Plus I got that 80's song stuck in my head every time I picked up the book.
And then for easier fare I read the final book of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events.
I lurve this series. I love how wickedly clever it all is. I love how the books always start by trying to convince you to not read the book cause its so tragic. I just gotta say that Lemony better be working on more books cause I'm gonna need my fix of cleverness again.
And I watched The Iron Giant which was good and made me giggle in places. I liked the style of it - kinda old school. It did not however blow me away. I need to be astounded by something. I have oodles of more books and movies from my last library visit though so I'm sure there will be something amazing in the lot.

And here's the endless stars I've been working on. I'll have to make myself stop with the star-making and start with the garland-stringing before this gets even more out of hand.
Here's what I made in one night:
I quite like this one.
This was my first ever.
It reads "Steve could never hold his liquor."
I used a tape transfer on this one.

I also recently watched "Frida" and am so in love with the movie. Please share more suggestions for books, art, music, and movies to throw myself into. I have always been particularly taken with Mexican surrealism and colorful imagery (which makes it al the more nuts that I hadn't picked up this movie until now). Send me any ideas for keeping me in the wonderful dreamy bubble that I found myself in after watching this movie.

Please excuse the bad lighting. The jacket will be great for work - even though I'll only be able to wear the thinnest shirts under it. And the sweater was just too freakin adorable to not get. Can't wait for some warmer weather so I can actually wear it.
I also got a pretty plaid sundress that I'm gonna turn into headbands. And a sweater that I'm gonna unravel and dye the yarn. Oh and a pair of really cute black pumps.
And here's a few of the items close-up.
He's poo, right. Cause I think he's the most adorable poo who looks like he's pooing.
This I lurve so much. My very own octo-pillow. Cause I lurve me some octopi.
And the coolest coasters ever. People have been oohing and ahhing over them.

So my dog of the day is Yellow Dog. She's and 8 year old German Shepherd mix and so sweet looking.
Don't you just wanna squish her? Available at the Franklin County Animal Shelter if you're looking.
I think this film is gonna haunt me (in a good way) for a while. I may have to pick up the book someday soon.
