at this point, writing is like an abstract concept.

Yo! I have a lot to tell you guys and I went to a party and drank a lot of Coca Cola, and before that I read like half of Order of the Phoenix and so I don't really have the mental capacity to write my usual, well ordered, edifying, and grammatically correct paragraphs. So I will make a bulleted list.


Bulleted lists are used to create the illusion of order in writing, even when the actual writing behind the bullets is completely incoherent.

See, if you write a;2-afhl;ds;afjj;]][dp]daspf20g;asahdfhslafshj, people will think that your cat is dancing across the keyboard or something, but if you write:






  • a;2-afhl;ds;afj 
    •  j;]][dp]d
    • aspf20g;as
    • ahdfhsl
    • afs
    • hj,


    people will think it's some sort of secret code and the problem lies with them and not you.


    Anyways, here's the list.


    •  Dolores Umbridge is so weeiiiirrrd!(and evil and freaky)
    • http://www.hp-lexicon.org/images/film/op/umbridgeoffice-72dpi.jpg 
    • I love sailing at the Newport Sea Base! There's no other feeling. Also, the Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts of America are like the greatest institution ever. I feel so comfortable around other scouts. We're funny, creative, quick-thinking, we have awesome songs and we plan great parties! Our instructor, a Sea Scout named Dylan is so sarcastically hilarious.

    • Some other sailing class at the Sea Base declared war on us! We're sailing Flying Juniors(like above picture). They were sailing RS Fevas. We splashed water at each other from our sailboats and we even capsized one of them! ;) 

    • I love Acrobatic Jazz! We're working on back bends(from standing up, duh) XD and front limbers now.

    •  I watched Avatar last night. Meh. Definitely not the next Star Wars.
    • We had a swim meet today! I improved my times by like one second. XD 

     I'm supposed to be entering this short story contest where I can win 250 bucks. It has to involve a library somehow. I have a few ideas but they suck. How about you?

    And that, my friends, is where the title of the post comes from.

    Later,

  2. Loving the bullet list. They are quite efficient, no?

    Sounds like you're very busy.....;) I can relate! Have a great time in acro-jazz and sailing! :D

  3. Library.... throw some magic in somehow. Places full of books and magic seem to go well together.

  4. Finally. The concept of bulleted lists makes sense. (; And your explanation of a cat dancing across the keyboard is hilarious!

    Umbridge is definitely creepy. I think the woman they cast for her in the films is a great match for her, though. Good luck with the short story contest!

  5. LOL I love bullet lists! XD

    I do not like Umbridge. She is mean and makes me angry.
