Ramona Flowers

Hello, largely fictitious audience! It's been a little while.

I suppose not that long comparatively, since I've been posting every couple weeks or so, but whatever. Time is relative, and I feel like it's been ages, and since I'm the writer here, what I say counts significantly more than reality.

That's why I started this blog isn't it? To share my bottomless wellspring of BS with the world at large?

Also, on an absolutely irrelevant side note, I have to tell you all that chocolate cereal is the best idea ever. Whoever created it and then put it into mass consumption has my undying gratitude.

This stuff. It's magic.

I should start a list of people that have my undying love or hatred based on something that wanders through my brains. Like shoe tongues! I hate them -.-

Anyways! The point of this blog, as you might well have guessed from the title, (clever little beasts,) is one of my favorite fictional people ever. Ramona!

In case you weren't aware, my profile picture is currently Ramona Flowers. That particular incarnation of her is from the comic books (I hesitate to call it a graphic novel, though I suppose it is.). Volume 5, in case you cared.

I have my cousin (Yes, you, Alexis, my love!) to thank for introducing me to the wonderful thing that is Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

I saw the trailer when it first came out, of course, so I knew that it existed, but since I've basically hated every Michael Cera movie I'd ever seen (with the exception of Juno. I just hated Michael Cera for that movie.), I immediately decided it wasn't worth seeing. So I wrote it off. But then last  Christmas (or perhaps the one before. I have a feeling we watched it the same year that we made the snow man massacre in the front yard, which was 2010 according to my bucket list.), my aunt, uncle, and Lexi all convinced us to watch it, and I loved it.

I got to do a presentation on it for my final project in my Mass Media class last semester.

For those of you who don't know, Ramona is the super awesome, unattainable chick that Scott gets totally obsessed with. In order to date her, he has to defeat her seven Evil Exes

But within about five minutes of her being on screen, I had decided that I want to be her when I grow up. This is why:

Yes. She's fabulous.

I miss having pretty hair. My burgundy's all faded to this boring reddish color...

Anyways. Now that I just took way longer than necessary to say half as much as I intended to, I'm going to shut up and go away.

But first, surprise! Some phone pictures of brutally murdered snowmen! Compliments of myself, Alexis, Tim, and Becca.

Uncle Ralph, good soul that he is (Jesus, according to Grandmum, and since she's dead, you can't argue that without feeling like a horrible person. So there!), brought us a spray bottle full of red liquid to complete the tableau.

 The first victim. He never had a chance.

The second casualty tried desperately to get away. No such luck. 
We were having too much fun. 

 The perpetrator of the atrocity

The lone survivor fleeing in terror.

Like they say: the family that slays together stays together <3

And thank you, Raven, because I know I stole that from you, but I can't remember when you actually said it.
