...start preparing yourself now, because when i see you i'm giving you the biggest hug. ever...

About Me:

I am a proud supporter of any team that bears the name "The Sitting Ducks" or "The Rushing Turtles" or "The Bumps on the Logs".
I like to dance in the rain--especially when there's thunder and lightning.
I like to sing Christmas carols in summer, but refuse to sing them in December.
I'd rather go to school than sit at home doing nothing.
If animals could turn into people, I would marry my cat without hesitation.
I am one of those disorganized organized kinds of people.
I think Big Foot, the Yeti and the Loch Ness Monster all exist.
I'd rather sit on the floor than on a chair.
And when I do sit on a chair my feet have to be folded beneath me.
I laugh at all my jokes, whether they're funny or not.
I pretty much laugh at anything, whether it's funny or not.
I can make a meal out of jelly-beans and chips and hummus
I cannot stand in front of my bathroom mirror and brush my teeth.
I only wear mismatched socks.
I can claim I'm tired and then spend another four hours on my computer doing absolutely nothing.
I read books more than 20 times each.
I am a firm believer that chocolate has magical properties that can make everything better.
I believe that doctors should prescribe Chicken Soup instead of Tami-Flu or other medicines.
I make really good cookies from scratch, but I burn Scoop 'N' Bake.
I'd rather eat the cookie dough than the cookie anyway.
I am the kind of person who will find something to trip over on a perfectly flat surface.
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple...
I am who I am.

Favorite Quotes:

I'm here because Heaven didn't want me and Hell thought I'd take over.

HA! I can't go to hell, Satan still has that restraining order against me.

I wonder if it's possible to have a love affair that lasts forever. - Andy Warhol

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. - Benjamin Franklin

It is the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance.

You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

If you trip while dancing, just make it part of the dance.

A lie is halfway around the world before the truth has the time to put its pants on. - Winston Churchill

You are about as useful as a one-legged man at an ass kicking contest.

You are slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter.

Making people laugh is hard. Especially for someone who is not happy.

Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally.

Japan and the U.S. are in a canoe race. Japan has eight guys paddling and one guy shouting directions. The U.S. has one guy paddling and eight guys shouting. And they wonder why they're losing.

You can't run from trouble. Ain't no place that far.

Giving up doesn't always mean you're weak. Sometimes it just means that you're strong enough to let go.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

In the end what matters most is:
How well did you live.
How well did you love.
How well did you learn to let go.

I play by my own rules. Nobody else's. Sometimes not even my own.

You should never take life too seriously because you will never get out alive.

When life hands you lemons make Apple Juice, and then sit back and watch in amusement as people try to figure out how the heck you did it.

I'm an early bird and a night owl, so I'm wise and have worms.

If I loved you less I might be able to talk about it more.

A heart will never be practical until it is made unbreakable.

I wonder how many people never get the one they want, but end up with the one they're supposed to have.

Live your life so that when you wake up in the morning and your feet hit the floor Satan shudders and says, "Oh, shit she's awake!"

True love can not be found where it truly does not exist. Nor can it be hidden where it truly does.

Denial isn't just a river in Egypt; it's a frickin' ocean.

There is no happiness in love except at the end of an English novel.

Smile: It keeps people wondering what you're up to.

I love the nights I can't remember with the friend's I'll never forget.

Even a blind squirrel has to get a nut once in a while.

Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

Nothing is over until the fat lady sings.

True love is when you find a guy who picks up the pieces of your broken heart and puts it back together again, keeping for himself a piece, and replacing it with a piece of his.

Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart.

You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. - Dr. Seuss

The hardest thing in life is watching the person you love, love someone else.

Love is when you shed a tear and still want him, it's when he ignores you and you still love him, it's when he loves another girl but you still smile and say "I'm happy for you" when all you really want to do is cry.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. - Dr. Seuss

Insane...Eh, we prefer the term "Mentally hilarious".

My imaginary friend filed a restraining order against me.

Just when you thought I couldn't say anything more retarded...I go ahead and amaze you once again.

Sometimes it is best not to question your friends and just help them drag the body bag into the river.

Favorite Book/Movie Quotes:

Favorite Poem: Remember

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

- Christina Rossetti

John: I'm going to touch the punching bag in the back of my throat.

John: My dad and I were setting up the electric fence for our dog so that when she goes outside she won't get hit by a car. My dad told me to take the collar and try to find where the edge of the fence was so that we could mark it with something. The collar is supposed to tingle when you get close to the fence, right? And so I felt it tingling, but that part must have slipped my mind because the next thing I know I'm gettin' electrocuted. It hurt like hell, man. If I were a dog I'd never go near there.

Dani: (Sleep-talking) Do it. Do it! DO IT!

Eric: Don't hesitate to check anyone out there.

Rin: I don't know. You wouldn't really talk much, I think.
Liz: Why?
Rin: I just can't imagine you speaking Chinese.
Liz: Well, I wouldn't really speak Chinese. I'd just have an accent and run a restaurant and say to all the neighbors, "We no see your cat. Stop asking."

Eric: Poe, Hawthorne, Melville, Thoreau, Whitman...
Mr.G: Good. Good.
Eric: Poe was a pessimist; Hawthorne liked adultery;Melville had a thing for boats; Thoreau was an introvert and Whitman was presumably gay.
Me: Well, that's America in a nutshell.
Eric: Yeah, we're all gay, pessimistic ravens who live on boats, cheat on their wives and don't talk to anyone.

(after my self-proclaimed favorite character returned)
Rin: What is this? What is this?! He's alive!? He should be dead!
Me: Yay! He's alive!
Rin: If it were my favorite character he would have died.

Jess: (answering her phone) Hey, Dad!
Caitlin: Jess! Put your shirt on!
Me: Caitlin!
Jess: (hangs up the phone) I think he heard you!
Jess's Dad: Hey, Jess, who's Caitlin?

Liz: You like him...You want to kiss him!
Me: Shut up or I'll smuggle you with this pillow!
(its supposed to be smother)

(playing Wii MarioKart game with Rin)
Rin: How'd you get in front of me? I'm gonna kill you!
Me: You know. I think that if I ever were to kill someone, I'd do it while they were alive.

(playing Wii MarioKart)
Me: Rin! You got a rank of E! That's below an F! How'd you manage that one!?
Rin: It's E-F. E comes before F.

Me: Rin, we should start wearing matching shirts.
Rin: No.
Me: This isn't a democracy. You don't get a vote.
Rin: Then what is it?
Me: This is a dictatorship. I am the dictator. And you are the ship!

Rin: (chasing after me) Give me back my banana...muffin!
(It's all in the context.)

(A Telemarketer called my Aunt...who is happily married to my Uncle.)
Telemarketer: Hello? May I please speak to the man of the house?
Aunt K: I'm a lesbian.
Telemarketer: (very, very flustered) Oh, uh...well...
Everyone around: Laughing their asses off.

Eric: You know what Zach, just don't breathe!
Zach: (pretends to die. and then wakes up.) I'm alive!
Eric: What's that, the third time you've been ressurected?
Zach: I am Jesus! (pointing at Caitlin) Be chaste! Dammit, why aren't my powers working?
Caitlin: It'd be like me telling you to go forth and multiply.

Marc: (pointing at Caitlin's fuzzy pink bag) Will someone please just get the dead gay polar bear out of here?
Me: Okay. Bye Marc.
Marc: (not quite getting it)...THAT was mean! I don't like you anymore.
Me: Oh, you'll get over it, Fluffy.

Marc: Whoa, who made the muffins? Was it you? Because if it was I'm not eating them.
Me: It was my sister.
Marc: That's even worse! She probably poisoned them because she knew I'd be here and that I'd want to eat them.
Me: Oh, yes. However did you know?
(Marc took a muffin anyway...)

Me: Rin let's be study-buddies!
Rin: No.
Me: No! Rin, that would mean we'd sit on the same couch! And share the same blanket!
Rin: Uh, no. Couch: Taken. Blanket: In Use. Go sit on the other couch.
Me: But, if there was room for the kitty, there's enough room for me. Move!
Rin: No. Go sit on the other couch with the other blanket. I'll wave to you.
Me: But...but, Rin!
Rin: (as if from a distance) Hello! How're you doing over there?

Andy: (because he think's Rin is still next to him) Rin! Rin! RIN! RIN! RIN! RIN! RIN! RIN! RIN!
Me: Rin's not here. She went to homeroom.
Andy: What?! (runs off in the direction of her homeroom) There you are!
Rin: What?
Andy: I was annoying you and saying your name...AND YOU WEREN'T THERE!

Brandon: I have a man crush on Tom Cruise.
John: Why him?
Me: Because they're both really short.
Brandon: Not funny.

John: You know what Caitlin, just shut your nostrils!

Mrs. F: And this genius over here put Manhattan.
Brandon: Why would you put Manhattan instead of New York City?
John: Well, I thought New York City was a state.

(Actual question on one of our tests)
True or False: So far, the test is going pretty well.

Caitlin: Oh no! Where'd Mr. W. go?
Me: He went POOF!
Eric: You know, you two really sound like 5 year olds.
Me: It is good to be in tune with your inner child.
Eric: Yeah, but not all the time.

Me: Nutrients and minerals are not the same thing.
Brandon: Yes they are, they just have different functions.
Me: But that would make them different!
Brandon: John, what do you think?
John: They're different.
Brandon: WHAT?!
John: Yeah, it's like oxygen and air...
(funny thing is, he was being totally serious)

Mr.P: Dee, what is the name of the French cathedral where Quasimodo rings the bells?
Dee: Oh...oh I know this!...The only thing I think of when I hear Quasimodo is "The Hunchback of Notre Dame".
Mr.P: Well, you're on the right track...
Dee: But I can't remember the name of the cathedral!

Caitlin: I was thinking about not coming in to school today. But then I got your text message and I thought "I can't leave her alone with Brandon."
Me: Good. Because one of us wouldn't have made it through the day!

(playing Hangman)
Caitlin: Are you actually drawing a real gallows?
Brandon: Yes.
Caitlin: Why are there two people?
Brandon: You have the exicutioner and the exicutionee...duh!
Me: Is the one who's hanging supposed to be you?
Brandon: Yes, and you're the one pulling the lever.

Liz: I love you! (hugs)
Me: I love you, too!
Liz: I love you more!
Me: I love you more than Dan (her boyfriend) does!
Dan: I'm really creeped out right now.
Me: Well what do you think we did before she met you?
Liz: "I can't put your pants on!"
Me: (hysterical laughter)
Dan: I'm still really creeped out. The only way this could be legal is if you went to Alabama.
Me:(many, many minutes later) It's legal in more states than Ala-freakin'-bama!

Allie: So, you watch True Blood?
Rin: Yeah.
Allie: Who's your favorite character?
Rin: I like Bill and Sam and Eric and...
Allie: Oh, Eric's bad.
Kate: Who's Eric?
Rin: He's a vampire.
Kate: He's a bad vampire? He's MINE! I call him...WAIT! Is he blonde?
Rin: Yes.
Kate: Okay, he's mine. Back off!

Brandon: You're like a witch or something. You should have gone to Hogwarts.
Me: Yeah, I would have been in Slytherin though. Green's my color.
Eric: Nah, you would have been in that yellow house...Hufflepuff?
Brandon: She's EVIL! She would be in Slytherin. Hufflepuff is the house no one hears anything about.
Eric: It's the Independent Party of Hogwarts.
Brandon: Hufflepuff-ians are like the Ralph Nader's of Hogwarts.

(While studying hormones for Biology)
Eric: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Now you're the hormone to my stimulated response!
(and this is how we knew we have become bona-fied nerds...)

Brandon: Give me the ruler.
Marc: It's not a ruler. It's a yard stick!
Brandon: Whatever. It's a ruler on steroids.

Me: I operate by listening to two organs only. My bladder and my stomach. Occasionally I use my brain, but only in emergency circumstances or when there is no one else around.

Me: Rin, what are you eating?
Rin: Chicken tenderloins.
Me: Chickens have tender loins?
Rin: Oh yes...VERY tender loins.

Caitlin: I was just remembering with my sisters about Pokemon, and how if you had the Charizard card, you were untouchable. You were the shit!
Me: Yeah...Charizard was awesome.
(moments and a new topic later)
Me: We were kick-ass!
Eric: We were the fearsome foursome!
Caitlin: We were the shit!...

Me: Ugh. I shaved my legs for the first time today, and I got such razor burn.
Caitlin: I did mine yesterday and I got a huge cut.
Me: I hate when that happens.
Caitlin: Tell me about it.
Eric: I'm glad you consider me one of the girls enough to talk about this kind of thing.

Brandon: Oh, whoops. I poured water all over your chalk drawing.
Me: You are a horrible person with no conscience...
Dee: It's called "asshole".

Zach: Are you freakin' kidding me? 'Catch Me If You Can' was the best Leonardo DiCaprio movie ever!
John: No!! 'Titanic' was!
Zach: (Goes on to describe what a crappy movie 'Titanic' was...)
John: Zach!! Do you even realize that you're talking right now? Shut the f#ck up!

Me: So when do you want to go?
Brandon: It rhymes with Mensday.
Eric: ...Mensday?
Brandon: I meant...
Me: No judgements, Brandon.

Rin: Why are you getting changed for dinner now? We don't have to be there for over an hour!

Mom: I look like a Lilliputian in that photo!
(The next day...)
Rin: Yeah, we took a photo yesterday and Mom looked like a Lithuanian!
Me: Lilliputian...

Me: Wow, there sure are a lot of leaves in your pool!
Erica: Salad!!

(doing a crossword puzzle)
Me: Rin, the answer is "Gary"!
Rin: It's three letters.
Me: Exactly! "Gary"!

Rin: The "Bourne" movies all have really cool names...Identity. Supremacy. Ultimatum
Me: Yeah, especially "ultimatum" cause it's got two "u"s.
Rin: ...Yeah, one at the beginning and one at the end.
Me: Aren't there two at the end?
Rin: No. It's like "ultimate" except without the "e" and with a "u-m"
Me: silence Oh...maybe I was thinking of vacuum.

Playing a game: The letters are W, H. You're supposed to make a word that starts with "W" and ends with "H"
Me: Witch!
Rin: Which witch/which?
Me: The one that ends with the "H"!

Me: Can you get me that mocha drink, but without the watermelon?
Rin: What?
Me: I mean whipped cream.

Caitlin: And they swarmed like ninjas from the ceiling!

Brandon: Aargh!!
Me: Rawr?
Brandon: What are you doing?
Me: I don't know. You're the one who went all pirate on me!
Brandon: I didn't rape and pillage...

Love Is Just A Greek Myth: If Andromeda Riviera's life was a Greek myth, monsters would be popping out left, right and center. But since her life is not a myth, she just has a multitude of problems that are causing her life to spin out of control. By chance, she meets the mysterious, unconventional Damien Hayes, whose life is very different from her own. Damien helps Andie cope with the so called 'monsters' in her life, but just when things are getting somewhat bearable again, the worst 'monster' of all finally shows itself. DELETED/REMOVED/WHATEVER...

Uncharted Territory: A series of linked encounters that show the beggining and progression of the two characters'--Kate and Owen's--relationship. Kate is very reserved and quiet. Plainly put, she's not ready for a relationship with someone. Especially not someone like Owen who is outgoing, intense and extremely intimidating. He's also completely taken with Kate, and what will happen when Owen focuses all his attention on winning her over? Throw in a meddling best friend, Macy, who has her own boy problems to worry about and a suspicious sister, Becca, and what do you get? Well, if I told you right out there wouldn't be a story, now would there?

Yay! Thanks to Rollinby for taking on the huge task of being my Beta for Uncharted Territory!

Care-Bear In Love: Some people come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Caroline, or Care-Bear as her best friend Charlie calls her, is certain that Brandon Miller only came into her life for the sheer pleasure of annoying her. Every. Single. Day. But, as she reminds herself every day, she'll only have to deal with Brandon Miller (#1 on her "People Who Must Die And Do It Soon" list) for another four years. And then he'll be out of her hair. But this is Brandon Miller we're talking about. And he doesn't give up a fight that easily.

Oh, and I'm looking for titles for this one. If you have a suggestion (or like one of the ones I have up there), send me a message!

P O S S I B L E . A D D I T I O N S
yeah, yeah, I know I already have an unfinished story and I'm really slow with updates, but when you get a bee in your bonnet it's best to let it out

Whiplash: This is one that I am really excited about. Already have the title. Have an idea for cover art. And have a pretty solid storyline to just frame up, further solidify, and then actually write. I'm confident about this. It'll be here.

On an ending note: Having trouble with writer's block? My discovery is oneword (dot) com. They give you a one word prompt every day and you have 60 seconds to write whatever comes into your head. It's the greatest way to get yourself thinking, and who knows, maybe one of the prompts will give you the inspiration you need to write the next Great Novel of the Century.
