Wait, did I already say that?

It's a word I like because I like what it describes. I like bad-assery. I like grand battles between good and evil. I like raging guitar riffs against thumping bass drums. I REALLY like the philly cheese steak sandwich at my school, when they serve it.
I make sure to growl through every bite, and smile stupidly while I chew each mouthful.
OK, so, today Liza party-fouled to a great extent. To understand the story completely, one has to realize that lunch at my table is an epic lunch. There is always laughter. Always shenanigans. Always food passed around. Bottles being pushed over. Terrible accents. Exploding milk cartons. Cookies. The Man Wall (and the Hinge).
This table be round.
The table is also full; we used to have some empty seats that were filled by the casual passerby, but recently two guests became more permanent residents. Clint and Jonas. They've been sitting with us regularly for quite a while, it seems. And now there are no empty seats.
And you know what Liza did?
PREPARE FOR TENSE SHIFT!
I get to the table right after her, and she tells me, "Katie and -mumble mumble- are gonna sit with us today because they're having exams."
I took a trip to the snack room, (there's a story behind this, too,) and when I sat down, I filled the only empty seat. Katie and Mr. Mumbles, who is apparently a foreigner and is hereby excused for his shyness, were sitting in the two seats for Clint and Jonas.
Of course, when Clint and Jonas came around, looking terribly confused, I was the one who told them the deal. Liza didn't say squat.
I had to send my friends away! :(
The worst part is that the newcomers did NOT add to the table livery at all. In fact, nobody said anything for most of lunch today. Nobody even looked up. It was awkward, even though Katie knew nearly everyone (not me) enough to be comfortable chatting. Liza, again, said nothing.
I was upset.
But not for long, because eventually conversation DID break out, and Mr. Mumbles said something incomprehensible, (but he SAID something!) and it became tolerable.
Plus Anthony introduced me to this great board game called Catan.
Hmm. Now I have an epic amount of English work to do.

So, last night, I could hardly get to sleep. Even after beating the shit out of my poor pillow.
And you know what?!
I slept a lot in school today. Hahaha. The first two blocks are the only times I actually do anything in class anymore, so after a strange lunch, I slept on the floor for an hour in math, and then on a lab table for another hour and a half in Physics.
For pillows, I used my bookbag and a girl's long sleeve shirt balled up on top of a water faucet, respectively. Surprisingly, my neck is still hurting.
Today there was no practice, due to thunder stormin', so for a while the team sat in a circle talking with the coach. Ryan chose this time to rip a fart loud enough for everyone to hear. I mean everyone. I haven't been that unfortunate in years.
Everyone's been farting today. Sheesh.
Lunch was strange because-
I GOT TO RIDE IN THE RED RAVER TO THE POOL AND BACK!
-because I missed my chance to get at the front of the line (I usually get there super early), so I bought my customary cookies from another vendor, and got my lunch after the line had gone down. So, essentially, I ate it backwards.
Wait, don't I usually eat the cookies first, anyway? I guess you wouldn't know.
But the weird part is that, even though it was a fair sized bit of food and all I did was sleep after, by the time I got home after school I was starved again. No fair.
My dog's getting old. >.>
The Red Raver is Ryan's new car. (Haha, Ryan's Red Raver. Alliteration.) It's red and good for raving in. Hence the name.

I got baked. It was hot.
PS Does anyone else know about the Pirate language on facebook? It's perhaps the most hysterical thing ever. Seriously, they changed every little detail to be in pirate speak. It's fantastic.
Just one more year.

Please, let me get through another school year. Then it won't matter. I'll be off to college, where I won't know anybody and nobody will know me. In some aspects, I want to start over. It's the perfect place and time. But in other respects, I will not change if I can help it. I'll still be me. I want to keep in touch with all the great people who've made me who I am. There are some great influences I've had and continue to have. My lunch table compadres. Most of my youth group. The guys from Movie Night. My friends I met at Clemson.
The list goes on, but I shan't go with it. The point is, I'm going to miss them.
Lateralus - Tool. A long song, and terribly boring for most people. This was my first taste of what I call "epic music" (of course). That is, songs that ask questions, are philosophical in nature, invoke images involving the subconscious, etc. Also, they tend to rely more on the actual instrumentation than on the lyrics themselves. From listening to epic music I've acquired a taste for good instrumentation, leading me to such bands as Dream Theater, and similar bands in the Symphonic Metal genre such as Kamelot or even Nightwish.
But this is my first. Even though it is not my favorite, it really holds a special place in my heart. Even if I don't always want to listen to it, I love this song. Shannon's the one who showed it to me. In fact, Shannon introduced me to a lot of music, even if I didn't like most of it. :3
I posted the lyrics, actually. It was a while ago, but I dug up the link for you guys. :D
