I freaking love this. Never before has Lent looked so BADASS. She looks determined make it to Easter without her cigs.

You know, most religious characters, especially women, are portrayed as soft and sweet. Not this one. There's a lot of strength here. I like that. :D

I gave up sex, but since my Girl's in America for another year, I dont supposed that meant much.

This is amazing. It has a real quiet weight to it. I love the way the Rosary encircles her hand and wrist. You are too cool.

I was in Stockholm today, to go to the U.S. Embassy to fix my dual citizenship. Afterwards we (me, my sis & dad) went to the Modern Museum, there I got this great book about space age. In it was they showed a cigarette brand that got started to honor Laika, you know the Russian space dog. So if I'd ever start smoking I'd smoke those! Good enough for my health I don't think the brand exists.

I don't remember much from studying history, but for some weird reason I remembered that space dog and that it's name was Laika.
Smoking is bad. I don't know why I always have to draw cigs in people's mouths. Past life as a smoker?

I sometimes think that the rosary is perfect for obsessive compulsive personalities.

she doesn't look too happy about it! but i hope she sticks to it. i don't think i'd like lulu with yellow teeth.. there has to be some part of her that's clean and white, after all ;)

Wow....

She looks so...not into it! Like she's been forced to submit to her religions rules.... like, "FINE....I'll not smoke for 40 FRIKKEN DAYS....are you HAPPY???"

...She's wearing black to mourn the death of her addiction... at least for 40 days.

And oh yes, kick ass as per usual Carry on!

You just know people would have to use coasters. That's a table that deserves a better life.

No! All tables should be treated the same! Table equality NOW!
