weird dream again. idk, but i guess we had to make up some school days, so we had to go to this one place. this place is liek in the mountains, and you get there by way of a city street. well part of the path there is grass; one path is up high and the other is about 10 feet below, kind of like at frances park. well i take the low road becuase im jogging alogn the edge and almsot fall. but im in super good shape so me and the other guy with me(one of ym friends, cant rmemebr which), jog the rest of the way there. its like a big castle thing, and all sort sof crazy stuff goes on inside it, skating, etc, etc. idk, just that was weird. i hate when you wake up from a dream youre having and you cant get back into it. but sometiems you can jsut think about what was going on, and what you want to go on, and it will turn into a dream. weird.

note: drove on thursday, wisdom teeth came out on friday.

Redditisne libros? speaking of latin, i was watching seinfeld and kramer says"you know, ive been reading a book about leonardo da vinci, and that means 'from vinci'." haha. anyway. today drew and i find out that our latin reports that we worked on yesterday are actualyl due tomororw. so for once i did somethign the day before it was due, but since i thought it was due thursday and was doing it on wednesday, i geuss i still lose. oh wellll. hmm, ive discovered that if you dont do latin jsut abotu every day, you forget a lot. that is the case with me. we have been workign on that door, and our projects, so no latin perse. then he gives us this packet. its difficult, i have the suspicion that it is all wrong! haha. well thatd be crazy. c show wasnt that funny, excpet when he made fun of lil jon, who is about the worst rapper ever. ah. i miss talking to elise. i call her cell, she does not answer unfortunately for me. i hope to talk to her soon. theres a lot of people that i wish to talk to. ive been told by a friend, adam, to not think about callign them, jsut do it. hes right, if you think about it, you get second thoughts and think about the repercussions and everything. mad tv is funny a lot of the time. i watched it today. so for lent i gave up the internet after school until 6. its crazy, i dont know what to do with myslef. but i played some vid games today and whatnot. skated for liek 10 minutes, it was colder than i thought. well goodnite!

been awhile. anyone miss it? i doubt it. well if you want to read abotu whatever i missed hurr, check the live journal. so last nite, i decided to take a nap at like 6. i set an alarm for 8, so id wake up and coudl do hw orrr wahtever. well, that didnt happen, i.e., i slept till like 12, woke up, almost got up and did hw, then said f it, went back to sleep. my mom did, however, wake me up at five, so i was able to do a little bit of my hw. so thats cool. but it was crazy. you dont realize how much you love sleep until you do something liek that. ive decided that i shoudl do that like, once a month. thatd be good. i felt so rested this morning. i bought soem records this weekend from fbc with drew. got some sweet stuff. to see a list, ask me, or check the lj. ive already made two converts to lj, perhaps a third? i dont know. i cant forget the blurtizzle, thats fo shizzle. ill leave you with this quote i told my friend.

I do not know how to use a phone properly.
If the person does not start talkign 2-3 seconds after you pick up the phone, then hang up.
A person will not get the phone if you are expecting them to.
Do not believe most people when they say "I'll call at (some time of day)"
As technology further advances the phone and computer, seeing people will become less important, until one day, we will never see anyone besides ourselves, there will be no need to talk to anyone in person. Essentially we will be blind.
Humans have an inhibition to further develop every thing they have.
Accents are fun.

  so as i walking through a sunny alleyway on the nice side of town, i stumble over this old carpet. the carpet isnt threadbare, rahter luscious in fact. then i hear someone reading information out of my wallet, becuase i dropped it when i fell. there was noone else in the alley. alas! it was the carpet. turns out this carpet was no ordinary carpet, it was a reading carpet. i was lucky enough to find it, so i kept it. i took it back to my room. or rather it took me backj there, becuase it coudl also fly! and in my room it dwelled, where it read books of all sorts to me for hours on end.

  so i was visiting my "homeland" of russia. as im sailing down the tiber river, i see large, colored loops, kind of resembling cereal. so of coarse i stop and investigate. all of a sudden i see this bird, a rather large, talking toucan swoop down. i ask him who he is, he says "toucan sam i am, and i liek to sniff cereal" so naturally, i smuggle him and the trees that the loops grow on back to america, plant the tree, set sam free to smell the loops, and thats why we have fruit loops.
