10 things... jan 7 - 14

another week has passed...
a lot of things have happened...
see #1 for one of those things...
also we've been actually talking about the last 100 days of school and I totally gave up on hoping for good grades on my interdisciplinary project for school...

1. Getting back together with my lovely boyfriend Sam.
Just because I love him!

2. Oreo
You know, those delicioous cookies that taste like chocolate more than any other!

3. Banana phone
Due to STEVEN. Also check http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5C6X9vOEkU

4. Bigga Than Ben.
The most amazing film I've seen this week, involving very serious stuff, which I'm not usually into very much, but I really liked it.

5. London Bus - toy car.
Lode is just overcute when he plays with his toy cars, and the little red bus is his favourite.

6. THIS photo of Ben Barnes.
Ben just has the cutest smile ever on it!

7. Food colouring.
They just brighten up my bakings!

8. Pizza Hut.
Their pizzas have such good crusts!

9. Wikipedia.
One of the most useful websites ever to find out minor details about things you didn't even need to know... Also referring to urbandictionary.com lol.

10. Chess boards.
Don't ask me why, I just like the way some of them can give me this enchanted feeling, as if they were from another world...

greatest disappointment of the week:
Napoleon Dynamite.
I really don't see what everyone seems to like about it that much.
Maybe my expectations were too high to start with, but I still didn't like it all that much.

Love, yours, forever

C'row ♥


10 things I liked most this week...?

this is my very own HOLIDAY SPECIAL!!!
I guess every one of you lovely people celebrated Christmas with family, friends, yummy food and loooooots of presents, so here are my top 15 presents and thingies of 2008's holidays!

1. Twilight and New Moon
I had already read both books, but now I finally got them as a present from my best friend, who is really very amazing! I love them! and her!

2. Stardust.
I honestly just think this is an amazing film and I was VERY happy when I got it on DVD as a gift from my grandma.

3. Across the Universe
The Beatles are really one of those bands that made an impact on me in my life. Their songs have helped me through some difficult times like hardly any other band would've been able to... Then suddenly, there's this musical with basically only Beatles' songs... and I got it for Christmas too. [I know, I basically only got books and DVDs for Christmas.]

4. The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
I honestly don't care about the people who say that JK Rowling is a greedy b*tch for getting this published, because I think it's a really lovely book with lovely fairy tales in it. Besides, it's for charity. Also a Christmas present^^

5. Cupcake Magic.
A present from a great new friend I got to know in 2008. It's a cookbook which basically only has cupcake recipes, but it's really amazing. And so are the cupcakes I've made with those recipes. I believe Kate Shirazi is a wonderful cook. LOL.

6. My new corset.
Haaaah I just love corsets... but this one was really cool to buy too because there were some friends of mine with me that day that I hadn't seen in quite a long time and we had so much fun! Pieter, C├┤zmo, Claire, K'vin & Nico... I love you sexypeeps! <3.

7. Brisingr.
Christopher Paolini is the MAN dude! I'd already read it, but this Christmas I finally got my own copy of Brisingr so that my book beam no longer has that empty spot next to Eragon and Eldest anymore.

8. Hairspray.
One of the feel good films I've seen during my weeks off 'cause of the holidays... I got it from my bestie K'vin, and even though I didn't really think it was going to be exactly what I expect [or more: like] in films, I thought it was a really nice film!

9. The Sound of Music and Home Alone.
Or more: watching those all time Christmas classics, that I always watched when I was little, again. With the family. And friends. :)

10. Snow.
Even though the snow didn't really start falling until after the holiday, it's still nice to have snow in this little country for almost a week. As the Belgians on here will confirm, we don't really get a lot of snow, and certainly not for this long.

11. Money.
I guess you'll all have to agree with me on this. Christmas is a nice holiday for your bank account too. And I do know this top number might come over a bit greedy, but aren't we all happy when we get some money for 'nothing'?

12. Neil Cicierega.
He's just this amazing guy who made me laugh this vacation.

13. De 4 Bollekes.
It's a shop where you can buy sweets and pasta and things like that, but all in really original packings and things like that. It's really nice and if you'd ever get to Heist, you'd really have to go check it out.

14. Starbook.
A book by Ben Okri. I think it's going to be a really good book, even though I have only just started reading...

15. Sandeman.
Not because I'm an alcoholic, but because I bought a bottle of Sandeman Porto for my grandpa, whom I basically only see two or three times a year. We talked about Mr. Sandman [by The Andrews Sisters] too because of it and we had a nice time.

Love, yours, forever

C'row <33

PS. For those of you who haven't heard/read it yet, a very lovely 2009!!!!


first song of 2009

Dear Mr. and/or Mrs. Sender
We're pleased to inform you that your application's been accepted
Starting from the time you get this letter
Your life will be one never-ending "hope you're feeling better"

You get your choice of an aesthetic, ah, ah, ah, ah
We need to chop your clock off, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock
It may not be what you expected, ah, ah, ah, ah
There is no money back once you've been ripped off, ripped off, ripped off

Today's a very special day, ah
The boys'll murder for it, but what will the neighbors say
It leaves you feeling pretty hollow
It might be nice to look at, don't forget you're stuck with it
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow

You're big enough to stop pretending
You'll start to really show within a week or so
So don't go saying it's just come to your attention, ah, ah, ah, ah
You'll get more than you're asking for without the right protection

Today's a very special day, ah
And how you'd love to have a little thing with which to play
But love won't get you very far, oh
Today be still your beating heart, you'll have to keep on feeding it
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow

Boys will be boys, will be boys, will be boys, will be boys
Will be boys, will be girls with no warning, ah
Girls will be girls, will be guys, will be boys that don't cry over toys
That they use to beat girls they despise by the morning, oh
They always said that sex would change you
Change you, change you, change you

No second thoughts, the knife is nearing
You'll never hear the little pitter patter, pitter patter
Of this little feat of engineering, ah, ah, ah, ah
Of course I love you, and of course it's what's inside that matters

But I think the whole charade is ending, ah, ah, ah, ah
It seems to me to be the only way to keep from getting
Caught up in a long life of regretting
The doctors say that once you get a taste for it you'll keep on cutting

But while we happen to be here, ah
Why don't you whisper all those sweet forevers in my ear
Stiff upper lip in all this sorrow
Hurry up and stick it in, you never know when it will end

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow

Ah, They always said that sex would change you
Change you, change you, change you

[Sex Changes - The Dresden Dolls]

I just love it.
