Spongebob. What Else is There to Say?

Well, Spongebob is pretty much amazing, I just thought you all should know that. Spongebob Squarepants is one of my favorite shows of all time, and I always get a laugh out of that show. This poster actually hung in my dorm room all year last year, but I've now passed it onto my siblings so they can use it for inspiration in their lives. Let me give you some examples of quotes that always bring a smile to my face:
I can't see my forehead! -Patrick
We'd better do what he says. He knows how to grow food. -Patrick
You can't fool me! I listen to public radio. -Squidward
Squidward: "Spongebob, I actually DO like you!"
Spongebob: "Squidward I used your clarinet to unclog my toilet!"
People talk loud when they want to sound smart, right? -Squidward
You know, if I were to die right now in some sort of fiery explosion due to the carelessness of a friend.....well, that would just be ok.
I know a lot about head injuries...belieeeeeeve me! -Patrick
I wumbo, you wumbo, he she wumbo, wumboing, wumbology, the study of's first grade, Spongebob! -Patrick
Squidward: Has anyone ever played an instrument before?
Patrick: Is mayonnaise an instrument?
So there you go, funny guy, that Spongebob Squarepants. Go and watch this video to behold a part of one of the best episodes of Spongebob: the Band Geek episode. This is like one of my favorite songs to, and if any of you know who it's by please let me know. Anywho, enjoy, and may Spongebob fill your soul.

You Want Me to What?!

Do you ever feel like sometimes there are those teachers that just want to make you miserable? Yeah, me too. But I have a sort of self-righteous teacher for my fiction writing class. The class has been annoying up to this point, but I've had fun with it laughing with my classmates when she says something stupid. I mean, I have to take the class if I want to get a degree in Creative Writing. Well whenever we write stories if she doesn't like the way it is we've got to change it. She even docked me points on my last story because she didn't like the title. The funny thing is that she TOLD ME to change it to that title to what it was because she didn't like the one that I'd chosen. Yeah, ironic. Anywho, the way she teaches class and the way she looks really reminds me of Professor Trelawney off of Harry Potter, so let me provide you with a good visual of her:

Anywho, so we turned in our second story on Monday this week, the last one we'll have to turn in this semester. Anywho, she wanted our stories to be primarily based on research. So I thought it would be fun to see if I could write a good horror story so I wrote a story about a Ted Bundy wannabe and I thought it was pretty good. So I researched him and all that stuff and it took me 6 hours to write my 8-page story. So anywho, I walk into class yesterday (Wednesday) and Professor Stark walks in and tells us that our stories were full of stupid cliches. Then she took a line from everyone stories and put them up on the overhead and had us all read them and said things like, "Be original, this is crap! I've heard it all before, this is worthless! This one I put lots of cliches that
you had but I also put some spelling errors up there because I thought that was sort of ridiculous." So she's basically telling us we're no good, and most of us are aspiring to become writers. So after all of that, she's like, "I need to see all of group five (which I'm in) and a few other people (then she listed off the names)." So I went up to her after class and she's like, "Alisa, your story is really good so don't burn it or anything, but it's what I would consider genre fiction so it doesn't fulfill our purpose for this class. Now if there was a genre fiction contest I would enter that one, but the characters are flat and stuff and it's cliche so you need to write a new story.

I was pretty shocked, and really mad. So I asked if maybe I framed it differently if that would work and she said, "No I want you to completely do a new story. You have until next Wednesday." So yeah, I wanted to cry 'cause I'd spend 6 hours on that stupid paper all together. So I thought about writing a story about a student that really hates her professor because she's making her redo an assignment, but I decided against that in the end for obvious reasons. Anywho, so I spent about 4-5 hours writing a new 8-page paper yesterday and was pretty annoying. So yeah, this entry is in red 'cause I was pretty furious about it.

So anywho, blue is my favorite color, so I'll end in this color. Quite the contrast. It reminds me of those really good blue popsicles that w
e get all the time in the summer.

I personally preferred the rootbeer ones but blue is fine too I suppose. Anywho, so today I also totally fell on some ice while I was texting a friend of mine. Yeah, I have nice bruises to prove it. Then about 5 minutes later I hear this "FOUR!" and I looked up and a frisbie was about a foot away from my face and I dodged it just in time. Yay for funny accidents!

Easter Egg Hunt: War of Candy

Well, it's that time again: Easter time. Okay, so Easter was yesterday, I understand that, but I didn't have time to type it yesterday.
So I don't know about the rest of you, but my family takes Easter egg hunts pretty darn seriously. I'm not joking when I say it' s a war. Everyone is very protective of their Easter eggs, especially the one we have every year at my grandparents' house because money is involved. Now, a few years ago there were enough youngsters where the little kids went first for about one minute (which let me tell you, it seems like an eternity to us older kids), then the older kids were allowed out to search for the eggs. But this year the youngest child to hunt for eggs was my sister, Annie, and she's 8 years old. The next ones up were 12, so my grandparents decided to let us all go at once.
Never before has so much adrenaline surged through my veins. My cousins, the boys who are all younger and bigger than me, taunted me, telling me they would get to the eggs sooner than I would, and then they'd speed off in front of me. My competitive side took over and, no longer caring if i looked like an idiot, I ran from egg to egg, not caring how easy or hard they were to get. If someone saw an egg I raced in that direction to try to get the egg before them. The English have their "hunt" of foxes and other such animals, but the Easter egg hunt is my "hunt." Maybe next year I'll rent some dogs that have skills in sniffing out Easter eggs. Yes that will be fantastic!
Ok, so the hunt only lasted about 5 minutes tops and then everyone headed inside. I didn't get as many eggs as I wanted but I did get $6 and lots of candy! But even after you get your candy in a bag and all that the war is still not over. It's a well-known fact in our family that you've got to hold on to your Easter candy or it'll be gone before you know it. You can be sure that I always had an eye on my candy. I have many cousins who wouldn't hesitate one second to eat my candy. Unfortunately, I took my eye off of my candy for just a few minutes and came back to find that all of my favorite candies had been eaten by my cousin. CURSES! Maybe next year I'll learn.
That was Saturday. Even on Sunday my family was eager for hunting the Easter eggs the Easter bunny had left. So when we came downstairs, Annie had just picked up eggs she had seen on her way downstairs and already had about 15 eggs in her basket. We kept calling her a cheater and stuff, but my dad told us not to make such a big deal out of it. If he only knew how important that candy was to us, he'd understand why we reacted the way we did. Everyone knows that the candy the Easter bunny leaves is always the best candy of the year. But everything turned out alright. I got The Cat in the Hat (the cartoon) and Green Eggs and Ham (including The Sneetches, The Zax, and Grinch Night. Also a cartoon). Plus lots of candy.
Anywho, I hope you all had a great Easter! Mine was great!

Christian Bale is so good looking!

Christian Bale is one of the best looking actors on the face of the earth, and one of my favorites right now. I mean I look at him and sometimes I just get sick 'cause he's so good looking! Ha ha, just kidding. Anywho, just thought I'd put his picture up. Have fun admiring him, he's just so good looking. I'm sorry, I can't get over it....that and I felt like I needed another picture on my page ha ha.

Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Well I'm just sitting here at work and I'm overly excited that EASTER IS COMING!!! First of all one of my favoritest cousins is coming to sleepover at my house and doing the Easter egg hunt and everything. It will be fantastic!

So with Easter coming up, my mind is prone to wander back to the days of my childhood. Have any of you seen the movie Peter Cottontail? Um if you haven't you're a loser and you're childhood is greatly lacking in fun and joy. It's made by those people that do those Santa Claus is Coming to Town and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer movies (if you haven't seen those I don't know how you got through life and lived this long). Anywho, it's pretty much one of the best movies ever. The main song goes, "Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail, hippity hoppity Easter's on it's way! Gifts for every girl and boy, baskets full of Easter joy....something....something....happy Easter DAY!!!!" Yeah, it's a good one. I get tears in my eyes just thinking about it. Anywho, I'm going home on Friday and I can guarantee that I will be watching that movie this weekend. It brings on the Easter spirit. "In Spring the Easter Bunny never SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPS!" Thank you, thank you! If you could really hear my voice singing that I'm pretty sure you would be crying.

Random Picture Day

Well, it's day 2 of my new blog, and I was just trying to look through some of my pictures so that I could have some sort of visual on my page and this is what I found! Lots of people ask if that is my eye. The answer is no, but my eyes are just as cool and beautiful as the one in the picture. *wink* If you look closely you can see the planets and stuff in the eye. Anywho, it's a pretty awesome picture, and I thought someone might want to take a look at it.

Also, there was a time in my life where I just loved pictures of roses and pictures of roses so here's one of my favorites. I was always looking for blue roses too because I'd heard that they existed but I've never seen one. But yeah, I really like dark blue and stuff, it's my favorite color. Plus this picture is pretty much awesome so that's another reason why I decided to post it. I'll try to get some pictures of me up there but all of the pictures that I have of me are actually at home, so you're going to have to wait until spring break. HA! Anywho, enjoy the pictures, and have a great day!

Well this is fun! Hello everyone! This is my first blog ever in the history of the universe, so all of you reading this are witnessing a once in a lifetime opportunity. Now pat yourselves on the back! Anywho, this probably won't say much, but I figured I had to post something! Today has been relatively awesome except for the fact that it's snowing again. I was talking to my roommate earlier about the snow and it reminds me of this kid that I really don't like. I said, "This snow reminds me of Lecates. Both he and the snow don't realize when they're not wanted!" Yeah that was a pretty awesome moment for me in my life today. Anywho, I look forward to posting many other strange and amusing stories. :)
