My 100th Post= not so epic..

This is my 100th post...which I probably think means I need to get a life...but really I do what I want. Baiscally what is new in my life is I have broken my computer and my face hurts.

Here is my plea for help:(non computer geeks may want to skip this)
So I was downloading music and I haven't had a virus in awhile so I pretty much deserved this one. So I got this virus which I think my virus software had found and gotten rid of. But there seems to be some residual problems. When I try and open for instance the internet, something pops up and I have to pick what I want to open it. Then it works. So I don't know if the virus deleted the connection or if I still have a virus(I'm scanning my computer for the billionth time) Any thoughts? If not a virus does anyone know how to fix this? Cause it also won't let me click the thing that says to chose to open such files that way everytime? Help!

My face hurts cause I got my wisdom teeth out. It actually only hurts on one side and is barely swollen at all. My cheeks are kind of chubby anyways so I just look especially chubby cheeked adorable haha. But I have been having super vivid and messed dreams. I blame the codeine. It makes me think there are actually things happeneing in my room but not in a bad scary way more in a tripped out weird kind of way.

So this is it pretty much for what has been happening with me. How is everyone elses week going?

My 99th Post..

So I am one post away from 100 which I think is pretty exciting. Or really sad depending on how you want to look at it. But I don't really have anything interesting to write about... TMO you may find this interesting.. so you know how a certain person wrote on my fb wall yesterday about his shirt? I wrote back yesterday..and now its gone. For everyone else I guess here is the story: I was seeing this guy, and he left a shirt at a my house. He now has a girlfriend but wrote on my wall asking if I still had his shirt. I wrote back this: I do still have your shirt, we will have to trade back sometime..(cause he has my fake dad's shirt) So my thing is why write that on my wall if you don't want me to write back? I assume its because of his girlfriend but really.. its not like I didn't just answer his question. Weird.

Anyways I am going home wednesday to get my wisdom teeth out thursday. And I have lots of homework to do tommorow so it probably will be a couple days before I write anything else. Unless something super interesting happens because I feel like my 100th post should be epic! Perhaps I will write it when I am nice and drugged up.haha

Gold digging ways..

So I haven't been updating every 5 minutes cause my roomates got back aaaaaaaaaaannndd I had actual people to talk to. I figure its ok especially in consideration of the list thing because I skipped ahead in the first place. And I don't want to do the next ones. I guess this is an interesting fact about me: I often quit things. Very few activities in my life have actually managed to become a long term thing. The 30 day post thing mingt be one of them. I'm not sure yet. Anyways I am exciting because I have today and tommorow off just for my sorority pubcrawl that is I AIN'T SAYING SHE A GOLDDIGGER themed. I must now google ways to pimp my pubcrawl shirt out for this occasion.

Pictures: Cause I want to finish this thing.

This is a Recent Pic of Me. As in from the pubcrawl this weekend. I don't believe a More recent Picture exists.

This is a pic of me that is over 10 years old. Its actually the only really old pic of me on my computer. I am probably 8 here(I know I always look younger.)Anyways I am in the bottom left.

This is a picture I took myself. Its the Friends building from my trip to New York City.

A picture that makes me sad

I wanted to get this one overwith cause I thought about it too much last night:

I just miss these boys..and I like how happy I look in these but it also makes me sad that we aren't like that anymore

I wanted to get this one overwith cause I thought about it too much last night:

fake Parents come home!

So my roomates have been gone now for over a week and I am ready for them to be back. I watched the very end of season 4 Dexter(which was super retarded...I thought it was a terrible sad..not good at all) and then I kept seeing the frigging Trinity killer in the corner of my room. Which everything is exponentially less scary when people are home with you. Also I had a dream that I got accepted to some weird college thing which I didn't apply for but I'm thinking I should have heard from grad school soonish. But jo has the mail key so I can't check. Also the cat has been acting strangely affectionate(probably because I haven't been home that much) and I feel bad and that I am probably not the best pet owner.

Fake Family Pic On the way to Montreal(Probably not the Safest Plan)

My biggest pet peeve.

I think its kind of hard to think of such things until they actually happen. It would probably be people bossing me around when I am not in the mood to be told what to do or like when you just want to says something and the other person has to make it a competition about both your lives. Those are like big general kind of things that I don't always hate tho. One thing that drives me crazy almost no matter what is chanting and/or clapping along to things. Not like clapping at the end of a performance but like the kind where people are trying to be involved with what is happening. Both of this are super irrational but are super annoying to me.

My favorite book/ quote

Ok so I am a World literature and cultural studies major/english minor. So I read alot. So this one was super hard for me. Its also hard because it changes. There are books that I have loved forever, that are like old friends that you'll never let go of. But here it is, My favorite book is any from the Harry Potter series, and if I had to be specific probably the last one.

Since I slacked yesterday aka worked all day then immediatly went and did other things here is my favorite quote as well: "Perhaps we are the words that tell who we are." Eduardo Galeano. I like it because I take it that we all can define who we are and the world around us. So there is those 2 out of the way. Yay..

The only cure..

for a night like last night is a fudgesicle..even if it is only 7 in the morning. Work should be fun.

Friday, February 12, 2010

Fill in the Blank Fridays...cause I LOVE filling things out.

1.I am hoping my Valentine's day this year includes, Some lovely quiet time at switchboard. Cause I work. and because I am so alone in the world..hahaMe and the cat are going to rock out.

2.My biggest Guilty pleasure is, Taylor Swift. Don't judge me. Although I have ranted about hating her, I somehow started to love her music. And it shames me.

3.I am most proud of, My ability to overcome my shyness. I know this is hard for some to believe but I it used to be killer.

4.If I could chose an oufit to live in it would be, Something comfortable I guess. Cause I assume I also have to sleep in it? So like tights and a hoodie and my long socks.

5.People are, necessary. No man is an island.

6.I would rather, be at home right now than be at school.

7.I love school more than toast but less than a staple gun.

Day 3: My favourite..wait for it...Television show.

My favorite tv show right now is hands down How I met your mother. It is steak sause to the extreme. Currently like half of my favourite music is from this show..well really only the nada surf,but I think the decemberists were also on it, just not the song I said. Anyways this show is simply pure awesome.

Weird things about my job..

I don't talk about my job much cause its boring. And I am always bored when I am there. So I figured it would make a boring post to talk about it. But one of the things about my work is there is lots of old men around(I work at a hardware store). Anyways I have lots of favorite old men customers that come in and will have a nice chat with me then go on their merry way. But every now and then there is a super creepy old man around that makes me incredibly uncomfortable. Today I had a particularily awful one. Now I can speak french, and when people talk I can understand almost everything except for like slang that they don't teach you in school. The reasons I have troubles in school is because I have a hard time writing, not comprehension. Anyways so this old guy, well like probably 47 year old guy starts talking to me in french. But he is half talking in english so I figure he can understand me so I keep talking in english(cause I get self consious about my accent/grammar)Anyways this guy keeps talking to me in french, which I understand but I carry on just ringing things in becuase he is being semi obnoxious. Then this old guy, who I guess assumes I can't understand french starts saying creepy things about me to his friend, who also gets visibly embarrased. I was all red faced and awkward acting but I guess he thought I was just uncomfortable cause I couldn't understand him. And then when he left he whistled at me in like the innappropriate whistling kind of way. Anyways it was stupid. Thats my entire point. Old men should keep it to themselves.

Day 2: My favorite Movie

This is going to be a short one cause I know this one for sure...and have actually already talked about it in my blog. My favorite movie is Le Fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain..and if you want to know about I wrote a post about it I think at the end of december. Basically watch it if you haven't, there are subtitles if you need them. Other honourable mentions would be Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Big Fish, Most disney movies and for sentimental reasons mainly The lizzie Maguire Movie.

Day One:My favorite Song

I know I am just starting off with this list thingy and I shouldn't complain yet but heres the thing..I have a million favorite songs. It really depends on my mood. I also forget about song and then remember them and love them again. Or I will listen to a song too much and then hate it for awhile. So to gain some insight I decided to look at my ipod for my most played song. And the winner in that respect is Set fire to the third Bar by Snow Patrol Ft Martha Wainwright(I liked it way before it was on the commercial for the dear john movie. It was actually my ringtone for about 2 years ending in like november.) Although I do love this song and could probably get away with saying it is my favorite it now feels semi tainted cause it was on the commercial and I once again look like I am bandwagon jumping. So here are some other honorable mentions- The Recluse by Cursive- I've liked this since high school so it should be considered among my favorites. The littlest Birds- Be good Tanyas- This song usually makes me feel happy no matter what. Perfect Disguise by Modest Mouse- I thought I would include a song by them because they are undoubtedly my favorite band. The rest of my favorite songs are kind of isolated from anything else they singers sing aka I don't like it or have never tried listening to it. And Finally my current favorite song is either Inside of Love by Nada Surf or The Engine Driver by the decemberists because when either of them come on my ipod I don't skip them and always listen to them no matter my mood. Well this is much longer than expected but I get conflicted about music. and most things. This list thing might not go well cause I hate picking favorites. We will see I guess.

I like Bandwagons

So I am going to full out jump on to this one:
Day 1: My favorite song
Day 2: My favorite movie
Day 3: My favorite television program
Day 4: My favorite book
Day 5: My favorite quote
Day 6: My biggest pet peeve
Day 7: A photo that makes me happy
Day 8: A photo that makes me angry or sad
Day 9: A photo I took
Day 10: A photo of me taken over ten years ago
Day 11: A photo of me taken recently
Day 12: Whatever tickles my fancy
Day 13: A fictional book
Day 14: A non-fictional book
Day 15: A fanatic
Day 16: A song that makes me cry
Day 17: An art piece
Day 18: Whatever tickles my fancy
Day 19: A talent of mine
Day 20: A hobby of mine
Day 21: A recipe
Day 22: A website
Day 23: A YouTube video
Day 24: Whatever tickles my fancy
Day 25: My day, in great detail
Day 26: My week, in great detail
Day 27: My month, in great detail
Day 28: My year, in great detail
Day 29: Hopes, dreams and plans for the next 365 days
Day 30: Whatever tickles my fancy

I have been toying with the idea of copying certain folks for a couple of days now but now I am commited to doing so, mainly since Tpain has also done so. Hey T-mo maybe this is a good way to get back into the swing of things.

Random Thoughts

So no particularily big and exciting event has happened in my life recently so I figured I'd write about all the small and silly things that have happened instead.

1. The is a place called Roby in Texas. Roby is the "official"name on my drivers license(my learners),which is a typo cause my name is clearly robyn. If you want the full story go to my very first blog and that explains everything. But I was intrigued when I learned there is a place called Roby because I could develope an interesting back story to go with my fake name. Like perhaps thats where I was conceived and therefore my parents named me that retarded almost robyn name. The flaw with this and trying to use the license as id is that you can clearly see I signed robyn not roby but its a plan anyways.

2. French has this habit of making me forget every word ever. Not just french words but English words. Suddenly I'm trying to think of french words and I forget everything instead. I actually think this might be a helpful strategy cause if I could just forget everything and relearn it I might be better off you never know. I actually got a ok mark on my last french assignment a 64% which doesn't sound good but I normally am in the 55-57 range. I think my prof just feels bad for me tho cause I'm taking the class again.

3.I had a super weird dream where I was on a date with the creepy guy in my film class. We were at the movies(which is always the same weird theater I have never been too when I dream) and her was definatly invading my personal space and whatnot so I went and helped a small asian child find his grandparents as an excuse to get away from him.It was weird. I also dreamed there were new people working at my hardware store and that I had to climb a rickety ladder for their benefit. Also the computer at tool corral was all weird and different. I have like 3 other dreams I rememeber from last night which I think means I wasn't sleeping soundly enough. Cause thats when you remember dreams right?I don't really know but thats true from my experience.

I feel like I should end at 3 cause I'm not sure I could get a 5th and I don't like to end things on 4. I would like to mentioned I had a lovely visit from T-Mo(who is going to be the next to get blog policed haha)and Nicole(who I have to think of a good blog name for. Perhaps Mrs. Sage. Tmo you will have to show her this and see if she approves)yester day, which was nice.I mainly wanted to mention it so that tmo will write in her blog. I miss it. So sad. Anyways I would also like to mention that my ipod is driving me nuts so whenever anyone has any new music that they think I would like comment. Maybe I will write a nice blog about you. This is going much longer than normal cause I am bored waiting to go to class. and I am therefore rambling. But I guess I will go. Happy Hump day!(remember when that was super funny in like junior high..cause I said hump..haha)

"This is my house, I have to defend it"

I am home alone once again..but this time I have it rigged defensively against murderes..Probably anyways. For some reason, once I am home alone I always feel the need to watch things that might scare me. This time it was dexter. Because he can get into anywhere. That got me thinking about home alone and setting some kind of noise making defense up so that if someone did come in it would get knocked over and I could escape out my balcony or something. But thats a bad idea really cause the cat would probably know it over, or I would forget and knock it over myself and then annoy the neighbours.That would give the murdering neighbors incentive to come after me, which currently probably isn't that that high.

Well I guess I should get off the planning strategy for what I should do in case of my house being broken into. I am going to think about happy things, like the not so clever robbers from Home alone(which is where I got the title)They also were not the murdering type. Really if a robber was not going to murder or rape me I would just give them everything in the apartment. I would even help them carry it out. Not that jo and willis would be happy but I would be happy to be alive, which I think is probably more important.

Well since I clearly can't think of anything else, I am going to watch something so that I have happy thoughts before sleeping. I'm thinking some How I met your mother or degrassi the next generation.Later

My Friend Kasie aka The Feral Cat

So because I was bored and sleepy, and incoherent I made up a contest in which I would devote a blog post to the winner. And the winner was Kasie aka the Feral Cat and the owner of Yay! So here is what I have to say about Kasie. I have known her for about 2 and half years now, maybe a bit longer because I believe she came on a pubcrawl before she actually joined my sorority, which is how we know each other. The first time I went to her house it was for an Australia day party, which I believe I left a not so good, or at least mysterious impression on her, as I left in the middle without my coat or purse I believe(Classic party barging on my part.)We both have names in the sorority which are basically because our big sisters thought we were weird. (Everybody in the sorority has a sister name which you get upon joining, mine is star). But although she is perhaps weird Kasie is super cool and one of the most interesting people I know. She loves planes , tatoos, her cats, motorcycles and math(this is what makes her strange to me)(I'm also assuming she loves math only because she is in mechanical engineering)She is super smart and has been an active and extremely valuable member of the sorority since joining. She can be one of the guys but also is subject to incredibly girly moments as well. She rarely wears pants(always tights haha). Basically she is super cool and fun, and I am lucky to have her as both as sister and friend. So check out her blog(although she is slacking on it, since I am the blog police clearly).

Jo, Kasie and Me last year at Christmas(Kasie is much blonder now..Thats another thing she is always changing her hair.)

This is just a note to say..

Not that I ate the plums from the icebox...haha things that are only funny to english students, thats what that just was..Anyways this is just a note to say that I am not dead. I just had a busy week because of work, school and shooting a film for school. I haven't been home much this week because of those elements and I'm going home to my home home this weekend so i probably won't write anything then either. So nobody panic(oh I'm so funny. I think I might actually be thinking things are funny when they aren't so I'm going to stop. cause me thinking I'm funny while rambling could be dangerously unfunny. Here is my proposition tho: to whoever is first to figures out my not funny english joke and post what it is from I will write I personalised blog just about you.Fun right? Cause now its like a game with a mediocre prize...

New boots..and baking

I got new boots yesterday! I am quite excited, because I've been wanting new boots forever! Here is a picture of them:

They are pretty different from any boots I have, mainly because they have a heel. Which is probably good as I am only 5'2 and one of my goals in life is to be able to where heels all the time. I doubt this will ever happen though because I am a wuss.
The only other thing happening in my life is that I am currently baking so I can bring cookies to my group meeting tonight. This is so they will not trade me to the group that includes this incredibly creepy guy. And I have no other valuable skills to contribute to this group as it is film production and I no nothing about it. So I made chocolate chip cookies. I also made enough for me and jo and probably willis as it is unlikely me and jo will eat them all before thursday.I was going to post a pic of these cookies but I can't figure out how to get the picture off my blackberry. If I do I will put up pictures.
