Picture Saturday--- Another couple!

It's been ages since I've done a Picture Saturday, hasn't it?

Here it is: Faramir and Eowyn from the Lord of the Rings trilogy

Also... GOOD NEWS!

Our Video Library finally  got The Avengers back in, so we get to watch that tonight. 

My life is awesome again.

One day I will own these:

My mom found this for free on the side of the road, and seeing as it was lovely and in excellent condition, brought it home. 

Isn't my new armchair bea-U-tiful?

Happiness is a nice armchair. *nod*

Oh, pop on over to Shaylynn's blog... I guest posted there. :)

Now I go to finish listening to Javert and Jean Valjean arguing over whether or not the latter is a thief for life or not. 

God bless!

Some complaining and a few odd pictures...

We've been having internet difficulties.

We switched service providers because the newer one is faster and cheaper than the old one. Which is nice.... But at the moment--while we wait for a router which probably won't arrive until next week--our internet is somewhat sketchy.


So if I've been terrible about commenting, I'm sorry! I will be better when the router arrives. :)

Six Random Facts:

1.) There's something wrong with my mom's computer. The fan must be broken or something, because it sounds just like the T.A.R.D.I.S. when it turns on. No. Joke. She turns it on and I get an almost uncontrollable urge to scream, "Where is he? Where's the Doctor?"

2.) I wish the days would decide what kind of weather they're going to have. It's like 30 degrees in the morning (which is cold when your window has a leak) and then it gets up to like 65 in the afternoon, so it's too cold to wear summer clothes, but then it's too warm to even consider winter clothes.

This displeases me.

4.) I want to get the fourth season of Leverage.

5.) My sister and I are planning to have a friend come over this weekend so that we can let her listen to Les Miserables the whole way through.(I think we usually skip two or three of the nastier songs. Just....... FYI.) The aforementioned friend has only ever heard bits and pieces of it, so we decided that she must hear the whole musical before she watches the movie. (Squeeeee! That movie looks amazing, doesn't it? Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe together? I'm going to be crying so much. Little Fall of Rain, anyone? Javert's Suicide? *sigh*) It ought to be fun.

6.) I love this song. The end. Don't ask why.

7.) Can anyone else totally relate?

Righty! That's about all I have to say on the matter.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway! It ends on October first, peoples.

Until I have an internet connection next time!

God bless

Tag: If I were a........

I've been thinking.

Does anyone else think "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is too long of a word to be of any use whatsoever? Who's going to take the time to say "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" when "splendiferous" will do just as well? 

Call me absurd and lazy, but I  certainly wouldn't take the time to say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious in a conversation. 

              Now, now, Mary. Don't look at me like that. You know it's true.

Ahem. Anyway...
Do you agree....? Or is that just me?

So I saw this over at Cat's blog and thought it was delightful, and therefore decided to do it. Here we go:

If I were a gemstone: I'd be an amethyst, or jade. 
If I were a scent: I'd be lilac. 
If I were a pair of shoes: I'd be dark brown, knee high dress boots. 
If I were the weather: I'd be sunny. And probably pretty windy.
If I were a facial expression: Eh. I'd be.... um.... My expression changes a lot.
If I were a car: I'd be a mini-cooper. (I'd say Land Rover, or Range Rover, but I don't look like those.)
If I were a time of day: I'd be about six in the evening.
If I were a month: I'd be May.
If I were a place: I'd be home.
If I were a liquid: I'd be a cup of coffee.
If I were a taste: I'd be chocolate. (Believe it, people. I am that sweet.)
If I were a sea animal: I'd be...... but I hate sea animals!
If I were a food: I'd be... delicious. *grin*
If I were a color: I'd be dark purple with a hint of grey. 
If I were a musical instrument: I'd be a French horn. Or the human voice. Take your pick.
If I were a flower: I'd be an orange lily. 
If I were a song: I'd be You Are Loved (Don't Give Up) By Josh Groban.
If I were a planet: I'd be Venus? Or Saturn. 
If I were an object: I'd be a purple coloured pencil. 
If I were a fruit: I'd be a peach. Or strawberry.
If I were a sound: I'd be music. 
If I were a day of the week: I'd be Saturday. 

And there you go. You now know me that much better. That was actually quite fun, and it's nice not having to tag other people. If you want to you should do this, it's kind of hard thinking of what you would be in such-and-such a case. 


Since twenty followers came and went, I'm now having a twenty-five follower giveaway! (SQUEEEEEEEE!!!!) I just need to finish getting my stuff together and then things will get awesome around here. Stay tuned, it ought to be fun. :) 

Until next time!
God bless,

"Fingers on lips!"

 I love things that make me laugh. Pictures, songs, movies, people, the Doctor. If you make me laugh, odds are I'll like you.

So when I came across Tim Hawkins...

I didn't fall in love.

But I did become a fan. And this video never fails to crack me up. :)

Never Forget.......

In remembrance of those to died in the attacks of 9/11/01, those who risked their lives to help the trapped and injured, and those who still suffer the losses of 9-11. God bless you all.

This post has no title.

I want all of these T-shirts:

Aren't they awesome?

Which one would you choose? I can't decide. :)

God bless!

I am becoming a Whovian.


This is going to be a Random Facts post. I haven't done one of these in a while.

Six Random Facts:

1.) Sorry I've been rather lax in posting lately. Let's blame it on the fact that I started school this week. I find it most distressingly unfair that in Britain I would already be finished with school--I would have been finished for a year or more. But hey ho, life goes on. And I console myself by repeating that I shall graduate in June. :)


2.) I have been watching entirely too many British shows.

3.) I love Doctor Who. I think I might be the most obsessed in my family. But I've always liked science fiction. I was the girl who loved the original Star Treks.

4.) Because of certain people I know, I tend to refer to soccer as football. And I am unabashedly a Celtics supporter.

5.) Every time I look at a banana, I get the urge to say either, "Excellent source of potassium!" or "I like bananas. Bananas are good." in my best Christopher Eccleston impersonation.

                            *note to self: too much Who-ish-ness.*

6.) This is the latest I have ever posted. The time is 10:40pm.

And there you have it.

God bless!
