Who would win in a fight?

I STILL don't have time or concentration for a regular blog post so this one will be short.

So, I'd just like to say that my percentages are high enough to not have to go to school for the rest year. :-)

My parents, on the other hand, have other ideas.


Today was a Melli/Gabbi night, which is where my sister and I hang out every Wednesday evening. We spent practically the whole time playing New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
If anyone has tips for getting through World 9, let me know.

Happy Birthday to my Aunt, whose age I am not allowed to tell you.

My condolences go out to Wakwy and Skandar.
Skandar, I hope you feel better!

Random, but I love Lady GaGa's new song, "Alejandro".

And lastly, thanks Kyle for inviting me to an e-banquet!
My dress.
Only we were thinking Midnight Blue for the color.
Thanks Mika for helping me choose a dress. :-)

My Life Is Average

I confess, I didn't have enough time or concentration to write a blog post today.
Instead, quotes from http://mylifeisaverage.com/.

Today, my friend told me he found out there's a furniture store named "Sofa King Furniture Store". Guess what their motto is? "Where the prices are SOFA KING low!" MLIA.

AHAHAHAHA! Best slogan I have EVER seen!

It's amazing what kids know nowadays. Just now, while reading MLIA stories, I heard the tv. My brother was watching Codename Kids, and for some reason one of the kids said, "It's too hard. It wont fit through the whole! It's the wrong shape!" To my amazement, my brother, sick, said with a straight face, "That's what she said." My brother is four and a half years old.

I blame Hanini for the corruption of our youths.

Today, I was sitting at school reading MLIAs about the Google vs. Yahoo war. I decided to find out what "school is..." in this battle. According to yahoo, school is open. According to google, school is the fiery depths of hell used to frighten the small children into oblivion. I believe we have our winner. MLIA.

Google never lies. . .

Today i was in media communications class talking before the lesson started, when the teacher walked in he couldn't get our attention so he decided to try and do a cartwheel over a chair to get us to notice him. he did it, stumbled and fell into the door, through the door; and into the hall, landing on his face. It got our attention. MLIA

Would certainly get my attention.

Today I was walking into my kitchen to throw my pudding cup away. I opened up my silverwear drawer and put it inside...I don't know why. MLIA

Once, I put a box of uncooked spaghetti underneath the kitchen sink. After about two weeks of searching, we finally found them. Later my mom had me clean up the kitchen and I put the spaghetti back underneath the sink. Fail.

My roomates lit the couch on fire in our dormroom. When they realized they couldn't put it out they tossed the couch - on fire - out the second story window. The dean actually thanked them for their quick thinking avoiding the entire dorm catching on fire.

Sounds like great roommates . . . . .
And a great dean.

Today I was filling out College Applications. I was asked to list all the languages I speak. I said English, British, Canadian, and Australian. MLIA

I can speak all of those!

The other day my boyfriend and I were watching the movie Grease. While Danny and Sandy were singing Summer Lovin', he suddenly says "Wow...Danny and John Travolta look a lot alike!" MLIA

OMG they do!

I was looking at Gifts.com and came across a clock that runs away from you (on wheels) before you can turn it off so you have to get out of bed. I think this may be the smartest invention of all time. MLIA

I definitely need one. . . .

Today, my boyfriend gave me an early Valentine card. It was folded up on a peice of paper. When I opened it, all I saw was a math equation and the words, solve it. The equation was 2i<3 x 2u. I solved it and got i<3u. He's such a nerd. MLIA


Today, I tried to pull a prank on my friend Libby. I told her she had Updock in her hair, expecting her to say "What's updock?" like Bugz Bunny. Instead, she kept saying "what's that?" until she evntually yelled "WHAT THE F*CK IS UPDOCK??". The room went silent, then one of my friends said "Whoa, Bugz Bunny got angry..." MLIA.


Today I was working at McDonalds and happened to walk passed the drive-thru window; five 18/19 y.o. boys had 'pulled up' in perfect formation of a car - 2 in the front, 3 in the back - but were not actually in a car. As the 'car' pulled up, I watched as the 'driver' put his 'handbrake' on, manually wind down the 'window' and begin his order. The guy who was at the window, and is extremely strict, told the boys he would not serve them because they were not in a car. The 'driver' then proceeded to wind up the window, change into reverse gear and reverse out of the drive-thru. The guy in the 'middle seat' even ducked so the driver could see behind him. The guys kept straight faces the entire escapade. I would have served them purely for their unforgettable entertainment, so thank you mystery boys, for making my day. :D MLIA

I SO wanna try that now!

Today in science, we were talking about forensics. I was curious about the developed technology and asked if there was a way to kill someone without leaving any traces of DNA. The entire class fell silent. I'm 4'11" and pretty much the tiniest person in my grade. Yet, by the end of the day, every one was pretty sure I was a serial murderer and was scared of me. MLIA

It’s always the short ones that are the most deadly. . .

Today I found out that when I was three years old I punched another kid in the face. My mom happened to be watching along with his mom. My mom started apologizing to the kid's mom and the woman said "Oh please. There happens to be a strong confident women here. I'm sure my boy was totally asking for it. She will go places." Thanks. And yes he did. He stole my stuffed Squirtle. MLIA.

What an awesome mom.

Today I was talking to my therapist about how I wanted to possibly start talking to a different one, she told me she would give me the number to her therapist. MLIA

What if the therapist’s therapist has a therapist?

Today, while waiting for my dad to have an epic WII Tennis battle, I decided to try playing with both remotes. After successfully completing two rounds I screamed, "This is Awesome! I'm playing with myself!" to my entire house. Nobody wanted to play after that. MLIA


Again, I apologize for the lack of real blog today.

The Awesomeness That Is Skillet

Happy Earth Day wonderful blog readers!
Even better than Earth Day,
well not about the fact that it's my 14th and 1/4th birthday. . . . .
Anyway, another good thing about today is that the awkward first post is over with! I can now move on to the awkward second post!
Ok, so a lot of you know (I hope) that I'm going to see Skillet in concert soon!
And even though it's a long ways away, I am dedicating today's post to them. Hopefully there'll be some more pan heads after this.
So Skillet is basically this really awesome Christian rock band that I've been listening to the past couple months. The band consists of the lead singer and bass player, John Cooper <3, his wife, Korey, who is a backup vocalist and plays the keyboard; rhythm guitar; and synthesizer, the lead guitarist, Ben Kasica, and the drummer and backup vocalist, Jen Ledger.
Their latest album was released in August of last year, and they are currently on tour to promote it.
This is their first single, "Hero"

And their second single "Monster"

And their final single from the album, "Awake and Alive"

And the track listing for Awake
1. "Hero"
2. “Monster”
3. “Awake and Alive”
4. “Forgiven”
5. “It’s Not Me, It’s You”
6. “One Day Too Late”
7. “Lucy”
8. “Never Surrender”
9. “Don’t Wake Me”
10. “Sometimes”

And finally, a shoutout to all my fellow pan-heads.

Welcome to the World of Edgey!

I gave in.
I've finally created my own blog.
I haven't really gotten the hang of this yet, so I'll just post a story of what happened last night at my grandma's birthday party last night.
So it was my grandma's birthday yesterday, and she's Mexican, so she wanted to go out to eat at a Mexican restaurant.
We get there and I helped my cousin with her math homework.
So then, everyone ordered (I got a beef taco and beans. Yum!)
Halfway through with my food, my sister whispers to me that somehow I need to tell them that it's my grandma's birthday. So I ask my cousin if she'll come with me to go "to the bathroom".
I started heading towards the front of the store, until my cousin stopped me.
"Uh, the bathrooms are this way," and she points in the opposite direction.
This was going to be harder than I thought.
We went to the bathrooms and created a plan. So I went and asked my grandpa for the car keys so my cousin and I could "grab something from the car".
We headed out to the car and I grabbed the only thing I could think of.
A jolly rancher.
This is where it gets complicated.
My cousin and I walked back into the restaurant, but we had to sneak underneath the windows so my family couldn't see us. We went up to the front desk and I tell them that it's my grandma's birthday and I go into detail describing what she looks like. After I finally finish, the lady says,
"Sorry, I don't know who she is and I can't help you."
She starts telling us about how we'll have to talk to the waiter, and she can't go get him because she doesn't know who it is, blah blah blah.
Thanks for your help.
Thankfully, our waiter comes by just then, and we tell him how it's my grandma's birthday. He says ok. Thank Goodness.
So to keep our cover, we had to crawl back underneath the windows and then walk back in front of them.
We go back to the table, only to hear that my grandma doesn't wanting them know it's her birthday.
About 10 minutes later, we hear all the employees cheering and they walk over with a huge sombrero and ice cream. They start singing happy birthday to her and my grandma turns beet red. The waiter then attempts to feed her a bite of ice cream and it slips off the spoon and falls onto her shirt!
What a good waiter.
And I think my uncle was drunk because every time the waiter said something, he responded with,
"tu mama".
That means "your mom" in English.
I'm guessing it wasn't one of her best birthdays.
Well that's my first blog post.
And I'll also be posting my poem of the day and my song of the day.
