Hi! I'm a huge fan of the Shades of London series, and I'm new to editing Wiki pages, though I frequently read/visit them. I was sad to see how bare the wiki is, so I'm looking to help with editing the pages - supplying more information on anything, really.
Like I said, I'm new to this. I've briefly worked with HTML and know a very little bit about it. I'm very good with written but have the artistic ability of a lamppost. So, what can I do?
Firstly, I'm soooo glad there is someone else on the wiki becuase it's a veritable ghost town that I've been posting on whenever I have the chance. So I'm so glad that there is someone else who can edit on the wiki! I literally threw my hands in the air and killed my friend with my happiness :)
I'm not a dictator about the wiki - if you have anything to add to any of the pages, feel free :) Honestly, everything needs to be edited on the wiki - I'm gonna rejig the homepage a bit so it's more fluid. If you want direction with what you want to edit then, since you're good with written, perhaps you could start on the character profiles or with the plot-line for the two books? I want to add more people to the character boxes at the front because it's currently an odd number and it's killing me :3
P.S - If you get this twice, that's 'cause I've posted it on your Sisters Grimm Wiki Message Wall and Shades of London Message Wall - not becuase I'm overeager or anything :S
Sorry, but I just have to make a new thread. The last one is just WAY too long and my computer is taking for ever to load GIFs and what not, so it's just getting hard to use. :P
Haha, yeah, I spent a while staring at it as well. It's so hypnotizing. o.O
Haha, it has been busy. We ran out of propane yesterday, so we couldn't heat the house, and since we live on top of a mountain and we have 3-4 feet of snow, no propane company really wants to come all the way up here. :/ It was freezing last night, but I survived it!! They refilled the tank today, so I no longer have to hid under a blanket whenever I try to do anything. :P
Ehehe, my dad forced my little brother to wash some dishes tonight so I was just like
Ooh, a new photocopy machine! That actually sounds kinda fun, I know what you mean. Only we could find joy in photocopying pages. :P Gah, lucky... (yes, I said holiday aloud :P) Our next break isn't until April. *sobs*
It's so far!! *sobs even more*
Honestly, if someone writes that in your yearbook, you should at least have the right to scribble random nonsense in their's. :P
Haha, I KNOW. Gollum is just plain awesome! Sometimes, I like to think of what filming for those movies looks like, and how silly everyone with motion capture looks. xD
Yeah, they did it for the Winter Olympics, which I actually haven't really been watching. (I know, way to support my country) A lot of the sports are really boring to watch, like curling, but I can never catch all the interesting ones, like skeleton or ice skating. Yes, ice skating. It's so cool to watch, mostly because I know that I could never ever in a million years do it. I could barely make it around the ice rink without falling over this year. xD
Yeah, I think that it will probably be available in the UK afterwards. USA Network will probably post it on their YouTube. Haha, I told you to be patient! I wuv Shules, but there is actually another couple on the show that I like better. I shall not say anything else. :3
I have seen that GIF as well, seeing as how I just used a variant of it, and I only have one thing to say: Supernatural. :P They truly do have a GIF for all occasions.
Haha, they would totally do that. I think that they probably will now. :P Ehehe, if I ran a TV show, there is NO way that I would let my family on it. They would probably screw it all up. xD Oh gosh, I can see it now: the incredible overacting, the unintentionally comedic scenes, the multiple takes, and the incredibly large blooper reel. I wouldn't be that worried about my older brother, but I think my younger one would try to wreck it on purpose. He would be making weird faces and screwing up the lines and it would be a total mess. If I ever get a TV show, he is banned from the set at all times. :P
Wow, that must be kinda awful. If it rained here all the time, I really don't know what I'd do. Haha, I was just typing all of this out in our living room, and my dad and siblings are watching TV, and I heard a voice say "...what do you think about that, Jack?!?" over the speakers, and I literally shouted "THAT'S PSYCH - SEASON 6, EPISODE 2: LAST NIGHT GUS" and then my brother shouted back "THAT'S SCARY" cause I was totally right. Just thought that I'd share that. :3 Anywho, back to the weather. It's pretty temperate here, cause I am on the east coast. I hope you guys do get snow. We actually got so much snow that the fence around our yard is only about a foot tall now.. :P it used to be about 3-4 feet, but with all this snow, my dog can hop over it. It's actually kinda funny. :P
Haha, check out Canada's apology.
I know! It feels so weird to actually converse with someone else besides you on this wiki. We should all get on chat sometime. :P
Grits... Hmm.. This is actually a tough one for me, cause I am in the North, and grits are, like, southern-ish food. It was originally a Native-American food made from corn, but now it's pretty much made for breakfasts. It's actually pretty much the same thing as porridge, so that probably helps a bit. We do have this thing called "Cream of Wheat" which is essentially just grits with little fruits bits or flavoring that you pour water into and it gets all breakfasty and what not.
I have an excuse for not replying yesterday even though I replied to everyone else - but firstly I have to copy you and do the following:
I had it all typed up. I had all the GIFs lined up. But then the Indian Soap Opera that I have become inexpilcably addicted to distracted me so instead of pressing the 'Reply' button, I pressed the home button instead. And then I was so depressed, I boycotted this wiki in my annoyance :s
You live on a mountain!! That is so cool!! I am enying you like crazy now!! That is so cool!! Aside from the lack of propane and freezing temperatures, that is so cool!! And the thick snow too just makes it cooler! (pun intended) But at least you have propane now and you survived the night! I still can't get over the fact that you live over a mountain. I live in an average cul-de-sac so a mountain???
Haha, my dad liberated me from the washing today in a dramatic turn of events which I was happy about - but then I got stuck washing the car so I was the exact opposite of Shawn BooYah-ing.
I know! I love the machine! Thank you for understanding my fascination! But then again, we are the very people that managed to continue a conversation on Broccoli as long as we did, so anything is possible :D
I'd say I feel your pain regarding the holiday situ, but I'm currently not in a position to feel that pain :S Would now be a good time to mention that I have a holiday in April too? Mmm, sometimes I love England. Except for One Direction. I don't love them.
Yeah, it's more like their quotes are all We hate you all" and I honestly wouldn't care except for my school is a CofE school with apparently strict ideas on what the ideal yearbook quote should have. So the yearbook team have been stuck with enforcing those guidelines and it is such a delightful job!
I know what you mean - I also think it must be really weird for actors having to act with green-screen. Especially if they're running from monsters or something and have to run from nothing terrified and screaming. I'd probably burst out laughing myself :D
I've not been entirely patriotic either in that I haven't watched any of the Olympics at all. (It seems we are both united in supporting our countries.) Funny you should mention curling, since that's one of the only sports Britain has been doing well in. I think we're something like 19th currently, so obviously we're doing awesomely.
I have no idea what skeleton is, but I love watching people ice-skate becuase that GIF is basically me on ice too but ten times worse. I'd also like to catch the ice-hockey on TV becuase that's the only sport I've played thats actually displayed in Sochi so I can pretedn to be knowledgable on sport :3
Ooh, I hope so, but I'm wary about watching it just in case I spoil anything for myself. Usually by this point, I would have gone online and looked up spilers and plots for the show I was interested (mainly through their wiki) but I'm making myself not go onto the Psych Wiki or read anything that could be spoilery. Because for some reason, knowing that you are admin of the Psych wiki puts me off spoiling the show for myself 'cause I feel like you would psychically know - if that's not weird ;) I'm choosing to ignore the comment about the other couple because now I have no choice but to go an binge watch until I find out who you are talking about.
Haha, I think if I was ever to star in the tv show that I'm not destined to make in the future, I'd spend the entire time hiding behind a giant rock or something becuase my family would just overact like nothing you've ever seen ever. Ever. Ever. Ever. And both my brothers would be exactly like your younger bro so I might just have to permenantly ban them :3
Um, think you're in England and curse the weather? That's what anyone should do if it rains in their country anything like it's raining over here :D That is scary. That s very, very, scary The closest I've ever got to doing that would be my ability to recognise David Tennant's voice anywhere, but that pales to being able to quote the person, season and episode of your favourite show. It's scary, but congrats - you know your fandom like no-one else I've ever seen :)
Thank you for hoping - I'd do anythng to have as much as snow as you have, but even over the course of my fifteen years, I have never seen that much snow, ever. 3-4 feet of rain, however is another thing :(
Hehe, I only recognise about a handful of people on that pic but I forgive Canada for producing the likes of Jim Carrey (who I had no idea was even Canadian) and Cobie Smulders who is just awesome anyway. And I'm guessing the picture of the chips (...er, fries, I think you call them?) has something to do with Cananda which I can't decipher. Unless the sauce-y thing is Maple Syrup and if so - WHO CAME UP WITH THE IDEA OF CHIPS AND SYRUP?? That's grotesque!
Riiight. So grits are like...porridge? Do you even have porridge in America? (I end on this question becuase if the answer is no, then I will be shocked into an ominous silence)
Haha, I totally know what you mean, I've done that on other wikis. Once you type it out once, you don't feel like doing it again, and then you're all crabby and want to eat ice cream so you shut off the computer and watch TV instead. :P
Haha, it's not like a mountain like this:
It's a really tiny mountain that is more like a large lump with 2 rather steep sides. It takes about 10 minutes to walk down each side, but maybe that's just cause I'm just out of shape. :P At the top is the neighborhood were I live. Nothing ever happens here, aside from getting stranded when it snows. Oh gosh, a few years ago (I think that it was 3), we got this HUGE snow storm in October and we were out of electricity for about 2 weeks (all the places around us were out of power as well). It was a nightmare. They had to bring electricians up from Kentucky to get the power back, it was so awful. And then 2 years ago, in October (again), we had another huge storm (I think that it was Hurricane Sandy) that knocked a tree onto our house, and it landed on my parents room. There was a hole in the ceiling and everything in the room had to be moved, and since I have one of the biggest rooms, all of my parents books from their bookshelves were stored in my room until early January, when everything was fixed. It was long, but at least I had stuff to read. :P (not really, their books are SO boring.)
Aw... My sister and dad are out of town this weekend cause they are doing college stuff, so all dish duty went to me - again. :/ Haha, yeah, anything is possible with us. xD
I don't love One Direction, but I don't hate them either. Are they way over-rated? Yes, absolutely. Are most of their songs incredibly annoying? Uh, no duh. Is their entire fanbase a bunch of bratty 12 year-olds that one wants to strangle? You have no idea.... But, have they been arrested for DUI, drugs, egging people's houses and acting like overall idiots? No, not really. They haven't screwed up yet, and I am glad for that. It's bad enough that we have Justin Bieber, I don't think that I could take an entire band of 5 Biebers. But that doesn't mean that I won't laugh when one of them gets hit in the face with a basketball.
Hahah, that makes me crack up. xD
Wow, it seems like the yearbook team has their work cut out for them... I don't envy their job, that's for sure.
Hehe, I love to imagine actors doing work on the green screen. It's so funny, especially for the villains, cause they all look like complete idiots. I actually don't think that I would be able to do all of the serious scenes without the soundtrack playing as I would act it out. :P It just doesn't seem right without it. :P
Hehe, they look so silly!
I'm actually watching the Olympics right now. It's women's slalom skiing and apparently the person in first right now is this 18 year-old American girl who is amazing and in the Olympics and oh my gosh how is she doing that I can barely even touch my toes.
^Me and my mom watching^
Skeleton is this really crazy sport in which the person lies head first on this little sled and goes through this icy course at about 50+ mph. It's crazy. I would show you a GIF, but I can't find a good one. :P
Ehehe, yeah. I don't psychically know, but I totally know what you mean. Just watch and wait, it's always best to be surprised. :P
My mom would be freaking out, I know that much. OH GOSH, my brother would try SO hard to screw it up, I just know it. And I would be like "NO YOU CAN'T GUEST STAR, GO AWAY!" and then my parents would be all like "Let your little brother be in an episode. Just do it, it'll make him so happy and he's the only little brother you have and blah blah blah sappy, mushy guilt trip stuff." It would be horrible... :P
Ehehehe, I know it's scary. I'm scared of me at some times... Speaking of David Tenant, what on earth is he even doing in that GIF?? It's kinda freaking me out cause they are both in sync. It's hypnotizing. Haha, thanks! xD I really don't know anyone else who can do that either... I need a life.. :P
It started to get warm and now it's raining, so we have about 2 feet now.. And it's all squishy and gross and I just want spring to come soon. Wait, does it rain during the summer as well?
^BTW, Singing in the Rain, BEST. MUSICAL. EVER.^ If you've never seen it, you should. It's the greatest.
Haha, me too. I didn't know a lot of the girls, but I recognized a couple of the guys. I didn't realize that Jim Carey was Canadian until I saw that as well. Yeah, I'm really not sure what the the French fries had to do with that. Wait, just Googled "canadian french fries" and apparently it's a dish called "poutine", which is made of French fries with gravy and cheese. Apparently, you can get it anywhere, like McDonald's. Speaking of which, is there anything at McDonald's that you guys have that we don't have? Like, I know in Maine that they have a sandwich called the "McLobster" which is a lobster sandwich. Being in a land-locked state, that just seems weird. :P
I guess that we have porridge, but it's not something that I eat.. :P Mostly, I just stumble out of bed and grab whatever is in the pantry, which is usually cereal. My little brother talked my dad into getting a box of Trix at the grocery store the other day (my parents try to actively avoid getting us sugary cereals, so when we manage to get it, we sort of freak out), so that's what I've been eating for the past couple of days. It's essentially puffed flavored cardboard, yet I somehow feel compelled to eat a second bowl. :P
I'm sorry, I shouldn't have used that GIF. Chances are you have that stuck in your head now. My apologies. :P
Yeaah, but the fact that you are still able to refer to it as a mountain is AWESOME! It probably would take me a hell of a lot more than 10 minutes to climb the mountain 'cause I swear I'm inanely out of shape too. But at least you have a neighbourhood up there - all I'm imagining is Dual Spires in Psych whilst typing this. Aw, I feel for you - the other day we had a power cut that lasted an hour and a half and we were all like "Argh" so TWO WEEKS is something we'd not be ale to see through. How did you cope? Candles? You were affected by Hurricane Sandy?!! Are you all alright? Is your house alright? But yeah, at least books of all things were moved into your room, even if they were boring. I still can't get over the fact that you were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Nah, in this country overly, manically obsession over these people occurs and I'm so fed up. But I agree that they are no way as bad as Justin Bieber and I can actually stand to like some of their songs :) But that GIF has made my day because who wouldn't want to see one of them hit in the face with a basketball?
I know! Before replying, I spent about a minute just watching Tennant being in sync with himself and it was like " You are awesome!!" I have no idea what he was doing in that GIF - I looked it up on Google, but all I could find when I typed 'David Tennant with Superman Shirt; was references to Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and Hamlet. And whilst I remember Tennant as Hamlet, for some reason I can't imagine Shakespeare writing Hamlet in as a Superman-shirt-wearing-protagonist.
Ooh, I hate, hate snow when it's all mushy and squishy and gross. But since we rain here more often than not, you have to get up really early to see beautiful snow before the skies open and then you have a death-trap of icey road and tarmac waiting for you outside. It does - but lately our summers have been really hot and sunny. Which is lovely, but odd since our summer used to alterante between sunny and rainy days pretty equally. Everyone's saying global warming is the cause and then they start wishing for rain. Welcome to England :D
I will endeavour to watch the musical at at least one point in my life - I'm guessing you've seen it?
I think... chips/french fries with gravy and cheese easily trumps . Hehe, I'm absolutely the worst person to ask about McDonalds considering I've never been - my parents are of the belief that it's best to eat what you can see being prepared so eating out makes them feel queasy, and also we've not really been since McD's doesn't sell halal food (as far as we are aware). Actually that's a lie - work experience last year led to my friend breaking me out of the establishment I was working in and she took me to McDonald's. And since I have an extensive family in this town, I spent the entire time hiding under the table 'cause for some reason, that of all days happened to be the day my grandad-in-some-way-I-have-no-idea was standing outside. Literally just standing outside and doing nothing. It didn't help that McDonald's had walls that were basically windows and no brick and I was like whyyyyyyyy?!
But yeah, a McLobster would be weird in a land-locked state :S
LEGOLAS!!! Firstly, they look awesomely weird but awesome. And yesh, I'd need the soundtrack playing whilst filming 'cause. it would be wrong without it. Yeah, I get what you are saying about villains, especially when they're supposed to be flinging magic out of their hands and lightning and the like when all the actors are doing in reality is just standing there flailing their arms.
Haha, that's basically my reaction to everything sporty. America, at east seems to be doing well in the Olympics.
I typed skeleton into youtube and am watching it as I type - it looks fun but I'd be way to afraid that I'd curve off the ice and injure my head or something. Which, considering, my ability at everything sporty, would probably be likely.
Haha, that is basically all I'm capable of in the morning - grabbing whatever I can out of the pantry for breakfast :) Otherwise, I'm dead on my feet. Hehe, my parents long ago accepted that my brothers and I turn seriously hyperactive when anything sugary turns up in our house and sugared cereal is something I have to fight for because I can't ever eat cereal without sugar. IT CANNOT BE!! But I get why you would feel compelled to eat cereal that taste like cardboard - for some weird reason, I'm the same with biscuits :3
I seriously can't get that song out of my head and it probably won't leave for the next week or two. What is it about that song??!!
You probably hate this book since you're not that into YA books like this but HAVE YOU READ THE INFERNAL DEVICES? It's so good and I was like "I LOVE YOU" to one of the male main characters. I'm gonna have to go and fan-girl on the shadowhunters wiki now.
I know! I love the Silence too! And who'd have thought they were confessional priests of all things too?
You beat my silence!!
There is no way I can beat that silence!
Haha, at least our neighborhood isn't anything like Dual Spires. That place is so creepy and weird, but I love that episode so much. Speaking of which, Psych starts airing again in about 8 minutes, which means that I really have to finish typing this. :P
We bought a generator, so we had some heat and plugged in the refrigerator, the downstairs freezers so that we wouldn't lose all of our frozen food, and a bunch of lamps. I was just talking to my mom, and she claims that it was only 8 days, but I distinctly remember it being a lot longer than that, around like 10-14. xD It was pretty nasty, but we survived. Yes, we were affected by Hurricane Sandy. We were all fine, all though it did give us a bit of a scare when the tree hit our house at about 10 at night. Our house is totally fine now, even though we had to put in new dry wall and get the roof partially fixed. It gave my parents the chance to repaint their bedroom. :P
They are overly worshiped in this country as well, but part of me is thinking that it must be worse where you are. Seeing as how it's a smaller country and it's their country of origin, there must be tons of rabid fangirls roaming the streets. That must be pretty nightmare-ish. Hehe, yeah, I kinda like some of their music (and by that I mean that I may or may not have a few of their songs on my iPod), but a lot of it tends to be the same thing over and over and over again.
Haha, I KNOW. I can't stop staring at it. Oh, that makes sense. Here, look at this other picture of Tennant in a stage production. 'Tis quite entertaining.
I hate squishy, mushy snow, but it's not as bad as other things that I stepped in over the weekend that shall remain unnamed. :/ But yeah, it's quite pretty when there's a fresh snowfall, but not really after that. It pretty nice a couple of weeks ago when there was ice all over the trees. Everything looked like it was covered in glass. The downside of that is that everything was covered in ice. So I spent a good half hour scraping ice off of our car. xD
Yush, I practically grew up on that musical. I wuv it so much, and the tap dancing scenes are AMAZING. It's a really old movie (1952, yeah, it's ancient) but it's one of the best musicals ever. It's about the transition from silent movies to talking movies and focuses on these two actors who are mega stars for their work together in silent films. When the studio starts transitioning to movies with sound, the movie that they make looks to be a complete flop due to the way the sound system was set up, the horrible dialog, and the leading actress's whiny, annoying voice. When the trailer for the movie gets horrible reviews and appears to be more of a comedy than a romantic movie, they try to turn it into a musical in the short amount of time before it is released. And a lot of hilarity ensues. I literally know all the lines to that movie, as well as The Princess Bride, because I have watched them so much.
Wow. You've never been to Mickey D's. That should be really shocking, but you really aren't missing too much. I really like their sweet tea, but it turns out that it is just normal Lipton tea, except chilled, so I can make it at home if the need ever arose. :P Haha, you're McDonald's experience sounds really creepy. If I saw my granddad standing outside of McDonald's doing nothing while I was hiding under a table, I would be TOTALLY freaked out. Just REALLY freaked. I wouldn't even be lured out with chicken nuggets. :P
I would just burst into giggle fits because I'd know how stupid I looked! I wouldn't really be able to be all serious without someone ominously banging a timpani behind me. And even then, I would still probably giggle. xD
Yeah, apparently we did pretty well in the Olympics. I wouldn't really know cause I turned off the closing ceremonies to watch the final episode of Downton Abbey on tv. It was actually a really dumb episode...
I would be so scared of injuring my head. I would just be so scared.. I often wonder when these athletes decided to learn these obscure sports, I mean do they just wake up one morning as a child and say "Gee, when I grow up, I want to be an Olympic curler!" and then go to the nearest sports center and sign up for it? I just can't picture that...
I know! Normal cereal is just so gross.. And there is NO way that my parents would ever let me put sugar in it, and I'm not even sure if that would help. I have often contemplated about what would happen if I took a bottle of Hershey's chocolate syrup and a cup of milk and then made chocolate milk and used that in my cereal instead. It would probably be awesome, I can tell you that much. :D
I was just listening to "Pompeii" by Bastille, so I am happy. I like that song. Now it's "Dark Horse" by Katy Perry, which I don't really care for that much.. But yeah, Friday is WAY too catchy for a song that everyone hates. Haha, how would you like to be the guy who wrote that song? xD Total low point of your career. :P
No, I have not read it. I shall see if my local library has it, and if it doesn't, I'll try to find it online. :P Because the Internet contains ALLLL. :P Also, I can't stop looking at those Steve Carell GIFs. xD So hypnotizing...
Haha, my Silence conquers all. Like a boss. Ehehe, that sounded really random out of context. :P
Sorry that there weren't many GIFs in this post. Psych starts in literally 2 minutes, and I can't risk missing a second of it. :P
Hehe, I admit I am really curious about the annual cinnamon fest they have though; I'd love my town to have weird little quirks like that ;) Though possibly not all about cinnamon :D
My parents are pretty much the same when it comes to time and day proportions, no actually, mine are probably worse. As in Mum will wake me up screaming it's 8am when it's only like half seven :( Aw, any excuse to redecorate is awesome, though probably less awesome for your parents considering it was a hurricane.
Ohhhh yeah. It's worse over here but then I'm also imagining it's worse over in America for the Bieber. Following on from the Justin hate-convo we were having the other day, I've convinced myself to have my yearbook quote as "Don't hate on Justin Bieber. She has feelings too." I feel that will do justice to the yearbook since I've already come across five people professing their love for him in their quotes and I was like "NO." :)
For some weird reason, I'm guessing that you have a thing for tap :D Aw, I usually can't watch old movies but for the past year I've been forcing myself to watch them and appreciate the classics, so I will try my damndest to watch it 'cause it does actually sound good :) I've never even heard of the Princess Bride but practically knowing all the lines is something to be proud of.
I used the word knowing in that sentence and as we are talking about films, I'll ask "Have you ever seen the film Knowing?" If you haven't: Don't. It has the crappiest ending in the whole history of humanity and it will make you want to weep tears of frustration and time-waste-tion.
Haha, I'm sorry for all the unnamed things you stepped in. Aww, I loooove it when everything is covered in ice - luckily, that is one chore I've managed to avoid. I've never been asked to scrape ice off the car because for some bizarre reason, my parents are scared I'll contract hypothermia or something.
Nope. Never really been. Haha, are you a specific-tea type of person? As in, you know the difference between teas that basically look the same and (I swear) taste the same? If you are, then I congratulate you because that's a quality I respect in anyone who is able to differentiate between tea. I swear it's all the same ;)
Ehehe, yesh it was creepy, especially because he wasn't my grandad grandad, but actually my grandad's uncle who apparently had nothing better to do than stand outside McDonald's doing nothing. I'm certain there's probably a conspiracy theory within my family that makes them all collectively try to keep me out of Maccy D's. (I love how you call it Mickey D's which I'm guessing is an American thing?)
This is going on a separate line because it deserves it: I LOVE CHICKEN NUGGETS TOO!!!
Yeah, I have no idea how Britain did in the Olympics either sine I've literally not been watching TV at all for some reason. I have seriously noooo idea what happened in Downton Abbey towards the end (after the whole Anna Bates storyline). Anything worthy of mention? *Cough Branson Cough*
That is basically my mantra whenever I come across any skill-based sports - "I would not be able to do that. I'd be so scared." I don't know what it is, but yeah my head would be the thing I'd be most scared abut. And my eyes. And my spine. And I'm just gonna stop there before I list every part of my body...
Hah, yeah I get what you mean, especially because they are quite obscure sports - like what on Earth would possess a child to want to learn how to curl of all things. It is, essentially, brushing ice. And how on earth do you practice that?
You know what I can't get over? Dressage being in the Olympics. I feel so sorry for the horses because they are made to look like fools.
Ahhh, personally I think you are missing out on the awesomeness of sugary cereal - most of the time I'd be willing to eat anything for breakfast so long as there is sugar. Aaaaaaand I'm realising how addicted I am to sugar as I type this which is really bad :O Chocolate milk and cereal??? Whew, I thought I had a sweet tooth but you have me beat there!
Ha, I think even Friday exceeds my ability to write anything to rhythm. ;) Yeah, everyone hates that song but the one thing I can't get over was a few weeks after it was released, Rebecca Black's suicide was all over the internet and loads of people were saying it was 'cause she couldn't cope with the lash-back on the song. Turns out she didn't commit suicide and she had no idea she had apparently killed herself until she typed her name into google and the world was either saying "R.I.P" or "Thank God." :S I don't particularly like her but I seriously just can't imagine how it would feel to find the world mourning your death without you knowing it :S
Sorry for the morbidness but have I already told you this? I'm currently experiencing deja-vu really strongly :3
Hehe, I just typed her name in and I've just discovered she has a song called Saturday. I'm not listening to it just in case it's another Friday and I won't be able to get it out of my head forEVER.
The internet does contain all manner of beautiful and amazing things. Yay, do read it! Now I feel weird in case you probably don't like it but even just peruse or glance at the cover and you'll make me feel so happy and I'll be like ARGHHHH! Ramble over
Hehe, that sounds odd 'tis true - ALWAYS CHOOSE FANDOM OVER ANYTHING ELSE REGARDLESS OF GIFs OR POSTS OR ANYTHING - NOTHING BEATS THE FANDOM!!!
While I would love a cinnamon festival, I don't know if I could take all of the other "quirks" (and by that I mean the crazy people and the lack of Internet) that came with Dual Spires. xD
Haha, actually my parent's were actually kinda chipper about it. They were just like "Perfect! Now we can repaint the room!" and I was all like "Repaint? What's wrong with the color that you've had for the last 9 years?!?" :P
Gah, how can people still profess their love for him? Haven't they seen enough of his annoying antics? Granted, he can kinda sort of sing (like a girl, mind you), but his style in music is just bleh! Plus he's not even cute... He looks like he's and drugs and just got mugged/run over by an 18-wheeler.
Also, really?? Those pants?? Really?? Do you realize that you look like a 1 and a half year old baby at the beach??
What made you think that those pants were a good idea? Please, I am BEGGING to know what went through his mind when he was shopping and saw those. "OH WOW! I can make myself look even more like a moron than usual! Perfect, I'll buy ten!"
Yush. I like tap dancing. 'Tis fun. :3 It is really good. It's amazing, in fact. :3 You've never heard of the Princess Bride?!? O.O It is seriously one of the best movies out there. And the book is great as well, cause it has all of this goofy commentary from the author. Well, the Princess Bride is this amazing comedy that I can't even BEGIN to explain, but it is seriously one of the best movies ever. It's SO funny and goofy and charming and now I want to watch it, but it's 10 o'clock at night on a Tuesday right now. xD
That pretty much sums up the main plot of the movie. It's from the 80s, but it is truly fantastic and amazing.
It's witty and goofy and amazing. Dang, now I want to read the book...
I have seen that movie. It was so intense and amazing and then the end happened. It frustrates me so much!! JUST WHY?!?! Why would they do that! I remember when we saw it, we were on vacation and we were so glued to the screen that we brought our food into the family room so that we wouldn't miss any of it. It is seriously one of the crappiest movies out there. Gah, it makes me want to punch Nic Cage and his ridiculous bird-hair...
Ehehe, good. I'm not the only person who thinks that Branson is the most amazing character in the show. Well, he met this school teacher lady who was kinda weird and flirty at the same time, but I don't know how long that's gonna last. Plus, her mouth was huge... Not sure why I included that last bit. xD
Haha, that dressage GIF is priceless! Wow, I didn't even know that they had that in the Olympics. Is that one of those things that airs in the middle of the day when no one is watching, or do they never show it on TV? Still, it's ridiculous... Although, I do kind of wonder how they teach the horses to do that.
I have yet to attempt this delicious concoction, and will most likely try to when my parents are A.) Not watching or B.) Not around. Either way will suffice. :P
Yeah, that would be pretty awkward, and actually kinda hurtful. I would be pretty upset, I can tell you that much. Good thing that she has thick skin towards that kinda thing. Wait, why on Earth would she make another song after the "tremendous success" of her last one?!?
YESS!! Fandom pwns all!! :D
Did you by chance see the Oscars over there? (probably not, it was late enough when they started here) Benedict Cumberbatch was there and he presented an award and photobombed people and was just generally epic.
Also, he got a selfie with Ellen, Brad Pitt, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. :P
Yeeeeeeeeah, lack of internet is something I could not cope with. And also the lack of cars - whilst I'm not a fan of the vehicle, I'm incapabable of riding a bike so that would be problematic. That was such a weird sentence. Oh, and the librarian too would creep me out 'cause I love the library and she'd make me keep my distance :S
Oooh those trousers. Hehe, I've never ever said that Bieber can't sing because he's a heck of a lot more musical than me (which isn't that impressive anyway :) but I always get confused who I'm listening to when his songs just randomly come up on the radio because he sounds like a cross between a female and a duck. And I'm beng kind. And oooh those trousers. Wait - pants. That's the vernacular in America, right? It's weird, as they mean underwear here and I read it thinking that was Justin's underwear and it looks a lot like a nappy. Um, diaper for the American. Ehehe, if only the world knew what was going through Justin's head when he brought those pants - 'tis one of the great mysteries of the world. WHY DO SUCH PANTS EXIST????? WHY WOULD ANY SELF-RESPECTING BOY/MAN/IT WEAR SUCH A THING???
Hehe, figured as much. Do you like watching tap-dancing or actually tap-dancing yourself? I promise I will watch it at one point in my life and hopefully soon too. And I will also make a conscious effort to read the book purely for the goofy commentary. And 'cause it's a book, I will try to read that as soon as I can.
THANK YOU! YOU KNOW THE ENDING TO KNOWING AND YOU KNOW HOW RUBBISH IT IS! We did excatly the same- dropped everyhing and watched and then the aliens were some weird altruistic save-the-children types redoing Adam and Eve with the children at the end. And the sun explodes and everyone dies. JUST WHY?!?! Aww, I don't mind Nic Cage as much as everyone does and everyone really does seem to hate him. As for his hair though...yesh, it is hideous.
Aww he is awesome and I still can't get over Branson and Sybil and baby Sybbie. That is an important detail - size of the mouth on a person. Obviousl XD
Also, did you know that the 12th Doctor is going to have a new companion? Alongside Clara, I mean? His name is Danny Pink:
Yes, unfortunately that is a sport in the Olympics that I discovered in 2012. And you've hit the nail on the head too - it's always at 2pm which is a really rubbish time to air anything 'cause who watches TV then. Apparently, it's really hard to teach the horses and takes a lot of skill and hurts a lot but why would hundreds of people turn up to watch that as a sport?
Yeah, I don't exactly like her songs, but I admire her resilience (that is an excruciatingly big word for me at 10:30 in the evening). I have noooo idea why she would but she has about 5 singles out and is also and awared-winner and nominne. Well, the more you know...
''YESS!! Fandom pwns all!! :D'' - The motto of every sane person's life :)
I only saw the highlights of the Oscars because it was on really late, and also not showing on any channels that I was aware of. Benedict's photobomb was AWESOME and was literally all over the newspapers and the internet. He can jump high, is all I'm saying. Oh, and Jennifer Lawrence fell over again. I thought it was on purpose, but then I saw it and she is reaaaal clumsy.
Sorry it's taken so long for me to get back to you. This week has essentially been the seventh circle of hell. :P
Sunday was Daylight's Savings Time, so we lost an hour of sleep, so it's really hard to wake up in the morning now.. Plus, in my Honors Civics class, we are doing this very long project in which we have to create our very own community and it's starting to get very frustrating because we still have so much to do..
Haha, yeah. I don't mind the librarians at my local library, but I always get the feeling that they absolutely hate their job. :P They always seem unhappy. I don't know how they can be, I mean, ALL THOSE BOOKS!! I'm actually thinking about volunteering to work there this summer.. I think that it would be a lot of fun.
Eheh, yeah. I do think that he can sing, but it is such a shame that he is wasting his talent with all of his stupid antics. THOSE PANTS. JUST. ARGH. Ikr? Clearly, they don't have any respect for themselves when they dress like that. And furthermore, what type of mother lets her son walk out of the door looking like that?!?! There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY that my mom (and my dad, for that matter) would EVER let my brothers wear that (not that they ever would, they aren't stupid). If and when I ever have children (in the very, very far future) I would sooner jump up and down wearing a fuchsia toga while tearing out my hair and singing the Family Guy theme song in my special opera voice (usually reserved only or singing music from Les Miserables) on live television than let my offspring wear that. :P
I do both, but I am in no way as good as Donald O'Conner and Gene Kelly. :P It is a seriously awesome book, because while the story is sort of boring, the fake commentary from the author is hilarious. Plus, there are a TON of hilarious lines in the book. It's just a generally awesome book. xD
We literally dropped everything to watch that movie. We were OUT OF STATE, on our vacation, and we couldn't be bothered to do anything else because it was so intense. I mean, we wouldn't even eat our dinner until it was the commercial breaks!! And then the end happened... And we felt really dumb for sitting there for about 3 hours doing nothing else. It was so disappointing... Haha, I don't hate him, it's just sometimes his acting can be hard to watch. Plus, in his movies, the dialogue is only either whispered or screamed. :P Haha his hair. xD That's what happens when you add Photoshop and the people of the Internet to it. :P
OHMYGOSH, I didn't even know that he was getting a new companion!!! Maybe he'll be better than Clara.. I hope so. :P
Haha, I mean, I know that the Oylmpics are during the summer, but even I have better things to do than watch TV during the middle of the day. I tend to go to the pool a lot during the summer. :P
Though that tends to be me... :P
Haha, yeah. I don't think that I would be able to be as strong as her, I mean, she gets SO MUCH hate. I would be so upset... It would be so depressing. Who knows, maybe her other songs are a little better.. (doubt it, though. :P)
xD I absolutely love that GIF!! That is one of my all time favorite animated movies!! Plus, Tina Fey was in it. :P In case you don't know, I have this weird obsession with Tina Fey. I just think that she is so awesome, I mean, she's hilarious and her impressions are fantastic, and plus, she was the first female head writer on Saturday Night Live (I have a weird obsession with that to, I just think that the whole concept of doing live sketch comedy EVERY SINGLE WEEK on national television is just one of the greatest things ever), and she ushered in the generation of strong female players on that show. She's just awesome. :3
Yeah, I was able to watch most of the Oscars, but since I was on the other side of the country, they were several hours behind us, so when it was 9 o'clock in California, it was about 12 here, and the next day was a school day. :S So yeah. :P Also, John Travolta was introducing Idina Menzel so she could sing "Let It Go" from Frozen, and he TOTALLY butchered her name. He said something like "Adele Dazeem." I saw it happen live, and my mom was like "Wait, did he just say her name wrong??" and my siblings and I are just like
Yeah, I saw the thing about Jennifer Lawrence (just watched Catching Fire twice over the weekend as well, it was AMAZING) and while part of me wants to say that she is just clumsy, it does kind of look like she was faking it for some reason. But that doesn't make me love her any less! :P She's so hilarious, and a really good role model as well. And we all know that today's society could use some good role models, I mean *coughcough*
I get that. I get that. I get that. This past week has been the seventh circle of hell for me too :)
Daylight's Savings Time already??? I'm glad 'cause I now get what Honors are, but what type of class is Civics because we don't have that over here? Would now be the wrong time to say ooh, that sounds like a fun project! And I'm not even being sarcastic - we've just done a Biology project that was about 6 hours and was literally just measuring leaves and analysing the average width of them for 25% of our final grade. I kid not. So your community project sounds as exciting as anything :P But is it a hypothetical community, a community where you gets students to act as civilians, or something out of the box like a community made of play-do? (You have to have Play-do in America because a country is incomplete without it.)
HAHA, and that is in capitals because I'm pretty sure my librarians hate their job and also hate each other which is why I don't
particularly like going there. And also because I live in the
smaller part of an already small town so the books there are really quite crappy. OMGness! I was going to get a summer job at the library this summer! We must be twins!!! (I may have watched some really weird sitcoms for no apparent reason).
Well it was actually supposed to be for last summer but I may have lazed about and watched Merlin on repeat :P
^In case you were wondering what is actually said about coincidences^
Hehe, a fuschia toga? That specific? And on live TV too?
I'm happy that you've planned this out already, because I think it is necessary to go to such inane lengths rather than let my future kids wear that. Forget my future offspring, I'd rather do that than be in the same room as anyone wearing said pant atrocities. I actually feel sorry for babies because they then have to live with the shame of wearing diapers that are compared to Bieber's trousers. But, I'm sorry, I'm more tolerant of baggy, baggy, baggy pants than these idiocies:
I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU WOULD PURPOSEFULLY DO THAT AND WEAR THEM ON YOUR TEETH IN THE HOPE THAT THEY MAKE YOU LOOK GOOD. THEY DON'T!!! Grills are something that I will never say a good word about. EVER. Like why would you WANT to look like you devour metal and haven't seen a toothbrush ever since your last meal?
I promise to read it and I'm also taking it that Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor are tap dancers themselves too.
See, yes. The start of the movie is worthy enough for you to drop everything when you're out of state and just watch it feverishly, even forsaking food until commercial breaks. We all literally just sat there unmoving after it finished, unable to comprehend how three hours of our life had been wasted and that we would never get those three hours back because the sun exploded and aliens abducted kids to be the new generation. I've angered myself now just thinking about the ending.
I never noticed that! But it's true that he basically only ever whispers or screams :P
But I love Clara!!! She's so awesome and awesome and awesome. But I think they have introduced him because chemistry between Capaldi and Clara would be weird so he's probably the new love interest. Not to mention that he's a teacher at her school anyway, so love is is in the air perhaps?
Oh gawsh, this is awful but I can't swim and I'd really like to learn just in case I have to dive in the water to escape evil people running after me because I'm apparently a hot commodity internationally due to my overuse of the word awesome and exclamation marks in posts :)
Oh, I know! I love Megamind. He's he most adorbale villain ever. Well no. Gru is. He's adorable.
Hehe, I may have had an inkling about your obsession with Tina Fey from previous posts, sue to the torrent of GIFs you post where she features the most :) I did not know any of those facts about her. But whoa! Awesome woman or what? And also, awesome woman for woman or what? I just find that any GIFs on the internet that I can relate to are usually of her so she's just become more awesomer.
Hehe, I heard about that! Heaven knows how he managed to read Idina Menzel's name as 'Adele Nazeem' Was he drunk or something? I may have to go and find that on Youtube...
Oh and also what I know of the Oscars is what's been dubbed as the 'World's Biggest Selfie':
HEY! I SAW CATCHING FIRE THIS WEEKEND TOO!! (Well only half of it, but still!) It was awesome and I think it's a really good adaptation of the book. And I love Jennifer Lawrence. She's all like "I'm gonna be me and I don't care what you think about it!"
Miley Cyrus...I don't what to say regarding her except WHAT THE HELL HAS SHE DONE TO HERSELF?? I jsst, I feel very strongly about Miley Cyrus, and none of the feels are good.
Yesh, Daylight's Savings Time started and it stinks. I normally love it in the fall, cause we get an extra hour of sleep, but in the spring it's torture. Also, I literally had this ENTIRE message all typed out (and it is quite long) and wikia decided to take me to a new page and delete it, so I feel like punching something right now.
I am pretty tired today because I was up until 3 in the morning last night because there was a special Psych marathon on TV last night that started at midnight and ran till 6 am. I didn't watch the marathon. :P My parents wouldn't let me, so instead, I sat up until 3 am (lol, my parents don't know that - thank the stars that it's a weekend... xD) playing this Psych trivia game that they had where the top person on the leaderboard would win a prize pack which included a prop from filming!! Unfortunately, you needed a Facebook login to actually WIN the prizes, and since I don't have a Facebook (again, parents. Not that I would actually want one though, I mean, it's essentially the breeding ground for horrible grammar and pointless drama), it wouldn't let me win prizes. But I played as a guest anyway, hiding under the blankets on my bed in the dead of night. :P Also, since I wasn't logged in, it was giving me less points than the people who were logged even though I was answering all the questions correctly. Had I been logged in, however, I would have been in the top 5-10, cause I got the entire second done perfectly. :D
Civics is essentially a course on our government, how it's run, who runs it, and how to be a good citizen. Sounds amazing, right? :P It's a figurative community. We have to create the history, location, flag, anthem, charter, laws, weather, services offered, government, and a bunch of other things that I can't remember. And it's worth a lot of points, so I am sort of freaking out. :P Lol, yes, we have play-doh. It tastes so weird. (I ate it as a small child, don't judge me, I was, like, 3!)
We have two main libraries that we go to because 1.) we are officially registered at Library A, and 2.) Library B has so much better books, and it's closer. Plus it looks nicer. Since it is a REALLY long story of how we ended up being official members at A instead of B (not really, the township said that we were technically closer to A than B, but I don't really think that we are - anywho, that was like 10 years ago, so what do I know about it? xD), I'll just tell you the basics. B (the nice one that we usually go to) used to let us order books that they didn't have in their collection. If they didn't have, we could ask them to add it to their collection, and they would do it. For some reason, now because we are OFFICIALLY registered at A (the tiny library with really old books that smell funny), they won't let us order books. EVEN THOUGH WE'VE BEEN REGISTERED THERE FOR 10 YEARS AND HAVE BEEN GOING TO B THE ENTIRE TIME. So if we want a certain book, we either have to A.) Ask the cranky middle-aged librarians at B to use an inter-library loan, or B.) Ask the cranky elderly librarians at A to order the book. And by that time, we could have found a PDF for it online. :P But I still want to help out over the summer. :P At B, that is. I don't know if I could stay in A for too long. It smells really weird, like books from several centuries ago. xD
GAH, GRILLSSS. I DON'T UNDERSTAND THEM AT ALL!! I just don't!! I mean, why?? JUST WHY??? They don't make you look cool at all, they are just super strange and weird!! It looks like a an orthodontist's experiment gone wrong!! I JUST... GAH.. WHY.
Yeah, they are the main stars (ish, Donald not so much) of the movie. This is really random, but Gene Kelly looks SO much like my uncle, except with more hair. xD Whenever we watch the movie, it always makes me and my dad crack up because of the striking resemblance! And when my dad told him about it, he, my aunt, and cousins looked at us like we were crazy!! And in my head I'm thinking "Just look in a mirror!! Then look at the screen!! You have to be blind not to see it!!" It's hilarious though. xD
Gah, that movie. I seriously do not understand their reasoning behind it. It was like they had a really good thing going, and then they were just like:
GAH. WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT. ALIENS ARE NEVER THE ANSWER. NEVER!!! Excuse me while I weep in anger and frustration.
^Btw, that movie = amazing. It just is.^
Oh, I didn't know that he is a teacher! Yeah, he is probably going to be a love interest then, cause I don't know if anyone could stomach Clara and 13 shamelessly hitting on one another like she and 12 did. That would just be horrible. I get chills just thinking about it. :P
This is really weird, for some reason, I really didn't like Despicable Me. It came out at around the same time as Megamind, and I remember EVERYONE telling us that Despicable Me was absolutely hilarious, but then when we saw it, it didn't even sort of meet our expectations. And we thought that Megamind looked pretty bad, but my little brother added it to the Netflix que anyway (he does that ALL the time - he will add what appears to be the lamest movie ever "just to see how it is", and it frustrates us to no end. Especially since he really isn't that little, I mean, he's only 2 years younger than me), and we saw it and it was absolutely hilarious!! All of the characters are great, and the voice acting is wonderful!! Plus Tina Fey. :3
Yes, she is just awesome.
Gosh, sometimes I wish that I had the natural funniness of someone like her. I wonder what it would be like, to be hilarious for a day. :P Lol, I saw this GIF and I was like "Finally!! Someone understands me!!" xD
Mmm, I was going to tell you - there is only one Psych episode left. :'( The last one was absolutely HILARIOUS, though, so it makes up for it. xD It was another horror one directed by James Roday, so it was epic. If you liked Tuesday the 17th and Dual Spires, you'll love this one. There were zombies, and a lot of scenes where Gus was screaming. xD And a ton of inside jokes!!
^I was cracking up so hard at that part! The three-hole punch joke is the really random, weird joke that the cast and crew always laugh at (it was one of those things that you had to be there to find funny), but in bloopers they all go crazy and start losing it when someone mentions it, so it's funny to watch^
I don't think that he was drunk, apparently he's dyslexic. Still, though, that is so embarrassing. I don't know what I would do if that happened. Probably dig a hole and die in it. :P Haha, I saw a funny tumblr post, where there was a photo of John Travolta creepily looking at Benedict Cumberbatch during the awards and people were saying stuff like "Oh my gosh, he looks like a stalker" and then the one person was just like "He's picking his next name-victim." xD
Haha, yeah, they set a record with most retweets and crashed Twitter by accident with that photo!! xD
Haha, that is so weird that you just saw it as well!! I liked it a lot, and it followed the book very well!! I didn't really like the books, though. They felt odd and disjointed, and I couldn't connect with Katniss at all. In the movies, it's a lot easier. I really hated Mockingjay, though, so I am interested to see what they do with the movies. I mean, the plot was that they broke her out of the games so that she could shoot commercials!! I mean, how desperate for a plot can you get??? Gah, I just really did not like that book. But that doesn't mean that I won't see the movies!!! :P I mean, they have Jennifer Lawrence in them, for crying out loud!! I love the way that she is so honest and open and says what the heck is on her mind. It's hilarious!! For example, Exhibit A:
Gah, Miley... I... She.... I don't know what to say. Honestly, I think that it is just sad.. I mean, smoking pot on stage at an awards ceremony with teens watching?? And sadly, that's one of the tamest things that she's done. I'm not even going to mentioned the "Robin Thicke" incident (side-note: I hate that guy). And it's really just sad the way that her family keeps defending her. I mean, even her dad is defending her "Wrecking Ball" video under the guise that it's "art"! I mean, what kind of father lets his daughter do that, let alone supports it?? It's really just tragic that a family would operate that way...
Okay, so this is a fairly late reply but I have an excuse: namely, my cousin's wedding. I've had literally no time for the wiki(s) and I shouldn't even be typing this as I am sincerely pressed for time so there won't be that many GIFs in this post and we're leaving for London at 10:30 but then I realised this: this week was the last ever episode of Psych. And by not replying to you, I haven't given you the chance to tell me that it was the last ever episode of Psych this week and therefore fan-girl about it and also talk about the Psych after party thingy. And becuase you are a Psycho at a very intense level, I'm giving you that chance becuase otherwise I'd cry tears of pain and anguish if I robbed you of that honour. And breathe.
Aww, I feel sorry for all you poor American citizens. Our Daylight Saving's Time starts tonight, which will be weird because we'll be on the road up to London then so we'll be driving at midnight and then an hour later it will suddenly be 2:00, as if we were caught in an epic time warp on the road. Hehe, I know what you mean since I already have difficulty rolling out of bed in the morning and that was with the extra hour of sleep in the first place so Spring/Summer mornings are hell. I also really, really hate the day after the clocks change because we always miss a few clocks and it is SO INCREDIBLY CONFUSING when the time changes.
Whoo! Psych-a-thon! Did it show a whole season's worth of episodes or just all of Season 8 up till then? Yesh, my parents would never let me watch anything for that long at that hour, but it sounds like you had a heck of a lot of fun besides. All I can say is you're lucky you can get to your computer/laptop/tablet without your parents knowing becuase our computer is in the living room down the creaky stairs from my bedroom. That sounds like a truly awesome competition to partake in though I believe that Facebook is cheating you from the points you deserve. And was the prop prize a pineapple by any chance? YAY! In the top 5 - 10 is awesome!!!
This deserves the a separate paragraph because I'm happy : THANK YOU! the social networks are something that I don't agree with, due to sheer amount of status updating for no particular reason, hash-tagging unnecessarily and also the amount of fake creeps online who entrap people into stupid situations. And the drama, as you pointed out.
Civics sounds....intense? And play-doh tasting too? Ehehe, I'm not going to judge, I think a childhood is only complete whence you have eaten something you absolutely by no means should have :D
Haha, I think that you're library situ is fairly amusing as is your registration situation (that rhymes!! Kinda.) too :) But it's for books in the end so by going through all the library issues, you're fighting for the right to read in an over-exaggarated way. We have to pay to have stuff brought down into our sparsely stocked library so PDFs of books are usually my thing :) Or borrowing off of my friends too. No, I'm completely the opposite - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the smell of old books :)
Yesh! Grills are awful and it annoys me that they are becoming more and more on trend. I also, for the first time ever, saw those baggy bagy trousers in real life and my jaw dropped as I literally U-turned out of there. I don't know what the world's coming to.
I haven't actually seen Les Mis which may shock you into silence, but Eddie Redmayne is soooo cute and I love his cheekbones.
Yeaah, Capaldi and Clara would be odd, but his relationship with River may be a bit more... watchable.
But Despicable Me is brilliant!!! It has an epic line in it that just fits into every fan-girl's life:
I get what you mean though - the hype around it didn't make it as brilliant as I thought it would be but it was brilliant. I was the opposite again - I didn't think I'd like Megamind but he is so adorably blue and big-headed.
THAT IS A BRILLIANT GIF.
Hehe, as an ode to Travolta's name mix-up, there's a site that lets you 'Travolitify your name' so you see what your name would be if John Travolta as to say it. Mine was Tia Keezy, which is so far from my actual name, I was laughing for five minutes afterwards..Haha, I love tumblr so much - that sounds like an awesome picture.
I agree with all of that - the books felt really bitty and disjointed and it kept switching between the love track and the adventure track. The thing that annoys me about Mockingjay is the film adaptation - it's going to be in two parts which is like WHY?? Especially becuase the first part of the book is basically her pining after Peter and his health whilst shooting adverts. And can I just say - FINNICK ODAIR? It's like his death just happened so Suzanne Collins could make her readers weep, without any reason whatsoever. There was no build-up. Nothing. But I too will still see the films. And yes, Jennifer Lawrence is awesome.
I think those elipses are the best way to describe Miley. Wow, the Robin Thicke incident rendered me entirely speechless, because that's when I fuly realised she went from this:
Oh my God, how could any father condone that? How do people view Wrecking Ball as art? It irritates me that people view it as beautiful due to the apparent 'symbolism' of evrything in the video, as said by Miley. I quote - she said that the wrecking ball symbolises how Liam Hemsworth destroyed her life, the hammer sybolises pain and her licking the hamer shows how she enjoys the pain.
Sorry that I am responding so late, I have literally only been able to get on for a 3 minute gap on my little brother's Nook each day!!! I wasn't able to use my laptop that I share with my older brother because he was using it for homework and whatnot all week and I wasn't able to get on, since it was always in his clutch. :P Also, it's been a really depressing week for me. :P My iPod went through the washing machine last week and even though I put it in rice, it died. I could have SWORN that it wasn't in my pants (or trousers, as you would say :P)!! I remember watching Frozen, and then taking my iPod and putting it on my dresser. And not touching it. 2 day later, it was in the wash...
A wedding!! *squee* What fun!! I have never been to a wedding for several reasons, mainly being that I don't know anyone getting married. :P The finale was AMAZING. It was seriously the BEST finale for a TV show ever. They wrapped everything up so nicely and it was amazing. :3 It was so epic!! I almost cried, but I didn't, solely for the sake of not getting mocked by my family. :P
They just played the cast's favorite episodes, so it wasn't like I really missed too much. :P If I want to, I can just watch them on Netflix and everything will be fine. :P The afershow was actually rather boring, because they took WAY too many dang commercial breaks. It's so frustrating!! Haha, yeah, it is kinda funny the way I can do that. xD My only complaint is that when you are under the covers with a computer, it gets REALLY warm. Like, a fire is about to light. xD I have no clue what props they were, but that would be awesome if they gave out pineapples!! Speaking of which, I saw some pineapple trees for sale today. It was so weird, cause I have never seen them before!
Exactly!! I feel like the only person my age who hasn't hopped on the media bandwagon! It kinda scares me the way that you can just look up a person's name and get all of the things related to them.. It's so stalkery. If anything, I would get a Twitter so that I could "stalk" my favorite celebrities, but even then, I wouldn't attach it to my actual name and address and whatnot. :P
^that's me, stalking them from the wilds of the internet :P^
Haha, yeah, it is an interesting class. We finished up our community project, and we got a 100, so that was awesome.
Old books smell AMAZING!! Actually, any book smells amazing. Especially bookstores. Oh, they smell like heaven. :3 I love them so much!! :D
Ah, you finally witnessed the pants spawned from idiocy in public. :P I have seen people wear them on the street while in the car, but have never actually been walking along and seen someone wearing them. I would immediately head in the other direction and attempt to avoid all possible contact with them, lest some of their idiocy wear off onto me (as if it would...). :P
It's really long, but really good. And they sing throughout the ENTIRE movie. Literally. There are only a few spoken lines and they are sort of sung/spoken. :P Yes, I agree. His cheekbones are amazing. xD What is it with British people and cheekbones?? Is there some sort of Cheekbone Academy that you guys are hiding over there?? xD
Speaking of England, my uncle (who lives in Henley [I have no clue where that is or how close it is relative to you xD]) met the Queen, Prince William, and Prince Harry on Monday!!!! I know, you probably think that I am making this up. xD I'm not. He has been living in England for the last 13 to 15-ish years and is a citizen. He is the vice-president on the board of a school over there (which I literally didn't know until my dad told me 2 days ago), and apparently, the royal family visited the school on Monday! And because he is on the board, he got to meet them!! I am still freaking out and, literally, the first thing I said was "We can use the 6 degrees of connection to connect us to the cast of the Avengers now!!" xD I clearly have my priorities straight. :P
xD I did love the "fluffy" part. It's been a REALLY long time since I've seen that movie, though, so I don't remember that much of it except that it wasn't very funny at the time. :P Yes, that is an awesome GIF. xD I love that movie so much!! I also just saw Frozen recently, and to be honest, it was nowhere near as good as I thought that it would be. I thought that it was going to be so much better than it was, because everyone said that it was AMAZING, but it didn't really live up to my expectations.
xD That is a brilliant GIF! Haha, I have seen the "Travolitfy Your Name" thingy before. My name is 'Russell Lopeez' apparently. xD Even though I am a girl. xD
I completely agree!! It felt like Suzanne Collins completely just threw in the towel and didn't know how she was going to end it. I can't understand why they would split it up into 2 movies, nothing really happened over the course of the book! It's going to be unbearable to watch if they don't stuff some extra plot into it... YES!! Finnick's death just felt like a poorly done plot device used only to keep the readers reading the book (which doesn't even make sense!!!). I will still see the movies, though, because Jennifer Lawrence. :3 No other reason is necessary. :P
I know... It's tragic, really. I swear, something is not right with her. I just don't know what happened. I didn't watch the Disney channel while she was on it, but from what I saw, she seemed like every other Disney star - slightly annoying, can't act, but mostly harmless. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that all of this would happen.
Her quote about Wrecking Ball is disturbing, it really is. To me, the wrecking ball symbolizes the drugs and crazy things that she is doing right now to herself, the hammer symbolizes the object of torture people want to hit themselves with after seeing her music video, and her licking the hammer is really just side effects from all the drugs she's been smoking. :P That's how my sarcastic brain analyzed it anyway. :P
No problem - your week sounds amazingly busy - aren't you on your Easter Holiday yet? Yeah, I might be late at replying a few times since, as of May, I am officially on exam mode and I don't think my parents would allow me anywhere near Wikia in general until it's all over :( Haha, yeah I swear all handheld electronic devices are part of major techno-suicide conspiracy in which they all develop minds of their owns and end up in the washing machine. Or down the plughole resulting in anguished few minutes where your hand scrapes at the insides of the pipes and then your hand feels contiminated FOREVER :3
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You've never been to a wedding! Woooow. I almost envy you, purely because all the weddings I've been to have been Asian (side-effects of having a Bangladeshi family) and they have been the most boring thing imaginable. You may think I'm over-exaggerating but really, they are: as guests, you go there and sit at your consigned table until the food comes. And then Bengali people operate on (this is an actual thing) Bengali time, meaning that if the food was billed to come at 1pm, it would actually come out at 3pm. At the earliest. However, said food is the upside of the weddings since it makes up about 70% of the actual wedding itself, so the food is more the centre of focus than the happy couple :S But it's food, so I'm not complaining
THIS particular wedding was brilliant however, because I am the cousin of the bride so I actually had something to do than just sitting and staring into oblivion. And I was stuck on camera duty so I actually had something to do other than being forced into the family photos and smiling widely whislt being hugged by various people I don't know. But there were 3 separate cakes so I was like:
YAY! I'm glad that it didn't end appallingly which would have given Psychos (I can't get over how awesome that fan-name is - it's like, could they have chosen a TV show title that would set up fans so perfectly?) a serious complex due to the lack of closure. I probably would have/ WILL do cry 'cause I can't deal effectively with endings. Onto Psych endings, however - YIN 3 IN 2D!!! I watched it yesterday I think and can I just say that the people who come up with these plots are really clever? Kinda psychotic but still clever? I love, love, love the whole Yin/Yang thing even though it creeps the living crap out of me and YANG KILLED HER FATHER!!! I think I may have started hyperventilating by that point.
^love the show. 'Tis awesome and amazing and I'm mad at myself for currently not keeping up with the episodes.
Aww, that's sweet. I can't stand ad breaks but I love adverts, er commercials, because I love watching how they becomes more and more ridiculous as time goes and on. For example:
^This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen in my life. I actually hate this advert with a strong passion so I force myself to watch it whenever it comes on just so I can be all like "I Hate THIS."^
Eeek, I wouldn't be able to have a laptop under the covers, purely because I'm paranoid about killing my eyes and the light kills me at 1am in the morning. Huh, I've never seen pineapple trees either, now you come to mention it...
Yes, I've kind of been scared off the social network craze due to all the talks we have at school about people being groomed and stalked and various other ill-fated issues. And, yeah, also because there are people creepy enough out there who could easily use your profile to locate you. Yeeaah,I think I manage to stalk everyone I like without making a Twitter account, which is worrying :S However, my biggest beef with social networks is the incessant need to take selfies, and that too in that horrid pouty. I admit, I did get tumblr a month ago because I finished the Shades of London book series and couldn't cope with the feels so I had to send the author a post asking "WHYYYYYYYY???", but then I got a poSt last week saying that there had been a security breach and that I should probably change my password and that my account has been very very active even though I haven't been on it since I cyber-stalked the author. This is why I hate social media.
OHMYGOD JACK SPARROW! I LOVE HIM!
Enough said, Methinks :)
WHOO! I'm glad you got 100 in your little Rchie town - just out of curiosity, what did you name it?
Yes, I saw them in public. And now, because we've started to rant about current trends, can I also bring up the recently gone (thank GOD) hair disaster that was incessant backcombing? It's like girls brush their hair so it looks like they don't brush their hair and looks severely damaged in the first place. Why? Just why?
Yeah. I've been treated to my best friend just randomly singing "Jean Valjean." at random moments of my life. Eddie Redmayne was my first ever tv crush BECAUSE of his cheekbones. Pfft, of course there's a Cheekbone Academy over in Britain - it's mandatory for all teeangers and is basically a class where we look at various facial structures and sigh and swoon over their cheeks. And then we swoon some more. I strongly suggest America takes it up :D
^What we get assessed on in Cheekbone Academy^
Okay, so I didn't eve know that Henley was in England so no judging. But oh my gawsh! I would love to meet the queen - I didn't even know I was so patriotic until the marriage of Kate and Wills where I just died with excitement. Which is kind of sad but I was like "Arghhh! They are our future!". Oooh, I envy your uncle and the 6 degrees of connection you have to the Avengers now. (They're 6 degrees more than me so be proud, and of course you're priorities are straight!)
FROZEN IS AMAZING AND I LOVE KRISTOFF AND SVEN AND OLAF! And, whilst I absolutely love Romantic Movies/Book/Everything, it was nice to have a film which focused on a different kind of love and one that left you feeling happy even with Elsa being without a romantic interest. But again, I see what you mean with all they hype - it wasn't drop-dead amazing as everyone says it was. AND I called Hans being evil.
Yeah - it's annoying how pretty much every film Fandom is now following Harry Potter and splitting the last book into two films. But Harry Potter was AMAZING and I really don't think Mockingyay will be unless they add stuff like crazy. YES!!! (Hehe, beat you with exclamation marks by one) and Prim's death was just like, "Well this is a death free-for-all now, isn't it?" Though admittedly, her death had more meaning than Finnick's which happened way too fast and he didn't meet his baby and I hated the whole thing altogether. And Gale just got shoved off to another district so Peeta and Katniss could get together so that whole relationship had NO. CLOSURE.
Haha, I much prefer your version as to what Wrecking Ball symbolises - what idiot goes around licking 'pain', putting ideas into teenagers minds that pain should be embraced by wearing provocative clothing and smoking pot? I just can't believe how some girls use her as a role-model for female empowerment and independence.
Completely off-topic: have you been keeping up with the trial of Oscar Pistorius? If so, are you inclined in anyway to either believe him to be guilty or not guilty?
How do you do redirects for pages? I'm asking because I've noticed that quite a few hyperlinks of the word "barrier" don't go to any page, because the hyperlink says "Barrier" or "Magic barrier" instead of "Ferryport Landing Barrier." I'm wondering if I can somehow redirect "barrier" or "magic barrier" to "Ferryport Landing Barrier."
No problem! I literally use Google for everything when I don't understand anything about Wiki (which is about 95% of the time!) Also, congrats on getting your badges - I was glued to the screen when I first joined the Wiki, just to get the badges!
