It's Okay, Canada!

After I read Cal's post on America and it's flag being taken over by the octopus (see the photo I snatched from his blog... Thanks, Cal!), I noticed at the end that he said nobody ever tried to alter the Canadian flag because they know they would be beaten down with snow shovels and hockey sticks. Well, no more! I have constructed (with the help of a few tentacled pals) a Canadian flag. Cal, I hope you will protect me from the wrath of the Canadians... Here is the American flag first -




And the Canadian one created by me and a few octopus friends -

I have no further word on the subject, by one of my octopus friends, conviently named CALVIN, has one word for you...

The Heath Shirt I Made

UPDATE:
Because my 'design contains text or image that is in violation of an individual's right of celebrity/publicity', I cannot get this shirt. I will have to make a new one.
I've been toying with the idea of making another shirt on www.zazzle.com after I made my Sweeney Todd, Sweeney Todd vs. Jack Sparrow, and Jasper Hale shirts, but I was trying to decide between another Jasper shirt or a Heath shirt. I was very strongly leaning towards Heath, but I had a very good idea for a Jasper... then, smartness struck (and left shortly after)! Here is the Heath shirt I made then ordered (with my own money, of course)!


The front of the shirt, a picture of Heath. LIM = Live in Memory. It has the date of his birth... and his death. Below is a quote from Heath which I love! And, of course, the font is childish because of his playful ways and purple because it was his favorite color. Plus, I LOVE that picture!


The back of the shirt, a collage of Heath photos. Beneath the collage it says 'Wish You Were Here'. 'Wish You Were Here' is a song by Pink Floyds, one of Heath's favorites. They played this, along with a few other favorites of his, at his funeral... but I figured it would go well, since I do wish he was here.

I miss Heath... always will. XD

Okay, you may now applaud. *bow to the left* *bow to the right* *bow to the center* You must adore my creativity, and my stroke of genius that, after it struck me, just kept on going... YAY! Love the shirt, love the man, love life! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Theme Thursday - Buttons

Thanks, Mrsupole! I don't know what I'm supposed to do for buttons! I got all my button pictures from http://www.bunchesofbuttons.com/ (Say it with a button!)! Not trying to endorse this or anything, or whatever the term would be, just letting you know. I chose something from each category.



TEEN IDOL: I prefer to think of the 'J' as Jackson, Johnny, Jackman, Jasper... you get the point.



TV: iCarly is a ridiculously funny show that I enjoy watching.

PATRIOTIC: Yay, America!




BANDS/MUSICIANS: And I prefer to think of THIS one as either Jasper (Jazz is his nickname) or the style of music.

FUNNY: I just HAD to put this Alice in Wonderland one on here. Even though I said I would only do one per category, there's another FUNNY one at the bottom, that I just HAD to post, knowing Cal, along with an animals one that goes along with it.



BABY & BIRTHDAY: I wasn't sure which one I was going to do for BABY & BIRTHDAY... They're mostly newborn baby stuff... but then I saw this, and I thought of my Heath... So, here you go, my tiny unnamed button tribute to my Heath.




SPORTS: I'm not the biggest sports fan (I prefer to either play or watch in person, TV seems more boring for some reason), but I am a Red Sox fan, and this button blinks, so it caught my interest. XD


RELIGIOUS: Okay, so I'm not a very religious person, but I said I would do a button from each category, so here it is - It's like you sneezed! XD


ANIMALS: Save the Ice Bear!


WILD AND CRAZY (from the Button Grabbag): Just for you, Wings!


ACCESSORIZE (Buttons and Pins As Accessories): Pretty in plastic... snap-on plastic buttons, that is! LOL I crack myself up... But, apparently, only myself...

And now, the two I promised you, Cal!

The Funny One



The Animals One

And there you have it! Happy TT (as Brian Miller would say)! Have a super fantastic week! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

YOU ARE SOOOOOOO WELCOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HERE YOU GO! THESE ARE TWO OF THE GREATEST, MOST AMAZING VIDEOS IN THE HISTORY OF HISTORY! I gasped and then struggled with my vocabulary, unable to find the right words. I needed better words. LOL That's not in either of the clips it's a quote from Breaking Dawn that I thought was appropriate for this moment. Although, 'screamed and giggled like a little school girl' might be more appropriate than 'gasped'. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS SOOOOOO MUCH TO MY DAD WHO SENT THE FIRST ONE TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Teehee

My cousin (who shall remain nameless) has posted on Facebook "People You Want On Your Side In A Bar Fight". He chose two people I did - Chuck Norris and Jet Li - and he also put the Irish Mafia - a mafia makes sense - but he has a great dane. Alright? But the reason this is here is his third pick - an octopus! HA! This whole family has one big soft spot for octopi. Do I even need to say your name, Cal? XD

^The Original Post^

Slow Down, Cal!

I came back from a vacation - a week-long vacation, just a week - to find my Google Reader filled to the BRIM with stuff. Of course, Cal helped out a lot. I know, I am blogging WAY to much about Cal... I'm weird. BUT NONETHELESS I had 70 blogs to read from Cal! 70!!!!! I have only posted 73 (now this is the 74th) on this blog, and he had 70!!!!!!!!! LOL Nice job, Cal. Ice Bear approves.

Stain Glass Octopus

Dang it, Cal, everywhere I go I see an octopus and I think of YOU!!!! You and your darn Tentacle Wars. XD! I was at a restaurant called Bosn's Landing where all the windows have a stain glass sea creature, and I saw the octopus. Yes, I did, and I thought of you, and then I thought, "I must have a picture of it to post." I got up and walked over to my dad on the other side of the table (the window was in a different part of the restaurant and I couldn't get the photo from where I was sitting) and asked if I could go take a picture of a window. He knows that all the windows are sea-creature-themed, and he said to me, "It's an octopus, isn't it?" I said, "Yeah, how did you know?" He said, "I just do." Well, I walked over to it, and there was an old couple beneath the window (the window is a normal window with a stain glass thing at the top), so I asked if I could take a picture. They looked at me like I was weird, but they said sure and let me take the picture. It's small and blurry, because I took it on my phone, but I counted the tentacles and there are eight of them. I also ate a piece of my sister-in-law's calamari. I know it's a squid, so it's not the same, but it's a tentacled creature, so I felt the need to tell you. XD

Theme Thursday

Sorry if my Theme Thursday will be a little late this week (I don't know if it will be... This is just a precaution). I will be going on vacation... Try not to miss me TOO much! Instead, enjoy this photo of me kissing a fish in Baltimore. XD Byeeee!


UPDATE:

Theme Thursday this week is shoes. I missed it... awww, even though it's Wednesday, I don't have the time. Byee!

Cal

Okay, Cal. So sorry, but this is totally you.

I was watching Twilight, and there is a scene where Edward is saying what a few people in the room are thinking. He points at four different people, and says, 'Money... Sex... Money... Sex...' and here is where YOU come in, Cal. He points at a guy sitting at a table and says, 'Cat?'. LOL and the funniest part is the guy looks right at the camera and sighs. It's HILARIOUS, and I SO thought of you!

I also thought of you when I saw a Froot Loops commerical with a Froot Octopus. XD

video
(skip to the end to see the cat part) (Via)

The Froot Octopus!



If you go to the Fruit Loops site you can 'Help Toucan Sam get the bowl of Froot Loops cereal to the boat before the fruity aroma reaches the octopus.'

Congrats, Cal! You annoy me, but you're cool. Ice Bear approves of you. =D


ADDED LATER:

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

That is hilarious. I have finally broken through to the mainstream. See, from now on when you think of cats or octopii you will think of me. That is a great memorial for anyone. Thanks for the post. I can't be any more famous! And you have also exposed the evil lurking in my box of Froot Loops. Young Lady you have done many good deeds today.

CAL'S RESPONDING BLOG:



One of the things I love best about my blogging is that I get to meet great people who are not only interesting characters themselves but who recognize the magic that is ME! So thank you Nicole for her latest post about me. She not only exposed my awesomeness to pop culture but exposed the evile octopus lurking in my box of Froot Loops cereal and THAT is a gift to the world.


And so, I return your thanks, Cal, and hope that whenever you see Johnny Depp or whatevs you think of moi! XD

Theme Thursday - Stage!

Wheeee! They chose MY idea for Theme Thursday this week - Stage!

Deep breath. In and out. I peek around the corner through the door - the director, standing there, introducing the audience to himself and the performance. We wait anxiously, fidgeting, whispering to each other. Shhhh! We don't want to shhhh.... We're too nervous. Shhhh!!! Fine, whatever. We shuffle around, fixing our costumes, flexing and unflexing our fingers. Pulling at little threads. All of a sudden, the lights go out. The director walks by - Break a Leg, he tells us. Yeah, we'll try, we respond uncertainly. The stage manager pushes us out - we stumble into each other, but file onto the stage. Taking our places in the dark - nervous, shifting, not supposed to move. The music starts playing - how did they find such great music? It fits well.

I lean onto my prop, and stare into the eyes of the actor next to me. He stares back and smiles reassuringly. I smile, and he nods slightly. The music ends and the spotlight hits the actor stumbling across the stage and the actress narrating his actions. He trips off the stage and the lights all turn on. Noise erupts from all around me - the actor staring into my eyes converses with those around him, and the girl next to him gazes at him longingly. I sigh, and smack my cane on the ground. Nobody looks, just as we rehearsed. They are acting like animals! I yell at them, and smack my cane again. They look up at me, noise ceased. I take a deep breath, and begin my speech.

They look at me, giving me hints under their breath as to slow down, speak up, or if I forget something. Every once in a while, there is a noise, and I snap them a look, just as we rehearsed. Did I forget my glasses? I did. Oh. My speech inspires the characters - noises explode out of them every once in a while, and I must silence them, just as we rehearsed. My speech ends, and I sing. I walk around them, singing to them, and then - a gunshot. We scramble back to our places to sleep - to hide. Can my character make it? Nope - my character dies. That's unfortunate - too bad for them.

I skitter off the stage for my costume change - not enough people for all these characters, some people need more than one. I need three, apparently. I rip off my costume and dress into a new ensemble. The makeup artists rush at me - There you are! Where were you? We've been waiting! - and attack me with various uncomfortable products. I pull on my boots, strap on my hat, grab my prop and rush to the back of the theater. The others are waiting - all but one. Where is she? She has an even worse costume change - rough. She suddenly scrambles around the corner and takes her place. We watch for our cue, then rush into the theater, shouting, props flailing, guns blazing, just as we rehearsed. Attacking the characters I was just inspiring. What a strange twist. The characters turn on us - we run, screaming, from the theater.

I dart down the hall and change into my final costume. The makeup artists are back - There you are! Where were you? We've been waiting! - and try to take all the two or three layers of makeup I have on, off. We're running out of time, and we give up. Just pile on another layer or two - have fun washing this off later! Thanks, replied dryly. Sighing, trying to calm myself. Makeup piled on my face - I don't even look human. Plan 9 from Outer Space, anyone? I tie up my boots, pull on a new hat - I love this hat -, set up my suspenders - I still wear those - and start running back down the hall once more. People cheering - part of the show. We rehearsed this. I stop and cheer with them, then continue on my way. Running through my lines... A whisper. Your on soon... go now!

I stumble into the theater and the spotlight hits me. I stroll down the aisle, shouting the lines for all to hear. I stomp up the stairs, onto the stage, and pace around, reciting the words just as we rehearsed. A voice shouts from backstage - a response to a question my character asked. Did I forget a line? Did I forget a word? I think I did... Darn. My solo stage performance coming to a close, I walk to the spot where I am supposed to end my speech - just as I practiced - and the other actors walk on stage. The characters are supposed to be at a formal gathering - ties, tuxes, dresses, the works. I get a wine glass handed to me - iced tea is inside. Yuck. Glad I don't have to drink this. We go through our lines and raise our glasses. We fall back and converse, just as we rehearsed. The actor next to me downs his iced tea and we trade glasses. Downs that one, too. Thirsty much? Stage lights are hot - too much time on stage. I get it.

We walk off the stage to a round of applause - all of a sudden, the lights are on. That's not supposed to happen. We freeze mid-stride and look at the audience. We didn't rehearse this! What do we do now? We stop and talk to each other as the characters - nothing happened. The lights go off. Sigh of relief. We rush off the stage - back into our lines outside the door. New music starts - we go out onto the stage and bow, just as we rehearsed. Screaming when our favorites come out and bow - hilarious! Everyone looks to me, and I present the crew. They follow suit - just as we rehearsed. We run out of things to do, and it ends.

We scream and clap and jump up and down. Running around the stage, high-fiving, hugging random people. Who are you? Oh well! I hug the actor, the actress, and we rush off the stage. Running around backstage, shouting, screaming. Then we sit down, and it sinks in. We're done here. All the months of planning, our first show out of three over. Well, we'll just do this again tomorrow. And the next day. One day, we'll give gifts to the directors. And a birthday song for an actress. We change, wash our faces - ugh, too much makeup, I'll need 20 showers to get all this off. We realize - it's over. We say our good-byes, our 'See you tomorrows!'. We go off our separate ways, just to repeat the process, perhaps in a better way, the next day.

Just as we rehearsed.

Theme Thursday - Ghost! Eep!

Ghost.
A soul haunting around you - a memory floating about. The dead ones are the ghosts. Sometimes, the live ones remain the ghost of what could've been. A soul hovers down a hallway, a ghost. Do you believe in ghosts? I certainly do. Do you believe in ghosts? I certainly don't. Believing makes all the difference with souls. But not the memory. Not the live ghost, either. I don't make any sense, do I? Too bad. The ghost of my good writing and making sense is haunting far away, in the very corners of my mind. It's summer vacation - really, can you blame me? Ghosts haunting corridors, floating down stairwells, spooking the animals. Scaring the children. These very ghosts were once people like you or I. What makes them want to scare? What makes us afraid? If the ghost of a loved one were to come back and say 'Boo', would you fear them? You knew them. What would make you fear them now? Would you be relieved they are back, or terrified at their arrival? Would you run screaming, or hug their ghostly figures? The paranormal surrounds us, whether you believe in it or not, whether a ghost or an alien or whatever it is is there. A ghost floats by - do you notice? Do you care? Do you think about it? You might be a ghost someday - drifting down the hall. Spooking people. Do you want people to fear you? Think about the answer to that. You see a ghost, what do you do?
What would you do if you saw a ghost?

(sorry, I had to)

What would you do?

I SAW PUBLIC ENEMIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMJ I SAW PUBLIC ENEMIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I can't tell you anything about the movie since I don't want to give anything away. But let me tell this to you - that was one of the GREATEST movies I have ever seen, I would see it again in a second. I believe a good film has everything to do with the skills of the cast, the talent of the director, the interest of the plot, the draw of the storyline, and the effectiveness of the details and special effects, and this movie has all these things. And, of course, I always enjoy movies that spark my interest, and movies like this one about that specific time period always spark my interest. Definitely two thumbs up, A+, all those great ratings. Plus, I know this matters to many, Ice Bear approves. Ice Bear approves so very much. If the thought even crosses your mind (Hmm... Should I see Public Enemies?) the answer is yes, always yes. A definite must-see, see this movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Not a question, see the movie.


^The best of the posters, the best character in the movie, and the best actor in the movie, he did a phenomenal job.^



^His role was smaller than I thought, but a good role and a good job nonetheless.^



^ She's pretty, and a great actress. ^

Happy Fourth of July!

Two Videos I Have Watched Alot Recently!

video video

Thanks So Much!

Whenever I post something, I usually get comments. Three people that always give me positive feedback are Wings, Cal, and Brian Miller. You guys TOTALLY ROCK! Let me share a few of their comments with you:
Cal:


Yeah, Cal is weird, but he's got long paragraphs on how awesome I am!

Wings:

Brian Miller:

Brian Miller always has something strange to say and something interesting to tell me!

Like I said before, thanks alot, guys! Your comments always make me smile!

Theme Thursday - Funky!

Ooh, a psychedelic theme this week! I know that this is going to seem so boring and repetitive and downright stupid (since I'm saying it, because I didn't really pay that much attention to him), but the definiton of funky (according to http://www.dictionary.com/) is characterized by originality and modishness. The person everyone is thinking of now that is characterized by their originality and modishness is, of course, Michael Jackson. I didn't really pay that much attention to him when he was alive, but now that he's gone, I started listening to his music and I realized how good it really is. My brother is teasing me for listening to him now. "You didn't even care before he died!" Yeah, I know that. That doesn't forbid me from listening to him. Happened before, too, with Heath Ledger. Now, Heath Ledger is one of, like, my gods. Michael Jackson really is a great singer. I know that I enjoy his music, whether he is alive or dead, and I know that many generations lost a pop icon, a very funky man indeed. L.I.M. Michael Jackson!

How Could I Forget You, Lee?

For my favorite actors, how could I forget the one and only Lee Pace?

Lee Pace is an actor on one of my favorite shows, Pushing Daisies.
