I am now 70% (ish) of the way through Rayman:Raving Rabbids. We figured out that in order to play 2-player, we need 2 nunchuks, not just 2 remotes, so my dad and I will head out to Target/GameStop/whatever sometime this week, I'm guessing.

My arms are tired because of that game. :P

My best friend and her boyfriend got back together. I'm hanging out with her on Tuesday or Wednesday. Woo!

Billy Mays died. You know, OxyClean dude? Apparently his wife just rolled over in bed and noticed that he wasn't breathing. Geez, how awful has that got to be? I feel bad for her. That really sucks.

I've determined that every guy on the Playstation Network falls into one of these categories:
1) My age and stupid
2) Younger than me and stupid
3) Slightly older than me and stupid
4) Enough older than me that it would be creepy if he hit on me, but not stupid.
5) Way older than me and stupid.

So far, I have not talked to any guy there that does not fall into one of those categories. And then the girls are all:
1) Skanks
2) Immature
3) Actually dudes

So of course, I get hit on a lot because I am an actual female who is neither skanky not an immature moron. I hate getting hit on. It sucks. I need a sign over my avvy's head that just says "I'm taken and not interested in anything but gamer friends." Ugh. By the way, if you're on the Playstation Network, friend me! :D I need some less stupid friends. haha.

What else?... meh, there really is nothing else...

I have a twitter account. (Twitter.com/lepamplemousse, if you wanted to know.) The other day, I asked this: Anyone have any tips on how to encourage your boyfriend to start drawing a webcomic? We have yet to start ours, and I'm getting frustrated.

Do you see, in that twit, "@answers" anywhere at all? No? Me neither. But apparently Mahalo.com saw that and decided it was time to post my question to its own site... using some kind of bot (scraper, I guess it's called) with my twitter account name, unbeknownst to me, of course. A few days later, I was receiving mysterious tweets from some user called "Answers," all of which included about half a sentence and a link. Upon clicking the link, I discovered what Mahalo had done. I posted another tweet :
@answers What the heck? You took my question and posted it to Mahalo, even going so far as to use my Twitter account name?!?!

Obviously, the same scraper took the question and posted it, thinking it was legit. Some real users answered me, asking if I'd had a problem or what had happened. One even went so far as to say that I shouldn't have posed my original question to @answers if I didn't want them to respond. Apparently, they don't know how this site works.

Anyway, I posted a couple more responses, not even questions, on twitter, all directed to @answers. Moments later, I saw some more @replies. I tried to look at the links, but what do you know, "Page not found." Mahalo noticed me complaining and took MY words off of THEIR site.

I know it seems like a silly thing to get worked up about, but what if it hadn't been just a little tweet? What if it had been this blog entry? Or an essay posted to Turnitin.com? How far are these scraper sites willing to go?

I seriously hope that Mahalo and other sites like it either get taken off the internet or get a total rehaul so that they won't take unsuspecting people's words away from them anymore.

p.s. If you really feel like annoying someone, tweet a million things to @answers, just random stuff. Okay, so it's not very mature, and probably not a good idea, but part of me almost wants to do it anyway. (I probably won't.)

So... Farah Fawcett and Michael Jackson both died today. I'm sure you've heard. That's all I have to say about that bit of news.

Today, I finally got to go to the pool! (By "finally" I mean I haven't been to a pool in a couple YEARS.) I went with the boyfriend and three of my friends. We splashed around for a while. It was fun times. And then we went to get dinner at a pizza/pasta place by the boyfriend's house. One of the three friends left. We ate yummy food! Yay! After that, we figured out that we needed to go back to my house so that my friend could get her car so that she and her bf (my other friend) could go home. I guess he needed to be home by 9pm, which the boyfriend and I had not anticipated. The four of us piled into the boyfriend's car, headed to my house. We got there, and my two friends left. The boyfriend and I went inside.

And what did we do, you ask? Only one of the coolest things possible... WE WATCHED THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW! HUZZAH! If you haven't seen it... well, let me warn you, it's kind of (by which I mean VERY) strange. But you should see it. Your parents might not approve, depending on who you/they are... but you should still see it. It's crazy cool. Hard to believe that Dr. Frank-N-Furter, aka Tim Curry, was the same guy that played the voice of GOD in "Animated Stories from the Bible: Music Video - Volume 1." lol WUT. (AND Nigel Thornberry from The Wild Thornberries? Sheesh.)

Anywho... After watching the movie, the boyfriend had to leave. He's sleeping over at a friend's house tonight. We talked about the movie for a minute and then he drove off. I went inside, craving something sweet, so I opened my fridge and BAM! Giant hunk of watermelon. My mommy left a chunk just for me, separate from the melon mix from fathers' day, because she knows I only like watermelon and not the others. At times like this, I can see how awesome she is. So yes, basically, I ate it and it was THE BEST WATERMELON I'VE HAD IN MY LIFE, I think. Yummy yummy.

Overall, today was a successful summer day! Yay!

I am (hopefully) going swimming at the boyfriend's friend's house today! Huzzah! My house just got really hot... or maybe I am just toasty for no reason. I don't know. I think I shall go eat something, since it is now 3pm and I have not yet done so today. Hmm... oh mah gah I think I motivated the boyfriend a little more on the making our comic front! :D Yaaay. (If you didn't know this, we've been planning on starting one since like... winter... and it has yet to actually happen, although we do have characters and a general setting.)

If swimming does not happen today, then I will probably end up watching Rocky Horror (finally), so really it is a win-win situation. Yay!

Today feels like a good day. The end.

Psst, make sure you look at the links in my last entry.

I just discovered a new webcomic that I like. It's pretty new (I think there are around 50 strips so far), so I read through the whole thing in like 10-15 minutes. If you like cuteness, bears, baked beans, or adventure (or a combination of these!), you should check out The Purple Hills Afar.

I saw an ad for it on the site for Pictures For Sad Children, a webcomic that I love, and it looked adorable so I checked it out. Sure enough, cuteness abound! Yay!

/end plugs

I've really got nothing interesting to say at the moment. I slept in really late today, so I haven't done very much. Probably going to eat something or whatever. Oh hay, I'll add one more thing.

I have this one ADORABLE dress that my friend gave me. Her mom bought it at Goodwill, but it was too big on her (she's tiny), so she asked if I wanted it. It turned out that the dress was too small for me. It zips up fine until about 1 inch from the top. I've had this dress in my closet for months now, not knowing what to do with it. I really like it a lot. I've decided that I'm going to try to get my mom to help me figure out how to let it out a bit, or add something to the back so that it is wearable. I would really like to wear it to the homecoming dance at the boyfriend's school next year, assuming we go.

It looks like this:

So yeah. That's all. BYE! :D

Am I the only one who finds vintage bathing suits adorable? I'm talking about the one-piece ones that have a square top a lot of the time and you see in all those old movies. Most of what I've seen Katy Perry wear kind of resembles them.

Meh, I was just thinking about that and how much bathing suits have changed since then. I wish I could have lived back when these were still really in fashion. When I went shopping for my summer wear, I did see a few like this, however... but failed to actually purchase one. :'(

Oh well, maybe next year.

(Sorry if bathing suit entries are awkward or taboo to any of you. I just had to get that out of my system.)

Jun 23, 2009

My friend Kyle's birthday party is in about an hour and a half (hopefully, if his power doesn't go out again). Woo!

I think I shall check up on webcomics and waste a bit of time playing flash games.

The boyfriend and I finished Resident Evil 5! Yayyyy! :D It was amaaaazingly pretty, and a darn tootin' fun game, too. I highly recommend it (although I have to admit that I don't know what the gameplay is like on single player, since we played it full through on co-op).

Hopefully sometime this week, I will watch my newly bought copy of The Rocky Horror Picture Show with the boyfriend. I haven't seen it in a long time (so long that I remember absolutely NOTHING about it except that there's some singing and it's in a mansion or something along those lines). I'm pretty stoked. I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower earlier this year, and that movie was mentioned in it several times (kind of a big plot detail, but I'm not really giving anything away here by telling you that).

Speaking of Perks, HAVE YOU READ IT? I LOVED it so much! It was a really great book. I highly recommend reading it if you have not yet done so. It's fairly short (like 180 pages or something along those lines, if I remember correctly). It's from 1999, and it was set in 1991-1992, so there are a few pop culture references that may make you think back a bit, but nothing terribly hard to understand. The character supposedly writing the book, called "Charlie," made a reference to Harvey Milk at some point. I don't exactly remember why. I was reading the book right after the movie Milk came out, so I chuckled a little bit about that. So yeah, READ IT READ IT READ IT! :D

Alright, I'm done rambling. See you crazy kids later.

Jun 21, 2009

Happy Fathers' (Father's? I GUESS IT WORKS BOTH WAYS!) Day!

I'm going to a minor league baseball game (which are really the best) and then coming back home for barbecue! Yum! Nothing like bbq ribs. :D :D :D After that, we will probably play Wii or something, since most of my family likes to do that. I got my dad a Wii game for Father's Day. It's Rayman: Raving Rabbids. It's supposed to be this really weird/crazy/funny party game, so I'm hoping it'll be fun.

Not much else to say at this point. I may edit and add more later, if I feel like it.

Spend some time with your dads, grandads, friends' dads, or people who are just like dads to you! Make sure they know how much you appreciate them! Yay!

Jun 19, 2009

OK, this has been driving me nuts ALL day.

I was watching TV with my mom one time, YEARS ago, and we saw (I think) the beginning of this one movie. There was a boy walking down a street in a hoodie. It looked like it was probably really hot. He was bleeding, I think from his arm, and it was dripping on the ground. Then, some adult (I think his dad or someone else he knew) came by in a truck or a van or something. The adult was freaking out but I remember the boy not really saying anything or having a reaction to anything. He may or may not have had a skateboard with him.

And then the channel was changed, the movie never to be seen by me ever again.

For some reason, I was just thinking about that movie, and I was wondering if anyone out there on the interweb knows what I'm talking about. It's been driving me nuts. I keep filling the spot of the adult with Clint Eastwood, but I don't think he was actually in it. That's just my brain doing weird stuff.

SOMEONE FIGURE THIS OUT FOR ME PLEASE! Google is not being terribly helpful at this point in time.

EDIT: So I put this up on Yahoo Answers, and some guy replied that I had seen the beginning of Arlington Road. I checked it out, and I think he's right! Yaaaay! :D

Long story short: my family is not dependable for a lot of things, thus, after driving for two hours in the rain with the boyfriend and his father, we were unable to attain the Cubs tickets. We ate, and then went home.

Jun 17, 2009

Today was my good friend's golden birthday (woo, 17 on the 17th!). She had a party where we burned things and ate and played Rock Band. It was fun. Almost all of my friends from school were there, along with my boyfriend and a few other kids that my friend knows from outside of school. In total, there were 3 people attending that I did not know, 1 of whom my friend didn't even know. Yayyyy. :)

My sister's aunt died the other day. (All of my sisters are 1/2 sisters, if you're wondering how they have aunts who aren't related to me.) It was sad, I guess... I mean, I didn't really know her. She'd had cancer for a long time, so it wasn't really a surprise. It made me sad because my mom was about to cry when she talked about it, and my sister was sad, and I'm sure her dad was sad, since it was his sister who'd died. I wish I could hug my sister right now, though. I miss her so much...

I guess this would be a good time to introduce you to my sister.

This is an old old old picture. If my calculations are correct, this was when I was about 8, which would make her about 15. I'm guessing this was before she went to my schools Christmas Banquet.

I love old pictures like this... Also, wow, my living room used to be SO ugly. (We've since remodeled). Anyway... my sister. She's basically the most important person in my life. She's always been there for me. Even when we used to argue and get on each others' nerves, she was there when I needed her. I could always hang out in her room, and I loved watching her play video games like the Final Fantasy series. She's the reason I'm into gaming now, actually. She would randomly surprise me sometimes... like once, really early in the morning, she went to Jewel (grocery store) and bought some pastry things and some fruit and Cool Whip and we made a little breakfast before school. Another time, also really early in the morning, she bought the new DDR game and we played it before we had to leave for school. I never realized back then how cool she was.

Now, she's all grown up and in college and engaged (to a really awesome dude!) and... she's in Georgia... which is something like 14 hours away from here, I think. I would kill for a teleportation machine that could zap me right to her, whenever I wanted. I miss her so much... every time I visit her, I start to cry as soon as I'm either pulling out of the driveway or getting onto the plane... within 10 seconds of being able to see her, I just about fall apart. I hope you guys have people that you're connected to like that. No matter what happens, no matter if I do something really stupid, or if all hell breaks loose in my family, I know my sister will be there for me.

Hum... I think that's enough blogging for one day. Later, kids.

Resident Evil 5 is such a beautiful game.

The boyfriend and I are now 2/3 of the way through.

The end.

Jun 13, 2009

Since it's summer, I won't be posting as much. This is simply due to the fact that noteworthy things happen in the summer 75% less than during the school year.

I went shopping with the boyfriend yesterday. I got 4 new pairs of shorts and a swimsuit! Woo! After that, I went home and my best friend came over. We went and rented Wario Ware: Smooth Moves from the video store and played that for a while. We then watched Stand By Me (which we'd also rented), and then went to sleep. She left this morning pretty early.

Later, I got up and went to Starbucks with my mom, where I met up with the boyfriend. We'd pre-planned a snuggle day (yes, we do that), so that we could just hang around at his house and... well... snuggle. Haha. We went back to his house and watched Run Fatboy Run, which was actually really cute. I liked it a lot. His mommy went to the video store for us and picked up Resident Evil 5 for XBox 360, so we started playing that on co-op. It was pretty... the graphics were pretty, I mean. The actually game is kinda gross, haha. I'm quite partial to slicing things rather than shooting them, just so you know. Anyway, we ate dinner and then went back to gaming. After that, we snuggled up on the couch for like half an hour and then my mom came and picked me up. A lovely day overall... probably one of the best I've had in a while, actually. :D

Now, I'm sitting at home, typing in my blog. (Gee, I wonder if you already knew that...) I'm debating whether or not to play some Sims 3 before going to bed. We shall see.

I want to hang with my friends soon. I kinda bailed on them the other day... not really, I just wasn't up for going out that particular night. But hey, we have the whole summer, so I'm not too worried about it.

Speaking of friends, one of my friends is having her golden birthday this Wednesday! Pretty exciting. :) I think I need to get her a present... hmm... Well I'll figure that out tomorrow or something. For now, I shall say good night!

Jun 11, 2009

As per Maggie's request...

Here are some funny things that my mom found. I kept these ones from going back into the box because I feel as though I can find a special place in my room for them. They just remind me of an easier, more carefree time in my life, and I think we all need those reminders sometimes.

I have no idea who this first one came from. I don't even know what grade it was from. It just makes me laugh.

A card from a friend.

Here's a close-up of the front. If you can't read it, it says "From Danny to Norah." The speech bubble says "your my friend." I was good friends with a boy named Danny in second grade. He's Maggie's little brother! Can you believe it? Friend with one sibling and then years later, friends with the other.

Here's the inside of the card. If you can't tell, it says "hey Norah I just wanted to give you this card. I have no idea why I'm giving this to you I guess because were friends." I think what makes this so funny is the message as well as the funny little grammatical errors. Second grade... what a great year.

Skip forward to fifth grade (I think?). It was my turn to be "Champion of the Week." I read through all the papers like this I received, but wanted to share this one because now I'm good friends with the girl who wrote it. Back then, we were just classmates, if I remember correctly.

If you can't read it, it says "I'm glad your in my class. You have a nice family. I like your bear. You have cool tropheys." I guess along with being "Champion of the Week," we had to do a little show-and-tell. From what all the other papers said, I assume I brought in Orson (my teddy bear), my karate trophies, and some pictures of my family. So thanks, Maggie, for the kind note! lol.

Hope you enjoyed my little blast from the past as much as I did!

I did not post yesterday! Oh my.

There is a very good reason for this, however.


You see, the boyfriend invited me to his friend's birthday party. I went. We were hanging out at his house, and then we all went outside (at this point there were like... 8 of us?)... and then someone decided it would be fun to walk down to the railroad tracks (it's just down a hill behind his house). After that, someone else decided we would walk down the railroad tracks to this one bridge. And when we'd gotten about 3/4 of the way down, a red light by the bridge went on.


Luckily, there was this weird spot where there was cement on both sides of the tracks, and on one side there was a cement slope you could go down. We all went down the slope, and I realized that the "weird spot" was actually a bridge over this little creek. We hung around, basically in the bushes, and watched the train go by. I tried to take a picture on my phone but I'd thought of it too late, so I didn't get the shot. Oh well. Instead of climbing back up the slope, someone decided to walk into the woods. We were going to go see the "killing circle." I was not pleased, but I went along with it anyway. Some of the people had on shorts/flip-flops/both, so I felt bad for them. I, unfortunately, was in my favorite jeans and my brand new maroon One-Stars. :(

We started to walk. We went through tall grass, which freaked me out because there could have been animals in it (someone saw one at some point and we found fresh deer tracks). Then, we got to a wet spot. Oh joy. My feet got kinda wet, but not too bad. We all kept walking, through the grass and bushes and trees. We went up a hill that smelled like poop (apparently there was a farm nearby) and then down the other side and through some more trees and finally made it to the "killing circle." Apparently it's called that because it's almost entirely surrounded by hill. Nothing all that interesting. Bugs starting eating us, so we decided to leave. Someone decided we would go another way.

We started to walk, and then it got wet... and wetter... and wetter. One of the guys said "I think this is the marsh... we don't want to go this way" but we walked a bit further. The leaders started laughing and we realized that we'd been pranked. They then took us back and we took a real way back to the house. I think maybe we got a little bit lost... we ended up at the creek that we had crossed earlier (somewhere past the first meadow of tall grass)... and decided the best way would be to walk through it. I took off my socks and then put my shoes back on, rolled up my jeans as best I could (although they were skinnies so it didn't work all that well), and walked across. The water went about 10 inches below my waste. :[ Someone else walked over to this close by cement thing and we realized that had we crossed there (it was about 10 feet away from where we had crossed), the water would have only gone up to mid-shin. I was pissed.

After crossing, 1/2 the boys decided they wanted to try to build a bridge next to the cement thing (which I guess was also attached to an old beaver dam). We ended up staying there for like an hour, while the one other girl with us and I slowly started to freeze our butts off. Once it was about to start getting dark, we went back... We got back to the house and I looked at the time on my phone, only to realize that we'd been out in the woods/meadows/creek/etc. for THREE HOURS.

We all went in after some people changed/hosed off... and proceeded to have a pretty good time. We ate, talked, played games, and so on.

I went home around 10:30 and looked at some more old stuff my mom found. (Maggie, there's something from you from 5th grade and another thing from Danny from 2nd grade that I want to show you!) I then went to bed.

I slept in until 1:30pm. I usually don't do that, but I guess I got exhausted after yesterday.

Today, I played Mario Paint with my SuperNes, which we just found! We have other games, but the only controller we have is the mouse, so I can only play Mario Paint for the time being. I'm looking to borrow a controller from the boyfriend.

There you have it, the last day and a half of my life.

Jun 9, 2009

I just went through a few more boxes with my mom. Today's were better than yesterday's because they were old school and art projects by my sister and me. Some of the stuff was just friggin' hilarious. Other parts were adorable. Allan will appreciate this especially: according to my mom, after looking at some of the "artwork" that I made as a child, I went through an LSD phase. I should get some of the stuff I drew/made and take pictures or scan it in. It was just so funny. We were also reassured that I was the only person in my kindergarten class who could spell... sort of... at least enough that you can decipher the words I was trying to write.

EDIT: Here is an example, for your viewing pleasure.

At some points, I laughed until I cried.

Nothing else to report for today. I think I'm just gonna chill at home tonight because I'm kinda exausted for whatever reason and I'd like a night to myself.

What else?... hmm... Well everyone I know is now done with school (or is taking a summer class so that next year will be easier), so that's awesome. I'm pretty stoked for summer now. The only thing that would make it better would be my mom getting a job so that I can have some time home alone... and I guess having a little more money would not hurt, but I'm not complaining. We're still comfortable.

I think I'm done now. Byebye!

Jun 8, 2009

Today... wow.

Mom and I went through some of the boxes in the basement. All of it was present wrapping stuff (boxes, bows, paper, etc.), so that was no fun but it didn't take long.

Dad came home and took me to my friend's house.

We spent (I think) about 3 hours trying to pick a movie to watch. We settled on Sweeny Todd, but then stopped watching that after about 5 minutes. Then, we started watching Equilibrium, and stopped after about 15 (horribly boring) minutes. After that, we picked Jesus Camp (that documentary about some kids in a charismatic church), and watched about 10 minutes of that before being creeped out enough to stop watching.

Finally, we settled on the Onion Movie (as in the Onion News), which was fun. I ended up leaving before the end, but that was fine because there wasn't much of a plotline, anyway.

The only thing that really stood out tonight was the fact that my friend's brother was actually NICE to me... He kept talking to me in little chunks, and my friend (his sister, duh), but not very much of it was us making fun of each other... we were just nice... well... nice and then later he hit on me. Here's how it went down:

Me: Am I sleeping over?
Friend: I dunno. I kind of want to sleep tonight.
Me: Like when?
Friend: Like 10... that's in an hour.
Me: I think I'll go home then, I want to stay up later.
Friend's brother: You can stay over tonight. *smile*
Me: ...
Friend: You've already dated one of my friends, you can't have another one.
Friend's brother: Well I'll only be here for three more weeks, anyway. *wink smile point*
Me: ...Ok now I am thoroughly creeped out.

So in writing it does not look as weird as it felt to me... but I dunno. It was just strange. I am probably making a mountain out of a molehill but I can't shake the feeling like maybe he was not kidding 100%. Maybe only 95% joke, 5% serious.


Jun 7, 2009

Went over to the boyfriend's yesterday. We watched Deadliest Warrior for a freakin' long time. Fun fun fun. You will also be happy to know that we ate pizza puffs! (In case you weren't already aware, I LOVE pizza puffs more than breathing... in fact, I would not mind breathing pizza puffs instead of air.)

It was a good day overall.

Today has been boring. I've done nothing but eat a bit and play Sims 3. I would be hanging with friends, but we've already hung out a lot in the last couple of days, so that can wait a bit. The boyfriend is at his dad's house and my bff across the street is working today. There's nothing but computer and video games at my house, so that is what I ended up doing. Tomorrow, I will begin the first of my summer chores by bringing up a few of the boxes from the basement and organizing them with my mom. It actually might be kinda fun. :) I like looking through old stuff sometimes.

Sometimes I worry about getting really horrible diseases. I guess that's normal... I just always wonder what I'd do, who I'd tell first, and so on. I also wonder about the people who inflict pain upon themselves. I can't imagine why they would do it. I don't just mean like cutting or what have you, but anorexia and smoking and whatever else you can do to hurt yourself. To me, it makes no sense, even though I know people have their reasons.

My brain is running wild today since I've had nothing to think about except keeping my two sims alive. (Well, it was one until she got married, haha. What a nerd I am.)

I don't think I've got much else to say. Byebye, kids.

Jun 6, 2009

So I'm not going to be able to get my dad a father's day present because my mom hasn't gotten a job yet. And now I'm really upset... my dad feels like he keeps getting the short end of the stick when it comes to father's day, so now this is just making it worse.

All I wanted to get him was some crab claw oven mitts. They are hilarious and if you know my family, you'll know why I would want them. Maggie's probably the only one that will get it. Two mitts, with shipping, are like $20. It's a little pricey for oven mitts, but it's not like it's anything all that expensive... But there's no money for it. I'm gonna try and figure out how to get money for them, but at the moment I've got about zero options... I guess I could try selling some stuff. GameStop will probably buy some of my games. I think that's what I'll do.

Peace out, homies.

Jun 5, 2009

I won't be able to post tonight, so I figured I'd post now.

I'm heading over to Maggie's pretty soon. We are going to party it up. (Ok, she and a few of our other friends are already partying. As usual, I am the latecomer, due to the fact that the boyfriend is coming but he couldn't leave his house 'til about 10 minutes ago.) I'm pretty stoked. I got all dressed up for summer! Yay!

I played Sims 3 a ton today. It is a fun fun fun game. I'll probably go through withdrawl tonight, as I will be spending the night at Maggie's. Oh well, I have a full day tomorrow...Sunday...Monday... the entire summer, even. But I will not spend my entire summer playing the Sims 3, don't worry. I will be going on college visits and to the fair and hopefully some shows and Six Flags and all sorts of fun places like that. Also doing lots of chores so as to earn money for my trip to France. Huzzah!

Today, I am wearing purple eyeliner. Just thought you should know.

My school just called... all I heard was my mom saying hello... I wonder what it is.

Guess that's all I've got for now. Peace.

Jun 4, 2009

Yay for being done with finals!!! :D

Also, yay for GETTING SIMS 3 TONIGHT! HEEHEEHEE. My daddy is going to pick it up now or within the hour, with or without me (depending on whether or not he wants to ride his motorcycle). Yes, I am spoiled. But I do have to actually earn it, so nanner. I'll end up with chores and yardwork and suchly. But it's worth it. So so so worth it.

Tomorrow is my friends' last day of finals (I was lucky enough to have 8th period study hall, so I don't have an 8th period final, which is the only one tomorrow). After that all gets done, we are celebrating at Maggie's! Woo. We are eventually going to have a paper-burning party, although I will not be burning anything from French, or most likely English. Trig and bio, however, can disappear.

I got my schedule for next year!!! :D It goes like this:

Semester 1:
Advanced French (H)
Graphic Design 1
Drawing 1
Creative Writing
Lunch (but this might get changed since everyone starts with 5th lunch)
Study Hall (I might get this changed)
Drama Studies
Doctrine & Apologetics (Bible)

Semester 2:
Advanced French (H)
Digital Photo 2
Faith & Culture (Bible)
Lunch (same deal as semester 1)
Economics & Personal Finance
Ceramics 2
U.S. Government & Current Issues

Basically, it's the most beautiful schedule I've ever seen. It's a work of art, even. I should post this in my art blog, that's how beautiful it is. Haha. I'm so excited to be a senior!!! WOOOOOOO.

I think that is all. Much love, kiddos!

D: I'm gonna have a C in biology for the semester. Poooooop. Hopefully my mom will understand that that class is the worst possible class for me, no matter how great the teacher is. (And he is awesome, I must say.)

In other news... I went to my friend's house and a few of us watched Robin Hood: Men in Tights, which is SUPER AWESOMETOWN and you should watch it, if you haven't seen it already. Cary Elwes + Dave Chappel (I think that's how it's spelled?) + Mel Brooks + more awesomeness = AWESOMENESS TO THE MAX.

Sailor Moon levels on Little Big Planet disappointed me. There was one 1/2 decent one. The rest either had no plot actually related to the manga/show, or else they were impossible to beat for various reasons. Made me sad. However, there are a few good Napoleon Dynamite levels. Bahahaha.

I don't know what else to say, so good night!

I went and saw UP.

Here are some thoughts:

1) Super cute short before the actual film, as usual. Mega awesometown props.

2) Lovely animation

3) Great plot

4) Just overall a fantastic movie. I would see it again. A+++ with a big smiley face.

To top it all off, I will tell you something slightly embarrassing.
At one point, I actually CRIED.

Now, this may not seem like a big deal (girls cry at movies all the time, right?), but for me, it is. You see, I've NEVER cried at a movie in my life, so for whatever reason, I guess this one was just extra special. There were just some parts that made me want to sob like a baby. Even the boyfriend said he got a little choked up.

So there you have a little bit of non-spoilery input from me!

What else, what else?... Picked up a pizza and just hung at home with the boyfriend. We cracked open the chocolate egg that his mom's Finnish friend gave them. (It was an actual eggshell that had had a hole drilled/cut into it, been emptied and whatever else, and then filled with SOLID chocolate. Amazing.) It was yummy yummy. Who knew the Finns were chocolatiers?

The boyfriend left, but not before I gave him back the little blanket and pillow I'd sewn for him for our 6 months. (I'd already given it to him on our six months, which was a while back. They had velcro on them so that they could stick together and hug, but the velcro was coming loose so he wanted me to reinforce it, which I did.) He wanted to detach the blanket part, but I told him to keep it and make it smell like Old Spice (which is what he wears, heehee) and then give it back to me if he wants. We are just weird and like to keep little things to remind us of each other.

I suppose that's about all I've got to say for tonight.


For reals, now, that's all.
