PPG style Stella

I watched Angel's Friends again just to get a feel for it. I persuaded my mom into watching it with me. She is no expert on the Winx Club or anything like that. I can't even remember if she has seen a whole Winx Club episode. She did agree with me that the shows are very similar.

Today is the last day of the month. August already? :/ That usually isn't a good month for me.

Here is some Winx Club fanart I drew of Stella PPG style. I think it looks kind of silly. I think I'll draw other characters in PPG style like Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew and Kimberly from Power Rangers.

Happy Birthday Doremi!

I know I'm celebrating the birthday of a fictional character. Here is a steak for you on your birthday. Since I know you want one so badly.

Trivial Pursuit

What is wrong with wanting to know trivial things? I pride myself on knowing things like that. I'm no history buff, war buff, sports buff, mathematician, or scientist. I get so bored in those classes. Especially math and science. When will I really apply that stuff to real life?

I think it's important to know things about pop culture. Who knows when it might come in handy? I don't want to be really book smart because I feel people think that is intimating. Who wants to talk to somebody smarter than you? Through the years I have learned this the hard way.

Besides thinking the trivial is valued I started writing my bucket list on paper. I'm going to post it on the wall no matter how silly. I started thinking about what I really want to do. Some people want to learn how to make certain dishes. I gave that up a long time ago. I know I'm a bad cook. Especially since the time I tried to cook omelets for my family, and my dad got mad at me because I wasn't cooking them fast enough. I have not cooked a meal for him since, and that was 10 years ago.

Graduation “Gown”

I decided to post a lazy memoir today.

When I was in eighth grade the school graduation we did not wear gowns. There were a lot of strange rules for the girls’ outfits. There was a no bare shoulder/spaghetti strap rule. I was hard finding a dress. My dress budget was $20! Even for 1998 that was pretty meager. I wasn’t even allowed to upgrade to a $25 dress. I wanted something Indian style since that was everywhere that year, and because the look was inspired by Gwen Stefani.

I had to get a cover up and some new shoes. There were no “cheap” shoes that went with my outfit, so I ended up getting these white platforms. I could barely walk in them, but I had to get them since they were the only shoes in the store that went with the dress. There wasn’t much I had to accessorize with. I didn’t wear any jewelry the only thing I used to accessorize with was some purple glitter hair mascara. It matched the color of my dress.

Originally I wanted 2 dresses one for the graduation, and one for the dinner dance. My parents would have nothing of it and would only buy one dress. That would have been embarrassing to wear the same dress to both events. Especially since the dinner dance was held before the graduation. I decided since I didn’t have a different dress to wear I would not go. I was already pissed off about the dress I already had. I did not go. I stayed home and watched my video of “Live in the Tragic Kingdom”. A lot of the girls who were in the same predicament were made fun of.

My friend was lucky she got a formal dress. A lot of girls did. At the graduation I felt under dressed. The dress was too casual, and I did not wear it with nylons because that’s the way I saw some similar dresses worn in a magazine. I had open toed shoes and open toed shoes with nylons just looks tacky.

The funny thing is that some girl I didn’t like ended up getting the dress I wanted. I was sort of glad I didn’t get that dress. I had such a hard time walking in the shoes that when I was marching, and going on stage I had my arms out for balance.

It was funny when this other girl I didn’t like told me she got her dress. She hardly ever talked to me aside from spewing insults. She was so tomboyish I had a hard time imagining her in a dress. I remember seeing her in the dress and thinking, “She looks like a girl.” She was wearing these really casual sandals with her nice (not formal) dress and nylons. It looked so tacky. I liked making fun of her because she would always make fun of my clothes and shoes. I felt it was justified. Her sandals looked like this.

The ceremony itself gets it’s own story. There is just too much to cram in there.

miscellaneous blog #34

I want to make a correction to one of my blogs I erroneously wrote that it came out the year I was born. I read that it came out in 1984, but it really came out in 1986. I don't want people to think I'm lying about my age.

I really hope I don't get annoying emails soon to sign up for classes I can't take. I haven't received any yet thankfully.

There were some other things I was going to address, but the topics totally slipped my mind.

Beyond Rusty

Yesterday I thought I would go out and try to practice driving again. I thought I was rusty. It was beyond that! I forgot like everything! At least I wasn't riding the curb. I just couldn't get adjusted to the car. I hadn't practiced driving in it. My dad got rid of the old car I use to practice in. I almost double footed it. This is going to be harder than I thought. In case anybody is curious I didn't practice driving in that junky Buick.

Angel's Friends

I don't know much about this show. I can't find a lot of info about it in English on the web. I was very curious to see this show since I heard it was like the Winx Club. The shows do have a lot in common. They are both Italian productions, the English dub I saw has some of the 4Kids voice actors, the characters have a similar look to them. Raf has Bloom's voice and Cabiria has Musa's voice. Liza Ortiz's voice is very identifiable. I think I might have heard Veronica Taylor and Dan Green in there too. I'm not sure who dubbed this. I can't find any info on the company or the voice actors.

I've only seen 1 episode, and read what little I can find about this show on the web. I sort of understand the plot. It's about angels and devils who help people out. When the angel and the devil get into an argument they challenge each other to something like horse riding. The characters can also disguise themselves like Sailor Moon does with the Luna Pen. They also have a henshin/transformation when they change into their outfits. The angels wear outfits that are sparkly. There are 2 schools an angel and devil school. Which reminded me of the 3 schools in the Winx Club (I'm using the 4Kids names) Alfea, Cloud Tower, and Red Fountain. I'm not including Beta since it was only mentioned and never shown on the series. Or at least the episodes I saw.

Here is the Italian language wikipedia entry for the show. Here is an English page about the show.

There is a problem with the show. It wasn't dubbed very well. I noticed the characters' mouths still moving when they are not speaking. It airs too early where I live. That is more of an affiliate problem.

Pretzel M&Ms

I like pretzels Mr. Salty use to be one of my favorite brands. I also like those pretzels that are filled with peanut butter. I’m not going to write about pretzels too much.

I like pretzels and chocolate. The pretzel segment of the Take 5 bar is my favorite.

I thought that pretzel M&Ms would be just as good as the discontinued crispy variety. Those were my favorite variety of all time. I was very sad when they were discontinued. I heard they taste the same. Sorry to say they don’t. I should stop reading the message board I read that on. It also said that Annie’s Macaroni is better than Kraft. To me it’s not. I love my blue box. This is not a macaroni blog, so I won’t go into more detail comparing the 2.

The pretzel M&Ms are too salty. I know they wouldn’t taste crispy. They don’t taste anything like the old crispy variety. I tried to take a picture of the candy, but it didn't come out. I had to use an image search to find a picture of the candy. They are oddly shaped, and not uniform.
A message to the Mars candy company please get rid of pretzel and bring back crispy.

Junky Buick

I was inspired by something that happened today to post this blog. I had been teasing this blog since January. I actually wrote about this in my memoir class as a writing exercise, but since I thought it was potential blog material I did not share it with the class. The exercise was to write about a used car. I was sort of upset when I wrote it because I couldn't reference my "Free Day!" blog. Here is an excerpt from the rant blog I wrote about the day they picked up the Buick from my grandma. The blog was titled "Making a Buck off the Dead".

"My dad is going to try make another profit off his dead uncle. When he died he left a car. My grandparents took it. They were not sure what they were going to do with it. At first they were just going to sell it. Then they were going to trade it in because it was a clunker, but they waited too long. By the time they were ready to the program was over.

So my parents went off to get the car from my grandma’s house.

For me that means free day! ^-^ "

Anyway here is the story about the Buick. (it's somewhat edited) That junky Buick my dad coveted. Since it was from his favorite now dead uncle. Actually this can blossom into some good blog material. Dad thinks his uncle left behind a lot of "valuable" things including his car. My grandma was messing around because her and my grandpa wanted to cash it in for Cash for Clunkers, but when the money ran out from that program they let dad have it. I didn't bother going to pick it up. Why should I? I got a free day! (drawings of anime emoticons) Although it didn't take as long as I hoped. Since dad thinks he's always right. (Garbage song reference edited out) He couldn't see that car was a piece of junk from the get go. He got rid of the Grand Am for that?! He should know better. I say "should" and emphasize it. I know that from People's Court getting a car you know nothing about in an impulse buy. He didn't even get it checked out after he got it back home. Just because it was 2 years newer didn't make it better. His uncle obviously didn't take care of the car. The tires were rotten. It leaks fluid. The passenger side door won't open properly. The interior side of the passenger door is coming apart. His uncle left a bunch of renuzits (stick-ons) in the car to make it smell better. I think there is something wrong with the trunk. But he wanted it because it has power everything which by the way doesn't work! The power of stupidity. An old man driving an old car. It's like that Seinfeld joke about tiny old people in huge cars.

Lupin the 3rd series III

I just started watching this yesterday. I heard this is the worst of the 3 television series. They characters look "funny". Lupin looks goofier than usual. Jigen's orange shirt looks tacky. I always thought Jigen was the best dressed of the bunch. I don't understand why Zenigata is wearing a green trench coat. Goemon has a square shaped jaw. Perhaps they were given an updated 80s wardrobe? Pastel jackets are very 1980s.

The strange thing was the closing song it's scenes from Los Angeles. There was a billboard for KMET. How historical! The billboard was right sideup. It said "94.7 Rocks KMET". There are other Los Angeles scenes like a palm tree lined street and the Santa Monica Pier sign. These episodes originally aired in Japan 1984-1985.

I don't know how comprehensive this review will be since the show will be on UTB for the next 10 weeks. There are 50 episodes and they are shown Monday through Friday.

Here is somebody's review of series III. There is a lot of Lupin information on that site.

Monday, July 19, 2010

For some reason my twitter is not working. I think there are overall problems with the site, and it's not just me. My whole page is blank! Except for the Doremi background.

Yesterday I was watching J-Melo on UTB/NHK World, and they had a ska band on there called OreSkaBand. They are really good, but I'm a sucker for ska music. Isn't ska in its 4th wave? I really wish there was a book or tv series on the California ska scene of the 80s and 90s.

"God, Please Spare me more Rejection!"

I was thinking about how some songs retain or become relevant again. I was thinking about this while I was watching the video for "Why Don't You Get a Job?" by The Offspring. That song came out in 1999. It gets a lot of airplay now even though the song is 11 years old. It's better than constantly hearing "The Kids Aren't Alright". I can't stand to listen to that song anymore.

I thought about how much I liked the song "Army" by Ben Folds Five back then. After watching some of those music videos I recorded off the tv circa 1999. I could probably write a lazy memoir (narrative) for each song on the list.

I'm feeling generous, so here is a somewhat lazy memoir. It was a rejected submission. I thought it wasn't fit to turn in. It needed a little editing. The idea came about when the class was trying to brain storm different ways to present a memoir besides the narrative format. Some people also did poetry. Lists were also a popular idea. Personally I liked the idea of a playlist. It didn't need to only be musical. It could be a list of movies, books, or tv shows.

Note: All the songs mentioned are not necessarily from 1998/1999.

Besides the lazy memoir I posted I want to talk about going back to school. I don't know why people don't understand there is no money left. With no funding I can't go anywhere or do anything. That's why I've been looking for work. I was hoping I'd be lucky enough to find something, but with the lack of degree. I've found nothing! Why are people mad at me? I'm not insolent this time. This really is a problem. I'm not lying.

It Has the Word "Trick" Written all Over it

I did get my free day today! ^-^

Too bad the thing I want to use for my Halloween costume has discolored. :( It was something white. Maybe I can try to wash it or alter it in some way. I'm stumped at the moment, but I think I can figure out something. Luckily I started now and not in late September.

I updated my previous entry and added 2 pictures. After making that screen cap. I've had the song "Ladyfingers" stuck in my head all day.

I got to do things I don't really get to do like listen to music aloud. I never get to do that when my dad is home. He needs his "quiet time", but listening to baseball and/or classic rock is for some strange reason. I watched my DVDs. I really don't get to watch those.

My dad had a bad time at the beach because there was nobody there to assist him. He squirted sunblock on himself, and crumbled his energy bar all over himself.

I'm very weary, and that has been getting in the way of me doing things. But with my dad I'm still weary even if it does hurt me. Dinner was a trick. I had to go with him to this place that "happens" to be by his school and I have to "see" it. His reason is that I have to know where his school is in case of an emergency? :/ The funny thing is that he mispronounced the name of the restaurant. He was calling it "Wabo" it's really called "Waba". Perhaps he was mixing it up with the old bank chain Wamu? I don't know. It's a beef bowl type place. My dad the great conversationist asks if people from his school in the school scrubs come to that place. I ordered a beef and chicken teryaki rice bowl. It's ok. I thought the onions on it would be cooked, but they were raw. That was the only bad thing about it. I didn't finish it not because I didn't like it or it was too big. It was too hot outside for me to eat.

He told me he now knows how to print one page out of many. Like page 2 out of 5 pages. He tries to get my mom to study with him. He use to get me to do it until I told him I got a "C" in frosh health science in 9th grade. (Which is true, and I'm embarrassed I'm admitting this.)

I've got Ladyfingers

Catch the title reference? ;P
Here is a bad quality screen cap from the Ladyfingers video.

I didn't get to buy some gloves at the mall. I heard Claire's doesn't sell them anymore. :( Now I'm going to have to find a different accessory store or try a place that sells formals/a bridal shop. I'm preferably looking for a local place with good prices. I've been using a bunch of those directory sites.

I ended up splurging on a retro style Rainbow Brite notebook. There were other cute Rainbow Brite things like pencils, pens, magnets, novelty accessories. Some of the stuff even had Tickled Pink on it.

I might get a free day tomorrow if my dad goes to the beach. I don't like going with him which I've mentioned before. I haven't had a free day since January. I should use that time to work on my Halloween costume.

Survivor Flame

I distinctly remember this happening when I was a junior because I remember thinking about Survivor. That show premiered during the summer 2000.

I had to go to some type of officer meeting. It was during the evening after school. Nobody told me the dress code of the event. I came in there was wearing the same jeans and t-shirt I wore to school. I was embarrassed that the even was semi-formal. I took a seat in the back next to another girl wearing some jeans. Although her top was fancier than mine. It was a ruffley corset type top. Like this. I didn’t want to be noticed. The meeting was for a changing of the officers. There was something about a candle and a flame being passed on or something like that. I can’t really remember. All I really remember about it was that it sort of reminded me of the torches used at tribal council that were used in Survivor. Because like Jeff Probst says fire represents life. I imagined somebody’s flame going out. (Somebody I didn‘t like). I also imagined Jeff Probst putting out somebody’s flame.

miscellaneous blog #33

No lazy memoir today.

I have such a hard time shopping. My mom and my shopping styles clash. She is a driver and I'm an expressive. Except when I'm buying electronics; I'm an analytical. I've been sold too many bad electronics. I need to buy some supplies for my Halloween costume. It's already July, and I need supplies. Well the supplies I can get now. I think I might have to pick up a white turtle neck in a few months.

I'm going to post this question on the blog. If you something broke (like a cell phone or such something replaceable) and you didn't have the money at the moment to replace it. Would you "beg, borrow or steal"? to get another one?

I bought some of these gummi raspberries at the mall. I didn't like them.

Have you seen clips of this show Photon? It's freaky. I don't remember this show since it came out in 1986. It looks pretty cheesey. There is not much I can find about the series on the internet. Matt did review it on X-E a while ago. Which makes me wonder what the live action American version of Sailor Moon would have been like? I was thinking about that Sailor Moon episode "VR Madness" (I'm using the dub title). Which make me think about an idea I had a few years ago for a haunted VR/laser tag arcade. Ok, I got the idea from watching that Sailor Moon episode.

Didn't George Stenibrenner find a fitting day to pass away on? The MLB All Star Game, and a year an American League team is hosting. I thought about how he was portrayed on Seinfeld and voiced by Larry David. I was gonna use a quote from "The Jimmy" episode, but it was too long. Here is a quote from "The Muffin Tops" "How do you make that alcoholic chicken?".

I actually watched part of the game. I really wasn't planning to. I only wanted to see Amber Riley/Mercedes from Glee sing the national anthem. Too bad Gwen didn't do it. She is an Anaheim native. After all these years the National League team won an All Star Game. They hadn't won since 1996! I was 12 back then.

With Honors

My position in the Honor Society was questionable at best. I never felt I was really in the club. Most of this happened during my messy junior year. Half the time I wasn’t even sure if I was in it. That was due to my academic probation and the “no F” rule. Which meant that if you had an F in any class you were immediately kicked out of any extracurricular actives you participated in. Or at least that’s how I understood it. Whenever anybody else (student or teacher) explained the rule to me it got “changed”. The details of this rule were sketchy at best.

The club really only needed me for “grunt work” or when people didn’t show up for something. Let’s see I was only really “needed” 3 times.

I was needed to help make the “flower” tissue paper banner for the graduating class. It’s a large number banner that is hung over the football scoreboard, or at least it use to be. The other thing that I didn’t like was that the club was always taking random pictures of the members doing mundane things. Does somebody really need to see a picture of me cutting up tissue paper? Those pictures weren’t even used for the year book or anything.

I had to help at the graduation as an “usher” I‘m using the term loosely. It was so horrible! First I didn’t have the right clothes; which was a white collared shirt with a black bottom. Everybody knows that collared shirts are more fancy than uncolored shirts. Aside from the clothes I wore; I was being told to do different things from different people. One person told me to get drinks then as I got them somebody else told me I was not suppose to get them. Huh? Then a bunch of people just bitched at me. Including office workers who were just there attending the graduation, and had no part in the club. They didn’t even let us have the unopened leftover water bottles to drink!

When I was a senior the club needed people to help garden the school. They wanted the members to go and help garden the school during the winter break! We had to bring our own tools! It was so boring! Hardly anybody came because who would want to spend a morning of your break off from school at school? They must have been pretty desperate for people to call me up. I would not have been on the “second string” list I would have been on the “desperate” list. I think I got a call about it the night before. I only went because I was desperate for service hours. After I graduated sometimes I would pass by the school during winter break, and see students going to school carrying gardening tools. The teacher who advised the club was a gardener. She use to grow beautiful orchids.

This is why I like to take easy classes I’ll excel at more than hard classes I might fail. I’d rather look smart than be up for a challenge. For some reason people are impressed with good grades no matter if you took remedial math and aced it or if you got an A in calculus.

There is another antidote about me going to a club meeting that I can write from memory. It happened in 2000 because I was a junior and I remember thinking about Survivor. I’ll save that for another time.

It's strange that my dad was more interested in getting a slurpee than me. Last year he thought I was lying. Honestly I forgot. I had to "see" the cup since my dad is so attention starved. He was complaining about how small it is. I know its small. Duh! It's 7.11 oz.

I think I know why Rachel from Glee is one of my favorite characters. She reminds me of myself when I was in high school. I was very determined and goal oriented back then. I did not want to be a singer. I know I'm a horrible singer, and have for many years.

Maybe my hurdles in driving are in my head and only in my head, don't talk about it. Why I can't be brave like the time I decided to finally get my ears pierced at 16. Too old?! I know. After I got my ears pierced I threw out almost all my old clip-ons. I didn't need them. I think I gave them to my mom. Having to wear clip-ons was so embarrassing.

I think if I get humiliated enough I can get motivated to do something. Prime cult property, or maybe even some other group where people need to be initiated.

Here are some reasons/excuses why I didn't want to drive. I did not want to get stuck running errands. I think/thought my dad was trying to trick me. The humiliation of not knowing how to drive, and the winters of waiting in the rain gave me some incentive.

I have a hard time distinguishing impudence from living in the moment.

Who knows? I might even like driving. I could be like Haruka/Amara. She loves driving. She is one of my favorite characters, but Usagi/Serena is still my favorite.

I Dream of Pop Tarts

I've been having some pretty wacky dreams. I had a strange one about Glee. The funny thing was in this dream they sang "made up" songs. Please don't tell me to "write" these songs because I have no idea how to do that. I was singing along with them. We sang a song called "Superball". It was a Queen-style song. The lyrics were kind of silly. When it was my turn to sing it I forgot the words!

I had another crazy dream about shopping at this clothing store called "The Diva's Closet". The store had dark red crushed velvet draped on the walls. The store sold outrageous clothes. I think there was one of those high heel couches in the store. It was also decorated with these giant eyeballs hanging from the ceiling. They were about beach ball size.

The last dream I'm writing about is about is a crazy Lupin the 3rd dream. I think I've been watching too much Lupin. In my dreams they speak English, but I've been watching subs. It was goofy Lupin stole some Pop Tarts and stashed them in a safe. Zenigata was looking for them.

Do you want a lazy memoir/antidote? I'll write one for tomorrow.

I'm Not a Poet, and I Know It

Here are somethings I didn't mention my mom didn't feel the earthquake yesterday. She was the only one in the house who didn't feel it.

My pride has gone out the window I'm pretty much desperate for work. As long as it's not an MLM or something like that. I've stooped that low. :(

Here is a lazy memoir about poetry.
Why I don’t write poetry. It’s not that I don’t like poetry. I like reading it. I just hate that everybody thinks they are a poet. You can find bad poetry anywhere; on myspace, public bathrooms, in weepy notebooks, and so This is one thing I think I’m not good at. I never felt I could be a good poet. I hate the poetry I write. It’s too contrived. I think I’m good at narratives, so I’ll stick with that. My poetry is so bad I won’t even post it.

Shut up and Pray!

Here is the book review I was going to post. I forgot the name of some of the characters. The book is not that fresh in my mind. I read it like 5 months ago.

Here is a book review I should have written awhile ago. It is for the book Eat Pray Love. Since this book was used in Oprah’s book club there is a surplus of them. You can get physical copies of the book for cheap. I think I paid less than $5 for my copy. That includes shipping. This contains spoilers, so if you want to see the movie or read the book don’t read this. You have been warned.

First of all the book is broken up into 3 parts; Italy, India and Indonesia. I really liked the beginning of the book where Liz is crying because she doesn’t want to have a baby.

Italy was interesting. I liked this part of the book. She takes Italian lessons, and eats a bunch of Italian food. She always wanted to learn Italian.

I like the part about her thinking she’ll be the aunt who wears a mood ring and read horoscopes. That was a scary thought since I thought that could be me; eventually.

India was the most boring part. I was so sick of being in Liz’s head. She couldn’t shut down her mind, and she complained about doing that for awhile in the India section. I got so frustrated reading that part of the book I wanted to scream at her “Just shut up and pray!”. Enough! Little miss cheesecake/groceries. Of course that is the part of the book when she meets Richard from Texas. He died recently, so you can be all sad about that.

Indonesia was ok. You knew Liz was going to get scammed by Wayan. It was so predictable. The road trip part was fun. Liz gets to speak “American” English. She also meets some guy there who I forget the name of. The one that becomes her boyfriend. The part when she is harassed by the kid on the beach was silly/confusing.

I did like her writing style…sort of; the descriptiveness of it. I wish I could write as descriptive as that. Describing ham as lusty is an art form! Don’t forget to sign a petition mentally. I think I couldn’t relate to the perkiness of her, her tendencies to get lost in a guy, and travel writing. All and all it is a “chick book”. You will like it if you like those kind of things. The movie will probably be a “chick flick“. I’m not really into those. I do watch them occasionally.

Half Charmed Phone

I was upset that one of the charms off my phone broke off. :( Now I only have one charm on it. That is a sign I need to get some new charms and a new phone. Luckily the charm broke off in my pocket, so I didn't completely lose it.

Here is something funny the teller at the bank had same first name as me. She wasn't wearing a name tag. But how hard is it to find somebody with the same first name as me?

Bought some of those pretzel M&Ms. Maybe I'll post a blog on them. I heard they are like the crispy ones which were sadly discontinued. They were my favorite variety. :(

I've been studying pictures of Rainbow Brite and Tickled Pink (old style) to see how I can make a Tickled Pink costume. I want it to be modest though. I wonder if I can get away with wearing pink Converse with the costume. I'm hoping that can be my costume for next Halloween 2011.

I think I should post a book review soon. I was going to post it a while ago, but I kept forgetting.

I heard security is a stable job. Maybe I should get into that. I do have to get a card. Last time I applied for a security job I didn't take it because my dad told me not to. I stupidly listened to him. This was back in 2004.

Cat Scratch Fireworks

This blog has nothing to do with the song or the cartoon.

I just wrote that because I was scratched by a cat. It kind of sounds like a brand of fireworks or something. I was going to write about the 4th of July, but I really didn't know what to say. My poor baby cousin got scared by some loud illegal fireworks. :(

I met one of my goals today. I read some of that book from class. I only read a few short stories before dinner. A lot of those stories are long. I didn't want to read a story about food because I was hungry. I'm not sure if anybody else wrote about food besides me. I read about 3-4 short stories; they were less than a page long. Some people printed stories in really large font size like 18. It doesn't make the story look longer.

Weekend Off

I forgot to mention that Anime Expo started yesterday. Regretfully I will not be attending this year.

I was planning on posting a lazy memoir, but none of them are finished. So think of this as an abbreviated blog. Maybe I should take the weekend off for the holiday?

Lazy Memoirs

I thought I’d get an early start on this blog.

Since it’s July now I should set some goals for the month. Let’s see…how about I write some “lazy memoirs”? A lazy memoir is a memoir I tried to write, but didn’t quite get finished or the story doesn’t really have a proper ending. It will be like that skit from SNL with Jack Handey. The Fuzzy Memories ones.

I want to finish up the blogs I’ve been gathering material for. I’ve been working on more sticker blogs.I should crack that book I got from my memoir class, and read at least some of it. (stories I didn‘t write) 0;)

Here is something strange those annoying career people called me 6 times yesterday! Their calling pattern is really strange. They called at 9:50 AM, 10:42 AM, 2:13 PM, 2:16 PM, 2:40PM, and 4:56 PM. Today they cut their calls to me in half and only called 3 times. Again the calling pattern was strange. They called at 10:21 AM, 10:52 AM and 6:32 PM. Why call in clusters? :/

Good news! I got a good grade in my sales class. I thought I’d get a C or something, but not a D or F. (It‘s higher than a C). I wonder what my grade is from the memoir class? Maybe it will be like Maeby Funke's report card it makes me feel like a jack in the box.
