Paul Zerdin - The Human Dummy

Found this video which is hilarious! This guy who had to be the human dummy was a real sport and played along very well!

Oh, and apparently he uses the same dialogue, but this human dummy he got was cool enough to dance ;)

YA Books of 2010 That I Need to Read

I haven't been a good reader this year and I've missed out on a lot of books. However, since book bloggers are posting up their favorite reads of the year, I guess I can just pick and choose the best from their lists :)

Bloggers Heart Books has a great list of their Top 24 Favorite Books of 2010.
And from there, I guess I've compiled my books wish list :)
Here's what I would love to read, (sort of in order):

Hex Hall by Lady/Rachel Hawkins
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

Twists and Braids

The normal French Braid is nice but quite boring when that is all you know. A girl must always update her braiding skills and I found these new looks which I would love to try -
Two Strand Braid
Water Fall Braid which goes into a Double Braidish Look

Petite Wear

I'm a petite girl and have to rely on good tailors to make sure my clothes fit me nicely. It's hard to find clothes off the rack that fit well. Some stores do have Junior's sizes and I will usually head there, but the main pet peeve would be if it looked too childish.

Anyway, I stumbled upon the lovely world of fashionable petite bloggers! I love that they're sharing their petite clothes and now I have some ideas on where to go to update my wardrobe :)

If you're petite and haven't read these blogs, you should:
Really Petite
Alterations Needed
Extra Petite

Have only explored these, but will find time to blog hop on these other Petite Fashion Blogs.
