Sharks, Jelly fish and squids oh my!

My Squid Quotient is apparently 120.75. This apparently means I should be good around squids. My procrastination is becoming ever more useful. You can find out your squid quotient by completing a short test. I don't know what to say to convince you that this is not a lame post, I'm not so sure about it myself. Then again, the rest aren't that much better. Off I go into the sunset riding my squid.

2 for 1 deal!

I got a great deal today; I went to the cinema twice with no money down. This morning straight after breakfast I took my little sister and her little friend to see the Hannah Montana movie. I have to admit, even with the incredible predictability of the movie's plot and all the jokes, I enjoyed it. It was very lame, but in an endearing way. One section in particular reminded me of Spider man 2, the scene was delightfully lame. The other movie I saw was with my brother, Transformers 2. It was also lame, relying on explosions to drag the lame plot and dialogue. It smacked of milking a successful enterprise with the least effort possible. It was quite nonsensical too, Particularly a certain item with crumbled to dust only to rematerialise later.
I then came home to drop a bog, drop a blog then I'll have dinner. In the end I got two movies and it only cost me one day.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

There was an old lady from Limerick
Who preferred to write haiku
This one mixes both
Haiku in the middle, on the outside limerick

That was lame, I realise, but I couldn't help it. I just found out that Limerick is a place in Ireland, I find that pretty rad. Sometimes I get the urge to try speaking in iambic pentameter, but I suppress the urge as it would hinder the speed and flow of the conversation if i paused to work out the number of syllables I need to say.

A man bought cigars
he insured them for fires
then smoked them post-haste

He smoked his cigars
he collected some money
then was arrested

Sometimes, the above was such a case, haiku just appears in my head, I'm not sure about the fires bit, but i counted that as two syllables. I read the story about a guy who insured his rare cigars against fire, then he smoked them, claimed money from the insurance company, had to go to court to get it and won, then he was arrested for arson, twenty four separate instances of it. Each sentance had a single year of gaol for punishment, so he had to spend 24 years in jail. as I read it the poems just came, no thinking required. Awesome.

Suddenly I have a lot to say after months of nothing, It's pretty poor form I guess, but I'm still not feeling completely comfortable about the whole deal. Meh, whatever.

Silent gratitude isn't very much use to anyone.

I decided it would be fun to try selling out. I don't actually see this as a money turner, but I've always thought it would be nice to have a website with ads on it. It makes me feel like it is successful, even if there's nobody reading it. I would've liked to have chosen specific ads myself, based on ads that I like or products that I use, but I can't be bothered and that's quite unjustified, so that's not happening. Turns out procrastination time wasn't over, hey?
There's a rad show on SBS about towers falling down, I glance at it every now and again and lose my train of thought. I think that if I had any artistic ability then I wouldn't mind being an architect, but as my skills stand now there'd be a lot of buildings fall down just because I can't draw straight. i also hate using rulers, so that wouldn't help.
I hope the ads don't turn out lame, they probably will though and if that's the case I'll get rid of them, because I think I can do that.
I think I want to put it in a different spot, but I don't know if I can do that...

Babies haven't any hair: Old men's heads are just as bare; From the cradle to the grave, Lies a haircut and a shave.

I have been disappointed of the hair of other students at uni, I went the mullet, but that has been the only hair style that anyone would have considered being even near non-conservative or non-conformist. I'm currently growing my hair long, which is still the most out there hair style at uni. I did have ambitions of going something very different; a frullet comb over. This is a mullet at the front of the head combed back. I'm not sure how well this would work, but I may still do that. Probably not though. Procrastination over.

Bacteria is the only culture I have...

I joined, again following my peers, dang peer pressure... On the site I found out that this year I have listened to around ten thousand songs, I was quite proud of myself. it's mainly Foo Fighters too, so that's pretty rad. I'm hoping that I might acquire some mild sort of acclaim of being the biggest fan of the Foo Fighters, but I haven't checked whether anybody else has listened to them more than me. I don't even know if that is possible.

In other news, I'm on placement. In some ways it's awesome, there's cute kids saying cute things, such as my Focus Child. The centre had a reptile show and all the children got to pat lizards, a snake and a crocodile. FC later said that the crocodile was "The best... The best in the West!" That's the coolest thing that I've heard all week, not that the actual thing is said was that great, but this came from a four year old kid. awesome. The placement is also bad in some ways, particularly that I don't like one of my supervising teachers, the one that has decided that she was in charge and would be marking my placement even though she's only there two days a week. I also have a similar gripe to others, writing. probably nobody likes writing serious stuff, but I've procrastinated by writing the first 'blog' entry that I've done in months... irony? I can never remember what is actually defined as being ironic... It seems this is winding up, besides my computer is running out of ink. Tally-ho.
