Mind you, it still is kind of rough, but it'll have to do for now until I get some more free time. Also, did anyone else notice the horizontal menu bar? No telling when I'll actually get those pages up and running, but until then there is the Chronic Insanity page!! Horray for not procrastinating for once!

Seriously. I can handle the Jonas Brothers. But COME ON. MILEY CYRUS IS A FREAKIN BAD EXAMPLE.
I mean, let's face it. She's like the next Brittany Spears. So what if her half brother is a singer in Metro Station. So what if she has her own show on Disney.
It doesn't change the fact that she's made a bee line of bad decisions. It started (or populated) with her photoshoot with vogue, and then escalated with all these myspace whore style pictures. Yes, all you delusional myspace addicts. You know the ones I'm talking about.
Those pictures that, if your parents ever saw, they would kill you over. Luckly for Miley's dad they're all over the net thanks to the wonderful hacker TrainReq (props to the master!).
It only goes to prove that she's a slutty little skank that doesn't deserve to have Disney on her resume.
And Miley wonders why her and Nick aren't together anymore. Maybe it's because she's a little slut and deep down she knows that Demi Levato and Selina Gomez are better than her.
The pictures I featured on this post (courtesy of TrainReq) were just the tip of the GINORMOUS iceburg. Also, let's just say they were the less crude ones too.

I woke up today, I went straight to the bathroom, then I got a chocolate chip muffin.
AAAAANNNNNDDDD then I went to the computer. Fascinating right? I thought so too.
I just thought it was kinda sad that I went to the computer, instead of picking up a book. What kind of person have I turned into??
I used to read like crazy, and now all of a sudden it's like I'm burnt out on books! ah oh well.
Cleaning the house was first on the agenda of things to do today, but we've already accomplished that, so I think I'm just going to make a comic.... for gURL.com!!

Ok, so I went to the library for my regular shift.
We had the Scholastic Bookfair come by for the week, and sadly we didn't sell that much.
I mentioned it to my dad and he just said that it was because of our sucky economy. He said that he used to be able to fill up our little Toyota for $30, but now it costs $60.
Parents are saving up thier money for clothes and school supplies for their kids instead of spending thier money on little things from the bookfair. It's a sad, but harsh truth. Our nation is entering into the begginings of an economic depression.
We really honestly do need Barack Obama for president so he can clean up the all the crap that the Bush administration has got us in. I know, I know. I'm too young to know anything. Bleh.
I'm just glad that I've got smart parents that knew this was coming. This is why we don't have a gas guzzling SUV right now.

If you want to support my crazy cracked up friends, under the video is a code. I'd be mighty appreciative if you slapped it on everything except your milf of a mom's butt.

I sat down. I put my bag down. I began my long winded speech of why I had to visit the powder room.
Me: Well, the reason why I absolutely HAVE to go to the bathroom is because, frankly my bra is getting a bit uncomfortable and I might have to adjust the strap, and sometimes I have to pull it over my boob so "certain" parts don't show.
Also I think I have to change my tampon, because the box tells you to do so every four hours to prevent overflows, and I would rather not walk around with a menstrual stain on my crotch.
Oh yeah, I think I might need to re-apple some eyeliner, either that or wipe it off so as not to look like a french hooker. And, since I'm a girl, I'm going to stand in front of the mirror and scrutinize my midsection, and thighs because ONE my midsection really needs to be more toned and TWO because my thighs are too toned and look like man thighs.
Lastly I'm going to do a once-over on my outfit, knowing that I'm purposefully not going to stare at my hair because it is always a gross and hopeless mess, and secretly wish deep down that I had Kate Moss's slim frame instead of my c-cup boobs.
And of course, I'll do all of that without ever actually pissing in the toilet, because everyone knows that when girls go to the bathroom, it's really just an excuse to see if their bodies have changed any in the last fifteen minutes.
After that long winded explanation I think I scarred the poor person for life. I blame the media and Ashton Kutcher. I would have never done that if I didn't spend all my childhood watching Jackass and various other prank shows. If only I had a camera to capture that person's expression as I poured the innermost thoughts of my brain into their hands.
B: So... I wanted to talk to you about traveling.
Me: Why? You fixin to pack off and disappear from the continent?
B: Well my dad is going to go back to the Philippines, and I want to go with him.
Me: When are you leaving?
B: I'm coming down to Texas next week, and then I'm leaving. It was a spur of the moment type thing.
Me: Soooooooo is this continental move permanent, semi permanent, removable with water......?
B: *laughs* Only removable with hot shower water.
Me: No, seriously. Why the sudden move?
B: Dad wants to move, mom doesn't. Lots of fights, not that much love. I wanna get in touch with the home land.
Me: Why the Philippines? I thought your dad was the Japanese one.....
B: It's cheaper in the Philippines. And as far as I know it's going to be permanent with dad. I think mom might end up coming over eventually. They really don't want a divorce, it's just dad it tired of the States. He wants some non Obama/McCain air to breathe.
Me: Oh. I guess that means no more phone calls eh?
B: Sorry. I didn't think about that..... Hey, they'res always the Internet!
Me: Thank Bhudda for Bill Gates.
B: Yeah well I gotta go pack now. Mom wants me to say bye to all the family.
Me: Oh Gawd.
B: Yeah I know. Between her and dad they have about a dozen or more cousins within 50 miles of where we live.
Me: I'm sorry. I should hang up now, that way you'll be able to get started on saying goodbye to all those asians and their antique stores.
B: See you soon. And stay away from motorcycles and---
Me: Motorcycles. Got it. Hanging up now.

I must say, I've searched long and hard for the perfect web launcher.
It's been a long and fruitless journey but I think I might have stumbled upon something worthwhile. The wonderful program is called Opera, and if you haven't already heard of it I recommend that you check it out.
It's super fast and easy to manage, and also has a wonderful speedial program that I LOVE. It's totally user friendly, which means you can choose custom skins for it and make the whole thing in your favourite color.
Personally, I'm a fan of the mint green. Also, it has user submitted wigets! My favourite of course being the language translator which is actually quite accurate.
Now all you FireFox users, don't go out and toss your programs. FireFox is still necessary for full page screenshots because unfortunately I don't think they have that program on Opera, but that's only a simple glitch. You can still use photoshop to take regular screenshots and such.
Anyways, the speedial program allows you to instantly go to your favorite web pages in an instant. It's like your phone, but cooler. Oh yeah, for all those who are still in the stone ages and use IE, I suggest you upgrade! You're missing out on a great program if you don't.

My sisters and I were shopping with my uncle and Kimberly bought something she wasn't supposed to buy, and I should have been smart enough to say no, but instead I urge her on to buy it.
Does that make me a bad big sister? Or just one that doesn't pay attention? I honestly wasn't thinking, and totally forgot that my parents ever told me that I couldn't purchase that item. However, even though I didn't purchase it myself, the fact that my sister did was enough to set my parents off the edge. I took the full blow of the punishment, which was only a week without computer or telephone access. Luckly I got off on a light punishment (i've had worse).
But all that brings me to the fact that I don't wanna be the big sister that is overbearing, or a total control freak. I'd rather cover for them than them get in trouble.
I'm protective, but I figure as long as my sister isn't half as knowledgeable as I was at her age then I'm good. Overall being responsible sucks, but we all have to deal with it I guess...... unless you're like the baby of the family.
Ok, so over my grounding period I've been doing a lot of thinking.
A lot of things have been accomplished too. I've finished a total of 10 books in one week, and I've completely finished re-doing my room. And yes, I now have stuffed animal taxidermy hanging from my walls.
But I've been thinking a lot about this tiny little blog, and how it's grown into something that I've come to love. Everyday I wake up with a goal in mind, and for those who know me personally that's a major accomplishment. Everyday I wake up and wonder, "What will I blog about today?"
Also, while I as grounded I've come to appreciate how important this blog was to me. I almost went insane by the thought of not being able to log on and complete my daily ritual, which has become the only constant and dependable thing in my life.
So after a long while of thought, I've decided to consider buying a domain name. Since I'm too young for a credit card it'll be hard to manage, but oh well. I'll work a way around it.
Oh well, lol lets get on to the last video! I particularly like this one because it's one of my favorites from Weezer :)
Ok, so this post was scheduled do to the fact that I was going out of town but now I'm not. Just go check out my blog for why I'm not going... >.< style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">

Ahh, it's sad that this series must end tomorrow; I must say that I had fun taking care of this blog.
Ok, here's the second to last video selected for the Grounded Series #6!
(oopsie: I was trying to find the actual official video on Youtube, but every one of them had the 'embed code' disabled. I'm not playing, go check for yourself! So, unfortunately this video will only have a picture of the band with the song playing. If you want to watch the actual video just click here: Pork And Beans)

Hey, this is Bekka typing here. Just as Spazz explained above, she is grounded for the remainder of the week. Which includes no internet and/or phone privileges. Therefore, I have been enlisted as a temporary substitute to continue her daily postings :] Basically, this Grounded series will include some awesome YouTube videos selected specifically by Spazz herself! So, here's the first one!
Welcome to the Grounded Series brought to you by Bekka!

Beware, this song has hilarious lyrical content and reminds me of a future version of my little sister Kimberly. Yes, the cat's out of the bag. My sister would totally dump a guy as cute as that.
Anyways, my favourite part is around the 2:30 mark of the song where he describes his Ex. It made me think of a lot of people at my school....haha they know who they are. Anyways, enjoy.
Friday, July 11, 2008
Well, this weekend I'm off to my grandparent's place, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to do my annual daily post. Oh well, maybe I can get on the computer at her house.
Anyways, we're going to be visiting the Tiger Refuge, which of course means I'll be able to see all those cute and prettyful tigers. Also, I heard there was a white tiger there! How cool is that?
On Sunday we're going to be going to a Baby Shower for my soon to be little brother. The doctors want him to come around August 4th, but Melissa is currently just trying to hold him in another week so his lungs will be fully developed. Let's just say we're not going to be surprised if he comes early. He's already super heavy, has a large head, and kicks inside Melissa's belly like an alien monster.
I can't wait to see my ginger baby brother fresh from the hospital with that brand new baby smell. Mmmmmm sanitary!!!

Ah, again I'm back home from my terrible Thursday shift at the local public library. Ok, so maybe I'm being a little over dramatic, but I've got to admit that working alone sure is boring.
This is the second Thursday that I've had to work on my own, and I had to resort to singing to myself to keep myself sane while shelving all the little kid books.
Not to mention the two songs I kept singing were Shiksa, and Wow I can get Sexual Too, which are both by Say Anything. Definitely not the best songs to sing while working in the children's section.
I would think that I was by myself and start singing under my breath, and then some little kids would come by and give me weird looks, and I would be all "Hey, I'm not the one wearing a Yo Gabba Gabba shirt."
Also, have I mention how lovely I think Max Bemis's voice is? Gawd I love his vocals!!!
Wednesday, July 9, 2008
Ok, So I'm going to be honest. I don't really like this picture of Ed and Bella.
Edward of course, looks absolutely fine, it's just Bella that bugs me. Her make up makes her look ugly, and her face was shot at the wrong angle. Call me a critic, but you've got to admit that her face does look a little weird in that picture.
However, her hair and dress looks very pretty, and even though she's not the person I wanted to play Bella in the movie, I've got to admit that she's grown on me.
Whomever did her make up seriously screwed up though.
Tuesday, July 8, 2008
Ok, so I have to admit that lately I've been more than lethargic this summer. Sad enough, everyday except for today I've never woken up before 9:00a.m. and actually stayed up without falling back asleep. Today however, I woke up at 5:30 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep. Weird right?
Haha, lately (sad enough) I've been obsessed with the Phelps twins, aka the Weasley twins from Harry Potter. Honestly, I thought I outgrew that phase of myself, but obviously I guess I was wrong. Haha, oh well. I guess it's kinda like a reoccurring obsession.
I don't know specifically why I like them.... maybe it's because they're British?
It's quite obvious to all my friends that I'm a sucker for accents. My gosh, if I had a US dollar for every guy with an accent that I had a slight obsession over I'd have enough money to buy my own fuel efficient car! And that's saying something, seeing as how all the car dealers are jacking up the prices on all their eco friendly vehicles.
Also, shout out to Bekka (or anyone else). Still looking for music? Check out the song Caught By the Fuzz by Supergrass. I don't know why, but lately that song has been playing on repeat in my head. Oh yeah, if you haven't already checked out the song Love Me Dead by Ludo, make note to do that.
Monday, July 7, 2008
Wow, saying that I wasn't anticipating this moment would be a complete and total lie. I'll be even happier when I reach my three hundred mark.
Not much is going to go into effect other than the fact that I'm probably just going to change my layout. So yes. As for my day, it was pretty uneventful.
No wait, my stepmom went to the hospital for her gallbladder. We don't know how she got all those gallstones, but she won't be able to have it removed until her baby is born. Then after that she has to get her tubes tide. Sounds fun right?
Anyways, as for the library it was pretty boring. Bekka was awesome enough to check out Ironside by Holly Black for me after I so stupidly left my card at home. Thank you again Bekka!
Yesterday, I finished Valiant by Holly Black. It was the single most raw book I've ever read. I've never read a book so raw and open like that before.
Valiant was a definite breath of fresh air. Anyone who enjoys reading dark goth slightly punk romance books should definitely check out her books.
Oh, yeah! I forgot to mention the first book in her fairytale series Tithe. Yet another great book. Did I mention she co-wrote the Spiderwick Chronicles? Yup, Holly Black is that cool.
Her resource page on her website is also very useful for young writers looking for tips and such on how to get started.
If you haven't guessed yet, Holly Black is my new favourite Author! Haha, so make sure to check her out in the near future. ALSO, I recently stumbled upon this little treasure trove of a blog that gave really great book reviews called 3 Evil Cousins.
Sunday, July 6, 2008
So yeah. That's what happens when you try to blog when you're half awake. Anyways, enjoy this tiny invasion of mine, and B's privacy. Haha, well it's not much, just some sleepy drabble.
B: So, have you decided on what you where going to do for your 200th post-a-versary?
Me: *sigh* Well seeing as how it's summer and all I think I'm just going to put up a celebratory banner, and go on with my daily blogging. Nothing special ya know.
B: Oh, well I guess I better cancel those flowers I was going to send you.
Me: Might as well.
Me: Wait, flowers? Are you serious? Jeez your such a sap.
B: You know, I was just trying to be nice.
Me: Sap. You are to good to be true. It's a wonder you don't have a bazillion friends.
B: If I had a bazillion friends then you wouldn't want to be friends with me anymore.
B: And anyways, I hate people, and I'm wayyyyy more antisocial than you.
Me: Then why are you on the phone?
B: Because it's unhealthy to keep to one's self for too long.
Me: Will you not marry me one day?
B: Sure, just as long as you won't sign a pre-nupt. Also, did you write those scripts yet?
Me: Um, maybe..... Hey, tell PeterBob I say hi K?
B: Why, you going to hang up on me?
Me: Yes, also I'm going to post this meaningless conversation on my blog.
B: Meaningless? Oh, your words are venom to my teenage heart. How I am most ardently infatuated with you.
Me: Uh huh. Whatever, try and make some new friends today ok?
B: How about I try and not make anymore women and children cry?
Me: Good enough. Bye mannnnn
B: Yeah ditto. Be safe.

Seriously. I have got to get some work done. It's not even funny how slow and late I've been on doing things.
Not only have I NOT drawn up the storyboard I've been wanting to do, I've neglected to take care of my stuffed animal predicament.
After say, 14 years of stuffed animal collecting I've run into the problem of where to keep them. Recently they've just been piled up in a corner of my room being ignored, but my stepmom has been bugging me to hang them up on my walls like fake and fluffy taxidermy.
Also, since her baby is coming, we need to make as much extra room as possible, and sadly my stuffed animals are taking up more room than a 500lb sumo wrestler. While I should be nailing them into my wall I've been reading, doodling, sleeping, and goofing off in any possible way.
Even though I despise going through my stuff, I'm going to go through all my knick knacks and decide what should be thrown away, and what should be sold on ebay. Well, to be honest I probably wouldn't mind going through my stuff If I didn't have so much CRAP.
On the bright side, I'll get to put my Bhudda on a different shelf.

If I'm correct, this is my 196th post, which of course means that in for more posts I will have reached my 200th post!
How exciting is that? Ok, so YOU may not think it's anything special, but for someone like me, who has trouble sticking to anything longer than a fruit roll up it's pretty darn impressive!
Anyways, I just got done with my shift at the library which was uneventful. I took my lil sis Kimmie with me. And just in case your wondering Bekka, she changed the spelling of her name yet again, but if your not, then I guess it wouldn't really matter to you.
Just another day of shelving books and dealing with horrible mothers who should never have been allowed to have sex, let alone birth multiple children. One mother was particularly snarky today. Heres how it went down:
Me: Excuse me ma'm, do you need any help finding a book?
Snarky lady: Huh? Do you work here lil missy? (looks me up and down w/ obvious distaste)
Me: (trying to smile politely) Yes ma'm I'm a teen volunteer. Do you need any assistance?
Snarky lady: (
Me: (still trying to smile) Er.... well there are a lot of popular books with girls in them..... could you be more specific please?
Snarky lady: Isn't it your job ta know all these books? Gosh I come to the library and they 'spect me ta know all the books that they have! (exasperated)
Me: Well, we have the American Girl books, Junie B. Jones, Magic Attic club, and many others. (don't mind the twitching, it's completely normal)
Snarky lady: What was that second one? Junie B. Ja- whateva... Yea that's the one my kid needs.
Me: (tries to not bang head on nearest object) Ok, well they should be right over there. Let me show you the correct section.
Snarky lady: Whateva... (looks for kid) MARSHAAAA!!!!
Well as it turns out all of the Junie B. Jones books were checked out..... Hooray for me. BTW, who names their kid Marsha and then looses them in the library?
Me: I'm sorry ma'm but the books are all checked out. You could put them on hold if you want....
Snarky lady: WHAT?! Why couldn't you just tell me that in the first place insteada wasting my time?? (storms off)
Me: I'm sorry. (not really)
People Like that lady make me loose all faith in mothers. Just because you have a vagina and you've started your period does not mean you're fit to be a mother. To be a mother, I think you've first got to be a decent person with some common people skills. Again, who the crap names their kid Marsha now a days? That's gotta be torture going through school with all those Brady Bunch jokes.

I hate those mofos who cry about being fat and then go home and eat like two buckets of ice cream and 40 twinkies.
Whenever I feel fat I go home and drink a V8 then go do fifty million crunches and push ups. Isn't that the logical way of dealing with appearance/weight issues?
And most of the time they're like morbidly obese, but they're not helping their cause by eating 12 big macs, plus the french fries.
It just makes me so angry when people complain, but then they don't even bother to help themselves. IF YOU THINK YOU'RE SO GDAMM FAT GO RUN A FRIGGIN MILE OR GET GASTRIC BYPASS.
I'm sorry if I come off as rude and pissy, but honestly. Would you enjoy sitting through an hour and a half of whining from a 250lb whale? Sorry again. I'm just going through a rough day and whining from other people makes me irritated. Especially when it comes from someone that doesn't know how to help them self because either they're too lazy, or the have no willpower.
