“Guess what mom? I survived Blizzard Ann!
I got to see the trailer for Tim Burton’s new film, The Corpse Bride. Got it from poufywerewolf’s journal and it looks great! It has the same sort of animation as The Nightmare Before Christmas and “The Hall of the Mountain King” is playing in the background! ( here.
I’m going to be getting a cell phone this weekend! I’m really excited, I can call anyone in the US for FREE on weekends and after 9 on weekdays! WhooOOoo! It might apply to Canada though too, I should check into that. But yes, I want to get a cheap, sexy flip phone and then can enjoy putting everyone’s numbers in. ^^ “I love technology.”
After school yesterday I caught a ride with Shannon to the grocery store to pick up cheap snacks then returned to her house. I played with Rattiekins ( I can never remember her pet rat’s names so I make up dumb ones for them XD ) while she cleaned the bathroom and did Van Halen karaoke with the toilet plunger. Vogele came after awhile and we sat downstairs to watch two hours of Stargate SG 1. I didn’t really like it, but didn’t say anything because Vogele probabbly would have left if we didn’t watch it. XD While we were eating downstairs Shannon’s mom came down to see if we wanted to spend the night since the weather was getting really bad. It was okay with Vogele but my parents wouldn’t let me because Shannon had been sick on Monday and yet they wouldn’t pick me up even though it was blizzarding out. So we watched Napoleon Dynamite, which I loved, and then walked home boot less through Blizzard Ann and knee deep snow so I wouldn’t catch a cold. There’s logic for you.
I was still pissed about not being able to stay over when I woke up this morning and confined myself to watching a bit of TV ( I don’t watch a lot of TV ). and although it probablly isn’t teaching our children political correctness when it comes to wiccians or pagans, I thought it was a pretty sweet show. I like the art, and it seems like something Casey and Caroyln would have watched when they were younger. So I guess now I have three shows to watch!
I did go out to the mall to look at phones today, but saw that the Norwegian/Swedish shop was having major discounts so I got two pins that said “I’m Swedish, but I’m taking pills for it” and “Pray for me, my wife is Swedish”. XDD YESS! Not to mention I finally got to stop my the grocery store to get a money order for my Harry and the Potters shirt. My sister also forbade me from Napoleon Dynamite impressions because I sound to much like him. I got to wear some new clothes and I felt really in tune with all my classes. Several friends were gone for sickness among other things, but at least Ryan was there in Math. He’s my genius that gets us extra credit while I joke around and draw pretty pictures on our papers. He’s cute. My dad also surprised me this morning with several pins he got from the DC Comics booth at his work convention. ( Talk about random. ) They’re awesome. Johanna and I started our Web class today, I have a feeling I’ll have a lot of free computer time. Now all I need to do is find Monica and time when she can teach me how to crochet. Oh! And my mom got me two new journals last night,
very pretty little things. I’ll have fun with those.
Killer Angels is a very sexy book.
EDIT: Lord, so nice to have the speakers working again. I’ve been missing my playlist like crazy. And did anyone see Lost this week? I time recorded but still missed the last couple of minutes. I’m rather glad we went the time of year we did, I don’t think the city would have been as beautiful in the summer or spring. There was a gray, wet feeling over the city, I loved it. My favorite days were the first that we were there, we took the subway to the hotel and when I caught sight of the melted snow dripping down the subway stairs I knew I would love the city. The grey sky and light snow on the ground made the trees look back and turned the whole place into a black and white picture of a city of rain and fog.
Boston Public Library: Stunning murals, there were great archways and even a courtyard! There was a room upstairs with wood paneling and all around the top was one of my passions, the story of the Holy Grail. Arthurian legend fascinates me.
Museum of Fine Arts: There were some great displays on olden day dresses when we came through. I didn’t get enough time at this place either, there were some Indian displays that I didn’t even get to look at. They did have several impressionism paintings, although none of them were the De Ga dancer paintings I liked.
Boston Aquarium: My sister and I cooed over the penguins and seals for most of the day. What can I say? I’m a sucker for most animals smaller than a breadbox. And seals are one of my favorites, mostly because I’m so in love with selkies.
Gargoyles Grotesques Chimeras: A really beautifully gothic little shop on Newbury St. I wish I could have more time to sort through everything in the shop. I only had a couple of minutes and picked up some wonderful black and white photos of gargoyles on Notre Dame.
Boston Commons: I would actually have liked to see this park in the summer. When the fountains hadn’t been drained and the pond wasn’t frozen. I’ll bet it’s wonderful. It was nice while we were there though too, and one night when I looked out it was covered in ground mist, such eerie beauty.
Freedom Trail: I mostly liked the cemeteries on the trail. The headstones were so lovely and old. Not only that, but I loved the cobbled streets that ran around the Green Dragon.
Subway: The Boston Subway was much better than other public transports I’ve been on, and there was a train called Wonderland! Riding around on it seeing signs reading “Transfer here to go to Wonderland” was really fun. It also had a tone that none of the other cars had.
I looked at some thrift stores while I was there and was disgusted at the high prices. I mean really, there was nothing under $60 in either store. And when we looked for left over merchandise from the LoTR exhibit at the MoS we found: two busts of Sauruman and some BBC recordings of the books. And then on top of all that, when we were both on our way to Boston and coming back, our first flights were delayed and very nearly missed our second plane. We were literally running through the MN airport trying to get to our gate, the response of the man scanning our boarding passes was: “Wow. You made good time!”
The trip really ended Sunday night when my sister and I got dressed up and went to a fancy schmancy party at the Ritz Carleton. The bellman in the lobby that directed us upstairs was quite possibly one of the most handsome men I have ever seen. I wandered around the party ( ’twas full of librarians ) with 7up in a champagne glass. After a couple of hours we turned up our hoods and walked back to our hotel through the light snow, full of fancy finger desserts and strawberries. XD
B) I don’t seem to be able to keep up with my LJ flist as of late, sorry if I’ve missed anyone’s important entries.
C) I’m leaving for Boston, Wednesday after school,
let’s home it doesn’t turn out to be an episode of Lost. I might be online for a bit tomorrow though.
