...the best template you've ever seen.

Regionals was good :) I loved coming back to my laptop and seeing the supporter from you 'Tangers on my facebook! My heart was beating unreasonably fast before my freestyle...I was so nervous I think I was starting to lose muscle tone haha. BUT the crowd loved it and I still scored second despite two major misses :) I suddenly feel so much more confident in myself.

On a somewhat more sullen note, a song came onto Pandora today that actually put a little knot in my throat. That never happens. Speaking of music, my new favorite band is Air Traffic. They score huge points for having piano in most of their songs.

My newest favorite thing to hate on are people to broadcast how much they want their lives to be fucked on facebook. "I have to memorize 150 words FML!" "FML psych 101!" Wow if that fucks your life then you are REALLY fucked. Speaking of Facebook, I recently learned how to put people into lists so you can essentially "block" people from chat...ahahah. Oh gosh I'm terrible.

Muffy over and ouuuut!

PS. I realize there are still some bugs with the template. It doesn't function completely in IE (dave needs to update the HTML to include doctypes!!!) and the modules in the readings an profile still need styles. But that comes later.

IN§TA - Is it the end of days? Muffy discusses the controversial subject
Friday. 4.16.10 3:47 pm
As many of you know, between the dates of 4/14/10 and 4/16/10, the Island briefly desynchronized from time and space. After much debate amongst the baboon scientists and the coconut physicists, the catalyst for the chaos was determined to be the initiation of an Infinite Nutang Story Time Anomaly (IN§TA) in the region of the Shoutbox.

Though the exact cause is still uncertain, scientists believe that an IN§TA is triggered by through the execution of simple statement followed by three periods. For safety purposes, the example has been divided into segments:

<INITIAL STATEMENT, USUALLY AN OPENING LINE FOR A STORY>
followed by
<. . .>

The catalyst does not allows guarantee a reaction, however. It requires several other chemical components and executed statements before a full IN§TA takes hold.

A copy of the first ever recorded IN§TA can be seen here:
Official IN§TA 1 documentation

A brief chronology of events that occurred during the loop:
A walrus from the planet Harkusparky is (presumably) assaulted by Cats (who never actually makes an appearance in the loop) from Zero Wing. He blacks out and awakens in a classroom full of half-naked students who were attacked by the police. Both parties are assumed to be high on magic mushrooms. The students escape to a pub and discover MC Hammer and Chuck Norris. Hammer flees down an elevator shaft and awakens Molestaboya, the evil counterpart of Papagoya. After a brief stint with zombies, Molestaboya is transported back in time and to Mars by Abraham Lincoln, who explains that lyndeep and thaitanic, his favorite slaves, are actually clones of his parents. A hairy bully named Al Rammenrun summons the slave / clones to dinner, a feast comprised of peaches, cottage cheese, and goat testicles. The goat testicles come alive and form the image of Silver Dot, forcing Al to set the table on fire.

At this point, the loop is broken by lyndeep, who was still a slave / clone in the alternate universe, to see why her blog was malfunctioning.

Fast acting on the part of the other slave, thaitanic, closes the rift and the IN§TA ends.

New information will be made available as it is uncovered.

--EDIT: New information has been made available. I went to a practice tournament last night and I made my freestyle with one miss. THAT'S IT. My whole damn freestyle, the impossible thing I thought it was. This proves that no matter how tired I feel or how aching my body is, I can still do it. I'm happy :)

MUFFY HAZ FEAR
Wednesday. 4.14.10 6:38 pm

I HAZ FEAR.


I just finished my application to the Informatics program...I wrote a very unconventional, risky personal statement and now I'm forced to live my life in terror till July when I found out if I'm accepted or not.

Of other concern...

The Nutang Shoutbox has recently been overtaken by a strange internet phenomenon that has the resident baboons puzzled. Dubbed INSTA (Infinite Nutang Storytime Anomaly), it threatens to engulf the island in magic mushrooms and MC Hammer's parachute pants much like the song discovered in 1992 with similar properties.

We live in dark times indeed.

In other news, REGIONALS THIS SATURDAY. I've finally started running through my whole freestyle. I feel like dying every single time. But it'll take hard work; one does not simply walk into Mordor. My heart rate has gone down to about 67 BPM, which would make me happy if Lance Armstrong's wasn't 33-34 BPM (). Gaaaaaw! I must construct additional pylons...

So I was going through Facebook and I realized that I can come across as a DICK. I really really enjoy poking fun at people, but sometimes I think my sarcasm goes on so thick that it turns into more of a "stab." Whoops. So sorry if anybody's feelings have been hurt :(

Ok, I've recently become obsessed with internet memes due to what is this i don't even websites. I have 3 mematic phrases embedded in this entry...catch em all!

Muff over and out

PS. Ooooh the UW got a new homepage, if anybody is a nerd and likes to look at web design.

PSS. OOOH MAN I got some peeps coming to my team's community show on the 8th!! I'm stupidly excited to see all my high school chums again...it's been too long. Not gonna lie, I was a little scared because I thought nobody would want to show up, but peeps are surprising me with the support and I LOVE IT. Gotta take those risks....

Muffy speaks of random things
Sunday. 4.11.10 12:57 pm
Faaaaaack.

Why do all of my friends live so far away. I had a talk last night with someone from Michigan, and the night before there was Louisiana, South Carolina, and Nairobi, Kenya. Pretty freaking incredible. Also, all jump ropers. Coincidence? Highly unlikely...

I need to find some peeps HERE that will make this place feel like home. I need to join a club or something...it's just that my practice schedule is always getting in the way. For once in my life I wish jump rope would just move over a little (a LITTLE). I sent in a volunteer application to the American Heart Association and I'm actually nervous..it feels like applying for a job or something.

WOOOOO SALTARE ON THE FINALE!!


The live version had some mistakes (not their fault!) but this is a re-recording that they'll use in future re-runs. It's sooooo cool to see the other crews jumping rope, even if they suck at it haha. But everybody has to start somewhere!

Speaking of jump rope...Europe this summmmmerrrrrr . My coach is officially about to book the flights...it's gonna be tight.

I'm thinking I might get my tattoo over in Germany. That would just be sick. I want to wait at least another six months before I get it because it seems like it's "the trend" right now to get inked up and think you're cool. I know that getting one would actually mean something to me, but I can't help it everytime I see another facebook update.
"I can't believe you got tatted before me man I'm sluffin"
"I'm gettin inked up for sure this time around 3 tats that I no I'm getting I'm pumped"


On a more somber note...someone from my high school passed away last week. We never talked but I knew him "through the grapevine" so-to-speak. I went on his Facebook the other day and just looked at his profile...it just gave me the chills. What's worse is seeing people post stuff on his wall...being the ridiculous person that I am, I started wondering what it would be like if certain people in my life just up and vanished. Can you imagine not being able to talk to that certain someone, not through email, wall posts, or any way? What if they were just...gone? That's scary. Don't let the important people in life leave without you letting them know how much you care.

BLAAAAH sorry for leaving a bad taste in your mouth.

Muffy over and out!

Muffy uses pie to defeat the Kraken
Monday. 4.5.10 10:40 am
I HAVE THE PIE. IN MY FRIDGE. I'M SO EXCITED!!

I'm betting all of you got chump change or bits of candy from the Easter bunny...but I got a whole freaking pie. Be jealous.

Things have really been picking up lately :) I just feel better about myself and the people in my life. My parents have been making me laugh lately...my mom went to pick up my dad the airport last weekend and the two of them asked if my sister and I wanted to meet them at Applebees for a little midnight family gathering. This never happens. Afterwards I'm driving my sister back home and she says "that's weird, I've never laughed with the parentals before." My parents were recently bickering at each other via post-its" on the pantry door. Mehehe...OH and my sister and I will be attending the same school as of next year. OH BOY.

I think it'd be fine, except that she wants to join a sorority. Sometimes I just sit in class and listen to these hoes speak, and it absolutely blows my mind that they are actually in college attending a serious university. They may very well be intellectually intelligent, but they mask it behind this stupid dumb bimbo act and just bitch about gossip, and drama, and peoples' hair dews like rabid like seventh graders.

Heaven forbid should my sister revert to this behavior. I won't allow it. And after going to a frat party and seeing what goes on there...nooooot ok. I mean I was fine with it but I'm not fine with my little sister doing it. That's not hypocrisy, that's me knowing I have my shit together and knowing that she'll do anything to get a good name. Not down with that.

You may be wondering why I have a "Clash of the Titans" poster tacked up in this entry...well, that's because I watched it, and it was a big bust. That's all there really is to it.

I performed my single rope today...and everyone stopped practicing to watch Yes, excuse me for a minute while I bask in my own glory. But seriously though, it feels SO GOOD to have worked SO HARD and to have people appreciate the (almost) finished product!

I have nuttin else to say, except that the NuTang aquarium is a source of amazing power. And wonder. Muffy over and out!

Muffy liiiives!!
Sunday. 4.4.10 1:17 am
Sooo I saw "How to Train Your Dragon"...again...with....MY FAMILY! *dun dun duuuun*

It was so amazing to see it in full quality. I was BLOWN AWAY by the detail in the animation....half the time I would just stare at the characters hair / beards and just gawk at the intricacy of each fiber. Pretty incredible stuff.

Oh, and the movie was great as always.

I was browsing through my old email account and I found this, from four years ago...anyone else remember THE AWESOME NUTANG SUBTITLE MOVIE??? Hahaha oh my god I had totally forgotten...

Soooo...had my first hangover last week. NOT FUN. Probably one of the worst experiences of my life, mostly due to the fact that I HATE feeling nauseous. I went to one of my classes and basically didn't breath for a full hour because I was on the verge of barfing. I texted cha cha "What's the best way to get rid of a hangover." They told me to eat an apple, the lying little bastards....

AAGH damnit, I keep forgetting not to leave Facebook chat up. My new policy of opening up to people has backfired on several occassions...there are certain people who I just don't want to talk to. I mean they're just trying to be nice, but that makes me worry that other people think the same thing of me

Muffy's musings:
  • People get bored easily. It's funny how they have halftime shows for sporting events...it's entertainment for the entertainment.
  • I saw sea gulls fighting in the Quad, and one of them had its beak lodged into the other's neck. Ummm...yeah.
  • A man in the airport was explaining to his kids that they could play "Mario Kart" in the hotel room...except he pronounced it "Mary-O." *barfs*
  • SHOOP DA WHOOP
  • Much of Muffy's musings are apparently not actually musings but explanations of random occurrences.
I put up a total sap entry below if anyone is feeling oddly sentimental. Muffy over and out!

Sunday. 4.4.10 1:23 am
I'm baaaack :) And here's what it took:
  • I came to terms with myself. I'm not the smartest. I'm not the funniest. I'm not the best looking. I'm not..."cool." And I can't pretend like that doesn't bother me sometimes, but that's the key. Sometimes. The times when I let it. I keep being a dumbass and forgetting that I have friends who love me for not being the smartest, funniest, or best looking.
  • I found new inspiration. And I need to keep finding them.
  • I watched Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers tonight with my mother. I also watched How to Train Your Dragon (again) with my family. I also went to a midnight dinner with my family, because my dad just came back from San Diego. There are two things to take from this: 1.) I love movies. I love imagination. I need to keep imagining things, because it's IDEAS that go beyond what we can explain with human science. It proves to me that there's something bigger than can be described by poking around at a brain. 2.) I love my family. Lately we've been doing a lot of things together, and talking. Not about school or college or success, but just about each other. And laughing. I've never had that before.
  • I visited the other side for a second time. I felt like a failure, and wort of all...alone. I truly believed that I was too tired and too alone to get back on my feet, but it happened anyway. It proved to me that there really is a reason to have faith in the way of the world no matter what.
  • Music.
  • People who surprised me by showing how much they care
  • I slowed down
There are two different levels on which a person should be content. On the first level, a person should never be content. This is with themselves. Being content with yourself means you stop growing, you stagnate, and you continue to enjoy the same patch of grass until the both of you eventually wither away and die. Never be content with yourself. But the second level is one on which you should always be content, and that is with another person. That's what I'm still looking for.

I'm happy again because even though I'm not perfectly content, I'm strong enough to keep pursuing it. And I'm happy again because I feel like I'm so close to being free.

Muffy solves confounding variable for global warming
Thursday. 4.1.10 1:53 pm
As many of you know, I'm currently taking a class on global warming, an on this particular day I stumbled upon something very enlightening...but first, some background.

There are two factors involved with global climate change: one being completely natural and the other anthropological (man made). The first is called "the greenhouse effect," a phenomenon where longwave light radiated by the earth is reflected by gases in the atmosphere so that the planet maintains some heat. This is cycle is naturally occurring and doesn't have a thing to do with humans. HOWEVER, since the industrial revolution, there has been a huge spike in unnatural carbon dioxide emissions, and since carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas (meaning it possesses the right properties to absorb and reflect light radiated from the earth), the greenhouse effect has been exacerbated, creating the effect we know as global warming.

NOW. There is something that scientists have failed to consider, so thankfully dear Muffy is way ahead of the curve. Human respiration is a process that intakes oxygen and emits carbon dioxide as we exhale. As mentioned above, carbon dioxide is an anthropogenic green house contributor, and since there are roughly 6.5 billion carbon dioxide spewing humans on the planet, the grand annual total of our breathing emissions is about 2.6 tons. We can assume that half of that is absorbed by the land and water, so the remaining 1.3 tons makes its way to the atmosphere and continues to aggravate global warming.

Politicans and lawmakers have all (vaguely) looked for ways to eliminate the global warming phenomenon through practical energy solutions but no one has ever thought to address such a critical issue as human respiration. If all the people on the earth stopped exhaling carbon dioxide, the climate change dilemma would eventually be solved.

After class I was lucky enough to be able to randomly encounter a nationally renowned climate scientist who just happened to be standing outside the door with holding a giant sign that said "MUFFY." Here is his educated opinion on my hypothesis:

"Bloody brilliant. You should be admitted to Harvard immediately, and perhaps dilated should follow you there."

I am no doubt destined for fame and many federal grants. So everyone, stop breathing and do your part to save the environment.

Happy April fools, muffy over and out
