Divided

I think that one of the characteristics of a truly bad...anything ... is not being sure of who the audience is. D'ya ever see a movie that tried too hard to appeal to more than one audience? (You know, a movie that tries to appeal to the girly-girls and science fiction nerds at the same time. Not pretty.) Or a restaurant that tries to be sophisticated for adults and fun for kids at the same time. Dunno about you, but those coloring sheets look very out of place with those fancy plate settings and (gasp) napkin rings.

I used to have a friend who liked Miley Cyrus, back in the day when she was actually popular. "She's so cool, and pretty!" she gushed. I guess that was okay for her, but then, I was with her a couple months later when everyone was making fun of Miley.
"Eeww! Miley Cyrus! Worst singer ever!"
Yeahh......

I think it's okay to like something unpopular,  but you shouldn't be afraid to admit it. Don't go along with the crowd, and don't try too hard to stay out of the crowd. You shouldn't dislike something just because it's popular, or like something just because everyone hates it. Feel free to like what you like and dislike what you dislike! And you're still special even if you like something other people do.

This sends shivers down my spine...

That feeling you're about to die after you lean your chair back a little too far

The moment you knock over a empty glass, it rolls to the edge of the table, and is about to fall off

Gum stuck under the chair/ table

Vinyl seats

Getting wet at a wet ride at amusement parks

Calling people and getting an automated response, so you're not sure if you called the right number or not

Banging your head

Wanting to close a document quickly before someone else sees, but that "Would you like to save this?" message popping up and stopping you

Preparation


I hate it whenever I hear of someone moving on or slowing down.
I know what they say. "Retirement is change, a next stage of life, a whole new chapter!"
Nevertheless, I hate it when people leave their jobs, positions, roles, whatever.
Many people I have counted on to stabilize my world are moving on. They aren't retiring, (there was no retirement in the Bible, they say,) but I hate it nonetheless.
So many good people from the last generation are leaving their positions.
Why?
To make room for us.
To me, it seems that with out all these great people in my life, my life couldn't possibly be as good. Think about it. Think about the people in your life
Are you ready to live in a world run by them?
Are you ready to run it yourself?

Those whom you live with today are the people who are going to be shaping the world and the future. They don't seem like they're ready. But nobody seems "ready" to change the world if you ask them.


Keep that in mind. Prepare your generation for the day when everything will be handed down to them and you, and you suddenly have a world on your shoulders.

Are you ready?

Name Tags

Those HI my name is name tags offer for countless opportunities. Last night I was at a bunco party, I wrote Hi my name is none of your business.  Another girl wrote Hi my name is Inigo Montoya you killed my father prepare to die. I don't have the faintest idea who Ingio Montoya is, but that was pretty darn funny. 
Some more:
HI my name is I'm terrible with names it'll come to me in a minute

You could also put, HI my name is ____ and I_______ 
example: HI my name is Amaranthine and I like bacon

Try it the next time you go to a party. Trust me, it's fun and people notice!

Wanted

Singer, to be adored by the American public. Will be made into a movie and TV show. Required: Good looks, fancy clothes, immodesty, and a willingness to do anything for money. Singing ability: Optional.

That ad was inspired by this MLIA:

Today, my friend and I were listening to the radio and "One Less Lonely Girl" came on. My friend asked who it was and I said Justin Bieber. She replied, "Who the heck would name their daughter Justin?" I love her.


Proving, that, nowadays, you don't need to actually sing to be a singer.

I'm looking at you, Justin "AutoTune" Bieber. And cough Ke(dollarsign)sha.cough.

Pet Failures

We have never had any pets besides goldfish at our house, and never more than half a year.

The amazing goldfish chronicles begin here!
Lets go back....(time machine music)
2005
I'm extremely and abnormally excited because my teacher's orange platys
have just given birth to about 50 babies. I am 8. I have never had a pet before. I get to take two orange platties home, each of which are the size of my thumbnail. I have to ask the teacher for food because I don't have any fish food at home. The littler fish(I forgot what I named it) is dead within a week. Probably related to the fact that I kept both of them in a grape jelly jar. I cry like I little girl.(hey, I WAS a little girl) The other one dies soon after that.

Sometime after that.
We go to a church fair and I win a little goldfish, a little bigger than the platties, who I brilliantly name "Goldie".
Apparently, I don't learn from my previous mistake and put "Goldie" in a glass jar no bigger than my grape jar.
I realize how depressing it is when your fish spends a week sitting on the floor of the jar lying in its own poo and not moving/eating.
I'm sure you all know whats next. "sniff"

Several years later
Our Chinese teacher gives us a tank(along with some other fish stuff). YES! 30 gallons! Beats a grape jelly jar! I guess the teacher's husband set the water temperature too high, and boiled the fish.
We spend the next couple days cleaning out all the gravel and equipment they gave us, half of which would work with some major adjustments, and the other half of which wouldn't work if Thomas Edison himself would try to fix it.

We buy three, big, nice, fat goldfish. Socksy, Tangy, and Bernie. They are all big, nice, with fanny tails. Sweet!
Now I mentioned that the tank is 30 gallons. This is how we fill it:
We layer the bottom with blue marbles, arrange all the rocks and shells and plants just how we want it. We take the hose from outside and stick it in the tank and fill it up there.

I'm sure you have more to do then read about my goldfish adventures, so more later!

National Star Wars Day

Happy National Star Wars Day to you all! Apparently, May 4th is National Star Wars Day because "the 4th will be with you". Seriously, I'm not making this up! Why they picked May, I don't know.

Nick: "Shee, still pretty free with the orders, aren't we? What if I just don't wanna? What if I do like thinking about all that stuff? What if I want those people dead? What then?"
Mace: "Then I will beat you into unconsciousness and ask someone else."

Owner: "What's your name, little fellow?"
R2-D2: "THAT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. IN ANY CASE, YOUR FACIAL FEATURE SET SUGGESTS THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE TO RETAIN MY NAME FOR MORE THAN A NANOSECOND. IT IS EVIDENT THAT YOU HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO REPEAT SOUNDS YOU HAVE HEARD AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND NEITHER THE WORDS YOU HEAR NOR THE ONES THAT EMERGE FROM YOUR MOUTH."
―A shop owner on Vannix and R2-D2[src]


Etain: "Is there a plan C?"

Sharr Latt and Voort saBinring[src]

"Their force nearly equals ours?! Unacceptable odds! Order an immediate retreat!"
―A Neimoidian commander, displaying typical Neimoidian battle tactics[src]

Booster: "But you didn't bring my grandchildren."
Corran: "They're scattered to the four corners of the galaxy on Jedi business. Not my fault."

"Someday the Fetts will learn to stop wearing jetpacks. Someday."


"Styrofoam? Kidding, you must be. Insane you are, if getting on that deathtrap you think I am!" -- Yoda, after budget cutbacks hit the Republic fleet.


:D

Also, today is Audrey Hepburn day. No offense, but Star Wars owns Audrey Hepburn right out of the sky.

Now I have My Fair Lady songs stuck in my head.
Rats.
