Uh, hello. I'm new here, and I was just wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them: Hearing things in someone else's voice after you read or watch something of theirs. Particularly if you really enjoyed that something. For example, right now every other thought in my brain right now is in John Green's voice, as creepy and as fangirlish as that sounds. It happens with books or articles as well; I read a really good one, or one that just has a message that really sticks with me, and…
So, for a while we have been planning to downsize from our wonderful memory-filled house in Walters Falls. My mom sold the house, and soon after I came home for Christmas holidays, found a lovely apartment in Owen Sound to rent. It has three bedrooms, a spacious kitchen and living room, and a bathroom. MY ROOM HAS A RANDOM CUPBOARD IN ONE WALL. A HUGE CUPBOARD WHICH I CAN EASILY SIT IN, AND WHICH IS CARPETED AND HAS THIS SLANTED PART I CAN LEAN ON VERY COMFORTABLY.
I was writing the second installment of my book when I decided to use the word ‘befuddled.’ It was a genuinely perfect word for the situation that arose. I then stared at it in all its glory and thought to myself, “What would happen if ‘befuddle’ had some archaic meaning that I don’t know?”
As in all situations like this I strolled on over to my one stop shop for words: dictionary.reference.com (not paid to type that, I just REALLY…
An introduction to curse words, why they exist, where they come from, how they function, and why they are, in fact, different from other sorts of words.
And, yes, I really did say all of those bad words and, with significant detective skills you can probably figure out what it was that I was saying. Sorry for the profanity...it was interesting to scream curse words…
Just to see what nerdfighters have in common, answer these in the comments below :)

In which John goes completely nuts over the publication of the brilliant reference source LAST WORDS OF NOTABLE PEOPLE, which includes the last words of everyone from William Faulkner to Robert Frost to Benjamin Franklin, and which you, too, can own: http://amzn.to/cYxay8 (And no, they did not pay me to make this video. I just GEEK OUT OVER… Continue
Words are wonderful beautiful things full of happiness excitement and love yet also filled with sadness and depression along with anger and betrayel they are full to the brim with every emotion imaginable
Most words are similar yet unique
but my words are the most…
If the rule is to add an -s or -es to the end of a noun to make it plural, we SHOULD say sheeps, mouses, fishes, etc. When any speaker says sheep or fish meaning more than one, they are violating a very simple and commonly accepted rule of the English language; and what's worse if I try to follow that rule, they say I'm speaking silly words.

Ladies and girls, this is the last time I will ever be on this website for I find your depiction of nerds to be incorrect and ridiculous (its more ridiculous than the shoddy piece of hollowvision that is Hollyoaks).
Merry Christmas "nerds".
I hope you find time between chatting to each other, about all your cool stuff (likely including things such as "shiz" and this "B20" thing) and sleeping (about the only genuinely interesting thing you lot do), to read this blog… Continue
I'm getting very tired of the idea something has to go on for words and words, paragraph after paragraph to be deep or have meaning. Maybe just focus on a simpler idea. Why couldn't that have just as much meaning?

So it’s Autobiography Thursday again, and I have a confession to make… I’m chickening out.
It may not seem like it at times, but I’m actually quite shy. In addition to that, I’m not a big fan of my life’s story, and there’s a lot of it that is really painful to recount, so I don’t think I want to write about that anymore. After all, the current events of my life are bad enough. Why force myself to relive everything from the beginning again? Instead, I’ll do as I have… Continue
[Just found this and thought it would be a shame to lose it when I move. It really speaks to the whole writing process and how an idea gets messed up as you try to express it and it's always at its best in your head.]
There are no words to express
The things inside my head
Perhaps this pen’s point’s too fine
Perhaps there’s too much on my mind…
Out there I see a world of wonder
These shutters capture as they… Continue
So, the past few days have been fun. Research: Paranormal is currently on a week-long investigation of the Shanley Hotel in Napanoch, NY. We made our way up on Tuesday, stopping for the night in Gettysburg and meeting one of our fans (that's weird to say, we have fans). The next morning, we toured the Jenny Wade house and stopped by the North Carolina monument on the Gettysburg battlefields.
We even broke out some equipment and had an impromptu… Continue

I like pretty words, so with help from the interent i will compile a list. it may be added to later if that's possible. it will never be finished. if you are reading this and know a good word please leave a comment!
well i got the boombox riddle! not much of a riddle, more like a follow the clues thing.
Anyway, i'm not sure what to do with myself, i think i should draw, my drawings are so different from those skewed portraits in my 'my pictures', but everything recently has been doodles, or on tests or worthless. Sigh, i want to learn water colors. And graphic design. I should do that, in fact i will...once my homework is out out out of the way, as it eats up my time horribly.
