Ruby Rap

Well apparently no one cared about my birthday blog, but that's okay. Sort of. Anyway, I'm listening to Fifth Element at the moment, because I was working on my French homework. But now I'm done so I need to study for my test and stuff. But all I really want to do is eat some more and watch the next episode of Ivanhoe. I forgot how dirty medieval movie people are (except in Timeline, which doesn't have the attempt at accuracy to count).

So, today I bailed on work early because I just couldn't take it. But I stayed for three hours which was pretty impressive since I wanted to leave before I ever got there. I ate some Chunky soup about an hour ago and even though it is supposedly "soup that eats like a meal" I feel like I've just had soup. I think one of the funniest Seinfeld episodes is the one where Jerry gets an Armani suit from Kenny and agrees to take him out to dinner for it. So he takes him out but Kenny only gets the soup and says it doesn't count because it's just soup. It's so funny.

What else was I going to say about soup, I can't remember. Oh yeah, there are these Burger King commercials all about their new "man burger". Well, I'm here to tell you that that man burger doesn't daunt me and I'm going to eat one on Thursday. Dangit, I can eat two six dollar burgers and fries from Carls' Jr--I can eat their fracking man burgers too. I'M HUNGRY TOO. I DON'T EAT "CHICK FOOD."* Quite a few months ago I was declared to be the "bottomless pit" of the family and I aim at upholding my title as long as my metabolism allows me to. Speaking of which, I need to start running again so I can maintain said metabolism. I also need to rustle up some more grub.

*...except when I do...but I eat it in mass quantities, does that count?

Thoughts on 22

So, I think "Magic Works" may just be my favorite song, seeing as how I still play it about five times a day, and it's been out for over six months now. So, only time will tell but that's what preliminary reports are suggesting.

Well, I'm not 22 anymore and it's sad. I don't feel any older, but gosh I am. Next year I'm definitely going to go down a year instead of up. I will respond the effects of Age Gravity, a little studied science.

In celebration of this event I watched two bad movies, but only one of them was good. The first was The Producers, which had a promising premise. On the positive side, Matthew Broderick was very funny, and Will Ferrel was crazy and so funny also. Everything else was either A) Pointless/Unnecessary or B) Dumb or C) Both. Plus, the songs weren't very good. Basically, even if you are inexplicably drawn to glitzy Broadway plays, it's best to be inexplicably drawn to a different one.

Speaking of inexplicable drawings, the second movie was Van Helsing because, dang it, I love that movie. I mean, nothing makes sense! Nothinnnnnng! And yet there is such great eye candy and quotable lines like "Too bad. So sad." Classic! And, dang it, I love that movie but there's really no good reason why.

Let's see, in other news... I found a Goat Boy t-shirt on Hot Topic that was pretty funny. I remember that one episode where David Duchovny was Goat Boy's long-lost brother. I don't remember anything else, but I remember the idea of a goat/man hybrid was really funny.

Oh, in the coolest news item of the night I got this item. It's pretty much the coooolest thing ever because I mean, it's THE JAR. So far I have had the following suggestions for what to put in it: money, cookies, deadly nightshade or salt. I haven't made my decision yet. Ew, Kevin Spacey is on SNL. Anyway, it's a sweetbees jar. Over and out!

At Long Last!

Well, I tried that other quiz but Snape will still not be denied. But luckily my all-important love match quiz turned out better (though Dumbledore was a little too close for comfort). And that mustache is coming off, I tell you.

You scored as Remus Lupin.

'Pretty As A Picture' - Which Artist Would Paint You?

You have the Reynolds girl look. Reynolds girls had the typical British beauty. The eighteenth century British portrait painters would have been attracted by your brilliant complexion and your classical features. Sir Joshua Reynolds loved to paint girls like you in white dresses with blue satin sashes. Reynolds and other portrait painters of his time also portrayed blue eyed, dark-haired girls, and golden-haired ones too, plus the occasional red-head. The following painters would have painted you; Sir Joshua Reynolds and Sir Thomas Lawrence.

I did this quiz three times, trying to get Lupin because I was sooo close, but I just keep getting more and more Snape-ish everytime. I guess it's just destiny. 100 points from Gryffindor!

You scored as Severus Snape. Well you're a tricky one aren't you? Nobody quite has you figured out and you'd probably prefer it stayed that way. That said you are a formidable force by anyone's reckoning, but there is certainly more to you than a frosty exterior and a bitter temper.

Severus Snape


Ron Weasley


Remus Lupin


Harry Potter


Hermione Granger


Ginny Weasley


Draco Malfoy


Sirius Black


Albus Dumbledore


Lord Voldemort

Hurray for Visionaries!

Well, this is was pretty cool. I scored really low on feminity and low on masculinity as well, so I don't know what that makes me. I also had an 'empathy' score of 0, which is pretty funny. But it's good to be a Respectful Visionary.

Fi Fie Fo Fum

I made a super cool binder today with pictures of my siblings' offspring. Unfortunately, one had to be left off, mainly because the printer ran out of color ink and because I don't have any recent pictures. But that's not my fault. So don't say it's my fault, you.

I started school yesterday. Math was going fine for a few minutes until it stopped making sense. I read the book out loud to my room tonight, and I guess it made sense since it didn't really involve any numbers. French is still very exciting. And by exciting I mean only a little irritating.

I scored a bunch of free stuff at work today, including a blue garbage can from Target, a couple of sweaters and a cool dress that doesn't fit me but looks cool anyway. It's pink and Asian-y.

So what is up with ANTM? How many times is Jade going to be in the bottom two and not get cut? I'm ready to protest and do something protest-y. Lost was pretty so-so last night until the last five minutes, but I'm still less intrigued of late. Why aren't there any good shows on? Battlestar won't be new until OCTOBER, Ninja Turtles is only on Saturday mornings (and the season ended three weeks ago). What am I supposed to do with the rest of my time? (Homework, you say? You are silly.)

So, in Harry Potter news, there's not much to report. I was rereading HBP a few weeks ago, and I would like to know the answer to this question: Why did Dumbledore pick that time to make Snape the DADA teacher? He knows the job is jinxed, he knows Snape has a Dark Art-sy past (though I don't think that's the reason why Snape never got it before then. I'm just saying), and blah blah blah. Was it because he couldn't find a new DADA teacher, only a new teacher for a filled position (Slughorn)? I figure it's all part of some master plan cooked up Dumbledore and possibly Snape, but I don't know. Think about it though: if Snape had remained in his position, Harry wouldn't have been in Potions, would have never have gotten that book and, among other things, Book 6 would have been called something else. Here's another question: why was Snape leaving his old school book lying in a cupboard? Did he just forget to move it? Hmm. It does seem reminiscient of another conveniently placed book, namely Riddle's diary. Well. Food for thought, dear readers. Good eats!
