So, if you’re wondering where I disappeared off to… You can now find me over here: Carpe F*****g Diem ;)

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone’s having a great Easter weekend. Mine’s been quite nice so far, though I only got an egg from my friend – but that was quite enough. For the rest of the family, nephew Viggo was getting all the loot! Which is as it should be, I suspect.

 

"Imma take this egg and run..."

“Imma take this egg and run…”

 

In my town there’s a local tradition where the kids will draw little drawings on a piece of paper, then fold it into a letter and stuff some candy into it. Then they’ll go to each other’s houses and toss it inside while yelling “Happy Easter”, and run off. Viggo, naturally, is too young for this tradition – but my friend and her kids came with a couple of letters for him anyway.

 

"A letter? For me?"

“A letter? For me?”

 

Them lootz!

Them lootz!

 

Why waste time with taking the wrapping off when you can just bite right into it?

Clothing Ads… or?

I realise the article I’m about to link to is old, but I only just found it myself, and I don’t actually think they’ve gotten any better since.

There’s this clothing company called American Apparel, and their ads are incredibly sexist and definitely play on the “sex sells” idea. When I saw the images I was quite amazed. I mean, are we really supposed to see clothes in these photos and want to buy them?

All I can see are images that look like they were made for your significant other, and then someone got their dirty hands on them. It’s not what I would expect from an ad for a clothing company, that’s for sure.

Here, have a look yourself!

Thoughts on a name…

So, my sister asked me to put of a few suggestions for a pen name, so here are a few that I’ve put together. Some, that I liked I already had to take off the list because their domains were already in use. Does anyone like any of these names?

Emily Morant

Emily Mordan

Emily Mordon

Emily Morgans

Elisabeth Stark

Kim E Straw

Elizabeth Stroud

Busy Week

It’s been a fairly busy week, so I haven’t really had the time (or energy) to write much. So, what’s happened since last time?

  • My brother and his girlfriend broke up, so she and my adorable little nephew will be moving out soon :(
  • Molly (dog nr 2) has an ear infection and I had to take her to the vet yesterday. She now has to have antibiotics twice a day for two weeks, and then we need to go back to check that her ears aren’t permanently damaged.
  • I bought a new couch! (Well a used one, but new for me!) No photo yet though, since my place is a mess. Old couch is still here, so I’ve just had to bunch everything together all over the place. It’s almost like living in a maze of furniture!

Other than that I’m going a little bit crazy because of the other brother that lives with me since early December. He got a job at the end of January, and he’s just not taking it seriously enough in my eyes. In the mornings he barely makes it up, and I usually have to chase him out of bed and drive him to work for him to get there. Today, I have a day off from my course and didn’t need to get up in the morning, so I didn’t. Guess what? He’s still lying in bed sleeping… (Time when writing this: 1.58 pm.)

I always have Fridays off, and the other weeks I’ve actually set my alarm to go wake up him and make sure he gets to work. But I decided to stop coddling him. He’s supposed to be a working adult now, and needs to learn to act as one. So I told him he had to get up and to work himself. That worked out great…

Random Thoughts

It took nearly two weeks, but I’m finally on the mend. At one point I swear I was about to go insane. Night to Tuesday the universe decided that having a cold and a fever wasn’t enough, and also gifted me with stomach flu. Yep. The full package. Ever tried coughing and heaving at the same time? Don’t.

Anyway, the fever spiked at 39 degrees (102.2 F) to finally subside and is now nearly gone. Fingers crossed that it remains gone. *desperate finger twitching* Today I even plan to eat solid food! Yeah!

I did end up stopping my WoW blog, but part of me really misses it. There are things I want to write about, but I know that I seldom get around to actually doing it. Also, there are often things I want to write, but don’t feel that I can, since it’s venting, and I don’t want to offend people I play with. At times I wish I’d made my blog anonymous. Heck, at times I still want to create a new WoW blog, but with no attachment to my in-game characters. But having to get a new readership? I don’t know.. so much work.

Speaking of blogs, I really do want to get started on my writing blog. I just need to get through the planning stages. And decision making. Me and decisions… Not always a good combination!

Things to decide:

1) Use an author name as the name of the blog, or something catchy as a title?

2) Which universe to set the stories in, or have several? Looking at my various stories and universes at the moment to see if I can somehow consolidate them into something manageable.

3) If I use an author name, what should I pick? I always just simply wanted Emily Morgan, but since the domain emilymorgan.com is taken, I feel that I should pick something else. Because, yes, I want a .com domain. But do I keep the name Emily and just find another surname, or do I switch it completely?

4) I’m sure there’s more to decide, I just can’t think of anything yet. I blame the whole “being sick for nearly two weeks” for my lack of a thought process right now.

Going a little crazy

So, I’ve been sick for about a week now. Coughing, fever, sore throat.. you name it. So I’m going a little crazy. Also, someone linked to a Chibi maker at one point, and I’ve been going a little crazy with that as well… Oops?

Best in a long time!

First off; a warning that this post contains a big SPOILER for the TV-show NEW GIRL. So if you’re watching that show and you’re not up to date, or planning to watch it, stop reading now! Go away! If you have no intention of ever seeing it, don’t care about spoilers, or have already seen it.. Feel free to continue reading.

Now… I’ve started watching the show myself recently, and finally got caught up to date with the episodes. One of the last episodes I saw had a kiss between two of the main characters that I’ve just been waiting for to happen since pretty much the first episode. Not just that, but I will admit that to me, this was one of the best kisses I’ve seen in a show/film for quite some time!

I even had to go and find the clip on Youtube!

If you want to watch it, you should know that Nick and Jess are roommates (together with two other guys), and this is them walking to their rooms at night. Earlier that night they were all playing a drinking game, and Nick and Jess was meant to have kissed – but Nick managed to escape (through a window!). After blurting out “Not like this”, regarding why he didn’t want to kiss her, and refusing to explain what he meant.

Now excuse me while I go off to make “SQUEEE” noises…

Extreme Make-Over: Closet Edition

A couple of years back I got myself a couple of large, white closets from IKEA (where else?). They’re very handy and useful with lots of different kind of shelves and drawers that you can buy for them, but they’re quite boring to look at.

So… I gave them a make-over! They look much nicer now (in my opinion).
