentioned to me a pair of Doc Martens I had as a kid that I had totally forgotten about! They had lady bugs on them and were my absolute favourite boots - I wore them all the time! Apparently she found them for $15. Oh gosh, if only I could find a size 5 pair for that cheap. In other news, I found these killer pumps for $45 at DSW in a size 5.5 that fit like a glove. I almost cried when I had to leave the store without them.
ps. I've made note to myself to take more photos of my actual outfits for this blog, since it currently sucks & gets no readers.

Red skinny jeans. Black v-neck cardigan. Skinny black & white vertical striped tie. Black tie-up dress shoes with a huge white stripe. I'm going to faint, his outfit is so perfect.
Also, just to plug his music: Click here
ps. you might remember Liam from movies like 'A Series of Unfortunate Events', 'Sweet November', 'Stepmom', or 'Road to Perdition'

I love her dress! The wrap-body and black skirt with a bit of a pouf. But it should be so much longer. Taylor always wears short dresses, I know, but this is just too much for me. Plus, she's so skinny! There were some very disturbing side shots of her where her back and shoulders were quite literally skin stretched over bones. Quickly losing respect for Taylor, sorry kid.
Saturday, August 30, 2008
So, ignoring the fact that I was just wearing skinny jeans, a Hurley beater, & my kick ass blue Nikes, I ask what the hecccckkkk? I'm sorry but for serious, what is happening? I felt sick after a while just seeing all these girls dressed exactly the same. And let me just say that not all of them could pull the short shorts off well. And the idea of wearing flip flops to the nasty old state fair is sickening.
Finally this adorable girl skipped by in beaten converse, skinny skinny jeans and a beater (very much like I was wearing, but she looked better). But the most fetching part of her outfit was that she had a bandana in her hair, like a funky headband. That just looked way to stellar for words and I must now pull out my random blue bandana & figure out how she did that.
On another note, school starts in a matter of days and summer has finally decided to start heating up now, right in time for 100-some kids to pack together into a hallway wearing these hugely thick, scratchy polo shirts. Thanks old man summer, way to go. Anyways, just needed to mini-vent about the state fair & the grossness of our uniform shirts in the heat. Lets hope for fall & the cute clothes that come with it!

1. Her hair: She looks bloody gorgeous with it parted to the side. The middle part just makes your head look funky.
2. Her makeup: Drop all that dark eye shadow, please! Lighten up on the foundation and SMILE. Black nail polish can add a funky-rocker edge, but with this particular outfit it's like, blaaah.
3. The jewelry: With a sparkly top and all that black, HUGE diamond necklaces just look tacky and out of place. Replace with something smaller and more innocent.
4. The jacket: Okay, I'll admit that I like the jacket & the popped collar. Just not with that shirt or those pants.
5. The shirt: I like the shirt, too, just not with the jacket or those pants. I've always had a thing for sequins.
6. The...pants?: weird, stretchy, skinny....pants? They're like ski pants. I am utterly confused.
7. The shoes: complete the tackiness of this outfit.
Overall, it's like those 5th graders when they go through the awkward goth phase, except she looks like an old woman while doing it. This outfit makes me want to gag. I will just push it out of my mind and pretend that Taylor still has excellent taste.

Anyways, so I love suspenders with simple outfits & I was finally able to break out the plaid $5 jacket from H&M because I was finally wearing something plain. Now I just need suspenders that fit. Yeah, those are working for me thanks to safety pins, but in the back the criss-cross is between my shoulder blades. stretchy.
In other news I cannot wait for fall. No, not because of uniforms (die), but because I can finally break out the jackets & blazers, cozy hats, and -drum roll- my new Steve Madden riding boots! They are very similar to wearing a dead cow strapped around your feet, but are absolutely gorgeous & were on sale....oh plus, the size 6 fit my size 4 feet wonderfully. =D
