I forgot half the mechanisms on my O.Chem. exam :'(
It started snowing as I was leaving--YAYness!! :D
The Internet has returned to Seibert :)
I found a hilarious PotO parody of the song "What is this feeling?" Read it--it's hysterical: LOATHING!
Secret Garden's original version of "You Raise Me Up" is rather pretty--it just started playing on my Launch Station and I'd never heard it before . . .
ok--must go to Genetics now . ..
Edit: wow . . . I feel intelligent now--I completely forgot that Dr. Tom had cancelled class for today since he wasn't going to be there--I got to the classroom and saw that no-one was there, then I remembered . . . *shakes head* it's a good thing Fisher Hall is next to my dorm--haha
( You know you're a fan of Classical Crossover when . . . )
Here's a logic question to ponder--my roommate asked me this today and after I "figured it out", she said I was wrong, but I think my answer makes more sense. She told me what the answer was, and then we spend almost an hour arguing about it because I couldn't figure out why the right answer is right . . .
Here's the question: A man is looking at a portrait and says, "Brothers and sisters have I none, but this man's father is my father's son." Who is the man in the portrait?
Please tell me what you think the answer is! She has this in her IM info and so far, my answer is winning--hehe . . .
I found this on http://www.lunaestas.com/blog/
Choose a band/artist and answer only in song titles by that band: Sarah Brightman (I would use Josh, but Sarah has more albums = more song titles) . . . and since there were so many choices, I went song-title happy and used more than one for most questions, so I shall lj-cut this so 'tisn't huge:
( What You Never Know . . . or How Sweet the Answer )
And now it's O.Chem time again :(
hmm . . . I think I should update . . . hehe. *Points at icon* Look, it's one of my new ones! :D . . . Let's see, where did I leave off? Ah, yes, Friday (the 13th--dun dun dun): After the "flooding" of the lab on Thursday, nothing really exciting (or horrible) happened on Friday. 'Twas actually rather slow at the lab, if I recall correctly . . . my mom and I were going to go to the movie theatre to see The Princess Diaries, but then we remembered that the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics were on and watched them with my dad. My dad and I *loved* the introduction, where James Earl Jones' distinctive voice was narrating about Ancient Greece with the theme from Jurassic Park in the background---go John Williams!! [sidenote--I wonder what he would have thought if at the time he wrote his Olympic themes for the '72 and '96 Games he would have known that they would become the "unofficial" themes for all following Games? . . . . ok, that was a rather confusing sentence, and I think I confused myself too] Of course, since 'twas Friday night and I didn't have to get up early on Sat, I stayed up rather late and read fanfiction . . . *looks sheapish* (is that even spelled right? *ponders*)
Saturday was fun, as I had my birthday party with my Wellsboro friends. Sarah, Karen, and G-Girl came for pizza and movies--Low-C came for about 15 minutes during her lunch break right after everyone else came and we talked for a little bit on my porch. She didn't have my present wrapped yet, but she gave me a pretty circlet-thingy from the Laurel Festival as a sort of birthday hat/crown :). I let Sarah, Karen, and G-Girl pick out one of my CDs to listen to while we ate (more like demolished . . . we also had help from Alexander) our pizza--'twas a unanimous vote for Norah Jones because that was the only CD they recognised (as the rest of my CD collection is various soundtracks, John Williams scores, Enya, Sarah Brightman, and Josh *waves flags for film scores and crossover*) We talked about fun times in elementary and middle school while listening to my CD of randomness--I hadn't realised how much I missed talking with them . . . At around 4 or so (they'd come over at 1ish) we hopped into Sarah's truck and headed to Video King to rent something. We didn't find anything we really wanted to watch, but G-Girl had brought her copy of The Reduced Shakespeare Company's "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare", which was hilarious! 'Tis a 90-minute video featuring three actors presenting Shakespeare's entire works in front of a live audience . . . they don't actually act all of the plays though--they do all the histories as one (Amer.) football game and merge the comedies into a "mega-play" type thing . . . I'd recommend it ('twould be great for a SU movie night if we can find a copy--I bet the library might have one) . . .
( excitement on Main St. and why I like tea )
I think this entry's gone on long enough, but I have just one more thing--I'm contemplating changing my default icon to this:
Oh, and if anyone was wondering, I only used an lj-cut because this post was really long without it and I didn't want to take up so much space on your Friends pages . . .
Which fits, I think, although if I change a few answers, I get "Eden" and POTO, which also fit somewhat:
You are La Luna!
If you could be captured in a word, that word is
ethereal. Angelic in silver-white, your
sparkling, shimmering aura is as celestial as
moonlight itself. You're at once childlike and
ancient, innocent and wise, somewhat intangible
and perhaps semi-holy. People adore you for
the crystal purity of your song and your

Time for another exciting update from the world of Michelle [or Lily, for my Grobie friends ;)] . . . my LaunchCast station is grrfully not working right now and I'm on my brother's computer so I can't listen to my Media Player stuff . . . however, I found a nice Classical Crossover station on MSN so all is well . . .
I talked to Erin in London for a bit on Saturday and had fun going to the Brit links on her website, plus felt loved because she posted a few pictures just for me on her website: a shot of the West End (London's theatre district) and a picture of a restaruant called "Virginia Woolf's Grills, Burgers, & Pasta" . . . I wonder if they have Boeuf en Daube . . . hehe. Your pictures are lovely, Erin! Also on Saturday, my family babysat my "adopted" aunt's daughter, Elizabeth (I always have to refrain from calling her Miss Dalloway), who was adopted from China and is adorable. After dinner, we played with her outside--I must have blown bubbles for almost an hour! She absolutely loved the bubbles and tried to catch all of them . . . I don't really like small children all too much, but Elizabeth is alright . . . in small doses . . .
Sunday I sang with my church choir again--'twas fun and I really realised how much I missed singing in a choir--chorus was one of the things I enjoyed most about high school and I was quite saddened when I couldn't join the choir at SU--'tis audition only and you have to be really good to get in (but they sound awesome) . . . I also got to talk to Low-C, which was great since I haven't really talked to her much since the last time I came home for break . . . we're trying to decide whether we want to go see PoA on opening night right after her graduation or whether we want to go to Kylie's party right after graduation and then see PoA on Saturday . . . I think we're leaning towards the former. I filled her in on the movie of PotO and I think we're probably going to see that too . . . we also wondered about how John Williams was going to be able to score Star Wars 3 and Indy 4 at the same time, and then decided that he can do it because he's John Williams . . . there was also slight squee-age over "Remember Me" . . . ;) My family and I went to the mall after lunch and my mom and I looked for something to get my friend Alicia for her wedding gift. While we were passing FYE, I saw a sign advertising something about PoA for $19.99--my first thought was "OOH! The soundtrack's out already!!" and I proceded to rush across the hallway-type thing to check it out . . . unfortunately, 'twas just the video game, but I still checked the soundtrack section just in case . . . I'm such a John Williams fangirl (and it's probably my dad's fault too--he has the original albums for the SW trilogy, ET, Close Encounters, Superman . . . etc). I looked at a bunch of Andrew Lloyd Webber collections and then headed over to the piano/sheet music store to see if they had the sheet music for Closer yet . . . they do, but I didn't have any money with me . . . oh well . . . I better stop now, since my brother sort of wants to use his computer now . . . farewell and have a great day!
I don’t believe horoscopes, but I have mine on my My Yahoo! page because they’re sometimes amusing . . . today’s is actually semi-true though:
"A dear one may tell you to stop daydreaming and start thinking more realistically about your life. Don't listen to them. Keep daydreaming. You can have it all if you keep your goals in sight and your spirit positive."
Woo---I have "experts" telling me to keep daydreaming---I can deal with that! :D
Dr. Richard was telling us today in Bio about how he used to search for earthworms in parks (at night with a flashlight) when he was growing up in London. He was surprised they never arrested him for doing it, but then said "I could have gotten arrested a lot more times when I was younger. But I won’t tell you about that . . well, maybe after you graduate . . .". Does that sound a bit like O, Sarah? hehe . . .
'Tis so pretty outside today! Too bad most of the flowers on the magnolia outside my dorm window have fallen . . . .
Friend participation time! I'm ordering a CD for my mom from Amazon.com for Mother's Day, and I'm going to order one for myself too so I can get free shipping (and more music---yay!). Sooo . . . which album should I get? I'm thinking about gettting Hayley Westenra's Pure, Michael Bublé's debut album, or Enya's A Day without Rain (possibly the soundtrack for Princess Bride, if the album I get for my mom is over $14, since 'tis only $11). Ooh . . . Shooshers had me listen to Ben Jelen and I think I might have to get his album too . . . . Granted, I'm going to get all of these albums (as well as the LotR trilogy soundtrack and Sarah Brightman's Eden and La Luna) *eventually*, but which should I get now? Decisions, decisions . .
I'm back from Spring Break! On one hand, I'm glad to be back with my SU friends . . . on the other hand I don't want classes to start again . . . on the other hand I wish I would have been able to spend more time with my friends over break . . . on the other hand, I got to spend a bunch of time with my family . . .
I got a new CD today--YAY!! Sarah Brightman's The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection :D . . . I found yet another CD I want to get: Andrew Lloyd Webber's Gold which is from a bunch of different musicals . . . sort of like a "best of" album . . .
Hehe--one day in Bio, there was a slide that said "Chromosome Puffs" . . . Dana, Danielle, and I thought that would be a good cereal name . . . . . Danielle actually decorated an empty box with chromosome and DNA-y stuff over break and showed it to Dana and I today---it's hilarious! We're going to give it to Dr. Richard tomorrow . . . hehe
Well . . . I guess I should probably do my Spanish now . . . grr . . .
My wishlist on Amazon.com (note number of soundtracks):
Lord of the Rings trilogy, Original Soundtrack
Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone, Original Soundtrack
A Day Without Rain, Enya
Braveheart, Original Soundtrack
Princess Bride, Original Soundtrack
Come Away with Me, Norah Jones
The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection, Sarah Brightman
I love this song--I hope it wins Best Song at the Oscars . . .
"Into the West" by Annie Lennox, from the Return of the King soundtrack
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore
Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping
What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home
And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All Souls pass
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
We have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
And you'll be here in my arms
And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West
Today in Chem we did ICE tables---that made me happy because 'twas one of the things I actually remembered from AP Chem last year :)
Dana and I spent awhile trying to find Chris as he practised in Stratisnky (sp?) Hall---it took us about 10 minutes---we were expecting to hear him singing, and so repeatedly walked past a room that had someone playing piano while we tried to listen to the practice rooms . . . then we thought Chris might be playing the piano, so we tried to look into the room, to no avail . . . we eventually knocked on the door and found 'twas Chris!
Bio lab was fun today---Dr. Richard is skiing in Canada, so we don't have lecture on Wed or Fri (yay) and we got to watch a movie in lab, called Gattaca--it was really good, but rather chilling, because it could actually happen . . . funny thing---Dana told me after watching Cold Mountain that she realised Jude Law looks like Dr. Richard, and after Gattaca I agree with her (and in the movie, Jude Law had the same British accent as our professor, too!)---rather bizarre . . . especially since my high school Chem teacher looked just like Jeff Corwin---hehe . . . . . . anyways, the movie was quite good (I might rent it when I go home for Spring Break--I bet my dad would like it) and we got out of lab an hour early :D
Other nifty things: I realised that LaunchCast has a Show Tunes station (so that gives me another station to listen to) . . . . plus, somehow my font got changed on here---I don't know how it happened, but I like it---grr to Times New Roman---if I could, I'd change it to Monotype Corsive (pretty script-y font) but 'twould probably cause much complaining because 'tis a little harder to read . . .
Well, I decided to get the CD . . . only thing is, 'twon't (is that even a word?) be shipped until the 17th and will probably get here on the 19th . . . grr . . . oh well, I suppose 'tis ok if I don't get it by Valentine's Day---I can still listen to Josh . . . and eat my bag of Dove Promises . . . . . .
hmm . . . time for a nap . . .
Erin came up with a great idea today--- we should start our own "fraternity" (is it called a fraternity when both guys and girls can be in it? I don't know these things . . .) ------ ΟΔΔ . . . . Omicron Delta Delta ;) (ODD, get it----haha!!!!) Sound's like fun, eh?
I'm twindling (defn: having a deep inner struggle with oneself . . . ok, maybe 'tisn't a deep inner struggle, but oh well . . .)-----I want to buy a CD, but 'tis $25----is that too much for an import?? (I don't know these things either) The CD I'm contemplating is Chris DeBurgh's The Love Songs---he's the one who sings "The Lady in Red," if you've heard of that song (one of the most romantic songs, in my opinion . . .). If I order it today on Amazon (it's not on FYE.com), 'tmight get here on/by Valentine's Day . . . (yes, I know 'tis sad---I'm giving myself a Valentine's present) and then I'll have it to listen to (along with my Josh Groban cds) and feel sorry for myself . . . *sigh* . . . . . . . . . so, do you think I should order the CD?
Wow . . . . methinks I doth need to write about Josh more often in here----I got 10 comments on my last post, which is more than twice the amount of all my other ones!
I just finished watching Notting Hill . . . . *sigh* . . . . . . "I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her"----why does that have to be so true?? Oh well, back to homework . . .
"If there is one thing that is constant in this world, it is the power of music." ~ Josh Groban
Behold the power of music---today I've been feeling rather blah/down and I don't really know why . . . . yesterday I had a great time on a kazoo quest and then watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail (and all the DVD extras) with a bunch of my friends---but then today I just felt blah . . . then "If I Had a Million Dollars" came on the radio and made me feel better---that song's hilarious---I mean how many songs do you know that talk about tree houses, the injustice of bacon not coming prewrapped, llamas (MROOF!!!!), Kraft dinners, and dijon ketchup? Problem is, I don't know the origin of my blah-ness . . . . . . :/

Yay--it snowed last night!! :D 'twasn't really enough to play in (or cancel classes--hehe) but it did snow and 'twas a pretty thing . . . . .
