Halloween 2009

I really don’t even want to write about it. I feel like everyone is and everyone talks about it and that’s all everyone everywhere is talking about. What are you going to be? What are your plans? Happy Halloween. Halloween. Halloween. Halloween. Puke.

Number one: I love candy (YAY CANDY!!)
Number two: I fucking hate dressing up.
Number three: I’m annoyed by everyone doing sexy blahblahblah. Be a crayon or something. I’m grouchy about this topic.
Number four: I can sometimes be a complete hypocrite.

Last year my Halloween started out like this:


Turned into me dressing up like a pinup. Talk about big hair:


What you can’t really see are my lacy underpants over my tights and my huge tan colored heels. Yeah. I know, right?

And then the next morning I looked like this:


The tangles in my hair lasted for days. That’s what teasing gets you.

The bottom line is: Where would we be today without my obsessive photo documentation? Bored with nothing to say, that’s where.

This year I’m absolutely not dressing up, can’t make me won’t do it. I’m chaperoning my 10 yr old cousin while she gathers the goods, then I’m going home to watch the exorcist and give myself bad dreams for weeks with the boyfriend. Thing to know: my cousin doesn’t like snickers …. MONEY!!

Boondock Saints II

Holy Mother of God. YAY!!! So I was scanning the internets just now and saw that YES INDEED – Boondock Saints, the sequel, part two, whatever, is coming out! Or came out… or something. Apparently there has been hubub about where and when the movie will be showing. So who knows if I’ll ever be in the know enough to ever catch it in theaters. But let me tell you – Boondock saints, the original – is so one of my favorite movies of all time. And NOT just because it was really cool to say it was back in 2003. No sir. I remember exactly where I originally saw it. It was Kathleen’s basement with a bunch of other...

The Bold and The Beautiful

I have a flaw. Probably many, but today I’m just going to highlight one so as not overwhelm you completely. So here goes: I like pretty things. That includes people. I mean sure, I do have the ability to look “deep within” but mostly I judge purely on what’s on the outside. (please take this with a grain of salt and don’t hate me later, I’m sensitive.) So that’s the back-backstory. The regular back story is that all yesterday my coworker and I were discussing how effing FABULOUS Phoebe Snow is. She is this totally sexy R&B singer (And I do mean R&B and none of this Beyonce hullabaloo) from...

Paranormal In-Activity

All weekend I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Paranormal Activity but ya know what? I haven’t even seen it. The BF did. He went to a screening at Pixar because he is extra special and knows all the right people. Apparently they have shooting stars on their movie theater ceiling. But that is neither here nor there. Anyways… So Paranormal. He started to tell me about it that night but I was alone in the apartment since claire is off at a wedding in Portland and I made him stop cuz it was too spooky. The next morning, though, I was all tell tell tell. I figured it was light out and I had a whole day ahead of me so I...

Who the hell is she?


Lauren

I am a writer living in Seattle and I believe that life is a grand adventure and only boring if you believe it to be. Plus! You don't need money to have fun.

I live with my husband, a photographer by education and a maker-of-video-games by trade, and a baby named gabe in an apartment on the hill.

I am romantic about most things and I cry... about almost anything. I tell stories to entertain you, I spread stories to keep you in the loop. I am not a grammar freak, but I do know how to spell it. I am exceedingly proud of my scrambled eggs and I really could eat an entire pan of cupcakes. If I met me, I would be my best friend. I tend to be irreverent.

If you would like to chat with me or see what else I'm up to you can follow me on Twitter (betterinrealife), on facebook, or email me at betterinrealife at gmail.
