In which my grandfather is assaulted and I am fed jelly beans. April 16, 2010

Oh hey!

Today, I’m at my grandma Abby’s house again, and I’m wearing my Wrockstock ’08 T-shirt (the one with the butterfly). My grandpa stared confusedly at it before looking at the back of the shirt, where the band list is printed. He then proceeded to read off the list, which included “Draco and the Molfoys and The Rumpus Lumpins.” Um… not quite. 😉 (That was supposed to be a little winking smiley face, all, “Oh, Grandpa, you’re so funny!”, but it turned out looking all worried.)

So, last night, I went to a little Chinese restaurant with my grandparents. There’s really no good way to introduce this. All I can say is that the Chinese restaurant is owned by a very short, very nice lady named Kim. Right as we opened the door, we saw her and a girl who looked about my age. Kim had brought out a bag of jelly beans and offered the girl some. The girl smiled and took two or three. Kim shook her head, grabbed the girl’s hand, and loaded her with about a million beans.

After a while, Kim came over to our table as we ate and told me to dip the egg roll I was eating into horseradish.

Freaking horseradish, y’all. Yuck. I sort of tried to laugh it off, but then she kept standing there until I ate the frakking horseradish. So I dipped the tiniest portion of the egg roll imaginable into the horseradish sauce. And I ate it.

I actually put so little on I couldn’t taste the sauce. *CRISIS AVERTED!*

But no. That was not all. At one point, she came over to the table to harass my grandpa (Ed, a.k.a. Lyon) because whenever my grandma’s out of town (which she is quite a lot, for business), he comes to Kim’s restaurant, being not that adept at cooking.

Kim: You clean the house for your wife when she’s traveling, Ed! (Then, I swear to All That is Holy, she smacks his freaking arm)

Lyon: Yeah, I… I sometimes clean the house for her.

Kim (to Abby): Does he clean the house for you when you’re out of town?

Abby (laughing): No way.

Lyon: I’m busy!

Kim laughs.

Kim: He brings different girlfriend here every time.

Abby (laughing): Bet they’re not very pretty.

Kim: No, they’re not pretty like you.

At this point, she left and we were left to eat our dinner in temporary peace. When I was full, Abby quickly scooped the rest of my food onto the main platter so Kim wouldn’t see I didn’t eat it all (apparently, she would’ve force-fed it to me).

Right as we were getting ready to leave, Kim brought over, I kid you not, about fifteen or twenty fortune cookies. For real. And then she proceeded to practically force-feed me jelly beans. Then she gave me two lollipops, and kept calling me a “smart lady,” for reasons I have yet to fathom.

Kim: How old are you? Thirteen or fourteen?

Me: Oh, um, twelve.

Kim: Ahh! So tall!

Me: Yeah… tall dad.

Kim: You bring him here next time!

Me: Okay!

Abby: Her mom’s short, though, she’s five-five.

Kim: Oh! Bring your mom, too! Bring whole family!

Me: Yeah!

And that is how I came to be force-fed jelly beans, promised I would bring my whole family to a little Chinese restaurant, and saw my grandpa get assaulted for not cleaning. All in one night. I’m like a champion.

Awesome: Wrockstock, Episode Two.

Unawesome: Uh… I don’t know.

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

 

Putting stuff on your head and Hyper Girl! October 9, 2009

Okay, now it’s Daisy again. I was just writing with a basket on my head. I forgot to mention that. I actually am pretty good at writing with my eyes closed. Now my eyes are closed and I am writing. This is fun. I don’t really know why it’s so hard to write with a basket on your head, but it is! Alright, I’m about to open my eyes. They are open! Here is a translation of my basket-talk:
I can’t really see. I kind of can, but it’s more fun if I can’t. now I am margo Roth spiegelman. * evil laughter * okay, now thea Wants to write Something. here you Go, thea!
That was fun! I just ate some cornbread. I was drawing some of my Hyper Girl comic today. The superheroes’ names are

This entire blog is mainly just me fangirling Maureen Johnson and talking about jeans October 7, 2009

Hey, guys! I’m just hanging out at Thea’s house right now. Actually, I’m going to school at Thea’s house, but whatever.
I just finished Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson. I LOVE MAUREEEN JOHNSON. I have also figured out that I am five degrees away from Maureen Johnson. Here’s how that works.

I know Cryssy Nelson (#1.) Cryssy Nelson knows Matt Maggiacomo (#2.) Matt Maggiacomo is dating Lauren Fairweather (#3.) Lauren Fairweather knows John Green (#5), who is friends with MAUREEN JOHNSON.

I KNOW MAUREEN JOHNSON!!!!!! And I like rainbows!

Anyway, I’m at Thea’s house, writing this. Unfortunately, they just changed the password to get on the Internet, and it’s really complicated and numbery. And Thea doesn’t know it. So instead, I’m writing this on Microsoft Word and I’ll copy and paste it when I have Internet.

Guess what? Last night, I was very busy. Busy getting jeans, because I do not fit into any jeans at all. OR SO I THOUGHT. However, I actually found some that fit. The thing is, this required me to go into quite a few stores at the mall. These stores included… dun dun dun duhhhhhh…. Justice.

Now, I don’t know if you know (*I don’t know that that’s a thing that I know*), but Justice is one of those super-girly stores. They were playing Hannah Montana music. Yeah.

Actually, although they do play Hannah Montana music, they have jeans there! Wooohoo! Actually, I didn’t end up buying jeans there, but whatever. Actually, I don’t think I can say actually any more, actually.
Alright… See you tomorrow!

Awesome: Suite Scarlett. And Maureen Johnson.
Unawesome: That I forgot to put “days ‘til” two days ago. Oops.
Days until house party: 15
Days until my birthday: 24
Days until Halloween: 25:
Days until Wrockstock: 31

Update: I am eating peeps. Shaped like ghosts. Which are hotter than John Green. Just kidding. Sorry. Inside joke. 🙂
