well. i was going to have a really nice thoughtful post here that was all deep and shit, but i want to use some kind of ‘expand text’ thing with it, and i’m far too tired to look one up or try and comprehend asking someone about it. so, maybe another day, though if i dont do it now…. it’ll prolly never get done.

instead, you get this super-interesting convo between me and bry:

freezefire666: man i replaced my toothbrush batteries

freezefire666: FUCKING HELL

freezefire666: i thought the thing was gonna explode

AmidalaLover5000: lol

freezefire666: i was like SHIIIIIIIIIITTTT

AmidalaLover5000: lol

freezefire666: then i realised that was normal

freezefire666: and i’d been running it on nearly-dead batteries way too long

AmidalaLover5000: ah

freezefire666: so yea

freezefire666: my teeth feel uberclean

well, being bored and not wanting to start on my stupid english essay, I’ve decided to do a weekend post after all, since though my convo with tripp does sum it up, it was somewhat more exciting than that : P

friday alé drove down from UNT and picked me up mid-8th period (my off period) and *yey* we escape to the freedom of the weekend. we headed to the parks mall to supposedly do some shopping for stuff he needed for his dorm/college life/etc, but got distracted by the weird stuff in that outdoor store (G-something), the shiney things in Spencers, and the cool boots in planet sole. so having accomplished nothing, we went back to chez-moreno and watched Princess Monoke (sp?) which was a pretty good movie.. i mean.. *avoids blows from various people* a WONDERFUL, GREAT MOVIE.

the movie was longer than we’d anticipated, so by the time we headed off to vikingfest (i wanted to buy a yearbook) it was nearly 7. we arrived, and stood in line so i could write out my blank signed check (compliments of LA) for the yearbook. (we contemplated making an escape to Cancun to live the high life, but in the end we were too lazy ; P ) we saw some people who recognised alé and that was rather interesting, and also Victoria Smith and Armand. we met kathy, katie, emily, and tri, and i bought a [CHOCOLATE!] cupcake from theresa lim my jr friend from orchestra and health sci I last year.

then another escape, this time to get food. i tried to tell alé about the thai place i went to dinner with gentry, aroon, max, and the crew of gentry’s friends when he came to visit, but i couldnt remember the name, or the location (i’m so cool like that). in the end, somehow, he figured out just where the heck i was talking about and we arrived at 8 or so. yum. food. good. i still dont know the name tho : P .

after the meal we didnt really have much to do, so we drove around for a while the usual alé style (crazy and reckless : ) ) and blared BT. then we headed to river legacy to see if we could wander round the park a bit, but it closed at 10, and it was 10, so we decided not to take chances. we headed to gibbons park which is by butler instead and hung there for a while, trying to stargaze on a rather overcast evening. we actually saw a few stars, tho. i saw 3 or so and alé proved he has better vision (or simply more convincing hallucinations) by seeing 4 or 5. then the escape for friday ended, and i returned home.

saturday was lazy and boring. i dont remember what i did, for most of the day, but it wasnt hw… it wasnt really anything productive. alé picked me up for another escape around 6, and we went to see pirates of the caribbean, a movie that was actually really good and far exceeded what i thought it’d be like. i want the soundtrack, it was very noice (from what i could tell between being distracted by the action, plot, and whatnot : ) ).

sunday was lazy, and boring, and consisted of me actually doing hw… or at least, some of it. made my ‘bag of me’ for health science, and so lots of you now have your pictures stuck on a paper bag on display in mrs key’s room, if you care to know. i think my little speil today about coding, aim, and quakecon left most people staring blankly, but turns out jeff adams went to quakecon for saturday and he also recognised a few of you seniors (dont you feel special?).

so yea. that pretty much sums up the weekend part.

but, i have to include this ever-so-enlightening convo with chris, that shortly followed the one i posted earlier:

TrippSkiggins: OO! That reminds me

TrippSkiggins: I had the coolest dream last night

freezefire666: what was it?

TrippSkiggins: my cousins told me to watch this movie, so I did…

TrippSkiggins: It started by showing a bunch of gorillas, one of which had the face of Jim Carrey

freezefire666: lol

TrippSkiggins: the the gorillas became lions (which I didn’t actually realize until after I woke up), and the Jim Carrey lion ran screaming through the pride of other lions and they all ran screaming after him…

TrippSkiggins: my cousins told me that he had just seen a ladybug and was scared

freezefire666: *laughs*

freezefire666: so random! i love it

TrippSkiggins: all the lions jumped this fence and I ran after them, also jumping like 10 ft-tall fences

TrippSkiggins: then there was the guy who owned the lions, and he went looking at the next farm to see if they had them

TrippSkiggins: I was then the Jim Carrey lion and went to some random store in the middle of this field which had a lady in it who loved cats.

TrippSkiggins: the end

freezefire666: that’s great

freezefire666: you win best dream of the week award

freezefire666: it made a grand total of 0 sense

also winning an award this week for ‘most strange pictures in a small amount of space’ is THIS SITE.

and finally: what better to use to hold my ID round my neck at Lamar than my QuakeCon nametag? aw yea… ; P

freezefire666: i’m sorry

freezefire666: there’s not much to update about

freezefire666: oh wait. went out again

freezefire666: eh mix those up

TrippSkiggins: post that

well let’s see. today wasnt too bad, really! english was ok, NO EDL THANK GOD and i dont mind poetry much. *shrugs* not really sure what to think so far, but being in the class with kathy, emily, tri, & mel makes it interesting and fun. i got assigned that infamous ‘i am’ poem and a two page autobiography about ‘anything.’ as long as ‘anything’ includes what i did to prepare for the ap test last year, how i did, how i feel i did, and how i feel about the ap test in general. *…* anyway. it could be much worse, i’m sure, lol.

french is kinda hell right now cuz i dont remember anything. especially verbs. oh man verbs *groans*. luckily mrs eldridge is a nice teacher and she knows that i missed a year in between french II and III so i think i’ll survive..

lunch was calm today cuz oj and matt went off to somebody’s houses, kathy and tri got stuck in chem, and mel and katie just didnt show up at the meeting place. so emily and i jumped in her car after beeing chased off school property and headed to her mom’s house, where we ate, drank, and generally made merry. we also reminisced about last year and talked about what i am to do about my eigth period.. more on that topic later.

calc was … an adventure. i arrived about 15 minutes before class started, and had to wait a while before they let us go up the stairs.. god forbid we arrive early for class. but even then i was a good 12 minutes early. still, i wasnt the first. irene was there, and so were about 5 other people. everybody’d come early to get a seat, since about 10 people in our class have to sit on the floor. i saved a seat for ma k-girl kathy behind me, and mel came in a bit later and had no seat, so he sat in the isle next to me, occasionally banging his head on my elbow cuz….. he’s mel. class proceeded. mostly it was review, but i had a hard time concentrating on what he was saying, i dunno why. i’m kinda worried cuz i remember less of what i learned last year than i thought i did. the hw was easy though, cept for the last question, and i finished that in 8th period. the title for the hw, though, really got me. it seems so random! it says:

“Label Label Label, I Made It Out of Clay”

what does that have to do with calculus? lol oh well.

since i have an off period 8th period i headed to mrs abel’s class cuz i cant go home (stepdad wont pick me up, then come back in an hour and a half to pick up my sister & her two friends we carpool with). i dropped off my homecoming picture in mrs mckees room. i had a hella time figuring out which one to turn in, and when i asked people for their opinion, i got pretty much even votes on all three pictures : P

i scanned some of the pics and sent them to alé last night, who retouched them and made them look a little nicer.

this picture wasnt one of the ones i got blown up to maybe turn in, as i wanted my ‘arm art’ to show, but the third picture i brought to school alé doesnt have on his site, so i cant link to it, can i?

this second pic was popular, tho prolly the least popular of the three i took to school today. the one that’s not shown tied closely with the one i ended up picking.

THIS pic is the one i ended up picking, as you can see my kneehigh boots (compliments of emily, they killed my feet as she wears a size 7 and i a 10), my kilt, my necklace, armlet, arm art, headband, and the evil look on my face very well.

emily and kathy both turning in ‘unique’ pictures as well, and all three of us are happy cuz we feel like we’re adding a little zest to homecoming, as most people turn in some fairly normal senior pic or just an ordinary pic. who knows? maybe we’ll come dressed up like that to homcoming. now that would be awesome. mrs mckee wasnt really sure what to think, i think, when she saw all of our pics, lol. she exclaimed over all three of them, and then admitted ‘you guys are killing me with these!’

btw, katie had some awesome pictures too, but as she’s the photographer of the four of us, her pictures (taken by us) didnt turn out as nice as ours did. but she did turn in a really pretty one of her in her backyard with her hair up.

*coughs* so yea. i was planning on meeting drew in mr schumacher (sp?) ‘s office to show him the preview-trailer for drew’s movie, but he got there early, so by the time i got there at 2:10 (the time he said he’d be there) he was gone. mr schumacher and i talked for a bit though, and it was nice cuz he’s friendly. he started talking about dawson’s creek, tho i’m not really sure why, and i’ve never watched that show. then i went back to mrs abel’s class and looked in the api to see if i could come up any ideas for something to code. mrs abel was ultracool, and let me have an account, though technically i’m not in her class : P. cuz of this, i’m a9hodcro : ) yep.. 9th period.. lol. and hey, it’s not my fault the thing’s too short to take my whole name! lol.

here’s a little schedule that i think is accurate, as far as the last of the ‘senior’ departures go:

15 August: tripp

17 August: alé, ar00n

20 August: drewish

21 August: thomas-o, cam

22 August: blakerson

Sometime in a month or so: bob (nick)

so wish the last of your fave now-college-freshmen goodbye and give them shiney things, for the week of leaving is arrived!

well. the first day of school. um. yes. wow.

it went ok i guess, it was nice to see everyone i havnt seen in a while, like tri, theresa (jr) and others. didnt see my sister all day (such a loss) or pablo (wouldnt actually mind seeing him) but overall the day went well. clinical rotation is prolly my fave class so far just cuz.. i donno. it’s freeish, friendly, and i’m one of 4 seniors.. but it’s ok, it makes me special, not doing something later than everyone else. plus mrs key likes me so that’s always a plus. orchestra seems ok, though i feel very out of place with all the sophmores, freshmen, & jrs. theresa’s there tho and we’re good friends, so it’s cool. that english guy who always wears the manchester shirt is in that orch too, though i dont know him hardly at all. physics looks like it wont be an easy class.. i’ll have to work… *groan*. i feel really out of place in that class since there’s only 4 seniors but it’s more of a feeling of.. why didnt you do this last year?? the girl i sat next to today seemed fairly nice, and leann (?) a (jr) girl i know from orch last year sits in front of me. frank (alé’s bro) is in there too which just makes me feel all the younger : P. being in a class with your bfs younger brother… hm….

english seems very cool. me, emily, and kathy are all in the same class, with skye, mel, and tri and a whole load of cool people with us. i think i’ll be able to manage that class ok even if it is work. french is scary just cuz.. well.. i’ve forgotten almost all the french i’ve taken. plus i’m walking into this little clique that’s gone through french together for the last 2 years.. so they’re kinda looking at me like.. ‘wtf are you doing here, girl?’ calculus looks hard. it might not look so hard if there werent so many freaking people in the class!! like 40 or something. god. too many.. far too many. i’d switch class periods if i could.. but i cant.. argh!! i hope everyone drops. cept me. and kathy. and maybe cool people like mel and tri. yea. that’s good. i’m afraid my grades will suffer cuz of sheer volume.. i’m not a math wizz in the best conditions : ( . mr bond seems awesome though. eighth period i have off, but i cant go home cuz my ride is with my sister & two of her friends who live nearby (kelsi peck and mimi bui, tien’s sister) and they, of course, dont have 8th period off. so i went to comp sci and claimed my seat for the fourth year. yuri and matt (god i feel bad for not knowing if that’s his name.. i only went to elementry school with him..) were in there, cuz it’s comp sci 2, and yanchi (sp?) was in there for comp sci 3 i think i might take comp sci 4 indep study during that class.. could be a laugh, and it’d mean i still had my comp sci account X D

so yea. i would be looking forwards to calc so much more if it wasnt for the overflowing class. it’s really bugging me in the back of my head. last year in precalc we had a little class and i really think that’s part of why i did so well for the first time in a long time. i guess i do better in smaller learning environments. well hey! there’s a step towards where i’ll go to college. ok well that’s my required college step this week.. : P

but i donno… school is such a boring road after such an exciting summer.. a jump from extremes.. a flat path compared to the ups and downs, the excitement and unexpectedness that makes summer all that it is. on the way home i was thinking.. ‘what now?’ for the normal excitements of summer have gone, and i cant even really look forwards to seeing my friends so much, since that landmark has been passed. now it’s just.. back to work. but i donno. i can look forwards to seeing alé whenever he comes down, and to whatever weekend mischiefs might arise with the gang. plus there’s things like HOMECOMING which is september 5th for those of you blessed enough not to have to listen to mr jones ramblings anymore (and those of you who though you are supposed to, dont). so hey sr people, come back for homecoming. chances of me being on the hc court are slim, so i cant promise the trinity outfit. but hey it’ll be like the first reunion or somethin. i’d tell you all to come back and vote, but that’s next week so that’s kinda pointless since most of you will be far too far away by then to come back just to vote.

so but yea. come back for homecoming. prolly the group that’s here is gonna do something weird cuz there’s no point in not making an impression in some disturbing way.

listening to daft punk makes me think of summer! argh. memories of driving around in alé’s car to see cool people and movies, and go to lans, drew’s movie nights, and filming in the movie.

OMFG can you BELIEVE that quakecon ended YESTERDAY?????? it seems like a lifetime away!!! i’m still getting over it.

so yea. that’s about all thats in my head today. i’ll prolly post again later tonight. oh yea.. and i’ll post the pics kk&e; and i took on friday night online sometime.. when i’m not so lazy.. : P
