Random Oddity of the Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And today's Random Oddity of the Day is...
  • Pepper spray, when being sold at a guns and ammo store, can be sold for $12.99!!!!!!!!!
I mean, what a rip-off!!!!!!!!!! The tiny, idiot-failure-proof spray bottle only contains 10 one-second sprays (and by "idiot-failure-proof" I mean that the "complex mechanism" prevents you from doing something stupid like accidentally making it go off in your purse or pocket. It will not, however, stop you from spraying yourself in the face, as that would have to be due to the fact that you a) had aimed it at your face, b) had lifted the safety cover, and c) pressed the glaringly large red button while deliberately pointing the nozzle at yourself)!! This means that one can easily spray the whole bottle within 10 seconds at the perv (or "assailant," in more politically correct terms) and pay $13 just for that. 'Nuf said.

Bonus Random Oddity of the Day!!!!!!!!!!!:

  • You sign something saying that you don't have a criminal record in order to buy pepper spray. Plus, you have to show your driver's license.
Yet apparently, you can own a paintball gun and shoot frozen paintballs at people and their cars on Halloween as you please. 'Nuf said.

So yeah, iT's SuMmEr and I'm going to a 6-week program in order to learn the basics of Mandarin Chinese and Chinese culture so that I might bridge the gap between the U.S. and China in my successful future career!! I'm gonna miss you Blinda. Je vais te manquer! I'll also miss tennis with Frank and even Bruce and that lady who made you run all the time. Promise we'll practice a lot in the grueling heat of summer!!!

And now it's time for the part of post where Ari blurts all the going-ons in her brain out into a text-format blurb on the blog:

I have "Pieces of Me" by Ashlee Simpson stuck in my head. Nowadays I get "Don't Stop Believing" stuck in my head cuz it's so super-catchy and it's the anthem of this generation. The other day I got the Hustle stuck in my head; you know, the part that goes

do-do-do-do-do-do-do do-doo, do-do-do-do-do-do-do do-doo, do-do-do-do-do-do-do doo

Gaia online is the best website EVER. I'm reading Inherit the Wind which is an awesome-mazing book. It's well-written and really interesting and is written as a play. It's a great book for intellectuals (i.e. It's a great book for nerds!) because it's got really good lines and makes you question your (and others') moral beliefs. And it's historical fiction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guten nacht,

You know--I hate technology. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I type something up--the second I'm about to submit it, the damn laptop deletes the whole entire thing! I had a comment typed up for you (which, was quite long) when the computer decided to protest against me, and demolish EVERYTHING. >=(

Maybe T-squares are brainwashing my computer. Or, woodpeckers could be getting their revenge *shrugs*.

So...did you hear about Micheal Jackson being dead? First, he was in a coma. Then, he went into cardiac arrest...and now, he's dead.

By the way: Best god-damn movie ever=Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.

>=) That was a hell of an intense movie. It was better than the first, and my favorite movie, by far.

Seriously, GO WATCH IT...NOW.

I saw it with 3 young boys, and my dad, so, some of the "edge-of-your-seat" parts that got really quiet were ruined v_v. But, seeing as you don't have any younger brothers and/or younger boy cousins that you see all the time, you don't have to worry about that!


Anyways, it had action from the first second the movie started, to the very end, and it was FREAKING HILARIOUS XD. Had me laughing every couple of minutes. I love how an intense, action movie makes me laugh more than a comedy movie. Funny how things like that happen ;-D.

Okey dokey--I gotta go.

I miss you guys *Gives air hug*! We have to hang out one day *cough* in my pool *cough*.

Tell Issy I said hi!


~Amanda (Embrace the high intensity of this comment!)

P.S. Oh...uh...sorry for not mentioning anything that you posted. But, hey, it's 12:00 AM and my mind can't focus on one subject (except for Transformers...that movie was so good...Oh My God...I LOVE IT!)


Best movie ever!


No joke!

For real!


Fo shizzle! (Sorry, I had to add that XD)

I love Bumblebee ^-^

Optimus Prime is always watching (I mean this in a good way!)

StarScream and Megatron can go suck popsicles. XD (hehe...I love the twin robots ;-])

You will see munchkins in this movie!

And a creepy decepticon that's IN-COG-NI-TO and fools everyone (but, I can't tell you WHO the in-diguise robot is, because it'll give everything away!)

There will definitely be a third movie.


Did I mention how much I love Transformers?

Do me a favor--and write a post saying how amazing Transformers are.

If you don't think it's amazing...well...write how amazing I think it is.



You know, I watched that show as I was growing up. I watched it when I was young...and, when I woke up at 6:00 in the morning--I always stayed in bed for an extra half-hour to watch an episode of Transformers: Energon (It was on Cartoon Network).



I want to date a transformer. How sick would that be?



I have an unhealthy obsession with Transformers...


I love you, Bumblebee...

...and Optimus...


...and Jetfire...and other names I can't remember...

Can I state a funny part that doesn't give away any of the movie?

So, there was this man who had to evacuate a plane--and he didn't know how to use a parachute...

Commander Dude: Okay, I need you to pull that handle REALLY HARD!
Man: *While still on the plane--he pulls the handle*
Man: *falls off plane*

Army dude: Did you say good-bye?
Commander Dude: Nope, he's a goner.

That's not word-for-word, but it's close enough.



*Starts singing the song over and over again*

It's amanda, again. I'm typing with an iPod--so if something's messed up or whatever, then you know why.

Well, I came back to comment on your "pepper spray" thing!!! Gosh...that is a ripoff! You know--the second I started reading this, I instantly thought of the Twilight movie :D LOL XD

Oh, I know the hustle song! It's that song where the dance is similar to the electric slide dance (once again--typing with iPod....excuse the horrible grammar and incorrect capitalization and stuff) so, I definitely need to add you on Gaia online (that is--the second I find out my password [this, folks, is why you should always stick with one password!])

Oh--and teresa couldn't find the Ghost Hunt she's not getting the second one....sorry I'm confusing you...I just want to make sure we don't all get the same gift for vicky.

Alright I gotta go!

Have fun in your Chinese program thing! It sounds awesom e :D I'll miss you, though...(always remember Jasper--the ninja!!) and I watched the first two minutes of the Greg thing!! It seemed funny (until my mom told me to get my lazy butt off the computer because I had to "do stuff" and "babysit my brother". It's moments like these when I wish I got along with Matt like you do with Issy! Then again, Issy's fun to be around but Matt...*grimaces* you know what I mean)


Ps WOV=exatim (hmm... Makes me think of exams and trash bins...)

Oh, Amanda, I just realized! If u actually DID hook up with a Transformer, he could transform into a hot rod and drive u around on ur first date!!! OMG, that WOULD b sick!!!!!!!!!!! Thanx 4 commenting (more than once)!!! Lol, the movie sounds good (especially the part u mentioned with the dumb-ass with the parachute ^_^). My fave movies are the action/comedy ones. Hmmm... finding the Ghost Hunt manga might b harder than I thought, although it is an excellent idea for a b-day gift 4 Vicky!!! The pepper spray IS a rip-off (although it IS very valuable and awesome to have)!! I will attempt 2 friend u on Gaia and also post about Transformers 2 (but u may have 2 sit tight until it comes out on DVD... XD) in the very near future!!! Jasper the ninja salutes you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

~Ari (misses art and spontaneous Cha-Cha-Sliding in empty art rooms and 25¢ ninjas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

P.S. Live long and prosper... in your pants!

P.P.S. The WVOD is prompali (which actually doesn't reminds me of anything, but does sound really cool!!! [Join the parentheses and brackets fan club!!!]).
