She & Him "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?"

In case you didn't know, gorgeous actress Zooey Deschanel is part of a duo called She and Him. I really love her voice and I think you will too.

Vintage Hottie of The Week

This week I've been on a Jayne Mansfield kick. Sure, she's a copycat Marilyn but she's still pretty cool.

Unfortunate child

No, it's not me as a child. This photo is of a girl named Christine from the 80's. I found it at this website is hysterical!

I think I'm in love with this woman

Christina Hendricks stars as Joan Holloway on AMC's vintage inspired tv show "Mad Men". She is absolutely gorgeous and is built like a true woman. I'm so excited to see hourglass shapes coming back into style!

Alain Delon:
He's a french actor from the 1950's & 60's. You've probably never heard of his movies but I really liked him in "Two Weeks In September" with my fave Brigitte Bardot

My visit to LACMA art museum

so in a mad rush to get this museum trip out of the way for a class, I overcame my fear of the LA bus system and made a trip to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which was absolutely fantastic, I even stopped by the La Brea tar pits to have a look and smell at the bubbling pit of goo.

Two totally random people I think should date

Robert Pattinson + Amy Adams
I think they would make a smashing couple. Although she is quite a bit older than him, i think her good girl/ spicy snapper attitude would compliment his offbeat, lovable quirkiness. What do you think?

Silly Words

Crop Dusting:

farting while walking;
walking while farting;
Ex. i crop dusted my way down the aisle at the grocery store

Thanksgiving pants:

Pants that are worn in anticipation of eating a huge meal (i.e. Thanksgiving dinner). These pants usually boast an elastic waist, to allow some give for that third helping of sweet potato pie.
Ex. The girls and I are going to a buffet for dinner, so I'm wearing my Thanksgiving pants.

Shuffle Shame:

"Shuffle shame" is when your mp3 music player is playing on speakers in shuffle mode, and somebody enters the room at the exact moment the worst song of your collection is being played.
Ex. I felt shuffle shame when Tony came to the office today, my iPod was playing Paris Hilton's single as he came in.
Here's mine:

Moby - When It's Cold I'd Like to Die

*The name originally caught my attention because that's generally how I feel about cold weather since moving to California. However, I took a listen and found this song to be very relaxing, beautiful, and peaceful.

*60's German actress most famous for roles starring as Miss Moneypenny in Casino Royale, as Kalinda in Star Trek, By Any Other Name, as Patrizia in Non si sevizia un paperino and as Mrs Schermerhorn in Gangs of New York.

Really awesome water photography

Fotoopa is a Flickr user from belgium who has a shot a collection of highspeed photography of water figures. Using some homemade hardware that involves lasers, the photographer captures water dropping and splashing in perfect frozen detail. The water is made even more captivating because of the vivid colours used. Each shot freezes the action in mid-splash, allowing the viewer to see the out of this world forms created. - The Flickr Set.

*I think these are just gorgeous they really look like amazing glass sculptures but they're not.

Post a personals ad and this is what you get...

So I got myself an account on Yahoo! personals with the intent of laughing at any poor sucker that attempts to communicate with me. This week I received this winner in my mailbox.

"Hallo, Natalia...
I love very much to see your photos on my internet. You are the woman whom I am so interested in because I see your long blonde hair, white, and I hope smart,kind heart, family-minded too.
Ohya, I live in Jakarta-Indonesia, postgradute, and now I am so seriously looking for a pretty woman to share my life as a friend or more. I dont know you respond my interest or not. But, if possible, please send me your nice message by email, chat, or mail as well.
Natalie, have you heard about my country, Indonesia ? whenever you intend to visit my country, please contact me before."
Thanks a lot and love to see you again.
Best regards,
Didik S

I'm guessing he probably looks something close to this picture in real life
So many things wrong with this message! But lets start with the positive- he loves seeing images of me very much- that's definitely an ego booster. Yes, I do happen to be white and have long blonde hair. Thanks for noticing. Also note how he says "hope to see you again"- as if. Especially since he's never seen me. Also, Natalia? That's not even my name. If you ever want to have a shot you better get my name right. Did I also mention this dude is 38 and still lives with his parents?

Sorry Didik, I'm never coming over to Indonesia and I will not be sending you nice messages or sharing my life with you.
