whatever that means

  • glenn reynolds says: sarah who?

tiny fragments of perfection

  • if i was all the colors, i would paint you pretty in gold in a picture. (jason mraz/zero percent interest).

  • as i took him in my arms he screamed i'm not insane i'm just looking for someone to understand my pain... (five for fighting/the devil in the wishing well)

  • only the curious have something to find (nickel creek/this side)

  • you dream of colors that have never been made, you imagine songs that have never been played (this side/nickel creek)

  • it's when you cry just a little but you laugh in the middle that you've made it (jason mraz/tonight, not again)

  • don't try to fix me, i'm not broken (evanescence/hello)

another whole box of pandora's

  • i'm not the kind of man who tends to socialize/ i seem to lean on old familiar ways/ and i ain't no fool for love songs that whisper in my ears/ still crazy after all these years (paul simon / still crazy after all these years)

  • but there's something in the way you laugh that makes me feel like a child... aspects of life they confuse me, you and your thesis amuse me... after and afternoon with you... and your rich brown eyes your lips and your dark hair, elbows and exposed knees tossing toward the ceiling... after an afternoon... (jason mraz/ after an afternoon)

a long awaited end

  • face to palm... tear to tear... mouth to tongue... heart to ground... i am in love... (jason mraz/ after an afternoon)

  • there's no place to hide but i don't think i'm scared. (nickel creek/this side)

  • with a broken wing, she carries her dreams. man you oughta see her fly. (a broken wing / martina mcbride)

zero percent mine

  • all lyrics headers are lifted from my pretend boyfriend jason mraz's "zero percent interest"

Mike Rock

My 5th grade teacher "volunteered" me for the school spelling bee because I was the best speller in the school.. I hated it though and was embarrassed so I blew the contest on purpose.. it was not public though so I didn't have to shame my family or anything. I deliberately misspelled "thrice". Got away with it too! And avoided the public humiliation of being in the district spelling bee. Whew!


I'd like to know what happened to him myself. How about a search of some kind? It must be possible; you can let him know that you remember. Even after years, sometimes that's important.


say, mike rock, i didn't find it at all humiliating to go to both district and regional bees. it's never embarrassing to be so smart. :)

BeeBee, i'm curious. i may start looking for him just to say hi, but then again, he might not like to be reminded of being so blatantly cheated by a judge who got his feelings hurt, maybe i'd just be bringing up painful memories. but i think i will look for him.


Boy, oh boy, did that ever strike a chord in me! I have a hefty collection of trophies and ribbons myself, being The Speller From Hell, too.

It's a curse, I tellya! I even find myself circling typos in library books, fer [carbonated beverages]!



I was also a great speller in 4th grade (4 times undefeated - 30 kids in the class).

Of course, by 8th grade, I was playing cello, so my life was completely different :-)


*sigh* great speller and the cello? you have jumped way up my list of cool people, harvey. that's good, since you were way down near the bottom. ;) j/k

  • some stuff the great Frank J said about me...

  • "Beautiful, deadly with a gun, and fellow Alias fan"

  • "There she is, the IMAO T-Shirt Babe, There she is, your ideal, The dreams of a million girls Who are more than pretty May come true if they punch a hippy, Oh she may turn out to be The queen of femininity, There she is, the IMAO T-Shirt Babe, There she is, your ideal With so much ammo She'll take the town by storm, With her all-American face and form, And there she is, Firing in the air she is, Fairest of the fair she is, The IMAO T-Shirt Babe"

  • yowza*

don't make me sissify you

  • please keep the comments "cussin'"-free, and no taking of the Lord's name in vain (including in initials form and in euphemistic form). my grama reads my blog, and i don't like those words either. if you post something i don't like, i will change your wording to make you sound like a sissy.

  • p.s. if you're a troll, i reserve the right to either wingardium leviosa your butt (which means delete and ban you), or the more fun option, to put a pretty bonnet on your head and lead you around on a lovely purple leash and make you do my bidding. yay!!
