According to some people, Godzilla was real…

I don’t know what to think. Am I losing hope in humanity? I just watched a “funny” segment video from Jimmy Kimmel, where they interview bystanders about Godzilla. They ask them if they feel the directors were being insensitive to the fact Godzilla was a real lizard that terrorized Tokyo. A lot of people probably laughed it off, but others seriously played along. They honestly thought Godzilla was a REAL EVENT…“But, maybe they thought Godzilla was the name of a natural disaster?” Yeah no, the interviewer clearly mentioned that Godzilla was a lizard…

I do feel bad for these people. We all have our clumsy moments, but this is seriously taking it to another level. A giant lizard (not a dinosaur) taking over a city, does that make sense at all? Although, if that were to happen, I wouldn’t hear the end of it, because my nickname used to be Lizard (and did I mention I like some Japanese foods?). If Godzilla were real, I’d be in trouble.

I give these people credit for using their imagination, but we gotta ask ourselves why this is happening. I’m speechless.  Yes I laughed, but I also felt sad for them and others out there who think this way. I don’t want to post the video, because it’s discouraging. What can we do to change this? Is it really that hard to learn Godzilla is not real?

But for now, I’m going back to Rivendell to grab the elves’ Chupacabra mascot that’s ready to fight aliens,  the ones who with the help of Stormtroopers destroyed our zombies, in order to obtain a drop of water from the fountain of youth, by using their magic wands, flying carpet, and Wolverine.

I have witnessed the funniest moments

When I was little I’d stay at my cousin’s house for part of the summer. Most of my cousins were older than me, so there were things I wasn’t allowed to do (for example, I had an earlier curfew), but that didn’t stop them from asking for my help when they needed it —I never said no, even though they used to steal my candy.

It was a sunny day and I had finished getting ready to go out with my cousin. She stepped in the shower and while I waited, I watched TV. I didn’t hear any commotion, but all of a sudden I heard a voice calling me. It was a low voice, so at first I thought I was just crazy or it was the show I was watching, but it wasn’t until I answer to said voice that I realized it was my cousin calling from the bathroom. She wasn’t calling for help, per se, but she sounded like she had done something she shouldn’t have done. As soon as I opened the door, I saw it, the shower curtain rod had fallen after my cousin grabbed the towel that was hanging from it. I wish I could show what her face looked like. She shook her head sideways while she tried to say ‘oops.’  It was kind of like this, except with a more guilty look:

After laughing hysterically for a minute (or so), I helped her, but we noticed the whole rod had broken, so we did have to tell our aunt. They didn’t get mad, and they laughed, as well. Phew!

Will the weather just stop PMS’ng? Thank you.

Please, don’t get me wrong, the weather has definitely improved here in Ontario, but it’s still not quite where it needs to be. Last time I checked, this is Spring, not the Fall. The rain hasn’t been too bad, but the winds, oh my! I appreciate it when it’s warm and windy, because my face doesn’t turn into an icicle, but I want the high speed winds to stop just for a few days.

My life doesn’t revolve complaining about the weather, but I just want well-behaved weather, is that too much to ask for? Well, apparently it is in this Province :p. It’s funny how when I lived in Vancouver, I had my rants over the rain, but now it’s all about the wind. Ah well, it keeps life interesting I suppose. As I mentioned before, I don’t mind when it’s windy BUT warm; however, it does cause some confusion when I’m hermit-ing in my room. The reason? When it’s windy and cloudy, the clouds will cover the sun every minute or so, and this my friends is when I don’t know whether to turn my lights on or not. If the clouds cover the sun, then it gets dark in my room, but when I’m about to switch on the lights, the clouds pass and reveal the sun again, and it feels like it’s noon when it’s only 4 pm. It becomes annoying, because it feels like someone is flickering the sunlight on and off. If this is how Mother Nature behaves when on PMS, I don’t want to know when she enters menopause…

What has Mother Nature done to you?

Have you ever sent texts to the wrong person?

Sending text messages by error are totally hilarious to the person who receives them, but they can be nerve-wrecking to the sender. I have done it many times, and still to this day I have to double check who I send my messages to:

Me: Can you believe what he did???

=friend doesn’t respond for a while=

I’m thinking: Wait, did I send it to him by mistake??!!!

Friend responds: No! It was awful

=sigh of relief=

Most of the time, my texts are inside jokes, but I still would not want certain people to read them, just in case they misunderstand them. When you read a text, you read it with your own voice and perceive it differently from the original sender’s intent. This can cause the receiver to feel her friend is mad at her, when in fact she was just venting. But, moving on, I received this hilarious text from someone, and it was not meant for me :p:

“she farted so intense that she peed herself a lil”

What the heck, right? I couldn’t stop laughing. I didn’t ask her about it, but all I said was, “er..I think you sent this to the wrong person,” and she laughed.

Has this ever happened to you?

7 things kids have said to me

It is true that kids say the darnedest things! But thanks to them I still want to have kids. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking forward to the poop-throwing and tantrums, but I am looking forward to the funny and special moments. That is if it’s my destiny to have kids! I’m a former babysitter and here are some things my adorable kids have said to me:

1) Kid #1 (ready to go to sleep): I’m hungry.

Me: But, you’ve had a hot dog, cereal, carrots, and rice!

Kid #1: hmm…I’m thirsty.

Me: But, you’ve had milk

Kid#1: I need to go pee


2) I’m exiting the kid’s room and the kid says: “You’re beautiful!” <<<< year’s worth of high self-esteem right there!


3) Kid#2 pointing at random guy: Is he your BF?????????

Me: Nope

Kid#2 pointing at male cashier: is HE your BF??????????

Me: Aww why?

Kid#4: You gave it to me


6) I see the kid going to the bathroom with a smirk on his face

Through the eyes of my childhood: Chapter Three – Prankster

This is Chapter 3 of a series I started a while back, where I tell a story from my childhood and find similarities to who I am today.


You know by now that I used to…fine, I still am, but not as much…be a hyper girl. I kept myself busy, recited poetry in front of relatives, teased my sister, and of course played pranks on others. I wasn’t a mean prankster or anything, I meant no harm, I just wanted to tease.

I did the prank calls, scared my friends, the coin on the ground prank, etc. One that  I will never forget is the gum prank I played on my older cousin. I filled gum with non-toxic (because that somehow makes it less evil) ink and brought it with me to his house. He was my target, because he used to tease me, and I wanted him to get a taste of his own medicine (remember, I was young). I offered him gum, but I told him not to swallow the juice — see? I wasn’t that bad — and he took the gum.

Soon after his sister and I started laughing, his mouth was covered in blue ink. He knew something wasn’t right, so he ran to the nearest mirror. He screamed and yelled for my uncle to come.  I knew I was going to get in trouble. My uncle tried not to laugh when he saw him, and you won’t believe what he said, “Suck it up! It’s just a prank.” I was speechless, he was okay with it? Well, not entirely, he did told me not to do it again, but he heard of the prank and knew it wasn’t dangerous. I was content that my prank actually worked, and my cousin didn’t forgive me for a while, but we moved on.

Today, I still play pranks, but they’re pretty harmless. I like to prank my best friend into thinking her phone network is messed up, by sending her the same text message 20 times in a row. Sometimes, I even play pranks without even noticing. She loves monkeys like I love penguins (probably why we get along so well), and she has one on her room ceiling, just hanging around (I did not notice for a long time). One day we were on her computer and while I was waiting for her to finish, I looked up and saw the monkey, I literally screamed so loud that my friend thought I was dying. No joke. I laughed so hard after. It’s like I play pranks without even trying :p

And this is me throwing a performance :p

Greased Pasta?

Happy Sunday! I hope it was a wonderful day! Today’s post is short, but I must share what I dreamed about today. Have you ever had one of those hilarious dreams where you are part of a musical?

I took a nap today (it’s becoming a Sunday ritual) and for some reason I dreamed I was making fresh pasta with friends, while dancing to ‘Greased Lightning” (Grease the musical/film in case you didn’t know). We’re talking major plot evolution throughout the dream. I was in the kitchen with friends preparing spaghetti from scratch…and let’s pause right there. I present to you Insanity Alert Numéro Un (practising my French): My friends and I preparing a meal from scratch would be an extremely rare occurrence in the life of Ellie, because our schedules rarely coincide. So, let’s move on.

I decided to turn on the music and for reasons I don’t want to know, I played the song ‘Greased Lightning.’ It just spun out of control from there; the pots flew, my friends and I jumped and danced on tables, and I sprinkled flour on a spinning wheel– do not ask me how we brought a spinning wheel in the kitchen, Sleeping Beauty syndrome? I mean, okay, I confess. I would do this in real life (except for the spinning wheel).

At that point, I was laughing in my sleep. I honestly realized I was dreaming and almost woke up, but I went right back to sleep. As soon as I did, I dreamed of my friend rolling out the freshly-made pasta, and my, oh my! The abundance of pasta was so incredible that I picked up strings of pasta, and dragged them on the flour-covered spinning wheel. What…the…HECK? Then, I woke up –because dreams love cliffhangers.

The most hilarious and bizarre dream I’ve had in a while –and that’s coming from me. I don’t know why the song played in my dreams; I haven’t seen the movie in a long time nor was I thinking of it at all. My brain has a twisted sense of humour, eh? Have YOU ever had these dreams?

Have an awesome week everyone! Remember, if you survive Monday, you can survive anything! And after Monday, only 4 days until the next weekend!
