Of Ladies and Sun Puddles

A couple of days ago, my mother woke me up really early. She was all, "Jessica, Jessica, look out the window!"





I took these pictures and then went back to sleep. Such is my life.
Later, when I woke up at a proper time, I decided I was going to make a Lady comic. In case I don't love you enough for you to be aware, Lady has a facebook. And often, on this facebook, she posts these little silly comics that I make for her.





So after realizing another comic was probably overdue and wondering why I couldn't hear her fans clamoring for more, I sat down to make one based on a little joke my brothers and I had come up with the day before.




I was sitting there on my bed sketching away, and all of the sudden, Lady came into my room. I should let you know that Lady never comes into my room. I think it has something to do with the fact that I don't give her food every minute of the day, unlike other people (Mum, I'm looking at you). But this time, she did. And I was wondering what she was up to until she randomly plopped down on the floor in front of me. Only it wasn't random at all.



This photo, though overexposed, explains perfectly why Lady had chosen to 1) enter my room when she never does, 2) stay, and 3) lie down on that particular spot. Sadly, she only loved me for my sun puddle. Seriously, though, it's getting to the point where I'll pet her during the day and her pretty little ears are so cold that it makes me cry. Almost.



She stayed with me for a few more minutes and then left because someone made noise in the kitchen. By the time she was done investigating, she'd forgotten about me and my warm sun puddle. Fickle Lady dawg.
Also, I made this for my bookshelf.




AND LOOK AT THE SHADOWS




There's a party on my wall every day.
Oh, oh, also, I should note, not only does Lady have a facebook, she also has a blog. You should check it out.

Parque Warner, Part II

Okay, remember I said you can go to Parque Warner twice in a row for the price of one day? Even if a park is as small as this one is, you don't question or reject a deal like that. You just don't.



Our faces after riding Batman: La Fuga. Look at my face. I look ridiculous. And I have no idea that my little stunt with the roller coaster will cost me a headache. No. idea.

I could feel it coming on, though, so I decided to take it easy for the rest of the day. We rode the hanging chairs (swinging chairs? I have no idea what this thing is called).





LOOK AT DAVID BEING ADORABLE. LOOK AT HIM. NOW LOVE HIM.

My dad juggled stuff.



We saw a stunt show.



And took a Tweety bird ride.




And I basically hung around with my brother and his friends while they got on stuff and I waited because my cursed headache was like, "Aha! You think you're going to have fun and get on roller coasters?! Think again!" And that was that.



Why is this so precious? I don't get it.

It wasn't even evening by the time we left because, as I said, the park just isn't big enough to keep you around for that long. Another thing is, it doesn't get that full, so whereas I'm used to having to wait upwards of an hour to get on a roller coaster or a popular ride, here you mostly just walk through the line and have your pick of seats. So much so that half the restaurants in the park are closed. Some didn't even open at all. Bizarre.

This park is gorgeous, and I did like the atmosphere a lot, I just think that probably the best part is what I can't get on - thrill rides. (Just to clarify, I can't get on them because I will most certainly and almost immediately get a headache) I mean, most of the roller coasters hold (or held at some point) some type of world/European record for height or speed or whathaveyou. But, I liked the bumper cars. And the Scooby Doo ride. Yes, I'm a child, so what?








And, because my mother asked me to add more pictures of the park at night...
