A Picture or Two to Ponder

"Oh No!" The little boy cried to his mother. "The trees are cold out in the snow!" "There, there my son. We know what to do," replies the mother, winking heavily in return.
Before this measley day, I did not think that "knitting" and "wicked" could fit together in one sentence without the word "not" inbetween them. I was sadly mistaken.
MMMM..... It's a delicious blueberry pie, warmly knit. Enjoy it while it's hot!
While you're eating that, you can enjoy texting with this lovely knit iPhone!

Gamble away your money with these lovely knit dice!
They roll softly, so your wife can't hear you.

Look! It's a knitted Russel Brand!

Mmmmm... Breakfast... I can just taste the hairs on my tongue after taking a scrumptious bite into one of those babies.

I swear, whoever invented knitting had A LOT of time on their hands.

..... Um ..... yeah .... I have nothing to say about this particular picture....
This woman clearly was running out of ideas on this homemade quilt.

Ok... WHAT THE HECK IS THAT? Who would want to cuddle with that ball of crap with a long knit yellow noodle sewn to it?! Here you go grandchild. It's ok, you're safe with this stuffed kiwibird. It will protect you when Mommy's gone. CSH, whatever, my butt.
I mean, what ever happened to the traditional mittens?
Sorry folks -- I take it back. Knitting is still ... knitting.
The latest in music videos -- even better if you click on "Watch in High Quality" underneath the Views label. By the way; nice bangs, Lil Mama.

"Oh, I'm with the vampires of course."

Ok, I know that I haven't posted in a while, my life is pretty hectic right now - but I'm gonna sneak in something really quick. Here are the updates...

AHHHHHHHH! TWILIGHT!!!!!!! Yes!! I am SCREAMING. Wow, that was a lot of exclamation points, but this is all true. The real Twilight trailer is now officially out in the media being digested by millions of people all watching TV to surfing YouTube. I think the film makers are doing a pretty good job with it actually! Here's the sneak peak itself: and something behind the scenes that I couldn't leave out: please at least watch one of those links!

OK, now that I'm done screaming, I have to say that Caroline really is a pretty great driver! I mean, it was a little freaky when she got a little too close to the curb, but other than that, she is a really smooth at what she does. Way to go!

My birthday is in 13 days and it feels pretty weird. I don't get to have a party though or anything -- it's a family year.

Today I just got back from my best friend's birthday party. We went up to her big sister's condo in Park City and we chilled in a hot tub and had the BEST. MEXICAN. FOOD. DINNER. EVER!!! It was unbelievable! Her dad made all the food. After that we had virgin margaritas (basically limeade, but with slush and a little umbrella to make you feel special) and sat down to watch Disturbia. Naturally, Caroline ever so slyly slinked out of the room at the opening credits. The opposite of my sister, I stayed through the whole movie loving EVERY BIT of the horror. Later in the morning when I was explaining the details to Caroline and Sage (the other girl who didn't watch -- she fell asleep) I noticed they turned ever so slightly green. Heh. I love freaking people out, myself included. Sorry Carrie and Sage though, didn't mean to really scare you. Anyway the trip was WAY fun.

The last Saturday and Sunday I spent from 10:00 AM to around 1:00-2:00 AM at East High, filming High School Musical 3. It was very...interesting. But in my eyes at least, WAY worth it. The first day I went was more hectic, and the Sunday was rather more of what I would like to call "lying low". Don't worry - they fed us and took care of us. Even Big Buhda from Fox News was there helping out. I met up with my childhood (since birth) best friend, Christine Baird, that I hadn't seen in almost 8 years, and that was a BLAST. Catching up was awesome.

I would like to say more of what we did, but I'm not too eager to test the limits on how far I can go without getting sued, so I'll just settle to tell you that Vanessa Hugens has an attitude, Ashley Tisdale has REALLY weird shoes, the guy that plays her brother has a really high girl scream, and Zac Efron is really short. And he sucks at basketball. Ironic, I know.

Lastly, on Tuesday I had a major dance tryout for C.D.T. (childrens dance theatre) at the U, and it was SO FREAKY! I was shaking like the whole time when I was performing my one minute solo that I had to show. The nerves were killing me, but I think it turned out pretty good in the end. I realize now that if I get into this group, I can probably go tour Jamaica with them next summer!

Anyway, I got to go now. Enjoy my gigantic playlist -- I only have 8 songs that I can put on still, it's so full.
