"Okay, letsee what I can write for a Kanga post..."
I usually write anything down that I find interesting enough to post on my Kanga, but the pages were pretty much blank. All I got was "paper!" on Tuesday, and I dunno if a retelling of me reminding myself to get lined paper for my binders is worth any of your time, but it's too late cuz you already finished the sentence SUCKA.
Let's just talk about last week!
Last Friday I got asked to Sadies. Hohohohosnap, right? It was one of them "clue every period, guess who!" kindsa things, but I had a good guess as to who it was. So yay for me getting asked! At least I could experience getting asked to this kinda thing once in my life, and es nice. WHERE WERE YOU GIRL-ASKERS THOSE OTHER FIVE YEARS, HM?!
Last Saturday was GAHR ALL-COMERS TRACK MEET! I'll do something officially this time... Place: Gahr Date: February 14th Ran: 60 meters
Why, you ask if you read that bold text there, did I just run the 60 meters? Well I'll (probably) never get another chance to run it in my life (since no more all-comers), so why not do it at that meet?! Good thinking, Kevin! Besides, I was sick and I didn't wanna run against Usain Boltettes* in any of the other sprints.
60meter time: 7.35
And that's about all I ran. The rest of the meet I just spectated, cheered, Chipotle-intermissioned, and took pictures. SPEAKING OF PICTURES, look at that one to the right! IT'S A PICTURE OF SOMEONE'S SPIKES! Yeah I didn't take too many good pictures this day.
Now "all-comers" means anyone can come at any time to compete. It also means that anyone can LEAVE at any time, and this was clearly evident when the meet ended with about 5% of the runners still there. There was one 4x400 relay team that Javi and I watched.
This meet got me quite excited about track! Quitecited. WEARING SPIKES IS FUN.
Last... Two days ago Oh hey I did have something to write about this week! Friday was contemporary media's 2ND FILM FESTIVAL! I was nervous again when our film played again, but not as much as last time. DUDE our (CraigDianaJoshJonathanStephanieSarah) film got 4th place, TWO VOTES away from 3rd place! We got jipped more than water! That makes sense, right? A leaky faucet jips water? Whatever.
And since Kanga is all about bursting bubbles, it might's well do one now! Yknow that one movie "Driven" that tied for 1st place? Yeah the film's shots were really nice, but do you know why? Cuz they had a super-mega-powerful-monster camera that is worth like three times the other groups' small tiny cameras! The pretty shots weren't obtained by skill, they just used a fancier camera! Plus they used a program called After Effects to add some kindsa effects and stuff. Man I should totally whip out my Adobe Flash and throw in some stick figure fighting into my next movie...
Haah okay I'm really not that bitter or anything. I'm sorry, "Driven" group, I just wanted to say something.
My group didn't get top three, and at first I was kinda "awww okay...", but later that night I realized how proud I was of my group and our film... and that was really proud! It wasn't an ideal masterpiece by any means, but I know we did a pretty bang up job!
Wait. Does "bang up" have a sexual innuendo back story? Is "bang up" even an actual idiom? Am I really too lazy to Google this? Isn't weird how "Google" has become a verb, along with "Youtube" and "Wiki"? Who knows!
I'll post our actual contemp movie, In Blindsight, later.
And that's my life.
OH yeah remember that "What Is Wow" animation I made for the PTA Reflections thing? WELL IT MADE IT TO STATE LEVEL! YAY!!!
OH yeah and my birthday is coming up! Instead of compiling a wish list, I've compiled something else:
My -opposite of wish list- List (A list of stuff that I don't want)
1. Socks or underwear 2. A puppy (I like em, I just don't want one) 3. DEAD BABIES 4. The third Flight book (I already have that one) 5. Poison 6. Hunger 7. An old wallet (already own it!) 8. Not a massage (Translation: I WANT A MASSAGE. Like, 100 of em.) 9. A virus on my computer 10. A virus in my body 11. Gum... A) on my shoe, B) in my hair, C) filling any of the holes on my body. 12. Anything girly
PLEASE DO NOT MISTAKE THIS FOR A WISH LIST. IT IS NOT A WISH LIST.
Does anyone remember what I asked for last year on my Kanga? Well I never got it. NEVER. 364 DAYS OF NOT IT.
I actually have a regular wish list, but I'd feel cocky posting it on my Kanga, and I'd rather not feel like poultry on birthday thank you very much. 'EY OH! If you don't wanna get me anything, then that's totally cool but I'd disown you if I were your dad. If you do wanna get me something, you know what I like, you know what I love.
Yknow what's an even COOLER word?! Orbligortion. Haha. Sounds like alien poo.
Immaturities aside, I felt obligated to update my Kanga. Actually, I felt that way every day of this week, but my scheduling was a bit out of wack, I was sick, and I was busy getting food out of those 4 new holes in my mouth. I can't post when I'm constantly rinsing my mouth!
But today is Sunday, I have free time, I don't feel AS sick, and my mouth is pretty much clean. Time to fulfill my orbligortion.
Last Friday Whitney vs. Oxford B(boy)ball game! Since I missed Whitney's homecoming due to a bad case of cheekplosions, I decided to watch Oxford's game at their school! EXCITIN' STUFF, MAN! Summary o' da game: Ox totally made fun our cheer squad, and then we totally owned them by cheering along with their lil act, and they were like "what da eff", and then later on we cheered them on again for being jerky, and then they cheered us on for cheering them on, which made no sense and it kinda awkward cuz we were just cheering for each other, and then later they got pissed so they lined up along the court, and then all our players were awesome and we beat them by almost 30 points again.
That deserves a little bit of "WE TOTALLY", and a tad bit of "OOWWNED!"!
Rivalry can be fun.
Speaking of rivalry!
Last Sunday Superbowl! If Kevin is gonna watch any kind of bowl, it OF COURSE has to be the SUPER bowl, right!? Hoho... Yeah I actually watched the whoooole thing! First time ever. Well okay, I did switch between the Super Bowl and the Chowder Bowl (Chowder is arguably more imaginative), but the Super Bowl was SO exciting I couldn't NOT finish the game! I was rooting for the underdogish Cardinals, btw.
Favorite Super Bowl commercial as seen in my profile:
HAHAHAHA DAYDREAM PUNCHING SMALL ANIMALS!! Increasingly hilarious.
Tuesday Free food! Breakfast at 6:30am at Denny's for $0?! Yes, priceless meals. Beat that, Master Card commercials. Apparently this was Denny's response to the recession? Or maybe they just had a surplus of pancakes? Or maybe they like getting people fat? Whatever the reason, FREE FOOD is GOOD FOOD!
Oh barely made it back to school in time.
Wednesday I used to doubt the intelligence of the people in my class. Not the book smart stuff, they're good at that, they can all totally kick my cheeks in chess, backgammon, Jeans tests, spelling quizzes, SATACTS, and knowing why kids loves Cinnamon Toast Crunch so much. I'm just saying that I used to think that when it came to common sense or whatever, most of us just sorta followed whatever whoever told em. Yeah I know that's sorta a bad assumption.
But then in Econ, I heard all of these "Last Lectures", speeches from students about what wisdom about life they'd like to share. And yknow, it made everyone sound preeetty profound. I thought it was all gonna be like "no regrets!" and "try your best!", surface level wussy Jell-O, but most of the time I was actually quite impressed with their advice. Yay. Again, it's a horrible assumption that SOME Whitneyites aren't too "hot in thought", I'm sorry, but I think my pereception has really changed. Oh God that last part of the sentence sounded like a college esssay. I should stop talking about this.
Thursday On Thursday I broke my garage. Yes you read that correctly, I BROKE MY GARAGE. My garage door, actually. Ysee I was backing the van out after I drove it in for shelter from the rain, and then the antenna got caught on... something, I'm not sure exactly what happened. Next thing I knew, screw things were popping out all over the place when I tried to close the door. Did noot see it coming.
Those wheel things should not be on the ground.
I spent all afternoon trying to fix it. Got my hands all dirty and received a couple cuts. After more than an hour and a half trying to shield the garage from the pouring rain, it got stuck on the wall so I just had to wait until my dad got home. Turns out some cable broke. Yes he got pissed. Yes he called a repair man. Yes it was expensive.
Honestly, if I had the ability to write "SORRY" in the sky with the clouds, I totally would (because that would be really awesome). But right now it's cool, my parents are quite forgiving when it comes to very accidental accidents.
Friday Sick! I am so sick of my sickness. I actually got sick on Wednesday, then it died down on Thursday, then it got worse today, Friday. Coughing, sneezing, sore throat, chills, ingrown nosehair (which, if long enough, would just become regular hair outside my nose). I had all the symtoms! The weird part was my temperatures on the various days (color coded for convenience):
Wed: 100.5 Fri: 97.7 Sat: 99.7 Sun: 98.2
What the heck is that?! Fever? Cold? Make up your mind or just heal! Silly body.
Saturday - Sunday Raaaiiin! And finally... rain! It's been raining for the past few days, and I'd have loved it like a panda riding a zebra, but I'm SICK, so it's a lot harder to appreciate cold water falling from the sky.
Alright, so time for reflection. What did you learn from this week, Kevin?
Well, Kevin, I learned that sports are exciting, Mondays are boring, free food is delicious, I shouldn't underestimate people, antenna on large cars are annoying, being sick sucks, and rain is still as awesome as poppy seeds in a poppy seed muffin. I like poppy seed muffins.
