I’m so lucky to have a stress reliever like this blog! I have found the hardest work of having a blog is starting. To get that thought process going, and to open something to type it in, and then just letting the words flow is easy. Except when I get to this point. Where I don’t know where to go. Then the trick is to just keep going. Keep typing, even if it’s nonsense. I’ve noticed the ones I get the most comments on are the ones that are just senseless rambles. THEN, SOMEONE SENDS ME AN INSTANT MESSAGE *cough*Marissa*cough* and makes me lose my thought process. Did I really need to know your money status on farm town, IN THE MIDDLE OF WRITING A BLOG!?! It’s all right, you don’t know I’m writing a blog, and I love your love of farm town. I’m glad that you have spare money! Now don’t spend it all in one place.

See, I just got distracted. This blog is not going very well. Now that I said that all my comments will be, “oh marina I loved this post,” or something of that manner! But then again the sense less ones are usually rid of sense, and this one makes sense. It’s a blog about blogging. That makes sense, doesn’t it?

Mostly because of her blissful ignorance of thinking Grissom was BITING his girlfriend! She has obviously never seen a cat kiss!

What brings you back to this blog?
What makes you type in address to see if there is a new post?
(or add me to your google reader ;))

I KEEP COMING BACK BECAUSE IT’S MY BLOG! And if I ditched myself…. That would be horrible.

When I hang my head over the couch, Mr. G decides it is time for some lovin and rubs against my hand. I think it is one of the cutest things he could do. Other than when he was a kitten and had a girlfriend. I think I will post picture of his girlfriend here
Yes, that is one of those cute little beanie babies we used to all know and love. Back in the 90’s. I miss the 90’s. I miss my childhood.
little me
That is me at a young age, if you didn’t guess
Has anyone ever seen one of those Myspace bulletins or Facebook notes of, “You know you’re a 90‘s kid if:” and there was a huge list of cartoons, and toys, and phrases from the 90’s. I think I will now reference to that for the rest of this post.

I will bold the ones I remember, and maybe I will give some commentary on some 😉

You’re a 90’s kid if:

You’ve ever ended a sentence with the word “PSYCHE!”

You can sing the rap to “The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air”
I didn’t actually know this in the 90’s but learned it this year =]

You remember when Kurt Cobain, Tu Pac, River Phoenix, and Selena died.

You know that “WOAH” comes from Joey from “Blossom” and that “How Rude!” comes from Stephanie from “Full House”
Full House was my addiction. I have seen every episode 3 times or more

You remember when it was actually worth getting up early
on a Saturday to watch cartoons.

You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.

You remember reading “Goosebumps”
I never got to much into it, just read one or two, but I had friends who where more obsessed. I was more into the Choose your own adventure and Choose your own nightmare

You know the profound meaning of “Wax on, wax off”

You have pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.

You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.
I had this ridiculously small bugs bunny one, that hardly could hold half a sandwich, but I thought it was so cool I didn’t care

You danced to “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, Females: had a new motto, Males: got a whole lot gay-er. (so tell me what you want, what you really really want.)

You remember the craze, then the banning of slap bracelets and slam books.
I also remember making my own out of those metal tape measurers

You still get the urge to say “NOT” after (almost) every sentence…Not…

Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? was both a game and a TV game show.

Captain Planet.

You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green Ranger were meant to be together.

When playing power rangers with friends you fought over who got to be who…………and still all ended up being Tommy.

You remember when Super Nintendo’s became popular.

You remember watching home alone 1, 2 , and 3……..and tried to pull the pranks on “intruders”
Well I wouldn’t pull them on intruders, just my mom (:

“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”

You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates

Two words… Trapper Keeper.
well that was more a 5th, 6th grade thing

You never got injured on a Slip ‘n’ Slide

You wore socks over leggings scrunched down

“Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack, all dressed in black, black, black, with silver buttons, buttons, buttons, all down her back, back, back” SHE ASKED HER MOTHER MOTHER MOTHER FOR FIFTY CENTS CENTS CENTS TO SEE THE ELEPHANTS PHANTS PHANTS JUMP OVER THE FENCE THE FENCE THE FENCE
he jumped so high high high he touched the sky sky sky and he didnt come back back back til the forth of july ly ly he jumped so low ow ow he stubbed his toe toe toe and thats the end end end of the elephants show show show

You remember boom boxes vs. cd players

You remember New Kids on The Block when they were cool

You knew all the characters names and their life stories on “Saved By The Bell”

You played and/or collected “Pogs”

You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere
The original versions where a million times better than the “connect” versions

You watched the original Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Ninja Turtles


Yikes pencils and erasers were the stuff!
And I loved the smell, even though now I know that the smell is horrible

All your school supplies were “Lisa Frank” brand.(pencils.notebooks.binders.etc.)
I still have a lisa frank binder in my bedroom 😀

You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes.

You remember a time before the WB.

You’ve gotten creeped out by “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”
I love watching old episodes on you tube!

You know the Macarena by heart.

“Talk to the hand” … enough said

You thought Brain would finally take over the world
THAT SHOW WAS THE BOMB! It’s Pinky and the Brain Brain Brain BRAIN!

You always said, “Then why don’t you marry it!”

You remember when everyone went slinky crazy.
I still remember the smell of my Grandma’s musty basement from pushing them down her steps

You remember when razor scooters were cool.
When did they stop being cool? 😉

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed the trip down memory lane! I did cut out a lot at the end so if you want more make sure to check out the link I posted towards the top!

Who thinks I am hiding something magical!

What is your favorite 90’s memory?
Mine would have to be just being a kid and not worrying about fitting in and boys and making friends by saying hi, and that was just enough.

Okay first thing’s first. I want to clear up something that I don’t think was clear on yesterday’s post. I enjoy comparing the book to the movie. How about I explain my process, with an example, Twilight. I’m only picking this one because it is the most explainable one for me. When I see the movie the first time (especially when it’s at the theater) I have no expectations what so ever. That way I can enjoy the movie, for the movie. Then I watch the movie again with the intents to pick it apart, to see why they did what they did, and how they changed it, what scenes where added/deleted, and things like that. Now I did not do that with the first two Harry Potter movies after reading them, since I own both of those movies and have already seen them as the movie, separate for the book. Once it gets to the fourth movie, which I have not seen, then I will use my 2 view process. I suggest if you are watching a movie based off a book that you really enjoy, don’t try and tear it apart the first time you see it. It will ruin the viewing experience for you, and you will always see the movie as a bad rip off of the book. My mom was telling me about a class she took in college. It was from book to movie. They would read the book, then watch the movie in class, and would have to pull the movie apart and analyze it. The only one she remembers doing is To Kill A Mocking Bird.

I would like to move to the topic of school required reading. I’m sure we all have had the required amount of time to read in early elementary school. Which I think is great. In 6th grade we had two required readings. The first time we had to pick something within our lexile range (determined by the MAP test.) I picked Animal Farm, which is a very deep book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and suggest it to anyone who is interested in politics and animals, and pigs who take over. Also keep in mind if you read it, that it is required reading for a large amount of college classes, so if you are against re-reading books, you may want to wait. The second required reading was an assigned book. Now she didn’t make us all read one book, but had about 8 different books and assigned them to different leveled kids. I had received The Diary of Anne Frank. Now when receiving this, I was very happy. I had always enjoyed Anne Frank, and had not had a chance to read her diary yet. Now keep in mind that book is quite thick, with small writing. Now another book she gave out to lower leveled kids, had 80 pages in it. These where not the dyslexic, or learning handicapped ones in the class, just people who had a lower lexile range. Now we had to read these books in the same amount of time the other students had to read theirs. Now this class is the only time I have ever received detention, because I would fall to far behind. I do not think that this was a very fair assignment.

Now to fast forward to eighth grade. I really enjoyed this year in English. The fall musical/spring play director teaches it, and he is one of my favorite adult people. I also must mention that I was in the accelerated course, and these books where not expected to be read by the majority of my grade. I really enjoyed both of these books, and would periodically spend time out of class to read ahead. For those of you curious in what books these where, they where; And Then There Where None, and The Adventures of Charlotte Doyle. We also read The Merchant of Venice.

One more fast forward to ninth grade. The books that where required reading where; Romeo and Juliet, The Christmas Carol, and The Miracle Worker. Overall I enjoyed Romeo and Juliet and The Miracle Worker, but I did not enjoy The Christmas Carol. I had a very hard time following Dicken’s writing style. It was to descriptive for me, and just felt to drawn out.

Commenter of the day:
Which a difference she noticed from book to movie was: In the 1st book, they left out the MIDNIGHT DUEL. Which was practical, of course, as it wasn’t a real significant part but I always remembered that. They also left out Dudley’s friend Piers, but again, he isn’t beneficial to the story. For the most part, I trust the movies, you know?

Question of the day:
What have you had as required reading that you have enjoyed?

-The road to success is always under construction.

Tomorrow I have my first day of Driver’s Education. I’m actually excited, even though I’ve heard several horror stories of just how boring it is. Even if it is Boring, it will still be Driver’s Education. In my state you can take Driver’s Ed at 15 and take the driver’s permit test once passing the class. I’m 16, which is the age where most kids take their driver’s test, and get their license. So yes I am a little behind. Also I should add that most of the people I have heard from that it is boring also find almost all of their classes boring. One thing that I’m not looking forward with it is that there will be mostly the grade under me and my grade in the class. If I would of taken it this time last year it would have been mostly the grade above me, which I would prefer. But it’s not last year, I will have to live with it.

 The class is 2 weeks long 9am-12pm Monday-Thursday, Friday being the makeup day. My friend Beatrice who is also 16 and the grade above me is also enrolled in the class. The worst part of that is that the seating arrangement is alphabetical. With my last name starting with an L and her last name with a W, we will not be seated next to each other. 😦

 So as many of you know I still have my kitty Grissom with me. If you go back to this post you will see that he was going to be given up. It has been over a month and he is still here. I’m hoping that my mom has just procrastinated to the point that it is just not going to happen.

Grissom :D

 In other pet related news, my mom has laid down the law that no snakes will be entering this house on purpose. She did however say she would be fine with a lizard. Right now I am looking at Geckos. I’d like a Blue Tongue Skink, but we don’t have room for a 40 gallon tank, believe it or not. I’m really excited about this Gecko business! I am saving up my money (yes again) so I can buy a tank for it, since our 10 gallon tank won’t cut it. I also will need a good chunk of money for the Gecko, tank accessories, and heating accessories. Not to mention crickets to feed it, and money to buy crickets for awhile after buying it.

 If you could take a road trip to any place in the country with no worry of paying for gas or having a vehicle/license, where would you go?

 I would go to the state in which Nora and Marissa reside in to pick them up, then Washington and then too California, then back to Nora and Marissa’s state to drop them back off, and back home!

 Commenter of the day for my last post is Michelle who’s answer to the question: “What is your dream number of kids/order/gender?” was “I think when I settle down, I’d like to have 3-4 kids. I know I want at least one boy and one girl. Possibly 2 of each.”

-the road to success is always under construction

p.s. No punishment for last post for having no featured commenter for 2 reasons.

 A) No one caught it XD

 B) No one answered the question other than Marissa who had one the day before.

The first punishment. Here is a picture I took of the drawing:
first punishment
You won’t believe how relieved I was, seeing the only other one was running around outside with under wear on my head, and my neighbors are all outside. So now I get to write about M.

Marissa and me met through Nora. I found Nora on youtube, and we became friends, then I saw she would hang around with this crazy girl, and I thought she was pretty cool, so I added her on facebook, and then the worlded exploded with awesomeness.

Marissa is Miss. Tuesday on thesexymacaroni. Her videos are all pretty humorous, and so are the rest of the sexy elbow noodles, so go subscribe now.

Marissa is a computer genious. She is the one who taught me how to zip and unzip files. She also helped me get back all of the music I lost on itunes.

Marissa loves this band called Owl City. She loves all music. Well she loves everything, other than feet. I wonder if I drew a snake on my foot if she would love my foot. Marissa, can you give us your input on that? k, thanks!

Marissa is in this wonderful thing called nerdfighterlike with this boy she met on the ning. His name is Zach. He has a yahoo, and that is just about all I know about him other than he has black curly hair. This blog is not about this Zach character, but about Marissa.

Marissa and I have these epic late night msn convos. Half the time her side of the conversation is in captital letters, and is plainly awesome. We talk about everything from her parents, to her love of creatures, to wrock, to vegetarianism, and everything beyond and between those. We also talk about Degrassi: The Next Generation alot. Those conversations are very entertaining on my side because I useally know what is going to happen, and she doesn’t, and she freaks out. Then I get confused because her reaction is histerical and yet I’m like OH NO THIS HORRIBLE THING JUST HAPPENED ON DEGRASSI! If you get what I’m saying.

What else can I say about this nerdfighter? Her last name is BEEEEEP, and her address is BEEEEP. Now go stalk her ;).

I will now end this post with a picture of the previously mentioned dawg.
Yes that is how she always looks. Her style is very simular to the robbers in the movies, or she is goth, I’m not sure which.

-Marissa’s road to success is always under construction

p.s. new page! hit it up!


It is: What is your favorite creature?
Mine is my cat Grissom at the moment, seeing he is tired and sleepy and cute!
The featured commenter from before is Marissa of course, since this post is about her! (her favorite food was Italian)


My fingers itch to type. I have a dilemma. I don’t know what to type. I’m going to go babysit in 17 minutes, but that is boring. I turned in my (i picture the following said in an exited Marissa type voice) VERY FIRST JOB APPLICATION!!(end Marissa voice.) I could talk about the every so amazing music I am listening too. But no, none of that is interesting enough to fill a whole post of a blog!

I KNOW I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!! I will talk about snazzy made up words and phrases! One that I have been thinking about a lot lately is “world suck.” I don’t know why it has been occupying my mind so much lately, but I think that it just contains so much power in just two words. Then the word “readomattic.” This is the word that inspired this theme. It is on my little dashboard thing here on wordpress. Any word that has omattic added to the end just had the awesomeness increase 10 fold! How about the world snazzy? That is pretty snazzy in it self. I also love how my spell check is recognizing the word. This is the point in which I go on urbandictionary and look up snazzy:

a combination of snappy and jazzy. to show something’s just too hip for one word to contain it.

usually used by soccer moms and people that like to use really lame adjectives to describe things because no one else will.

guy1: so, you like my new pants? i think they’re snazzy.

Urbandictionary portrays this word as a bad word. What is wrong with soccer moms? And what you call “really lame adjectives,” just shows how “really lame” the author of that definition is. Don’t you agree? I agree.

I am now going to divert you too a different subject. Regular readers by now means that the post is coming to an end soon since my “different subjects” usually are short and pointless. Now hopefully the person in this picture won’t mind the posting of it:


This is from Nora’s birthday video that Marissa made. I took a screen shot, then edited the crap out of it. I think It turned out to look something along the lines of a 1990s cd cover? Which is pretty awesome, if you ask me. And if your a Curious George i used Gimp and Picasa to edit that. Both free to download, just google them!

-I’m now off to babysit!

p.s. my spell check recognizes snazzy nut not Google? FAIL!!!!

HI BLOGGY! I’m glad I’m writing this now and not an hour and a half ago. I have a draft of todays blog. it was depressing. Lets say I had a notsome day with lots of imature people, freshman and teachers alike. But i’m not notsome now so, BLOG STOP BRINGING ME BACK TO THAT MOOD! So today I’ve been mood swinging alot. Okay since I got home I have been. So I thought i would take a chance to write a list (more of a list and explanation of each item on the list) of everything that makes me happy and or smile!

  • My online friends: Nora and Marissa you two are my best online friends ever! Okay i’ve only had 2 before you that lasted more than like an hour but STILL! You both know how to make me smile. marissa and your optimism! Nora and your awesome ideas! I’m so exited for our book exchange! I’m exited for both of your letters! You both can expect a little somthing that isn’t just the letter (book for Nora) in your mail boxes around the middle to end of next week!
  • Lunch Period: My Sophmore friends are amazing! I went to lunch today all notsome and barely talking. How did I leave lunch you might ask. I left it smiling and laughing to myself!
  • Video Productions: Useally this would make me feel notsome. But now I’m editing a video with my bestie in it and she just got so into her role that its hillarious. It was intended to be a drama, but she, she with her marvolous acting skills turned it into more of a comedy. I always have people peeking over my shoulder seeing what the grunting and evil laughing is!
  • Visiting old friends/family: does this need explanation

okay i’m getting distracted now by planning for this weekend! I hope You enjoyed
