You Tell 'e Mage!

I hate when I sit next to Gretchen in the theater. She wants to talk the whole time. Remind me to tell you about the time Mom was yelled at in the theater. (it's a good story)

River @ Dawn

I love this song so much! I've been kinda' obsessed. (doesn't her hair look like G's?)

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
oh oh oh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She'll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

And I’ll be wearing white when I come into your kingdom
I’m as green as the ring on my little cold finger
I’ve never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There’s a boy here in town says he’ll love me forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no I’ll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I’m a goner

And maybe then you’ll hear the words I been singin’
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin’

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
oh oh

The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep ‘em in your pocket
Save them for a time when your really gonna need 'em oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls

Deserved It!

Please click me if I'm not moving.
Isn't this just amazing? This totally deserved to win best animated feature last night. I'm sure glad it did!


Okay, so this is really getting on my nerves. I would totally love to just go around to all the boys in school and shake them down and see if they know anything about my Serenade. But then I don't want to because then I'll come off as being obsessed with this thing, and it's not like I'm boy crazy (believe me I can give you a list of who is) but I would like the know so I can thank them properly. I really enjoyed it a lot!

Any who, back to the list of mine.
-Andrew (asked - No)
-Evan (asked - I still don't know)
-Grant -The really tall one- (haven't - he gave me gum in History and is always trying to talk to me)
-David (Courtney you should ask him because I haven't)
-Jake (probs not, I really haven't seen him this year except when he steals my lunch box, plus he has a GF)
-Blue eyed dude (if only, right Ragan? But he has a GF)
-Guy who sits in front of me in Math (I think he's just being polite to me, that and he's not very good at Math so we talk a lot)
Then we come to video
-Matt (he's WAY to shy to do something like this)
-Peter (Never seen him before this semester and I already know I hate him, plus he really doesn't know who sent it to me, even though he says he does.)
-AJ (Courtney this is who I was talking about. What's with the flirty texts? Not saying you should stop them, but could you be my valentine?)

Wow...I just totally committed social suicide...then again AJ first read this blog when I posted the lesbian pictures...gooood times.

Mumford & Sons

This past Friday my family went out to a movie, but we were an hour and fifteen minutes early, so we decided to stop over at target instead of hanging around the movie theater.

Dad made a b-line for the music section as Mom, G, and I tagged along, stoping only to lay down in some outdoor chairs. As we chilled, being all hip in the music section, Mom found the Grammy section and announced that she was going to get the Mumford and Sons cd, because (as she put it) "They're supposed to be good."
Now, I knew the songs on the cd, and Mom isn't one for swearing (or unintelligent language as she calls it) so the song 'Little Lion Man' (which is the BEST) wasn't going to fly in Mom's world.

Mouth open I asked Mom if she had even heard them play before. "Yea. Think they played at the Grammy's. One of them has a bald head right?"

Oh, god.

We played the cd in the car, but it was too loud that Mom didn't catch the swear words (yea...not sure how she didn't) and so it wasn't until Saturday morning (before my ACT prep-class) that Dad asked me why Mom had gotten the cd. He said he was surprised that I had let her buy the explicit one. So, I ended the whole thing by playing Mom 'Little lion Boy' so she could hear the chorus.

Cuando Me Enamoro

Tomorrow I have a spanish quiz thing where we have to listen to a song in spanish and then write about it. It's kinda' hard, not gonna' lie, but I'm still not gonna' study.
As a tribute, I'm listening to Enrique Iglesias.

The Return of R&T

These past few weeks I've been craving a certain TV show. (Remember? 1 and 2)
We just started watching the episodes again yesterday. Oh, how I missed you!

Tut, Tut

On Friday during current events in history (where all students share an event each day) someone talked about the King Tut exhibit at the Minnesota Science exhibit opening up this weekend. I was interested and ended up writing it down in my assignment notebook.

Then later that night I told Gretchen and Mom about it, they were immediately on the computer check out the times for Saturday. Waking up the next morning Mom asked if I wanted to go. Duh! I thought. I was the one to tell you, of course I want to go! I invited you!

During the tour of the museum area, I came across a statue of a women Pharaoh (who's name I can't remember) who was on her knees with a basket on her lap as an offering to the gods. I then noticed out of the corner of my eye a couple who was in my group giggling quietly to themselves.

I looked back at the statue then at the couple looking at it and back again. The description said that the ball looking thing on her lap was a basket so I hadn't looked at it as anything else. But if you were to think of the basket as a head, it looked like a sexual act that i'm 100% sure the couple was thinking about.

They were odd, Gretchen was freaked out by them because they followed her around the entire afternoon. They both must be attracted to curly blonds.

Knuckle Sandwich

Yesterday Mom, Gretchen and I went out to eat at Punch! a pizza restaurant on Grand Ave. which is to die for. It's super thin pizza cooked in 800 degree wood oven. Everything originated from Naples, Italy and uses the best produce for the pizza. The techniques haven't changed for centuries.
I love it, we don't go as often as I wish, but it's kinda' nice to have a fun and different place to go unlike Woodbury's wide variety. What's sad is Gretchen doesn't like it at all. She claims she can't taste anything, which it weird considering it's a taste i've never encountered in any other pizza place.
Mom says every seven years your taste buds change, I guess that's why Gretchen has been so picky about her food lately.

I Spy HP!

Okay, I know this is long in coming, but ever since the 100 movies thing I haven't gotten back into my grove. So, I've decided to just force myself to blog until it becomes fun again. (yea, not a good idea for most things, relationships, but it's okay in this setting)

I watched the Grammys off and on last Sunday and I noticed a little something on Eminem's neck as he gave his type of acceptance speech, boxers and all.
Our little 9th grade drop out is a Harry Potter fan. Here he is sporting a Hallows necklace. (and for thoes who don't know or just forgot)
Here would be an up close picture of the necklace. With all of the three things a wizard/witch would need to be the master of death. The stone to resurrect people, the cloak to sneak into places, and the wand to be un beatable. Wizards or witches would wear it so that others on the journey would know they are on the same side and talk about their revelations they have had.

Any who, I thought it was funny that he had a necklace similar to the master of death one.

To My Fan!

Hey, this is for you Sonia. It might have taken a bit, but I think it turned out pretty good.

Re: I think not!

No joke, we were talking about the fact that vampires have no blood yet Edward could get Bell pregnant in the fourth book today during fifth hour FST.
That class has suddenly gotten so much more interesting to me.

Calm Down Chick

This past Friday I saw Black Swan with my dad and sister.  Okay, it's not a weird as you think. I have a good relationship with my parents so it wasn't creepy. Well, to be with my dad, now the movie is another story.

I can totally see why Natalie Portman was nominated for best actress, she did an amazing job. Everyone was casted really well. Sure, there were some interesting scenes, but that's what ties the amazing movie together.

It was kinda' funny because Gretchen was talking the entire time, the past two Friday's I've sat next to her in the theater and all she does is talk. During the lesbian scene Gretchen (who was sitting on her knees) leaned over to Dad (who was sitting next to me) and said, "Haha, Dad." Dad was totally cool, but Gretchen just had to make that comment. Then during the puking part it was really quite in the theater and Gretchen didn't want to hear or see that part so she plugged her ears, closed her eyes and started humming really loud. I tried to tell her to stop but ended up having to elbow her to quiet her down.

In all it was a very funny experience, Gretchen is more like Mom then she cares to admit. But mom's movie theater story is for another time.

Britney Got It Right

Three is a charm
Two is not the same
I don't see the harm
So are you game?
*yea, you don't want a picture for this*

Every morning and every afternoon when I got to my locker I see this couple who have a locker on the other side of my locker. That means, that every time I look up I am face to face with them.

Being a couple means they share a little PDA, and it wasn't until recently that I noticed they are both looking at me while they share salvia. And It's not like I'm a perv or that I even look that often (I prefer not to hurl) I think they both enjoy looking at me, like it turns them on or something.

So, I guess I'm going to be engaging in some Britney Spears type of action soon...wahoo...

Adolf Hit-

In the middle of writing down Adolf Hitler's name it was brought to my attention that a group of girls were wanting to serenade me.

I proceeded to sit on a stool in the middle of my U.S. history class as Mary Swanson sang "My Life Would Suck Without You" to me.

I still don't know who sent it to me. I've ruled out the following people.

-Janine (anyone from 3ed hour)

If I missed anyone who you know didn't do it then please comment! (this is making me crazy, I'm gonna' be very embarrassed if someone is just doing this as a joke) I'll keep you posted.

A La Meghan

So, any look good to you?

Take It All Off

No longer is Meghan the only person who I have stolen a piece of clothing from, Sonia is now also on that list. (The list is invisible.)

Yesterday at the end of Spanish I walked over to Meghan and Sonia (Who are partners! Not fair!) and was told by Sonia that she would like to borrow my sweatshirt some time, then somehow we got the idea that we should switch sweatshirts. I was serious, and wanted to do it, but Sonia wasn't so comfortable ripping off a piece of clothing in the middle of the classroom or in the middle of the hallway.

*Picture* [note: don't google image switching shirts, it's just a lot of drunk people]

Fast forward to fourth hour, which is English, and we are given a work day. I proceed to seduce Sonia into taking off her sweatshirt. Finally I take mine off and hand it to her, then she takes her's off and hands it to me. Then we both put the other's sweatshirt on. I'm sure I gave Evan a good show (right Sonia!)

No, we both had long sleeve shirts on (or two in Sonia's case) and it really wasn't all that weird. And now were in the middle of holding each others sweatshirts for ransom. Not quite sure what I want from Sonia yet, i'll keep you posted.

Por Favor?

Hey there Spanish speaking friends! I would be so very glad if you read over my soap opera review and just made sure I'm making sense. Now, I haven't really gone through this in detail, so there might be a few stupid mistakes! Lo siento!
Eva Luna (cap 2)
Personas importantes:
Eva Gonzáles: Alta, pelo muy largo y café. Ella es muy bonita y una buena persona.
Alicia Gonzáles: Hermana de Eva. Ella es bonita y comó Eva. Ella es muy emocional.
Daniel Villanveva: Una hombre muy guapo y rico. Daniel le gusta mucho Eva.
Leonardo Arismend: Amigo de Daniel. Es Guapo y rico, tambien le gusta mucho Eva. Leonardo no le gusta mucho Daniel. El es una muy mal persona.
Un Resumen:
Eva y su Papá fue a caminaron, el carro golpeó Papá. Papá muerto. Eva y Alicia eran muy triste durante el funeral. Eva prometaba venganza a la persona en el carro. 
Leonardo era la persona en el carro. Leonardo y Daniel coquetearon con Eva. Eva rechazó primero Leonardo y entonces Daniel. Daniel rescató a Eva cuando ella se cayó. Compartieron un intimo momento. Hay un problema, Daniel es comprometido a Victoria. (Victoria es una chica que gusta mucho dinero, no Daniel)
Leonardo vendó Daniel el carro. (el que mató a Papá). Leonardo contrata a Eva para limpiar y cocinar. Daniel y Eva reunirse de nuevo en la casa de Leonardo.
Opinion y Predicción:
Me gusta Eva Luna, hay mucho guapo hombres, pero no me gusta la musica. Yo creo que Eva y Daniel se enamora. Victoria y Leonardo no le gusta mucho. Eva verá el carro de Daniel. Se recordará el coche por Eva. Eva sacará a vengarse.

I hope there is some way I can put a picture of two on my 'blog post'. It kinda' looks like a sorry excuse for a blog.

Not a Community, a Family

Meghan recently did a post on her Thursday night line up of TV. Now I don't really watch a lot of TV in one sitting (due to the two hour rule in our house that I really only follow) but this weekend I spent all of Saturday in my room watching the first season of Community. Season two makes a lot more sense now that I know what went on during season one. Like that Jeff is/was a lawyer.
I should have learned after watching Heroes in reverse order to just start from the very beginning. This happened with Eureka too, I tend to do a lot of Wikipedia research when starting a new show. I really like that they took Spanish because I could understand what they were saying (like the rap) and that Señor Chang really wasn't that good at Spanish.

How Adorable!

This post will talk about this post and this post.
click on me! I move!
Okay, so I got a cat calendar for 2011. I went into Border's a weekend ago with my mind set on purchasing a cat calendar. To my surprise they were $4.99. What a deal, but then again it was almost February. I was able to find a good calendar, that doesn't seem creepy, but it's not quite as cool as my yoga cat calendar of 2010. You can look at the 2011 calendar here.
I don't move....sorry :(
I'm gonna' make this my thing. To get a cat calendar every year, I think it's better then getting 12 cats. Am I right? (I'm good with my two)
