1-25-10
Things that have happened today:

  • The ceiling is dripping water. Actually, there’s TWO leaks. The water is yellow…
  • Ray gave me my capo, but not today. It was about a week ago, but I LOVE it!
  • About that capo: It’s old and hard to get on. The sunburst on Cali’s neck got scratched up. 😦 And I keep forgetting to take it off when i put my guitar away. Isn’t that bad? Like, tension or whatever?…
  • I was talking to my friend about blood-sucking vampires. She thought I said “butt-sucking.”
  • I got a detention for talking. Funny thing is, two other people were goading me. THAT, and we weren’t doing anything in class, and the teacher hadn’t told us to be quiet.
  • My sister found a third leak. We’re out of basins to put underneath them…


{Mon, Jan 1124, '10}   Consider Yourself Updated

I just did something reeeeally stupid. Have fun guessing what it is!

THAT, and I wrote a new song. Whoo, four whole songs! Yeah!… No… That’s actually pretty sad, and it’s just a vocal part… I need to find more writing time… and recording time… and LIFE time…

Well, right about now, I’m working on an essay. I’ve been having a fit all over the internet, sooo…

Apparently, I did the essay wrong, so I had to redo it. I was almost done, too…

Uggggh, I’m so bored! I’ve been working on this stupid thing for HOURS! I’m ready to kill!

Aaaaaah!

And if anyone sees Ray, tell him he owes me a capo.



{Sat, Jan 905, '10}   Fireworks

I love the Earth. I love nature. I love the world. I love this planet. I love the environment.

I don’t love fireworks.

Every time I see a fireworks show, I cover my nose and mouth so I don’t inhale the smoke. I wish I could cover my eyes so I wouldn’t have to SEE it, too.

All that smoke in the air…

So, anyways…

In terms of eco-friendly, I did NOT enjoy my Disney trips.

Everywhere I went, I heard, “save the animals,” “save the air,” “save our planet,” “save the water.”

How is the air safe? Daily firework displays are not helping the air. Just ask the bits of charcoal and ash that rained down on my head. That flew into my sister’s eyes. That got black smudges on my dad’s pastel shirt.

So here I am, typing words onto the screen of the laptop on my lap. Protesting. Ranting. Expressing.



{Sat, Jan 911, '10}   Disney Vs. McDonalds

The title of this post is somewhat a parody of this post.

Forget McDonalds; Disney is making America fat!

Giant turkey legs? Ice cream cones four times the size of a regular cone? Huge slushies? Plate-sized cookies? Junk food paradise or just plain junk?

I hope I don’t get in trouble for this…

As much as I like junk food, I find the amount of it served at various Disney parks to be disgusting. Everywhere I looked, there was someone stuffing their face with cholesterol and sugar.

At this point, I’m ready to side against Supersize Me.

Pointless post, I guess, but I like my opinion to be out there, so…



{Sat, Jan 931, '10}   Vacay Tweets

Here’s a quick post:

The entire time I was on vacation, I did not have internet access, so I was unable to tweet. Unlike the rest of the world, I do not have a working cell phone or a blackberry or an iTouch or a laptop. (Well, I have a NON-working phone and a suckish laptop…) I don’t know about anyone else, but whenever I do anything, I think up tweets… which doesn’t help unless I have internet access…

So, anyways, here are some thing I might have tweeted if I had the chance:

  • A little boy farted on me and a little girl wiped her hands on me. Fun fun.
  • The fireworks are so close… there’s ash raining down on my head…
  • Just recorded an entire parade. My arm hurts… 😦
  • Ewww, the water tastes like dentists’ water+lime+sulfur…
  • Uggh, I never thought I’d say this, but I’m sick of sweets…
  • I hate motels…
  • I went on a safari. Right as it started, my camera died. Nice…
  • Pirate mime!
  • I got a new shark-tooth necklace and a guitar tee! Whoo!
  • Soaking wet! OMG!

And, like, a HECK of a lot of others.

By the way, I’m a little ticked off because I lost quite a few followers during that two weeks, but I guess that’s to be expected.



{Thu, Jan 757, '10}   Davedays’s New Fan!

So while at Florida, I visited a friend. She’s in college and was home for winter vacation.

So she, my sister, and I started sharing funny youtube videos, and I showed her to Davedays.

Make note of this, Dave!

Her first reaction: “Heeey, he’s cute!”

Me: “Back off! He’s mine!”

Her: “Awww, how old is he?”

Me: “Like… 17-ish…”

Her: “Awww, he’s so young…”

Actually, this isn’t an exciting post, but Dave, you have a new fan(atic) thanks to me, soo…

CYA!



The title of this post is a reference to this post.

As you should know, it is now the year 2010, which brings the end to 2009. Funny. In my first draft, I wrote “not the year 2009” instead of “now.” At least I’m proofreading…

I spent a lovely winter vacation down in Florida. The only problem was that it was cold. At least, I though it was until I came back up north to the not-so-tropical weather. While there, I’ve been on quite a few “adventures.” I’d post about them here, but then I figure this post would be long and boring. Whenever I get free time to, I’ll add new posts about my trip to MTKR (MercyTheKitty Rants) about my trip and link them to this post:

{Mon, Jan 435, '10}   Mercy Is A Beast?

In reply to Mercy Is Cool?

The day before winter break at school, the teachers took their own breaks from teaching and gave us fun assignments. In math class, we made origami boxes.

If you didn’t know, I am a MASTER at origami (to an extent). I love it, and have loved it since I was little.

Anyways, the box involved ripping paper into squares. Ray couldn’t figure it out, and was impressed by my skills, so he asked me to do it for him. When I handed back his squared of paper (ripped in a shorter amount of time than it took for him to complete one), he said, “Wow. You are a BEAST at art.” Apparently, I am cool for knowing Skillet and a beast for ripping paper.

I’m keeping track for possible blackmail in the future.

That same day, I had art class, where I was shading black-and-white pictures. One of my friends sitting at my table also called me a beast upon seeing my work in progress. Weird…

Well, I hate popular stuff, and the word “beast” is popular. I’m not too thrilled about being called that, but it’s the thought that counts, right?

Did I mention Ray participated in St. Baldricks last year? Random fact I thought I might throw in.

And that day, my math teacher yelled at me for calling a classmate a jerk for bullying me. Right… so the bullies and the gum-chewers and the profanity-using kids and the vandils don’t get in trouble, but i do for standing up for myself?

First post of 2010, whooo!
