The Dø - Stay (Just a Little Bit More) I really...
My 5 year old cousin requested that I draw for him a few animals, which included, among other things, crocodiles with fairy wings and blue flamingoes. I was relieved that he didn’t realise that all of my mammals basically looked the same, except with varied lengths of tails and ears.
Well... I'm kinda psychic. I have a fifth sense.
Me: I loved your latest livejournal post.
Me: Please may I still some of your brain?
Siewling: ... was that typo on purpose?
It was not. I'm very tired.
Friend of Dorothy
Every time I pass this pet shop called “Wizard of Paws” I have to take a few moments to laugh to myself. No one else seems to appreciate this name as much as I do.
Epic Bus Ride Mix Song 3: Ivy - Edge of the Ocean...
The phrase “Keep up the good work” makes me feel mildly uncomfortable, not when people use it on me, but only in situations where people use it on strangers, like in a flickr page or an interesting blog. It reminds me of spelling tests and grade reports.
Photoshop on the Web →

I will be heading to Bangkok in a week, which, okay, not the holiday I expected to have because all I wanted to do was head somewhere and laze on a beach and look up at a cloudless blue sky, but this will do. If you know where to shop and have a great massage, please email me or something.
I didn’t even know that a guy’s surname could count as a turn off...– Tiffany, in our discussion of how most Chinese last names won’t go with a LOT of first names. Like, “Hi, my name is Aurelie Poon.”
Epic Bus Ride Mix 2: Camera Obscura - Let’s Get...
Considering I was totally psyching myself up for the arrival of my Planet Earth DVDs today, it should be no surprise whatsoever that they did not arrive. I have approximately 3 weeks left to get in as much television as possible before my internship starts and my 500-episodes-in-a-year plan comes to a halt.
I finally got around to watching last week’s Lost. Everytime they start playing this particular score (if you’ve been watching since s1, you should know the one), I start crying like a baby. A hungry, angry baby. Right now, however, I kinda just want to go into random toy shops and go “I need the panda” really menacingly.
What I miss most from last semester in school:
Lorene: No! The guy (in my office) is damn weird and he got (has) an accent. Because he's from KENADIAN."
Yun Ru: "It's CANADA!"
Up next on 30 Rock, highlights bolded: Don’t look for art to imitate life with the onscreen writers of 30 Rock’s show-within-a-show going on strike. ”Audiences didn’t find the strike that entertaining to begin with,” says Rock’s creator/star Fey, ”so to try to keep it going seemed like a drag.” Instead, Jack and rival Devon (Will Arnett) will renew...
I wanted to name my kid Willow
Look at all the pictures from the Paley Panel for Buffy! Oh, I used to (and still have) the biggest crush on Seth Green. He + Alyson Hannigan (who didn’t show up DAMMIT) = reason why I have such a thing for redheads.
I need this shirt. →
(to win the hearts of musicians/geeks all over)
Does anyone know any good babies? →
I wish babies were optional for buying onesies. How cute is that design on that kid?
I finally fulfilled my childhood dream of having Luna colour pencils. I don’t know what was it about this particular brand of pencils but when I was younger all I wanted was this brand especially. I feel like colour pencils have always been very underrated art mediums. This is a great guide to making full use of them.
Hidzir: I saw this Discovery Channel documentary once where this neurologist said that most deja vu incidents occur when the brain routes the info wrongly, like it goes from the eyes into the memory part of your brain and then into the conscious part. So you interpret a new thing as a memory.
Me: Oh, how cool! I absolutely LOVE the feeling. It makes me feel all psychic. It's like I have ESPN!
I love anytime I get to quote Mean Girls. However, I am kind of torn about this - love science and discoveries, but I have always liked to approach dreams and deja vu with naiveté rather than skepticism.
I’d be the best rich person, seriously. I’d be the perfect...– Veronica Mars. Me too - instead of wasting my money on monogrammed linens, I’d be buying awesome stuff like elephant dust pans for every room in my house. See? Cute, and useful.
I would like to start a business where people pay me for coming up with names for their children, mostly because I am always disappointed when I meet people named John/Jon/Jonathan or any other variation, or finding out that a family friend just named their kid with my namesake. (I’m not claiming my name for only me to use, but I find it rather uncreative when new parents use names of people...
Late Night with Stefanie Wee
Stef: I think it's some vitaimin deficienetlsy. Pretend itspelt thatright.
Stef: I don't think ia cat my srink?
Stef: Haaheahaaeha. that alushg's laugh's supposed to look noraml.
Stef: But it was in Antracitiacia antarac you know what i mean?
Stef: Aim for antarriaca antarcticasa dude.
Stef: Wody you really want to continue a iacopnversation with me incapiriciatiaed ike htis?
This is me with 0 amounts of alcohol or caffeine in my system. I would make the worst (or best) drunk person. I think I was talking about dreams and how I had to retake a test in Antarctica in one of mine, then I made penguins kidnap the teacher.
I wish someone had video-ed me trying to stuff my quilt into the quilt covers. It was basically 15 minutes of me swimming in and cursing at cotton. Is there a “Fold-your-shirt-in-3-seconds” for changing bedsheets?
If you can’t sleep till 4am every night, but when you finally do, end up sleeping till 12 the next morning, it doesn’t count as insomnia right?
Mythbusters debunking the Moon Landing Hoax Myth! →
dingoesatemybaby:This is going to be so cool! The Build Team were spotted at Marshall Space Flight Center to use their vacuum chamber. While there, they will be recreating Dave Scott’s famous hammer and feather drop from the Apollo 15 mission. They’ll also be dealing with the hoax claim that dry lunar regolith can’t hold a footprint, and how the flag can wave in a vacuum. There’s even an official...
Annoy, tiny blonde one, annoy like the wind!
I haven’t watched my Veronica Mars season 1 DVDs in forever (mostly because my DVD player in the living room refuses to play them and it’s one of those shows that has to be watched on a widescreen TV that’s minimum 40 inches across). I finally got it to work, so my DVD-marathon yesterday and today made me feel really nostalgic for the first time I watched those episodes so many...
If it suits you...
shittyjokes: I have always wondered this about people that work in tuxedo shops: When a customer enters the store, instead of asking, “How may I help you?” do they say “How may I suit you?” And if the customer declines their help, do they get mad and say, “Fine! Suit yourself!” ? (lolertie?) I think I need to know more people with this sense of humor. It would be mucho appreciated in my...
Bored now (and always)
Does anyone else have days where they are just completely bored with life? It’s probably because I need to get out of the house more, but even then, I don’t think I’d be satisfied. It’s mostly because I crave dolphin adventures and nights with fireworks and dancing in the rain and screaming “I am alive!” while Broken Social Scene plays Ibi Dreams of Pavement.
Last night, I partially agreed to my younger brother’s request to get up at 6am today for a jog. I ended up waking up at 2pm, which is one of the reasons why the plan was never going to work out in the first place. I don’t even have a pair of running shoes. At least my mind made up for the lack of work-out my body is not getting, by giving me a kickass dream where I spotted Mas...
Buffy > Life →
It’s nice to know that your friends are looking out for you when, in a conversation where you’ve just mentioned how you’ve already spent about $700 on just DVDS and clothes this month alone, they link you to Amazon and point out the 50% discounts on the collector’s sets for various television shows they know I love and to gorgeous useless things on Urban Outfitters....
Not a euphemism
Younger brother: Why'd he (Eliot Spitzer) hire a prostitute for, sex?
Me: No, he wanted her to read him a story.
Dad: To play badminton.
A fabulous way to embarrass yourself
Inara George: Where'd you guys hear of us (The Bird and the Bee)?
Everyone else: The internet!
This one guy: Grey's Anatomy!
Tied to a night they never met. →
I know most of you are probably sick of me posting things about the Broken Social Scene concert but this was my favourite song of the night. These are one of those very few moments in my life that I would be fine with re-living over and over. What I’m saying is, be prepared for a few hundred post-The-Bird-and-the-Bee concert posts after tonight.
