Magically, you will be able to save the world with us. This includes fun stuff like eating ice cream (because when you eat ice cream, you're happy and less likely to become a serial killer) and making clothes out of recycled newspapers!!!

A surfer once sued another surfer for "stealing his wave." The case was thrown out because the court was unable to put a price on "pain and suffering" endured by the surfer watching someone else ride "his" wave.

So, I was at Friendly's and I was waiting for my friend in the bathroom(outside the stall). And I picked up a roll of toilet paper. Then one of my favorite songs(So Happy together by the Turtles) came on. So I began singing(shouting) the lyrics of the song because there was no one else in the bathroom except my friend and me. And then, all of a sudden, one of my classmates opened the bathroom door and there was me shouting with a toilet paper roll in my hand. Yeah, that's not embarassing...
Turns out, she had to wait for her sister and we had an akward conversation. And I knew she was TRYING to be nice and not burst out laughing or stare at the roll of toilet paper in my hand, but could tell she was going to tell all her friends and I would be ridiculed at school. :(

I can't think of anything else cuz I already have a bunch of good songs on my iPod. by I'm open for suggestions, though.
In other news: Our poll has officially ended and here are the results!: The names Primrose and Coldplay are tied and so the monkey shall have to be named something entirely different. Thanks a lot for confusing the poor monkey, Blinda. Our Facebook is really awesome, isn't it? BTW, I told you not to alienate me from my friends!!! (Read my comment on our wall). Good luck with your summer reading, Blinda, even though you're situation's hopeless. :P TTYS! (Talk To You Soon!!!) ~Nerdette Ari
Hey Blinda!!! Nice playlists. You've got some weird taste in music; of course, that's just my opinion. :) I just went to my HS orientation and they just told us the same old same old. But we did get our schedules and it's kinda scary and exciting at the same time. Some of it's really complicated, but at least I get a study hall (and you don't! Muahahaha! :P). BTW, I really like "Bring Me To Life" by Evanescence and I need to get it on my iPod, as soon as someone gets me an iTunes gift card, hint, hint. Well, guess that's all for now...TTYL! Wish I could post on the blog all day but school is legally binding, so I'll try to get some more posts in when I can. :( ~Nerdette Ari!!! ^_^ P.S. This is a vampire emoticon: :K See the fangs?

Hey there! I made a random quiz because I was bored called "How Many Inconspicuous Details of Life Can You Identify?" and if you're bored or just want to try it out, look at the sidebar to the left. Click the button that says "take-" (yeah, it got cut off) to take the full quiz. You can even see what scores the other people who took the quiz got! Enjoy!!! ~Nerdette Ari
I signed up for a chess tournament at the library tomorrow, but Blinda just HAD to go to Canada and leave me here at home with no ride. Call me a nerd, a geek, some sort of freaky alien, but I really wanted to go because I was CRUSHING the competition at the last meeting. Well, yeah, I won 2 out of 3 games and that's it, but I like to think of it as "crushing." Blinda won zero games. She couldn't even win when she played a six-year-old. :) Heh, heh. I'm also awwwwwwww-ing because I have to finish a summer writing assignment before school starts, which is in TWO WEEKS! Uggh. Anyway, expect many more posts, cuz that's what I'll be writing instead of my assignment until the last minute. BTW, check out some awesome videos in the posts below. They're really good! TTFN!!! ~Nerdette Ari
Frank Sucks. He is so mean to me. Because he yelled at me for stepping on the stupid pretzels that he threw on the grass and told ari and me that we could step on them to break them up and then a few seconds later he's yelling and saying that he always has to raise his voice. I wanted to shout some expletives at him and punch him in the face but there were little kids around. I hate him. And he has no life and he hates little kids. He sucks (insert expletive). Go (insert expletive) yourself, Frank. I don't (insert expletive)in' care what you think, or say for that matter.
My final week of tennis camp starts tomorrow, and on TUESDAY is the Chess tournament at the library. I completely forgot until about a few days ago. So I have to go practice...
And I still have to do my summer reading... I have absolutely NO IDEA how to do the essay. Sucks for me :(
I joined the summer reading club at the library along with ari ( such a nerdy activity), but I didn't get to do even one review yet. I just started the free book, Sold. I skipped to the good part first, if you know what I mean. But the beginning is pretty cool.
So, for those of you who forgot, chess tournament's on TUESDAY. And I don't know if Hannah told him, but I signed Jake up for the tounament, too, so I hope he comes. But I think he would find out because I gave them his phone number.
Tomorrow my dad leaves for Canada!!! And he's going to be there for about a week. I still have tennis camp, but I actually asked if I could join for another week... I think I lost my mind. Hannah and Ari aren't coming :(
Ari's coming back tomorrow!!! I think I'll buy her some cookies...
Hannah's birthday is officially in TWO days!!!! I have to ask her what she wants...
I'm at tennis camp right now! And I'm just sitting around because everyone is going swimming (including john, I think). But I finally found out how to make new posts with my blackberry!!! So now I don't have to wait until I get to computer to make a new post!
Why won't people vote for Primrose? It's obviously the cooler name. Coldplay or My Chemical Romance isn't even Emo. But Primrose is a very cool and awesome and better and awesomer and cooler and pretty and cooler name. So vote for it or the Emo monkey gets some damage. ( you know what I mean, Awi) hehehehe...
So, Ari decided to leave me all alone during tennis camp and go to virginia instead.( she said her mom made her, but I know it was just to get away from me.) So I got a million mosquito bites and it sucks. And I found out today that we might go next week, too, because we are going to Canada the week after next week. :( So Fwancis and Dana were there. And John decided to come back and he said he was gonna be a ball boy for the US open, which is pretty cool. And he might be on TV which is cool too.
Guess what?! I went on a shark dive with my friend (in a cage, of course) and some people from a newspaper were doing a report on the shark dive and they interviewed us! Now we're in an online video on the newspapers website!!! I'm so happy-excited right now! That's pretty good for me, because the closest I've gotten to fame before this was when I got a picture taken of my hand holding a piece of origami. I can't post the link to the video on the blog because certain weirdos might stalk us (don't worry Blinda, I don't mean you). But if you know me, email me and I'll send you the link. I'll just say that I thought it was pretty cool and I squealed when I saw myself in the video. ^_^ ~Nerdette Ari
I just saw a Diet Dr. Pepper commercial and it was really cool! I don't usually say that about commercials, so someone should be recording this moment! You know the commercial with the 6-pack of Dr. Pepper and it's making its way down the aisle and a mellow song is playing and then the soda gets to the candy aisle and it's all colorful. It's just a fun commercial- one that's actually entertaining! BTW, remember not to drink diet soda, kids, because the sugar substitutes are full of chemicals and deadly toxins! JK, but sugar substitutes really aren't healthy for you, so practice caution when you sweeten your tea!!! ^_^ ~Nerdette Ari
Yes, my family and I are back in Virginia! I've actually been here since Sunday, I just didn't get a chance to post... Je regrette! So we're here until the coming Sunday. We've done some fun stuff already- I tried frozen custard today- and when I get back I'll be able to post a ton more because I won't be going anywhere for the rest of the summer. But for now I'll have limited access to the computer (yes, part of my soul has been severed) and posts will come delayed. :( Hope you weren't too bored by this post (I was, actually) so the next post will be on a lighter note! See ya! ~Nerdette Ari
Our coach Frank (Fwank) was awesome and so were the lemonade guys! (They had a golf cart and gave us coolers of lemonade everyday but Blinda was upset at them for always putting the water cooler on the floor and criticizing her squeegee skills). But the awesomest part was today because we won a doubles match against the boys!!! Frank even had to switch some of the boys to see if any of the others could beat us! Anyway, we're feeling pretty good about that but I'm sad that we're not going back. The camp was really fun. :( On a lighter note, Blinda finally went swimmimg today even though her reason for not going the other days was because she "doesn't like swimming". I beat her in a race down the water slides several times. K, that's all for now, so TTYL!!! ~Nerdettes Ari and Blinda
