The Weekend Shall be... Filled.

Lesse... I should really be studying the next couple of chapters of Luke, but I wanted to poke my head in and say 'hi'... I've got piano on Saturday. Leaving church for Chicago on Sunday, so don't expect anything outta me until next weekend, unless I can bribe my dad to let me use his laptop (and only if the hotel rooms get some decent broadband). So the bus ride'll last around five hours, four if Dad drives fast, and then at four that afternoon is the Top Brain Test. Ick.

For those of you in the audience that don't know what the Top Brain is, allow me to explain. During the Round Robins, it's 150 fill-in-the-blank questions in a half an hour. Tensions are high. During the National Tourney, it's 400 fill-in-the-blank-using-a-Scantron questions during the course of two hours. And they usually hold it in large conference rooms during Nationals, so there isn't a proper desk to work things out on. This usually results in your neck and legs aching really bad afterwards. Sucky. This year I'm planning to sit on the floor. But the big secret? Do what you know, and guess on the ones you don't know later. Easy, in theory.

And then we'll be play various games until the Double Elimination, in which my team must play, as my mom put it last year, "for blood". But when you lose twice, the rest of your day is free, free, FREE!!!

Sent my school stuff back yesterday, w00t!

So yeah. I'm off.

Current Mood: Daunted

Random Useless Fact of the Day:

Someone, shut him up!!

Obviously, I don't suffer idiots very well.

So What's New?

Nuthin' much. Currently my days are spent studying Bible Bowl and doing lots of laundry, one of the most unpleasant chores in my house, short of cleaning out the fridge. But mostly, it's Bible Bowl 24/7 in preparation for Nationals in Chicago. So yeah, that's going to be no vacation for me and my team.

Excuse me for a moment; I think Pixel's tearing something else up.


Idiot dog loves eating cellophane.


I guess I'd better get back to work. Blah.

Current Mood: Thirsty

Random Useless Fact of the Day: People seem to be foregetting the basics of American law, as the Ten Commandments have been banned from various courtrooms...

Some are just confused
The world is full of retards
Head, meet Mister Desk.

Thank you.

In case you couldn't tell, the bigger retards tend to annoy me. Pfft.

Even though they're kinda fun to laugh at.

At Last

"I'M FRRREEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!" remains my rallying cry at the moment. I am running away from the junior high bandwagon screaming. I'm not looking back. Oh, yeah, got good grades on my finals.

I'm officially on summer vacation. At freaking last.

Current Mood: Like a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders, AKA liberated

Random Useless Fact of the Day: Bad news? My throat has bugged out once again. I peeked down there using my mirror and it's all red. Dang. Back to Mom's famous tea remedy.

Vebis Part II

Yeah.... Haven't had a whole lot of time to write stuff. So now I suppose I'll entertain the masses with more Stories from Vacation Bible School. Fifth grade boys? Are legally and in all senses insane. I don't know how the junior worship people handle them all.

But the really funny story was this: I was describing what it would be like to spend the night in a stable, and I asked what happens when one rolls in the grass. I got a few good answers, but this one blew everybody in the room away-- "Umm... Well... You might get animal potty on you." Everybody had to prevent themselves from CRACKING UP LAUGHING. All I did (aside from failing miserably at keeping a straight face), was say "Well, yeah, that might also happen, but that's not what I'm looking for."

Hence, a great story from VBS.

Finals are coming up soon, THANK YOU LAWD. Algebra tomorrow, history if I'm lucky. If not, history will come on Tuesday. And then I shall be free to sleep until nine thirty in the morning, depending on how bad Beans has to go outside.

So yeah. Story of my life.

Current Mood: Tired

Random Useless Fact of the Day: The best place to read is on the toilet. I'm not sure why, but it is.

Well, it's that time of year again. Yes, that's right, vacation Bible school has begun at church. And what did I go and do? I signed up to do one of those story room thingies. So I'm stuck preaching about Jesus being born in a barn. Not too bad, since I got the same room as one of my friends and an intern that is as crazy as the rest of us. Plus our room looks awesome. I worked the staple gun, which is was pretty much the highlight of the decorating process. I've also been learning about the kids in various grade levels:

3-4 Years Old: We only had one kid cry, and that was because he wanted his mother. Poor guy. But they behaved pretty well, albeit with a couple of interruptions.

First Graders: They know too much for their own good. For example: "Is this a play?" "This used to be a classroom!" "Why did the shepherds knock on that door?!" They have two volume settings: Loud and louder.

Third Graders: Pretty well behaved, pretty quiet when asked to be.

Fifth and Sixth Grade Girls: Fun. They kept the rest of us entertained, listened pretty well, asked just enough questions, responded when asked stuff.

So yeah. It's shaping up to be a pretty interesting week, and it's only Tuesday.

The Humane Society was crazy yesterday. It was Critter Camp, meaning that there were small children running around and making the place even busier than normal. Hilton the lab/chow was very happy to see me. He showed this by offering his butt for me to scratch, and by sitting in his little wading pool, then trotting over to me, shaking himself off, and then sitting in my lap. I love that dog. Marigold the Jack Russel was also jumping for joy when I visited her, although she jumps most of the time. She also leaped in and out of the pool and my lap, licking me in the face with her stinky dog breath. This job rocks.

Had to do a political analysis for history today. I had to find the staces of both political parties on various topics, and then decide if they were corectly labeled as "liberal" and "conservative". My brain is now liquefied.

Current Mood: Mah brain iz teh liquefied.

Random Useless Fact of the Day: Remind me not to sleep with my arms all sprawled out under my pillow. That will jsut result in severe acheage.

Break It Fix It Then Upgrade It... Technologic!

Yes, it is the Title That Has Absolutely Nothing To Do With The Entry Whatsoever!! Bwahaha!

Okay, the maniacal phase has passed for now.

I just felt like typing something. So why not? I'm blogging. I'm blogging about blogging. I am still blogging.

Wow! I think I just felt some personal growth!

Current Mood: With a Headache

Random Useless Fact of the Day: --->(Disclaimer: A lot of this blog entry was inspired by a recent "Dilbert" cartoon in which the Pointy-haired Boss started a journal, wrote about writing, and was sure he'd felt personal growth. I just thought it was funny. Don't sue. Plzkthxbai.)

Algebra: The Haiku

Dang it, algebra.
Once again I have screwed up.
Crap!! Wrong radicand!!

Thank you.

The End Draws Near

The end of school, that is. All I can say about that is "Hallelujah!!". But yeah, next year I'm so not taking all the Internet courses... Sent in my big hairy-scary geography project the other day, so that's done with. 385 questions just makes your brain hurt like whoa.

My mom took me and my cousins out to see "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" yesterday. It was a really good movie, very sweet. Yes, one might want to be equipped with tissues. One part involved this kid dying from leukemia and I'm all, "Parallels to my life suck." There was, like, no one else in the theater except for this one old guy that looked like he was asleep half the time. Not sure why he'd wanna see this movie, since it is very much a chick flick. Good movie.

A lot of entertainment these past couple of days has been gotten from watching the Cardinals stick it to the Red Sox. Too bad they couldn't do that back in October... This September I might be heading out to see the Cards play, as Chris puts it, "the crappy Pirates". (Maybe I'll get a ketchup dispensor, since Chris has already claimed the one for the mustard.)

Current Mood: About to go get some lunch

Random Useless Fact of the Day: There are now 725 songs on my iPod. Trippy.

Maybe Some of These Would Work...

This entry shall be dedicated to my siblings: Chris (who plans to blow up the world), Phil (who has constantly plotted to take over the world), and Amy (who probably will blow up the world after taking it over).

I have weird siblings. But anyway...

I hope they find this helpful.

Current Mood: Headache-y on one side

Random Useless Fact of the Day: Let's see... About thirty days 'till Chicago. (Give or take a few nanoseconds.)

iPods, Again

So who's the newest member of my clan to be getting an iPod? My dad. This one was pretty much free; all he had to do was suggest a name for a security tool for work. so now, he'll be the lucky owner of an iPod. That makes four of us. Don't know when it's coming or what type it is or how much memory, only that it's an iPod. So yeah. Four of us have transferred over to the Dark Side.

Changed that background of this blog yet again. Notice, now there are actual LINKS in the sidebar! Phear my teknologikal prowess! (Ow, the spelling just died.) So, anyone else want linking to the Blog list? (If you want off it, I'll go and delete the link...)

Some of my new schoolbooks came the other day. Some of my Spanish stuff, some of my English and literature stuff. Whee.

Current Mood: Caffeinated

Random Useless Fact of the Day: One month until Bible Bowl Nationals... Look out, Chicago, here we come.
