I found last year's Scavenger Hunt List. It's a bit shorter...

250 points - Picture of group next to a body of water

1000 points - Picture of four-level pyramid (at least 10 people)

500 points - Picture of guy in girl's makeup (more beautiful = more points)

1000 points - Video of group Christmas caroling at someone's house

250 points - Video of group doing Riverdance in a crowded place

500 points - Picture of group next to a Hummer

1000 points - Video of guys (all of them) singing to a group of girls (not our girls)

Mr. T
Sunday. 8.31.08 10:48 pm
I'm going to tell a story in the form of a few random thoughts. Bear with me.

Cherry Lemon Sundrop, aka "Nectar", is a beverage with large popularity among my friends. Example:

The girl is Maggie, who I know. Sort of. The guy is Ryan, who is my long lost brother. He swims with me, too. The obsession with Nectar started with Maggie, moved on to Ryan, and then through Kyle and I into the rest of my friends.

So when I slept over at Kyle's house on Friday, Ryan was there. So were Clint and John. Ryan and John are also in my first block class, and are currently working on a group project with Kierra and me.

So, there were 5 guys hanging out, (I was only in my boxers, too, because we're awesome like that), drinking copious amounts of Nectar, playing assorted video games, and slowly going crazy. Ryan and I are discussing our project.

The teacher is cool enough that we want to have a cool name and theme for our team.

John interjects with, "We should be the A-Team for Mr. Palmer!"

Laughing, I asked, "Haha! Who would be Mr. T?" I was relaxed on a couch, trying to stay dry (it was insanely hot for a while), and not really thinking too hard. Besides, I never got to see the show, so the only member I know of was Mr. T's character. Heck, I don't even know the character's name. All I know is that Mr. T is like Chuck Norris with a mohawk.

Instantly, John replied, "Kierra!"

This is funny for a myriad of reasons.

Wow, I've left the post sitting here like that for over an hour. Watching an episode of The A Team. Hahahaha. Also, I think that was the first time I've used the word "myriad" on this site.

Reason number1) It almost kind of makes sense; both Kierra and Mr. T are the only black members of their group. If that sounds racist, well, you're kind of right. But it's the only similarity I can think of.

2) Mr. T and Kierra are polar opposites. Seriously.

3) Any way of giving a girl a guy's nickname always seems to please me.

4) I was partially insane. I mean, more so than usual.

Busy, busy

Friday was a really, really great day for me. Everything just went great. Completely peachy.

All the things about school that usually annoy me, but I accept as life, like long lunch lines, staying up late, boredom, missing homework...almost none of them applied yesterday. There was some homework that I didn't do, and wasn't even due until Tuesday. I took a quiz, the first in that class, and actually did well (I think).

During Driver's Ed, I got to catch up on my Zune Podcast Subscriptions. Score!

During Math class I had fun because the section we're doing just comes naturally to me, so I finished all the problems early and helped other people in class. This doesn't happen very often with me anymore. It was nice.

Creative writing is always a plus. Though the assignment she gave us over the long weekend is in poor taste.

After school, I got to get out of practice early (BUT THE COACH WANTS ME TO COME IN TUESDAY MORNING, NOT COOL) and run to Katie's house for about 7 minutes. Then I took her home, got rid of all of our trash, and took her and Sean to the Digital Scavenger Hunt at our Youth Group. Butt-loads of fun going on there.

Crap, I forgot (just like last year) to keep one of the lists so as to show what we do as part of the scavenger hunt. Meh.

After that, there was a brief skirmish with Mom about driving at 11 (but that also blew over relatively fast) and then I went to a sleep over at KILO's house, which is pretty amazing considering everyone's schedule. We messed around nearly all night, got sick from Wendy's, and finally went to sleep at some unknown hour of the night.

And now I'm back, with lots of work and no motivation whatsoever. I don't think Katie's even awake yet.

I was tagged by The Muffin Man, and I will get to that. But first I have to come up with 15 lesser known things about me. This is harder than you'd think because that's what this blog is all about...so lets see what I can dig up this week at school.

PS Does anyone else hate the scroll down bar with all your web addresses in the new version of Firefox? It just shows a seemingly random splotch of my history and my favorites. Which isn't what I want AT ALL.

Peanut Butter Oreos
Wednesday. 8.27.08 9:00 pm
I posted this in the reading section already, but I'll put here for attention's sake. This is the "process essay" that I did in Creative Writing 2, where we wrote out the process of something we do that's unique, be it a snack, game, or creation. I did mine on peanut butter Oreos, which I make with great care and attention. There's more love in one of these suckers than in a baby-boomer's old house.

It's two pages long on Word (double spaced, though!) but since the point of it is to be fun to read, I'm sure nobody will mind too much. And, it's really is yummy. So. Here it is:

Today we�ll be making a snack that�s healthy, all natural, and aesthetically pleasing. No, not really. We�re smearing peanut butter on Oreos. There are two giants in the snack world. Well, three: cheese, peanut butter, and chocolate. Any combination of the three can potentially be mouthwatering, but for now you�ll only read about two. So, let�s begin.

For the purpose of neatness, gather all the necessary materials on a table before starting. You�ll need a source of peanut butter (preferably a jar [preferably plastic {but it doesn�t really matter}]), a knife that won�t bend easily, a decent supply of Oreo cookies, and a plate. The size of the plate depends mostly on your supply of cookies, assuming you want to use them all. Or it might depend on your supply of peanut butter. Whichever of the two runs out quickest.

First, the Oreos. You know chocolate. Everyone loves it. I don�t need to tell you that. One of the most warmly received chocolate products, behind the chocolate fondue fountain, is the Oreo cookie. For our purposes, we�ll need the Double Stuffed kind for two reasons. Firstly because when split open, Double Stuffed Oreos split evenly nearly every time, with the cream entirely on one side, and leaving no question as to what side one should lick or eat separately. Secondly because the extra cream counteracts the tendency of the crunchy, chocolate-y cracker to absorb all your saliva and become extremely sticky (the peanut butter will probably make this worse). More cream means less scraping the roof of your mouth. However, using normal or reduced fat Oreo cookies is acceptable, even if it means you�re really a pansy. Take each side of the cookie in one hand, and twist. The twisting should be gentle yet firm so as to preserve the structural integrity of each cracker (you don�t want a broken cookie) and also to encourage all of the creamy goodness to stay on one side or the other. Also, each hand should twist in the opposite direction of the other hand. Otherwise, the cookie will simply rotate in front of your face and taunt you with its one-ness. You will fail. Assuming you do not fail in this way, lay each side of the cookie down on the plate. Take note of which side has a large white circle on it.

Second, the peanut butter. Now, peanut butter is big. Almost every candy bar that doesn�t have caramel in it has peanut butter instead. Peanut butter is much more versatile. (You won�t find caramel being sold by the jar.) Personally, I prefer Peter Pan brand, though JIF is good, too. As long as it�s not that �all natural� stuff. You�ll find that your taste buds are unsatisfied, and that your stomach contents tend to settle out unpleasantly. You need a steady supply of preservatives in your diet. On top of that, stay away from the crunchy kind, as that will ruin the texture of your delicacy. (There is a time and place for nuts in your butter, and this is neither.) As a side note, it might be interesting to try the peanut butter that comes pre-mixed with grape jelly, if it tickles your fancy. Acquire some peanut butter on your inflexible knife, and spread it evenly on the naked cracker; that is, on the cracker that has no cream on it. If there is no such cracker, use the one with the least amount of impurity. The layer of peanut butter should be no thicker than the cracker itself, and there should be room around the edges for smearing.

The last step is the most satisfying, and the most vital. Take both sides of the estranged cookie and place them together, cream against peanut butter. Line up the crackers themselves so that as seen from above, they overlap perfectly. Press them together slowly until the peanut butter oozes out just enough to pass the edges of the cookie, but no more. Note that one should have caution of extra oozage during consumption. Grab a glass of milk, because you know that if PB&J sandwiches alone or Oreos alone go with milk, then a combination practically demands it. Heed your thirst. Enjoy!
