Lieke van der Vost

So I stumbled upon this website (for those who don’t speak Dutch, like myself, you have to translate the webpage) and found this amazing artist from the Netherlands. Her name is Lieke van der Vost, and her bear illustrations are just magnificent! Look at these guys, its like I’m looking at my bear family. I am a bear, for those who may have forgotten. You should visit her site, like…right now.

Le Bus Bear, or is it an RV? Regardless, I love it.

She’s got a great style of drawing, and she has a shop section! So those who want one of her adorable cards, prints, stickers or bags – I implore you to indulge yourself. I personally have my eye on this:

MUST. HAVE. TOTE BAG. OMG.

Van der Vost also made this cute little boar that you can print, cut out and display wherever you wish! It was to celebrate her 1,000th facebook “like”! I plan on doing so myself.  I can’t get over how wonderful her art is!

This bore is wearing a sweater, I’m not sure many things in this world can be better than this.

One Lovely Blog Award!

So, I can’t even believe I’m saying this…but…I was nominated for an award.

I’m not making this shit up. Blame Michael Chaney. He did it.

So those of you who don’t know Michael, he’s got seven facts of his own over at his blog. He’s pretty cool too, he writes things that you should read. Thought provoking things. Next level shit. So, I would re-nominate him, but I don’t think that’s how this thing works.

Oh, but it gets better, there are some pass along rules associated with this pink, glorious jpeg!

The One Lovely Blog Award requires that I give seven facts about myself and nominate another five recipients.”

So, here’s seven things about Super Saiyan M…

1. Guild Wars. I played it the most consistently and vigorously than any other game in my life. It’s also the first MMORPG I was introduced to.  I’ve actually made several friends through the game, I’ve met two of them in person.

2. I lived overseas for 11 years. I have been to 27 countries, but only 3 states. I wish to continue to travel; I have more places in mind! My dream is to end up in a cool big city for a while, with like coffee shops everywhere (not Starbucks, I’m talking hipster shit).

3. My biggest pet peeve is people being on their smart phones. I’d be more specific but really I think you know what I mean… When the person you are having a conversation with hasn’t looked up from their phone screen. The guy who bumps into you because he was on his phone. The person who interrupts you mid-sentence to show you a vine video…or a facebook status…or a tweet. Come on people, why do you do that??? Seriously.

4. The most liberating thing I have ever experienced, was losing my phone. I was no longer in charge of anything, I had an excuse for everything. And everyone  had zero expectations for me showing up or responding to anything. It was glorious. However, after this happened a second, third and fourth time, I have to say this feeling was quickly replaced with more darker emotions.

5. I have been reading comic books since I was a wee child (any Psylocke fans?), I collected trading cards, and I watched anything with superheros on television. I’ve been pretty obsessed with super hero and comic culture for the majority of my life.

6. Scent is like my favorite sense. I get it, hearing is cool and seeing is like super important. But smelling is where its at. The smell of food gets me every time. I have purchased more perfumes than I’d like to admit. Every gift I give to one of my girl friends is usually scented. I can identify every bath gel, shampoo or conditioner that I own by its scent. Since being in nursing school I’ve spent a shit ton of money on scented antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers. I crave certain smells, which is why I have a lot of candles as well. I also am keen on what my friends smell like. This may sound creepy, but its how I operate.  Equally strange, I suppose, is that I can block or minimize other scents. It’s a weird super power to have. The worst is when I have allergies (which happens far too often) and I can’t smell anything at all.

7.  I’m a bear. Evidence:

Ferocious clawing action going on! Hide yer kids, hide yer food!

Now, the nominations, cause I got to select la crème de la crème of wordpress writers…that I am subscribed to.

1. Miami Transit Rider: If you know Miami, then you know bad driving. If you know Miami driving , then you know frustration. But, if you take the public transportation in Miami, then you are Daniela. And I suggest reading along for a ride that you will surely be able to relate to. Her rants are awesome.

2. The Global Citizens Blog: I’m not sure if this kind of blog counts, but I’mma nominate it anyway. It’s a really interesting blog to follow, each post is by a different student who is partaking in the Victoria Overseas Exchange (Vic OE) exchange student program. I love reading about what each person is doing, their new experiences and what they’re learning along the way.

3. Keep Culture Weird; I like Dave’s posts. I’d say more, but really you should read it, cause its hard to sum up all of them. Several, several guest posts made on the blog are by his students, all good fun reading.

4. zi0otography: I’m obsessed with the photography that’s posted on this blog. It’s beautifully captured and captivating. :D Also there are pictures of the Netherlands right now, because I guess the photographer is passing through.

5. Museums Reviewed: This is the shit. It’s literally posts about museums – which are basically my favorite thing. A Polish guy in the Netherlands guides you through the good ones, the bad ones, all of them really. It’s the fucking best. I’m not sure why you’re still reading this…you should have clicked the link and investigated by now.

6. SaSa Stories: Sarah is studying marine biology in Groningen, cause she’s a bad ass. I love reading about her adventures, she is so adorable it hurts. Her blog still seems relatively new. But I’m not judging…I’ve only had this blog for a month lol.

7. Blogging Robin I have to support my fellow nursing students! Cassandra is a Canadian nursing student who I can closely relate to. She also feels that shopping is a disease… Once again, this is more of a new comer to the wordpress world.

My work here is done.

OH SHIT! NETFLIX IS IN THE NETHERLANDS NOW!

THAT’S RIGHT, YOU READ THE TITLE CORRECTLY!

NETFLIX HAS FINALLY ARRIVED IN THE NETHERLANDS, or should i say Neetflix (its a joke, because the Dutch love double vowels).

This may be insignificant to anyone who is not in the Netherlands, or who already had it. But, this is exciting for me because that means my pen pal and I can actually watch the same things and talk about them! OH LAWD, ITS A MIRACLE!

I’d like to introduce to the blog, my Dutch pen pal, Svemmy. Svemmy is not his real name, but I don’t know if he wants me to disclose it or not. So now when I talk about Arrested Development, Svemmy can watch it and actually know wtf I’m talking about when I hint ever so slightly that there is always money in the banana stand.  Svemmy can go balls deep into Sons of Anarchy. Even Dexter!

Apparently though there are a lot of shows that are still not available for him, such as Portlandia and The League. But its cool. It takes time to watch all the stuff that is currently available anyway. And I can attest that time really escapes you when you decide to indulge in Netflix. Oh the hours of life…

This is a picture of Svemmy being choked by Darth Vadar. Perhaps the last picture we will ever see of him.  Death by Sith Lord; shit happens.
