Disney Princesses Question

Why isn't Nala considered a Disney Princess?? Is it cause she's a lion?! THIS AIN'T FAIR.

Let's start a petition!!

I'm A Bespectacled Fellow Now

Yes! Since I haven't mentioned it yet, I got my first ever pair of (real not prop) glasses. So now I can pretend to be smart and all.

Crayola Gear and a Neopet

My brand new crayola gear!! I will be keeping the yellow felt tip 
far away from the black.

Crayola tower of crayons! As you can see, these have been
used before.

And here is my first drawing using the pens and pencils.
It's a Meerca!!!
Oh the nostalgia.

Update! Edgar Allan Poe, Earthquakes and More!

I will do this post in my favourite form...BULLET POINTS! Pkaow, pkaow! (bullet shots)
Onto the update!

  • There is someone that hasn't been formally introduced to the blogosphere yet. So now, grab your cameras, as I introduce my newest friend...the one, the only...
Edgar Allan Poe!
 Yes, he's a hamster.
  • Yesterday, I experienced my very first earthquake!! Here's how it went down. Middle of the night I feel the bed shaking, and in my Neverland state (that place between sleep and awake) I figure maybe Edgar is running so fast on his wheel that he's shaking the whole entire bed. I go back to sleep and find out the next morning there was a 6.0 magnitude earthquake! My first ever, yay! Not as good as a ride on the teacups though.
  • I think donkeys are underrated.
No finer way to finish off a blogpost than with a poem! So here we go, don't hold your breath but you might want to anyway:

17 kangaroos
Had 17 didgeridoos
Each played a tune
Around about noon
While the rest danced around and boxed

By Laura D

Yeah, that's right I used a hashtag in a poem, deal with it.

Thanks for reading chaps and chapettes!

LD's Mini Review of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"

First things first, from here on we will call the movie "Monkey Island". Much less scary that way!

Okay, onto the review!

I learned a lesson from "Monkey Island" and it was the following...(listen up kids! It's school time!)...

The Lesson I Learned: Humans are idiots. Also "Ape. Not. Kill. Ape".

It's a similar lesson I learned from Animal Farm...

"4 Legs Good, 2 Legs Bad"

Also, I'm not communist. Although I do enjoy the occasional Chinese TV show.

 Oh yeah, please ignore this Chinese movie I starred in...


That roughly translates (in monkey terms) to: "More fun than a barrel of monkeys going over Niagara Falls! And twice as scary!"

Fishy Fish

I've heard tons of Americans, say the following sentence...

"I don't like fish that's too fishy."

And every single time I think...WHAT!

That's like saying "I don't like hotdogs that are too hotdoggy" or "I don't like comedy that's too funny".

Bizarre. Anyway, go on with your day, chaps!

Gardening Catalogues Are Fun

At last!! I've always wanted to confuse cats, and now I CAN!

I need to get the hamster union on the phone. This is clearly copyright infringement of the famous hamster ball. Tut tut tut.

This guy ain't taking none-a your sh**.

 And I leave you with this lovely lady, who is apparently departing a morgue.

Good day.

....I said GOOD DAY!

"X-Men: Days Of Future Past" Review

I ate a very tasty sandwich during this movie...

...oh! Also, Picard floats about on a wee mad wheelchair.

Thus, concludes my review of "X-Men: Darts of Future Farts" (original title, by the way)

I give that sandwich: 7/10

It's LD!!!

I believe they call 'em selfies. That's not what I call 'em tho. I call 'em "Pictures ay masel", but then again am Scottish. So you can call 'em selfies. fact you can't, cause they're not pictures of you.

After Shower Temporary Tattoo

C'mon we all know we're hearing this song right now...

Go to 0.23 if you are impatient ;D

Getting Old

You know those Time Life adverts (commercials) that come on late at night? "Get the entire box set of Hogan's Heroes", and other old timey shows like that? Sometimes it's "get this album of 50's rock n' roll!". Well for the first time EVER, I've just seen one of those adverts aimed at my generation. And this was it...

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!! So this means I am officially OLD. What's worse though is....I WANT IT!! Look! Free Red Ranger and all!!

Reasons To Hate Spiderman (And Spiderman Toys)

So on Friday I got myself a Happy Meal. Just look at that, it's rare you
take a picture of your Micky D's and have it ACTUALLY look good.
So just look at that for a minute.
(Apple slices not pictured, as they angered me so much
I didn't even take them out the bag)

Okay, that's enough staring, boys and girls.  As we all know the best(ish) part of a Happy Meal is the toy. I received a Spiderman toy! .....I do not like Spiderman. I have done many posts on this but we'll not go into that right now*.

Here he is in all his glory...

He's like one of those dreidels. Spins about like a maniac. My question is: How the HELL does that help him defeat his enemies??!! Surely that would hinder the whole process. We all know Batman is the greatest super hero of all. Now let me ask you...have you ever...EVEN ONCE...seen Batman spin around in circles? I think not. And I think I've made my point here.

...One would think that's where the story ends. But alas! You would be incorrect mon freres and soeurs. (ma soeurs??) Anyway, that night, I brought Spidey boy home with me...and as I went to shower, there was a spider in the bath!!!

I thought nothing of it. As would be normal.

But then...2 nights later. I'm in bed, "hmm...somethings tickling my arm..must be my hair", at this point I remember I had put my hair UP. But thought nothing of it.

...9 seconds later, another tickle. "Hmm, that's weird, let me scratch it" As I move my hand to scratch my upper arm (you know, where my huge muscles are) I turn my head and simultaenously JUMP OUT OF THE BED.......BACKWARDS!

A black spider was crawling up my arm. MY NAKED ARM. Eeeeeuuuuccchhhh!! (Scottish term, that is)

Both of these times, my lovely husband came to the rescue. He's so lovely. He kills for me, you know. It's like Goodfellas, but with spiders.

Anyhoo, getting to the point. After all these incidents, for a few days I had been noticing a spider in the corner of the bathroom. But I didn't want to keep looking like a sissy. So I said nothing. "I don't need to go into that corner anyway, you can have it, Mr Spider! It's all yours!"

And then today, husband goes to the bathroom, comes back, grabs a lighter, says "There's a black widow in there". The same spider I'd been seeing all those days!!! I shoulda just screamed like with all the other spiders! But oh no, I didn't want to be a sissy.

Jeez oh. I give ONE spider ONE chance ONE time in all my life!!! And this is what happens. NEVER AGAIN! Freakin' spiders.

So in conclusion, I blame that Spiderman toy. He was luring all his friends into my flat. He is in the bin now.

Tonight, my very thoughtful husband walked by some bins...and saw a tricycle...


Check out that super cool Hello Kitty tattoo, lads! Also ignore the distortion of the phone making my head and legs huge. I mean my head is big but not Keith Olbermann big. Jeez Oh.

Alright, who wants to get on the back? I'll drive you round the block, free of charge!
