Monkey Business... and Alpacas

Ok. This post is going to be absolutely beyond ridiculous, but you must know something about me. My favorite animal is the monkey. Have you ever really thought about how many different kinds of monkeys there are!? A TON! Okay, so the inspiration for this post actually came about a week ago. On my search for an internship, I was filling out an application and one of the questions asked "if you were an animal what would you be and why?" I thought this was kind of odd, seeing as the rest of the questions asked things like "what are your strengths and weaknesses", "tell me about your best quality", "why would you be good for this internship", etc. And then you ask me what kind of animal I want to be?? Anyway, sitting at Aspen Coffee with Amanda, I couldn't help but take a small break and google "types of monkeys". If I was going to answer this woman accurately on what type of animal I want to be, I'm going to do my research and give her a proper, detailed answer. Needless to say, Amanda and I spent the next 15 minutes dying laughing at these photographs of monkeys. The people of Aspen stared, but it was just too good of a moment to pass up. So please, enjoy these monkeys in their natural habitats...
This little guy is called a Squirrel Monkey.
Bahaha. Sir, White-faced Saki Monkey.
If only everyone had a mustache like the Emperor Tamarin.
This one will sing me deep melodies...Introducing the Howler Monkey.
Check out the lips on these almost blue looking Golden Snub-Nosed Monkeys.
I have no shame in imitating this monkey in the middle of Aspen. Amanda agreed I got the face down perfectly. The Patas Monkey. 
Hahaha. DeBrazzas Monkey.
So contemplative. Douc Langur Monkey.
Amanda asked if this monkey was painted. I told her that yes, the monkey gets up and paints his face for battle every morning. The Mandrill.
Don't ask me why, but I feel like he resembles Spock from Star Trek...Roloway Monkey.
This reminds me of those stuffed monkeys you could buy at the zoo and velcro around your neck. Gibbon.
My hair looks like this every morning... but I wasn't about to tell the lady reading my interview questions that. :) Baby Orangutan.
I chose to tell her I wanted to be a Chimpanzee. They are just so playful and seemingly intelligent, or at least they act that way when I spend time watching them at the zoo. 

On another random note... (don't ask where this silliness came from...I just love to laugh sometimes).
My mom and I were in Barnes and Noble while in Springfield and we walked past the magazine section and my mom noticed this magazine all about Alpacas. Needless to say, I was in for another laugh. I think another reason I enjoyed this so was because I like to name every inanimate object that I own, and the magazine named a few of these alpacas. 
Just please imagine how hilarious this magazine was to me as I am not an alpaca farmer... 
I don't know why they're in the clouds...
Best for last. I love Harry Potter and the fact that this alpaca is named Sirius Black is so funny to me, which is why this is now the background on my iPhone. It makes me laugh every time I look at my phone. Well, that's all for now. You all probably think I'm super weird now, but I could not resist sharing my laughter with you all. I'm thinking of posting some music and spring inspired things soon. :)

  1. You should have told her you wanted to be an Emperor Tamarin! She might have questioned your personal hygiene haha! And the alpaca thing cannot be real... that is just too weird!!
