I Party!!

Haha.  Not really.




"I know for a FACT you don't party-  I party"



So here's me, at home.  Not out partying.  Why?  Because I still don't have a driver's license and my parents don't want to drive me anywhere with all the drunk people on the road... Thanks a lot drunk people, you're ruining my life.  And I'm totally kidding.  My life will never be in shambles because I didn't go to a party.  haha.  And I'm not even going to make a list of New Years resolutions because I know I'll never keep them, and I know how painfully boring it is to read some random person's list of resolutions... ;)
So yeah, maybe I'll have another movie marathon!  The geek in me shows itself yet again.
Happy 2012!  I wonder if the Mayans are right?

Bite Me.

You know how sometimes you have to "sign up" on some random website -that you'll probably never visit again- just so you can get whatever stupid and probably pointless thing you thought you needed, and will only use once at most?
They want your email address of course, but the one I just wasted time on wanted to know everything about me, including my blood type  (kidding..).  When that happens, I really enjoy putting in fake information.  Like my name- 
What's even funnier is when the "subscription confirmation" email shows up in your inbox and starts out, "Hi Bite Me!  Welcome to such and such website, hope you enjoy, yadda yadda etc.


love,
"Bite Me"

Homework fail.

The other day me and Flash were working on our homework.  I got bored around the same time he did, and started goofing off.  I took my pen and started drawing on him, and then he took his and began "sword fighting" with me using the pens to protect himself from the graffiti...
Shortly after that I rolled up my math booklet in the other hand and started whacking him with it.  He did the same, and our intense battle made it's way around the house.  About half-way through the fight, he suddenly  stopped mid-swing and was like, "hey you know what this reminds me of?"
And I'm like, "Yes!! That scene in one of the Bourne movies where he starts beating the crap out of that guy with a magazine!"
And then we're back to the battle.
k.  So then at some point, I leap onto the kitchen table to avoid being slain, and proceed to beat him mercilessly with my homework while pinning his arm back with one foot and trying to kick him with the other.
We managed not to break anything, which is a rarity.This is why it takes so freaking long to finish homework around here... haha.


I am now having a Star Wars movie marathon.  Watching every single one in order.. because I can.  The last of the newer ones is almost over, then on with the old ones!!

When a vegetarian has to cook dinner

Ok so I'm in the middle of trying to cook a whole stupid chicken for dinner... Not for me of course, for the rest of my family.
I really don't mind handling meat, honestly doesn't bother me.
Problem:  I don't know how to get the freakn bird ready to put in the stupid pot!  It's been de-feathered, be-headed, and pre-cleaned... But what am I supposed to do with it now?? Does that big wiggly awkward neck just stay there?  Even though I can't imagine eating anything that looks so, so, creepy?  Or something like that..  Am I supposed to slice it open?  The guts are out already thank goodness.

So After flopping the big slimy pink headless chicken around on a cutting board and trying to ignore the blooood (am I grossing anyone out yet?  heheh.), and poking and prodding it's pale fleshy skin trying to figure out if I need to do anything to it, I cut off it's neck and threw it in the dumb pot.  Hopefully that was the right thing to do?
 
Kind of like gutting a deer.  Except bigger.. and not really.
That probably would gross some people out.. bit graphic.  Never mind  lol

Old women shouldn't buy clothes for kids....

So I was in Walmart yesterday... That would be the place to go when you need a good laugh. 
I was wandering aimlessly, as one only can in Walmart, and wound up in the guy's clothing section looking at the t-shirts next to an old lady.  haha.  She had a couple laid out across her shopping cart and was holding up another and trying to decipher the curly "I'm a rockstar... um honest" type writing and design.  Judging by her selections she was clearly not shopping for herself.  She glanced at me and asked if I could tell her what the shirt said, it was like 'destruction' or something.  She was like, "Ooh I don't think I like that......" and put it back. 
I glanced at the other shirts on her shopping cart, and after a moment I asked her how old he was. 
She told me her grandson was in 6th grade.  I started laughing inside.  Well, laughing more..  I picked up one of the shirts she had picked out and I asked her if she knew what it meant.  This shirt had a row of stupid looking donkeys with a label under each one like, 'smart', 'wise', 'lazy', 'dumb', etc etc.  You may have seen it. 
She hesitated and clearly had no idea.  I slowly explained that the silly little donkeys were, well, rather rude...  XD
She wasn't getting it. 
So I spelled it out for her.  "This one is implying smart ass... this one is implying dumb ass..." etc.  I've never seen anyone stuff something back on a shelf so quickly.
A few minutes later she came over and held up an obnoxious t-shirt with a big ugly wolf face plastered on the front. 
"What does this one mean??"
"Ummm I'm pretty sure it's just a big wolf face..."


My toes got second degree frost bite a couple days ago- weird!!  They were completely white, they felt like little rocks on my feet.... And yes, I do still have all my toes.  Thanks for asking.

"Soylent Green is people!!!"

Watched Soylent Green recently... Somewhat typical 70's movie, with typical 70's acting and typical 70's trash...  Interesting story line though, something a little different.   
I watched the entire thing just to hear the last line in the movie, 
"SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!!!"




One of the creepiest parts of the movie was the date it was set in.... If I remember right, it was 2022, it's creeping up on us...  
~ Beware the little green crackers ~  Ooooooo0000oooo  ;)

p.s.  Strikes me as funny that this post comes right after one entitled "What the heck is for dinner?"  XD

What THE HECK is for dinner??

The other night me and my brother cooked a really yummy Thai recipe for dinner.. It was beautiful- Bok Choy, lemon grass, Shiitake mushrooms, carrots, Serrano peppers, limes, peanuts, and red chili paste, etc., and some lovely rice noodles.
There was also fish oil.  This was something new for us, and for those of you who haven't cooked with fish oil before either, a piece of advice:  DON'T SMELL IT. 
Despite the horrifying aroma coming from the jar of fish oil, the soup turned out great- spicy and amazing.


Part 2:  My dad has been sick for a couple months, and as a result can't eat the food most normal people eat (Mc Donald's is already out)... The list of things he can eat is a lot shorter than the list of what he can't, but he was able to eat the fancy soup me and Flash made (minus the noodles).


  This is dad.  Why does his bowl of fancy Thai soup look so.... weird?  After sitting and staring at the bowl of fresh spinach he eats everyday (one of the only things he can eat right now) with a rather pained look on his face, he unceremoniously dumped it in his bowl of soup.  I stared at him until he stirred up his now very spinach-y soup and said, "I'm so stinkn' tired of salad!"   
Poor dad  ;)

My sister is so cool

Goes by Pipsqueak here.  We don't get along very well sometimes, but I have a feeling that's normal  ;)  I think my little sister is pretty awesome, I'd like to take a moment tell you people how cool she is:

She makes the most amazing monkey bread from scratch.
She can also make really good butter.
She plants lettuce in the garden all by herself.
She can write her name.
She can paint beautiful pictures.
She wears Star Wars t-shirts and tutus.
She sings Switchfoot songs.
And, last but not least-
 

....She plays Armored Core, Silent Line!
Rock on, Pipsqueak!  :)
