I Stole an Alpaca: Mutterings, Musings, and Suchlike #15


Hey, young bloods!

For those of you who may have not seen these posts before, Mutterings, Musings, and Suchlike is a segment on here where I mash together all the stuff that won't fit in anywhere else. :) So, without further ado, let's begin!




We don't talk about these videos enough.


Right so.

If you only ever watch one video I post on here, watch the one above.

Because I don't think this video gets the buzz it deserves. Her voice is absolutely stunning, and I genuinely start crying about halfway through because of how damn beautifully she sings this.




SPARKLERS.


This cat represents me emotionally.


I don't watch Dr. Who, but this gif was too cool not to feature.


This is definitive proof that Kirstie does not get enough appreciation. And Avi was perfect as the lion oh my god.

Also, who else would have paid to see Mitch as the Wicked Witch?

(AND WHEN KIRSTIE AND SCOTT WERE HELPING MITCH START TO MOVE I NEARLY HAD PALPITATIONS BECAUSE THE TRIO.)

Alsooooo, I have some exciting news!

I had my regional Academic Decathlon competition a few weeks ago, and I got the best score anyone from my school has ever gotten! (Which is especially big considering I'm a Freshman.) And at state, I scored first in speech! (Out of the entire honors competition.)

LOOK AT THOSE STUBBY LITTLE LEGS.


Meet Winston McPickles III.

He is the alpaca that was our AcaDec team mascot, and while at state I just sort of adopted him (oops) and took him home afterwards.

I mean, it's not like anyone told me not to.

So now Winston's a member of my stuffed animal family.

Also - an important notice: I'll be gone from Tuesday, March 15th to Sunday, March 20th on vacation. I'm going on a road trip to New Orleans (ASDFGJKL EXCITE. A lot of The Vampire Chronicles (one of my favorite book series) takes place there. I MUST SEE ALL THE PLACES MENTIONED IN THE BOOKS). I probably won't be around the blogosphere that much - although I might be reading blogs and moderating comments, there won't be any new posts either here or on my doll blog (oops shameless self-promo) during that time. :)

Well, that's all for today! Have a lovely day, and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles :)

Namarië,
Ellie

  1. Oh my god I saw the lonely with Sabrina Carpenter as the thumbnail and audibly gasped, then stopped breathing for a few seconds. It is like one of my favorite songs combined with another of my favorite artists.
    p.s.-You have great taste in literally everything.

  5. Wow, congratulations on the decathalon, and the speech competition too! That's so amazing. Also, that Dr Who gif makes my little Whovian heart happy. That brightened my morning considerably. Ooh, I haven't heard 'Lonely' before, but Iwill definitely have to listen to it as soon a possible. It sounds pretty special.

  6. Hello, Winston. *tries to shake his hand without carrying him up entirely*

    Eeep! Congrats on the competition-- especially in speech! It's the hardest thing ever. Oooh, Sabrina Carpenter! Sometimes I listen to her stuff (but mainly, I just hear her go "HA-HURRRRRR" on Girl Meets World because the kids I babysit really love the show. Oh, and sing the Ranger Rick song). XD

    xoxo Morning

  9. Love all the videos, that girl sings like a angel! That's awesome that you got the highest score. You should watch Doctor Who it's great.

  10. DAN AND PHIL. Also, I LOVE Christina Perri, so I naturally listened to Sabrina's version. I don't thin people give her much credit because she is on a Disney show, which I have definitely been guilty of. ALSO BEST SCORE? Have some virtual cookies.
