Muppetville.

May 21, 2009

I thought – and Google is backing me up on this – that Muppetville was that fun little place where the Muppets lived. Turns out it’s some little town in the UK that I can find absolutely no information on, but in exchange for money I need to write ten different articles about renting generators and each article must contain the keyword phrase “generator hire Muppetville,” among others. Can you use that phrase in a sentence that makes sense, without copping out and writing about how you can put it in a search engine? Let me know if you can, because I need to write these articles and I’ve used my “PUT IT IN A SEARCH ENGINE, LOL” quota.

Four and a half articles complete, five-point-five to go. Awesome.

Mommy Day.

May 11, 2009

I hope you all hugged your mothers, or wives if you’re male and have a wife with children, and told them you love them! If you didn’t, and they’re upset with you and you can’t figure out why, it’s probably because you forgot about Mother’s Day. You horrible person.

I hugged my mom, because I’m a good daughter like that. I also gave her a box of chocolate (but that’s on the down-low so she doesn’t have to share; don’t tell my dad…) Kael did not give me any chocolate, except for the kind he makes himself. It didn’t smell really great, so I decided to just change his diaper and throw it away and give him a kiss on his soft little head. He’s a warm, snuggly little sweetheart, chocolate or no.

We went on a brunch cruise on the Willamette Star with my grandparents. Maybe “brunch” is an inappropriate noun to be applied to the supposedly edible things on board; “yuck” might be more suited. Kael behaved perfectly and got to steer the ship (touch the steering wheel while the captain moved it around) and got a certificate naming him “Captain Kael” to prove it. It’s cute.

I am now returning to graphics-making for Wilsonville Honda. THE END

Freelancing.

May 5, 2009

I got a job as a freelance writer, beginning May 18th. I’ll be in training for a few weeks, then I’ll move to full work and pay. It will be awesome and of great assistance in my quest to pay off bills and get a car. It will also look great on my resume and will give me lots of experience prior to returning to Willamette in the fall. I will be the best and most efficient essay writer ever.

On a related note, I’m currently offering editing services via the internet and PayPal. It’s cheap. You should hire me. c:

Seriously, though: wildsnorlaxappeared@hotmail.com
Give me money and things to edit, because I’m worth it.

Recent Life, in Pictures

April 29, 2009

We attended my Auntie Jen’s wedding. The title of this post is a bit of a lie, as I have no pictures for this event. Dad has the camera’s memory card and is not at home, you see. Let me assure you that, despite lack of photographic evidence, my baby Kael looked exceedingly handsome in his sweater vest.

We went to playoff game number two between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Houston Rockets. We had floor seats and they were really sweet. People seated on the floor can get a whole pint of ice cream hand-delivered to them for $4.50! My sister and I split a mint chocolate chip. Portland won after a hard-fought game and it was really great to watch. They’re playing game 5 tonight – best of luck to Portland! (Pictured: Me and my sister being our sexy selves.)

SO MUCH HAWTNESS

Baby Kael is getting very big. He’ll be 10 weeks old on Thursday. He’s been grumpy since getting his shots last week, but he still smiles and coos and does cute baby things. (Pictured: Baby Kael.)

He's ready to NOM NOM NOM

Speaking of Baby Kael, he is an extremely expensive little boy. Since I’m working fairly irregularly at Wilsonville Honda, and being a guide at ChaCha pays around $3 an hour, I’m busily looking for new sources of income. I’m in the process of creating my website, which will be linked here when complete for all to enjoy. Hurrah.

I’m going to end with a ridiculous video I put together for my sister. Her assignment was to create a commercial for a book. She chose The Luxe, by Anna Godbersen. I wrote out a whole script that we filmed, but we ended up using only four scenes, so yay for superfluous work… Also, I voiced over everything because we realized after we were done filming everything that the mics really didn’t work that well.

Outright Sexiness.

April 12, 2009

So I turned in my DS Lite and got a pretty new black Nintendo DSi. Then I put a skin on it which I ordered from the internet. The result: Outright sexiness. I also dyed my hair black, though that was unrelated to the purchasing of the DSi. Here is a picture of all three: the DSi, the skin, and my awesome hair:

SO SEXY

The picture was taken with one of the DSi’s two cameras. It has a camera on the outside and another on the inside below the top screen. The camera quality is relatively decent, comparable to the iPhone. Also like the iPhone, the DSi has a web browser. It’s slow and requires an unlocked wireless network, but it is a browser, and it’s convenient to use thanks to the touchscreen. The DSi also has a sound recorder and editor and downloadable content. It’s thinner and has a larger screen than its predecessor. My only complaints when compared to the Nintendo DS Lite are the power and volume buttons. The power button is somewhat inconveniently placed, and I prefer the wheel sound control rather than buttons. Overall, though, a nice upgrade and I feel sort of awesome for owning it.

Unrelated: I’ve been noticing a lot of this lately, so I’m going to say something. APOSTROPHES DO NOT GO ON PLURAL NOUNS.

That will be all.
