out & about

There ain’t no party like a hashbrown party

My Halloween turned out to be a lot better than I thought. I attempted to do a hipster take on Minnie Mouse, but ended up not looking so hipter-ish. Jen, Tim, and myself ended up going to Dell’Osso Farm and wandered around the maze. It was dark and I damn near fell a few times, and I accidentally slapped Jen on the face when she poked me (I meant to slap her arm. Mah bad). Lots of poking, tickling, and butt slapping occurred. But that’s what best friends are supposed to do to each other, right? I guess we’re just an abusive bunch. o,0

I forgot to bring a flashlight for the maze, but Jen had her little reading light and Tim had his Sonic Screwdriver which actually made for a decent flashlight. Kinda noisy, but it makes you look cool (or stupid depending on who’s looking at you… x__x).

Afterwards we met up with Heather at Denny’s where we had copious amounts of hashbrowns. Tim and I did one of those Build Your Own Grand Slam things and just got a bunch of hashbrowns, ’cause there ain’t no party like a hashbrown party ’cause a hashbrown party is DELICIOUS. I seriously love hashbrowns. Or I just love potatoes in general. They’re so amazingly versatile.


I didn’t take any pictures with Heather on my camera because I fail at life.

After Denny’s, Jen went home and then the rest of us went to Walmart because it’s open 24/7 and what else is there to do at 11 pm in Stockton? We basically just danced around the store, more tickling and poking ensued, and it was just perfect. 🙂

So that was my Halloween. Hope you all had an amazeballs one too!


The Costume Conundrum

It’s Halloween and I still don’t know what I’m going to dress up as. RUGH. And my plans are still unclear as I was originally going to have a Doctor Who marathon with Jen, Marcos, and Shanice at Shanice’s place, but I haven’t been able to get a hold of Shanice to confirm what time and what we should bring, etc. WHERE ARE YOU WOMAN? CALL ME! As an alternative plan, we’re thinking of going to Dell’Osso Farm’s pumpkin patch to check out the maze. As for my costume, I’m taking the DIY route by just looking through my wardrobe to see what I can put together. It’s been quite frustrating.

My options are…

  • Minnie Mouse
  • Diana Prince (Wonder Woman’s alter ego, think Clark Kent/Superman)
  • Hogwarts school girl
  • 11th Doctor
  • Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs

I managed to put an 11th Doctor outfit together, but when I put it on I looked all frumpy because my boobies are too effing big. *shakes fist at the heavens*

I was Diana Prince last year, and Karen O the year before… I don’t really want to do repeats. And I don’t know where my Wonder Woman costume is (and the bustier totally stained my white button-up shirt). So I guess I’m left with Minnie Mouse and Hogwarts school girl (which I wore in July for the last Harry Potter movie, you can see that here).

Well, I hope everyone else has a happy and safe Halloween!!!

Now… I gotta go figure this shit out and see if I still have time to make Rory’s Ewok costume… /headache

geek style

I’m still 5…

Sometimes I don’t have enough time to put an outfit together, so this is what I ended up wearing to work this morning. Later on I realized that this is something my 5-year-old self would’ve probably worn. I can’t say Minnie Mouse has always been my favorite. Daisy Duck was my homegirl when I was a wee lass. I had a blanket with baby Daisy on it and it was one of my most favorite things in the whole wide world. But every time I went to Disneyland, Daisy was never there and there wasn’t a whole lot of merchandise with her mug on it. Everything was Minnie, Minnie, Minnie. I had a Minnie purse, fanny-pack, t-shirts, dresses, etc. No Daisy! Not even a plush doll. 😦


I learned to love Minnie Mouse though, and went crazy when Forever 21 launched their Minnie Muse line last fall.

The coolest pair of Chucks I ever owned were a pair of purple ones with dinosaurs on them. I think I had those when I was in preschool. The ones pictured above would be the second pair of coolest Chucks I have ever owned. My mom got them for me last year at Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale! They’re slip-ons with a pop-art/comic book feel — the shoe laces and stitches are painted on.

I found this ring at a garage sale last week. It kind of reminded me of the cheap-o rings I would get at Sanrio, or as I still like to call it “The Hello Kitty Store,” when I was little. It’s fun because I can shift all the gems whichever way I please. Also, they kinda remind me of the fireworks at Disneyland. 😀

I remember watching an episode of What Not To Wear a few years ago, and Clinton and Stacy were against wearing garments with cartoon characters on them if you were over the age of 10. While I think they have good taste, I disagree with them on that. I’m all about graphic shirts with my favorite characters on them, so long as I look age appropriate. And I think I did today.
