Winter Break

Yes!! It is finally Winter Break!! My first weeekend of Winter Break and I can't even relax. My sister has two birthday parties to go to and they are both ice skating. Sorry I could post this last week, I had about 10,000,000 Projects to do. I have been so busy as well as exhausted. Here is a little spec of winter whether you are expecting a white Christmas or not.

(I'm not, this is California here!)

Some of you may say that I am a lazy blogger and I don't post that much, but you are wrong. I am teaching you readers about the art of patience. So there! Oh, that reminds me, I gotta write an essay about patience. More later.

PTED-Post Traumatic Election Disorder Part 2

I am so exhausted, I think I have PTED (see above). I am so over all this election stuff. I have had enough until the next election. If you would like to see the original post about PTED, check out tash's blog post on PTED here:

Also, if you want to see what PTED feels like, here you are:

Shortbread Cookies

Here is my most coveted shortbread cookie recipe, (which Tash has been begging for)out for the world to see:

3/4 cup flour, sifted

1/4 cup superfine sugar

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup room temperature unsalted butter

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Work in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the dough has the consistency of short crust.
Pulsing in a food processor will work also.
Sprinkle a board or your counter top lightly with flour. Turn the dough onto the board and knead until it's smooth. Refrigerate the dough for a couple of hours or overnight.
You should have approximately 8 ounces of dough. Divide the dough into four equal portions for large cookies or eight equal portions for small cookies and shape into rounds.
For consistency you might want to pull out your kitchen scales.
Place each round on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and flatten them with the bottom of a glass to about 1/4 inch thickness. Prick with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 20 to 30 minutes, until the cookies begin to brown slightly. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet.
Hope you like them.


I won't get too hung up on the election, but I really feel that our country is falling into a deep, dark hole, and Barack Obama is just gonna keep digging. I really was hoping for McCain to win (although I'm not a huge Palin supporter) in order to help our country. My friends (who are mostly democrats) said that "John McCain is just too old", or "he'll die in office, do you really want Palin for President?" but the fact of the matter is, he is not that old. My Granddad is 87 years old, that is 15 YEARS OLDER THAN JOHN MCCAIN! and he doesn't show any signs of dying any time soon. SO WHY DO YOU THINK JOHN MCCAIN WILL DIE IN OFFICE IF HE WAS ELECTED?

Ok I'm done with my little diatribe (ooh good word. Mr. Conroy would be proud.)

End of the Quarter

Whew! I made it through the first quarter. It was tough. I was out sick on Tuesday and I had to retake a math test. The problem is, we only have math every other day, and we had friday off. I had to take it after school while I was supposed to be at a yearbook staff meeting. I've also been trying to finish all these end of the quarter assignments and my homework, while trying to learn my lines for theatre arts. THERE ARE JUST NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY!!! But I made it. r u happy tash!! (she says I never post pics)

Oh my gosh, this is the first day I don't have a sore throat. I've had a sore throat for a week. Anyways, that is not why I was gonna post.

This is my absolute addiction and happily, they have started selling it at school.

Pure Genius.

Lazy Blogger

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh. lazy blogger, blah, blah, blah. make all the jokes. Yeah I've been kinda sick OK and I've been tired. I have to get up even earlier now because I started a zero period class and I have to be there at seven. It is so early. I had a story to tell of what happened today but I am so tired that I just forgot it. Sorry. Oh Well. *yes, my excuse worked!*
Just Kidding, I really did forget my story.

Sunday, 14 September 2008


I've really been very lazy to post anything but I have a little joke for you. Courtesy of Wesley Harada's Lack of Spanish Vocabulary. I don't know if you will find this funny but I certainly did when it occurred. This happened in class on Friday: The teacher told us if we were done, we could have a 3 minute siesta. (Now obviously Wesley has never taken Spanish because he replied:)
"I'm too tired to have a party."
The teacher replied, "Then take a siesta like I told you."
Then Shane kindly reminds Wesley that siesta means 'nap' in Spanish. Wesley then says," Oh," and laughs his head off like he always does.

SO busy

I've been so busy, starting school, vacation, my birthday coming up, that I haven't had time to blog. Ok, that's a lie, yah I've been busy with all those things but I've also been kinda lazy.
I just wanted to do a shout out to my cousin, it's his b-day today.

Happy B-Day Jack!!!!!

hope it was a good one.

School starts in 3 days. I am excited for 8th grade, but also a bit nervous because I have to start thinking about high school. There is so much pressure. I feel like the summer just flew by. Anyways, why don't you guys comment about your best or worst school memory?

Thursday, 14 August 2008

Clarification is Key

I see through your commenting that you did not realize that it was paige posting about the milk, not me. Be sure to check the bottom of the post to see who has posted that day. For instance, Tash you said you long for Paige's sassiness but did you really mean me or did you mean her?
That is why you must clarify who you are talking to when you comment on the blog.


Ok, I sorta told you that Paige was gonna be a contributor but I didnt know when, since she never checks her email. Sorry for the rude awakening of Paige because I was on vacation AND DIDNT GET THE MEMO FROM PAIGE THAT SHE WAS GONNA START POSTING!!! Anyways I feel that she should have introduced herself more properly as in saying something like, "Lauren has asked me to join her in her blogging days..." She also shgould have said that while she posted about milk, she should have mentioned that she is Lactose intolerent. One more thing while I go off ranting, Paige, my name is Lauren, remember? Not Laura, thanks

Cars, Cars, and more Cars

Me with my dream car in the Mercedes showroom. BTW, my dream car is a Mercedes G-class G55 AMG. (also known as The Original Mercedes)

More Editing

The before picture is in the previous post, because since I edited it, it replaced the original.
I layered neon lights affect with the flourescent chalk layer to get this affect.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

For my aunt's wedding shower, we are doing a breakfast at Tiffany's theme. We are going to have crazy makeup. hair, and retro clothes. I am pretty sure on what hairstyle I want to do because I found a how-to video on Youtube. Here is the video if you want to watch it:

Also, I already tried the hairstyle on my sister and here's how it turned out:

Broken Promise

It's been about 2 minutes and I have already broken my philosophical promise. Oh well. I am trying to make my blog more poetic so here is a poem about a broken promise:

A promise of yes that does turn to no, is a sad and painful review.

It runs through your mind, thoughts bad and unkind, self doubt displaces the truth.

You tend to accept your inner most faults instead of just looking toward pain.

You beat yourself down, your head to the ground the feeling just drives you insane.

So if you give your word, a promise to one, prepare to make it come true .

For if you turn sour, change your mind in the hour then you're painting the others world blue.

Overdoing It

Ok how do you like that I don't post for like 3 weeks, then I do 3 posts in one day. As my dad always says, "It's better to do 80% of the job 100% of the time than do 150% of it only 10% of the time. " Long story short, without the philosophy, don't overdo it. Or in other words, balance is key (also one of his philosophies). I will try to live by these philosophies when I am older, but until then, blog away!

Aww, how cute, I'm getting all poetic.

New Background

WOW, I posted two days in a row! Anyways due to the new background, the playlist and the hit counter got deleted. I had been meaning to update the playlist anyways, but (shocker!), I was too lazy. So I made a new playlist, put in a music video on the side panel, and there will no longer be a hit counter. If you have any ideas as to how to make the blog better, feel free to comment them.

Busy, busy, busy

Sorry I haven't written in a while (more like three weeks), but I have been really busy with volleyball camps. I've been exhausted and pained (is that a word?). I am in the process of letting my friend become a publisher but she is even more a slacker than I am (correct grammar? idk). Anyways, I also tried to get the cancun pics up again, but the computer like scheduled it or something, then it deleted itself. Long story short, I am to lazy to redo the page. We got a new copier, fax machine, scanner, so I might put some non-digital pics on. I have also discovered that my dad has 2 (that's two unopened) adobe photoshops so those might be used for pictures. I also got a webcam so now i can take random pics of myself. That was a lot of info, *wipes sweat off forehead* I think I will take a nap now. *laziness triumphs again*

Sad Day for Purple Writing

I will no longer be writing in purple (or at least while i have this template) because it doesn't match anymore. It makes my blog look like a bruise. Therefore, I will now be writing in this color because I feel, it matches better.

You may now begin your mourning for purple. Start the eulogies......*painful funeral music in the background*

*sob* *sob* ;***(

work week

I have just heard recently (about a week ago) that they are considering changing the work week in Utah to only four days a week. (That's good news for u Bman.) They are considering doing this to conserve energy. I wish California would conserve energy in this way. Post your comments on this topic as it is my first news report type post.

I forgot

I forgot to mention that from now on, my croatian friend will be known as Croatia. Ok thanks.

blogger post

I really don't know what to post about so whatever. Here goes nothing. For the 4th of July I went to my cabin up near Yosemite. We hung out with our neighbors up there and we saw fireworks. I will put pictures of the fireworks tomorrow. I promise. I will push myself to put them on the computer. Ok so, my friend from Croatia (she came a year ago) is still stuck with her old lady Croatian fashion. We have set out to give her an Americanized makeover. It should be finished right before we enter eighth grade in the fall. This is going to be our best year ever, I can just tell. More later on how it is going. BTW, I will post a before and after picture of her.

Song and Skyscraper

It is special occasion so I am not writing in my usually font or purple coloring. I am writing about my new song on my blog. It is dedicated to my friend skyscraper (or skis). The song is being dedicated to her because it's from our favorite movie, Blades of Glory. Ehem, this is how Chazz sings it during the movie. You may recall: I don't wanna close my eyes. I don't wanna fall asleep cause I miss you Jimmy and I don't wanna miss you JIMMY!!! Might I add that he sings very off key.

Skyscraper, congrats on going to high school. I see you still look like a 15 year old girl but not hot.

I'm out.

Finally a new post!!

Yah I am finally posting again but I can't remember what purple I posted in. Hopefully this is the right one. Anyways, I have been on vacation. I went to Club Med Cancun. I had so much fun except on the last day when we were leaving, I started to get a bit sick. I have been sick for like the last few days so that delayed my posting even longer. Anyways, Club Med has so many activities to try. I tried kayaking, sailing, water skiing, trapeze (ahh! scary), aqua aerobics in the ocean, and I was in a dance production. For the dance production I had to memorize two dances in one hour. It was hard but it was fun. We were mermaids and pirates from Peter Pan. We also did a lot of swimming in the pool not so much the ocean. The resort has a private lagoon that they use especially for waterskiing (is that one word or two? hmmm I wonder). I will post some pictures of my trip later. As of now they aren't on the computer yet. Maybe I'll use the slideshow function if I can get it to work.

P.S. There are these HUGE iguanas at the resort. They just walk around everywhere. It's freaky. My dad says that he had a stuffed one when he was a kid. (like a used-to-be-alive-but-is-now-dead-and-stuffed-one.

Bad Blogger Again

Ok I have been very bad with my posts. I haven't posted in 10 days. Yesterday, the 11th, I got out of school for summer vacation and went to Great America. I went with my friend who from now on will be called Poj (pronounced pozhj). We went to Great America and had a blast, we got kinda sick and soaked but it was fun. We did the go karts and I kept cutting her off until she passed me. Poj tried to drag me on the Endeavor (its one of those rides that is like a boat and it goes around in a circle and flips upside down), but I wouldn't go. Haha anyways we had fun.

whipped cream for crepes

Back to my old font again. Here is a recipe for homemade whipped cream for the crepes.


1/2 pt. whipping cream
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Whip cream with mixer. Be careful not to overbeat or else will get too thick like butter. When it begins to thicken, add sugar and vanilla; stir. Refrigerate.

crepes avec le fruit

Ok I said I would post it and here it its. (btw different font today)

Crepes avec les fruit:
Ingredients: 1 tbsp of sugar
1 tbsp butter or margarine
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 1/3 cups milk
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup flour

Other possible fillings:
syrup (blueberry's my fave, thx Aspen Mills)
cinnamon sugar
homemade whipped cream
powdered sugar

Mix together the sugar, butter, and egg in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer. Mix on low until the butter is in tiny pieces.

Add the baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla to the bowl. Mix in well with the electric mixer.

Add the flour and milk about 1/3 of each at a time ( to prevent lumps) mixing on low or medium (depending on your mixer). Mix until smooth.

Fruit Filling:

Put 2 cups of frozen fruit in a saucepan with 1/4 cups sugar (don't add water, the fruit contains all the water you wil need).

Heat on medium stirring occasionally to make sure the sugar doesn't burn. Bring it to a simmer until the fruit is softened.

After the crepes have been made, put the fruit inside your folded crepe.

Cook the crepes:

Stir crepe batter well with a wooden spoon.

Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium.

Put 1/4 cup of batter ( for a medium skillet) OR 1/8 cup for a small skillet into the pan. Quickly swirl the pan around evenly coating the bottom of the inside of the pan with a thin layer of batter.

Wait about 1 minute until the batter looks completely dry on top.

When your crepe looks dry, carefully slide a scraper spatula under it and flip it onto a plate.

Fill with the fruit or any other topping and fold over. Add whipped cream or powdered sugar to the top for an added taste.

Repeat to make as many as you like then ENJOY!

Wednesday, 21 May 2008

For those of you who don't know what heliotrope is, it is a type of purple. It is about this color. Sometimes a bit darker but pretty close. It was more of an inside joke with me and Paige but either way. Now u know wut it is.
