Dangerous Toys

I read an article about the most dangerous toys ever. And I had one of them! Sky dancers! They were amazing, and yes I remember being hit in the face by them a couple times but they were fun!

I also remember I had Barbie perfume when I was like 7yrs old, and saw on tv that they had recalled and banned it cause children were drinking it. And I remember thinking how cool it was that I have one of the few that are left :D

My Camera Is Broken!

Sad days. So I'm processing photos from old shoots...

This is called "creating a buzz", yet to see if it works.

Panorama

I find Panorama to be the most mis-informed show that acts like it's informed.

My Dinner From Last Night

Pasta and broccoli with Red Leicester cheese and Italian seasonings.

Made by me!

Was very tasty, in case you wanted to know.

Step by Step Guide To Advent Calendars

 The numbers are always jumbled, find today's number!

 Look at the nice photo inside
 Tear open the foil

 Have a look at the pattern on the chocolate, then eat!

You may now leave the door open or close it back up. I like closing it back up cause then it's harder to find the other numbers on other days :D

BTW that is my Toy Story advent calendar. Which one do you have?

A Tease

Warning: I have not made this dinner before....it may turn out ugly looking.

Taking Photos In The Snow Yesterday

So yesterday, I went outside to take photos in the lovely snow....with a full blown head cold, I might add. Oh, and it was -5c out there too. Can I get some points for courage or something like that?

Anyway, here's a photo from the shoot....

You can't tell in the photos, but my cold made me keep sneezing and my eyes were like 2 glazed over pieces of ham.

...Does that ham line makes sense?

I was also being heckled with the word "Hypothermia!"

1st of December!

It's officially Christmas time! Yay :D

If you'll notice, I have changed my blog banner in celebration of the month. Enjoy, as it may change to another Xmassy banner.

Later today I'll be posting about my experience in the snow yesterday! So stay tuned...

Envelopes

If one more person says they or their company is "pushing the envelope" I'm gonna punch them.

Can someone explain to me why it's okay to be an envelope pusher and not a pencil pusher?!

Anyway....

Snowcat

It started snowing tonight! Very Xmassy!

So at 1am, I ventured out into the darkness to create something not as cheesy as a snowman....a snowCAT!




And as if I couldn't get any girlier, I made the whiskers by using hair pins and the eyes I painted on with nail polish.

Here's a photo of me making it, crouched over in the dark like a weirdo...

I Just Realized This

On the news at the end of TSA reports, they always say that, "still, 4 in 5 Americans are okay with the scanners and pat downs".

I just researched how many Americans own passports. Answer: Around 20%

In case you are not good with numbers, that is 1 in 5.

So the 4 in 5 Americans are the ones who can't even travel on a plane!

An Apology

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to Americans for all the annoying people the UK has sent there. The list is as follows and will definitely be added to:
  1. Jamie Oliver
  2. Gordon Ramsey
  3. Piers Morgan (The guy who will take over from Larry King, I apologize in advance for this guy)
  4. Simon Cowell
  5. Anne Robinson
  6. Those Super Nanny People
Now it's your turn. Thanks.

Bloopers from "Laura D Says Something"

I have to warn you, this is the most amount of bloopers I've ever done for just one line and it involves much hysteria....

video
btw, that noise in the background is the rain.

FACT

If anyone was wondering where all the grapes at ITV went on Wednesday, 30th November, 2005....I ate them all.

Just a fact, that's all. I ate all their grapes. And I'm damned proud of it.

San Francisco Bans Happy Meals

So now when a family makes a trip to McDonalds, the child will be forced to order a Big Mac Meal instead. What an interesting way to stop child obesity.

Or maybe it's a way to help the economy! Since the parent will have to spend more money on the Big Mac Meal PLUS they'll have to go to a toy shop to buy a toy!

By the way, I'm an adult and I like Happy Meals. It's not just for children you bunch of weirdos!

Ahh, that's off my chest now....

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

I just received this compliment

Your hair is as dark as Coca Cola and you're just as bubbly.


...Then something about me exploding if you shake me too much...I didn't catch that part.

An Xmas Letter?

So I've heard that Americans write letters on Xmas about themselves and send it out to people. I've never done this before and don't know anyone who has, so here is my first attempt at it, enjoy:

Dear Everyone,

Ahh, It is Xmas already. This year has been nice.

I'm really great and you should be very jealous of me.

Thank you for your attention,

Laura D

P.S. My Xmas will be better than yours.


Did I do it right? :D I think I did.

Photos From My Trip To The Genesis Planet

Need I say more?

I'm Stage of the Day on Lafango!

Yay! Here's the proof....


I feel like I should be making some sort of acceptance speech now :D

Someone asked me on flickr, "Why lafango? I don't get it" And this is the answer! In your face!

Ahh, anyway....see my new photos HERE

An Account of Bonfire Night

So yesterday was bonfire night. We had about 5 fireworks, but no launcher. And decided, we should just push the wooden stick of the firework into the grass just a bit.

As my dad lit the firework, I watch from the door. After a little bit I think, hmm something's not right, shouldn't it have shot up to the sky already? Then I hear my dad shout "Oh, f**k!"

As this happens I see the firework get really bright on the ground and I turn to run away but keep my face towards the firework. Of course I am wanting to see what will happen, I don't want to miss it! So as I run away and watch at the same time, I see the firework go off in the garden, sending sparks and sparkles and guy fawkes night goodness in every direction!

Here is an artist's rendering of what happened.

This is actually the real photo my brother took at the time (he didn't run) but we have added the outer sparks. The yellow in the middle is right before it's about to explode!

No one was hurt.......this time.

Olbermann Uproar

Here is what I'd like to say about Keith being suspended without pay, and what I'd like you to know. I've decided to give you this in bullet points cause they are more fun...

  • Why does Olbermann gets suspended for giving money to Democrats while "Morning Joe" and Pat Buchanan (both of MSNBC) have given money to Republicans?
  • Chris Hayes, who was to fill in for Keith, has refused to do so. I give you kudos Mr Hayes.
  • MSNBC, stop making lame attempts to appear non-liberal / left leaning.
That is all. I don't know what I'm going to watch on my computer now when I get bored, I'm not going to watch someone take over another person's tv show.

I now wait for Keith's next tweet.

Thank you for your attention. Tomorrow I will post about how I almost got exploded from a firework.

This Is What I'll Be Doing

SNOW ON XMAS?

There's 30% chance of snow for me :D

Something is Missing by Laura D

Halloween may have past
But still I'm left aghast
Cause there's something I missed out on
But now the time is gone

I hope this never happens again
Now it's almost time for snowmen
But my brain seems distracted
For something I had thirsted for

Where the hell are my monkey nuts?
Someone didn't have the guts
To buy me my monkey nuts
And damnit, now it's almost time for chestnuts
on fire

By Laura D

A Question

In Jack and the Beanstock, is the giant supposed to be god?

He lives in the clouds, I think he might be god.

Banner Change

As you know, it's no longer Halloween, so I've changed my "Limited Edition Halloween Blog Banner" to something more appropriate.

Though I'll probably change it again when I come up with a better idea for it. So enjoy this one while you can!

Happy Halloween!!

Okay. I haven't been posting the best scary things for the last few days, but ahhh, there is a reason my friends! I have been putting my "scary thoughts", as it were, into writing a spooky halloween segment. I'll be filming it on Friday, and hopefully edit it in time for Halloween day! Yay! :D

(I'll post the segment here and on youtube)

5 Days Til Halloween!!

And your scary thing for today is this:

The E-Harmony adverts! The people in those ads could not be any creepier looking.

I don't think anyone will disagree with me on this one. I'm not even gonna link to it, they are too freaky. You know the ones I'm talking about.

6 Days Til Halloween!!

(Well, yesterday it was)

I'm re-designing my blog banner and it's taking me forever. That's scary for you! Well, kinda.

Sunday, October 24, 2010

7 Days Til Halloween!!

This is your scary thing for today...

Okay, for those of you who don't know, over here we have to pay BBC a fee. That is very annoying for us. And they tell us that they don't do adverts so that's why they should get money from us, bla bla bla. Anyway, I happen to notice on youtube if you watch anything on the BBC's channel they play an advert!!!

Not scary. But annoying. And I had to get that out.

12 Days Til Halloween!!


This is your scary thing for today, cause it certainly scared me!

So it looks likes a nice photo....until you zoom in on my hand and knees. Go ahead do it. See all the blood all over them? That's freaky! I didn't have anything on my hands or knees when I took this photo! And the other photos I took that day it isn't there!! Aaaaaaaaah!!!! Weird!

Scariest Persons In The World

I've been watching a lot of Countdown with Keith Olbermann online recently. And since it is almost Halloween again I've decided to post my little homage to both of these things. This was made last year.

14 Days Til Halloween!!

I hope you sleep as well as me on Halloween night. Here's hoping a witch doesn't cast a spell on you while you sleep and turn you into a zombie. Cause that can happen. Seriously. Look out for that.

Wonga

I wonder if anyone will dress up as the wonga guy for halloween.

I Have No Explanation For This Blurry Photo

Yeah. I bet you thought I didn't have the guts to post that. You know who you are!

15 Days To Halloween!!

And this is me wishing you a Happy Halloween

...in 15 days, that is.

I love my spooky Halloween sign btw :D

A Difference

In other countries, if you say "aye sir" (on a ship or whatever for instance) it is considered very formal. In Scotland, "aye sir" is very informal. You can't say aye to someone higher up than you!

Just so you know.

Friday, October 15, 2010

16 Days Til Halloween!!

Your scary thing for today:

I keep getting recommended demonic eyerolls from youtube! :( Scary!!!

This is American talk

Let's get rid of all of these extra curricular activities and make it part of the curriculum.

(I do not know what this means, this is American talk.)

Updates on my Lafango page

I've been sorting out the photos on my Lafango page, so now the photos are easier to find and in seperate folders.

I'll keep the newest 30 or so photos as the main page, so when you go there you'll see the newest photos. If you want to see older photos you can find them by clicking on another folder, do this:

Click on "Newest Photos" below my profile at the top left of the page, this will bring up a menu of all the folders.

Now go have fun! Not necessarily on my Lafango page but just in general, go have fun!

Now I understand why I read the ingredients on food.

20 Days Til Halloween!!

We shall celebrate today with a Laura D movie review of "Hocus Pocus"!

Story of 3 witches who were sentenced to die 300 years ago and now they are back. I for one am glad they are back, cause if they weren't it'd be a movie about children.

As I recall, from my childhood, the most annoying person in this movie is Max. I remember thinking that guy is so cheesy and annoying and I want to punch him. Later I found out that in the story he has moved to Salem from Los Angeles....now it makes sense why he is cheesy and annoying and I want to punch him.

Anyhow, the witches are clearly the best part of this movie, I love when Winnie shouts on her book "Boooooook!".

By the way, I liked that other kid better when he was turned into an immortal cat.

Best Scene: When the witches brooms are stolen so Mary has to use a hoover to fly!

Worst Scene: Anything with the children. I even prefer the 2 bullies over the cheesy children!

I saw this movie was on the Disney Channel a while ago so I thought I'd watch for a bit. It got to the part where the zombie (whose mouth is stitched closed) uses a knife on his mouth to cut it open and dust and moths fly out. And they cut that scene out! How dare they! Plus it doesn't make any sense cause it's a Disney movie so how can they cut it out on the Disney Channel?! You guys are insane. Let children see the reality of cutting your mouth open to let the moths fly out.

I give this movie 4/5
(It would have gotten 5 but as I mentioned many times...cheesy children!!)

This one isn't particularly scary just cool! The Halloween display is up in TESCO!!!! Yay!

Thursday, October 07, 2010

23 Days Til Halloween!!

And today's scary thing, I have to warn you, is very scary and might make you puke. Let's get to it!

Last year I found out why they only carve pumpkins in America and not here.

October 2009, I decide to carve a pumpkin for the first time in my life. I carve it. All seems to go well. I go to bed that night and when I wake the next day I see this....

I wonder, why the hell is my pumpkin trying to eat a plate? So I take a closer look....

His eyes and mouth are mouldy!! Yuk!!!!

Two days later he looks like this....
That is one disgustingly dead pumpkin.

Why doesn't this happen when they carve pumpkins in American tv shows?!!

Oh well. I shall not be carving another this year.

Watch me carve it last year!

A Cool Photo Of Me!

I think this may be one of the few photos that represents how small I am in life, that's why it's cool!

I had no idea if the sequins would stay on my cheek or not. I used a make up glitter gel to stick them there and luckily for me it worked! Yay!

Interested in where I found the sequins? Once upon a time, my cousin gave me a little pouch with glitter and sequins inside and a note that read thus...

"Pixie Dust - There comes a time when everyone has to grow up. The Pixie Dust helps to lengthen your childhood and stop you growing up. All you have to do is....BELIEVE!"

And there we have it. Magic Pixie Dust stuck to my cheek.

Here's the photo I spoke of earlier! It's cool! :D
