Now I'm no longer in EvelMath, which is geared to second graders, and I've been moved to Applied Calculus, with the froodiest teacher in the universe: Mr. Dubsky! Yayayayay! ::does a groovy dance:: I think I might end up with a free period, too. ::squeals::

WOFS3 is so amusing. Kell edited the censorship options, so whenever anyone types "God" it comes out "Percy". That never fails to amuse me.

That MSNBC article *really* annoyed me. Has slash suddenly become interchangable with porn? How irritating. Looking through the stories on ff.n, it occurs to me that there are more NC-17 het fics than you could shake a stick at, but does MSNBC care? Obviously not. They blatantly attack Rhysenn and IP, citing information from her website and one of the sexier scenes from her story. While some may find her fics offensive (I personally can't go within 5 miles of some of her stories), it's clear that there are plenty of people that like to read them. She and Cassie have a rather significant fan base on eGroups.

Also, why are they automatically assuming that slash = porn? I recently read the third fic in A'jes' Blue's "Catharsis" trilogy, and it was very tastefully done. More tasteful than you find in the average non-slash novel you find in your local library. (And to think that the "Clan of the Cave Bear" series was on my 7th grade reading list!) It really irritates me when companies make uninformed, sweeping decisions like this. Bah. I hope they print a retraction, but I highly doubt they would.

Hurrah! English class is going to be so nifty! I got Mr. Dumaine, who is the ultimate nifty English teacher. All my Upper School English teachers have been groovy. Of course, Math couldn't be worse. I have Mr. Weinstein, who is amazingly cool (he also teaches C++), but the class is so easy it's painful. Some of the seniors in my class were struggling with information I had mastered in 7th grade. My hand was in the air almost constantly; volunteering for answers. 30 minutes into the class, Mr. Weinstein refused to call on me. I felt like Hermione, only less annoying. Bah. Why on Earth didn't I take Honors Pre-Cal? ::flails::

I hope this is only a rumor, but Sarah Stuart told me that Photography class is going to be hell this year. She spoke of a 10-page research paper on a photographer of our choice. WHAT THE?!? I don't write 10-page papers for academic classes, much less Fine Arts! I'm considering switching to the digital imaging course. You never know, I might be able to get some CG time in. ::frowls:: I wonder how tiresome it would be to tote my Wacom tablet to and from school.

Take the Disney survey!

Fav Disney Movie: Close call between Emperor's New Groove and Mulan
Least Fav Movie: Snow White and the 7 Dwarves. Or maybe The Pagemaster.

Fav Heroine: Mulan. She rocks.
Least Fav Heroine: Cinderella, Snow White, and Wendy. They're so useless.

Fav Hero: Kuzko, from ENG. He's just so delightfully pompous and egotistical. He reminds me of me. If you don't consider Kuzko a hero, then I pick Milo Thatch (Atlantis) because he reminds me of Percy.
Least Fav Hero: Snow White's prince, for the same reason Kell stated: "He had a hard job, let me tell you."

(Other) Fav Character: Mushu, from Mulan, or Abu, from Aladdin.
(Other) Least Fav Character: pass. I guess Cogsworth (B&tB) if you make me choose. Oh! No! The gargoyles from "Hunchback". Those were irritating.

Fav Villain: Gaton, from Beauty and the Beast. He's so amusing.
Least Fav Villain: The evil stepmother/stepsisters from Cinderella. They ruined my childhood, because I thought I was named after an evil stepsister. Later, I found out her name was Drusilla, but still, it was soul-scarring. Other villains I disliked were Scar (Lion King) and the guy from Hunchback.

Fav Song: I rather liked "It's Great to be a God" on principle from "El Dorado", but I also love the music from "The Lion King".
Least Fav Song: "Kiss the Girl" from The Little Mermaid.

Fav Animal Character: Mushu (Mulan) with Abu (Aladdin) as a close second.
Least Fav Animal Characters: Footstool, from Beauty and the Beast. He was annoying.

First Disney Movie You Saw: Cinderella, I believe. I can't remember.
Last Disney Movie You Saw: In the theatre, Atlantis. At home, Mulan.

I had such an odd dream last night. I dreamed that Mrs. Felice just randomly called me one day and told me that we were indeed doing "Mort" and that I had gotten the role of Princess Keli. Of course, I was incredibly confused, because I hadn't auditioned yet. I met five other students (2 girls, 3 boys), all of whom I had never seen before in my life. These were the other actors for the play. One of the girls explained to me that they had unknowingly auditioned when Mrs. Felice asked them to read out loud passages from "The Dictionary of Amorphous Solids". Then I woke up.

My mom and I decided to be impulsive last night. She came into my room with a newspaper, saying "You wanted to see Jurassic Park 3, right?" I nodded affirmatively. "Well there's a showing at the Cinemark in five minutes. Shall we?" she asked. I grinned. Fifteen minutes later, we were in our seats, waiting for the silly previews to be over. We got there just in time! All in all, it was a highly amusing film. The CG was excellent and the plot was amusing. I particularly loved Alan's comment at the end of the movie: "God bless you, Ellie". My alterego especially enjoyed it. Now I've just got to go back and watch the other two!

Oy. I've got some fires to put out. Yesterday, I posted that terrible rant about how fed up I was with Fiction Alley without considering the repercussions. I said things I shouldn't have said and called them names behind their back. Stupid decision. It turns out Phil reads my blog. Now I feel awful, because it turns out that the graphics Taylor made were only temporary placeholders. No one was trying to usurp my position; Phil just needed graphics with the correct size/shape/composition/etc. to put in place when finalizing the AA layout. Ugh, I feel like such a heel. Even worse, I attacked Taylor when she hadn't done anything wrong! She obviously put an enormous amount of work into those graphics, just so she could help Phil in my absence. Ugh, I should never post anything in my weblog before I know the whole story. I should have emailed the other FAMods from the start, calmly stating my stance on the matter, to give them a chance to explain the full story. So if any of you guys are reading this, please consider this a full apology for my actions yesterday. Chalk it up to my crazy teenage judgement.

Woo! I forgot! Yesterday, I wore my Percy Is God and Boba Fett shirt to registration and everyone loved it! Just about everyone I saw came up to me at one point and asked (1) That shirt is so cool! (2) I want one! How did you get it? or (3) What the hell does that mean? I was amused. Expect a lot of business in the future, Tanja. And I think there's a big market for a shirt that says "Hoopy Frood" on it.

Also yesterday, some of the Jets (Nancy, me, Mackenzie, and Chungy) got together to see a movie. It was quite an adventure! Here's the story:

After picking up our schedules and school books, we sat around, waiting for Nancy to pick us up. When we saw her, it completely blew my mind. She had spent the last 9 weeks at fat camp (bah), but she lost over 30 pounds. However, she looked fantastic. She's so thin! Yowza. Anyway, we had to stop by Jesuit first so that I could lend my copy of Mort (in play version) to Mrs. Felice for consideration for the Spring play. Chungy came with me. Because we didn't have much time, we ran through the school, catching the attention of dozens of Jesuit guys sitting pointlessly in the hallway. One pack of them whistled. Chungy and I were amused. We left the book outside her office, then ran back. The same group of guys said "Hey, you want to come back here?" in a rather pathetic voice, making Chungy and I laugh hysterically. We were still giggling when we piled back into the Nancymobile.

Next, we went to Fun Fest for Lazertag. Of course, it never occured to us that we would be the only ones there. We ended up in a game of 2-on-2 (me and Chungy vs. Nancy and Mackenzie), which was highly amusing, as we spent the game chasing each other in the same order. I chased Nancy, who chased Chungy, who chased Mackenzie. In the first part of the game, my gun wasn't working so I had to go back into the equiptment room and switch vests. The sad thing was, at the end of the game, when we retrieved our scores, Chungy had hit Mackenzie so many times that Mackenzie's score was worse than the score of my original vest. I had just been hit; I hadn't hit anyone. And Mack's score was lower. Poor girl! ::hugs Mack:: Anyway, Chungy creamed us all, which stands to reason as she was the only one who had never played Lazertag before. Beginner's luck. Anyway, after that, it was off to the movies!

The movie of choice was Rush Hour 2. On the way over, we stopped for slushies at 7-11 (Chungy insisted on taking pictures wherever we went), then waited in the video arcade at the theatre until the movie started. There were only three other people in the entire theatre, and we were in one of the huge screening rooms. Score! Anyway, Chungy and I spent a great deal of time debating over who was cooler: Jackie Chan or Chris Tucker. I was firmly in favor of Jackie Chan. Oh well. The movie was hilarious (I reccomend whole-heartedly), so you should definitely go see it. My favourite moment was probably when Li and the girl kissed. This is because anything remotely romantic sends Chungy into spaz mode. She was cowering in her seat, covering her face with her hands. "Nothing wrong with kissing", Nancy said. I expressed my agreement and kissed the top of her head, which sent her to further degrees of spazzing. We all laughed and mocked her a great deal. I can't wait until I show her my RENT boot!

And so that's my story. Rather ineloquent, but it will do. What's yours?

I think I'm going to give up attempting to work on graphics for Fiction Alley and Artistic Alley. I'm so fed up with the organization! I spent ages working on graphics for Phil, only to have Taylor waltz in out of the blue and take over my job. Now Artistic Alley is going to have her work, even though the job was officially supposed to be mine. I had talked on-list with Heidi and Phil, and they all agreed that the graphics for the Artistic Alley pages would be under my charge. Then, I leave from my computer for most of the day, and when I come back, Taylor's graphics are there instead of mine. If Taylor had been working on the graphics as well, why didn't she tell me? It would have saved a whole lot of work for all concerned. What confuses me even more is Phil's manner of dealing with the situation. Phil knew how much effort I was putting into the graphics. He knew that I was waiting for him to finish the new layout for Artistic Alley so that I could know the dimensions and stuff for my new images. He knew I was waiting for the other Fiction Alley mods to vote on their favourite version of my graphic before I posted anything final. Was Phil communicating off-list with Taylor? Why wouldn't he have contacted me and told me that Taylor was going to make the images and I didn't need to bother? There are a lot of other things I could be doing with my time, I hope they realize. I was trying to HELP. The jerks.

What's even worse is that I don't feel like I have the right to complain, as Taylor's graphic looks much better than mine. Of course, I was under the impression that I had to use the same format as the graphics Flourish made for the four Fiction Alley houses, so I didn't allow myself to get creative. My complaint is that I don't think Taylor should have the ability to go over my head like that. Aarg. It's agonizing!

So I'm not going to be their doormat anymore. I'm not volunteering for anything until Artistic Alley is up and running, when I get to work as an Art Chaser for Artistic Alley. No one will be able to step on me from there. Now, I'm off to work on stuff that's worth my time, such as planning out new formats for WIAN and tnm.n and Jets or studying SAT stuff or CGing or reading or cleaning my room. I have enough on my plate already without the Fiction Alley nazis treating me like scum.

tsk, tsk, tsk. I would have thought you guys would have known be better by now! Here's the results of the Lie Detector game!

::trumpet fanfare::

Number 8. Cookie points to the two people that figured it out! Such silliness. Now it's time for expanantions!

1. The first time I read it was in 7th grade, I believe. Then I read it again over the summer, again the summer after that, and again, slowly, over my 10th grade year. Huzzah!
2. ::holds up Maurice to the computer:: See him? Ain't he cute! ::hugs Maurice:: He was named after my counsellor at Sail Caribbean, who named his belly "Maurice". Then "Ducky Bob" is the name of a party rental place in Dallas.
3. When I was I, I was bitten on the thumb by my friend Brittany's pet parrot, Sinbad. Since then, I've hated and feared all birds that size.
4. Ugh! Pulpy orange juice is the bane of my existance! Must be "no pulp".
5. Yes, this happened. Everyone thought I would have a scar, but it healed perfectly. Yay!
6. Not too much to this question. That's my real name. Anyone that sent me mail at Cambridge knows this.
7. ::laughs:: Yes, this happened as well. ::snickers:: It was my mom's idea. I didn't want my blonde hair to go! Fortunately, really, it didn't work.
8. Ah, the one lie. Do you really think I would be this supportive of the LHFCXDE club and so mocking of the groupies if I really had short hair? Certainly not! It's just about waist length at the moment and it's probably getting longer.
9. I'll take a picture of it, if you like. It's really a quite amusing addition to my room. Actually, I think I might have mentioned this theft in my blog... ::looks:: Okay, I didn't. Bah. Oh well.
10. If there's one think I can't do, it's draw real people. And draw things small. Two strikes against the comic! Then, of course, I probably wouldn't be able to come up with enough funny ideas to keep it going all year. Three strikes. Bah.

Well, I hope you've been enlightened, or summat like that. Yeah...

Pain... yesterday, when I went to the dermatologist, my mom brought up the matter of my wart. It's just a teensy little thing on my index finger, you'd never see it if I didn't specifically point it out to you. I've had it for years, and it hasn't bothered me a bit. Well, Dr. Cather told me that she could either freeze it off or burn it off with acid. Erm.... no thanks. Of course, she maintained that the acid didn't hurt a bit and she used it on kids all the time. Even though I didn't want to get it removed, my mom insisted on the acid. That day. This assistant nurse lady who had been hovering in the background globbed this massive amount of goop on my finger, which looked like it should have hurt like heck, even though I couldn't feel anything. Unfortunately, I started feeling it later that evening. Not like a severed limb; more like a serious papercut. And it kept hurting. While I was trying to type, no less. Of course, I assumed it would be fine by the morning. Dr. Cather had said that it should look just like a small blister by the morning, then be gone in about a day and a half. Because of the evil myopic nurse lady, this has not been the case for me. My index finger now has this huge, nasty, 1-cm diameter thing. I don't even want to go into detail on how gross it looks. I'm going to ask Dr. Cather about it when I see her again tomorrow. ::mutters about her evil mother scheduling facials and other similar forms of torture when she isn't even broken out::

Of course, Dr. Cather isn't all that bad. She's really friendly and fairly young. And anyone that perscribes anything manufactured by Sirius Laboratories is okay in my book!

Idea stolen from Rebecca's blog, which in turn was stolen from Lisa. For shame.

One of these statements is a lie! Take your best shot!
1. I have read "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" in its entirety four times.
2. I have a small duck pencil topper on my stereo antenna. His name waffles between Ducky Bob and Maurice.
3. I'm attempting to overcome my mortal fear of parrots
4. I can't stand pulpy orange juice
5. I once had to get minor plastic surgery when I tripped and gashed my bottom lip open on the edge of a glass table. I was 4 years old.
6. My name is Priscilla
7. When my hair started going dark, I tried using an incredibly low-concentrated peroxide solution on my hair to get it blonde again. This was partly because I wanted to look more like Rachel from Animorphs than any of my friends did. Of course, it didn't work.
8. I completely made up the story about having really long hair. It's actually just beyond shoulder length.
9. I stole part of the "How to Succeed" set during the strike. It's a big "World Wide Wickets" sign that is now hanging on my wall, balanced on the wall beside it and a convenient nail.
10. I originally planned to do a JETS comic strip, then scrapped the idea when I realized that I couldn't draw.

Now go vote!

This sucks. As I complained earlier, Flourish has usurped my position on the FictionAlley.org layout, rendering hours of my time meaningless. I tried to offer my version of the front page graphic to the other Mods, but everyone is ignoring me! Am I invisible? Ye-gods. To make matters worse, Flourish is nowhere to be found. Why can't the group just go on with my layout? It was finished! We wouldn't have to wait for her to get back to her computer and throw something else together. I have all the high-res files on my hard drive, too! The picture of the mascots would look more crisp coming from my computer. Bah. My layout looked really awesome, too. ::goes off to sulk::

Joy! New art! (copied from a post on WOFS)

Since discovering a fantastic Elfwood artist whose skills in CG make me want to die, I've been on a photorealism kick. Here's the first fruit of my labor. Of course, keep in mind that this is still very much a work in progress. Soon he's getting shoulders and more hair. Yay.

THE PICTURE (of doom)

My favourite aspects: The eye and the ear (the ear alone took roughly an hour and a half)

Least favourite aspects: The mouth

Joy! Crits/Comments welcome. In fact, if you don't post either a crit or a comment, I will assume you don't love me, climb to the top of my sister's tallest platform shoes, and throw myself to my death. Muah.

Star Wars: Attack of the Rejects
by Nick Nadel, Neil Pasricha and Alexander Zalben

"I'm going to call it 'Attack Of The Clones,'" George Lucas announced casually, while pouring hot oil from a giant vat onto the throngs of fans who had surrounded his castle. Yes, Star Wars fans are mightily upset by the title for "Episode II," though they should take some consolation in these other titles which were dutifully considered and rejected by Lord Lucas himself.

Episode II: Attack of the Scones
Episode II: Attack of the Drones
Episode II: Attack of Sam Malone
Episode II: Attack of the Clones? (A Mystery)
Episode II: Attacked? By a Clone? No Thanks! (A Sitcom)
Episode II: Bigger and Sexier
Episode II: Send in the Clones
Episode II: Anakin, You So Crazy!
Episode II: Attack of the Star Wars Holiday Special
Episode II: Attack of the Hack Humor Pieces

And we're back to lows again. I've been working quite a long time the past two days on the main page layout for FictionAlley.org, as Heidi told me to put the final together. Then of course, Flourish (who was originally supposed to be in charge) bursts in and assumes all responsibility again. All my work has been in vain. I've spent ages searching font websites for PC-friendly versions of Silkscreen and Apple Chancery, the Mac-only fonts Flourish used in the original design. When my search is fruitless, I searched the net for a font converter that could make Mac fonts into PC fonts. The cheapest one was about $30. Forget it. So, I eventually found a font that vuagely resembled Silkscreen, which I used, then I reconstructed Apple Chancery pixel by pixel from scratch. God help me. Then I spent most of this morning on the new design (which looks great), only to have the entire thing taken away from me. Sometimes I really hate being a part of group projects. I'm honored to be on the staff of Fiction Alley and Artistic Alley, but I feel almost like a pawn. Arg. I wonder if Flourish has Photoshop. I could send her what I've done so far. ::frowls and stalks off::

I am so ticked off at my mom at this point. I think the irony gods must be laughing their heads off. As you may remember from a previous blog entry, our house had developed a leak. As luck would have it, it's in my room. Well, it started raining at about 4 in the morning, so naturally my mom wakes *me* up to tell her where the leak is. I explain in an incredibly clear manner: "look for where there's a huge ugly white gash in the ceiling and splitting wood. You can't miss it." Of course, this was more than I had gotten, because I was the one who found the leak in the first place. This means I had to crouch around in our hazardous, creepy attic, where one wrong step will leave you quite suddenly in the room below. Not to mention, all I had at the time was a flashlight, and I had to actually *find* the stupid thing. Since then, we've replaced the light bulb so that people can actually see. Anyway, back to the story. I woke up around 9:15 to the sound of dripping water. Hell. I look blearily over to the area of my room where the leak lets out and see to my horror that I had left one of my drawers in my closet open. Well, guess where the leak was? Spilling water directly onto my clothes. Even more luckily, I had left the previous days' clothes on the top of the drawer, as the jeans weren't dirty and the shirt had special washing instructions. Well, my beloved Percy shirt has had its first wash. I can only hope it can be rescued. My favourite jeans are pretty much fine, I believe, and they stopped most of the water from getting through to my other clothes, so they should be okay.

So why am I mad at my mom? Well, after dealing with my clothes and putting my trash can in the proper place to catch the remaining leaks, I went up to the attic to find out why on earth water was still coming through if my mom had stopped the leak. I envisioned an overflowing bowl. I never would have imagined that she would put the bucket about a foot away from where it was supposed to be! I rectified the problem, then went back to my room to care to my poor Percy shirt. It didn't really smell funny, it was just really, really wet. Fortunately, it was just a big semicircle of water encroaching on the right side, and it didn't get to the lettering. I don't think it will be ruined, unless of course the water leaves a stain. Arg. Calling me irritated would be the understatement of the year.

I went to see Planet of the Apes with Chad. I wore my awesome Percy is God and Boba Fett shirt. Surprisingly, Chad didn't ask what on Hoth it meant. Oh well. Anyway, while not the greatest film in history, PotA was at least entertaining. Of course, there was the occasional plot hole so big you could pilot the Oberon through. And predictable. Ye gods. But the special effects were groovy, at least. The makeup was fabulous. I just wish the characters were more believeable. Tim Roth's character (Thad or Thame or summat) wasn't frightening, he was obnoxious. And the girl (did she even have a name?) was downright irritating. Evidently the writers didn't want an ape to get the guy. ::wrinkles nose:: Oh well. It was fun to get to hang out with Chad. We talked a bit about Harry Potter -- I especially loved the classic reference to "Hermany" (like Germany, but with an H). It's always so amusing to find out how people pronounce Hermione's name. I thought it was HER-mee-own.

Is that all I have to say? I think so. ::blinks:: I'm tired. I'm waiting for a pizza to arrive, as I'm too lazy to go out and get some food and I didn't eat before we left. Well, I ate massive quantities of cantaloupe, but I don't think that counts. Bah.

::snickets:: My mom is copying one of my friends' tapes for me -- Christine Lavin (the Republican song lady) -- anyway, she's using a speed dub, so her bedroom is full of the sound of chipmunkized music. It's absolutely hilarious! ::amused:: I love singing along with chipmunkized music. With amusing hand motions and such. Hehe. Anyway, in other music news, I'm burning a CD of my favourite Moulin Rouge songs, as the official CD doesn't have "Spectacular Spectacular", "The Show Must Go On", or "Like A Virgin". I'm calling it "Meilleur du Moulin" (Best of the Moulin -- okay, best of the windmill. So sue me). I got this groovy magazine thing that talks all about the digital technology used in some of the summer movies -- Moulin Rouge, Final Fantasy, Pearl Harbor, Evolution, and Driven -- and so it has all these groovy Moulin Rouge photos. I'm making a CD jacket cover and such for my own amusement. My mom is on my case about cleaning my room, so I must devise every possible plan to get out of it.

This thought progression reminds me a whole lot of this lecture thing I attended at MIT about alternative thinkers or summat. The motto for disjunct thinkers was "We may not make sense, but we really like pizza". I live by this motto.

4) Replace all school counselors in grades K-12 with agents of Colombian and Jamaican drug cartels,
5) Establish planetary chain of 'homo breeding gulags where over-medicated imprisoned straight women are turned into artificially impregnated baby factories to produce prepubescent love slaves for our devotedly pederastic gay leadership,

WIAN got rejected by Harcourt! Yo! ::does groovy rejection dance:: Now when is my stupid Ballantine letter coming? ::is impatient::

Wondering why I'm cheering over a rejection? Well, I knew I was going to get rejected from Harcourt, as they only accept manuscripts from authors with a literary agent. However, my mom made me submit a query anyway. Oh well. From there, it's Discworld logic. Someone somewhere probably has a statistic for how often first-time writers are rejected by publishers, but for the sake of sanity, let's say 9 out of 10 times. That means, if I sent out ten query letters, I would be accepted by only one of them. Well, so far I've sent out two query letters, and since one has been rejected, that slightly increases my chance of getting accepted by the other 8 queries I may eventually send out.

Yes, I know that things don't work like that. It's Discworld logic, as I said before. But everyone's entitled to their own delusions, aren't they? And plus, why get upset about something you knew was going to happen anyway?

I had such a weird dream last night. It was a production of Mort, one of the Discworld books that is available in play form, except it was a musical. And everyone had a wearable form of transportation: Death wore rollerblades and Ysabelle rode a unicycle. I remember an amusing scene in which Death and Ysabelle had this emotion-filled song, much in the style of "Elaborate Lives" from Aida or possibly "Come What May" from Moulin Rouge. I only wish I could have remembered more!

Hopefully, I'll be inspired enough to finally make a design for tnm.n. I have a bunch of design ideas, but I'm not sure if any of them would work. Bah.

::flails:: Why did people have to start betting in Claudia's auction? I was hoping to hold off until the last minute and winning for a rather low price! ::mutters darkly:: I don't know if I'd pay $26... I'm a complete tightwad, I know. ::throws a fit:: Claudia is just too talented. ::wrinkles nose::

Oh, yeah. I forgot to mention that Elfwood updated my galleries! Loth, Fanart. Comment if you love me. Otherwise I will assume that I don't have any friends and be sad.

And Tanja, you have to give me a link to your gallery. I was looking for it, as I was hoping to provide links to my friends' galleries, and the search thing was yelling at me.

Someone in Starling's Elfwood gallery thinks that Azurite and I are the same person. I'm not sure if I should feel flattered or insulted. I adore Azurite's work, but I thought that I had made myself known slightly more than this. ::frowls:: Just like last night, when a girl emailed me, asking me to put her in contact with the person who does the fanart for my website. Am I really that subtle? I thought "My Fan Art" would be obvious enough. ::fneers::* Identity is obnoxious.

* A "fneer" is a combination of a frown, a nose wrinkle, and a sneer.

I take great pleasure in secretly pronouncing Sci-Fi "skiffy".

We went to London again yesterday! Quite nifty! Because we were again confined to a small area that we had already explored, I sat down with two friends and played with the Shakespearean magnetic poetry on the table at Starbucks as they waited for their henna tattoos to dry (a natural skin dye that lasts 3 weeks. It doesn't appeal to me, though). Very amusing. Then we walked around for a bit, (I tried to gather a group to go to Westminster Abbey so that we could take the Abbey Road picture, but no luck) then went to Planet Hollywood for dinner. Afterwards, we met the group and headed to the theatre for Peggy Sue Got Married, which was quite nifty. There was this incredibly amusing science nerd guy, who instantly became a hero to some of the geekier girls, myself included. He sang this hilarious song about the love lives of a bunch of famous scientists. I thought it was quite amusing. Lots of physics jokes.

This morning, I got to go on an adventure with three other girls when the bus for Scientific Discoveries left without us. We talked to the counsellors in T2,
and they told us that we should wait to see if the bus came back (fat chance -- it's always leaving people). We bumped into Philip, the assistant-teacher, who made fun of us and suggested that we just have free time instead. However, today was the day to visit the Sanger Centre, the Genome research labratories, and I didn't want to pass up that opportunity. One of the girls flagged down a taxi and we took a trip to the centre in style! We ended up only being about 10 minutes late into the lecture, so we didn't miss the tour. I was disappointed that I didn't get to hear the entire lecture, though. Oh well. We got our grades, and I got a B. I looked around and saw that most people around me got a B-, so I felt pretty good about myself.

During the evil morning meeting, Anna (our group leader) gave me an oddly-shaped, bulky envelope. I completely spazzed out when I saw that it was from Tanja. Inside was a glorious, joyous letter, including a picture of Bob the G-E-V and Procent H-V, our original characters. She also gave me this odd spray-candy stuff. Quite nifty.

In Hitchcock, we watched snippets of The Birds, Marnie, The Man Who Knew Too Much, The Lodger, and even a bit of Grease, to cleanse our minds of "Peggy Sue Got Married", which Mr. Patterson didn't particularly like. Quite enjoyable! And I got an A+ in the course, too. Muahaha.

This afternoon, I picked up two more Discworld books for my various forms of transportation tomorrow. Yuck. Also, I updated my Elfwood gallery and started a Fanart gallery. ::mwashes:: Of course, it will be a while before the updates take place, but keep an eye out.

I think that's it. Neer. ::blinks:: Yo.

Woo! Vote in the book 5 cover contest on hpgalleries! I wonder if Starling is aware that a kid in group 2 poached her artwork. She should be flattered. Also, I'm amused, because in group 8, there are two next to each other by people named Elinor and Priscila. ::cackles:: I voted for Priscila on principle.

::envious of Monica:: How come Starling gets her own Fan Art section on Elfwood? They're not letting anyone in right now! ::frowls:: Oh well. Still, happy Elfwood things are afoot. Nicole Elizabeth Benoist has included me among her favourite Elfwood artists -- next to HP artistic greats such as Starling, Laura Freeman, and Edward Juan. Woo-hoo! ::does a groovy dance::

Someone commented in my poll "U miss Invader Zim?"

The answer is yes. I repetively miss it, as I always forget when it comes on. It's a different kind of "miss", silly. I was joking.

You know you've been in England too long when you start dreaming about a Harry Potter/Twelfth Night crossover. That was disturbing...

I was Harry, counterpart of Cesario, and I was head over heels in love with Cho (Olivia). Because Fred and George had graduated and only Katie, Angelina, and Alicia were left (yes, I know that violates canon. Deal with it) we had an entire new Quidditch team, and I was captain (how cliche). Cho became captain of the Ravenclaw team, now that Roger Davies had gone. Various stuff happens (I don't remember -- I rarely remember a great deal about my dreams), and my Priscilla (Viola) conciousness starts to dawn. I realize that I am Harry and Priscilla at the same time, and both are in love with Cho. Then I wake up.

I'm sure that's not all there was to the dream. I seem to remember some Malvolio/Malfoy stuff going on, and some painful ceramics puns on Harry's last name (ouch). Maybe I'll remember more later.

I'm happy, because I've finally gotten to like the White Album. Originally, I didn't like it as much, simply because the songs were so different from other Beatles songs. Now I'm getting "My guitar gently weeps" and "Obladi oblada" stuck in my head. Joy! ::does a groovy dance to "everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey"::

For some reason, I find it so adoreably cute. If you'd like to witness this adoreable comment for yourself, it's on the D/G kiss pic collaboration in Starling's gallery. ::giggles:: Okee, if you're out there, you rock.

Guess who got to hang out in Steven Hawking's office this morning? Well, not quite hang out. More like "stand on the outside of and marvel at its contents within". Still, I think it's incredibly cool. I just wish I'd gotten to meet him!

Tanja was complaining that I didn't go online yesterday. It wasn't my fault! I was visiting Stonehenge and Bath! ::flails:: It was amazingly cool, though. Of course, most of the group didn't appreciate it (miserable worms). I got lots of froody pictures, which will probably go into the photography section of tnm.n when I finally get it online. Hurrah!

In other news, today I got a deluge of mail! It was mostly from my mom, who must have been sending postcards every five minutes. Crazyness. Of course, the most prized treasures in the batch were from two WOFSers: Kell and Rydia. Dogs from miles around must have been whimpering in pain from the sound of my excited squeals of joy. Kell gave me an absolutely GORGEOUS drawing of Harry, Ron, and Hermione travelling, with Piper and Indy in one corner and one of those adoreably cute tiger sketchies that she used to have as her icon. I shall treasure it forever! ::squeals more:: Which reminds me, because I have to get my postcards in the mail! Silly Scillia...

::sigh:: Finished. After 5 hours of writing and 3 1/2 hours of revising, I finally finished my Hitchcock paper. I can't believe I spent that much time on it! Most people just spent about an hour or an hour and a half! Originally, I was just going to finalize my "pregnant girl" sequence from the first class, but the idea fell through because it refused to be written. Then, suddenly, I got a brilliant idea. Revelling in my newfound love for "Chamber of Secrets", I decided that I would do a scene out of the book. Originally, I thought I could do the scene with Harry and Tom and Unconcious!Ginny in the actual chamber, but I dismissed it for the sequence immediately preceeding that, with Harry, Ron, Lockhart, and Myrtle finding the entrance. I have a great deal more respect for directors and scriptwriters now! Sticking to the text is incredibly difficult. In the end, the script and camera direction amounted to 8 1/2 pages, handwritten, while the original text was only about 2 1/2 pages. Ye gods. ::collapses:: Oh well. I enjoyed myself.

Of course, I remind myself of a quote from Psycho: "A hobby is supposed to pass the time, not fill it." ::sigh::
