Things to do today:
1. Laundry (hate it)
2. Write 2-3 page paper on Rousseau and Bacon I've been putting off since Friday
3. Record vocals for 3 songs
My day wouldn't be so bad if two of those three things weren't so terrible.
I have become so dependent on my email, I've realized, that if I dont get a new email in over an hour, I literally start to worry that there is something wrong with gmail and that it's not working. I haven't even gotten SPAM. IS THE INTERNET BROKEN?
Okay I'll admit it; I'm in my geography/food class right now and my teacher just said something funny that I am going to share: "Fry bread is a lot like sex. When it's good, it's really good. When it's bad... well it's still pretty good."
(We're talking about the food culture of Pima indians over time or something.)
Haha, now she's talking about how the English rejected the potato in the 16th century, saying it was a food fit only for "an irish man or a clown".
Why were you guys so mean to the poor little potato?
Today I asked for questions on twitter and I am going to answer some of them now.
I'm not sure why this happened, but at least 50% of the questions were about Harry Potter. Alright then, if that's what you want to know...
Q. Favorite Harry Potter character?
A. Draco, hands down. This is a life commitment favorite character type thing. Not many people know this about me, but before there was wizard rock, there was fanfiction (at least in my life). I was as into fanfiction as much I am in YouTube these days, but the point is, I had these two close online friends I met on portkey.org (Crystal and Daniela, aw, geeze I miss them) and we bonded over attempting to rewrite THE ENTIRE SERIES in Draco's POV. Wow. Yeah, that never happened. But we did spend 2-3 years planning it. xD
Q. Are you going to 789? Any of the other 5ags?
A. I am not going to 789, no. Sorry. But, I AM going to the NW Portland gathering in June and I am going to Summer in the City. I have no idea what the other 5AG's plans are. :)
Q. What are you studying when you come to summer school in the UK?
A. I am studying Race and Health, but it's also an "Exploration Seminar" so it's a lot about just going and having a cultural experience and taking field trips and things. Although, eh hem, I kind of plan on sneaking away from my group now and then and having my own "cultural experiences" with the friends I already have over there. ;)
Q. What was the most similar fandom experience you had to Harry Potter before Harry Potter?
A. I've never really had a similar FANDOM experience, but the theatre program at my highschool was the closest comparable experience I have had to the tight-knit community that is Harry Potter. As for fandoms - Anime fanfiction is actually what got me into Harry Potter fanfiction, which is what got me into this fandom.
Q. My other harry potter friends make fun of me cause I'm a slytherin, what should I do to stop them?
A. Well, you're a clever witch/wizard... and since you're a Slytherin, you have little regard for the "no magic when not at school" rule. CURSE THEM.
Q. If you had to describe yourself in 3 words what would they be?
A. NEEDS MOAR WORDS. ;)
Q. How you coping with Alex being dead and what not?
A. Yeah I really wish present!Alex was smart enough not to tell past!Alex to kill himself.. but I did decide to date Nerimon. This is what I signed up for, I guess. xD
Q. Who is your favorite Pokemon and why?
A. It's always been a tie between Flareon and Dragonair. Why? I've always been about the cute ones. Hehe. HEY. At least I didn't say Clefairy (I like Clefairy too).
STILL NO EMAIL, WHAT IS THIS?
Today's Word: Quebef
Slang. The common response to accusations of stolen beef-based foods.
"Did you take my hamburger?" "Quebef?" "Okay, well now I know you did it." -John
