Five of everything, but not really

So, you know. LISTS. Man. What’s better? I’ll tell you what’s better. Nothing. I’m probably taking to much from my friend’s blog (Julia) when I do this, but she’ll forgive me. See, she made lists of five things from January, and I decided to do the same. Just without the January part. Five things from whenever (wheeeeereeeeeeeeeverrrrr), that I like.


  1. Congratulations – MGMT
  2. Light Me Up – The Pretty Reckless
  3. Saturdays = Youth – M83
  4. This is Me – Charlie McDonnel
  5. Fantasies – Metric

Five Books:

  1. Notes on a Scandal – Zoé Heller
  2. Growing Pains – Billie Piper
  3. Paper Towns – John Green
  4. The Secret History – Donna Tarrt
  5. The Hunger Games Trilogy – Suzanne Collins


  1. The Way it Ends – Landon Pigg
  2. Subdivisions – Susanna and the Magical Orchestra
  3. Eet – Regina Spector
  4. My Medea – Vienna Teng
  5. Siberian Breaks – MGMT


  1. Earthlings (documentary)
  2. Mr. Nobody (effing best movie I’ve ever seen)

Five good things:

  1. Chocolate soy milk
  2. Finding new, great songs
  3. Reading books
  4. Trying new things
  5. Buying birthdays gifts (especially when it’s for my little sister)

Yes. Yes, I linked them all. Yes, I have a lot of free time. And no, that last link wasn’t a mistake. Cat’s have lots to do with my sister’s birthday present.

I’d like to think..

… that if I had guitars in this many colours, I’d automatically be awesome at playing.

New year update and post and whatnot

Hope you all had a jolly food Christmas! I meant to write good, but when food came out on the keyboard instead, I figured it makes more sense. Christmas is all about food anyway, right? As a non-meat eater, I made a nut roast for both Christmas evening, and New Years. I could give you the recipe, but it’s all over the Internet anyway. Next Christmas.

I got a Christmas present that actually made my aunt hold her hands over her ears, because of my scream. You know Moomin, right? If not, GO GOOGLE YOU’RE MISSING OUT ON THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD. Anyway, I’m kind  of a fanatic Moomin collector and enthusiast. And I got one of those Moomin cups.

I love these cups. I mean, just look at them! WOO! I would have them all, it’s just that they’re a little expensive as cups go. But I got one of them from one of my best friends, and screamed for about five minutes. No kidding. And just to top it of, I got the one with my favourite character, Snufkin. If I were to have a crush on a non-real, drawn-out-not-even-played-by-someone person, it would without a doubt be him.

And just to show you my all consuming love, here’s me with a regular cup (yes, I realize how that may sound wrong):

And with a Moomin cup:

Sure got the crazy eye figured out.

Those last two images got kind of drawn out. Whatever, dude, me no take no time to fix dat. Well, I’m of to walk my dog for a bit, in the snow! Byyyeee. I think I’ll post my resolutions and stuff later, cause that means making lists, and boy, do I love lists.

Thanks for all the viewings, by the way. I have no idea how it happened, but you almost made me faint.

Afro-something hair

So, this is what my hair looks like when I take out the dreads. I never, ever want to shower again. This is too awesome.

In other news, I had my friend (BFF, soulmate, doodle, shangalanga, whatever you want to call her) over last night, and we had an awesome time as usual. She’s the mind and voice and face of this beauty right here:

Hope that’s okay with you, sweetums (mehe, oh the names). I thought I’d use my weird-ass viewings on this blog to something a little useful.


Wow. Okay, so this is crazy. I had, to be honest, forgotten about this blog. Well, I’ve thought about it now and then, when the topic of blogs comes up, but that’s beside what I wanted to say. But I kind of just thought that “hey, no one ever reads it (or, one of two people, and not that that isn’t anyone, but jeez, that’s beside the point again), so why bother trying to keep it up?” and it just went out of my routine.

Till I saw my friend Julia tweet “I stumbled across Aila’s english blog today. Freaky.” And I was like no way, what the hell?!

And then of course I had to check. And wow, did I get surprised. I do not know how it’s possible to not write on a blog for months, and still have like 50 views a day. I cannot understand it. The viewcount on this blog is crazy. CRAZY. How do 7000 people get to read my blog? Or at least, on of the blog posts.

So I was like

And that was how you have made me feel. If you can’t tell, it’s a very happy feeling.
