random thoughts


Well, quite recently, I’ve found the perfect solution of finding out whether a popular singer can actually sing or not by watching them sing the national anthem at the white house, a baseball game, or whatever.  The national anthem is always sung live and this can all be seen on youtube, of course. Hoorah! I actually spent half a day watching all these videos. They’re actually really amusing. Hehe. For example, the Jonas Brothers absolutely SUCKEEDDD! I’m sorry if you’re one of their fans, but they were incredibly bad. Also N’Sync singing it acapella…AMAZINGG! Anyways, people should check it out sometime.

Have you ever gotten one of those huge Hershey’s kisses? The ones that are solid chocolate and they’re as big as a softball. It’s basically impossible to eat. I’ve always wondered how people eat it. Do they chop pieces off with a knife? I just don’t understand. Also I’ve had this problem with large gobstoppers. I’m talking about the huge ones that take forever to eat. Do people ever finish them or do they get tired of eating it before it’s done? Personally, I’ve never been able to eat a whole one.I always end up throwing it away. If you think about it, you spit and drool all over it.

I don’t understand why people run around in Bay to Breakers without any clothes on. I mean, sure, you’re making a statement by being completely nude, but then again, you’re running a few miles with everything hanging out…isn’t that uncomfortable? So if you did this every year, you would eventually turn really saggy. Sorry for putting a disturbing picture in your mind but don’t worry, I don’t think about naked people all the time.If this helps, DON'T think about a kangaroo.

I wonder what’s actually going to happen in 2012. The world is supposed to explode and all that, but I’m guessing it won’t. Is the New Years countdown going to be a bigger event in 2011? Hey we graduate then =] That would actually suck if the world ended in 2012. That means right after we all graduate high school we’re all going to die. Lovely! So there’s no point in any of us being in school right now. We should all be living our lives like it’s the last years of our existence. Maybe I’ll stop going to school from now on…just kidding Mr. Ross!

Remember that one Barbie that was pregnant and you could take the baby out of its tummy? Yeah, disturbing. I actually recall seeing it on a commercial when I was little. The Barbie had a large belly, and there’s a slit on her tummy which you could pull the baby out of. It’s on her STOMACH, not down there…I’m pretty sure they banned it after a while. Which idiot thought of giving children these Barbies? That’s kind of disturbing.I'm surprised people still buy Barbies after that.

I wonder if some nerds got Harry Potter tattoos on their foreheads after reading all the Harry Potter series. That would be extremely attractive. It would really hurt too I imagine. Ouch. It would definitely be a major turn on though. I guess if people got their eyes tattooed, they would definitely go for the Harry Potter tattoo too. I would much rather get that rather than getting my eyeballs tattooed. That just sounds extremely gross and pointless. Eyes are really sensitive so you shouldn’t go around poking needles into them.

Have you seen that one newly discovered fish that’s found near the bottom of the ocean? It’s like any regular fish but it has a transparent head. You can literally see inside its skull and it’s a big gooey mess. It’s totally strange and out of this world. I just don’t understand why it would need this feature. Sure, it can roll its eyes back into its head and see from a different angle, but for what? Predators? Do you really need this? This also makes me think about spiders and bugs. They have really good vision but they can’t see well. That sounds contradicting, but I mean they can react to stuff around them faster but their vision is blurry. So would that mean that if their vision wasn’t blurry, then they would be like mini ninjas and they would conquer the world. That thought scares me.

I don’t understand why people forget things so easily. Aren’t we supposed to be the most advanced creatures on earth? Then why do we have such short term memory loss issues? We’re like Dory from finding nemo, except not that bad. I always find myself going somewhere to get something, then once I get there, I forget what I was going to get. This actually happens way too often and it wastes my time.

I don’t get how cotton candy is made. I know it’s made out of sugar, but how does it turn all fluffy? Someone give me a scientific answer! I guess it’s just all magic. You just sprinkle a bit of fairy dust, and voila! Cotton candy! I used to have a Hello Kitty cotton candy machine when I was little, but then it scattered sugar all over the floor so I threw it out. It was pretty cool making cotton candy at home though. I’m such a huge cotton candy fan! I get it all the time at carnivals and wherever they sell them.

I’ve never liked horses. I’m not really sure why. I’ve never gotten near one either. They just freak me out. Apparently my grandpa used to be a really good horse rider person thingie majigger but then he flipped over once and broke some bones. After wards, he stopped riding horses and has warned me about the dangers of riding them. I don’t think that’s where my fear originated from. Also I’ve always wanted to pet a panda or a koala. I feel like pandas would be cuddly and soft, but I’m not so sure about koalas. Are they soft or prickly?

Sneaking Out


         “Beep, beep, beep…”

         Blindly whacking an object next to me, I shut off my obnoxious alarm clock, and the beeping finally subsided. I slowly rolled off of my bed and opened my sleepy eyes. I quickly got up and opened the curtains; it was dark and thousands of shiny dots shot across the sky. I quickly texted Joe and Carla, telling them to meet me at St. Joseph park. Quietly, I crept through my house, making sure to not wake up my parents from their slumber. I stopped by my kitchen and grabbed some marshmallows, Hershey’s chocolate, graham crackers, and matches. I shoved them in my bag quickly and fled the house. After I was able to get out of my house, I fast-walked in the direction of the park. I soon met up with my buddies who were sitting near a campfire area which was conveniently placed in the center of the park. The streetlights were shut off while the meteors darted across the night sky, illuminating soft light onto the grass. I greeted my friends and grabbed the materials from my bag, laying them down on the ground. There was already wood in the campfire ring so all I had to do was light up a match to start the fire. The fire burned softly as we all grabbed sticks and stuck marshmallows on the tips. We all sat there, holding the marshmallows over the fire while watching our first meteor shower. The sight was mesmerizing and many of the marshmallows ended up burnt because it was difficult keeping an eye on them when the meteors were distracting us. Ignoring the burnt ones, we put the nicely cooked ones between the chocolate and graham crackers, making delicious s’mores. When the meteors slowly subsided, Joe started to throw some of his burnt marshmallows at everyone, which resulted in a messy, sticky, marshmallow fight. After the fight was over, the night was filled with lots of laughter as we pulled off the white gooey marshmallows off of our clothing and as Joe even slipped in some cliché s’mores jokes.

            After all of that was over, we still had a lot of time to kill so we all decided to head for the mall, which was our usual hangout area. The sky was still pitch black and it was completely quiet in the streets. Luckily, Joe had received his license a couple months ago, which made it easier for all of us to get to the _____ mall quickly. Of course, when we got there, all the doors in the mall were locked, but Joe had stolen his father’s key to the whole mall since his dad worked there as a security guard. Using the key, we were able to slip in and wander around the empty mall. The mall was dead silent, but it was soon filled with our giggling and screaming. We stopped at the Abercrombie store which reeked of their signature cologne and perfume. We stepped in and began to play around with the clothes. Soon after, Carla pulled down one of the mannequin’s pants, leaving the bottom half completely nude. This sparked all of our interests and so we began to pull down all the pants of all the mannequins in the store while snickering the whole time. We even put on some feminine clothing on the guy mannequins such as bikinis and the girl mannequins wore guy shorts and shirts. After we were done, we all stepped back and admired our genius work.

            Next, we went into a candy store. The store was packed with sweets and we each took large samples. We were careful and made sure that we didn’t take enough for the store owner to notice that any were gone. We still took a sufficient amount of candy and soon became extremely sugar high.

            The toy store was nearby so we stopped there. Joe put on a costume and walked around the store while singing a Britney Spears song in a high pitched voice. I, on the other hand went around shooting nerf guns at Joe and Carla while they flung stuffed animals at me. We played with basically everything in the store. We rode bikes, played around with the action figures and dolls, made fun of Barbie dolls, played in a mini bounce house that they had out, jumped on trampolines, and played some of the video games that they had open.

            We soon headed to another store to pull some mischievous pranks. It was just way too fun and tempting. Our next victim was a candle store which was owned by an evil woman named Darla. Darla is known to be a grumpy, vicious lady who yelled at us all the time. We entered her store with our pack of matches from making s’mores earlier. Each of us took a set of matches and began lighting every candle in the store. It took some time and effort since there were hundreds of candles, but it was definitely worth it. The store was incredibly bright, hot from all the lit wicks, and all the smells from the candles clashed with each other. It was incredible. As we stood there watching all the candles burn, we heard Darla coming towards the store. She was the first one in the mall and we didn’t realize how late it was getting. We could hear her because she was screaming into her cell phone, arguing with someone over the phone.

            “QUICK! Run away!” I yelled as we all scrambled out of the store.

            We all hid behind a nearby trash can which was close to the front of Darla’s candle store. We watched her reaction when she saw the candles in her store. She dropped her phone and ran about, screaming. She quickly grabbed her fire extinguisher and began spraying the whole store, making a large mess. We laughed from a distance at her insanity and ran out of the mall, unnoticed. We drove home before our parents would notice that we were gone. I said goodbye to my friends and silently snuck in the house. I slipped into my bed, unnoticed and pretended to sleep while my mom came into my room to wake me up for school. No one would ever know about our secret night out and what happened at the mall.  

Wall-EEEEE


Wall-E, the movie that critics have been raving about is a remarkable one compared to all others. Everyone can watch this movie and it’s family oriented as well. It does indeed live up to its high ratings.

However, the first half of the movie lacks any real dialogue and consists of only two words, “Wall-eeee” and “Evaaaaa!”.  At this point, any idiot with a negative IQ could understand what is going on. It merely shows two robots chasing each other and jumping around in circles. While some may aw at this, others will sleep or become extremely irritated at this scene. Fortunately, this seemingly endless story shifts its gears and eventually transforms into a climatic, exciting one with more meaning.

Unlike other Pixar movies previously created, Wall-E does an outstanding job of incorporating an important message to the widespread audience. The message regards the ongoing, unfortunate fate of the human race. It portrays the increasing rate of obesity, our reliance on technology, and our problem of pollution. While many are offended by this harsh criticism, it has also opened up the eyes of the public. While not making a boring documentary about this problem, like An Inconvenient Truth, Wall-E is able to reveal this through an excellent job of animation.

Although the before mentioned ideas about Wall-E seem to be gloomy and negative, the movie itself is a sweet love story. The lonely robot seeks true love, while he cleans up the trashed city one-handedly. He collects loads of interesting looking trash during his work and brings them back to his living space but he also brings back mementos of love, such as a musical which features two lovers. Indeed, his yearning for love saddens most of us, but it is soon fulfilled by a newcomer to the planet, Eve. In comparison to Wall-E, Eve is a much more polished and upgraded robot. She shows our quickly evolving technology that greatly changes every year. Perhaps this fast-paced change in technology isn’t so great and it’s negatively affecting our lives. The movie explains that this is the main reason for people’s laziness and obesity.

This movie leaves us filled with many emotions. It’s definitely not a type of movie that you’ll come across very often. It’s unique from all others and has a worldwide message, relevant to all the viewers. I highly recommend watching it, but make sure to skip the first half…

confusing painting, but I love it



Man, I really loved the other painting of it having a nighttime and daytime scene going on, but I really didn’t know what it meant and what to write about sooo I chose this one. I like this one too. Anyways, as we all know it’s a canvas painting of the actual view through the window. I’m not quite sure what Rene wants the viewers to think about this one. I mean, art is what we see in the world but it’s not always a direct replica of it. Artists skew the image around to their own liking. I’ve been brainstorming ideas for a couple of minutes because this is so friggin confusing. Ugh. This painting could have a bunch of meanings. I guess that’s what Rene is purposefully doing. Darn you Rene.

Anyways, I was thinking maybe this could mean that people don’t see the whole picture. People draw and paint pictures of what they see, and in this painting they only see one part of the whole view of outside. People need to open up more and see the whole world, not just parts of it. OR maybe this could be like the Allegory of the Cave thingie we read this year. That’s the one with the discussion between Socrates and Plato and they’re talking about people in the cave who don’t see sunlight and just look at the shadows the people above create. The people in the cave think the shadows are the real thing, but the people above actually see the objects creating the shadows, which is actually real. It could be like that but the painting is what we think is real but the bigger picture, the whole window view, is reality.

                I really don’t know where I’m going with this and I’m sorry if I’m confusing you guys even more. WAIT! Another idea just popped into my head. I don’t understand how the painting could be exactly the same as outside. I mean, is the world on pause or something? The world seems to be standing still in the actual painting, unless the painter painted the painting EXACTLY then and the clouds haven’t moved at all. That’s so trippy. Maybe he’s saying that people are living in a stopped world? I don’t know how I could interpret that, but it’s possible.

It could also mean that he wants people to have a more open mind to the world. We see things just as they are and people are so literal. Maybe he wants us to open our minds more and not be so straightforward. In the painting, the person painted an exact replica of the window view. That could represent the people who see things just as they are and not any other way.

I feel like this painting could be much simpler. It’s just a painting of a painting in front of a window. It’s seriously that simple, but when you start staring at it and thinking about stuff, everything gets confusing. I think my brain just exploded.

ice cream once again


Arriving home from a long day of school, a sudden urge hit me. I was craving some delicious ice cream. Quickly crossing off the possibility of going to Fentons, also known as the king of amazing ice cream, I unhappily settled for bland ice cream from a regular grocery store. Still desperate for any type of ice cream of any form, I eagerly headed off to the nearest grocery store. Since no one was present at my household, I wasn’t able to hitch a ride. I sulked that I had to walk all the way to the supermarket, which meant a longer delay until I was able to actually have the ice cream in my hands. Ignoring the fact, I grabbed a couple dollar bills and hurried out of my house in the direction of Colusa Market. The sun shined down on the bright green grass and the colorful, abundant flowers swayed with the calm breeze. The birds chirped about, chasing each other, slightly distracting me from my desires. I got caught up in the moment until I witnessed some noisy middle school kids passing by with large cones of ice cream in their hands. Of course, the sight of this got my mind back on track on my original purpose of wandering around Albany. I quickened my pace while heading up the mildly steep hill. Sweat began to drip down my face as I concentrated on keeping my mind on my goal: ICE CREAM! I fast-walked all the way while navigating myself through the empty streets, until I began to see the sign of the market located just around the corner. A bubbly feeling began to overpower my insides as I got closer to the entrance. The door seemed miles away and time seemed to slow down, as if I was walking in slow motion. I heard the ice cream calling out for me and I couldn’t hold back the temptation. I couldn’t take it anymore so I ran, finally entering the store. I quickly got my scopes on and searched for the frozen aisle. Once I spotted the ice cream section, I headed towards it and ended up in an ice cream heaven. Freezers and freezers of ice cream stood in front of me, filled with various types. I scanned the different kinds and couldn’t decide on which one to get. Desperately, I grabbed the closest one and set off towards the cash register. Fortunately I found that the line was really short and there was only one person in front of me. It’s my lucky day! I smiled as I patiently waited for the lady to be done buying her produce. I was so close to having that ice cream. I waited there for about five minutes and noticed that the lady was taking forever. She was an elderly woman and of course she was making small-talk with the cashier. As the two chatted away, I began to feel uneasy. The ice cream was starting to melt beneath my grip and I couldn’t stand still. Just as I was about to tell the lady to hurry the heck up (tee hee) another worker opened a cashier nearby. “Next person in li-“ the man started to say, but I was already standing in front of him before he could finish his sentence. He speedily scanned the item and I asked for a spoon because I couldn't wait any longer. I hurriedly ran out of the store, grasping onto the bag with the ice cream bundled in it. I located a nearby bench and sat down, opening the bag. As I took out the carton, my heart filled with joy. I was finally going to eat the ice cream! I opened the top, grabbed the spoon, and dipped it into the creamy goodness. I took the first bit and literally melted with delight. I was in heaven.

eh?


1. Who is the most inspiring person (for you personally) in your life? How and why do they inspire you? You may see them as a personal hero or a role model…

 

Well this isn’t a person who’s actually involved in my life but I am influenced by him. I can’t even remember his name but we watched a video in applied tech about a presentation that he did in front of a large audience. He was basically lecturing about how to live your life and to fulfill your dreams. He had many tumors in his liver(?) and only had a few months left to live but he was still optimistic about it. He also assisted others in fulfilling their childhood dreams and fulfilled his own as well. He was an intelligent and happy person who actually did something with his life, and I admire that. 

 

2. If you had one weekend to spend 10,000 dollars, and you had to spend it, what would you do/buy?

 

I would buy small stuff that I’ve been wanting to get lately such as a new volleyball and lotion. Hehe. Then with the loads of extra money, I would get a new closet for my room. Ugh. I hate my closets right now and they’ve been bugging me for a while. I’ve always wanted one of those huge closets you see in movies (and in other peoples’ houses) where you walk in and it’s like a whole new room. All your clothes are hung up nicely and your shoes are on shelves and everything. I hope that will cost less than 10,000 dollars…if not, I would owe the bank lots of money. Or maybe I would just go on a huge clothes shopping spree and buy anything without hesitating about the cost. I always see stuff in stores that I like and when I check the price, it’s too expensive. I get my hopes up and they get crushed. L But maybe that would be stupid to spend all that money on clothes. I feel like I should be a good person and give some money to charity. Ugh. I hate this question.  

 

3. If you could go back in time to change any one event, what would it be, and how would changing it affect the world moving forward FROM THAT POINT?

 

 There's something in my life in particular that I've been thinking about recently which I would like to change, but it's kind of personal. Plus, I think the blog is referring to something historical? Maybe? Well I really don’t know what to pick. I guess I would go back and stop some wars from happening since they cause so much destruction in the world. I’m not sure which one, but one of them. Maybe 9/11? I can’t really decide. It would be nice to have more peace in this world.

 

4. If you could un-invent something, what would it be and why would you un-invent it?

 

I think I would un-invent arcade games. All of them! They're so addicting and you always end up spending lots of money on them. It's just a really good way to trick people to hand over their money. You know like those people at the amusement parks that you always see with bags and bags of large stuffed animals. I used to be kind of like that, but you can't do anything with the stuffed animals once you get home. They just take up loads of extra room in your house and trash cans. It's just junk but winning the toys are so satisfying. Men always get really into it and try to win stuff for their women. I even remember playing one of those games where you shoot water at a hole and the balloon fills up and pops. You play with a group of strangers and the greater the amount of people that play, the larger the prize. I was playing and tied with this man who was with his girlfriend or whatever. We had to play another game with each other to see who actually wins. Of course, the man got really into it and wanted to impress his lady. He leaned in hecka far to shoot better and he basically cheated. There was even a huge sign right in front saying to not lean in but nobody wanted to tell him that since he was fully concentrated in the game. In the end he won against me by about a millionth of a second. I kind of wanted to win just to piss him off. Oh well. Also, since it was just a game between the two of us, he only won a tiny, lame alligator stuffy.

 

5. What film most accurately resembles your life? Make the connections clear using traits/aspects/characteristics/characters of the film. Consider approaching this a bit like an essay--you must have some concrete details from the film that you connect to concrete details from your life. ELABORATE!

 

Oh geez. Definitely Twilight. Just kidding! I would say Toy Story? I can compare myself to Woody because I get jealous easily of others. Also I’m stubborn and I can act a bit bossy. The movie is similar to my life because I can seem mean to other people sometimes but in the end, I try to help them out and act nicer to them. Yeah, I don't know.

 

6. SHORT ANSWER: What is the best not chocolate dessert?

Wait, this isn't fair because I'm a huuge chocolate person! I’m kind of in love with candy canes though. It’s quite strange. Only when they’re in season!

sorry, weirdest song choices everrrr


Alright. I can’t believe I picked a Hilary Duff song as one of my theme songs but whatevs. It’s an amazing song…ahem. I think it’s also one of her first songs that she “beautifully” sang which makes it even better!

I can’t wait – Hilary Duff

I picked this song mainly because I was desperate for any song that isn’t all about love and being heartbroken. Anyways it’s basically a song that many teens/children/tweens can relate to as they’re growing up. Maybe even adults can relate too? It’s about how you don’t really know where life is going to take you and it’s very happy. “How it happens/I don’t care/If it’s rainin’/Or what I wear/I know today is taking me/where I’m meant to be” The song is very hopeful about what’s waiting for them in life and this is kind of the way many people think as they’re growing up. I’m not really sure if I can say that I’m this hopeful about life but I’m livin’ it and letting it take me wherever…

Keep Holding On- Avril Lavigne

Sorry for picking lame songs but I really don’t know what other ones to pick for this blog. Anyways this song is about not letting go or giving up on something and to just hang in there. “Keep holding on/Cause you know we’ll make it through, we’ll make it through/Just stay strong” There were many instances where I wanted to give up on something because it was difficult to handle but I kept going. I hate giving up on things easily and I’m kind of stubborn so I just do it anyway, even it if kills me.

Music is my hot, hot sex – CCS

You guys think I listen to weird music, huh. J This is actually an amazing song though. It took me a while to actually enjoy it. Anyways, “Music is my boyfriend/music is my girlfriend/Music is my dead end/ Music is my imaginary friend/Music is my brother/ Music is my great granddaughter/Music is my sister/Music is my favorite mistress” Basically it’s saying music is EVERYTHING. I would say music is very involved in my life, and that’s why we’re writing a whole blog about it. I love music. You can listen to it when you’re bored, when you’re feeling down in the dumps, when you’re in a happy mood, etc. It’s amaaazing and it’s even like a chameleon-it comes in many different forms for everyone to enjoy.

Elementary school:

In kindergarten, I was very obsessed with Pokemon. Everything I had was Pokemon printed. I had Pokemon socks, shirts, pajamas, pants (?), shoes, etc. But I stepped in doggy doo-doo with my pokemon slip-on shoes and got very upset when I had to throw them away. I used to wear these hooded onesie pajamas that had a pikachu face on the hood. It looks more amazing in the picture rather than when I describe it in words
.

In elementary school there was also a short phase when all the girls started wearing those tights-like pants with patterns on them. They were kind of like tights but they weren’t see-through and they were made out of a thicker material. I quickly adapted to this trend and started wearing some myself. I think the popular choices for patterns on these pants were polka dots, hearts, stripes, and flowers. They were very bright and colorful too.

Middle school:

I couldn’t get myself to wear jeans until about 6th or 7th grade. Before then, looks didn’t really matter so I liked wearing those comfortable pants with the swishy material along with oversized tees. It’s actually quite an embarrassment when I look back at pictures of me wearing these types of clothes ESPECIALLY since I wore braces too. Yeah, it was very attractive. The t-shirts that I wore were in adult sizes and I was very small then, as you can imagine, so they were practically like dresses. The shirts went down to my knees and the sleeves went past my elbows. As soon as I realized how ridiculous I looked, I quickly threw those shirts away. Thank goodness!

I remember back in seventh grade (I think?) when it was cool to roll your jeans up to your knees and wear bright, colorful knee-socks. This didn’t last for too long and I think someone at our school started the trend. It was also very simple and comfortable so I don’t regret it or anything.

Another thing I wore during elementary school/middle school were those pants with the two zippers on them so you could unzip them and make them into shorts or capris whenever it got hot. These were very convenient and useful but I didn’t even like showing my legs too much so I always wore them as pants anyway.

I also remember being very attached to these shoes that they sold at payless. They looked similar to the adidas shoes with the three stripes on the sides but they were slightly different. They had metallic, light blue stripes and they were comfier than the adidas ones. I was very saddened when they stopped selling them at Payless and had to switch to different shoes.

I’ve always been into wearing casual sneakers with the flat soles. You know how running shoes have ridged bottoms on the shoes so they’re easier to run in? Yeah, I didn’t like wearing those types of shoes because they threw off my balance when I walked. I'm just not that coordinated. Plus, I like the looks of flat sneakers.

I’ve never been into super designer stores or anything. I was first introduced to Old Navy by my friend and since then, I shopped there all through middle school. I stopped shopping there a while ago but that was the main store that I went to.

I really can’t think of much more to write.

1.       Do you believe in karma?


Well, how else can you explain those “coincidental” moments where something bad returns to you after you do something bad also? That always seems to happen. These things can’t just randomly happen all the time so there has to be some sort of explanation. Yes, I do believe in karma. Isn’t karma also part of Buddhism? I’m obviously not a Buddhist but I still believe in it somewhat. I think it’s a neat idea. Why not? This is kind of off topic but there’s also a guy named Karma at our school. J You better not mess with him, I guess.


2.  What one current event in any aspect of world news do you think is being most neglected or underrepresented?


Definitely the whole Burma situation is being completely neglected by the world news. I actually hadn’t heard about it until this year in world history. Of course Burma has strict rules and doesn’t  allow any information to the news and the rest of the world but still. Shouldn’t there be more articles and concern in the newspapers? I mean, we have some information about Burma by sneaking in reporters and we know what’s happening there so shouldn’t the public be more informed? Instead, we choose to talk about stupid things celebrities have done and how Heidi Montag got a boob job. Who cares? I do admit it’s kind of interesting and funny but it’s more important to tell people what’s going on in the world that actually matters.


3.  If you could have any one superpower, what would it be and why?


Wasn’t this question already asked in a previous blog or am I going insane? My superpower would be to be able to do the robot and beat box at the same time. That would be awesome. Except if I had to pick something that I would actually find useful…hmm. There are so many options! The majority of us would pick the superpower of being able to fly but I think if someone actually did that around here, they would get arrested for being a lunatic. So I would prefer to stick to something more not noticeable by the police but useful at the same time. The superpower that I wish for right now is to be able to climb walls. There’s this one place on my roof that I want to get up on and it looks really cool. I still haven’t found a way to get up on it unless I use a ladder of course. I don’t know when else I could use the superpower but you never know.


4.  If you could invite any 5 famous people or characters to your birthday party, who would you pick?


I would pick Waldo from Where’s Waldo?, Homer Simpson, Bloo from the show Foster’s Home of Imaginary Friends , Mr. Bean, and Cheese also from Foster’s Imaginary Friends.

I basically just picked 5 random people who would make the party super random and crazy (hopefully fun). I’m a huge fan of the old Mr. Bean shows and I have stayed away from the new Mr. Bean movie Mr. Bean’s Holiday. Cheese is just straight-up crazy and hilarious. So is Bloo. Homer Simpson was a very random choice. Maybe I chose him in hopes of him bringing his Spider Pig. I have no idea why I chose Waldo, actually. Does he even talk? Or is he hiding all the friggin’ time? I would probably get really frustrated at Waldo. “Where the **** is Waldo? We’re about to open presents!” Maybe I’ll just kick him out of my party if all goes bad. I think the neighbors would complain about all the commotion going on at my crazy party.


5.  If you could live in any film or book, what would you select? Would you want to be one of the characters, or would you want to be you (introduced as a new character)?

 

I wish one of the options was to be in a videogame. Then I would pick Animal Crossing since it’s so happy, peaceful, and you get to chill with animal friends! That game is pretty boring but living in a nice town like that would be really cool. If I had to pick a different film/book I think I would be me in the Pokemon world! Heck yes. I would be a new awesome character and I would train Pokemon, fight battles with other Pokemon, catch Pokemon, and win badges at every gym. Plus, Pokemon counts as a film, book, game, TV show, and basically everything else. Everyone dreamt of being a Pokemon trainer when they were in kindergarten or maybe even older, right? Admit it. It would be freakishly sweet. I would definitely own Pikachu just like Ash and fight the Elite Four!!!! And no, I’m not a Pokemon freak thank you very much.


6.  Who of your friends would make the best president? I can't wait to know why.


CAMILLE! Just kidding. Sorry Camille. No hurt feelings or anything right? You would make an amazing trapped-on-a-stranded-island leader though. I think if any of my friends became president…the world would explode. I don’t know if any of them are capable of having such a big responsibility. To tell you the truth I wouldn’t pick any of them. Who knows? Maybe someone at our school will be elected president! Then I could be like “I went to the same school as our president _______!”


7.  I used to always trip out that my strawberry Chapstick tasted so strongly like strawberries (and why was I eating so much Chapstick?). Then I realized that it wasn't the taste that was strong; it was the smell. They say that smell is the strongest sense (and I agree). What is your favorite smell? USE CONNOTATIONS, FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE, OR ANALOGY in your (butter) saucey answer.


Doesn’t your sense of smell make up most of your taste? I think I read that somewhere and you definitely notice when you’re drinking something gross. You simply plug your nose and chug whatever it is down and you won’t taste it until you let go of your nose. Anyways, my favorite smell is…food? If you walk down Solano, you pass by some restaurants that have amazingly delicious smelling fumes from the food they’re making. Some people might pick something like “perfume” or “flowers” but when you smell food and you’re hungry, your mouth starts to water and oh my gosh! It’s amazing. Bottom line: I love food.


8.  Ignoring our budget crisis: If you could invent a new class for AHS to teach, what would it be? 

 

I hate that we’re going through stupid budget problems. A lot of classes are going to be cut and everything, which sucks. But if I were to have a new class for AHS, I would make a class that actually teaches useful stuff which you can use every day. This class would teach some handy stuff like how to fix your car when it breaks down or how to make a milkshake. Yeah, I don’t know but stuff you can really use unlike memorizing historic people in history and other shenanigans. It would be UC approved and whatnot and I think it would be super cool.

9.  Identify any symbol from any film ever (pick your favorite if you can think of many from which to choose). Identify what it means and why you picked it.

10. Will humankind still exist in 300 years?


Well, since I’m not going to be around I haven’t really thought too much about that. There’s that Aztec theory where the world was predicted to end in 2012. Woopteedoo. One year after we finally get out of highschool and persue our lives as doctors or surgeons…or not. That would suck majorly if that happened. All the work to get to a good college would go to waste if the world explodes or something the year after we graduate. I personally don’t believe this theory and c’mon, how would the Aztecs know this? Well, I guess humans could be completely wiped out from the world in 300 years. Who knows? Someone could try to make the most powerful bomb ever created and end up blowing up the whole world. What if aliens do actually come and destroy earth just like in the movies? Or possibly another ice age happens? I really don’t know. I guess at the rate that humans are going, humans could be extinct through an accident, but I don’t think something huge will happen like a disease that kills off everyone.

 

11. What is the most embarrassing song to ever grace your IPOD? Why was it there, may I ask?


My reaction: Ha ha!

I have so many strange and (lightweight) embarrassing songs on my ipod. I can’t really pick one since I have so many so I’ll pick two! One is “Bing Bang” (or something like that) and it’s from that one weird children’s TV show. It’s Crazy Town which is the one with that girl wearing a pink wig and it’s really funky. I’m not sure why I have that on my Ipod since I don’t ever listen to it or anything and I’m not too fond of the show. The show was actually accused of having scenes and characters that show subliminal messages which is totally not true but whatever. Maybe you should go listen to it? I think I bought it for laughs…I hope. My other song is “Chili Con Carne” which is a well known song by my friends. I originally found it on Itunes when I was browsing random songs. It’s by Acapella and it’s not there anymore BUT I HAVE IT! It’s kind of amazingly amazing although everyone will think I’m a creep. The song is all acapella with a group of people singing about making chili con carne. Don’t forget the Mexican spices! Those are some of the lyrics by the way. I thought it was hilarious the first time I heard it so I got my friends hooked. Bwahaha. I don’t’ ever listen to it casually. Don’t worry. It’s actually a REALLY bad song.


12. Did you support your answers?

Fo' shiggity sho I most def’ did! (I’m too gangster for this blog) Aaand sorry, I’m not writing a whole paragraph for this question.


I bet some jokester wrote about McDonalds or something as their favorite food...har har.

Anyways, I shall enlighten you on one of the best foods ever created. This is something essential in everyone’s lives, and it’s also what we all crave on hot sunny days. Yeah, that’s right, I’m talking about ice cream sundaes. (That wasn’t supposed to rhyme.)

Sundaes come in many different varieties, depending on what the creator desires. You have the option to add rainbow sprinkles, peanuts, bits of candy bars, gummy bears, and anything else you can think of. Banana splits are one of the most famous sundaes ever made.This type of sundae consists of a whole banana, scoops of vanilla and maybe chocolate ice cream, drizzled with chocolate fudge, covered in whipped cream, and to top it off, a Maraschino cherry. But this is only one type of sundae. There are millions and billions of different types, more than you can imagine.

Now let’s get to the part about where you actually eat the yummy sundae. Imagine yourself seated at a crowded diner, looking through a large menu. Lunch has passed and you’re merely looking for a nice, filling snack. You flip to the back where the desserts await you. Examining the lists of different cakes, pies, and soda floats, you finally get to the section you were looking for, sundaes. Feeling like it’s a suitable day to eat some ice cream, you decide on getting a sundae. Then you read through all the different types of concoctions, but you can’t decide on which one to pick. Because you are so indecisive,  you go with the classic eenie-meenie-miney-moe method. Soon after, the waiter comes and takes your order. Now all you have to do is wait for your food to come. You wait patiently and look at your surroundings to pass the time. Everyone around you seems to be eating a sundae, enjoying every tasty bite of it. You stare in admiration as they make satisfied expressions after each mouthful, as if they’re taunting you. Bits of vanilla-y goodness dribble down the corners of their mouth, as they lick it off with their tongues. You’re at the edge of your seat, envious of everyone else around you when your dream finally comes true. The same waiter who took your order came back again, but this time holding the thing you’ve been waiting for. You anxiously grab your spoon and scoop up some of the ice cream, mixed with bits of mini m&m’s and chocolate syrup. You hold the spoonful up to your mouth and take your first bite, savoring the creamy flavor exploding in your mouth. You bite down, crunching the candy covered chocolate into many pieces while letting the ice cream melt into your taste buds. You swallow, getting ready to take another taste of the sweetness. Unable to stop yourself, you keep on eating and eating. You continue to devour your scrumptious dessert until you feel yourself being lifted from your seat. With chipmunk cheeks and a rounded belly, you start flying into the air. The roof lifts open and reveals a vast blue sky. You keep on to traveling upwards, mingling with your fellow bird friends flying around. You eventually go so high up that you can see the diner way down below, which is now the size of a peanut, until you hear a faint hiss from beneath you. The sound increases in volume as you feel yourself slowly falling down. Falling, falling….

Okay sorry, I got a little bit carried away there. Haha. Anyways, Fentons has the best ice cream ever. If you haven’t been there before, I suggest you go right now.

 

Even Spongebob and Patrick love sundaes too! (Spongebob Movie) Goofy Goobers unite!
