uberniftacular: (Peanuts: Charlie Brown Christmas)
Merry Christmas, happy [insert winter holiday of your choice here], or just happy Tuesday, everyone!

I'm watching Charlie Brown Christmas while my dinner cooks. Best I can do this year, since I didn't get to go home to see my family.

But we opened presents via a Skype call this morning so it was sort of like we were together still, which was LOVELY. Technology is awesome.

Anybody care to hear what we got? No? Oh well, I'm going to list it anyway. XD
Loot! )

Parents are bringing little sister back into town tomorrow, and they're treating us to tickets to the Charlie Brown exhibit at MSI, which looks like it's going to be AWESOME.

(Also, they're bringing leftover cookies, pumpkin bread, and homemade baklava. SCORE.)

So, it's been a pretty good Christmas, even if I didn't get to go home.

Phew.

Today I:
- did my taxes (getting back like 120 bucks from federal and 60 from state, yay!)
- did my assignment for criminology
- ordered my sister's birthday present (eBay is a wonderful thing)
- ordered my dress!!!!!!!!!!!!! (which, after e-mails back and forth with the company, I have been told should fit me. and will hopefully be here in 2 weeks or so.)
- did some reading for my history paper which, I discovered yesterday, I actually don't have to rush to get done (thought I'd have to have the whole paper done by next Monday, but it turns out that my next biochem test is a week later than I'd thought, meaning I have another whole week to work on this paper)

Eric suggests that he wants a squid cannon.

I approve.

My sister informs me that reading "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" while under the influence of morphine is...an interesting experience.

I don't think I'll try it anytime soon, lol.

holy crap. my brother just found out today that he got the crazy huge ($10,000/year) scholarship to WMU. So yay for him!

"tankmage ftw!"

something else funny happened last night that I was gonna put in here, but now I forgot what it was. ah well.

going to Greenfield Village with the family today, it should be a good time. I haven't been there in years.

first day of school went better than expected. Natalie and Lyle are both in my chem and bio classes, Krystle and Rose are in my chem class too. archaeology looks like it could be pretty fun...our teacher is a grad student, and it sounds like she's going to make the class pretty fun.

I'm not the only French horn in wind symphony this semester! was disappointed to find out that Rick isn't doing WS this year, unfortunately...but one of the other members of Another Misprint (Phill, the bass player) is one of the clarinets in wind symphony, which is kinda funny.

my computer is being entirely retarded, it's really annoying. so if I'm kinda erratic about responding when you're talking to me online, it's cuz the compy keeps locking up and stuff and it's really weird.

went to Pizza Hut for dinner with Eric and Mum tonight...and Bobby Amble was our server, which was kinda goofy. I haven't seen that kid in years. I'd forgotten how funny he can be, lol. so yeah, it was kinda silly.

chem lab tomorrow morning, but no bio lab in the afternoon, thank goodness.

the nice thing about the schedule this semester is that I don't have to be up at 5:30 every morning. have to drive myself to school two days a week instead of carpooling with Mum all the time, but that's not such a big deal because I get to get a bit more sleep (which I'm really gonna need, with 15 credits...especially because of organic chem and cell bio).

oh, Eric got the job at the library that he'd been hoping for. so yay him.

for all you Davison band kids out there..remember that song we played my senior year, "Purple Twilight"? well, we're playing it in wind symphony this semester. And Dr. A wants Mr. MacLean to conduct it for us too. So that should be interesting.

Eric has a Tribble.
It is blue.
And fuzzy.
It lives on his computer.

my grandparents are here.

and I don't think they know that I'm here.

the rest of my family is at church.

they need to come home so we can go to dinner.

figured I should update, since it's been a while.

I spent a lot of time doing music filing today. and discovered that after 7 hours of being in a small room by myself, I start going a little crazy.

last weekend was mega-birthday-party weekend. Friday night was Emily's party, which was super fun...it was the first time I'd gone bowling in years. I'm still terrible at it, but eh, no big deal.

Saturday was Betsy's party...I got to see people I hadn't seen in ages, and met a couple more of Betsy's friends. Patrick was...interesting. very funny.

my mum and my sister are in Boston right now with their Girl Scout troop. the house is very quiet. and it's weird to only have 3 people at the dinner table.

I guess I don't really have much else to say right now.

except...2 DAYS!

it's been storming all day, I'm loving it.

saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory last night with Rachel and Bry. it was...interesting. and very random.

this morning my family and I went to the book sale at the library...yeah, we're nerds. I got like 11 books for $3.75 This is why I love used books.

Finished reading DaVinci code this afternoon, finally. I read Angels & Demons last week, and the day I finished it is the day DaVinci Code came in at the library. They're really good books, for any of you who haven't read them yet.

Our Harry Potter book came in the mail today! We weren't expecting it to come until next Tuesday, so we're excited about that. We'll probably start reading it soon, so I should probably get off the computer soon.

Going to the drive-in with Bry tonight, whether it's raining or not.

Part Shy Kisser


You *do* love to kiss, once your comfortable with it
And that means knowing the person you're kissing pretty well
You usually don't make the first move when it comes to making out
But you've got plenty of intensity in return

Part Passionate Kisser


For you, kissing is about all about following your urges
If someone's hot, you'll go in for the kiss - end of story
You can keep any relationship hot with your steamy kisses
A total spark plug - your kisses are bound to get you in trouble



spent yesterday at Junction Valley Railroad, for the first time in a couple years...played badminton with my family, and I hurt because of it. after that I dropped by Rachel's birthday party (sorry I couldn't stay longer!), then spent the rest of the evening with Bry.

this evening I'm going with my family, Amanda, and Loren to see fireworks in Bay City.

I just realized that I still haven't really said anything about France here. so I guess I'll write a bit...a list really, because I'm too lazy to try to write everything about it.

Things the French don't believe in:
ice cubes
air conditioning
washcloths
free public restrooms
drinking fountains
personal space
non-smoking sections
politeness (i.e. on the subway)

don't feel like writing anything else at the moment.

well then

my mum had a fight with my sister this evening. like, a screaming yelling sort of fight. because Rachel was being a little brat and didn't want to help with housecleaning stuff.

it was weird seeing Mum yell at Rachel...Rachel's always been kinda the "little angel" of the family because she's the youngest...so yeah. it was kinda nice being the good kid for once.

I was meaning to do some work tonight on the RP that Bry and I have, but I never got around to it. maybe I'll print out the stuff I need, then work on it after everyone's in bed...*shrug* I guess I'm feeling vaguely inspired tonight.

thing stolen from Brassie )

rock on.

Yep. This weekend was completely awesome, starting with Wednesday evening. Actually, Wednesday 5th hour even...yeah yeah, I know, that's not technically part of the weekend, but still. It was the start of all the fun. Bry and I were ridiculously goofy, I'm still trying to figure out why. I know I was in a childish mood, so that helped things. So we just goofed around all class, which was okay since we didn't do anything anyway.

Wednesday evening was the ecumenical service at my church, which I enjoyed (and actually wasn't bored, which is a plus). And afterwards I was hanging out with Roger, Teresa, Steph, Anna, and Ian, in various combinations, for about an hour, which led to much hilarity and hyperness. Ian must come to my Christmas party. He needs to meet more of my friends. We frightened his mother a bit, actually...because apparently me, Anna, and Eric are all a lot like Ian (which was brought up by my mentioning that Jonathan is a lot like Ian, which is frightening enough in itself). And we decided that part of the reason Teresa is as goofy as she is is because she babysat Ian a couple times when he was younger.

Thursday was Thanksgiving, obviously. We went over to my grandparents' house. A bunch of my dad's cousins were there, and mercifully, the Michalek kids were there too. So I was saved from being totally bored for most of the time, though the Michaleks left about an hour and a half before we did, so I retreated upstairs with my book, music, and brother, and we hid from the boringness of the relatives.

Thursday night after we got home, we decided we'd play a game of Monopoly, which we haven't done in ages. Rachel played for like the first time...it was interesting. Very quickly, we decided that God was laughing at us, though. Rachel landed on Free Parking (and got lots of money for it...yeah, I know it's not in the real rules, but still. whatever) three times in a row, which was ridiculous. We figured it was beginner's luck or something. And then Dad, who was the richest player in the game, landed on it three times in a row. So we decided God was laughing at us. The other time it was creepy was when Eric rolled doubles and landed on the "Go to Jail" space, rolled doubles immediately and got out, and then his very next roll was doubles again, sending him straight back into jail. Anyway, Mum lost really quickly, and when she did, Dad and Rachel were really rich, and Eric and I were kinda just...middle-class, I guess. So I proposed a business partnership with Eric, which we thought was a great idea until Dad and Rachel teamed up against us. For a while it was going kinda badly for us, but then somehow we managed to get hotels on all of our properties and send Dad and Rachel into bankruptcy. I guess the whole point of this gigantic description is, that's the first time I've ever played a game of Monopoly to its end, and we had fun doing it.

Friday, Laura came over so we could "work on our Civil War project." Translation: we worked for about an hour, then goofed off the rest of the time. Bryant came over for a while and hung out (he brought candy, I might add...), so that was really awesome (and, coincidentally, I had just put up the mistletoe a couple hours before...). Laura and I went shopping in the evening for Christmas gifts...it was fun just having some girl time for once.

Friday was also awesome for one gigantic reason...I got a letter from UM/F saying that I got the full-ride scholarship! The gigantic one that even has a $600/year book allowance. So I'm super-happy about that, since it means that I may actually be able to move out of my parents' house before I graduate from college. And I might even have a car too.

Saturday...heck, I can't even remember what I did most of Saturday. I did housework in the morning, then there's a couple hours in the afternoon where I don't remember at all what I did. In the evening, I went over to Bry's house for a while (Rob and Laura called us, oddly enough...they are stalking us, I swear) and then we went to see "National Treasure." Good movie. I highly recommend it. Especially if you like Indiana Jones, because it's got that sort of feel to it.

Sunday was kinda like a normal Sunday, really. I went to church, out to dinner with my family, then came home and did a bit of housework and some homework. Then I got kinda bored, so I went over to Bry's house again. He and Craig were playing Halo, so I just watched over their shoulders for a while.

Yeah. All in all, a pretty good weekend. And yes, I am done typing now.

yes, I've been thinking in Scottish since last night. it's good stuff.

musical was super-cool! and of course I've had its music running through my head since last night.

I <3 everyone involved in musical.

and I think it's very funny that of all the guys involved in musical, only one of them didn't look perfectly natural in a kilt.

my sister's over-enthusiasm was rampant yesterday...after the musical when we were wandering around talking to people, she definitely went up to Alison and Steve and asked for their autographs. Alsion thought it was cute...Steve kinda laughed at her. and then I laughed at him because he puts so many flourishes on his signature. silly kid. ah well, it gave me an excuse to be close enough to him that I could shake his hand, so it's all good.

I got to see a whole bunch of the college kids, that was pretty cool. Got to talk to Sarah, Brittany, Teresa, and Monica for the first time in like a year. and Graham was there too...he thinks my little sister is weird, which is really funny. I swear if that kid's hair was any more blond it would be transparent.

Reel Big Fish is gonna be in Michigan June 29 (Sterling Heights) and 30 (Grand Rapids). we all need to go one of those days. it would be cool if we got a big group together to go. what do you reckon? post a comment if you'd like to help organize, cuz we could get a great group of people together if we tried.

teehee

my brother is officially the world's tallest hobbit.

to explain: we ate dinner on the way home from QB today...and then when we got in the car to head home, Eric said "well I'm ready for dinner." I smacked him and said "duh, we just ate," and he replied "that was supper. I'm ready for dinner now."
