Pictures Galore! Holly The Strange

Once again… I SUCK!!!! You see her saying 550th comment? I am now at 800! So you know how much I suck….

Hey guys and girliez! Holly [The Strange] here, Marliz3e invited me to do a guest post to celebrate her 550th comment (which was mine!)

So what I’ve done here is Ten Things That Make Me Happy. Some are going to be incredibly obvious, but I’m just that type of person. To make this a bit different I’m including photographs to illustrate this list. Enjoy!

First one (and only one that’s in order) is *My Chemical Romance* (I said I’m obvious!) They have been my favorite band for what is coming up to 3 years now (at time of posting.) In those few years they went from being a band that make music that I love, to something that I now almost worship… the “almost” part might be officially omitted at some point.


Next up is *Books/Reading.* This has always been one of my favorite hobbies since I was really young. What really got me started was when my Dad read me the Harry Potter series, then I wanted to read it for myself.



Something that has always made me happy is *dogs!* I don’t have my own, but when I’m older I intend to get two. Instead of finding a real dog to photograph I’ve decided to take a photo of a few of my stuffed toy dogs. The Chihuahua at the back I call “Mega-Death,” because if I had a real one that’s what I’d call it.


Another thing that makes me happy is how I dress. You can probably blame my favorite band for turning me to the “dark-side” but after discovering alternative music I developed a love of *alternative clothing* to go with it. The brand “Emily the Strange” is where I took my blog name from.


Another fairly obvious one is *The Sims.* I’ve been playing ever since I was seven when I played Sims 1 at an old friends house. It is how I first bonded with my best friend and I plan to get a Sims tattoo when I’m older. What’s not to love about making then controlling the lives of virtual people? Especially when you know that there’s a whole community of other people who share your love and are just as willing to show it!


This next one I share with my Dad, one thing we can both agree on is that *New York* is the best city we’ve been to! He’s been a lot more times than me, but from what I’ve seen I’m pretty convinced. It really is as good as it’s made out to be.


You might think I’m a bit of girly girl when I say that I love jewelry, however my favorite kind is *jewelry that looks like weapons.* Creepy I know, but I’m such a sucker for razor blade earrings!


One that’s displayed here and on my blog is *photography.* I really enjoy taking photos, it’s like capturing created art. My photos are displayed on both of my blogs.


Another one that’s displayed on my blog is *drawing.* I’m no good, but I love that feeling of being inspired and creating the amazing idea that I’ve come up with. My collection is displayed on my main blog, (HollyTheStrange.)


This last one is the only time I’m proud of myself, I’m not the best writer in the world, but I’m probably the second worst. I love *knowing that I write better than Stephenie Meyer!* That woman can’t write. For anyone wondering how the photo is linked to this, it’s the front cover of the book I’m currently writing.

So that’s it for now guys! It’s been fun making this guest post and I hope you all like reading it.

Thank you Holly!! I truly am sorry to only get it up now!!! If I own any one a response to anything, please let me know, cause I forget so easily!!!


Discovering me # 7 and a little jail time…

Morning you all!!

I am excited for this day… For some reason! I feel good about today!

Journal Prompt #7

If you were stuck on a deserted island, what THREE things would you want with you… Once again this is a FUN prompt, so water and food is not allowed!

I really like this page of me… But the lighting is BAD!! My three things is Music, books and puck from Glee! =]

Now I have a Top Ten for you all…

TOp ten things I will probably end up in jail for…

  1. Stealing a road sign
  2. Road rage
  3. assaulting someone who is abusing woman and children
  4. Skinny-dipping on a public beach at night
  5. Being TOOOOOOO loud
  6. Jay-walking =]
  7. Randomly kissing someone just because he is sexy…
  8. Public disturbance
  9. Illegal street party
  10. assaulting of animal-abusers

Wondering how I came up with this list…. Well, after I put a very sweet and loving message to my sister as my status on Facebook, my sister and The Idiot, demolishes my sweet message by talking about how she had to bail me out of jail AGAIN, and that’s why I love her!

My response… Me? Jail?? NEVER!!! =]

Have a lovely day!!

I hate when people…

Today is the first Top ten Tuesday!! I am excited to get this new regiment started on my blog! But firstly I have to introduce another change to schedule… Mondays will be just Mondays, blogging about whatever I want. But Fridays will become Fiction Fridays!! That will include anything to do with my fiction… Flash fiction, short stories, anything! Even if no one reads it… I feel I have to have a goal towards which to write!!

So here comes today’s top ten Pet Peeves [things that makes my blood boil!]]

This top ten suggestion comes from Nathan! Please go check out his blog Cogito Ergo Blog if you haven’t already! =]

  1. False accusations
  2. Bad manners
  3. Bad coffee
  4. Ignoring me
  5. Being fake [if you can act, do it. But if you can’t just be yourself!]
  6. “Bieber-fever” [He’s in SA, you know?]
  7. Misplacing my phone, or anything else
  8. Books being manhandled
  9. Animals being manhandled
  10. Bad driving!

I know this isn’t really pet peeves, but I just woke up and my head is still cotton! Enjoy it either way!!

I decided to start a little Afrikaans Class on my blog. Everyday I will teach you a word! We start today with a simple GOOD MORNING

Goeie môre. [I dunno know to type pronunciation, or add a sound clip. So if any one does, give me a little lesson and you will get sound clips with each word]

Good day!!! =]

Lesson in Awesomeness

Hi Marlize’s Blog Followers! My name is Thoughts Appear, and I’ve hijacked Every Girls’ Corner.

::evil witch cackling::

Ok, not really. Marlize invited me to be a guest blogger. Because she’s super nice.

Marlize has a nice list theme going, so I’m going to use that as my inspiration. Every once in awhile, I write a Lesson in Awesomeness blog post. So far I’ve blogged about Things That Bounce and How to Not Ruin a Baseball Game (and my funnel cake).

My guest post will be another Lesson in Awesomeness, but first I bet you’re wondering about my credentials. Why am I qualified to teach and judge awesomeness? I’ll set aside my humble nature for just a few moments.

  • I bake margarita cupcakes.
  • I challenged Chuck Norris to an ice cream eating contest…and I won.
  • My boyfriend is Kiefer Sutherland.
  • Barney Stinson and I are like this. (I know you can’t see, but my fingers are crossed.)

The Top 10 Reasons Marlize is Awesome

  1. Marlize thinks I’m funny.
  2. Marlize likes other awesome things like trampolines.
  3. Johnny Depp is on her Top 10 Actor List.
  4. Butterflies are on her Top 10 Animal List.
  5. She cuddled with a baby lion. She’s just like me! Look, I have a baby panther.
  6. She likes Taylor Lautner. And she actually stands a chance with him, unlike myself who is 10 years older than him.
  7. Marlize doesn’t like ducks.
  8. She completed the Journal Challenge. I haven’t written in my journal in months.
  9. She loves Halloween so much that she wants her future child born on Halloween. That’s Halloween devotion.
  10. She’s a resident of Nutville with me and the Idiot Speaketh.

Now can someone send Marlize some funnel cake and a trampoline? Then the awesomeness would come full circle.
