  1. I Made A Difference So Can You Vote Ohio Secretary of State (or so my sticker says)

    I'm old, I'm old! Well, okay, maybe not that old. But my age sounds older than I feel. But I had a fun birthday, better than the last three years. (My 19th birthday my family was on vacation--can you say road trip?--and currently in LA for the special occasion. It wasn't a bad birthday, exactly, it was just...strange, being away from home, living in a hotel (or more accurately, our Suburban) on my birthday. The next year I was home, but I was about the only one home for it--my older sis...
  2. Aww, Ahh & Other Exclamations

    So. We gained an addition to the family today. A new puppy. Part of me is happy and all "aww, how cute", and part of me is "ahhh! not another one! Now we have to go through all the house training again!" In other words, I have mixed feelings about the little mite. Hehe. But she is really cute, and her face is just darling. She's half German shepherd and half Bernese mountain dog, so she's gonna get pretty big (which is the main reason my mom got her--my family likes big dogs), and I think,...
  3. Hello Hello Kitty Kitty

    Hakuna Matata. What a wonderful phrase. No worries, mate. ;) Erm. Nothing much to report from my end. I've been wasting way too much of my time online the last few days, and hardly writing at all. *scolds herself* Ohmygoodness, kittens are sooooooo cute! Even when they maul you. ^_^ Especially when they purr, and they have big blue eyes, and the cutest little faces, and the prettiest Siamese markings....heehee. I've decided that, if I ever have a cat again, I'm going to name it...
  4. A Quick Succession Of Busy Nothings

    "Life seems nothing more than a quick succession of busy nothings." I stole that from Mansfield Park, but it's a pretty apt description of my life right now. I hate cough syrup. I hate coughing more. I like sleep. :yawn:
  5. No Small Scandal

    I finished reading Pride & Prejudice yesterday. Yay! It was very good. Very similar to the A&E movie, but more expanded. Or something. Oh, my sisters and I went to a used book sale at the fairgrounds yesterday, and I bought three books for a total of six bucks: Persuasion, by Jane Austen; The Last Sin-Eater, by Francine Rivers; and The Thief, by Megan Whalen Turner. :) My younger sister found this little book, called Dottie Dimple Stays Home. Anyway, it was published in 1869, and on the...
  6. A Few Random Profound Thoughts (Which I Forgot)

    I'm about two-thirds of the way through reading Pride & Prejudice. :cool: Lizzy just ran into Darcy at Pemberley. Heehee. It's autumn now! Yay! (Totally my favorite season. ;)) I watch too much TV. I watched the Emmys on Sunday with my mom and older sister, and it gave me a few random profound thoughts, but of course I forgot them. So I can only comment on having watched the Emmys. Which, honestly, were kind of boring. If it hadn't been for the fact that I didn't really have anything...
  7. Thoughts On The Prides & Prejudices

    Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day! Arrgh. ^_^ Yeah, I'm not much of a pirate impersonator, what can I say? Well, I finally finished watching* the Keira Knightley Pride & Prejudice, so now I will remark upon my opinions on the two versions. Because I'm weird. (But that has already been long established, so I won't say another word about it.) First of all, in terms of overall story and plot lines and screenplay and all that, I prefer the longer A&E version better. Keira Knightley's one...
  8. I Can't Sing Anymore...

    Update: ('cuz I'm...er, well, an odd person in need of sleep but unwilling to climb into bed and go visit slumberland) What I said about singing a couple hours ago? So not true anymore. I can talk, but barely, and in a hoarse voice that sounds more like it comes from a frog than a human. Ehh. I'm not a loquacious person--ask anyone who knows me--but it never ceases to astonish me how much I do talk when I suddenly can't, or at least not comfortably. Okay, so, I went downstairs and watched...
  9. "It Is A Truth Universally Known..."

    I watched Pride & Prejudice today, the A&E horrendously-long one with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. :) Actually, I gathered up all our Jane Austen DVDs and have them on my desk now, ready to watch. I'm debating what to watch tomorrow--Mansfield Park, Emma, Sense & Sensibility, or the Keira Knightley P&P. In a way, I kind of want to watch the latter, and compare the two versions, since while I've seen both of them more than once (heh, more than twice, thrice, and possibly even more), I've...
  10. Good News & Bad

    Yay me! I *finally* finished chapter 1 of the (more or less) third draft. Woo-hoo! Heehee. In less good news, my throat just started hurting maybe fifteen or twenty minutes ago. This is not a good sign. (Of course, when is a sore throat a good sign?) My sister’s had a nasty cold and been miserable for the last several days, and I think my one brother caught it a day or two ago. So…I am thus stricken as well. Joys. I anticipate the coming days of stuffy/runny nose, coughing, congestion, and...
  11. Third Time's The Charm

    Third time's the charm, right (or so the saying goes)? Well, I started a blog (a *real* one, as opposed to this one, which, you know, is just fake. Like, there's nothing at all even remotely real about it. It's all in my imagination…or something *snickers*) today/last night. It's my third attempt at blogging in the big wide world of blogging. The first two times I deleted the blogs after about a week or two, tops. Which I may end up doing with this one, as well, but who knows. Maybe I'll...
  12. Growing On Me...

    My sister introduced me to two new CDs a couple days ago. Brooke Fraser Albertine and Francesca Battistelli My Paper Heart. Yay! New Christian singers that I like! (It's been a while…Britt Nicole is, I think, my most recent, er, acquirement, and it was over a year ago when I first heard her.) Of course, with each CD it took me a couple listens-through to decide I really did like them. :) Francesca's (weird, I just realized that their initials are like backwards from each other) it was mostly...
  13. Fair Fries & Continuity

    The fair ends tomorrow--yippee! ^_^ I can say that only 'cuz I went yesterday and got some fair fries and ice cream--the whole point of going to the fair, in my opinion. The food. ;) Heehee. Watched Psych earlier. Sooo funny. Though I have to say, I preferred my prior ignorant state of women's roller derby. There are just some things....*shakes head* Yeah. Call me small-minded, but I just don't get it. ^_^ Well, I'm going to start Draft #4 of my story soon--I was thinking, randomly,...
  14. I Smell Like Goat...But I'm Happy Anyway

    Okay, three things I want to jot down really fast: 1) I had to milk goats tonight. :eek: Actually, though, it wasn't as traumatic as I feared it would be (my fear was based on past milking experiences...let me just say, they weren't good ones), though I think I still smell like goat, even though I just took a shower. Ehh. The number one icky thing about goats--their smell. We save money, I guess, by having milk goats--it costs less to feed them than it would to buy milk for all of us (we...
  15. Sibling Rivalry To The Extreme

    I've been a naughty girl today, and have procrastinated from writing all day. *tsks* As soon as I'm done with this, I shall get to it. I promise. So. I started reading about Joseph today. (Joseph as in Jacob's son, coat of many colors, Pharoah's righthand guy, etc.) It made me want to read Angela Hunt's one series about him...but that's beside the point. Not that I necessarily have a point. I'm just rambling. But I did notice something that struck me as a little...odd, I guess. When...
