hell's kitten

I saw previews for the news a few hours ago...and they were talking about someone being "fatally shot" in some neighborhood. The name sounded familiar, and I thought it was someone I'd gone to middle school with, but I decided I was thinking of someone else with the same first name, but different last name. I just now looked in my yearbook, and I was right the first time. Assuming there isn't two people with the first name, which is possible, but I doubt it, it's the same guy. I didnt really know this guy, and what I did know, I didnt like, but still.....

orientation/new friend/bigass watermelons

Freshman orientation was today. Boring piece of shit-crap. It was just a 3-hour assembly. But we got doughnuts. :-) And we made a new friend. Emily found this guy there and after talking to him, found out that he's a senior who just moved here from Germany with his brother. Nifty. It was smart of him to go to the freshamn orientation, though, since, otherwise, they'd expect you to know everything. Anyway, he looked so lonely sitting all by himself in the bleachers (we student council people got to sit on the stage...everyone else in the bleachers....faculty in chairs in between), so during our little break time thing, emily brought him over and introduced us all. his name's raphael. he's really nice, too. we were all kinda hyper, though...i hope we didnt scare him...lol

I know a lot more freshmen-to-be than I realized. I saw melissa, gavin, baryl, the zeko's, and a whole bunch of ex-cs'ers.
That whole thing ended at about 1230, and me, lauren, juliana, katrina, ali and emily all went to subway for lunch. we invited raphael, but he didnt want to. damn. we were done about 145. Then I took katrina home and lauren gave juliana a ride and we three went to my house and hung out until about 530.

My mom's friends are out of town, and they own this little "garden" thing that has watermelons, chilis, corn, all kinds of squash, etc... and they told all their friends (us) to go over there and pick whatever we wanted. Sunday evening, mom and I drove out there (just about 10 minutes out of town) and got 3 watermelons (huge ones, about 20 pounds each), 2 pumpkins, and a bunch of beans. LAst night when people came over, I gave one watermelon to lauren and one to kira. Today, mom cut me, juliana and lauren one, and when I took juliana home at 530, we stopped by their place again and got juliana a watermelon.
Who else hates American Idol? Kira made me watch it one time, and I didnt really care for it. I hate all this hype surrounding it, though. The two finalists were on trl the other day, they made the cover of our local tv guide, and now they're on my aol welcome screen. The guy looks like a girl.
School starts tomorrow. Fuck. I suppose I really should skim through the cliff notes of the 4 summer reading books I ignored all summer....

Juliana made me watch 7th heaven today. I saw a face that I thought looked familiar and I was right!! He's so cute. That sharpie commercial is hilarious...

A cookie to anyone who can help me figure out how old he is.
I'm sorry. I don't mean to sound unpatriotic or anything, and I'm almost afraid to say this. I hate it when newscasters or whoever say "After 9/11, no American's life will ever be the same again." I'm sorry, but my life hasn't changed one bit. Except for not being able to watch bill maher anymore, that is... I know probably thousands of peoples' lives were changed, and those people never will forget 9/11, but please don't speak for the whole nation. I was lucky enough not to know anyone in NY at the time, and lucky enough to live in a crappy town where no one moves away from, thus resulting in families living close together (did that make sense?). And I'm sorry, but get over it. BEfore you get mad, what I mean by get over it, is, stop hogging the media with stories about it. I, in no way, expect those who lost people to get over it, and even some who hadn't, but I don't need to be reminded constantly about it. Things would be a lot happier if I could just once turn on the TV without seeing an ad for some show about it, glance at my kitchen table without seeing TIME, with a huge picture of the TT on the cover, etc... Please don't hurt me.

I think it's funny how, when listening to the radio, I can know what song it is, but my brain doesnt get it until halfway through. I'm sitting here listening to "around the world" by rhcp, singing along, then 2 minutes into the song, it strikes me, "wow! it's around the world!! they never play this song!" It even happens with songs I hate. Halfway through singing along to pod's satellite, I realize, "hey! i hate this song! dammit!" then I change it.
