missing in action

Internet friends! I am so sorry for this abandonment! Super sad faces all around; but I have been swamped in things to do, places to go, people to see. Not only am I getting sick (I’m a major insomniac fyi), but I started my new job and, hooray, its midterm week month!! Good thing I don’t have much of a social life, or I’d be running on fumes.

I promise I’ll be back soon! But for now, excuse me as I go gouge my eyeballs out with spoons.

Meanwhile, here’s this to look at while I’m on my death bed…

the walking dead recap: episode 11

No matter how much I need to do and no matter how long my day has been, you can always trust I’ll be watching The Walking Dead on Sunday nights. 

iaintajudas

And here’s Team Rick, holding on after that crazy walker bomb. But what I’m wondering is why they’re still at the prison! They should have gotten out of there while they could. And sad to say, but Merle does have a point…the Governor is one nasty excuse of a man. WHOA! You go Herschel, you tell him!! Rick, I love you, but this psycho act has got to stop. The team needs a leader and I need you. 

Oh how I’ve missed that constant grumble of hungry zombies. And here comes Carl, thinking he’s the man. Too bad you’re still a small child! AND NOBODY TELLS RICK TO BACK DOWN. I suppose he does need some rest, but Carl needs to step back in line.

I seriously can’t wait until the Governor takes that eyepatch off. And surprise, surprise…they’re assembling an army. Then Andrea barges in like the obnoxious, stupid being she is. No Governor, they’re NOT bloodthirsty! You are!! And Andrea says something sensible?! Wait, I take that back. You can’t just go visit Team Rick!! Dear god, you really are stupid.

Child soldiers…are you for real?! Asthmatic child soldiers! Hahaha.

AHHH I SEE IT I SEE IT! RICK THE LEADER IS COMING BACK! Plus, now he has his betas, Daryl and Glenn. The trifecta of manliness. And Herschel keeps getting cooler and cooler every episode. Then SHANE pops up in the conversation! Ahh!

I’m seriously unsure how I feel about Merle right now. On one hand, he is a huge asset because of his inside information. On the other, he is a huge ass and I hate him. BUT HE CAN QUOTE SCRIPTURE! HE IS JESUS OUR SAVIOUR! BOW DOWN! No. Yea thats interesting, but just because he knows the Bible, it doesn’t mean we can instantly trust him.

Haha crazy old Woodsbury lady wants to fight too. And Asthma Kid had a BB gun! Rock on, Asthma Kid!

Awwwwwwwwww…Carol and Daryl sitting in a tree, k i s s i n g. Or being awkward…why is this so awkward? Stop it! Just love each other!

I cannot handle Gilbert carrying a gun!!!! His vocabulary is so grand and scholarly and I can’t stop laughing. Andrea, the pot stirrer. Now she wants to put my buddy Gilbert in the middle of this. Selfish woman. 

And my prayers have been answered…THE EYEPATCH COMES OFF! Then he chickens out just when it was getting good, and puts on a second eyepatch. A PIRATE EYEPATCH! LOL! Arrrrrrr mateys!! He is no longer the Governor to me, as long as that eyepatch stays on, he is Pirate Philip!! And major plot twist (not really), Gilbert betrays Andrea. And Pirate Philip actually wants her to go, not sure where he’s going with that plan yet.

Zombie! I hope it attacks Andrea! OH SNAP! Andrea is totally jacking Michonne’s walker swag!!! Not cool, Andrea, not cool. Loving this zombie action though. Hahaha an ugly zombie troll appears! AND HOLY SH*T IT’S THE NEWBIES!!!

Michonne, you stone cold fox. Keep being strong and mean to Merle, I dig that.

Newbies meet Andrea. Super awkward! Oh dear, them going to Woodsbury cannot be good for anyone. Cue my nervous breakdown!

I hope Carl shoots Andrea and she gets demolished by walkers. That would be good for everyone. And Michonne is all “WTF. That b*tch jacked my swag, I’m so mad”. Yay!! Rick takes charge!!! Keep harassing Andrea, don’t let her waltz right in!

And I am momentarily pissed at Rick for letting her in. Okay moment over. And we have SHANE MENTION #2!! And don’t bring up Lori, then stare at Carl and Rick! How rude! YOU. DO. NOT. BELONG. Kick Andrea out Rick, kick her out!! Don’t let her get her slimy paws over your beautiful team! Andrea needs to face the facts…nobody likes her. I can’t even deal with her. BUT RICK THE LEADER IS COMING BACK MORE AND MORE! HAPPY DAYS!

Michonne confronts Andrea about being a total copy cat with the walkers. Just kidding. But I see a little showdown coming on! Preach it, Michonne! See Andrea?!! Do you finally see how dumb you’ve been?! How you’ve antagonized EVERYONE?!

Ahoy! Pirate Philip meets the newbies! Ugh he is so full of lies!! And BOOM. They mention the prison! OH NO YOU DIDN’T! RICK. IS. NOT. AN. IDIOT. YOU DON’T KNOW HIM! YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT HE’S BEEN THROUGH! I AM SO MAD RIGHT NOW! Newbies, I thought I liked you. I thought you were ok. You’re now on the same level as Pirate Philip as far as I’m concerned. 

Andrea get away from Lil Ass Kicker! You’re contaminating her. SHANE MENTION #3! Don’t act all surprised, even you knew Shane was an idiot. Rick isn’t cold!! Why is everyone hating on Rick?! LEAVE RICK ALONE! Carol comes up with such an evil genius idea, I am shocked. I like the way you think, Carol.

Goodbye and good riddance, Andrea. I hope a walker eats your brains…wait. You don’t have any.

Asthma kid manning the Woodsbury walls! Andrea better do a good job as double agent. And possibly she’ll get a single point with me…possibly. Ew Pirate Philip you are so gross!! I can’t even watch them interact, this is disgusting. 

Awww, Team Rick is such a cute little family. I am tearing up.

Rick…have you finally come back to us?! To stay?! YAYYYY! Carl, you’re small. But I guess if Rick thinks you’re cool, you’re good enough in my books. 

ANDREA KILL PIRATE PHILIP! DO IT! DO IT! And big surprise, she doesn’t. Good job failing everyone and yourself. No point for you Andrea, no point for you. 

TEAM RICK: Rick is back on top like he should be! Take that, haters! And Shane was mentioned 3 times. 

TEAM WOODSBURY: Next episode, we will see Asthma Kid assume leadership. 

TEAM ZOMBIE: Still cool, but they haven’t killed Andrea yet. 

FAVOURITE MOMENT: Rick holding his baby. Lil Ass Kicker + Rick = :))))))

the ‘unloveables’

This post is dedicated to the ones with the wall around their heart, built so high and so strong, that entry is impossible; the ones who are scared; the ones who don’t accept love, even when it is handed to them with a cherry on top…

the unloveables.

I’m sure we all have these people in our lives or some of us may even be these people. I call them “the unloveables”. Not because nobody loves them, but simply because nobody could ever love them enough. They’re not the ‘heartbreak kids’, the ones who have loved and been hurt too many times to love again. They’re not fragile. They’re not sad. Well, maybe they are, but they don’t know that. They’re not something you treat gently, because the unloveables rarely come packaged up in bubble wrap with caution signs.

939786ddd8c0a7b0cf0c2e17b99ec673

They’re usually always smiling. They’re tough and a little rough around the edges. They laugh at jokes at their expense and don’t need the reassurance of many. The unloveables are the ‘independent’ ones. They’re usually the people who you might even admire, for they never need someone to make them happy. They can do that on their own. They rarely ever fall in love. Nobody can disappoint them, because they rely on themselves and set no expectations. But, true and complete independence is a facade. And though nobody may be able to disrupt that little self-sustaining world, nobody is there to make it better. Nobody is there to show you what you’re missing. Of course, I believe in inner happiness (didn’t I blog about inner peace?), but sometimes we all need somebody.

I always felt the unloveables were lonely. It must be tough to never know love and guard that fortress around their heart. Sure, they’re happy, but they’re missing out. And I felt bad, even though I shouldn’t. But then I met one. And loving an unloveable?

That’s even tougher.

sk8er girl

Sunshine and sneakers…my paradise.

P1010955

I am the chameleon of style. I go through so many fashion phases within such a short period of time, it could give you whiplash trying to keep up with me. Currently? I want to be a skater girl. I want to coast down Venice Beach on a longboard, rocking a snapback and distressed jeans. I want to be sponsored by Red Bull. I want to chill with Ryan Sheckler and show each other all our cool tricks. I want to shop at places like Tilly’s and wear brands like Neff.

Which is why I am currently obsessed with sneakers. I wear them with shorts, jeans, leggings, even my maxi dresses. They add the perfect touch of tomboy to any outfit. I’ve got the sneakers, but now I need to advance beyond sliding down the length of my driveway on my brother’s baby skateboard.

But instead of learning how to actually ride a skateboard, I styled outfits based on my sneakers. Thats close enough, right?

the walking dead recap: episode 10

Sunday nights are the reason I am still alive. They must be.

WALKING-DEAD-RICK_320x240

Rick, whatcha looking at? OMG NOT LORI!!! NO. GO AWAY LORI, GO BACK TO SHANE IN THE PITS OF HELL AND DESPAIR. Sorry that was harsh. But we mustn’t forget Lori is a snivelling sl*t. Wah, Rick chasing a mental projection of Lori is such a definition of his breakdown; it makes me want to curl up into fetal position and let tears trickle down my cheek. I am hurting for this beautiful man. 

Welcome back to Woodsbury, the most useless people you’ll ever meet. Hey Governor, I call bullshit. No retaliation my butt. Wait, OMG if Andrea becomes the new Governor, I’ll cry and Woodsbury will disintegrate into full blown stupidity.

Daryl looked so much better standing beside Rick. Merle, shut your ugly mouth and listen to Daryl and his bulging biceps. 

Silly Carl thinks he’s such a smarticle particle. Go away Carl. AHH IF GLENN ACTUALLY JUST KILLED THE GOVERNOR I WOULD LOSE IT!! I would be so happy, I would throw a party and you’d all be invited. Glenn is so tough and boss man, I am digging it. I vote Glenn for president!!

Gilbert just makes me LOL. And the fact the Governor thinks he has enough balls to betray him is hilarious.

Ohhhh, his name is Milton. Lame. Whatever, I’m sticking with Gilbert. Omg pause hahaha! I CANNOT. “ON A RUN”. GILBERT, YOU ROCK.

Glaggie! If their love doesn’t last, all my hopes and dreams will be forever crushed. Maggie come on, I love you but look at how cool Glenn is. And I understand you’re traumatized by the creepazoid Governor, but do you even KNOW what Glenn went through for you?! Girls are psycho. Give him a god damn hug. 

Carol teaching Axel to use a gun. Wut.

Seeing Daryl without Rick is like seeing my spoon without Nutella in it. Devastating. OMG A BABY! What is happening?!

Team Zombie bringing the heat to some randoms! And we finally get to see that beautiful crossbow in action! BOOM! TRUNK DOOR ZOMBIE DECAPITATION. My palms are so sweaty right now. Then, the cherry on top of this catastrophe, Daryl turns on Merle. But he doesn’t kill him. Sad face. Um duh Merle, Rick and Daryl and the dynamic duo and that’s the way it is meant to be so shut your face. GO DARYL. You know you belong with Rick. My world makes sense again.

Okay. Glenn totally has my vote for leader right now. Herschel should just hobble away and let Glenn be angry. Lord knows they need a leader right now. And cue Rick stumbling out of the forest. Point proven.

BETH, YOU ARE IRKSOME. I can’t even register the emotional level of this scene because Beth is so annoying.

Rick :( Come into my arms and everything will be alright, you deranged lunatic. I love you, but this is out of control. Just listen to Herschel, the voice of reason. WAIT. Withdraw that statement. Glenn is not out of control and he could be a majestic leader!!! Not like Rick was, but I believe in the boy. Rick is talking about his problems?! THE LEADER I KNOW IS COMING BACK TO US! Oops spoke too soon again…

Me no likey Axel plus Carol. She loves Daryl, just like…..HOLY MOTHER F*&$!!!!! WHO DID THE GOVERNOR JUST SHOOT. WHAT. I CANNOT. JSKJFSKJBHOJSBFOISUHFOIUHSFKJSKJHDISHD. WHAT IS LIFE OMG.

OMG IF ANYONE DIES> IF RICK DIES.. IC ANOOT EVEN TYP E RIGHT NOW THI SI SO INTENSE. I AM SHAKING. THIS IS MY NIGHT MARE. I CANNOT BREATHE. I AM CRYING. AND WHO DA FUQ IS THIS NOW. DEAR JESUS THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR MY HEART TO HANDLE. NO NOT WALKERS. THIS IS PSYCHOTIC. I CANNOT HANDLE THIS. MY HTOUGHTS ARE UNREADABLE. DEAR LORD. HELP ME. LKJBSLFJHDBLSDNBV:LFKMSNVK:SDJBLSDJHBFLSDKJFBLSDKJFb. NO RICK!!! DARYL. DARYL. SAVING RICK. I CNANOT. BUT THE WALKERS. I AM DECEASED. Well that was a shocking turn of events.

WHAT IN THE ACTUAL F JUST HAPPENED. MY MIND HAS BEEN BOGGLED. 

TEAM RICK: DARYL IS BACK! RICK MIGHT BE BACK! EVERYONE IS ALIVE! One teensy problem: Mr. Psycho Pants aka the Governor.

TEAM WOODSBURY: Andrea is still alive. Sadly.

TEAM ZOMBIE: RAMPAGING AROUND LIKE THEY SHOULD BE.

FAVOURITE MOMENT: The look Daryl gives Rick after he saves him with an arrow to the brain. I cried tears of pure joy.
