So yes, the swine flu. The world's going batshit crazy about it. In my little corner of the world no one's been reported to have it, though I fear for Caitlyn, who went home early.
My former Lang. Arts teacher is a total germophobe and he totes disinfected every inch of his classroom, I swear. Mr. W wants us to wipe our desks down twice a week instead of twice a month. Mr. L, my current science teacher, bought hand sanitizer. Mrs. F doesn't seem that perturbed.
Go Mrs. F. :P
I'll wait a moment before I get to the epic fail part though. First of all, I leeched BSG season one off of Caitlyn! Yay! *happy dance*
Next, the class discussion about the digestive system in Mrs. F's class started thusly:
Mrs. F: "All of us humans (not Cylons) need food in order to survive."
Talk about EPIC WIN. Which, btw, is spelled E-P-I-C W-I-N.
I also borrowed New Moon. Bella is such an emo kid right now.
Okay, here's the WTF moment of the day.
Mrs. F and I are talking about BSG, missing Billy, and crack!fics while she's on duty (supervising the lunch tables) when this guy comes onto campus randomly and asks for a girl named (using made up name) Emily.
Mrs. F, naturally, doesn't trust him and tells him to tell the office.
The guy gets pissed off and was all like, "Don't talk to me." He walks off. Mrs. F and I gape at him.
Me: "That was crossing a line."
The guy comes back, and by now the little group is consisting of Mrs. F (Laura Roslin Reincarnate of the Epic Win), Mr. W (history teacher), and me (acting like a third wheel).
Mr. W: (to the guy, in his military authoritarian voice) "Excuse me, but I do believe you disregarded my colleague here."
Guy: (Still Not Getting It) "Don't talk to me! Come on, Emily, we're leaving!"
Mrs. F: (being all epic and Laura Roslin-ish) "Why do you say that?
Guy: "You guys are racist whites." (he's African-American, btw)
Mr. W: "Excuse me, but that sort of talk is not acceptable."
Guy: "Don't talk to me! Nuh-uh, don't talk to me! You're all racists!"
Mr. W: (looks ready to murder)
Mrs. F: "LOOK AT ALL THESE PEOPLE AROUND YOU!"
Mrs. F: "LOOK AT THEM! YOU CAN ASK ANYONE HERE IF WE'RE RACIST OR NOT!"
Guy: "Emily, we're leaving."
Emily: "Ignore my brother-in-law. Please." (looking mortified)
Mrs. F: (eyeroll) "Oh yeah, we're SO racist."
Me: "What is he ON?"
Talk about EPIC FAIL. And random. :P
why is it that little kids love what older kids consider as chores? my little bro Kenny's always eager to do homework and stuff. :P
dishwashing is apparently no different. my two little brothers, Kenny and Lewis are more willing to do the dishwashing duty than their older sister, me. :P
mom: Lily, you're doing the dishes tonight.
Kenny: I wanna do the dishes!
Lewis: I wanna do the dishes!
Kenny: I'll wash the bowls and plates!
Lewis: I'll wash the phone!
mom, dad, and Lily: *crack up*

You might have noticed that I haven't updated since...... a long time ago.
But the Yampavai Lodge at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon doesn't have wifi and you have to pay for it at Bellagio.
I know, depressing. :[
I tend to forget a lot of things, so here's another thing from yesterday. I was at that Wild Animal Park observing the birds in the aviary. There were two birds (Amazons, I believe. :P) that acted so nice and cozy that I was tempted to call them the "Roslin and Adama birds". I took a lot of photos of them; I'll picspam later.
Today we went to the Painted Desert, home to the Petrified Forest. It was... petrified. And ancient. They didn't allow us to take any petrified wood from the park, and my brothers and cousins threw hissy fits at that. We also went to Meteor Crater and some other pretty places whose names I totally forgot. :P Airlock me.
One of them was the ruins of a Hopi settlement, though. A few miles from that is this tall plateau with a wall. It looked creepily like the mountaintop where Adama built the cabin in Daybreak. I wanted to take pictures, but we were moving too fast. :[
Meteor Crater was windy. My hair got all messed up in the photos. As the name might suggest, the crater was created by a meteor. The Meteor Crater museum played a ten-minute movie about the place and later in the gift shop I bought something for Mrs. F...fossilized fish. ;P
After that we went to see petrified wood. Whee.
We had dinner at Denny's. The waitress seriously screwed up all of our orders. It was eventful. My bro Kenny and my cousin Ashley were cutting their french fries up and sprinkling salt on their ketchup. No comment.
I listened to just about every song on iRoslin on the drives in between the sites. I think I might make a Bella/Edward fanmix, because I'm just like that. :P And I might continue some BSG fanfic, but I barely have time cos Mom and Dad don't allow me to write or read in the car. XP
Conveniently forgot yesterday that we went to an outlet mall at Barstow. I saw Helo there.
No, not in the flesh. As an action figure. :P
I should have bought him. ;]
Finished Twilight. Great. I forgot to check out the rest, thinking I'll spend the whole week on Twilight. Guess I forgot just how fast I can read with time to kill. Now the only other thing left is Tom Sawyer. :P x[
Went to a wild animal park today. Funny thing about it is that it's right next to a prison and a courthouse. :P
After that we went to Sedona. It was spiffy. I met with a Chinese school classmate there. We're all BFFs, so we went to dinner together. Yum, fried bananas... :]
Mah little bro is acting up right now. :P
I listened to "River Flows In You" (Bella/Edward theme) on the way to Sedona. The piece right after it on iRoslin is "Roslin and Adama". Of course, da A/R theme totally pwned Bella/Edward's piano piece. Come on, what's a piddly little piano next to an orchestra? ;]
We're going to Vegas on Thursday and we're staying at the Bellagio there. ;]
Hey, I'm in Arizona! :P
The travel plan's for us to go to Flagstaff and stay there for three days. Then we'll go to the Grand Canyon and finally to Vegas.
The car ride was Boring with a capital B. I listened to iRoslin and read Twilight. Whee.
So far, I've kinda conceded that yes, Bella is a Mary Sue and Edward is a Gary Stu. But then again, Mary Sues and Gary Stus belong together (so the better characterized can get left alone :P). Verdict? I is a Bella/Edward shipper.
Jacob seems pretty awesome, but I haven't seen much of him yet. Alice has just made her entrance. Carlisle is awesome. :]
As for teams, I'm still neutral. Edward is pretty cool (despite being a Gary Stu) and I think Bella is lucky to get someone like him-even if the price is him being a vampire. :P Life's a bitch and then you get bitten.
Their relationship is rather unrealistic, I have to agree. It goes from "I hate you" to "I love you" in a matter of chapters. I wanted more a friendship between the two. Like an Adama/Roslin sort of partnership/friendship. But I guess because Edward is allegedly hot that that's not much of an option. :P ;]
But back to life. It is good. Ish. I miss mah friends. :[
Anyone going to Vegas or the Grand Canyon? Plz keep me company!!!!! ;] *looks pointedly at laurandbillever *
I'm reading Twilight for the first time. The verdict so far is...
Bella's borderline-Sue as of this moment. Edward's pretty cool, I haven't seen Jacob yet, and it seems to me that everyone frakking LOVES Bella here. Um. WTF, man?
Right now, she's clumsy, yes. She looks plain (but people think she looks nice, I guess). She's related to the police chief, she's done just about everything in the cirriculum (and was in AP in Phoenix), she can cook, and she's got Perfect McPerfection mildly interested in her.
Once again, I'm reserving on dealing the final Mary Sue sentence. I can smell a downward spiral into Suedom for her, though.
But otherwise, it's pretty interesting.
In other news, Mrs. F got to the part in S3 where the resistance escapes! :] I printed out misscam 's latest story (A Murder on Galactica, the best mystery fanfic I've read so far. Laik srsly) and read bits of it to her. She likes it. :]
*happy dance* I'm going to Vegas and the Grand Canyone tomorrow! And I might have intrawebz cos mom's bringing da laptop. Yay!
The trial's utter fail, btw. Mr. W seriously rigged it. What the frak? We found Brown innocent and he turned the camera off and yelled at us.
I was a defense witness whose character's father was in the prosecution. Does that remind you of anyone? Especially since I tried to make a passionate speech about justice and my "dad" was all like, "wtf?". It was LOL. And the judge kept spinning around in his chair. The baliff swore in the attorney instead of the witness, which was LOL, too. And Caitlyn was doing camera duty and constantly zoomed in on people's zits and freckles and stuff. x]
I want a blooperreel. I mean, I seriously screwed up my part... :P Hopefully no one will call me out on bad grammar 'cos I used "me and my friend" instead of "my friend and I". It's called NERVES. :P
In other news...
I made three animated "Battlestar Twilightica" icons. Why, no, this isn't supposed to be a jab at ANYTHING. *looks innocent*.
( of three things i was absolutely positive )
(unfortunately the second and the third are too big for LJ. I have no idea how to "downsize" them. :P)
I also made icons off of the kittycats.
( cat, i'm a kittycat. and i dance dance dance and i dance dance dance. )
can be found at lepetitrien.
Please, Friday, come sooner! I'm going to the Grand Canyon next week for spring break. :]
Today in Language Arts we had a chat about Dances With Wolves. Which is odd, because we're supposed to be discussing quack remedies in Tom Sawyer and how Twain satirizes it. But that's Ms. C for you. :P
It went like this:
Ms. C: Has anyone watched Dances With Wolves?
Me: *is doodling on sticky notes* Bwuh? *perks up* Dances With Wolves? OH MY GODS MARY MCDONNELL WAS IN THAT MOVIE!!!!
Ms. C: *eyeroll* Yes...
You see, Ms. C is not as awesome as Mrs. F. Why? Well, she doesn't care about Mary McDonnell. I know, le gasp! MM is, like, the most awesome actress evar!
Which is why I want to go to Dragon*Con, gods damnit!
now there are pictures.
( meow )
In other news... Mrs. F, Caitlyn, and I want to go to Dragon*Con, but it's on the other side of the country. *pouts* As soon as I get wind of one with Mary McDonnell and Katee Sackhoff in the Los Angeles area, we are so going and we're going to dress up! :]
I think I'll go as Boomer for Halloween. Now, where do I get military tanks?
Mrs. F looks very presidential. She has a suit jacket and a white crossover blouse. ;]
Oh, and in other-other news, it's icedteainthebag 's birthday! :] ( Bill looks like Lawrence of Arabia. :P )
Happy birfday, icedtea. You wanted Bill in Laura's headscarf. ;]
"So. Yes, this is mah lj. Spiffy, non? The header's a little spoilery and kinda odd but that A/R and BSG for ya and the blurb is also a little spoilery but let's just forget that and move on to other stuff, kthnx.
"First off, there's the PPC. They go around fandoms and kill Mary Sues and shit. They're also insane. I have two Agents and two Scientists and they're all loony in some way. There are also minis, which are little monsters that spawn from mispelled character names. I have mini-Balrogs and mini-Dragons and mini-Centurions. Go me.
"Next thing is BSG. It's Battlestar Galactica, the best show on TV since... ever, and it ended on March 20th. *sniff* I miss mah BSG, so I write a lot of fanfic. Fanfic is a fan's story about an already published/aired/what have you-ed story...show...thing. It's very good practice for writing Original Fic.
"There's bad fanfic and there's good fanfic. The bad fanfic I like to make fun of here. They'll be friendslocked. Mwahahahahahhaha.
"Finally, there's stuff about life. Mrs. F is code for a certain person I'm sure you all know about. Other people are just other people.
"One last thing: MY JOURNAL IS MINE, GODSDAMNIT AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE AN ENTRY, DON'T BOTHER REPLYING TO TELL ME WHAT AN INSENSITIVE JERK THAT I AM! Although those might be friendslocked as well... :P
"So yes, that's mah lj. Welcome to the insanity."
only downside is NO MORE BSG WAHHHHHHHHHHHH. :[
Mrs. F gave me a HUGE bag of skittles and now I'm on a semi-sugar high.
She also bought me a latte! :]
And then I watched my former history teacher, who was in the army, coach PE. First-class entertainment right there. I felt like I was at an OFU watching fanbrats get tortured. x]
I'm thinking up my next fanmix. It'll have songs from other movies and TV shows, and they'll all apply somehow to A/R. (Esp. "Ballad of a Bitter End"...) I think I'll call it "Across the Universe". :]
