Stinkbugs stink

There's a stinkbug in my room. I don't know where it is now because it was flew in yesterday. Let me give you an excerpt from an e-mail I was sending to my friend.

"It was like, BZZZZZZZT! And I nearly had a heart attack when I saw some big dark thing fly in clumsily from the doorway. And then it thumped against the ceiling and I was like, holy crap what is that thing, and it hit the ceiling again and landed on my mail. And then I cautiously walked over to look at it and realized it was a stinkbug. Which sucks, cause how do I get it out of my room without making it go all crazy-bug on me and spraying stink on my clothes, which will never ever wash out? And I think squashing it causes the same thing."

So yeah. There's no smell yet. I hope it miraculously flew out of my closed window while I was gone. Grrr.
Oh, and here's another list thing for this week.

Strawberries (and 2 new nitrome games)

Yes! No more tests, no more finals, no more anything! Now we do nothing for the rest of our measly 7 days.

I'm having Strawberry Yoplait Yogurt right now. My favorite yogurt flavour is Strawberry, and my favorite yogurt brand is Yoplait. Except I couldn't find any original, so I had got the Whips! kind. Whip is weird. it's very light, looks spongy, and makes a sponge sound when you take a cunk out with your spoon. And no pieces of real strawberry, D:

We're doing perspective drawings in art. I just found out that there are *insert number* perspectives! I thought it was just a plain perspective drawing. That makes me sad. Because we learned about perspectives when we were in elementary. >_> Anyway, perspectives are cool. Especially 6 point perspectives. I'm going to have to try that one day.

New Nitrome game by the way. I think its a minigame. OH MY GOD THERE'S ANOTHER ONE!! I was going to tell you about Cosmic Cannon, but then I checked their homepage and they have another new one. O_o It's called Droplets and looks adorable. I have no idea what it's about. Cosmic Cannon has a bunch of characters from Nitrome's previous games. You blast cannonballs out of a cannon at the bottom of the screen, and each ball has a number. Every time the ball collides with anything, the number goes up. You try to get the highest number possible. Ok, now I'm off to play Droplets. Goodbye! - Droplets sound cute too. Don't they? - Bloop.

No wait. The whole point of this post was to do my new weekly list thing. - From here. Remember?

Vex :: Hex
Relapse :: Time
Twinkle :: Stars
Crawls :: Bug
Optimistic moment :: Dream Bubble
Cage :: Bird
Superwoman :: Mom
Personal :: Belongings
Vapor :: Mist
Grocery store :: Welcome

Welcome is a grocery store by the way. Well, now, bye!
I just finished Droplets, :D All 30 levels! Funny ending. Took 90 minutes? o_o Ah, saddening.
Oh darn. I forgot about my yogurt. It's melted into this weird foamy liquid. Egch. Like melted ice cream.

It's my birthday!


Yay! May 13th. :D My birthday~ in 2009!

Guess what? All my friends were throwing confetti at me all day, I got a whole ton of new stuff that I can use, and I WON A CAR!! :D :D :D

:/ None of that actually happened. It's been a pretty boring day so far. Hmmm...
Anyway, I'm going to learn one song on the viola, :D. I'm more of a piano person, but viola is a string instrument and the one time I tried to play it, it screeched into my ear. So maybe I'll be able to make music out of it soon. ^^

Starbucks rocks. I love their hot chocolate. I don't like coffee though. Too bitter.

I have 86 songs on my playlist. The first 30 have pretty much gotten old. And 86 isn't really that many. I automatically start with one of the last 6 songs. I started my playlist last year, I think.

Anyway, amazingly, some songs haven't gotten old to me yet. Here's a list.

#11 Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson - I listened to that song repeatedly on YouTube for 3 months. And then I got sick of it. But if I happen to come by it on my playlist, I still like to listen to it. Its also #60 because I couldn't find it once and thought it wasn't on my playlist.

#36 Listen to Your Heart by DHT - I just like it.

#51 Miss Invisible by Marie Digby - It's a pretty song. I love turning it up high because it sort of echoes. :) It's a sad song, but it makes you feel content and almost happy. And not in a sadistic way.

#57 Breathe by Michelle Branch - Awesome song. Totally reminds me of sepia. I like the music video too.

#82 Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie - It's fairly new. I first heard it when laurapoet showed me a stop-motion clip on YouTube with this as the song. It's an awesome video, by the way. Go check it out. (keywords: her morning elegance)

And my favorite and newest song at the moment:

#86 Run, Don't Walk by Hey Monday - The voice is awesome. I stole it from Lily's playlist. :)

I love happy songs. I love sad songs too. Don't your favorite songs just make you feel much better?
Mostly, I find songs is through radio stations, stores, and commercials. So the songs are a little limited...Any suggestions? :/

Links and Blogs

I was just looking around and found some interesting blogs and links. -
"Free association is described as a "psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content." Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.

That's an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this excercise, we're just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I'll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind. " - Excerpt from LunaNina

For this week, I got:

  1. Avoid :: Void
  2. Castle :: Turret
  3. Episode :: TV
  4. Limited :: Too
  5. Nail polish :: Purple
  6. Dip :: Cheese
  7. Share :: Manager
  8. Damage :: Car
  9. Improper :: Medieval
  10. Handle :: Bike - A blog with a bunch of creative ideas. I love #29, #23, #21, #15, #12, #11, and #2. There are many good ideas for writers, artists, and meditationists. "Record Your Day" "Create a Wish Bulletin Board" and "Find your Favorite Toy from Childhood and Play With It" are a few of the ideas there. - Nice tutorial. I'm going to try this. - *blubbering* I love this tutorial! Its just 5 pages of pdf, but they went into such depth with the ideas for every aspect of the minibook. They have so many different was of making decorated paper that I never knew were possible. Tea Dye and Handmade Stickers are some cool ideas from the tutorial. Theme Ideas and even Ideas for closing minibooks. - Fabric bow-ties. - Bookmarks from wire. :)

(Good Ideas For Mother's Day. >_> So um...yeah. ) <---

(sahl-min) Salmon (sam-en)

Hello. Well, I added something new under the poll. I made it with HTML, :D.
I just felt like adding something different to it. Also, if you press the button, nothing much happens. It doesn't save or send whatever's in the text box. So no worries. :)

I've been feeling like I need to do a lot of things differently. I'm bored of everything being the same. Same uniform every day, same food, same schedule, same blog stuff, same links, even the same music. So I'm just trying to do more things differently. Just the small things though. Like wearing a ponytail, making changes to my blog, or eat homemade beef jerky in different flavours. I'm probably going to change the radio station to some other random one I've never listened to. Maybe I'll do a different kind of post sometime. Also, about the title. The first word is how I pronounce salmon. The third word is the correct way to say it, according to my friend laurapoet. o_o

I also feel like starting something, such as a sort-of big project. Maybe bind a book using an accordion fold(which I've never done before), or a new blog. I'm definately not stopping this blog if I do though, I just want something to be excited about. And geez, I still don't know how to spell "definately" properly. It just never looks right.

Definately (Definately)
Disappear (Dissapear)

See, the stuff in parentheses is what I usually type, and the word on the left is what I think it's actually spelled. I think when I say new blog, I mean just make a new topic or a new layout of my own.

I actually wanted to make this post hot pink, mostly because I don't like associating myself with pink in any way, even though its a nice color. Also, because hot pink is bright and very different from the color scheme on my blog. Unfortunately, they don't have hot pink on the list of color choices, and I don't feel like changing the html because now I realize that that much hot pink will make you cry. So I settled with boring slate blue, because its a pretty color. :/ :)

Wait, nevermind. I found a salmon color, yay! Now it alternates, since I can't decide which I like more.

And happy cinco de mayo!
