I wouldn’t normally devote a whole entire post to a movie, but this is such an incredibly amazing movie that I thought I would. The reason I was going to blog about something different is that I’m actually sitting on the stage at graduation practice. We’re waiting for the people that are only having commencement practice because the graduates practice later today. Anyway, I watched this movie; “Donnie Darko” while I was in California with a friend and Max, then we watched it again later with another friend and benjamin. It’s a pretty old movie and was actually made in 2001 but set in like 1987 or something like that. The movie has a ton of curse words, but other than that it’s the most awesome movie I’ve ever seen. If you’ve seen the village, it’s something like that in the sense that it looks like a freaky bad movie but it’s actually friggin sweet. If you ask me what type of genre it is, I can’t actually tell you because it’s like every genre. It appears to be a horror movie, but really I can’t think of a genre that doesn’t apply. It’s even comedic. Although this is such a good movie I wouldn’t recommend anyone under 17 seeing it for the most part.
Well, I need to wrap this post up so….

Till next post.

Well, that was like the sweetest vacation I’ve had all year. Oh yeah, it was the only one. Well, it was great. One fun thing we did was go to this cool place called galco’s. It’s a big soda shop that sells tons of weird soda’s you’ve never heard of. Today I had one that I got there. It was called birch beer, tasted like root beer. Sarah was convinced it was beer, even though I told her it’s like root beer is not really beer.
Anyway, today we’ve been driving since like 7 this morning. I can’t believe how much I slept today in the car, I just could keep awake after lunch. It’s cool though, I picked up an adapter that allows me to plug in my computer in the car, and that’s fun. Right now I’m sitting in a tent next to a plugin place at a KOA. It’s a really nice place. We’re in Utah now. Not much else I want to talk about now, except my graduation and the afterwards party is in a few days and you all better be there!!
That reminds me I should send Tony one of those announcement thingys.

Till next post.

I really need to update the links. I’ll have to get to that. You guys can bug me to do it till I do. So, anyway. I’m just packing and getting ready to go. Tomorrow night our homeschool group has a talent show. Our choir is doing at least two songs for it. I saw the talent show last year and it was really good. I’m pretty happy though because this time I’m gonna bring Max and Sergey. That’ll be fun. I think our choir is really great, so it’ll be fun to get to finally show someone 🙂

Till next post.

PS I’m gonna have to start posting a whole lot more. I have so many quotes for the end of the blog! 😀

It’s interesting, I’m always coming up with these great ideas for blogging, ideas that are really deep and would make great reading material. But, your blog never has anything that deep. You say.
That, is unfortunately very very true. The problem is when I think of these things. I’m always thinking of them while I’m in bed or driving (usually driving). I guess it’s murphy’s law, but whenever I think of something great to talk about I can’t blog it, or write it down or anything. Anyway, I figured sometime I’m going to just have to lay on my bed and stare at the ceiling till I come up with something real cool to post.
Well, enough of this and that, here’s a little update info about what’s going on in my life. I’m going to California next week for about a week and a half for our yearly field conference, where all the missionaries to the deaf from BMW get together to have some meetings. It’s fun because I get to see friends, and it’s usually (unfortunately because I’d like another vacation) the closest thing to a vacation we get. Anyway, all that to say why I’ll be offline or otherwise busied most the time. Also, (did you know our youth leader really likes that word; “also”. If you pay attention he says it a whole bunch but anyway) I’m gonna have to plant the grass armchair after my trip since I’ll have to water it and keep it from getting rained on and waterlogged. It should take about 10 days to sprout, so I’ll do that when I get home.

One more thing to mention, I’m trying to get an Electric Typerwriter website going, it’s a little hard because I’ve forgotten nearly all the stuff I knew (which wasn’t very much in the first place) about website making. So I’m trying to work a little with Disiance to try and get one presentable. Right now it’s still in the stuck-in-my-head stage still. I’m getting all the ideas of things to put on it together before I go ahead and throw it on the screen (that’s gonna be the hardest part). So, I’d really like suggestions. I definitely want a picture section as well as a section to put my thoughts and ratings on movies and books I’ve recently read, and try and recommend too and then I also would like to put a place where I can write a little about certain news articles and websites and direct you viewers to them. Any more ideas are greatly appreciated. Well, it’s real late and I have stuff to do tomorrow, so I’m going to try and get to sleep.

Till next post.

PS Bill Cosby is soo awsome!

Well, I finally got some time to work on the grass armchair, and I barely have enough time to write this post too. Well, we finished making the structure part with the cardboard and all yesterday. I’m probably going to have to plant it after our trip to California, but it’s all set. Here’s a picture of how it looks

It’s a little different than the one made by that company, but I think it’s going to turn out really well.

Well, tomorrow is Apathy night, but first I’ll be going to Id-Ra-Ha-Je for their chuckwagon event.
That should be fun. I’m hoping this time I can go on the zipline, I haven’t been on one of those in forever.

Till next post.

PS Sorry about the huge picture size, but I don’t have time to change it smaller and I’d rather just get it up.
If someone wants to fix it, host it and send me the url though they can! *Grin*

I was driving behind one of these today and I wondered to myself; “hmmm I wonder if that thing’s real” I mean it had “Mirage” printed on the back. Heh, that’s how exciting my day was. Oh well, I guess I’m gonna go do… something now, hey, I think I’ll go see if I can get the computer and test out Age of Empires III. I’m borrowing it from Chandler. By the way Chandler I’m done with your book, I was gonna give it to you today, but I forgot 😦
oh well.

Till next post.

Well I’m at Chandler’s house as you might have noticed if you read Disiance’s blog.
We’re watching Pirates of the Carribean now. It’s a great movie. Last night we made up a sound pack to replace the standard windows sounds. It makes using the computer 2x funner!
Noramally we’d charge 25 cents a download but for special for my readers you can get it free right here

Well, not much else to write about.

Till next post.
