I ate a ton of icing while writing this. I'm so bad.

~I hate the new Scooby Doo. No, really. They've got "What's New Scooby Doo?" made in 2011, and the animation is SO not like the old one! I miss the old, fun, cartoony's like how they have Mickey Mouse all over the Disney channel, but he's in this funky computer animation. That is NOT Mickey Mouse. Gah, what a lie.

~So my bookstore closes on this upcoming Tuesday. I'm pretty bummed. I'm such a book person. I was meant to work at a bookstore.
Oh well!
I did get hired at the Yankee Candle store at our mall, though!! I'm pretty excited. I get an awesome discount ;)

~I finally saw Fantastic Mr. Fox. It was the creepiest thing. Ever. I'm pretty sure it was made for people who are hopped up on drugs.
The little fox was cute though. I really liked him.

~So yesterday, I read two disastrous books in one day. The first was called "Life as we Knew it" by Susan Beth Pfeiffer. In this book, an asteroid hits the moon and knocks it closer towards the earth, and ouila: disaster. Earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, the works. It was an okay book. It really made me think...Like, if something were to happen, like an electromagnetic pulse, where nothing electric would work, the Amish would be so well off!! They wouldn't even know the difference, they'd still be living in contentment. Plus, I now feel justified for my vast amount of books, because they shall provide me entertainment should the world ever begin to end. ;)
The second book was called "Fever 1793" by Laurie Halse Anderson. I read it in like, the 7th grade and loved it, and so I bought it at the last bookstore I worked at (2 years ago!) and finally read it yesterday...Gosh, it was kinda disturbing, really. It's about how yellow fever broke out in Philadelphia in the year of 1793, and thousands of people died, and about half of the city left to get away from the illness...I had horrid dreams all night. Then I woke up to an insane thunderstorm, which made me think of the first book...lovely things to read, really :)
(PS: weheartit is totally...i don't even know. Let's just say that in every picture of a girl reading that I found, the girl was brunette. No blondes! That just doesn't seem right. I am offended.)

~So we had my brother's open house at the middle school this past Tuesday, and I simply had to go since it's at a brand new middle school they just built to replace the old one (It's so wrong...we never got real heating and air conditioning!!!) Anyways, blech blech blech. I am NOT a school person. Not to say I don't like to learn...I do. But school and I are just not amigos! I was nauseous the entire time, ugh. It makes me shudder just to think about it. I'm so glad I'm done. At least for the foreseeable future, unless God decides I simply have to go to college. ;)

~Oh yeah, did I tell you my brother got married? He did :) It was cool. Her dress was outrageous! See the picture below There must've been at least 50 layers, and it took about 20 minutes to straighten out before the wedding! It was beautiful though. I had to work so hard to hold back sobs as I stood up front with my Medusa hair...yes, my Medusa hair. Oh well, it was fun! And beautiful. *sigh*

~Maybe someday I'll have a meaningful blog. Ya know, where I talk about important stuff. But for now, I'm happy just being random and fun :) Hope ya don't mind!
....and I'm not really sure what's going on in that picture. It just made me smile :)


  1. i love the episode from spongebob!!!! :) ahaha, i cracked up all over again. and ugh. the old scooby was WAY better.

    <3anna :)

  2. I totally agree about Scooby Doo and Mickey and Strawberry Shortcake and Ninja Turtles and My Little Ponys and Care Bears.....I could go on, but I'm just getting peeved!!! >=(

  3. Lauren, your blog is so meaningful! I needed to read a post like this so bad.
    I read "Life as We Knew It", and it really freaked me out. And of course, I've been thinking about it a lot lately because we just had a hurricane here. So unusual for New England.
    I loved "Fever 1793". Though it was also pretty creepy. Right now I'm reading Chains, also by Laurie Halse Anderson. I'm really enjoying it.
    Fantastic Mr. Fox grew on me. It's so outrageous, I found it humorous. But another bizarre story!
    Congratulations on your brother getting married! I love the pictures, and the bride looked so pretty!
    Whoa, that was a long comment.:I

  4. I love your blog! Don't change chica!

  5. -shakes head- Lauren, your blog is so refreshing and happy....just what we all need in this world. :)))

    I miss the old Scooby-Doo too! it used to be my favorite show as a kid. 8D

    oh wow, her dress was bee-yoo-tee-ful!!!! so princessy and lovely.....-happy sigh-

    and you got a job at Yankee Candle?!? mmmm, what a nice smelling job! ;)

    love you always,

  6. i love your blog! its makes me smile :)

    oh and i mentioned you in my latest blog post ;) --


  7. I don't like the new scooby all that much either. By the way...tons of icing isn't that bad. :)

  8. I totally agree with the animation. 3D is great for Pixar movies, but does it need to take over the old cartoons too???

    I like the last picture.
