oooh! remember when i was going crazy trying to figure out what song it was that had the lyric "maybe we're the ones that love is gonna choose"? if not.. well, i was. anyway... it's "love causes cancer" by stuart davis. yay!

argh. i'm sitting here in this stupid dress waiting to leave and wondering if i look as ugly as i feel right now. and... god, i just don't think it's humanly possible. ugh. fucking mirrors. if it weren't for mirrors i'd never knooow how ugly i was and that would be fine. but noooo. *swivels in chair*

oh hey, frowlers:

Dear Your-Site Customer,

Starting on Tuesday, May 28, we will be switching over our mail server to a new, more powerful software called Postfix. This will fix several of the mail issues we have been having as of late, as well as increasing the overall speed of the web servers and mail servers.

New passwords will be generated for users, which will then be sent to the current email address on the server. This means that if we host abc.com for you, and you have an account webmaster@abc.com then the new password for accessing this account will be sent to webmaster@abc.com on the old server shortly and before the password changes on Tuesday. Due to the fact that all passwords are encrypted, we are forced to issue new passwords to everyone. The few new settings that will be required are as follows:

pop3/smtp server: mail.DOMAIN.com (replace DOMAIN.com with your actual domain)
username: user@domain.com (This has changed from the old user/domain.com format)

SMTP authentication is now required, so you will want to look for a setting that is similar to "My Server Requires Authentication" or "Use SMTP Authentication" and make sure it is enabled on your client.

Replacing our current mailing list software will be Major Domo, which has been popular mail list software for many years. This will be configurable in the control panel listed below.

A new control panel for managing your email accounts will be available Tuesday at http://cpanel.your-site.com, and shortly at http://cpanel.DOMAIN.com . Normal users now can login here to change their password without having to bother the master user to do this. Remember to replace DOMAIN.com with your actual domain name.

A new addition is web based email will be available at: http://webmail.your-site.com and shortly at http://webmail.DOMAIN.com The username and password is the same you use to login via normal POP3 client. Remember to replace DOMAIN.com with your actual domain name.

PINE will no longer be available to check email with as of Tuesday.

Thank you for your continued understanding as we get email running fast and reliable as well as increasing the speed of our web servers.

Best Regards,
The Your-Site Team

so... yeah. spread the word to any other frowlers who (sniff) don't read my blog ^_^

you are officially reading the blog of a studly, studly girl. i calculated that i would need at least a 104% on my pre-calc final to get an a in the class... and i saw k-thom today and apparently i did quite well, and there must have been some sketchy rounding going on, cos... i pulled off an a! yay!

(del, i need your home address... i only have your school one.) oh.. and if you need/want to talk to me when i'm gone... call my cell phone and leave me voicemails ^_^ (if you don't know the number.. erm.. email megan and ask her... megan, screen out the crazies ^_~) i'll be back june 9th or 10th-ish.

soup is good.

woot, i totally randomly got a birthday present yesterday! yay socks! and.. assorted other things! (i have no idea why i got a birthday present yesterday, since my birthday is june 21st [*cough cough*] but... hey, i'm not complaining.)

ugh. need to pack and clean room and do laundry. bye everyone! *mwah*

no more physics! ever! yaaaay!

i'm in such a good mood right now. no more physics, no more precalc, no more school for 3 months... leaving tomorrow... went to barnes and nnoble and bought breakfast of champions and coffee.... seeing ep2 tonight... the only way this could possibly be better is if jk rowling showed up at my door and handed me a copy of order of the pheonix.

i had this dream that i was sitting in the lounge talking to rob, and he was telling me about his chronic bedwetting problem. i'm SO amused by this, i can't even... express it. although i shouldn't laugh, poor dream-rob was very upset about it.

*swivels in chair* there are SO many books i want to read right now. but i'm trying to break myself of the habit of reading multiple books at onces so i'm oooonly reading american gods.

ooh. have to go take reid to get his stupid hair cut. sigh.

so i'm re-reading preludes and nocturnes and i think i've re-read "a hope in hell" 3 times now. it's just so...



the words have this beautiful texture in my mind. and it just gives me chills. like when dream says "i am hope" and you can just feel and hear and taste the pause in the scene... you just... hold your breath until you can turn the page. i adore neil gaiman.

random thought: most of my favorite authors are british: gaiman, douglas adams, jk rowling, roald dahl, tolkien... is pullman british? his dark materials takes place in cambridge, doesn't it? anyway. although i suppose the americans do have david sedaris, and vonnegut, and anne lamott.

all i know for sure is my favorite authors are definitely not russian. *glower*

listening to: duke pitchforks, acapella beatles medley

this is SUCH a cool medley. i heart it so much. *dances*

the pre-calc final was suspiciously easy. i finished early and drew math pirates for mr. thompson.

last day of apush... *sob* i'm going to miss that class so much. ms. scott wore her pirate hat to talk to an isu guy who ranomly showed up ^_^ yaay. but *sniff* it was sad. that class was just so great. i gave ms. scott "young zaphod plays it safe" to read ^_^ (she hates reagan. like fires-of-1000-suns hate. baha.)

my anna karenina speech went alright, especially considering the notecard i had said "1876, religion, love, boring, characters." although after i gave it i realized i totally forgot to mention how anna becomes disillusioned and throws herself into a train. eh. i can't be expected to remember every piddling detail of the book, can i?

after tomorrow i'm done with physics forever! yaaaaaaaay! (shh... no... no physics in college. never.)

finished salmon of doubt (except for.. well.. the *actual* salmon of doubt- i'm waiting until after i've read the 1st two dirk gently novels. yes, yes, i know, i don't know why i haven't read them before.) i missed reading books sooo much when i was on my ak mission. whee.

dude, i totally forgot to blog about the most entertaining part of my day....

so in precalc, right, eliz and i solved this triangle and found one of the angles to be 66.6 degrees. this amused us, so we started laughing, and adam and brian asked us why.. so eliz goes "this problem has the sign of the devil!!" and i start laughing even harder, and barely choke out "siine..." fortunately, she knew that i was saying "sine" not "sign", and we cracked up... so then we decided to calculate the actual sine of the devil. bwahaha. (fyi: the sine of 66.6 is .9176, the sine of 666 is -.8090. just.. you know, in case you ever need to solve for satan.)

keep accidentally calling salmon of doubt, salmon of doom. sigh.

random amusing quotes: "we tune because.. we care"

"and now it's time for the 'fat illegal alien in a dress' part of the show! i'd explain, but there's no time."

good folk music... is like... when you take towels that are fresh out of the dryer, so they're warm and fuzzy and they smell all nice like fabric softener... so you wrap yourself up in them and run around screaming "wheee! i'm a fuzzy mummy!"*

*if you haven't done this, i strongly recommend it.

it's like that. but better. like... good folk music makes you feel strongly that the world is really a pretty peachy place. really good folk music makes you want to go out and change the world. *shiver* i just got back from like... 3 hours of really good folk music.

woah. yeah. phil ochs night at blue moon. [blue moon coffeehouse is this great thing that wesleyan does about once a month, with free performances by cool folk singers. it's so awesome.] oh yeah. and like... in case your parents don't happen to be former hippies... phil ochs is this awesome, awesome 60's protest folk singer. he's so great. er, i should say, was so great, since he killed himself when he was 35. but anyway.

so there were about... i guess... 9 or so singers doing assorted phil covers and a few of their own songs. and it was just... insanely great. they were all SO good. there was this duo called magpie, they were husband and wife and they were SO awesome. like... their last album was entirely songs about john brown (the abolitionist who attempted to lead a slave revolt.. but it kinda didn't work at all.) oh, and SONiA was there... she's so awesome. god. it was great. i feel so warm and fuzzy.

this is a really neat song that... oh dear, i can't remember her name... this one really cool woman sang. [william worthy, btw, was a reporter who got his passport revoked because he went to cuba.. but then there was angry protest, including this song, and he got it back. yay! and it's such a neat song.]

Ballad of William Worthy
by Phil Ochs

Well, it's of a bold reporter whose story I will tell
He went down to the Cuban land, the nearest place to hell
He'd been there many times before, but now the law does say
The only way to Cuba is with the CIA

William Worthy isn't worthy to enter our door
Went down to Cuba, he's not American anymore
But somehow it is strange to hear the State Department say
You are living in the free world, in the free world you must stay

Five thousand dollars or a five year sentence may well be
For a man who had the nerve to think that travelin' is free
Oh why'd he waste his time to see a dictator's reign
When he could have seen democracy by travelin' on to Spain?

William Worthy isn't worthy to enter our door
Went down to Cuba, he's not American anymore
But somehow it is strange to hear the State Department say
You are living in the free world, in the free world you must stay

So, come all you good travelers and fellow-travelers, too
Yes, and travel all around the world, see every country through
I'd surely like to come along and see what may be new
But my passport's disappearing as I sing these words to you

Well, there really is no need to travel to these evil lands
Yes, and though the list grows larger you must try to understand
Try hard not to be surprised if someday you should hear
The whole world is off limits, visit Disneyland this year

William Worthy isn't worthy to enter our door
Went down to Cuba, he's not American anymore
But somehow it is strange to hear the State Department say
You are living in the free world, in the free world you must stay

yaay. it's really kind of scary how a lot of his songs that were written in the 60's are still so poignant and fitting today. sad, though. sigh. hmm. should go to sleep now instead of trying to be reflective and such. bad idea. sleep=good idea.

*bounce* went to barnes and noble today... bought salmon of doubt and sophie's world. am now broke. but that's alright. money may not buy me love, but it buys me books.

saw outlier... they were really good except i couldn't understand a damn word rob was saying. but that's alright, it sounded good anyhow. am slightly angry- i left almost right after it was over because i had to pick up reid, and then ended up waiting 1/2 hour for him. frowl. ah well. it gave me time to start reading salmon of doubt. yay!

there is a light that

when you feel lonely
and the world just
can't understand you
pirates yeah

steal the jewel
watch it break
it cuts with an eye
i can't escape
the ruby heals
alone i stand
when i sail my ship
on dry land

there is a light that
shines on the frontier
and baby someday
we're gonna be there
pirates yeah

wtf? that lightsaber website is giving me weird german popup ads... "Willkommen bie Flirt-Express". lol. "Die kostenlose flirtline!"

it's hella cold in my house. *shiver* god, i'm so whiny when i'm sick. i apologize.

perhaps i shall go study for physics now. or pretend to.

oh!! almost forgot... i had this WEIRD dream last night... like.. for some reason i had *another* dream about my world lit class, except the only people there who are actually *in* world lit were tura and i. and then there were some random friends of mine, like miriam and amanda, and some other random people... and then like.... we were dividing into partners to take a quiz or something. and for some reason *everyone* was asking me to be their partners [see, now you know it's a dream ^_^] and i was flailing about. and then del, YOU walked in, and i was all "dude! del! you're in this class now! i'll be YOUR partner!!" but then, you took your shirt off. and for some reason no one found this odd. instead... well, like.. you were wearing this really shiny, metallic rainbow bra. and we were all talking about how pretty it was. and you go, "really? you like it? i got it for $2!" and then i woke up.

i blame the drugs.

well. fine-ish. *sob* must study for precalc and physics and do my stupid anna karenina project... and not die... argh.

am considering not bothering studying for precalc... i need a 104 on the final to pull off an a in the class. fucking math. physics, though... i actually have a pretty good shot at pulling off an a in that class. only need an 82 on the final. and world lit.. like... i don't even need to do that stupid project to get an a in the class. bah.

i just wandered downstairs and got distracted by the star wars fan film contest thingy... omb. i love kevin smith so much. "it looks like some of these filmmakers could give me a run for my money! oh, who am i kidding, a visually challenged ewok with a polaroid could give me a run for my money!"

heey what's joshua up to these days? anyone know?

so. i bet you don't know what number comes between 4 and 5. but rob and i do. *nod* it's Q. not to be confused with the letter Q- although Q and Q are visually quite similar, the number Q and the letter Q are veeeery different. *nod nod*

see... this is what happens when mr. holbrook can't number his worksheets properly ^_^ rob actually worked out a base Q math system... but it confused the hell out of me.

3 hours of sleep: not enough. but made interesting discovery that watching hard day's night is like getting sleep. it's very energizing. yay beatles!

precalc=doom. doooom.

omg.... SO AMUSED....

Two Muffins are in an oven. One looks over and says, "Gee, don't you think it's hot in here." and the other muffin says, "AAAAHHHH, IT'S A TALKING MUFFIN!!"

listening to: tori, cornflake girl

duuude.. that was SO weird. i have winamp set to random, and it just went from cornflake girl (unplugged) to cornflake girl (live at hamburg) ...

hmm. so. i just spent an hour on the phone with telecharge/ticketmaster.. but i bought allll our tickets for nyc... *squee!!!!!*
june 5: the full monty
june 6: cabaret
june 7: rent
june 8: forbidden broadway
june 9: urinetown (woot, i love my mom, she was randomly like "iiii want to see urinetown!" "instead of full monty?" "nooo.. i want to see urinetown AND the full monty..." so... yay!)

oh my god!!! the rest of the red just fell off my ladybug!!! i mean... the necklace.. that megan gave me... the red just all peeled off at once... now my ladybug is naked! *sob* this is so tragic.

listening to: beatles, revolution

computer is being SO slow. am becoming hostile. *hiss*

*sigh* confession... whenever i check my email and find something from curtis it just makes me happy. am such a fangirl. sigh. sigh sigh sigh. for those interested: he'll be in anything goes in north carolina this summer. why? why why why?

hey. that's kind of like dr. seuss. except. not. right.

so. i hate the fact that when nyquil says 8 hours, it fucking means 8 hours, no matter how long i wanted to sleep. heh, i just got terribly confused by the fact that i wanted to type a bold tag, and then the letter i.. i ended up with an italic tag. sigh. so. but i've been up since like.. 8:30. checked my voicemail and like... i *could* have gone to work. but she said "if you didn't get this in time it's no problem" sooo... i... didn't get it in time. right. *nod* i accomplished so much. i did a load of laundry.. and put away all the dishes... and read a lot in ak... the story is finally about anna again! woot! of course it'll probably go back to levin and his communist theories in like, 5 pages or so... but whatever. haha, typed "lenin" instead of "levin"... amused. anyway.

mother's day reflection: am scarily like my mom. i think it's a good thing. cuz i love my mom. but seriously... like almost all my personality traits, good and bad, are from her. am sarcastic and cynical like my mom... but also try very hard not to judge people like her. we both love to read but are bad at math... we're both rather prone to acting polite to people and then mocking them behind their backs. we both cannot accept compliments. i think it's so funny when people compliment her because she acts the same way i do... she'll deny it, and then finally say "thanks" but she'll have this look on her face like "you're wrong! wrong!" we have most of the same political views... and thanks to her ex-hippyness i have a healthy distrust of authority. la la la. think mayhap cold medicine is inspiring odd sense of introspection. also am talking like bridget jones again. sigh.

had something else to say but think have forgotten it.

oh, remembered: my mom bought this star wars cereal... it's SO great. omg. it's like.. kix... but it has marshmellows in it... and the marshmellows are shaped like lightsabers and yodas and ships aaand... r2-d2s!!! the r2-d2s really... don't look anything like r2-d2... but it's the thought that counts. and the thought here is that i just ate r2-d2 for breakfast.


yes. oh, and in case you were.. in suspense or anything.. i decided that the 4th show we're going to see in nyc is the full monty. woot.

mmm. i just had an x-files orgy ^_^ "unusual suspects," "the jersey devil", aaaand "jose chung's from outer space". hee. i'm such a loser. but i'm okay with that. sigh. SUCH good episodes. well. i'm not big on jersey devil, but i was too lazy to fast foward through it to get to jose chung. heey does anybody remember when my aim name was josechung5?? wow... that takes me back. *sniff* anyway. such classic episodes. "he said they just found your bleepin' ufo!"

"that's cash only, elrond, i don't take no personal checks from the bank of middle earth!"

"how could our government- the people who brought us amtrak- be part of some deep conspiracy?"

"say it... say it!" "*sigh* your kung fu is the best!"

and of course... "here's a tip: aluminum foil. it makes a lovely hat and it keeps out the government's mind control rays."

*happy sigh* oooh... when txf was good, it was great. but now that it's bad... it's bad. is the finale on sunday or on next sunday? if it's next sunday... hmm, i'm going to miss it to see rachael sage. wow. a couple years ago.. i can't even imagine how upset i'd be about missing the series finale. but now it's just like "eh..." siiigh. it's really sad to think about how freaking obsessed i used to be with that show and now... i'm not. yeah.

oooh. i just wandered downstairs and my brother was watching primetime glick and david duchovny was on! it was SO funny, glick was like "so... you were on the x-files. that's about illegal aliens, right? people from mexico?" and david was like "well, this year it is... they're running out of new storylines." bwahaha. the only thing is.... like... he was IN the illegal alien episode. lol.

oh god. so tired. ap test not too bad. a couple multiple choices i had no clue on and a couple i was fuzzy on... the dbq did not involve jacksonian democracy, thank god. i'll be disappointed with myself if i don't get a 5 but i don't think i will.

blah. went to trina's with miriam... miriam and i talked about being depressed while trina looked on in confusion. and then she told me i acted like a drug addict. so um whatever. we had a really lazy evening cos we were all incredibly tired... we went to jeffery allan's and m&t got supplies for their architecture project and then we watched teevee.

aaah... so much work to do this weekend.... physics.. precalc... anna effing karenina... *sob*

random amusing quotes: "in the navy.. you can sail the seven seas! in the navy.. you can... be at ease!"
"in the navy.. you can... commit piracies?"

"i wonder what the navy's official stance on piracy is..."

"stop raping my ankles!"

i am SO tired. i got home at like.. 4.. and promptly fell asleep and didn't get up again until 7ish. gah. i felt like crap all day today. and i like... couldn't concentrate at all so i'm certain i failed my physics quiz. i can't even muster the strength to care right now. bah.

today i discovered that i really don't like it when people touch my ankles. it feels SO weird. dude. rob is such the ankle rapist.

speaking of you, rob.. you were in the dream i just had. *thinks* i think our whole world lit class was there... and... a monster of some sort.. and.. i can't remember anything else. hm.

oh yeah- and rob and/or kellie... what's up with factor-five? is anything up there yet? eh?

maybe i should study a bit more for the ap exam.. since it's tomorrow.. and all... but... i dunno. we took a mini-practice test in class today and i got 24/25... and i know i know most of the stuff... and i'm so tired! *sob*

yeah. i'm developing a new appreciation for tori's songs that like.. don't make sense, per se, but since she's singing them, she makes them make sense... you know? i mean like.. just about anybody could sing "silent all these years" and you'd understand it. not so with "space dog" or "yes anastasia" or "icicle" or like... you know... a lot of songs. yay for tori.

after school my mom decided we should go get ice cream... and mine tasted weirdly like almond... and then i started feeling even worse.. and i went home and went to sleep and i think my last conscious thought was "heey... doesn't cyanide taste like almond? or is that digitalis? no.. not digitalis... because mulder didn't notice it until scully asked if the soda was diet... hmm. i hope i don't die." lol.

listening to: tori, space dog

this is a wickedcool live version. yay for hereinmyhead!

the beatles almost killed me today. *nod* we were watching hard day's night in pe, and when it got to the "do you have a name for that hairstyle?" "arthur." part i started laughing really hard and i choked on my gum. well. it wasn't really a near-death experience or anything. but whatever. it makes for a more dramatic story this way.

i think i did alright on the precalc makeup quiz. (i got a 12/36 on the original...) i hope i did alright, anyway.

further revelation on dorkiness: anyone who thinks that "i think he ran against truman in 1946.." "well, that was his first mistake..." is funny is a dork.

i think our entire history class qualifies. hee. [see... '46 wasn't a presidential election year... and... it's funny, dammit!]

school... sucks. *nod* and the more of anna karenina i read, the more hostile i become towards it. (un?)fortunately i'm now reading it for a world lit project, so i have to finish it. school is a more important motivation to read this thing than my own feeble willpower. *shakes fist angrily at tolstoy*

aaanyway. homework and such. [break a leg, priscellie!!]

duuuude i just realized it's cinco de mayo! feliz cinco de mayo, mis amigos! woooooot.

i've used up TWO highlighters studying for history today. granted, they were highlighters i've had since the beginning of the year... but still. it was sad. goodbye, green. goodbye, orange. thank goodness for you, faithful pink... and whatever happened to yellow?

why am i talking to my highlighters in my blog? it's not like they can read. *blink*

my left ring finger hurts. owie.

i think the line "i will turn this ship around" from the rachael sage song "ode to a sailor" is so funny because i always think of her as like, a frazzled pirate mom.. "you kids shut up! i WILL turn this ship around! you just wait until your FATHER gets home!" although i suppose if he were a pirate too he'd live on the ship. but maybe he's not a pirate, maybe he's a respectable businessman who's ashamed that his wife is a pirate but he loves her so he'll support her no matter what, even though his co-workers ridicule him like you wouldn't believe.

so i'm thinking it's probably not a good thing if 5 out of the 8 "warning signs of depression" apply to me, is it?

shay's rebellion was about taxes and the instability of currency and it occurred under the articles of confederation.

the whiskey rebellion was about excise taxes and it occurred under the constitution.

both were quickly put down, but both had lasting significance.

just fyi.

oh yeah. and i was looking at the tori dolls, and i realized talia was right-- the strange little girl doll DOES look like bjork! iiinteresting. oh, and only 2 people have voted for one of them... so everyone please do that ^_^ [i love you kait and *nina*!]

*nina*: she's not PURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
del: DIE!!!!!!!!
del: Genocide is for ME-O-CIDE!

bwahaha. i'm still giggling. but, you dorks, my mom has a CHICAGO accent [and just barely at that], not a jewish mother accent... lol. although she does occasionally leave me voicemails that start out "renata, this is your mother..." lol. i'm going to ask her to start ending them all "honey please caaaaalll... your mother..." teehee. so easily amused.... genocide is for me-o-cide... lol.

well hi. welcome to the new layout. thoughts?

answer to the inevitable question, "what's up with carmen sandiego?"... well, i love carmen sandiego. she was such a formative part of my childhood. plus she's just hella cool. also, if you'd like you can look at carmen as a metaphor for me... she's mysterious and always travelling and maybe travelling is a metaphor for changing and maybe i'm hiding something and so on and so forth. but then you'd be overanalyzing so i wouldn't recommend that. please let me know if you notice any errors.. or any pages whose html i forgot to change... or anything. and once again, many thanks to priscellie for really cleaning up the side image, and also fixing my foolish html errors. i bow before her superior webpaging skills ^_^

oh, and before i forget... i don't even know how many of you noticed my tori doll down in the menu box. but i love her ^_^ through the last 2 layout changes i kept the "boys for pele" doll [gray shirt and blue skirt.] but i noticed that her hair sort of blends in with the red background so i thought perhaps a change. so i looked at some of the other dolls and picked a couple other alternatives ["new age", "under the pink", and "strange little girl."] but i can't decide... so... everyone please vote, via comment, on one of them. (pele is the blue skirted one, new age has a tan skirt and glasses, under the pink has a white dress, and strange little girl is all in black.) thanks in advance, amigos ^_^

so yeah. my dad eventually came home and i made it to the history study group a mere 45 minutes late. lol. i reaaally need to study. *sigh*

afterwards, i went over to the bank and cashed a few checks, and then i was inevitably drawn to barnes and noble. i bought my mom a couple terribly cool mother's day gifts. and i bought myself a kakfa short-story collection ^_^ woot.

then i went and rode my bike for awhile, but i got my shoelace tangled in the gears and i fell. my hand was bleeding for awhile and i think i'll have a bruise or two, but i'm okay. much more okay than i should have been considering how i fell ^_^ so then i decided to turn around and go back, but after a bit [i'd probably only ridden a mile and a half or so when i turned back] i started to feel SO sick. gah. by the time i got home i wanted to DIE. i curled up and took a brief nap and felt much better upon awakening.

oh. and while i was driving home my mind was wandering like always and i suddenly realize how freaking similar i am to dinah, the protaganist of surrender the pink by carrie fisher. i mean i realized that when i read the book, probably a year or so ago. [we're both terribly insecure and we both tend to pick at the skin surrounding our nails, and therefore we also both go through a lot of bandaids.] but anyway, i was thinking about it a bit more in depth and i realized that dinah talks a lot about her 2 moods, rollicking roy and sedimentary pam... i believe she says something about "roy parties all night without a care in the world while pam sits by the river and sobs." and like. i'm like that too. i'll be perfectly happy [roy] and then all of a sudden pam will drop in. damn you pam. [excellent book, by the way, you should all go read it.]

oh, and another thing i was thinking about is how much i love to read all the frowl blogs [and you too, priscellie, honorary frowler]. it's weird how i see pieces of myself in all of you guys... and it's so nice... because i've noticed we all tend to share assorted insecurities and/or dysfunctions... and i don't know. it's just so reassuring when i read something that one of you has written and i go "hey i feel like that sometimes too..." and i don't quite know why it is that i feel like i know you better than i know most of the people i know in real life [arg, used the word "know" too many times] except that i know [there it is again!] that i'll blog things that i'd probably never say to anyone, just because i have to say it, just because i have to get it out. and i feel weird sharing things like that with people. blogging gives me a layer of semi-anonymity... a layer of protection. aww jeeze. i'm getting all sappy. but i heart you all.

anyway. i should go study for apush now. peace out ^_^

random amusing quote: "you taste like spiderman!"

arr. i needed to leave 20 minutes ago to be on time for the apush study group. unfortunately, despite being told repeatedly that i would need the car at 11:30, my father has not yet returned home with it. thanks, dad.

but anyway. i think i'm crazy. like yesterday during one of the spaz bowl matches, i suddenly realized "heeey, i don't remember who wrote spoon river anthology!!!" for no apparent reason. there hadn't been any tossups about it or anything.. i just.. couldn't remember. and it just bothered me more than i can even put into words. i was literally shaking because i couldn't think of his name. so the second the match was over i was like "mom! mom it's really important... WHO WROTE SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY???" luckily for my sanity, she remembered. edgar lee masters. edgar lee masters edgar lee masters. whee.

new blog layout progressing nicely- 1000 thankyous to priscellie.

response to comments from last blog entry:

1. spiderman was so freaking cool. i'll review it in the lhcb later.
2. talia, you're really pretty so don't even say that. *frowl*
3. i am NOT like the incredible hulk. *smashes jason for even saying that* well actually i don't really know anything about the incredible hulk so maybe i am. but i'm objecting on general principle.
4. rob- don't worry about it, it's not your fault that my friends are hot or that i'm a loser.

oh yes, and *nina*- yaaay for kafka!! one of my favorite sam and max jokes ever.. in the game, you go to this carnival and it has a freakshow, and one of the things is a.. human insect thing, and if you use the "look" button on it, sam says "mmm, kafka-esque!" it's great.

damn you dad. hurry up and get home or else i'll fail the ap exam and drop out of high school and become a CARNIE and it'll all be YOUR fault. *nod nod*

random amusing quotes: "oooh! she said '1984' but i thought she said 'it's niels bohr!'"

"stop falling asleep! oooh... i'm SO going to beat you!"
"would the virtual aspca approve of this?"

"it's smooth... smooth like tj!"
"never say that again, tj..."

"so if an axe-murderer ever has a gun to your head and asks you what the hartford convention is..."
"why would an axe-murderer have a gun? and why would he ask about the hartford convention?"
"... he just would!!"

sooo um. i'm redesigning tbn. i just. couldn't deal with the pink anymore. and of COURSE the need for a new design project strikes me 8 days before the ap test and while i still haven't worked out all the kinks of the thespian website.


stupid... ness. but if i can get it to work the new layout is going to be hella cool. all i'm gonna say is... "where in the world am i?" *giggle*

yeah. i got to school at 7:30 this morning and realized it was schedule a so classes didn't start until 9. doh. so i was just like "well, that's okay, i'll use this time to do my history guidebooks!" but then.. people came... and... well, in 1 1/2 hours i managed to do exactly 3 true/false questions. sigh. buuut steve and i played with twiggy's gigapet!! and we were both sleep-deprived so we were SOO amused by it. like... and it was salem from sabrina the teenage witch, so it would drive its little car around and stuff... SO cute. but it kept falling asleep for steve so he got mad and kept beating it. lol. some people just can't be trusted with power.

i found out i'm getting paid to time at the iesa spaz bowl tournament!!! whee! i was going to do it for FREE but i get $15 and free food! woot.and i love jr. high questions because they make me feel smart. hee.

i have come to the conclusion that russian novelists write the way i think: they are easily distracted and they tend to spend far too much time on the things that do not matter. note to self: do not become russian novelist.

instant star wars slash!

The twin suns of Tatooine were beginning to set, bathing the desert in a fiery crimson glow. Han was walking back to his ship after a long, hard day of dancing, and decided to pause to admire the sunset. He sat down in a handy park and gazed up at the sky. In this romantic setting, he couldn't help but think thoughts of Luke , his longtime crush. With a sigh, he began to stroke his arm, wishing desperately that Luke was there with him.

Meanwhile, Luke was having a terrible time down at the cantina. It had been a long day and he had gone down there to relax, but Grand Moff Tarkin just wouldn't leave him alone. The drunk, sloppy Grand Moff Tarkin kept trying to get into his pants. Luke sighed in frustration and slapped the hand that kept finding his knee.

' Grand Moff Tarkin! Get lost, you dork! '

Grand Moff Tarkin sniffled pathetically and slithered off.

'That's better,' Luke sighed in relief, downing the last of his drink. 'Now I'm outta here.'

He flipped a credit chip onto the bar and walked out, heading into the desert for a walk in the sunset.

Luke hadn't walked very far when he saw an absolutely gorgeous sight. There, sitting in a park and bathed in the sunset glow was Han. Luke couldn't help but run up to him.

' Luke! What are you doing here?' Han asked in shock.

'I apologise... am I not welcome?' Luke replied smoothly, staring openly at Han's beautiful arm.

Han blushed attractively. 'You're very welcome, Luke... in fact, there's no one I would rather have by my side.'

Luke felt encouraged by this, and swept Han into his arms for a lazy kiss. He put his hands on Han 's arm, massaging gently.

'Oh, Luke! pookie! That feels fluffy!'

'Oh really?'

Luke took this as a sign that Han wanted more, and pulled him over to the bedroom. He pulled out a convenient dildo, grinning lustfully, and pressed it to Han's knee. Soon they were involved in hot, passionate screwing, and all night long the park echoed with the sounds of their love.

rofl. the thought of star wars slash.. just... bwahahahahaha.

listening to: random college acapella, freefalling

What Weapon Are You?

I fire

I don't like getting messy, but will fight if I have to, and some people consider me girly.

[i'm galadriel!]
I am Galadriel, the White Lady, Queen of Lothlorien. I was given Nenya, the Ring of Adamant, but I remained untouched by the Shadow. I gave shelter, gifts and advice to the Fellowship, but I turned green while they were around. My bad. In the movie, I'm played by Cate Blanchett.
|| Which Lord of the Rings Elf are you? ||

yeah for elves!

oh, so, i was sitting downstairs watching the simpsons, and my mom calls in from the other room "renata, do you want to score?" so i figured i'd probably misheard... ".... do i WHAT?" "do you want to SCORE? on friday?" "what are you TALKING about??" "for scholastic bowl! do you want to score at the metcalf tournament! .... oh! i guess that did sound kind of weird..." rofl. it was quality.

but. yay. i like to score. and so does moby. *nod nod*
