I thought about making this into another giveaway but 1. I'd have no idea if you were cheating and it is sooo easy to cheat on this one and 2. I don't have the energy for that kind of thing right now (not to mention I've still not finished that last giveaway prize... oops, sorry Bob).

  1. Pick your top 15 movies.
  2. Use IMDB to look up quotes (or some other method that is accurate)
  3. Post said quotes (no names mentioned, unless in the quote)
  4. Have your friends guess what movie they came from!
  5. NO CHEATING!! (No Google, no IMDB, no Wikiquote, etc.)

And I promise. You should all get at least one of these.

  1. "It promotes the war effort, patriotism, and... all that. "
    "Since when have you been interested in the war effort, patriotism, and... all that? "

  2. "What makes life so difficult? "
    "People. "

  3. "Look I probably should have told you this before but you see... well... insanity runs in my family... It practically gallops. "

  4. "What a nice man that hermit was. I didn't even know I had a hermit! "

  5. "Because I love... dew."
    "I love dew, too, eh."

  6. "I mean, if I were ever going to buy a desk set... twice... I would probably buy this one. Both times! In fact, its shape... it's rather aerodynamic, isn't it? You can feel it. This desk set wants to fly! "

  7. "You're not just gonna let him die like that, are you? "
    "My shoulder angel. "
    "Don't listen to that guy. He's trying to lead you down the path of righteousness. I'm gonna lead you down the path that rocks."

  8. "Never try to fool children. They expect nothing and therefore see everything. "

  9. "That scepter's made of wood. "
    "Yes, well, we do dream on a budget here, don't we? "

  10. "Spocky?"
    "No, spooooky."

  11. "Mahana you ugly!"

  12. "Aren't they beautiful?"

  13. "I wish, I wish I were a fish."

  14. "Salesman should be by in about three, four hours. "
    "Whoop-de-do. "

  15. "Watay?"
    "Uh-oh watay!"

Make your bed!
Monday, August 25, 2008
♦ 8/25/2008 06:35:00 PM 0 comments

Something about me that very few people know and even fewer are likely to understand: making my bed* frustrates me. A lot. Enough so that I'm liable to start throwing things. This is also why I hate washing sheets.

*The whole shebang: mattress pad, fitted sheets, and all.

Scary, scary spider

More Spiders

P.S. I was just now on my way to the bathroom and squished another one. Of the common house-hold variety.

I don't think I'll be having sweet dreams tonight.

I've spent 5 nights in this house, if you count tonight. I have killed 3 spiders (me! Killed a spider!):

Tuesday- Average house spider. Still, you know, really creepy, but only dime sized. Now dead on a ledge.

Wednesday- Slightly creepier than your average house spider. Maybe just because it was bigger, though, I amn't sure (nickel sized). He got flushed after I smooshed him with a handful of about 10 kleenex.

Thursday- Possibly the spider that bit me. Also nickel sized. It was scary looking and NOT your average house spider. It has brown legs and a brown head and a white... whatever the rest of a spider is. If I die, at least I can go down thinking I killed the creature that killed me. Currently residing on the carpet, where he met his death. I actually keep checking just to make sure he is dead because last time I killed a spider with a flip-flop, it came back to life about 5 minutes later and tried to scuttle away (but couldn't escape my excellent aim- with a hammer this time. Last I checked, his leg was still in the carpet. Maybe it got cleaned out by now). This time, after I was fairly certain the terror was dead, I put my shoe back on and started stomping on him. Then ground my foot into the ground. Then stomped on him some more. It's been about 10 minutes and he hasn't moved.

Oh, yeah. I got bit by a spider. Yesterday I just figured it was another mosquito bite, but being that there are actually two little lumps next to each other and the fact that my ankle is now non-existent (I have a "cankle" as Barbie called it today at work), and also considering that it looks pussy and purple, I'm pretty sure it is a spider bite. Also, it stings and mosquito bites just itch. But then the rest of my leg, up to like my knee cap, itches like heck.

Chilly did this on her blog and promised me that it wasn't stressful and then said I should do it, too. And who am I to argue with Chilly? She is so smart. And older than me, so I should listen to her mostly always.

Ten Things I Wish I Could Say to Ten Different People Right Now:

  1. Words cannot describe how much I wish I could erase all of it. Yuck.
  2. Stop being so wishy-washy. You're always wishy-washy and you never listen to my advice until it's too late.
  3. There's actually an awful lot I wish I could tell you, but I don't think you'll ever know any of it.
  4. Will you ever tell me why?
  5. It's sort of comforting to know that you understand the things I don't say.
  6. Next time, just let people figure things out on their own.
  7. I wish you would go away. Life is complicated enough without you being dense about it.
  8. You used to make me laugh and I miss you.
  9. I need you to come back and tell all your terrible jokes again.
  10. Thanks for accepting me back into your good graces, even though prolly I don't deserve it.

Nine Things About Myself:
  1. I remember a lot of unimportant and irrelevant details
  2. The steering wheel of my car has to be straight when I park
  3. Messes make me stressed and anxious
  4. I used to win ribbons at the county fair for various art things
  5. I've never left the country, unless you count Canada (Niagara Falls)
  6. I used to act and even won some sort of award for Drama Competition in 9th grade
  7. It wasn't until after/maybe during my Freshman year of college that I hit 100 pounds
  8. Sports are very boring to me
  9. Water scares me. Specifically deep water. I don't mind so much if I can touch/see the bottom

Eight Ways To Win My Heart:
  1. Hire me for my services
  2. Give me a book that I've been wanting
  3. Respect me
  4. Be trustworthy
  5. Listen to me when I have something to Say
  6. Love or at least tolerate my cat
  7. Don't treat me as a person of convenience
  8. Help me find that movie that I need but cannot find

Seven Things That Cross My Mind a Lot:
  1. Why?
  2. When?
  3. How?
  4. I'm tired
  5. I don't know
  6. I hate moving
  7. [Person] is annoying.

Six Things I Do Before I Fall Asleep:
  1. Wash my face
  2. Brush my teeth
  3. Floss
  4. Read
  5. Make sure my alarm is on for the morning times (and when I sat "times," I do mean it plural."
  6. Turn the computer off and the music on

Five People Who Mean a Lot:

Two Things You Want to Do Before You Die:
  1. Work at Disneyland
  2. Travel abroad

One Confession:
  1. I eat desserts for breakfast.

Sticking it to the man

I would just like you all to know (mostly My K) that I have found a way to beat the system and stick it to the man. Also, I found somewhere to live and signed a contract this afternoon. If you want more details, email me or catch me on gtalk (yeah... good luck with that last one).

Take that off-campus housing! Ha!

Remember when
♦ 8/16/2008 12:19:00 AM 1 comments

Remember when I used to write all the time? I don't mean like blogging writing, but rather real writing. Like, you know, prose and poetry. I miss it, kind of, but I feel like it's something I've lost the ability to do because it's been so long. I guess it's sad, really, because I was good at it (or at least thought I was). But it's gone and I've nothing left to say. Not the way I used to say it, anyway.

I guess this all came from remembering when I was on deviantart. I've recently re-opened my account, but I rarely log on and I've not done anything with it since rediscovering my password.

Meanwhile, today was a crazy hectic day full of apartment hunting (cross your fingers; I don't want to curse myself), packing, and trying not to go insane. I'm so tired. And still packing (needed a little bit of a break). Dad is going to be here in like 7 hours to help me finish the process and then it's off to the streets.

Also, to anyone I've snapped at lately, I do apologize. Like I said, I'm stressed. And highly emotional (we've shed many tears this past week). And missing my bunny a lot. Hopefully, if this housing thing works out, my moods will improve and we won't have to see this person I've been for a long time.

Back to boxing.

It's off to the land of the streets for me again. Yup, out on my duff with no where to go. Sad.

Anyway, I'm moving out of The Village like... today and tomorrow, so I amn't going to be online much. If at all. And I also don't have anywhere to move to right now, so that creates a bit of a complication that we won't go into for the time being. If ever. Needless to say, I am very stressed, which makes Mom stressed, which makes Dad stressed, which makes us all a very unhappy family, but because my parents love me, they are coming up today to help me get things sorted and moved out. Wee.

Now that the summer is basically, you know, over, I finally get to live alone. For a few days. Both of my roommates are moving out and not sleeping here. I only wish they would have done so much, much sooner.

Ghost-towning in Frisco, UT

♦ 8/03/2008 06:49:00 PM 10 comments

A typical mining town at the foot of the San Fransisco mountain was fed by the fabulously rich Horn Silver Mine. By 1885 over 160,000,000 in zinc, copper, silver, lead, and gold were hauled away by mule train and the Utah Central Railroad. Water was shipped in as well as all supplies. Then the mine caved and people moved away, leaving only a few families of the 4,000 population to maintain their homes, stores, school, and church. By the 1920's only memories and the shifting sands were left.

And here is Chilly reading the sign.

The first building we investigated
Chilly crouching down and posing for me.

Chilly showing us all how small tall she is.

I think this was a barn because up in the rafters there were two GINORMOUS Katria sized nests. That is how big they were! Below is a picture of one of the nests.

A... thing. I don't know what. I think it fell over, though. Just a guess.


The Sister peeking through this... thing. I don't know what it was.

KILNS!!!!!!! This is the inside of one of them.

And here is Chilly taking pictures of inside the kiln.

There was actually a fence surrounding them, but we climbed over it. Don't worry, though. As much a miracle as it may seem (considering all the rusted metal in the area), I didn't get tetanus. The fence was actually bent down in this one area and "climbing" over it consisted of stepping over it.
Archaeologist Chilly in the midst of her documenting.

And then deciding to stop in front of my shot. She's so cute, though, how could I resist taking her picture?

The inside wall of one of the kilns. I may actually have this picture upside down... I'm not sure. Hard to remember.
The roof of one of the kilns, beginning to deteriorate.
This is an unstable building.

And then this nasty looking bug landed on the outside of the car. It was eating a deer fly, so Dad got out to take a picture of it. Sick.

An abandoned mine shaft. We didn't go in it because there were possibly poisonous gasses and Dad didn't want us to die.

My fingers don't hurt anymore, but in other news I burned my neck with the curling iron this morning. It immediately formed a blister then popped (gross) and is full of all kinds of pain.

Bad idea:

Some days are just not good days. Therefore, I plan to be in bed and sleeping within the hour.

The key to my heart
♦ 8/01/2008 11:22:00 AM 0 comments

Only not really. I don't have a heart, so there is no key to it.

No, the real key we are talking about here is the key to surviving weekends! As we all know (or maybe we don't?) I hate weekends. Detest them. There is nothing to do, especially when it is a weekend when I don't go home (those weekends aren't all bad; I at least have Rochelle to fill my time with).

And here's the secret: have something awesome to look forward to! What awesomeness do I have planned this weekend? Chilly and I are going ghost-towning! Some of you may know of my love for old, deserted towns, others may not. Needless to say, I heart them. And I also heart graveyards and cemeteries a whole lot. This place has it all! Murder, intrigue, lots of dead people.... yeah, it'll be cool. I'll blog about it... sometime. I don't know when. We all know how well I've updated my blog lately. Which is to say, not well at all.

Next weekends awesomeness, luckily, begins way early (like Monday!) when My K comes to see me! We are going to have some good times all around and go see Wall*e after I get off work Monday, and Wednesday we are going to meet Chilly downtown for some lunch, and there will be lots more bonding times involved, I'm sure. So excited. And then Saturday it will be back to Santa Horhe where I will slave away for my Rochelle (don't worry, she's paying me to be her slave. Yeah, she's cool like that) and spend time with the fam.

And I guess I really should start packing for this move I am needing to make soon. Yeah, that would be a good idea.

A Saucey Night Life
♦ 8/01/2008 02:55:00 AM 0 comments

I can't believe no one is online at 3 in the morning! Come on, people. What about the saucy* night life?

I actually went to bed like a long time ago. K, like 4 hours ago. Maybe even 5. And slept. And then my body decided it had to wake up at 2 am for no apparent reason and I can't fall back asleep. They say when you can't fall asleep, you should get out of bed and move around (but restfully) so that your body only associates your bed with sleeping. Or something like that. So I got up and found some water to drink, then I turned the AC lower because I prefer to sleep when it is cold and it has not been nearly cold enough (Dad can appreciate this- after all, it is his fault that I like to sleep in temperatures in the upper 60s). Then I tried laying on my floor to sleep, but no go. So then I got online in desperate hopes that something would trigger the sleeping mechanism in my brain, but also a no go. I start to feel like this whole sleep thing is a lost cause, and how am I supposed to be at work by noon?**

*And by "saucy" I mean... I don't know, at least remotely entertaining. Which things are not being right now. Entertaining, I mean. In the least bit.

**Barbie has some dance thing that she wants us to come and watch, only it's at 7 and my shift doesn't end until 8. But I still want to go, so I was thinking I'd go into work an hour early. "But wait!" you say. "An hour early is 1?" Well, yes, only because My K is coming into town next week I am going to be leaving work early on some days then, too, so I want to get a few extra hours in while I can. But, like I implied above, I start to doubt this will happen being that when sleep does come (and then ends again), I doubt I'll be feeling very rested.
