Nemo: Make sure to leave the window open because I’ll be on the roof, and that window is right next to where I’ll be.

Me: Okay. Make sure you yell loud enough for me to hear it over the music.

Nemo: Okay! Make sure you turn it up loud enough for me to hear.

*I turn the music up*

Me: IS THAT LOUD ENOUGH?!

Nemo: YES!

I regularly worry for the safety of this family.

Nemo just peeked through the window on a ladder and said, “KILLBOTS OF THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY.” I have the most terrifying family ever.

In other news, I just finished an amazing book called The Sky is Everywhere. It was so great! It made me cry, too, which sucked because I was at Mum’s office yesterday when I read it and that is not the best place to start crying, so I may have had a slight breakdown in a bathroom stall.

I was also relatively unstable and exhausted yesterday, so please do not judge. It was seriously such a good book, though. I highly reccommend it. And yes, if you have any sense whatsoever you will also fall in love with Joe Fontaine. God, that book was great.

Awesome: I found people to do A Million Ways with me for the talent show! Well, technically I found Maddie and then Maddie found Izze and Reagan, but whatever.

Unawesome: I still don’t know what I’m going to be for Halloween!

Days until my birthday: Fourteen!

Days until Halloween: Fifteen!

Never Too Much Firefly. June 21, 2010

A conversation between me, Mum, and Nemo while looking through our Netflix queue:

Me: Uhhhhh… Mum… what’s Waitress?

Mum (blushing): Uhhhh… that’s… uhhh…

Me: That’s… that’s a movie starring Nathan Fillion, isn’t it?

Mum: Well-w-uh-yes.

Me: Heh heh heh. Fangirl.

Pause.

Me: I’ll watch it with you.

Pause.

Nemo: I will, too.

Later:

Mum: That whole Waitress conversation earlier was pretty funny.

Me: Yeah… and the only reason I knew what that movie was?

Mum: Yeah?

Me: I… uh… I saw it on Nathan Fillion’s Wikipedia page.

We have been watching too much Firefly.

 

Corndogs! and Firefly June 1, 2010

Oh hey! Guess what? Guess what guess what guess what?

CORNDOGS! Hoo! Ha! Nerdfighters!

Apparently, I just got invited to the tenth birthday party of a girl named Zola. She is friends with Thea and the Sometimes Demons, and apparently she is very nice and anti-demon. Whateva. I guess I’ll go, being as odds are I probably won’t get beaten up again. *pleasepleasplease* And I suppose, even if something undesirable happens, it’ll make a good blog.

The sacrifices I make for you.

Anywho, guess what I did this weekend? I finished Firefly and Serenity! Wooohoooo! (SPOILER ALERT!!!)

Okay, so after watching the last episode of Firefly, I was sort of like, “Huh?” because no one died! Hooray! I could’ve sworn someone would’ve died!

I was freaking sad about Inara leaving, because she and Mal were totally in love and he screwed her now-dead friend and nooooo!

But then came Serenity. By that, I don’t mean the ship, I mean the Big Damn Movie. Then, of course, they had to kill Book and Wash. I mean, seriously, Wash? Wash? Everyone loves Wash! You can’t kill him!

Then again, that’s what I said about one of my favorite characters in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Gorram Joss Whedon, always killing the awesome ones… *sob.*

I was really surprised more awesome people didn’t die, though. Like Kaylee? I totally thought Kaylee was dead. Also Simon. Also River, but only when she jumped into that room full of Reavers. I mean, I thought she was sacrificing herself, but she fought the Reavers! That is so hardcore!

And Mal and Zoe and Inara and Jayne and Simon and Kaylee didn’t die! Yaaaaaay!

Basically, minus the people who died, it was totally awesome.

I’ll never forgive Joss Whedon for killing Wash, though. That was just wrong.

Sick and wrong.

In other news, it’s June! I think! Maybe? I’m pretty sure it’s June. But that means it’s almost summer! Wouldn’t be able to tell, though-it’s cold and rainy outside. Blegh. Freaking rain, I want summmmmeeeerrrrr! Please?

Pretty pretty please?

Awesome: FIREFLY!

Unawesome: *sniff* Wash and Book….

 

In Which I Fangirl Firefly. May 26, 2010

Oh hey! I need to hurry because I’m about to take a bath,* but I wanted to post a blog to celebrate Geek Pride Day. I’m not really doing anything special in particular to celebrate, being as I’m a Proud Geek everyday. But right now, I’m listening to Siriusly Smiling and I’m going to watch the sixth episode of Firefly tonight, so that probably counts. Yaaaaay, Firefly! I love Firefly! Yay yay yay! Hopefully, I can use my awesome Jedi Mind Trick skills to convince Mum and Nemo to let me stay up all night watching it. Heh heh heh.

ANYWAY, Firefly. Is. Effing. Amazing. Please please please no spoilers. And don’t even ask me whether I like BSG or Firefly better, because they’re both incomparable and amazing.

(Minor spoiler alert!!!) Zoe is so cool! Wash and Jayne (is that how it’s spelled?) are hilarious! Mal is so freaking awesome, like some type of male Kara Thrace only less frakked up and angelic. River is so crazy! I’m not sure whether or not I like Simon! The Shepherd is so mysterious! Kaylee is so awesome and so effing adorable! I just wanna hug her!

Similarities between Kara Thrace and Mal:

1. They’re both totally hardcore and fighty and stuff.

2. They’re both effing awesome.

3. A Great Majority of the population thinks they’re both hot. (Don’t deny it. I know straight girls who would totally go gay for Kara.)

4. Okay, I can’t really think of any more similarities, but trust me, there are loads.

Awesome: This Land. Also, that part where Mal gets Kaylee the dress and then everyone is a jerk to her and then she finds friends yaaaaay! Also, this.

Unawesome: Oh my God, why won’t Mal and Inara freaking kiss already? Jeez!

P.S. I’ve come to the distressing but inescapable fact that every time you ship Harry/Hermione or Kara/Lee, God cancels a Joss Whedon show.

*Like the Great Colin Singleton, I much prefer baths to showers.

 

Life Update, Sudden but Inevitable betrayals, and more rap! May 20, 2010

Oh hey! Guess what I have for you today? Well, no. Not a Darren e-mail. But I do have another rap (this time it’s to Thea, from me)!

Daisy:

You know that Thea is the coolest

If you’re a jerk, she could be the cruelest

Yeah, you know she’d chop off your face with a axe

‘Cause she’s not so good at c-c-comebacks

But that’s all right, you see

‘Cause she’s Th-Th-Th-Th-Thee…

A. Thea. Not… you know? Screw this.

Bookwormdaisy out!

I’m not very good at rapping.

In other news, the demons might not be so demonic after all.  London and Gracie came over to hang out yesterday. True, they have frighteningly little knowledge of Shakespeare’s genius,* but they seem pretty nice. I’m assuming the reason they were acting evil that one day was the third girl (I think her name was Nadaine)’s mystical, devil-like influence. But I’ll be on my guard and keep you posted.

In even more news, I’ve started watching Firefly for the first time. I’m only on the second episode, and I already love it. Kaylee is so awesome! Mal is so hilarious! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal (I love Wash)! It’s funny watching it after seeing Dr. Horrible ’cause Mal and Captain Hammer are both played by Nathan Fillion, who, for the record, is supremely magnificent! River totally reminds me of the Hybrid!

Awesome: Apple juice! Apple juice! You and me in Japan. Watch me dance.

Unawesome: Nothing!

*”What did you guys do in school today?” “We watched half of Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet.” “Hamlet?” “Yeah, you know… Shakespeare? To be or not to be? Screw this.”

 

Motherfrakkin’ yo yo yo! May 10, 2010

Oh hey! As everyone in the entire freaking world probably knows, yesterday was Mother’s Day. I didn’t post a sappy, happy post about how much I love my mom because I was busy hanging out with my mom… ’cause it was Mother’s Day. Also, I always talk about how much I love her. ‘Cause she freaking rules. And I got her a Bo Burnham (don’t click on the link unless you have headphones on-very, very not safe for work) CD instead of like, flowers, or whatever responsible children give their mothers. Oh yeah, baby.

In other news, the other day Thea e-mailed me with an awesome rap she wrote. I promptly wrote back, she replied, etc. I haven’t rapped back to her latest e-mail, but I’ll keep you posted.

Wanna hear some raps? (P.S. All spelling/grammar errors are from the original versions. I’m not editing.)

Thea:

Daisy’s so awesome she’s the star of the stars

smart enough to build a rocket to go to mars

Only sometimes does she have a problem with a fraction

*whisper* and sometimes its funny to see her reaction

But man that don’t matter at all you see

Because she’s awesome. bookworm. Da-a-a-a-is–yyy

Daisy:

Thea is awesome, she’s the best friend evar

She’s environmental, won’t go ridin’ in a car

She’d much rather take her rollerblades

And she’s too responsible to want to have a maid

Well, okay, maybe she doesn’t like to fold her clothes

But she’s super awesome at math, she never says, “Oh no!”

She’s the bestest, she’s better than the restest

She smart, so she’ll beat all the testests!

That was supposed to be like “test”

Not testes

That’s kinda gross!

Penis.

Okay, so my rap sort of fell apart there at the end

But Thea won’t care ’cause she’s a freaking awesome friend!

Thea:

-Cough-

Yo, yo, yo, yo.

LISTEN UP YALL

Here’s a little rap about friend

whos awesomefullness you can’t possibly comprehend

Here sweet little name is a flower, (Daisy!)

what she make me like (C-c-c-c-CRAZY!)

YO, YO, YO, YO

and heres a list of things thats shes good at

writing, fighting, and petting a cat.

reading, succeeding, not being a brat

loving, shoving, somehow not being fat

you walk by her shed say “I’d tap that.”

hurting herself in so many ways

running into walls then passing out in a haze

always using the correct phrase.

(BITCH IM IN A CRAZE)

Yall better love her or ill come to your door

knock you out with a baseball bat and staple you to the floor

put your hand in warm water so you wet yourself

cover you with hollandaise and sell you to a elf

yo, yo, yo, yo

This is McThea out YALL!

Daisy:

Thea is the best friend in the world

She’s a stellartastic friend, and a pretty cute girl

I mean that in a platonic way

‘Cause I’m down with that, but I’m just not gay

She’s good at numbers and fractions and math

She’ll stab you to death if you invoke her wrath

She can draw like DaVinci, paint like O’Keefe

She’s kind of a ninja, but she’s not a thief

If you’re mean to her, then I’ll punch you in the face

Stab you and smear your guts all over the place

I’ll shiv you right here if you make fun of her

‘Cause she’s so nice to me, oh yeah, for sure!

Thea:

I’m not down with you hating on my friend

and if you do it will be you who I end

’cause I love Daisy in a special way

but I can tell you right now that its not gay

and if you hate on her

ill cut you in a blur

ill slice your neck so fast the blood comes out blue

yea I’m sayin’ this to you

so to all yall haters heres a warning

you won’t live to see the next morning

cause Daisy and I will go ninja on your ass

and through the seventh level of hell you will not get past

cause you committed to many sins just for hating on Daisy

hopefully being in hell will make you crazy

and yes I know I already used that rhyme

but who fraking cares its a couple of lines

So if you hate my friend Daisy

don’t let your senses get to lazy

cause you’ve been warned

and if you do you will be scorned

and killed

by me

FOOL!

Daisy’s notes: The “somehow not being fat” thing in Thea’s second rap is a reference to how I eat a lot and am, surprisingly, not morbidly obese. And the “hurting herself in so many ways running into walls then passing out in a haze” is about how I’m a klutz and I get hurt a lot. Also, it is supposed to be McThea, not MC Thea.

Awesome: Charlie freaking McDonnell. Oh my God. How have I not watched any of his videos before? He’s awesome. And he has an English accent. Squee!

Also awesome:Oh my God, they’re making Scott Pilgrim into a movie. Starring Michael Cera. Yes yes yes yes yes.

Also also awesome: I made a video today! Finally! Yay! I’ll post it on my YouTube channel soon.

Unawesome: My stomach hurts ’cause I ate like, five pounds of pizza.
