weird words

Yesterday I was looking up weird words. . . .
 I didn't know there were words for some of these things.

  • Tyrotoxism - to be poisoned by cheese
  • Nudiustertian - The day before yesterday
  • Turophile - a connoisseur of cheese; a cheese fancier

  • Gribble - a small marine isopod crustacean that destroys submerged timber. 
  • Pelf - money, riches
  • Frittle - a temporary mark on the skin caused by the impression of a textured surface
  • Ort - a morsel left at a meal: scrap
  • Gormless - lacking intelligence: stupid 


So today at school, for the final lit project, we were divided into groups and had to each perform a scene from Romeo and Juliet. (=P). Anyways, each group had to pick a theme. Some people chose normal ones, like modern-day, or the 50/60s, or a beach (my group) but some groups chose weirder ones, like the Lion King (they made lion suits out of construction paper), Italian mobsters ( they all wore suits, trench coats, and carried baseball bats), and Cave people (made huge bones and clubs out of paper mache). Themes were fun, but I hated acting.

cooties + fire

Today at school, we had to make a list of things we've learned, one for each grade, K-8. So I filled mine up with random things like, "To Read" "Multiplication" "That procrastinating is bad". Other people wrote weird things like "Not to eat the yellow snow" and "How to draw a manatee". One guy at my table said "I need help. What did I learn in 1st and 8th Grade?! Wait! I got it! That girls don't have cooties!". In. . .  1st. . . I. . . learned. . . that. . . girls . . . don't. . .have. . . wait! How do you spell 'cooties'?" I told him. He said, "In. . . 8th. . .grade. . .I. . .learned. . . how . . .to . . .spell. . . cooties.". Overhearing our conversation, a guy at the table next to us said, "Yeah? Well in Kindergarten I learned that you don't catch on fire when you touch a girl". I congratulated him on his discovery.

On the side of my house there's a ladder. I really don't know why it's there, but it is, just leaning against the the wall. Anyways, the other day, my younger sister was climbing it. I told her to get off of it because it wasn't unfolded all the way or stable, and she could fall. She said "It's fine! It's just really wobbly!". Yeah. . . . a wobbly ladder. No problem there. . .

So I really have nothing to post about. I had an idea for a post, but lost it. So, this is going to be a really boring post about the rainbow I saw today. Today, I saw a rainbow on my way home form soccer practice. That's it.

So today a friend of mine was telling me about how last summer, she and some friends made posters with inspirational quotes on them that they hung up around the neigbhorhood. I asked for an example of one of their quotes. "I am a champion. And you are fat." Very inspirational isn't it?

"An apple a day will keep anyone away, if thrown hard enough."

suction cups

Today in Science we learned about air pressure. By using suction cups to climb up the wall in the girl's bathroom.

At the park today, I was pushing my younger sister on the swing. On the swing next to us was a kid about this same age being pushed by his mom. The two of them were discussing rules. After each listing some pretty basic ones, the little boy said "We're not allowed to stack fire hydrants for a science project". Well okaay. . . I guess that's not usually a good idea. . .


 So, six months ago, I read this post on One Man 1Million Ideas. (6 months ago because they haven't posted since). I kinda liked this one (1 of 2). Everybody walking around in capes. . .
"This idea i had a while ago. I shared it with my friends however I still think this could be a real money maker if done correctly.
Capes! plain and simple. What ever happened to them? nurses used to wear them.. they don't anymore. Imagine the world with people wearing capes. Running to catch the end of the pedestrian crossing light and the cape will fly up. I think it would make the world so much fun.
There are so many options. Winter capes, Summer Capes (towel version), Designer Capes. Uh, its endless. Not to mention DOG CAPES! now this is where i think it gets really financially viable. Dog Capes! the stuff that people spend on their dogs, dog clothes, dog shoes, dog sunglasses! why not dog capes. they would look extremely cute..."

Not crazy about the dog capes but still. . .


So, yesterday I had to play 2 soccer games for a soccer tournament. It was freezing and raining the whole time. Today, it's super sunny outside and warm. Why couldn't it have been like this yesterday? Fate hates me. 
Anyways, for science I have to keep a log of the weather in any city in the US. As I was looking up weird city names, I came across Burnt Corn, Alabama. Why would anybody name a a city "Burnt Corn"? Just curious. . .

a poem

Willie with a thirst for gore,
Nailed his sister to the door.
His mother said with humor quaint,
Careful Willie don't scratch the paint!


So, I found these cool markers. You know how toy lightsabers open up when you shake them? These markers do the same thing. You shake them and they expand out of this little tube into an almost-full-length marker. I was entertained all the way through English and Religion. : )

So, on the side bar, i have this "funny things to ponder" thing. One day, it said, "why is the alphabet in the order it's in?" and so I thought, duh, because that way it's in alphabetical order. Needless to say, I felt pretty stupid after that,  and now I'm really curious as to why the order of the alphabet is the way it is. . .

I have nothing to say, so here are some pictures. yeah. . .

Today I was easting a box of pink nerds and in it was one purple one.


So, today I tried the Splitz yogurt, you know, the kind that's supposed to taste like ice cream? Yeah, so in the commercial, kids chased after another because he had this awesome ice cream-flavored yogurt and there was ice cream truck music coming from it. The commercial lies. A) it tastes like yogurt, not ice cream. B) no music played when I tore off the lid.

On the bottom of Zhu Zhu pets (the little toy hamsters on wheels) there are warning stickers. One reads: "CAUTION: To avoid entanglement, keep away from hair" (there are wheels on the bottom). I wonder if they found that out the hard way. . .

In my neighborhood, there's a guy who rides his skateboard around, except he has his dog pull him. Seriously, he puts his dog on a leash and speeds down the street. Makes me laugh whenever I see him. =)

spanish song

In Spanish yesterday we learned a new song. It's a happy-banjo song featuring the excuses some guy made for not doing his spanish homework.
First my dog ate it,
Second my dog vomited,
Third my brother lost it,
Fourth my backpack disappeared,
Fifth my neigbhor died,
Sixth it's against my religion,
Seventh my car exploded,
Eighth I got sick and had to go to the doctor.
(in spainsh)
And that's why he couldn't do his spanish homework.
Wish my teacher would believe me when I said my car exploded. . .

In Literature, we're acting out Romeo and Juliet. The person who was playing Mercutio realized that they had forgotten their book in their locker, so ha ran out into the hall to go get it. So, my teacher hates it when we forget stuff, and even more when we run out of her classroom without asking to go get whatever it is. So, once he's out the door, she tells the rest of us, "Ok, so when he comes back in the door, let's all hiss at him." He walks in the door, everybody hisses, he looks at all of us, and goes to the "stage".  She told us she should have us hiss at people more often. No way am I forgetting anything again.

no fun

So, we have a long-term sub. in Religion class, and he wants us to do anything but have fun. For example, one day, after they had finished the worksheet we were assigned during class, two people started playing hangman. Our sub came over and said...
"Did you guys finish your worksheet?"
"Ok, then you should be working on other homework"
"But we don't have any. It's only second hour, and we didn't get any English homework"
"Then why don't you read ahead in Literature in Romeo and Juliet?"
"We've both already finished it"
"Why don't you re-read it"
"But we've already re-read it"
"Give me that paper, please" *takes paper, rips it, and throws it away*

See my point. He would rather have had them read Romeo and Juliet for a third time then quietly play hangman. He's taken books away from my and shredded my drawings, which i've worked hard on. It''s ridiculous.


Today I stayed after school with some other people to study for a math placement test. While we were there, my math teacher gave us all candy canes. I was sitting at a table with 3 other girls, and one blew the other from across the table. The girl who was blown at went "What the heck! Don't blow on me!" the girl who blew on her replied, "But it was a peppermint breeze!". She didn't argue anymore.

bin Laden

So, as most people know, Osama bin Laden was killed yesterdaay. In spanish, we had to write phone-conversation skits, and for ours, my group did a ransom call. The person that the kidnapper is calling asks who he is, and he replies "Leonardo." and in the backround, the kid he kidnapped shouts "NO! It's not leonardo, it's Osama bin Laden! Help! Help! He's back!" (in spanish). Yep, bin Laden has risen from  the dead just to participate in our failure spanish skit.
