I finally got fed up with feed burner today, so I'm in the middle of transferring all of my rss subscriptions into google reader.

Honestly, I'm surprised I lasted this long without subcumming to the mindless pull of another google Internet feature. Oh, and I've realized that google is the Wal-Mart of the Internet.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to transfer 38 feeds? It's so time consuming! I've only transferred 16, and it's taken me about 20 minutes! On the upside, I've realized that some people haven't updated their sites in forever because their sites are down, so I stopped reading them, or I added their new sites.

I'm tired.

I'm sorry I suddenly stopped commenting on peoples blogs. I'm really tired, and I have a lot of homework, so I just go through and read, then go on to the next blog. That's also why I haven't posted anything. (that, and the fact that I just haven't felt like it.)

Okay, I have nothing more to say, So I'll post when I can.

I have to admit, I'm a sucker for Corny jokes.

Why? They're not funny?

That's why I love them- They're so stupid, they're funny!

So, I now present a plethora of...


1. How many flutes does it take to change a light bulb?
One- She holds the light bulb and the whole world revolves around her.
I like that one!

2. How many clarinets does it take to change a light bulb?
One to change the light bulb and five flutes to pull the chair out from under her.
how rude!

3. How many saxophones does it take to change a light bulb?
Never mind the changes- we'll just fake it!
So. Freakin'. True!

4. How many trumpets does it take to change a light bulb?
One to change the bulb and four to talk about how they could of done it better.
See my comment about the saxophones. (Sorry dad, but it's true! I'm sorry, that was rather disrespectful. I would send myself to my room with no supper, but I just ate so I cant do that...)

5. How many french horns does it take to change a light bulb?
Just one- but he's got to spend two hours checking the light bulb for alignments and leaks.
I don't know any french horn players, so I have no commentary.

6. How many trombones does it take to change a light bulb?
Trombones don't change light bulbs, they just walk around in the dark and bang their shins!
The trombone player I know would be more like the trumpets...

7. How many euphoniums does it take to change a light bulb?
One to change the light bulb and one to say "isn't that a little high for you?
what's a eupnonium?

8. How many tubas does it take to change a light bulb?
One... four... five... one... four... five... one...
I don't get it...

9. How many percussionists does it take to change a light bulb?
Are you kidding? They haven't seen a light bulb in years!
Haha, that one was actually kind of funny!

10. How many sopranos does it take to change a light bulb?
Sopranos don't need light bulbs- they give off a glow.
... it might be a glow, but it's a glow that kills your eardrums. I'm sorry, that was mean. My ears don't die when I hear sopranos.

11. How many altos does it take to change a light bulb?
Altos can't change light bulbs- they can't reach that high.

... is that something against short people? (I sing alto, and I'm short. It is kind of funny, though.)

12, How many tenors does it take to change a light bulb?
What's change?
I don't get it.
13. How many basses does it take to change a light bulb?
They won't change the light bulb, they'll just sit it the dark and wait for a tenor to do it for them.
Still don't get it. The tenors at my school will be more like the trumpets.

14. How many conductors does it take to change a light bulb?
Who cares? No one's even watching the conductor anyway!
I have to agree with this one!

Yea, that's about it. I hope you enjoyed!

National Novel Writing Month. AKA: The night of endless All- Nighters.

Basically, members of NaNoWriMo (or Wrimos) write 50K word novel during November, but some are setting personal goals of 100k. Since this is my first time, I'm just going to do 50k. Is anyone else doing it? I think it sounds fun!

Under the Stars...

... Homecoming '08.

So... last night was my schools homecoming! Compared to last year, it was a tad disappointing. Last years theme was Old Hollywood (or something like that...) and was held at a fancy banquet hall at one of the nicest country clubs in my town, and catered. This years theme was "Night Under the Stars" and was held in the school gym, with deserts. (There was a chocolate fountain, though. It was heaven in a silver dish!) SO. PICTURES.

(I'm the one in the purple.)

I don't care, though. It wasn't that bad. OMG LILY'S (The girl next to me in the first picture) DATE (The only guy in the second picture) WAS SOOOO POLITE! HE KNOWS HOW TO TREAT A LADY! Seriously! At dinner he offered to serve my salad, and all night, whenever we went any were, he always said "Ladies first!" (He's pretty good looking, too!) (Dad, you didn't read that...)

And now I sleep.

Ahhh- mahzing.

James Houston re- created "Nude" by Radiohead using old technology. (Sorry if I made anyone feel old...) All of the audio is actually from the machines that were filmed- it's amazing, and a wonderful piece of art. Even if you're not an artist, it's still amazing, and you should still watch it!

The Life of A High School Student.

Wakes up at a ridiculously early hour, just so they can feel like they got some extra sleep, because it takes at least half an hour to wake up. Proceeds to get dressed, brush teeth, do hair, while simultaneously boiling water for an instant oatmeal breakfast, otherwise breakfast will be a rice crispy treat eaten at the bus stop. Applies makeup after doing hair on a good day. Normally makeup is done outside while waiting for bus and/or in the girls restroom at school before homeroom.

Proceeds to be tortured for the next four hours in school, generally in freezing classrooms while dead tired.

Lunch- the one bright spot in a day of darkness and dis pare...

Band, then spends the next 2 classes thinking "three more classes... two more classes... last class"

Rides bus home, blasting music and wistfully thinking of that glorious day she will get her license....

Gets home, picks up mail, gets on laptop and checks email and other sites, does chores, eats dinner, than does her homework. Goes to bed at 11pm thinking "I need to get to sleep earlier," and the whole process starts again.

Gosh, I can't wait until I graduate! School's going so slow this year.
