Rambling


I would like you all to first know that the screen at which I sit is several times larger than my own head. And the keyboard is weird, because the space button feels all messed up.

Today I am forcing myself to ramble. This is the kind of thing you people love, right? So that's what I'm planning on doing. So here I go...

First I'll need some inspiration. Of course the night sky right outside my window is it, so my topic is constellations.

When most people hear the word "constellation", they think of the big dipper and the little dipper. These, contrary to popular belief, are actually not constellations. Though I know everyone reading this already knew that, I'm informing you of that.

Should a constellation really be named after a spoon? Of course I won't answer that. How is it that a simple three pieces of cutlery (fork, knife, spoon) can pick up every food. Are only knives considered cutlery? Maybe silverware. What are plastic utensils, then? Plasticware? Maybe I should just call them "utensils". But that is not specific only to knives and stuff. And why can't you drink water with a spoon? You eat soup with a spoon. Or is it drink soup? Hmm...

I got it! Pasta! None of the utensils (cutlery, whatever), can pick up pasta. No, wait, damnit! They use forks to twirl and spoons to lift it up in Europe. Why did I have to go to Europe? You punks would have never known that. Argh!

Can you use onomatopoeias (is that how you make it plural?) to use words like "argh"? Or "ow"? How come everyone uses "ow", or "ouch"? Is it a natural tendency, or maybe it's just because that's what we say in the U.S. (if that's the end of a sentence, does it have another period? U.S..? is that right? And where do you put the period? After parentheses, or before them? And are the beginning of things that are in parentheses capitilized? Who am I talking to?). In Spain they say "Ay", like "ahy", kind of.

My mom's telling me to stop blogging now. What time is it? 9:11 PM? Is that a bad omen? Who cares? Are these too many questions?

I'm quickly checking my comments to see if there is anything to address...

Yeah, the anonymous person is smart (wait, I just saw a gnat... are there gnats around?). Who can think of the funniest way to take over the world? Email it to me or post on The Guest Blog. NO MACY'S CARDS, Tim! I stole that from Dilbert. For everyone else, Tim steals my jokes, which I often steal from others. But it's different because rarely is it someone I know from whom I steal it (that was a confusing sentence but I'm too lazy to fix it).

The following is a list of girls who make me nervous because I think they judge me as annoying and obnoxious because they're smarter/as smart as me, and they're quiet. And they don't laugh at my jokes.

Oh but I doubt they actually do think that. Except for Catherine...

Catherine (especially. Does she hate me? I'm not sure...)
Emma (who doesn't laugh anyway. As far as I know)
Elizabeth (Ello)
umm... kind of Carissa
Susie

I know they are more. I'll update later.

my guess is that onomatopoeia in the plural would be onomatopoeiae. (LATIN!) seeing as many irregular words as such take the latin's nominative plural. (ex: fungus, fungi)

Abby said...

yeah, "ow" actually is said differently in different places. Like, my friend christin, she spent like 6 months or 9 months or something in Japan, and she said that people there said something different. I can't remember it right now, though. I'll ask her tomorrow if I remember.

Carissa said...

HI! U rambled. Can i rant on ur rambling? i really feel like doing that. because i have a lot to say about this post. so yeah. just warning u in advance.

I really like that picture of the stars. It is AMAZING! Have u ever just looked at the stars and tried to imagine how far away that single speck of light is from you? and then how many there are? it is just totally astounding. I looove looking up into the night sky and just staring. Plus, did u realize that God knows each and every one of those stars by NAME? Like try going out on a clear night and naming the stars. Then the next night see how many you can remember. ie "i think that one was FRED, or that. no maybe it's alice. bernie?" exactly. isn't it amazing????

Ok... its late so i'll cut my ranting short and end with this.

What is with the list of girls who make you nervous??? I do not get this. First, Catherine rarely laughs unless it is at someone else's pain. she probably just doesn't notice you (aren't i positive?). then, hey, i've been emma's best friend since kindergarten and it's hard for even ME to get her to laugh. Ello, yeah, she is just quiet. And like catherine maybe doesn't notice you as much. and is wayyyy quiet. Hong... well.. hong gives ME an inferiority complex. she gives EVERYONE an inferiority complex. Susie = same as ello and catherine in the not noticing you sense. And ME. THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST RIDICULOUS THINGS I HAVE EVER HEARD!!!!!!!!!!!! AT LEAST YOU SAID "KIND OF" GAHHH!!! I CANNOT BEGIN TO EVEN SCRATCH THE SURFACE OF THIS TOPIC!!!!!!! so i'll leave it for another time when i can soundly disprove it. maybe i'll write u an essay. won't u feel special. Oh yeah... and none of the people u listed are smarter than you.... some more not than others... but STILL! none of those people are smarter than you

the end

for now

next time, I wouldn't title the list "girls who judge me obnoxious because they are SMARTer or as SMART as me"; you're bound to receive critism

Leah said...

Here to say I was completely confused by this entire post. Many Bothans died to bring you this pointless message.

Jeff said...

This was a confusing post. And you rambled. That is a very rare occasion, even rarer when both it is a comfusing post where you rambled. Keep up the good work! Continue rambling! Meep.
