[ music | a CD of Chinese lullabyes (for baby) ]

I haven't been able to get on blurty lately. That could be just blurty itself acting up, or it could be because of this stupid gov't censorship thing. They block all sorts of websites from China, and when you watch the news, the screen randomly goes blank when there's something they don't want you to see. I'm having trouble doing this webquest thing I'm supposed to do for English, dammit.

There's this tacky-looking pagoda thing a few blocks from our hotel, and it has a CD store, a McDonalds and this restaurant called Pizza Sunday that actually makes deccent pizza (compared to the other places we've tried), but you have to make sure you order pizza sauce and cheese or it won't come with it. For 5 Rimimbi extra you can get it with toppings ranging from squib to strawberries.

Tonight we're packing up to fly to Guanxio (or something like that) tommorrow to get some papers for the baby signed or something. I have quite a bit of homework left to do ::crosses fingers::

We visited a Chinese farm house the other day and I kept getting this weird urge to play Harvest Moon. China's nice, but I'm missing America....

I'm too lazy today to write a lot, so I'll just re-cap...

Friday - Woooo-Hoooooooo! German trip! And then I get one night off a weekend now (from being grounded) so we went out, and there was people, and bagels, and stuff.... parts of it I don't remember...

|+| Highlights (from the German trip and later that night) |+|
|+| the bus ride
|+| little pre-packaged sandwich boxes (they had veggitarian!!!)

|+| my little extra-special glowsticks!
|+| stuff...


Saturday - Nothing, I don't think. I was grounded. I packed a little for China.

Today - I have work around 2, Halloween party for the doggies!!

anything to keep me breathing...

arghhhhhhhhhhhh!

School to work to the fucking Mayorial debate, and now onto this fucking 20 line shit thing I gotta do. I am trying, but I'm distracted. I don't know..... but at work the computer kept crashing on me, and then the cash register went psycho, and I thought I was gonna be late for the extra credit (which I DO need)...

But, in other news, somebody's away message looks awfully depressed!!! Maybe he asked her out and she said no - I can only hope! (lmao.... that's horrible... lemme 'lone!)

But he's prolly just depressed cuz he didn't have the balls to make a move...

...Good thing I'm not like that!

Dude. Like... just... dude. Had a VERY interesting uh... convorsation at lunch today. Seems like the student body of Norwalk High are... keeping busy. Achmhmmm.

Oh, and I like my work :) The people there all act like teenagers, it's awesome.

LMAO - maybe this is wrong, but this picture is just about the funniest fucking thing I've ever seen:



I'm gonna make that my desktop, and if my mom asks I'll tell her he's my new boyfriend.

I got the job!

I started today, and I really like it so far, but I'm deffinately gonna get fired- lmao. I'm taking 2 weeks off in a week, and on top of that, they asked me to come in Saturday morning at 8:30, and I said I could, but I just had to call and say I can't, 'cause I have the PSAT's Saturday morning :/

There were all these crazy-ass dogs that kept escaping and running into the lobby, where I was supposed to be learning how to do the desk job, and the people there were so cool about it!

And... surprise surprise, all my teachers signed my China trip-form-thingy :) I guess this means I should probably go do my English paper now... dammit

I am a binge-blurtyist.

For weeks at a time, my blurty remains dead, motionless, lazy-ly declaring to the world my truest of feelings (as they happened to be 3 weeks ago). And then, at random, all of a sudden, entries! Lots of them! Enough for everybody in the audience to take one home for that special someone!

And then, nothing again. I don't do it onpurpose! Lemme alone!

[ music | Rocko's Modern Life (still) ]



I'm so behind in my fucking work for school, I don't know what I'm gonna fucking do. It's my own fault, and I only blame myself. I wanted to do really well this year, with all that "this is the year colleges look at" bullshit they feed you, but I guess I'm not going to. If I'm behind now, I'm only going to be further behind when I go to China for a week.

Don't get me wrong, I really want to go to China. I know things are gonna be different when I get back, though. Ann's gonna be a mess, taking care of the baby, Max is going to be even more of a mess than he is now. I leave school early on Friday, October 31st (yes, Halloween) and I'll be back in school by November 11th, I think :)

Emma'd Dad on Degrassi kind of reminded me of Max. Maybe Max is retarded.

Nah, too much to hope for.

If going to China means screwing up my grades, and me not getting into as nice a college, than so be it. I probably wont get this chance ever again, and not going... not going would be something I know I would regret.

Sincerely sorry for all of the useless complaining,
Jenna

I don't get it.

How do you start a convorsation with a guy that you've never talked to before, is not in any of your classes, is not friends with any of your friends, and as far as you know, has nothing in common with you?

More importantly, how do you do so without sounding corny, or desparate?

I realized I had my shot the other day, but I could not start a god damn convorsation for the life of me, dammit! I suck, I suck, I suck, I suck, I suck, I suck... at flirting :::cringes:::.

Maybe I should have admired his.... shoes.... or something...

I think I'm in love.... with chemistry. And english. Actually, over all, with the exception of math and civics (which is just an ass-whore in general) my classes are the best I've have in awhile :)

And I'm still grounded, but I got a new cellphone (pretty pretty Martell phone!) that I can use when I'm not around my mom. And I have these SAT class things that fondle hairy balls, but they only last a couple more weeks. I'm gonna drop math if my grades don't get better. And I know none of this is all that interesting, but gimme a break, I'm grounded and I'm rushed cuz I'm not even supposed to be on now~

[ music | Alkaline Trio - Trouble Breathing ]



The last boy I'd suspect sits on a plain wooden chair in a plain white room that has no doors. He watches a generic looking TV set with unwavering attention. He is the only point of interest in the whole room. His eyes are fixed to the screen, even though it hardly changes. Inside the TV is the same scene. A white room, a plain wooden chair, an ordinary looking television, but instead of him in the chair, it's me. He watches me watch my TV. He can't make out what's on my screen, but I can. It's the same scene. Room, chair, TV, and a boy. The boy isn't him. The boy in my TV has no idea I'm watching him, just as I have no idea that I am being watched. I squint with concentration, trying to make out what scene is playing itself out on the television the boy I watch is watching. I can't. But he can. He stares at her with the same interest as I stare at him, and the boy outside of my television stares at me. The girl that the boy I'm watching watches is no doubt staring at a boy in her television set, but considering I can't even see her, I certainly can't see him. For all I know we could be both staring at the same boy, but I doubt it. It hardly ever works like that. But sometimes it does. I know that somewhere down the line a girl glues her eyes to the image of boy, unbeknownst to the fact that he is watching her do so. But it isn't me. But one day it might be.

When I was younger I always thought that the moisture collecting on the outside of my glass on a warm day was the water from the inside of the glass leaking out through tiny microscopic pores in the glass. When I was drinking water, I would swear to you, that slowly, the more water there was on the outside of the glass, the less there would be inside. I was always worried about all my water leaking out through the invisible holes. I would worry that all the water would leave my Kool-Aid, and all I'd have left in my glass was powder. Now I know that the water on the outside of the glass doesn't come from inside, but from the air, and I can explain a lot of things I couldn't explain when I was younger, but it seems like I have even more to worry about now then I did then.

This isn't the real entry I was planning on posting, and the other one took a lot longer to write, but Blurty was being invisible, so this is my filler.

...went to the dermatolgist today because I have little bumps on the outside of my arm that apparently itch. Well, this itching business is news to me, I've never noticed an itch before... but supposedly my mom says she saw me scratching at it, so now I have cream that will stop it from itching.

As I sit here, not listening to Paula Cole, I don't feel like typing my own words anymore....

Don't take candy from strangers.... [09 Aug 2003|06:36pm]
[ mood | indifferent ]
[ music | Incubus - Drive ]

....unless, however, that stranger happens to be me.

I got off work and I was waiting for my ride. It was hot and I was tired, which is the perfect recipe for an iced milk-and-sugar with a little bit of coffee in it :)

So I walked to Dunkin Donuts and I'm standing there, waiting in line, and that Goo Goo Dolls song is playing, ("....you're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be, and I don't wanna go home right now..."), and this black kid behind me is singin along, and he's pretty good too! So I've all got these really good fruit chew things that Courtney gave me (thank you Courtney!!!) and the next thing I know I'm offering him a fruit chew! And then I'm offering the lady behind the counter a fruit chew! And then I'm giving one to the old white guy behind the singing kid! And then I'm just offering them to whoever I meet! And everybody's thanking me!

So then I go outside, and it's POURING rain, and it's not even hot anymore, and I just start laughing, cuz when you're little Sesame Street always tells you not to take candy from strangers.

And I know you're bored with this whole goddamn story by now, but it's not over! Cuz then I walked back to the movie theater and called my dad from the payphone and when I was done, I put all my spare change in the little extra-coin-department (compartment... whatever) for anybody who needs to make a call but has no change!

And then, my mom finally pulls up and I get in the car and we get in a huge fight over something, and then there's that silence, and I realize that my coffee has enough milk in it that I can blow bubbles, so I start blowing bubbles and crackin up and my mom is all bein quiet in the after-arguement-pissy-silence. And then I got home and Gabby got fatter :)

And here is your moment of zen....

I guess if one "good" thing comes out of being grounded, it's that I'm actually doing my summer reading. And my summer essays. And my summer math. "Summer math".... the most un-amusing oxymoron I've ever heard.

I'll be happy if I finish it early, especially the English. I've been having a re-ocurring nightmare that I waited until the last couple days of summer to do all my books and my essays, so I sit down to do it, and all of a sudden the clock speeds up. Everything around me is zooming by, except I'm frozen with this huge book in my lap that's still on "page 4."

And then it's time for school, and all I see is Mr. Simonsen. He sighs and shakes his head. I've failed English. I'm never allowed to take it again. I have to take French for the rest of my life. ::shivers:: ....And you think I'm kidding???

However, in these past few days I have learned something (though, I almost lost the tip of my left-pointer-finger learning it):

-Grounded for 2 weeks
-Have to get offline at 10:00 (unless I work till 10, then I get a 1/2 hour whenever I get off work)
-Have to finish three of my summer reading books in the next 2 weeks (that includes doing those stupid "reading journal" things Mr. Simonsen assigned.... grrr)

Oh bloody hell....


Last night. So it's me, Kelley, Katrina, Martell, and Martell had just got off work so we walk to Starbucks thinking we'll just sit outside, right?

But it's closed, and all the chairs are chained up (or not, as I discovered) and this bitchy Chinese girl and her boyfriend (who was rather cute, if I do say so meself) like, are coming to break in or something (I dunno.... I think they work there....) and were just hanging out outside and I said something stupid about pulling out the chairs cuz they weren't really chained, but I don't remember what, and they gave us a dirty look, so we walked away, and were hanging out outside of Dansk, or wutever the hell it was, and all of a sudden these two cop cars pull up. Oh yes.

It was kinda funny, cuz before we had been talking about how bored the cops in Norwalk were (The infamous case of my Brother and the "Borrowed" Bench), and all of a sudden like the whole squad comes down to "solve" the "case" of the "Great Starbucks Chair Heist"

Now, they're doing the whole Good Cop-Bad Cop, Black Cop-White Cop, Fat Cop-Skinny Cop thing.... you know, that old chestnut ;) And I played it very cool....

Cop: How old are you?
Super-Cool Me: Fifteen.
Cop: When is your birthday?
Super-Cool Me: Twelve. Er.... I mean... Uh....
Cop: (raises eyebrow) ....How old are you???
Not-So-Cool Me: Wait.... Wait.... thinking of the numbers.... Um... Nine, Sixteen, Eighty-Seven. Er... Um.... Never mind. Wait.... September Sixteenth, Nineteen-Eighty-Seven. ....Yeah.
Cop: Nervous?
Absolutely-Shitting-My-Pants-Nervous Me: No.


lmao. It was ok, though :) I mean, weren't stealing anything- we just wanted to sit!!! And those crazy Korean people could have just asked us what we wanted! (but of course, we probably would hauled out or gats and shot them ;) And then, to top it all off, they told the cops were had been "talking amongst ourselves" about stealing them! (well, that mighta been my fault... but it was just a misunderstanding! ask us, goddammit!) lol, all in all it was a good night! :)

Honestly, who steals chairs????
If you're gonna steal something, then damn well make it something worth stealing, yaknowwhaddamean?
