Hello bloggy friends! I hope the holiday season treated you kindly, and if not FUCK IT IT'S OVER!
Truth be told, I'm tired y'all. I crocheted the hell out of Christmas (post to come soon!) and the holiday felt like it lasted a month. I guess it did! I'm looking forward to 2012 though- even if the world ends.
I'm spending New Year's sleeping on the couch with my lovey and a bottle of champagne. Y'all have fun out there and DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE. OR TEXT AND DRIVE. OR TEXT WHILE DRINKING AND DRIVING.
With that being said (yelled, whatever) let's do a monthly gift/2011 round up, shall we?
+New blogs I've found and enjoyed:
-Amazing crochet blog en Español and English called Bigú Handmade! So many amazing patterns impeccably laid out!
-Feeling Stitchy, embroidery porn and inspiration. String is the most fantastic medium, I swear.
-Fat Girl Posing, awesome photos (some NSFW) and body positive resource. Yay!
-Fatshion bloggess supreme SheDel has some amazing thrifty outfits at My Thrifted Closet.
+My favorite post:
The Dream House series! Check it out! The Aviary is coming down the tube very soon! :D
+Movies I've watched:
A Christmas Story! I just leave the marathon they show on teevee every year on as background noise on Christmas Eve. "You'll shoot your eye out!"
I'm not the first one to say this, but you guys 2011 was kind of a shitty year for movies. Now, 2012 on the other hand, is full of promises.
Need I say more?!
+Creepiest Clown of 2011!
Now this was difficult, but I think it has to be this guy:
+YouTube videos that made me teehee:
Fantastic stop motion video of Mario in the real world.
I have somehow infected everyone in my family with Nyan Cat. As a bonus, it's hard to be dramatic and talk about uncomfortable holiday dinner topics with Nyan Cat in the background.
Don't act like you've never wanted to do this. Dancing With An iPod in Public - Footloose
Watch this froggie video. Just do it, it's less than 30-damn-seconds!

+Exciting happenings IRL:

Matt let me paint his toenails pink and green on Christmas day because he loves me. Just on one foot though.
