ummm don't judge me. sometimes you just have to look up youtube videos of cute baby owls.

I didn't realise something so cute could make such a terrifying sound.

the one on the left is making me giggle. what a stare... you know its thinking of all the ways it can kill you.

He squeels in delight at every piece of raw meat... so. cute.

what the hell are these guys doing to this owl... this was the last piece of evidence of those peoples alive...lesson to you all, never make an owl mad

... aww.

It's mad libs time.... "Sometimes people are _(noun)_ holes. "

i hate you lemon cake
by kayepants on flickr

lets set the scene.

Imagine the morning of an exam and wanting to get in some last minute revision during your morning commute. You're tired and you look like shit but you're still being polite to other passengers and trying not to be in anyones way... this includes not taking up any residual spots next to yourself with bags or books but rather putting everything on the floor and notes and pen on lap. also important note: You're a girl.

sounds innocent enough right?

OK next enters passenger 400. A business casual dressed middle aged guy (maybe younger but he was an asshole so lets say 56 years old here, cause he looks worse than you and really anyone with this much of a superiority complex should be knocked down off his high horse, trampled and shat on.)

i mean...  yeah enters passenger 400 and sits next you. Not kindly (aka checking to see if they're going to sit on you, and therefore not sitting on you) but rudely ( .... opposite to the first option...)

He sighs alot and pushes you and then opens his legs wide as to claim his spot or to make sure you know hes a "man". ( you don't really understand this phenomenon. it happens with almost every guy even when there's no room and hes surrounded by others being squeezed into their spots.)

During this you're annoyed but you say to yourself to ignore it cause he probably doesn't realise what hes doing and how much off a jack ass hes being at that point. So you continue on with your revision. writing little notes and going through your papers. one second later you see the man start fidgeting and watching his pants strangely, and you see a tiny dot about a mm in size on his already dark pants.... uh oh... you assume you've marked his pants but cant remember doing it. You can practically feel him boiling over, his elbowing and "humphh!s" getting more annoying and angry at every stop.  Finally a stop before you have to go he sees 2 chairs empty right opposite to you as a final "fuck you " to you he pushes you almost out of the chair and goes to the empty spot taking over both chairs opening his legs up even bigger and staring you down.

also remember.... you're a girl.

gosh I've been busy. with school and stuff and work. Truth is I'm not busy at all, My computer is out of commission until I find out how to repair it. I've been using it semi broken for the last while but Ive noticed the power jack and plug basically melting.... so I don't want to chance it anymore cause... I cant afford a new computer by any means. so I'm stuck using my clones amazing computer or like now the ones at school.

On Wednesday basically every school In Toronto closed down due to weather emergency status. My clones school closed down before a flake of the snowfall even hit the ground. My Prof called it snowmageddon.... it barely got like 19 cms and they called for 30 cms. Whatever it was great to have a few days off.

I'm gonna do this thing called 6X62011 !!!!

Its this rad project the Rochester Contemporary Art Center does every year where thousands around the world send in pieces to be sold to raise money for the center. They have prizes and voting for favourites also pieces that are sold end up showcased on their site.

Heres the official description:
6x6x2011: Global is the fourth exhibition of thousands of original artworks, made and donated by celebrities, international and local artists, designers, college students, youths, and YOU. Each artwork will be 6x6 square inches and signed only on the back, to be exhibited anonymously. All artworks will be for sale to the public for $20 each to benefit Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo). Artist names will be revealed to the buyer only upon purchase and all works will remain on display for the duration of the exhibition. 

So yeah it seems like a pretty rad deal, helping out a charity, cash prizes, getting your work in a gallery and the chance to have your work sold. Also names of artists aren't given to buyers untill pieces are sold so its completely based on if they liked your piece.

ok I'll leave for now. hope all is well.
