My Mom brought me her absolutely fucking delicious cupcakes since she and Dad came up for Parent's Weekend. (Lifehouse, yay!) And as I was brining them back to the room, the following conversation occurred:

2 Guys in hallway: Mm, Pizza (the cupcakes are in an old pizza kit box thing)
Me: Not pizza.
Guy: What is it?
Me: Cupcakes. I am disguising awesomeness with awesomeness.
Guy:... ... ... OMG. Can I have one?

I have lived next to these people for over a month and this is the first conversation I have had with them. Apparently the way to start conversations involves having awesome food?

Supernatural: Heart of the Dragon = Done.

It bugs me that the author of the SPN books insists upon 'Cass' instead of 'Cas' for Castiel. He couldn't like 'Add to dictionary' Cas in spell-check or something? He had to have added Castiel, because spell-check tends to not like SPNAngel names.

Also, had amusing quotes today:

Dad: We got stuck waiting for them to open the road for like 20 minutes on the way here.
Grandad: Why? Was it closed or something?
All: ... ... ...

Dad: Do you need your iPod charger back anytime soon?
Me: No, not really. I can just-
Mom: What do you charge with it?
Dad, Me: ... ... ...

We finally got our AmVietnam tests back. I got an 82. I knew I wasn't gonna do spectacularly cause the big question at the end I raced through cause we were out of time. I'm okay with that, though, cause next time we get to do it as a take-home test so I'll be set.

He started singing a Brad Paisley song in class (Welcome to the Future - it had to do with what we were talking about - the Civil Rights movements ('from a woman on a bus to a man with a dream' - thats what he even named our folder for this part)) so I stayed to ask if he was going to the concert next week. He's not, but he did give me my Anthro test. Got a 94 on that one. :D

Music is exceptionally boring. Only highlight being that we are talking about Japanese music now. But, it requires no concentration at all. We have quizzes every week or two and as long as I review for those the night before the test, I can get a perfect score. I have yet to lose a point in that class and in fact I have extra credit in that one. 102%?

I have a Think Question to answer for tomorrow's Anthro class. Shouldn't take terribly long. And I have to find a cigarette ad in a newspaper? This... confuses me. I was fairly certain they weren't allowed to put cigarette ads in magazines? ... Whatever.

I have 2 more episodes of S2Leverage to stream and watch -_- and then I can get back to my Leverage/GH fic. Which, OMG, the parallels between Hardison and Spinelli? Plentiful. Can we say orange soda?

But, anyway. I also found an amusing quite whilst reading a Criminal Minds book. "Imitation is the sincerest form of plagiarism." - Oscar Levant. Is that not an awesome take on an old quote?

3 weeks in and we haven't gotten to Vietnam yet. Would be less amusing if it weren't 'America in the Vietnam Era' class.

-------------------------

Anyhow, what happens is, is that we do have… Old MacArthur comes in and instead of starting here [South Korea] and fighting up, he says ‘well, we’ll do an end run’. Sounded a little like John Wayne there, heh. And so we come in here [Middle of divided Korea] and we start goin’ up that way! And we start moving up, and they’re falling back, and we’re moving up, moving up, moving up. And now there’s a lotta folks that say ‘well, heck, why do we just go into China?’ There’s too many of ‘em! Right, I mean… wh- wha- what what what? This is just to stop Korean aggression! This isn’t to start World War III in Asia, besides, that’s a crazy place to wanna fight! And the Chinese kept saying ‘Don’t get too close, don’t get too close, don’t – YOU’RE TOO CLOSE!’ And what happens is that in the fall of ’50, the Chinese come in! And then – Radar and Hawkeye and and and and Klinger. All those guys get themselves caught in a Korean war on MASH that lasted longer than the actual war. Which, for their bank accounts was great. Yeah, MASH, folks, is Korea, it’s not Vietnam. It was broadcast during the Vietnam era, but it’s Korea, ‘kay? And Larry Gelbart, one of the major writers of both the movie and the television show passed away this weekend. So, the other part is now from ’50 into ’51, ’52, ’53, we’ll go back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. July 27th 1953 both sides say ‘Hey, enough.’ And we sign an armistice. And we sign it in a really neat building, it’s just a little bigger than this one. It had a line running right down the middle of it. And *steps* on this side of the line, you’re in South Korea. *steps* On that side of the line, you’re in North Korea. And you can take a tour… and when no one’s watching you can go *jumps from one side of line to the other and back*.. And you’d be in North Korea for a minute. But, anyway, we saw in the…” // “You can be in two places at once!” // “*laughs* I have unified the… *one foot on either side of line*Korea! *laughs* This conversation started here and it’s down here now. And what happens is we get a ceasefire, okay? And that’s basically what we’ve had since 1953. And of course, at the ceasefire, who’d gained the most territory? …. …. …. Well, where was the line before the war? *points to 38th parallel on map* And where’s the line after the war? *points to 38th parallel* Oh, don’t you love this Cold War?”

“But, as we were playing around with, before we left for a rainy weekend on Friday…” // “I don’t think it stopped raining. At all.” // “No, no. I did the backstroke to and from *location*. I, I think there was more water in the construction there at *location* than there was in the harbor. Um, that was like ‘Hey, hydroplane through here!’ What was cool, though, was that it was like 4 lanes of bumper to bumper traffic so you didn’t go too far. You know, like kids going bowling, and they put the bumpers up so you don’t get a gutter ball. That’s what 95 was like, kind of deal.”

“But, our four folks up there, they were known as the Weavers. They were in something that was very very popular in post-World War II America, kind of a folk revival, or, or the folk music deal that was starting to grow. Its popularity comes from a lot of different things. One is that it talked about a simplet time, ugh, because folks are really starting to be concerned about mushroom clouds and how fast technology’s going. So, a lot of this brought us back to a much simpler time of ‘Goodnight, Irene…’ which is all about a drug addict who kills his wife. Although the songs of the ‘50’s were… violent. Another one… do I have… Another one that… *searches computer files* Hummmm. *The Kingston Trio’s ‘Tom Dooley plays*Hear that? They used to make us sing this thing in elementary school! This is another one, like the Weavers and ‘Goodnight Irene’ this is another one from the ‘50’s. (Throughout history, there have been many songs written about the eternal triangle. This next one tells the story of a Mr Grayson, a beautiful woman, and a condemned man named Tom Dooley... When the sun rises tomorrow, Tom Dolley must hang). And, and the 3rd grade chorus would… Now this part was cool. This one was mine and Gabby H’s part. This was Gabby – (I met her on the mountain, there I took her life). My turn (I met her on the mountain, stabbed her with my knife) *makes appropriate hand gestures whilst singing along*And everyone cheered…. And Goodnight Irene is all about a drug addict, here we got a guy killing a woman, right? This is all the 50’s. And this is all a revival. To bring us to a simpler time.”

“But, the success of Nixon and the success of some of these other congressmen that we just don’t have time to play around with emboldens some others o want to do something. And one of these guys who wants to do something is the Junior Senator from the state of Wisconsin – Joe McCarthy. Joe… is a piece of work. Joe… is, is… Ah. Well, let’s put it this way. Um. ‘Why tell the truth when a lie can be so much louder?’ And that was Joe. Um, Joe goes up against in in in in in the Republican primary, Joe goes up against a Senator by the name of La Follette. Bob La Follette had been around for… ever and was a great senator. McCarthy wants to go up… ‘cause McCarthy’s got this drive, this determination, this zeal. He is going to, going to, going to, get all this stuff going. And, and he goes after La Follette on the only place that he can go after La Follette. La Follette didn’t serve in World War II. Well, no. La Follette was 46, 47 years old, had a whole bunch of physical infirmities, and was a member of the United States Senate. But, when Joe McCarthy said ‘I served this great country as a tail-gunner in a bomber plane, blowing missions over Europe…’ and everyone’s going ‘Wow… Tail-Gunner Joe!’ The only problem is… He didn’t do it.”

Zach: Ah, the good old days when people had corners.

 

Jessica (about bug on windshield): I think it’s a lightning bug.

Zach: What’s it doing outside in the middle of the day?

Jessica: Is it a crime for it to be out in the day?

Zach: No, but they’re usually out at night. If there was an owl sitting on that car over there, I’d be confused about that, too.

 

Zach: What were you looking for?

Jessica: My summer clothes.

Zach: … Shouldn’t they be with the rest of your clothes?

Jessica: I keep tank tops and shorts down here.

Zach: That’s… stupid.

Jessica: I have no closet.

Zach: You have two closets.

 

Zach (about Red Rover): I always won, though.

Jessica: Well yeah, no one was getting past you and no one was stopping you.

Zach: That game pretty much went “Red Rover, Red Rover, send Za… Josh right over.”

 

Jess: In five minutes I broke a vacuum and gashed my finger open.

Zach: That’s nothing. When the power blinked earlier, my computer rebooted while I was typing, and when I moved back to curse at it, the arm of my chair got wedged under the keyboard tray and it snapped apart. Then I backed up to curse again, one of the wheels came off the chair and I almost fell into the coffee table.

 

Zach (weaving through crowd at stadium during rain delay): I didn’t realize I was gonna have to navigate the Labyrinth for Dippin’ Dots. Keep an eye out, cause we might have to fight the Minotaur soon. I mean, I’ve had some training, but I’m not prepared. I’m not equipped for this. My shirt weighs like twenty pounds from the rain, I guess I could use it as a mace, but we’re talking serious improv here.

 

Zach: I realized today that my mind has two distinct halves. Zach is the lame one, and Ace is the cool one who says clever things. He’s actually talking right now, which means he’s speaking in third person.

Jess: Do you have a Martin Brody in there? [/psych reference]

Zach: No. I do have a Captain Quint though, he’s out right now, shopping for bigger boats.

Is there some great mystery in my life right now? No. There is not.

So why is it I keep seeing the same quote absoulately everywhere. In like the last 3 books I've read, several fics, and various other places, as well as hearing it said outlloud on several occasions via television and spoken conversation. It is everywhere.

Sherlock Holmes, while awesome, should not be everywhere.

Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

On the way to a baseball game, Dad decided we were stopping at BestBuy to get a CD. He wouldn't tell me who it was, despite my strategic and stealthy prodding. He goes in, buys a CD by Parachute - a band he heard on some TV show or something. He says I'll like them. They sound kinda like Matt Nathanson.

He plays a song. I say 'They don't sound like Matt, they sound like Sparky's Flaw.' Sparky's Flaw being a band that opened for Graham Colton at a concert last year.

I look at the CD case, recognize several of the song names, change it to one of the ones I recognize. And I can sing the entire song because I have it on my iTunes.

'Dad. This is Sparky's Flaw.'

'What? No it's not.'

'What's the main guys name?'

'Will.'

'It's Sparky's Flaw.They must have changed their name.'

'... ... ... I've been Para-Flaw'ed.'

I have a signed EP and a picture with Will from the show we saw them at. See?

On my last day in my last week of normal and not pathetically few working hours, they tried to kill me. Mom didn't work. It was just me and one other person. Who.... is really slow at assembly.

We had 76 charts.

Normally we're somewhere between 45-60. I think the highest it's ever been was like 80. I did most of them. My co-worker took like 5 of them while I was on the floors fetching more. She hadn't started when I got back. I did 22 charts and went back to the floors again before she finished hers. =.=

Barring unforeseen circumstances (i.e. certain people calling out which gives me their hours at last minute's notice) I have no work til Friday.

Criminal Minds: Jump CUt = 198/271

Also:

Mom: *snore* *pause* I don’t snore. <- is on sofa
Me: Yeah. You snore.
Mom: No. It was Nash?
Me: Where is he?
Mom: Over there with Dad. It was Dad. Through the wall.
Me: Dad but not Buddy? He’s right there. *points to floor by Mom*
Mom: Fine. It was Buddy.
Me: You snore.

"I'm of that generation that says that nothing new has happened in music since 1974. You know, it's all been a re-hash of everything. You know, no new guitar licks have been done since Eric Clapton was with the Yardbirds, kind of deal."

"We have been playing around in...*Van Halen's 'Panama' begins to play* What country? Where were we? Southern California? Cabo? No. So, is it right to say that I'm the only one that was alive when this came out back in 1984? Yeah. You know, I didn't think about this until I played it in my Monday/Wednesday/Friday class, and a young woman who's in her early 30's said 'You know, we're the only two that were alive when this came out?' So. We were playing around in the country of *PANAMA* I am a professional, do not try this at home. And we were saying that in *PANAMA* that there were some problems with the leader, Noriega. Did you know David Lee Roth is my age. And he can still jump? I just hurt watching that video. ut, ugh, well, only when he's stoned. We were talking about how the leader, Manuel Noriega had went and he hid in the Embassy of the Vatican. And we got him out by playing music. The song that they played the most... was this one... *Bobby Fuller Four's 'I Fought The Law' begins to play* Doesn't this get your toes tapping? This is the stuff I grew up to. Instrumental Break. Four chords. Now, watch how intricate they get with this part. Ready? here we go *Robbin' people with a ...~ SIX GUN* *~stomps foot in time with song* Now you know what's the matter with my generation?" - "It's not repetitive at all." - "No, no, not at all, the depth of the lyrics are what makes it... brings us the totallity of... what my generation is all about. This is gonna be in your head for the rest of the day." *song ends* - "Can you rectify this situation by playing 'My Generation' by The Who? Just to give us something else to..." - "No. I'm playing it again. *song begins again* Oh, you didn't think they played it once and Noriega came out, did you? No. They played this over and over for days?" - "Did he contemplate suicide?" - "Um. I don't know if he contemplated suicide, but I think a lot of non-violent priests contemplated murder. Because even though I have this turned down slightly... you could hear it for six square blocks in Panama. Over... and over... and over. I mean, we're only in our second time and I can see by your eyes you're just screaming for me to stop it. Oh, you thought I was gonna lecture today? Oh, no. Course, the GI's were all wearing their - well, at the time, Walkman's so they didn't have to listen to it. The Bobby Fuller Four. It's instrumental break again. Four chords. Now. Get ready for the six gun. Oh, you sing the next time through. *more foot stomping* Not a synthesizer in it. I want you to get into the lyrics. I want you to be able to go home tonight and say 'Whatdya'll do in class today? ... We pay money for this?' Only the second time. I wanna see how long it takes you to ay 'No mas! No mas!'" *song finally ends* - "As a drummer, that song makes me want to kill myself." - "There's a good beat - Duhn, duhn, duhn, duhn. Anyhow, that's what old Noriega had to mess around with. Can you imagine after a while the preists saying 'You don't belong here! Get out, get out!' And... eventually he did."

"I'm of that generation that says that nothing new has happened in music since 1974. You know, it's all been a re-hash of everything. You know, no new guitar licks have been done since Eric Clapton was with the Yardbirds, kind of deal."

"We have been playing around in...*Van Halen's 'Panama' begins to play* What country? Where were we? Southern California? Cabo? No. So, is it right to say that I'm the only one that was alive when this came out back in 1984? Yeah. You know, I didn't think about this until I played it in my Monday/Wednesday/Friday class, and a young woman who's in her early 30's said 'You know, we're the only two that were alive when this came out?' So. We were playing around in the country of *PANAMA* I am a professional, do not try this at home. And we were saying that in *PANAMA* that there were some problems with the leader, Noriega. Did you know David Lee Roth is my age. And he can still jump? I just hurt watching that video. ut, ugh, well, only when he's stoned. We were talking about how the leader, Manuel Noriega had went and he hid in the Embassy of the Vatican. And we got him out by playing music. The song that they played the most... was this one... *Bobby Fuller Four's 'I Fought The Law' begins to play* Doesn't this get your toes tapping? This is the stuff I grew up to. Instrumental Break. Four chords. Now, watch how intricate they get with this part. Ready? here we go *Robbin' people with a ...~ SIX GUN* *~stomps foot in time with song* Now you know what's the matter with my generation?" - "It's not repetitive at all." - "No, no, not at all, the depth of the lyrics are what makes it... brings us the totallity of... what my generation is all about. This is gonna be in your head for the rest of the day." *song ends* - "Can you rectify this situation by playing 'My Generation' by The Who? Just to give us something else to..." - "No. I'm playing it again. *song begins again* Oh, you didn't think they played it once and Noriega came out, did you? No. They played this over and over for days?" - "Did he contemplate suicide?" - "Um. I don't know if he contemplated suicide, but I think a lot of non-violent priests contemplated murder. Because even though I have this turned down slightly... you could hear it for six square blocks in Panama. Over... and over... and over. I mean, we're only in our second time and I can see by your eyes you're just screaming for me to stop it. Oh, you thought I was gonna lecture today? Oh, no.

Jessica: I got stuck.
Dad: Even with your cheat book?
Jessica: It’s not a cheat book.
Dad: Right, they disguise it, call it a “Strategy Guide”.
Jessica: It has maps! Does that mean pilots are cheaters?
Zach: “Hey, I know we’re just supposed to wing it there, but seriously, I think I need a map for this shit. Florida’s south, right?”

Jessica: I don’t want to tutor her.
Mom: Why? It’ll get you ready for school.
Zach: In the wrong subjects. 2+2= sodium phosphate.

Zach: If you build it and it doesn’t suck they will come.

Zach: 14 years of threatened violence and you’ve never once delivered.
Jess: *stands up and steps closer*
Zach: *cringes*
Jess: Because I don’t need to.

Jess: It’s blizzarding.
Zach: Blizzarding? Good thing you’re not an English tutor.

Jess: They’re both basically about the same thing: Criminals, stealing cars, and gangs.
Zach: You can steal gangs?
Jess: No. Criminals, comma, stealing cars, comma, and gangs.
Zach: How was I supposed to hear your comma?

Jessica: Look old.
Zach: *Hikes up pants*

Zach: I think it’s a sign from God. Dad buys a video game, the TV breaks.

Zach: I’m sorry, sir, but we couldn’t save your ear lobes. -- Um, ohkay… Did you save the leg? -- No. -- Fuck!
