I stayed an hour after school to get ahead in my titration (which has taken 6 hours, but I'll probably take another 3 to finish it). When I get back, my parents are watching Halloween... It was-- interesting... Funny how I don't recognize half the movies that I see a small clip of, but when it's a good one I happen to know (examples: A Shot in the Dark, Jaws, The Princess Bride), they automatically assume I've watched way too many movies.

Halloween is superb, easily one of my favourite movies of all time.

I just noticed the newest "member", which is obviously a spambot, is called "Tit"!

I've gotten two offers of acceptance into the University of Waterloo. But I'm also applying for the conditional acceptance into Pharmacy for high school students, so I'm still holding my breath...

I had dressed as Professor Plum for my Writer's Craft presentation that I did on Tuesday. The presentation itself was about Fan-fiction. My partner, she spoke about the history and terms whereas I talked about the analytical implications behind the genre.

I dressed as Plum because I was presenting a bit of my own Clue fanfiction to the class. Then I discussed how the obsession with the subject matter is what gives the drive to create these fantasy stories for a small audience.

The costume worked out nicely. I wore this dark blue pinstripe blazer and pants with a white collared shirt. The shirt had "blood stains" from another performance, but it only added to the costume itself. I also sported a red and blue bow-tie and a pair of horn-rimmed glasses. My hair had been sickeningly gelled back, and I popped a copper hash pipe in my mouth for extra effect. At times, I would fiddle with the lead pipe and pistol during the lecture. Also neat was that there was a pair of scissors on the teachers desk which I filched and made poking motions to the class with.

If I must show you pictures, it would mean to dress up in the costume again. Not saying that's a bad thing though...

Cool! Reminds me of yesterday when I had to show my "Speaking and Listening" presentation of Cluedo to these three other guys.

Still, it must have been very fun to be Plum holding a lead pipe lol. Nothing could possibly top that.

Did anyone else experience the Buy/Sell/Trade glitch? It would show a gold page that there is a new post but to the right of the screen there is only the time but not the name of the author. Infact there is no new messgae.

J.D. Salinger is dead, and it's probably awful of me to think this (and so on and so forth), but I can't help thinking "It's about time."

My computer recently crashed. We sent it in, but there's a good chance that we have no more pictures, music, Word files, etc. Basically, this could really really really suck.

That's my fault. Someone posted a link to an ebay site and I clicked to delete the user thinking it was spam before realizing it wasn't. I later approved the post but somehow it all got messed up.

On the bright side, I did buy the item he listed. :) A Clue casino chip. Did anybody else here bid on that? It was bid up to $13.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

I hear that he had around 15 unpublished manuscripts in his safe. I wonder if they will see the light of day now.

Yuck. I had my whole right toe nail removed. All of it. It's been years and alll that has grown back is this ugly, deformed lump that bears little resemblance to a nail.


Now my left nail is turning yellow and causing me trouble.

@CluedoKid, ouch, that sounds painful. Hopefully the other toe won't be that severe.

Well I just got back. It wasn't exactly a hospital as much as a foot specialist. They stuck needles in it, numbed it, and the tightened bands around my toe so the flow of blood would decrease. (i had my face burried in a magazine because I was a little nervous to watch) All in all it felt like your foot fell asleep and someone was poking it with their finger. I never got to see the end result because the wrapped it in gauze. They said that the numbness will wear out in about 2-3 hours and when it does it will be a giant BANG of pain but I should have my prescription from Walgreen's by then (it only takes fifteen minutes to fill). Halfway in the car between walgreens and the doctors. BANG! I scream so loud. It felt like screws were being driven under my toe nail. oh God! I'm on the pain pills now and a little out of it, but thank God the perscription only took ten minutes to fill.

Ooh and on top of that, my mom is too lazy to cook so we are having fast food. How much can one take in a day??
