Think Pink

It’s official: I AM GOING TO DISNEYLAND!!! Tim booked the hotel last night and I just got my 4-day Park Hopper Pass. Weeee! This trip kinda came out of nowhere, but I’m glad it’s happening. My Disney cruise vacation didn’t go through, and my grandpa was supposed to fund that as my graduation present, and then Tim randomly texted me two weeks ago asking if I’d want to go to Disneyland with him, Alise, and her little brother at the end of June, to which I said, “F*CK YEAH, I WANNA GO.” So there’s my graduation present from my grandpa. 😀

I’m leaving this Sunday, so I’ve been looking through my closet to see what I can bring with me. When I went last year I wore a lot of dresses and cardigans (cardigans in SoCal during the summer? I’m not crazy, I just like to avoid getting heat rash!). I looked at the outfit that is pictured above, but then I figured it’d get dirty pretty fast, so I just wore it to work today.

I had some difficulty taking pictures of today’s outfit since it was hella sunny outside — the light kept making me look like big white blob. Therefore, only a halfsie pic for this post. The white lace dress I’m wearing is the same one I wore for my graduation (which can be seen here).

Last night, Jen and I passed through Forever 21 so I could return something I bought last week at Old Navy, and she found this really adorable humanoid bunny necklace. She bought it for me as a graduation present! I love how it’s odd and cute at the same time. Also, I named her Luella… I don’t know why. She just looks like a Luella to me.

Tomorrow I have a bit more work to do for my boss (telecommuting is kind of an odd job), and then I’m going to hang out with my lovely Chocolate Bear, Shanice. Yay!

Mona Lisa Smile

I’ve been watching a lot of Doctor Who lately, especially because of the mid-series finale that aired last Saturday — it hasn’t aired in the US yet, but I found a stream online. I couldn’t wait until this weekend! The end was so MIND BLOWING. It had one of those twists that you should’ve seen coming because the clues were there all along, but then when the thing happened, I was like “HOLY SH!T, NO WAY!” I don’t really want to go into it… spoilers, y’know? If you haven’t watched Doctor Who, please give it a try! The premise of the show follows a man called the Doctor and he travels throughout space and time. Sometimes the show can be really silly, it can also be very scary (just watch “Blink”), it can be dark, and serious. It covers a wide range of emotions, and there’s aliens and monsters and historical figures… oh my! One of my favorite episodes from last season was “Vincent and the Doctor” which had Vincent Van Gogh in it.

Trying to get into Doctor Who is sort of daunting since the show has been around for over 40 years. I started with season 1 of the show’s reboot which aired in 2005 and starred Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and worked my way through David Tennant and Matt Smith’s run. While I did love Eccleston as the Doctor, those first few episodes were a bit boring, so I’d suggest starting with season 5 which stars Matt Smith. I haven’t quite dived into classic Who stuff, except for an episode called “City of Death” which stars Tom Baker.

The Doctor said that the Mona Lisa is one of the greatest treasures in the universe. I like it too, but perhaps I’m not as enthusiatic as he is about it. I do have a Mona Lisa necklace though, and whenever I wear it, I think of that episode now. 🙂

Romana: Why hasn’t she got any eyebrows?

Doctor: What? Is that all you can say, no eyebrows? We’re talking about the Mona Lisa…

Doctor: Heavens, you’re right. She hasn’t got any eyebrows!
