Hi-hat cupcakes were...
How do I put this… Interesting? Challenging. Wayyy harder than expected. They take a lot of patience, which I have none of, particularly at 11 at night. Here’s a little preview:
It’s Wednesday. I haven’t recommended a webcomic in a while. Today, I would recommend Lackadaisy by Tracey Butler. It’s short, so it’s easy to catch up on, but it doesn’t update very often, which for some people who don’t check it daily, that may be preferable. So! Lackadaisy is a story about prohibition in the twenties in St. Louis. The tale of a speakeasy...
Robert Downey Jr.: Deciding factor of everything
Angie: DUE DATE! We have to see this.
Me: What's it about?
Me: DEAL! I'm in.
I got a lot of likes, but no answers
So I’ll just assume I don’t have an accent and that people are just crazy.
Back with a small Georgia Mud Fudge blizzard.

I want pistachio ice cream.
Or ice cream in general. Considering going to DQ…
I go ahead and slave over the stove
So my brother can have some fried rice because rice is one of the only things he can eat right now, and the little jerk goes and plays video games. That boy is going to piss off so many future girlfriends: “I know you’re feeling sick, so I brought some soup” “Yeah. Put it over there” “Gee. You’re welcome:

themartyrdomofsaintme replied to your video:So. Do I have an accent? Also, sorry it’s all… your expressions are very commercial Which expressions? Facial or verbally?
Upon further study,
I have rather large eyes, don’t I? Well… Wide eyes? I dunno. They look big. Not bad big. Just big.
Jalapéno popper dip! Annie’s Eats, you are my hero http://annies-eats.com/2010/10/21/jalapeno-popper-dip/
So. Do I have an accent? Also, sorry it’s all shakey, I was holding my laptop.
Baking hi-hat cupcakes tomorrow after work!!
I’m tempted to make the cupcakes now, actually so that I just have to ice and dip tomorrow, but I want them to be very fresh, so I’ll probably just be up late tomorrow night. It’s ok. I’ll force someone to come help me :P Expect lot’s of pictures, plus the inaugural post on the food blog I’ve set up. I’ll post a link when there’s something worth...
I should probably change my picture thing for my...
When I go away November 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th
They have this dance on the last night every year. And every year, we all dance and sing to the Time Warp. Everyone knows the words. It’s the place I learnt the song when I was 13. I miss that place so much and I can’t wait. I know I’ve already talked about it briefly, but I’m getting really excited. It’s the most spiritual place I’ve ever been and I’m...
Anyone have any blogs to recommend?
I’d like to follow a few more.
Brittany is the perfect Columbia… And I enjoy Sam as Rocky… A lot. *Cough* Wow.
Tell me about yourself
www.followalise.tumblr.com/ask Another few followers (Where are you even coming from?), so get to know me, or let me get to know you.
Well, I'm kind of a douche bag.
It wasn’t my fault, but I still feel bad. Won’t go into details, but definitely foot in mouth…
On quickly, then off to work.
I don’t have time to study for my midterm… fuck… Double fuck. My GPA wouldn’t even be a problem if I hadn’t taken and failed math over the summer -__-
tearriffic replied to your post: tearriffic replied to your post: Just so you’re… i guess when i’m single i have a hard time crushing i always just end up flirting with everyone but i find most people bore me, thankfully i have someone who constantly keeps my attention I had my first crush when I was 3. He was my god brother’s best friend. And 15 years old. Then he moved to...
Ugh, fine! I'm awake!
Gonna try and hit the old hay sack.
I have a long day tomorrow. School. Work. School / mid term.
tearriffic replied to your post: Just so you’re caught up hahaha wow you have a lot of crushes i always had a hard time just finding one Haha, well when I’m single, I’m constantly crushing. I’m like a bunny with ADD. “Mate? Mate?” or something like that, but when I’m actually in a relationship, I don’t notice anyone else. It’s like my brain...
Just so you're caught up
For those of you that are new, I have nicknames for the many of my crushes (you’ll get used to the boy crazy nature) The Acrobat - the regular customer at the coffee shop who’s an acrobat and opening a circus school Beauty Mark - the cute guy in my film class who has taken to ignoring me… we used to talk a lot… now he continually sits right next to me, but pretends I...
We are so testing this accent thing.
I’ll vlog or something silly. It’d be no big deal if it was one person, but multiple people assume there is something exotic about the way I speak, and I am ridiculously curious now.
On the plus side:
Because there’s always a plus side, first day at the on-campus cafe was good. People are nice. And I flirted with the Vamp (My crush on the bus from fall semester, 09) He complimented me on my yoshi shirt. “I dig the yoshi shirt” Attention ladies: Men dig the yoshi shirt. Also, I got asked again if I was born in Canada. Apparently today I sounded British,...
So, I have no idea what I'm doing with my life...
So, I have resolved that this summer I’ll be marrying rich. Because as I see it, if I can’t use my feminine wiles and child bearin’ hips to get what I want, then why the fuck am I still bleeding on a monthly basis? I’m pretty sure I’m kidding. I’m just really sick of accounting. And trying to get grades to get into UBC. And working. And not knowing if...
Do you ever just look at flight prices?
Just look at them. Look at what you can afford. Look at what you can’t. And think about how easy it would be to just book one and go.
I should go visit my grandmother soon...
I can’t really stand Calgary, but I really should go out and visit. Weekends with grandma are hard. And long. And sometimes it ends with me near tears, racing for the airport, but it’s important. She means well. She just does it with a healthy dose of crazy. But yeah, I figure maybe at some point, since I have weekends off, I’ll drive up. Maybe see the family in Edmonton as...
I love cuddling up with the charger for my mac
You know mac chargers. They have that little box thing. And it warms up like crazy when you’re charging it. I lie on it when I’m cold. Warmth <3

Welcome! Tell my about yourselves! Ask me something. Tell me why you’re following. Recommend something for me to bake! There are few enough of you that I’m able to get to know all of you :) www.followalise.tumblr.com/ask
Trying to decide on shoes for Halloween
I’m starting to feel as though the green heels I bought scream “this costume is an excuse to slut it up.” I want maybe some boots that are kind of…. fairy-ish… you know? I need to hit Wallmart and Talize and look… and learn to love myself in a corset again because last night sucked. All by Friday.
A while ago,
Like, 2 fridays ago, we were having a staff meeting, filling out our tax sheets. I exclaimed that I didn’t understand this stupid form, and was informed that the rest was only for married people and people with kids. Then my manager noted it was only one of us. We all said yeah. I then said, jokingly, “Well, he lives in Europe” Everyone then looked at me and was like...
I desperately want a hug.
A massive, huge bear hug that I’m completely dwarfed in. I love hugs.
I came home from dinner at a friends:
Me: You eat?
Petit frere (little brother): Cookies.
Me: Excellent! Healthful! Now I'm gonna get changed, and we're going to watch some men in tights!
Petit frere: I'm going to my room.
Me: But! It's Robin Hood!
Me: ... Real men can appreciate other men in tights, Nolen!
As a side note:
Thursday and Friday will be my last opportunity to see / gaze at the acrobat / future father of my limber circus babies. And the Mediterranean Adonis. But he’s a story for another day. As are the Australian Bromance. As you can guess, I enjoy nicknaming my crushes. There’s also Beauty Mark. I’d call him Cutie in Film, but that seemed too generic.
I just looked at the beer goggles picture again and I’m smiling.
Suddenly, I feel ridiculously fat...
Was prancing around in my halloween costume and I dunno. Looked at myself and suddenly felt fat. It’ll pass. Trust me, I’m not looking for anyone to tell my otherwise. If I wanted a self esteem booster, I’d ask for one. I try not to hint, I’m a blunt person. Just a statement. It’ll pass. And these indulgent, melancholy moments will remain few and far between. I...
I forgot the key to the chains that lock the patio up in my sweater… back to work -__-
But not for long. I’m half-changed, and about to go window shopping with a friend. (When will I ever learn? Nap, Alise! Nap! Obviously, I’m not napping because I have no one to nap with. And everyone know’s I’m terrible at being alone for longer than bed time. And even then, I’d like that bit changed as well…) Anywho, last opening shift at the coffee house....
This is my last 8:30 bed time
For a while, at least. Tomorrow is my last opener, then for my last week, I’m doing some 10 - 6s and a 6 pm - 12:30 am, which isn’t so bad. Only 6 and a half hours. Then I’m done. I realise how lucky I am as a student to get a job that’s not weekends and with decent hours, and I plan to treasure this job until I transfer schools because, let’s face it....
