Waterballoon Fight!

So Saturday, my friend organized a water balloon fight. It was EPIC! He spent about 45 dollars on water balloons and we spent 4 hours filling balloons. Was it worth it?

Look at this:
We had so many balloons. Some were dark green and looked like grenades. Others were brightly happily colored. We had large ones and small ones and it was AMAZING.

Pirate festival!

Three weeks ago, my friends and I went to the St. Louis area PIRATE FESTIVAL. There were many people dressed as pirates and they had shows and food and such.

One of the cutest things I saw was this fellow:

He was really hyper, so I only got his face blurry.

Home Made Pizza

A week or so ago, I decided to make home made pizza because my friend from school did and it looked super tasty. I think I used the same dough recipe that she did. Anyway, another friend was around and she took really nice pictures for me.

Anyway, here's the first pizza we ate. I decided to make a classic. I love fresh basil! And they're really easy to grow! :D

All I wanna do is HUG your BRAINS!

I like stuffed animal/anthropomorphic things. I have lots and lots and lots of stuffed animals and a couple stuffed viruses.

About two years ago, I came across this site:

They're on sale recently! Just a little bit but it made me realize I want one. Now, does this mean I think I should get myself one? No. Does this mean I think it's a worthy investment of my or anyone else's money? No. But think! The idea of having a plush brain! Then I won't have to spend all my time hovering over my friends' heads going "Brains! Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiin. Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnns!" Instead I could just take my brain plush, hold it up Lion King (baby Simba) style, announce to the world, "BRAIN!!!!!", and pretend to devour it.

Maybe I should be a zombie for halloween. Or a zombie pirate? o.O;

We'll think about this more later.

Everyone's a Little Bit Sociolpathic!

Everyone's a little bit socialpathic. Or at least we all have a fondness for sociopathic characters. I've been watching Dexter recently and I started to ask myself: Why do we love Dexter? Sure, he's funny and awesome, and somehow charming. But really? I think we all like sociopaths.

We like sociopaths as villains. Think: Darth Vader, Voldemort, Heero Yuy (from Gundam Wing), any horror movie scary person. We also like the strange, awkward, anti-social characters. At least I do.

But why do we like sociopaths? I think it's the crazy inside all of us. Everyone gets those moments when we want to kill something or rip someone's head off (or maybe it's just what we say when we're angry). I also think sociopaths are able to say/do things we're not willing to say/do. We can live vicariously and that gives us a way to release unpleasant emotions.

So everyone can be a little crazy and have a fondness for crazy emotionally disconnected people. I think it's healthy.

Cheers to sociopathic characters! I'm going to go drink some tea now and watch more Dexter.

Vebally Normal's Results and Aftermath

So, remember how I said I was dared to be verbally normal for a work day? That went interestingly. As I said, I had three strikes. My first strike was a "Merrrrrr" I uttered because I was grouchy at my friend for mentioning minions (from Despicable Me) or maybe it was for being hungry and not having enough unhealthy food to eat. My second strike (which didn't count because it really wasn't my fault and I really should not have been provoked) was when my friend who challenged me poked me in my tickle spot repeatedly until I squawked.  The rest of the day went well. I spoke coherently (but not quite normally due to my not quite normal random ideas) and I managed not to make any minion sounds and jibberish speak. Go me.

So I was given pastries. I ate them so fast, I could only get these two semi blurry pictures. Sorry. :D The filling is indian spiced ground chicken and potatoes. mmmm.

computer problems

Having computer problems. Fixing them soon. Will post regularly again in a week.
