Don't Mock!

One of my favorite lines from Gilmore Girls (well, one of the many) is when Logan tells Rory to make a Pro-Con list about getting back together with him, she then responds by saying, "Don't mock the Pro-Con list!" Logan then smiles and says, "I'm not, in fact I think it will come out in my favor."

Thus, the title. Though I'm not a confident as Logan. I have a predicament.
Should I ask for a Nook (the Brans and Noble version of a kindle) for Christmas? What do you think about the e-books? Would you use them? Do you think I would?

The Scottish Play

If you have had any experience with any type of play, especially Shakespearian, you would know you're supposed to say "break a leg" instead of "good luck" and you'll especially know about the curse of the Scottish Play. Don't know what I'm talking about? Not refined? Never been in a theater? Just plain dumb? Well the Scottish Play is....Macbeth. Great, now I've cursed myself.

True, all I have tomorrow is a chemistry test and an English poetry presentation, so no acting involved, but I'ed like to do what I can to keep my luck up.

I guess that means I'll be wearing my lucky underwear.

The Morning After

I was pleasantly surprised at the movie this morning. It turned out to be even better then I could imagine, I was a little worried that I had built it up too much. True, it wan't exactly like the book, but then again what movie is? I think with the medium (being film) and the story they had to work with they did a great job.

I dressed up as Dumbledore (beard, hat, robe, half-moon glasses, and wand) and I ended up hugging a "Hermione", "Dobby" (with S.P.E.W. badge) and I think a group of quidditch players. Not to mention the loads of people who whispered Dumbledore  as they walked by me. Yes, thanks for pointing out the obvious.

Unicorn Hair

No matter where I go I can't get away from it. I told myself that I would be calm today and not be totally obsessed with Harry Potter. I would refrain from asking people if they are going to to the opening. I would not tell people about what I had read the night before, or the fact that I stayed up way to late. No, I wasn't going to do it. In fact, I was doing very well until math. Ragan had brought the book with her to school and I'm not off when I say that she really didn't get any work done today. Even during our math review her eyeballs were glued to the pages. At least it's a healthy addiction, better then meth or pot or (insert you favorite addiction here).

T Minus Thursday

Mostly because of the movie coming out on Thursday/Friday is why this post is being posted, but it's also because Harry Potter is cool, and no one can tell me otherwise. (and so is Ginny, via above) I made Hannah a flow chart for the fourth, fifth, and sixth movies today, It was really fun and nice to go over them all so I'll remember them while watching the first seventh one. I'm super excited. I'm debating about dressing up, but as who? (perhaps Ginny? I really don't look like any...) Ragan and I are lending her the movies so she won't be as deprived. Poor Hannah.

A Little Drive

It all started with the simple question: Can I take the long way home?

Then Courtney and I ended up screaming (and in Courtney's case, swearing) and then zooming off when we came across a possum.

I totally thought it was a cat. "Oh, cute litt- OH MY GOD! IT'S A POSSUM! GO! GO! I'M CLOSING MY EYES, BUT DON'T CLOSE YOURS COURTNEY! AHHHHH! OH MY GOD!"

Now don't you feel like you were there with us?


This Saturday I might be going to my first ever concert. Yep, I'm 16 and have never been to a concert. Well, a real concert, I don't think Lori Line and her Christmas concerts count. The concert is for Basshunter (swedish singer of DotA and Boten Ann) and is at the Epic Event center downtown Minneapolis. Dad will be going with me (if he gives the okay to go), which won't really rain on my parade because it's Basshunter and that's all I'll be focusing on.
In other news, I need to talk with Sonia. What's up with the Harry Potter thing? I want to go and Mom says it's fine so I need details yo!
I heard Christina will soon be joining our ranks of bloggers. She want's Sonia to help her with starting it, but at this rate it won't be anytime soon. Get your rear in gear Sonia!

Blogging with no structure after the past 100 days of movies is a bit odd. It may take me a bit to get back into the grove, but I'll be back to my old self and posting every day.
Seems like a me and Meghan type of thing <3

Number 1

"Oh, he's very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude." - Grace

My most favorite movie of all time is Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Now, I haven't been counting down in order of how I like the movie, but I just happened to hove my favorite movie as number one. Ah, Ferris, how I love thee! And I guess that's that. Number 100 to 1.

Number 2

"I like smart girls. That's why I married your mama. Well, that and I knocked her up." - Earl

I think being a roller derby girl would be cool. True, I would be eaten alive, but maybe I can become physically stronger then Gretchen...that's a big maybe. I never got to see Whip It in theaters, but I think Drew Berrymore did a good job with her directing debut.

"Roz, my tender, oozing blossom, you're looking fabulous today." - Mike

We were talking about the upcoming sequel to Monsters Inc. today in Math. Apparently not everyone is as excited as I am. This movie is funny, the way the transferred everything over into the monsters world compared to the human world. Man, if I were a kid I'd just hop on over to the monster side and give them a real scare! (How da like me now!)

"I shouldn't have seen that." - Stan

Gretchen and I watched this movie this summer. Aside from the really long opening credits, The Back Up Plan is a really good movie. Personally the opening credits are my favorite part, because the way a movie starts sets the whole mood, it's just like a book, if the first page is crap then the rest of the book is too, same logic with movies.

Number 5

"Don't worry, dear. Suicide is not in his repertoire. He's far too fond of himself for that." - Dr. Watson

Ah, the lovely couple. I read some of the books before watching Sherlock Holmes, it was all quite funny. They have speedy back and fourths and these two (Holmes and Watson) can sometimes be very dumb about certain things that Irene Adler clues them in on. I recommend you watching it, but you'll probably have to re-watch it a few times to fully understand the theory.

How About Red? Silver?


Number 6

"John, get ready to have some kids!" - Mary

Gretchen disagrees with my love of Wall-E, but who can't love robot romance? Mom just recently watched this for her first time (yea, it's sad) and at the end she was freaking out because...well I guess you just have to watch it!
