Mostly moved

I don't really very often use this blog anymore. I still will, but my for-reals one is http://simpleglory.tumblr.com . I'm focusing more on my photography right now. My drawing is kinda in a slump at the moment, but I'll post again when it starts getting better.

This whole post is pretty much for Smithers. Noboby else looks at this blog anymore, anyhow.

Love always,
Rachelle

Spelling is good

Still very busy, but I'll leave you with this: Check what you write before you send it, print it, etc. I learned this from my own mistake of accidently turning "but sucks" into "but secks".

The Blobfish =3

The blobfish. So majestic. So elegant.... Ahahaha just kidding! It's been named the ugliest thing in the ocean by many. But as weird as it seems... I think it's so ugly it's cute. But they look sad that they're so ugly! =(

They are mostly composed of gelatin and are slightly less dense than the water around it, so they just float around just above the ocean floor like the little blobs that they are. And since they are mostly gelatin and have a very little muscle content, they just eat whatever floats their way and don't really make an effort to go after their prey .

So there you have your interesting animal fact of the day. You must be thrilled. =)

I'm a firin' mah laserrrr!!!

My cat... I was bored, okay?! XD

Zebras... how are they camouflaged?


So I was wondering... How the heck are zebras camouflaged???? I mean, what in their environment could they possibly blend into??? Because it's not like you see a ton of black and white zebra print stuff in the African savanna! But I thought to myself, "There must be a reason that they have these stripes, otherwise they would have been killed off by predators in a matter of days!" Following my thoughts, I looked it up.

The wavy lines of zebras blend into long grasses when the zebras are in few numbers. How? The lion, their main predator, is colorblind, so the black and white fits in perfectly with all of the other black and white that the lions see. When they are in their herds, on the other hand, they are pretty hard for the lions to miss. But the stripes of all of the zebras being close together makes it hard for the lions to distinguish just one zebra out of the group.

also, the stripes on zebras are unique on each one, so they also serve as ways that the zebras tell each other apart.
Soooo... yep. That's zebras for you. And believe it or not, their stripes actually aren't the stupidest camouflage ever, and thanks to them, the crocs in Pearls Before Swine
can continue to say "HELLO ZEBA NEIGHBA!!"

Story of my life #1


So I decided I'm just going to turn my life into a comic series. Here's the first one ever based off of ice skating on june 11th and how I'm sure it makes all you single people out there feel. Sorry, you're gonna have to click on it to read it. =P It kinda sucks, but for my first one, it's not too bad. Hope you like! =)

AHHHH!!!

I'm so sorry!! I wasn't able to post yesterday! To make up for it I'll double post today, okay? =)

Seals... I love them. ^-^

A pile of seals on a rock.
A pile of seals on a dock. (Look at the lil baby on the left by the post! =D ) Piles of seals here and there. piles of seals everywhere! =D

This little guy was sleeping. He was so sweet when he was awake though! =D not afraid of me at all! =) =)


They are just so cute! They remind me of little sea dogs. =D

A disappointment

The disappointment? in order to not break my amazing spree of updating my blog everyday, i'm just gonna talk and not post any of my interestingly bad art works. I haven't done any art today- i've been busy ice skating with emily, haley, ashley, briana, kyle, and daniel. =) you know, I really enjoy ice skating a lot. and when there aren't a lot of people on the ice, then ZOOOOOOOOOM! I'm a speed demon. =D I might even want to do that as a sport someday, speed-skating. I don't really fall anymore, just once in a blue moon.

you know what always gets me really parinoid, though? Small children on the ice. They always just decide to fall like right in front of me! And every time I'm like "SH*T! SH*T! I don't want to be the a$$ hole who runs over this little dude's arm!!" And so I end up amazingly leaping over them like the gazelle on ice that i am while they cower in fear from the freaking blades of doom on my feet like inches away from their face. And I always stick the landing. Even though I have absolutely no idea how. Because I mean, I skate for speed, not leaping and twirling like those little girls in their "way too short for any age" ice skating outfits.

And I understand that going ice skating is a great place for a date, but do they always have to play like a million love songs? Everytime I go I think the dude who D.J.'s the music like knows I'm there and tries to mess with me. (That's actually a really funny comic idea... I'll draw that and post it up later or something. ) He's back there with his little D.J. buddies and see's me and is like "alright, time for some slooooow songs" might as well give a shout out for me, too.... "Alright guys, you see this chick right here? Nobody wants to date her! AHAHAHAHA! *cough cough* yeeeeaaah soooo uh... lets all make her feel stupid, okay? cool, cool" =P Lol this actually is not out of anger or being upset because I'm single or anything, I honestly find my situations at the ice station hilarious. But as a comedian once told me : "When you're single, all you see are couples. And when you're part of a couple, all you see are hookers."

Wow so sorry guys that this post has been long and rambling, but hey it made me smile writing it and hopefully it made you smile reading it. =)

" Sweet little bumble bee, i know what you want from me. (doop di doop di doop dah dah, doop di doop di doop dah dah)!" haha that's the song that has been stuck in my head since ice skating .=P
And here is that very same song, just in case you were thinking "WOW! that seems like a pretty awesome song! I do wish there was a convienient video that I may click on to hear it!" =)

Random Pictures

So I figured since I didn't draw anything that I even slightly liked enough to post on here today, I figured I'd just post some randomly entertaining pictures. Some of which I personally have taken and photoshopped, others have me in it so obviously I could not have taken them.

Like, OMG, I like totally found a 4 leaf clover in my front yard!
Smithers on the prowl. It's Abby's eye! ...just photoshopped.
Yeah so for those of you who don't know... I was in a pageant.
Annnndddd these are two pictures from the photo shoot.

Soooo....

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
A woodchuck would chuck all the wood he could
If a woodchuck could chuck wood!

This rhyme makes me kinda sorta hate the word chuck...
And you know what other word sucks? Flab. and crusty... You know? There are just some words that I really really don't like. really. Do you people ever feel like that?

Oh, and sounds too! some sounds I really really hate. like when you do that thing with knives when you kinda rub the blades together fast and it makes that one noise. Or when people are cutting meat or something and they cut too far and it rubs on the plate and makes that screeching sound. or nails on cardboard...

And even touch. Certain places on me I really really hate having touched, even by me. Especially my akeley's heel. you poke me there and you will lose your face. =P

To my Abby...

Smithers.......

We became friends in seventh grade. Best friends in eighth. And sisters in ninth. But then you'll be gone. You've made me smile on every single day when all I wanted to do was cry. I wasn't really ready when you told us we'd have to say goodbye. And I'm still not. The moments we've shared will stay in my heart forever. The sunny side of life you bring wherever you go will, too. You are a little fire in my heart now. So don't let it go out. It keeps me going. In line with all the other flames. But if one goes out, there will be a space where it was once, and even it will never truly be gone... stay put where you are. Tomorrow is the last day of school with you. And Friday will be the last time everyone will be with you for a while. And even though I promised myself not to cry. It's kind of hard to do that remembering all of the little things you do that I might never see until who knows when. Your smile and your laugh. The way you hug dance with everyone. Who's going to do those things when you're gone? So, just in case you couldn't figure it out... I'll love you forever my secret agent sister. And someday I know we'll be going on adventures together again. But for now...
I'll miss you smithers.

Love forever and then some more,
Rachelle
