"Mama don't take my Kodachrome away"

Two self-portraits. What can I say? I've had a pretty boring Saturday. And yes, I've edited the lighting and such on both. Tell me what you think, perhaps? That would be most delightful.

Oh, and my title is the lyric from a fantastic Paul Simon song aptly named, "Kodachrome".

Do you see their faces when you fall asleep at night?

Now they're all blood stained memories.

[Yep, Zack told me to write it. If you're a Parkway Drive fan, I hope you enjoyed that.]

You know you've reached some part of nonwhere land when it's thrilling to look up the name of this one actor and spending a good ten minutes seeing what else they've been in. The actor, in case you have a burning desire to know, is Gerald Butler. As part of English we are watching the movie version of Timeline, and he plays one of the main characters. I recognized the Scottish accent almost instantanously yesterday and it posed for quite the intrique until I got home and searched the movie with IMDB.com. Well, besides being in P.S. I Love You, he was in this British made film, Dear Frankie. I remember bawling my eyes out for that one. Such an amazing story. Touching, really. Anyways, it made me smile to figure out the connections. Ah, like so: :]

Or when you ask how your school's librarian manages to laminate the books without having to rip the pages out. Hah. Annie and I amused ourselves this morning with that mind-boggler. I suggested we go ask, and the librarian kindly explained it to us. We thanked her, and as we started to leave she remarked, "you're the first to ask." Oh goodness. Annie especially felt truly special after that, as if knowing how it was done wasn't enough. XD

Yeah, so. I'm quite tired. I would definitely head off to dreamland in less than half an hour if The Mentalist wasn't coming on the tele at 9:00. Damn me and my need to admire foreign, cute males! Erg, blasted teenage hormones. You are going to make an insomniac out of me!

Regardless, I have this silly and in my personal opinion utterly pointless grocery list to fill out with prices of the foods I want to eat when I'm 29. Okay, how unrealistic is that? What if I decide I want to go vegetarian when I'm 20. How will I know? *sigh* Life is not fair nor always logical, therefore neither are high school assignments? Odd it it all worked out that way, don't yah think?

Blah. I'm seriously fretting my math test. If I got anything lower than a B, I might just shoot myself in the foot. [Which, by the way, my pinky toe still hurts. A tell-tale sign it is definitely broken? Hey, don't ask me. Not the doctor , er, podiatrist, here.] This is ridiculous though, I am getting help from my brother, doing all my homework, taking extensive notes, asking questions yet I manage a C. I've honestly had a mental breakdown over this. My mom consoled me into thinking it isn't a disaster, and I suppose in a sane mind I'd concede that, too.

Oh crudmuffins. I just remembered some other homework I need to finish. No fun.

I'll catch you chillens on the flip side. ^.^b

Ahahaaha. Zack just sent me this site over AIM. It's pretty funny. Especially check out the "Teen Girl Squad" under "Toons".

Eight o'clock smoothies.

My mom and I were feeling putrid Friday night and my dad and brother were sleeping, so we seized the chance to go out.

Ha, and got smoothies. So if you thought pumpkin spice soymilk was good...try the smoothie version--minus the soymilk.
^o^

The past week has been slightly stressful. Plenty of tests and school related things going on. Right now I have a headache just thinking about having to study for an important History significance test. I'm also frustrated I didn't do as well on this Timeline test we had in English. I mean, I read the book, but I seriously am one of the worst test takers imaginable.

One of the most awesome pieces of news, though? We got 1st at Academic team!! Which is good, because it put us closer to qualifying for district. Woot, woot! Only sad part is I might not play much since I'm not the best player. Er, the most knowledgeable.

Anyway, hopefully this week will be wonderfully fantastic. Key word: hopefully.

I haven't done much this lazy Sunday other than talk to people. Yesterday on the other hand was fun for two reasons. Uno. I went and got my hair dyed and cut. I love it. Scary part of that story is this elderly lady ran her car through the empty space next door in the building. No joke. Apparently she mistook the gas pedal for the brake and went flying through. Everyone had heard a loud BANG! and had gone running to the scene. Thankfully as I said it was an empty space, the lady wasn't hurt and neither was her car. However, she could've easily had the wheel turned slightly and blasted through the beauty salon, probably severly injuring my mom sitting right there by the door when it happened. I would've been completely HORRIFIED. Geez la wheez.

Dos. I got to see NIkki and Dani for the first time in forever. I liked the play we saw being put on by their high school, too, called, Wait Until Dark It was supposed to be a "thriller" but I wasn't scared. At least all that much. The actors all did a great job making it quite believable and the set was amazing. Haha, Nikki. "The bricks! Look at the bricks! OWN THE BRICKS. It took me and two of my other friends two months to make them. TWO MONTHS." She's so crazy. But that's why she's my best friend. XD

Now I think I'm going to head outside and enjoy the cold weather. It feels so fresh. :]

*Edit: I can't spell, so I corrected a few mistakes. I doubt I caught 'em all.

Precarious.

I just realized I still have to make up what I've eaten this past week for this nutrition project in biology. Magnificent. >.>

You know what stinks? Not being able to see your best friend even though their sister is your brother's girlfriend. Yes, I'm annoyed that my brother got to hang out with his girlfriend [that can drive] today and it was somehow completely impossible for me to see Nikki. Granted Nikki relays to me now that she has this huge essay to write on the book Animal Farm due Monday, but still. I was looking forward to doing something fun, exciting. Fresh. Okay, I'll admit it: If nothing else, I wanted to get out my house. :/ Not gonna happen.

Annie and Zack had their one-year anniversary together yesterday. They went to go see a Coldplay concert in Orlando. As far as I know, the two had fun, which is how it should be. :)

What other news...oh! I think I broke my left foot's smallest/pinky toe. That or jammed it super badly. Either way, it hurts like hell and I need to remind myself to take another Advil to relieve the pain. Yes, it's hard to walk. I think I should chop it off. Then if it messes with my balance, chop my leg off and get a prosthetic one. That's one way to ensure I'll never have this problem again, right?

Ugh. I can't wait to be done with this history project. Don't get me wrong, I love my group mates [Swanny and Puja] to death, but it just keeps looming over my head. Eh, it's not justified for me to complain--I'm sure they're ready to be done with it, too. The paper, the biggest component is due Monday. We have a few, minor changes to make to it at the moment. Not hard, I'm just lazy as all get out.

Well, I think that's all going on in my life.

Good night and good luck.
