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."
~ Seneca

"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

Cucumber Parakeets
Tuesday, September 12, 2006
Parakeets (aka budgies, budgerigars, etc.) smell like cucumbers taste... at least to me.

I have four of the adorable little birdies. Romeo, who is currently seated on my monitor, is a very fat and fluffy budgie of the green and yellow variety. He's a cutie.

I think it would be cool to teach Romeo to dance. Talking is out of the question, mainly because budgies who talk sound.... weird to me.

Let's see... what could I do over and over again that Romeo would probably copy... I guess I could headbang but that HURTS... I don't actually know how to dance but if I just move a certain way a lot maybe he'll try it...

Here's an... interesting little link for anybody who cares to click it:


For some reason I find it funny when people start randomly dancing.

Pills, pills, more pills, and... applesauce
Tuesday, September 12, 2006
My doctor thinks there's something wrong with me.

So now I have to take some pill thing at 6 AM every morning for the next few weeks.

I am used to getting up at 6:30.

This is going to take a while to get used to...

And yet... for some strange reason.... here I am. Sitting at the computer... at 5:40 AM...

Actually what happened is that I woke up and went to get a drink of water and i saw a light coming from the computer room... so of course I came in and sat down.

FOUR days until my birthday party! How awesome is that! The only bad part is that my parents have not gotten me the camera (yet?). My mom said that they were "thinking" about it. That really means "well there's a tiny chance you'll get it but since it's about $200 and we think that's outrageously expensive compared to the cheap ripoff version of a better camera that we bought {the ripoff, not the better camera}, AND since we're cheapskates a lot of the time when it concerns you.... you probably won't get the camera".

It's amazing what a few days away from Nutang can do to one's popularity points.

Boo Leaders!
Saturday, September 9, 2006
So... today was rather eventful for me. I went to Santana Row with my friend Lena, and we went and bought some junk, looked at some junk, ate some junk... yeah. Good stuff.

And after our shopping excursion we went to watch our highschool play football. You know, there's actually an article in the local paper about how pathetic our team is. They don't actually say "this team is never going to win, it sucks" but they somehow lack optimism. The article discusses the new football coach, and how maybe with luck (or a miracle more likely) my school may win...

Anyway, decided to watch the game only because it was free (students don't have to pay, awesome no?) and because Lena wanted me to stay (she likes this guy on the football team... or should I say several guys?). But it was freezing cold on the bleachers because we were in the freakin' SHADE. And the wind wasn't exactly helping...

Our cheerleaders suck... our team sucks... our football field sucks... (actually we don't even have one... which sucks even more) not much to cheer for. Of course we lost the game. 15 - 0. Terrible isn't it? Not only did the other side win, their audience also got to sit in the sun! Life just isn't fair!

I was booing the whole time. I know, I'm so wonderfully supportive. And the cheerleaders were cheering even when it was obvious we weren't going to win. I think we should have boo leaders. Then at least I'd join in and help some. Hehe...

Something else I found rather funny... the guys who were really enthusiastic... yelling stuff like "YEAH ANTHONY! HURT SOMEONE!" or "GO! GO! WOO HOO!". I think it would be funny if they shouted "GO KICK 'EM IN THE BALLS AND MAKE IT COUNT!". That would be worth going to a game for.

Evil.... Change is imminent
Friday, September 8, 2006
I'm thinking about changing my song. Evil by Interpol is, no doubt about it, a very good song, but it's always good to experience new things.

And I know you'll all miss Evil... (say yes or DIE! Mwahahaha!) well I'll find something good enough to replace it sooner or later.

In other possibly more interesting news, teachers underestimate their students' abilities to write. My french teacher, for instance. We were supposed to print out some stuff directly from the internet (but of course she explained this horribly so most people ended up doing summaries instead) and highlight certain parts. Since her skill in giving directions in english is somewhat limited not everyone did the research printout thing. So she said okay, well the next assignment is to summarize what you researched. And... because some of us did that already (myself included) what are we supposed to do? Summarize our summaries? But besides that... she doesn't believe that a 10th grader can write well. Her view of how we word things is something like

"See the dog run. Haha. The dog is running. That is funny."

Whereas most people I know with any writing potential at all would probably word it as

"As I see the (insert breed of dog here) running, a smile plays across my face. For some strange reason I find it rather humorous on this particular occasion the way the dog is galloping across the pavement, like a horse almost."

I hate it when the teacher thinks people are plagiarizing and they aren't. It's just so frustrating....

Tomatoes aren't vegetables, okay Bob?
Thursday, September 7, 2006
For anyone who has ever watched Veggie Tales, that christian children's (show?) video.... thing... you know that one of the main characters is Bob the Tomato. Now, this poses a problem. Most people not in the loop of ignorance should know that tomatoes are simply NOT vegetables. So why is Bob on the show? Perhaps the creators were simply too stupid to realize the difference between vegetables and fruits (one generally tastes good, the other most people tend to hate.. etc.) or maybe it was just a bygone era where those shiny round red eatables were accepted in the vegetable community. Now in our time of enlightenment we know, tomatoes really aren't veggies at all. But I suppose we can't really replace old Bob with some new guy... (brussel sprouts! That'll make every kid hate them!) in a world like ours who wants an out of work virtual tomato? Well... the only solution seems to be to let Bob stay. And forevermore teach young children incorrect facts about the world of food.

For anybody too lazy to read big paragraphs here's a nice little video for you instead. CAUTION: SOME SWEARING... SORT OF.

*Giggle* OOOOH He's SOOO Strong!
Wednesday, September 6, 2006
Ah, weight training. Pushing yourself to exhaustion to perhaps one day turn your body of Jell-o into something beefier. And all while sweating out enough liquids to save a small third world country from dying of thirst. Though I doubt they'd want to drink sweat...

One of the fun things about being a girl in a weight training class is that they don't expect you to do as much. Therefore you can go do your little one minute exercises and use the rest of the time to stand near very capable boys with a friend, point at the straining guy lifting the weights, and say "oooh he's soooo strong! Look at how much weight he's lifiting! Ooooooh!". Sometimes you can get a good reaction. Like the guy will suddenly lift even MORE weight as to say "that's nothing! I'm even stronger than you think!" Unless he gets hurt it's somewhat entertaining to know that as a girl you are attractive even when tired, sweaty, and unkempt, to get a guy to show off for you. At least I find it entertaining. But you know there really isn't that much else to do in that class. Once you've used up all your strength.... can't really do any weight training.

Anyway, my birthday is in 14 days. Can you believe it??? And since the party will be 4 days before my actual birthday, 10 days until I get my digicam!!! (If I do in fact get it, and I hope I do). Ah what a great day that will be.

Twas the night before Monday...
Sunday, September 3, 2006
Well actually it was the afternoon but saying night makes it sound better.

I saw the most beautiful digicam... at TARGET of all places. I usually think of Target as just another one of your average department stores, filled with screaming little kids, old people, and copied fashions.

Well anyway... it was red, which I personally don't like, but the camera itself was great. It had everything I wanted.And the best part is, it's about $200 less than the other one I wanted. Great eh? Now, if only it comes in black...

Sadly, I did not get this lovely piece of technology. Instead, I jotted down some notes about it in my mom's Palm and went off to look at some Halloween costumes in a nearby Party City. And they didn't even HAVE any costumes. It was just some clearance stuff from last year. The good stuff that makes your little siblings/relatives scream in terror was hidden away in a mass of boxes that had yet to be unpacked. Tragic, I know.

I have decided that rock climbing is the way to go for my birthday. Though expensive, it should be a rewarding experience. Losing calories is always a plus, especially so since birthday food tends to be very fattening. But besides that, it's fun to race up and then pretend to fall off (goodbye world!), after which you plummet down at the breathtaking speed of 1 mph. It might even be 1/2 mph, who knows?

Too bad it's a rather costly activity.

Birthday (w00t or shoot?)
Friday, September 1, 2006
Weeeeeeellll my birthday's on the 20th. I'm going to be 15....

Most teenagers would probably ecstatic about their birthday (unless of course, they got used underwear or something else horrible as presents). I, personally, do not find the concept of getting older something that should be celebrated (I'm only in it for the LOOT!). Another year, another cycle of emotions...

Right then. Onwards with the post writing!

All I seem to want this year are giftcards... okay not actually giftcards, but if I tell my friends to get me specific things, chances are that I will get at least one duplicate present. And nobody wants that.

On my other site I was trying not to sound greedy or expectant about birthday gifts, but it's harder than I thought it would be. I wanted to say something like

"well this is what I'm willing to accept this year: .... stuff, etc."

but that sounds.... bad. So I said something more like

"I know this may be kind of like, greedy or expectant or something, but in the past people have had some trouble getting me birthday presents (the parakeet stuff was great... except that I'm not a parakeet, but thank you so much to everybody who got me parakeet toys) so I thought that this year I'd just post a list of gifts that I'd really appreciate (I mean, if you got me something I would absolutely hate, i.e. a skirt, I would say thank you very much, I love it, but later I'd regift it.)

Don't get me wrong, you don't have to get me anything. It's really the thought that counts (I know I say I'm only in it for the loot but you gotta understand, I'm only kidding).

B-Day Wishlist:

Barnes & Noble Giftcards (I get these every year anyway, but it doesn't hurt to list it)
Music giftcards (like for Wherehouse.com or Tower Records etc.)

And... my, what a short list that was. Well those are just suggestions anyway.

The real idea of a birthday party is that you have a good time with friends and a memorable experience to cherish and blah blah blah you get the point. Anyway, hope it turns out well."

And actually that probably wasn't much better. Oh well.
