The auction was interesting last night--the power went out about an hour and a half in, so we all ended up going home. (It was only out a few seconds, but our tower took a direct lightning hit and we had no more internet with which to WORK the auction, so we decided to call it a night and come back tonight.)
Free pizza tonight! WOOT!
The other night I was working on something for school (I don't even remember what) and I was typing "samples" and typo'd it as "smaples." This amused me. If I hated Canadians I would start using that as an insult in a punnish sort of reference to their flag--"those smaples!" would mean, more or less, "those d**n Canadians!" But of course, the snag is that I <3 Canadians. *huggles Kat and Hobbity*
Witness my mad MS Paint skillz! I made Shelly an avatar! But since she, like, never reads this anymore, and since her heart races for a different Josh these days (her RL boyfriend) I thought I'd post this in case some other Josh Holloway fan stumbles through.
Someone who is better at making avvys and can animate them should make one that starts out: "Fly Oceanic!" then shows the Oceanic logo, then says, "Earn free HEAD trips!" then shows a bunch of people running from various things, then ends with the Lost logo. Lol.
I made a PowerPoint for Fine Arts: Visual! Go me! Sadly, you know where I learned to USE MS PowerPoint? ...from watching Shelly edit her "Top 15 Guys" list. XD But hey, it paid off!
Poor, poor Van Gogh. (I researched him as part of this PowerPoint.) He was a genius (I have Starry Night as my email background ^_^) and yet he had such a sad life, I really just want to hug him and tell him it'll be okay. (Yeah, okay, I know he's dead. But you know what I mean.) I want to adopt him. (I'm seriously thinking of starting a list of people I have adopted--Locke, Van Gogh...)
I still hate that class. Mrs. Bailey: "Half of life is following directions, have you noticed that?" AARRRRRRRGH. So narrow-minded! So disorganized! *screams*
Okay. Okay. Accentuate the positive. Random quotes time!
- "These are the three mantras of Biology: Energy cannot be created or destroyed, there are no T's in RNA, and Dry is king." --Dr. Dry, in lecture one day
- "She sells seashells on eBay!" --Nico
- "Luge is the only sport where the winner is called the luger..." --Peter (a lab partner) during a "meeting" where we "worked on our presentation"
So anyway. Everyone on the planet (writers especially) should read Eats, Shoots, and Leaves. Even I actually got more picky about punctuation since reading it. ^_^ Like the sign hanging in every classroom at school:
Food or Drink
(Of course it's centered IRL.) What's with the capitalizations? It's a Capitalizer Run Amok! Gack!
You know you're obsessed with LotR when...you see a car labeled "LTZ" and the first thing that you think is: "Lurtz!" XD
I have to be at the auction in 20, so this randomness fit is over. Thank you for listening.
