So, I may just learn decent pop and lock dancing techniques from a Wii game. Benny Benassi and Justice songs on the game, FTW! A workout I can enjoy. Hallelujah.
I’m so glad they put the days in this order.– Mom
Gwen: “there’s a new Winnie the Pooh movie coming out… not an adult film… more adult-oriented, more philosophical…” Me: “adult film… that would be questionable.” Mom: “well he [winnie the pooh] never wore pants, did he?” Why am I not recording EVERY CONVERSATION??!?
Sometimes I think it would be so much easier to kick and scream and cry. Throw a little tantrum and release all the aggravation that’s been building. But then I tell myself, no, you can’t do that. It’s not right. That not what you represent. But I’m human. With real emotions. Real frustrations. And a struggle that continues to rear its ugly head, because the lesson I am...
Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.– Walter Elliot
baking is therapy
Related to previous post and the reply made on it :) if anyone does want me to bake them something, I seriously would oblige and send it your way. It’s a way to keep my mind off the more unpleasant things. I will take requests. I have been wanting to try this.
I have this quiet little dream that I hold in my heart… that if I could just crochet something for everyone… bake everyone some cookies… or create something for anyone I encounter, I could the world come together harmoniously. Oh, how ludicrous I am sometimes. As I sit in the midst of my clutter, which I find oddly comforting, for no apparent reason. Even though this may be a...
Love means loving the unlovable - or it is no virtue at all.– G.K. Chesterton, Heretics
What's Happening in Libya Explained →
I tend to have these odd moments where my past doesn’t feel like reality, where I can play the memories in my head, but they feel distant, like I didn’t actually live them sometimes. And I look at my reflection, and see a person that vaguely resembles that girl from the years gone by, but I’m not entirely sure I recognize her. And then I think about the people I’ve met,...
this is dinner conversation.
Mom: “I don’t trust fat cooks.” Me: “And skinny food tasters… no, food critics, right? Mom: “Yeah! Fat cooks and skinny food critics.” O_o *********** [talking about the deer that appeared in the yard today] Dad: “But if there’s a bear, the bow’s coming out, I don’t care what the state says.” Well, ok.
Leave it to my mom to make an interesting, but kinda profound statement. I had her listen to the song “Selfless, Cold, and Composed” by Ben Folds Five. There’s this line, “But you just smile, like a bank teller, kindly telling me, ‘Have a nice life’”. She laughed and said, “I thought a bank teller would be more likely to tell you,...

Chrononauts is quite an interesting game. I recommend it if you’ve ever toyed around with the idea of altering history. Anyway. I shall paraphrase the goings-on. Ryan: “I don’t trust him [Sean] with his lack of hat.” (Ryan, Kevin and I were all donning hats) Sean puts a glove on his head. [At this point, history had been altered to prevent the murder of John Lennon] ...

I heart Chesterton.
Once when The Times asked him and several other prominent authors to write essays on the subject “What’s Wrong with the World?” Chesterton answered succinctly: Dear Sirs, I am. Sincerely yours, G. K. Chesterton
