Hey. I see you're drinking 1%. Is that 'cause you think you're fat? Cause you're not. You could be drinking whole if you wanted... OH HEY. HOW YOU DOOOOIN'?

Yeah, that's right. LOOK AT THAT FLATTERY. You see, I thought if I flattered you guys silly then it would perhaps compensate for lack of posting as you'd be blushing like MAD right now. Am I right? Am I right? YEAH, I'M RIGHT. Hah!

Anyways, I have an excuse for not posting: 1) I JUST got home. (and I've been doing nothing since. So I should be updating. But that doesn't make sense if I labeled such a reason for an excuse. So therefore all these words are in brackets as a secondary issue and blah blah blah.) 2) MY STUPID COMPUTER DIED. For real. It doesn't turn on. And it makes a noise as though it's going to barf up all its contents. Damn. I gave that thing 4 years of my life. 4 YEARS. And how does it repay me?! I hope we can patch things up... Mac's the only mac out there for me. I can't see being with any other Mac at this point. It's all... too raw. But you know, things change. Humans and Macs go in different directions. Different paths. It's not fair. Life's not fair.

MOVING ON. (do you follow the MULTIPLE meanings of those words? Aw yeah.)

As I've said, I just got home. Ish. A few days ago. In memory of Guatemala, I've decided to wear this mask (from Guatemala) whenever I go outside in public. My mummy says I'm special... HAH! FOOLED YA. I don't ACTUALLY wear this mask! (in public.) Only for pictures because I'm a poser like that. (But hey, I reck'n it'd be a good conversation starter, no?)

The mask is just SO FLY (yeah, I never say fly. But GET IT?! Fly?! Birds?! Bird Mask?! I'm hilarious!) that my sister decided to take a selfie with it. Pffshh. Dork!

In case you're super observant or a SPY KID (I put that in Caps to emphasize how ridiculous COOL it'd be if one my my readers' was a SPY KID. Aw yeah, childhood idols anyone? Anyone?!), then you would have perhaps realized I have ink on my wrist in a picture above the last. I got a tat. KIDDING. I have a newfound obsession with giving myself fake tattoos. Because, you know, I look cultural and artsy and stuff... I secretly want to be LA Ink. I also want to be an explorer. (But I might have just said the latter to tie into this picture. YOU WILL NEVER KNOW.)

ALSO, while we're onto close ups and such... MEET MY FAVOURITE SHOES FROM THE EIGHTH GRADE (aw, I sound so American... "The eighth grade.") Fun fact: I'm an extreme hoarder when it comes to clothing and shoes. As in, "Oh hey, I miiight wear that ugly vest with the Hannah Montana emblem one day. You simply NEVER KNOW." (This vest doesn't actually exist in my closet. It's merely an EXAMPLE. I swear!) And therefore my room is LITERALLY my closet. Literally. I have belts on the side of my bed. And I sleep over my sweaters and shorts. And Taylor Lautner. No, I'm kidding. That was a JOKE. Taylor Lauter? Psh. I'm OBVIOUSLY Team Edward! (That was also a joke. I hate Twilight. I'm just being, you know, CHEEKY and stuff. Giggle.)

Anyways. Guatemala was oodles of fun. I'll post pictures soon. I like the word oodle.

And doesn't it seem like the place where you'd meet a lot of interesting people. Like, "Oh yes. Whilst hostel-hopping (you know? Like club-hopping? But with HOSTELS? new term, boo yeah!), I met just THE most interesting people."
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

But then, this got me thinking, well WHAT MAKES A PERSON INTERESTING?! I mean, we can obviously play the whole, "Well, EVERYONE'S interesting!" Which is true. But I'm talking about, you know, those people that you meet and you just thinking "WOW. I met this person and they were just SO interesting." Is it their stories? Their personality? Their viewpoint? It's almost like, to borrow a phrase from those amazing pieces of literature (aka TABLOIDS), there's a certain "IT Quality!" (You know, I've heard it through the grapevine that poor Brad as just simply lost it since being a father. (and now I sound like I'm talking about his virginity? Damn.))

I must admit that I definitely use my clothing to convey being interesting. Like, "oh hey, I don't wear skinny jeans so I'm interesting! And really pretentious, apparently!" But, rest assured, I don't consider myself an interesting person. Not really. But then again, of COURSE everyone's interesting. I guess the beauty of the world is that no one's life can be replicated by another person: everyone undergoes different experiences and meets different people and endures different challenges that shape who they are and how they think and, yeah, it's all pretty interesting.

^ Oh and by the way. BIRD'S EYE VIEW. BIRD MASK. GET IT.

So, in conclusion, everyone's different. And here's what I want YOU to do.
Comment this:
(I GUESS YOU COULD SAY)
I AM INTERESTING BECAUSE
__________________________________.

(You fill in that blank.)
Plain and simple. Something interesting about you. I'm also going to assume that we're all going to sound rather pretentious, so do not fret. YOU ARE GOING TO SOUND PRETENTIOUS AND THAT'S OKAY. I like you and I want to know why you're interesting. (I last minute added the "I guess you could say" part because now we don't have to fret about sounding silly. BOO YEAH I'M CLEVER.)

I guess you could say I am interesting because I'm NOT your generic teenage girl. I don't believe in labels. I don't believe in conformity. Rather, I believe in being different and following dreams. And hell yeah, Imma do both. Worrrrrd. (I also pretend I'm gangstah.)

YOUR TURN.

(i guess you could say) I AM INTERESTING BECAUSE.. I like the sound the recycle bin makes when it deletes something? YES.

These pictures are SO VERY COOL. And yes, your bird mask is very fly, I like what you did there. Your green pants remind me of sweet peas and I like the exotic array of bracelets on your arm. :)

Cafe Fashionista said...

(I guess you could say) I Am Interesting Because...I am completely overdramatic and opinionated about everything; but...I am one of the most affectionate, thoughtful people you will ever meet at the very same time.

Ohmigosh I LOVE you for the "Napoleon Dynamite" quote. Did you know that they're trying to make a cartoon of Napoleon? Yes!! :P

missy pig said...

i really like the color of your shorts! :)

I AM INTERESTING BECAUSE i am left-handed

haha

K said...

I guess you could say Im interesting because I don't really care what anyone thinks. I live life for me and Im not worried about how people might perceive me. I just want to have as much fun as possible in this life of me. Usually that means a hula hooping party with bubbles and sidewalk chalk, and Im ok with that :)

kyki said...

(I guess you could say) I am interesting because I don't follow "trends", per se, and create my own (yeah, I live in a really small town, so this statement is actually pretty legit). Tee hee. :)

Love your homemade tattoo thingy. YEW IZ SEW BADASS. ;) Jks. But it looks awesome. I need a tattoo! ...I have no pain tolerance, BUT I NEED ONE! What should I get?!

Also - GIVE ME YOUR SHOES AND MASK OR...um...I will... uhhh... hm. How about we clone them and you give them to me? Okay? Okay.

BTW, you are totally interesting. And totally entertaining because of it.

Thanks for reading the sporadic-ness of this comment (I just woke up and am really overtired, yay)! :D

- xo, kyki ♥

(I GUESS YOU COULD SAY) I Am Interesting Because I analyze human behavior like crazy. I believe in not falling in love just as much as I believe in falling in love. I believe in reciprocity, equality, and taking command of your mind.

:)

I LOVE your blog so much. Your writing is HILARIOUS. I was laughing within the first couple of sentences.

Best wishes from one blogger to another,

~Zabrinah

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

I am interesting because i am really weird. No seriously, I am so weird. I say stupid things all the time, make inappropriate jokes, i have huge obsessions with random things, i talk in riddles. I feel so eloquent on my blog, but I'm not in real life. Like you, I love being different. I like wearing things people don't want to wear. I like being that weird girl who everyone thinks is weird... Anyways........

I love your outfit because it's the perfect colours, those shorts are fab, and that mask is FLY. FLYYY!!!!

And I'm a hoarder too. I keep everything. You never know when you may want it.

fhen said...

Absolutely LOVE the colors of your outfit and yes totally agree on the mask thing. I mean I have stuff I dont really use but look really good in pictures. :D Definitely a conversation starter. Hahaha. I love the colors of the mask. :)

Leah said...

You are interesting Lexy... you never fail to amuse me with your writing style. And I admire the way you use play with colors.

Hmmmmm... about me, I'm interesting because I am not your generic old person. Hahaha! I just copied your words.

Have a great day my dear! xoxo

Jen said...

that last picture is absolutely gorgeous and you kind of look like that flower since you're wearing yellow on top and green on the bottom. yeah? yeah. :D but seriously, i love the yellow and the green paired together! makes me want sorbet for some reason.

i am interesting because i like to listen to the pinocchio soundtrack alone in my room. and then i end it with some hardcore rapping thanks to eminem. :)

this free bird said...

I guess I'm interesting because I can still fit into clothes I wore in highschool...and I'm nowhere near being in highschool. and I still own a lot of them! packrat fevah!!

Amber Rose said...

(I guess you could say) I'm interesting because... I still think I can be Princess Diana when I grow up!

Colleen said...

Hi Lexy! Well, mostly I think I'm interesting because of my mafia connections and also because I wear dark glasses and a hat some days and se my umbrella like a cain.
;)
I just love your pictures and your creativity with words...the way you write is so fresh and vibrant! I also love the piled bracelets, they look wonderful and stylish!
Thank you for dropping by my blog, it will be fun to get to know you better!:)

Slothie said...

I am interesting because... I wear dr martens which are 2 sizes too big AND I'm not going to say your outfit looks awesome coz I'm capped so cannot see your images.

Sorry I'm not a liar however what I WILL do is visit again tmr when my net is uncapped :D

Just want to say thanks for the comment on my blog. I love how you're called quirky explosion. I'm quirkyartist on twitter.

Coincidences are mighty exciting don't you think?

Silkybow said...

Your blog is really entertaining to read. Your outfit looks great and your dog looks adorable...

Ali said...

I am interesting because I'm a lot smarter than I appear, and I'm really good at sewing. like really good.
we were buying a suit for my boyfriend today and the girl asked if he needed the pants taken up, and he said 'Ali can do it' and she said 'do you know how?'
lol.

Ali said...

Thankyou for the comment! I love your shorts & your colourful belt, and I must say, that dog is adorable.

First of all, I LOVE YOUR MASK.

Second of all, the interesting thing is really interesting. But I have to ponder deeply to discover what I want to say about it haha.

Third of all! You might know this, but just in case you didn't, those yellow flowers are called Bird's Foot Trefoil. (Please just amuse me for a bit by letting me tell my dorky story) Haha I learned about them at Range Camp and I ONLY POSITIVELY AND ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM. They are in the fabacaea family. They're legumes, like edamame! Have I dazzled you with my intelligence? Hahahaha.

Maybe my dorkiness and knowing this kind of stuff makes me interesting? At least, anywhere besides Range Camp, it does. Hahaha. I guess interestingness depends on your environment?

teri at tintedseaglass.blogspot.com

PS both you and your sister are positively adorable! i love both your smiles and i love your roar pose haha it's funny.
