Half the perfect world

July 12, 2009

Today was another day much like others recently past. I watched part of “Gone With the Wind,” read part of Gone With the Wind, watched a Twilight Zone episode, finished making plans for the Harry Potter movie premiere, watched a minute more of “Goodbye, Mr. Chips,” knit and then un-knit various hypothetical projects, cleaned the bathroom, and then read Harry Potter fanfiction for the remaining time. That was my day.

So this is what it’s like to go places

July 11, 2009

Today was a strange day, in that it was fairly… dare I say normal? I woke up after noon, a typical teenage thing to do.

Then I watched part of “For Keeps,” which is decidedly normal, for me, at least, and next I finished re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and knit two little bracelets for Lydia.

I befriended two people on facebook today who I was friends with in elementary school. That was moderately strange.

Around five something, the parentals, me, Clara, Benny, Zinnia, and Lydia went out. Firstly we went to this pizza place very far away that my father really loves.

Next, we went to the graveyard where F. Scott Fitzgerald is buried, and I left a piece of paper on his gravestone where others had left pennies, pens, and the like. The piece of paper was folded many times and is one that I found near the library and had been keeping for a few weeks. It had an order for a sandwich place on it.

After visiting there, we went to a big playground. By this time it was getting very dark, and before long Benny accidentally (don’t ask me…) punched my mother in the face, thus doing something or other to her glasses that made them then unusable. So, then we left, and on the way home we picked up mistake bags from an ice cream place (six mistaken ice cream orders of the day in one convenient paper bag). We’ll eat them tomorrow, I suppose.

Oh, and Rachel and I began making plans for the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince premiere! I am SO excited!!!

Here is a picture I found online of the very same grave I visited (naturally, he only has one grave):

My sister, Clara, had a party last night, and so I planned to write up yesterday’s post AFTER the fact, but as it turned out our computer had overheated and had to stay off all night. So, there’s my excuse.

Yesterday I was still dizzy and my leg was still sore, but I am positive that it has been getting better.

So, yesterday I watched a variety of movies, both good and bad and indifferent. My favorites were a documentary on movies in 1939 and the hour I watched of a movie called “Goodbye, Mr. Chips,” which was, incidentally, made in 1939. Actually, I watched it because I saw it in the said documentary, and I remembered that it was on the On Demand free movies section of our television, if that makes sense.

I also watched an hour of the first Pokemon movie, because I haven’t seen it in awhile. I never realized how creepy Mewtoo is. Well, I did, but he’s a LOT creepier than I remember. Additionally, I watched a movie we got on Netflix called Hotel for Dogs.

All online video sites were not working yesterday on my computer, so I lost my vow to watch the Harry Potter musical, and I also didn’t get a chance to watch “For Keeps” on Netflix Instant.

Yesterday, I knitted the “JIM!” wristband I believe I spoke of yesterday. It’s black and the letters are light blue. I also knitted a wristband with a pocket on it, so I can wear it and use it as a pocket for holding my cellphone. (I wear skirts pretty much every day, and none of them have pockets, unfortunately. it’s much easier to reach into a pocket than search through a bag for my phone, as it always seems to get buried under everything.)

I’ve stayed up until after 1 am for the past two nights (1:11 and 1:12 respectively). What have I been doing? Reading. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The thing I love about the Harry Potter series is that when I re-read a book, I still can’t wait to find out what happens next, even if I’ve read it X many times before.

Awash with weariness and the wonders of the wallaby

July 8, 2009

The title was merely a way of using using a minimum of three W’s in the title. A little challenge, if you will. Pay no mind.

As I mentioned in this morning’s post, I woke up feeling pretty sick. It hasn’t gotten much better, possibly worse. The dizziness, especially, has been horrible. I can’t turn my head too quickly or it gets even more awful.

Speaking of awful, my motherly unit was in a dreadful mood today, meaning I couldn’t just lay down and relax to get over my sickness. I found that she was yelling at the silliest of things, and not seeing any forms of reason.

Nevertheless, I did manage to get some bits and pieces of stuff over with. Never mind,that’s a horrid way of describing that I DID end up doing a few things today. I’ll just go with that.

So, I watched about forty-five minutes of Funny About Love, and I played Star Trek Uno with Clara and Emma, and I read about a hundred and fifty pages of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (I figured I might as well pick up again with re-reading it like I meant to months ago). I’m using the Hedwig bookmark I got yesterday, which is exciting. I almost look forward to being interrupted from reading, just so that I can put the bookmark in and look up sternly.

Oh, also, I began a pair of wrist warmers meant to look like a pair Rose wore in a particular Doctor Who episode. It’s a pretty fine gauge, though, so they’re boring me and I might rip it all out to start something else.

Speaking of nothing specifically, aren’t wallabies cute? Here’s a picture of an orphaned wallaby named Skippy with an umbrella. I do not know the connection:

And, because I’m ridiculously in love with him, here’s a picture of a young Albert Einstein:

Wallie asked me if I was going to blog about the fact that I have no homework today, and I said yes; therefore, I am.

September 11, 2008

So, yeah, I have no homework today.  That is partly because I did today’s homework in school and partly because I stayed up late last night to get my AP Euro outline done.  I do not want to spend my weekend doing that.  Thursdays tend to be my free day in the sense of homework, and I am game with that.

For the most part, my classes are going well.  AP Euro is tough, but that was to be expected.

I am looking forward to many things occurring in the future.  For example,

1.) Paper Towns release (!!!)
2.) NaNoWriMo, though I have no ideas as of yet
2.)Twilight movie release (I am sure they will butcher it, but still… it will be nice to get a different view of things)
3.)Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist movie release and to read it… I am still waiting to either borrow the book or check it out from a library, but I am including it because I am sure I will love it once I do
4.)The boots I won on eBay to arrive in the mail (I fell in love with them, told my mother about them, and promptly gave up wishing for them- the next day, my mother bought them for me [!!!] and I was thrilled)
5.)Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie release (I. Can. Not. Wait.)
6.)Every Wednesday Club

Ugh, I have so many knitting projects to finish… I have procrastinated a trillion times twice over…
…headband, cardigan, scarf, mittens, socks, leg warmers… the list never ends…

Something crazy is going on…
Sorry, I just have been having this feeling lately that something ridiculous is going to happen in the near future…

Anyway…

Oh, curse of the evil ellipsis!
Only, kidding, I love you, Ellipsis

Farewell, friends.  I have an evening of mystery ahead of me.
