I am disturbed by the number of emails I recieve offering to give me free trials of products designed to enlarge my male anatomy.


Just had to get that off my chest.

Carry on.

Deep Thought of the Day: Sometimes you have to be careful when selecting a new name for yourself.  For instance, let’s say you have chosen the nickname “Fly Head.”  Normally you would think that “Fly Head” would mean a person who has beautiful swept-back features, as if flying through the air.  But think again.  Couldn’t it also mean, “having a head like a fly”?  I’m afraid some people might actually think that. ~ Jack Handy

Tonight I discovered the reason children are supposed to, ideally, have a mother and a father.

I also realized my mom has been wearing both hats for way too long.

The Difference Between Guys and Girls:

Mother: Your sister's cell phone has been stolen. I -
Girl: Ohmigosh! When? How? Is she okay???

Mother: Your sister's cell phone has been stolen. (pause) I need to cancel the plan.
Guy: Okay.

Jerry the Frog Spoof Line of the Moment: Aragorn: Arwen, you’re dang hot, but I think this whole war and death and doom thing might make our relationship difficult.
Elrond: No daughter of mine will be going out with some shiftless mortal!
Arwen: I hate you, daddy!I’m going to go to my room and waste away pathetically.
Aragorn: …And that’s the story of my love life.

Deep Thought of the Day: As we were driving, we saw a sign that said, “Watch for Rocks”. Marta said it should read, “Watch for Pretty Rocks”, and I told her she should write in her suggestion to the highway department, and she started saying it was a joke, just to get out of writing a simple letter! And I thought I was lazy! ~ Jack Handy

Adults who do not understand modern technology should not “help” me with computer check-in.

Neither should lawyers who think they know my father.

Jerry the Frog Spoof Line of the Moment: Jar Jar: De gungans go marching two by two, hoorah... hoorah...
Fans: Kill us now.

Deep Thought of the Day: It makes me mad when I go through all the trouble of having Marta cook up about a hundred drumsticks, and then the guy at Marine Land says, “You can’t throw chicken to the dolphins. They eat fish.” Sure they eat fish, if that’s all you give them. Man, wise up! ~ Jack Handy

So on Monday I wrote that I was depressed after reading my horrible writings from three to six years ago.  I was very upset when I wrote that entry.  I was in the "depths of despair", as Anne Shirley would say.  But today things are really looking up.  I talked to Camryn this morning, and she pointed out to me that the fact that I wrote anything at the age of ten, regardless of its quality, is really pretty amazing.  And then I got to thinking about it, and I remember reading somewhere that as a writer, 90% of what you write you'll hate.  And I also realized I am a total perfectionist when it comes to my writing (which is bizarre, because I'm never a perfectionist in any other area of my life), which means that I will rewrite the same paragraph for months and still never be completely satisfied with it.  So it's totally natural that I wouldn't like what I used to write.  And also, yesterday I was looking at those old files, and I came across one titled "Story", which wasn't very descriptive, so I opened it up, and I found my very first draft of The Postcard.  For those of you who don't know (which is probably all of you), The Postcard is a story I began a few months before my thirteenth birthday, and ditched around this time last year.  To see what it started out as and what it eventually evolved into was absolutely wonderful for me.  It did me no end of good.

So, to make a long story - er - shorter, I am now quite cheered up.  On with writing, and may every word I write be better than the one before.

Jerry the Frog Spoof Line of the Moment: Gandalf: Look everyone, I’m back in the Shire.
Frodo: Whoohoo! It’s my only chance in this movie to be happy!
Gandalf: Good for you. Let’s see how many names of book chapters we can add into the dialogue.

Deep Thought of the Day: Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk, my first instinct is to laugh. But then I think, what if I was an ant, and she fell on me? Then it wouldn’t seem quite so funny. ~ Jack Handy

I have not given an update on my actual life in a few weeks, and as today is my first free Saturday since August, I feel this is the perfect opprotunity to do so.

Choir Retreat: A weekend Miss Lori designed to torture us.  No, seriously, it is a weekend filled with 8 1/2 hours of practice, and nothing else.  Now I love the people in my choir, I do.  I love singing with them.  I hate living with them.  Ah well, such is life.  The good news is, we did not get snowed in this year, like last year.  (Though there were some déjà vu moments where I was like, "No. Way." ... But they turned out to be false alarms.)

School: Why am I giving an update on school?  I have nothing to say about school.  (This is probably why I haven't given an update on my actual life in a few weeks... because I haven't had an actual life in a few weeks.)  Government - not even gonna go there.  Brit Lit - now there's something!  I wrote a new thesis statement (because my teacher didn't like my original one, remember?).  It is: 

          The epic poem Beowulf exemplifies the horrible literary techniques of over-repetition and unbelievable plot, coupled with the addition of unnecessary cultural customs. 

Jazz was editing it and she was like, "So basically your thesis is 'Beowulf sucked!'"
"Yeah," I said, "basically."
She looked approving, as well she should have been.  Beowulf was worse than both A Tale of Two Cities and Anna Karenina.  Now that's saying something!

Other than that, not much is going on.  I have almost no homework this weekend, I don't have a second job anymore, and my mother bought me Starbucks yesterday.  Life is good.

Random Icon I Made That I Really Like (lyrics from the song Stanley Climbfall by Lifehouse):

Jerry the Frog Spoof Line of the Moment: Sam: Aragorn's dark and brooding.
Frodo: Just like me, only taller.

Deep Thought of the Day: The land that had nourished him and had borne him fruit now turned against him and called him a fruit.  Man, I hate land like that! ~ Jack Handy
