And from then on it was turpentine and matches.

From then on it was cold Campbell's from the can
And they were just two jerks playing with matches
Cause that's all they knew how to play
Thanks a bunch Natalie!! :D :D :D.
Okay, so like everyone that follows my blog has been tagged, or there aren't 10 people who have not. But if anyone wants to steal this and do it themselves, feel free to. As long as you're a reader of mine, I dubb you awesome on some level ;). Soo.. now I must give 10 facts about me, let's do this.

1). My hair is naturally this curly. Okay, maybe that's not entirely interesting, but I get asked it a lot :P. I used to hate my hair, and straighten it relentlessly. Now I've grown to accept my "lion's mane", as Amanda lovingly refers to it as.

2). I really want to learn how to play Dungeons and Dragons! Nerdy, nerdy, nerdy, but I definitely want to give it a try. One of my friends, Derek, actually helped me create my own character. I was an Eladrin wizard, it was awesome. But I still haven't begun to play.

3). Cheese is like, my favorite food group. Except I hate foot and goat cheeses. Those taste like mold, I don't care how fancy of a delicacy they are :P. Oh and I really enjoy pigging out on Chinese food.

4). I plan on getting a tattoo when I'm of age. Right now I don't have anything picked out for certain, and I won't get one unless I know I'm sure about it. I'm considering something olive related, like maybe a branch with them dangling, because I've always had this nickname, so it'd have meaning. Also, Julie, Amanda, and I want to get something matching so that's a possibility. If I stumble across a quote that really enthralls me, and I feel it's something I could live by, then maybe I would put that somewhere, in fancy script.

5). I think it would be really badass and cool to have the chance to drive a monster truck. My favorite one used to be Monster Mutt, then it disappeared. Tom says it's because it was the worst one out there, but I always thought it was cool, even if it lost the races.

6). I don't read enough. It's depressing, I wish I could freeze time and be able to read all of the things I want to, then hit play when I feel like paying attention to the rest of my wordly obligations.

7). I'm agnostic, leaning more towards atheist. Except I don't like to call myself one, because they're given a bad rep. I'm tolerant of everyone's beliefs, and I'm certainly more than willing to befriend anyone despite what their views are, because I don't see religion or non-religion as that high of importance, to where it can decide who you associate with. I'll admit that I don't know what happens after life, that's why I can't believe.

8). I want to visit oddball places. Switzerland, Holland, Iceland, ect.

9). I have never crowdsurfed. I'm waiting for a good opportunity :).

10). Basically it's physically impossible for me to frown. I smile like, all of the time. If I'm not smiling, my face is blank or indifferent. It's definitely a rare occasion for me to look truly angry.

LIFE. Has been good. :)

I survived the first week of school, engaging in #2 now, and it's not so bad. I love having two studyhalls at the end of the day, Amanda, Derek and I just hang out in the art room every day for them. I need to start bringing my own lunch though. Answers Please starts this week, I'm super excited for that. Senior photos are due soon, when I choose the one I want, or if I need help deciding, I'll post it on here for you guys :). On Friday we didn't have practice, so I took the opportunity to spend time with my friends. Julie, John, Amanda and I went to town, hitting up the library, the mall, and last but not least---the petstore. I fell in love.

It was the cutest thing. All of the other puppies were up against the little fence, fighting for attention, but that raggamuffin was over in the farthest corner, facing the wall. Eventually it turned to face me, wood shavings stuck in its little dog mustache. When another puppy tried to paw at him and play, he just sat there, all antisocial, I thought it was the funniest thing. I wanted to take it home sso badly.

In other excitement, we surprised Zack after work and brought him to Chinatown for dinner Saturday night. That was fun :), he deserved it after all of the effort he put into my birthday. This Friday we're going to see Craig Owens together in concert, I can't wait. Lately the specials on National Geographic suck me in. Julie and John came over to watch The Girl Who Cries Blood wit h me last night, which was interesting but annoying, since they never came to a conclusion by the end of the show. Then I watched another one about a girl in India who is sixteen years old and only 23 inches tall. It's insane.

Well, now I realize that I'm just rambling. Have a great week folks ;P.
I'll try to keep up with this better :).

you are welcome :) i love your hair, it's so prettyful! i want to get a tattoo too, but a very small one. like a star or something on my wrist or ankle... i doubt my parents would go for that, but TOO BAD! :P driving a monster truck would be pretty badass :D and i have no idea whether i'm agnostic, atheist, somewhere in between... i'm just something along those lines i suppose...

OH MY GOSH. that puppy is unbelievably adorable! it's just a little fluffball of cuteness :D if you would have gotten him, ragamuffin would be the PERFECT name! passing the buck along to your friend was a very nice thing to do :) and i'm sure the concert will be a blast! that'd be so weird if i was only 23 inches tall.... really weird....

have a fabulous rest of the week! :)

Love this post...ugh, I've been of age to get a tattoo for 3 years now and still haven't decided what I want to get/where I would get it... possibly because my aunt got one on her lower hip when she was younger and it's all stretched out now from when she had kids = /
And cheese is absolutelyyy my favorite food group too...I could never be a vegan!
I think it's lovely that you're a big smiler...the world needs more positive people and attitudes!
And those puppies? Omgosh, adorable! =)
Your blog is fabulous, my dear. I hope you have a wonderful remainder of you week!

Nice facts. I love your hair! I've decided on a tattoo but its being slow but an olive branch would look really cool depending where you put it.

That puppy is so damned cute!! *huggles*

Have fun at the concert xx

Haha, some of my guy friends are in D&D and I may be joining... Cheese is my favorite food. I eat it every day. Every other food that I consider to be one of my favorites also involves cheese... Yay for last block study halls! That puppy is ADORABLE. Have a great weekend! :)

It was one of those desk fan things and it came all in little pieces in the box. That's what I meant. There were little screws everywhere and shizzle. I got stressed the first time so my uncle said he'd drive the thirty minutes to help me but then I was that bored, I sat for a whole two hours grumbling to myself as I concentrated.Funny stuff.

And I get to hit the clubs tonight ;)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend xx
