I was REALLY skeptical when I heard that Where the Wild Things are was being adapted to a movie. I figured it was going to be lame so I had no hope that it was going to be good. Especially when this book is famous on its own.
I have also seen how some of my favorite childhood books have been turned into film and they lost a lot of its appeal on the big screen.

But then I saw the trailer and it changed my mind.
I am now enthralled to go and see this movie.

Plus I want that monster suit Max is wearing for Halloween.
Plus plus, Arcade Fire's song seems so chilling and perfect for this trailer.
Plus plus plus, Karen O and Carter Burwell are combining their powers to create the soundtrack.
Plus plus plus plus plus Spike Jonze is directing the film with a GREAT cast to back him up?!

Dear Christopher Walken,

So you may not actually want to run for president, but did you know you have a sleuth of followers that would give you their vote?
There are other celebrities that have gone into the political realm.
Look at Arnold Swarchenegger, Ronald Regan, and Jesse Ventura.
I think you have a fighting chance.

With much love,
Who's a geek.

tough enough

I printed this a while back ago but I never got around to taking the photo.
I'm not happy with the photo. My nose looks extra weird in it (pig-like).

Oh well.
I can get really low self esteem about myself.
I'm my own worst critic.
I've been feeling kind of "off" lately.
I'm not sure why, since there is nothing causing it.
I feel so negative.
And some people at work are starting to get to me.
I need positive things.
happy, funny things.

aahhh.... much better.

I also found out I am taking care of my neighbors little black puppy pug, Porter!
He's ADORABLE! He'll snort his way into my heart!

(That's not actually him)

I can't wait!

its too much

Dear warm weather,

Where are you?
I can feel that you are so close, yet so far.
I miss you.
Hurry up already, so I can complain about how hot it is!

Best wishes

p.s- tell humidity to stay away from me or else I'll have to get a restraining order.

bribary gets me nowhere

So I heard today that the movie Heathers (1988) is going to become a musical.
I LOVE Heathers! Winona before her shoplifting days, and Christian Slater before his controversial days (alcohol and guns).
But I don't know how I feel about a musical...
I feel the same way about all the redone movies that the movie industry has been doing for the past couple of years.
(Amityville Horror, Bad News Bears, Oceans Eleven, Dawn of the Dead, etc etc)
Did you know that they have plans to also redo the movie Clue?!

On a different note, a church today bribed me with a granola bar to check out their church.
I have still yet to eat the granola bar.

Christopher And Tia....

wins the newborn shirt!!!

There might be some other goodies in there so watch out!


So I'm not a big fan of Martha Stewart.
There is something about her that disturbs me.
Maybe its the wholesomeness that she tries to portray.
Maybe its some of the tacky stuff she DOES make.
Maybe because she reconfirms the idea of being a housewife who needs to take care of the man.
Whatever, that doesn't really matter.
What matters is that even though I don't like Martha, I HAVE to give her props for being utterly successful with a paint line, kitchen ware, magazines, books, and probably a clothing line, a well watched TV show, and being well respected as a crafty person (which she can be). But she can then, go to jail, get out, get made fun of, go to interviews to discuss what happened, start her show up again with big guests, continue all her lines of stuff with her face plastered all over it, and have the public forget that she WENT TO JAIL!
I just felt like I am part of an infomercial trying to sell Martha.

last days

Today is the LAST DAY of my sale and as I promised, I have a surprise.
Its a 30% off sale!
Get stuff like this for 30% off. Today only.

sigh... on a different note, I wish it was spring.
I wake up thinking I'll be hearing birds outside my window, but then my dog starts to bark and what I assume is a fly landing somewhere outside about 100 feet away.

You have until tomorrow!

Also tomorrow is the last day for my 20% off sale.

short thoughts & freebies

Ok, remember when I said that I was going to get featured on a blog and I said you will have to tune in to see when it will be.
Its today.

awesome awesome!
I like the part "She's kind of a woman of few words, but she agreed to talk to us anyway."
If my friends read that, they will laugh because in real life, I am NOT a woman of few words!
Its more like "Jess, can I talk now?" or "Jess, shut up I don't care."
Did you know my real name is Jess?
Its kind of weird that I was very breif in that blog interview.
I think I was in a funk during that time.
Oh well.

oh other news, I have some new stuff that I haven't taken pictures of yet.
I can't wait to get them up and running.

Also, I made these cute newborn shirts.
skullz n' staches

I have one more newborn shirt left that I don't know what to do with.

So I am going to attempt to do my first give away!
(Its great as a gift or maybe for a baby shower coming up?)

So give me a reason why you deserve a newborn shirt with many different mustaches?
Any reason!
I don't care if you make up a rediculous story that doesn't make sense and is not true, or a real and serious story.
Just leave a comment and let me know.
Don't forget to leave me your email address.
You'll have until 3/11/09 and I'll choose the winner by 3/13/09.
If you are lucky, there will be other goodies in there for you.

broken minds

My dog broke her thumbnail right down to the skin.
Most of it came off and I had to bring her to the vet to get the rest of it off.

She wasn't happy.

But she does have this absolutely adorable bandages that are pink with purple hearts.
She hates it but its funny to watch her walk alkwardly with it on.
I think she knows I'm laughing at her.

She's all ok though. Apparently its fairly common during the winter months.

On a completely different note, I decided to have a 20% off sale in my etsy shop.
Check it out.

Sigh... I always feel weird plugging my site.

lucky stars and snowy nights

Its snowing a lot which made me decide to stay at home today.
So I'm still in my PJ's and its almost 1PM, but I don't care.

I was going to take my dog out to enjoy the snow, but as I'm looking out there right now, the snow is pretty much horizontal which I'm not sure I want to deal with.
Maybe later...

What I was really going to write about is my excitement.
I was at the local high school so I can let my dog run around freely, when I saw something in the distance.
I was thinking, looks like a camera.
I got closer and that's when I noticed it was a camera. A Holga 120N in fact.
At first I thought, oh it probably doesn't work.
But then I remembered that holgas are pretty much made out of plastic.
So I took it apart, cleaned it up, and let it dry out.
The shutter looks like it still works so I got a Holga for free.
I always wanted one, but I didn't want to dish out the money.
Found Holga

I can't wait to play with it.
