It is so weird to me that St. Patrick's Day is such a non-holiday for so many people. It has always been a really big deal in my family (mostly because of my mother) but also in school and life in general.

-When I was little, I used to take milk to school for lunch (in a Beauty and the Beast thermos that 1. matched my sweet BatB lunchbox and 2. leaked like a motherfucker) and every year on St. Patrick's Day my mother would sneakily dye my milk green, and then tell me the leprechauns had done it.

-We made leprechaun traps every year in school, and on St.Partick's Day morning our classrooms would be festooned with little green footprints (that looked suspiciously like fingerprints) and harmless pranks. And those damn leprechauns somehow managed to always get the bait (Rollos) out of the traps without getting caught. I think I believed in leprechanuns until like, high school.

-There is always ALWAYS corned beef and cabbage and soda bread, and no one in my family is ever not wearing green (I used to even have little shamrock decals for my nails). I always try to watch The Luck of the Irish on Disney (made a lot easier by my DVR) and I did manage to make it through one of the Leprechaun movies once (The second one? Maybe? It gave me nightmares regardless) because I am committed to this holiday.


Basically, St. Patrick's Day is a BIG DEAL and I don't know why everyone else doesn't think so.
September 6th, 2004: God I was embarrassing when I was younger. I don't even remember where the limericks were posted, or what they said... Though I'm pretty sure the 'werewolf from Nantucket' crack was my idea of a very funny joke.

September 6th, 2007: Oh, Seshomaru. I still love him, and he grows to murder fewer people as the series goes on. He's just the fluffiest killer ever. As for the second part of that post, I really did not like that class. Father Mac was supposed to be the best priest/teacher ever, but he just annoyed the CRAP out of me. So I was pretty much making my own fun every time I had that class.



Answer to last Friday's song: Real World, by Matchbox 20. No one guessed this. Also, looking at that post, I noticed that I didn't give the answer last Friday to the song the week before that... So, the answer to the song on August 23rd was Hey Jealousy, by the Gin Blossoms. No one guessed this one either.

DONE

May. 6th, 2011 07:05 pm

Guys. Guys. GUYS.

I am done with my schooling. Not done for a little while, done forever. My last paper ever was due at 7. The end.


I have to say, it's a little weird being done, with no more homework or later classes looming on the horizon.


 

Also, as I told Andrew, I refuse to learn anything else, ever.  :)
 


Am pleased to report that I printed my slides this morning with no paper jams or other mishaps. Carry on.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RONALD BILLIUS WEASLEY!!!


May it be a good one, and poison-free.




Also, completely unrelated, I got accepted to grad school at Duke University. I keep forgetting to put that up here. It's not my first choice school, and it's awfully far away, but this does mean that I will be going to grad school somewhere, at least. :)

Plus, not to brag, but acceptance to Duke is nothing to sneeze at. So I thought you all should know.

Today in Stats while Professor Warren was handing back our tests, he said that he still didn't know anyone's name, so he was calling out names and waiting for people to indicate that it was their test.

Then he got to my test, called my name, and put it down in front of me, saying, "you're the only person in this class who's name I know. Congratulations."


I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Does he know my name because of how smart I've been, or what a smart ass I've been? My last homework had some pretty snarky answers on it. But I do sit right in the front, and I'm not shy about asking questions. Though Becky is just as smart, and in fact got a higher grade on the test. Hmm. It's a puzzle.

Either way, I'm notable. Hurray!
Just so we're all on the same page, 5am is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too early to be awake.

And I can no long glorify in having no classes before 10, because I'm now taking Adolescent Development at 9:30. (Which is only a half hour earlier, so it's not a huge deal, but still.) 

Why am I taking Adolescent Development, you ask? Well, because Evolution got cancelled, due to the professor getting tonsil cancer. (I didn't even know there was such a thing.) I didn't actually need to pick up another class, I mean, I'm good as far as graduating credits go, and I was taking 12 credits (the number you need to be a full time student) for the semester, but I felt like such a slacker, taking only three classes. So I scoured the class list and signed up for a psych class that I hope will be fun. We'll see how that goes.

The good news is, I don't have to be in this class, so I can totally drop it if it's boring or hard or I don't like the teacher.


Just updating on my life. School starts on Monday. I actually want to start school. It's a strange feeling.
I've decided that I hate it when teachers say, "We'll go into more detail on this later." No. Either you tell me all about it now, with all the full gory details, or you stop talking about it for good. I don't want to have to write about it in more than one section in my notebook. And when you say it about three things in a row, I get really REALLY annoyed. Why can't we have these details now? Why later? ARGH.

Also, it's the mitotic spindle. You told us what it is, where it is, what it does, how it does it, and what it's made out of. How much more detail is there?
 I know most, or all, of you are going to disagree with this, but, to be both honest and nasty, I don't really care. I'm angry, this is my journal, and I'm going to type it out.



dl:dr
There was this bit (what's the real word..Oh yeah. Segment.)err...segment on the news tonight about the new books teenagers are reading.

It basically said that they were trashy smut disguised as novels. One was about a father sleeping with his daughter, one was about a bunch of girls planning an "oral sex party" (entitled The Rainbow Club, or something like that. More on that later.) and one was about a teacher seducing and screwing her student.

My first thought was "Wow. That's as bad as fanfiction. At least fanfic authors are fairly anonymous and not making money off their smut."

My second thought was "I wonder what the story'd be like if they found out the things teenagers read on the internet on fanfic sites? Ah, if only they knew. These novels are the least of their worries when it comes to corrupting teens, let me tell you."

And my third thought was "Well...Anything sounds bad when you discribe it like that. We even read some pretty scandalous books in English this year if you break them down into one sentence focused on the bad bits."

Observe:

Their Eyes Were Watching God: A woman has three husbands; one who makes her do all the work, one who is possessive and abusive, and one who gets rabies and whom she eventually kills.

Othello: Man thinks his wife is cheating on him, so he smothers her, only to find out she did nothing wrong; at which point he kills himself.

MacBeth: Man kills king, then hires men to kill best friend and enemy's entire family, then has head chopped off by enemy.

See? Pretend you know nothing about those stories and just read that short description. What impression do you get? Anything sounds bad when you condense it into one sentence.

Then I had to figure out how to NOT tell my parents why I laughed so hard at the cover of the Rainbow Party book, which showed various shades of lipstick in bright colors; the reason for my hilarity being that Kayla Bossi explained to several people once exactly what it meant to "make a rainbow" and then told me I should get some female friends together and do it for Phil. (Who I was dating at the time.) I think she may have even volunteered herself and Lauren.

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

(Oh. Some of you don't know why that's gross do you? Allow me to explain. THIS NEXT BIT HERE IS A BIT R OR EVEN X RATED. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK! "Making a rainbow" is when a group of girls all put on different colored lipsticks, and then give the same guy blowjobs, thereby making a rainbow in a place where no rainbow should be.)

All together now: Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

Current Mood: cold
MY YEARBOOK CAME TODAY!

Yay.

I like the fact that I'm in it several times, and that my senior picture came out well, and that they included me in all the appropriate clubs and spelled my name right.

However, according to this yearbook:

Hannah is a junior who has not yet graduated.

This girl's name is either Kathryn Ogorzalek, Katherine Ogorzalek, or Kathryn Orgazolek. (The first one is the correct spelling)

Kathryn is not a member of Encore Theater, even though she's the the picture and was the Treasurer.

Anna's last name is Laird.

Kelli may actually spell her name with a Y.

Hannah may actually spell Sternberg "Sternburg"

And I think the cover is ugly.

Ha ha.

I thought I had rehersal tonight, but apparantly not. So here I am home killing time until I go to Hannah's. I anticipate a fantastic evening, and many quotes to share with you all tomorrow. Aren't you all excited? I know I am.

School was a colossal watse of time today, because I had one 40 minute class, and it was physics. Blech.

Can you all tell that I have nothing to say, but am trying to occupy my time?

Anyways, here's a thought: my eternal respect to anyone who can give me the next lyric...AND NO CHEATING!  I have Jedi mind powers. I will know.

"I'm so lost, I'm barely here..."

Today I love Seaseme Street. Which I watched this morning. I love it for three reasons. 1. Oscar had a smell phone. 2. There was a talk show woth Dr. Feel. (Think about that.) 3. JOURNEY TO ERNIE!

Today I hate waking up with a massive headache.

Eww

Mar. 3rd, 2005 04:11 pm

Sorry, I'm having icon ADD again. Expect frequent icon changes in the near future.

I have to have a serious journal entry for a minuet. I've been feeling really off lately, like I want things or want to do things that no one else wants to do, and I don't know why. Also, I desperately want to read and finish the stories I am writing, but whenever I have a free moment I seem to be on the computer or watching tv...

I just feel like I'm in an awful funk and I don't know what to do.

And, I got a 74 on my Calc test, and I know none of you are going to quite understand what that means in terms of my life, but it's bad. Trust me. And I can't possibly do anything more to bring up my grade in Calc. I go to class, I pay attention, I take notes, I do the homework, I study, and I still can't manage to get back up to the A I used to have. WTF?

HUGE SIGH

I just want high school to end and college never to begin. Is that so much to ask?

Because I am also stressing about the overnight at St. Michael's this weekend, which I am dreading. And I know that I'm going to have to spend every night there eventually, but it'll be in my own room, (well, with a roommate but still at least partly my own room) and it'll just be different and I don't wanna go.

I DONT WANNA GO TO COLLEGE!!!!!!!!

I just hate this. All of it. Anything that involves the word school or class or test or quiz.

But I don't hate any of you, and I won't care if you don't even read this, because I know it's long and boring and stupid.

But I feel slightly better now.

Well, we took the Teen Risk Behavior Test  IT'S NOT A TEST IT'S A "QUESTIONAIRE" excuse me, questionaire today. Hahahahahaha.

Three things I like about this stupid "questionaire"

1. It got me out of the majority of Spanish class

2. How they bold all the really important parts of the questions, just in case we don't get it.

3. The question "How many times have you brought a weapon, such as a gun, knife, or club to school?" At which I tried very hard not to laugh, but failed miserably. I kept thinking of Hannah threatening people with her Biology book, which is definately to be considered a deadly weapon.

Also, read my icon very carefully. I really like what it says.

Hello!

Jan. 25th, 2005 08:18 pm
First, a thank you. Becky: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH FUCKING AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND A DAY, AND EVEN LONGER THAN THAT. THAT CD IS FUCKING AMAZING! THANK YOU! (also, I was listening to it in my car and I was on Music of the Night and I had it turned up really loud, and the next song starts with wicked loud and creepy organ music, which I did not know, and it scared me and I screamed and panicked and couldn't remember how to turn it down. So thank you again!)

Second, a rant: You know, if you walk down the hall, innocently, and someone innocently bumps into you, they usually apologize, especially if they know you, they may even use your name, or at the very least they look ashamed, or mumble something, or smile or giggle or SOMETHING to show that they are sorry. Some really nice innocent people do this even if it is not their fault.

And sometimes someone may innocently scratch you with their binder, or tread on your foot, and not notice, and that is ok because hallways are crowded places.

These two classes of people are nice, normal people who can go hang with Azriphale in Heaven.

Then there are some people who will carelessly and not innocently at all whip their hats around, and smack innocent passersby who are deep in thought and therefore looking at the floor, in the forehead, and then LAUGH ABOUT IT. These people should burn in Hell, not with Crowley, because even he, a minion of Hell, is too good for them.

These people are Zach Smith, the bloody wanker. (Can you all tell I am 1. Pissed, and 2. Have been reading Good Omens today?)

Thirdly, quotes! I am glad you all liked my easy quote, I made it easy on purpose, and I am glad many people commented ad all got it right. Those people will each get a Eunuch point, and they are Bart, Janeea, Alison, Kim, Sarah, and Hannah. Yeah!

Now for the next quote, you get one point if you get it, and 10 points if you can tell me the missing lines to the songs, from the same movie, which I will also post. AND, I will give 5 points to anyone who tells me the actress who is the main character.(This gives you all sort of a chance to catch up to Janeea, who is currently kicking all your butts with 16 points. The closest is Becky with 9 points.) "This isn't the Fairy Vale. It's only a weed patch."

Song 1:
Let me be your wings
Let me be your only love
---------------------
Let me be your wings
Let me lift you high above
Everything we're dreaming of
Will soon be ours
Anything that you desire
Anthing at all
Every day I'll take you higher
And I'll never let you fall

Song 2:
Romeo and Juliet
Were very much in love where they were wed
-----------------------------
So where are they now?
They're dead, dead, very very dead!

I am dangerous when I am on vacation and have nothing to do but update my journal.

I'm rereading the sequels to Stealing Harry, and I found these and they're quite frankly hysterical...

Harry asking about the birds and the bees "And girls don't lay eggs?"

Remus and Sirius haven't been quite as inconspicuous as they thought... "So how do you do it with all boy parts?"

Sirius could hear Remus' sly murmur in his head. Any number of enjoyable ways...

I highly recommend reading it here...http://oojahs.snoo.org/stealingharry/rh05birdsbees.htm

And don't forget to read my fics too...I posted them about two posts ago...they're good...just want to make sure you don't forget about them...I promise I'll stop eventually...

Well here I am, home for lunch due to Senior privliges and a study hall, and I should be doing my physics homework, but here I am, taking posting quizzes. Heh.


You scored as Hermione Granger. Your alter ego is Hermionie Granger. Your one intelligent witch, but you have a hard time believing it and require constant reassurance. You are a very supportive friend who would do anything and everything to help her friends out.

Nostalgia

Jan. 12th, 2005 09:20 pm
I have decided today that the person I am going to miss the most, who I have talked to the least, next year, is Steve Shortle.

Today we had to actually use our calc book in class, and he didn't have his. Mr. Sinclair told him to share.

So Steve pushed his desk back until it was between Meg's and Amanda's desks, and put his arms out, and glanced at the two girls suspiciously like he owned their books.

He was Steve the book pimp.

Now, on to quotes. Sarah, Heather, and Becky identified the movie, but I am awarding credit to Janeea and Kim too for the random trivia. My prize for you all is something you probably already know, but I am running out of prize ideas...er...going to do it anyway. The male gargoyles are named Victor and Hugo, after the author of the original story. So there you go.

The next quote is: "Do godmothers, get stretchmarks?" (I will be very proud of you and glad to share my shame with you if you have seen/own this movie like I have.)

And yes, that random comma is supposed to be there.
So yeah well this semester is off to a good start. I don't have any homework other than physics, and I get to go home every other day. Yeah for being a senior!

Also, funny thing to write about again! Yes!

Mrs. Alonso gave Ari a Spanish SAT II book "to have and to hold" and then Ari goes "Till death do us part!"

Then in physics Mr. Welch was trying to explain...umm...well I wasn't paying attention to what principle it was, it might have been Bernoulli's...ANYWAYS he was tryong to illustrate a princlple.

Mr. Welch: When you have a garden hose, and you don't have a nozzle you put your thumb over the spout, and what happens?
Steve: Your thumb gets cold. (I love Steve)

And now, the movie. The answer to the last quote was Finding Neverland. Bart and Jean got it right. For a prize, they get this link to a biographical site about J. M. Barrie. http://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/jmbarrie.htm

The next quote is "The flower that blooms in adversity, is the most rare and beautiful of all."

Nothing

Jan. 9th, 2005 01:00 pm
Hey can someone let me know if we have band on odd or even days, and then I can figure out if I need to bring my clarinet to school tomorrow or not?

I start Band! I am so excited!

Of course I also have to start gym...And frankly I would rather go back to English class than go to gym. That should tell you something. I hear Mrs. Frost is as crazy as they come, so really I have only traded one psycho woman for another.

Oh well.

At least it is only for a quarter.

Now, on to the movie. Bart, Kelli, Emalee, and Steph are all correct. It was Chicken Run. And Em, that thing about Heather being the knitting chicken is really really really funny. By the way, the knitting chicken is named Babs, and she was indeed the speaker in the quote.

For a prize, you all get to know that the voice of one of the rats in Chicken Run also played Peter Pettigrew in The Prisnor of Azkaban movie, who we all know can turn into a rat.

Here is the next quote: "You have to forgive them for being late. It's a long walk from the orphanage. Short legs."
