Subject:dude did you just say that?
Time:6:10 pm.
Mood: good.

Huh. School's back in and I have nothing to write about.

The testing is easy. Even the math. And I get to do it all over again next year, same stuff.  I finished early for everything so  to read I brought "Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man". It's good stuff. Just that little dose of Republican-ism I needed. It's funny how wrong he is and the stuff he comes up with. Friggin liar, gosh. Good book though. Read it if you get the chance.

I finished a story I started way back in May. It just stared at me all summer on my computer and today a thing of genius struck me and it's done. I might put it on wow-schools if someone wants to read.

My Red Sox are winning, the Thousand Oaks Little League team is winning (CALIFORNIA BABY!!!!) and tomorrow is going to be kool beanz.

I'm declaring summer's not over until Sunday, because it still feels like it.

Time:8:46 pm.

So, summer is officially over. School's back in. Schedules anyone?

1. Honors English Lit
2. Honors Trig/Math Analysis
3. AP US History
4. Spanish III
5. Christian Relationships
6. AP Bio

I have two with Caitlin, one with Megan, none with Karyn and Jessica, and like 3 with my favorite guy, Daniel. Oh yeah and I saw my other favorite guy...now my favorite sophomore...Mac! ($20 bucks says Jessica is screaming at the computer right now.)  My hardest is going to be Math because, well, it's Math. But i'm going to push myself this year, at least harder than last. I want to get awesome grades and with four weighted classes I think it's doable! And if it's half as fun as sophomore year is it'll be awesome.

I took Jessica home after school. Ah the pleasure of not having to walk anywhere anymore. Yeah I think I'm done with all that...maybe when you grow up ok?  We ate at her house. (We almost "died"!!!!! hahaha no not really no worries we're ok.) I painted at her house...it's the coolest thing EVER. I can't wait until I can drive people.  It's going to be so fun. Bob's Big Boy at 2AM anyone? Especially Caitlin since she's never been there *shakes head*. So yummy, just no one put tabasco sauce in my coke this time. Thanks.

Red Sox won today. Schilling pitched AWESOME. So it was a good good day.

Now off I go to eat my ice cream. Nite y'all.

I stayed inside all day. You know what I did?

I FINISHED American Colonies.

With two days to go I am done. Well, except for the Pre-Reading stuff but screw that it'll take me all of five minutes so I have two days of freedom! Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!

The Red Sox won. God IS a Red Sox fan!

Who else thinks that having trampoline as an olympic sport is the weirdest thing ever? I think I want some chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. Oh hey!

What's everyone's favorite ice cream? Leave a comment and let's see!

Subject:So this is what the outdoors looks like...
Time:11:23 pm.
Mood: thoughtful.

I woke up before noon today and no one was home so you know what I did? I did homework. Only three more chapters to go, and I've got a good feeling I'm doing it all tomorrow.

I ran today too. After my third hour of homework I decided I needed to get up off my butt and do something. I didn't run outside though, the last time I did that I got chased by a dog so I'm sort of...afraid to. But I popped in my West Wing DVDs and watched my favorite episode while I sprinted on the treadmill. God love technology. It felt good just to be out of breath and sweaty. And the strange thing is, I wanted to run my butt off.

We went to Peter's b-day. It was alright. Lots of guys but no trees. His friends are crazy anyways. It reminded me of New Year's Eve at their house, since it's cold (how about this weather in August huh?). And I got laughed at when my mom said I was interested in politics. Whatever...he can bring me corn dogs when I'm passing his laws.

So three more days left. Summer is ending and it just makes me sad. I do want school to start but it's the simple fact that once I go there's no turning back. I'll be in for the first week and before I know it it's Christmas and it's going to be all rainy and gloomy, and then the end of the year will be here but go by just slowly enough to torture us. I was walking around in some sort of funk/haze because of it. I want to go camping again and sleep out under the stars. I want to go back to Ashley's and bake cookies and talk to a phone for an hour. I want to listen to Robby's band play and piss off the neighbors. Or squish three people onto one couch for a sleepover. I want to go back to Missouri and stay up until 1:00 watching Sesame Street and playing Hide and Go Seek in the hotel when we shouldn't be, being with 12 of my best friends.  I'm so lucky it's sick. 

I guess I don't want reality. But that's what I've got.

Time:11:08 pm.
Mood: nostalgic.

so today...how was today...fun stuff!

We watched my baby cousin all day and thank God she was an angel...she's been crazy the rest of the week. So we took her shopping with us and I almost got me some Vans but I didn't like any of them. And I need a new backpack. Ah, the good ol' school shopping routine.

So then we were going to Vons. I've got this application for there burning a hole in my pocket but I'm not sure when to turn it in. See, I need a job not so much as I want a job, shown in the point that I have $25 to my name right now.  See, I think I'm going to turn it in, unless I get this big babysitting/picking up kids after school gig thing.  I also want to wait and see what my schedule for softball will be because I'm actually really excited about it starting again and don't want to miss a lot. I'm not worried about school because I can handle it and it's only part time. So, I have to wait a few more weeks before I do anything, and then I turn it in. But before I decided that I had one of those moments like in Ferris Beuller where Cameron just sort of freezes and freaks out...yeah but then I went back to normal. Craziness isnt good.

Then I headed over to Jessica's and had some good ol' fun. I brought her her poster which we nailed to the wall with a shoe. Watched movies and TV because we're losers...I mean...cool like that. Lt. "O" came over and man he looks scrumptious in pink even! LOL. And her brother made fun of me because I wont drive people and I don't WORD.  Well too FISHING bad! He ain't shuttle-worth my time anyways!

I just heard "Redneck Woman" on the radio. Made me think of Missouri...

I don't want summer to end.

I've figured it out. He's some sort of god. Some sort of geeky god that everyone worships. And it makes me just not care. Thank you boredom!

I had an oreo shake today and man was it GOOD or what. Then I went up to AHS and got my school shirts. They're too big though so I have to go up there again. I should start getting used to it, school starts in less than a week. I was sort of excited about it earlier but then it hit me once it starts I'm there for nince months and there's no turning back.  I'll get to see everyone though so it's kool beanz.

Four more chapters of "American Colonies" left. Thank GOD.

I saw "Say Anything" for the first time today. And I am officially in love with John Cusack. He's just the best. And I want to go out with a guy like Lloyd. Yeah...

My baby cousin is coming over tomorrow and we're watching her...please don't let her scream like she did today...but if anyone is bored and wants me to come visit let me know! Jessica I can bring you your poster!

Alright, night y'all.

Subject:Should it be shaking like that? Hmmmm...
Time:10:13 pm.
Mood: tired.

First of all...join jumpstart_heart  it's AWESOME.

Ah today was lots of fun. I woke up at 8:00 and that hour of the day has been foreign to me the whole summer. But it was OK because it was Magic Mountain day! Me, Katie, Allyson, and Patty went (even though I was the only one without a season pass...I'm just cool like that.) I played pool all by myself...and won. So THAT'S what it takes to win. Interesting.

We got there at like 10:00 and I realized I'm allergic to Katie's cat...bad. I think I sneezed at least 50 times over the whole day because I had cat hair all over me and it was on the pool table and...grr! *you make me sneeeeeeeze* . Even ask Allyson, it's all true. We went on a whole buncha rides and went on Roaring Rapids early so we were soaking wet all day...it was actually quite cooling. Katie was mean to me all day, I thought she was flipping me off but she was pointing at something or being a 'sarcastic one' so i told her she was mean. Yeah. Didn't talk to me for a while. Then when we were waiting for X (which, by  the way, had a 2 hour line but was SOOOO worth it) she kept talking about how it shouldn't be shaking...and how it was working wrong or different from last time. AS IF I WASN'T SCARED ENOUGH! Scrambler was great, Al almost killed Patty (lol) my ice cream was good.  The carousel is the best ride EVER. I almost took off Allyson's fingers playing air hockey (sorry Al!) You're still cool even though you like the *shudders* Yankees. --------i'm declaring that a WORD-------

The best part of the day would have to have been the Hot Ice Skaters. AWESOME. (insert big bell signaling internet sarcasm here). And when I won my lion. It was a great day.

Death Cab.. is awesome.

I have nothing else to say, and I'm sure not many of you got this far anyways so let's call it a night! <3

I've got a hunger
Twisting my stomach into knots
That my tongue was tied off.

My brain's repeating
"if you've got an impulse let it out"
But they never make it past my mouth.
this is the sound of settling

Our youth is fleeting
Old age is just around the bend
And i can't wait to go grey

And i'll sit and wonder
Of every love that could've been
If i'd only thought of something charming to say.
this is the sound of settling...

Subject:When you start spelling 'death' wrong...
Time:9:31 pm.
Mood: excited.

School starts in a week. And I spelt 'death' wrong. Yeah, it's time to go back. I want to though. It's about that time.

I drove...a lot...today. Me and Bode went out and had lunch with my Dad in Topanga near where he works. Mmmm I haven't had an oreo shake that good in a long time.  Then we went to the Topanga mall and went in ABERCROMBIE but sadly Jessica, he was not there. Then we went to our mall because Topanga sucks and I got a cute Roxy bag I've been wanting. Very cool.

JESSICA- The chart is finished. I overdid myself.  I don't even think I am going to give it to you it's so freaking good. If you aren't a walking Red Sox encyclopedia after I give it to you, well, at least I will be!

Got 'Death Cab for Cutie' today. Dang that's a good CD. I still think I like 'Postal Service' a little better (it's the same guy) but they kick either way. Go out and get it. "Transatlanticism".

Why are glove boxes called glove boxes anyways? Death Cab's got it down:

*The glove compartment isn't accurately named
And everybody knows it.
So i'm proposing a swift orderly change.
Cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
And all i find are souvenirs from better times
Before the gleam of your taillights fading east
To find yourself a better life.*

Tomorrow I'm going to Magic Mountain with Al, Katie, and Patty. I'm so excited. It's going to be so much fun...we need to go TREE sighting (TIMBER), get Katie to stop talking with an accent, and have Patty talk. :)

Good times. <3

Subject:TREES ARE STUPID LETS THROW ROCKS AT THEM
Time:9:19 pm.
Mood: excited.

Today was a good day.

I woke up way too late. Thank God for summer. Jessica called to tell me something about Seth Myers and the Red Sox/Schilling so that caught my attention.  And that conversation evolved into a whole day spent with her.

The object of my going over to her house was to do notes. Yeah, didn't happen too much. We walked to Subway...no honks this time...either we weren't hott enough or the sleazebags weren't out in full force like usual. So we got our sandwiches and saw Tim. The lady working there knew we liked him so she was just like "Oh, his name is Tim." With the accent...freaking hilarious.  Then we had Hostess. Watched 'Stand By Me' in honor of summer being almost over. God that movie is the best. Then we got thai food. Jeez, we didn't stop eating all day. In between all that somewhere we did like a chapter of homework so it wasn't a total waste.

Also in between all that we set up the next SOPUM date. August 27th. For more info, just ask me or Jessica. We have an honorary guest and a few invitees.

We also had a good few talks. About guys, of course. Same ol' business. Concocted some theories (THE VILLAGE) that may or may not be true...but for the next five minutes I'll take it.   Then we had a good sort of politics talk...it's fun to talk to someone who knows what they're talking about, not some dumb kid who says they hate our government because the guy on CNN said so. It's amazing...my friends outside of school would have been laughing at me and telling me to shut up if I started talking about that stuff...like Katie laughing at me on the plane for having TIME magazine and then for reading the paper every morning. Or Ashley telling me she just doesnt care lol.

Speaking of, I'm excited! Wednesday me, Allyson (THANKS FOR THE PICTURES!), Katie and Patti are going to Magic Mountain. TREE SIGHTING! And good because I need to get this tree out of my head. It's going to be lots of funn! Then Friday. Yeah.

What a beautiful mess I'm in.

I just learned that Paul Newman is half Jewish. And he was in the Army. He is (ok...was now) the hottest man alive.

                       Brad Paisley "Make A Mistake"

                            You over think things
              You say what if we're not meant to be.
                              Well you know what?
                                        So what.
                             Make a mistake with me.

             Nobody goes through this life and does
                             Everything perfectly.
            We're all gonna fail, so you might as well
                          Make a mistake with me.

                   Sometimes baby when we take
               A chance that has this much at stake,
                  We look back and in hindsight
          What seemed wrong looks more like right.

                 So I say worst case, we'll be left with
                           Lots of good memories.
             This chance we have well it's worth that
                       So make a mistake with me.

                I'm tellin' you, the right thing to do
                               Is make a mistake...
                                 Make a mistake...
                          Make a mistake with me.

So last night was shall we say....interesting. But fun, I think I went to bed and wrote for a while with a smile on my face.   All this tree talk has got me thinking...it's making me forget about what I haven't been able to forget for a long time. And I love it.  Odd, how things work out.

I saw "The Manchurian Candidate" today. It was really good. Then I took on homework. Five more to go and I'm going to do it all by Tuesday. Fingers crossed.

I need to go to the mall this week...maybe I'll call Katie or Allyson to go...I soooo want to go to Magic Mountain! We can forget about our tree troubles and walk through the forest...then make sure Katie isn't too much of a hick from her weeks in the country. :)

Robin Williams was making fun of the talking GPS systems in cars today. I was rolling on the floor laughing...because it was so true. If I don't steal a car with it first (sweetness! lol) I am buying one. Random, I know, but sooooo great.

Ah, yes things are alright. <3

I love watching the olympics. Ian Thorpe is just amazing...and hott...and Australian. Did I mention amazing?

The song "Letters From Home" makes me cry. It's so good.

I still feel sick...so all day I cleaned my room. It's weird, really, to be able to see your floor. I looked through all these folders and folders of things I've written...thus the posting.

I want to study human behavior.  See why people do things. Why they're so crazy and complicated.

Then I can maybe figure out what I'm thinking...because right now it's driving me crazy...then making me feel good...then driving me crazy again. Ah, but I love it.

So this is what happens when you clean your room...Collapse )

Subject:scrabble playoffs!
Time:1:48 pm.
Mood: sick.

I want to go back to Missouri...maybe not even there, just somewhere besides here. I told my mom that.  I just had so much fun and everything was so much more relaxed and fun while we were away. My mom said it's because that was vacation and now we're finally back in reality. 

So translation: reality sucks.

I saw 'Little Black Book' on Wednesday with my cousin. It was alright. Ron Livingston made it worth it. She slept over and we went to the beach yesterday. it was cloudy and cold and the waves sucked so it was a bad day at the beach. I slept the whole time. Ususally I'd be out in the water but noooo.

We got home and I went to Caitlin's with Jessica.  That was fun. Looked at funny notes from Freshman year and almost read a juicy love note to Matt before Caitlin stuck it in her mouth and ate it. (Talk about eating your words...) Subway was delicious...no points problems this time...except for Caitlin and her boyfriend having dirty conversations while there were children around. We saw 'The Village'. My second time and I guess I liked it better this time. I still got scared shiznitless but I didn't have popcorn to throw in the air. Shucks. Played the second ultimate game of hide-and-go-seek outside and pissed off her neighbors...I had the best spot may I say. Except for Jessica's...that was pretty good too. The sleeping arrangements were shall we say...uncomfortable...as I molested Caitlin with my feet, elbowed Jessica, and she kicked me in the head. Ouch.

So now I'm home. Sick. A sore throat and a headache. This really isn't cool (God has a sick sense of humor). No one should be sick during the summer. I still have six chapters to do for American Colonies (even though we're teacherless AGAIN....damn school) and I can't do it while I'm sleeping all day.

Shooot...I don't even talk to him anymore.  He talks to everyone but me. She's crazy.  I don't get it. I'm sick of hearing that my time will come.  Yeah not soon enough.  I just wish I could skip these last two years of school and get to college where I can find someone smart and mature and gets me. Sixteen year olds are a bunch of jerks anyways. One in particular.  Yeah Allyson I'm having tree troubles too.

Someone want to come feed me chicken soup? I like chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream too.

Time:7:23 pm.
Mood: grateful.

Ah! Palm trees! Sunshine! Traffic! No mullets! I am home!

I just spent a week in Missouri. I never thought I would say that but my God, that was one of the best experiences of my life. And now y'all get to hear all about it.

Monday: We left our house at about 6:00 to get to LAX.  We met up with my friends Katie and Ana since they were on my flight...it sure made things more interesting thats for sure.  We got Starbucks while we were waiting and I almost knocked mine over laughing at Ana trying to figure out how the ice machine worked. We were there really early so the dads had beers and my friend's mom tried to make sure we didn't have a drunk pilot.  The flight was good...no turbulence and I got to sit with them the whole time and we listened to Katie's iPod (THAT THING IS THE COOLEST!)  We got into St. Louis at around 3:00 and my holy sweet sassy-mo-lassy it was hot there! Not so much hot but muggy...it was about as hot as LA but the mugginess just got to me.  We had a stupid rental place so we didn't even leave until 4:00, and then it was time for a four hour ride into good ol' Springfield, where the tournament was.  The girls rode in one car and we attacked Ana with a map (because we're cool like that) and got into Springfield at about 8:00. Janie, Mel, Allyson, and that whole gang got there a bit after us so we went to what we decided to call "The Spinning Tomato" for dinner.  We were the only people there so it was so fun...dancing ravioli and baby loaves of bread hehe.  Back at the hotel we played cards and Janie destroyed my hotel room (and found disgusting shows on TV). it was a long day but so much freaking fun.

Tuesday: I woke up Tuesday morning with a headache...JetLag sucks monkey fishes.  No one even woke up until 12:00 so when we all got up we went to the mall.  It was so funny, we didn't even have to talk and people knew we were from California. We must have just reaked of west coast-ness.  Everyone stared at us, it was pretty funny. We used as many "likes" and "dudes" as we could.  We saw a "forest" (if you are interested in the meaning of this, let me know i want to tell!)  Katie bought a necklace and the total ended up being $6.66 so the lady at the counter was like "OMG! Buy something quick!" So what did we buy? a "JESUS IS MY HOMEBOY" pin! Heck yeah! Using Jesus to fight the devil yo.  When we got home from the mall we had a little time before the Opening Ceremonies for the tournament.  I don't know what I should have been expecting but it was pretty cool. We got food and then mingled/traded pins with other teams...they all talked funny, lots of y'alls, and apparently the way they described us was "talking too fast and sounding like punks." And they thought we were really cool because we were from California hehe.  The ceremony was cool, they announced our name and we got applauded and everything.  I almost cried during the National Anthem, being all patriotic and all.  Definitely something I won't forget. Back at hotel we hung out in AD's room and watched Billy Madison (no one understood me and Mel's Bradley Whitford obsession) and Family Guy.  Tried to get through all the stupid drama i don't want to talk about.  Then sleep, yes sleep was good.

Wednesday: We woke up early for a 9:45 game against an Oklahoma team.  I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be, being the National Tournament and all, and we won and I got a great comment from the ump so it was awesome.  We had a LONG break in between that game and the next so we decided to go see "The Village". Dumbest movie ever.  We only paid $5.50 for it so it wasn't too bad.  It was scary as heck but dumb.  The funniest part was SJ throwing her popcorn and screaming whenever she got scared and then me and Katie (who dressed alike on accident) getting hit on by someone who might not have had all their teeth.  After that we hung out in Mel and Janie's room (also my coaches room keep in mind) and Mel decides she wants a Grilled Cheese.  And whose the lucky cook? ME! While cooking I almost burnt down the hotel room....I almost burnt down my coaches room! I felt stupid but they all laughed it off so it was alright. We won our second game and I did great (that always makes it better) so we didn't have to play until 7:15 the next night.  Translation: we could stay up as late and we wanted and the parents could get as drunk as they wanted.  Around 12am someone calls my room and my friend Katie answers.  Ok, so you know, it's her birthday this day.  So she answers and they ask for me. I pick up and it's my coach, drunk as drunk can be and he starts singing Happy Birthday TO ME! IT WASN'T MY BIRTHDAY! It was so funny. We called back and asked him if he was drunk and his response was "No...but I think you guys are!" Then we went down to the room where all the parents are and I wish I had a video camera. It was so funny.

Thursday:Woke up at 12:00...see what partying does to you? Me Ana and Katie went to The Waffle House.  It was so funny...everyone there knew each other and had the regular and everything.  So typical little diner or something.  Ana got her bacon and we had waffles (there's more to the story later though...) We got back and right away went out to lunch for Katie's Birthday at The Spinning Tomato. More drama so it sucked but the food was good...and we got to blow bubbles in the restaurant so it was awesome!  We played at 7:15 against a Washington team and lost....we blame it on the umpires but I think it was my fault...I was catching and missed a ball so the winning run for the other team scored.  ALSO it was the WAFFLES FAULT. we are never supposed to have waffles on a game day but we did. So it was me and Katies fault. Sorry. We were all sad for about 5 minutes before we partied again for Mel Ana and Katie's b-day. Yummy cake and Cute Iowa Farm Boys! Hehe. And Mr. Bear! I was too ti-red to do anything else so I went to bed.  We had two games the necxt day anyways and if we lost one more we were done for good.

Friday: We beat a team from Texas in the morning and they were harded than we thought they would be. I didn't play well so obvisouly I was upset.  In between the game we went to Hardee's which is basically our Carl's Jr. They have the star and everything.  But they weren't Famous Stars, they were Thickburgers! Not as good as back home but yummy.  Our next game was against basically our rival, El Rio.  We beat them 8-0...MERCIED to put it in softball terms...so that means we knocked them out of the tournament! EL RIO ON AN AIRPLANE!  We celebrated back at the hotel and we brought out the Fart Machine. Omigod, we freaked out so many people. I have never laughed so hard in my entire life.  It was a sight to see...we had a full elevator and we doing it. Good times.

Saturday: This was the last day of the tournament, for us.  We won our first game of the day so we had a break...we hung out in the back of a van and sang country songs. It must've been weird for the Nebraska team by us to hear all these Valley Girls singing country songs. And it's even on video tape so if you want to laugh at me, you can.  We won the next game too, and the next, before we came to our last game of the day...we lost 6-2, meaning we were out of the tournament. But hey we got

7th out of 42 teams.

Sunday: Everyone went to bed early Saturday yet were all asleep when I went out to Branson so visit my cousins from Louisiana. Branson is like Missouri's Vegas, not exactly what I call fun but it was alright. Go-karts kick! We spent the afternoon in Branson and came back at around 4:00 and the whole team went to the County Fair! It was so much fun! The rides were so crazy, especially the Ferris Wheel (we saw gay guys in action....SO GROSS.) I did two things I never thought I would do: Sang karaoke and rode a bull. We sang "Redneck Woman" and "Wanna Be" (Spice Girls) and that was fun as ever. We had a huge crowd too! Then I rode a mechanical bull and you guys, it was so bad. I had to get a running start to get on and then I couldn't stay up. Someone later asked if they got a picture of me riding it and I was like "Are you kidding? I wasn't up long enough for anyone to take a picture!" We got back to the hotel and played the ultimate game of Hide and Go seek even though we weren't supposed to be roaming the halls. We stayed up until 1:30 to say goodbye to the first people leaving and cried...even though we'd see each other in a few days. I guess that's what happens when you're stuck together for a week.

Monday: My family and Katie/Ana's family went to St. Louis for the day. We went to the top of the freaking arch! Got lost looking for dinner and saw a really cool lightning storm (can you tell I'm running out of gas?) But it was awesome...we stayed in the jacuzzi an hour longer than we should have but no one caught us.

And today we flew home. Katie went to Iowa so just me and Ana roughed the plane ride home. It's good to be back, but I do wish I could go back and do that week over again, just to live it again. It's something i always wished I could do, and I got to do it with a group of people I couldn't have been more lucky to be surrounded by. Really, and incredible trip.

Scars heal... glory fades And all we're left with are the memories made, Pain hurts, but only for a minute Yeah life is short so go on and live it

Hi.

I had four games today.  We got 2nd place *woop*.  Accused some people of trophy theft (hehe) But it was all good fun.

My brilliant quote for the day:

"Who's that lady in New York that holds the torch? Oh The Statue of Liberty? I was going to say Rosa Parks or Eleanor Roosevelt." I swear, my friends are modern day geniuses.

Daniel thinks pandas are going to steal my 'American Colonies'.

I leave tomorrow morning for Missouri. Going to Nationals! It's going to be so awesome, I am so excited. So, I'll see y'all on the 9th!

Time:9:53 pm.
Mood: excited.

I saw two of my favorite people at church today.  God, one of them is just so damn full of himself but then when I see him I remember why I liked him.  He's an amazing kid though, it'll be interesting to see when he makes something of himself. And the other one...well there's not much else to say there.  It's been way too long. Nice though.

How cool is it seeing Steve Finley in Dodger Blue? But it's awesome, I love Fins.  NO MORE NOMAH! GONE! TO THE CUBS! The end of "Nomah."

I almost got into a fight with someone in Target today.  I was looking at (and later bought) a book called "Michael Moore is a Big, Fat, Stupid, White Man" and commented that it was the best thing I've ever seen.  Then this couple comes up, maybe in their 20's and I swear to God said, "What is this crap?  Don't they have anything better to do than pick on Michael Moore? It's not even their title they stole it from him.  How retarded." (Keep in mind, didn't Al Franken steal his book title from someone?) Anyways, I just so happen to comment quite loudly, "Really? Because I think it's freaking brilliant."  I then received the death stare and a strange feeling that the girl could have pulled out a gun and shot me.  I went to go find some cookies since I was hungry, and everywhere I went there they were.  At the checkstand she saw I bought it and I just smiled at her.  Some people will never get it.

Today was fun though, I had a game.  Yeah, it's always fun when you win.  And have you ever had someone say something and then just break into song? All I have to say is: Hands Down.  Good times.

Tomorrow I could have four games.  I could also just have one.  I'm almost packed...just the finishing touches and that's the hard part.  Shoot, I'm leaving in a day. I hope it's fun, no drama, no nothing.  It just hit me this morning that I'm going to Missouri for a week.  Yeah, but I'm excited.  Really excited.

Cookie? No......bye.

Time:10:54 pm.
Mood: awake.

That's it. I finished packing. Almost my entire life as I know it is in a suitcase...let's just hope it doesn't get lost on the plane and no crazy Missourians take it. (They're weird like that.)

Whoa, only two more days.  Who wants a postcard? Email me your address....or I might even have them already.

Today was long, but fun.  We won our game and here's some fun stuff for you to laugh at, although practically no one who reads this will understand.

-The two hour car ride to North Torrance...which included:
1. Us using Katie's iPod to play country music all the way there. It's not so bad!
2. "Choose don't streeeeeeeeeeeetch..."
3. Listening to Hilary Duff over and over.
4. Melanie almost choking on her lemonade....God's subtle way of telling her to shut up and stop singing! :)
5. Carl's Jr. and the possessed ice dispenser thing AND the retarded Coke thing.
-The game
1. Making fun of Paul LoDuca getting traded...and Shawn Green. (but I like him Sammy!)
2. Me playing short....WHOA
3. After the game coming *this close* to getting to drive the Land Cruiser. I had the keys in my hand and he told me I could drive and everything...but my mom had my wallet with my license so if I would've gotten pulled over for anything (i dont know what though....maybe for looking so cool or something...) i would've been dead....but Ashley I came so close! hehehe
4. Then after at dinner THERE WERE GIANT VEGETABLES FLOATING OVER MY HEAD!!!

Whoa. 11:30 hyperness attack! So I am off...I'll see all y'all later yo!

I have a game today and I don't want to go. I want to curl into a ball and sleep until FREDDY leaves me alone.

I watched West Wing last night on my DVDs. "Noel" is possibly the best hour of TV I have ever seen. Bradley Whitford rox sox.

There's times when I wish all the people I've been friends with since I was 10 went to my school.

I'm leaving for Missouri in two days and I haven't packed yet.

I really gotta hand it to you.
