- dancing like fools
- reenacting scenes from movies
- making music videos - usually for characters in T.V. shows that had huge "shipper" fan bases.
- "I made this video late last night, so it isn't very good, but I'm bored and am going to post it"
- "My girlfriend put me up to this."
- "This is crap, but I'm putting it up anyway."
You know what? Don't tell me how good it would have been if only you'd tried at all. Why do I want to watch your video if even you think it sucks? I much prefer the person who says, "This is my first video! I hope you like it!!" Why? 'Cuz that person, while still showing modesty, takes ownership of her project.
Own your silliness.
Own your dorkiness.
Own your skills.
Own your shipper loving self!

Here is how I connected them through T.V.:
1. Kristen Bell was in Veronica Mars with Allyson Hannigan (recurring)
2. Allyson was in Buffy the Vampire Slayer with Nathan Fillion (recurring)
3. Nathan was in Firefly/Serenity with Summer Glau.
Sadly, it was not enough to get the job done! I wasted my look up on Summer Glau because I didn't recognize the name - I felt so stupid when I saw her picture! What a waste!!
Likewise, Matt stumped me with his movie quote. I just looked up the quote and it is from Space Camp.
Congratulations to you Arfanser and Matt!! You may happily await your cookies now. I'll bake them sometime this week!
Which Twin Peaks character are you?
You're Special Agent Dale Cooper. You're often too brilliant for people to really follow, but your infectious enthusiasm makes up for the fact that you're frequently incomprehensible. You are smart, intuitive, clear-headed, compassionate, and cute as hell -- about your only flaw is your insane coffee consumption.
Take this quiz!

If you stump me you will recieve the satisfaction of knowing you stumped the master. You may even get some cookies -the number of cookies depends on how many people stump me & on how much time I have to bake!
My only rule, and this is really for Matt and Y: please do not quote kung fu movies or some other movie that you know damn good and well there is absolutely no chance I have seen because no one has ever heard of it except for you two!

- Thank you Squishy for letting Panda and me borrow Corner Gas. It is my new favorite show. We watched it on Saturday night and I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes. I couple of times I even had to pause the DVD because I was laughing so much.
- I think I get a lot more work done in the computer lab at school than in front of my computer at home. I'm not sure why this is, but I think I'll be testing this theory out by spending more time at school. With my extra time I plan to do the things I love: actually see my friends, blog, crochet, and watch T.V.
- I have a lot of crochet projects to start and finish before Christmas. I'm getting worried.
- After class tonight (yes, tonight - Sunday), I went bowling and bowled a 139 - personal best! Yeah, I rock.
- Subway no longer sells Sour Cream and Onion Baked Lays. As you can imagine, I am extremely upset about this.
- If you want someone to find your home or your place of business, then post your freaking address where it can be seen easily from the road! I cannot stress this enough.
- I am in love with the song Fidelity by Regina Spektor. It has been on both Veronica Mars and Grey's Anatomy. Those two shows have the best music!
- I have the 2nd Grey's Anatomy soundtrack. It is great (as you might expect), but I didn't fall as madly in love with it as I did with the first one. If anyone wants a listen, they are welcome. My favorite song on there is I Hate Everyone by Get Set Go (they also sing Wait, from the first album - this song is so good it makes my heart hurt just a little). A close second is Homebird by Foy Vance followed by I Me You I'm Your by Jim Noir.
- I went camping a couple of weekends ago, and I had s'mores that were out of this world!

I also remember a few of the characters such as Herbert and Lulu (two bugs that would drop down and talk to someone through a window), and Admiral Bird. My strongest memory, after the theme song, is of all these different sized and shaped boxes and that when someone (I don't know his name) would open the boxes he would hear sounds.
Anyway, here is a YouTube clip of the opening credits. Below you will find the lyrics in case you want to sing along. Even though this was far from my favorite show as a child, I still have a soft spot for it & the song.
Pinwheel, pinwheel, spinning around. Look at my Pinwheel and see what I've found.
Pinwheel, pinwheel, where have you been? Hello, how are you, and may I come in?
Pinwheel, pinwheel spinning around. Look at my Pinwheel and see what I found.
Pinwheel, pinwheel, breezy and bright. Spin me good morning, spin me good night.
Theme song music by Jay Lee, lyrics by Janet Gardner
