Yay. I won an autographed copy of Lincoln off of ebay! Goin' to my school's sports cook out in about a half hour. In video class today, we watched the beginning of Survivor: Wannagechuback Island. The one we filmed in art class last year. edited it over the summer. It is very, very awesome. And Istanbul's the song on my segment at the beginning. Yay. I brought my mp3 player in to school to give to Mr. Wright to copy the Bible files onto. I only had enough room to get up to II Samuel. 300-something MB. Did I mention Mr. Wright has heard of TMBG? Once, I drew something in the corner of one of the pages of my test- it was a bird in a birdhouse and the lyrics I'm your only friend; I'm not your only friend, but I'm a little glowing friend, but really I'm not actually your friend, but I am... And he wrote "Put a little birdhouse in your soul" next to it. Close enough. XD Um... in Algebra II, we got these graphing calculators that do all kinds of weird stuff; they're different to use, but, Mr. Townsend said, in time, easier.

Wow. Mr. Wright is the most awesome guy ever! He had this quiz for us today that he made with Power Point. It was about himself, like how old he was and stuff like that. It was 15 questions; I got 7 right. The most anyone's ever gotten right is 10. Then he showed us the website he made for us to get a ton of our homework and assignments off of. Is pretty neat. I'm in the Old Testament Survey class. We gotta read the whole Old Testament this year. Last year, we read the New Testament. We can listen to it on tape, too, and he's got it in mp3 on his computer; he says we can bring in a blank cd or mp3 player and he'll copy it for us. I think I shall do that. There's this pizza place at the top of my street; it's gotta be low-end: on the side of the building, in big red and green spraypainted leters, it says QUICK~N~TASTEY. How pathetic. XD I'm off to dinner now.

Yesterday, I found $20 under a pile of cds and dvds and papers. I was extremely happy, then immdeiately angry/sad because I definitely could have won that ebay auction. One week 'til the season premiere of House! Yay. And Thursday's Leno. Shall add it to my VHS of five other Hugh tv appearances. XD I wish TMBG would be on tv. Like those commercials for JC Pennies that OK Go are in. Only Linnell dancing around a la They'll Need a Crane. They would No new Homestar this week, so far. The 10 years one was really good, though. The grape fairy's voice! Tee-hee.
Back from school. It's so crazy: it seems like the summer was just one long weekend and this just a normal day, except that we were being told the same things in every class. No awkward moments; it was like we'd all seen each other the previous day. Very awesome. We have two new people- both girls. 11 people total. Video class is gonna be great-- we're gonna get an editing program that can do green-screen. And another hard drive and video camera. Hopefully. On class procedures: "You can't say, 'Hey, I'm gonna go to the library.' Well... you can say it, but I'm not gonna let you go." - Mr. Wright. He's so awesome. I gotta stay at school every day except Wednesdays because of my sister's volleyball practice. *sigh*

Got all my stuff back from the fair yesterday. It was kinda raining the whole time, too, but more like a mist. I took the chance to be electrocuted and listened to music. I was bidding for a lot of 11 TMBG cds on ebay. It went for 41 bucks; I'd bid up to 30. I so woulda won if I'd checked back in time before it ended. The S-E-X-X-Y EP was in there too: Sensurround. I've wanted to hear that song so, so bad for a long time. Oh well. I watched some of the Emmys at my cousin's house. They have a nice widescreen-type tv with DVR or something that enables them to rewind and such. Jess recorded it for me, so I could rewatch Hugh Laurie present an award. He spoke in French! Or some other similar sounding language. The Emmy people are idiots, though. No one deserving won. Other than The Daily Show and Steve Carell. No Bryan Cranston, no Jane Kazmerek - that was her 7th consecutive nomination without a win and last chance with Malcolm. Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Musical Program: Barry Manilow Not Craig Feguson, Stephen Colbert, David Letterman, or Hugh Jackman. Colbert and Ferguson both mentioned it as they presented awards. Done with that mini rant. School starts tomorrow. :( I shan't be on here as much.

Saturday, August 26, 2006

Oh. I also read Men and Cartoons by Jonathan Lethem yesterday. if I find a good book, man, I don't do anything else until I finish it. My favorite stories are "The Vision" and "Acces Fantasy." And upon seeing that MyHeritage thing, I did one for Flans. Nicky Hilton??
Went to the fair. My parents went to that tractor pull thing which was horrendously loud anywhere in the whole fair. Poor them. It was like 3 or 4 hours long, too. So I walked around with my aunt and uncle and their two friends Tammy and Ron. Looking at my shirt, he said that he liked Them too. Yay yay yay yay yay!I've actually met another person who likes TMBG! Without me being the one who introduced Them to them! He also said that he'd seen them once a long, long time ago. I asked him if they'd gotten their backing band yet, and he said that it was right after that, but before Their fourth album came out and that it was at the Agora. He said it was a great show but, like always, stupid me didn't ask about the show or say much else about Them. But when we went into the art barns, I did show him the drawing, and he said it was awesome. Yay. Show was in June of 1993, I've just figured out. Man. I wanted to see what the setlist was. I thought that the pen I've drawn most of the pictures I've posted was lucky because it was the one I used to draw the one of Hugh. Alas, it is not. Proof: So I guess it's back to putting dog food in my shoes, huh? Or drawing Homestar wearing dog food-filled shoes. Uhm... I spent the night over at my cousin Abby's house. Jess and their mom stayed in their camper at the fairground. No more latenight tv for me. *sob* Bedtimes of 10 suck. At least I can still watch 'em on Fridays. Which reminds me, Hugh Laurie's gonna be on Leno Thursday. Squee! Yay. My sister's spending the might at her firend's house again! Quiet is so nice. XD

Friday, August 25, 2006

I forgot something last night. There was a guy with an accordion at the fair on the stage in front of the grandstand. He was tuning it during the half hour before parade started. I was so excited. But, he didn't play, after he tuned it, he put it back in its case and disappeared. I was sad. I couldn't become tired last night. At 1:30, I started drawing stuff. Then I drew Hugh Laurie in pen, which I hardly ever draw with. Took me about a half hour. AND IT ACTUALY LOOKS LIKE HIM! His body's all disproportioned though. I still like it. Shading with pen is really different from pencil. Harder for me, but it looks ok. The comments about golf are because they were interfering with Mr. Ferguson's show.

Thursday, August 24, 2006

First person who knows what my page title and sub title thing are from wins. Went to the fair. Had fair food. Dinner. Was two ice cream cones and a bottle of Vault. I'm not tired. *hops around like caffienated Gron Sad* I'm not tired. *twitch* I'm not tired. At least I'll be able to stay up for Craig's monologue. If I get offa here in time. Found a good quote in the TV Guide, I think. At the library. From Conan O'Brien. "This is frontier justice- I'm just handing out Emmys to people who deserve them. Hugh Laurie, I've told him to meet me in the parking lot behind the Shrine Auditorium, and I'm giving him- it'll say Technical Emmy for Lighting, but he can get another nameplate." Hugh deserves an Emmy, dangit. And he doubly deserves to be nominated. Yay Conan. Yay Conan's hair. I saw my friend/next door neighbor at the fair. We were in the grandstand waiting to watch the 4H parade and their floats and stuff. Joseph. His name. That's it. he talked to my family and me and then went to sit with his friend. Later, as the troops or groups or whatever they are, the 4H people were walking past- the ones that didn't make floats. And there's Joseph and his two friends walking in one of them. He has never been in 4H a day in his life. It was extrememly funny. He kept waving at us. XD More doodles. Because I can. I only realized today that I'd been drawing Homsar's feet wrong; they point in towards each other. Hence the difference between them in the two pictures. I like the little picture in the corner. *twitch*
It's my dad's birthday today. He took off work. Later, we;re going to the fair. We're going tomorrow too. Somebody gave my dad two ticket to the tractor pull. So he and my mom are going. They don't really like that kind of stuff, either. My sister's gonna be there with a junior high thing with our church, passing out tracts and the like. So, I get to roam around with my cousins Jess and Abby. And their parents. More pictures. All by me. The reason that there are so many Flansburghs is simply because I can't draw Linnell. He's harder. Not that I can draw Flans all that well... This thing freaked me out as I drew it. It was gonna be Marzipan at first, then a broom, then a reindeer. I dunno what it is.

Quick entry before I leave for church. I walked to the library today. It's about two miles each way. Brought the lappy (my mom actually let me!) because they've got free wireless internet there. Unfortunately, it took me a good half hour to figure out how to set it up so I could use it. Then I got to be on an hour before the battery died. I was thinking about asking a librarian if it was all right to use their electricity, but I thought that sounded kinda strange/mean/weird. And wasn't working either, so I didn't get to download the JBTV Apollo 18 thing I'd wanted to. I copied some magazine articles of Hugh Laurie. And requested John Hodgman's book. I was so thirsty as I was walking home, and I'd brought 75 cents to use with the copy machine; I had 55 left. Sadly, the ice cream shop thing I stopped at's lowest priced thing was a baby cone, and it was 60 cents. I coulda gotten extra cheese or bacon though. XD I also took a picture of that Linnell grave. I'll maybe post it later. For now, though, this: I think I'm gonna do a badly drawn picture a day.

"Don't! Grandma's getting crazy because she can't find rubber bands!" - my cousin Matt after I shot a rubber band at him while we were playing Uno. Ooh. Yesterday was fun. My cousins were up from Colombus again, and we went to the fair. W00t!!11! The Johns pic won first place for pencil/ink age 14-18. That's three bucks for me! 1st= $3, 2nd= $2, 3rd= $1. Hardly any people entered things. Too bad for them. The TMBG maze I made won first for computer graphic art. And a collage I made of icons, really similar to my background got 2nd. I got 21 bucks all together. Now, what TMBG-related thing should I buy? On the way home, my cousin Cassie gave me and my sister an update on Pertunia, her egg shell. And a brief history of their friendship. She found Pertunia in th refrigerator, she said. She cut a hole in Pertunia's head and blew her brains out with a straw, which she subsequentially made scrambled eggs out of. She painted her, and the next night they had a sleepover. Cassie did her make-up, and Pertunia did hers by having a brushed taped to her body. Cassie bought her a robe and dressed her in Barbie clothes. They were best friends. One day, though, Pertunia fell out of a purse and broke her head open. She is in a doll hospital in Cassie's bedroom awaiting surgery with super emergency glue right now. I hope she pulls through. *snif* Last night, me and my sister had a Homestar and TMBG drawing spree. Some of hers of TMBG to follow. It was kinda late, and we were tired, or at least giddy. I was laughing so hard as she drew these. It brought tears to my eyes. I can't explain these. This one was drawn first. I have some other pictures of hers and mine. Maybe I'll upload some tomorrow.

Finished my picture and posted it to . Linnell's mouth is screwed up; I was too lazy/tired to fix it; I tried four or five times, but it was 11 at night and I was done. I also had a TMBG dream, which I posted in . Yesterday after church, my family went over to my cousin's house, and then to the fair to take in my drawings and my cousin Jessica's rabbit and their other art-related entries. Jess's showing her dog in 4H today. Her family's got a camper on the fairgrounds that they're semi-staying in, which is really cool. I wanted to go watch today, but I can't. Oh well.

Saturday, August 19, 2006

My pic. Ture.

Teh Johnz as of right now: (I've been working on it for about an hour or so) The dark parts of Linnell's shirt don't really look all weird like this. I'ma go try to finish this thing before...midnight, or something.
Took this thing from . Leave a comment about some thing about my life you wanna know about. Like the computer I use or what the inside of my refrigerator looks like. I'll take a picture of whatever you ask and put it here in my LJ as a new entry. Ask about anything; I'll probably most definitely take picture/s of whatever aspect of my life it is you're curious about. Go ahead.
Yay. I made me a new background for TEH lj. Venue Songs is still awesome. I really need to get to work on the Johns drawing. Have to finish it today. And put all the other things I'm entering in the fair in frames or on cardboard backings by the end of today too. is cool. So, so funny. I had an eclair for breakfast.

Friday, August 18, 2006

Yesterday was a wonderful day. And very TMBG-full. Venue Songs and my shirt came in the mail. Finally. I'd mailed my order form in with that maze I made printed on the other side of it, for some reason. Someone started to write something on the packing slip thing that came with it. "Hey lady L" like they were gonna write something else. Strange. Venue Songs is great. I'd only heard the ones that were on the podcast and two others that were free tunes. My favorite one is Santa Cruz. It's so hard for me to remember the songs by their city names. I like the videos for Mr. Smalls and The Egg, er, Vancouver?, no Pittsburgh, and Albany. Two of my mom's daycare kids were watching it this morning with me, Pittsburgh- Richard's on Richards. The five year old boy, Nick, turns to Andrew, who's four, and says "Isn't she hot? That girl." Andrew says something like "I don't want to marry her." What is with little kids and knowing stuff like that? They shouldn't. Went to the mall last night. Wore my TMBG shirt, of course. Got a bunch of clothes for school and a pair of shoes. I can't stand shoe stores and the like. All the mirrors and glass tables give me a headache. I start to feel all sweaty and woozy when I see mirror's reflections out of the corner of my eye. It is strange and not fun. While my dad was in Steve and Barry's, I walked over to Best Buy. Found the BlueStock dvd that my mom said she'd buy for the daycare kids if I found it anywhere. So I got that too. I'm gonna make some icons soon from the Clap Your Hands on that and from Venue Songs. My mp3 player's up to 440 TMBG, Mono Puff, or John Linnell tracks.

Thursday, August 17, 2006

Oh wow. The video was faster in uploading than I thought. Here it is, with TMBG song wonderfulness in the background. Or foreground. Whichever. Oh. The small size makes a bunch of the lines disappear. Oh well. It says "bee" in the top right corner, if you couldn't tell.
Uh... I had a ton of stuff that I wanted to write about, but now that I've sat down to type it out, I can't remember a lick of it. Huh. Don't think I've ever used that expression before. A lick of it. Whatever. I've done some more work on my drawing: Flans's shirt. I was being very lazy and, as much as I like that shirt, didn't feel like drawing and shading all the stripes in it, so it's a solid color. I have to finish it by Sunday because that's when we're driving up to the fair to give it to the fair people. It doesn't look like the latch hook's going to get finished in time, for the 5th year in a row. Oh well. I really don't care. I loathe those fragments of yarn and mesh thing and strange hook-device now. Nevada by Mr. Linnell's stuck in my head right now. I don't really know any of the words though, besides "Nevada, Nevada, a somehting for every something. Nevada, Nevada..." And now I have just looked the lyrics up, so... whatever. Yesterday, my locker number and combination came in the mail, as well as my class schedule. *sigh* I actually don't mind going to school that much; my class is great, although some of them sometimes argue about the most... mundane?.. no, trivial... things. But they're so so so funny. Last year, there were only three guys and ten girls; this year, Vince is leaving, so that makes two boys. Marie and Amy aren't coming back either, so that would make 10 of us, but I think a new girl's coming too. If you haven't figured it out already, my school is small. It's kindergarten-12th grade and has about 180 or so kids. I like it that way, though; it's really great to know eevrybody's name and to actually know them. Here's my schedule: English PE Chemistry US Government Bible *lunch* Algebra II Media Creations aka Video Class aka Do Stupid Things and Tape Them Class (We actually do do things, once in a while. We're getting an editing program that's better than what we had last year, which was nothing, aka Windows Movie Maker.) Keyboarding - It is my opinion that I do not need to take keyboarding. But it is my mother's. Due to the fact that I don't use proper technique and semi-look at the keys. I can probably type 50-60 words per minute. I guess that doesn't satisfy her. Thinking about video class made me think of the short little cartoon I made in paint frame by frame. I think I'll upload it on photobucket and post it here tomorrow or some time relatively soon. If I don't forget. Oh. House's coming out on dvd soon. I need to persuade my mom to let me buy it; I have the first season, but she says it's gone down-hill in terms of content. It has. But it's Hugh Laurie. I like Hugh. Very much. I want the dvds mostly for its bonus features, and for screencap/iconmaking Hugh goodness. If she doesn't fold, I guess I'll just have to rent it from the library. Which reminds me, I need to go watch Jeeves and Wooster. Well, I want to.

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

I don't like purple, but I think my journal looks cool. It's been three weeks since I sent in my order for the TMBG Merch store. Haven't gotten my Venue Songs/shirt yet. Could it be because I ordered the "Holiday Bundle"? Hey, they still have it on there. Once it's been over a month, I'm gonna email Them, I guess. Should I? One of my mom's daycare kids, Andrew, had on a tye-dyed Joe's Crabshack shirt today. Another kid, Nick, asked him where he got it. Andrew said he made it. (Total lie) Nick asked how. Andrew said "Like Easter eggs." Nick didn't get it. Andrew replied, "It's an ancient Chinese secret." Haha. The kid's only four. He must watch too much tv. Oh crap. House is on now. Well, I'ma go watch that. And then work on my John and John drawing. I entered it in the fair; it's next week, and I haven't worked on it any more since I posted it in . I gotta hurry. And I entered some dumb latch hook thing of a dog that I started about four years ago and is still not finished. I hate that thing. Also, a few months ago, I was walking to the library, past a cemetery, and I'm reading the gravestones, and I see one that says Linnell on it. Intersting. I keep forgetting to go take a picture of it, cause I wanna post it on here. But I have no digital camera, so I guess I'll have to bring the video camera and take a "picture" with that. *dances* It's Hughsday! It's Hughsday! *stops dance* *runs to living room*
Today has been great so far. I had a dream-ish sort of thing about TMBG; I was halfway awake though. Unfortunately, I can't remember much of it, other than Flans and Linnell being in my livingroom sitting on the couch next to me and me holding/playing with Linnell's 10-or-so month old baby boy. It wasn't Henry. I got up at about 10, I go into the livingroom where my mom and her four daycare kids are watching the Blues Clues I got from the library. The BlueStock one-- with Them doing Clap Your Hands. The kids love that song. When that part was over, my mom rewound it and played it again. And again. And again. And again. And again. Six times. They were all clapping and stomping and jumping and, unfortunately for me, screaming in an ear shattering tone. Then, my mom went to take my sister and her friend to volleyball practice at our school, and I had to watch two of the kids. Most times when I'm left alone with them, I put on Here Come the ABCs. They love the videos and songs for E Eats Everything, LMNO, ang Go for G!. All Flan's, I noticed. They lost interest, though; one got out his gameboy and the other watched him play Sponge Bob, or the Fairly Odd Parents, or something like that. If they want to go down into the playroom, let them, say I. All the better for me to watch the DVD in quietness.

Sunday, August 13, 2006

I'm home. Got home at like 8 tonight. I made more TMBG icons on the way home- am gonna post them in a minute, read more of The World of Jeeves, listened to a bunch of radio appearances and watched the JBTV thing that I downloaded while having opportunity to in a fast manner. The Montana clip from O'Brien was gonna take about 4 hours on with my internet speed took 3 minutes with theirs. *jealousy* But it saved it in a weird format- MPGA. So if anybody knows a program I can use to convert them to mp3, that'd be awesome.

Saturday, August 12, 2006

I've seen the Pleather commercial here twice already. I guess Pennsylvanians must really like donuts. Or ice-coffee-gross things. I feel bad for Conan O'Brien, having to see an Einstein watermelon on a toilet outside his dressing room all day. Um. Yeah... Gah. Audio formats and converting between them are confusing. I need help.

Friday, August 11, 2006

Whee. Just got done with a 5 or so hour drive to Pennsylvania. To my mom's relatives. Am on their computer now, and it's FAST! I'm so happy. Listened to TMBG and made icons the whole way here; shall prolly post 'em later if I can transfer them to this computer. Fun, fun.

Pertunia. My cousin's egg shell's name is Pertunia. The morning after I made that mammoth entry, it was the first thing that popped into my head as I woke up.

Tuesday, August 8, 2006

Aaand... I just missed Craig Ferguson's monologue. Dang.

Monday, August 7, 2006

Ew. Apparently, my sister just dropped her bottle of perfume on the kitchen floor, and it busted. My dad just came into the computer room and open the door to tell me I can't go in there. (Duh.) Now it smells really bad. I hate it. Twice-times apparently, Homestar has teeth. In other more important and way less nasty smelling stuff, I'm kinda depressed/angry/sad/happy. Yes, those can all happen at once. My Aunt Krystal and Uncle Pat and my cousins Ryan and Christopher flew over from Kansas on Thursday. Friday afternoon: I went to my firend's birthday party. Was fun. We played Catch Phrase, badmitton (is there a good mitton?), volleyball, Cranium, watched an episode of Gilligan's Island (The Skipper loses and then tries to win back Gilligan in turtle races against Mr. Howell), and went to a graveyard and played frisbee (I know; it sounds weird). Friday night: Right after getting back from the party, around 10:30, I went over to my grandma's house where all the family was. (My Aunt Diana and Uncle Danny and Cassie and Danielle came up from Columbus) And my other cousins Sarah, Derek, and Matt and my Uncle Bruce and Aunt Maria were there. And Aunt Brenda. And Grandma. Some of the adults and Derek played poker. Went home at 12:00. My sister went to spend the night at Aunt Maria's house with Cassie and Danielle. Ok, this is gonna be like an outline or timeline or telephone line or something. Saturday morning-ish: At 3:00, most of my cousins, except for Sarah and Derek, and some of my aunts/uncles went to see Pirates of the Caribbean II. Very neat, but a little too cheesy - eg. the cages and water wheel. I sat next to my sister and Danielle- her watch broke somehow, and made this loud vibrating noise for about 10 minutes. Saturday evening: After the movie we all went back to my grandma's house. We ate dinner over there. Spaghetti. Played 5 or 6 person solitare. THAT is fun. Even though I miss a ton of plays. It's so fast. At about 9:15, we all went over to my aunt Maria and uncle Bruce's house. Had a bonfire and played hide and seek. Had to go home at 10:30 or so cause of church. Sunday morning: Went to church at 9:30. Got home at 12:15. Went to Grandma's house again; everyone was there. Had lunch: grilled foodstuffs: hotdogs; hamburgers; chicken. Weird punctuation is fun. We watched part of Anchorman. Played an old NASCAR game on the N64. At 5:30, me and my mom and my sister and my cousin Cassie went to our church's vacation Bible school. My sister and cousin were, erm, students, and my mom and I helped. Me with the crafts; she being a group leader. We had about 20 kids which was pretty good considering how small our church is. It was really fun. Sunday night: Got back to Grandma's house at about 9. We played solitare, Uno, and Phase 10. Card games rule. Poor Chris. When we played Phase 10, we'd skip him every time we could. No specific reason why. He never made it past phase 1. Went home late; my sister spent the night at Aunt Brenda's house with some...people. Quietness. It was nice. Monday morning: At about 11:30, I left with Uncle Pat to go to Aunt Brenda's house to go to Monsoon Lagoon- a waterpark/mini-golf/go-kart/bumper-boat place. Me, Kara, Cassie, Danielle, Matt, Christopher, Ryan, Uncle Pat, Aunt Krystal, and Aunt Diana went. We swam for the first two/three hours, then ate lunch. Went on the go-karts once, then back in the pool. They had a lazy river thing that was really fun; the current pushed you along and ya didn't have to do anything. Me and Cassie and Matt and Kara went on teh bumper boats; mine was the only one whose water gun worked. That was good. We went on the go-karts a few more times and then all played mini-golf. I have to say, it was the most boring and dumb course I've ever played at. Every hole was pretty much teh same. No windmill obstacles or anything like that. Then we went home. Monday night: We went back to Grandma's hose again to eat a late dinner; it was about 8. Leftovers. We started to play Phase 10 again, but my mom came and my sister and I had to leave. Chris and Ryan are leaving tomorrow morning, well, I guess now it's this morning, to fly back to Kansas. I really wish I coulda been with them more, although after reading this, you'd think I spent every waking moment with them. That's the depressed bit. And the sad. The happy was doing all the aforementioned stuff. Angry is my mom making us leave so early even though Aunt Brenda said she would take us home later. Oh. One thing: on the car ride to the waterpark and back, my cousin Cassie had a hollow egg that she'd blown the yoke and egg white out of. It was painted. And she named it something insanely hilarious that I completely forgot, and it's driving me insane. Will hafta ask my sister in the morning. Any way, she put make-up on the egg. Don't look at me like that. It was FUNNY. And here is a comic from this Sunday's paper that is great. Props to anyone who made it all the way through. Leave me a comment.
