Oogie is not a word...

...But Boogie is.
(The world according to Firefox.)

Yeah, sorry for no real posts.
Christmas has come and gone! (And I need a new header soon.)

Today I had a date with my friend's girlfriend! (XD Sorry, I just wanted to say that.) It's okay, Zach. No matter how tight Shawn and I get-- I need to stop watching Horton Hears a Who. I'll shut up now.
So yeah, Shawn and I went out to get bubble tea, and then we went to the mall. We got along well, we have a lot in common... There was one thing that we should not have had in common, though... The "I don't know, what do you want to do? You decide!" thing. XD So we ended up just walking around the mall and spending about an hour in the bookstore. (Which I did not mind! I love bookstores.)

So I'm going on my first date soon! :O
It's a blind group date my friend set up. O.o But what I'm really surprised about is that my mom said yes!
Me: So, Angel's mom is letting her go on group dates.
Mom: Yeah, sure, you can do that.
Me: Really?! Okay, so Andrea knows these guys...
Mom: Whoa, whoa! I didn't expect you to call me out on that one!

So that's pretty much all that happened in the past week.

Andrea (Muse) just showed me this video. I love it. *_* If you watch it (and I urge you to do so!), make sure to read the subtitles. It's a pretty song, but the lyrics are what I love.

I saw Avatar last Sunday with my friends (and mom/brother). It is so good! I rate it a 9.7 out of ten. (.3 points off for the generic character positions). The computer graphics were so good, they looked real! And the night-time scenes in the forest were so pretty... (Glow-in-the-dark foliage! I want some!) Plus, I really like the environmentalist overtones. If you're not into that, it's easy to look past. But I really liked it. I think I'm starting to carve out a stereotype for myself. XD
(Is vegetarian-eating/many-ear-piercings/rock-and-folk-music-listening/environmentalist/artist/geek a stereotype? I hope not.)

Tomorrow I'm going to document my day. I'm just going to the dentist, then a little shopping, but I'll try to make it interesting! I plan to blog the photos.

I'll see y'all tomorrow, then!

A Secret-classroom-incest-ful Day!

"Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit..."
"There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain..."

Okay... So school has been awesome in little ways the past few days.

Yesterday I had a ninja moment when I jumped over a cafeteria table. (Technically,I jumped up, my foot landed in the middle of the table, and I jumped the rest of the way, but I still jumped over it!)

Then today I was finally fed up with something that has been bothering me for weeks: every single day on my way back from English class, I see kids turning into this doorway that leads to a hallway. The hall turns, so I can't see into it without walking in, and it has been bugging me! So when I talked to Plushie, I asked him where it lead to. He said, "I don't know, want to check it out?" So we slipped into the hall, and it turns out, there's a classroom at the end! Now I feel like I discovered some deep secret... I mean, why would they put a classroom there? It's just too awesome. There has to be something going on.
(Now I want to know who teaches in that room!)

Well, there is one day left of school until Christmas break, and I found out that my old English teacher has a blog. All in all, a good day. ^_^
(Oh, and we just got a Christmas tree today.)

g h o s t i e

PS. Probably the best thing I heard today: "You mumble and don't listen when people talk to you... You're impossible to have a conversation with!" XD (My friend said that to me.)

Unser Gott ist der awesome Gott!

I'm listening to recorded sermons from War Week. :3 (Donnie McClurkin was SO good!) It's so much fun to listen to those, because at some points I can think, "Hey! At that moment I was jumping up and down and clapping my hands!" (laugh)

I love Modern English Classics class. Our group read two acts of Hamlet, then just fooled around for the rest of the hour. We convinced Garrett that he had something really nasty on the back of his shirt! He signed a pass to go to the bathroom to check it out, and when he came back, he said, "I was in there, doing this..." (He turns around and cranes his neck, as if he's looking at his back through a mirror) "...And Mr. Hager walked in."

Substitute teacher: "Okay, who threw the paper plane?!"
Classmate: "Matt's licking it!"
Matt: (Moves paper plane away from his mouth (he wasn't actually licking it)) "What?"
Different classmate: "...Our class president! XD"

Matt had to leave the class for a few minutes to pick something up. When he came back, he was carrying this big plastic back. "They gave me THIS bag..." (Pulls out graduation tassels) "For these!"

On my way to Modern English Classics, Rachel stopped me in the hall. "Want some entertainment in your mouth?" she asked, and pulled out pop rocks. Heck yeah!

So... Moral of this post: School isn't all bad!

There's a Quarter in My Shoe! ^_^

Emily gave me her Facebook password to scan and upload some of her drawings on her page.
(cough) Does anyone else think it was a bad idea to give me her password?
Well, I certainly do.
I uploaded the pictures as she asked, then changed some of her info, had her join the group, "I like picking my nose," sent a person or two a message, perhaps engaged in a very short instant message conversation with her uncle.....
Yeah, she was pissed.
She tried to hide it, but I could tell. :D She couldn't seem to fathom why I would do such a thing! People just don't give me enough credit.

In other news, we got out of school 15 minutes early cuz of the roads (they're even worse than they were yesterday, and we got YESTERDAY off!).
...I'm still trying to figure out how Anna knows where I live. >.> Did she use to ride my bus? How does everyone know where I live, but I don't know where anybody else lives?!

My camera should come in tomorrow!!!

Heheh. Yesterday teh Fetus IMed me with the text from this:

Let's not go to Camelot... 'Tis a silly place.

Today my older brother walked into my room wearing an apron and said." I don't know why these went out of style in the female community, they are very sliming." And then went to admire himself in the bathroom mirror. MLIA

It's a snow day... Guess Kadwell (who was 100% certain that we would not have a snow day this week) was wrong! Can't wait to see his reaction when we go back to school. :DD

My mother peeked into my room really early this morning and told me we didn't have school. After I got up to turn off my alarm, I couldn't fall back asleep! My mind was occupied with Ouran and what I would do with this vacation. (I think I'm gonna bake!!!)
Omg, Looney Toons on Cartoon Network! :DD ("Yes, I'm really the last of the Dodos!")

Here's the snowman I just made:

As you can see, the eyes are lemons. And...
It's a nekomimi snowman! XD
...Come on, you had to have expected that from me!

'Tis the Season

This is now my official "Christmas layout."
I used it last year, and dangnabit, I am using it again!

I finally started on my Christmas list (my mum has been bugging me about it). Pretty much, it has accessories for the Holga camera I'm buying (colour filters), and a looot of anime stuff. :D
I think my chances of getting manga or anime on DVD are greater if it is almost the only thing I put on the list. XP

I hope Angel can come over this weekend~.
I have been spending a lot of time with her recently! :O With BPA and her being my only friend in my lunch ('Cept Plushie! But he wasn't at lunch today!), aaaand the amazing Skillet concert, I've been seeing her more than ever!

Well, I'm really getting into an anime mood, so I'm going to go watch Loveless. ^___^

Next week we're going to have to write short autobiographies in Creative Writing. :/ I was a bit worried, with no idea what I would write about, then Nellie asked me to explain to her why I hate the post office so much. XD She said my autobiography would be more interesting than hers, but I disagree! I think she's much more creative than I am... *cough* Nellie comes up with all these interesting names for people whose real names she doesn't know (I forgot examples, though). Me? I can't tell you how many people I have dubbed "Blondie." Seriously. Then there's "Girl who dyed her hair red," "Person-who-I-think-name-is-Katie-but-I'm-not-sure," and "Guy-whose-bangs-completely-cover-his-eyes." XDD (He did cut his bangs, though. Maybe Angel's mum passed by him on the street and snipped 'em off for him. I could totally see that. XD)

We (Nellie and I... You're mentioned in this post so much!) did a p-chat last night, and it's so much fun! I've only done it one other time, with someone I'm somewhat friends with on deviantART. I wish more of my friends had tablets. v.v

I'm getting into Ouran High School Host Club for the millionth time. You see, I read or watch it for awhile, then my interests steer away. Inevitably, though, I will go back to it, re-read the three manga volumes I have, watch a few episodes of the anime online... If you listen closely, you may be able to hear a faint "SQUEE!" coming from the computer room during a few shounen-ai moments.

I wanted to put AFI's Love Like Winter video on this post, but embedding is disabled. :( You can click here to see it, though. It's beautiful!

Wer bin ich?

Yesterday a speaker came to our school to preach 'abstinence' to us.
I roll my eyes and wish I was somewhere else 'cuz I've heard this speech many, many times:
1) My mother
2) Summer camp
3) Silver Ring Thing (*cough* My hands get dry in the winter.)
4) SWARM (youth group)
5) Yesterday

Afterwards Plushie gave me a random high-five. XD

Then when I got home, Fetus IMed me, calling me 'PUNK.' (I guess he was mad that I didn't give him any sea-salt ice cream, like I did Plushie. XD)

I want a Holga camera... I mean, look at this art!

That's all for now, folks!

Censorship, and Why I Hate It.

Our school library removed all of the Stephen King books.
All of them.
They're censoring our library.

Apparently some parents complained of these books. I don't know a whole lot, just what my English teacher told us, but I'm glad that she did tell us.

I was really mad when I heard about this. We deserve to choose the books we read! If somebody's parents (or somebody) finds any book inappropriate, then they don't have to read them. But don't make everyone else suffer! Don't tell us what we can and can't read!

I told a friend about this censorship going on, and her response was, "I'm not surprised." Then changed the subject.
Am I the only one who's infuriated by this? How can anybody be okay with this? When I told my father about what my English teacher told us, and he couldn't believe it. "But it's Stephen King... It's not like it's even Anne Rice or anything!" And every few minutes of silence (we were in the car) he would express his disbelief again...
I suppose that I could see their reasons if they removed Anne Rice's books, but I would NOT be okay with it.

It makes me think of an episode of Kino no Tabi-- my favourite, in fact. In short, Kino (the main character, a traveler) visited a country of books. She was told that she could trade in a book at their huge library for any book she wished! How wonderful! Yet, when she arrived there, the library was full of resource books: encyclopaedias, medical books, textbooks... When she asked the librarian where all the storybooks were, she was told that all books have to go through the "critics." Any book that they disapproved of never reached the public.

The censorship at my school is not nearly this bad-- but it has the same effects. We are not "allowed" certain books, because a group of people believe we should not read them.

And it pisses. Me. Off.

I feel like I should do something about this-- but what? I'm not really a take-charge person. A follower, not a leader, right? Writing this post has let out a little steam, but I'm not nearly satisfied. I don't want to be all talk, but I honestly have no idea what I should do. Maybe if I can get more people on my side, we can do something about this. Or not... Honestly, I have no idea. At all.

All I know is this: censorship is wrong.
