Halloweenie Minnie Artist

This must have been the first Halloween that I haven't gone trick or treating. However, I did do plenty of things that I have never done before.
First, I got to hold my friends baby, and I mean baby, brother for more than one minute. (he was a scarecrow and it was adorable.
Second, I went to a Catholic Church. Of course I had to embarrass myself.. Walked the wrong way. Didn't know the words to any of the prayers, didn't know what to do with the whole bread and wine thing. It was a mess. A great experience though. (:
Third, I carved a plumpkin (pumpkin)!! Picture seen above. The only sad part was that my e broke. :( tear..
Fourth, I ate roasted pumpkin seeds. Oh my goodness.. SWEET BABY CHEEZE-ITZ! those were amazing. Yum yum yum (:
And lastly, I painted things on peoples faces!
Yea that is correct ladies and gents (and computers), I the Magpie was at a festival with Songbird for Halloween, and we painted on kids faces. It wasn't that bad at all really. The only thing is that I just got home at like 10:15 or something and I feel like I'm gonna die. I am sooo unbelievably tired right now.
The best part is that I have to finish algebra 2 homework. Ugh kill me now.. Oh and picture retakes are tomorrow. Joy. Well... I better get moving. Happy Halloweenie!!

The Crazy Colossal Squid ate my Critique!

The play last night was pretty good. (: I had the most fun during intermission though. Haha I sat in between my two best friends, so it's hard not to have fun.
Dr. Jekel and Mr. Hyde Part 1:
Okay, so the first half of the play went well. Bob decided he would rather sit by me and songbird than evil Ginger and her minions. (not trying to offend the red heads.. She's just really mean and happens to have red hair..) Anywho, we thought we had pick pretty awesome spots, but 2 mins before the show starts this really tall lady sits in front of me, so that I can't see the right side of the stage. Guess who was sitting on my right that I had to get incredibly close to during most of the first half? Bob. After reflecting a tad... I kind of need to apologize to song bird.. I talked to bob quite a bit more. :/ I'm kind of ashamed to admit that I was thrilled whenever his arm accidentally touched mine and stayed there for a good 5 minutes.. And That I seriously wish I could have moved my head down a few more centimeters so that it was resting on his shoulder at one point.. That's only happened once, it last for a few seconds and it will probably never happen again. Sigh..
Intermission: I was picked on by both of my friends basically. Oh! And colossal quids really exist!! :O bob told me so. (: and songbird confirmed it. Guess I wont be swimming in the Arctic ocean anytime soon. ..or was it the Antarctic? I don't remember. Haha.
Dr. Jekel and Mr. Hyde Part Two: the play ended with a twist, songbird and I whispered something important, the people behind us wouldn't shut up, and bob accidentally touch me again. Oh! And it was cold.
I can't really think of anything else to say about last night other than.. It was pretty fun. (:
Going over to Songbird's house later today. (: Will probably apologize then. :/ she'll probably make some comment about bob and me.
I'm think we need to cool the best friends thing just a tad, because I keep getting asked if we're dating. I may talk to him tonight about it.. If it comes up of course.

Rocks on a Grave

Schindler's List is by far one of the best movies ever and I recommend it! Besides scenes with nudity, strong language and massive amount of violence the movie was exceptionally well done. (not that those things made it less amazing.. It was just awkward watching parts with my guy friends..) this is a movie that everyone should watch before they die.
I'd say more, but I must get ready to go to a play tonight with some friends. I may put some jeans on because the PAC is always cold. I would bring a sweater but I kind of want to see if one of my friends will let me borrow theirs.. Don't ask.. It's just a thing of mine. Haha. Sorry it's so short today! Later gators.

The Monster that eats my Sweaters

I really wish I had a sweater..

So I'm sitting on the concrete hill thingy by what is basically a ditch and it's pretty chilly outside. I will admit that wearing the black tank top because it makes me look like a bad ___ wasn't one of my more brilliant ideas.
I'm kind of POed right now because my family has turned into a bunch of maniacs and I'm sick of being the scapegoat/Cinderella. All of there crap is pretty much why I just left the house and am now sitting outside in the wind. I personally think that sitting here freezing my butt off is better than the alternative of sitting at home listening to chaos. Plus semi running away for a bit adds to the whole 'everything is my fault' bit. I'll probably go home in a bit and they won't even know I left.
I wish my friends weren't busy, but the fresh Air can be my friend for the time being I guess.

The Troll

I don't know what movie has done to my family, but I'd appreciate it if it would stop. I don't think my family can handle this quite honestly. At the moment my sister is trying to convince my parents that I'm a bad guy because I asked her to sit in the back of the car. I would have moved to the back, but I am wearing a dress today so that would not have been easy. Then my brother just started crying because he's not sitting next to who he wanted. Finally, my other sister decided that she was going to be angry today for whatever reason. When she got home, I seriously thought the door was going to fall off. Ugh! All of this just to go out and eat at a restaurant. I think I would much rather eat at home or get take out. So... Much easier. My family kills me sometime. I shall have to get back to you later, we have arrived. I'm sure I will have more stories to tell after dinner. Joy.. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.

Just wanted to say really quickly that the post below was todays blog post too. I didn't know how the whole posting a draft thing would work. Sweetness. (:

On October 20, 1947, the notorious Red Scare kicks into high gear in Washington, as a Congressional committee begins investigating Communist influence in one of the world's richest and most glamorous communities: Hollywood.

After World War II, the Cold War began to heat up between the world's two superpowers—the United States and the communist-controlled Soviet Union. In Washington, conservative watchdogs worked to out communists in government before setting their sights on alleged "Reds" in the famously liberal movie industry. In an investigation that began in October 1947, the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) grilled a number of prominent witnesses, asking bluntly "Are you or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?" Whether out of patriotism or fear, some witnesses—including director Elia Kazan, actors Gary Cooper and Robert Taylor and studio honchos Walt Disney and Jack Warner—gave the committee names of colleagues they suspected of being communists.

A small group known as the "Hollywood Ten" resisted, complaining that the hearings were illegal and violated their First Amendment rights. They were all convicted of obstructing the investigation and served jail terms. Pressured by Congress, the Hollywood establishment started a blacklist policy, banning the work of about 325 screenwriters, actors and directors who had not been cleared by the committee. Those blacklisted included composer Aaron Copland, writers Dashiell Hammett, Lillian Hellman and Dorothy Parker, playwright Arthur Miller and actor and filmmaker Orson Welles.

Some of the blacklisted writers used pseudonyms to continue working, while others wrote scripts that were credited to other writer friends. Starting in the early 1960s, after the downfall of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the most public face of anti-communism, the ban began to lift slowly. In 1997, the Writers' Guild of America unanimously voted to change the writing credits of 23 films made during the blacklist period, reversing—but not erasing—some of the damage done during the Red Scare.

Belated Concert Time

I am writing today a lot earlier than I usually to because I have a choir concert tonight, and when I get back I have a bunch of homework to do.
I'll start with the not so happy news, moving. I almost did not have any moving news today, but I decided to tell my English/History teachers about it. Not fun. I almost did it without crying, but one of the girls in my class overheard me and decided to give me a hug and that's when the tears started. The girl who usually cries in that class made me cry. Kind of ironic.
Anywho, I learned that the subjects we are covering now are flipped from what regular classes are learning. That is good because I will beast the lessons in Oklahoma, but bad because I'll have to learn the other material on my on. Luckily for me my teachers post almost everything you need online and they have blogs where the students and teachers can interact, so I have decided to learn vicariously through the Internet. That should be interesting. Haha we shall see..BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

1 Day and 4 Hours Later....

Okay, so when I was originally typing up this blog on my phone I was at school waiting for my mother to pick me up. Well, my mother arrived sooner than I thought she would and when I got home I had to get ready for the Fall Concert. After the Fall Concert, which was pretty amazing for a Fall Concert (I sang 11 songs all together and for 2 of the pieces we received standing ovations!), I was starving so my mother and I went to Taco Bell. I ordered a Mexican Pizza (that tasted like a cardboard box) and two tacos (amazing), just in case you were wondering. The concert was over at 8:30 and I didn't get home until around 10. Well.. it takes me about 30 minutes to eat, and other 30 minutes to shower and all of that good stuff, so I really had no chance to finish up this blog. However, I did have time to finish it up now. The only thing is that because it is 11pm, this is no longer an early blog post and I have an hour to finish before I am two days late.

Umm... where did I leave off.. Right! Learning vicariously through the internet. Well.. that pretty much summed up my Tuesday.. sooo... on to today! (:

Wednesday: Today I took A Capella choir pictures and forgot my order form in the car. Luckily I found enough money in my backpack to buy a group shot and my best friend is getting buddy shots, so I thought I was safe. Ha.. nope. As soon as my mother gets home, she freaks. I don't think it was about the pictures though.. I think it's about the move. She has had her panties up in a bunch for the past two weeks. Bleh.. not fun, trust me.
Hmm what else happened today? Umm.. Not much else really.. huh. Well, tomorrow is picture day for Madrigals, so I should probably get some beauty sleep. Don't want to look bad in the only Mads picture I will have.. :/ Sigh..

Night Bloggers!

Monday, October 18, 2010


So.. I did end up going to school, but I'm glad I did. Apparently I missed a ton Friday, so I am happy that I'm not as far behind as I could be. Also my best friends are amazing! They make me so happy. (: I really don't know what I shall do without them.
While on the topic of leaving, absolutely nothing happened moving wise. I still have a ton to pack but I didn't mess with any of that tonight.
Umm.. Fall concert tomorrow night.. Should be okay I guess.. Not much really happened.. I hope I don't end up crying in my English/History class when I tell me teachers. If I do I'm glad my 3 closest friend are with me.
Well, I have matrices to solve. Joy.. Night Bloggers.
Magpie Sandwich!!

Sickly Packer

So I kind of sorta missed school on Friday due a Fever and a stomach ache that was barely anything. Usually on my sick days I watch tv, eat soup and read. However, because we are definitely moving within the next two months, I had to start packing up my stuff. Very sad.. :(
The movers are only taking so much, so that means that I also had to consider what things I would get rid of next weekend at our garage sale. This kind of thing is not easy for me, because just about everything has some sentimental valve and if it doesn't I can usually find a reason to keep it.. I don't understand how anyone can just throw things out and sell their stuff so easily. I kind of envied those people this weekend. :/
Well I'm still not feeling the best, so I may stay home from school tomorrow too. It all depends on how my mother is feeling, and if I have a fever. I think I'm going to go take an ibuprofen or something now. It feels like someone jabbed me in the head with pencils.
I'm going to try to write something everyday, and keep you posted on the move. Keyword: try.

When the World Stops

Have you ever had one of those moments where your whole world just stops for a moment and you can't breathe. I always thought that when this happens it was because of something good. Not this time..
I had just come home from my Mock Region Audition. Everything about the audition was perfect, it was my best ever, so naturally I was in a really great mood. Unfortunately that mood didn't last very long. I walk in the door and sit down and I hear those two words...

We're moving...

I feel like the world has just been pulled from under me. Nothing is stable and concrete anymore.. I can't breathe right and nothing is clear through my blurry vision. How am I supposed to study for my PSAT now.. How am I supposed to take that test tomorrow.
Things have just started getting close to perfect. I have been amazingly happy! My grades are great, I'm not worrying about boys, I have amazing friends, the house was just painted, my 16th is coming up, everything was perfect.
Well, I guess I was getting too happy and too comfortable.

We are moving this Christmas Break, no exceptions.. it's just a matter of where we are moving to.. Anchorage, Alaska or Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.. the only upside to this whole thing is that we get to choose.

Ugh! I hate this.. I think I'm just going to defenestrate myself out of the tallest building I can find. Sorry guys but I have to go research up on choirs and school academic profiles... maybe I will be able to see through these blurry eyes.

Operation Ditch Homecoming

Had the greatest night ever last night! Operation Ditch Homecoming was a great success. (: We might need to do that again next year. I personally think that spending around 5 hours with your friends and being able to hear them is a lot better than a dry humping party. Just saying..
Okay so I went with my best friend that might as well be my sister, Bob, and my real good friend who we shall call Knight. (makes sense to me due to the fact I know his actual name. Basically, I went with my 3 closest friends. (: where did we go? Well person who asks questions while reading my blogs, we went to the mall to have dinner, walk around, and watch a movie. I feel like I got so much closer to everyone and that makes me happy. (:
The movie was okay, but sitting by Bob made the two hours or so amazing. (: Ahh friends. My friends are so amazing. They are even cooler and more amazing than the baskin robbin's ice cream I ate that night.
(no this wasn't a double date. We didn't even couple up.. much. :P)
Anywho on the way home I determined two things. First, Knight's shoulder isn't very comfy. Second, Bob's shoulder is extremely comfy. Just saying... Yeah I was stuck in the back in the middle of Knight and Bob.. Definitely not complaining though. (: Just between you and me.. I could have easily fallen asleep in those few minutes I was leaning on Bob's shoulder. Wish he didn't live so close to the mall. :/
Speaking of sleep.. I think that's what I should do now. Night bloggers and blog readers. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

Homecoming Spirit Week: 1!!!

Day UNO: Mis-Match (:
I'm not quite sure if I'm going to do anything on this particular day... I kind of got a new dress this weekend that I really want to wear soo.. Sorry spirit week.
