I am now on vacation, thank cats. And I am blogging from home, rather than French, so this is all good and all novel and whatnot.
Yesterday (that being Thursday) we had a Mock Trial against Lynnfield. We won. Oh yes, we did. It was lovely. 71-80. We had a fair judge, and we went up against a pretty competitive team, and we came out the victors. I love it when that happens. Plus, I didn't have to rip anyone apart with my excessive vengeful tendencies and riteous wrath. These things I use when people aren't trying. Most everyone seemed to be trying at this trial, so they are safe for now. If I find out otherwise, damages will be incurred.
you can feel science
I also found out yesterday that I am going to college. Hooray! Purr! Etc! I am so happy. Now it doesn't even really matter if I get in anywhere else (although I certainly wouldn't mind having options). And this was such a pleasant surprise, because I wasn't expecting to hear from anyone until around April. Joy incarnate.
Leslie is coming this vacation. Hopefully fun things will be done and good times will be had.
This vacation I need to a) work on the Book of Time (I am its keeper), b) clean my filth-ridden room, c) read some heinously boring book for english, d) finish that painting that has been sitting in my basement forever and a day, and e) work on the mural, which we haven't worked on in millenia. Sigh. I also need to go *shudder* shopping. So much to do, so little time in which to do it and still get enough sleep.
Today is Valentine's Day. This is the day when they decapitated St. Valentin for advocating marriage among soldiers, when the emperor wanted his soldiers to be unmarried. So we celebrate a rancorous beheading with candy and flowers. I find it somewhat inappropriate, but that doesn't mean I'll turn down the aforementioned candy.
Well. I was getting a bit tired, but now I am awake again. We shall see just how far this will carry me before vital neurons begin to fizzle.
If you would like to learn about fungi (and really, who doesn't?), I suggest that you look here. It's good stuff.
Today in Marblehead we saw a cat. He was very big and fat and orange. I liked him. Jess and Liz thought that he had rabies, but he obviously didn't. He was very sweet. The world needs more cats.
Speaking of the world.
Today the world was so beautiful it could have been eaten by a segmented worm.
i didn't see the car
Many things are random, yet amusing. And people need to learn how to mind their very own businesses, and let everyone else run their own personal businesses by their blissful lonesome. This I do declare.
By the by, I have recently learned that it is an Ibizan DOG, not an Ibizan Hound. Sorry. I was mistaken. Mistooken. All of those things.
My cat just got her wire whisk toy stuck on her tail. She spun round and round trying to get it off. Then it flew off due to the opposing forces at work in centripedal force. Or something. Anyways, it came off, and she attacked it, and it was funny.
Must. Clean. Room. But. Room. Is. So. Dirty. So. Hard. To. Begin.
Why would you ever be trashed online?
Please, I beg of you, do not bring up the coffee incident again. I do not need to hear of it again. Yes, it is funny. But I remember it, yes, I surely do. I do not need it quoted at me. I am ALL SET.
I don't think Heath Ledger can really sing. I don't think that was him singing in 10 Things I Hate About You. That movie is so much better now that I read the book. There are so many more jokes in it that I just didn't pick up on before.
Blank DVDs are a lot more expensive than blank CDs. Especially if you wish to purchase a large-ish number of them. Then they begin to wander into the upper range of pricey.
i'll kill you with my knife!
Oh man. That Hero song in Vermont... with her sister at the sound system... it is just too horrible to be conceived, unless you were there, in which case you rightly share my horror.
Farscape was on tonight. I like it. So take that.
I got pictures back from the Mock Trial already. Only one roll, I took practically two. But the ones I have developed are glorious. We have such a great team. After Lynnfield and the judge had left, we were sitting around waiting for our bus to show up. So, of course, we tore up the courtroom. I have pictures of people sitting in the judge's chair, playing with the gavel, sitting on the tables, etc. Shhh, we're a good bunch of kids.
Oh man, and there was this enormous painting on the wall of this woman... she looked something like Justice, because she had the scales, but she wasn't blind, so she couldn't be Justice. She also looked something like Liberty, because she had a crown sort of thing going on, but she had the scales, so she couldn't be Liberty. She was lovely. I wish that I did paintings like that.
There were also a number of ink drawings up on the walls. One of them depicted Moses holding up the 10 Commandments, illuminated in the light of the Lord. So much for a separation of Church and State, hmm?
i am the master of evil genius
I am beginning to tire again. My energy levels are rapidly waning. Help me, help, help, I'm drowning.
OK, one more, and then you may go.
everyone else is really boring
