squiggly wiggly

HEY THAR KIDS AND OOMPA LOOMPAS. (I have the tendency to have slightly abnormal greetings. I mean, uh, Hey.) (That was supposed to be a very sly Hey. Like a, "Heyyyyyyyy." Like, picture a coke commercial and after the boy has a fresh sip of the bubbly goodness he's all "Heyyyyy" to the hot chick. Whom he TOTALLY gets.) (I'm not actually being endorsed by coke. I don't even like coke. Sprite FTW. Sprite ENDORSE ME.) (And Value Village! And Kinder Surprise! And everyone else! Join in on the fun and give me free stuff! Please...)

I hope that you've all had a wonderful post-Christmas. (How much do you LOVE December? First it's "Happy Birthday" (this may only pertain to myself . And fellow Sagzzzz. Whedddup?), then it's "Happy Holidays," then it's "Merry Christmas," then it's "Happy New Year." NEVER ENDING GOODNESS LIKE A CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN OF DELIGHT YUMMY.)

I've spent the awkward lull between the "Aw man, Christmas is over" and the "HOLY MOLY IT'Z 2011 LETZ GO CUHRAZY" with the famjam (both immediate and extended). It's been a lot of fun. We've been eating rice and doing calculus (for fun, obv) and rocking ping pong tournaments and playing majong and I don't even know why I'm endorsing untrue racial stereotypes. But really, it has been a blast. I will now link my lacklustre Twitter because for those who may go onto ask "What has been a blast?" you can get an idea HERE. Woah! Blast to the past much?!

This head piece is a fantastic gift from Santa. I feel like I'm a character from Dr. Seuss. Obviously I love it.

2011 is just around the corner. But I think I will stay hipster and pretend that it's not even happening, at least for another day or two. Because, well, I'm hipster and I stand out and I'm unique and I'm special and la-dee-da-dee-daaaa and (mostly) OH MY WORD IT'S ALREADY 2011?! I'm becoming acutely aware of just how quickly life occurs and it's freaking me out. Day after day after year after decade after OH HEY IT'S TIME TO DIE. Life is so kooky.

(I'm really not pessimistic about life and I recognize that the time between birth and death cannot be summarized with the phrase "Day after day after year after decade" (WHAT AM I EVEN SAYING?) buuut... (OBVIOUSLY I AM TIRED AND THAT IS ALL) (GOOD NIGHT MY SUGAR PLUMS))

What has been the fondest time of your life?
Because the year's almost over and we're supposed to reflect on things like this. You're welcome for changing your life.

FONDEST TIME OF MY LIFE? MEETING YOU, OF COURSE. *teheheehee* <3

Santa picks out good headpieces, fer sure. You look awesome. Your puffy blue awesome shaped top reminds me of a majestic princess. Plus, you're gazing out a window of your tall tower.. Rapunzel, LET DOWN YOUR HAIR.

I like your skirt, tooo!!!~

HELLO APPLECAKES.
I also do like creating AWESOMEabnormal names for friends and alike; but I try to refrain from using them on my blog just in case someone is all like "BLUEBERRY MUFFIN? ARE YOU CALLING ME FAT LIKE A MUFFIN?!?!" ;A;

Anyway, I love how your wardrobe always contrasts yet does not look oddly disgusting. Love the tights <3 ! And the man shoulders ! AND ENDLESS SUPPLY OF LOVE IN DECEMBER! LOVE IT. But I'm worried now that Jan is here. Cos that means, SCHOOL BE BACK SOON. Well Uni, in my case. But Still! ;A; /worries


Oh yeah.
Happy New Yearrrrrrr!!

Fondest time of my life? Eh. THE FONDEST TIMES KEEPS GETTING BEATEN BY OTHER FONDEST TIMES. Does that even make sense? Yeah it does. KAY. <3

missy pig said...

GREETINGS! and a HAPPY 2011!!
I'd say, your blog has stirred something in me. It's let out my creative beast in me :) And I'll continue to read your blog in the upcoming year.

i am in love with your skirt

teri seaglass said...

Ah Dr. Seuss headdress, that must be so funtastic to wear! Your necklace is so awesome! I love it!

The fondest time of my life... Wow that reminds me of Fluorescent Adolescent from the Arctic Monkeys "the best you ever hadd..." except that's completely sexual, and I don't know where this is going. Haha, the fondest time of my life. I am lucky enough to say I have many but right now the one that stands out is still... range camp. I just had my 11th dream about it last night. I think maybe I need a shrink.

Regarding the lovely comment you left for me: Ah, coral reefs. I love it, thank you!

Fond is a funny word. Ive had some good times, some bad times, some fun times, but I don't know about fond. We'll see.

I love your 80's prom dress top, and the head piece- so quirky, so very you.

Have fun bringing in the new year!

Deidra said...

Angelica Ng said...

I LOVE your post openings. They are always so random, and so funny! And wow, your December is a crazy one! So many things going on! I love your necklace...it goes so well with the entire outfit. And that hairpiece? So fun!

haha your posts always make me smile though, and i say that in the least creepy way possible.
ANYways, i live about 2 hours away from niagara falls too... so i have a feeling that we're not really too far away from each other. haha so where actually are you from? (again, least creepy way possible..)

in the meantime,
cheers to 2011 :)

HEY LEXY SMEXY EXY!
Happy News Years! You're looking FABOUSH (your words, not mine) as usual. But that's a given, doi.

The fondest time of my life? Well.
This is a round of Truth or Dare, si it? I'll have you know, I am TERRIBLE at this game. I'm also terrible at anything related to athletics. Errrrr, I've gone off on a terrific tangent, haven't I?

Anyways!
It's kind of lame, but there's a blogger award with your name on it on my blog! it's my first blogger award so I had to participate, so hush now! And 'course I had to tag ya! ;)

monster cakes said...

Thanks for the sweet comment! I'm pretty much creepy obsessed with Dr. Seuss, so naturally I love the reference and your headband.

And my fondest moment would have been when I walked down the isle on my wedding day (SUPER cheesy, I apologize, but it's true).

Style, She Wrote said...

Great post! Love your outfit. Hope you had a Happy New Year! And last year has been pretty good so I may pick that as fondest period -- we have to see what 2011 offers! xo style, she wrote

YOU CHANGED YOUR BANNER! WHOA! HOW DID YOU MAKE THAT? ITS COOL AND TRIPPY!

CDG said...

What the hell is in your hair?!?! What what what is it?!?! Ohhhh maybe I should read the outfit description instead of screaming at you? Yeah, I got it. But really I do love it. You must have been very good this year and I must have been very bad, hence the weird gifts santa gave me and the amazing one you got.
P.s. love the new header.

Tami said...

OMG, YOU CHANGED YO BANNER GIRL! Hahah, its so .. quirky.. and explosive. HAHA, but the headband is adorable. YOU ROCK THAT.

Gah! You are just incredible in this holiday look, Lexy - and I love the fashionable prezzies Santa brought especially for you.

Happy, Happy New Year, my love!! :)

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

Love the outfit, but now you have me lusting over the headband. It seems like such a head turner...well obviously, it's a "head" band, haha, see what i did there, yeah, okay, good. :)

Umm anywho, happy new year!!!!! Hope you're having a fantastalastic time.

I think the fondest time of my life was when I finished 1st year university with really good grades. It was like awww yeahhhh. Haha, but actually I dunno, I've had a lot of good moments.

ShopeDelano said...

Love the outfit! It's so quirky! haha :) I'm now following!
