Turkey and Fair

So right now my dad is in the kitchen making Turkey. And Mashed potatoes and stuffing and there is pumpkin pie to be had as well. He was so sad not to have gotten a chance to make Thanksgiving Dinner on Thanksgiving that now we're having it again. So I'm sitting here telling you all about it instead of doing my homework like I'm supposed to. I have three projects that I haven't started and things to do for senior project, Literary Magazine, and the plays I'm in. Yeah, two of them. I pretend to be annoyed with all the stuff I got myself into, but I really love it

Today was school's Winter Fair. It was adorable!!! They had shops set up all throughout the grade school and games for the little kids including a cookie house, fishing, a fairy house, the playground, a really cute puppet show, and just overall awesomeness and excitement. I did all the little kid stuff that I'm not supposed to do because I'm a big kid now. It was fun. Then there was choir. Choir performed in one of the side rooms and it was really fun. I kind of wanted to punch my director in the face, but that's beside the point.

The weather's getting colder and I heard a rumor of a freak snowstorm here in San Fran, so I'm kind of excited. My friends back in Jersey are all probably going to have a snow day tomorrow and for that I am extremely jealous. Anyone else who has snow right now, send some of it my way and I will be eternally grateful.

Well, off to make green bean casaroll and have Trevor be a welcome distraction from homework.

So much to do so much to say..

I've been going craft crazy this week. It seems like very person I know has a birthday near the end of October. I know it can't actually be every single person, but I sure darn feels like it. I have been trying very hard to no procrastinate this week or at least for my procrastination not to take place on the computer. Yeah, I don't know about great, but it's going okay. The amount of time reading fanfiction and Cracked.com articles has significantly decreased, so I guess that's a plus. I'm also really glad that Stumble Upon isn't compatible with Chrome. It makes life so much easier.

Speaking of procrastination, because of it I have the coolest new shoes ever. They're not actually new per say, but about three years old that I got for a performance I was in. Plain white Keds that I finally dressed up a bit. One has a guy floating up to the sky with a balloon. The other has a fire breathing dragon on it. I'm really happy with how they came out. Plus, my new Vans finally came so I actually have two "new" pairs of shoes.

I'm so excited for Monday. Seriously, so excited. *does a happy dance* And it's not even to do with the shoes. Okay, it's a little to do with the shoes, but mostly not to do with the shoes.

Writer's Block: Confessions of a couch potato

What is the longest uninterrupted period of time you've ever watched TV? Were you alone or with a friend/partner? Do you tend to watch more TV when you're happy, depressed, or simply bored?

Last week I spent all afternoon watching 15 episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show on Hulu.com. That's probably a record or close to it. I've also watched obsene amounts of JAG, West Wing or Studio 60 at a time, but probably the record is Dick Van Dyke.

I like you Mary, You've got Spunk.

So today I had a Drama class with my Senior class. We were doing this skit where we had two people standing up there and we gave then Superhero names. So I shout out, "Peripheral Vision Man" from Studio 60. The one guy literally takes it and runs with it. Looking off into the distance and shouting how they need to save the cat from out of the tree and pointing over his shoulder. It was so much fun!

Then this afternoon I went to see the Wizard of Oz 70th anniversary edition. O.M.G. It was phenomenal. Of course it was the same story, and the same everything, it was just really exciting to be seeing it all over again and on the big screen. It's been a really long time since I saw it and there were a few things I had forgotten. It's still a great movie and probably one of my all time favorites ever. Love, love, love. Oh, and I never got how that winged monkeys were so creepy. Did you guys read the book? Didn't you know they were coming?

The other exciting thing is that I just figured out how many tv shows on DVD I have. I didn't know that I had 15. This is of course including the newest additions. Studio 60 for my birthday. Two seasons of The Nanny from my friend, and season 1 of The Mary Tyler Moore Show because it was only 20 dollars. TMTMS is one of my new favorites. I even convinced my friend to buy it for herself. It makes me sad though that there's literally nothing about it. All I've found is a little site that had some behind the scenes pictures and episode summaries. NO FANFICTION! Can you believe it? Not even on FF.net! It's such a great show. And it has the favorite relationship that never happens too! Well, I guess there's not all THAT much tension and what-not, but I rather like to think of Mary/Lou. Though I suppose that may just be me.

buses and school

I really don't know what to say about lately. There are some days when i feel like everything is going right. Then the next day everything will go wrong. That and I have a nasty habit of watching my bus roll away as soon as I am in sight of the bus stop. It's slightly annoying. Today was especially bad. I got off the bus about five stops early and almost beat the bus to my train station. It was so packed. And a wheelchair was getting off. Why would I want to deal with that when I could just walk. Plus walking is nicer. And healthier.

This week is slightly odd. Seniors have calculus, then drama some days, or senior essay work other days. Today was probably the weirdest out of all the days because they pretty much wouldn't let us leave, but didn't give us much to do. it wound up being great for me. Because facebook was blocked I got TONS of college app stuff done. I can't wait to be over with that.

The Tortise and the Hair

I got my hair cut today. It's a pretty interesting story actually, because the only reason I got a haircut is because someone took Taylor's seat in my first class. He was playing with his scissors that he had because of a sewing class we have this afternoon. It went something like this:
Me: Taylor, you shouldn't be cutting things other than fabric with fabric scissors, it will dull the blade.
Taylor: But these aren't fabric scissors, they're regular scissors, they're just really sharp so they work on fabric too. Watch, I can cut paper. And tissue. And your hair... can I cut your hair?
Me: Not right now.
Taylor: *sadface*
Me: You can cut it at lunch though.

So for the rest of the morning there were people telling me that I shouldn't do it because Taylor dosen't know what he's doing (which I found out later was the real truth compared to what he was saying that he'd cut SO many people's hair before).

Then we got to lunch and we went out by the parking lot and he cut my hair. There's actually about two inches cut off and my mom didn't really notice. I really like it. And Taylor keeps saying that it's not done yet, and he has to finish cutting the back because the layers aren't right or something. But I think it looks great. Pictures under the cut to protect any with dial-up. (p.s. does dial-up even exist anymore?) Also under the cut: my birthday crown per-request.

Glee tonight!

The Birthday Post

Birthday so far has been pretty great. I spent a half hour about two weeks ago making myself a birthday crown using a box of cheese crackers, tinfoil, and tape. I think it's gorgeous. Of course, my sister disagrees, but we don't really care about her. I was considering wearing it on Friday, but it being September 11 it didn't feel appropriate. (Not that anyone at school actually acknowledged that it was 9/11, but I digress.)

I wore the crown this morning to church where I had to stand on a chair and the youth group sang Happy Birthday (BOOM-ching-Cha Cha Cha!). I opened presents at lunch and the one I'm most excited about is The complete series of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. IT'S SOOO PRETTY!! Plus, now I have noise-canceling headphones to watch it uninterrupted. I can watch JAG with them now too. Super excited.

Tonight I got to choose dinner--gorgonzola and ricotta risotto and molten chocolate cake!

mary poppins-mary/bert-jolly holiday

Oh, it's a Jolly Holiday

The first week of school has been pretty good. I'm taking this amazing elective class with my favorite teacher that's basicaly going to be about movies. It's great. I'm not sure how open to suggestions she is, but I'm difinately going to be suggesting. Oh, and it may include tv. !!!!!!! A dream come true. Then there's a writing class where every free write we've done so far has wound up with me talking about a tv show or sophomore year of high school. *shudder* Though I suppose that that's reasonable takeing into consideration what I know about them now. Oh nevermind.

I'm still sort of lamenting that I can't be a normal person with normal friendships with people my own age. My best friends are all sophomores and college kids and grown ups. I guess I just don't understand why age differce is always considered such a big thing to people. Or maybe it isn't and it's just a thing to me. Ahh, well.

Spent all of Saturday watching tv. Mostly The Nanny, then I burned through a whole disk of JAG. I LOVE harm/mac.

Yesterday I went to a movie with my youth group. We went to see a sing-along version of Mary Poppins (hence the Mary/Bert icon). I forgot how awesome that movie was until yesterday. I spent the rest of the day yesterday reading fanfiction for it, and looking up videos on youtube. I know, slightly lame. But still ridiculously fun for the dork I am.

premire season

 I was just makeing a list of the tv shows I plan on following this year, and wanted to see where pther people were on the list and if there was anything I'm missing.  I'll go by day and show because I'm a dork like that.  Any time slot that's not listed I don't have a show for yet.

8:00 p.m. The Amazing Race --  I don't really fandom this show, but it's kind of a family thing that we all watch.
10:00p.m. Cold Case --  I'm still toying with this one because I don't know weather it's always going to be on at 10 or just is because I think Amazing Race has a two hour premire.  But it's a great show.


8:00 p.m. NCIS -- Do I really need to explain this?
10:00p.m. The Good Wife -- I'm kind of excited for this one.  It has Julianna Margulies being a lawyer again after her stink in Cantubery's Law which was an amazing show that no one really paid attention to because of the writers strike at the time.  It had an unfortunate airtime and premire season and didn't make it.  But I love her and can't wait for the premire.

9:00 p.m. Glee/Criminal Minds -- I'm kind of debating about this time slot because it seems to be the only one in my mind compeating with two shows.  I'll probably start with Glee because it's new, I loved the first episode and there's a few people at school who will watch it with me, but I'm definately keeping Criminal Minds on as well.

8:00 p.m. Bones -- I can't wait to see what they do with this.  I mean, the finale was phenomenal if you ask me, even with the endding.  I'm excited.
9:30 p.m. 30 Rock -- I know it dosen't premire for a while, but whatever.  This show is amazing.  End of story.
10:00p.m. The Mentalist -- Love this show.  I can't wait to see if they stick with the red theme this season or do a different color or what.
Then there's this new show, Flash Forward that I don't have a time slot for, but looks interesting.


11:30 p.m. Saturday Night Live -- If I can manage to keep myself up this late, I'm watching SNL.  It really needs to be a part of my television education.

And then we have Chuck.  Of which I am overjoyed it got renewed, but am disapointed that we have to wait til mid-season to see.  Whatever, still excited because that finale was epic.

the fangirl squee-fear it

"I'll be glad when school starts"

So justspaz, with her epicly long summer post inspired me to make my own. Considering that I start school stuff on Tuesday today's as good a day as any to get all my summer stuff out there. So here goes...

July 5th was my first day of camp. The first week was a canoeing and backpacking trip that can basically be summed up in one quote from my friend Marina, "Hey Bean, if I fall off the cliff would that be an automatic fail?" The answer of course was yes. Other than that week one was the creator of so many you-had-to-be-there type jokes it's a little ridiculous. We pretended we were the cast of That 70's Show and went around the circle saying random crap. We went through an amazing amount of riddles and just overall had a great time.

The second and third weeks were filled with lessons on how to deal with misbehaving children, how to recognize abuse, and how to be an overall awesome camp counselor. We planned activities and lessons for little kids classes and it was overall amazing.

The fourth week was probably the most interesting of all. I think I cried every single day because I was so stressed. I was finishing assignments that were epicly late, but I got it all done. I did more Sailing and ropes course elements that I thought were possible in a week. The best part of week four was having my own cabin of ten-year-olds. For 4 days I was totally in charge of them. It was exhausting, it was terrifiying, but most of all it was immensely exciting. It's amazing how they were looking up to me and even more amazing how many questions they asked. Sometimes they asked reasonable questions, but sometimes they were just random. So then on Friday I graduated the program that makes me a counselor now. So next year I will be there for 8 weeks and I will have all the exhaustion and adoration that was my last week this year for at lest five of those weeks. I can't wait!!

And so cam the last day of camp where I swore to my friends that we would see each other over the year.  When I literally begged and cried asking my mom to let me stay, and I really do with she would have let me, buuut Mom and I had to drive our car from New Jersey to California since we live in San Francisco now.  So we drove.  I thought it was going to be horribly awkward, but it wasn't so bad.  We stopped in Chicago where I visited the college that I think I'm going to go to, then my Uncle came out of nowhere and practically attacked me.  It was so great to see him since it's probably been three years since I've seen him.  So we walked around Chicago, then we went and ate a whole pizza just between the two of us.  Best day ever.

And this post is getting a little long soo...

Follow the dancing cake...Collapse )
