Who here has heard of Yuwie? It advertises as "The first social network that pays its users."
You guys catch that? Their whole pitch is about how you get paid for each referral. And they act as if it's a revolutionary new idea. The referral system itself sounds like it'd pay better than ours at Nutang, but I checked a few profiles, and there is NO activity. People are joining because they think that just sitting there is enough. I bet the people there don't interact at all! It's like a sick mirror of Nutang. And I bet Nutang was here first anyway. Dave's gotta see this.
On Saturday I went to Scarowinds with Kyle, Will, Kayla, Ryan, and Katherine. It was fantastic. Usually, Carowinds is a waste of money and not especially fun anyway. But when they open the Halloween park at night, well, it's better. There are several "mazes", each with a different theme. And real people. The guys who work there really get into spirit. Some of them wear knee pads, so they can get a running start and slide at you. It scares the living crap out of some people.
I'm proud to say I only flinched once the whole night, and it was only a facial movement. There was a hallway with a bright light at the end, the glare was blinding. So I almost ran into the guy dressed as a corpse that jumped at me. Also, in Vampire Woods there was a lady on a table with her eyes closed. I guess most people assume that she wasn't real, but we knew better. I sneaked up on her and got behind her head just as she opened her eyes and hissed at my friends. I danced around behind her until everyone started laughing, and then I walked away. I wonder if she ever noticed me.
I was disappointed on only three accounts. The fog machines were using some sort of chemical smog that left me coughing all night. The turkey leg I bought for 8 bucks wasn't that great. And I had to leave before we could get on the Top Gun roller coaster. But it was great.
Sunday was spent sleeping, mostly. I usually stay away from medication, but I took an allergy pill for the smog because I couldn't stop coughing. So, I slept until noon the next day. Not bad.
I went to Sarah Auvil's party at 1:30 and watched Howl's Moving Castle. It wasn't half bad. Corny as anything, but still pretty cool. Then I went to Youth Group and pretty much did a project for line art. I had to write a paper to go with it, which spurred the AIM conversation below. I had some fun with the paper itself, which is in my writing section. When I make that a link, it means I've added a picture of the art itself. It isn't GREAT, but I like the way it looks.
I spontaneously started asking people a question after school today. Not including "Boxers or briefs?" I had a sudden thought, and decided to test it. And the answers were unanimous.
"Do I need a theme song?"
"Holy cow, you DO!"
You know you have it good when everyone you know thinks you need a theme song.
Check it out. I had no idea the time zones were so random. Especially -5, around South America. It practically disappears.

Romanticocabrita (2:07:00 AM): Name it Hilary for the presidential election.
Romanticocabrita (2:07:11 AM): It'll make a pollitical statement.
Romanticocabrita (2:07:25 AM): Hilary Clinton is a nonagon.
wiseguysupreme4 (2:07:28 AM): That Hilary Clinton is a nine-sided regular polygon?
Romanticocabrita (2:07:36 AM): Yes.
wiseguysupreme4 (2:07:42 AM): With 140 degree interior angles?

I'll post more about my weekend at a less sleepy time.

Wow, I was on a posting spree...How unlike me.
I found out yesterday that I can plug my MP3 player directly into the XBox 360. And replace the music and dialog on HALO 3 with music from Saw 3. Which tickles my fancy. I made up a playlist of songs that just go well with killing things.
Bet you can't guess what it's called.
Took some standardized test in school today. Yesterday was my first time EVER driving home from school. Usually I have to go to swim practice.
Now I have to do grammar homework and hope that I'll do well on the quiz tomorrow. I made an 80 on a major test. It's balanced out by a 96, but only so much.
I wish I could draw well. I can barely manage object sketching, less likely actual stuff. Like hands. Or flowers.
Not that I'd draw flowers. But you get the idea.
