It's Christmastime. Fo' reals.

Finally, the day of presents and family gatherings and other such occurences. Anywaym, I'm not really doing all that stuff because I went on a plane and am now here in Chicago. Oh my, lemme tell y'all about the ride. There was an in-flight movie. They planned to show us Pirates of theCaribbean II and, initially, it was playing with Keira Knightley and that Orlando Bloom about to be getting married when the british bad guys appeared saying they're all arrested and stuff with some deal about Jack Sparrow. Then--crackle, shizzy--they can't play Pirates II no mo'.

OK, OK. Them peoples gonna show us The Da Vinci Code, but then they figured the film would be too long for the flight. ...Dang, what we gon' watch now? Revelation--they decide to show (oh, man...are you ready? you better be ready, ohh man. some good stuff 'bout to come up here--) Little Miss Sunshine!! I was really dying to see that movie (uh, some super good reviews and Steve Carell, oooohhhmmmm.) It was totally great; the funny, the real-life-like drama, the heroin snorting, the proust, the nietzsche, the car problems, and the pageant. Things we can all relate to.

I finally understand that whole nietzsche deal and the exterme reversal-like way it was portrayed. What really freaked me out the most was theLittle Miss Sunshine beauty pageant because those little girls were overloaded with make up and hair products. It was scary. Olive was super cute. The Rick James Dance! oh. oh, those were some nice times. I was surprised to hear Sufjan Stevens in the movie. Chicago played in the background while the family started their trip to California. I vaguely remember some blog a long while back maybe mentioning that...about the LIttle Miss Sunshine and the Sufjan. Hm, Hm.

Other new chicago news: Went to my old house. It was so weird to see some Christmas lights and other decorations on the place I used to live. Really strange. Um. Yeah. The expressway was all backwards..exiting from the left lane? I didn't remember that.

spreading pre-Christmas cheer

DIck in a box. It's what everyone wants.
You know it. Spent the majority of my fourth period class trying to watch this thing and my friend got quite frustrated. It's a good chunk of funny.

don't be an ERACIST

"I need an eraser."
"Here you go."
"I don't want a green eraser, I want a white eraser."
"What? This works just fine."
"No, give me a white eraser."
"Fine. Here."
"Finally. Thanks."
"You know what that makes you?"
"An eracist."

Haha. That's supposed to teach a lesson. I don't know. It started when someone started talking about jimmies (chocolate sprinkles) and cannibals. Yeah. It was a good deviation from the regular note-taking and lecturing. Did he fake it? Indeed.

Back to school tonite to watch me some good Hamlet. "To be or not to be that is the question whether 'tis nobler..--to sleep to die..ay that's the rub..quietus....with a bare bodkin? soft you now, orisons Ophelia. Nymph, sins remembered." I don't know. That's what I mostly remeber from the great soliloquy. I've seen about....5 versions? Yeah. I made a funny little version sheet that's all, interesting with the five different actors playing Hamlet are saying parts of the "to be or not to be" speech, trying to demonstrate who's better. Looking forward to seeing Mel Gibson cry as he confronts skulls.

sodomy, sausage, salami ... it's all the same.

I think today was mostly very bad. People were, how should I say this, judgemental? Prejudiced? Generally to that effect and I was tired. I don't like being responsible for things, man. Leave me be.

I watched some Army of Darkness last night. It was really funny. Sponteneous viewing of Family Guy too. Yeah. It was a nice break from stressing over new recommendation considerations. "Boomstick". I like that. Heh, "Shop smart, shop S-Mart(TM)". I totally have no idea if there's that little TM thing there, but--ok.

Another issue plaguing me: long overdue homesickness. Who misses the Lucky Dog and egg foo yung? Who misses a big back yard with a lonely cherry tree? Who misses trips to the museum of science and industry? Ohhh, you know it be me. I don't know, I've been thinking about life if it remained a relative constant for me. Like, the unchanging variable or controlled experiment. I'm just sick of here. Maybe I can go home soon.

Today in school let us share needles (based on an entirely true tale)

"the single and peculiar life is bound with all the strength and armour of the mind to keep itself from noyannce but much more that the spirit upon whose weal depends and rests the lives of many the cess of majesty dies not alone but like a gulf doth draw what's near it with or it is a massy wheel fixed on the summit of the highest mount for whose huge spokes ten thousand lesser things are mortised and adjoined which when it falls each small annexment petty consequence attends the boistr'ous ruin never alone did the king sigh but with a general groan."

A part of Rosencrantz that must be memorized. Next is Polonius. Ok. My week thus far has been unfunnish. One nice little snippet, perhaps, is the abundance of interesting movies on the telly (safe haven of old; a friend most true). Memorable watch of the week:

Cool Hand Luke

Curiosity lured me into flipping the channel to watch this; the only thing I knew was that Paul Newman was in it. The colorized version was on, showing the scene when there's this snake and all the chain gang guys are trying to get it and Luke gets it and the guy with the reflective-sheriff-like sunglasses shoots the snake's head off (way, way cruel in my opinion; shocking also). I think I saw about 5/7ths of the movie, but it was all good. Yeah. I would go all into detail about other subjects from the movie, but I don't really want to do that stuff.
I'll provide another nice Luke here.

(little Luke! what was up with those eggs? and that "eyes" guy shot another animal, a turtle, later on that they were gon' eat. and the warden-ish guy with the funny voice, "what we have here is a failure to communicate.")

Also view'd: Monsters Inc., Velvet Goldmine (yeah..yyyyeahhh. mmmyeahh.) ... things I've seen before and now? Oh! I had the best time playing some GTA. That is fun.
