Whoo. The internet works. Fastly. And guess what? After my sister's volleyball game the other day, my dad said there was something for me at home. I immediately assumed it was one of those kind of things where they think you're gonna be so so happy to get it, but it turns out to be your issue of Reader's Digest or something. So I was like "Yeah. Great." Not thinking that much of it. I get home, and my mom hands me Hello Radio. SHe said one of her daycare kid's dad said that he got it and knew he wouldn't listen to it much and knew I liked them, so he gave it to me. He's the one whose kid went the TMBG Kidsfest show that I turned down. *stupid* *stupid* So yeah. A list of them in a kind of order: Ana Ng Narrow Your Eyes Pet Name It's Not My Birthday Road Movie to Berlin Dead Another First Kiss Letterbox *after this they all start sucking* She's an Angel Don't Let's Start The End of the Tour Boat of Car They'll Need a Crane Doctor Worm I can't listen through Doctor Worm and They'll Need a Crane all the way. They're so bad. Ew.

Noooooo! No more House until October 31st. Freaking World Series. I lied. The picture of Linnell isn't from the beginning of the song. It's in the middle. During Gary C's big maracca solo thing. I asked Mr. Townsend for the grade sheet back today. More than once. He didn't have it. So no pictures. I like typing like this. But I'm not going to any more. We figured what was wrong with my typing thing today. It was me. Rather, my lack of reading skills. After saying to "key" lines something to something, it said to do other ones too. I don't get why they just couldn't say to do all of them at the same time. I'm dumb. Everybody lost the volleyball games. Every single one. But it was still fun. Hanged out with Sam, Bob, Marie, Miss Reeves, Kristin, Sara, Mandy. Mostly Bob and Sam though. Sam taped the Varsity game. I got STD from the library. The CD. Hah. I'd requested it. I got it, and I was happy because it looked all new and whatnot. And it was. Re-released on Zoe Records. It's very cool. And the liner notes smell nice. I foud it interesting that on the back, it says "Free mp3s and podcasts now and forever at tmbg.com." I wish I had the old release of it to compare it to. Man. I get excited about things way too easily. Power Rangers stuff was filmed during 7th period, not after school. Well, not filmed. More like rehearsed. It took too long for us to get all our stuff on and to try to get the camera to work that we didn't have time. But, it was extremely funny to see 6'5" Sam in black leather pants, a black mock turtle neck shirt, long, elbow length white gloves, and a Power Rangers lying completely stretched out on a cart like this only made out of all metal, with Jeremy dressed in green standing on the back, like it was a shopping cart, rolling across the school parking lot and pretending to bowl over Tony and Chris, who were playing henchmen. Me and Ashleigh couldn't stop laughing. If I can geta video of it, I'll totally put it up here. It was the funniest thing I've seen in a long, long time. I gotta go take a shower and go to bed. Bye.

I got pictures. Linnell and Flans. But one of Linnell is in math class. It's of him playing his accordion. From Gigantic. In the special features. Under raw footage. In the WLIR Cowtown performance. At the beginning when he's looking at the keys. COncentrating on the intro. I drew it on the bottom of a grade sheet I turned it. I'll wait for it to be returned to me before I post them. They're all in green pen. But it's kind of like a marker. Goodbye.
Typing class was driving me crazy today. I had to type about 6 sentences out of the book, without looking at the screen, and it kept saying that I had too many errors. I must have typed the dang thing 6 or 7 times, and the last time, I only made three mistakes. School was over before I ever got it, so tomorrow, I get to come back and try again. Yay. Not. Fastest I've typed so far, with the home row and a few other keys is 69wpm. I think. Volleyball games tomorrow. Yes. 4:30, 5:30, 6:30. JH, JV, Varsity. At home. It'll be fun. Filming shall take place Of the Power Rangers type At the end of school A haiku was that Though not very good at all I want some bacon

I have thought of what to type today for a while. I can't htink of anything. Other than that at 2:30, I left school with the JH volleyabll team, kept scorebook for their game which started at 4:30 (we lost), and stayed to watch TEH VARSITY. They won! In five games. They lost the first, won the second, lost the third, won the fourth, won the fith. They did awesome! Then we drove home, but stopped at Burger King to eat. There were a ton of us in there. And alot of throwing bits of things. On the way home, me, Carissa, Autumn, Dana, and Mandy prank called people. It was so funny. And now I'm home. My sister has a game at 9 tomorrow morning; I'll have to get up early. I'm staying up late anyway.

Here's a video I made. Kinda. I just had to give the program the pictures or video, and it stuck them together. ...called a muvee. Is strange. Ew. It made it all big and pixel-y. Dumb photobucket.
Here we go. My essay. It's...ok. Freedom’s Challenge The popular stories by P.G. Wodehouse tell of a young, rich man, Bertie Wooster. Bertie did nothing for himself; he relied on his personal valet, his gentleman’s gentleman, Jeeves. Jeeves did everything for Bertie from laying out his clothes to getting his bath ready. Bertie never worked. He didn’t need to. His family was rich, and he had never known anything besides wealth. By himself, Bertie was essentially helpless. Without Jeeves, he couldn’t even make himself a pot of tea. Sometimes, Bertie wore something that Jeeves thought wasn’t in good taste. Jeeves gently suggested an alternative article of clothing, and Bertie would usually resist. After a while, Wooster realized that Jeeves was right, and was always right, and gave in. Like Bertie, an everyday citizen of America could not fend for themselves if left unprotected. We need a bigger entity to govern and make decisions for us. You would think that, like Bertie, we would be tremendously grateful for the help provided. Instead, we are often overly critical and complain about our government’s decisions. I believe freedom’s challenge is to be aware of what’s going on around the world, to know our country’s history, and to appreciate the sacrifices needed and given to attain our freedom. It is hard to appreciate our freedom because we can’t, truly, until it is taken away from us. That’s why, on occasions like 9/11, we become more patriotic and are much more thankful for our freedom. We appreciate it when we realize that there was a chance of it being taken away. These days, we pay much, much more attention to the entertainment world than the political, but are so quick to judge the government’s choices. If we invested more time in watching Washington DC than Hollywood, I believe we would be slower to criticize. Taking interest in our government and its actions is one way we can fulfill freedom’s challenge. Also, because of our right of free speech, if we have an opinion about something that we want to be made known, we can share it with others. We have the ability to spread our feelings worldwide via the internet. Freedom’s challenge is to spread the pride of our country to others. We must also build a future for ourselves, learning as much as we can in school, working our hardest, and doing our best in life. Our country was founded on that fact that we are all created equal. We have the same opportunities, but it is what we do with them that is up to us. We must realize that our choices have long term effects and choose and plan out our actions carefully, taking into account their consequences. Our lives and lifestyles are up to us. We can become whatever we want in life. Freedom’s challenge is to use the opportunities secured by it to make the best out of ourselves that we can. ----- I've been sick the last couple days. Two days ago I left school early. And I screwed around on the computer a ton. And made a VCD of all the TMBG video's I've made/accumulated. It's cool! S' got menus and background songs. What else? Oh. We had breakfast today first period. Donuts and cereal and stuff. Fun. I think we're having waffles tomorrow. And later, cake. It's TJ's birthday. Yay. He's 17. The new typing program came in, and we used it today. It's WAY better than dumb ol' Mavis Beacon. Some things some people said recently that struck me as funny, or at least mildly humorous: Miss Reeves: What do adjectives modify? Heather: Nouns and verbs. Josh: Personplacethingidea...oh wait! Mr. Wright: Until some archeologist does some ...archeologizing. Emily: I think I have restless leg syndrome... in my hands. Mrs. Clark: Is anyone else going on the Keystone Bus? *points to kid* Are you Keystone Bus? Me: No, he's a kid. It's email time again! Doot-do-do-do doooo.

I am being forced to go work a my school's booth at the Apple Festival today from 4-6. It'll be ok, I guess. I'm trying to get my mom to go to the senior class's car wash today. Bob's got a dvd of all the Power Ranger stuff he's edited so far. I wanna see it! I have homework. Ugh. Algebra II. Factoring trinomials. It isn't hard, but it takes a freaking long time. I think I've already gone through three pages, front and back, and I'm only halfway done. Saturday morning cartoons are all dumb now. They used to be so much better. Oh. I have to write a rough draft of the Voice of Democracy essay thing by Monday. The topic this year is "Freedom's Challenge." Everyone in hichschool has to write one. I think I'm gonna liken Bertie Wooster's helplessness to the American public. Sort of. I hope it makes sense.

Filmed PR stuff. It was fun. I think it's gonna come out awesome. My sister lost her volleyball game again. I got the signed Lincoln today. Bye.

Wednesday, September 13, 2006

Stuff, stuff, stuff, stuff, stuff. What stuff? I don't know. I had three test today, in consecutive classes. Chemistry, Government, Bible. I know I did well in science; Mrs. Warkentien showed me after school. 103%. Good. Govt. and Bible were really easy too. Good. I unknowingly taped the new Linnell commercial while waiting for House to come on. Did I say that yesterday? I forget. And I have a Polaroid commercial starring Mr. Hugh from the early 80's on there too. Life's good. And now it's storming very much, very hard. I wonder if we'll still go to church. We're taping Power Ranger stuff tomorrow. Fun times.

I was just watching Ellen because Hugh Laurie was on. (yay!) And after his interview, Ellen did this thing about how the people in NYC are supposedly the most polite people in the world. She had a big couch in the middle of the sidewalk and was trying to get someone to help her drag it down the street. All of a sudden, I hear New York City playing in the background. It was just the chorus part, which makes sense, and it played through twice, I think. Very cool.

School, school, school. It's fine. New SBemail. Very nice. Lots of butt-patts. XD My sister had another volleyball game today. They won the first, lost the second, and won the third. The score was really close every time. And they subbed WAY too much. 33 times. It's hard to write those down fast enough. Especially when three go in at the same time. It was fine, though. Very long. We're starting video class Power Rangers again. Fun. Still no retreat info. I don't feel like typing it out now. That's all? Yes.

Saturday, September 9, 2006

Yay. AIM worked. IM me. valb3322.
I tried in vain (of course) to upload a clip of Survivor: Wannagechuback Island. We made it last year in art class, and it's like 2 and a half hours long. It was gonna be of the Snowman making competition, but my computer and photobucket are stupid. And now I'm trying to install AOL IM. Last time I tried, it didn't work. I don't know why. No more stuff about the retreat yet; it's still all mixed up in my brain. I hope AIM works...

Friday, September 8, 2006

Back from retreat. It was awesome. Lots of fun stuff. If I can find any pictures, I'll put them on here. I need to look on my friends' sites and things to steal theirs, for I don't have a digital camera. My class came in last in the obstacle course and third in the volleyball tounament. For some reason, I still have the map from the thing. So here: More details tomorrow when they're not all jumbled up in my head.

I've also been working on learning the Where Your Eyes Don't Go solo on the guitar. I only have about a fourth of it memorized so far. I can't move my fingers fast enough. I kinda wish I could take guitar lessons, but I don't want to at the same time. My fingertips hurt. Fingertips. Fingertips. Fingertips. I hear the wind blow... I hear the wind blow... It seems to say, "Hello, hello. I'm the one who loves you so." Hey now, everybody......
No new Labor Daybor toon yet. :( I watched a ton of Sbemails yesterday. And DVD bonus stuff. I love the hidden audio track for the Rock Opera karaoke video. "It's hard.. to do all these." I wish TMBG'd put out the next podcast already! Uh... I have absolutely nothing to say.

Saturday, September 2, 2006

I saw something cool today. In a strange place. Homestar bumper stickers at a funeral home. I was there today for my great-aunt's funeral. As my dad came to pick us up, he said he'd seen a Trogdor sticker on one of the cars in the parking lot. We rove past, and yep, there was the Trogdor one and the "Everybody to the Limit!" one on there. I wanted him to stop and wait so I could see whose car it was, but, obviously, he didn't. HS Retreat! Yay! Hugh Laurie wasn't on Leno the other night, but, he is gonna be on Ellen Sept 12th. New season of House starts Tuesday. Yay! EDIT: Just saw that I'd said 'new season of hose'. Jeez. XD

Mr. Spickler, my history teacher asks: "What type of government was England under in the 1600's?" Heather: "Communism." Me (sighing on the inside): "Monarchy."
Wheat Thins are good. Yay!! Three day weekend. It's a Labor-dabor. Maybe I shall stick a burger on top of a stick to celebrate. And say stuff to people as they walk by. Then school Monday and Tuesday, then the HIGH SCHOOL RETREAT aka AWESOMENESS!! Whoo! http://www.skyviewranch.org/ Best. Place. Ever. 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th all go at the beginning of school Thursday and come back at the end of school Friday. I can't even begin to express how amazing and fun and great this is. We can go horseback riding, on a zipline over the lake, paddle boats, mini-golf, basketball, ping pong, fooseball, air hockey, carpetball... It is so, so great. Get to hang out with my friends and get to know other people way better. We always have class competitions, and the seniors always win. It's tradition. There's an obstacle course we do together, and on Thursday night, the Senior Search. Everyone waits in the dining hall while all the seniors hide pretty much anywhere on the camp grounds. We have to find them, and get points for our class when we find them. *squee* I'm just so, so ,so, SO excited. Utter awesomeness. So many memories from the past two years, too. Like when Marie fell off a paddleboat into the lake. And me whooping on Josh Clark in air hockey. The class vs. class volleyball tournament and how bad Josh is at volleyball. Marie falling down into a ditch only to land on two seniors who were hiding there. Emily's horse pooping and not following the others. Kristin being so scared that someone was going to pull a prank on her at night. The grody orange juice/half cooked egg yolk-looking nacho cheese. Us making a huge mess at dinner, breakfast, lunch. The slop buckets. Heather biffing Kristin in the face with the tetherball. Watching Mr. Thomas fly out over the lake on the zipline Superman-style. Anna putting fingernail polish on Aaron while he was sleeping. Having such sore legs from walking up and down and up and down the massive hill. Watching Heavyweights on the way to the camp. Butt-n-heinie's fart in a bottle. People not having shampoo in the showers. Splashing eachother in the paddleboats. The campfire. Josh Cook flinging cheese and sour cream all over Mr. Townsend's body during an object lesson. *sigh* Great, great times. Can't wait.
