This video, it is amazing; Colin and Brad doing "lie down comedy". It boggles the mind. Skip to 5:10 if you don't care about the volunteer choosing/genre gathering process. ----- Also, during the thing, we got to sit in the second row, and for the first game, Moving People, Colin picked my mom and dad to go up there. It was simultaneously extremely awesome and morbidly embarrassing.


Yeah, I just realized I never mentioned the fact that last week I SAW COLIN MOCHRIE AND BRAD SHERWOOD. I KNOW. It was really awesome. My family and my cousin went up to Lakeside the day prior to the show - mostly so my mom could see Sandi Patty. Bleaugh. And we stayed in a hotel that was like the hotel in every horror movie ever made. And we did other stuff. I will add more later. Mostly just want to post pictures.

My layouts, let me show you them.

I am going insane trying to find a good layout. I wanted one that had to do with The Office or Vlogbrothers or Daily Show or Colbert Report or Hugh Laurie, but I gave up. I like this one. But I think I'm gonna be changing it soon. If I find a better one. Bleh.

, I am forever indebted to you for showing me the pure awesome that is Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. My goodness is that stuff amazing. I have fallen in love with NPH. And the songs! They're so great. Especially "Brand New Day". I love the really fast, almost spoken lyrics. Reminds me of the Music Man. He's a what? He's a what? He's a music man And he sells clarinets To the kids in the town With the big trombones And the rat-a-tat drums Big brass bass Big brass bass ChaCha is frustrating me with all their error pages. But I've gotten one step further tonight than I was before. And I am now able to go onto the forum on there. And I saw that tens of people are having the same problem I am. So... it's... ok. SERENITY NOW. And, um, that thing yesterday was from an AIM discussion between me and my sister. I don't know how I came up with that stuff. I like them. They make me laugh.

Oh yeah.

I am 18 now as of the 17th. Also, graduation thank you notes compounded with birthday thank you notes suck. And. Kara had her birthday party yesterday. Her birthday was on June 21st, but whatever. At the All-American Sports Center. Ate cake and played miniature golf and arcade games. It was alright. I am in love with Mainly because of the interactivity with the youtube vlog universe it provides. But also because of Darin. He's so great. He's hilarious, is an awesome photographer, sings and plays guitar, and is bold about his faith. He initiates discussions with people about the Bible/Christianity/God and is so zealous about it. I wish I had the same tenacity that he does. I love talking to him.

There is no sun in Toddland.

Ah, Mr. Toddly00, thou dost slay me with thy hoodlum antics. I should go to bed. Is 6:30 am.... Yup.

Old video games were cool.

So a week ago, I had this weird blast of memories that came from nowhere about how I'd always go over to Tuckers' house, and Joseph and I and Jonathan would play all these awesome games that they had on their Windows 95, or maybe 98 PC. Games like: Tyrian. It took me a really long time to find this one, and of course it was the one I was most set on finding. Joseph and I would play this for hours and hours. And we wouldn't let Jonathan play, and he would cry. And when we did let him play, we always made him be Player 2 and have the big fat wide ship. I've played it for at least ten hours already. I beat it on easy. Go me! Rodent's Revenge. Joseph loves this game. It's pretty fun. I am not very good at it though. SkiFree. Frikkin snow monster. I hate you!

*shakes fist*

Mr. Nerimonghoover, you are driving me CRAY-zee. Alex is some kind of frikkin' manipulative, plot-making genius.

I did this thing a few weeks ago for a contest that Weezer's street team was having, taking 10 screencaps of sites where I'd put their new album banner and emailing it to them. Five random people who did that were picked to win signed copies of the Red Album. And they just announced the winners through an email. And I was one of them! How cool is that? But I already bought a copy of it. So that kind of stinks. But still!

There is this most amazing website with this most amazing service, You text any question to their number, 242242, and in minutes you get an answer. You can ask pretty much anything; I asked what the date of the episode of The Colbert Report was when Stephen signed a giant check with a giant pen, and they answered in like a minute. It's done by people online, using search engines and such. It's all free except for normal text messaging prices obviously. And I'm gonna apply to be one of the answer givers, called ChaCha guides. But I have to wait a week until I'm 18. They get paid 20 cents per answer. I would probably even do it for free; it's exactly everything that is interesting and fun to me. Basically getting paid to learn random trivia and help people. Awesome.

...when the last living reader, a Civil War veteran and creamed corn enthusiast, died.

I need to update but have nothing to say, so you get this. And by you, I think I mean future me, because no one reads this any more. I have a birthmark on the back of my left wrist. It's really more a collection of freckles, and they make a horizontal rectangle shape, maybe one and a half-ish centimeters long. I like it. It's lighter now though because I have been a hermit recluse and not gone out in the sun very much so far this summer.

Writer's Block: Just Desserts

Pie! Heated! A la mode! Yay! My new laptop came in the mail yesterday! Yay! I like it. It's so much faster to open programs and to switch between them. Yay RAM! That's about all I can think of. I didn't see any fireworks last night. I stayed home. So I probably won't see any at all. Except for idiots lighting them off in the street. I took pictures of light painting which is super cool and is when the camera has a long exposure time, and it's dark, and you shine a laser/light/whatever around, and you can write stuff and such. It didn't work that well because I can't change the exposure time on my camera other than by setting it to night mode which is only four seconds. Perhaps I'll upload some later.

When they come and get me, I'll be ok, fine. Puttin' on some weight, great.

For the last week, I've been taking drivers ed. Where does the apostrophe go in drivers? I don't know. But it has been TEH HORRORZ. Not fun at all. For the first four days I went, Tuesday to Friday, there were at least 20 kids in a tiny room that was very hot and somewhat cramped. People are so freaking disrespectful. Literally every two minutes, this one kid kept interrupting/being "clever"/talking. He was so dumb. The teacher, the first day, I swear, told him at least twenty times that if he said one more thing, she would kick him out. But of course she didn't. And she was literally screaming at the kids to shut up. And it sucked and was seriously the worst thing I've ever had to sit through. And it was four hours long. Four times. I missed the first lesson, so I took that one today and haven't taken the last lesson yet because I have to take the test then. Satureday Was my graduation praty. It was fine. We had tent-y things in our backyard and in Tuckers'. Three of my cousins and uncle and also another aunt came up from Columbus. So that was cool. But then it rained really hard for a half hour. But it was ok. We have a large amount of food left over. Baked beans, chicken, applesauce, macaroni salad, fruit salad, and sloppy joe meat. After the party, Jonathan stayed over our house, and I opened presents and then all the cards I'd gotten. Jonathan and Kara put all the cards in a pile and would each pick one they thought would have a lot of money in it, and then I'd open them, and then whoever had the most won. And we did that for all the cards. And Jonathan won. Then we went over to his house and brought his Playstation 2 and Rock Band over, and we played that for a long while. And we ate pretzel sticks which we also have an abundance of. And then he drank all our juice boxes. And then he left. Sunday Went to church, went home and ate, went to Cecilia's graudation party which was at a park, ate, attempted to skip rocks in the lake, failed somewhat, threw crackers into the lake, took pictures of a herd of geese, left, went to Abby and Jess's house, played with their dogs, went over next door to the barn to help Jess do stuff with her horse, took picture of a chicken, took picture of a cat, took picture of a horse, watched Jess ride her horse around, went back to their house, played with their dogs again, sat on the floor of the back of the van because Abby came home with us and we'd taken out the back seat to put stuff in there, listened to Ozma which is an AWESOME band, got home, went on internet, did week's worth of college work in an hour and a half, perused the internets, made my dad's lunch, took a shower, went to sleep. Run-on: Y/N? Monday Driving school started at nine. Very much too early. And went until one. Too long, Clanky, too long. And the instructor who was a man whose name was Kelly, didn't give us a break. And I was planning on having one. To eat breakfast. The guy was strange. He called everyone dude, and referred to people in examples as either dudes or cats. And he called anybody that was under, like, our age babies. It was hilarious. There were only seven other people in the class, I think, and it was quiet and stuff. But that guy was so weird. I wrote down stuff that he said because it was that awesomely strange. There was a girl, Leah - he kept asking us what our names were and made random people list off everybody in the class, so I think I still remember everyone's name - who came in late, and he kept smelling the paperwork she'd given him and telling her he liked how it smelled and that it made him happy and was it perfume? She said she didn't know, maybe it was lotion. And he goes, "You know how this makes me feel? It makes me feel happy. Lotion is good. Everybody wear lotion." He asked us if we thought accidents were the #1 cause of death of teens. Are we sure it was that? And then he said that maybe "being decapitated by amusement park rides" killed more people. But he said no. Driving kills more. More than cancer, more than heart failure, more than polio, more than pancreatitis, more than the Rhino virus, also known as the common cold. "Don't kill no dudes while you're drivin', 'cause that would be sad." Goodness. And he talked for like fifteen minutes about why smiling is good, and who one girl reminded him of that he couldn't remember, and how he got made fun of when he was a kid because of his name, "My friends all said Kelly is a girls name, and I asked my mom and she says, 'No, Kelly is a girl's name and a dude's name. Then I told them 'My mom said it's a dude's name and a girl's name' and they says 'No. It's a girl's name.'" And when he asked us questions off the test, and we raised our hands if we knew the answer, he told us that's not how we were supposed to raise them, hold them up higher, and he kept telling us that until everybody did it, and went on explaining the answer, and when one kid put his hand down, he told him to put it back up again. lolz He made one kid go out to his car in the parking lot to get him a blowpop from his glove compartment. The guy's name was Eric. And Kelly kept calling him "my dude" and said that he was going to be a Marine because he took charge and led. He was talking about the general law thing that you are supposed to drive at a speed to go along with traffic to be safe. He said there were times when you shouldn't go the speed limit because it wouldn't be safe. Like if you're going by a daycare center, and the babies is going on a fieldtrip, and there's a line of babies walking along the side of the road, you slow down to a reasonable speed. Or! If you're driving down the road - he made us sit forward in our chairs and our hands out in front of us as if we were holding a steering wheel - and over there is a McDonalds and over there is a Holiday Inn hotel thing. You see the McDonalds over there? And in front of you, a school bus crashed. And it's on fire. And smoke is billowin' out all over the place. And babies is climbin' out the windows. lolwut? That's my new favorite phrase. And babies is climbin' out the windows." That guy was hilarious and very probably brain damaged from drugs or something. I don't know. It was awesome. AND THEN I waited outside for fifteen minutes in the rain because my mom very obviously does not like me and was late. Kara and I went next door and played Rock Band again. I can play guitar on medium well and can play and not fail on hard. Video! John Green! Vlogbrothers! Adorable puppy! Inside jokes! An obscure language! Awesome!
