Faux Tattoos

While at the dollar store today, I picked up some liquid eyeliner to play with.

Then I drew on my kid with it.

Since he’s a big Star Wars fan, he wanted his two favorite characters.
For only being 3, he sat relatively still and they came out decent.
I’m not sure how long they’ll stay on there, but they haven’t smudged off yet.
A little eye-makeup remover and I can make them disappear if I need to go somewhere fancy with him. 🙂

Half and Half

If you’ve ever struggled with growing out your hair,
Or trying to work up the nerve to cut it short,
Perhaps you should simultaneously do both!
I probably won’t but you can.
Project Runway’s Anya did it,
And she totally pulled it off with her adorable little face.
Here is a little Anya-inspired doodle I fingerpainted with this new android tablet
The program is called sketchbook I think….
And it’s FREE!

Go With Your GUT

intuition

 

Unfortunately,
I don’t always practice what I preach.
And my gut was telling me,
“HEY guess what, you’re tired! You should totally go to bed!”

That was like 2 hours ago.

MORAL:

Follow your intuition, not your heart.

Math Homework …

For those of you who weren’t in the know,
I was homeschooled.
Ok.
Moving right along…
For some reason one year, I think maybe I was in 8th grade,
I felt led to create an inspirational proverb at the bottom of each of my math papers upon their completion.
This went on for quite some time, and my mom still teases me about  it every now and then.
The moral of that little story is that I still like making up quotes, poems and proverbs.
I am going to be a perpetual 8th grader for my entire life, it seems.
But it’s okay.
I embrace that.
Here is one I made today, because I wanted to play with my drawing tablet again.

Fox Mulder ::: Happy Labor Day

Ok, so his real name is David Duchovny,
But after watching so many X-Files episodes,
It’s really hard to think of him as a real life guy.
If you weren’t aware, all 9 seasons are ‘Watch Instantly’ on Netflix.
Yeah.
Now you’ve got some work cut out for you.
(If you missed the Gillian Anderson drawing, you can click here to see it)
I spent the baby’s nap-time today at Starbucks drawing this one.
And sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Never mind that it’s atrociously hot for September.
September means ‘Fall’ to me,
And I’m going to have as many Pumpkin Spice lattes as I can, regardless of the weather.

…Oh and Daddy was home with baby so it’s ok that I left for a bit 🙂

Hope everyone had a splendid Labor Day and got to go to a parade or grill out or something!
Yeah!

This is Bryce.

 

Bryce is one of the sweetest kids you could ever meet.
I used to babysit him and his brother when they were tiny tots.
His family found that he had lymphoma when he was 11 and he has been battling it off and on for several years now.
He had a successful bone marrow transplant 1 year ago, but is still working on getting healthy and currently struggling with some kidney issues.
Nobody, let alone a child, should have to go through what he has,
Yet this amazing kid always has a smile on his face and will strike up a conversation with anyone.
If you or someone you love has been affected by childhood cancer,
Or heck, even if you are just a compassionate soul,
Reblog this or spread the awareness in some other way
And pray for Bryce and the other children who are fighting against this awful disease.

-peace and love-

So I’m supposed to believe that…

 

 

Here’s to all you Dana Scully fans.
I’m still watching The X-Files chronologically.
It takes a while when there are over 200 episodes…
Not looking forward to next season when Doggett enters the scene…
OH WELL.

 

I’m a crazy person.
Time to sleep.

Watson, my dear Watson.

So this time around,
It was really difficult,
And I’m not sure why.
Still, something is not quite right.
I mean,
It seems like she’s got a pretty uncomplicated face.
Perhaps because it’s so darn perfect.
She’s also pretty much the only girl that can pull off this haircut
And still look beautiful,
So don’t go trying it just because she got away with it.
You will most likely be disappointed.

Also, if you like music,
Here is a shameless plug for myself.
I recorded this song today in my basement.

Pointless Animosity.

I drink black coffee and I like it.
As long as it’s good coffee.
Even if it’s just pretty decent coffee.
But here’s the thing.
(We all have our faults, do we not?)
Well.
I don’t crave chocolate,
I don’t smoke,
I don’t go out and buy myself new things very often…
BUT
I do like me some latte.
Like, not just espresso and steamed milk.
I like the really fancy frou frou drinks.
The drinks that you can practically have for a meal.
That is my major fault.
(Although I’m not apologizing, mind you.)
Like I said. We all have to have a small vice.
This is mine.

Another thing that bothers me is when people bash Starbucks.
If you refuse to support them based on an issue of affiliation or what have you,
That is up to you.
But don’t get down on them just because they are successful.
I have worked for many coffee shops in my day,
And while working for Starbucks,
I was treated with the utmost respect
And had good, affordable benefits and happy co-workers.
Happy employees is a really good sign.
And I think it’s poppycock when people refuse to go there because it’s a chain.
They’re obviously huge for a reason.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about supporting local businesses,
And with the number of lattes I go through in a month,
I have plenty of chances to go hither and thither with my coffee money
And support the little guy and the big guy alike.
But let’s be real here.
If I’m right by Starbucks and I want my ‘coffee’,
I’m going to get it there.
Plus they have a drive-thru.
If the babychild is sleeping in the back, or even just content in his car seat,
I will drive through so I don’t have to get him out and make him mad.
Honestly, if more of the locally owned coffeehouses would add a drive-thru
I would frequent them even more.
SO THERE!
Ha.
Here’s a snotty little picture I made to express my feelings.

 

Now if you’d really just like something to get upset about,
Focus your anger on the fact that people often say
“EXPRESSO”
Instead of
“ESPRESSO”

That. Is unforgivable.

p.s. If you actually read all that, you should get an award.
