tom collins
Hello all. I haven't checked my friends page in ages, so sorry if anyone said something that was meant for me because I definitely missed it. I've been soooo busy lately what with school and social-ness and stuff taking up all of my time. I have two words for you: science fair. Okay, and a few more: is terrible.

In other news, guess what I did this morning. I GOT MY DRIVERS (driver's?) LICENSE, THAT'S WHAT!!! I almost hit a cone in maneuverability, but I didn't, and I passed! Last night I was scared to death and literally more nervous than I think I've ever been in my life. But it's all over now, and I HAVE A LICENSE!!

killed the car
Just some random memes from scsquidsnaps. Not that I care about these questions, I just don't want to work on my religion semester project right now and the episode of The Office that I'm downloading is only at 70%.

See, now I'm ready to move on and actually work. Thank you, memes!
14th-Dec-2007 10:42 pm - Friday night thoughts
 I'm super bored, so you guys get these:

So, anyway, I have definitively decided once and for all that my mother is not a good person. We were watching last night's CI together (which was weird because she hates CI, a fact that adds to her bad person-ness ;]) and she said the most revolting thing. When they arrested the ghetto gangster guy who killed the three people in the park, she said (not an exact quote, but almost), "They should kill him, not arrest him. Why clog up the jails? They could just shoot him a few times and pretend it was an accident." At first I thought that she was just making a very tasteless joke, but no, she was 100% completely serious. She seriously thinks that we should just execute people without the benefit of a trial or legal representation or any of that annoying "human rights" stuff, not to mention totally disregarding the entire Constitution. She said something else about some murder case where a man was sentenced to lethal injection for killing a child, and he appealed on the grounds that it was cruel and unusual punishment. She said that it doesn't matter what they do to him, no matter how brutal or inhumane or just horrific it may be, because he killed someone else and inflicted his own "cruel and unusual punishment" on another person. Now, keep in mind that I am entirely pro-life in every sense, so I asked her how she could possibly justify the death penalty and using cruel and unusual punishment when it is specifically mentioned in the Constitution as illegal and unconstitutional. She didn't really give me an answer, which I sort of expected. How can anyone justify killing people in order to show people not to kill? Why should the state be above the laws that it has created? No murder means no murder, bottom line, whether it be Mother Theresa or Ted Bundy that is being killed.

Sorry to get political and long-winded on you all. It's Friday night and I'm bored and alone, so I need someone to blow off steam to.

real estate
Man, I haven't done a mondaysabitch meme in forever. But this particular Monday is not, in fact, a bitch, because school was cancelled because of the ice storms! Yay!

Plus One

1. If you had to add a thirteenth month to the year what would you name it?
Smarch. (If you get that, you rock.)
2. In your opinion, what should the Eighth Deadly Sin be? Ignorance
3. If you were magically transformed into Snow White's Eighth Dwarf, what would your name be? Smarty, because I freely admit that I am kind of a know-it-all
4. If you could add an Eleventh Commandment to the Christian bible, what would it be? Thou shalt not misuse apostrophes. (my pet peeve)
5. If you were to become the sixth Spice Girl, you would call yourself _______ Spice. Foxxxy Spice with three X's (don't ask, it's an inside joke between me and my friend Matt)

You know that feeling when you first discover a new show, and you really, really love it, and you surf the internet looking for places to illegally download episodes so you can watch it more? I have that right now with The Office. I was bored one day and I stumbled across some clips on YouTube (greatest site EVER) and fell in love with the show. It basically sums up my sense of humor, with its mix of sarcasm, wit, and hints of British humor and a teeny, tiny bit of slapstick. Oh, and I want to marry someone like Jim Halpert. Not John Krasinski, Jim Halpert. I'll add him to the list of TV men that I adore, along with Jack McCoy, Ed Green, Shawn Spencer, and Bobby Goren, although seasons 6 and 7 of CI have put him on the bubble of the list.

I have to stop falling in love with TV characters. X)

I'm back from the (metaphorical) dead! Now that NaNoWriMo is over, I have my life back! For the most part. I still have a chemistry paper to write and a math project to work on, but I wanted to stop in briefly and say hi to all of you lovely people on my flist who I haven't been able to talk to much lately. But November is over now, and I did actually win NaNoWriMo (*squee*! First 50k words of my novel!), so you'll be seeing more of me in the days to come than you did in November.

That's all I have to say about that. (Sorry, Forrest Gump moment.)

Oh, wait, I just remembered the other thing that I was going to talk about. Did any of you guys ever see the movie Apollo 13? If you did, do you remember Gene Krantz, played by Ed Harris, who was director of Mission Control? Well, guess what? He's coming to my school on Thursday. Gene Krantz, that is, not Ed Harris. He (Gene) is actually a graduate of good ol' CCHS. He just got this special award from NASA that only like two other civilians have won. He's receiving a moon rock that he can house anywhere he wants, and he chose CCHS. All of the other people who have won have picked places like universities and museums, but he picked his high school. We'll be the only high school in the entire country with a moon rock in it, which I think is pretty cool. So, we're having this assembly/ceremony thing that he's coming to CCHS for so he can help dedicate the moon rock exhibit in our library. If I was a science geek, I would be dying of joy. But I'm not, so oh well. Although I do still think the whole thing is pretty cool.
17th-Nov-2007 02:17 pm - tales from nanowrimo
bran muffin
So, I was up really late last night (like, 2 AM) writing my novel for NaNoWriMo. I was so tired that I was literally almost falling asleep as I was typing.

I went back today and re-opened the document to keep writing, and DAMN. I should NOT write when I'm that tired. I re-read what I wrote, and I was obviously not thinking clearly. To be perfectly frank, it sucks. And some of it doesn't really make sense in the context of the story either. But I guess that's what I get for waiting until the wee hours of the morning to fill my 1667 word quota for the day.
15th-Nov-2007 10:40 pm - ACT + CI = love <3
So, I think I posted here that took the ACT in October. And I thought that I did pretty well. Well, as of yesterday, the results were posted online on the ACT website.

And guess what?

I GOT A 34!!!!!

I was soooo happy when I saw that. I kicked the shit out that test! Word got around among the other juniors about my score, and so far the general consensus is that I'm "beastly", which is pretty sweet, if I do say so myself. Although of course someone called me "disgusting", but they were just kidding. Teenage sarcasm. Gotta love it. :)

Okay, gotta go now. It's time for the big "Bobby exposes how and why everything happened" scene at the end of the new CI episode.
3rd-Nov-2007 03:09 pm - writing is good for the soul
not solving crime
So, I am officially three days into NaNoWriMo and things are going surprisingly well. So far I've met my 1667 word count per day, which, as soon as I finish today's chunk, will leave me with at least 5001 words. Just think, by the end of the day, I will be 1/10 finished with my very first novel! *squee* This is exciting. NaNoWriMo is just the motivation I needed to finally get off my ass and start writing.

Just for all you special people out there in flist land, here's an advance look into what I'm going to be writing. (If by some miracle of divine will this ever actually gets published, you'll all be able to say that you read it before anyone else in the world.) So far I've been basically just winging it and writing the plot as it comes into my head. I have no idea how it's going to end, and I kind of like that.

So, you shall all hear very little of me until December. I'll be too busy handling the combined pressures of honors classes, social stuff, and 1667 words per day. Wish me luck! ;)

So, I took the ACT for the first time this morning. I think I did pretty well. I'm an honors student, so I'm hoping to get at least a 30. I think I probably got around a 32. I'll let you know when I get my results back in 3-7 weeks. ;)

Ah, so many memes. And they're all snagged from scsquidsnaps


1. Put player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question.

A) Bold the names of guys you'd definitely shag.
B) Possibly shag after a little persuasion, put in italics.
C) Leave the ones you don't know of or wouldn't want to shag alone.
D) Strike the ones you wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.

Note: I decided years ago that I would stay a virgin until I got married, so technically I wouldn't shag any of them. But for the purposes of the meme, I'll pretend that I would. 0:-) <-me with my Catholic halo (jk)
P.S. Mmmm, Jesse...*drool*...

So, I totally forgot that there was a new CI on last night. I was getting my stuff together for school when I looked at the clock and saw it was 10:22. I was like, "There was something I...aw, crap!"

I hate that feeling. >:o
