It is absolutely chucking it down with rain at the moment. I am very glad for this, after it being alarmingly hot yesterday and Sunday. I, rather stupidly, went on during the hottest part of the afternoon. We had a picnic to celebrate the end of exams, and went swimming (which was deliciously cold and stopped me wanting to collapse in a pile of melted goo for a while). The really annoying thing is that I'd just caught up on all the sleep I'd missed during exam season, when it got too hot for me to sleep properly. The important part, is no more exams! I now only have to go into college for leavers day (which annoyingly is first thing in the morning and on the same day as our leavers ball). Well, and results day, but I'm not thinking about that yet. Or at least trying not to.

In celebration of finishing our exams, we had a Pirates of the Caribbean marathon. It took me two hours to get there. It should have been a half hour journey at most. They closed part of the A14 as someone was attempting to jump off a bridge so none of the buses were getting through. I waited an hour, at which point my mum gave me a lift to another village whose bus service wasn't as badly affected. It was a nightmare. I did get there eventually though. There was much rum present, although I stuck to ginger beer (which is my favourite drink ever). It was good fun, even though it got rather hot due to how many of us there were crammed into my friend Emma's living room. And pizza and ice cream! I do like my friends rather.

I had a great time watching Glastonbury at the weekend. I saw the whole of Paul Simon's and Elbow's sets, as well as bits of Mumford and Sons, Paolo Nutini, Laura Marling, Pendulum and Jessie J. I sadly missed the Kaiser Chiefs due to Paul Simon, but that is what the internet is for! I plan to watch various bits and pieces on the BBC website, as I got really into it this year. And due to the lack of exams, I can do all of this with a guilt free conscience. That and read and watch tv. It's weird though, I keep feeling like I should be doing something. Sadly, the one thing I really need to do (move all my school notes off my bedroom floor) requires boxes, which we don't have. I am looking forward to seeing the floor again and not having to leap over piles of paper to get to the linen basket.

Doctor Who, Episode 5, The Rebel Flesh )

I am currently on study leave and I am waiting for Monty Python's Oliver Cromwell song to finish loading so I can listen to it for revision. My friends keep sending me really useful revision materials. It's helping loads, and making it a bit less tedious. Now if only I could understand maths I would be all set! Well, mostly set.

School stuff. Specifically, leaving. )

My friends are also helping me in my quest to find a yellow dress for our Leavers Ball. Yellow very rarely suits me but I love the colour. I want to look bright and cheery and not sad. It's going to be fun (even if I have to think about it just as a summer ball and not as a leavers thing as that freaks me out).

January exam seasons has officially started. Hooray!

I have done two out of the six I am sitting, am fractionally less exhausted than I was last week and think I might actually know some maths. Maybe. I am planning on doing lots of revision during my Critical Thinking lesson tomorrow. Critical Thinking is perfect for revising maths with my friend Ruth! What is slightly worrying is that, even when talking about binomials and writing equations all over our hands (cue many poor jokes about "knowing it like the back of our hands"), we are still the least disruptive in the class. Everyone is just taking it to fill up their time table. It doesn't help that our teacher doesn't seem to care about our maths revision. I'm not entirely sure she's even noticed we're doing it. And we sit right at the front! It's ridiculous. After doing that for two weeks, we didn't think we could reach any new heights of geekiness. And then we rushed to the library at the end of lunch to get a table. I just hope all this productivity pays off!

I also had a meeting today about how to get more people to come to early modern history fictional book group (it's such a snappy title!). Our main problem is that, even with the promise of baked goods, the only people who turned up were me and the other guy running it, and two of our friends we'd cornered in corridors and at lunch. Current plan of attack: skip the long book, read the next (shorter!) one, promise even more baked foods, get our own email address and make giant posters. Also in an effort to attract people with the pretty, we're going to put on random episodes of the Tudors in between books. I have never seen it, but various history friends said it was hilarious. That and see who else we can guilt into coming. We may actually succeed at this now that my entire history class have tasted the wonder that is Alex's brownies. There is hope yet for us in the battle of the history book groups!

Now I am very tired and it's at times like this I wish I could nap when I wasn't ill. Ah well.

That was my favourite joke I heard over the Christmas period. It's slightly rubbish, but still rather awesome. And I love the fact that I thought I'd misheard it and didn't understand it for a good five minutes.

I, rather to my own suprise, had a rather pleasant Christmas. Family were, as per usual, difficult at times, but that's to be expected really. And to be completely honest, it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. Things so very rarely are. Nobody made any stunningly inappropriate comments. Nobody got something they loathed. The "surprise" my Grandma gave me isn't terrifying. Overall, a resounding success I feel!

Also, going back to school has (so far) been alright, despite the looming storm cloud which is January exams. I actually feel like I'm vaguely prepared for them! A group of my friends have been organising maths meet ups in the library in town which have been immensely helpful. So I'm hoping that the panic will not be too extreme this time round.

So in general, things are looking up at the moment. I continue to be surprised by this fact, but I don't care, it's still awesome.

Also awesome: retaining The Ashes! =D

Bruges!

I am currently bogged down in a pile of history coursework. I am not enjoying it. At all.

But I am trying to be positive, so I will write about my recent trip to Bruges! I went for three days from Sunday to Tuesday with my Mum and Dad. It was awesome. I had the most amazing hot chocolate and in general ate lots and lots. The ground was covered in two inches of hailstones when we arrived. It was like walking on tiny balls of polystyrene which was rather weird. Very slippy! We went on a boat trip because the weather didn't look too bad, and then promptly got bucketed on. It was still good fun though. We mainly spent time wandering around, looking in shops and stopping in cafes. Although we did go to visit the Church of Our Lady briefly. The atmosphere in there was rather odd though. Part of it was used to display art and house a museum, whilst other areas were still in use as a church. As a result, it ended up feeling like neither. I haven't been to a church in about two years though, but it just didn't feel comfortable to me. Overall, a really fun trip, even if I ended up incredibly tired. The only real downside was getting stuck outside the port of Dover for 2 and a half hours due to a force 8 gale.

My brother got back from a school trip to New York thos afternoon, and very kindly brought me back a fridge magnet to add to my collection. I am running out of space to put them on my fireplace though, and may have to put some on the actual fridge. When I move out, my fridge will not my bare!

Long, rambly post today. My brain is a bit of a confuddly mess right now.

School talk. Wow. )

Also this week we had a fundraiser for Breast Cancer! I was involved in helping, which resulted in me spending my entire lunchtime dressed as a pink fairy outside the main entrance to school with another fairy and a table loaded with sweets. We had sponge the teacher, balloons and a cake stall, as well as a "spot the pink fairy game." If you bought a breast cancer ribbon, you got a token which at lunch you could exchange for a packet of sweets if you found a fairy. It was really good fun. Although we did have someone come up to us and say "I have a token, but I haven't found a fairy." We just turned round and pointed out the wings. You'd have thought that and the giant sign which said "Pink Fairy Station" would have given it away. None of us dress like that just for the sake of it. Especially not the guys in wigs, tutus and ponchos (they raised loads of money).

Yesterday was a very surreal day. I went to work and there was a fundraiser at the church over the road which my boss and his wife went to part way through. First of all, my Mum cam over and give me some pieces of cake which Ron (my boss) had bought for me. Ron had tried to bring them himself, but being the person he is, got waylaid talking to the many many people in the village he knows. Then Chris (Ron's wife) came back, asked me if I'd like and Indian Head Massage and then sent me over the road with three pounds to go have one. So I had a head massage from my next door neighbour who's daughter used to babysit me and ended up missing a good twenty minutes of my shift. It was all rather surreal. Apparently (or at least, according to my mum who had a long chat with Ron and Chris at the fundraiser), they'd noticed that I'd been a bit off and hadn't seen me walk past to go catch my school bus a couple of days during the week (I normally wave at Ron as I go past). I love my work and them so very much. And I got to see an interview with Haile Gebrselassie as part of the BBC coverage of the Great North City Games (we won! Yay!). He is the most smiley amazing athlete and I'm sad he didn't break the course record for the Great North Run. Under an hour though!

And that I think is a good note to end on. A nice cheery athletics based one.

I spent the majority of last week painting my brother's bedroom, which was actually quite fun if rather time consuming due to the lack of flat walls. Although it probably would have been better if my brother had done some more of it. It does look rather nice though.

Over the weekend, there was a "Vintage Cream Tea Weekend" in my village. I honestly think they are trying to win some sort of quaint English village award. That or they are doing their best to emulate many of the villages from Midsomer Murders. They had bunting, a WI stall and brass band music which appeared to be coming from the shrubbery. Although the cream tea I had was actually very good. I am slightly sad to say it was the first one I'd had all year which didn't have squirty cream out of a can. I don't think I've had a single one with clotted cream this year. I spent the majority of the time I was there trying not to laugh hysterically. I only partially succeeded. Although it was nowhere near as funny as when we went round the open gardens in the village and ended up having tea and cake in the garden of the vicarage with the vicar's children playing music on the oboe and violin respectively in the background.

Bank Holiday Monday! AKA, lots of cricket! )
Alas, the school year is near... )

Now I am going to make myself some more cheese on toast with cranberry jelly. It is quite possibly my favourite savoury snack of all time. Cranberry jelly is one of my favourite things about Christmas, and Sainsbury's had some of their Christmas stock in yesterday so my Mum bought me some. I am incredibly happy about this.

Summer!

Jul. 23rd, 2010 05:25 pm
croissantkatie: (Default)
I think I have drunk too much ribena. I didn't know such a thing was possible.

Anyway! It is now the summer holidays! We broke up on Wednesday at lunch. My last lesson of the year was tutor, so a bunch of people skipped and went home even earlier. This meant that there we all got a larger share of the box of chocolates my tutor brought in. School generally for the last week was actually pretty good. I was helping organise the History Conference on Monday and Tuesday, which was fun and I got to hear some really interesting talks. It also helped that we didn't really do much, and even when we did, the teachers tried to make it a bit more interesting because our attention spans were even shorter than normal.

To celebrate the holidays, me and a bunch of my friends had a gathering. The summer vibe was rather spoiled at one point when it hailed, but it was good fun. However, whilst playing the water game (listing things in a category, any repetition or hesitation and you get splashed), someone made us do digits of pi. The only reason we got further than three decimal places is because Ryan told us what to say. Someone only got splashed when they were foolish enough to ignore him. I was also sadly disheartened by how poorly they did when I gave them famous detectives. They only got three! Although as my Mum later pointed out, most people aren't quite as obsessed by murder mysteries as I am.

And now, onto today! I finally got round to watching the Doctor Who Confidential which went with the Big Bang. My family had recorded it for me at the time, but for some strange reason I hadn't watched it. It's hardly been anytime at all since Series 5 finished and I'd already partially forgotten the warm fuzzy glow the show gave me.

As of tomorrow, I am off to France for two weeks with my family where I will have no internet. I am still not sure if I am looking forward to it or dreading it, but we shall see. And hopefully the Campion book I ordered off Amazon will arrive before we leave as I really want to read it. I kind of doubt it will turn up, but I can still hope.

Things have been rather busy lately. My Grandad was in hospital up until yesterday as he had a kidney operation, was released and then had to be rushed back in because of a suspected heart attack. It's all been rather surreal for me as they live so far away, and I only see them a few times a year. He's out now though and we haven't had any more panicked calls from my Grandma, which is definitely a good sign.

In slightly more positive news, it was Village Sports Day last Saturday. I ran the hoopla stall (even a week afterwards, I am still incredibly relieved that I managed to talk them out of putting me on slippery pole) and did rather well in the produce show. My Duck Mobile (which I think of rather like the batmobile, but cheerier and a really poor form of transport) won third place in the handicraft category. There are clearly benefits to the normal judges not being able to make it as it was never going to be up their street. And I also won my running race! However, as various people pointed out, I also came last. I however don't care. I have a trophy. A trophy which now had my name on twice (the first time, I came second (also last given the huge field of two) but the winner couldn't keep the trophy due to living outside the village parish). I am very happy about this.

Sunstroke, heatstroke, you name it... )

After getting lots of sleep last night, I feel much better now. So I can now attempt to do my history homework. It's actually quite interesting, I just can't quite seem to summon up the energy. And then there's the World Cup Final tonight. I am almost looking forward to it, which is slightly strange. I think it's to do with the fantasy football league I'm in. It's addictive and I really am far too competitive.
croissantkatie: (morgana)
This week has been rather tumultuous to say the least. I am however, trying not to focus on the negatives. I did that yesterday and got rather bogged down in it all.

The positive things mainly focus around my teachers at school, who all seem to have relaxed slightly now that exams are over (well, at least until January!). As such, I have so far had a rather strange knitting analogy from my maths teacher, who also taught me knitting as an enrichment activity up until earlier this year. The girl I sit next to just sat, staring, going “am I dreaming?” throughout the entire thing. I found it all highly amusing. My chemistry teacher has been trying to convince us to do chemistry degrees on the basis that “who wouldn’t want to end up where I am now?” I laughed rather loudly.

My history teacher is the most amazing though. She keeps referring to Ferdinand and Isabella as Ferdy and Izzy, which she claims is why she’s not allowed to teach us the side of the course they feature prominently in. She also showed us a video, partly because it was an excellent source, and partly because she says she is madly in love with Michael Wood. I love my history class so much. It is all kinds of awesome, and we kept to keep our decent teacher next year and get a different one to replace the rubbish one! Score.

Right now I should be doing history homework. I have a very busy weekend full of theatre rehearsals, so I’m not sure when I’m going to do the rest of it. My brain is too dead to sift through more reading on the conquest of Granada. I am tired and want to sleep. Lots of sleep, but the hot weather is playing havoc with that. I dislike hot weather very much, and have already got heat stroke once after being at the bus stop for ages because of a giant traffic jam that morning. Blegh.

But school is good, so I am thinking about that, not the bad things. Cheery thoughts!
croissantkatie: (Default)

Feeling rather drained, despite only having to go in to college for about two hours to have next year explained to us. It wasn't anywhere near as bad as I expected, but few things have ever turned out to be quite that bad. All the stuff about uni applications is terrifying, particularly my form tutor's opinions. I know she is merely trying to improve my confidence but saying that my "performance does not live up to my potential" could be taken several ways. I know she was getting at the fact that stuff has interfered with my learning and that it's alright because she knows I can do better and will do better. I know this, but it's still a struggle to make myself believe that she meant that, rather than "you could do better and you should do better but you're not trying." Also, I am not convinced that suggesting I apply to Oxbridge next year is a good thing to do, even if it does take in my plans to have a gap year before I go anywhere. My stress levels are far too high as it is.

This is all rather silly and trivial, but I am in a ranting mood. Normally I just sulk, so this is a novelty. School clearly does weird things to my brain. I would claim it was the fumes from the chemistry department, but they're in a separate building on the top floor so as, to quote my teacher, "if they blow themselves up, they don't blow anyone else up as well." And my teachers aren't even the ones who like exploding things!

The World Cup is taking over my life. I knew I'd end up watching a lot of it, due to my family, but I hadn't forgotten in the last four years just how much that meant. I don't mind too much, the World Cup is slightly different to normal so I can survive watching at least one match a day.  My Dad also roped me into joining a fantasy football league with the rest of our family and a few other people. This is a wonderful opportunity to illustrate how delightfully competitive my entire family is. I think fourth place in our league of 10 people is pretty good for a team selected on the basis of me going "ooh! Cool sounding name!" I mean, who wouldn't select a goalie called Julio Cesar?

For the past week, I have done pretty much nothing as I finished my exams and don't have to go back to school until Monday. Not looking forward to that, although it will be good to see everyone again. There are very few people I talk to at college who I am actually in contact outside of school. Also on the plus side, returning to college will cut back on my caffeine intake. I have been drinking far too much coffee over the past week. I simply can't resist my Mum offering to take me to Costa. Ever.

Football.

Today is a big day!

Not for me, all I'm doing today is going to the doctors and then going into school for an hour of enrichment (go knitting!). Admittedly, going in for knitting and then coming straight home again does mean I'm going to spend more time on the bus than in college, but if I don't go in at all today, it'll be so much easier for me not to go next time and it will all spiral out of control.

But back to why today is a big day. Now, my brother does a lot of sport. You name it, he probably plays it. The thing he does most of though is football. He plays for three teams - his club, his school and the local district squad. The district team have been doing rather well lately. They've been playing in a national cup and they're through to the semi-finals! I am so proud =D

So yes, there will be lots of finger crossing going on this evening, because if they win this match they're through to the final which is being played at Anfield. Ha. Even I'm excited about that!
croissantkatie: (Default)
I got from a week in Yorkshire with my family yesterday afternoon, which turned out pretty much as expected. I managed not to get a decent cream tea anywhere because everywhere the scones looked half decent, the cakes looked even better. I also discovered just how unfit I am, although that is not entirely unsurprising as I haven't done any proper exercise in nearly six months. So long as I don't end up going on any long bike rides or trips in rowing boats soon I should be alright!

I am now very tired as I've been sleeping very badly. I've still been getting enough sleep but, as someone who needs a fair bit of sleep to get by alright, it's not been great. I have the next week off for the Easter holidays so hopefully I'll be able to catch up before I go back to school. And hopefully start revising properly, but that requires more energy than I have right now, even taking into account the fact that I have now dropped physics. It was a bit of a wrench doing that, but I think it's for the best. I might actually do nearly as well as I'm capable of now. We shall see!

And tonight is the next episode of Doctor Who! I really enjoyed The Eleventh Hour, and I'm hoping I'll enjoy this episode too. I'm slightly confused about why it's on so early, which probably means that curry will have to wait until afterwards, or during Confidential. Silly BBC, messing with our family traditions.
croissantkatie: (morgana)

This is a post made out of relief. I have finished my physics coursework. It is ridiculous and there is something like 14 pages of numbers and 11 graphs. There is also nowhere near as much writing and analysis as anyone else has done. I do not care. I am fed up with the thing and it is done. That is what matters. And anyway, I like to think it is because I am concise and succinct and did not waffle at all.

And also, from [livejournal.com profile] simlo 

If you see this, post a poem in your own LJ today.

Well, technically, I saw it yesterday but that is beside the point. I'm feeling nostalgic and have never been a big reader of poetry, so you get something which makes me all nostalgic for being small! And just to warn anyone who reads it, it is fairly long.
Teddy Bear, by A.A. Milne )
croissantkatie: (coffee makes the world better)

I am very tired because I went to aerobics with my Mum last night for the first time in several months. I didn't even try too hard as I fell down the stairs yesterday morning. I know have several rather fetching grazes and a bashed up knee. Normally I don't get injured. My house has very perilous stairs, everybody who doesn't live here goes up them very slowly. I however don't. Ha. Serves me right really for pushing it until the very last minute to get up. I never learn.

This week at school has been dominated by tests/essays/assessments/coursework. Apart from the odd essay, I really dislike all of them. I sat a two physics tests (dropped quite a few marks due to a mild panic attack) and practical chemistry coursework (again, had a mild panic attack so my results weren't as accurate as they could have been but I don't think I lost any marks). Also this week I got back 2 history essays (one from November, one from September) which I was beginning to think I would never get back. I got 5 marks worse between the first one and the second. On a slightly more positive note I got a chemistry test back (all these tests do dreadful things to my nerves, one day I really should find a system to cope with it all). I got a B! I was ill for material which made up over half the test! Haha! And even though it's kinda mean for this to make me even more happy, I know someone who was there for all of it and got an E. I may actually pass some of my AS levels. Yes!

Also I am going out Saturday. I'm. Going. Out. Admittedly it is for a friend's birthday (everybody's either paying for driving lessons or saving up for them, so none of us have masses of money) but it is still out! And admittedly, it is going out to eat Chinese food, which I love but may be allergic to something they put in it if my past experiences are anything to go by. This is something other than school related woe (although I am currently trying to convince myself that really, there's not so much woe, which isn't going great) to think about!

Now, I think I am going to go read because reading is nice and fun and I'm fairly sure I can pass off my John O'Farrell history book as educational. Funny and educationally are not mutually exclusive. Or at least they shouldn't be!
croissantkatie: (marvin)
I honestly thought I'd make it through a whole week at school this week. Partly because I've been feeling loads better, but mainly because school has only been open for three and a half days this week. We finished at lunch yesterday and there were no classes due to the wonder that is open evening. Unfortunately I completely failed to meet that goal. I had some blood taken for testing first thing Monday morning and nearly passed out. This was something that neither my Mum nor I had even thought might happen. It had nothing to do with me seeing any blood or needles. I'm fine with both, although I didn't watch the nurse take the blood fascinated in the way one of my friends does. Apparently I just don't react well to it. I dread to think what might happen if they had to take a serious amount of my blood. They only took a couple of phials.

The result of this was that I felt really dizzy pretty much all day. I delayed going into school for a while until I started to feel better. Sadly I only felt better because I'd been sitting still not doing anything and half an hour after I got there, I had to come home again. I have however managed to be in school for the whole time it's been open apart from Monday.

Despite all this time off, I am still behind on SJA. Monday I couldn't look at a computer screen without going all dizzy and today I've been working (or at least, attempting to). So it's looking like I won't get more than 2 minutes 10 into part 2 of Mona Lisa's Revenge until the weekend as tomorrow evening I am (rather remarkably) going out!
croissantkatie: (faulty towers; dead)
So, I've been having a very nice half term so far. Even though we never made it anywhere on Monday as a family (the arguing didn't wait until we'd left, it didn't even wait until Monday. Yep, the dispute happened at eight o'clock on Sunday.), things have been alright. My one major aim of the holiday - to catch up on the current episodes of SJA so I could watch it when it's actually broadcast - has been achieved. I am very happy about that. Roll on 4:30!

The downside is that as I've been feeling pretty upbeat and positive I thought now might be a good time to get some work done. Apparently not. It's not so much that I look at my work and don't feel motivated to do anything, it's that I look at it and I feel as I have no clue what to do. Where to start, what any of it means, that sort of thing. It's seriously annoying me. I've had this problem briefly before in that for the past couple of weeks my Dad has had to sit with me and prod me whilst I'm doing physics homework. My parents don't have time to do anymore handholding for me *sigh* I will try again in a bit, hopefully I can find something necessary but not scary to fill my time with. I hate feeling as if I haven't achieved anything.

And apparently the new series of Spooks starts early November (I've forgotten the precise date)! I think I'll look around for stuff about that once I've got somewhere with my work. Onwards and upwards!
croissantkatie: (lewis at the pub)
I'm currently not doing much, apart from being very tired which really, is the main reason I'm doing nothing. What with the tiredness and the perpetual yelling of equations in everything apart from ceramics enrichment (yay coil pots! Something I know and have been able to do since the age of four!). The problem with the extreme tiredness is that I haven’t been able to write. Mainly because, what with filling time with school work, I haven’t been able to stay awake long enough to do anything. Plus most of my subjects seem to like killing off imagination and the ability to use actual words. I miss words. I miss sentences which don’t have seemingly random strings of letters in the middle of them and make very little grammatical sense. I’m beginning to wish I had taken English. Then I remember I would end up murdering people if I did that. I might love writing and reading, but I don’t exactly get on great with the type of writing and reading you have to do to pass your A Levels. Well, apart from any speaking assignments. To the horror and utter astonishment of everyone at my old school, I was good at it. I was one of only three people in my class not to get heckled once over two years. The other two were very outgoing, confident guys everyone expected to be amazing. That is something I’m very proud of (and am very pleased I just remembered, because it has cheered me up!)

As of right this minute, I am in my room avoiding the non-vital-not-really-a-qualifier-for-the-world-cup-as-we’ve-already-qualified football match against Belarus. I spent seven minutes mocking their haircuts and reading out the moving adverts before I left. I feel I came out of that rather well! I saw a goal as well as several shots on target. That’s more than I got last time in twice the time. Yep, not a big football fan. Despite it being a rather big thing in my house (my Dad plays every Sunday evening with people from the village, my brother plays in a league which spans several counties and is in the District squad), I’ve never liked it. Give me cricket or athletics any day!

Now, after a gap of several hours, I’m going to go get myself some pudding and bemoan the fact that there are no murder mysteries on at the moment that I like! Hmm. Shame I don’t have more on DVD, I may have to use up my remaining Amazon vouchers from last Christmas.
croissantkatie: (Default)
Well, I can't say I know precisely what to say here. I'm still at the stage of peering at the screen of my laptop and going "hmm, does it work like that?" I have to admit though, signing up for this has certainly distracted me from my worries about starting sixth form. Enrolment day is this Friday, and the nerves are hopefully going to be alleviated slightly by getting a lift in with a friend instead going through the trauma that is the bus. Or more precisely getting hold of my bus pass. The council don't want me to have the most appropriate one. At this rate it looks like I may end up having to spend over an hour on a bus for a journey that should only take twenty five minutes. Oh dear me. But I'm not supposed to be worrying about any of that yet! Enrolment day may be this week, but induction day isn't for a while, meaning more time in the house without my brother around! Oh the peace and quiet.

Oh, and that purple haired cartoon is Crystal Tipps. My Dad says my hair looks like hers (although not purple). His compliments are always down right lovely ("with all that metal in your mouth you look like jaws!").
