Directed by Lorene Scafaria
Starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley
I think the idea of a romantic comedy set in a time when the world is just about to come to an end is brilliant. It isn’t the best film ever made and I thought it weird that they’d pair Steve and Keira up cause that’s kind of uhm, gross. But the thing is they actually worked. I had no problem seeing them together and stuff. And I never thought I’d say this but I found Steve really charming in this movie. He just had something with his brooding, sad puppy acting that allows me to find him really adorable. I know, ack, but I guess I’m entitled to my own opinion here.
(Shout out to old school CSI: Las Vegas fans! I was so excited when I saw Will Petersen aka Gil Grissom in a cameo appearance as a trucker)
(Forgive me if you disagree but I think Steve had this Jared Leto-ish vibe going on in this scene. Totes sexay. HAHA)
Oh and check out the film’s soundtrack right here. I was like singing along to The Walker Brothers, The Beach Boys, and The Hollies. Amazing, amazing.

Hi all! The procrastinator in me decided that updating my blog is a lot more important than completing a comparative analysis paper on Jean Piaget’s and Lev Semenovich Vygotsky’s theories on cognitive development. See, being a student of Family Life and Child Development is definitely not all fun and games. The kids are cute but the readings are horrific. But okay, going back to my post…
Notice how I never or rarely blog about my artistic skills? That’s cause I have close to none. I can color inside the lines and that about sums it up. Okay fine, I can draw lines too. Yesterday, I came upon a plain looking canvas back in my closet and I decided to try doodling stuff on it to give it more attitude and the result was like woah worthy of posting for all the world to see. HAHA okay it isn’t all that but it’s kinda okay if you base it on my standards.
So here’s the finished product:
I opted to go with an aztec design since I was better with shapes and lines rather that natural figures.
Here are the materials I used:
1. Plain canvas bag
You may iron the bag first to create a smooth surface which will make drawing easier.
2. Colored markers
I had a slight problem with markers since some weren’t really fit for canvas. I advise using fabric markers or even paint if you want. I was lucky though to have Letraset Promarkers but I only had like around 6 colors since these were pretty pricey but they really worked well with the fabric so I used them for the larger details.
So there, yay! Sad that I’ve come to the end of this post because that means I really have got to start working on that paper. Ciao!

I thought that because I knew Mark was bound to die, I wouldn’t really be that affected. But because of the backtracks and rare footage and the reality that McSteamy would be no more, I grieved the entire time I was watching the premiere episode.
Thanks to the wonder that is tv.com, I was able to create a schedule of my favorite shows that’ll premiere this month. My sem break will be spent couch potato-ing.
Hello to you too! I like your blog name too! Sounds familiar :)
