"The triumphant return!" (if you don't read that in Ray Romano's voice, it just doesn't have the same ring)

Yes!  I am (hopefully) back!  Thank you all so much for your well-wishes for my recovery and your patience and general awesomeness.  I appreciate them :)


What better way to get back into the blogosphere than with some of those nifty tag/award-thingies?  Laura and Abigail have both nominated me for "Infinity Dreams", and Miss March has nominated me for the "Liebster"!  Thank you so much, ladies!  Now, the rest of you, if you haven't visited their blogs, do yourselves a favor and do so posthaste ;)

(A superfluity of Gilmore Girls paraphernalia may or may not follow.)


Infinity Dreams

2. Tell us 11 facts about yourself
3. Answer the 11 questions given to you
4. Tag 11 bloggers and give them 11 new questions to answer


~ 11 Facts Concerning Moi ~  (I briefly considered doing 22 facts, since I was tagged twice, but briefly is the operative word here.)

1.)  Speaking of Gilmore Girls…guys, they're doing a revival of the show!!!  FOUR 90-MINUTE MOVIES.  I'm pretty excited (and a little nervous, because I really want the movies to be clean, and to end wellwhich in my book would mean a double wedding with Luke/Lorelai and Jess/Rory.)  Have you guys heard about it?  What are your thoughts on a good ole Stars Hollow reunion?  I guess that didn't really have much to do with me personally, except to tell you that I'm really excited about it ;D

2.)  I love beach-combing.

3.)  I have a remarkably low tolerance for spice and flavor in food.

4.)  Rebecca of York is a major fictional role model for me.  "Thy opinion may fluctuate on the wild and changeful billows of human opinion, but mine is anchored on the Rock of Ages." GAAAHHHH.

5.)  One of the things I love most about spring is how the world seems to get crowded with all the greenery.  It's like, everything's rather bare and stark, and then all of a sudden spring happens, and BOOM!  The earth can't even contain all the leaves and blossoms and grass :)

6.)  I have an idea for a project that I'm super excited about:  it's a bulletin board of pictures and quotes and other things of pretty, focusing on personality acceptance and introversion and all that jazz.  I'll have to post pictures if I get to do it; it's kind of hard to explain.  


7.)  Sometimes I start sentences without having a clear plan of how to actually finish them lucidly, and I end up literally babbling.  My friends probably think I have some sort of problem, bless.  

8.)  I can't swim well.  At all.  It's kind of a problem, actually…

9.)  I have brown hair and brown eyes.  (I just realized, I don't think I ever mentioned that.  Now I'm curious--how many of you imagined me as a brunette and how many imagined me as a blonde or a redhead?  Or did you?  ;-P)

10.)  A song that has been made into a music video for one of my favorite couples can instantly become one of my new favorite songs, even if I would never have found it otherwise.  Handy how that works :D

11.)  The below picture has been making me randomly crack up today:  


~ Laura's Questions ~ 

If you could have personally witnessed anything, what would it have been?  Oh, wow.  I haven't a clue, actually.  Probably something in Jesus' lifetime here on earth, I assume?

Do you like musicals? And if so, which ones?  I do indeed ;D  Which ones?  I'll just list all of the ones that I can think of at the moment (not counting Disney movies), but please understand, I do NOT condone all content in all of these.  Here goes:  Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Evita, The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, The Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, The King and I, Calamity Jane, Kiss Me Kate, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and…that's all I can think of for now.


What genre of books do you like to read the most?  The classics, probably.  Classics/historical fiction in general.  

Naomi, this is for you.  And for you, Lois, and for anybody else who loves Call the Midwife :)

What is the weirdest book you have ever read?  Well, I technically haven't finished this book yet, but I plan to eventually.  It's called The Book of Sorrows, and it's by Frank Wagnerin Jr. (don't think I spelled his last name correctly).  It's…odd.  Very odd.  I don't quite know what to make of it, honestly, which is complicated by the fact that the writing is really good!

Are you a daredevil or do you play it safe?  *primly*  I prefer to not have the word 'devil' in any way connected with me, thankyouverymuch.  Haha, just kidding, but I am definitely more of a play-it-safe kind of gal.  

What can always cheer you up?  Watching a movie/tv show with my parents/siblings!

What's your favorite movie?  Ha.  You're cute.  

What's your favorite word?  Gah, I don't know!  I like 'resplendent' and 'catharsis' (though I wish it sounded prettier), and lots of others, but it's taking me too long to think of them :P


What has been your favorite birthday celebration?  You know, I typically don't really have a party or anything like that on my birthday, but I did enjoy doing that once.  I've also liked it when my mom and I have gone out to shop.  

Did you go through any "phases"?  Bless you, yes!  The coin-collecting phase, the talking-to-myself phase (never really grew out of that one), the horse-figurine phase (still love those), lots of phases.  

What's the strangest thing someone has said to you?  One time a number of years back, two of my friends and I were on the tire swing at the church where our co-op was held, and one of the older students generously offered to push us.  (You'd have to know this guy--he's very polite, very nice, all of that, but also of a strong mind and strong opinions.)  So he's pushing us, and all of a sudden he says--in a perfectly polite and matter-of-fact tone, mind you, but still says--"You girls are a lot heavier than you look."



~ Abigail's Questions ~

What is your earliest memory of reading, or being read to?  I don't remember!  I do remember being on the swings at church one time and deciding I wanted to learn how to read for myself.  Oh, and guys, my mom just told me that she read more when she was recovering from my birth than from any of my siblings'!  Coincidence?  I think NOT!  ;D

Why did you choose to start a blog?  Originally, the plan was to have a place to put movie reviews for some school friends, because I'd been stalking blogs for so long that I decided I wanted to start writing reviews.  Eventually, however, I realized that I wanted to be more involved in the blogosphere (as in, actually comment and meet people and stuff like that), so I made my blog public, began to comment, and here I am!  You guys are honestly such tremendous blessings to me, you don't even know <3

Since this is the Infinity Dreams Tag, what is your biggest dream, no matter how out there it may seem?  Truth be told, I don't actually have that many dreams--and I don't say that in a pity-me way, honestly!  But I would really, really love to be in a stage musical someday.  A leading role would be a lot of fun, and a lot of stress :D


Favorite subject in school? (If you in school still. If not, what WAS your favorite subject?)  I'm still in school for a little while longer, at least, and my favorite subject is literature.  (I SHOCKED you with that one, didn't I?)

Where would you live in the world, if you could live anywhere?  In the same state in which I now live :)  But there are lots of places it might be fun to visit!

How would you describe your personal style?  Non-existent :P  KIDDING, I'm kidding.  Um…relaxed but feminine, maybe?

Who has inspired you? It can be anyone, past, present, fictional, or no.  Well, as I mentioned in my eleven facts, Rebecca of York.  The way Scott wrote her character…just, mah WORD.  The early Christian martyrs, I suppose (you suppose?!); C. S. Lewis; I think Johann Sebastian Bach's life really inspired me when I was learning about classical music last year; anybody who lived through the World Wars and didn't decide to just give up after all the inhumanity they'd seen.  I'm kind of drawing a blank on specific inspirational people, I'm afraid…OH!  Sylvester Stallone.  I'm really not that familiar with any of his movies except the Rocky saga, but I stumbled across a picture post on Pinterest that narrated his life story, and then did a bit more research on him, and LET ME TELL YOU. 


Do you prefer open plains, and sparkling beaches, or rugged mountains and wild forests?  Now, Abigail, I want you to know that you have created quite a stir in my subconscious with this question, ever since I first read it sometime last month.  It's such a difficult choice, because they're both so amazing!  But I think, all things considered, I'd have to go with rugged mountains and wild forests.  The idea of sparkling beaches inspires and soothes me, but you see, I don't necessarily miss the ocean/the beach if I'm somewhere they're not (which I usually am).  But I do miss mountains.  I just do.  I live surrounded by lots and lots of mountains, and I miss them whenever they're not there.  

If you could meet one celebrity, who would you choose?  …I don't know.  ("Do we detect a pattern here?")

Favorite Disney princess? (Or Disney character if you don't prefer princesses.)  Belle, Pocahontas, Anna, or Elsa :)
Favorite quote?  Here's one that brought great joy to my soul when I read it a few days ago:

"We do not live in this world at random, bodies drifting through empty space, forming and colliding by mere chance; nor are we the masters of our own destinies, as much as we may desire to be.  Rather, we are like the dandelion seeds my brother cast into the summer sky, ferried along by He who guides the winds and stills the waters, our journeys a mystery to us, except in hindsight.  Along the way, we find those we are meant to love and those who are meant to love us.  We fashion our lives according to what we have known and what we have yet to learn.  At times, each of us is the child in a burning house, escaping through tiny doors, dependent upon the grace of God and the kindness of strangers.  

Wherever our journeys may take us, whatever struggles they bring, one solid truth underlies all that is. Not a drop of water falls from heaven unintended.  We are, each of us, meant to change the ocean and to be changed by it, to become new creations as we travel our paths, and answer our challenges, and live and relive our Camelots.

It's a little long, and I do apologize, but IT'S JUST SO PWETTY.

~ Rules ~
1. Link back to the person who tagged you
2. Answer the 11 questions
3. Tag 11 bloggers (and let them know you tagged them)
4. Ask them 11 questions

~ Miss March's Questions ~ 

What is your personality type?  INFJ, through and though.  (At least, I'm pretty darn sure, because I've taken the test three times, on two different websites, and gotten it each time.  Plus the Myers-Briggs description of INFJs is almost scarily dead-on accurate of me, in almost every particular.)

What is one of your newest favorite movies? (As in one that you recently found, not necessarily a newly made film.)  One that I'm just getting into is Finding Neverland.  I had watched it once long ago, and decided I didn't like it, because it was "depressing".  Then my mom got it from the library during my family's bout of the flu, I watched it, and I loved it.  It's SUCH a good movie.  


Have you ever been prejudiced against a certain movie before watching it, but then after seeing it decided it wasn't so bad? What movie was it?  I'm sure there was one, but I can't think of it…

If you could meet any author in person, who would it be?  Probably Lewis ;)

How many siblings do you have, and where do you fall in the lineup? (Sorry if that's a rather nosey question. You may answer it or not as you so choose.)  It's not nosey!  I have five siblings, and I am actually the fifth sibling.  So, fifth of six.

If you could be related to any fictional character (from a movie or a book), who would it be and what relation would they be to you?  What a tantalizing idea!  Well, this isn't necessarily a relation, but I'd love to be one of the few females with whom Bertram Wooster is comfortable.  

What is your favorite household chore, and what is your worst?  
I don't know…I don't know which my favorite is.  I think my least favorite is Bona-ing the floor. 

Anne and Diana (from Anne of Green Gables) are a classic example of best friends. Do you have a best friend, and if so which one of you is more like Anne and which is more like Diana?  Well, we're not really that much like Anne and Diana, to be honest…*tries to think of another famous fictional duo and fails*  We've both got bits of each in us, I suppose.

Speaking of Anne...


What was one of the first chapter books you ever read? (You know, the one that made you feel so proud because you were reading a "big kids' book"!)  Probably one of the books from the American Girl franchise :)

What is one of the yummiest, most delicious desserts you can think of at the present moment?  "Something deep-fried and smothered in chocolate!"  Hehe.  Props if you get that reference.  

If you could be a character in one of your favorite movies, which movie would it be and which character would you choose?  Well, I could choose to be Éowyn in the Houses of Healing, for obvious reasons *ahemFaramirahem*.  And speaking of Anne again, I think it'd be terribly interesting to be Anne for a bit, don't you?  Or I could choose to be Molly Gibson, to see if we really are as similar as I think we are…


Whew!  I know.  That was an extremely long post.  Thanks so much for reading, you guys!  And thank you, Laura, Abigail, and Miss March, for tagging/nominating me!  It's so good to be back with all you dear people :)

  3. First off, thanks for answering my questions!! :)
    That Jess and Rory gif is JUST SO ADORABLE. I am so excited for the Gilmore Girls revival. Basically a double wedding would be perfect. Because let's be honest, Jess was the only one for Rory.

    That quote from Rebeccas of York!! I loves it. Though I don't believe that I've ever ACTUALLY read it. I've heard so much from friends but haven't managed to check it out. I might just have to do that.

    I've always imagined you as a light brunette, almost blonde but not quite.

    THAT QUOTE FROM DANDELION SUMMER! I may just copy that down and put it on my wall. It is both enchantingly poetic, and extremely comforting to think of how His gentle hand is guiding our lives.

    Finding Neverland is such a wonderful movie. I remember watching it years ago and being inspired by it.

    As to being Anne, I would imagine that would be wonderful, especially if a certain Gilbert was involved. XD

    I'm glad you're back, m'dear!

    1. Anytime, girlfriend! :)

      I KNOW SQUEEEEEEE. I had some issues with Jess originally, but I've read that he actually became quite mature and did alright for himself later in the series, didn't he? And didn't he encourage Rory to reconcile with Lorelai that one time? He's now definitely my bid for her significant other :)

      Isn't it awesome?! You should definitely try it!

      Well, there we are! My hair is pretty dark, but in certain lighting it looks like it has some blondish highlights.

      GAAHH YES DO IT. And post a picture :D "It is both enchantingly poetic, and extremely comforting to think of how His gentle hand is guiding our lives." Yes, yes, YES!

      It really is.

      Haha, ahem, yes, indeed ;)

      Thank you! 'Tis good to be back :)

  4. Yayyyyyyyy!!!! You’re back!! :-) I’m so glad you’re feeling well again, dear Olivia!

    And what a fun post :-) Now I shall proceed to write a looooooooooooong and random comment in response, haha.

    That bulletin-board-idea is awesome. DO IT.

    Ha. HA. I do the start-sentences-but-can’t-finish-them-lucidly thing ALL. THE. TIME. I actually have this weird habit of starting to say something, then backtracking to add extra information which the listener probably didn’t need to know in the first place . . . But it’s all good. It’s just the way I do things :-) And my siblings, friends, professors, etc. have all learned to just listen patiently and piece my jumbled communications together without complaining, which I HUGELY appreciate.

    I can’t swim either ;-) But since we live six hours from the nearest beach . . . it’s not really a problem.

    I think I always thought of you with dark hair and eyes . . . I think you mentioned it once in a post, actually; but even before that I think that’s how I pictured you. Maybe ‘cause you often choose dark-haired people for your profile pics?

    Oh! Speaking of, I’m curious—before you saw a photo of me, how did you picture me? Blonde, dark-haired, or somewhere in between? :-)

    Daredevil? HAHAHAHA. Me neither.

    I’d LOVE to watch “Finding Neverland”!! I’ve heard so much about it—oh, have you heard any of the Broadway soundtrack? Probably you have, but if you haven’t, you MUST listen to “When Your Feet Don’t Touch the Ground.” That song . . . no words, folks. None.

    1. Thanks so much, Jessica! :D

      Haha, I loved it.

      Thanks, I think I will!

      YOU TOO LIKE HOW DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME SO WELL?!?! Yep. Yep. That's pretty much me. Friends and family are so understanding, aren't they? ;)

      Yeaaaahh…I mean, I can swim in theory, but not for very long AT ALL.

      Ahh, yes, now that you mention it, I think I have revealed that before. Plus some of my profile pictures have been me (just not my face, muwhahaha). Hehe! I usually try to choose dark-haired people, because I ALWAYS imagine people like their profile pictures!! Aaaand, so, before I saw thy lovely face, I pictured you roughly like that one profile picture you had, with the girl with red(ish) hair, a light blue dress, and sunglasses. Wow, that's a terrible explanation. I didn't picture you with red hair, and I didn't necessarily picture you with sunglasses, but…ok, I'm going to shut up. I'm babbling xD

      I haven't! When I was looking at Pinterest pictures of it, I saw that there was a musical, though, so now I'll have to check it out! That's an awesome title for a song...

      Delete
    2. I DON'T KNOW HOW WE ARE SO SIMILAR. Honestly, I've met very, very few people who seem to have that same issue . . . but I do, and you do. So neither of us is alone :-) And to be honest, I get the impression that at least SOME of the folks I know think it's kinda cute when I can't figure out what I'm trying to say. So there's that. Side benefits. ;-)

      Ah--you imagined me like Saoirse Ronan from "Brooklyn"? I like that :-) It makes sense, too; because even though I don't actually "look" much like Saoirse herself, that one photo does sort of look like me without looking like me, if ya know what I mean. (See, it's confusing.)

      Ohhhhhhhhh . . . my dear, my dear, this must be remedied at once. HERE LISTEN TO IT WITHOUT DELAY IT'S FANTASTIC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxz9DWDzJIE
      Basically, it's a duet between James Barrie and Peter (the little boy), and . . . sheesh. It blows me away every time. I just can't explain how amazing it is.

      Delete
    3. Haha, yes indeed ;D

      Yeah! I can think of two different photos that I pictured you resembling, that do actually look like you without looking like you. As you said :)

      Eeeeekk, thanks for the link! I'm definitely going to listen to it, but at the moment I must fly from the computer, so I shall have to wait again. Bother :P

  5. You're back!!!! Yipeeeeee!!!!

  7. Aw man, I had written a comment yesterday and it seems to have been lost to the ages. Rats. I will have to restate myself.

    Anyway, Olivia has posted! Yay! Happy day. :-) 'Tis good to hear from you again, and I thoroughly enjoyed this. Actually I was going to come over here and comment anyway even if you hadn't posted because I just watched Penny Serenade two nights ago and I thought that might interest you, I don't know, maybe...

    Ohhhh, Finding Neverland!!! It's been years since I watched it, but I remember being very touched and crying a lot, so obviously that means it was good.

    What's your favorite movie, Olivia? Can't you tell us???? ;-P

      I agree with you, ma'am! In fact, I remembered you mentioning it to Naomi a while back, and that sort of encouraged me to give it another try ;)

      Heh. You're SO adorable :P

  8. Welcome back! :D

    Beach-combing, indeed! Actually, it isn't the beach-combing itself that I enjoy as much as just walking leisurely along a beach. I totally pretend I'm Anne Elliot from Persuasion'08. ;)

    I love your list of musicals! Is "Kiss Me Kate"...clean?

    Yup, Classics/Historical Fiction are the best. :)

    Dawww, I've never seen the show, but that Call the Midwife gif is CUTE. :D

    Haha, I'm reading the Anne of Green Gables books, and Anne never grew out of the talking-to-herself phase either, so you're in good company. ;) I do it too, only silently in my head, when I trying to keep myself from getting overly worked up over something. There'll always be two sides in my brain, the sensible one, and the impulsive one. Rather like Gollum, actually... :D

    Hehe, well, at least he was polite about it. :)

    I'm glad you started blogging! Your blog is so cosy and cheerful and I've really enjoyed getting to know you and sharing book/movie recommendations. :)

    Mountains and forests just *are* the superior. ;)

    Yay, another INFJ! I've taken a few tests, and it SEEMS like that's what I am. A lot of the INFJ descriptions fit me, but then some don't, so...

    This just might be my longest comment yet! Enjoy the rest of your spring!

    1. Aww, thanks, girl :)

      Haha, I do too, sort of! It's awesome ;)

      Thanks! Yeah, it's clean. I mean, *I* consider it clean. One of the characters is a dancer who has some…interesting dances, but I really don't think they're anything to worry about.

      Agreed :)

      Isn't it, though?!

      Haha, that's a comfort. "Rather like Gollum, actually…" HAHA, yes. Same :D

      Heh :P Awwwwwwwww! You are SO sweet! And right back at you <3 I love chatting and fangirling together :D

      Yes! *high five* Yeah, not absolutely ALL of the descriptions fit me, but most do.

      I absolutely loved it, so thanks! And thank you, you as well!

  10. Ahhh! This was such a lovely post, Olivia. I love your choice of pictures! :D And welcome back, my dear. I missed you.

    Oh! Your bulletin board idea sounds really cool. Please do post pictures! And, yup. I definitely imagined you as a brunette. Probably because the profile picture you had when I first met you was a girl with brown hair standing next to a blossoming tree.

    Aww. THAT GIF! I've never watched Call the Midwife, but now I think I'd really like to...because that gif is just too cute. :)

    I'm a "play it safe kind of gal", too. And oh! I totally agree. Watching movies with family is just the ticket for cheering a person up. :) Haha. Loved your answer to "What's your favorite movie?" It made me laugh.

    Aww. The kids in those Finding Neverland pictures are adorable! :) I've never seen that movie, but maybe I should try it sometime.

    I'm the fifth sibling in my family, too! :)

    I LOVE your answer to the question about what fictional character you'd like to be related, too. I WANT TO BE BERTRAM WOOSTER'S FRIEND, TOO!!! Isn't he the sweetest person, though? I just love his character. And I feel so sorry for him because he means so well, and he's always trying to help his friends, and they're always getting him into SO much trouble. :( Poor Bertie.

    Now I'm curious. Where does the "deep fried and smothered in chocolate" reference come from?

    Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all these questions. I very much enjoyed reading all your answers. :)

    1. Thank you, Miss March! I'm so glad you liked it :D And I've missed you too <3

      Thanks, I definitely will if I can ever get it done! Ah, yes. I seem to have forgotten how I HAVE actually used a couple profile pics that are of me xD

      Isn't it adorable?! I think you'd like CtM, honestly.

      Hahahaha, yes. We think alike, you and I ;D

      Aren't they?! It's a really good, gently bittersweet movie :)

      Awesome! *fist bump*

      YUSSS BERTIE IS THE BESTEST! I absolutely love his character, too. Haha, yeah :D

      It comes from the second Shrek movie, which is surprisingly okay :P

      Aww, thank you! I loved answering your questions :)

  11. YAY!! You're baaack! :D I LOVED reading this post!

    Oh, I love your idea about the bulletin board - it sounds like something I'd love to do! Unfortunately my room is completely taken up with furniture as it is, so I can't right now - that's why I have (literally) 6 pieces of paper, mostly inspiring things, stuck to my bed head and bed post. ;D

    Really? You can't swim? That just sounds so strange to me! Maybe people in Australia swim more... I just thought it was a normal kind of thing... well, you learn something every day! ;)

    I imagined you as a brunette with dark eyes since I first came here! I think I saw a profile picture with your hair or something (you were wearing the Evenstar?) so that's why I never doubted it. ;) I always wished I had lovely dark hair... *sigh* It's kind of a light brown/dirty blonde colour, with some (natural) blonde streaks in it. But I DO have very dark eyes. :D (It was kind of embarrassing, actually, - yesterday I was doing a science experiment involving the pupil of your eyes, and I couldn't do it on myself (I ended up using a sister :P) because I couldn't tell my iris from the pupil, heh.)

    Haha, seriously - who DOESN'T like musicals?! Although, I see Newsies isn't on the list...? Not your cup of tea, or you just haven't tried it yet?

    Haha... Oohhh. I'd say I'm a dare devil. :P

    Oh, boy... you know, I think I've had several people say that to me ("you're heavier than you look")! I mean, I'm not THAT heavy, but they seem to think girls are like those stereotyped ones in movies that don't weigh a thing and the heroic gentleman can merely pick her up with one hand? :P Get real.

    AAHHH THAT PICTURE OF SUSAN AND LUCY. I LOVE. THEIR DRESSES. I WANT.

    Ohh... that quote from Dandelion Summer. It gave me chills. (The nice kind.)

    You're an INFJ? I am an ENFJ. :) So basically an extroverted you, hehe. (Well, I am a cross between that and ESFJ, but I'm mostly an ENFJ.)

    Can't say I really know the movie "Finding Neverland". I mean, I know OF it, but I don't remember watching it, or what it's like. Not sure if I'd get used to seeing Johnny Depp without his CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow costume on, though. :P

    Oh oh oh... "something deep friend and smothered in chocolate." I JUST saw the movie that quote was in... I'm sure I heard that quote recently... and I can't remember WHICH ONE!!! Please, do tell me! :P

    I very much enjoyed reading all your answers. :) (Oh. my. gosh. I just glanced above me and realized I mirrored Miss March's last sentence word for word. :P Whoops.)

    1. Thanks so much!!! I'm so glad you liked it :D

      Thank you! Oh, I hope you can get some stuff up on your walls soon! I understand the struggle :P

      Hehe, welllllll…technically, I can swim-ISH. It's just…not pretty :D

      Ohhhhhhhhhhh--that makes sense. Apparently I forgot the few times I've used a picture of me :P Hey, your hair sounds like it's beautiful! And aaaaaaacckkk, I think it's SO COOL to have eyes that dark. Mine are fairly dark, but not that dark, I don't think :D (Hahaha, that story…)

      I know, right?! Uhh…about that. I, um, I haven't watched it yet, and I haven't listened to much of the music, though I did try a little. At the risk of alienating the entire blogging community, I'm not sure if it's quite my cuppa *ducks* But I DO want to give it another--and more thorough--try :)

      Hahaha ;D I'm too chicken to be a dare devil, for one thing.

      I KNOW RIGHT.

      Yeeessssss, I love that picture so. stinking. much.

      Isn't it great?!

      "So basically an extroverted you…" HA! "You adorable girl!" ;D

      Haha, it probably takes a bit. But I'd watched another Johnny Depp movie in between PotC and FN, so I think that helped in my case :D

      Ain't that the most frustrating thing, when you can't remember where a quote is from? It's from the second Shrek :D

      Hahaha! You two are both absolute dolls :)

    2. No, no, don't feel bad. I dislike the idea of pressuring people into liking things. If Newsies ain't your cuppa, then that's might fine with me. ;) But all the same, I do suggest you try again. :D

    1. I haven't! But I did see pictures of it when I was looking up FN on Pinterest, and Jessica's told me it's awesome, so now I have at least two trusted friends' recommendations! I look forward to trying it out :D

  13. Awww, yay!! I'm SO glad you're back and feeling better. :)

    I have a friend who's excited for the new Gilmore Girls show, too. She ships Jess and Rory SO HARD. :D

    I've always pictured you as a brunette, because of one of your original profile photos of you behind the flowers. :)

    "Resplendent"! That's a beautiful word. One of my current favorites is "ineffable." :)

    I'm SO glad you made your blog public and joined the fun. The blogging world wouldn't be the same without you!! :D

It appears that you're about to leave a comment. I think you should know that if you do, I will giggle and smile and be delirious with joy, and then I'll stalk you to find out whether or not you have a blog *ahem*.

…All that's to say, please comment! :D
