House Cleaning


So as many of you know, my grandparents are moving to an apartment so we've been cleaning out their house. In the process we've found many...interesting things. I thought I give you some pics that I particularly like of some old stuff we've found. Enjoy!


Me and my sister found this old picture and had a good laugh over that baby. It just tickled our funny bones, and was a good relief from all the depressing feelings of moving.








This is my grandma's wedding dress. My great grandma made it for her and covered every single one of those buttons with fabric by hand.

















Another old polaroid that we found. Please boys, for the sake of all that is good and handsome SHAVE THOSE MUSTACHES!!!







This wasn't really a find, but it certainly was one of the hardest things for me to leave. With the risk of sounding corny, I have to say that it's been their my whole musical journey. It's probably what made me want to learn to play. It's going to my aunt who really loves music when my grandparents move. I know in my heart that that is the best solution, but I'm still going to miss the out of tune old beast.






This is a polaroid of my grandparents on their wedding day that I'm holding, with them in the present day in the background. I don't know if it's just because I took the picture, but I love it. I'm thinking of entering it in a photo contest. What do you think? Should I enter this one?








So that's that. I took a ton of pictures, so be prepared for picture posts! Toodles.

99 Steps. . . I mean, Questions.

In case you are confused, 99 Steps was the title of a Nancy Drew book. At least, I think it was.

AZABAZA with some school jazz and randomness on the side

Hey there folks!

Right now I am chilling in careers class and I just finished writing my test! (: It was pretty simple. We get to use this cue card and fill in as much info that we need for the test on it! :P That makes it even easier.

So, I'm chilling on Facebook and blogging (obviously). They unblocked Facebook and Twitter at schools now because they wanted kids to use it for school-related stuff....clearly not the smartest descision, but whatever.



School ends in like....18(ish) minutes and I can't wait! IT'S FRIDAAAAAAY!....the thirteenth! o: but I'm not superstitious so that's okay on my part. (: But there's Youth tonight and that's always a fun time. :D :D It makes my crappy week seem a bit brighter. haha! ...but no, seriously, high school is pretty rough. At least when it's close to Finals for the semester! S: soooo much work and studying and stressssssssss! GAAAAAH! I'm starting to freak out just thinking about it, so I'll change to some less serious-ness.

BLUE
LEMON YELLOW
BOOM
RIGHT THERE
SNAAAP
SHUFFLING PAPERS
WHY?
GIGGLING
WHYYYYY?
OH YAH.
GRAAAAAAAAAAAH!
DO YOU HAVE GOOD FEELING ON THIS?

That was just some random jazz that I chose to write down. Some of it was stuff people said but some of it was just my randomness. ;P

Toodles!

Dessssss♥

P.S. I'M EDITING THIS NOW AND ADDING IN..........

MINUTEEEEEEEES!

THEN I CAN GO HOMEEE! :D :D :D

okaaay, bye for real! ;P

Alternate Themes: Second Edition

If you don't know what happened to the first edition, go back two posts. You should find one with a similar title to this one. Now, Monk's theme song was the longest, so don't expect any of the other editions to be as long as the first. Except for Summer's Not Hot, which is, in fact, an actual song, not just a theme song.

For my next display of the creative genius of me and my brother, I will be doing the theme song for Psych, an epic and hilarious show if ever there was one.



 I'll get you a link. It's not the official video, from any of the seasons, but it has clips from the episodes and the whole song, so it's good enough. Sorry I can't get the video actually on here. I don't know how Sunny does it.

I'm not tech savvy.

Anyway, here.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4yl6w0NmAY

Ok, and in case you missed them, here are the lyrics.

In between the lines
There's a lot of obscurity.
I'm not inclined to resign
To maturity.
If it's all right,
Then you're all wrong,
But why bounce around
To the same ____ song? (yeah yeah, some don't consider that a swear word, BUT I DON'T CARE! so hah.)
You'd rather run when you can't crawl.
I know, you know
That I'm not telling the truth.
I know, you know!
They just don't have any proof.
Embrace the deception,
Learn how to bend.
Your worst inhibitions tend to
PSYCH you out in the end.

Ok, those are thie original lyrics. Except for the part in brackets. That was me.

And this is me and Wilson's alternate (yet still the same) version.

In betwixt the stripes
There's a bunch of uncertainty.
I don't prefer to resort
To resposibility.
If it's okay,
Then no one's right.
But why hop about
To the identical dumb tune?
You prefer to dash when you can't worm.
I'm aware, you're aware
That I'm lying through my teeth.
I'm aware, you're aware!
They just have no evidence.
Hug the dishonesty,
Pick up how to stoop.
Your strongest restrictions are inclined to
GET you good at the finish!

X) Well, I hope that was entertaining for you. I also hope that if you haven't already, you'll give Psych a try. It really is quite good. Everyone we've introduced it to has loved it. In the first ep of season 1, there's a brief part near the beginning that can be seen as sketchy if you're not expecting it. But it's nothing too bad. TRY IT! YOU'LL LIKE IT! :D it has something for everybody. :D

Hey, in hindsight, this post was just as long as Monk's! :S ;)

P.s. Actually, I just realized that the link I posted it a bit longer than the actual theme song. . . I mean, it repeats. But that's ok, I'll still leave it the same. Also, I think I'll post a link to an epic fan-made video, that I think Sunny once posted, called "The Pineapple Song". The people in Psych have a thing for pineapples.



There's one in every ep! Anyhow, here's that epic link. X)

blahblah...

I don't want to go to school on Monday ! ): my plan is to build a time machine and travel back to the end of school on the 23rd of December and then Christmas break can start all over. :D great plan right?? ....yah, if only it would work.

ANYWAY, I'M IN A STRANGE MOOD....
ehem,

I feel different, not the same, this kind of feeling I can't explain. There's only one thing that I can do, I feel....(insert the name of my strange mood here).
hahahah, Zaboomafoo :D



but yes, I am in an odd mood...oops sorry, STRANGE MOOD. That's better. I'm feeling like 12938014323481 emotions all at on-- waaaait, WHY am I telling you this?! ..right, because it's easier to type than to talk about! :P plus, I have nothing better to do, so WHY NOT RIGHT?!

I'll leave you with something very random;

pickled cheese on a fuzzy foot.

Alternate Themes

Yes yes, I know, I posted last time. But who cares, really? Well, I guess I do. But whatever. SO! Has anyone ever seen/heard about Monk? Yes? No? A show of virtual hands, please. What? You haven't?!?! Well well well! I think I've tried to explain about it b4 on here, so I won't try to do that again, but instead, will post a link to the theme song.



Actually, no, I won't, because I can't find a good one. Just go watch an episode! :P the theme song should come in after a couple minutes of video, if not right away. but sometimes the pilot episode (which would be the first episode of a show, for those of you who might not know) doesn't have a theme song, so keep that in mind.

ANYWAY!! enough of my rambling. Let me say what I came here to say in the first place! :P ;) so, my brother and I watch a lot of shows. Sort of. Not as many as some people I know (you know who you are, TV-addicts.) ;) , but enough. One time, after watching the aforementioned show, Monk, and humming the theme song, we decided to make up a theme song for it, one that said the exact same thing, but said it differently. Like this. Here is the original lyrics for the Monk theme song:

It's a jungle out there!
Disorder and confusion everywhere.
No one seems to care,
Well, I do!
Hey! Who's in charge here?
It's a jungle out there!
Poison in the very air we breathe!
Do ya know what's in the water that you drink?
Well, I do!
And it's a-ma-zing!
People think I'm crazy,
'Cause I worry all the time.
If you paid attention,
You'd be worried, too.
You better pay attention,
Or this world we love so much,
Might just kill you!
I could be wrong now,
BUT I DON'T THINK SO!!
'Cause it's a jungle out there,
It's a jungle out there!

and now, here's the theme song me and Wilson made up. Note how we used words that mean the same thing as the original:

It's a forest outside!
Chaos and commotion all around.
Nobody appears concerned,
Well, I am!
Oi! Who's in control here?
It's a forest outside!
Toxin in the oxygen we inhale!
Do ya realize what's in the H2O you imbibe?
Well, I do!
And it's in-cred-ible!
Humans find me nutzy,
'Cause I freak out constantly.
If you observed,
You would freak out, too!
You better be observant,
Or this planet we adore,
Might just murder you!
I may be incorrect at this point,
BUT I THINK NOT!!
'Cause it's a forest outside,
It's a forest outside!

HA! X) I love those things. yes, we made more than one. we made ones for Psych, Cheers, The Twilight Zone, and even Merlin! Even tho Merlin and The Twilight Zone don't have songs so much as a spoken intro. Oh, and I also made an alternate version of Selena Gomez's "The Summer's Not Hot." because it came on sometime in december when we had my ipod on shuffle, and since it was very obviously NOT summer, we decided to make a winter version. X) so yes, perhaps i'll regale you with our creative genius some time. but for now, I go!

*poof*
