If you're ever down in Facebook, look me up.

The world as we know it may soon be over. My mom has discovered facebook. I think she likes it.

I have also discovered facebook. I think it's boring because I have no friends. She got friends up the wazoo instantly. What's going on here? I'm supposed to be the one who's all internet savvy. Me! Sniffle.

And while I'm on the streak of complaining (not really, but we'll say I am), it is three days from Christmas, and I have not seen a single cookie. I have seen a few cookie bars and some shortbread before my mom so generously took them to work, but so far it has been the winter without cookies, and that's just not how it's supposed to be.

No cocoa, either! We have Nesquik, which Hunter swears tastes like cocoa when heated (someone must've atom bombed his taste buds), but really tastes like chalk no matter what you do to it.

It's three days from Christmas, people! There is no cocoa, there are no cookies, very few candy canes, and I have participated in Christmas shopping only once. This year is strange...

It's the first day of Christmas break and I'm bored out of my mind. There's nothing to do around here (why do you think I usually play World of Warcraft all day?), and since I know my mom will suggest chores, I'll rephrase that. Nothing entertaining to do around here. Sitting around waiting for something to happen still trumps laundry, thank you.

I've read all my books at least three times each (and some of Hunter's twice), I've got writer's block so I can't try writing my 50-billionth one, I have artist's block too so drawing is useless, there's nothing on the TV except food network Christmas specials I watched two weeks ago and a Jeff Dunham show I already watched today, can't go anywhere with my friends because I have no way to get anywhere with my friends, and my friends on WoW are all enjoying the new content that comes with the expansion I don't have yet. Safe to say, there really is nothing (entertaining) to do except make fantastic run on sentences.

It's been about half a day and I'm already stir crazy. Can't it be Christmas already so I can at least enjoy the novelty of whatever I'm getting?! I need to go do things. Things does not include chores. There has to be something around here.

Dungeons and Obsessions

While enjoying my glorious lunch of wheat Chex doused with sugar (something has to be contradicting there) and browsing the internet, it occurred to me that I have become very interested in Dungeons and Dragons. It also occurred to me that I have never played, watched, or done anything more than read about it.

But the reading I've done makes it somehow insanely appealing. I have daydreams about rolling dice, writing up character sheets, getting P-O'd at the GM, and laughing as an idiot comrade makes some stupid move that gets the whole group squished. I must play it. This is the goal of my senior year, and if I wasn't a geek before, I probably am now.

The interest is actually so great that I haven't played World of Warcraft in about a week and a half. I know. It's getting that bad. I wants to play!

Also, the dice are pretty.

Upon re-reading my last post, I have remembered something possibly more interesting. Last year, I was very much into yoga. For whatever reason, I stopped going to classes over the summer, and last week I picked them back up. Now, for those of you who have ever skipped a yoga class, I'm sure you know how many things you forget how to do.

Now imagine skipping months of classes.

I swear, it didn't hurt this much when I started the class the first time. I know it's just the fact that I'm horribly out of shape and have no muscle, and that it'll go away soon, but the fact is that when I walked into the class last week, I knew absolutely nothing. Couldn't balance, couldn't stretch. I had issues doing dog pose. That's pretty lame. Meanwhile, the person next to me was doing headstands for fun.

I also went this week (I am never forgetting another class for as long as I live, this I swear upon many baked goods), and I swear I did something bad to my shoulder (still hurts). I did, however, redeem my skills in bending by flaunting the fact that I can do a full wheel pose and the rest of them can't. Neener, neener, neener. So for another week, I will remember this and feel smug. At least until next Tuesday and Ms. Balancing Skills does her headstand again. *grumble*

P.S. Tylenol is my new best friend.

When the fat lady sings, it had better be over.

It has come to my attention that I haven't posted in a while. We can blame this on my massive amounts of French homework, my French teacher (for giving the homework), and the fact that my life hasn't been interesting lately. I apologize to you, my readers, who probably number less than five.

So I dragged myself out of bed this morning at the cheery hour of 5:30, wrestled with whatever clothes smelled clean until I found the armholes, and headed out to the bus stop expecting the normal boring trip to school. It sure seemed normal at first, but I guess I should have known when I saw out of the corner of my eye that the girl in the second seat had a gigantic balloon with a picture of a singing Viking woman and "It's not over until the fat lady sings," in gaudy lettering printed on it. What a fat Viking woman has to do with the rest of this, I have no clue.
A few minutes down the road, we go around a turn, and all of a sudden, I hear,


It sounded like a bad attempt to imitate auntie Mary's opera singing. A very bad attempt. And as if the once wasn't bad enough, the balloon continued to sing this EVERY FLIPPING TIME THE BUS MADE A SUDDEN MOVEMENT.  I think by the third time it went off, everyone pretty much wanted to shred the thing. The owner of the balloon wanted to shred the thing.

I'm not quite sure what happened to the balloon (although I imagine it was somewhat violent and involved stabbing), but I didn't see it on the bus ride home. And that is the most interesting point in my week so far.

Oh yes, I'm also creating a tabletop RPG without having ever played one before. My friends seem to be interested. We'll see how that works out.
