Keane

Wow. Dale put a song on the internet for me to listen to called "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane. I really liked the song so I went to Keane's site and listened to some sample music and I love it. Now I can't rest until I've got one of their CDs. He put another song on there called "Let Go" by Frou Frou but it won't work for me. I need to get on the ball and start finding good bands and telling Dale and Elden about them for a change. Anyway, I really liked the song.

Stained Glass



Here are a couple of pictures I took of some stained glass windows in a cathedral in Prague. Gorgeous, huh? The walls are lined with them and we were there at just the right time of day. It was so pretty.

This is purely for my own enjoyment.

Ah, Homestar Runner, why aren't you funny anymore?

Funny Girl

I have a hilarious friend named Natalie who sent me an email a long time ago that thorougly amused me. In case you're not sure what she's talking about, in our school yearbook they allow people to buy a space in the back and put pictures and write notes and dedicate it to people. Some people put pictures of themselves with their two best friends or something like that, and a lot of the time they surround the picture with inside jokes that no one gets except for them. The funny thing is, everyone reads them anyway. So, here's what Natalie said about this:

Have you looked at the back of the yearbooks at GHS? They have pages for the
Seniors that have pictures of groups of friends and stuff. It's
super ridiculous because people always write all their inside jokes
around the pictures and it makes no sense!! It makes me laugh...
It's like

Hot dogs in water~My SUV smells~Brickabracka~Thinky time! LOL~Shoes that are too small for you! Remember that?~ The new pencils~Alissa's
brother's ear infection! HA!~ Mickey Mouse is hot~hammer and
screws~Oops a DAISY!~Chess camp accident" Etc, etc, etc!

It just makes no sense to anyone except the people involved. It
would be fun to just make up inside jokes with yourself and put them
in the yearbook. I used to have inside jokes with myself. I would
see something that made me laugh and then I would be talking to
someone and say that in a very non-understandable way so that I
would be laughing and they would be like, "Um, sure, Natalie."

(This girl makes me laugh.)

Disclaimer

I would like to apologize in advance for any ridiculous things that may find their way into my blog. I am the most dramatic by far of all five of my siblings, and this particular character flaw of mine may give rise to certain undesirable gelastic ramblings. (Gelastic is NOT a dirty word.) I hope you enjoy it! Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.

I would like to inform my law student of a brother that I am aware I used the term "disclaimer" incorrectly. As my mother once said, "You have to watch what you say when you have an english major or law student in the family." We have both. In one family member.
