What’s your favorite kind of cheese, photos

Yes!  After I wrote yesterday’s post I went on a hunt for the book.  And found it!  Score 1 for my mom for saving all my school things.  ❤

Wtf is Taco Pocket?
Ok let’s go on.
Love the teacher’s note at the bottom: “Sorry – Alison was out of the room!”
Most kids also drew pictures on the backs of the letters. (Note: as the label says, this is clearly a picture of pizza.)
Picture of me being awesome.
Hopefully not a picture of me being awesome.
Me killing it on the monkey bars.

Some classic lines:

  • “I’m almost 9 but you’re 8.”
  • “I like turquoise and blue.  You just like blue.”
  • “I don’t like pizza.  It makes me have a stomach ache and I throw up.”
  • “What is your favorite money?  5, 10, 15, 20, who cares?  My favorite money is 20 dollars.”



LOL, blast from the past (videos)

Something reminded me of these videos my classmates and I made a few years back, so I looked them up on YouTube, and just had to share them.

These were made during one of our Creative Film Making classes in college.  The assignment was to film a “happening” – which from what I remember, is basically like a weird public performance thing that fools people (well we chose to have ours fool people).  We did a hypnosis, and a celebrity sighting.

So I think it was 11 of us, who piled into cars one Saturday and drove an hour north to Iowa City (our town is smaller and full of weird people already, not to mention people who would recognize us), so we figured the nearby college town would be the perfect setting.

We got to use the fancy camera equipment from our school’s Media department, had a few days to plan out the project, and edited it in the lab using Final Cut Pro.  Here it is, for your viewing pleasure.  (Note: I have a small role in this as “Gregory”‘s fiancee.)

We got the idea for this project from this video.  And like in that video, our pair who was made to fall in love and kiss was actually a real couple (whereas “Gregory” and I were just classmates :))


For the second happening, one Lady Gaga-obsessed classmate became Lady Susu, the latest pop sensation from France.  (I absolutely love Jared as her “euro-looking” entourage.)  I played the role of obsessed fan #2.  (Lawl.)

I hope you enjoyed these!  Its crazy to think this was two years ago!!  But it was so much fun scheming something crazy and then following it to fruition with a group of friends.  I would definitely recommend it!

Have you ever done anything like this?
