adventures in zoology {and other things of note}

Monday, June 4, 2012






I was going to post the two pictures I took of a flamingo and elephant while at the zoo on Sunday, but I decided that they invoked their respective smells all too properly. Anyhow, I had fun and took some pretty pictures before my phone died, which all the awesome flowers decided was their cue to enter. Seeing as I can't talk much more about the zoo without finding some way to poetically describe the oh-so savory smell of goats, I think I'm going to list some of the things I've enjoyed lately.

music
I'm into ridiculously mainstream music. Think Disney Channel stars, Big Time Rush, One Direction and... I might have an entire blog post if I named them all.




twitter
I had a frank, not-so-good opinion of facebook and twitter before now: addictive, self-centered and an excuse to spew your opinions to the world. I mean, that's what blogging is for, people! No character limit either, haha. But I have to admit, tweeting's fun. With the limit, you don't waste your words and learn the basics of cutting from your writing ruthlessly. I'm now up to over a hundred tweets {not a word from you people with 9- and 10,000}, but don't expect me to get a facebook anytime soon. The thing is evil.

hot pink shoes
I adore hot pink. So much I have to be considerate of my male readers when redesigning. And now everyone from Beyoncè {how dare you not have her name in the dictionary, spellcheck! :O} to motorcyclists are wearing hot pink shoes. I couldn't be happier.

pausing music videos
I love pausing music videos. Why? Because the stars almost always look like total idiots. Okay, when I put it that way it sounds a little mean, but think silly faces, crazy hair and crossed eyes. I'm dying just thinking about that one time...

annika the hat
It is a recurring joke among my internet friends to refer to me as that, since my profile picture on here and a couple other sites is of me in a straw hat, heavily edited to hide what you could barely see anyways in the original. But as far as I'm concerned, they're Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano and blonde streaked brown hair, goggles and a scarf... so it's all good. :P

these posts
Herehere and here. Enjoy.

this head is sweaty,

  1. Personally, I kind of like the smell of goats...and barnyards...and animals...but then, I grew up with those smells, so I guess that's not too much of a surprise. ;)

    I totally know what you mean about Facebook, by the way. Facebook is horrible! I got off a year or two ago, after a big huge drama among me and my sister's group of friends. Blech, it was horrible. And Facebook is just...nope, getting back on is not likely from my current perspective. However, I do kinda like Twitter. :)

    Also, love the leaves in that second photo! So cool. :D

  2. My sister and I were watching an episode of TVD a couple months ago. I went to get a snack, so my sister paused it. This is what happened: https://twitter.com/xoxoalexisleigh/status/195378521319817216/photo/1/large
    She even felt the need to tweet it. I had actually tried to scroll through her 1,000+ posts to find this one before realizing I could just look at her pictures. -_- *facepalm*
