*update: this blog post REALLY got away from me at the end :3 you can ignore everything after the picture of the card -_-
I made a thing.
Here it is.
I should've taken a better picture.
But I'm too tired to care.
Even making this blog post is exhausting.
The Sister and I spent most of the day cooking meals for the upcoming week (so we don't have to do it when we get home from work) and also trying our hands at making granola and trail mix! (respectively)
All of my energy went into cooking and trail mix and ....cursing as I made this card.
The sister said, "You sound like your old crafting self!" and I must admit I got pretty creative with swear word combos. Might've levelled up, if I do say so myself. Though I'd be the only judge so I could be biased.
Anyway. Punchline: I'm tired.
And kinda cranky. I want to drink more tea but my tea is really caffeinated and if I drink stimulant tea I'll be too wired to sleep and I gotta get up at 5 am tomorrow so I can't drink tea and life is haaaaard.
I have such problems =P
I'm also pretty cranky because I don't like this card all too much but whatever. J'ai fini et voila.
This card was based off of The Card Concept's Challenge #10 which asked for a coffee theme, hence the coffee rings, and Color Throwdown's Challenge #239 which inspired the colours. I'm gonna say that the card falls best under the "Clean & Layered" category. ("clean" if you ignore the coffee rings!)
OMG DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON BUFFY BTW I HAVE SO MANY THOUGHTS AND THEY MAKE ME WANT TO YELL WITH HAPPINESS AND AWE AND ANGER AND SADNESS AND BUFFY IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL AND I LOVE HER AND SHE IS SO GREAT BUT ALSO SEASON ONE BUFFY IS KINDA STUPID AND THEY WERE SO MEAN TO HER IN SEASON SIX AND OMG SO MANY THINGS.
I think I'll have to make a proper blog post about my thoughts on Buffy (with additional comments by KhaleesiPaula because we had a Skype date today and we discussed, among other things, at some length Buffy and Angel [the shows and the characters] and there are so many things and especially my observation that The Vampire Diaries MUST HAVE BEEN inspired by Buffy Season 2.
Main point of that paragraph of rambling insanity: BUFFY AND ANGEL ARE ENDGAME AND NO ONE WILL CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE AND OMG JOSS WHEDON WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO ME.
Speaking of...I am still not over The Amazing Spiderman 2.
It's still a relatively new movie and this is a card post so obviously I won't say anything spoiler-y. It's just that sometimes I find myself thinking about the movie (randomly, like on the bus on my way home, when I'm writing my to-do lists, while I craft, while I'm watching commercials) and IT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO SCREAM.
If you're wondering why I have so many strong feelings towards Spiderman it's because as a child I was MADLY in love with Peter Parker (he was a damn good-looking cartoon, what can I say. I'm not ashamed to admit it) and I was convinced that I was going to marry him when I was older. Not the cartoon Peter Parker exactly, but the "real" human-equivalent Peter Parker, because CartoonPeterParker was destined to be with CartoonMaryJane (this was regular Spiderman, not The Amazing Spiderman, they're 2 different series, try not to get confused but it's confusing) and omg don't even get me started on how the cartoon series ended BECAUSE FOX RUINS LIVES AND ENDED THE SERIES BEFORE THEY COULD RESOLVE MARYJANE FALLING INTO THE GREEN GOBLIN'S VORTEX AND OMG IT HURTS TO THINK ABOUT THOSE EPISODES.
...Anyway. I was a really weird kid. I don't understand how I managed to function in society and survive life with the back-ass-wards thinking I had when it came to being in love with cartoons. I feel like I should totally talk to a psychologist or something about all these thoughts I used to have as a kid and see what they'd have to say. I think that'd be a laugh.
But yeah. Bed-time!!
GAME OF THRONNNEEESSSS!!! I don't want the season to end :'( It just started!!!
This happens every year. When GoT is on it is the 10 greatest, most intense, what-the-front-door??? weeks of life and suddenly POOF I have to wait a whole year again. At least this year I'll have crafting to keep me busy :)
