dear viewers and hopefully future viewers, I AM SORRY

Look, I know I started this blog with like, the intention of posting on it, but I underestimated how busy I am! I know that sounds so cliche/wimpy/unbelievable coming from a high school sophomore, but I am stressed to the wazoo! To Kalamazoo! To the Bronx Zoo! I have so many projects/tests/quizzes/episodes of the West Wing to watch that blogging and expressing my feelings thus releasing myself of inner anxieties is toooo much for moi to handle right now. But! Alas! Therefore! (I couldn't decide what word to use so I used them all.) I SHALL RETURN TO CONQUER YOU, BLOG! In a couple of weeks I will start posting again and fulfill the blogging destiny I envision for myself. So don't worry yet, my future blogging empire! I will return!

In the meantime, here's some presidential monster zombies!
from here.

So I'll see you soon!

Dear California, Meet Dunkin' Donuts

The big news here is that Dunkin' Donuts, the church of Connecticut, has decided to expand into Southern California. This day will live in infamy. But good infamy. Famy. Okay I just butchered that word.
This is the very first Dunkin' Donuts ever, in Quincy, Massachusetts. It was founded by Bill Rosenberg in 1950, five years before Ray Kroc founded the McDonald's Corporation and began to slowly but steadily take over the world.

Connecticut wouldn't be Connecticut without D&D. Here in the Insurance State, there's at least 3 D&Ds in any town. It's heaven. What's not to love about
and this
and my personal favorite, this.

I hope Californians love Dunkin' Donuts as much as I do, and don't reject it like they did in 2002 in Sacramento! Come on Cali, I thought you were the cool state!

To return back to my Purple Pants signature of ending a post with questions, here are some for discussion:
What do you think about the coffee culture of America vs. that of other countries? Do you want D&D to expand to California? Do you like D&D? Starbucks vs. Dunkin? What do you think about the prevalence of fast food franchises, good or bad?

Hello Again, World!

Hey Internet community, I'm back! It's Jenna, from "The Girl in the Purple Pants," remember that blog? No? Because it was never interesting in the first place? Oh, well, either way here is my new blog, The Girl in the Plaid Skirt! Notice that lil changing of the title to reference the minute changes in my life?

I wanted to start blogging again because ever since my departure from the blogging world eightish months ago, my writing skills have gone down the drain. While writing for a blog never improved my academic writing (or anything really useful in high school), the few times I would write for myself the words wouldn't flow like a cool clear spring brook like I was used to. Instead, it would be like trying to get the ketchup out of those glass bottles at diners: impossible. So that's why I'm back on the Internet, trying to reclaim some of the skills I lost.

Also, I had a lot of fun blogging. Blogging made me realize how fun my life was, and it added that much need pazazz! I want that pazazz back! Sparkly sparkles!!
I know people on tumblr are always like, artist credit and stuff, so I found this gif here.

I want my life to be like this hamburger!! That's why I'm blogging again!!

So hopefully I keep up with this blog like I did with my old one. I'll try and make it really interesting I promise!! Have faith in me!!
