-And Then I Died by the Moaning Myrtles
I come to you on my Netbook again today, dear readers of blogs. I am testing to see what sites my school has deigned to block. Facebook, of course. And Twitter. Blogspot is most obviously not blocked, otherwise I would not be able to come to you on my Netbook.
I also discovered that Pandora is not blocked, which can only be good. If you do not know what Pandora is, click the link. Click it now.
The Diva is sitting at our desktop working on her History homework (which she of course put off until now)* and is also on her Netbook. She has just made a smiley that is very reminiscent of Spongebob the background image.
Back to Pandora. I am listening to it, which is why it continues to return to my thoughts. I am listening to a song by Charlie Winston, which reminds me that I want to rave about him. Charlie Winston is a spectacular musician. I absolutely adore him. My favorite of his songs is probably My Name, which is very dark, but musically beautiful. In Your Hands is a really fun, playful song that is, also, amazing musically. And Like a Hobo has a great music video. Oh my gosh, I'm just fangirling here! *blushes*
I just tried to link to the songs I mentioned, and made a terrible discovery! My school has blocked YouTube! This is almost unbearable! I must find a way around it. Time to put my hacking skillz to use.** Until I figure that out, however, I will just link them from my desktop. Moving on.
My mom spontaneously decided to take The Wordsmith and I out to lunch. The Diva was still sleeping, and anyway, she claims not to like Indian food, which is what we got. Can I just say how much I love Indian food? A freaking lot, that is how much. We also stopped by the dollar store next door to pick up some pens and pencils for the school year. I love back-to-school shopping. And I love school. Which I'm sure is not normal, but I don't care. I'm not normal, and I love school.
I think that is enough for today's blog. Have a wonderful day, dear blog readers!
With much haxoring,
Something I learned today: YouTube. Is. Blocked. On. My. Netbook. Clearly, this will not fly. Do not despair, I will fix this problem, and hopefully some day this month I can tell you how I learned how to bypass the block. >=) <--- evil smile
*I really shouldn't be talking, since I haven't finished my homework, either. Actually, I need to go finish that... I have a scary amount left. Crap.
**I went to engineering camp at Iowa State University in Ames (which is where Aaron Nordyke of Ministry of Magic went to school. No, it is not creepy that I know this. Also, he lives in Kansas City, like, five minutes from my house. Okay, I'm ending this creepiness right now). Anyway, at engineering camp we did all sorts of things, including learning one method of hacking. It is largely useless and simplistic. But I know it. And I try it sometimes.
