Okay, this post is going to be short and crappy because I don’t have much time to write it, but basically the Bloggess put a cat on her head and then Morgan Freeman did and so this is my response, only I’m using Thea’s cat, Grendel, instead of Lexie because I’m at Thea’s house.

Wow. That was way harder than you make it look, Bloggess.

Awesome: The fact that I’m having a sleepover with Boo tonight, and also the fact that Mum thought my disgusting, fangirlish nicknames for certain fictional characters were awesome, not disgusting.

Unawesome: Writers’ block. Stab stab stab.

 

Gay Canadians, Cate, Battlestar, and *PUPPIES!* Yrsh. February 2, 2010

Hey guys, it’s me, Daisy! I actually have a frakload of stuff to talk about today! O.o

First off and completely random: Natalie Dee is the best.

Secondly, I forgot. Oh yeah.

Thirdly, my fingers were accidentally misplaced when I was trying to type “yeah” so it looked like yrsh.

Oh yrsh.

Back to secondly. I hung out with Cate this weekend! She just got back from Costa Rica with her class, and I. Missed. Her. So. Much. We had a good time hanging out and hugging and talking about Costa Rica and stuff! Then, we went to visit Nemo’s roommate’s dog’s puppies. HOLYFRAK. Those puppies. Are so freaking cute. Ohmygawd.

Also, we watched Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, which was my fifth time watching it, but only Cate’s first. Needless to say, she loved it. I mean, who doesn’t love Dr. Horrible? Honestly. GOD, I love that movie. *I can haz sequel nao plz joss whedon?*

Ooooh, and we played Don’t Break the Ice. Have you ever played that? It’s the best game ever, almost. You take a while setting it up and then you get to hit things with hammers, and there’s a polar bear but we never use him because it’s too hard to stick him in the ice. Cate and I always play that game at my house for some reason.

So yeah, we had a good time! Oh, and on Saturday night (at least, I think it was Saturday. I forget. It might have been Wednesday. Just kidding. I know it wasn’t Wednesday), Mum and I made brownies and pizza and then we went to the movie rental place and rented the first disc of season one of Battlestar Galactica and brought it home to watch, only they had the miniseries for sale at F.Y.E. next door, and we bought that and watched ALL THREE HOURS of the four episodes in the miniseries, which was totally awesome! Also, I saw Awesome Nerdtastic Movie-rental-place-Guy again, whose name, I figured out, is Josh, and I talked to him about BSG again (last time I saw him, he told me his theory that Kara Thrace is one of the angelics from the old series). He didn’t know that the Caprica premiere was last Friday, and he missed it. 😦 Poor Nerdtastic Josh.

So you know, the usual. I love Battlestar Galactica, and Cate and I are inseparable.

Oh, and guess what? Thea has a new cat, temporarily. They’re long-term catsitting. His name is Pretty Boy Floyd, though currently he has been dubbed Angry Floyd (by me). He has pretty, fluffy, black fur and he’s sometimes very sweet. I’d take a picture of him, but he’s downstairs in Max’s room and he hisses and yowls every time I approach him.

So, due to some clever relocation, I have been sitting in the living room of Thea’s house all morning, blogging and re-reading 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson (who is lovely, and a wonderful fort-builder). I’ve debated going into Thea’s room to plug the laptop in, but Angry Floyd was in there, and he was angry, but Max moved him downstairs and now I can go into Thea’s room, and I might, except for there’s nowhere to sit in there, because she’s sprawled out on the bed and the beanbag is in here with the cover off of it, because it’s being washed free of bunny pee, and there is a plug in here, but I’m not sure whether or not I should use it because I think it exploded once maybe.

So yeah! I’ve been having a pretty wonderful day. I’ll blog again soon, never fear!

Awesome: Carousing with Cupid! I am going to Carousing wit Cupid really soon! 😀 And I’ll see Matt, and Justin, and CRYSSY!!!!!!!! YAY!

Unawesome: Dead Unicorns. But this picture is totally hilarious.

P.S. When Cate was hanging out, we were talking about BSG (even though Cate’s never seen it, but she thinks it looks awesome) and Mum was talking about how hot Helo and Chief Tyrol are. After a while, Nemo joined in and said that he read that, like, three out of five gay Canadian males think Aaron Douglas (who plays Tyrol) is uberhot*, and a couple minutes later, he said, “Like, if you had a locker, there would be pictures of Aaron Douglas all over it.” I asked if he meant me, or if he meant if I was a gay Canadian, and he was like, “…. Both. You have a lot in common with gay Canadians. I think you would get along splendidly with them.”

I would like to know some gay Canadians.

*Which may or may not have been made up by Nemo.

 

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. 😄 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. 😄

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.

 

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?

  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

  9. 13 Little Blue Envelopes 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…

  1. On my first Halloween I was only 1 day old.
  2. Eeyore. I think.
  3. A butterfly

  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!

My Bizzare Pets April 3, 2009

Hyi, People!!

So, this blog is about my strange pets. Lexie is my awesome cat, and Brandon is my fabulous rabbit. And speaking of Brandon, he’s kind of a hermaphrodite. No. Not really. But we’re unaware as to whether he’s male or female. I know. That’s kinda weird. But it only gets weirder….

One morning, Mum woke up and Lexie was licking her…… EYE. e-y-e, the part of your body you see with.  Another morning, she woke up and I kid you not, Lexie’s butthole was INCHES from her face. That’s happened to me before, too. 😀

 

One morning, Mum woke up and was staggering through the house, blind (without her glasses) and Lexie runs up and jumps up to her butt and claws it. 🙂 

 

Frequently, we let Brandon hop around in the living room, and we build him a little blanket fort out of a stool (like a thing you sit on, not like poop) and a blanket, and he hides in it. Well, Lexie, it turns out, loves the blanket fort too, so she scares Brandon away and then sits there inside the fort, purrrring away. 😀

When we bring Brandon up, we set some lettuce and cabbage and stuff on the floor for him to eat. When he doesn’t eat it, Lexie goes over to the greens and I. kid. you. not. she. starts. eating. the. veggies. yes. cat. eating. veggies. So. Freaking. Adorable. 🙂 Then, when Brandon starts eating them, she pounces and makes him stop eating…. or she tries, anyway…. 🙂

Sometimes, Lexie goes up to hard surfaces and starts seizing. Okay. Not totally. But her tail just starts shaking and freakin’ out and it’s so funny! I wonder if she can be diagnosed with, like, tail-epilepsy or something. Not that epilepsy is funny, but your cat’s tail…. shaking… randomly? It’s so weird! 😀

 

Oh, how I love them!

Love,

 

Daisy

P.S. More blogs to come! 🙂

 

Emergency Cat Surgery January 18, 2009

So, I was just hanging some pictures in my room, and Istopped to hang out with Mum, Nemo, and my beautiful cat, Lexie, on the bed.

There were these funny little strips of clear thing that were on these picture hanging stickers, and I dropped one on Lexie to see if she would totally attack it. 

 

We were joking, like, “Don’t eat it, Lexie!”

She ate it.

And Mum bravely tried to rescue the thing from inside Lexie’s mouth and got her hand slashed to pieces. Lexie just made wharfing movements for a few minutes, and she still hadn’t threw it up. So we did a surgery.

Mum held Lexie down and her mouth open, I held a flashlight, and Nemo looked in her throat to find the sticker. We found it on the roof of her mouth. So Nemo takes tweezers and removes the sticker!!!!

We are cat surgeons. 🙂 And Lexie’s okay now.
