Yay! I got nominated (okay.. fine by a friend) for the Liebester Award. <- (My friend who nominated me wrote a pretty concise and informative post about what it actually is.) So without further need of explaining it *wink, wink… I’m obviously pretty lazy today* here I go! Continue reading
So, going around wordpress, I noticed that a lot of people post regularly. And it’s not even long rants or anecdotes. Many people just post one of their favorite quotes or a song that they think is good. So, I’ll try that for a the month of February (my birthday month!!). I hope you enjoy these quotes and possibly a few music videos. :}
For the first time in forever, I’m writing a blog post that doesn’t relate to school. Am I talking “that problem” (as my chemistry teacher so kindly put it when someone “asks him to help with a problem.”) or my inability to meet “the one?” 0.0 Nope.
I made a blog post recently about my cats and connected it to Oedipus and Antigone. They’re still the awesome kitties from back then, except the big one leaves much more frequently. So for that reason and for safety concerns, we’ve decided that we should get them “fixed” and give them the necessary shots. The one big problem… They still don’t have names!
If you want the skip the rest and just give me probable names down in the comments. Go for it!
Dun Dun Dun Dahhhhhh! Continue reading
It’s often said that one man’s pain is another man’s amusement, no? Meh. I’d say maybe a majority of humor now-a-days is derived from poking fun at other people… But personally, I enjoy both innocent-making-fun-of-no-one humor and “HAH-in-your-face” or “I’m so glad that didn’t happen to me” humor. Just wondering, but aren’t puns typically the most harmless? … Don’t kill me, but I really enjoy this paragraph full of music puns:
“C, E-flat, and G go into a bar. The bartender says, “Sorry, but we don’t serve minors.” So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished, and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D comes in and heads for the bathroom, saying, “Excuse me; I’ll just be a second.” Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and says, “Get out! You’re the seventh minor I’ve found in this bar tonight.” E-flat comes back the next night in a three-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender says, “You’re looking sharp tonight. Come on in, this could be a major development.” Sure enough, E-flat soon takes off his suit and everything else, and is au natural. Eventually C sobers up and realizes in horror that he’s under a rest. C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.” Continue reading
I’ve been looking for inspiration and creativity. Firstly, there’s a lot of bright ideas out there. Two websites that you can see a lot of these ideas being funded at are: indiegogo.com and kickstarter.com. Both of these websites have really cool innovations you should check out.
Last words are sometimes funny. Don’t get me wrong, someone having to say their “last words” is always a tragic thing. But instead of grieving, let’s look at some sometimes hilarious, sometimes rather regrettable famous last words, emotion, etc. last words.
Why? Because while reading A Tale of Two Cities, it dawned on me that several characters had very memorable last words. And if Lucie Manette’s son and Sydney Carton were real and the statements in the novel were truly their last words, it’s extremely depressing. So, out of curiosity I’m going to list a few famous words, depressing ones, and interesting ones.
