Whole Lotta Nothing

Like the title says, I don't really have anything to say today. I'm leaving for Indiana tomorrow (where have the weeks gone??), and I'm supposed to be packing right now. Instead I am just going to blog about random thoughts and listen to Disney music.

All I've managed to do so far is go through a box of pictures. I now realize that I have taken many, many, many useless and pointless pictures over the years. I wish I could throw them away without feeling wasteful. I have decided today that that is one of the best things ever about digital cameras--if you take a bad picture or later, realize a picture was stupid, you can just delete it. No fuss, no muss. No clogging up landfills with ugly pictures.

Speaking of pictures, I was at the outlet mall yesterday when my sister and I stumbled across this.

We couldn't stop laughing and took several pictures with "Nessie." The funnyness of this may not be obvious to all of you, but for you lucky souls who get it...isn't it awesome?! I feel validated.


  1. OMG... Nessie... I wish I wish I wish that didn't have a certain connection for me, but alas, it does. But I agree about digital pictures. They are 1,342X more convenient than film cameras, if only for the storage/display differences.

  2. Hahaha, Nessie.... is that a joke at Stephenie Meyer's expense? I really hope it is.

    Speaking of which, isn't B- really a high grade for a book that you "really kind of hated"?

    Also, it's okay to throw out old film pictures, because for one thing you still have the negatives if you change your mind, and for another they won't clog landfills because they're quite biodegradable. Also, we're not running out of landfill space like they say (and if we do.... there's always franceland.... hehe). Besides, you can burn them if you're worried about landfill space, because the whole ozone hole thing was a hoax, just like global warming.

  3. Nessie! Although I'm only halfway through Breaking Dawn, I'm pretty sure I've found my absolute favorite line in the book already: "You nicknamed my baby after the Loch Ness Monster?!" But seriously, why don't people think things through when they name their children? Renesmee? Come on. I can't decide if I should give Stephenie Meyer kudos for addressing this issue, or if I should just hate the book even more because not only did she give Bella mutant spawn, but she also gave it a horrible name. This picture is cute, though.

  4. She actually addresses the monster issue in the book? Even worse! She knew what was wrong with the name and used it anyway.

    It's hardly the worst Mormon name ever:

    (Read "The Cream of the Crop" for a good laugh)

  5. I finished thinking it through. Nessie is a horrible nickname for a baby, even if it's used as a weird joke in a book. Don't do it, folks!
