Defenestration: the act of throwing someone/thing out of a window

Saturday, November 27, 2010


Last week, I helped out at my grandparent's church's lutefisk dinner (for anybody who doesn't know, lutefisk is fish that people soak in butter and other sauce that is a traditional sidedish in Norway and Sweden). During the dinner, their priest sang songs and everybody sang along. One went something like this:

Oh lutefisk, oh lutefisk,
How horrid your aroma.
Oh lutefisk, oh lutefisk,
you put me in a coma.
You smell like glue,
and taste like shoe...

And ended with: I guess I'll eat you anyway...
Or something similar, to the tune of ''Oh Christmas Tree"

Today, I went to a website with a color changing watermelon... I'm honestly wondering why somebody bothered to make this site... http://www.unliketherest.com/
On Halloween, my family sang Christmas carols, and last night (Thanksgiving) we made ginger bread houses.

icy saturday

Last Saturday, It was super icy out. The streets and sidewalks were completely covered in ice, and it was the kind you don't see until you've slipped on it. So when my sister went outside, she fell right away. Then, later, all of us were out there sliding around. It was awesome. On the down side, there were more than 370 car crashes in Minnesota, and the Vikings failed their game.

super duper frustrating board game

In religion, we had to make board games as a project on the unit we were learning about. I was playing these other people's board game, and it was sooooo frustrating because there were four corners, each with a star or start on it. If you landed on a space with a question on it, if you got the question right, you could move to the next star. But the problem was, if you landed on a star, you had to move back to the one before it. So every time you got a question right, you had to go back, like 10 spaces. So basically you never moved anywhere. And the start/finish was on a star too, and the goal of the game was to go aroundas many times as you could. aka: it had no end. Oh. my. gosh. most. frustrating. game. ever.


So on my mom's ipad, we have this game called fruit ninja (funnest game ever!) and when you finish the game, it gives you a random fruit fact. Appearently, sometimes trained monkeys are used to harvest coconuts.

In Morocco, camel races are a popular sport, since they can run as fast as horses and camel fights also attract a large audience. (useless knowledge sidebar)


So the night before last I woke up at like 2am and it was snowing. By the time I got out of bed @ 7:30, it was still snowing. Then I got in the car with my mom and sister and drove for 45 minuets (usually a 25 minute drive) to the ski hill for dry land, and it snowed the whole way and the whole time i was there. And it was still snowing on the way back. It continued to snow for most of the rest of the day.

Okay so in science we are learning about the planets and my teacher told us how NASA is considering terraforming mars (turning it into another earth) since there could have been life there long ago and it could be kind of like an extinct earth so we could possibly live there. And that got me thinking, what if mars was exactly like earth, and the marsians thought," oh no, our planet is being destroyed, we should terraform another so we could move there", and made earth?And then they die off before we know about them. And so we were actually made from microorganisms the marsians sent over and we are thinking of doing the same thing back and it's just this ongoing cycle? Ahh! confusing.

So today i stayed after school for 45 minuets. In that time, Pebbles and I painted a huge, like, 15 foot long poster and splatter painted it (and the classroom floor, desks, and ourselves) in neon pink and orange for our school service project, coins for cancer.

So when I was walking home from school, I was about to cross the street, but had to wait because a man sitting on a skateboard was being pulled by his tiny (like foot tall) dog. So many questions.

Facebook Dream

So the other night I had a dream about Facebook (hence the title), which is strange because I don't have or want a facebook. So, in my dream, I was going to the facebook headquarters to get a facebook (duh). To get there, I had to ride on a bicycle from 1950 down this long dirt road until I got to the facebook building, which was huge and grey. Inside there was this HUGE pond/pool/lake right in the middle and about 5 floors around it like a stadium. Also there were huge tv screens everywhere, advertizing kids birthday parties. There were seriously pictures of little fat kids with balloons saying "I had my birthday at Facebook!". Soooo weird.
