So lately i've been compiling things that I think are wonderful as of late:

  • working at michaels (minus the bitchy boss)
  • peach mango body spray
  • Saturday night fever (i love the 70s)
  • my fossil messenger bag
  • the new coldplay album
  • finding inspiration
  • the color purple (the color not the movie)
  • forever 21
  • house items from urban outfitters
  • a beautiful mess

And you? what're some of your favorite things at this moment?

the dark knoght

I totally can't wait til this movie comes out. But talking about it on the way to the concert one of art's friends says, "you already know what's gonna happen. The joker dies twice. " It's too soon. I'm still in mourning and refuse to believe that he's dead. But i am getting past that stage and probably into acceptance.


an introduction

So everytime that I look at this picture it reminds me of how much I love this boy. So this is Art, my boyfriend and we have somewhat of a history. Well, in high school his sister was one of my best friends and we both liked each other but because of our status with each other nobody did anything. We went on to have our respective boyfriends and girlfriends and never thought twice of it. We had a class together for summer school but I didn't realize that he was in it. Well this past February his sister invited me to her birthday party and he was there. We both got drunk and he was sitting in a room by himself so i went to go see what was going on with him when he told me that he liked me. That he's always liked me. All I remember saying to him was "why did it take you so long?" And we've been together ever since. So I've known him since the latter part of 1999. We live together right now and we know that we want to get married. Yet we also know that right now is not the ideal time. That we've both got some things to do but we do plan to be together. And now that we know that I hope things work for the best.

So as I was flipping through the TV channels to see if anything decent was on at 7 in the morn I came across something that I never would have thought would be resurrected. I know some 80s things are back in like leg warmers, (almost) day-glo clothing and plastic jewelry but, NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK??????? Somebody please tell me what happened? When did they make a new single and for how long has it been playing on VH1? And has it been playing on the radio as well? I don't know. When it comes to mainstream radio music, I have no idea what's playing or who half of these people are now. But apparently there's also a devo 2.0??? People fill me in.

So I went to la plazita olvera today cos i've been going through cabin fever cos i've been in the house for an insane amount of time. So today i took some pictures. So this one is of an old fire box. It has instructions on how to use it. Quite simple actually. But whenever the key was turned it automatically set of a telegraph machine that typed out the location of the box near where the fire was. kinda crazy actually.


Meet Odie

Odie looks so innocent here but in reality...he's a stuffed animal killer. any stuffed animal that we get him, he'll tear apart in 3 days tops. There was an exception though it took him two weeks to tear up a stuffed dog. Odie is actually my boyfriends mom's dog. He's obviously a beagle but we call him a lemon becos his tail curls. he's about 2 or 3 years old but he's still a pup in our eyes. okay goodnight folks.



So I find myself watching alot of cartoons lately. Mostly from disney channel and cartoon network. But i found out that disney channel no longer shows 'dave the barbarian'. I LOVED that cartoon so much. I don't know why i'm compelled to watch cartoons again but it feels good. I feel like i'm 7/8 years old again. Today i woke up and started watching the old 'tom & jerry' cartoons. I'm also watching the cartoons that i used to watch when I was younger. 'darkwing duck', 'tales spin', 'chip & dale's rescue rangers'. I didn't even know that they still played them. I'm in heaven.

So we've been together for 4 months now. It doesn't seem like it though. It seems shorter than that. ahh yesss......

As for school the semester finished yesterday so i have to wait about a week to see what my grades are. Hopefully they're okay and that I won't have to retake any classes. Mr. Evans wants to get a few of us together during the summer so we can do stuff together like go on tours of other artists studios, go on museum trips and have drawing nights and the like. I'm up for it. I'm anxious to start actually, I need a good challenge and he thinks so as well. He says i'm cut from the cloth except that i'm starting to be a flake so i need to get out of it. . Wen thrifting today but i didn't get anything. I saw stuff that would be good for the apartment but art and I have an agreement to not buy anything for it until we actually get an apartment. Went to Urban Outfitters and saw so much amazing stuff that I think I might just furnish the house with nothing but. We actually got these really cute deer salt and pepper shakers. I'll post pictures as soon as i get them on my flickr. I've been alittle lazy about doing it.

The job hunt went well. I did end up getting a job at michaels and I'm getting so much inspiration from just being there and seeing what other people are buying that it makes me want to try other things. I've been wanting to get back into embroidering. I remember doing it with my grandma when I was younger but i've forgotten how to do it. unfortunately they have like a ga-gillion books on cross stitching and like two on embroidery so i'm trying to find some books on it also the same fabric that my grandma used to use. It was like tea napkins. (at least i think that's what they're called).

I guess for now this is good day. I'm trying to work on a banner for the blog beings that the current one has NO relevence whatsoever to the name. Buon di. <3 A
