It's OK, I'd be grumpy too if I didn't own a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster.

Great Gifs That Work With Real Life

When I feel epic:

When I'm writing on a story/ script (yes I even turn green)

When I'm baking:

When I'm sad and someone makes me feel better:

When someone makes a reference I understand:

When Johanna says something from a movie that goes perfectly with what we are talking about:

Our dance parties are like:

Playing hide and go seek:

When it's really hot outside and I find a fan:

Acting things out so people will understand what the battle scene in that movie was like:


We are proof, if you first have a box. Then soon you will have cats.

My Favourite Movies and Why

Lets just jump right in, shall we?

Movie: How to Train Your Dragon
Why?: It's mostly the memories that go with it (well, at least it can't fly!). Also the animation is awesome, and the sound track is unparalleled.
Quote from the movie:

[being chased by a Nadder] AHHH! I'm *really* beginning to question your teaching methods.

Movie: Pride and Prejudice
Why?: It's a great story, it's hard to get tired of. I love the dancing and the music! 

Mrs. Bennet: Have you no consideration for my poor nerves?
Mr. Bennet: You mistake me, my dear. I have the utmost respect for your nerves. They've been my constant companion these twenty years.

Movie:  Rise of the Guardians
Why?: The characters practically jump out of the screen. The first time I watched this I was so into the movie that I was giggling and gasping along with what was happening in the story. :)
Quote: Bunny: I'm a bunny mate

Movie: Tangeled
Why?: I love that it's a sing along! Also it's a cute movie :)

Flynn Rider: Her hair glows! I didn't see that coming.The hair actually glows.Why does her hair glow????
Rapunzel: Eugene!
Flynn Rider: [almost in hysteria] What?
Rapunzel: It doesn't *just* glow.
  [Pascal smiles at him smugly]
Flynn: Why is he smiling at me?

Polls are Back!

Polls are back! I plan to make a new poll every week, so feel obligated to vote! Just look between the typing Donatellos, over there  -------->
(Also I'm not sure why there are 2 Gifs of Donatello, but it amuses me.)

Yesterday Johanna, Sam and I got together and searched drawing tutorials on YouTube. It was fun because we plugged Johanna's computer into the TV so it was BIG. These are my best drawings:

 Purple Minion - Despicable Me 2
(Thrilled how it worked out. Awesome right?)

 Sandy - Rise of the Guardians

(drawing muscles are harder than you might think...)

Kyoya - Beyblade
(surprised that it actually looks like him)

Legolas, Little and on a Leash

 I have Johanna to thank for showing me this. She sent me the link about five months ago, and then found it again last night.

Like Johanna said, "....this is mostly funny because Legolas is little and on a leash" (You wouldn't believe how funny that is at eleven o'clock at night!)

Some Funny Clips From TMNT

This is seriously the best show on TV right now.
Nobody is more squirrely than Mikey, more smash-happy than Raph, more creative than Donny, or as stealthy as Leo. (See below)

Covering Some Songs

Johanna and I did a cover of one of our favourite songs, Chances by Five for Fighting. The violin was kind of an after though, and is far from perfect, but we had fun recording it (maybe you can tell?)

On My Way is a song that means a lot to me, and I'm really happy with how it sounds. Cool to have siblings that can sing :)
Sam has the solo in the beginning in case you're wondering ;)

Why I Probably Shouldn't Become a Wedding Photographer

Because I'd do this:

The Curve of the Earth

Something I love about flying is looking out the window. More often than not it's cloudy, but when it's not it's amazing.
I ran across these photos today, I took them back in August when we were flying to Turkey. I was going to bed on the plane (about 11pm Canada time) and I looked out my window. What I saw amazed me, so I dug out my camera and got these awful pictures. They are less than perfect, but it shows a little what it looked like. Just imagine the red brighter and a few stars above. I don't know what the red is, I assume it's the sun reflecting on the clouds, but I don't know. It was breath taking. And I don't say that often!

A Turkish Happy Meal

We went out for lunch Sunday with Dad and a fellow he works with.
We went to Erdgan (I think that's how you spell it...), it's a cool restaurant. Some restaurants are really close to water, or have great food, or nice views, but Erdogan has animals. Year round they have rabbits hanging around the out door seating aria. They are pretty shy, but fun to watch.
After everybody was pretty much done eating a chicken wandered over and mom dropped it some bread. The chicken was pretty disinterested, I guess it got so much bread it got picky. But a rabbit hopped over, and another one. We had fun feeding them :)

Mom noticed a baby rabbit, I turned around and it ran into a store room.
Mom convinced Sam and I to go over and try to coax it out. Mom came with us, we tried, but with little success. Once of the guys who worked there came over and helped us. The rabbit (whom I called Greg from that moment forward) ran out of the store room and into their hutch/feeding thingy. I assumed the battle was over, but apparently not. The Erdogan worker got down flat on the ground and reached into the hutch/feeder thingy and got Greg out. The Rabbit Wrangler got up, handed me Greg and walked away.
I could not wipe the smile off my face! He was so little! And fluffy!

After I'd been holding Greg for about three minutes the man who owns (?) the restaurant came over and told us (with Dad's work buddy translating) that if I wanted to, I could take Greg home.
So long story short, that's what we did! :P

Greg turned out to be a girl, so her name is now Colbie Tavşan. (tavşan is Turkish for rabbit.) :) 

Kind of a weird story, hey? I guess I won't be invited next time my family goes out for lunch....

This is good

Braved the heat today and went for a walk. Pretty much everything is yellow and dry now. I got these pictures that I'm pretty happy with.

New Bangs

Mom cut my bangs today, I like them a lot! It's just weird seeing both my eyebrows again....

Reasons to get Bangs:
1. They are awesome
2. If you wear them you will be awesome
3. They make you look like you have hair, even if you scrape your hair into a really tight pony tail. (Some people can pull this look off with out bangs. I can't.) 
4. There are so many different styles to choose from
5. Etc. etc, etc...

Tom Bombadil (why was he cut?)


Is anybody else really freaked out about that bus?

A real conversation

*Sam walks in with timer.*
Me: Whatcha gonna do?
Sam: Lego Lord of the Rings
Johanna: whatcha gonna do when they come for you?
Sam: huh?
Johanna: it's a song: whatcha gonna do when they come for you bad boys, bad boys.
Sam: Who's coming?
Johanna: I don't know?
Sam: Girls?
