FACE IT, I AM NOT STUDIOUS: EPISODE 27 (IN WHICH I AM DEFEATED BY A MASTERMIND)

A MUSICAL MASTERMIND THAT IS!!!!

Hans Zimmer, you wily scamp.

This kid's just trying to learn about the Incas, and you're all "Hey, I wrote some of the greatest film scores that you know, and some of them are in your favourite movies. So while you try and remember what a "Uwiha Ch'Uyay" is, I'm just going to slip some of my hit tracks into this playlist. We cool, bro?"

We'd be totally cool if I knew Hans Zimmer and he called me 'bro'. I wouldn't even care about his obvious confusion of genders, the guy's a genius in other respects. Also, if he wouldn't write songs that hijack my limited focusing skills by making my ears perk up and then vividly imagine Simba finally figuring out his friggin' life after an evening getting smoked in the head by a mandrill with a stick and then talking to his dad in the stars and then racing lithely across the great savanna to bring justice back to Pride Rock.

I can't even apologize for that run-on sentence. It's The Lion King, you guys. It's just SO GOOD!


 In case you're not me and don't have this sucker saved on your computer.
 I actually even have it on CD. You guys, I'm such a hipster right now it hurts.



For the Record: "Uwiha Ch'Uyay" is an Andean sheep festival.
WHO KNEW!?!
Probably not Hans Zimmer, that's who. Sorry bro, that was mildly low blow.




PROBABLY NOT NEWS TO THE HISTORICALLY MINDED...

Long story short, Googling "Stalin sexy time" reveals that Joseph Stalin had nice (albeit slightly crazy) eyes. And a hipster ascot. Go Joe.
WHO KNEW!?!


"Hey Girl"

NO THIS IS AWFUL ON SO MANY LEVELS

It's just... flaunting my personal mirthiness. I hate that. But I'm going to do it anyway.

Six months ago today a cute boy asked me if I would like to be his girlfriend and I said yes.
Yeah, so that's still happening.

Even though this is also still happening:

PS. My best friend drew a picture of me as a ghost the other day. Spot on.

WHAT NIGHTMARES ARE MADE OF! (NAMELY SUGAR, FLOUR AND DELICIOUS)

I finally finished the cupcakes at 11:30.

About a quarter of the way through I started with the "DEAR GOD WHAT WAS I THINKING!?"
I still haven't got an answer, just sayin'.

The kiwi ones (there were two and a half) actually taste pretty good! But they're a little bit green. Not green enough to be all "Oh Hai, I'm a green cupcake ON PURPOSE", but just green enough to be all "I'm delicious, please overlook my slightly off-putting colour to enjoy me."

"You guys can't tell, can you? Right? I look fine?"

 When it was over at last, I wanted to take a picture to document the quantity and quality of all 4 batches (*note: it would have been 2 batches if I had more than one muffin tin. BUT I DON'T). I took some pictures. As I was taking them I kindof laughed thinking they looked like an army. And they maybe were mobilizing to overthrow me.

"We never forget"

I flashed back to when I said that eating cupcakes is my favourite part of making them.

I couldn't sleep! I keep thinking what if I accidentally baked cupcakes of VENGEANCE!!!!!

What if I'm overreacting?

Because that never happens ever. HAhahaha!



AND HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Have fun! Get silly! Don't get mauled by cupcakes!

LIVE UPDATE!

It's taking sooooooo long! THERE ARE SO MANY CUPCAKES.

YOU GUYS! IT'S CUPCAKE TIME!

I'm such a terrible photographer it's almost funny
Not quite yet actually, sorry to get you all pumped up like my new kicks (I legitimately bought new sneakers today) These are they them? they -------------------------->

Anyway, I have to clean the kitchen before I can bake. Then I'll bake and have to clean the kitchen again. My favourite part about cupcakes has to be the cleaning up (I'm lying, my favourite part is eating them). I'm making a whole bunch tonight for my coworkers tomorrow since it's St. Patrick's day and instead of getting loaded at 11am we're all going to be selling fridges and pillows and bras to old ladies or something. I don't know. I don't pay attention all the time. Regardless, everyone likes when I bake and everyone hates when I run out of treats early. So I'll make more this time. I can't give you numbers, just, like, a whole bunch.

AND I bought kiwis today! And I have strawberry cream cheese. So I'm thinking I will do an experiment in which I make a whole slew of vanilla cupcakes then when I'm down to the last of the batter I'll turn it into a kiwi thing and then ice it with strawberry cream cheese icing. I have a suspicion that it will work out terribly, but that rarely stops me from doing things (especially harmless things like cupcake baking). What's the worst that could happen.

If it fails, I have a bag of Birthday Cake Oreos. NBD.

Just kidding. IT'S BASICALLY THE BIGGEST DEAL OF THE MONTH! IT'S BLOWING MY MIND HOW MUCH I LOVE MR CHRISTIE AND HIS FRIENDS AT NABISCO KRAFT RIGHT NOW (for the record I totally thought Nabisco had the whole Oreo thing tight in their cookie-fatted fists. I checked. I was wrong. Who knew!?!?!?)

Sorry, I thought I got that all out of my system like, 4 hours ago. Again, I was wrong. I seem to be forming a habit!

I'll let you know how it goes. Shortly.

"AWW MAN.... NOW THERE'S SPAGHETTI ALL OVER THE FLOOR"

I shouted that no more than 15 minutes ago.
You guys, today has not been good to me.
I mean, sure yeah, I woke up this morning alive, so that's good, but breathing is strugglesome (I JUST MADE A GREAT WORD!), my allergies are giving me migraines, my allergy medicine is honestly jacked full of caffeine so I'm not sleeping, I have a midterm that involves math tomorrow (please, just, no...) and I'll be at work instead of in the sun/in bed until late this evening. On my way home from school I did that thing again where I had to pee kindof on my way to the bus stop and if I'd just gone in to my boyfriend's house to pee on my way it would have been fine,
but I didn't.
And then the bus was late and I couldn't go back to their house to pee because I knew the bus would arrive as soon as I did! It was basically almost a disaster.

AND I got hooked on Dance Moms.

Just terrible.

In better news I might have some more doodles tomorrow if the asthma/allergies/astronomy doesn't kill me first.

WHAT I WANT TO BE DOING 92% OF THE TIME


So much more fun than studying

7.3.12

WORTH AN A+, AT LEAST

I'm supposed to be summarizing articles for class tomorrow. But guys, come on, they're pretty dry. One of them said "ethnopolitical" about 16 times on the first page and I said "Hmmm, this isn't going to be happening."
I was correct!
The other one isn't quite such a hard read, but I thought of lyrics halfway through page 5 and I got my ukulele on page 7 and then I started writing a song instead of summarizing. It's nowhere near done, but the lyrics are prime my friends. If I could hand in this song for marks, it would dazzle my prof into giving me glowing reviews and a 95 in the whole course. Well, maybe if it was about the Legacy of Mesoamerica... which it's not.
But it is adorable and that should count for something.

Proof to be posted when both summary and song are completed.
Could be a while, folks.

APPARENTLY, I HAVE A COLD; BUT IT FEELS WAY WORSE

"I'm a goat and I'm going to kick you in the chest... FOR A WEEK!"
