My name is SPAM!

Whatever, it's Friday. I can "cut loose."

Terrible, Delightful Linkage ...emphasis on "terrible."
- I need to call my father. His role model has a drug addiction. HEEEEE! Unfortunately, he'd probably find a way to justify it. Ugh.
- Plagiarism contest!
- Get your laudanum out, ladies. Annie Ignorant has advice on How to be a Good Christian Wife. This would make me sick if it weren't for the comments.

Also, since it's just before finals week:
FEEL-GOOD MEME!
Comment with your username and people will tell you something they love about you, whether it's your sense of humor or your smile. Whatever it is, just say it!


Speaking of memes, I've been tagged by sbryan to share six random things about myself with you:

1. I have a green umbrella. For very specific purposes, I have a green umbrella. I have a problem with losing things. In my hometown, everyone and their dog had black umbrellas that were practically identical, and mine always either got taken accidentally or left behind. I think I lost a total of seven. So I got a green one because no one in the history of ever has had a green umbrella. It sticks out, no one can walk away with it without me noticing, and I doubt I'll forget it. 'Cause it's green.

2. I really like arting. I don't do it nearly enough, but I love drawing. Especially with an ink well and a brush. I'd like to think that my art is good. Even if it isn't, I like it anyway. I think I'm going to frame some of it. I'm a relentless perfectionist though, so arting takes forever. Damn, do I love it though.

3. I love Chile Relleno. It's goddamn delicious. It looks gross, it sounds gross, but it rules. Fuck, I'm really hungry now. THANKS, SEAN.

4. When I'm writing or developing characters for a story, sometimes I will whisper dialogue to myself and then whisper back theirs in a different tone of voice to make sure it sounds natural. I'm sure I look completely starkers, and I often feel like a crazy person. I just bounce their personalities off of mine, and see what happens. For some reason hearing it helps me. Then again, I'm a big fan of reading my writing aloud just to make sure it flows. I'll never do it when someone else is around though, unless I'm - y'know, reading them a story specifically to read to them.

5. I love playing frisbee. I don't know why, but it's seriously one of my favorite things to do on a sunny day. Running around in grass barefoot and flinging a flying disc around fills me with incomprehensible joy. It's also the only hand-eye sport I really consider myself to be good at. I'm fair at badminton, and I'm moderate at volleyball, but when it comes to basketball, baseball, etc... I'm hopeless. Frisbee? I'm a pro! It's my inner labrador.

6. When I was a little girl, I used to collect big cat figurines. Whenever we went to the zoo or to a place that had one of those uber chintzy gift shops with the rubber siberian tigers and things, I always begged until I got one. I think my Mom has them all collected somewhere, but I thought they were the most beautiful animals when I was younger. I still think they're stunning, but they were so graceful and deadly. It still worries me that I am attracted to such things. Oh well. It hasn't killed me yet.

And I tag everyone. Especially all of my newer friends! I want to get to know you guys through random snippets!

Also, silfactor found another little egg-monster thang? Except it's... ghetto?

Sorry dude, I had to tease. Okay. Hungry. Shelby out.

Re: the good Christian wife blog entry - personally, I got the feeling the author was being sarcastic. Especially with lines like "Only whores use frozen."

Although, if she's not, then, just... no words.

See, I did too. But evidently a lot of her blog entries are like that, and if you read the comments she totally defends it to the death. It's a little horrifying. Plus, she links Fox News. That can't be a good sign.

You should see me when I read my plays to myself. Heh.

PS Your dad might be the last person in the world to not know Limbaugh has a drug addiction.

Do you ever read your prose to yourself in an excited voice like a story teller? I do.

To myself? No. To Faith? All the time.

Although, I guess it depends on if it's my own prose, because then the answer would be yes. Hmmm.

What's even better about that Rush Limbaugh story is that he had a press release leaked to the press that said he hadn't been arrested...despite the fact that it shows his mugshot and arrest information on the webpage of the officer that arrested him.

(In another life I was a waitress for a Mexican restaurant.)
I always thought that Chile Relleno looked like deep-fried rat. You know, they hold the tail 'n dip it in the oil. But, I must agree, it is delicious.

Re: (In another life I was a waitress for a Mexican restaurant.)
Wow. 'Can't say I've ever thought of it like that... but I looove it. I was really skeptical at first, because I thought it'd melt my mouth off, but thankfully it did not.

Anyway, hello. I don't believe we've met? I'm Shelby. =]

I'm sorry, this comment must have come completely out of the blue. ;) I just stumbled across your page by chance and instantly fell in love with your writing. You effortlessly make things so interesting and amusing! I'm Jenni, just a nondescript lover of literature.

No need to apologize, I don't mind. I love meeting new people! Shall we friend one another?

Hey hey hey it's six random things time!

1) Movie I've seen the most: Back to the Future. No exaggeration, I think I've seen it 100 times.

2) I have two guitars, both Fenders. One is a pearly blue electric named Ariana Rose and the black acoustic is named the Black Hole because it likes to eat picks.

3) I once wrote a fan letter to Johnathan Taylor Thomas that included a full episode script for Home Improvement that I wrote.

4) The first time I drove on the freeway (or rather, a two-lane highway with no stoplights or stop signs) I almost ran over a desert tortoise.

5) I was Violet from the Incredibles for last Halloween.

6) I re-read all my old real-life diary entries pertaining to whatever date it is, going back to 2002 just to remember what was going on in my life on this exact day so many years ago. And to get emo over x-boyfriends, haha.

OMG, JTT! What the hell happened to him? Did he fall off the face of the planet?

Also, I go on binge re-reads of my diaries too just to remind myself how far I've come. I always get really irritated with myself when I find passages or, god forbid, pages about ex-boyfriends and how much I loved them and how it was so meant to be and yet I was soooo insecure. *facepalm*

Maybe I should've added the fact that I refuse to admit to myself that I'm actually a girl to my list.
