About this blog

I am not a random, non-sensical lunatic, and my blog is not full of inane rants and ravings. What's so great about that stuff anyway?

planning my life - #2

okay, so ive though about it and have come to a conclusion. my parents have been saving for college for me, and i'm going to be able to get A LOT of scholarships. so ive decided it would be smart to go to college after highschool, and utilize the opportunity; and maybe i'll figure out what i want to do after a couple years. thats what my parents were suggesting anyway (see that? i'm listening to my parents. at least in part), just taking general courses until i get a better idea. who knows, i mi

planning my life - advice?

i'm seventeen. in the spring of 2008, i will graduate highschool. for a long time, ive been sort of passive about what happened to me, sort of going with the flow. I realized ive been almost distanced from what was happening to me. as if i was a spectator. anyway, about a week ago, for some reason it occured to me that i was actually in charge, more or less, of my life. i now have no idea what i want to DO with the rest of my life. my parents have steered me towards definitely going to college a

a bird in a gilded cage

i wanted to share this old vaudeville song with anyone who wants to read it: The ballroom was filled with fashion's throng, It shone with a thousand lights; And there was a woman who passed along, The fairest of all the sights. A girl to her lover then softly sighed, "There's riches at her command." "But she married for wealth, not for love," he cried! "Though she lives in a mansion grand." "She's only a bird in a gilded cage, A beautiful sight to see. You may think she's h

revised band list

in april i made an entry that was a list of my favorite bands. well, my tastes have changed alot since that time (for instance, im tired of country music, zydeco, and alot of my previously favorite rock bands) so today i started out with a mission: make a new, revised and improved list of my favorite bands. but i kept narrowing down and narrowing down the old, way-too-lengthy list until i ended up with just this: Peter, Paul and Mary (Folk) John Denver (Folk/Country/Pop) James Taylor (Folk

liberal dumbness

okay, the greatest manifestation of stupidity on a liberal television news channel ever......... theres a big bad criminal on the run, hes wanted by the law badly, theres a huge manhunt thing, and the news channel describes him with details like: wearing a grey parka and bright orange tennis shoes clean-shaven so-and-so feet tall last seen in so-and-so sort of vehicle and so on. but they never, NEVER tell you if he's a black guy, a white guy, an oriental guy, or whatever, because thats

this is another photograph of me, very recent. but everybody knows the real reason i posted it is so i can have an excuse to make my blog pop up to the beginning of the list. http://img236.imageshack.us/my.php?image=me4hu6jd.png and this is also recent. i am in my pirouge, but i had to crop it out or the picture would be too big. you can see my mudboots, though! http://img286.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mepirouge7wj.png

Beauty - (theory)

i will start this thread off with a reflection on beauty. i have a theory on what humans find beautiful, but i shall get to it in a second. these days, the ideally beautiful woman is very thin. have you ever looked at the Mona Lisa? in the time that was painted, she was the idea of a perfect beauty. but if youve ever really looked at her, you would see that, by today's standards, she's kind of chubby to be a ravishing beauty. see that lady? thats Ruth Ke'elikolani. she was once considere

More Leftist Idiocy

well, what do you know, the liberals in California are now b****ing and whining about school busing. one of them said on the news this morning 'tremendous amounts of money are being spent on school busing, money which could be better spent on actual education'. (or something to that effect, im not quoting him exactly). well, gosh, havent the conservatives been saying that all along? since those exact same california liberals started the whole fuss about 'school busing for integration' to begin w

Giraffes / Full-Gosple / Great-Good / Thingies

I apologize, but this is one of those completely pointless, totally thoughtless, just plain dumb entries. I don’t blame you for ignoring it, im half ignoring it myself. I wonder if giraffes realize how goofy they look. Although, goofy is probably a purely human concept. I went to a Full-Gosple Church yesterday. now, im a catholic, so as you can imagine, this was quite an experience. at the end of the mass (wait, protestants dont call it mass, do they?) or service, or whatever, the priest (w

China / Toys for Teens / Burnside/ Country / Hell

You know whats wierd? if you think about it, (and you live in the United States) people in China are WALKING UPSIDE-DOWN!!!!! and to them, WE are the upside-down ones. freaky! I dont know what the deal is with older kids and toys. where is the unwritten rule that says kids past twelve can only get video games, and not toys? im about to have my birthday, and im getting several dinosaur toys, a Squirmy-Wirmy, and a couple other toys. Maman still gets stuffed animals (plushies). if thats what i

Dukes of Hazzard / Theme

Theyre making part of the Dukes of Hazzard movie right down the road from us. we could drive there, and actually we did. Jessica Simpson is playing Daisy, which shes perfect for; shes already a pea-braind blonde, so she doesnt even have to act, just be herself and wear tiny little shorts. when we drove by the place they were filming it, we looked for her, but didnt see her. shucks, we could have killed her in a drive-by shooting. yeah, i hate celebrities. In that movie, i hope they use the sa

CLAYTON DELANEY

The Year That Clayton Delaney Died, by Hall Tom T I remember THE YEAR THAT CLAYTON DELANEY DIED They said for the last two weeks That he suffered and cried It made a big impression on me Although I was a barefoot kid They said he got religion at the end And I'm glad that he did Clayton was the best guitar picker In our town I thought he was a hero And I used to follow Clayton around I often wondered why Clayton Who seemed so good to me Never took his guitar And m

Celebrities

you know the most annoying thing about celebrities? they want to get all active in politics and stuff, but they dont know the slightest thing about the condition the country is in. come on, theyre spoiled-rotten, pampered, rich kids, what do they know about normal working people or what the nation needs? theyre so out of touch with reality its ridiculous. if all those celebrities want to go to Canada or Europe because Bush won the election, ha ha, bye! send me an autographed postcard! its like..

the Mardi Gras

evolution / ants

i do believe most of evolution, but this part of the theory never quite cut it for me. just some random mutation (which is, after all, a genetic defect, a mistake, an accident) turns out beneficial and the animal with the mutation turns out to be better suited to its invironment? that just plain doesnt make sense. entropy say that ordered structures become disordered by random mistakes. mutations cause genetic info to be lost, not gained. wouldnt mutations in just body cells end up making cancer

half empty half full / horrible

just in case you dont know, there is this old saying, much like the 'which came first, the chicken or the egg?' saying, that says 'is a cup half empty, or half full?'. well, this is my idea on it: if the cup was completely empty, and its got water up to its middle mark but its still being filled, then its HALF FULL. because its in the process of being filled. if the cup was completely full, and its got water up to its middle mark but is being emptied, then its HALF EMPTY. because its in

Fields have Turned Brown

my favorite song of all time. I left my old home to travel this country My mother and dad said "son, don't go wrong" Remember that God will always watch oe'r you And we'll always be waiting for you here at home. "Son don't go astray" - thats they both told me Remember that love for God can be found But now they're both gone - this letter just told me For years they've been dead; the fields have turned brown For many long years I've rambled in sorrow No thoughts of the day whe

King Mudboots

i just realized something. UM has its kings: theres a king of posting, a king of sarcasm, a king of arguing, a king of debating, a king of topic-making, even a king (or queen) of smilies, and of course a king of moderators. but i......i am not the king, or prince, or master, or even poster child of anything. there is nothing i can be called a king at, nothing i excel in, nothing i do here particularly well, and, actually, nothing to get noticed for. im just this kid that hangs around. well, no

it just happens today is your lucky day, Mme. Dot (and all you other folks who are surely dying for a genuine recipe instead of that redneck stuff)!

cheese, crackers, and skeptics

a couple folks have asked me to join in with the skeptics club. but, im not sure i want to, or if i would go in there. first of all, im not entirely sure i qualify. i believe in voodoo, ley lines (up to a point), mental vibrations, and life on other planets (not UFO's or aliens as in greys, but life. animals and bacteria, you know). and thats about all in the Unexplained. but, while i am very skeptical towards the unexplained, i think i more than qualify as a believer in God and religion and suc
