Simple yet addictive Higher or Lower Game

It's no secret that I'm a bit obsessed with online games. Anything that's fun and easy to pass time away is good by me. For the past couple days, I've been playing this new card game, Higher or Lower by 5in Internet Labs, and it's sucked me in as an addicted participant for more than a few minutes in hopes of beating my highest guessing streak of 29. Perfect way to cure a streak (ha, get it?!) of boredom.

What about you? Play the game and let me know if you were able to beat my score!

90's Fashion - Boy Meets World

One of my ultimate guilty pleasures: Boy Meets World. I have seen every episode at least once and own all the DVD sets that are out. Though most would write off the entire decade of the 90's fashion-wise, I think it has a certain something that's incredibly charming. This is evident especially in the earlier seasons of Boy Meets World. Call me crazy, call me biased, just call me a person who's severely missing her Doc Martens, but if these screen captures don't sway you to my side even in the slightest, I won't know what to say. . .

I honestly just became so thrilled with this website that I had to write something about it immediately. Miss Vintage is filled with all things vintage style and beauty. There's a plethora of information there on vintage styles from the 1900's to the 1980's: interviews with old style icons, old fashion and beauty articles, quick pages that describe the styles, makeup and hair of that decade, so you can easily get those looks yourself, profiles on major style icons of the past, how-to's, real snapshots from the decade, and much more. I can wait to spend time reading the site from head to toe, because I'm dying to do so now. You can tell that the webmistress, April, is extremely passionate and extremely well-informed about vintage fashion, and I love her for it.

The Red Paintings - Walls

The Red Paintings's EP, Walls, and the same-titled song never fail to blow me away. I love the video for the song quite a lot as well.

When Do Friends Become "Old Friends"?

(First grade field trip with some old friends. I'm on the left!)

I asked myself this question just yesterday. I first had to think about the definition of an old friend, and why they're called an old friend in the first place. Surely it wasn't how long you've known each other, or how much you like each other or get along, but rather that you were once good friends with them, and now you may not even know them anymore. You either live far away, or have drifted apart, and then instead of introducing them as a friend, you introduce them as an old friend. I've fallen victim to this many times. I guess it's useless to try preventing changes from happening, and drifting from happening.

Thinking about this in regard to my summer-long trip to New Orleans that is coming up, though, just made me sad when I realized that I don't really know any of my old friends any more. We grew apart, moved apart, and now I have a sinking feeling that they're all completely different and I wouldn't be able to recognize a spec of their personality by now.

This just made me wonder whether I'd want to bother trying to get together with old friends there, or not. With this, I thought: Maybe it's not too late to make new friends with my old friends. Get to know them again, however different or the same they might be. Thinking about this just fills me with hope that all of my old friendships are not lost.

I think that perhaps everyone should do this if they ever have a chance.

Coffin Joe: This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse

I caught a few minutes of this Brazilian horror film on IFC Halloween night last year, after a big bottle of wine and watching a French movie with a friend. The title burned in my brain, so I looked to see when they'd air it again, and they did! This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse is the follow up to At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul, and Coffin Joe is still looking for the perfect woman to create a son with. He puts the women in terrifying situations to see how they react, as he is looking for a fearless woman, apparently. The movie is a great bizarre little movie. One of those old ones where you laugh so hard because it's not very scary, but it's still awesome in any case.

Ice Cube Tray Update

There are many other ice cube options, apparently. In the first five minutes of my searching, I found out that you can make the following: bone shaped ice cubes (for the dog lover in you), star and fairy wand ice cubes, penis ice cubes, female silhouette ice cubes, skull and crossbone ice cubes, and heart and dolphin ice cubes. My personal favorite are the heart ice cube trays.
