Halloween Costume Ideas

If you're anything like me, you have absolutely no money for a costume this year. But who buys costumes anyways? Here are some ideas for easy costumes that are most likely just laying in your closet waiting for you!
1. Morrissey
This one is a piece of a cake. Just get a blue/white/pink/awesome button up shirt, button it up half way (ladies wear some coverage underneath), then accessorize with a bunch of gaudy necklaces. Then just wear some faded loose jeans, bobby-pin or style your hair to make that perfect Morrissey poof, and you're good to go!
Also, don't forget to pin some flowers to your butt!


2. The Lobotomist
What could be more frightening than a doctor eager and willing to jam an ice pic into you eye socket? Go as Walter Freeman this Halloween by just wearing a tweed vest and pants with a nice tie and something that resembles a doctor's coat! Wear some round glasses if you got 'em, and the most important accessory is your ice pic!

Get a nice stick on mus…

How to be a Liberal Arts major and not give a f*ck what anyone has to say about it.

While we women of dreary fashion and sarcastic humor are ritually confronted with daily misgivings as to what in the world we want to be when we "grow up", the decision eventually comes to "Well, I want to do well in school, and I'll only do well in school if I am studying what I'm interested in. Therefore I will major in [enter whatever major of mutually exclusive yet unexclusive diversity here] and make awesome grades and get into grad school and teach." Well at first I decided to cheat. Anthropology sounded convincing, because it's about humans and culture and has archaeology and everyone has dreamed at least once of brushing dirt off buried artifacts in Egypt with dusty khaki shorts and brown Timberland boots. Then I decided, why not a foreign language? But my creativity wouldn't be as widely utilized. Then, Humanities. But what in the world does that get you in life? So I decided on plain old History. And now, sitting here procrastinating, I h…

Scanning makes the world go round

Buying a scanner has been the best investment I've made in a long time. Now I can scan all my Japanese magazines! There are so many cute pictures I can crop and share. So here's my tumblr: http://15minwithyou.tumblr.com/ where all my pictures will be posted. Some are from magazines, some are instax prints, some might just be whatever I feel like scanning! Check it out <3

Dress up

The Fujifilm Instax 210 camera is in my possession. I'm still working with it, testing the different lighting modes (lighter, darker, normal) as well as the two option focal points. It's an interesting instant film camera, and I love the wide film.

Judas! Would yo like a beverage? Try the mulled wine it's delicious!

When I was a kid, there was no movie I liked more than Mel Brooks' History of the World Part I. Of course as I kid I was innocent and naive, so the dirty jokes splayed throughout this movie flew right over my head. Now, I can watch this movie and truly appreciate it for what it is; a movie that shows us our history as well as remind us that we're just sex-crazed animals. Some people might gawk at this, be disgusted, throw up a little. But then we see the mighty Empress Nyphmo.

When I see her I think of Blanche Devoreaux and Samantha Jones if they had been a ginger Roman Empress. Not only is she gorgeous and sexy, but she knows sex is the only power she holds back in those times ruled by men.
Some awesome quotes:

Nympho: Wine please!
(servant brings the wine)
Servant: Say when.
Nympho: 8:30.

Nympho: Stop!....Could you please step on the same foot at the same time?! MY TITS ARE FALLING OFF!

19 years later...

What's so special about turning 19? Anyone? No? Because there's nothing special about it! I got a tattoo. Woo-hoo, I got three at 18. I got an instant film camera. Woo-hoo, even a 4 year old can take pictures. I'm still in community college. I still work the same horrible job. The only thing 19 brings is the truth; I'm getting older everyday and it sucks. I'd rather be 18 forever. When I tell people that, they're like "Well don't you want to turn 21?" No. I couldn't care less about going out to bars and drinking. I couldn't care less about buying alcohol. I can just go to Canada if I'm feelin' crazy.
19 is how old my ex-best friend was when I first met him. I was 17 at the time. Even then I kept telling him how horrible it must be to be 19. He told me I would change my mind.
Can anyone tell me the benefits of being 19?
