Serious addictions: Reese Pieces, Jolly Ranchers and stupid fucking teen angst. :D (The candy totally cancels out the last one though... I just felt the need to be whiny teenager.)

Anyway... last night I saw Brother Bear... CUTEST MOVIE EVER. I'm downloading the soundtrack.

So last night, me, Kimmy, Kat and Kevin (Kimmys brother) went to Dominick's (Kimmy's moms boyfriend) house before the movie... and we're just driving down the road on our way there and we see a possum dart across the road and we hear BA-BOOM. Kimmy's mom just stopped the car (didn't even pull over - just stopped) and started flipping out... "Oh my god I hit it do you think its dead oh my god I can't believe I hit it," and we kept looking back to see if we could see it lying in the road but it was too dark. So we turned around to look for it... and it wasn't there! We finally look to the side of the road and it was right there and it was moving... but yes, it was amusing.

See, its definitely the little things in life -- like going to the movies on a Monday and having the next day off.

Halloween! [31 Oct 2003|11:27pm]
[ mood | high on life ]

Quick entry because NaNoWriMo starts in 50 minutes. *squee*

Anyway... school was awesome... everyone was either like "haha she's Harry Potter" or "OMG she's Harry Potter!! *glomp*" I loved looking at peoples costumes too. This one kid had an inflatable costume... and he was a shark. It was hilarious. I think I have to hand it to this kid Jon though... he is very, very Jewish and likes to play into the stereotypes... so he was a Jewish thug. He had on a basketball jersey that had "Hebrews" written on it and a Jewish star and on his arm he wrote "J-Unit". And I heard that he was rapping in Hebrew (didn't get to hear it though... *disappointed*) and he goes "CHALLAH!" (As in.. 'holla'... er.. yeah...)

Then I stayed after to do this thing called Safe Halloween... its when all the clubs set up these activities for the kids in the classrooms and stuff... and one club did Ollivanders! And you could make wands! And yes I did go and make one, lol.

So then me, Kimmy and Kat went to Kimmys friends house and we were out trick or treating until like 10:00... it was so much fun. And I have SO much candy. It was just an awesome day.

So today we had this Hispanic Heritage Month assembly... and these people were dancing and halfway through their dance a fight breaks out in the back of the auditorium! They didn't know what to do so they just kept dancing... meanwhile EVERYONE in the auditorium turns around to see whats going on.. and naturally, no one was surprised that people randomly began fighting... *shakes head*

Ohh also, these two guys went on the stage and started rapping in Spanish... now I hate rap with a burning passion but it was so cool...

Hmm, yeah, that's all. Oh no its not! Does anyone want a postcard? I found Long Island postcards and I think they are the coolest things ever... email me (cocozoe123@aol.com) with your address if you want one..

Question for fandom-y people: Does anyone know what "BNF" stands for? I know what it means, but I have no idea what it stands for.

Researching "Rappaccini's Daughter" for an English assignment... [17 Oct 2003|07:39am]
So Rappaccini's Daughter is a short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and it obviously has very strong Puritan undertones because Hawthorne was somewhat obsessive... and I found this great website of literary criticism, and I was reading through it, and one paragraph goes:

The garden is found to have strong sexual connotations and Crews calls attention to the virtually pornographic scene in which Lisabetta leads Giovanni to the entrance to the garden and he presses money into her palm, much like a "john" paying a madame. After being led "along several obscure passages," Giovanni must finally "force himself through the entanglement of a shrub that wreathed its tendrils over the hidden entrance".

*blinks* Oooookay.

Nicholas Sparks annoys me. Yeah, okay, his writing is fine, la de da de da, but call me a judgemental person - its his personality that annoys me.

A little while ago I read an article in People magazine about him... it quoted him as saying that if he never wanted to write another book he wouldn't have to, but that he wanted his kids to know that you need to work. Um, what about actually liking writing? But was that mentioned? Nope, not once.

And then I was just listening to an interview with him... he was all like, "I think I started writing because I wanted to be somebody... I had a steady job, but I wanted to be recognized." Um. Okay. Become a movie star then, Sparks! He's taking up room in the writing world!! What is that?!?! He's littering the bookshelves with Mary Sues and its not like he even mentioned that he LIKES to write...

Yeah, so then he mentioned that with one of his books his editor basically said that it needed to be rewritten... and the lady was like, "Oh my gosh, that must have been so devastating for you." Pffft. He's a pampered little brat. He said that the first novel he tried to publish spent like three years on the best sellers list. Gah. That just is evil.. he's wasting space!

And then he was saying that he didn't really LIKE reading love stories, but that was just what people wanted to read which is why he writes them. Baah. Asshole.

Are you Addicted to the Internet?


Hardcore Junkie (61% - 80%)
While you do get a bit of sleep every night and sometimes leave the house, you spend as much time as you can online. You usually have a browser, chat clients, server consoles, and your email on auto check open at all times. Phone? What's that? You plan your social events by contacting your friends online. Just be careful you don't get a repetitive wrist injury...

The Are you Addicted to the Internet? Quiz at Quiz Me!

SO true.

Anyway, to copy/paste from my livejournal?

Today was amazing. I just... I love consciously fighting for something. It's the greatest feeling in the world... knowing that maybe, just maybe, I'm changing someone's viewpoint... changing THEM (in a positive way). It's... wonderful.

I spoke to Mrs/Ms (not sure which one it is) Katz about joining the Gay/Straight Alliance... since the meetings are on Tuesdays I told her it might be hard for me to go, and she said that they might be switching the day anyway, but I gave her my email address and they're going to keep me informed. Then I spoke to Ms. De Canio about joining A World of Difference - coincidentally, the next meeting for that is on a Tuesday, and the one after that is on Halloween. But I'm going to try to go to both. Honestly, I'm always bitching about equality (mentally at least), it's about time I've joined these clubs! Then Mr. Goldberg said that he could get me the fax numbers for Steve Israel, Charles Schumer and Hillary Clinton because they would never get around to reading the emails I sent.

But the best part was when I was talking to Lamar about it and showing him some of the papers.. and he goes, "Oh, I already got those." I almost died. I asked from who but he said "some guy" and he said it wasn't Jon Swengler... ohmygod! People are SUPPORTING this.. .they are TALKING about it, they are advertising it. I was ecstatic. I am ecstatic.

This is so important to me now, I want to do more stuff but I don't know what. Because yes, this is majorly about homosexual rights and gay marriage and such... but it's also because Bush is intruding on our rights as citizens... he is SAYING how a family should be run. Um... hello? Maybe it's just because I'm doing too much History homework and that my mind has been crammed with Absolutism... but does anyone else see the parallels? It's not necessarily that he CAN be a totalitarian leader, because he can't, theres still Congress and the Supreme Court, it's that he obviously wants to be, and he's doing all these tiny little shrewd things to get around the whole seperation of powers deal. And that scares me.

Okay people. I need your help.

Two my friends and I are going to be Harry Potter characters for Halloween. My friend wants to buy the costumes, but they are all kids costumes, not to mention like fifty dollars. Which we do not have. So have any of you dressed up as Harry Potter? And WHAT did you do for your costume?

Umm... I don't know WHAT that last entry was. I definitely didn't type it though.

I've been so irresponsible the last few days... "Oh, an essay due tomorrow? No big deal I can do it tonight." "Math homework? Who cares? Who cares that I don't understand it anyway and will fail the Regents?" And... I hate being like that. But every time I start doing my homework, its like, "Well I guess I can just reply to this or read this... it'll only take five minutes." And the next thing I know its 10:30.

I've always prided myself on being responsible. But I'm not. Even in RPing - I have so many "overdue" bios and such... and I know it won't take me that long to do, but there's always something else.

And with school, sure, all of my grades have been good thus far, but they're going to drop soon. I know they will. Because I always get the report card for the first quarter, and I see my great grades, and then I put less effort into it, because I think, "I'm smart enough, I don't need to spend this much time studying."

Even right now... I should be doing my homework. I have a lot. And I'm going to be out for an hour or two tonight. But I'm sitting here typing up a Blurty entry.

*sigh* It shouldn't be this hard. I should just think, "Okay Rachel do this." But I have no self discipline.
