100 Percent Vegetable juice?
Friday. 2.15.08 4:57 pm
So after drinking a can of my superawesome spicy V8, I realized that the can says "100% vegetable juice", but there are ingredients other than vegetable juice in it, like ascorbic acid, salt, flavoring, and citric acid, but not in that order.

Reading "100% vegetable juice" makes me think that the contents of the can are 100% vegetable juice. Not 99% vegetable juice and 1% other stuff. This label is misleading.

Sure, it says "From concentrate with added ingredients", but then it's still not 100% vegetable juice. It's 100% vegetable juice with added ingredients", which is not what it seems they are trying to use as the selling point. They're trying to say that V8 is 100% vegetable juice.

Also, what is the deal with "flavoring"? What is it? I can't complain that it might exist in crazy quantities, because it's the next to last item on the list.

I think I'm going to have to email V8 and ask how it is that 100% vegetable juice is not 100% vegetable juice.

I went grocery shopping last night, to buy some fruit and spicy v8 so I wouldn't keep spending 4 dollars at 7-11 on a small apple and a 12 oz bottle of spicy v8.

The apples I wanted at Kroger were very sad looking. The bananas were all very green. Who the hell eats a green banana?!

So I turned around, and saw Asian Pears. I've seen them before, don't get me wrong, but I've never bought one. They were $2/lb, so I bought one. It was interesting, not peary and appley, but at the same time peary and appley. I wasn't expecting it to be as not-sweet as it was, but it was still good.

It's like the time I went to a Chinese buffet at home and had some longans. I wasn't too keen on them, I think it's because they were in syrup and looked not too fresh. It wasn't bad... just new, I guess.

So back to apples. I was looking around at all of the apples (there were at least 10 varieties, apple overload much?) and the nicest looking apples were Sonya Apples. I got two, but haven't had one yet. It's supposedly similar to a red delicious and golden delicious, but sweeter. The two I bought were a bit pricey, perhaps I will have one and then write about it, as is wont for a person making posts on the internets.

I've got a few stored-up bitches.

Today's is about PMS.

A few days ago I was emo.
A day later I had broken out in awful acne. Couldn't figure it out for the life of me.

Then I check my super-awesome menses-tracker and realize that in about a week, the British are coming.

Today I am hungry beyond belief, and have no qualms about bottoms-upping a jar of salt. I don't like adding salt to anything, except white rice.

I'm annoyed, because I have eaten way more than I normally do, and that womanly nag says "zomg you are going to be bloaty mcbloaterson tomorry and your new pants won't fit!".

Stupid PMS.

L? I?
Friday. 2.8.08 3:17 pm
There's a blog that talks about how lowercase 'L' looks like uppercase 'I'.

I was watching telly, and a commercial for one of those college-at-home programs comes on.

The url was http://www.SchoolInPjs.com

The font made it look like school ln(pjs).com. (Edit: I guess I should clarify by ln(pjs) I mean the natural logarithmof pajamas...)

School ln(pjs) doesn't work. School In PJs looks very, VERY shady.

Not doing homework!
Wednesday. 2.6.08 10:33 pm
So I have fields homework due friday, and I am being an awful student and not working on it. I should probably ask ranor and/or zanzibar if they have any notes from when they took related classes, as they implied they had in the past... (my email is (mynutangusername)[Klammeraffe]gmail.com, hint, hint.)

The first question looks eeeeerily simple. This bothers me. The homework overall doesn't look too ridiculous... that's good, I just need motivation to do it. Perhaps after (shit I need to take my laptop with me to class) class tomorrow, I will sit in my room and work on it for a few hours. I've written a few basic things... but I have a headache.

I'm feeling a bit emo, for varying reasons. I think one of them is my current apathy towards my homework. I also have a headache. I can't concentrate on my work, bah. It's going to be cold tomorrow, and I am out of deodorant at Dave's. There's a quiz in one of my classes, which I am worried about, even though I shouldn't because obviously I can do the work. Whine whine whine. Kvetch. I'm tired, the all-nighter I pulled the other night has thrown off my sleeping.

I came in to take a nap last night, set my alarm for 8.30p, and slept right through it. Dave says I woke up and turned off the alarm, but I don't believe it.

I've also realized that I'm about to have some issues, so I'm trying to stave them off. I'm going to have to make sure I eat regularly. Bah. Maybe I should go talk to someone about these things.

I got twylor something, I hope she thinks it cute/tasty, and doesn't grumble at what it says. :/ It came with more than I thought it did, but I still like the addition I got for it.

Procrastionation is fun. Yes, procrastion-ation. That's the type of nation I live in. (I originally typed "lation," my math teacher last semester always said "elimilate" or "elimilation"...) Full of procrastio(n).

Anyway. I am continuing to procrastinate by oogling things on the internets.

Like this porcelain hamtaro/bijou So cute, but totally useless.

Dave needs this shirt while I need this shirt. Or vice versa.

House of anime isn't that exciting.

Strapya is always entertaining... I don't feel like looking through it.

Maybe I'll go to sleep for the night and work on fields tomorry.

Ooooooooooooh!!!!!!! Blue(purple) roses!!! I somehow have not finished this entry.

To the world; regarding edgy:
Tuesday. 2.5.08 9:45 am
A brief pre-summary: Edgy is only edgy the first time or so something is done. If everyone does it, then it is not edgy. "Edgy" is like a sharp knife. Use it one too many times, and it becomes dull.

And now, for the full post:

I am getting tired of "edgy". Everything these days is "edgy". Comedy. News. Alternative Fashion. You name it, it's "Edgy". Except it isn't, because EVERYONE DOES THE SAME THING!!!!

That is not edgy. That is dull. Dull like the blunt end of a penis.

What starts this rant is a number of things. I will discuss them, probably in a not-so-brief manner.

1. The VAGINA(!!ONE!1) Monologues: I get it; you are "edgy" because you write VAGINA in large letters. Or with a disproportionately large capital 'V'. Or some other method that is supposed to make it "edgy" because "Oh noes, you guys, they wrote 'vagina'!" I understand that people need to be aware of certain issues, and I am perfectly fine with that, but this "ZOMG VAGINA!!!" business gets old quickly. What better way than to increase the issues you are try to fight by losing your edge, because you keep relying on the same gimmick?

2. Emo/Goth/Alternative Styles/whatever: I'm going to start this one with a personal rant. There is this girl on campus, I see her every Monday/Wednesday. She clomps around in her khakis, dark glasses, black T-shirt, black boots, black messenger bag, and some sort of mp3-playing device. There are many other people around, with outrageously dyed hair, "non-mainstream" clothing... you name it. I am all for people expressing themselves, that's awesome. But sometimes I see people, and the way they carry themselves just SCREAMS "I am trying TOO hard to be 'edgy'/'unique'/'freaky'/whatever," and while I am against judging on outer appearances or laughing at people because of them, I always feel the laughter bubbling up inside. I feel a bit bad, since I've been on the receiving end of it, and it is shit, but there is just something about the vibe that comes off of 99% of these people (that I've met). It screams "I'm different and better than you because I am edgy like 3 billion other people". I like to express myself too, but I try my damndest not to walk around with a stick up my butt.

If this makes any sense, I guess what I am trying to say is that there seems to be waaay too much "edginess" among these particular groups, and it's not even real edginess. It's the everyday garden variety "edginess", it doesn't at all reek of the "I am comfortable with myself" edge, which is the kind of "edge" that everyone should have. Beh.

3. Back to anatomy. Is it really all that funny to go out in public and yell "PENIS!!!" as loud as you can? Seriously. It's a penis. Everyone who is not a woman should have one. Get over it. Penises aren't edgy, regardless of my "blunt end of a penis" analogy which implies a sharp edge somewhere.

Penis is not the point of this grumble. In actuality, the point of this grumble is shitty comedy. TV, movies, whatever kind of media you desire. "Fuck". That's pretty edgy, right? So are "cunt", "cock", "PENIS!", and "VAGINA!" Any sort of poop or sex joke, and if it's racially charged? Totally super-edgy. So sharp, it can split a sheet of paper along the .12mm edge. This is why I don't watch most TV, or most movies. They try too hard. It goes from "Edgy" to "dull" to "damn this is annoying." I could name so many shows/channels that try so hard to be "edgy".

Oh, I forgot: Science is edgy as well. Woo, science.

This "edginess" gets to be like the internet; You see one shock-image/site, you see them all, and these things stop having the same effect that they used to. Then people start whining "We did ___ [that no one else does, at all, ever.]!! Why aren't you shocked/surprised/etc?!" They fail to realize, that like I said in the beginning:

Edgy is only edgy the first time or so something is done. If everyone does it, then it is not edgy. "Edgy" is like a sharp knife. Use it one too many times, and it becomes dull.
