Christmas vs. Wizard

I told you I had two more layouts to make. Well here they are. One is from my trip to Dusseldorf, Germany. There was a Christmas market. I don't really like this layout very much. I can;t tell you why, but I'm just not completely satisfied with it.

This one I do like. IT'S A WIZARD!!! A living statue, that we saw in Dusseldorf. The font, that I used to make the title, is "Parry Hotter" (No, I didn't spel it wrong, it really is Parry Hotter).

Musical vs. Autumn

I made two new layouts for my scrapbook. The first is "Love Me Tender", when I went to see the musical.

The second layout is "Harvest Delight". I posted a story on my blog, with that name. So I decides to give my layout the same title, it sounded nice. So here it is:

I have two more layouts to make, so soon I will post them on my blog. So for now..... feel inspired!

Best Movies of '00's

There is this website, totalfilm.com, that has features on films. A lot of list and you know how I love lists!!! They made a list with 00's best films, according to the audience (they could vote). Here's the list, and my opinion on it.

30. Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl: I think it's still the best movie in the trilogy.
29. Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers : I'm not a fan of this trilogy, but it deserves a place in this top 30.
28. Up: Didn't see it yet. I should...
27. Let the Right One In: Didn't see it either.
26. Anchorman: Definitely one of the funniest movies of this decade
25. Finding Nemo: Yep, love it!!
24. Lost in Translation: It's in my top 10 of all time favorite movies.
23. Children of Men: It's a good film, but my expectations were bigger.
22. District 9: Didn't see it and don't want to see it.
21. Dead Man’s Shoe: Don't even know it, is that weird, should I be ashamed?
20. Inglorious Basterds: Oh yeah! Loved it. Especially the guy who played Hans Landa.
19. Amelie: Thumbs up!
18. Kill Bill 1 & 2: I think the second one was better than the first, but they both deserve to be on this list. Volume two is also in my personal top 10.
17. Sin City: Yes!!!! Great film.
16. Shaun of the Dead: It's hilarious and it should be a little higher on the list.
15. City of God: It would probably not be on my list, but it's a very good movie.
14. Oldboy:???
13. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring: Like I said before, not a fan, but they deserve to be on it.
12. Donnie Darko: Genious movie!!!
11. The Departed: Brilliant!!! Great film.
10. Memento: Definitely one of the most original films ever made. A story told backwards and it doesn't even confuse you.
9. Pan’s Labyrinth: Didn't see it....shame on me.
8. Wall E: Cute, but "Finding Nemo" is better.
7. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: It's ok, that's all I'm gonna say.
6. No Country for Old Men: Oh yes! This film brought us one of the creepiest bad guys ever.
5. Gladiator: Overrated. I liked Russell Crowe better in "A Beautiful Mind". I still don't understand why he didn't win an oscar for that and he did for "Gladiator".
4. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King: It is the best in the trilogy, but an oscar is a little bit too much.
3. There Will Be Blood: Great! The DVD was a birthday gift and I definitely like it.
2. Lord of the Rings Trilogy: That's just stupid. First they put the movies in this list seperatly, and then the total trilogy. It doesn't really make sense...
1. The Dark Knight: DO NOT AGREE. Don't misunderstand me, I like it, but it's not the best movie of the decade!

I miss a couple of movies: "Pride & Prejudice", "Little Miss Sunshine", "Hot Fuzz", "21 Grams", "The Motorcycle Diaries", "Into the Wild", "Mystic River", "Mulholland Drive", "King Kong", "Hotel Rwanda" and "V For Vendetta"

Christmas in Düsseldorf

I love Christmas. Even the weeks before Christmas. Yesterday me and my mom went to a Christmas market in Düsseldorf, Germany. The whole city was in the spirit of Christmas. There were a lot of stands where they sold Christmas decorations and stands with food and drinks (also Christmassy, is that even a word?). It was very cold and our feet were very tired at the end, but it was so much fun. Here are some pictures:

Düsseldorf welcoming us in German:

A giant Christmas tree. Isn't it wonderfull?

A shop window decorated for Christmas. The animals actually moved:

A living statue. He looked so real. When you put a coin in his jar, he moved:

2010 movie to look forward too

The year 2010 comes near and it promisses us to be a good movie year. Here are a few films I'm looking forward too.
[Paul] A comedy with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Can it go wrong? I mean, "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" both were a great succes. Oh yeah, this one also has Seth Rogen in it.
[The Book of Eli] Did Denzel Washington ever make a really bad movie. Not that I can remember, so I'm really looking forward to this one.
[Alice in Wonderland] Tim Burton is well known for his creation of a beautiful fantasy world (look at "Big Fish" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"). And again working with Johnny Depp. The trailer alone was fantastic, so that promisses a lot for the movie.
[Robin Hood] How many times did directors remake this? I stopped counting but still I'm really excited about it. Russell Crowe as Robin and Cate Blanchett as Lady Marian. Sounds great.
[Toy Story 3] I loved the first two movies. The characters of these films are so cute. Off course Woody and Buzz take the lead, but Rex, Hamm, Slinky, Mr. Potato Head, do I need to say more. Plenty of reasons to go see it.
[Shutter Island] The trailer made me excited for the movie. And as we now Leo Dicaprio and Martin Scorsese are a great duo, so...
[Wolfman] Just like with "Shutter Island" I wanted to see this film after seeing its trailer. It looks dark, grimmy and really scary.

20 Funniest movies

I like to laugh and I like movies. So I was thinking: what are my favorite comedies? I made a list of 20 movies, the funniest of all time (in my opinion). They're in random order.

- Beverly Hills Cop (complete series): The police stories of Axel Foley are anything but dull. This agent is always up for some good action.
- Wedding Crashers: The two friends end up in very bizarre situations.
- Shaun of the Dead: Zombie movies aren't funny most of the time, but this one is hilarious. Ed and Shaun are a great duo.
- The Burbs: Definitely the funniest Tom Hanks film ever made. No matter how many time I watch it, it's still funny.
- Old School: Grown men start their own college fraternity. Especially Will Ferrell's character Frank is memorable (remember "Dust in the Wind" and the gymnastics?)
- Hot Fuzz: Again this duo makes it happen. One of the best movies of the decade. British humour, funny character, the perfect comedy.
- Ace Ventura: Carrey's role is great and that's exactly what makes this film so great.
- There's Something About Mary: It sounds like a standard romantic comedy, but that's not true. It's anything but standard. Mary with the gel, the zipper accident, the fishinghook and Puffy the dog. All so worthed!
- Monty Python and the holy Grail: King Arthur and his quest for the holy grail, but then the Monty Python way. The knights who say Ni, the black knight and the cursing Frenchman, unforgetable.
- The Wedding Singer: Again a comedy that I can watch over and over again. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are a match made in heaven.
- The 40 Year Old Virgin: It's not a hilarious comedy, but it's just really, really funny. Andy is the main reason for those laughs.
- Monty Python's Life of Brian: Very intelligent comedy. My favorite part is when the people hanging on a cross sing "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life".
- Anchorman: Will Ferrell make me laugh every single time. I just have to look at him. Very funny characters in this film, extremely funny movie.
- Groundhog Day: He relives his day time after time after time, but it's soooo funny. And Bill Murray is an unique actor.
- Monsters Inc.: The characters sre original and they will definitely make you laugh. Especially Mike makes you role on the ground (really!!).
- Uncle Buck: Not a very big movie, but it makes you laugh. Uncle Buck us a pretty strange uncle, with his almost exploding car en his even weirder rules. You're gonna love this guy anyway.
- History of the World Part 1: Who says history class is boring??? The Spanish inquisition is the highlight of this film.
- Monty Python and the Meaning of Life: Monty Python's view on life is everything but ordinary.
- Orange County: A simple plot, extreme characters and extremely funny. Lazy Lance, the drunk mom, the frustrated father and the dumb surferfriends. You have to see it to understand why it's so funny.
- Trains, Planes and Automobiles: John Candy and Steve Martin are an amazing duo. They created an unforgetable comedy. Especially the scene where they are in the car and driving in the wrong direction. Classic!

Harvest Delight

Of all the seasons I have one personal favorite. It might sound funny or even weird, but the fall has always been my favorite season. People only think of it as rainy and windy. It is, but the fall is so much more than that. Here are the reasons why fall is special to me:
- On rainy days you have time to read a good book, play boardgames with friends or family and watch a movie you've been willing to see for a while;
- It's cosy inside the house;
- Halloween;
- Toadstools in your yard;
- The leafs on the trees get beautiful colors;
- You'll see squirrels, hedgehogs, frogs and robins

Plenty of good reasons to love autumn!!!!

Bruce Springsteen - Working on a Dream
Lifehouse - Halfway Gone
Foo Fighters - Wheels
Greenday - 21st Century Breakdown

All Shook Up - Love Me Tender

Yesterday I had a great evening. My mom and I went to see the musical "All Shook Up - Love Me Tender". It's a story about falling in love and it has 25 hits of Elvis in it. The songs were in Dutch off course, but that didn't bother me at all. Rene van Kooten was the leading man. He's my favorite musical actor. I've also seen him in "Beauty and the Beast" and "Les Miserables". For that last one he won a very important musical award. He's a great singer and actor. The leading lady was Brigitte Heitzer. She once attented a talent show, where she won the role of Evita. I never saw Brigitte in a musical, but I liked her performances I saw on T.V. I voted for her when she was in the race of becoming Evita. After last night, I'm even a bigger fan. She gave me goosebumps (that's a good thing)! She stole the show with her humor, spontaneity and her incredible voice.
My favorite song of Elvis always was "Falling in Love". It was also the toppoint in this musical, before the break. It gave me chills over my whole body! It was a wonderfull, funny, swinging and happy musical. I want to see it again!!!!

Here are some photo's:

...And the other two

I told you that I still had to make two layouts for my scrapbook. So here they are. The first one is my night out with my collegues:

The second one is from Kreadoe, a arts & crafts fair I went to with my mom. I actually bought the paper, that I used for my last four scraps, at that fair.

I also made some christmas cards. Four to be exact.

So as you can see I was very creative this weekend. I hope that I gave my fellow scrappers some inspiration!

The other one includes my Halloween pumpkin (Jack). I found the perfect paper for this layout, paper with pumpkins!!!! Here it is:

I have two more layouts to make. So.... Coming soon.

Ladies Night

Last friday me and some collegues from work went out for a nice evening. Only Jacqueline, the one that arranged everything, got sick and couldn't come (sadly enough). We went to a theater-diner in Breda (The Netherlands) and we had a hotel for the night. The show itself wasn't that great, because we had sucky seats and it wasn't as spectacular as we expected. But we had such a great time. We laughed so hard and we got to know each other better (sometimes a little bit too much). We even played truth or dare (we are in the ages 24 to 33...). After the show, we went to a bar, with a live band. Around two we went back to the hotel, where we talked for a while. We went to sleep around 4 o'clock. It was a great day. Here are some pictures:

Me, Anouk and Cindy:

Oscar Update

My little rabbit Oscar isn't that little anymore. He's still super cute, but he has grown. And he's not black, he's dark grey! Look at some pictures:

He's a very distinctive rabbit. He's curious, eats A LOT, not scared at all and his toilet he uses as his bed. At night he's most active, because he's starts running around in his cage. Oscar is super cool!!!

Winchester Wallpaper

I made a new wallpaper. I had the John Krasinski wallie up for a very long time (since september), so I was ready for something new. It's Winchester time again, Sam and Dean time!
Here it is:

You like it? Feel free to use it on your own computer!

CSI's best, per season

I once posted my favourite CSI episodes (long time ago). Now I'm going to do it again, but I can only pick one (maybe two) episodes each season. Here I go:

Season 1 - Boom
The episode where Nick has a one-night-stand and the girl gets killed. Catherine has to prove Nick's innocence. First Nick centric episode and a great one. The other storyline in this episode is the one with the explosion in the office building.

Season 2 - Stalker
Again this episode is centered around Nick. The team finds out that someone is stalking him. Especially the scene where the stalker is holding Nick at gunpoint is very strong.

Season 3 - The Accused is Entitled
My overall favourite. Chad Michael Murray guest stars as an actor held for a double murder. Big shot lawyers are trying to convince the team that he's not guilty and they are throwing with dirt. They bring up personal stuff to break the team down and make sure their client goes out free. Wonderfull episode.

Season 4 - Suckers
That episode where Warrick and Catherine have to mingle in the world of vampires. Creepy and disturbing in one way, but it's a very exciting storyline. The other case is with the Samurai sword that goes missing.

Season 5 - Grave Danger + 4 X 4
I had to choose two. Grave Danger is the obvious choice. I think it's the most popular episode for CSI fans. And it is a great epi. The team works together in a race against time to find Nick. And Quentin Tarentino directed it, which made it even better. The other episode really stood out that season. Four different cases and each story took place at the same time. So they literaly had two rewind the episode sometimes. Great way to film an episode.

Season 6 - Gum Drops
Nick has to lead a case where a family is killed. They just have to find the young girl Cassie. I like Nick as a leader and the end scene is very memorable.

Season 7 - Toe Tags
Four different cases and the episode is seen from the victims point of view. Which is a whole new twist. I especially liked the storyline with the war veteran.

Season 8 - Lying Down with Dogs
One of the most horrifying cases. Not the woman getting killed, but what that woman did. She 'created' fightdogs. That's awfull. The first time that I could actually understand the murderer and why he killed. And also the first time that I didn't feel sorry for the victim.

Season 9 - Turn, Turn, Turn
Wonderfull episode, with Nick as a leading character. We see three different cases in a motel, that happened all in one year. Haley (guest star Taylor Swift) is the constant factor in all stories. She even ends up dead herself. It's a sad story, but a very strong one. Wonderfull epi.

For season 10... we'll have to wait a little.

Scarriest movies

Since it was Halloween last saturday I decided to make a list of movies that scare me, over and over again. I made a short list, because there are a lot of movies that have scary parts. But the once I'm going to show you are overall scary. Here they are:
- The Shining - Stephen King knows how to wright an exciting story. And Stanley Kubrick knows how to turn it in to an even scarrier film. The hotel is creepy, with the haunting and stuff. It drives Jack mad and from that moment things are getting more scary.
- The Exorcist - The scarriest movie I've ever seen. Especially the scene where Reagan comes down the stairs backwards, on her hands and feet. I had a lot of sleepless nights because of this film.
- Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The movie doesn't really scare me, but it's horrifying and sickening what happens here. Only a sick, twisted mind is capable of doing something like this.
- The Descent - Going into a cave is scary enough for me, especially when one of the girls get stuck in it. The fact that there are flesh eating creatures of the night in that cave makes it even worse. One of the best new horror movies.
- Jaws - You only see the shark after 45 minutes, but the movie is extremly scary. Even after watching it 10 times the same things scare me. So that means it's a good movie.
- The Ring - The dark tone of the film makes it exciting. That video is very scary and the girl is even scarrier.
- Halloween - John Carpenter builds up the tension, which is this movies biggest strength. Michael Myers is one of the coldest killers ever. No emotions, extremely calm and he has no mercy. Just pure evil.
- Alien - De scarriest Sci-Fi movie. Especially the scene with the man, who's stomache explodes because he was impregnated with an alien. Disgusting, but a good way to get nightmares.
- The Grudge - Just like "The Ring" it's the dark tone that makes this movie scary. The film know how to scare people and the sounds are terrifying. They will haunt you days after you watched the movie.

Book Fair

I went to a book fair with my mother the other day. A school library wanted to raise money for a school in Indonesia, so they sold their books. And it where a lot of books. I didn't know where to start. So I found myself four wonderfull books:
- Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie;
- Gorilla's in the Mist by Dian Fossey;
- Sherlock Holmes: the Ultimate Collection by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle;
- The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie
I only had to pay 3 euros! That's practically nothing! I gave 5, because it is for a good cause!
I'm a big fan of detective books. They're thrilling, exciting and mysterious! I was so glad that I found "Murder on the Orient Express". That's my favourite Christie story. So I will make it trough winter with those novels, haha!

vrijdag 30 oktober 2009


Yesterday I was very creative. I carved my first pumpkin. I never did it before, so it was an experiment. My mom works at a greenshop, so she brought me the biggest pumpkin in the shop. I checked the internet for tips and tricks and for some ideas. I thought I could make a Jack pumpkin, from "A Nightmare Before Christmas". I turns out, pumpkin carving isn't that difficult. Here's the result:

The pumpkin lit by day:

The pumpkin lit by night:

Not bad for my first pumpkin huh? Well, let Halloween begin. Actually, here in The Netherlands we don't celebrate Halloween like the Americans do. But we like it to. And I got some movie tips for you. Movies perfect for a Halloween night:
- "The Excorsist" - Still the scarriest movie I've ever seen.
- "Friday the 13th" - Jason is very scary
- "The Shining" - Jack Nicholson is avery scary psycopath
- "Halloween" - of course, THE movie for this holiday!

7 Reasons why you should watch "Supernatural"

1. The storylines The writers do a great job at writing new and surprising storylines every single episode. It keeps this show fresh and interesting.
2. The 1967 Chevy Impala Without a doubt the coolest car I've ever seen. Dean can pick me up every time in that ride!
3. The laughs Allthough it's a supernatural scary show, it brings us a lot of laughs. The two brothers make funny jokes about each other or the case that their are working on. Who doesn't like a guy with a good sense of humour?
4. Myths, legends and folklores I always loved stories like this. Stories that can't possibly be true, but still nobody proved if it's true or fiction.
5. The monsters Some monsters are even scarrier then the next. Not just how they look, but their attitude can be very spooky too. I like it that sometimes one of the monsters returns in another episode.
6. The supporting cast It's all about Dean and Sam, but they get a lot of help. Like dad John, Bobbi, Jo, Ellen, Castiel, Ruby and Gordon.
7. Sam and Dean They are, I think, the main reason why most people (read:women) watch "Supernatural. Sam is a very smart, sweet and responsible guy. you can always rely on him. Dean is funny, tough and charming. He has a big mouth and a big heart. That's the perfect combo for a kick-ass duo and a great TV-show, that you really need to watch!

Movie Heroes

If I was a famous actress, and I would play a mistress in distress, who would I want to save me? Well, kind of a tough question. I couldn't think of just one hero, so here's my list of movie heroes:

- Indiana Jones (Harisson Ford in "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark"): He's my all time favourite movie character, so I really would like to be saved by him. Who would thought history would be so cool?!

- James Bond (Daniel Craig in "Casino Royal"): I normally don't like ladykillers, but Mr. Bond is an exception. He's so charming and extremely handsome.

- Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver in "Alien"): Who told you women can't be heroes. She's the coolest female hero ever! She can kick ass and not just alien-ass.

- Han Solo (Harisson Ford in "Star Wars"): Skywalker is not the only hero in the "Star Wars"- saga.

- John McClane (Bruce Willis in "Die Hard): He curses, smokes, drinks. You just gotta love McClane.

- Bruce Wayne/ Batman (Christian Bale in "Batman Begins"): He's a slick and rich guy by day and a hero fighting crime by night. Great combo!

- Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves in "Speed"): I actually fell in love with Keanu when I saw "Speed" for the first time. When you're on a bombed bus with Jack Traven, things look a little bit more pleasant.

- Logan/ Wolverine (Hugh Jackman in "X-Men"): I think he's my favourite superhero. Oh god, guys with beards and sideburns!

There are other heroes, like people who I just admire because of their achievements. Like Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone in "Rocky), Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver in "Gorilla's in the Mist") and Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks in "Forrest Gump").

Meet Oscar

I told you recently that my friends Evelien and Irene got me a rabbit for my birthday. I had to wait a while, because he wasn't six weeks old yet. Yesterday I could finally pick him up. His name is Oscar and this is him:

When we picked him up, I put him in a box. When I wanted to get out of the car I handed over the box, with Oscar in it, to Evelien. Then he jumped out, in a bush!!!!!! I could grab him just in time. Panic!!!! Who tought a six week old rabbit could jump that high??? But he is the sweetest rabbit. And Irene and Evelien gave me the best birthday present ever! Thanks girls!

Four new layouts

Hey everybody. I haven't updated in a while, because I was just very busy. But I did have time to do some of my scrapbooking. I made four new layouts. Here they are:

Evelien, Irene and I at a barbecue:

A bird show:

My dog Tyson watching TV (smackdown):

And finally "Walking with Dinosaurs":

I'm sorry, but the pictures are a bit blurry when you enlarge them. But I was to lazy to make new ones, hahaha! I hope I gave you some inspiration for your own scrapbook.

Walking with Dinosaurs

Yesterday my brother and I visited a very cool show. "Walking with Dinosaurs: the arena Spectacular". A couple of years ago the BBC aired a documentary with the same title, but this time we could see it in real life. There was one storyteller, a paleantologist, was sort of the voice over and he took is million years back in time. There was a Stegosaurs, Utaraptors, Brachiosaurs and of course Tyrannosaurs Rex. It was amazing how they made them look so real. A great show. Here are some photo's (it was really hard to make pictures, because you couldn't use a flash. That wasn't aloud)You can click on them to enlarge:

Best Movies Ever... according to Joyce

I've never showed you my top ten movies. Here it is:

# 10 Little Miss Sunshine
I love the characters in this film. Their very quirky, but you love every single one of them. The loving mother, the father who hates losers, the son that doesn't talk because of Nietzsche, the daughter who wants to be a beautyqueen, the suicidal gay brother and the cocaine sniffing and porn loving grandpa.

# 9 Pride & Prejudice (2006)
I'm a big fan of Jane Austens work, but this is without a doubt my favourite. Elizabeth Bennett is a great character and I like her position in life. She has her own will and opinion and she doesn't care what others think.

# 8 Kill Bill Vol. 2
Better then the first. This one is more about the characters and it shows us a more emotional side of The Bride.

# 7 Stand By Me
Great story about four friends who don't fit in anywhere and they are a weird bunch together. True friendship is hard to find, but the kids from this film are true friends.

# 6 Lost in Translation
The simplest stories sometimes make the best movies. "Lost in Translation" proves that. It's a wonderfull film about two real people and a developing friendship. Alltough they are in one of the biggest cities in the world, they are very lonely. But together they finally live up.

# 5 A Beautiful Mind
A story about a brilliant man. But his genius mind made him go mad. Perfect acting work and a touching story.

# 4 There's Something About Mary
The funniest movie ever. Hilarious scenes, funny dialogues and quirky characters.

# 3 High Fidelity
I like music and I like talking about it, but Rob Gordon does it in his own special way. And the top fives he makes for everything is just great.

# 2 Forrest Gump
Hanks' best role and a wonderfull story. A man, who seems dumb and useless, achieves more than the average man. And he has one true love and love conquers everything!

# 1 The Shawshank Redemption
The best movie ever made! Beautiful story, perfect acting, brilliant acting and vivid music. I know "Forrest Gump" won the oscar for best picture once, but "The Shawshank Redemption" should have won it that year! Seven nominees and no wins, UNBELIEVABLE!

Krasinski Wallie

Last time I showed you my Supernatural wallpaper. I made a new one. This time it's Krasinski time. John Krasinski off course. He's is soooo funny in "The Office" and he's also very cute! Here it is:

I hope you like it. You can use it for your own desktop if you want.

Will Ferrell vs. Mother Nature

Yesterday I saw a cool programm on Discovery Channel. Man vs. Wild (a.k.a. Ultimate Survuval), presented by Bear Grylls. He takes us on ultimate survival trips and had very handy tips for the audience, but this one was special. He had all over funny guy Will Ferrell with him. They were dropped somewhere in Sweden. They had to get out of the chopper, but it couldn't land. So they had to get out by hanging on a rope. Ferrell called out for his mommie! Hilarious. Later they had to make their own snowshoes, eat a deers eye, make fire and sleep in the cold snow. The funniest part was when the two guys had to climb back in the chopper, with a ladder. Ferrell couldn't do it, so he fell. He was hanging upside down from the ladder. That was very funny. Great episode....

Cast away?

My brother recently asked me this question: If you where stranded on a deserted island, which five celebrities would you want to have there with you? It sounds like an easy question, but it's not. I really had to think about this one. I choose five totally different people. So, here's my choice:

- Jensen Ackles: just because he's Jensen Ackles, I really like him and off course he's handsome. And maybe he can be the hero in this adventure.
- John Krasinksi: funny and sweet guy. I think he makes life on a deserted island bearable, he seems like a very optimistic person.
- Naomi Watts: she's very interesting, beautiful, kind and she's my favourite actress. And I really don't want to be the only woman on the island. So for the girltalk it'll really help.
- Jeff Corwin: it'll come in handy if he could tell me about the flora and fauna on the island. And he probably knows about survival.
- Jason Wade (singer of Lifehouse): only if his guitar stranded with him. So he can sing us songs by the campfire. I just love the sound of his voice (and Lifehouse is my favourite band).

These where the people that almost made it to my deserted island: Katherine Heigl, George Clooney, Owen Wilson, Adam Sandler, Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks and Jack Johnson. See how hard it is. Try it and see for yourself.

Jim's best pranks

Do you know Jim Halpert? He's the character John Krasinski playes on "The Office". He's well known for his sweet and kind personality, but most of all his pranks!. Most of the time Dwight is his victem. Here are some of the best Jim Halpert pranks, in non specific order:

Wrapping Dwight's desk: For christmas Jim decides to give Dwight the best gift ever. He wraps up Dwight's own desk and basically everything on it.

Jello: Jim puts Dwight's office supplies in jello.

Secret alliance: There are rumors that Dunder Mufflin is downsizing. Dwight sets up a secret alliance with his arch enemy Jim. He ends up spying on co-workers while hiding in a cartbord box and having peroxide bleached blonde hair.

Health Care plan: Michael made Dwight look for a better health care plan for the company. He let's all the employees fill in a form with their deceases and allergies. Jim decides to make some of them up like Count Choculitis, Government- created nano- robot infection and Hydroplosion.

Vending machine: Jim puts all of Dwight's office suplies in the vending machine. Pam will buy his pencil cup and Jim will hand him over a bag of change so he can buy his stuff back, one nickle at a time.

Thursday or Friday: Dwight thinks it's friday, when it is actually thursday, and Jim decides to play along. With a little help from Pam they make Dwight still believe it's friday. Dwight, who never missed a day at work and was never late, shows up the next day.... late!

Where's my desk: Jim hides Dwight's desk in the men's bathroom. Funny: Jim trying to help him find it by asking: Where did you last see it?

The Vampire: Jim makes Dwight believe he's turning into a vampire

Fax from the Future: Jim sends Dwight faxes from "Future Dwight". Funny: Dwight batting a cup of coffee out of Stanley's hands, because it's "Poisened liquid".

Don't you just love a guy with a good sense of humour?
