Random Useless Fact of the Day: Gasoline generally doesn't explode unless it's mixed with 93% air, so the car exploding after you crash it probably isn't going to happen.

Yeah, yeah, I've been a bad blogger lately. Since I can't think up any particular subject matter to go on, I've decided to just go on randomly. (Oh, dear...)


Just took midterms, did pretty darn well on them, especially in English, which is among my least favorite subjects (even though I'm actually good at it). The science and geography were no trouble. Could use some more work in algebra. Haven't taken Spanish yet, but it's not too far away. (I started Spanish later than everything else.) So yeah, the scholastic side of things is going pretty decently. Last quarter, yay! Only nine more weeks of school!

In a couple of weeks, my family is going to head on up to Minnesota to help my brother install a bathroom in his old house, since he and his wife recently bought a new house. I'm looking forward to it; I haven't even seen much in the way of pictures in this new house, and besides, this is my brother and sister-in-law we're talking about here. I love seeing them. (Now let's see if we manage to bring the "Uno Attack" thing....)

Taekwondo is still going strong. I think I'll be testing for Green 1st on the 18th, God willing. The injuries have been slowly cropping up; my quad muscles (you know, they're in your legs) keep getting kicked. I think the muscle might've been bruised last night; I was sparring again and caught some gal's heel. One thing I will say is that I'm GLAD I'm not a male. Getting kicks "down there" is not an uncommon occurance, seeing as everything's moving around so it's hard to take aim properly. So there's something being female is good for.

I think I'm catching my mother's plague; she's been pretty sick lately. My throat's starting to bug me and a fever's been slowly cropping up... Yay. Tylenol for me. (Better living through chemistry.) Hopefully it doesn't last long. I can't stand colds; they go straight to my ears and lungs so it feels like every orifice in my head is plugged up. Thank God for vaporizers and those little shower tabs that are made from "Vapo-rub." (Now THOSE are cool! Plus it's a great excuse to take a long, steamy shower.)

So yes, that's what's been going on around here. I'm a very boring person.

Current Mood: Tired

Random Useless Fact of the Day: "How now brown cow?" The "brown cow" spoken of in the old proverb used to mean the large casks of beer in pubs. Simply walk up to the bar and ask for the brown cow of the hour, and one could avoid some nasty hangovers.
