Life comes together,
I break it apart
I brave the stormy weather
Survived with head and heart
The end was in sight
The far off rainbow came clear
It finally began to feel right
I no longer will shed any tear
But I would not stop the fight

Opening Credits: "So Glad"-John Reuben
Waking Up Scene: "High School"-Superchic[k]
Car Driving Scene: "Tim McGraw"-Taylor Swift
High School Flashback Scene: "Let it Be"-Superchic[k]
Nostalgic Scene: "When Christmas Comes to Town"-Polar Express Soundtrack
Bitter, Angry Scene: "Oceans from the Rain"-Seventh Day Slumber (so not fitting)
Break-up Scene: "Don't StopMe Now"-Queen
Regret Scene: "The One I'm Waiting For"-Relient K
Nightclub/Bar Scene: "Real"-Superchic[k]
Fight/Action Scene: "Joy"-Newsboys (oh that works so well)
Sad, Breakdown Scene: "Bellybutton"-Veggietales (it's funny because it some-what works)
Mellow Scene: "So Bright"-Superchic[k]
Dreaming About Someone Scene: "Find Yourself"-Brad Paisley
Dreaming Scene: "Lay Down my Pride"-Jeremy Camp

Contemplation Scene: "By Surprise"-Joy Williams
Chase Scene: "I'm Not the King"-Audio A
Happy Love Scene: "Livin on a Prayer"-Stellar Kart
Happy Friend Scene: "Stand in the Rain"-Superchic[k] (...if by "happy" you mean "sad")

Closing Credits: "Alright"-Superchic[k]

Didn't work so well this time. Oh well!

Time to get off, Dad's bringing home lunch, then we're going to change out his tires for the winter ones, and put up the Christmas lights.

I have pretty hair :)

I'm going to apply at Sears Essentials...as soon as I figure out their website

Tomorrow is a half-day!

I like typing in short phrases.

Monica convinced me my horoscope was right. We shall see.

My yearly reading list is still missing. Shoot.

Tomorrow's gonna be a breeze.

Can't wait for Rockford. :D

I've got a flip-flop issue, will explain later.

Warning: Jez is planning on having a sugar rush to up her novel.

Current word count is 11818, and so far I've had a box of nerds, a kit kat, and some gummy lifesavers. Oh, and I have a bottle of diet coke XD

Chanlaron, my new character, is going to be fun to write. But of coarse the best parts are sibling moments between Dylan and Tara. He LIVES to annoy her, as any new younger stepbrother should.

Also...
Nick got a guinea pig today, for free from Tigi (realtor my dad works with, her daughter was allergic). It's mainly white and he named it Guinea. Go figure.

"You sound like you have a frog in your throat...can I have it?"-My mum. I laughed at that, Suzy Turquoise Blue for the win!

The green is everything I wrote last night. Yeah, I wrote quite a lot in one day. I love word wars! Especially the themed ones that give me more plot and less filler! Because we all know I used to be a filler felon and am now in rehab.

Way to go everyone, keep on writing!

Gah, I simply cannot pull myself away from the computer tonight. I was about to leave and I see Kayla added more awesome songs than I thought.

Here's the new stuff I have:
Me and Jesus-Stellar Kart
Ocean Floor-Audio Adrenaline
Church Punks-Audio Adrenaline
Jesus Freak-DC Talk
Love You-Jack Ingram
Super Fly-OC Supertones
Over My Head-The Fray
Average Girl-Barlowgirl
Goodbye-Audio Adrenaline
Before He Cheats-Carrie Underwood
Bittersweet-Plumb
Candycoatedwaterdrops-Plumb
Three Days Later-FM Static
Socially Acceptable-DC Talk
Oceans from the Rain-Seventh Day Slumber (dude, you should hear the Hurricane Katrina version of this song, it's so sad)

I want a cd. Like now. I need money so I can buy cds and a paid LJ account, those are the top two things on my list to buy right now. I don't get paid until the 17th or so (pay period ends 15th, but checks take awhile to get to us out on the farm).

As always, let me know if you want an upload.

Have you seen these muses? [29 Sep 2006|10:41pm]

Have you seen these muses?
Last sighted two weeks ago, suspected to be sailing to India. If found, please report them to Jez. Do not try to obtain, one of the muses is armed and dangerous, the others have the ability to drive a person insane. Again, do not try to capture them, just report the sightings. Any tips that result in the safe return of all three muses will result in an award of your choosing.

Daily fuel gauge report, click to see what the current gas prices are nationwide.

Chicago area is so expensive. We're currently at $2.59. But I suppose we should be thankful it's not the $2.80 it was at a year ago, and certainly not the $3.16 it was only a month ago.

[26 Sep 2006|04:00pm]
See? I told you we were expensive

Uch, we are so high priced here. But like I said before, it's because there are millions of people in Chicago and therefore gas is in high demand. Pay no attention to the people outside of Cook County, they only add to it a little bit. It's all us up here, really. I suggest the metra or the El, maybe a bus.

I swear the best ideas come out of a shower head.

A friend graduated last year, and it made a little cut on me (metaphorically of coarse). This year I'll be the one graduating, and I may never see some of my friends again, that may break me. You ever notice when you have something, and it breaks, you can put it all back together, but there's always a little bit of difference? That it never seems the same even if all the pieces are there and in their right place? So, it will probably break me, yes. And I can be fixed, given time and a lot of superglue and duct tape, but I doubt I'll ever be the same. It can never be the same.

That's what my shower head told me today.

You know, besides the reoccuring thought of the moment where I walked into guidance today and saw "Richie" and thought to myself "that guy is absobloodlylutely gorgeous", I couldn't get that line out of my head all day

The Mayberry Gazette: "My wife and I do not even like our children" [07 Sep 2006|08:39pm]
Our hometown newspaper is hilarious sometimes. Mum and I call it the Mayberry Gazette



For those who simply must have context, on page A6 it continues the sentence to say "play in the front for fear of safety." But still, ending the page with "my wife and I do not even like our children" is pretty hilarious. Aren't the newspaper people proof-reading this stuff?

Yo! I need your opinion.

After I cut my hair Monday (which I shall do myself if anyone cared), I'm going to colour it again. My question to you is how should I dye it?
A. Red ends (last 6 inches) as usual
B. Orange ends
C. Orange stripes or highlights

I'll be using this red, just so you know. They didn't have a pic of the orange, sorry.

[ mood | annoyed ]

Know what really ticks me off? When Reneé goes out of her way to do everything that bugs me.

She turns on the tv when I'm trying to do something downstairs. She asks me to go drive places and pick up her friend because she doesn't want my dad to go. She steals my things (this time it was my fuzzy dice, that's all I know of so far). She takes more than one piece of Dominick's pizza at a time. She turns up the volume on tv waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too loud. She invites people over without asking anyone (then makes us go get them). And worst of all: she tries to be me. And fails horribly because she's nothing like me. She's over here trying to impress Ally by saying "oh, in high school I'm going to take computer art and creative writing" and other things that are totally mine that she doesn't express any interest in at all when Ally isn't around.

She's a liar, a hypocrite, and an annoying little sister.

but on the bright side I got Shine to work through my iTunes and I've heard many of my faves (like "sunny days" and "dead man")

Tigger, Spiders, and Job Shadows, oh my! [31 Aug 2006|07:28pm]
[ mood | weird ]

How cute is this? I want one XD

For our service day coming up, I'll be shadowing my dad on an inspection. It may not be the exact day, it'll probably be the weekend before hand, which is good because then I get to sleep in on that day XD

Pictures of Chloe and Jean-Claude, arachnaphobics do NOT click--big picsCollapse )
