Marathons and Cracker and Battlestar (Oh My!) January 8, 2010

Hey guys! I’ve been having a pretty awesome day so far. I’ve been reading, and I had a guitar lesson with Thea and her brother Max, which was cut short when Kim burned some spanakopita and we ran out of the room coughing and snorting. Also, Thea and I played another writing game. This one was different. For the first two, Thea would say a word and then I would and we’d alternate words to make a story. For the third, we did the same thing, but each person got two words per turn. I think I’ll share them. I would have Thea’s be in italics and mine not, but that’s just so confusing. Just leave it up to your own imagination as to who wrote what.

And yes, you will find yourself questioning our sanity.

Number one:

I once loved a man named Cracker. He was the most deeply disturbed creature I had ever punched. He knew a Cylon named Leoben. He was a messed up Cylon. The only place he would go was London in his pants. Cracker didn’t love sunlight, but loved poodles. Cracker had a cat named Filipo. He scratched Cracker’s ear. Cracker once killed an elephant in Georgia. Suddenly, his eyes turned deep rainbow. I thought that he was physco. I didn’t love him anymore.

Number two:

Rainbows splashed in the bunny’s innards. The only dark thing that the bunny loved was chocolate. He had a name. His name was Tripod. He loved nothing except his innards which were covered with rainbows. Fish liked to climb in his guts, so he ate them. Acid bubbled on the bunny’s toes. The toes hurt in so many disturbing fish. The fish liked to eat nerdy mathletes. Tripod liked nerdfighters to eat.

Number Three*:

Sam came to a bar. Everyone loved SciFi and killed Cylons for fun. Sam loved a Cylon who was mentally disturbed. Sam was not deeply disturbed.

Those were fun, weren’t they? … I hope they were. Last night, I got Season 4.5 of Battlestar Galactica in the mail! I only watched one episode and I am DYING TO WATCH MORE! Alsjdl’fjasdlf;alkslfl;kbalxtsblakjl;dsBALLS.  We’re having a BSG marathon tonight, teeheehee. XD I’m not giving anything away, but for anyone who has watched Season 4.5, episode one, OMG! When the thing happened and the person did that thing and stuff? O.o I guess that’s not very specific… but the whole episode was quite shocking.

I’M EXCITED.

Anyway… soooo… I really love Battlestar Galactica… a lot… um… yeah… I’m really obsessed with raspberry zinger tea… I drank, like, two cups of it in the space of an hour… it was intense.

I guess I’ll go now… see you soon! And by soon, I mean, like, Monday or so, because I’ll be having a Battlestar marathon for most of the weekend. XD

Awesome: Raspberry tea and Battlestar Galactica and Cracker.

Unawesome: Only one more season left… *sob* Calm down… I still have Caprica… and The Plan…

*Hahahahahaha D’Anna Biers.

I’m Probably Way Too Addicted January 6, 2010

Hey guys! I haven’t posted in ages, but the past is behind us, eh? And neither has Hayleyghoover, but no one is mad at her! Okay… maybe they are… some of them… but I’M not! I love Hayleyghoover!

I really should talk about Wrockstock and how amazing it was, but that’ll take ages and I’m lazy and I can’t stop thinking about BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh Battlestar Galactica yesssssss.

Bessssst. Show. EVEAARRRRRRRRR. I can’t even DESCRIBE how obsessed I am. I won’t even TRY. Instead I’ll just, like, talk about some of my favorite characters. ‘Cause I’m lazy. I haven’t blogged in months, but I sure haven’t changed much.

No spoilers! Unless, you know, you consider names and pictures as spoilers.  Which you shouldn’t.

Kara “Starbuck” Thrace:

Lee “Apollo” Adama:

Boomer/Sharon/Number Eight/Athena:  

Chief Galen Tyrol:

Karl “Helo” Agathon:

President Laura Roslin:

Anastasia (?) “Dee” Dualla:  

William Adama:

Cally Henderson Tyrol:  

Samuel T. Anders:  

Billy Keikeya:

Felix Gaeta: I sort of totally want his singing skills.

Even though he’s a drunk, angry little frak, I have to admit that I like Tigh, too.

I have a lot of other favorite characters, but I’m losing track…. I’m probably forgetting someone totally major… hmm….

Anyway, yeah. Battlestar Galactica is amaaazing.

I don’t really know what else to talk about. I like, breathe Battlestar Galactica like AIR. Though it will never usurp Harry Potter. NEVER EVER EVER EVER.

Ummm… I’ll just go now… love you guys! Bye!

Awesome: Aaron Douglas, the guy who plays Chief Tyrol. Not to be fangirlish or anything, but he rocks. Also, today I leaned that he is in a society of JEDI CHEFS. For reals. Jedi. That cook.

Unawesome: When my favorite characters die. ;(

Days until my obsession wears off: NEVER!

P.S. If you want to watch me rave about Battletstar Galactica, check out my YouTube channel. Assuredly, there will be Battlestar there.

 

THE HOUSE PARTY!!!!! OMG!!!!! October 23, 2009

Last night was the freaking best!!!!!! If you don’t remember, the Whomping Willows and Justin Finch-Fletchley and the Sugar Quills just came to our house and played a made of awesome show!!! At our house!!!! It was so awesome!
Matt and Justin are seriously so nice, plus, they’re friends of one of our good friends, Cryssy Nelson. In fact, she told them to hug us or they’d be in big trouble. 😀
Mum picked Thea and I up from her house and hurried home to set some things up, and then someone knocked on the door and I was like, “OHMYGAWD IT’S THEM HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP!” They came in and we introduced and then we ordered some amazing pizza and ate it. At one point, I just sat down and said, “I. Am. So. Full.” And Justin asked me how many pieces of pizza I had, and I admitted only one, but those slices were huge! And he just said, “I had three. And I think pizza is coming out of my eyes.” I love those guys.
They started setting up some merch and a few people started showing up. It was awesome to see my friends who came. Cate, Lila, Lizzy, and Thea were there at first, but Ruth, Gus, Sonia, and Abby (Thompsen) showed up later. I haven’t freaking seen Roo in like, months. It was so awesome to finally see her again.
Then they started playing, and it was amazing. It turned into a full-blown wizard dance party after a very short time, and they kept alternating between Justin’s songs and Matt’s songs, playing back-up for each other. It’s crazy how fun it is just screaming “Krum” and dancing with your friends. I love my life. And oh oh oh! They had me lead the dancing on “On Behalf of Neville”!!!!!!!! I don’t know if you know, but I effing daydream about stuff like that happening to me.

They finished off with “In Which Draco and Harry Secretly Want to Make Out”, which I absolutely love, and instead of saying “Dumbledore and Grindlewald” at the end, they said, “Gandalf and Dumbledore”, which was totally hilariously awesome!

Afterwards, we bought some merch and hung out. I had issues not buying every single thing, but I decided that I would get more at Wrockstock. 😀 I ended up getting a “Madame Pomfrey, What Up?” shirt, a Ravenclaw eyepatch (designed by Cryssy), a Hufflepuff eyepatch (designed by Brandi), and a Let Love Grow shirt. Mum got an “Oh, we love you Viktor Krum!” shirt, a JFF is my BFF glass, the live Yule Ball CD of Matt’s, a Ravenclaw eyepatch, and a Trees are People Too shirt. Nemo got a “Madame Pomfrey, What Up?” shirt, a “Let Love Grow” shirt, and a Slytherin eyepatch (designed by Nate!).

After everyone left (Thea stayed over), we lit a fire outside and hung out for a bit. I gave Matt and Justin matchboxes that I decorated, and they really liked them! Justin’s had a pizza on one side, “I can’t fit into a matchbox” on the other side, and lots of black and yellow glitter. Matt’s had the Welcome To the House of Awesome picture on one side, the HPA’s logo on the other side, and green, brown, and red glitter. And GUESS WHAT THEY GAVE ME?!?!??!????? They gave me the guitar strings that they broke during the show!!!!! SQUEEEE!!!!!

Then Thea and I went to bed and discussed cat anatomy and how amazing that was!

In the morning, Matt, Justin, Mum, Nemo, Thea, and I went to this place called the Blue Plate Diner and it was awesome (the food was, but also mostly just the fact that I was having breakfast with the Whomping Willow and Justin Finch-Fletchley)!

Then they had to leave ;( , but before they left they gave us all hugs and it was totally squeetastically amazing OMG OMG OMG!!!! 😀 When Thea hugged Matt she said in this little voice, “Goodbye, Whompy!” and it was like a little kid squeaking, “Goodbye, Santa!” and it was adorable. Now I really miss them. Really really really. I AM SO EXCITED FOR WROCKSTOCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I have to go. I have a buttload of stuff to do. That was amazingly amazing amazing. I am so happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Matt said that the picture of Matt and I with Bre and Lila was one of his favorite tour pictures. I almost fainted.
P.P.S. Stupid iMovie said that YouTube published my video from a few days ago. IT LIED. I know I have to be punished, but can it wait until things calm down a bit? Please?
P.P.P.S. Can I be Matt Maggiacomo when I grow up?

Awesome: Matt and Justin.
Unawesome: The fact that they left.

I think my tongue is broken October 14, 2009

Hi, guys!
Today has been pretty awesome. I learned some Latin and read some Hobbit and played some guitar. I learned how to play part of Big Rock Candy Mountain (la la la I painted my cat blue). Maria came over and we did some surprisingly relatively painless math. It was probably relatively painless partly because I’ve already done this stuff before, but still. Also, it was Maria. And I love Maria. She’s just such a nice person.

Also, if you subscribe to my vlog (bookwormdaisy), then you’ll know all about the Ferret/Monkey/Chinchilla/Lemur. I’m sorry if you already know this story, but it just has to be told.

So yesterday, Thea, Kim and I were reading Sir Gawain and the Not So Jolly Green Giant Green Knight, and Max and Miles (Thea’s older brothers) walked in. Here is the dialogue that occured:

Miles: We are not the weirdest people in this neighborhood.

Me: You… aren’t?

Miles: The Baileys have a monkey in their garage.

Me: …?

So it turns out, Max and Miles were just walking or something, and they saw into the Baileys’ garage, and they saw A MONKEY OR LEMUR OR SOMETHING JUMPING AROUND IN A CAGE. I know. And it *did* occur to me (actually, it occurred to Kim first, and then it made sense) that Max and Miles might have been lying. Many teenage boys like lying to their little sisters. Especially about monkeys…?

So Thea and I tried to see into the tiny garage window, but it was covered up with a little piece of paper or something, so we couldn’t see in. So we disguised ourselves (ever so brilliantly), Thea as a boy and me with different clothes. And glasses. And we walked up to the Baileys’ house, knocked on the door, and a lady answered.

Me: Hi, my friend dared me to come up to all the houses on this street and ask people if they were keeping anything weird in their garage.

Thea: *giggle*

Lady: Um… we have a lot of weird things in our garage. I couldn’t really name them all. We have some license plates from the 50’s and some old hubcaps.

My brain: Like… monkeys?

Me: Okay. Thanks.

And a strange thing I noticed was that she was wearing those plastic glove things, and I was like, “Hmmm… monkey gloves?”

Curious.

So Thea crept up to the window again to see if she could see the monkey thing. She glanced at it and hissed, “DAISY. It’s a chinchilla.” And I was like, “A chinchilla?”

So I sneaked (snuck?) up to the window and peered in. If you looked down past the paper you could see a rabbit cage. I said, “I only see a cage. And a shadow.” And Thea was like, “That’s it.” So I looked at it again and saw something black, furry, and asleep. “OHMYGOD is that a chinchilla?”

The moral of this story is that people are weird. And have things that are possible monkeys or chinchillas or lemurs. Also, it was jumping when Max and Miles saw it. Apparently. I’m pretty sure chinchillas don’t jump.

Bye!

Awesome: NINJAS!
Unawesome: Smaug. Sorry. That was the only thing I could currently think of that was unawesome.

Harry Potter and the Post of Lists October 12, 2009

Hi, everyone!

Today, I rode Paris (the horse) again. Whenever I hear his name, I think of Peris from the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. I FREAKING LOVE SCOTT WESTERFELD! You should read that series. Now. Do it.

As a matter of fact, I’m going to list some books that you had better read right the freak now or I will stab you I really recommend reading. (DO IT RIGHT NOW.)

  1. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. How have you survived not reading these books?
  2. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
  3. Paper Towns by John Green
  4. Looking for Alaska by John Green (Seriously. Have I mentioned lately how much I love him?)
  5. The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld
  6. Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci
  7. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. How have you survived not reading these books?
  8. His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman (it’s a series)
  9. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
  10. Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson
  11. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. How have you survived not reading these books?

Of course, those are just a few. Go read them! Now!

Alright, now that you’ve finished reading those, hi. My name is Daisy. I don’t really know what to write about. I write blogs about Harry Potter and being an obsessive fangirl and Starbuck-whores. In second or third grade I wrote a hero report about J.K. Rowling.
I think I’m going to make some lists today. The first one was the “books that you had better read right the freak now or I will stab you I really recommend reading. (DO IT RIGHT NOW.)” list. Now, I’ll make a fangirl list. Of people I fangirl.

The Fangirl List:

  1. J.K. Rowling. Duh.
  2. Wizard rockers. Seriously. All of them. Like
  3. Matt Maggiacomo or
  4. Lauren Fairweather or
  5. Paul and Joe DeGeorge or any of the other wrockers I madly fangirl. Like
  6. Alex Carpenter.
  7. John Green.
  8. Hank  Green
  9. Whoever invented the Internet. I am in love with you.
  10. There are probably more but I don’t feel like listing every single one.

That was fun! I should make another list, probably, or this post won’t live up to its title.

Hmmmm…. How about:

People/Things I am Terrified of:

  1. Voldemort
  2. Hitler
  3. Sarah Palin
  4. Vlad the Impaler
  5. Thea’s brother’s girlfriend, Sunshine, who seems pretty nice but once told Max to whip Thea.

Next list…

Things I have been for Halloween:

  1. On my first Halloween I was only 1 day old.
  2. Eeyore. I think.
  3. A butterfly
  4. A witch
  5. Robin Hood
  6. A ghost
  7. Hermione Granger
  8. Luna Lovegood
  9. Moaning Myrtle
  10. Rita Skeeter
  11. Bellatrix Lestrange

This Halloween, I’m being Dolores Umbridge.

Alright, I’m going to go. Bye!

Awesome:

 

This post has Battlestar Galactica spoilers. October 10, 2009

Hello, everyone! I’m listening to Lauren Fairweather. I’m smitten with the Potions Master. Just kidding. But I *am* listening to Post-Potter Depression.

So today, I woke up at ten and then I spent the entire morning on the Internet and now I figured I should probably do something more productive, so I’m blogging.

Also, I’m participating in a SECRET PROJECT. But it’s not a Vlogbrother secret project. But I won’t tell you. Because it’s a secret. Sssh.

I don’t even know what I’m going to talk about. I have so much stuff to do. I don’t know what I’ll do first. I might make a video of me lip-synching to Mrs. Nerimon or something. I don’t even know. I should be fixing the back entryway. Very crazy things are happening to the back entryway. I’d take a picture, except for I’m blogging on the computer that doesn’t have a camera and is not movable.

La la la…

Do you know what you should do? You should leave a comment with the name of the book you’re reading right now. Just for fun. I’m reading The Hobbit. It’s good. I like Gandalf. Except Dumbledore’s better. Dumbledore is always better. Sorry. Gandalf is cool. But Dumbledore is better.

There are a lot of pidgeons on the wire outside the window right now. What should I talk about? This post is mainly just me blabbering.

Oh! Battlestar Galactica! That’s what I can talk about! I love Battlestar Galactica! It’s awesome! I’m watching the old series right now. It’s amazing. Be careful. Because I’m about to give something away.

I think that Serina shouldn’t have died. She had a kid and also she was married. If they had to kill off one of the female characters, it should have been Cassiopeia or Athena because then Starbuck wouldn’t have had to choose. Just kidding. That’s horrible. And also Starbuck would have just found like, five other girls, that man-whore. Just kidding. Starbuck’s cool. Even though he’s a whore.

I’m sorry. This post is full of me calling sci-fi characters from the 70’s whores. I’m sorry for you. But it’s true. Starbuck was just asking to be called a whore. So really, I’m just doing justice to the world of Battlestar Galactica. I think. Maybe.

Awesome: Battlestar Galactica. And Lauren Fairweather. Have I already said Lauren Fairweather? I don’t care. Lauren Fairweather.

Unawesome: Serina dying. Also, the scene at the end where Apollo and Boxy are hugging after Serina just died. Get the frakking death scene over quick, because you almost made me cry. Screw you.

Days until Wrockstock: 27
Days until House Party: 11
Days until my birthday: 20
Days until Halloween: 21

Bye!
OH! AND GUESS WHAT? I’m in

 

And watch our love go on and on and Nerimon…. I WANT TO BE MRS. NERIMON! October 4, 2009

Hey, guys. Actually, despite the title, I don’t very much want to be Mrs. Nerimon. I just have that song stuck so firmly in my head that it is now a part of me.

I WANT TO BE MRS. NERIMON

SO WE CAN BUILD A LITTLE HOUSE WITH A LAWN

AND WATCH OUR LOVE GO ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND NERIMON

I’M FAIRLY CERTAIN YOU’RE THE ONE FOR ME

THEY’LL STREAM OUR WEDDING ON BLOGTV

AND BE OFFICIATED BY JOHN GREEN

SO ALEX, PLEASE SAY YES

 

I would not like to be Mrs. Nerimon, but if I ever do get married, I would like to be officiated by John Green.

Dear John Green,

Look. I know I’m only eleven years old. But pretty pretty please will you officiate my wedding when and if it happens?

Thanks,

Daisy

P.S. For a wedding present I would like a puppy-sized elephant please, thank you.

 

Okay, on a fairly unrelated note, you know stoplights? Okay, I don’t pretend to be a car expert. I’m only 11 and I can’t legally drive.  Actually, I’m almost 12 and I still can’t legally drive. But I think it’s fair to sayt that everyone knows this:

Okay, and you know how green is for Go and red is for Stop? Okay, and you know yellow? And you know how everyone says yellow is for Slow Down?

 

IT SO DOES NOT MEAN SLOW DOWN. It means Hurry the Frak up Because the Light’s About to Turn Red and if you Slow Down then You’ll Run a Red Light which is Against the Law! Seriously! I mean, who slows when the light turns yellow unless it’s been yellow for a while? I do not know the answer to that. If you do, please enlighten me. If you don’t, then it will be one of Life’s Mysteries. Which is fine by me. Yes, I just said frak.

 

Anywho, I hung out with Cate on Friday! It was soooo much fun. We filmed a video for Saturday and played Don’t Break The Ice (yes) and recorded some songs and went to the DI for Halloween and Wrockstock costumes and made Shrinky Dinks. It was very fun. I love Cate. Also, she wrote part of Friday’s blog post. OMG This post already has 383 words. Actually, now it has 387. Actually- oh, never mind.

 

Alrighty, I have to go take a picture for Karen Kavett (xperpetualmotion)’s I Design project. http://www.karenkavett.com/idesign/what.html

See ya!
