So. I just got in from spending the night with my boyfriend,
Clayton, and I feel quite refreshed. We spent Sunday watching movies,
eating Taco Bell, and laughing quite a bit (my impersonation of Davy
Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean is quite funny!) It was a good and
relaxing day and I was glad for it.
However, I do want to mention one event that floored me, even while driving home several minutes ago. This event is why people still amaze me.
Due to me giving too… Continue

I've known for a long time that throwing away old computers (and TV's, and other electronic stuff) is bad news for the environment -- they contain large amounts of lead, mercury, cadmium, beryllium, arsenic, and other things that are safe enough when contained in your computer in your house, but horribly toxic if released into the environment. They also contain precious metals like silver and gold, which is a good conductor of electricity. Obviously, they must be recycled. But as… Continue

You may have heard (will have if you actually read this blog), about all the English homework that I've been given. Three essays and an oral within two weeks. The language analysis essay I'm doing right now is of a 3 PAGE ARTICLE!!!! Basically what I have to do is identify the techniques used, and write about how they persuade the reader. I just finished the first page and I have over 500 words. I also need to finish the introduction and write a paragraph on the tone of the piece. I got A+ for… Continue

I cant get this song
out of my head. I really would like ot be able to play music like that. The kid in the video looks like a young "Eric". Eric is this guitar player that my uncle used to play with sometimes. Really good songs, but he was an odd bird.
Star Wars fans, as usual, never cease to amaze me with what people with a love for Star Wars that borders on neurosis and too much time on thier hands can… Continue

It's 3am. I just spent over twelve hours with Nerdfighters from in and around Boston. And am I going to write my speech that is due in class today?
No, duh. I'm going to do the blog tag thing that TiffanyTuba tagged me in OF COURSE!!
(this post comes to you in 5 parts)
<b>#1 - </b>I am completely and utterly <b>in love with my high school</b>. It's actually quite sickening when I think back on it, but I know just about all there is to know… Continue

Okay, tagged twice. i get it. here goes:
5) my college roommate is from kansas city, kansas. tehehe. i know that's not really something about me per say, but im getting there.... i love going to parties and events with her, because when i first introduce myself to people i always get this "wow you're from Texas!" remark. But, when I'm with her, it's more like "wow you're from Texas!....OMG you're from Kansas! No Way" — hey it makes me feel a lil better : )

I was tagged by TiffanyTuba, who is the BANG leader...so I really need to do this well.
#1 I love geology. I am a huge geology nerdfighter, and I think that I may be in a spectacular minority - that is to say, I believe there are very few gnf's. I am really into structural geology but I think that I will be getting into metamorphic and igneous petrology a lot this semester. Explanation: if you think of earth as an assortment of desserts (muffins, brownies, cakes etc.) Petrology is… Continue

So I don't have time to do a full blown entry, but i did want to say that STELLLLLAA and I have started a youtube communication thing together, which should be very fun! We've made a couple of videos so far and are going to be making a lot more. We don't know exactly how long yet. Here's a link!

Some people annoy me, and some people don't. That's a fact, and if there is seriously no one in your life who annoys you, you don't know how lucky you are. There is a girl in my group of friends at school whose every word annoys me. This started last year, and I have no idea why she gets to me now, but whatever. I won't go into too much detail. But anyway, on Saturday I went to an 18th, and said person had WAY too much to drink. I have no idea why. That made her more annoying and very moody.… Continue

I was tagged by Teeter so here goes:
#1- Until I was about 18 I had a supremely debilitating fear of escalators
. I would ALWAYS take the stairs. It wasn't so much the ride, it was getting ON and OFF. I would stand at the bottom (or top), let the rail run through my hands and hover my foot, letting about 15 steps go by before I actually was confident to step on. I still do it sometimes now, but the difference is that I don't cry at the… Continue

Tagged - I have been tagged - and yes, it does sort of feel like being picked for the team at kickball!
Five things about me that you probably don't know:
1) I subscribe to the NewYorker - which I read only for David Sedaris and the cartoons, but pretend somehow that it makes me intellectual~
2) I am 'learning disabled' for lack of a better term - along with ADD, I have what is commonly called dysgraphia - or writing dyslexia. It is sort of like there is a disconnect… Continue

Nerdfighters, the Chicago Tribune has started a new contest with our name all over it!
The idea is to create a diorama involving the creative use of Peeps. Recreate a historical event, something from pop culture, anything. The only rule is that your box can't be any larger than a microwave, and it's not limited to Chicago nerdfighters, anyone from anywhere can participate.
The prize they give is $101, but the true prize would be Nerdfighter pride if one of our own won the… Continue

During the last few weeks, my roomate and I have been watching the series Cowboy Bebop. Normally I am ot a huge fan of anime, but I have loved this show ever since I first saw it when I was about 14 or so. Not only does this series have amazing music (the Seabelts are the best jazz band, or at least pretty close), but the characters are deep and the story is amazingly sad. It brings out the importance of camaraderie and belonging. Many times it…

tagged me, so here are five things you may not know about me:
1. I've been a vegetarian since I was 14. Back then it was more about the ethics than it is now, but it's always been partly because I'm a picky eater.
2. I hate onions in all forms except those where their texture is impossible to discern.
3. I like to curse.
4. I had LASIK a few years ago and no longer wear glasses or… Continue

1) My hands are genetically reccessive. All that really means is my pointer finger on both hands are shorter than my ring fingers on both hands. If I were to be a man, I would be dominant. I have no idea why that is, Star and Taggart did not tell me.
2) I have quite a few neoplasms. Don't feak out! they are only moles.
3) I acctually like to cook, bake, and knitt. And I don't like it when people ask if I plan to be a housewife.
4) I am a little freaked out by the thought… Continue

Well, I'm trying to wean Benjamin from Breast Feeding (the 7th of Feb was his 1st birthday) and it's hard. I'm trying to cut it to just before nap time/bed time . Sometimes he will just cry until I let him feed but I am making headway.
