A few words
"When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness."
~ D.H. Lawrence
"Is the meaning of life defined by its duration? Or does life have a purpose so large that it doesn't have to be prolonged at any cost to preserve its meaning?"
"Living is not good, but living well. The wise man, therefore, lives as well as he should, not as long as he can... He will always think of life in terms of quality not quantity... Dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ill is... even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be bought at any cost."
"People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world's about to end soon anyway. Those people are looking at life the wrong way. I mean, things don't need to last forever to be perfect."
~ Daydream Nation
"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories-- if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
~ The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes
"The road now stretched across open country, and it occurred to me - not by way of protest, not as a symbol, or anything like that, but merely as a novel experience - that since I had disregarded all laws of humanity, I might as well disregard the rules of traffic. So I crossed to the left side of the highway and checked the feeling, and the feeling was good. It was a pleasant diaphragmal melting, with elements of diffused tactility, all this enhanced by the thought that nothing could be nearer to the elimination of basic physical laws than deliberately driving on the wrong site of the road."
~ Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita
"It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend."
~ William Blake

Passive Aggressive Notes
I've been what?
Thursday, August 28, 2008
This strikes me as quite YouTube-spam-y. Therefore I choose to opt out of... being... tagged...
It was horribly hot outside. Like walking around in a gigantic dryer, to use something I've said before. And we got kicked out of a classroom for being too loud so we couldn't stay away from the heat....
BUT on the bright side, apparently I'm not in AP Stats anymore! The teacher said I wasn't on his attendance so if it turns out they haven't dropped me yet, it's his fault for misleading me. When I found out that I didn't have to be there though, I left quickly. And... walked home in the heat. It felt like triple digits today, it really did. And there was this wind that was occasionally cool but sometimes felt like a hairdryer.
I drew a slug....
I didn't know what to write there though. Perhaps I'll hold another caption contest?
OH YEAH MY POSTERS CAME TODAY! I'm happy with them but sadly I can't show you pictures because camera = still broken.
If I had a first period I would try to go to bed by now
Thursday, August 28, 2008
But I don't so HA.
(I don't know who I'm HA-ing at)
This is a late entry. I had no idea what to write earlier. I thought I was going to draw something. But I guess not. Perhaps tomorrow?
Nobody (except middaymoon) really said anything about the squirrel. :| I think it takes me about half an hour to get the (decent) drawings done. (Well, "done" in the sense that they look nicer than when I start)
I did a collage for Brit Lit that started out good and then fell into disgrace. It looks kind of messy now, not artsy like when there was more space. (Ignore the rhyme...) I think the cut-outs from Office Max ads are what did it. :/
Blergh. [Sounding that out is fun]
My dad was just watching Babylon 5. Another one of those shows I grew up with... Man, I barely even remember most of it. I know that I annoyed my dad by asking why everyone was being so mean to this one character though... she was doing some sort of challenge or something and they were testing her I think... but I kept asking because I didn't understand what was happening and he got kind of mad and scared me.
It was pretty hot today. In the nineties I think. And it was a Spare the Air day but my mom drove us to this faraway Petco anyway... and she said she felt bad and that we shouldn't tell my dad. (Stupid rhyming) We stayed in the nice, air-conditioned building for a while and looked at the hamsters and parakeets and got a new toy for my birds. It's supposed to be a pinata thing that they can destroy. So that's good... they like destroying things...
Kinda dragging this out so it'll end here... Unless I edit it...
Second day of blah
Tuesday, August 26, 2008
I want my camera to be fixed... but I suppose I'll be drawing a lot more pictures until that happens.
(Inspired by ikimashokie's entry in case you didn't realize)
Let's see... today... not super eventful, I talked with Angelica in Weight Training and AJ in Brit Lit, Joanna in Econ and nobody in Physio (we have a seating chart and Alice isn't next to me...).
Stats was kind of awful. We watched something about statistics and Domino's Pizza... and I'm going to drop that class. I have the form and everything, I just need to get it signed.
It was super hot outside today, and I had to walk home in the heat. :/ At least it's cool inside my house.
Not feeling weird like yesterday. My head feels less full. (It sounds weird to say empty, because that always means stupid to people if you say someone's head is empty)
My Economics teacher is reeeeeeeeeeeeally creepy. He NEVER stops smiling. Thankfully I don't have to face him but it freaks me out. Seriously. It's scary. Really, really scary.
Why does everyone think I'm on drugs?

No pictures for a while...

I dropped my camera in the sand at the beach yesterday and it's broken now.... these and some my friend are going to send me are probably the last until we get it fixed.
Budgies just doin' their thing.
The sign says they don't accept couches, so I guess that thing to the left is something else...?
(It was not just a living chair)
Angie came by my house a little before eleven, and we went to the mall. We had some time until Tiffany showed up, so we browsed some shops.
Doesn't that bull costume look like it's screaming?
There's a comic/hobby-ish stuff store, and we went in there. Comic books these days are... strange. There was one called "The Dominatrix" by Gene Simmons, another one called "Suicide Bomber" (she has an amazing power, she can kill you by killing herself! It only works once, but hey, it's effective). Then there was "The Atheist" (What the hell kind of power can he have?)
Around eleven thirty Tiffany showed up, and we went and saw The House Bunny. It wasn't bad, although some of the parts where she gets all "deep" and full of morals are kind of annoying.
My mom picked us up from the mall and sometime afterwards we went to the beach... (my family, Angie went back to the mall)
It was kinda cold there. California beaches always seem to have cold water. At least the ones I've been to. Doesn't matter what the rest of the beach looks like, the water is cold, murky, and has crap floating in it. Maybe it's different in SoCal...
After discovering a shovel or something, my brother set to work on a hole.
(He was pretty close to being done here; everyone is gathered around him)
One of my family friends' friends showed up with his dog, named... TC? (My mom realized it meant Too Cute...)
TC and the one I hate.
School starts tomorrow...
le_battement's reply to Nuttz's entry was kind of mean sounding... (if you don't like a blog you have the choice to ignore it. It's not quite as easy with people)
The short story that was too long for the Shoutbox
Friday, August 22, 2008
After drawing up the dinosaur-of-many-things in GIMP (I basically just use it to draw random crap now because it's got more features than Paint) [refer to previous post for picture], I started a new thing.
This thing was going to be part penguin, part panda, and I was just going to do whatever the hell I felt like after that. (That's how the other one got to be the way it is. Kept adding and adding as I saw fit until it was very random; that stuff doesn't come as a single package)
So I started with a lump that was pointed at the top, gave it a white tummy, and put some ears on it, along with a beak.
Then I realized that I had no idea what the area around a penguin's eyes looks like. So I decided "well, screw it, I'll just put white patches there." And I did.
But then, following some tweaking, it looked horrible. I decided to get rid of the beak and make the white parts the top of a skull-type-thing.
That was the skull bear I had as my avatar for oh, I dunno, a minute? (I added the propeller hat later)
When I contemplated my creation, I realized that there was a slight similarity to other, copyrighted things. For some reason I thought I might be sued, so I made it into a regular bear.
Bears with hats are pretty commonplace nowadays, though.
Oh yeah, also I was wondering what I should do when I hit a hundred dollars. It's not going to happen for a while, but I feel like I should have some vague idea upon which to build...
FUN FACT: During the drawing process my mouse kept shaking so I hit it on the desk several times!
Tiny snails are awesome!

My mom found a baby snail on a flower she got from the farmer's market.
I don't usually name things but I had this strange compulsion to call it Bert because she kept saying "should we let him go?"
Random picture of flowers on the table.
Ucky boonanas. :0
(You're the boonana king!)
Uh.... this is just our front room/my mom's office/the main computer room.
I was going to have you try and guess what's going on in this picture, but then I thought that most people would probably just say "wtf is going on in that picture?" so I decided against it.
For future reference, it's a slightly albino pirate clown matador granny dinosaur who happens to have banana wings and is very rich. Also in case you didn't notice she's saying 'arghenblargh'.
Is it blood or makeup? Nobody knows because she's a dinosaur! :0
Or maybe it's a he. I mean, no boobs... Okay.
Slightly albino pirate clown matador transvestite dinosaur who happens to have banana wings, is very rich, and is saying 'arghenblargh'.
I think that covers it.
"Because plain ol' dinosaurs are boring!"
Added some pictures to my gallery. Nothing I hadn't posted in an entry before though, I think.
I have to make this quick...zors

Welcome to my nightlife...
My desktop picture is fabulous, I know. It never fails to amaze me, too.
(I know the bottom looks messy... it's part newspaper part bedding...)
This is a... tomatillo, I believe. We have a bunch of them in the backyard.
Looks like a balloon, eh?
Can you see the butterflies mating or something?
I saw this when I was walking around.
Sadly the potential profundity was wasted, the arrow pointed to nothing but sidewalk.
The entry below this has another picture... (I have to stop taking those...)
You know the password, I assume?
I am rather tired. Perhaps I should try to sleep my food off... (I ate too much for dinner :/)
...I don't understand how one of my posts in Xanga got 71 views...
My birthday is a month from now. :|
