Blair- Laughing

Swan-diving off of the deep end of my tragic cigarette

I've spent this last week at either one of two extremes: chagrined or amused.

Collapse )
And there's my soul-searching for the day.

In other news, I've been writing some interesting things lately. It feels good to be writing again period, but I'm especially proud of this recent stuff.

Also, I win at life, but not by much with regards to my summer classes. I don't think I got an A on my exam, but I think I passed it... which is awesome considering I studied for about 2 hours with only the text to guide me.

So, yet again I took quizzes that katja had on her journal. All of the results are surprisingly accurate, for once, especially the temperament and attention span ones. Also they're eerily related to the beginning of this post...
Heh, in any case, I heartily recommend them.

Teehee- I have cholera. But actually this is really accurate. If you know me, you know the first two sections are ridiculously true: especially "easily excited" and "instantly passionate" LOL The last part I like to think is untrue... but not completely.

You Have a Choleric Temperament

You are a person of great enthusiasm - easily excited by many things.

Unsatisfied by the ordinary, you are reaching for an epic, extraordinary life.

You want the best. The best life. The best love. The best reputation.

You posses a sharp and keen intellect. Your mind is your primary weapon.

Strong willed, nothing can keep you down. Your energy can break down any wall.

You're an instantly passionate person - and this passion gives you an intoxicating power over others.

At your worst, you are a narcissist. Full of yourself and even proud of your faults.

Stubborn and opinionated, you know what you think is right. End of discussion.

A bit of a misanthrope, you often see others as weak, ignorant, and inferior.

HA, I don't think this comes as a surprise to anyone...

Your Attention Span is Short

What attention span? It's difficult for anything to keep your interest.

You are so easily distracted, it's a wonder you could finish this quiz!

You find focusing a challenge. Your mind tends to wander to the strangest places.

While it may be hard for you to complete tasks, you're very creative.

You are easily inspired, and you are often thinking of something interesting.

The world would be a boring place without people like you.

I would like to know who these salsa personalities are...

You Are Barbeque Sauce

You are a social person. You enjoy cooking for other people.

You are both skillful and competitive. You enjoy mastering hard tasks.

You appreciate complexity more than simplicity.

Your taste in food tends to lean toward interesting flavors.

You appreciate exotic spice combinations. You tend to like cutting edge, fusion cuisine.

You get along with all personalities from a distance. Except salsa personalities, who always seem to annoy you.



These are all quizzes that Katja posted. She was online for like 2minutes today! WOOO.

Road Trip

The Road Trip of Your Life

You see life as a journey to be shared with others. Kinship and sharing are very important to you.

Your life is quite hectic. You try to slow down when you can, but it's not easy!

You're willing to take a few risks in life. You may not take the road no one travels, but you're happy to take the road less traveled.

You are able to find a fairly healthy balance between work and play. You work when you need to, but you never let yourself burn out.

In another life, you could have been a great novelist. You have a knack for describing things in an interesting way.


What Your These Fireworks Say About You

You are jubilant and easily excited.

While you aren't very intense or passionate, your happiness is abundant.

You can always find cause to celebrate, laugh, or even just smile to yourself.

You find that life is full of things to be happy about!

I like forks.

You Are a Fork

You are truthful, direct, and straight forward.

People find your honesty to be a bit piercing at times.

You are driven and wildly ambitious.

You know what you want, and you take the most direct path to getting it.

Not so much the middle part, as I am pretty social

You Are a Crocodile

You are incredibly wise and knowledgeable.

In fact, your wisdom is so deep that it sometimes consumes you.

People are intrigued by you, but you find few people intriguing.

You are not a very social creature.

You are cunning. You enjoy deceiving people a little.

You are able to find balance in your life, and you can survive anything.

Dance dance in my pants


Name 9 people you can think of right off the top of your head. Don't read the questions underneath until you write the names of all 9 people. This is a lot funnier if you actually randomly list
the names first.. No cheating!!!

1. Kibbs
2. Gretchypoo
3. Linc
4. Jamie
5. Kate
6. Amanda
7. Ash
8. Crystal
9. Daree


- How did you meet 3?
When he slapped me with a wet(w/ water) tampon in high school and I retaliated in such a way that he remembered not to do it again.

- What would you do if you had never met 1?
I honestly can't even... wow. I have no clue. Probably be a completely different person.

- What would you do if number 2 and 6 were going out?
Well I'd probably never come out of the laughter induced coma.

- How do you know number 8?
We're twins separated at birth who only found each other at age 15 while throwing inanimate objects in the air...

- What do you think of number 7?
That she's one of the most honest and refreshing people I've ever met, just a hilarious grrrl.

-What would you do if 5 confessed they love you?
LOL! We lived in the same room for 2 years... how could she not want me ;)

- A fact or two about 9?
Well, I associate her with dolphins, because not only does she love them, but whenever I picture her mind, or her essence I suppose, it's always in the form of a dolphin. Strong and shiny and graceful, with a sort of playful independence that's infectious.

- Who is 1 going out with?
OMG WHO ISN'T SHE WITH? p.i.m.p.t.r.e.s.s.  (look ma, I can vary my font)

- What's 4 do for a living?
I do believe she trains to become Lois Lane, and telemarkets, and builds engines, and writes satirical pieces. She's what we call a "jack-of-all-trades."

- Would you ever live with 8?
Sure I would. She could make me chili and I'd keep her neat :)

- Where does 7 live?
Haha, well her family's home is in the OC, her official current residence is in Hillenbrand Hall, but she actually has an apartment in Lafayette.

- What do you like about number 1?
That she's adorable and kinda dense in a way that's purely Kibbs. She's kind and sociable and caring and she makes mistakes but tries to fix 'em. Plus, I mean we've been friends since we were 7.

- Do you miss number 2?
Hahaha, yes she's at work right now... I haven't seen her in 3 whole hours!

- What is your opinion of number 6?
That she's more amazing every time I talk to her. I want to put her in a book so everyone can know her.

- What do you think about number 5?
I think she's smart and driven and well balanced. And that Australia's lucky to have her for awhile, hopefully there's a mutual learning taking place :) Miss ya Kate!!

- Would you ever go out with number 7?
OH hell yes! Hahaha we already hit the Cactus every Thurs night, we might as well get a discount on the cover lol!!

- What would you do if 3 and 8 were going out?
I would scratch my head in confusion. A lot. In fact, I think I'd end up with an open wound. That is just way too much curly hair, their union would cause a deep and irreversible rip in the time-space continuum.

- Who does 2 like?
No one currently

- Would you ever go to the movies with number 9?
Are you kidding me? Not only would I go to the movies with her, but we still have a standing Harry Potter Date that we've honored for each addition to the franchise for... I dunno, a lot of years now. (6ish? When'd the first Potter Film come out?)

- Is number 4 hott?
SCORCHING!     (hahha note the extra "t" in hot in the question... that must mean reeeally sexy. Like so sexy one T can't even begin to describe...)

- How many of them did you meet on myspace?
None, these are all real life people. With pants and everything!

haha, Oh Abe, you so crazy.

DONE FUCKING DONE! OMG it took me an entire month rife with distraction, but I'M DONE! I feel like a Taco Bell commercial. [I'M FULL!!] Yay off to Erin and then update time :D

So, list of things to do today:
Okay I'm not even going to make a list since I won't do it all. But, it includes going to Schleman and working an hour earlier than I'm scheduled to come in. NOT happy about this. Whatever. More monies for Kateh!

Why don't I own this movie? No matter how many times I watch, it remains my all-time favorite [Lies, Katie, ALL LIES. It's tied w/ the Princess Bride, 101 Dalmations, and Seven] Anyway, my point is I've had a what? 11 year love affair w/ this movie and have never owned it. Huh. That is a lot of monies in rental fees. Probably I should just invest.

A.J.: What's with you? Yesterday you were normal and today you're like the Chinese guy from the Karate Kid. What's with you today?
Lucas: What's with today, today?

"Yes, I would still love you if you had only one foot."

Wow, haven't updated for a little while. I don't know why. I check my friends page everyday, but apparently don't want to contribute. Huh. Entertain me, pleebs. Dance! DANCE! (lol dance dance in my pants...)

"Rosalee: They also said that in first class you may personally view the film of your choice.
Cathy: All right. I would like to touch intimately the person who thought of that."

Anywhoots... Livejournal has now given me 15 userpics. Really, I don't think this was a good decision on their part. Sure, just keep feeding the addiction, lj.  ENABLER! I even made one 'cause I'm cool. Yeah, it's a unicorn. Whatcha gonna do about it? They exist- they totally do.  Here it is:

What's that? What time is it?! Why, it's random passive-aggressive ranting in which I use the word "I" about 3 trillion times, use the same sentence structure over and over, and switch back and forth between musing in general and addressing the reader time!!
Collapse )

Guh, I'm so out of it. Worrying and stuff. I do that. I should stop. 

I have to get some work done. This chapter is just NOT FINISHING. I need to get this application filled out. It's just NOT FINISHING. 

Well, I'm gonna hop into da shower and get ready for the roomie's memorial service for her Grandpa :( sad face. He was a nice guy.

Here's some dumb stuff to amuse you while I'm gone!! 

So heres the rules: go to your iTunes or Window Media, or whatever and fill out the first band that's in each letter, and don't be all like "mmm, I dont want people knowing I listen to them so I'll pick the coolest one".

A - The Andrews Sisters
B - Bad Company
C - Chris Botti
D - Dean Gray
E - Eagles
F - Family Guy
G - Geoffe Moore and the Distance
H - Hollenbeck
J - Jimmy Page and Robert Plant

Hahahahhaa! I love it! Good quiz, good quiz.
I really don't think I have much to say right now. But OMG read this. I don't know why but when I read it it was the funniest thing ever. It's just an essay about how the writer wants to see Snakes on a Plane. If I were male I like to think I'd write like this. I don't really know why, but I would. Its from the Johns Hopkins News-Letter. Enjoy:
