First time I've ever gotten this message on youtube

"This video contains content from Turner CNN, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."

I wonder when the day will be when all american videos on all sites will be blocked :(

Does anyone else try to match the colour of their clothes to the hanger they are on? As in, pink shirt on pink hanger. Or is it just me?

Definition of class by Laura D

If you are middle class, you are invited to my dinner party.

If you are working class, you're coming to my house for your tea.

Geisha Girl, Laura D

As many of you who follow my photos know, I have a new costume! I'm a Tokyo Pop Princess!

Now I just have to learn to speak Japanese...damn, why did I learn Mandarin?! Oh, so I can watch things like CJ7 without reading the subtitles. Oh well.

Anyway, I got this costume HERE

I friggin love fancy dress costumes. You people who only dress up at Halloween are weirdos! Okay, I've said my piece...

BTW, look out for a new youtube video coming pretty soon, maybe it'll relate to this somehow... :D
(relate to the costume...not to weirdos!)

Atmosfear - The Harbingers

Anyone else remember this game? (VHS board game)

Bud brought it down from the loft today. In the game you have to write down your fears and put it in this little cauldren thing, so I was expecting to see my fears but they weren't there! As if the game isn't spooky enough without a list of your fears disappearing!

I remember I always used to be "Hellin the Poltergeist", she looks like this:

I was always scared of this game, and quite rightly! The guy on the video who tells you what to do is scary as hell and I didn't enjoy writing down the word "spiders" to put in the cauldren.

When I looked through the whole box today (for the first time in probably 10 years!) I realized, you know what? This game isn't for children! (even though I played it as an 8yr old). For instance, here is the description of the character I would always choose:

Yes, that's right. Quote, "Hellin was an infant trouble-maker who once threw a temper tantrum so violent, it caused an aneurysm in her brain and she died." I do remember wondering if that could actually happen and being scared it would happen to me!

Ahh, anyway...the good old days...pretending you are a dead infant who throws things around the room :D

Well, we only have 2 VHS board games, so it's either play this or play "A Klingon Challenge"

You have no idea how many times I experienced bij. Even when I wasn't playing the game...I would experience BIJ.

The Moon

Mark this day down in your diaries, it's the first ever....Laura D....non-rhyming poem!

Get ready...

Here it comes...

"The moon is low
As if trying
To peer in my window
Grabbing my attention
Past the blinds"

And there we have it. As a person who says things with the intention of hearing laughter after I've said them, it was hard not to write at the end of this poem "Eff off moon!" But for now, it is a somewhat serious poem. For now...

Has anyone else noticed that Wikipedia stole their name from Will Smith?

That's wiki wild wild west.

I think Will Smith is owed some royalties!

We had no gas and no electricity and no water in the house. I was freezing, not to mention thirsty! We only had 3 bottles of water so had to conserve it.

I wore about 10 layers of clothes. And still am today btw, since there is still no gas!

Here are some photos I took yesterday...

Bud said it looked romantic with all the candles, I said it looks more like a seance. "If there's anybody there, make a noise." "I think I just heard somethin! I know what I heard!"

Okay, I'll go now and attempt to fry an egg using a bicycle powered hair dryer...

Scarf Dog

I went through the park today but there were no people. Just a lonesome little dog.
But this dog was different from the rest. For it wore a blue checkered scarf. I ran after the dog.
Wanting to know it's secret. How it got it's scarf checkered. Cause I wanted to do the same to mine. 
But the dog got away. 
I've seen many dogs since then but none that dared to wear a scarf.

Written and drawn by Laura D! Yeah boy! Bet you've never heard a more poignant story than that!
